halfwaythere: Aside for some mishaps with Nissin equipment, I have to say, atm, that I would go with Yongnuo or Shanny clones of the Canon 600EX-RT.

There's something overly complicated or even annoying, like the use of AAA batteries, with Nissin products. I know casual users are probably never going to be bothered but for anything serious I would always go for Yongnuo, if on a tighter budget, or the native system if money is not an issue.

I am used to manual flash, so yongnuo flashes are $30 each.

matthew saville: The more I read about the weird things happening in the Sony camp, the more I realize the system is still not even close to being the right one for me. Lens startup lag time? What is this, 2004?

Oh, and a professional system with wide-angle adapters? Good grief. Talk about a cop-out.

I'm sure all this has a target market of folks who don't mind the "throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks" approach that Sony is taking, but it's not for me.

People say that Nikon and Canon have their work cut out for them if they want to "catch up", but I just don't see it. Sony knows that Canon and/or Nikon could still turn things around overnight, and that's why their speed is as "frantic" as it seems.

Hilarious, you're a LANDSCAPE photographer thats worried about start up times? Okay.

On Sony Xperia Z3 camera review post (148 comments in total)
In reply to:

mateo goodman: I dropped my less than 1 week old Z3. I blame myself for this. But this phone got buttons all ariund the edge of the phone. I was tiing a photo, in trying to avoid touching any buttons on my he edge, i dropped the phone 3 ft height, the screen cracked. Sent to Sony for repair. Sony reurned the phone with h a note: "cannot be repaired to within asony quality standars.

Theres only 3 buttons on the phone, just like any other phone. Power, volume, camera. A drop from 3 ft would not destroy a z3.

On Astropad turns iPad into drawing tablet for Mac post (117 comments in total)
In reply to:

EthanP99: Ipad has no pressure sensitivity so whats the point.

Also ipad wont have proximity sensor to move the cursor around without you tapping on the screen. a $50 wacom bamboo would do better than this.

"Except you won't see on the 50$ Wacom where your poking, you have to guess."

Spoken like a person whos never used an actual tablet before.

When you hover the pen about 1cm above the tablet, the tablet detects where the pen tip is and you control the cursor on the screen before you put the tip to the screen.

IPAD CANNOT DO THAT.

aarif: why Sony did not use this AF in the A7 bodies?

Then how come the a7m2 lights up the little dancing dots in continuous af like the a6000 and not the regular a7

In reply to:

Boomanbb: What camera were you suggesting that has a similar field of view, depth of field, battery requirements, ability to be left running for long periods of time, ability to withstand shock, etc.?

Any camera can be wired up to run constantly, also there are a lot of shock proof cameras out there that have wayyyy better iq than go pro. Olympus tg3 for instance, form factor isnt a concern, have you seen the rig? Its big.

If I were putting together a camera for underwater research and wanted good quality, gopro would not be my first option. Actually it wouldnt even be on the the list at all.

So why use a crappy go pro when theres $500 1" or larger sensor cameras available out there. Since it has to be in a custom housing anyway, why not choose a better alternative?

On Nikon D750 flare investigated: Why we're not worried article (364 comments in total)
In reply to:

jabilson007: If we all bought D750s and shot our photos with flare banding it will become a trend and be very desirable and no repair/replacements necessary. Amateurs could buy the D750 and pros the 1DX for "pro" flare banding. Come on Sony get in on this new style!

i could just photoshop it in.

BarnET: Why is this news
When i see nothing here about the Sony 4k capable competitor that was just announced.

Sony action cam has standard tripod mount without an adapter.

How many things use a tripod thread?

Answer: more than go pro. (without adapter)
