In the video, if you're that close to a tiger with a 105mm lens, you have bigger things to worry about than getting your camera wet!

I really could use one of these, though.

On Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge article (732 comments in total)
In reply to:

InTheMist: I've been down on mirrorless because my first was an x100s which is a slow piece of junk.

Two years later, I tried a Nikon 1. All I can say is that if Nikon was able to use the same technology in a camera with a large sensor, that's not dog-ugly, they would be on to something special. It's QUICK!

I waited until the J5, gambling on rumors that used a, new *ahem* Sony sensor. Very nice, but it would be nice to have more options for depth of field control.

But there are more benefits to a smaller sensor if the noise doesn't bother you. Instead of "f/8 and be there" you can set "f/4 and shoot more".

I know I'm going to catch flack for this, but the totally silent shutter and 10+ FPS can really make the difference between 'the decisive moment' and 'just missed it'.

dcolak: Dynamic range of only 12 stops? In 2015? WTF?!

The 1dX has less than 12, so it should be good.

InTheMist: Hydration?

Mindshift gear has a hydration pocket - that's critical. There is no way I'm walking an hour or two with just water bottles stuffed in pockets.

I usually take an emergency overnight set when I go far off the beaten path, even if I have no plans to stay overnight. I've had far too many close calls, so this could be for me.

I'm really tending towards Mindshift, though.

Thanks, Jason for the clarification.

So close! A half-step to the left would have made this excellent.

In reply to:

mais51: So the Df crowd is not interested in showing off their talent - come on people - that $3000 camera is not for looking.

Kind of a narrow capture window of an already rare camera.

I'm going out today to hopefully get some keepers.

Wonderful portfolio. I have similar kit and also do landscapes, you've inspired me to try more night work.

Airshows are fun!

I have a Brixton (in Cognac leather) and it's wonderful.

I carry it every day in all weather, it's been soaked, snowed on, dusty, and it just keeps getting better and better looking.

It's leather and therefore a bit heavier compared to canvas, but I get a lot of compliments and nobody knows it's a camera bag.

I'm not really a fan of the buckles that they use, when the clasps are open, they clack-clack-clack when you walk, and when closed, the pointy center bit of the buckle sticks out. Luckily you can unbuckle the clasp bit, and remove it, which I did almost immediately because I'm not one to zip or fasten my camera bag - it's there to take pictures! The flap on all the ONAs are big and nobody is going to get their hand in there without you knowing about it.

P.S. ONA, someone was talking about zippers below? Please, god no plastic zippers.

If the side pockets were just a little big bigger, you could more conveniently fit a water bottle or full-size flash in it.

Is it fast?

I was disappointed by my x100s: slow to start, slow to focus, slow to do ANYTHING. Great images though.

InTheMist: Kind of a major screw-up, Apple!

Hey guys, just so you know who Iliah Borg is, he's a (the?) software developer behind LibRaw and FastRawViewer.

Iliah, still, did your software crash, or did you handle it more elegantly by handling the exception?

rsf3127: Now I'll have to rethink my investment in a Leica Monochrom.

Doesn't it come with a copy of Lightroom? It's a MUCH better editing app anyway.

TravelPhotog: Wow! I didn't want a 5DS because I didn't need one. Now I really want one even though I don't need one!

I also didn't consider the 11-24mm because it's too expensive and I don't need one (the 14mm prime and the 16-35mm continue to serve me very well). Now I REALLY want one even though I don't need one!

Dammit!

:)

Hehe, I'm a Nikon shooter, so it's nice to know that the sickness transcends make, model and brand!

You should be able to write "mary had a little lamb" in the EXIF and not have the app corrupt all photos.

I'm not a Leica owner, but everyone puts a little non-standard data in Raw files - the blame is Apple's.

Oh yes, please stop the scenic train, I need to not be a lazy photographer.

Your comment is ridiculous.
