huyzer: Very cool.

it won't... you need to buy at least a used spectrophotometer (clean the dust from it) - and the cost will be less ... try something like EFI ES-1000 Spectrophotometer for example, they go cheap on eBay...

On Sony: An eye on focus article (763 comments in total)
In reply to:

Class A: Could you not have chosen an AF point manually in your first test? The vast amount of shots were unusable with the nose being in focus but not the eyes.

It would be extremely disappointing if this were everything the camera could achieve with third-party glass.

BTW, if a lens requires AF microadjustments with a regular PDAF system then it will need the same adjustment with a sensor-based PDAF system. The only problem the latter can avoid is a constant offset which a regular PDAF system can compensate with one global adjustment as well.

If the A7R II is immune against FF/BF issues then because it employs CDAF in the final stages of focus acquisition.

> BTW, if a lens requires AF microadjustments with a regular PDAF system then it will need the same adjustment with a sensor-based PDAF system.

not if there is misalignment with a separate optical path for off sensor PDAF, because the issue might be not in the lens but w/ submirror assembly (that directs some light down to off sensor PDAF module) or off sensor PDAF module itself - in those case on sensor PDAF will not have issues... and CDAF is not totally immune to BF/FF - if the lens has focus shift and focusing is done wide open then even CDAF can get BF/FF

On Lee releases pricing for SW150 Mk ll filter system article (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

Papi61: "The holder itself will cost £150 including VAT, while lens adapter rings will be £93.60 (...) The price of filters starts at £68.32 for color grads, while the Big Stopper and Little Stopper filters are £132, and the Polarizer costs £180."

So, if I wanted a polarizer for my 14-24, it would cost me £424 (i.e. $655 US)

Wow...

actually you are... kidneys to start with

> You dont know that the new Sony compatible receiver wont also have the connectors for the other brands as well.

no we don't - they might as well have both Sony connectors and all the contacts for normal systems... but then you will have 2 different Cactus V6 devices... and all that because Sony can't stop playing with hot shoe mounts

> I understand from Cactus that a Sony version of the V6 is currently in development, using their new multi interface shoe. Hope it'll be released soon!!

the question is whether Sony version of V6 will have contacts matching non Sony flashes too - otherwise you will be again locked into bying something that couldn't be used with different flashes, from other systems, while the beauty of this V6 is multiplatform support by providing the fullest set of connectors for different systems in one hot shoe, even when different systems are using different subsets of those connectors...

> The Minolta hot shoe on Sony cameras (inherited by Sony from the Minolta purchase) has been replaced -

I kinda have A7 :-), so I know - that does not change the fact that it still requires different connectors to control the power on flash ... so the version of Cactus V6 for Sony shall be physically different from this one, where you can just have a firmware change and set of contacts on hotshoe matches canon, nikon, pentax, olympus/panasonic... Sony only have a central pin matching that - and it is not enough... so Sony made a bad decision for us, users

In reply to:

bluevellet: Looks like a winner.

But flash synch speed and especially fastest shutter speed should be better in a camera of this class. All those nice, fast primes with Fuji but you either have to stop them down or slap some filters on them to shoot in broad daylight.

E-M1 does 1/400 x-sync with non TTL flash on camera, 1/320 with FL-LM flash, 1/250 with big TTL flashes... how about HSS and remote TTL control on Fuji ?

Ben O Connor: How come a "fujisensor" cam can be rated higher than micro 43 cam. in spesific areas.

There is the ultimate art director of M43 ; Olympus E-M1
There is the amazing movie director of M43; Panasonic GH-3

And does fuji better than those two in spesific areas such as ... almost all areas ? COME ON !!
