  • Maybe speculated upon, or even answered (tentatively?), but another user's insights on the following would be very useful, especially since you report having both the GH4 and the LX100: 1. Does the ...
  • Hasselblad's comeuppance. Its next Lunar edition should have a capsule of real moon dust embedded atop the viewfinder.

    Does it come with a gold-plated SDHC card? Could be a deal-breaker.

    The effective price might be only 60% of the list price, if tax authorities...

  • You will get more informed answers if you post your question in a forum sponsored by Premier, Davinci Resolve, or perhaps a forum at the EOSHD site.
  • Hard to believe that T3i, T4i, or T5i owners would hold their breath or become incontinent with expectation over a T6i, if all it offered were more megapixels or WiFi. All are decent cameras, but ...
  • Was this a "gray market" model without any warranty applicable in the US?  Or was there a UK manual, but offered only in Welsh, r-r-r-rural Scotch dialect, or an early Norman blend of Viking and ...
  • There are <$600 cameras that shoot good video, but most require fairly good light, and long zoom challenges image stabiliziation, and tends to entail narrower aperture, so that long shots of ...
  • If your subject is likely to move or rock about, don't play with shallow DOF.  One blur-out will discredit everything.  It is safer to reduce background distraction by control of lighting. If ...
  • You did not stipulate a budget, but let's pretend you are mega-rich. Go buy a FF or medium-frame body, and plenty of big glass. Buy, buy, buy. Little will it matter whether you spend $10k or $100k. ...
  • The problem with 4k video in a small camera is that 4k resolution compounds the challenge of sharp focus and image stabilization.  There is hardly anything more jittery than a small camera held by ...
  • Any "4k Blu-ray" sold currently simply "upscales" 1080p discs to appear slightly (if at all) better on a large 4k screen.  IMHO the results on a 65" 4k screen were no different than when using an ...
  • Any traditional magazine would have a page, somewhere towards the cover, called a "masthead" that explains the publication's address, management, and contacts. It might be a traditional postal ...
  • Costs $900, 1" BSI sensor, focal length equivalent nearly 600mm. Or why not a smart phone?  It could keep busy texting and chatting all night too. Or you could go with no camera at all.  Why ...
  • All photography of wild creatures involves something unnatural.  Creatures naturally keep their distance from humans, unless baited, teased, snared, or fooled.  Very little photography of wild ...
  • There are threads on Speed Booster at the EOSHD forum.  The DPR Nikor-mullahs are not very video-centric and would consider Nikon glass on a Panasonic body to be somewhat haram .
  • The proxy file approach does enable Sony Movie Studio 13 users to edit XAVC-S 4k files on a modest i5 type PC, or perhaps even on an i3 laptop if a project is small.  Unless I am mistaken, it ...
  • Replied in Burri Obituary
    http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2014/oct/21/rene-burri The biographies and albums leave a lot blank: how do such people get paid to coast and wander around with cameras?  Before there is ...
  • Color in "zero light" would surprise owls, dogs, or even bats. 1.7 megapixels might be fine for dashboard or rear-bumper cameras. It would be an improvement over what one typically sees captured...

  • A partial solar eclipse will be visible in portions of North America on the afternoon of Thursday October 23. Most eclipse time lapse shots use heavy neutral filters.  If the eclipse is at mid day, ...
  • Replied in Think Cheap
    Penny wise, pound prudent.  Control of light and stabilization might boost your image quality more than by bothering with 4k or the cost and chore of external recorders. However, if reviews of the ...
