  • I have a QX100, which is a stripped down RX100 Mk 1. Unfortunately, it stores not even RAW and the Play Memories App has by far not as many possibilties as a RX100. But hey, I got it dead cheap ...
  • It is quite simple. What was true yesterday, has not to be true today. And even yesterday, the nGPS unit I use with my D700 is really quick to get the first position after switching on, much ...
  • 950 HK$ would be 110€. In my opinion too much for a non AI. I paid 40€ for my Nikkor Q in good condition and converted to AI. I don't understand the ebay prices of some lenses, I buy mostly at ...
  • Which Nikkor is meant? The 2.8/135 was built for several decades in different versions. An old Nikkor Q, like my own, should be a lot cheaper than an AiS from the 90ies.
  • They had  real 10x zoom lenses, sensor and lens like some Samsung compacts of the time. I was tempted to buy a Galaxy K Zoom, but as a smartphone it didn't fit my needs. Today I own a Sony QX10, ...
  • You may do it, but you will find using the magnifier function with EVF or display unsatisfactorily, because of too much shake. Without magnifier, your pictures will be most likely out of focus, ...
  • I do own several 135mm lenses. Nikkor AI 2/135 is sharp even wide open, but prone to purple fringing, if not stopped down. Low contrast wide open. Integrated hood too small, focusing stiff. Nikkor ...
  • Replied in Auto-iso
    Samsung NX, starting with NX300, NX2000, NX30 has an useful auto iso implementation. My Sony A7II has not. Obviously Sony forgot to include the code they already have in the A7RII in the last fw ...
  • The worst? Kodak EasyShare V705. Nice try with a real ultrawide lens in a very compact body, but the jpeg compression rate was even in its best setting far too high with lots of artefacts. It ...
  • Ok, 350$ for a new lens is rather cheap, but my Canon nFD 1.2/50 was half the price, has less distortion and no funky corners. But I'm not doing video very often...
  • The size of the A7II is big enough, but the similar sized NX30 fits a lot better in my hand, so Sony imo should reconsider the design. And yes, I'm also missing the full articulated touchscreen. Ho ...
  • The same. Or my old Nikkor AI 3.5/400 with 2x converter. But the P900 is more convenient.
  • Actually No to both questions. You will have to wait for the announced Commlite adapter, that will support aperture control and most likely slow AF with AF-S lenses.
  • It's not simple and it requires either Windows or Mac OS. I'm able to update my Nikon and Samsung cameras without these requirements, even my smartphone will do to put the FW image on the sd or cf ...
  • The NX30 has a manual level, but AGC is somewhere in the background. And you need a microphone that delivers a high output level, since the input is not very sensitive. The same microphone at my ...
  • It's not compatible with my NX30, so I don't think it works with the newer NX500. Microphone and GPS were ditched with the NX30, my last camera they work with is the older NX2000.
  • Who knows Schneider as a photographic brand? Ok, I do, but who else? Even in our region of Germany, were Schneider Kreuznach is located, it's a nearly forgotten brand. They have no expertise in ...
  • I think he got the rumor wrong, because today the first working adapter for Nikon AF-S to Sony E is on sale or preorder.
  • Most likely. But it's a 2.0 and against my Nikkor AI 2.0/135 it's a sure bet, that the Samyang is the better lens of the two.Against my Zeiss 2.8/135 C/Y I'm not that sure. If you need a 2.0, get ...
  • I think there has been a misunderstanding. If I had got a NX1, I would use the NX lenses I already own, which means the pancakes, 12-24, 18-55, 60 and very reluctantly, the 50-200. But I like to ...
