440 lux modeling light at what distance?3 step video light... How many lux at what distance?
Amazing they can still get away with publishing official spec without the figures that speak of actual light performance...
Where is the sync speed info?GN in feet so it sound bigger...
Sounds like a scam to me.a $500, 1,4kg heavy paperweight or house party strobe light at best...
Edit: i found that the constant light is 440lux at 0.5m at maximum strengthAnd at 1,4kg doest this beast use lead batteries?

At 440Lux this Adorama doesnt sound interesing at ALL.
£1,169.00 for a 4.1Ah battery and a charger£300 for a battery charger
Nobody said anything when the Yanks faked the moon landings.
Looks like foto No.3 is REALLY old!!!Seems like it is taken around 30 ADJudging from Jesus' face, that cross looks heavy like a film prop.
Pretty good improvements overall, I must say.The high res mode does look to work shoving some improvements besides resolution that might be even more benefitial to some.
A few questions remain for me:
1. How long does it take to capture the scene in high res? Meaning what are the shortest interwals between captures?
2. why does the RAW file have 64MP resolution while Jpeg 40MP? Does it mean you make a 64MP jpeg from RAW, just not in camera?
"Clip-on rotating, bounceable flash" and included! O.O
Sounds like the biggest breakthrough in camera world feature offerings!
Almost like the original E-M5 was for mirrorless, this is like for accesories!
Glad to see there are still countries where kids can play war, cops, cowboys and indians without being suspended from school, taken by social services and/or their parents arrested.
Finally a small flash that tilts up. (at least)
30 Lux/1m video light... LOL! I guess its only there to make the feature list on the box longer.
129$, That won't get to people to buy it. Not the right move to get people to look at Metz more and to get them in the black.99$ would look nicer. :-)
AV Janus: I see insurance is covered more easily in US than the old world.Still I can't see how the insurance company is willing to risk battling the Lost claims from lenders damaged by scamming users claiming lost gear?
Also like mos US business, I can't seem to find the main ingredient. How much does it cost? Whats the agency's cut or income?
Or are they just financed from insurance business and keeping the money in escrow?
Yeah, You are correct.
Thank you for the info.Although 5% sounds like a lot to me.I don't see photo gear being at risk as much as car.
AV Janus: Great composite!How did you move the focus?
Oh I see!What threw me off was the fact that it seemed to glow by itself, when in fact it is a macro lens hood! I love it.So macro in fact that it became reversed into a reducing cone! LOL!
KodaChrome25: Doesn't say where ShareGrid extracts their fee.
If you have the time could you explain a bit more on this:
"We also subsidize the rental fees for renters to ensure the best rates depending on location and demand"
AV Janus: OK great concept, but who insures is on behalf of the lender? Since the company doesn't own the lenses why should its insurance pay for damages and to whom?Whose rate goes up, when scamers come to play? Private insurance for your private gear? Does it cover the loss if you rented out, or do you have to withhold that fact?Also how can private persons rent anything? Are they a small business? Where I come from you have to make pretty complicated contract if you wish to rent something private for income followed up by a tax report in the end of year....
Who vouches the lens will work? If it doesn't my assignment might be destroyed.
Thank you for the reply.I hope you guys build a community of honest people willing to make each others lives easier and cheaper in the process.
Are you insured as a private person or a business?
Here in Croatia we used to have only business insurance and that coverage stopped as soon as you exited your studio with the gear. LOL!I am sure it's better now since we are in EU. (nothing else really is)Gotta check, since I am starting my own photo business soon
I had a feeling it was something DIY and precisely thought out by the way you precisely written focus differences. LOL!
I was going about it my way with macro setup idea, only to find out you cant really have smooth precision for little money.Gotta find something that will slide it better than a 10$ china focus rail on the cheap.
What is that light cone thing you have on your macro lens?http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/5806865940/photos/3021478/photomacrography-5
Hi!What is that "light cone" thing taped to the front of the macro lens?Looks interesting. :-)

ShareGrid: Thanks, these are all valid concerns. Imagine when AirBnB asked people to let strangers sleep on their couch! That sounds scary, but people are now embracing it more and more. We have seen this same type of reception so far. In just a few weeks, users have uploaded more than $1.7 million in gear.
We are photographers and cinematographers ourselves, that’s why we have taken extra time and precaution to make a safe and trusted community. On top of reviews, ratings and social verification, we have made our community private. Not everyone who applies get in.
We offer an affordable damage waiver, and for the first time ever, you can buy insurance online in real time at the best rates. If you were to rent a high priced item from most online rental shops, they would require third party insurance. Its up to you to call a insurance broker, compare prices and fax back paperwork.
Our goal is to make ShareGrid feel more like a community of trusted artists vs. a rental house.
This is a great concept and one that has been around from forever among friends and colleagues. It has also destroyed many friendships and good business surroundings.Mix a legitimate business that claims responsibility for things to go as planed and you potentially have a big PR and legal bomb on your hands.The TOS qouted above prove it somewhat. And that is OK.
In friend based loans people willingly take the risk knowing that when SHTF they are mostly on their own.
The service here can hardly be any much different in that respect because that would make it prohibitively expensive to maintain in full legal accountability falling to the lending middleman (service) I hope their potential clients outweigh those facts with the fact that they suddenly have a huge pool of friendly gear they can easily rent.
One thing's for sure, people are crooks! You guys should count that into your equation 2x.Legally distance yourselves visibly, not just in small print. :-)
