I fear it's more Lytro Vapourware. Sounds awesome but I'll believe it when I see the first movie shot with it.
Buhl213: How can the spring save energy? Isn't the spared energy in the returning direction spent by the extra effort to also push the coil back?
Yes. My thoughts too. Maybe the spring is used to reduce gear backlash (or take up any tolerance to stop the parts moving when they aren't meant too)
I'd hate to eject with D800 and 24-120 strapped round my neck!
Come on, we all know from the forums that a picture cannot be considered good, unless it has been taken on a professional DSLR (not a small sensor or plastic bodied one of course) using a lens with a gold or red stripe.
Really good to see the focus system in action - something that many reviews often miss. I hope this becomes standard on your video reviews. I look forward to the V1 video.
Matteo Ganora: I can't believe... fake panning also here, in a tutorial!!!The second and third shot are the same shot, one with a blur effect on photoshop...
It's a shame!
No they aren't - look at rear of red jacket and front position on track.
Good tips but careful on the flash. Maybe pros aren't bothered by flash but as an amateur bike racer it could be a shock (eg accident) to go over a jump and get hit by a load of SB900s going off wirelessly from an over keen photographer!
It's a new feature - allows you to update from the camera in real time just how soft/noisy/poorly focussed your camera is (rather than actually spend time taking pictures....)
