zodiacfml: Interesting. I thought this was similar to Samsung's already shipping V-NAND or AMD's HBM RAM. This seems in between both using NAND as storage while the architecture is similar to RAM.

Regardless, I think it is time for camera makers to provide built in memory in cameras. See, 32 GB is the norm for flagship android smartphones these days and that capacity seems fine for cameras starting from $400.

You can buy a handycam with built in memory tp do that

J A C S: Does the GoPro have enough DR to allow a 4 stops underexposure? Just asking...

sure, you can mount 5DsR into that mount also
to get that DR you dreamed of and high ISO performance

Toyota will be happy to provide yours with Manfrotto Suction Cup camera mounts to make it for real

tongki: and still have to change the batteries ???
no wire connections for battery charging ???

All doesn't make sense, in the picture we see GoPro inside or behind windshield,
things like GoPro is huge, I mean HUGE,
if they planned to make a housing outside the car with all the power
connection and wireless file transfer,
that make sense

Other than that, this thing is useless,
who wants waste his precious time only taking care of GoPro thingy ?
His personal driver ordered to do that ???

Doesn't make sense at all

On Alpha dog: Hands-on with Sony a7R II article (1058 comments in total)
In reply to:

Andrew Chiciak: I am a wedding pro...had the a7II with several lenses...55mm, 70-200, 16-35...the camera was capable of some great images, but in the end, it just could not focus fast enough or accurately enough for my needs...we are not talking fast action here, just basic portraiture and candids. In low light the camera was useless for me (like on the dance floor) so I am sticking to my canon full frame bodies for now..hopefully the this new one will solve lots of these problems.

What you mean by standard hotshoe ?
It is taken from Minolta, right ?
The mount that just slide and lock without any rotating lock,
it is not dependable, it's a crap !
Camera headed forward it is firing, upward and not firing

focus very well compare to what ?
I am talking it compare to 5D mark II and 7D that time,
after selling Sony A900, I get 1D mark IV and AF is the best (that time)

On Canon introduces 430EX III-RT Speedlite article (93 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Farace: I don't like throwing money away, but I have to say having used Canon speedlights as well as Vivitar 283 and off-brand flashes, you get what you pay for! The 430 I carry has been around the block more than once but keeps on blazing, ditto the 580. The Vivitar 283s I've used have fallen over on 7-ft light stands, bounced, and kept on going as well. I am not sure the Chinese copies can claim that.

It was meant to do the job as a flash,
Your storry means nothing good for Canon flash,
It only shows that you are a careless people on the work

I experienced this on A900,
I though slow AF already solved but then now,
you mentioned it on your post

So, I still don't believe in Sony for photos,
lack of Flash mount that are not working well also minus point for Sony

In reply to:

HenryDJP: Hey all, my first post. I do YouTube videos and bought a GoPro Hero 4 (4K) and it's amazing but I want to get a 35mm cam to have 2 cameras running in my videos for different angled shots. I also want to go on location and make still shots to be placed in my videos.
This is the first time I've ever owned a DSLR and I generally buy the best because I keep my products for years before upgrading. Initially it was Nikon or Canon hands down but after checking out the Sony Mirrorless systems and the EVF I was sold. I really want the Sony A7RII. It seems to be quite a competitor. I do recognize there are shortcomings. I came across this article, "3 Detailed Reasons Why it's too early to switch to Mirrorless". The author talks about short flange to focal distance resulting in vignetting, lack of 3rd party lens interests and more. Here's the article. http://ilovehatephoto.com/2015/02/23/3-detailed-reasons-not-to-switch-to-sony-full-frame-mirrorless-system/
Is it really too early for mirrorless?

one thing that Sony hasn't changed
and it is IMPORTANT for some pro's is FLASH MOUNT

Sony flash mount so scrappy, it is taken from Minolta mount

On Canon EF 50mm F1.8 STM real-world samples gallery article (140 comments in total)
In reply to:

ondrejbobek: I have it at home - its a fantastic lens for this money! Sharp from f1.8, no problem with contrast and AF is great - much better, than old 50/1,8 II and 50/1,4 USM.

are F* kidding me that this STM lens better than 50mm f/1.4
that's just unbelievable for the price and inside is the same to old 50mm f/1.8

On Canon announces 50mm F1.8 STM lens article (310 comments in total)
In reply to:

PostConsumerWat: anyone have any thoughts as to why the 40mm 2.8 is better than this lens?

The extra 10mm is an advantage,
Besides, another option like 50mm f/1.4 is better quality and video

On Accessory Review: Western Digital My Passport Wireless article (81 comments in total)

I agree with the most part of the review,
but I find it is not easy to know whether the card already copied or not
or in progress, NO INDICATOR AT ALL

That really stupid WD !

I use this to backup videos and had 2 of it,
problem is, I can't be sure whether the files already copied or in progress

Some indicator showing DONE will make it better

In reply to:

arhmatic: Nikon, why in the work are you refusing to include GPS?

Every phone has it now. Please don't suggest I get the dongle, I will never get it.

Oh, I see ...

You want Nikon to add apps like WAZE so your Nikon could direct a route for you while you were driving, right ?

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (502 comments in total)
In reply to:

Steve Balcombe: It's really good to read the actual thoughts of an actual working pro. But I'm afraid her reaction mostly comes across as "Ew, a crop camera".

The first big giveaway was "I like knowing that my lenses are true to their focal length", which is just ridiculous and betrays a complete lack of understanding. I wonder what she did before the 1Dx (i.e. only 3 years ago), when sports professionals routinely used the 1.3x crop 1D MkIV?

Then there is this emphasis on the voice memo feature which is apparently a deal-breaker for her. I can understand how useful it is. Yet she speaks highly of the 5D3 *which has no voice memo feature".

And she lists "no built-in wifi" in her Cons, but no 1-series or 5D has that either.

Fine, these are the observations of a working professional photographer and valuable as such. But I think she decided she didn't like it because it's not a "professional" body in the traditional sense, then she looked for reasons to justify that.

Either she never use WFT
Or she never use crappy wifi on 6D and 70D

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (502 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mongrel: No way I'm reading 310 posts to see if it's been stated (I'm almost sure it has though...) but...

A simple comparison of $1800 for a 7D II vs $6800 for a 1Dx will put the review in perspective.

Boiled down?

"For $1800 the 7D II is one helluva a camera and can (obviously) get the shot even at the professional level."

Anything else mentioned that is considered a "problem" can easily be solved by the purchase of a 1Dx.

I like aps-H on 1D mark IV

I doubt that I gonna like FF on 1DX even I like 1DX

Crop sensors makes some of the work easier
