On Alpha dog: Hands-on with Sony a7R II article (962 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.

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

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

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 (72 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

In reply to:

R Johns: It seems like a fine camera. However...

I just want to ask Canon why they made it so you could wirelessly Live View and adjust Exposure from a smartphone on the 70D, but the 7D MKII you cannot...

Given the 7D MKII already has a fixed LCD, this seems like a MAJOR ball was dropped... lol

wifi on 6D and 70D connected to iPad, loosing distance and you have to reconnect it AGAIN and AGAIN, that's sucks !

If you ever use WFT (WIreless FIle Transmitter) on 1D mark IV, it never happens, just click sent and it will auto reconnect

So, wifi on 6D and 70D is sucks !

wifi features on 6D and 70D is a piece of junk !

If you ever use WFT, YOU WILL KNOW IT

I disagree for using camera tripod mount on any modifications

but we should look more into the thing first

Direct link | Posted on Sep 7, 2014 at 10:02 UTC as 30th comment

Been using Metz 43AF,
Thing is small but deadly accurate
You can't compare Metz to Canon flash piece of junk

You'll know when you use it,
Only thing is, Metz draw lots of power

This 64AF will kill 600EX easily if we talk about quality of lights

On Drone lighting could be coming soon to your studio article (126 comments in total)

this what I've dreamed about flash,
but drone will not work, you will need something like anti gravity thing,
flying blade is dangerous, you can not move easily between people

also mechanism to come back home to your backpack and secondary unit
will replace its position while the other one is charging automatically

I will change my flash system when this new flash system comes out

On Canon and Microsoft sign patent agreement post (73 comments in total)

own a second camera will cost you C.O.A and new license for new O.S.

therefore, make a new connectivity between cameras will also cost you network license for each user I.D.

and other anti virus company will sell a lot more anti virus for EOS cameras

On Stream your photos... via backpack? article (34 comments in total)

I can't imagine the power drained by laptop and heat problems

to all saying about this good and bla bla bla ...

think about simple problems, battery drain and heat transfer inside backpack,
compare to it's practical side, not worthed

also USB mounting and put it in the backpack,
is it stable connection for the USB ? risk from being hit or wreck ?

you need a better solution to do that, something like wireless post to communicate the link

creative? Yes
usable and workable ? NO
smart innovation ? It's kinda stupid
