  • Agreed. Mercalli for 4k is only available in the standalone version, not the plugin. It is fantastic with 4k, more pixels to work with = better software analysis. It only renders to mp4 or mov ...
  • I wouldn't go that far. I shoot predominantly handheld with Voigtlander lenses, and only with the longer 42.5 do I sometimes need the help of software (Mercalli) to get rid of jitters. ...
  • If shallow DOF is needed, the RX100 cannot compete with larger sensors and fast lenses. Nobody ever said it could. But there are plenty situations where greater DOF is desired, and a large ...
  • Tenba Shootout 24L when I'm on an excursion. Comfortable, not big, rugged, close to waterproof. Capture Clip on a Thinktank belt for the camera. Various smaller bags attached to the belt ...

    Came home one evening last week to find that one of my Dionaea muscipula had trapped a dragonfly by the tail.  The insect was already dead (possibly from exhaustion or heatstroke being trapped in ...
  • Assuming you don't want to do much in the way of color correction or grading, use natural picture setting, or Cine V, which both yield natural skin tones. Turning down sharpness is beneficial. ...
  • I love my Voigtlander 42.5, it is parked on my camera 90% of the time. Voigt 17.5 is used often as well. That's my 35/85 combo. Sharp enough for me wide open, I much prefer manual vs auto ...
  • Here are some sites where you can get ideas: http://www.photomed.net/ http://www.dinecorp.com/wordpress/ You can get most stuff at B&H without buying a package deal from one of the above suppliers. ...
  • FYI, I am also a dental surgeon we work with residents every week at NYU. We have tried various compacts, it's just too difficult to get adequate lighting without the ring flash. The overhead ...
  • Taking intraoral photos without a ring flash is a crap shoot. Get the Canon 40D like everyone else, with the big macro zoom lens and ring flash. It works. I've seen other DDS try to use compact ...
  • To my eyes, oranges have too much saturation in natural light. You should try adjusting the color grid in WB to your taste. It's easy and effective.
  • Full sensor readout means resolution is better. Jury is still out on how good Sony's implementation of XAVC is on this camera. Stabilization is supposedly a bit better, but I never found it to ...
  • It's for the gh3 but lots of the same stuff applies to gh4:http://cameraergonomics.blogspot.com/2013/04/lumix-gh3-review-part-10-setting-up.html?m=1
  • Video can be recorded at 120fps but if you want to play it slowmo you have to specify speed reduction in the playback software. You can playback at 20%, or 5x slower, to view it at 24fps. Best ...
  • To me that looks like something is constantly adjusting automatically, probably ISO. Check your settings and ensure you aren't in PAS modes. I refuse to do anything auto when it comes to ...
  • Replied in Off to Iceland
    I'm going next month as well! Last 3 weeks of August. I got myself the small Tenba Shootout backpack - a travel tripod fits nicely, it has side pockets for quick lens access without having to ...
  • Clearly WA will suit you best. Re: crime in NYC... I've lived here since the mid 70's but since Rudy G cleaned up the mess, it is very safe especially all the tourist traps. The biggest crime you ...
  • Davinci Resolve Lite works with 4k UHD files, but trimming/ timeline work is not its forte.
  • Resolution is better downsampled from 4k. Noise structure seems to be more pleasing at 4k. Less moire. 200Mbps seems to still not be enough for All-I... I guess it's just not an efficient codec ...
  • Interesting find... Looks like Sony has the market cornered for now. My gut tells me it can handle a very high bitrate. I have no problems playing 200Mbps movies on my much cheaper KDLINKS media ...
