  • Yes.  See here: (1) https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61972540
  • Depends on which camera and accessories you have. For example, Nikon bodies often have a dedicated network guide, such as here: (1) https://download.nikonimglib.com/archive2/D3Hdt00U63Jn02UTAfZ29lvUN19 ...
  • Simple:  you go to the appropriate redundancy option. For example, if you are using your phone for live redundancy, you pull from your phone.  If you are using an FTP server, you go there.  If you ...
  • The nonsensical path is yours in assuming that every camera has dual slots. They don't. And there are cameras with single slots. The way process works is it either breaks or it doesn't. "Yes and ...
  • But you don't take two cameras (for each camera you would have taken) with the same lenses, where the cameras are rigged together and have synchronized shutters, do you? Really? Where did you get a ...
  • But you don't take two cameras (for each camera you would have taken) with the same lenses, where the cameras are rigged together and have synchronized shutters, do you? There is a practical limit. ...

    I read what you said, and you are conflating the concept of "mirroring" with "second card slot." You are introducing a false dichotomy. Do you know the difference? Mine is not a strawman argument ...
  • Do your actual, paying customers demand the RAW files?
  • And you can find endless people who have had a card failure, that have had no sizable effect on payment to said professionals. Two slots is not the only solution for redundancy in the field.  ...
  • For the "face skin turned to gray" issue:  Export the photos to JPEG using sRGB (not Adobe RGB), and embed an ICC color profile just in case. For the brightness part, your screens are calibrated ...
  • System stabilization performance is dependent on many, many factors, including: (1) field of view (2) subject distance (3) subject motion (4) camera system motion
  • Replied in No!!!!!
    But that's a true statement.  You are misinterpreting the analogy. If you drop a basket, all of the eggs may break. If you drop your camera off a cliff, all of the cards inside may break. No, it is ...

    I didn't see the "suggestion" that you claim.  I do, however, see a strawman argument. In data, there is a difference between: (1) Mirroring (2) Backups (3) Disaster Recovery
  • Here's what I'm planning to do: (1) Attach a fitted bottom plate, like really right stuff or smallrig. (2) Coat the bottom of that plate ...

  • Replied in Extension tubes
    I don't do enough macro to justify a dedicated lens.  The other day, a moth flew in and landed on the wall.  Just as a test, I quickly grabbed my: (1) Nikon Z6 (2) Nikon FTZ adapter
  • Replied in D850 to Z6?
    I don't have the Nikkor, but I do have the Voigtlander 58mm F/1.4 for Nikon F. Works excellently on the Z6.  Much better than on my D750.  Manual focus with the EVF (peaking & magnification) shows ...
  • What I see in your post is more paranoia and emotional response rather than dual card requirements. Let's summarize those links you provided: (1) Not every camera uses the same type of cards . In these ...
  • What is this statement based on?  You don't ever shoot stars or galaxies?
  • Replied in D850 to Z6?
    I see these cameras as being complementary.  Both, and use the right one depending on what you shoot. No real image quality loss in most cases from 46Mpix to 24Mpix in most cases. AF adapter for G ...
