Dear Fotodiox, do an Xmount adaptor. I have loads of Nikon glass so I can use it on my X-T2

You'd think that after an almost two year wait, they would have produced a cam with better video quality, OIS, Cinema 4K or even an upgraded sensor. GoPro had better do something fast.

I would have hoped the "Pro" was a 2-disc RAID. These devices will fail you in less than 2 years along with your valuable photos

On article Grounded: GoPro recalls Karma drone (54 comments in total)

The Hero5 is a disappointment. I was hoping to upgrade my Hero4 Blacks to something worth it after a LONG 1.5 year delay. What do we get? No OIS, same quality, no new resolutions, not even Cinema 4K like the Osmo+. The lens area can even use a bigger 1/1.7" sensor which they did not use. Still fixed focus. these features are now found on the Osmo and Sony offerings. GoPro is now officially doomed. Even the new software forces me to create an account and still needs a huge amount of useability improvements. DJI it is!

The depth detection is a great proof-of-concept. Of course if the second camera was farther and the sensor the same as the primary, the results would be even closer to natural.

On article Nikon reportedly eliminating 1000 jobs in Japan (535 comments in total)

It's not rocket-science. Higher-end cameras should do 4K because it presents immense advantages over amateur, enthusiast and pro video and movie makers. Nikon missed it by some 2 years. Then there's mirrorless. When their 24MP DSLRs came out, they offered quite a good amount of improvements and their sales surged (good years). They were also the first to offer class leading HD DSLR video with clean HDMI out. But suddenly they just only offered extremely incremental and novelty features as the competition zoomed by. Being afraid of cannibalising your own products is so 1999. They forgot real innovation and are just concentrating on the fewest new features to put on the next model. But I do love and own their gears so I do hope they change their tech and usability strategy. Go Nikon!

I'll just wait for the 32GB Kaby Lake version next year, thank you very much.

Donald will buy it. It will be awesome.

@ewelch, sounds nice on paper but in reality, it's not. My typical workload is to run PS, After Effects and FCP simultaneously while having a browser open. I have a MBP 15 i7 with discreet graphics, 512GB SSD, and 16GB RAM. Most of the time Photoshop would refuse to pass my huge multilayered files correctly onto an external plugin. And to do a same day video edit requires me to shut down all other apps when I render something in AE. Even a small 8GB boost would make a whole difference as I also own a iMac Desktop with 32GB.

justmeMN: "And then we're not seeing cannibalization between the DSLR and the Nikon 1: the customer is completely different."

So, they won't make APS-C (or FF) mirrorless because it might cannibalize their DSLR sales?

Samsung, Apple, DJI and others broke the fear of cannibalisation biz model and is key to their success.

If it does not explode, I'm not buying.

On article Elevating X-Trans? Fujifilm X-T2 Review (2175 comments in total)
In reply to:

VisualFX: Why Fuji insists on silly gimmicks like the "power booster grip" that increases fps? Can't they build that directly in the camera like Samsung NX1 and 15fps? That camera didnt require additional power to get 15fps.

@Teddyrocksteady. I get more than 35 minutes of 4K in High Performance mode. My only concern is that it does warm up considerably. My a6300 even with the firmware upgrade does shut down (albeit longer 4K time) because of heating.

Demosaicing XTrans @15fps uses a lot of CPU power. Having bought the X-T2 with the grip, I noticed the bigger-than-usual surface contact between camera and grip that strongly suggest not only better weatherproofing but heat dissipation. Doing informal tests of maxing RAW-JPG bursts does heat the camera considerably. The 4K mode not only eats battery life but heats up as well.

Almost there. A few tweaks and I'll be getting it. No worries, I'll wait for the a6700 come June 2017!

Now if I can get that on my A6300 so I can take longer 4K videos =P

On article Google Pixel tops DxOMark's Mobile rankings (116 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mr Bolton: These are made by HTC, and 12 megapixel.. so I wonder what's different about them versus the underwhelming camera in current HTC offerings.

Google simply used a property of newer model CMOS sensors and that is that the system can read each photosite's charge several times during the exposure without draining the charge. Thus it can get multiple samples of the same duration at different shutter (electronic) speeds. You then create a tiny sensor with a dynamic range similar (theoretically) to a MFT. The drawback is the need for far more computational power, especially when handling noise, motion blur and estimation.
