quiquae: I agree with posters here: this asinine trend of calling a non-user-serviceable electronic device "pro" has got to stop!
D5 and 1DX mk II should not be called "pro" devices until users are allowed to upgrade the RAW buffer themselves.

A pro that's also an engineer: Put more access on the mirror or sensor is not wise. Risking damage onto the internals related to the mirror, shutter and sensor is a bad design idea, especially when you are suggesting exposure of the motherboard. The SD slots are not directly connected to the motherboard and thus adding another slot requires additional space. It's doable, but consider the cost, even the micro SSD are quite largish.

Good price. And f/4.5 is forgivable with the VR. They should have outed this years ago, but I guess tis better than never.

Oh, well. that means 32GB MacBook Pros will come next year. More time for me to save up then =)

To be fair, "Pro" cameras are not user upgradeable internally for extremely good reasons. Try designing a weatherproof and sealed camera that users can open and expose the motherboard only to access a micro-slot in tight quarters and still stay weatherproof and mold-proof after that access. Want to upgrade your buffer? How about buying the absolute fastest CF or SD cards?

Wold definitely be a game changer IF Adobe Photoshop port their apps to run on the Pros with Pencil support. The new IOS 11 can handle it now... Edit: Affinity Photo is now on the Pro. FTW =)

On article DPReview on TWiT: Is the Sony a9 worth $4500? (223 comments in total)

No. But I expect the price to fall quite quickly within the next few months to a more reasonable level.

How much without the lens cap?

Nicolas Alexander Otto: Too bad the video output is - as usual for 360° cameras - still a blurry mess. I am really keen on getting a 360° camera for live band recordings, if there ever is one that produces high quality imagery. Seems to be a long time away at this point though.

There are. 3 and more camera systems fits the your needs but they are north of $1500. 2-camera systems are easy for real time stitching but will never realise pro-Quality 360s because of the aberrations at the near edges of the lenses. Until a company comes with a sub-$800, 3-camera, 6K+ resolution (scrolling output in 4K), then do we see real practical use for it such as weddings and events.

On article Sphere of frustration: Nikon KeyMission 360 review (200 comments in total)

Returned mine as I had tried two units and both failed to connect and/or disconnected in the middle of a session. Extremely disappointed. And what's even more disappointing (as a Loyal Nikon User with a D810 and D7200) is that they don't seem to get it or at least listen to years and years of really useful user feedbacks...

I will tell you right away, as a 360 video creator, the sample video is NOT Pro-Grade.

In reply to:

Nukunukoo: Because of it's extremely fast readout speed, I expect it to be close to the performance of Global Shutter sensors.

To be fair, OlyPent is partially right, there WILL still be Rolling Shutter artifacts, but is hardly noticeable. This is better than the compromise of Global Shutter that uses part of the photosite for charge transfers and thus lesser light collection.

BSI, Full Frame and 24MP for bigger photosites. Can't wait to see it's DR and low-light performance!

On article Nikon D7500: Should I upgrade from my D7200? (282 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nukunukoo: have two D7200s as backup for Weddings and Events, without a second card slot IS flirting with danger and a possible lawsuit. Believe me, in the real world, card failures DO happen. Plus, the additional 4MP on the D7200 (am also a D750 user) makes a significant difference for us who do a lot of post-edits. Don't get me wrong, the D7500 is a good camera, but Nikon needs to listen more and make more competitive models, especially since they are on a financial rut and lost to Sony for the #2 spot in just 8 years!

HeyItsJoel. My second photographer/assistant had one failed card just this week and it's a good thing her D7100 is on backup mode. If anything, not only do we lose a huge number of footages, we will also lose the fee and pay for damages. Yorglass, didn't you see my post? I use a D750 with two D7200 backups/standbys. And BTW, what does a @pro photographer@ use?

LOL. I'm talking about a handheld stabilizer, NOT a drone. And yes, people posting while high is something I have to get used to... =)

Nukunukoo: Two things that may be a good thing from the older gear 360: (1) At f2.2, the video quality may be slightly sharper and (2) the lower resolution may mean bigger photosites on each sensor for better low light performance and DR, of course with the appropriate bitrate and encoder. Hoping for a good hands on review...

The sensor resolution is lower but enough for a 4K output that's slightly higher than the original gear. That was what the post was about, in relation to the current version.

That's great. Ambient light has been quite a challenge for us home office users. My only wish is that, while quite extensive, they can simplify their software (more like organising) to make it easier to use. Having easy to access custom profiles would be a plus! =)
