  • Disclaimer: I posted a similar question on Sony FF forum. My GX8 with 100-400mm is about the same size & weight as a Sony A7xx with 70-200mm f/4, and I am using both systems, so I think this ...
  • steelhead3, what are the 2nds - cosmetic imperfections? Returns? Thanks!
  • DFPanno, I  would prefer to carry just one head, and gear heads are rather heavy and slow / complicated to operate. I never used a gear head, so I  can be wrong. But the weight is a limiting ...
  • I narrowed my search for a ball head to these 2 choices: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=1013734&gclid=CLmk7oXB59ICFVKBswodlmAMMA&Q=&ap=y&m=Y&c3api=1876%2C92051678882%2C&is= ...
  • They are working on placing more circuitry on the back of the sensor, and next step is time-domain acquisition. Instead of measuring the residual voltage on each pixel, they will also measure TIME ...
  • The "larger" Sony Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 is only 36mm (1.5") thick, and weights 120g. Not a pancake, but very small by FF standards. There are also similar 28mm and 50mm. There is no such thing as "small ...
  • You don't have to buy the large, heavy and expensive f/2.8 zooms, unless you are comfortable carrying them around. There are optically excellent, light and small Zeiss and Sony primes, if you don't ...
  • I am looking for lightweight ballhead for Gitzo GT1541T Traveler. The camera is Sony A7R2, the largest lens - 70-200mm f/4. Also, Panasonic GX8 with Leica 100-400mm (almost the same size and ...
  • My last two trips to Alaska (love that place!) were with M4/3 cameras - one with E-M1, and one - with GX8. I took some lovely photos of beautiful landscapes ans seascapes, whales, birds, wildlife, ...
  • Dave, Thank you! Is it still usable as a gimbal head when mounted upside down?
  • Looking for a small and lightweight ballhead to use with Sony A7R2 (my largest lens is 70-200 f/4) and Panasonic GX8 (my largest lens is Leica 100-400mm). I would like to have ability to set the ...
  • I use M4/3 (Olympus E-M10 and Panasonic GX8) with 12-35 f2.8, 35-100 f2.8, and Leica 100-400 , and also Sony A7R2 with a set of lightweight primes. These are two very different systems, made for ...
  • Replied in Sirui T-025X
    1.5 lb with the head: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1244072-REG/sirui_sut025x_t_025x_carbon_fiber_tripod.html
  • Great image quality, thank for the photos!
    But what is going on in Tokyo - why so many people wearing medical masks? Do they have an epidemic, or is it a smog problem?

  • Created discussion thread Do OEMs read these forums?
    Do engineers and market researchers from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Pentax, Panasonic, Fujifilm, etc. read this and similar websites? If you are an employee of one of the large OEMs, are you even ...
  • For landscapes, you will need to close the lens to f/8 - f/16 so I would get the 70-200 f/4 or the 70-300 for that. The 70-200 f/2.8 is for indoor sports, events, portraits, etc., where the bright ...
  • That "may" happen if ILC technology would stand still frozen where it is now. I hope that camera manufacturers will listen to the market and adapt better user interfaces, connectivity, apps, etc. ...
  • Replied in Acratech?
    Acratech makes excellent ballheads that use no lubrication, and the ball is open, so it is easy to clean or wipe dry: http://www.acratech.net/categories/ballheads.html I am looking at buying GPSS ...
  • Replied in Rubber hood
    You can’t be always at right angle to the glass, because your subject could be to the side somewhere. Get a flexible screw-on rubber hood for your lens(es), and make sure that the front ring is ...
  • All the "characters" moved to the Off-Topic forum ;) But seriously, I don't see the problem you described on my computer (Firefox).
