A photographic version (less expensive) with an EQ wedge could be very interesting for astrophotograghy

Name That Camera: According to Tony Northrup and Ken Wheeler, Nikon was going broke.....

Ken wheeler still talks about photography ? I thought he only talks about pseudo-science and conspiracy theories...

I have a 7760 with 64GB of ram, an I9 11th gen and a 3080 16GB... It's an insane machine... very powerful... impossible to complain.
The power of a high end desktop pc in a laptop.
The new one looks even better...

I love my surface pro 6, it still performs like a champ, so I don't need to upgrade, but, I recommend to everybody to try a surface pro...

good specs, very good screen, and a true windows pc all in one...

CanonKen: If it only sells for $150k, it just shows how dumb and crazy the Leica market is. This lens is about as awesome and amazing as you can get for camera gear. NASA, Stanley Kubrick, 10 copies (not of a limited color of brown, actually 10 copies).

The comment from CanonKen says that if this lens sells for "only" 150k then this would prove that the leica market is overpriced. since this lens is rarer than the leica products (and has a history), it should sell for more.

I've bought the anamorphic lens on amazon (40€ used), the lens in itself is well made, but it's not easy to have it perpendicular on the phone (I use a galaxy S20 FE).
It's clearly a toy, and it's fun to use, so for 40€, I think it's great...

On article Opinion: Do we really need all those buttons and dials? (885 comments in total)

Smartphones are great to point and shoot, but when you want to use their "pro" modes, they're painful to use...
Advanced cameras like DSLR or Mirrorless ILC need those buttons to facilitate access to these advanced features...
You can't have it all. You don't want a formula 1 car to do offroad in the desert, and you don't want a 4x4 to do track days...

I often use vintage lenses, when I do astrophotography, with a nikkor 300mm f/4.5 ed if from the late seventies.
I also use (for general purpose), the nikon 50mm f1.8 E "pancake" from the early eighties, and this one is always on my dslr, unless I really need autofocus

So, sony releases a powerful new mirrorless... but its screen is poor... it's unfortunate, if only there was a smartphone with a very good screen and capable to accept the hdmi out of this powerful A1...

wait, what ? sony has announced in the same time this smartphone ?

well done sony, well done... for creating a problem and providing a 2500$ solution...

:D

13g vs 30g for a regular tripod plate...

My formula one car needed this kind of plate... :D

ninjaneko: interesting product...

is there a timelapse mode (with the use of the gimbal to introduce movement) ? and a manual mode for photography ? and if yes to these two questions, can we combine them ?

Thanks a lot !
2 secs, a timelapse by night seems possible !

ninjaneko: I'm sorry, I don't understand why the article says this "It should be noted that Canon did not design either the EOS R5 or R6 to be professional video tools, nor does it primarily market them as such. " and this other article ( https://www.dpreview.com/news/4816421953/canon-releases-eos-r5-with-45mp-sensor-8k-video-capture-and-next-gen-dual-pixel-af ) says : "The EOS R5 is a camera designed for professional applications featuring a new 45-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and uncropped 8K video recording up to 29.97 fps."

I can't say if the camera is "poor engineered" or not, it seems to me that it breaks boundaries... 8K in a so small body, with a full frame sensor, is pretty unbelievable. My comment only goes for the "non professional use", which is false considering the PR document.
I wish I could have this camera (even if it's over the top for an amateur like me), I don't do video, only photography and the R5 looks like a photographer's dream...
Also I wonder how it performs for astrophotography, does it overheat too when you shoot multiple 1 minute (and longer) frames ?

ninjaneko: Rho Ophiuchi, this will be my next target when I'll do astrophotography again...

I've tried it one time two years ago, it was a disaster, there was too much light pollution, and it was in august so it was very low in the sky...

next time, I'll do better...

On article Stellina: imaging the sky with a smart telescope (233 comments in total)

While the idea of a full automatized and portable telescope is great, the results are, at best, poor...

https://flic.kr/p/WJeB9R
this is what I've managed to obtain for the pleiades with an equipment far less expensive... (a skywatcher star adventurer (350€ new), a nikon D7000 (bought used for 300€), a very old nikkor 300mm AI ED IF F4.5 (bought used for 90€) and an intervallometer (15€ on amazon)).
of course, the time I've put into this picture is way longer than the example in the review, but, astrophotography takes time.

I have no doubt that future versions of this kind of telescope will be better, and maybe could replace astrophotography typical equipment, but not now...

This article teaches us how the road to perfection is tough but with some tears you can achieve it.

Great stuff ! :D
