  • After praising the good service I've received from Henry's over the years, I have to return a defective item. They don't have return instructions on their website; you are supposed to contact ...
  • I checked on my Z6. I have the latest firmware (3.40). At first, it didn't flash at all. Once I turned on "image review" in the playback menu, it would either show the entire picture (for longer ...
  • I live in a remote part of Canada, so virtually everything I get is by mail order. I've had excellent service from Henry's over many years. I've asked questions, pointed out errors in their ...
  • That would be my main reason to get it. The original FTZ interferes with some tripod plates. It also makes it hard to turn the clamp knob on my geared tripod head.

  • Sunset on the shortest day of the year. It was -18°C and windy, but my Z6 held up just fine. Sioux Lookout, Canada
  • This wrong information is showing up in so many places that I wonder if it was initially sent out by Nikon. Here is a portion of the FTZ II specifications from Henry's Canada: Here is the ...
  • Replied in Not available
    The Kipon store on Amazon.com has many other permutations of adapters for Nikon Z mount, but the NIK-F/Z is listed as "not available". Perhaps they can still be found on eBay or in smaller camera ...
  • I have one of these - "Kipon NIK F-Z" - and I am very happy with it. I got mine last year from Amazon USA. It is purely mechanical, so the attached lens must have an aperture ring. It works great ...
  • It looks like they were very serous about waterproofing and ruggedizing the camera unit. It seems there isn't even an SD card door. There are times when all I want is a tiny, rugged camera that I ...
  • The plastic cage is very light, about the same weight as a spare battery. The metal (aluminum) cage is three times heavier. It is one of those things where if you need it, the extra weight will be ...
  • I have the plastic PGYTech cage for Osmo Action and I am happy with it. It has two built-in cold shoes and comes with some useful adapters for them. The PGYTech cage has an opening on the side to ...
  • I got the Kipon NIK-F/Z Adapter. It is purely mechanical, but it seems well built and I'm very happy with it.
  • Replied in Video
    They might tease a small bit of information about the video capabilities. No details, just features that will make the Z9 stand out.
  • Who is the target market for this telescope camera? I can't help thinking that people who are interested in astronomy and photography would find it more versatile to own a separate camera and...

  • Thanks for the heads up on the preorder. Canadian price is $379.99 plus $0.50 for some environmental fee. Free shipping though. No word on availability date. The Z6 + 40 mm will make a compact day ...
  • You can test it, but the 60 fps will produce larger files. Otherwise, for moving objects, 24 fps produces a little motion blur that some people consider more realistic. The 60 fps will show motion ...
  • If you are willing to go manual focus (the Z cameras have great manual focus support), I am very happy with the Kipon NIK-N/Z. It gave new life to my third-party manual-focus lenses. I even had ...
  • The Z6 and Z7 models are in Nikon's prosumer range. They can still be used for professional purposes, but they don't have all the pro level extras. FWIW, I generally use an external video recorder ...
  • I think it is a "con" that FCP is Mac only. Some of us don't get to choose which devices our employers provide. If you have to work in a mixed Mac/PC environment, FCP is not a solution.

  • "Resource intensive, crashes frequently".
    You were using a beta version of the software. I use PP on a home-built AMD-based PC, with an NVidia GPU. It has never crashed. If PP crashed frequently, I...
