ArtistAndCamera: I would drop the insane video resolution (which I doubt my computers could hande anyway) for great weather sealing and a small internal fan.

If you integrated a duct through the battery compartment, a cooling manifold could be fitted into a special grip. If you want 8K, use of the grip is reccomended. Otherwise, a small door with a water repellent mesh could allow ventilation while maintaining weatherproofing.

I Shoot both, since why not? Film= great IQ and DR; Digital: great IQ and DR.

But my slide collection is all film! Taken by my great grandfather!
Hope my great-grandkids keep my hard drives! :)

I remember the first roll of film I developed. That was the most stressful 35min of my life! I was afraid to open the canister at the end, "what if It didn't work?" "Did I let the light leak?" "Was the changing bag totally light tight?" But everything was fine. Shooting on film is so much different than shooting digital, and it encourages creativity, at least for me.

The idea of cooling fans is not mine. RED cinema has been doing it for a while.

A small vent could be integrated somewhere. Instead of a fan, a natural convection system could be made to work.

Nikon: "Let's start re-selling our stock of AIS MF primes!"
Fujifilm: "Ok, let's make an 50mm f/1.0 !"

Is it just me, or are camera companies running out of good ideas and trying to increase revenue towards their ML brainchilds?

GSD_ZA: I can only assume those masks are for keeping photographer's saliva and snot off sensitive photographic equipment. There can be no other sensible explanation.

LOL!

Dazaau: There are a lot of jaded, sarcastic and heartless posters on here these days aren't there. Better off when the subject is just brand wars.

Brand wars are so fun and informative! But discussion of really good photography is even better, right?

Lees Channel: Auto Exposure!? Pfft! PENTAX K1000 all the way. It's got a light meter built in, what more do you need?

My dad knew and still knows nothing technical about photography, but while he was a Marine on tour in Australia he used a K1000 to take a lot of good, memorable pictures. It is definitely an easy camera!

ArtistAndCamera: I got a Pentax K1000 in perfect working order with a 50 f/2 and 70-200 f/4 for just $24 at an antique store. I've shot and developed several rolls of film with it already. Recently, I got a Pentax 135mm f2.8 for $10, including S&H.

For the ultimate in budget options, shoot B&W film and develop using the coffee and orange juice method!

Well, in Brasil, it would cost next-to-nothing, since they have such an abundance of fruit and coffee! Sadly, I do not live in Brasil. Good luck with your photography!

Eric Calabros: Anamorphic is overrated.
Change my mind.

It is for those people who can spend a ton of money for a subtle effect. But if they use the effect well it opens to door to really creative shooting!

Why not review some beanbags too?

In reply to:

Astro Landscapes: It's tragic that this didn't include the absolute BEST travel tripods around, the Slik Lite CF, and the Slik Pro CF 634. Legs under 2 lbs, yet still some of the tallest around, and stiffer than any of those cheap wobbly pieces of junk... Who is deciding which "travel" tripods to review?

It's a shame that knock-off brands like MeFoto are stealing airtime from a long-standing, high-quality brand like Slik. I've seen literally a dozen broken MeFotos in the last few years. It's like they're disposable. And they're wobbly as heck to begin with.

Folks, just buy a long-standing brand name. Everybody knows Manfrotto and Gitzo as the longest-standing names, but somehow people don't remember that Slik has been around forever too, and has one of the most extensive lineups of sub-3lb tripods.

If you want the strongest, most durable tripods under 3 lbs, try these:
Slik Lite CF series, Slik Pro CF 600-series, Slik VARI CF series, Feisol Tournament series, or the Manfrotto Befree Carbon Fiber.

Hmm.. I've been a 3 Legged Thing fan for a while now, but that dual camera plate sounds interesting... Can you post a link?

Give me a good Nikkor 55mm f2.8 macro over this!

Franky Lankie: It's hilarious how the amazing hardware specs have completely outpaced the "level of talent" of photographers/videographers...

We could have 36K video and 500 Megapixel sensors and people would still be debating about "upgrading" because they want a "better image" lol

I do get the original point: where are all the new Alfred Hitchcock's and Steven Spielbergs? All new films are just technical wonderpieces and not truly compelling stories. I am not trashing on technical excellence, its just that people are not taking full advantage of it!
