  • I think they should make the R3 a high-megapixel version of the R1. If both R1 and R3 are in that 20-30 medium-megapixel range, they'd be a bit redundant. Let the R3 be 45 megapixels or so, faster ...
  • I agree with this. I shoot bursts with strobes, and so the ability to fine to max frame rate would help so I don't push the flashes too fast (or slow) and get consistent flash exposure at a given ...
  • The R1 rumor was for a 1/1250th sync speed. I'd get an R1 or an R5II just for that feature alone. And if a flash sync significantly faster than 1/250th isn't included, I'd be inclined to hold out. ...
  • Although it would be interesting if my camera suddenly became sentient and said, "sorry, I can't shoot that, Dave!" and used the IS motors to overpower me and swing another direction to take ...
  • In devices like a camera, or a toothbrush, I assume the AI is, at most, algorithms developed using AI - but it's probably baked in, and won't learn as it goes (except via firmware updates). It ...
  • Replied in Flash Sync
    This 100% speculation, of course - speculation (and hope) that the 1/1250th rumor is true in the first place. But if they get that "shutter" speed, it will probably be with an electronic shutter ...
  • Replied in Flash Sync
    Yeah, this last weekend I was indoors (equine sports), but with huge opaque windows, and to keep them from getting nastily overexposed, I had to use ND during peak sunlight, which has an impact on ...
  • Replied in Flash Sync
    If they stick with 45 megapixels, but have that 1/1000th sync speed rumored for the R1, I'll snap up the R5II. If the R5II goes up to 60 megapixels, but the R1 is raised to 40-45, and has that sync ...
  • Replied in Fidget Spinner
    I got the Canon one. 3rd Party is probably fine, if it's a good quality filter - maybe difference in build-quality and stability, if it's cheaper.
  • Replied in Fidget Spinner
    I find it too easy to spin by accident, so I've got it disabled, and occasionally spin it for some clicky absent-minded fun. I'm almost done migrating to RF lenses, but I chose the filter-adapter ...
  • There are triggers that do this. I have a FusionTLC Raven which allows you to fine-tune the flash triggering for hypersync purposes, and it might be useful for this rumored R1... it'll basically ...
  • A lot of the older studio strobes had a longer "tail," and before HSS studio strobes became a thing, "hypersync" was a feature, where the sync was delayed, missing the peak, but taking advantage ...
  • I hope that 1/1250 sync speed is true, and not a typo for 1/250th! I shoot equine sports, and 1/1250th (daylight equivelent) is my minimum desired shutter speed. I can live with 1/1000, but ...
  • Replied in Nope
    I only do a couple of weddings a year, but for that, and for portrait shoots, events, etc., the 28-70 gives such a great balance between versatility and art. A 24-70 f/2.8 would balance more ...
  • Replied in 3d renderings
    I think you're talking about taking 3D renderings, and just splicing it in? Simple video-editing? Just get the architecture firm to provide you with the renderings, have them render video ...
  • I've used BTT since I switched to Mac years ago. It's also great for touchpad gestures (it's original core function). You can also use Automator scripts (or the newer version of Automator, forget ...
  • People have different physical abilities, so I won't question you too much, but for most of us, it's a little scary the first few times, but if you've got reasonable grip strength (maybe practice ...
  • Yes, the new RF 1.2 lenses are fantastically sharp. The older ones had CA, and were softer. The eye-detection of the mirrorless bodies should help get the most out of these lenses, but even when ...
  • I leave mine plugged in all the time. When I go to events, I usually run off the battery for a while to let it do some work before plugging it in. No problems with my M1 and M1 Max's. Before ...
  • I use Clear or UV filters on most of my lenses. I shoot equine sports, so often have dirt being splashed directly into my lens hood. So my 100-300mm definitely gets a hood. I think the primary ...
