wasTF: In Video mode, Nikon is much better, i heard

Yeah I don't get Tony's comments. It's been amazing, pretend your hands are a glide cam and you get AMAZING footage. It's useable in panning shots which is normally never possible on the IBIS on sensors. It's like he is using a Sony camera and thinking it's a Nikon LOL...!

Camera Conspiracies: Great for bodybuilder vloggers. Thing is too damn heavy to be used in daily life by mere mortals :)

Not really, if you're holding it closer to your body it's both less strain on your muscles and it's better more stable footage. I've used the Ronin-S while on a electric skateboard with a Mindshift 'everything and kitchen sink' pack with no issues. I am far from a Bodybuilder! LOL!

Not a mention of the back pedaling on the supported cameras months after shipping. A lot of people bought this because of the original compatibility list. Was promised fixes and that the cameras were still compatible.

Then they 180° and changed everything so only a few were compatible. Way past any return period.

Absolutely horrible experience and broken promises. Don't get me started on the accessories or the MCC cable debacles... Doesn't seem this was a researched article, just a quick isolated experience review :(

This gimbal isn't ready for prime time.

I know Apple's engineers have their hands on the Nikon Z's and yet we still don't have Z support on macOS or iOS.

Which kind of kills things as I'd love to use RAW Power on both!

One day, maybe...

Otherwise it looks like a solid update, I might get the Mac version depending how speedy it is for ingesting.

G Sciorio: Go Nikon! Happy to hear how well made the new Z is. Question to users - what do you like and what’s missing on the Z bodies?

Only thing I've missed so far that actually like a hindrance, backlight buttons. HOWEVER... I know where every button is by feel, they did a great job at the tactile nature of them so you can easily tell what is what.

Just in cold weather it'd be nicer if they were light.

On article Nikon Z7 added to studio comparison scene (291 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kaonashi: Sony A7R3 and Nikon Z7 look very similar in terms of sharpness. However, looking at the colours I prefer Sony for reds and Nikon for yellows. This is the only difference I can see here. It will be very interesting to compare real life results.

I explicitly saw RAW.

They also don't mention what setting they use for High ISO NR–it impacts raws...

On article Ricoh announces development of long-awaited GR III (699 comments in total)
In reply to:

Robert1975: Even at $800, the GR III will be far better choice than Fuji XF10. You get 24MP DNG RAW, full Lightroom compatibility (almost any version!), proper 35mm and 50mm DNG crops which is easy with 24MP sensor. I suppose the sensor will be excellent up to ISO 1600, and if IBIS provides only 2 stops, you basically get a 28mm f1.4 in terms of low light shutter speed which is pretty awesome for a 33mm wide camera body. Pretty awesome.

I'm looking forward to this product!

The current one is already great up to 1600..! Drops significantly past that however.

At the same time the noise/grain in the images is very film like and the shots at higher ISO's are still useable with work in post. Looks great to 6400 in B&W, like a fine Fuji film.

Wow, no 15" laptop on the 450 at least? That's a miss... That limits the audience, I don't know may pro's that'd be using a gripped body that uses a 13" laptop. Should at least fit a 15 MBP

**EDIT** Their press release says 15" on the 450, however their site does note–hmmmm? What is it?

On article Nikon teases mirrorless with video and microsite (1234 comments in total)
In reply to:

Checat: So... mount diameter is main selling point? :P

Yes it is actually.

They've patented f0.95 lenses already for an unknown mirrorless mount. A lot of this marketing campaign is going to focus on light–so expect Noct-Nikon lenses..!

This Z-Mount is larger than any other FF mirrorless mount so it's going to be able to support some serious optics that are just not possible on other systems.

Smart move by Nikon, can't wait to get it via NPS :D

This might be the perfect sidekick for a street photographer. SP1/2 bit on tiny size.

In reply to:

Alexsfo: AF in video is much more important than for stills. Unless you are doing some hollywood production, there is no reason not to have a reliable video AF in 2017. This Nikon model is basically useless for most non- and semi-pro applications outside of controlled studio environment. The quality of footage should always be secondary to AF performance.

I hate to disagree, but I use non-AF all the time, not just in a studio. It's dead simple. I don't think the target demographic is backyard dog/kid filming. Even then, it's easy.

Madness! I just got last month a Weapon 8K (Non VV)–I bet a Monstro non-VV is just around the corner :(

Grumble...

(I kid, the Weapon 8k Helium is insane, no-complaints)

BklynBill: Still using the Spyder 4 Elite, it still works great. Hopefully this new one can use USB 3.0 ports, mine needs 2.0 and that is a pain as my monitor ports are all 3.0 and the only 2.0 ports on the computer are on the back and one has to unplug the "Spyder" when they update- which is why I have yet to install the latest update for the Spyder 4 Elite. Other than that, it works fine.

Yeah that's going to be simple variance from device manufacturer to device manufacturer. Manufacturing tolerances are probably higher on say an Apple iMac than on a Dell/LG display.

Give it a shot, it'll be fine!

Hate to break it to everyone but you're talking digital signals here. No sense of "accuracy" gets involved. It'll work or it won't. The values it reads will read the same on both USB 2 or USB 3.

We aren't talking Analog signals–

I've used it on macs, PC's, USB 2, 3, USB C (Shocker!)...

It's fine, with spyder 3, 4, 5.

3 is backwards compatible to 2.0. Just plug it right into the monitor and it'll be just fine.

Yeah I've been debating the last couple days you've been able to pre-order but now with the price jack, NOPE. Went to order it too

In reply to:

sierranvin: Meaningless. Good luck seeing any of it "trickle-down" (does "trickle-down" sound familiar to anyone?) to their innovation-starved camera division. I feel empathy for skilled engineers in Canon's camera division, who would no doubt bring us so much more if "Big Corporation" strategic budgeting didn't so effectively eviscerate their ideas and competencies. Dodder along, Canon, as you lose customer after potential repeat camera customer. The camera division should be spun-off so as to be independent and allowed to take risks and RUN with their ideas and technology.

Easy, D500 & D5! They'll source out for some of the lower models to either Sony or Toshiba.

What people don't realize is they also customize a lot of their sensors, it's not 100% the off the shelf model of Sony sensors if you were to order from a component perspective.

Sony/Toshiba etc–they're all just fabricators. They offer technologies along with their fabrication, they also offer standard "spec" parts.

marshwader: Having felt somewhat abandoned after the earlier codec updates for the 4K assist this is great news and makes the 5" model even a lot more useable than before. Thanks BM!!! Great new tools for a great device, It would be fantastic if they could also address the screen colour adjustment as Duncan suggests below. The 5" is a fantastic tool to down convert 4K to really nice crisp FHD on the go.

I don't think so, nothing on their site suggests that the 5" now does 4K, even post update!
