Artak Hambarian: Guys, does anyone know of any video editor capable of white balance management, that is also not expensive or free?
BTW my most used editor for stills is the ACDSee Ultimate, and I use PS CS6 for pano stitching.

Thank you Pgb!

High popularity of this device or its modification is inevitable. Unlike Google glasses.

Artak Hambarian: Current VR combining two challanges:
1. 3D, which faces non existance of good high res viewers, and I, as a photographer, care about this the most - I have been in stereophotography more than 30 years. I have done really stunning (for at least me and my friends and family) 3d macro and architectural shots that one can view over and over...
2. Interractive immersion via turning your head or by directing your sight. This is an entirely different beast, that in my opinion has some specific applications. I can see guided movies here.
I think these tasks should target different markets and shall be solved separately. E.g. the first task is relatively easy to solve by creating a 3d (stereo) digital viewer with really high resolution, e.g. 4-8 mp for each eye.
Later the audio related issues should be solved. BTW, its hard to see how could binocular effect be seemless when turning one's head.
I am waiting for the good 3d stills viewer, and not so much for the "interactive" experience.

Thanks for the link! Few more years? Well they will pass quickly anyway.

Guys look at how good the new Novoflex tripod is with unique integrated leveling. This information to me is more important than the meaningless Leica talk. I need to investigate it!

All contemporary VR sets look miserable from photography point of view. Including those capable of using 2.7K smartphone screens, which is the current top resolution. They are like VGA displays when there is 4K. Interestingly, technology easily allows, and I will be an early bird if a stereo electronic viewfinder appears that has at least same resolution as the a6300 (for each eye).

Good that one more bag and tripod manufacturer makes this type of a bag. Except for smaller gear compartment compared to Lowepro Flipside 400 which I own, it has advantages. 1. removable gear compartment, 2. Laptop/tablet compartment, 3. Additional top compartment. However the molded plastic bottom, or some kind of water sealed bottom, that I have been waiting for, is not there.

Artak Hambarian: I want this camera, but with at least 42mp full frame sensor, easily am ready to sacrifice the frame rate.

Have been waiting just a few years... My D7000 is still good enough, to wait for really high megapixel version. After I shot with my friend' D810, I am full of patience for what I want. Although sooner is much better.

Well, that is why I will be waiting a camera with "this" screen, network connection ability, with "this" body, although Df body would have been even better, with "this" number of autofocus advancements. No, I would not like to sacrifice megapixels. And I need it ASAP.

Artak Hambarian: Lanparte is the currently existing solution. It provides 4x the en-el15 capacity.

In fact the full kit suggested by the Tether Tools is more than $200 with the strap.

No doubt the Case Relay has the advantage of being a power buffer. But case Relay costs $(99+29+40) ie the CR, the coupler and the battery bank = at least $168. If you already have the battery bank, still need to spend $128.

Miki Nemeth: I'd highly appreciate a similar firmware update for Nikon Df to work with Atomos Ninja2 via HDMI. The Df has brilliant lowlight sensor. Clean HDMI output recorded with an external recorder would be excellent.

If you are offering video option for Df I am also for it.

There are at least two different bags shown in the three pictures. Does the first one has any relation to drones? The link taking to the Manfrotto site shows only one bag with the drone capability.

Well its short without central column raised. If you are tall, you may regret. After all how useful is the center column?
