exkeks: I made this for 35mm film cannisters: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1550029
And IMHO, I think, it is way more practicable.

thanks for link, where did you get the foam insert from?

Eloise: I may be missing something ... but to me all these (so called) competitors to Lightroom are missing decent Digital Asset Management / Catalogue facilities? I know Macphun (I think) have said Luminar will get a DAM upgrade next year (2018) but what of the rest?

you aren't missing anything, all the alternative RAW editors have really bad cataloging system compared to Lightroom. Even luminar's DAM is lacking compared to LR though it is a good first step in right direction.

Now only if Sigma were to release this lens for Fuji or Canon mount.

The Squire: AWESOME except that Micro USB3 port! Probably the worst port ever created. Why no USB-C?

That omission is quite surprising.

stevenj2: Ok. Hobbyist here. What to do, buy LR now or forget it?? Why doesn't Adobe offer upgrades periodically for a price if you want it? No subscription and no cloud use!

Taking too many pics but I can manage my files in Windows..no problem for me to find any. In terrabytes of files.

I have never known or considered importing pics into the software. I have jpg + dng from my Pentax and GRii, and jpg and ARW from Sony a6000. Tiffs from in camera raw conversion in Pentax are 70mb. Raw files I keep stay as they are.

So I want to go further than i can with PaintShop Pro. I don't use a professional workflow but put in lots of time organizing my files and processing some of the photos.

even if adobe adds new camera/lens support to its lightroom 6 for a small fee(~5-10$), I wouldnt mind paying that for future compatibility but as things stand right now its impossible. Time for use to move on from Ransomware Adobe Lightroom CC.

mr.izo: wow. this is how it's done, no bs..

edit: didnt catch manual only, but still very nice.

I prefer TTL when working in field, manual flashes are too much of hassle and butterflies dont stay for more than 2-3 secs in one place. While shooting in more controlled environment with dead specimen manual flashes are the best bet.

Adobe has shown a middle finger to loyal LR users wanting a perpetual licence. Guess will move on to On1 or MacPhun when I upgrade my camera in few years time.

Atleast its weather sealed and has DPAF, now will wait for the heavy discounts to start as that price is just too stupid.

jyw5: This is a stupid idea. Could have had all the settings of the 'film' down to a single dial or switch. What happens when you lose or drop your 'film'??

I understand the traditional feel that the camera replicates, but if you want a real film camera, but one on ebay. otherwise, use one of many amazing p/s cameras available for the same price...without the hassle of carrying a digifilm...especially in this day and age where you already have a keyring full of keys, an oversized cellphone, a giant wallet full of credit cards.

Weird. kickstarter really sucks...

They have already reached approx 50% of their goal. That is a sad state of photo industry today.

tabloid: I will be glad when all external (and internal) mechanical hard drives are no longer, and change over to SSD.
Been done in the camera industry (like the new SanDiscs's). Should be able to buy a 8TB SSD drive for a few hundred/dollars by now. A SSD is far less complicated to make than a mechanical drive. If they (SanDisc) can do a micro card for cameras, then the sky should be the limit with external SSD drives.

Most industrial and automotive applications were already using flash storage for a long time now. Hard Drives(microdrives) have been out of use since flash capacities crossed 16GB/card.

Chaitanya S: seriously WTH over the lowepro news, considering lowepro has really good range of bags and seeing what Manfrotto did with Kata range of bags not a good sign.

I didnt know Miggo was started by team from Kata. I was tempted to get their stormproof bags but they aren't easily available in india.

fireplace33: The previous gen 7 is not completely compatible with windows 7 !
The IT department in the company whete I work forbids the gen 7chip until windows 10 can be used. But that is delayed because of security and spyware type issues with win 10 :-(
So is this new gen 8 chip completly compatible with win 7 ?

Same as before, Win7 support is iffy.

Best part of this lens is atleast it can accept lens collars unlike Sigma which even though not as heavy as Nikon/Canon offerings is still marginal in terms of easy use on tripod/monopods.

Meh, Fuji should have released that 120mm Macro that was shown off before it would have been more attractive choice than this 80mm macro lens.

Seems like US is worse to live than some Mid-east countries.

Chaitanya S: Photographer was putting a lot of trust in those animals. Hyenas have very strong jaws and they can easily break the camera out of curiosity.

@Saurat: I never mentioned hyenas attacking(viciously), what I talked about was curiosity of hyenas. In general Hyenas are very curious animals and they will check out anything new in their territory. One of the ways of checking out new things for them is biting and even with casual bite these animals can easily break a camera.

onemoreguy: I wonder why no 4k. Don't all Sony 1 inch cameras now include 4k?

It indeed does 1080p internally and 4k available via external recorder.
