Chaitanya S: Essentially a bad hybrid of Camranger and eyefi.

1DX Mk II doesnt come with wifi its $600 optional extra, so that camera can use it (via a SD to CF adaptor). also to a certain extent maybe users of 5d Mk III and 1Dx might have already settled for Camranger of Eye fi so those cameras are not worth investing resources in.

This adaptor only supports 7D mk 2 and 5D S/R. I never tried Eye-Fi but for transferring small sized jpegs for webupload it should be plenty fast. I never use wifi to transfer large files onto my cell phone at max 1920px is what I need for previews and webupload half of that are more than enough. Camranger sure is expensive but its more well rounded package and definitely well worth the price.

@Dr_Jon: Eye FI atleast has onboard storage to store photos and CamRanger is the wireless tethering tool(it still has some storage for taken photos). This Canon solution takes up a SD slot, doesnt have any memory to store photos, has limited compatibility and doesnt have support for focus stacking.

Thats an interesting way to use DPAF, and if it works it will be life saver for macro shooters like me who tend to misfocus or can save time taken for photos needed to create stack.

Chaitanya S: I hope tamron releases this lens for K-Mount. That system really needs some good macros right now.

try photographing small Bush frogs with those extending barrel lenses, also lighting is a pain in rear side with these older design macros. Af is a really useful for shooting butterflies who dont tend to sit for more than 4 secs in one place, another use of AF for me with Macro lenses has been taking habitat shots of birds and carnivores. This is just one of the examples

@Favorable Exponynt: The old version you speak of is Non USD and non IF lens. Same problem as the D-FA 100, it extendes as it focuses to close up distance and has noisy AF.

yeah, K systems needs few modern macros. D-FA 100 with its extending barrel is not useful at 1x distance. also that system lacks 180/200mm macro option.

virtualreality: Any macro-photographer should upgrade to mirrorless. Lots of benefits over DSLR. Easier to use, better focus, no mirror shake. Also you get access to the best (sony 90mm f/2.8) macro lens.

None of the mirrorless systems have a first party 5x Macro lens or have wide selection of Macros longer than 100mm or good choice of Macro lights or even radio controlled flash system.

I have been hearing a lot of complaints of Manfrotto products recently, if they are wasting money suing every other manufacturer I am sure that would take away resources from QC.

newnail: Nikon has too many levels in DX type camera, such as,3xxx, 5xxx,7xxx, plus D500. Low end it is lost to Sony A5xxx, and A6xxx. nikon lacks of features to compete with Sony.

and yet I see more entry level SLRs than mirrorless cameras at tourists spots. Only people I have seen using mirrorless are ones with large SLR kit and are carrying mirrorless as lighter travel option.

On article 6 tips for better wildflower photos (58 comments in total)

Perfect timing, anyone in Western ghats will be in for treat as the retreating monsoons lead to the remote mountain plateaus to be filled with wild flowers and orchids.

Already reputation of this company is bad amongst the community and now this wont go well with people who not only backed up the kickstarter but also potential buyers. I was planning to get their bag but after reading about bad experience of other photographers online I am willing to go back to Lowepro(even if it opens me up to robbery).

Floppy disk was media I hated the most back in the day. Notoriously unreliable but catch was the cheap prices of floppy disks.

I hope this doesnt turn out like the 58mm G lens, grossly overpriced. Else its good to see portrait shooters getting a fast lens they have been asking for.

(unknown member): Great! Looks like a good accessory for my D800.
The ability to alter shooting parameters is nice.

Currently, I am able to link my D5300 with my Samsung Tablets. Activate the shutter view files in the camera and selectively transfer files in the camera to Tablet. But that is all.
I'll have to learn more about this product.

There is a review of this unit on youtube already, it does look really useful accessory and quite cheap.

Youtube channel: Deepskyvideo has a comprehensive look at the telescopes run by ESO in Chile, if anyone is interested they should have a look at the videos to get a sense of equipment that is being used for taking photos like those.
