Robert Kempen: When watching the MotoGP this past weekend, I noticed how many pro sports photographers were using SLs on the grid before the start

This adapter will increase the number of fashion photographers no doubt

Leica's sales are soaring world wide - kudos for a fine camera with an ever increasing audience of pros and consumers

@Mais78: From what I saw during F1 event, the photographer was just using the SL to take photos during pre-race track side photos and in pit lane. During the race, qualifying and free practise it was the 1Dx Mk II and D5 that were in use with long tele lenses.
@Malabito: The photographer that I saw during F1 weekend was using Leica's 24-90mm lens. And it was used for trackside(pre race) and pit lane activity for which the contrast detect AF is fast enough to get job done. For the action shots it was D5/1Dx Mk II with long tele lenses which was seen in use.

privater: Just FYI: Sony's USB-C / USB-A hybrid flash disk is half the price on bhphoto

according to Adata's official PR the read speeds for UC350 is 100MBps while writes are 30MBps. It seems like Sony might be a safe bet at this point. I personally am not a big fan of the retracting design as overtime it tends to fail. Design of Kingston and Adata drives is much better as I dont have worry about cap either.

Did you check adata drive as well? Its wierd how manufacturers have jumped onto Usb 3.x bandwagon but they didnt upgrade the write speeds of their flash drives. Except for a few high end drives majority of these usb 3.x drives are barely faster at writing data than old(good) usb 2 drives. Read speeds are another story atleast those seem to be taking full benifit of extra bandwidth usb 3 offers.

BrickCurve: Remind me, whats the point of a night vision camera again?

while in the field Night vision is extremely useful at spotting animals and people from a distance. maybe even when its foggy and dusty.

I saw a lot of pro photographers during F1 weekend using Leica Sl. Funnily other than Nikon, Canon and Leica I didnt see any other system camera being used on side of track.

@Impulses: Kingston has a Tiny(C/A USB) type pen drive similar in size to old Duo. Check their website. Also Adata has few C/A USB pen drives that are similar in size.

Chaitanya S: Another Beta product from Nikon, shame on them for releasing such half baked products to market. A friend of mine has been facing the memory issue since he bought the camera and now he switched to sandisk/samsung cards due to headache he had with Lexar cards.

@Richard: those exact lexar 1000x cards are working perfectly in my 70D and friends D7200 and D810. Also look how mamy issues have plagued Nikons recent releases from camera to lenses. Oil leaks from shutter mechanism starting from D7000(on my flickr page you will find photo shot from D7000 that have oil spots on them due to shutter leaking oil onto sensor) all the way upto D600, 200-500 recalls, etc....

Chaitanya S: Looks interesting, price combined with LED lights + GPS will make it a useful tool for field work. I just hope it doesnt have that crappy fisheye lens found on most action cameras.

Thanks for the info, I am interested in this camera as it has gps+rugged+thermometer and I can use to take document shots of the amphibians and reptiles in field. Which means I dont have to carry around standalone gps with me in addition to action camera.

Looks awkward to use with that long tubular design. Not a good design choice it seems.

i use to rent orignal 600ex regularly, it was a good flash but too expensive for me. I am hoping this one will be available for rent soon.

interesting addition of led flash onto to short macro lens. it will certainly help with with reducing lens shading due to short focal length

A very clean layout compared to Fuji but too many screws compared to few other cameras that were torn down before.

Grossly overpriced for holster cases when Clik Elite and Lowepro offer similar cases for third of that price.

Dieuwer: I don't understand why anyone would pay $1000- $1500 for one of these camera's. Especially the Sony RX10 III is over the top ($1500).
For that amount of money, you might as well buy a nice Tamron all-in-one lens and a APS-C body.

I would say those video features of Rx10 series are worth the asking price. else for just stills use, yeah Rx10 series is overpriced.

Luckily the sensor is small enough that it wont cause those ribbon cables to melt after overheating.
