I wish it were Western Digital and Sandisk who teemed up with Lacie, not Seagate. I had 5 Seagate hard drives failed on me in the past three years. All of them were no more than 3 years old. One was in a Lacie Porsche Design drive and the rest were installed in a Drobo.

Irakly Shanidze: I wonder why they keep making it in a form factor that is not at all convenient for video. Being a direct competitor to BlackMagic Production 4K camera one would expect more video specific design.

Because cages made for square cameras protect better and more convenient to use.

Toni Salmonelli: "Additionally, the 3-axis gimbal is fully compatible with both in-camera and in-lens stabilization systems."

How exactly does that work? I'm very curious.

this is a statement that vividly reminds me something like "0 calories, 0 fat" on a can of club soda :)

Naturally, this strap will make anyone a better photographer :D

Autriche78: I've never understood location shoots for engagements or weddings, unless it's a place that's somehow meaningful to the couple, and I'd wager that the vast majority of location photo shoots don't fall into that category.

"Oh look honey, these are the wedding pictures when we were in a neighborhood that we couldn't afford to live in but that looks nice as a backdrop " said no bride ever.

lol, same with wedding Bentley rides.

This whole story sounds incredibly ludicrous... A cop shooting someone whom he knows in a chest and then goes not to say "sorry dude?" Life imitates art...

bluevellet: Anyone interested in a Hasselblad X1D ? Brand new. North American warranty. Still in its box. Slight damage on box because of glass fragments. Half price.

I can throw in the 30, 45 and 90mm lenses for the full suggested retail price of the camera body alone.

Or I can offer a brand new Leica Safari kit, at half price. Slight water damage on the box due to snow exposure.

can you offer both?

It should have been called Lendom.

How come Leica SL didn’t make it here?
The only camera that has Super35 4K and 10-bit 422 output at the same time cannot be ignored.

ErnstCanonLeica: I own the Summilux 75mm f/ 1,4 and I love it. Don't need shallower depht of field, and I certainly don't need a 1055 gram instead of a 560 gram lens. Who wants such a heavy Leica M lens??? The Sum 75 is a legend. This Noct 75mm can't beat Dr Mandlers favorite lens.

well, there is aways a budget option. mitakon 1.2/85 or something :)

lol no, it does not work that way :))) it is a half stop faster than 1.4. However, with the way M10 performs at ISO12500 this half stop does not matter too much.

Perhaps. All I know is that pretty much anything that takes 30 minutes of accomplishing in post takes 2-3 minutes tops before you press the button.
This may be a powerful teaching tool, but using it in a professional setting for production is questionable, as more often than not post is done by someone else. If you take a picture and someone else is tweaking the lighting, where is your creative input?

it is no more difficult than focusing 1/50 noctilux, as the focus throw is pretty long. What's important is not to hover back and forth. Alternatively, you can fine adjust focus by hovering.

This may be something to consider for SL owners with unlimited budget.
