  • My opinions: The ND filter is no-brainer. A filter basically lasts forever if taken care of. And you need it. Anyone who shoots video, from a beginner to a videographer shooting for Scorsese needs ...
  • I think if you want to learn photography, the answer to me is clear:  the LX100.  The ergonomic experience of turning dials and setting shutter, aperture, exposure compensation is far better than ...
  • I love the images, but want to point out that you could replicate similar images using a modern camera and post processing.  You can add grain, add vignetting, and everything else.  Arguably it ...
  • I have an LX100, and I love it. Most of my opinions have already been listed: Advantages:  beautiful manual control dials, nice size, superb video quality (although I'd advocate 4k is SOOO much ...
  • Yeah, all lenses miss focus on occasion.  I haven't noticed more misses with my Sigma than Canon lenses, again once you factor in wide aperture.  A f5.6, so much is in focus that the camera is ...
  • I don't think there is anything that can give you what you want: Your A7 with a fast lens will have better low light performance and a more narrow depth of field than any professional camcorder I ...
  • In my opinion, the lens is simply awesome.  I love mine and it is on my camera basically any time I'm indoors, and sometimes outdoors depending on the situation.  I was hesitant to spend so much ...
  • Replied in Agreed
    My contributions are below. I also love this lens, perfect companion for a crop camera. Her eye isn't in perfect focus, but I love the shot too much to care. Or maybe I wanted the flower in focus? ...
  • I record theater.  My output is the entire production.  I record audio from the theater's audio board onto a separate recorder, and then two separate cameras - a wide and narrow.  Currently I stop ...
  • Replied in Panasonic DFD
    It looks like the C100 has a max bit rate of 24 Mbps.  I recall from past reviews that the video quality is equivalent to my 70d, which I'd rate as crappy (at least as far as detail or ability to ...
  • It seems to me that only a few years ago, no camera with a narrow depth of field had good continuous autofocus for video. Even professional camcorders weren't good - they have small sensors and a ...
  • Replied in Canon 6d II
    I'm in the same boat.  I agree the 6d doesn't need the fps, viewfinder focus, dual card slots of the 5d Mark IV.  But video is another thing. I'd love for the 6d to have decent video so I can ...
  • Commented on article Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 Review

    Indeed - there are smaller and lighter options for micro 4/3 and other mirrorless. Personally, I haven't held a GH5, but a GH4 is just a tad small in my hands. The GH5 may hit the exact sweet...

  • Replied in Nice audio
    I didn't watch the entire thing, but the audio was pretty good.  How did you capture it?
  • " I think this might encourage potential owners to go more for the D500 than buy more of this model."

    That is exactly what Nikon would like most! To sell more of a higher priced camera.

    For...

  • I should have added:  you should consider how much you need autofocus of moving subjects.  And in particular if you need a narrow depth of field with autofocus of moving subjects. Note that ...
  • I think questions you should ask yourself are: Do you want the ability to change lenses? (Presumably mostly to get a narrow DOF look and better image quality in low light, but also if you want to ...
  • Agreed. I'm pretty sure that I'll be getting a Panasonic, or perhaps two, later this year for video. It is a shame, because I'd spend more to stick with Canon.  But the only way to equal a ...
  • Replied in Regular SSD
    They use regular 2.5" SSDs. You just need to put it into the caddy that is provided. (I think 2 are provided). According to B&H, you can use a regular 2.5" hard drive (instead of a SSD - solid ...
  • Clarification: Some Panasonic micro 4/3 cameras can't shoot unlimited, others can. The G7 can with a small hack (just google it). The GX85, G85, GH4 or GH5 all can. The LX100 I mentioned can't. ...
