  • Well, this certainly wouldn't have made you feel better: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60006122 https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60006116 :-) Preparation is absolutely essential and I ...
  • 100% correct though. Sun and moon are in the skies almost every day, yet so many people only think about photographing them once in 100 years. There's a lot of value in learning about these things ...
  • Well, I'll be interested to see the results...
  • Yes, really. But, perhaps it would be better to follow the money, as a smart person might. Clearly the money is in the sale of glasses and filters. Which mostly come from China. China. So, hey, go ...
  • You figure wrong. Completely wrong. (1) The sensor is exposed the whole time you are pointing and focusing on the sun, not just during the exposure.
  • Replied in Date?
    Yes, but the real test is to remove the battery completely for a day or two. It doesn't seem likely but worth eliminating that as a cause. Very common failure with the E-PM1
  • Because in normal times, people don't use long lenses, focused specifically on the sun, and for longer periods of time. Most people might take sunset photos, but the energy involved is a lot less ...
  • The cameras you've mentioned are all designed for a specific purpose, as so-called action cams. This imples a wide field of view, which has a number of advantages: (1) Everything in shot
  • Replied in G7, Gx8 or GH4
    TBH, upgrading to either of those is so incremental, it is a waste of time and effort. I have a G7 and even the GH5 isn't compelling at this stage. I'm just a hobbyist, though - I guess a pro would ...
  • You're seeing wrong. Look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TO_yZDxryQ While an extreme example, it does illustrate the risks - there's a lot of difference between shooting the sun low in ...
  • Replied in Date?
    This isn't the GH5 or any comparable camera, but it is possible the supercapacitor may be similar (though higher voltage), but this video shows the kind of thing that MAY be the problem. There's ...
  • I do. The money I save on the camera is going to a 3-axis gimbal. That's an upgrade that will work with future action cams and phones. Should be fun.
  • Replied in Date?
    Does your camera lose the date fairly quickly if you take the battery out? Failure of the backup capacitor has caused background battery discharge for me with several cameras, the most recent one ...
  • While what you say is likely correct, I don't care - I own a Git2 and was specifically asking about the G3, not the Yi 4K+ or the Hero 6 Purple or the GH5 or whatever. I don't need, or want to pay ...
  • Good idea to practice; this is exactly why you need (and I was saying) to have everything sorted months before the event. No second chances, no re-dos.
  • AFAIK the current situation is that 10 bit h.264 files are supported by Resolve Studio, and the status for Resolve isn't clear, but seems to not support them. This is unfortunate as the assumption ...
  • Thought the first was a Starbucks. :-)
  • OK, that's probably not a burned out AF motor; it is more likely the ribbon cable inside the lens failing (relatively common). I think there have been reports of the 100-300 having a mechanical ...
  • Replied in Please not PS
    Agree. But please not PS. I've been having to use RAW for a project (normally, I just shoot JPG), and all of the RAW editors I used had shortcomings. SilkyPix is IME, totally unusable. How on earth ...
  • Where did you get that - AFAIK nobody has these in stock yet? Also, what is your opinion cf to the Git2? Is there any substantial difference or just features (like the dual cameras, GPS module, ...
