  • Replied in Ditto
    Trti-X was my favorite film too in my film shooting days. Despite seeing the world in color in the OVF, I would concentrate more /itb allowed me to concentrate more on the image, composition and ...

  • Replied in Incorrect
    While theoretically indeed  correct, I personally am not wiling to risk damaging the gears inside the MTZ by hanging a heavy body (like in my case eg a Z7II + MB NII) from it. Already saw some ...
  • Replied in Incorrect
    Not correct as far as 3rd party options is concerned (Nikon indeed does not have one). The Megada.p MTZ 11 does exactly that (have one for over 6 months now) . While originally made for using Leica ...
  • I bought my 1st Z6 in late Nov 2018 within weeks after it became available. Based on the lukewarm review's of the Z7's AF, which had been around for a bit longer, had very low expectations of the ...

  • To begin with, I would, considering the heavily back lit lighting conditions, never have opted to go for one of the fully automated (where the camera autonomously decides what to focus on) AF options.
  • I got a Megadep MTZ 11 adapter for using my AD F and fully manual pre Ai, Ai and Canon FL (!) lenses with ( somewhat limited) AF on my Z6 and Z7II. While my experiences with their customer surfaces ...
