About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

PeterNMIF: Some mention of cost would be helpful. It would help me, and others I think too, determine how much time to spend reading the article. Perhaps I missed it as I have to admit that though I read the article I have not looked at the videos.

Dang it. I wouldn't have wasted my time reading this if I knew it was $1,000! Fool me once (DPreview)...

huyzer: This is beautiful.
I love analog photography, too, for exactly what he mentioned. I always likened getting the roll develop, and the prints back, as opening a gift. I remember thinking that the last image on the film roll (of 24 or 36) were a higher chance of being keepers. You (at least for me) took greater care and time with that last shot.

@CE3
Yes, I actually had thought of that, too. The thing now, if you truly want to limit it, is to get those old 64 megabyte cards, etc. :D hahaha And, yes, no chimping. ;)

@John Koch
I was mentioning my non-plus version, not the 60 fps version. Sorry if that bit was confusing. But to answer your question, "I don't know."

Agreed! I have the Yi 4K, and the footage is sharp! And you can't beat the bang-for-the-buck pricing. I hope they stay with that concept. :) haha.

And, wow! That drone's speed and flight time is ridiculous(ly good)!

Not a bad idea. I love shooting. I HATE editing!

huyzer: So which one is it? Their copy says:

- "Nine aperture blades ensure a pleasant, well-balanced bokeh."
and
- "Aperture Blades 15 with special anti reflex coating."

@WryCuda
Hahaha! You are so right. I didn't even think of that. :D My bad. Thank you. I guess I was too focused on the copy, and the ridiculous price, and that thwarted my thinking abilities a bit. ;D

@Androole
You might be right. I think the 15 blades might have been a disservice to the bokeh rendering; busy looking. But I have to test my own Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 to see how busy looking the bokeh, in the same scenario, is.

I was about to regret my recent, used lens purchase of the Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm/f 0.95, from eBay. Not so much, anymore. :D I got mine for $680. :D

Melchiorum: I have to charge/change batteries on my camera, my two flashes, my phone, my video light, my radio mic, my gimbal... Yeah, charging my freaking tripod too is just what I was missing!

@Melchiorum
I know you were joking.
But there are rechargeable AAA batteries, too. :) I use Eneloops. They're great.
I'm glad this tripod uses typical batteries, not non-replaceable rechargeables.

MikeFairbanks: This reminds me of when a tv sitcom has a couple characters visit an art exhibit. They're usually in the wrong room or the exhibit isn't even there...something like that.

Then they all get philosophical trying to explain how deep and moving it is (when there's just a bench and a plant in the corner). They go on and on with the metaphors of how our world is dying (only one plant), man is absent (caused his own extinction), and the bench represents how humanity was tired and gave up.

They go on and on until the janitor walks in, waters the plant, and says, "If you're looking for the new art exhibit, it's down the hall and to the left."

I think that's what we're looking at here.

@AshMills
It becomes a trap for the sucker buyer. A rich, sucker buyer. :) Send them my way, please.

I don't need words to explain a picture.
I want the image to tell the story.

@mujana
The ("thee", "th-ugh"), or A, I wasn't being that specific.
For me, it just has to be pretty. :) And not something anyone can do without much creative forethought. In this case, the image just looks like an ill timed school picture.
