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.)

matt_b: How stable do you think this thing can be? A heavier unit, or even carbon fiber, will damp vibrations better than an extremely light and stiff system.

Please edit your two comments for the misinformation. Thank you.

chriswilliams10: As I've stated before, why is Nikon wasting it's time and resources developing a camera like this? Spend the resources on your new mirrorless endeavors, in a market that people are truly interested in and excited about. 3 lbs. of camera that no one needs...

What are you talking about? When you state something as generalized as a "...camera no one needs...", your statement gets a rebuttal. Put something out, people respond. Or are you talking in the wind? I responded with response that, if you take as getting slammed, that's on you(r viewpoint). I show you a link that is as good as any wildlife or National Geographic show, and you state it's only for pervs. Something is wrong with you.

Thanks for the spelling correction (that's a lot to you? Haha!). But if that is all you got, you need to work on what's more important. And from the same principle you state, I will spend my time on more worthwhile people, not crap.

Did you even watch the video I linked? Or are you so close-minded to not see pass your own shortsightedness?

In reply to:

Lan: Great shots, and a great story too; excellent work Erez!

To my eyes there's a bit of a green tint to the gorillas though? I'm sure it's accurate to the scene (i.e. there was lots of greenery all around reflected on the subject), but I might be tempted to knock it back a bit anyway? Third shot in particular is a bit too green IMO.

We're back to the age old question; do we edit to reflect reality, or do we edit to what we perceive as "correct"? It's a matter of taste at the end of the day.

I agree. It's a question I come across while I edit, too, especially in terms of image brightness. Seems like a lot of people like the bright to over-bright images nowadays (and, to be fair, sometimes I do prefer some images like that). But I am constantly wanting to edit it to look like how it was when I was there. I don't know... Haha.

This one looks lightweight compared to the Ronin-S that I have. That things a beast, but can definitely carry more than this one. So there are trade-offs.

PLShutterbug: Ok, the first comment is an off-topic whine.

It’s “... it’s ...,” not “... it’s ...” Please carry the ball for correct spelling. You are titled as “editors,” after all.

I don't get it, PLShutterbug. Your "correction"(?) reads:

It’s “... it’s ...,” not “... it’s ...”
Did you mean:
It’s “... it’s ...,” not “... its ...”?
If so, this is quite ironic. :)
Also, I think you mean correct punctuation, not correct spelling.
Am I being pedantic, too?

Team Yeti: These "sharing" companies are laughing all the way to the bank.

Whether it's a spare camera, extra vehicle, etc. Too many horror stories. No thanks.

Sounds like it all worked out financially in the end for the author / photographer, but no doubt only after the negative publicity.

Exactly. Kitsplit wouldn't have compensated him at all without the publicity.

huyzer: Okay, Sony, take note (about the weather sealing). I'm not hatin', I'm a Sony user. :)

Sony has plastic covers on their action camera, the FDR-x3000. I love that thing. It has gaskits under the cover. They say it's splash-proof without the underwater housing, so they can do it. Granted, the covers are bigger than the port covers on the camera, so that might be the issue.

@Steve Sanacore
I thought you might have had a trick up your sleeve (the umbrella. Ha!) :)

@worldaccordingtojim
Yes, I saw an article about that (with pictures) saying how it went through that little flap they provide for the dummy battery wire to go through the battery door.

Stephen McDonald: Nowhere in its specifications or in its operator's manual, does Nikon reveal the bit-rate the P1000 uses for any of its video modes. A P1000 user has told me that the recorded files indicate a variable bit-rate of 80 Mbps for 4K at 30p. This is less than other consumer cameras use, which is typically 100 Mbps. The upcoming Canon SX70, uses 120 Mbps for 4K. Why are they withholding this important information? Why hasn't DPR sought it out and added it to this review?

Why is there no mention in this review of 4K photo mode or 4K frame-grabs?

@Stephen McDonald
Not a problem. If you have any other questions, just let me know.

Mr. Williams, please learn to see beyond your limited perspective and needs. There is an immense world out there for you to see, if only you could open your mind up:

I can confirm that 1080p @ 60 ranges around 38,000 - 42,000 kbps, or 4K @ 30 averages around 79,000 kbps. This, of course, changes according to subject matter, if there is a lot of clear sky versus a scene with lots of detail.

I decided to do a quick search on experiences with those who have had bad experiences, and my conclusion is to not use my a7S II when it's drizzling. :)

@Steve Sanacore Glad your experience was okay. Just saw on your website your Hilton Tampa video. Nicely done. I'm involved in real estate videography, too. Check out www.YouTube.com/SDLuxuryListings if you're curious.

@PHOTOJOE55 I'm extremely happy with the low-light capability of my a7S II. But it's nice not to have to worry and shoot carefree in the rain, which I'm not going to do with this camera. lol
