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.)

The fake bokeh is cringe-worthy (other than for postage stamp images :) ) from all manufacturers' attempts.

Peiasdf: I always ship through eBay via PayPal so if they haven't really paid, it would show as unpaid in eBay. That said, I once had to chase down a high end Dell mobile workstation I sold to a Vietnamese scammer in Germany. Called and complained to USPS as they gave me incorrect tracking status. Called JFK, US custom, HDL, German custom, Erfurt police and filed German police report. eBay Germany's community members helped me a lot with suggestion, translation and filing forms because they want to prevent scammers using Germany's status as trading nexus to scam foreigners.

The Vietnamese scammer ended up deciding not to pick up the package because German police was waiting for him and the package was opened for inspection before being returned to me after a month. German police sent me a letter but I cannot read German, I still don't know what it says.

Just a note about the obvious. Don't judge all Vietnamese by this one scammer.
<- Vietnamese, here. :) lol

Hi Franz Weber,

Actually, two instances, a second before, and a second after the "Made in USA".

Okay, that's pretty bad-ass. I'm not gonna lie (even if I think GoPros are overpriced).

Pretty cool. Thought it was a contact print/filmstrips for a second.

Vegetable Police: The Yi 4k looks terrible though. Horrible compression artifacts. Same with the Sony x3000 4k, I find the 1080p looks much better, especially when walking through the forest with all the foliage. The 4k footage looks like gameboy footage at times.

If they added optical stabilization I would consider switching, since the mic jack on the Sony x3000 is terrible. Every mic is way too loud, and there is no way to change the volume control.

Personally, I love my Sony FDR-x3000. So much so that I have two. :)
I just discovered a NEAT feature. GPS maps overlay! I'm going to have to experiment with this!

Sony has been around. I think they know a thing or two about electronic tech, while the others are trying to catch up. I think I'll stick with the big dog.

@Vegetable Police
In response to "Horrible compression artifacts." I look at my 4K footage, and it's sharpness galore without ugly compression artifacts. There are two bitrate settings (per framerate 24p & 30p) for 4K: 100M and 60M.

PhotoKhan: After clicking on the link to the site of this software, Aurora, I ended up wondering why would anyone want a program that defaces photographs like the scroll-over samples in the homepage for no perceivable creative purpose?

Yes, opinions are like noses; everyone has one. ;D <--- except this emoticon. ;P
@LenBeginner True, DR can be a bear. I guess if it has a function where you can adjust the percentage to suit a person's taste, that would work for me. Good question directed toward Alina.

Yeah. That's why I never liked HDR. It looks too unnatural too me. I guess I could blend the HDR result with the original and see how that looks.

Petr Klapper: Seems a bit like re-inventing mouse-wheel? Anyway, would be much better with at least 5 customizable smaller wheels on the keyboard to skip the need for midi-controllers for LR for example.

Thank you, Dougbm_2, for the additional tips!

@Joe Federer
Sure. I'll try. If you select the pin slider, you still have to keep your cursor on that slider. Otherwise, if you move your cursor over the picture, and then adjust with your mouse-wheel, it'll just change the size of the adjustment brush. Hope that makes sense.

Oh my gosh! Thank you! Idiot me, I did not know about the mouse-wheel adjustment! What?! :D
For anyone wanting to, just click on the adjustment pin, and scroll away. :)
You can change the size of the brushes, too. Though, I did know this one. :D

Holger Drallmeyer: I know it's a budget lens and it's not bad at all but these sample pictures want me puke. Couldn't someone shoot something a bit more inspiring and motivating?

I know it's one comment in 7.5 billion people, and it's not good at all. But this comment above makes me want to puke. Could someone say something a bit more inspiring and motivating?

Of the four pictures of her, I like this the best, as it's more candid.
