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.)

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.

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.

Thank you for this sample. Definitely what I want to see regarding the bokeh balls, and seeing if they are sliced off (the bottom ones, here).

Yes! Awesome. Thanks for sample tests like this. Exactly what I want to see regarding the background bokeh for the lights behind.

Seriously. I was thinking the same thing: "Stop copying, and start innovating."

I hope not. But I just bought a used Note 4 with a replaceable battery and microSD card. So I'll be set for a long time. :)

I'm looking to buy a Note 4 (then I found out about the Note 4 Edge). I prefer it to the 5 or 7 because I can replace the battery, and expandable with microSD.

Robdman Taylor: Too bad the 4K camera is so bad on the DJi Mavic Pro I really wanted to buy this one but DJI is aware of this and hopefully they can get a firmware update that will resolve this issue and Tech support told me that the Phantom 4 has a better and larger 4k camera so it can not be swapped out or interchanged between the two units.

Wow, this "Robdman Taylor" dude has one comment, registered 2 days after this article. Must be a shill from GoPro trying desperately to defend their product.
