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: Thought experiment:
So, say you can use a lens (made for a curved sensor) on a flat sensor. What would you have image wise? Would the resulting image "vignette" in focus (gets more blurry towards the edge) and brightness (gets darker towards edge)? Would there be an elongation/stretching of the represented object?

Ah. Chromatic aberrations. I hadn't thought of that.

Talk about being long-winded and condescending in tone. Don't try to be too "Bright".

In reply to:

Entropy512: I've been on the fence regarding an external recorder for a while.

The original cost of the 4k units was not compelling compared to Atomos' slightly more expensive (but much more capable) units.

However, at $600 I'm seriously tempted.

Yeah. Definitely many things to consider as you stated. Good luck in your purchase, or not. :D

Make sure to read the reviews on Amazon. I was considering a 4K external recorder, too, and at this price, I was considering it seriously. But the reviews from other users regarding this is that 64GB seems to be the limit if you don't want dropped frames. And consider, also, that for 4K, that's only 8 minutes worth of footage (their statement). I think using an SSD would be what I want, even though Atomos is out of my price range for now. Saving up for a Sony a7S III when it comes. :D
