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.)

Matsu: Certainly the trend is towards making lenses much larger in order to have sharper coverage wide open over the entire image circle. The high end primes are all adopting this trend, examples include Nikon's 105E, the Zeiss Otii, or all the Sigma Art lenses which perhaps kicked off the aiptics size race.

They must figure that primes are now specialist instruments and anyone buying them is going to put up with the size and weight for whatever they're doing.

Most people are going to be better off with the best quality 70-200 f/2.8 they can afford, which have versatility, robust build, stabilization, and lightening fast AF on their side.

That said, in the right conditions, you can get a special look from a fast prime that's a bit different from the pro zooms.

I'm all for the specialist, fast primes. I don't mind weight nor size if it get beautiful wide-open shots.

No mention if it's waterproof. But I do recall the other Thetas to have a tube for waterproofing, so I think you could use those, maybe.

Edit: I guess it'd be tough to waterproof the output ports. :)

:) Oh, yes. I like Steve McCurry. The benefit is that his images are also beautiful, and I like 'em. :D Haha.

huyzer: I love #1, 4, and 6.

I agree with you. That's why I really am not into HDR type photos. I like reality. :) But when it goes toward something like #1, where the purpose is "Special Effects" and obvious, I appreciate the skill and look to it. :)

I am definitely curious what #5 is about.

That is so interesting we picked out exact opposites as far as ones that stood out for us. I picked #1, 4, and 6 for the visuals. I guess my mind just tends towards the visuals; makes sense as I'm not much of a reader. :D haha.

huyzer: I would like to know if we can still use an external battery (with the new USB-C) to run long recordings.

I found out my Yi 4K doesn't allow input from a mic to overlay my voice over directly, like GoPoor's. Does the new Yi 4K+ allow that with the USB-C? I really hope so!!

I do like that 4K allow e-stabilization, albeit with crop and 30 fps.

Hear hear! No complaints here. :D Haha

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for the update! I didn't realize they had a page up with some of the info you mention; much appreciated!

The wireless mic for the 4K (non plus version) would be AWESOME! I hope it's not just a rumor.

I hope the price for the 4K+ is what the 4K was, keeping with the theme of cheaper, more-bang-for-the-buck mentality that got me to buy into the Yi brand.

Tried to click the "Buy Now" button on that website. Nothing happened. ;D hahaha

huyzer: This is why I think Sony should make the sensor of the next a7S III to be only 4K in size, making the pixels bigger. They already have the higher resolution sensor for the a7R's. Low light video footage is what I'm after.

@Matthew Saville
Oh, really?! Hmm. I didn't know that! :D That makes sense. Thank you very much. Now I feel satisfied. :D Hahaha. Thank you very much for setting me straight on that.

I agree, for your other points about the mid-range + absurdly high MP cameras. :)

huyzer: Heck... yaaaooouch!
I was quite interested in this... until I saw the price.... maaay still be interested... but man, that price. We'll see. But great to see this technology is moving to action cameras.

Hi LegacyGT,

Thank you for the update about the Yi 4K+. I have my eyes on that. But, that is very lame that a company would not use real footage, but use other gear to "demonstrate" its product.

I always thought the GoPro cams were way too expensive. That's why I like the Yi 4K's bang-for-the-buch aspect. I have one myself, and do like it. I have an a7S II, and wouldn't have minded night footage from the Yi 4K to be the same. xD Hahaha. Maybe in the semi-distant future.

I don't care about brand names. As long as it works, is reliable, and not prohibitively expensively, then I'm all for it.

Cheers!

In reply to:

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)...
