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.)

This reminds me of a thread me and a online user (claypaws) did a number of years ago, but regarding setting the Jpeg save setting in Photoshop to level 12 vs. level 8. Guess which one came out with no deterioration?

TriezeA72: All of these photographs are very good, but 6 & 7 are in another league of their own, the way he uses and captures the natural light on his intended subjects in those two images is brilliant!
Excellent work, well done!

Yes. I actually slightly held back from mentioning #2. It was on the cusp of my preferences. :)

I agree with you. I also like #4

huyzer: Ah, crude. I thought "..the lenses cost $2500.." meant as a set of these 3. Then someone mentioned each. Well, nevermind then. haha! I thought for 3 that was out of my range. They're definitely out of my range now. Oye!

Ya. Just caught me by surprise when I realized it. :D haha

belle100: Judging from the price, they must all be much higher quality. However, I don't understand why it needs to be higher quality than their still counterparts. I mean the resolution of 4K is 4096x2160, which is much lower than those of still image (typical 24MP) required.

@William Koehler

Thank you! I'm new to video, and I had no idea about focus breathing. News to me! Now I'll keep an eye out for this in new purchases.

Somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but you get my point.

Sounds right to me.

I can't wait for the new a7S mark II version to come out! Expecting internal 4K, IBIS, and even better low light performance! Better battery life wouldn't hurt. :P

huyzer: If anyone that tracks Sony release dates, when do you think the a7S II version will come out, and what do you think the specs and pricing will be? :) I'm drooling over the high ISO performance of the a7S already (I wonder how this one will do). Since this has internal 4K, I believe the newer a7S will also. Fingers crossed, and IBIS too? Hmm!

:D Thanks for the thoughts. :) RAW would be awesome. I wouldn't mind one bit. White balancing that would be a dream, and oh-so-flexible.

I was curious, what did you retouch in the middle of the pole? It undulates/curves weirdly. Unless the pole isn't perfectly straight that is.

All of them are beautiful, but number 4 is especially so, for me. Looks like jewelry.

In reply to:

Dan Wagner: I think it's a pretty photo. What I find important is the photographer having a graduated nd and a .9 (3 stop) nd -- and imagining what the shot could look like if he used these, combined with a long exposure that took advantage of the location. So it's more than technical, but also applying experience. It's weird but the shot looks like a negative. Out of curiosity I opened the image in PhotoShop and inverted it -- nah -- then I tried converting it to black and white and played with the different filter choices and really liked the red and infrared filters -- looks really nice in black and white. Didn't save the result as it's not my photo -- just wanted to see what a black and white version would look like.

What would have been fun for the photographer is if he had a Fuji 690 wide film camera and shot some black and white 6x9 (120) -- that would result in a 200 mb plus 16 bit file and also provided an archive negative.

Ah.
Sorry, I didn't notice your reply till now. I don't log into DPreview that often.
But yeah, whatever "floats your boat". :)
