Yannis1976: I don't have anything against the equipment the user used, but judging from the photos posted here (which are all good and nice), I think even the small and light 1" cameras (Canon/Sony/Panasonic) would produce similar results...

i think you need to learn how to read a histogram, because none of them are clipped.

Donald B: its 2017 what happend to 5 axis ?

thats what i mean, why doesnt the camera pan up and down and swivel too pretty straightforward ? the way the bracket is designed it could move up and down as well :-)

FafBill: Years ago there was a popular video commercial. I am a bit foggy on this. A young girl had a butterfly on her nose for several seconds. Then it flew away. Days later, I learned the trick to force a butterfly to remain stationary (on a human nose!!!) for a few seconds.
The photographer had a collection of butterflies. Each rested in it own compartment stored for a brief period in a refrigerator. There is a limit on how long a bug can survive in a cold fridge. There is also a limit on how long the bug or butterfly will remain stationary after being exposed to warm air.

great shots

phatonycmu: Haha - great shot. Out of curiosity how did you get the focus? I'm assuming it wasn't AF-C?

use silent shutter ,I get better results and stop down to f8. I use 4 frames per sec .

when I revisit my images taken with the k7 Samsung sensor, it still produced the best skin tones of any camera ive seen to date.

It was afc worked a treat , it might also have been in tracking mode as well , I used silent shutter so no shutter lag at all , I don't see what people complain about, it kept focus easily with my dog running straight towards me.

Bombastic: Amazing camera indeed. Then again, my xt20 beats it in sheer detail (at the expense of higher noise).

watch this :-)
