      Amen to this! On a side-note, rail mounting allows the option of extra light to be bounced around by rear-mounting UV filters that intensifies streak flare and overall internal flare wonder. (as well as allow rear mounted VND with rubber lens hood 'donut' if out in bright daylight). There is no apparent light transmission loss, extra vignette or distortion by properly positioning scope rear to taking front. Since the setup is properly aligned on rails, the non-mechanical coupling can be positioned just as close as any conventional clamp setup....and without the fear of having to trust a crappy cheap step ring or old taking lens thread to hold the weight of your beloved scope lens.
    • An adventure into the Panasonic GX85/80 begins - and a look at the Leica Nocticron for Micro Four Thirds
      I will say Panasonic does do some magic here. I've had cameras that produce a very digital line around anything blown out. Panasonic seems to render with a little more gradient (and grace) so that it's not as noticeable. The goal was to do "run & gun," not think too much about the shot. To bring her face out more, I would have installed a reflector had I thought a little more. But even then, it's all a matter of preference I think. Some people really like a darker image than others.
    • 5 reasons why I will be getting a Panasonic GH5
      I have shot live stuff with the pocket & this type of bashing is absolute Bullshit. The screen isn't that bad & you switch out the battery when you change the SD card - how fucking difficult is that! These are all minor things, especially when you consider the image from the pocket shits all over most other cameras in its price range. I really wish people would stop spreading this kind of stuff - the Pocket isn't a PINA to use, it's an absolute joy. I point, I shoot & I get the shot - hardly any post needed, because the image captured is exactly what I want.
    • 1080 vs. 4K: What is REALLY necessary?
      I've shot quite a few live music events & I always get my shots - never even thought about reframing, not once. In fact, most of the time i'm able to sync stuff from one song to make it look like it belongs to another - perhaps I'm just used to knowing what will work & what won't. And yes the Pocket's DR in ProRes (RAW's a luxury one can't afford when filming live stuff) is exactly what makes my task that much easier when editing it all up. That's the other thing as well, if you film but don't edit, you tend to be out of the creative loop - I'm always thinking about the edit when I film stuff, it would be stupid not to.
