    • 1.74x - A Crop Odyssey - Canon 5D Mark IV officially announced
      I just can`t believe this!!!!!, is this real? it is hard to believe that 5D IV had the same jello than A6300, really would like to see a second source test.
    • Is this bone chilling timelapse shot in space onboard ISS the best ever?
      Love the timelapse in the OP. It is on my bucket list to view and maybe film the earth from that height one day. Reminded me a little of my favorite ever Vimeo video (not a timelapse):  
    • 1.74x - A Crop Odyssey - Canon 5D Mark IV officially announced
      Ok Mattias, I've now watched the rest of it... He reads specs from Adorama off his smartphone. Praises the video aspect with no mention of crop factor or lack of C-log assist features etc.. Talks about how Canon gear just works.. Then plugs his video tutorials. What exactly am I missing here dude?? PS: i much prefer/value your very own concise & reflected 5 reasons why vids then this rushed mess..
    • What I love about Canon and what I hate about Canon
      Yes, smart adapters cost more than dumb ones mostly (but not always). The thing is that the latest Nikon lenses ALSO need smart adapters to use on other cameras but for the most part there aren't any.        There IS now one for Sony E mount (I am not sure what Nikon lenses it will work with though).         Some dumb adapters cost as much or more as my cheapest EF to E smart adapter. I have four different brand EF to E smart adapters ranging from less than $100 (and that is less in Australian dollars so well under $100 US) to a Metabones IV, I have a Kipon EF to M4/3 smart adapter but I also have a EF to M4/3 dumb focal reducer and a Nikon to M4/3 dumb focal reducer both of which were quite cheap (and both of which I find to be not great and hardly use)..        I have many dumb adapters for Nikon to E, FD to E, FD to M4/3, FD to Pentax K, MC/MD to E, K to E, K to M4/3, MC/MD to M4/3 lots of others too (some for cameras I no longer can use like FD to Pentax Q, K to Q).      Some dumb adapters I have several copies.     The cost of most of these to me is the cheapest I could find on Ebay but I could have paid a lot more for some. Some dumb adapters have aperture controls in the adapters - these tend to cost more too (I don't have any).    Some dumb adapters also may have issues focusing to infinity- more so with the cheapest ones.     You pay for what you get but for the latest Nikon or Canon lenses to work properly, you need a smart adapter- lots available for Canon lenses and to several mounts, one currently for Nikon to one mount.         Older lenses depends- FD Canon is as easy as Nikon pre AI/AIS.   EDIT     The other thing is that with all those adapters to other cameras, there are very few that can be used to adapt others ON Nikon cameras. I even have a couple of adapters for M4/3 lenses on E mount (fun adapting the Olympus 15mm bodycap lens which is a dumb lens anyway and I think the lens is BETTER on my A7s than it is on M4/3)!
