    • DPReview hype 5D Mark IV sensor dynamic range
      The first picture of the article to illustrate the increased DR comes from their review of the D810 and there is not mention of this... Kinf of misleading... Ā  Ā 
    • An adventure into the Panasonic GX85/80 begins - and a look at the Leica Nocticron for Micro Four Thirds
      @gethin I had both cameras. In video the DR is about the same. I did a series of side by side tests which I still need to edit together, but here's two clips from it anyway.Ā https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByDASBWUzaNVNWdxLVlwdXFBS1U/view?usp=sharing That one is more of a colour and tonality test than a DR test.
    • External Battery Power
      I have three of those batteries shown in the video (except mine are the XTPower brand).Ā  I used them for monitors and cameras that take 9-12 volts, but it is best to avoid using them directly on cameras that use 7.4 volt internal batteries, such as your Nikon D5300.Ā  One can use 9v batteries on 7.4v cameras, but there is the possibility of extra heat being generated by the higher than necessary voltage, which can increase noise and diminish camera life, not to mention that power is wasted generating that heat.Ā  I bought an inexpensive, solid-state adapter that efficiently knocks down 9v/12v to 7.5v. Ā  However, for most DSLRs and mirrorless cameras that use 7.4v, a more compact and less expensive method is to use clones of the Sony F550/f970 batteries along with a cheap battery cradle, as shown in this FrugalFilmmaker video: Ā  A lot of smaller monitors also take these Sony clone batteries. Ā  The cradle and clone batteries can be purchasedĀ  at Ebay and Amazon (links on the video's YouTube page), and they are already run 7.5 volts without any modification.Ā  You could even get two battery cradles and wire them in parallel to allow hot swapping batteries while you are shooting.Ā  By the way, the FrugalFilmmaker guy also made a video in which he used two cheaper battery cradles: Ā  You could also just simply use a7.4v AC adapter -- just avoid connecting anything to your camera that is also running off of AC (monitor, audio mixer, etc.) to avoid frying your camera in a reverse ground situation.

      It looks like there is huge amount of noise reduction. There is no skin texture left. Looks wrong.
