    • Sony a6300 4k
      Yup The d750 I use is much sharper than that, even the D5300. Key is disabling in-camera sharpening and doing it in post, & getting correct pin sharp focus/deep DOF (Both pretty tricky to get on a Nikon FF). With a FF sensor shooting wide scenes like these is not so easy as DOF is nearly always limited to a narrow area, so stopping down to F/8, zooming out, shooting from afar is best way to get deepest DOF. With smaller m43s/gh4/g7/ sensors these sharp scenes are easier to get but the shallow ones are harder. I believe the best compromise is S35 especially with a SB-ready E-mount (A6300).
    • Sony a6300 4k
      The part of the image that is in focus here is the fence closest to the camera. So, what you are looking at here is lack of detail because of everything except the fence is out of focus, not the D750. Also looks like you might be diffraction limited, shooting at a very tiny aperture. 
    • Samsung NX1 or...
      I don't know where u live but in Europe you can buy the NX1 (I did lol) for less than 800 euros ! NX1 price
    • Better Call Saul camera info
      Michael Slovis gave Breaking Bad a signature look with his cinematography. Most of that was film. Better Call Saul look's like they're trying to replicate it a bit, and are pulling it off pretty well.
    • A Tale of Two T2.0 Zooms (for A6300)
      Let's just say that's it's so cool to have @Brian Caldwell here posting ideas/threads. If anyone doesn't know: you're talking to the creator and inventor of the Speedbooster.  Some speedbooster s35 miracles that are possible are: -Nikon 20-50mm f/1.8 APS-C lens (with the legendary 28-70mm f/2.8 AF-S Andy uses) -Canon 17-50mm f/1.8 L APS-C lens (with the 24-70mm f/2.8, any version) -Canon/Sigma 17-75mm f/2.8 IS  APS-C lens (with the 24-105mm f/4s). Ideal s35 general purpose setup not available anywhere else under 50K+ -Canon 50-145mm F/1.8 IS APS-C lens (with the 70-200mm IS L, or Nikon 80-200mm F/2.8 AF-S Andy uses) -Sigma 17-24mm f/1.4 APS-C lens (with the 24-35mm f/2) A variable focal length 1.4 prime.   What many forget is that an FD version is available so some super cheapo 100$ish e-bay set-ups are: -Canon 24/28mm F2.8 Primes (17/20mm f/1.8 s35 lenses)  -Canon 50mm f/1.4 (35mm f/1 s35 lens)  -Canon 200mm f/2.8 (145mm f/1.8 s35 lens for 200-300$) -Canon 80-200 f/4 (60-145mm f/2.8 s35 lens - super performer)   Fancy that FF 50mm F/1.2 look they get with a FF 5D + 50mm F/1.2 L (5000$ set-up)? I do. LOVE IT.  Get a 50mm 1.2 FD or Nikkor (300$ish) + SB (400$) + Any NEX/Ax000 body (200-1000$). all as low as 900$ to get the same look for those bargain hunting.   All made possible by the speedbooster that crushed the line between s35 & FF formats.
        Now we're all waiting for it to do the same to MF & FF
