    Sony E mount to Nikon Z mount adapter

    Wow it works with the EF-E adapter on top. What company is developing the adapter, may I ask? Or is it a small indie producer?

    Sony E mount to Nikon Z mount adapter

    Woah. Good news. Prototype or already released adapter?
  3. Nikon has registered several new models with the wireless agencies worldwide, with rumours that a high-end mirrorless Z9 is due to be released this year, along with a more affordable Z5 aimed at the lower-end of the full frame market around $1200. The first affordable Nikon APS-C DSLR to shoot non-cropped Super 35mm 4K is expected to be the Nikon D5700. Read the full article

    EOSHD Opinion - The Sony A6400 is an absolute turkey

    So we should all rush out and but the camera with the best product market strategy!? Doesn't seem like much fun to me. Personally I will buy what works for me, preferably that which is well designed and innovative.

    EOSHD Opinion - The Sony A6400 is an absolute turkey

    The A6300 was a dog back in 2016 when the competition was far less, no X-T3 or G85 back then, or E-M10 III. X-T3 is a similar price now to when the A6300 was released back in 2016. The X-T3 today is $1399 new (less used) and the A6400 is $900 so a difference of $500 max, the price of a low-end Sony E-mount prime. The 23mm F2 and 35mm F2 Fuji X lenses are cheaper than their equivalent Sonys and the 18-55mm F2.8-F4 zoom is superior to any Sony APS-C zoom equivalent for just $300. I don't see why people would be interested in paying more for the A6400 + primes + decent zoom than the equivalent Fuji kit. If you look at the A6400 body in isolation, sure it's cheap-ish. But it's also naff-ish, 2-3 year old tech with terrible rolling shutter and bad ergonomics. The target market is a prime area to do some innovations... flip out 5" touch screen for example. All-new user interface and menus suited to touch screen operation. Better touch-pad AF interface. Better smartphone integration and Bluetooth LE. Sony took the easy option and did nothing.

    EOSHD Canon C-Log > Rec. 709 tips?

    Google search for C-LOG LUTs. It works with any Canon C-LOG to Rec 709 LUT. Even the Rec 709 option built into most NLEs will do the job.
  8. This cut-price unimaginative attempt to corner the Vlogger market is a load of shit. Oops. This will be a short blog post. Read the full article
  9. If you enjoyed my Super 16mm c-mount adventure on the new EOS M50, you might want to take a look at the latest Magic Lantern endeavours on the original EOS M. Pictured above is mine with the Kern-Switar 26mm F1.1. Read the article
  10. This is a really surprising by Nikon, as I expected Sony or Panasonic to do this first. Nevertheless the Z6 and Z7 will be the first mirrorless cameras to offer 4K RAW via HDMI to an external recorder - namely the Atomos Ninja V. Read the full article

    EOSHD's best and worst cameras of 2018

    Here's my top 5 cameras of 2018. Of course we all know "there's no such thing as a 'bad' camera" any more but there is such a thing as a dull, boring rip off. Then there's the stuff that has a shelf life of a few months, that you just know is a stepping stone before the real deal arrives. In many ways 2018 was a good year to keep hold of what you have and wait for the dust to settle. An eventful one for technology, especially in the second half where we saw some glimpses of the future. In 2018 we had six truly great cameras for filmmakers and a few that didn't make my top list like the RX100 VI but which are nevertheless still useful in one way or another. Read the full article
  13. I'm confused. Is just the sensor colour sampling bayer raw, or entire codec is RAW data in that mode? How can HEVC support RAW video?

    Why Is Sony Fanboyism So Bad?

    I recognise that guy... Blackmagic customer support boss!

    Nikon Z6 Low Light

    Still not following you I'm afraid. Are you saying that the image is noisier at ISO 4000 1/50 F4 than ISO 4000 1/50 F1.8? In that case your exposure is brighter by nearly 2 stops due to F1.8 vs F4 so you cannot be exposing both shots the same with both the 50mm and 24-70. A brighter exposure always shows less noise at high ISOs, no matter what the camera.
