    Fuck, this camera is a glorious failure.

    It only hurts for me and other early adopters. The rest of you are going to get a bargain!!

    Why failure?

    If you live in Switzerland or near the boundary : Interdiscount website

    The Z6 + 24-70 f4s at 1782‚ā¨ (today exchange rate) in a reputable store, til the end of the week !

    The same price as the Fuji X-T3 + 18-55, woah, crazy ! In 6 months, we will be able to buy one and enter the EOSHD cheap camera challenge ūüėĀ

    Thinking about it, when the ProresRaw update will be available, it will be a damn awesome deal !!

    Too bad it doesn't ship outside Switzerland...

    Can anyone summarize what's all thing with Nikon being a failure, prices falling and stuff? I'm confused.

    Hi.  I rented a Z6 for this weekend.  It just arrived so I can't say much about it, but, I can speak to the performance of two Tamron lenses using the FTZ adapter.

    1.  Tamron 15-30/2.8 (version 1) works fine in both stills and video.  AF works as expected.

    2a.  Tamron 35/1.8 (version 1).  No AF in stills.  MF works fine, and the Z6 has a nice zoom button and peaking to allow precise manual focusing.

    2b.  Tamron 35/1.8 (version 1).  Does not work in Video Mode, neither MF or AF.  The Z6 loses its mind in video mode.  The aperture jumps around willy/nilly and sometimes error messages pop up.  Pretty weird, since the 35/1.8 is fine using MF in stills.

     Thanks, just curious how much is the renting per day?

    Thinner dies in the OLPF I'm guessing. Better s/n, less precise color discrimination. The A7III also does a lot of NR, so look at detail rendering between the two as well.

    seems like the details is there, that's the thing

    today i did a bit of filming in city, all handheld with the 18-55. Nothing really artistic, just trying out the same scenes in varios modes (8 bit-10 bit , f-log, Eterna,DR200 vs DR400)

    trouble now is editing the files, I don't have access to my main pc at moment, and my i7 laptop just can't play back files... you'll need to wait till sunday I guess before I can edit footage.


    Buy the way, I did find out how to set 1/50 shutter speed, with rear dial... but I found it by testing, couldn't find it in the manual.


    Is it a windows machine? if you have a i7 7xxx series you have hardware acceleration for playback, for 10 bit only with the 8xxx series.

    There are already tests online and over at DPReview showing the difference in high ISO performance between the X-T2 and X-T3. Most seem to agree that the increase in performance outweighs the slight loss of low light ability if I remember correctly. Check out the DPReview video I posted above.

    I will, do you own the x-t2? What do you think it's the maximum ISO you can go and still get an usable image?

    How does the rolling shutter, 10-bit, 4k60p, log profile and lens selection with the NX1 compare to the XT3? Are you really focusing on the 120p crop and not looking at the entire package? You can shoot 30 raw still images per second with the XT3 and 4k 10-bit internal with a true log profile, come on.

    The NX1 was a nice camera, but the XT3 is a NX1 that goes to 11, with a much better ecosystem.


    Isn't 4k60p cropped also?  I was just saying that I was expecting in 2018 to drop these freaking crop factors for >1.5k cameras that clearly shows they just can't handle the data.

    So did you check the ISO?

  7. I wonder if those features (still) missing and crippling are because they're really not able to do it technically or is it the trend CanonSony started? = "since others won't innovate that much let's just do little to no upgrades as well so we can get all the money that we can with zero costs".

    Did we get ourselves a new Canon/a6xxx?

  8. The NX1 was amazing until the Samsung marketing department came in and decided to make the image look like their TVs = oversharpening, supercolors and "wow effect" as if this product was the for mass to be sold in stores by people who knew nothing about cameras.
