    What about a cheap used, but near mint DJI OSMO Action for 150 euros including a set of ND filters?

    I just happen to have one for sale and for sale for no other reason than I just haven't used it as I thought I would. Used it 3 times in total!

    I would be interested, where do you sell it?

  2. Hello
    I'm not sure if you guys have any experience with these cameras (I don't!) but I would like to record "relaxing" videos of my bicycle rides and I was wondering if there's something cheaper than GoPro/DJI for this kind of content. Something similar to this guy 

    My requirements:
    - good 1080p30/60 or 4k30p
    - awesome IS, I want to put it on the handlebar
    - possibility to add an ext stereo mic

    Size is not that important, I won't be using on my chest or to record extreme bike rides. Just relaxing slow rides on asphalt or trails.
    The only cheap camera that I found as of now is the Akaso Brave 6 Plus, IS is not like the one you find in most expensive alternatives but I guess it could be good enough for my needs.

    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€ (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 ?

    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.

    The results showed it had a little more noise but there was more detail in the image and less color shift if any. 

    If it has the same grainy look I'm ok with that... will have to wait for more comparisons!

    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?
