  1. I shoot a Thai boxing competition in Pattaya with the Sigma 30mm 1.4 at night. Very good lens. https://vimeo.com/47599146
  2. No doubt it looks like a tech breakthrough however the both lens selection are yet limited. Sony E 35mm f/1.8 OSS is a good progress in auto-focus lenses with OSS but it took years from the introduction of the 50mm OSS. Some compromised has been made for both lens QC (good sample), and IQ. its already a few years now to be waiting for a complete system. (near PRO grade lenses for a camera with 10fps with the world fastest AF)
  3. D5300 and 7100 are the same soft and now well implemented video. Somehow the entry level such as the D3200/D3300 has the best video resolution and implementation. D3300 has 40mbps The nikon site say it take ultra sharp movies "The D3300 doesn't only take great photos, it takes dazzling 1080p Full HD video with sound, too! Record smooth, ultra-sharp HD movies" Google it here is an original file http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/nikon_d3300_review/sample_images/ but in youtube you can see better samples although it heavily compressed
  4. Speaking of Nikon, the D3300 has the sharpest resolution over the D5300.
  5. "The 1D C is of course top dog for resolution" Why? The 5d  shoot still raw. Still has a resolution of a photo which is greater then compress video
  6. Interesting to see effect of  lack of AA filter on the D7100 resolution. As we saw the D800E being sharper then D800 
  7. I really liked the in-dept overview and i share EOSHD thought about GH line needed to be FF i will always chose large sensor over 4/3 no matter how good is video implementation. Nikon is getting better and better with each camera iteration. My LX7 is good for video but very bad camera for still
  8. Stunning. [font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=3]Andrew, how did you stabilize the video?[/size][/font]
  9. GH3 Review [url="http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/panasonic_lumix_dmc_gh3_review/"]http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/panasonic_lumix_dmc_gh3_review/[/url] the video sample look sharp
  10. [b]EOSHD:[/b][color=#333333][font=Helvetica, Arial, FreeSans, sans-serif][size=3] I feel the actual detail in 1080p on the 1D X and 5D Mark III is closer to 720p in reality – so can this be improved to be competitive with the $700 Panasonic GH2?[/size][/font][/color] [color=#333333][font=Helvetica, Arial, FreeSans, sans-serif][size=3]This is why [/size][/font][/color][color=#b22222][font=Helvetica, Arial, FreeSans, sans-serif][size=3]I like EOSHD[/size][/font][/color][color=#333333][font=Helvetica, Arial, FreeSans, sans-serif][size=3].

  11. DSLR what? I am thinking to use my lumix LX7 as my primary travel cam and a gopro instead My DSLR/lenses LX7 combination. For now, the LX7 is my action cam with the gorillapod ballheadX [b] [/b]
  12. [size=3]Andrew[/size] [size=3][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Hope you will investigate the difference between the "6D All-I" and Nikon "D600 uncompress HDMI out "[/font] Not sure what they mean by uncompress. RAW[/size] [size=3]They are saying 8bit 4:2:2 so its not raw[/size]

  17. [quote name='EOSHD' timestamp='1347646956' post='18028'] Max... How is 72mbit too low for ALL-I? Trust me on that, it isn't low. I did love the OM-D in-body stabilisation. IS is important for some people but I prefer to shoot handheld with a shoulder mounted rig, the results are better than with IS. [/quote] Its [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]9 Mbyte/sec. So for 60P each frame will be 150Kbyte only. its about 10% quality jpeg compression. Take a photo to photoshop resize it to 2M pixel and save it with 10% quality then you will get [/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]150Kbyte image.[/font][/color] GH3 have 50mbps inter-compression which will have a blue-ray quality. its very good news. However for real motion-still experiences at 60p then [font="helvetica, arial, sans-serif"][color="#282828"]72mbit its a joke so it will be hacked for sure. If the 50mbps mode will be implemented properly then no need for [/color][/font][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]ALL-I. No point to store the same information for 60 frame again and again.[/font][/color] [font="helvetica, arial, sans-serif"][color="#282828"]shoulder mounted rig? Yes you are a pro but many potential buyers are not.[/color][/font]
  18. I can see two issues 1. All I bitrate is low. Does it will be hacked again? 2. No IBIS which is very important to video. No IS in prime lenses.
  19. [size=3][b][color=#333333][font=Helvetica, Arial, FreeSans, sans-serif]"Therefore EOSHD looks beyond the hype and asks – what is the point?"[/font][/color][/b] [font=Helvetica, Arial, FreeSans, sans-serif][color=#333333]The point is good IQ and portability. The sensor is much larger the RX100 and can be seen by many customers as better deal. [/color][/font][color=#333333][font=Helvetica, Arial, FreeSans, sans-serif] For guys like my father, its one of the options along with the NEX line.[/font][/color][/size] [color=#333333][font=Helvetica, Arial, FreeSans, sans-serif]For me I own the Nikon D3200 until D600 will be released. Bigger sensor = better IQ. I am still impress from my nikon D700 images[/font][/color] [size=3][color=#333333][font=Helvetica, Arial, FreeSans, sans-serif]and I sold it only because of whight and lack of video. Comparing the tonal/colour of my D700 VS D3200 the D700 eat the D3200[/font][/color] for breakfast in any regards. According to DXO at ISO 100 the D3200 is better camera, its far from the true. Canon? No good from them they keep the video to one that are ready to put 15K$. They provide good IQ if you ready to buy FF camera. Their APS-C is history. Are canon future will be as Nokia?[/size] [size=3]RX100 same as nikon 1 can not replace a DSLR for video. not the lenses, not the DOF not the video resolution as in the D3200. Nikon will give soon a very good video in the D600. They mention the word video every secound line in their website so the moving to that direction for consumers while canon will provide it to Pros.[/size] [size=3]Thanks for the great insights :)[/size]
  20. The night shoot was not edited, i dial the contrast all the way down to enhance DR. so it looks pale the girls video was difficult since it was manual focus at 85mm/1.4 I will by the  next version since no live histogram at live-view. But DR and resolution are Insane. Resolution is better  when using Higher F stop. Nikon is already there @ 700$
  21. Hi Andrew  ;) I know  you like sharpness so here it comes. night shoot are the sharper Killer in sharpness: Please download the original files which i took a few days ago https://vimeo.com/45405660 https://vimeo.com/45406066 https://vimeo.com/45405964
  22. Excellent review short and clear directly to the point. Its seems that after years of classic DSLR video development,  the mirrorles cameras show the way out to the big companies. Whay canon and nikon after so many years cant do it right?
  23. Cant wait forever for a large sensor camera with in body image stabilization,continues autofocus and true 1080p. Canon? their upcoming mirrorles camera  will probably not  have the combination of  in body image stabilization with true 1080p. Olympus? OM-D E-M5 have in body image stabilization but interlace video. Yes, interlace for 50 years old tube TV!! Panasonic? Good video in GH but no in body image stabilization :( Sony? click click click  :P I will by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V  until the GH3 or NEX-5N replacement. 
  24. But canon cripple it from all models including 3000-8000$ models in gave it in 15K price? Are video become a bargaining card?
