    Image Stabilisation

    Thanks for suggesting Tamron. I tried the short 17 - 50 2.8. Interesting range ... but it it not very sharp, and that is what I expect in a wide angle lens: a lot of detail, as wide shots usually have a lot of detail. The Tamron also 24 - 70 2.8 seemed a good option. There is no comparable lens by Nikon. Nikons 24 - 70 2.8 does not have an image stabiliser. But, sorry - I am sending back the Tamron tomorrow. It is not a 2.8, rather a 2.8 1/2. It has a yellow tone to it. It has by way less contrast than the nikon lenses. It has a lot of distortion a the lower end of the range. And again, it do
  2.   I shot with the d5200 for a couple of days, and watching the footage today I also discovered some banding in the shots - this is frustrating. The banding appears in low contrast areas such as nearly white sky or white walls with almost no detail, but sometimes also in dark shadows ...

    d5200 hack

    this might work for the d7100 - I choose the d5200 though. First it has that little display you can move, which is very important for the project I am on, second, d7100 produces strange artifacts in very fine detail. I saw that in the test I made, and I guess it is because of the missing low pass filter on this camera. The d7100 gives even more detail then the d5200, but these artifacts are a problem - they look like scaling artifacts. On the d5200 it don't find these artifacts, and also I don't see any moiree problems so far. So this is the better camera for filming, but it does not accept an

    Actually I only tried a AF-S lens on the d7100 - that lens of course has a chip. By the way - problem only exits in live view, but you need live view for filming.

    d5200 hack

    Sorry folks, that's what I was expecting, when I bought the camera. But actually it does not accept any of my nice old manual focus Nikon lenses. I simply gives an error message, when you connect any old lens without chip to it. Liveview does not work with these lenses. The same thing happens with any AF-S lens, as soon as you start moving the aperture ring in liveview mode. The camera demands to set the aperture back to f 22 and lock it. If you are trying this while recording, it immediatley stops recording. You here the "clack" of the mirror, and that's it. That is why I send back the first

    Image Stabilisation

    thank you, folks.         Is there a 17-55 2.8 with VR? Seems a good option, but I don't think it exists. Only without VR! I tried that in the store, it's nice, but no VR! Is the Tamron 17-50/2.8 VC really any better than the Sigma?     sorry, but with a viewfinder and a pistol grip I am not invisible anymore. I got some shots using a Zacuto Z-Finder evf I connected to the camera with a simple Manfrotto tripod plate and a ballhead. With this simple construction the Z-Finder evf almost was at the same level as the lens. Images were fine - very stea

    d5200 hack

    Who is hacking the d5200? Need to change the aperture while shooting!
  8. Hi there,   I am a german-based cinematographer an I have observed dslr video only from a distance until recently. To many problems to really see the picture. The GH2 I once played with for a day or two, I actually liked he best - lots of detail in the pictures, and that little screen is useful - but than again the clipping of the highlights and the banding in the sky, and worst, those deep shadows - not really an option. Now I have a project I have to shoot with a small camera, it need to be almost invisible. I did some testing with the Mark III and the d5200. At first I was really imp
