  1. Is there a Viltrox AF speed booster for Nikon?

    Canon XC-M ???

    Canon are so incredibly stupid, they could have did this 5 years ago and everyone who had invested in their lenses would have bought into this for eternity! At Canon they have one policy, ie "What's the least we have to do?", because that's what they keep dishing up!! I'm over Canon, they're completely useless and unnecessary now!

    Best photo/video hybrid?

    I'm in a similar position as you. I bought a new refurbished Nikon D810 for $1800 with 3 years warranty and shutter count was under 50. 1080p but 14stops of dynamic range! I bought a G7 for $500 for when I need 4K. You can actually buy 3 or 4 unbeatable AIS lenses for less than $300 for video and you're ready to roll!! I have the 24- 70 and 70 - 200mm Tamrons VC and 4 Leica R lenses now. I couldn't be happier and can go D850 when I get more money if i want?

    Sony A7R III review - the BBC fixed Sony's colour!

    I guess it's the emperors new clothes here, the Sony Image has this murky brown magenta look to it which I don't like. I don't need to post anyone to prove it, just open your eyes! It gives the image a fake look that is distracting, like when you look at video cam image, the first thing you think is, oh that was shot on a videocam! Every time you look at a Sony video you will now see it, and think the same!! It comes from working with sony cameras almost every day for 2 years but owning Canon and Pana Cameras and realising that image is far superior! I was hoping that it was a colour issue, but it still looks murky blacks and plasticky to me with the AR3! Video that doesn't have this problem is canon etc, any high end camera that is not sony, just google canon video. my 2c

    Sony A7R III review - the BBC fixed Sony's colour!

    ok the color is better but i still don't like the sony image! Always looks fake, like a videocam image looks fake, I know it's 4K image etc but all sony cameras have this fake look about them? Don't know why other PPL don't see it? ps I used some of the best sony cameras almost every day for 2 years.

    New Ryzen 8 core 16 thread CPU

    The Ryzen 1700 is supposed to run at variable speeds, from 3.0 up to 3.7mhz. Mine runs comfortably at 3.9 @ 1.3375v but I've set it to 3.8 which is all I need.

    New Ryzen 8 core 16 thread CPU

    I got the same mobo and memory but have the msi 1070 videocard!

    New Ryzen 8 core 16 thread CPU

    Just bought an AMD Ryzen 1700 CPU @ 3000mhz and a cheap msi am4 mobo + 32gig ddr4. It's the new way cheap 8 core chip and it edits 4k like a charm no more stutters, super smooth. My old i5 was terrible. Anyway if you haven't heard look up the Ryzen CPU's they're a bargain 8 Core (16 threads) and a no brainer esp. for editing needing to upgrade. Even with an 8gig 1070 videocard my i5 2500k didn't like 4k at all. btw I bought the Ryzen 1700 because it's the cheaper cpu and it overclocks easily to 3.9mhz with stock cooler with no fuss.

    5K RAW video on the Olympus E-M1 II usable for short clips!

    The colours look amazing and it looks really filmic too or maybe that was the lens? This is 10 bit or 12?

    Opinion - DXOMark's camera scoring makes ZERO sense!

    Tony Northrup who is a Programmer/Science background has plenty to say about DX0 ranking system. Color Rendition is based on how they feel about it apparently ie not any objective data etc. He said the same, DX0 ranking is deeply flawed from a technical standpoint!
