  1. Thanks, I am still waiting for official reply about luggage - some airlines already replied that's it's ok, some say that I have to check with specific airport - no always yes or no answer. The goal is to check and find the tripod to make many 3 days trips without the paid luggage. ( head + camera + tripod + level.. ~<7kg ). Funny that I am looking for exactly the same set. 502 seems a better deal for me. 1. What rig are you using? 2. What could you say more about twisting? Is it really a big problem when head is hardened? What if we could: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fj6fMcJ18aA :-) Waiting for your sunwayphoto dhy-66i test with this rig.
  2. Hi, Thanks for response. It's funny I was looking to buy in the same store... ;-) Here is a complete list of what I've found on the internet ( >160cm, <55cm ) : Max height | Folded | Weight | Price http://foto-tip.pl/pl/statyw-triopo-ge-3232x8c.html 190 / 47,5 / 1390 / 170$ http://foto-tip.pl/pl/statyw-triopo-me-3232x8c.html 188 / 48,5 / 1730 / 110$ http://foto-tip.pl/pl/statyw-triopo-mt-3232x8c.html 185,5 / 48,5 / 1730 / 109$ ... Induro AT214 Alloy 8M - 167 / 54,5 / 2000 / 140$ Slik PRO 824CF - carbon - 163 / 47 / 1600 / 200$ Slik PRO 724CF - carbon - 163 / 47 / 1400 / 150$ Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 - 170 / 54 / 2100 / 400$ Manfrotto 755XB - 165 / 46 / 2500 / 300$ There is also Benro A2980F 170 / 56 / 2100 / 130USD, but it's 1,5 cm too long for most cabin baggage size. I am aware of Tripod Torsional Rigidity, that's one of the main problems. The quest is to buy a tripod for a ... hand luggage, not a "heavy one". 502 seems better thanks to hardness controll. I've though about Manfrotto levelling 338, about the same price. Seems that Triopo is one of the best - ~130USD, >170cm and 49cm folded. I just don't know the quality and stability at full height when compared to others. EDIT: On the other hand basic maths: RyanAir: a55 x b40 x c20 diagonal across the bag= √(a2 + b2) =~ 62-67cm will show that a 60cm tripod will fit into a hand luggage bag easily if we put it diagonally across the bag, but ... main question is: Can we travel with a tripod as hand luggage?
  3. Anyone? 1. 500 vs 502? 2. eye level perspective and as light and small ( max 52 cm ) as it could be in a normal price range? or similar?
  4. What do you think about: Panasonic LUMIX G Vario 45-150mm f/4.0-5.6 ASPH Lens, Black or Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 G Vario Mega OIS Lens when compared to 14-140mm in terms of lens image overall quality?
  5. Thanks, I've tried to find tests with specifc lens and camera, but they haven't tested it yet - so I've tried similar sensors like GH4 > GX7. We're talking about 4K UHD and thats ~8MPx. Marco, are you talking about the Samsung NX500 kit 16-50? Looking for Samsung 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 ED OIS Lens test with NX500.
  6. Looking to buy fluid head and tripod for GH4, for mostly video vehicle tracking shots: fast cars, airplane landings etc. Thats both fast and slow tracking, panning and tilting. There was a similar topic with 701hdv, but it was 2 years ago and there is new stuff available. 1. I've thought about Manfr 500 or similar like 502 - what do you think, buy 500 or 502 or other? I am also looking for tripod allowing me to make shots from eye level perspective, and as light and small ( max 52 cm ) as it could be in a normal price range. 2. Any suggestions? Price for whole set: tripod + head = < 350Euro.
  7. ​1. Achieve the highest possible sharpness and image quality, using the camera body <> lens kit 2. Find out if the lens sharpness matters - ie. what criteria to consider when choosing a good lens
  8. NX500: + codec ( but how does it really compare to G7? anyone? ) - hdmi output, lenses G7: + lenses, hdmi - codec LX7: + lens - hdmi output, no lens change All cost about the same. Question: What is the true lens resolution possibility ~ 1000 USD ? 1. Is it true that in m4/3 we can't really use practically more than the lens resolution of LX7 and 12Mpx, because there isn't a enough sharp lens ( > 10Mpx ) to use with G7 ( m4/3 or with adapter ) which costs less then 1000USD? 14-140 is only 6P-MPix ( dxomark ) and 14-42 is 7P-MPix. 2. Maybe the NX500 has a 28MPx sensor, but is there any lens configuration to use 15,20 or 25 MPx on NX500? 3. Is it true, that when we want to go for a true 25-30Mpx resolution, we have to buy at least D600/700/800 with a good lens? At last ... what do you think about lens res?
  9. I've had a G6, superb camera, but only 1080p. Sold to buy 4K. Is it possible to make a follow focus shot on either lx100 or fz1000?
  10. Andrew, thank you for your reply, now it's a clear comparision :-)
  11. Thank you for your responses. So, the true main differences that matters are: 1. wider zoom range in FZ1000 2. microphone input in FZ1000 3. better stabilisation on FZ1000 ( 5 axis works in the video mode or only photo? ) 4. CineLike profiles on FZ1000 5. quite faster lens on LX100 6. flipscreen on FZ1000 I've read all the posts and very good reviews on eoshd.com, before making a new post. Andrew, the problem is that I haven't find anywhere straight true and real, tested and verified answear to this questions: LX100 vs FZ1000 1. Which camera is better in low light? 2. Which camera has better overall video quality? 3. Which camera has better overall photo quality? ( not resolution, but the quality of pictures ) 4. Which camera has better "lens" quality? 5. Which camera has a cleaner image and is less noisy?
  12. Hi, I 'am trying to decide between FZ1000 and LX100. It will be a main A camera. It must shoot 4K and cost ~900 USD. I've already bought GP4 Black as B camera and I use old Dslr for stills, but it's not enough. Of course I can use a GoPro as a pocket camera, but it's ... I would like to use camera for: - stills and panoramas - timelapse and night timelapses - interviews* ( i want to mount a led lamp on camera ) ( I would like to record clear sound of voice outdoors and for example - car sounds. It would be good to connect a microphone, but I can also use external recorded if necessary ) - shots inside buildings - house, clubs - shots inside cars ( mountig a camera like a gopro inside a car ) - some follow focus shots - tripod panning and gunning - slider - some telephoto shots - travel *I'like to "wear" this camera with me, but I've heard that even LX100 is too big I will use Vari-ND, slider and tripod with fluid head or suction cup dslr car mount mostly. 1. What camera will shoot better stills? 2. Is the quality of 4K video the same with both cameras? 3. Which camera is better in low light? 4. I almost don't shoot handheld - only smooth shots with tripod, slider, gimbal etc.. Which camera is better to shoot those type of shots with tripod, slider, with suction cup and more ergonomic? Andrew, is it possible to do follow focus style shots on FZ1000 or LX100?
  13. Yeah, I've finished comparing it all and it seems that E-PM2 with sensor stabilisationis the best idea. So, going for E-PM2 :-) 1. Would you recommend any polarizer filter for 14-42? 2. Do you have any info about "good settings", some software or some tricks that you think are important to know for PM2? 3. Do you recommend some special lens for this camera as a second lens to 14-42? I've thought about getting Canon 50 and M4/3 adapter.
  14. Wifi in G6 is great, but wifi will interfere ( same frequency ) with electronics and the copter will crash. We can't enable wifi when flying either in any camera: G6, GoPro, GH4 etc. Example of crash - http://static.youreporter.it/video_Drone_incidente_a_Treviso_durante_il_decollo Same thing is about using "remote sharpening..." in RED.
  15. Thanks Julian & Andrew. Araucaria - yes, this is the main problem. Microvibrations. I am dividing aerial filmaking into: 1: GH4 with good lens - best for the most of videos. That's all. 2: GoPro 3+ and H3-3D gimbal - best for pocket copter travel filmaking. Fits in 1 hard case. 3: Red Epic and others - it's like 1DX and C300 on the ground. For specific situations, not every day. So, it's great to capture videos via GH4 from a gimbal. GM1 is great as a pocket camera. The problem is that it's just nearly 3 times ( ~ 850 USD ) more expensive than other cameras in shops ( ~280USD ). I am keeping the price low due to all copters reliability and strictly photo-copter-stuff use. Sometimes it's better to have a gear that doesn't cost a lot :-) used RX100 ~300USD on Ebay - Ok :-) Why I am looking for mirrorless? For lens replacement possibility. I've searched the shops and I've found: E-PM2 + 14-42 IIR E-PL3 + 14-42 GF5 + 14-42 GF3 + 14mm 1/2.5 A3000 + 18-55 EOS M + 18-55 Nikon 1S2 - I am thinking about E-Pm2 vs GF6 vs Nikon S2? What do you think of this three - the best?
