    Viet Bach Bui got a reaction from Inazuma in Looks like the Fuji X-T20 gets 4K!   
    Some reasons:
    - Tiny grip, even compared to the A7 line, and especially compared to the GH line.
    - Stiff shutter dials that require a two-finger grip to turn. The dials on the A7 and GH line are easier to use.
    - Aperture ring on lens. This make it hard to change aperture on the fly without making the camera shake.
    And since you brought up the X-T2, where is the movie record button? I love being able to record video instantly in any mode.
    Edit: one more: the grip on the Fuji is covered in some kind of easy-to-slip semi-hard plastic, unlike the soft, grippy rubber on DSLRs and the A7, GH cameras.

    Viet Bach Bui got a reaction from mercer in Canon sponsored content on DPReview   
    I don't see a problem with sponsored/paid content (even here at eoshd), as long as it is clearly labelled as such and not being propped up by the host. The real problem is reviewers giving dishonest opinions to gain or retain benefits from the companies, so as long as their reviews remain honest, what's wrong with them getting side income for a service that you're getting for free?

    Viet Bach Bui got a reaction from Emanuel in GoPro Karma   
    I looked at the video's thumbnail and saw the Karma fully extended sitting next to the Mavic completely folded so I can already guess which one the author is biased towards.

    Viet Bach Bui reacted to Lintelfilm in Full Frame Aesthetic?   
    @Mattias Burling (and following on from my own answer) of course this is where super fast lenses for smaller sensors come come in. An f/0.95 on MFT will be ROUGHLY equivalent to a 1.8 on full frame. If we talk about zooms only, the Sigma 1.8 APSC zooms are roughly equivalent to 2.8 zooms on full frame. And seeing as you can't get 1.8 zooms for FF you could argue they negate the FF advantage. But then you get into advantages of specific lens features etc (such as IS, focal range, AF) and it comes down to which system suits your needs best. I moved from MFT to EF for various reasons but partly because building a lens collection around EF on a S35 sensor is as close as you get to a video/cinema standard now (below PL of course).

    Viet Bach Bui got a reaction from Shield3 in A7R II vs Canon 5d mark IV as hybrid cameras   
    If you're a professional making money from stills photography then 5D4 because it has pro features like better build, deeper buffer, faster fps and dual card slots. If not then the A7RII is a more well rounded camera and will give you a better experience shooting both stills and video. Don't worry about color science too much because it's only hard to get right when working with slog, the image is already mighty fine in the other profiles.

    Hmm you can get 4 Xeen primes for the price of the Sigma pair.

    Funny how the competitor camera's inferior IS can selectively stabilize only certain parts of the image: the background is sharp and woman is not.

    Isn't v-blogging the type of video where you talk to your audience in front of a camera that is fixed (because there is nobody else to operate it)?

    Viet Bach Bui got a reaction from The Chris in Sony seem to have botched their menu re-design   
    You missed the page titles under the "camera" tab. You got 12 pages because a) Sony put most of the items on the first menu level instead of a multi-level menu and b) there is no scrolling required.
    I have used Nikon for a while before and their menu isn't really better. And Olympus' menu also has 11 pages which are organized as vertical tabs (vs Sony horizontal tabs where you can use the left-right button to quickly move between pages).
    As I said before, the current grouping in Sony menu is not very intuitive and if this is fixed then there is nothing much to complain anymore.

    Viet Bach Bui got a reaction from veraguth in The 4K Fuji X-T2 is here   
    Nice cherry picking You should redo that with Nikon's own 24-70 f2.8 (http://j.mp/29NNDmG). That Sigma is a) a third party lens and b) not in the same league as the Sony GM or the Nikon Nano.
    If you had mentioned Canon then I would have agreed because the Canon 24-70 f2.8 is compact and the whole package is shorter.

    Viet Bach Bui got a reaction from Jonesy Jones in Sony FS5 RAW/Prores footage... where is it?   
    It's quite obvious that something was wrong with the FS5 setup in that video. That is as soft as a 720p footage being played on a full HD screen. Anyway, I just found the videos below on Vimeo. I think the image's got great tonality and should handle well in post.

    When the A6300 overheats at 10min it's total crap. When Fuji does it it's brilliant because it can be increased to 30min with a grip, nevermind the fact that one can be used on the A6300 for the same effect
