  1. You have to get some Chernobyl batteries to power you device ;)
  2. I'm going to buy a BMPCC. I have the option to get one from the dealer in my country at $1350. Wrapped cameras are going for about $700 on eBay. I guess many purchased in the sales. With tax and shipping it becomes about $900. So what I'm wondering about is will I get problems if I need to send camera inn for issues? Is the BMPCC prone to problems causing it to have to be returned for service? I feel safer choosing the local dealer, but the difference in price is a nice lens.
  3. How does these compare to the Voigtlander Noktons? There is Nokton 10.5mm coming I believe?
  4. Typical of compacts to have flaring issues. In many cases it is internal flaring due to light reflecting off the sensor in the small space.
  5. Thanks for sharing! I'll turn it off too. I had noticed that the import charges were too high.
  6. 4.44Mpx is what it will be. If you manage to sample several data points from one site (like the Foveon sensor) you get better colour acuity, clarity and resolution compared to a Bayer sensor, but you don't more pixels in x or y direction.

  8. The more the specs go wild, the more I feel the urge to look backwards :-) But, impressive feat.
  9. This doesn't even start to compute. :) Your saying either A) one need to buy every new camera to learn, or B) it is the gear that is important. Both are wrong in my mind.

  11. Two words : Budget & priorities :) The camera won't degrade :) and if something better comes along then there are choices. :) Example: I pre-ordered the BMPCC, but cancelled the order when reviews pointed out the issues it had. Now the issues are fixed so the camera is worth considering again for me. I like film IQ, not video. The BMPCC IQ is more to my liking, but the LX100 is an easier camera to work with I'd expect. As for my photo cameras (Sigma dp series) I bought them as soon as they came out full price. Because it was top priority for me :) That said I still use the old versions from 2009 also as they have unique IQ.
  12. Thanks! I see that to fix the whit orb issue one must send the camera in for calibrations. Perhaps it is better to buy a new camera than a used? Or do they accept all cameras?
  13. Thanks! That explained it very efficiently :)
