    Well maybe it is the same sensor that is going to be in the Sony A7s mk III LoL ?. 3200 Dollars if we are lucky.

    We can live in hope, but Canon making a market leader is a stretch, making it affordable is dream territory. 

    Still, if those specs did somehow drop into some kind of $5-6K mirrorless body... Couple it with the F2 zoom and you'd be set for life!

    Wow wouldn't it be neat if Canon actually came out with a ass kicking camera, no holds barred. Just leading edge stuff, as good as they can do. Not holding off on Anything. They would own the markets if they did. I mean there is no one that doesn't like Canon CS and DPAF.  And don't price it at 5000 dollars either like they are good at. Do it Canon.

    You want them to make a market leading camera, but not at $5000? ?

    If this sensor makes it to market, it'll either be in a top range Cxx body or some research camera.

    Not if shot with Arri, Red or Blackmagic cameras.

    So you are saying that if a woman has crisp looking hair in real life, those cameras magically add some silky conditioner to the hair?!

    My wife has very similar hair to the woman in the video and it does not look like a camera issue in the slightest... It is just showing the natural texture of the hair.

    From a quick play... salivating makes total sense. This lens is ever bit as good as you have heard. 

    Out of interest, do you have the XF 18-55 or 16-55? Would be very interesting to see a shoot out to see just how much the glass adds to that filmic look. 

  5. One extra little thing about the wing... Due to the engineering of it, you can't really slide the full 40cm as the pressure gets too much at the start/end.... but.... for the same reason... you get a natural ease in ease out on your slide. It's like an accidental feature and really cool.

    The main reason why most don't bring extra wheights or sandbags to a wedding to secure tripods is that it's just another thing to drag around all day, it's hard enough to keep up with everything that is going on, with slider shots you place your camera, make a quick sliding shot and move on and then it's much easier just to hold down the tripod yourself.

    Now I am getting used to doing the slide with one hand... I think I could easily use that setup at a wedding. I've realised that if I have the wing pointing parallel to one of the legs, it adds stability. I'll mainly be using the bigger manfrotto tripod though, but this is doable.

    @Jimmy that setup looks quite neat and compact, nice work!

    Thanks! though I will say that when trying to move the wing over it's full length, you need to put one hand on the tripod to fully steady it , when the tripod is at it's full size (still totally usable).... With the 90mm attached, this is even more pronounced. As I have it in the photo though, perfectly stable, leaving both hands to get even more smoothness

    I have a Mefoto travel tripod too and it's great that it can become so compact for carrying around. But I feel the legs are not that sturdy for heavier setups. The Edelkrone looks like a good addon. Thanks for the suggestion! How much does it usually cost vs a regular slider? Coz it looks like I can mimic a slider effect with my body, legs, and IBIS lol. 

    I got that second hand for £170... about $220 i guess? This is v1... v2 new is about $700.

    I've done dolly like shots with ibis and gimbal, but nothing comes close to the real thing imho

    Great username btw!

    What is that tripod? Is it one of those ones that can be changed into a monopod?

    Looks compact. Is it study enough for the slider?

    It's called a MeFoto travel tripod... Surprisingly sturdy for the size (I think the mobile phone camera made it look smaller than it is). Though the wing will be on a bigger Manfrotto at weddings. 

  10. I added a photo to the above post.... As you can see, i can just walk around like that as a standard tripod, then when a shot needs the slider... just adjust the knob on the right and it is ready to use... I can see it being an absolute godsend.

    I have the SliderPlus, it's a fantastic slider but even it is too big for me. I have been looking to sell it and buy a SliderOne but the Wing looks good too. Why did you choose the wing over SliderOne? Are there any advantages?

    Purely for size... I can leave the wing on the tripod and lock it to it's smallest size (about 7")...  I also don't like to rely too heavily on anything that can go wrong, like using apps or motors. (Though I assume you can use the plus with the motor?)


  12. No worries @jonpais, something about camera talk seems to bring the demons out in people ?

    I'm gonna try and avoid all talk other than trying to better my skills and knowledge.

    On a side note, I just took delivery of an Edelkrone wing, oh damn, this is a cool slider! Gonna be a fantastic tool to keep constantly attached to the tripod.
