    Dog Schidt Optiks Flare Factory 58 (PL Mount) Review

    New skin but he manipulates the image path with optional inserts and coatings... https://nofilmschool.com/2013/03/dog-schidt-optiks-modifying-vintage-russian

    Dog Schidt Optiks Flare Factory 58 (PL Mount) Review

    Not even close ... there is a small badge of a dog in a squat on the lenses. Truth is Richard takes marginal glass and makes it sing. But is humble enough to acknowledge the fact he was not using Zeiss or Leica or Schott glass at that point. Loved the lenses ... which quickly escalated to levels that most cannot afford. Tongue in cheek ... not immature.

    Nikon Z6 AF Confirmed Not Working with NLog

    No cropped like the internal ... it is 10 bit 4:2:2 ... shame it is not FF.

    Nikon Z6 AF Confirmed Not Working with NLog

    90 percent of my lenses are not AF Nice for certain shoots but not a deal breaker... FF 4K 10 bit is a valuable addition to the mirrorless range of cameras. It was the Z 7 or the Canon C200 ... not missing the Canon at all.

    Nikon Z6 AF Confirmed Not Working with NLog

    Correct I have Andrew Reid's ZLog but most of my shoots are controlled on a major tripod and video head ... external recorder ... and again ... AF seems to be acceptable for me on the Z 7 with Nikon Z-Log in 10 bit. If I am traveling with the camera ... without all the ephemerata of recorder etc then AR ZLog will be great.

    Nikon Z6 AF Confirmed Not Working with NLog

    N-Log is only 10 bit and only to an external recorder ... you can simultaneously record UHD 8 bit internal but not N-Log. Nikon restricted it to 10 bit as most Log is kinda challenged with the limited color space in 8 bit. Canon has a decent 8 bit log ... but probably because their color science is good enough people are not pushing it in post.

    Nikon Z6 AF Confirmed Not Working with NLog

    On the Z 7 there are 493 AF PDAF sites ... on the Z 6 there are 273 AF PDAF sites ... do not have a clue if this would account for the difference. My setting for AF is AF-F Wide area ... not messing with face detect ... so it also may not be good if the issue is face detect.

    Nikon Z6 AF Confirmed Not Working with NLog

    External 10bit N-Log with the Z 7 AF is quite good ... have not taken the time to compare as I always use an external recorder with 10bit N-Log when using the Z 7. Is this AF on the Z 6 with the 24-70 or with all three native lenses?
  10. I continue to watch the unfolding drama about all the new new thangs ... so many choices. Needed better high ISO than my Leica SL so after holding the Z 7 for 5 minutes I ran with it. Here are a few short clips from it at this point: Someone say skin tones ... Dynamic Range .... Color ... Lotta choices ... made mine and not disappointed. YMMV ... pretty sure it will.

    Z 7 Whole lotta angst ... may be misplaced concerns.

    Link closed ... lack of interest ...

    Z 7 Whole lotta angst ... may be misplaced concerns.

    Purchased it 2 months prior to the Z 6 release ... and no low pass filter.

    Z 7 Whole lotta angst ... may be misplaced concerns.

    Seems like resurrecting a dead horse ... or camera. Z 6 da bomb ... Z 7 .... what? Spent the morning with the camera and lens ... 38F the high ... 25 mph winds ... glorious sky and light. First half is full frame ... water scenes DX crop to gain a bit of reach with the 300. AF was more than adequate for my needs ... YMMV. Here: https://vimeo.com/308603511 Bob

    Nikon Z6 Low Light

    Noise ISO Light ... not always a camera fault ... http://www.xdcam-user.com/2018/08/noise-iso-gain-s-log2-v-s-log3-and-exposure/
  16. Nikon Z allows three user settings ... 3 in stills and 3 in video. Probably best if you set the user setting in stills ... U1 for instance then setting for video on U1. When you change from stills to video in U1 you can go from P in stills to M in video ... should work ... have not tried it as I do most everything in M. U1 could be 4K 24P and U2 1080 crop.
  17. Some of the Sigma and Tamron lenses need firmware updates ... https://www.sansmirror.com/cameras/camera-database/nikon-z-mirrorless-cameras/nikon-z6z7-blog/
  18. Capture One 12 is out ... supports raw with Z 7 and Z 6.

    Who wants to have a go at grading EOSHD Z-LOG?

    I took a little time with the EOSHD Z-Log L this afternoon ... came up with the following. If you would prefer it in another thread please move it .... Looks good for the times I am out with the camera and do not want external recorder etc etc etc. Bob
  20. Gust of wind and you lose your hotshot. This is probably the best if you are not shy ... https://www.nubrella.com/?v=7516fd43adaa Or a Portabrace rain cover ... https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=porta brace rain cover&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ps
  21. Agree with the sentiment. But 5 cameras ... whenever I have a new camera it takes months to discern all of the intricacies of the menus dynamics and gotcha's. Truth be told ... any of these five will be profoundly better than most cameras a generation ago. Camera generation wise. Hopefully someone in the Youtub... sphere will have the humility and gravitas to suggest that reviewing anything today is not a quick process but one that evolves over the life of the product. And honestly any of these cameras will exceed the modest needs of most of us. You buy a horse after you have checked its flanks and its dentation. Ride it like you stole it. If we ... corporately spent more time shooting video than parsing the most recent expert review ... there would be some amazing mind numbing videos ...
  22. I have been waiting for the Novoflex LEM to Z adapter ... shown on their website but no shipping to the US. So hopefully BH will have them one day. Focus by wire with the 24 - 70 is marginal at best. Nice pictures in the article.
  23. Opened up the highlight recovery video for a bit.

    At times there is so much animosity on the threads here that I am loathe to comment. But a couple of

    questions were voiced about the DR of the camera.

  24. You are correct ... seems like the Ronin S has priority. Not enough margin in the high end to make up for the mass sale of commodities.
