  1. Thank you, Jonathan. Yes, it seems that's the problem, I'm trying to be sure before returning the adapters. I just got the answer from Neewer's tech support and I think it's the most ridiculous tech support reply I've got in my life: Thanks for sending me the video. Our manufacturer tells me that when shooting in a long focal length, the image will be shaky. Could you put the camera on a tripod instead of holding it in hand to have a try?
  2. Hi everyone, Recently I bought two EF->E adapters to use a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM with my Sony A7 III. First one is the Neewer Electronic EF to E adapter and the other one is the Commlite EF to E adapter. With both of them I'm facing the same problem, and I'm trying to figure out if it's because they're cheap adapters (never had this problem with my old A7S II + Metabones IV) or if I am doing something wrong. So the problem is that the SteadyShot works as it should work when the focal length is 70mm, but when I change it, especially when it's 200mm, the imag
  3. Hi everyone, I just bought a Sony A7SII plus a Metabones adapter since I come from the Canon 5D world and I have already invested some money in EF lenses. I work as a videojournalist and I change lenses a lot in the field, which is more problematic with a mirrorless camera than with my old 5D. I am thinking about buying a Fotodiox EF->E adapter with built in ND filter. The ND filter would be useful since I use prime lenses, but I want it more to protect the sensor from dust. The adapter would be permanently on the camera and when I change lenses the filte
  4. I'll mos def buy a 1DXmk2 when it comes out, and I'm trying to figure out which hardware should I buy to set up a RAID 0, which seems way cheaper than SSD drives to work with the 4K MJPEG files. Could you please, Andrew, share what hard drives and RAID are you using? Thanks in advance.
  5. The DXmk2 is a dream camera for a breaking news videojournalist like me. Weather sealed and robust as a tank with 4K, 120fps 2K and Dual Pixel AF, it's perfect for shooting riots, sports or any action scenario where a C300mk2 would be too big and obtrusive. With custom picture profiles I don't think CLOG would be missed. But deciding not to include focus peak, when we've been using it in the 5Dmk2/3 for almost three years thanks to the Magic Lantern team, can only be described as one of the biggest GREEDY and I-don't-give-a-f*ck-about-my-customers movements in the history of the camera industr
  6. Thanks a lot for all the feedback, I appreciate it very much. Just to clarify a couple of things: I'm a freelance videojournalist, I don't work for the Animalist Party nor I belong to them. I do take some assignments from them from time to time to do journalistic work: go to places where there might be animal abuse and document that. Although this video was my idea. I went there by my own and later offered it to them. If you don't find the event abusive with the horses, that's completely fine. It wasn't my intention to make the audience react negatively towards it. I used a cinematic style but
  7. http://vimeo.com/152159680 For all the slow motion parts I used the RX100 mk4. For the 25fps parts I used a Canon 5D mk2 with prime lenses.
  8. I bought it yesterday and returned it today. The image quality doesn't even get closer to a 5Dmk2. The noise in ISO 3200 is terrible and don't even try to use high ISOs when doing 120fps. The Android app is unstable. Some times took me 10 minutes to pair with the camera on my Galaxy Note 4. Unusable for a professional assignment. Couldn't make it work on full 4K because the app would freeze. Battery life is ridiculous, about half an hour. The ventilation holes for the camera are just in the top of it, forget about using it even with gentle rain. And the construction seems weak, doesn't look
  9. What's this camera's maximum ISO? Anybody knows?
