  1. Hello all,

    I'm currently using a G7 for paid work but I want to embrace the anamorphic beauty for a couple of personal projects, mainly handheld and couple of steady shots.

    What's the best all arounder lens (no speedbooster, only adapters) to use? My guess would be something between 35 and 50mm?

    From my understanding the X factor of the ANA lenses cut the crop factor of the sensor right? So 50mm with a X2 it's a 50mm FOV with a 100mm DOF?

    Thanks in advance.

  2. I can't seem to find the answer to this. I have a GH3 and I just need this answered to buy a G7 like tomorrow. 

    Regarding 1080p video, how does the G7 stacks against the GH3? (mainly for slow-motion shots everything else would be 4K recorded)


  3. This whole 5D Mark II raw got my attention because of how cheap you can get a 5D these days.

    Considering that I might give it a shot now but first I could use some help.


    How does the image quality stands against a Lumix GH3? (which I own but I miss that dreamy look from FF and APS-C sensors) And how much more "gradable"(?) it is?

    Is it really worth the VAF filter? (I know what it does but is the moiré really that bad?)

    When shooting RAW can you shoot 720p 60fps? How do you do you slow-mo shots?

    Is audio still a problem? Or is it worked out?

    When buying a second hand camera (I never understood this one) is it better to have less shutter counts or less video made? 


    I think this is all for now!

    Thanks in advance and great shots Volker, especially the ones testing the Minoltas outdoors (ugh I wish I knew how to change the mount).

  4. So I took advantage of the crazy deal here in Switzerland and apparently I got one of the last ones.

    I have a question regarding 4k vs uhd.

    From what I gathered online 4k apparently has a little less rolling shutter than uhd, but uhd is supposed to be a little sharper.

    I tested both and I can't tell the difference in image quality.

    They both have the same horizontal FOV, uhd having more room in the height. Uhd also has more height framing adjustments possibilities if you crop to 2.35:1.

    Since there is no horizontal FOV gain with the 4k mode,  I don't see the advantage of shooting 4k over uhd? I could not tell visually that the image was higher res as well.

    appreciate some input on this thanks

    Do you know how many they still have? Looking to buy one in the end of the month

  5. But be careful, Switzerland is not European Union so you have to pay at least VAT upon import... but then even with the 19% VAT in Germany it's still cheaper than buying locally.

    Yeah that's why I'll probably ask a friend who lives there to send me one. Still cheaper!

  6. Yeah I talked with Digitec they only do nacional shipping but I have a friend living there so I'll probably ask him to ship me one since it's the best price in Europe!


    "but I think it's pretty useless without the kit lens Andrew mentions anyways"

    I'm not gonna buy any NX or S lenses only Nikon (because of the aperture control) is it bad? 

  7. http://www.hifinesse.be/wfi-761672.html (in Dutch, sorry).

    They also have a NX500 with kitlens for 449. Only seller yet with these prices though.

    With all the love going around here for this somewhat tragic camera, I thought I'd mention this as an indication where prices may be going. Looks like patience is paying off for potential buyers, at least in the regions where Samsung announnced discontinuation. 

    Do you know how much is the international shipping?
