    6K30? Are you joking? Sony can't even do 4K 10-bit because A9 II has to be crippled for Sony's FX6 and FX9

    Still waiting on EOS R and RP review on new firmware that supposedly increased a lot on eyeAF distance and AF tracking.

    Tony! I'm trying to decide between these two cameras, my business is split 50% photo and 50% video. I am heavily invested in Canon glass so I am leaning toward the Canon (do you think Canon glass will look just as good on a Sony with an adapter?) But it seems like mirrorless might be the better option, so maybe I should go with the Sony?

  • Руслан Ахметов

    Canon updated firmware for EOS R. We are expecting your review about it.

    I don’t understand why everyone not only you wants to make video on thing, which you people dont even have a clue what is going to be looks and features like. What makes you to thing like this? It makes matter if Nikon, Canon, Sony have asked your opinion for improvement areas.

    56:01 .Thank you for looking at my photo , and thanks for the kind words. I had to do a lot of editing on that photo. there were a lot of trees and walls being her. i also exposed for the backgrounds so that I could get the blue from the sky in. If anyone wants to see more of those photos I did with her check out my Instagram @jm_photography_25. Thank you :)

    I feel like the green skin comes from the shows/movies we watch. All the netflix shows i watch seem to have a green tint which if im not wrong comes with the cinema cameras like the RED cameras. Maybe we see it so often in TV that we try to re-create those cinematic looks.

    PLEASE MAKE A VIDEO ABOUT THE SAMSUNG GALAXY NX CAMERA. This is such a wonderful camera and I love using it. I have all three Samsung Android cameras. I started with the Samsung Galaxy Camera then I bought the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 and finally I bought the Samsung Galaxy NX Camera. I love all three of these cameras. I even love letting my family and friends use the Galaxy Camera or Galaxy Camera 2 both in auto mode and letting them go off all day or week or however long and letting them just shoot as many photos and videos as they want. I also love that all three of these cameras are android which is how I share my photos and videos with my Google Photos account. I am very simplistic and minimalist and with new features from apple, I have decided to use my iPhone exclusively for color grading and editing videos with my iPhone. I also use Lightroom on my iPhone with a preset that I will create for each new batch of photos, so all they photos from an shoot or event will look the same. The only app outside of my iPhone or Android Samsung Galaxy Camera 1 and 2 as well as my Galaxy NX Camera, is iMovie on my Mac Laptop. I still use iMovie on my iPhone but it is severely limited and much more fully featured on the Computer vs the iPhone. Still usable on the phone though, just want that to be said. Anyway, PLEASE DO A VIDEO ABOUT THE SAMSUNG GALAXY NX AND SAMSUNG GALAXY CAMERA 1 & 2 PLEASE.

    Green cast can come from existing light/reflections. However intentionally making someone green is a choice. I don't believe it is a good choice unless you are raiding area 51 :)

    Tony And Chelsea, Not sure if you can do this because of Square Space? How about making a quick video about about Adobe Portfolio. Is it worth using if you are a Creative Cloud member. Also explain domain names and wether it's worth using their free domain name or buying your own domain name. If you can not make a video, then please reply back with anything useful.

    Thank you for your kind words and critique on my photo at 8:35! The doll-look was indeed deliberate. I wanted to change the title of the photo into "The Doll", but I already submitted it. Inspiring to see so many different styles every time!

    Hi T&C...
    Having had a look at Roxy's instagram, great feed by the way, I am not sure that you undrstand the difference between soft focus and light control; Roxy's feed has exceptional lighting control and the portraits are full of details that are rendered kind of smooth by the lighting; whilst soft focus aims at addressing the same issue of skin smooting also looses details. In the old days some particular lenses were used, maily low quality optics, some filters were used to introduce some kind of diffraction like effect, vaseline as mentioned and the old trick of streching a silk tight in front of the lens.
    If you have the time have a look at my submission No 97 in the feed titled Nancy, it is a full res jpeg 10Mb at 300dpi, start zooming in and you will see every single hair, every single skin pore as well as every bit of make up imperfection; however when you look at the full image it appears to be soft; the lighting used was a 10 inch fresnel box as key light, a 20x60 inch floor softbox at an angle of 40 degrees from the floor(more or less) and a strib box as backgrond light. A mix of hard and soft light, the hard one to give definition and details and the soft light to smooth the transitions; if I would have used a soft focus technique I would have softened the image but lost details.

    When using a mirror, IBIS does not show up in real time, so that is probably why we are not seeing IBIS in DSLRs.

    The first game of the Rugby World Cup starts in 90 minutes. It’s a shame that the Sony A9 II wasn’t ready, as it’s probably the first and only time a second-tier rugby nation like Japan hosts. It would have been a auspicious occassion for Sony’s launch, although maybe none of the pros would want to be a guinea pig for the new hardware

    Chelsea, I love you - who doesn’t?- but watching you agonize over Sony vs. (possible) Nikon devotion is so, well, frustrating? Dramatic? Endless? Suggestion: “Why can’t you go on as three?”

    The feel of the Nikon bodies are the best from the D3 and up ... that they never put the D850 in a D3 kind of body i never understood ... a mirrorless in a D3 kind of body ... the ergonomics , that would be the best ..the quality feel is just awesome ... i am waiting to switch back to Nikon from Sony ... as soon they have a 60MP or 80MP Z8 ...especially the 16 bit I like, (Hassy quality)

    Why $5000? Sony a9 is $3500. Why would they release the new model like 50% more expensive? Companies rarely do that, right?

    omg I have the Canon 135mm f/2.8 "soft focus" lens - I'm shooting fujifilm now but I can adapt it - maybe I'll do a series of "people after fights" but with the Canon "soft focus" set to MAX. haaaaa

      DIY Astro 27 days ago

      @Cine Decodificado Yeah, I don't get why they removed 24fps, other than to differentiate from their cini line cameras perhaps. Other brands are including 24fps though, so it's kind of like shooting themselves in the foot. Having said this, from a practical point of view, can you really tell 24fps footage from 25fps footage? I shot some footage of waves at both setting and couldn't tell the difference.

    • Cine Decodificado
      Cine Decodificado 27 days ago

      @DIY Astro I agree, I hated the Fuji system, too much settings... Canon is reliable and easy to use at least, but removing 24fps and that 4k video crop is another level.

  • Paul Fujita
    Paul Fujita 28 days ago

    It's interesting re: the "MILC" vs. "DSLR" debate - maybe the BigCamCo.'s should be using slicker marketing like "hybrid Mirrorless/DSLR" (serious). Bc as the stats show, DSLRs aren't going anywhere, responsible for SO MANY sales. Yet when Nikon updates a DSLR everyone goes "YAWN!" and it's not right. I get it, from a marketing POV, but in reality... it's a punch of a pertinent camera still...
