To me, the concept looks like an invitation to get seriously involved in 3D printing, roll your own body, attach lens and back according to your design intent.

........transfer images from cf to sd in camera.....

The trouble is that when i am on location with my ipad, i have no way of reviewing the images on a larger screen. The ipad only takes sd, and i only shoot to cf......
At the risk of coming off as an iBasher, use an android tablet with DSLR Controller installed.
There'll then be no need for in camera file juggling, you can view photos stored on the camera directly on the android device's screen and/or copy files individually or in batches onto the android, with an OTG adapter, copy from android to any USB thumb drive, card reader or whatever.

What possesses someone to hand down a slate of commandments for how other people should behave?

Strikes me as the epitome of arrogance.
That's a Q and A with all manner of deep, philosophical, political and religious implications, discussion of which is inappropriate to a photo gear head forum.
Were it not inappropriate, I'd also ponder what makes people accept such commandments.

Quote NX1......

Hey IR, hellooooo....
IR mentions weather sealing on the page linked above and on
Samsung claims something different.

you can find......
"This product is not water or dust proof. It is designed to resist dust and minor splashes only. Exposure to severe conditions is not recommended."
So, IR, let's not spread falsehoods, 'mkay?
Winston Churchill was credited with saying "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to put its pants on".
Sorry to go on about weather sealing, that was the only thing that really caught my attention in the IR quote posted above.

My basic settings for Av, Tv and M are BBF, auto ISO, f6.3 @ 125th.

6D has only two 'C' settings, both are configured for tripod use in full manual, ISO 100, f6.3, 125th.

One set for tethered shooting has BBF disabled, shutter button controlled focus so that DSLR Controller can control focusing via android phone or tablet.

The other set retains BBF, drive mode configured for infrared remote release.

I like these modes as I can tweak to my heart's content for any particular scene, all base settings are restored by powering down and back on or switching modes and back. Less chance for a ruined shot due to a Senior Moment.
An interesting question, I expect you'll get a variety of answers to this topic such as the BIF settings posted above by weixing.
You could sure set them for specific focus cases you might occasionally use, perhaps some flash specific settings such as HSS.
I'll be most interested to see other's responses.

Google knows everything about your internet and smart phone use.  They even photograph your home.  They are now developing drones to follow you from the air.  They also have facial recognition, and in the future, you will be bombarded with ads as you walk by or into any brick and mortar store that has the service.   That might make you very careful as to what stores, bars, or other places you visit.
Casinos in Las Vegas have used face recognition for a few years now, but the only people who see direct results are those who were banned from the casino.  Others are merely tracked.

Mmm, Guiness, yesss please.

Here's what I use......
Wide gamut, DisplayPort input, integrated (and device specific) calibration, get the hood too.

Eizo is another high line brand with an excellent reputation.
I think Dell has some less pricey wide gamut monitors too.
If you expect to print, step up to a printer profiler, profile each printer/paper/ink combination you'll use, soft proof in Lightroom using the intended printer profile while viewing on your calibrated monitor, prints come out pretty much identical to what you viewed/edited on the monitor.

Keep it simple.

I suggest a Canon T3i or a Pentax K-3 or K-5 IIs, a single prime lens in the so called 'standard' range of 35, 40 or 50mm. No need for a beginner to use faster than f1.8.

Both brands include a pop up flash, with a little experience, upgrade to off camera flash.
Just looked at B&H prices, yikes, Pentax lenses are higher than I expected. Pentax 40mm pancake is ~ USD $550, Canon's is only USD $200.

Technical Support / Re: Question about " FORMAT" of the memory cards.
« on: November 07, 2014, 01:15:34 AM »
Dear Friend, Teacher and Fellow Student Surapon,

I use only SanDisk SD cards.
I use them straight out of the package with only factory formatting, I swap them back and forth between my 6D and my Nikons, swapped out from my 6D to a Pentax 645Z in a shop and back again, no unexpected issues, ever.
Images from one camera will not always display (sometimes will display but not properly) on another, especially raws, images are always fine on a PC through a card reader no matter how I've juggled the cards around.
My experience is counter to conventional recommendations but that's what I've experienced.
All that said, if you plan shooting large videos over 4GB, probably best to format to exFAT on a PC with a card reader, test such cards on all your camera bodies. I expect older bodies might exhibit issues with exFAT.

Henry Ford's electric railway, 1927 - 1930.

Canon General / Re: what's wrong with this shot?
« on: October 31, 2014, 08:07:15 AM »
What is the subject?
Nothing compelling to draw the eye.
Blown highlights.
Poor shadow detail.
Tilted horizon.
Wide angle distortion.
Nothing sharp in the shot anywhere.
Looks like a grab shot from an iPad.
Print and hang it, see if anyone gives it a second look.
Sorry, you asked.
