I enjoyed it. 

Haven't gotten the courage yet to try much video on mine.  It's truly crazy to own this camera and not use its video.

Good stuff!
Did you try to compare 120fps vs 60fps 4K? My preference is the later, but on run and gun 120fps is a very useful tool, especially when you have to hand-hold it.

I just hope the Breakthrough filters guy is taking notice.*

There's a way to respond to feedback fairly/honestly, harness our collective experience/perspective to improve your product (crowdsourcing the rev 2.0 if you will)...  Or you can just make a boatload of claims, imply we're using similar products incorrectly without substantiation and just say 'trust me' a lot.

Lenses / Re: Shooting people with a 16-35... Any good ?
« Last post by Mikehit on December 13, 2017, 05:38:36 PM »
Modern sensors are so good, what is wrong with having the person far enough away to avoid distortion and crop in? Yeah, people will talk about 'not using the lens to its full potential' (whatever that means) but it is no different to putting 16-35 on a APS-C camera.
Sure, if you want the pride of knowing you have the best possible quality shot in the bag, but if you want to travel light it is a strong option.

In cases like this it is important to understand  the principles behind the 'standard' approach. There is nothing magical about an 85mm lens that makes it ideal for portraits - but on a 35mm sensor, but when getting a head and shoulders portrait using an 85mm means to have a frame-filling portrait you stand at a distance at which the proportions of the facial features look 'right'. It is the camera-to-subject distance that is most critical.

Constructive dialog, a rare bird on the interwebs. Great thread.

We don't get to see the results :|


depends how you look at the page.

I'm not going to spill the beans, I'll just leave it to everyone to guess what's got 74% of the vote.

Other times I may be walking around a track meet, cross country meet, golf meet, etc., with a backpack where I'll throw in an extra lens or body. Again, I could see myself slipping one of these babies over a lens so I can just toss it in the backpack without taking much care or worrying about it bouncing around a bit.

I have some of these for just such occasions:

Been reading all the comments and the developer's responses and thinking.  I have to say that a front and rear traditional cap with a label on the front cap works well for me.  But, there are times when I bring along an extra lens or use a smaller bag where two lenses are in the same "compartment."  Presently, I use a piece of foam or an extra divider (bet we all have them left over from re-arranging bags) or wrap a lens in a lens sack or use a beer cozy to create a layer between these lenses. 

Another scenario is to use this (if it is more protective) instead of a beer cozy and an old sock that I might use for a 70-200 in a briefcase or small bag.

I can see using this product instead of a divider that I might need to "unvelcro" to get to the lens below.  I don't think this device is the every lens / every day answer for me but can see a place in my kit.
