    Nikon Announces the D7500 DSLR

    From a video point of view, the capacity to handle 4K usually means you can get faster frame rates on 1080, which may be useful for some, but even though I rarely output 4K, 4K downscaled to 1080 kicks the pants clean off in camera 1080.. so even if your output is still all 1080 (and theres no...

    Nikon Announces the D7500 DSLR

    I know most on here won't care, but it has 4K video. Come on Canon. You're missing out on the party. What amateur / low level pro-video business Panasonic haven't already snaffled Nikon are sniffing around.

    Are you my customer? Many years ago when I worked in camera retail I got on fine with customers. I didn't patronise, didn't molly coddle, didn't blow smoke up their assess. I was direct and honest. And had plenty of repeat customers who valued that. Now I run my own creative business a...

    Sorry to hear you use AF for Macro. Yeah, my Doctor said it's something to do with keeping certain kinds of company.

    You misrepresent. Again. Again, again, again. It's the rebel end of the market. Rebels have never had afma. There are other things to get right first. Congratulations on your afma experience. I know it's vital when you photograph so many flight cases. Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap.

    Video Recovery from a Formatted Card

    yep. It has it's issues. You are dealing with files which have VBR, have spatial and temporal compression. Short of moving to a spatial only compression such as APR or DnX via an external recorder there are limited options. Just keeps your card regularly overwrite formatted, and back up...

    Video Recovery from a Formatted Card

    THe trouble is that memory cards erase the head of the file, which is where the streaming info is on video files. You can restore almost all the raw data, except the essential bit of how to rebuild it (because of VBR, and long GOP streams it isn't predictable) I've had partial success...

    motorised sliders

    Thanks for thoughts. I ended up getting a steal of a deal on a manfrotto slider, which at least solves half my problem. Looking at Syrp and other post options. Will let you know how it goes.

    haha, afma is like fourth or fifth thing down the list if you are doing it right.... Oh my shots not in focus... it must be afma... More like.. Your technique Your settings AF lock and recompose focus shift Must be afma though, has to be, got to be. Not saying it's never afma. Just that...

    Panasonic g7 or G80 with speedbooster. Better MTFs (optical reduction rather than a crop) and extra stop of light, and you can use your EF glass whenever Canon get round to a budget 4K EF mount camera. The combination of the optical reduction and the 4K-1080 downsampling in post means that my...

    Were you really expecting XLR inputs and a grab handle on the new rebel? Greedy bastards might also be people who wan't the quality, usability and design of a £3k camera but don't want to pay £3k for it. My last ENG camera was £20k. And it wasn't 4K either. So I have to laugh when folk bitch...

    Where have Canon committed genocide? Just asking because my definition of 'Nazi' is very specific. Are you confusing not getting a feature you wanted on a consumer electronic item with the gassing of 6 million men women and children?

    What were your first Canons? Analog and or digital?

    The first camera I had the use of was my Dads Canon FTQL. Then my Sister got an EOS 1000FN which I had access to (and so I could teach her how to work it) When I started working in a camera shop as a student I was able to pick up 2nd hand gear cheap, and went through a 5 (A2e) a 50e, a 3, a...
