    Last September you kindly responded to my questions about the video heads you use, advising the use of Arca-Swiss plates. I recently came across a review of a device that adapts Sachtler FSB mounts to Arca-Swiss: https://www.cined.com/sachtler-fsb-6-8-10-tripod-arca-swiss-mod-review/ Thought this might be of some interest to you Dan.

    Daniel, In spite of periodic doubts I see no reason to drop my m4.3 kit. Especially now that Lightroom/ACR has the remarkable one click Enhance feature which doubles the number of pixels on each side, or 4 times overall. Heavily cropped images are now very effectively printed in large sizes.…

  • Denis RT says:

    The problem with Sony cameras (at least older models) is that they are gathering dust. Especially when recording video it is very annoying. When shooting wildlife i enjoy more my Lumix G9 although DFD drives me nuts sometimes. I still use my Canon 5d ii but not for wildlife btw.

  • Noise Reduction Software Comparison-Updated

    Who can benefit? Noise reduction software is essential no matter what camera you’re shooting. It’s especially helpful for those of us who’ve ditched the full-frame monsters of the past and adopted the smaller, lighter, more mobile Micro Four Thirds (MFT) cameras. Even though smaller sensor cameras benefit most from quality…
