Steve,

interesting. For similar reasoning I went with the Fuji X100S which gets superb reviews. Small & unobtrusive. One thing I'm finding is that going from the DSLR to the range finder / Leica style camera takes a bit of getting used to. The 35mm EFL is forcing me to look more at composition and where I position myself for a shot.
I decided against the M4/3 format as I didn't want to have 2 bags full of lenses.

Mark


Yeah, but they're small lenses...

HI Paul,

Yup, just rumors. There's a pretty credible vibe from sources unnamed that the D4X will be released sometime in early 2014. Doesn't look like the sensor will be any larger than the D800, but who knows at this point. I'm kind of holding off on any major glass updates until it becomes clear which manufacturer is going to be serious about large sensors and quicker buffers. I'd put my money on Nikon though.

Jim, after 3858 pages I didnt think it would be possible to shoot a new aspect of any aircraft flying today, but you have just done it and what a shot

Hi Jim, Yes I heard all the rumors too, every thing from the same 36megs as the D800 to over 50megs. But all are saying a slow burst speed of about 6fps. Will not believed anything until Nikon comes out and says so.
Love the AV-8

I agree Paul. But, Nikon has proven a lot more true to their rumors than Canon over the past three years. If Canon does head out into the weeds chasing medium format, I'm going to be miffed because they're at least a D800 behind the power curve as it is. You know what happens when a camera company "loses focus".

I am planning to upgrade my rapidly aging Canon gear next year. Unfortunately, Canon hasn't been releasing anything for me to get excited about. (Well, there is the 1Dx and the 200-400, but nothing like the D800.) I guess I will keep reading to see what is going to happen.

Good Morning Wrei,

I'm with Ya. I think you would love the D800 for most things (slow moving to stationary), but it's not an air show camera. The !DX is an incredible camera for fast subjects, but kind of pricey if you're not making a living with it.

I've been hard on Canon, mostly for not stepping up to the plate, announcing and delivering, but the truth is, I could wrap up the next five years of my pro shooting career with exactly what I have in my cases, and be perfectly happy. I'm just one of those guys that is always looking for the next best thing that will help me produce an incrementally better product. I'm in a different situation than many photographers, and I'm thankful to The Good Lord for that, in that my equipment generally pays for itself in a matter of days/weeks, so I don't have to give upgrading much thought. Who would have thought that a $2,900,00 Nikon would have energized Zim and me to the point that it has? One can never get too comfortable with the status quo.

That said, the D800 would not have captured this shot. As I have said before, they're all just hammers, just different types of very expensive hammers.

In the end I didn't go to Dunsfold Wings and Wheels today because at 09.30 10/10ths cloud, drizzle and bad light and I just didn't believe the forecast that said it would be blue skies by 13.00 (especially as Dunsfold is only 20 miles from home)! Needless to say, a bit later than forecast, but by 14.00 it was a lovely sunny blue sky day!!!
So just did some more PP Here's the Mig taking off for the very short display it did at RIAT - lots of jello!

Heads up. If you are thinking about taking in the film "The Butler", as I was, because it seemed like one of those stories that should be told, save yourself the trouble. It's a campaign film, and apparently, after some research, bears just about no resemblance to the butler's actual life. None of the racially charged cataclysmic events in "Cecil's" life took place, complete fiction and fabrication to promote the theme of the movie. With the number of truly captivating stories about the triumph of the human spirit that exist out there, it's so sad that everything in life has to be spun these days, and the folks on whatever side swallow their own Kool Aid without using the brain God gave them. Nauseating.

Been out of pocket rubbing shoulders with an astronaut and a few other good friends. Awesome job Jim, Jo, Leo, Jeff, and Jay. As always great stuff.

Greetings everyone! I think I fell of the face of the Earth for a really long time...I think the last bookmark I had was back on page 2500 something. Not too much going on in my world.

Living and working in Orlando and shooting airplanes when I can. AirVenture was another fantastic week and it was good to see a few of you from the thread there. ISAP in Seattle was enjoyable as well.

Hopefully I will be able to improve my track record of late and keep up with the forum. It is good to be back and I want to post a few images soon.

In the past few pages that I strolled through before calling it a night....all phenomenal. I can only hope to be as skilled as the rest of you...eventually.

I followed the link Jay, and it looks like a promising product. Kind of a version of the Movi. Their website is a bit goofy, like clicking on a product and having "page not found" come up. Looks like their 3 axis is around $3,400 before you buy any peripherals. You'd be up around 5 grand in no time, but if it worked, that wouldn't be out of line. The Movi for the 1DX is 15k I think, and made out of unobtanium at the moment.

There's a big difference in the video product that can be produced, depending upon the platform. The difference between shooting from an R22 and a Bell 407 is night and day, but then so is the cost.
