Thanks Jan Arie, I like it too! Stew Dawson told once told me, when I was putting the finishing touches on my biplane and agonizing over a couple of expensive finishing touches, "James, now is not the time to show weakness!" This morning as I was going through my Texas Media wish list, and my knees were beginning to buckle, I thought of Stewart and decided that my wish list was the minimum equipment required to launch this project, so I just told them to pack it all up. Sony QXD memory cards write faster than any aftermarket non OEM memory, with greater reliability and one 128 GB XQD allows about 40 minutes of 4K capture. I figure when real production begins, I'll want six in inventory, but I thought two would be fine to get me rolling. Sony batteries are great, but the Anton Bauer industry standard batteries are bullet proof and drop right into the Sony XDCA Extension unit that attaches to the back of the camera allowing gem-lock data and more importantly, enabling true full 4K capture within the camera, and 4K RAW capture in 4:4:4 color space with an external recorder like The Shogun (when Atomos really has it ready for prime time) Using the Anton Bauer V90 new battery technology allows 3+ hours per battery given average record/standby ratios, pretty darn good. Apparently from the reviews, a side benefit of the Sony extension unit is a better balanced camera for handheld shooting.

My mission starting tomorrow will be to make that Sony system a part of my hand, like my still gear. No easy task, this stuff is complex beyond imagination, but I know a lot more than I did six months ago when this began and I expect to continue to climb that curve. I'm excited with the opportunities and possibilities. None of this means RED is out of the running, but from what I've been told, shot correctly, this system is it's match.

Should we start a "4K Air to Air"?

George Lepp reviewed the Canon 5D SR and he feels the DR is similar to the 7D MKII. I don't own the MKII, but I would guess it's DR is visibly less than that of our D810 cameras. Kind of what we expected given the fact that the sensor is not new, just larger. He liked it, but then as any Explorer of Light will candidly admit, that had better be one's reaction.

I remember one un-named EofL chomping at the bit to shoot a few frames at the D800 introduction a few years back, but passing on the opportunity on the off chance someone might grab an iPhone capture of the event, rendering him/her an EX "EofL" I realized at that moment that I was pretty content being an independent explorer of whatever shoots my stuff best.

Q. Will a Mac be able to read an external HDD that has been hooked up to a Windows PC?
The drive is in NTFS format?

Not sure I understand your question Mark, but in 2012 I used my 2011 MBP to transfer my photos from a Windows formatted HDD to an Apple HDD.

Ray,

I have a Windows PC that has all my photos on an NTFS format external HDD.
I basically want to know if I can take the drive and connect it straight to a Mac and be able to read my photos.

It should work, Mark. On a Mac, an NTFS disk will be read-only: for full compatibility, you'd need FAT32 or exFAT.

Thanks Mark :-)

And yes, I just asked Guru Alan about the NTFS thing, and what Steve says is correct; read only.

Thanks Steve & Jo,

Pulled the trigger on the 11-24.
My local camera store had one in stock and I can see a lot of use for it later in the year when I go to Japan.

I'm still interested in the iMAC 5k, but will need to leave that till later in the year or next year.

Up close and personal with a 777, I think the grass in the foreground ads to the image...thoughts?

The 1Dx and 600mm in action capturing one of the wildest crashes you will ever see.

Mark clearly showed why he is one of the best in the business capturing this.

In my humble opinion, the best looking factory stock hood ornament on the planet. This one was adorning a 1951 Pontiac Chieftain. I photographed this bad boy at the weekly Pavillions car show in Scottsdale.

Amazing series of photos Tim.
I used to follow Mark Rebilas work when he posted on the sports forum here. At that time he shot Nikon.

I would crop to the runway and have it that the markings were all parallel to the bottom of the frame.

Holy cow, that is some crash!

Steve I like your up close and personal. Something about the angle makes it look like just a big little plane, you can imagine seeing a Cub at the same angle on a grass strip...

Mark, enjoy your new lens :-)
