That’s me pledged for the capture v3. I vowed never to use Kickstarter again but trust PD so made the exception

I should get it as well. I have been holding off on getting their capture plate.

I stop using PD Capture

For many years that I'm using a neck strap sometimes i forget i have no strap and almost drop my camera. i got so used to just drop the camera after using.

also with neck strap, it's easy to change lenses on the go. remove the lens, drop the camera. with both your hands free it's easier for me to put one lens back to your bag and pickup the other lens and mount it to your camera.

but the new smaller design is good though.

Also noticed that they got rid of that plate lock screw. I HATE that thing as it always turns on its own and I end up not being able to mount the clip. It looks ridiculous when you're struggling to mount your cam hah.

Straps add too much tangly bulk to the cam, so I tend to not like them. Of course there are times when you absolutely need to just drop your camera to do things like pose subjects and straps are handy. This is why I like the peak design straps, since I can take them on and off easily...but when I do use sling straps, I still use the capture to stabilize the camera when I'm moving around. Sling straps let the camera swing around too much and I've banged my camera into things a few times too many.

With the camera attached to the clip in your bag strap can you not just remove a lens and still have two hands free?

Good point about not dropping the cam! I’ve almost done that before switching from neck strap to no strap

Tried for a sunset / final milky way shoot for the year last night at Piha. Clouded over at the Gap just as the core came out, but got a couple of shots.
Caught some bioluminescence in the water too.

Also stopped off on the way home at a lookout on Scenic Drive for a nice pano of Auckland City at night

The big rock in the background is called Lion Rock. It really does look like a massive lion sitting down.

I gave the FE 16-35 GM a good workout today shooting a commercial building for a few hours. We will see how well it performed. Having a zoom at this range was so helpful. I mostly used 16, 18, and 20mm but also used 28mm and 35mm on occasion. I also used my CV12mm for two exterior shots since the light was nicer today than yesterday.

So good to hear - looking forward to learning what you think of the images you captured with it at all those focal lengths.

good points on PK design sling strap + Capture. I might change my stand on this. :)

Yep will do. At 16mm as seen in the camera, I could see some distortion on the interior shots. Lightroom profile should take care of it since I tested it on some shot interior shots in my home a few days ago.

I know some of you use Peak Design gear, so I'll just post it here. I'm not a fan of kickstarter anymore, but it's Peak Design and I trust this seller. I just ordered the Capture V3. :)

Tempted but they have made more money off of me for screws than off the actual items. I swear I lose parts every trip.

I am loving the A9 and really loving the A9 / A7r2 combo. I ended up pulling out the 55mm more than ever and really loved having the 10mm and 21 on each body switching back and forth when needed.... letting the A7r2 sit on the tripod getting the detail and letting the A9 use its great ISO depth to be handheld. Feeling better about the kit although the 90 macro is now sitting in the bag a lot not sure but maybe I need to dump it.

ohhh! I'm heading there in 2 weeks. Is this by any chance Horse Point? If not, can you tell me where this is? I'll hit up during my road trip.


Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.

Does anyone have a NAS that isn't ridiculously slow when trying to access something like a huge dump of RAW files?

I've reconfigured my network at home and now have a double redundancy of everything and a double redundancy of this 1TB SSD that I'm using as my "current" drive. The problem is that the NAS drives are really slow...and I'm on a wired connection. My house is cat5e wired.

Did you have to do anything to the yellow and green channel Vinz? Asking because in photoshop, the green and yellow channels go nuts in that type of lighting and I have to fix it in HSL
