I think the V has an LED indicator for the green vs advance mode.

the advance mode button on the IV is a focus hold button. Awkward placement makes it fairly unsuable IMO, I can never find it :-P

Oh does that little button you hold when toggling advanced mode work as a focus hold button? Yeah really awkward placement.

Yeah the iv is able to receive firmware updates so the functionality is large the same other than things like smooth iris... But that's more of a video function

Awesome, thanks!

So a nice thing when shooting fast primes on the a7riii is that the af-c toggle can now be mapped to a custom button. I mapped it to c3. So if I'm shooting the Sigma 135, I can quickly toggle to a 200mm f2.8 equivalent FOV/DOF. This mitigates a lot of the need for f2.8 zooms.

Edit... Technically this mean I don't really need a 135mm prime, as the 85gm wide open will create the same look in apsc mode.

got the new peak products. first time having something from peak design and I must say design and quality is top. i love their packaging too.

i got the triple item package from the kick starter which includes the capture 3, pad, and slide lite. i think I will get the leash also. didn't think the slide lite would be too wide. me using them is a different story :rolleyes:

thanks joon for the notice on the kickstarter.

Nice, congrats! I haven't received mine yet, but I did receive my new PD Everyday Sling 5L in ash. It was on sale for $85 during BF at BH, and I bought it to take with me on short bike rides and etc.. Quality wise, it's the same as my PD ED backpack 20L in ash.

Cool shot indeed. The geometry in the ceiling is off a bit. You can use DxO Viewpoint to correct the perspective.

Thanks for the tip! Do you know if it works with iPad software, currently editing all my pics on iPad. MacBook Pro is on the list for needs!

I don’t think Viewpoint will work on an iPad. It’s a plug-in for Lightroom.

You sure about that? The skylight appears sloped to me, which would be expected for a glass roof.

I think the skylight(?) is actually higher on the right side which gives it that distorted look. I tried to correct it by first selecting the skylight and copying to a new layer then using the Free Transform tool in perspective mode, adjusted the right side to square off the skylight. I used two horizontal guidelines to help with that.

This was done using PS CC 2018 by the way.

Awesome photo, regardless.

The more I look at the more I tend to agree with you. The other lines along the sides are parallel so that’s another clue that the glass roof does slope down.
