There are some things that I wish for in life. And they are collected here.
I'd rather wait and see to get an upgraded version of the 1DX. This body is incredible, but the 20MP? I'd love to see a new version with at least 30MP and Full-HD 120 FPS video with Sound (and 120FPS in 4K - if you must that'd be OK without sound)! Then I would instantly make this my main video shooting body. This camera is intense. It's heavy, it's fast, it's an incredible piece of equipment, and it's made for professionals. She produces stunning video and photos alike.
This will be my stepping stone towards the bigger 1D bodies. The flip out screen will make it so such a breeze to vlog with. It's a full frame body so it is in little ways worse than the 1DX. A perfect stepping stone and backup body!
I keep hearing the most beautiful things about this lens. A macro with 100mm? Detail shots for videos, landscape shots where it's more pulled in and compressed. Portraits with little to no distortion. Yes, I'm sold. In addition, I am pretty sure that I would not buy the 70-200 if I have this in my backpack since the 70-200 is much heavier and I am not sure if I would ever use it.
Over the years I noticed again and again that this is my area of shooting on full frame. It's a beautiful range for landscape captures as well as video (vlog and otherwise). And for shallower depth of field, I would always stay away from the 4.0 versions of these lenses.
A beautiful lens for all kinds of work, but I fear that it will take the back seat in comparison to the 100mm macro for my work.
I have this lens with the Canon mount and the adapter MC-11 made by Sigma as well. I love this lens. It's incredibly sharp and has an amazing bokeh as well as shallow depth of field. Just lovely.
Stabilization with for the Frame.
With the higher storage needs of the 4K 60FPS and the more video I produce, the storage is an interesting subject. I would love to test this against the Samsung T5 drive that I own - it looks very promising. Especially that this box has 4TB of SSD storage and can do it in a RAID-0 meaning mirroring the data and almost doubling the read/write speeds. That'd be crazy good!
This is the old version of this project. They have version 2.0 on Kickstarter right now and I backed them immediately. Being able to shoot raw photos and high res video on the camera of my choice and then immediately being able to edit all that on the go with my phone and share to Instagram and similar is one of the main reasons for this device to exists (next to being an incredible backup device for on the go). I can't wait to hold version 2.0 in my hands.
I am currently using the 500GB version of this and I am in love with it. I would probably upgrade to the 2TB version as soon as I upgrade my gear - but there is a contender in the ring. The Glyph Atom RAID 4TB SSD looks super promising and I might have to test both.
The best iPhone/Mobile lenses on the market for sure. And I'd love to have them all.
