In Topic: Relative low light and video capabilities of Nikon Cameras

Hi Tom,


If you want the best low light, high iso camera ever made by anybody I'd buy some variant of Sony A7S.


If you care about in camera UHD recording and in body image stabilization, buy this one:



and if you don't, buy this one:



and one of these if you want to use your Nikon lenses (you'll set aperture on the adaptor)


In Topic: Tokina 10-17 overexposed at 10mm

I'd suggest getting the lens serviced.  My guess is that there is something mechanically wrong with the lens, or there is oil on the aperture blades, that is preventing them from closing during exposure.


You can test this further with DOF preview.

In Topic: S6 subtronic bulkhead on Nauticam D7000 housing - advice needed

1- No, at least not from Nauticam


2- No.


3- To be safe, you should get this from Subtronic.  There isn't any standard here, and I don't know that the manufacturers that have employed S6 on Nikon are even consistent in the pin outs.


4- Not really...

In Topic: New Panasonic GX8

G7 has indeed been cancelled.  The issue, as speculated here, is the front - back depth of the hand grip.  The thick grip would have moved the N85 Port mount forward, affecting compatibility with all of the micro four thirds lenses supported, and necessitating a port system dedicated to the G7 housing.  


GX8 is no problem, and that high priority design is moving forward.
