    Here you go, the stabilization is awesome. YouTube compression is too much, I tried different bitrates, but the video quality is still not as good as the original footage. For 1080p 60fps YouTube restricts the bitrate at 12Mbps and the original footage is 30Mbps.

    @kaz stabilisation is really good...video has no jerks at all :)

    I bought a CPL for my 35mm. I already had a CPL for my 17-50 but now that I use 35mm almost 90% time when not shooting birds or insects, I needed one.

    Hello Friends,

    Posting after long time, though I have been watching this and photography thread regularly. I'm using same camera equipment's; haven't upgraded or bought new lenses.

    One of my lens Nikon AF-S 35mm F1.8G had developed fungus inside rear element. One half centimeter and another of a mm dia and they kept increasing. First I checked with Nikon pickup center and they said the lens need to be sent to main service center and they will quote after checking the condition. It will take a week or two and if I refuse to repair then atleast I must pay for shipping cost.

    Then I checked with 3rd party camera/lens repair center which is 38 years old. Shop owner is retired now so his son does the repair jobs. Both of them checked the lens and quoted around Rs. 700-800. They seemed reasonable and reliable so anyway handed over the lens yesterday and gave Rs 500 advance. Today I got the lens back and fungus is totally removed without any noticeable traces of repair. Lens works fine and I'm happy that my favorite lens has recovered from cancer!

    I always keep active silica gel with my lenses and hydrometer to keep track of humidity. Still fungus developed in this lens for the second time (First was on front element and I cleaned it myself). All other three lenses and camera don't have any fungus.

    BTW; I'm getting Nikon Trendy Cap from Nikon School website. If you have several Nikon cameras and lenses, register in Nikon School website and add your camera equipment's with serial no. You'll get reward points and exchange them for goodies. Cap costs 200 points, Shirt 700 and so on.

    Thats it for now. :)

    Thanks...
    Best Regards

    Yep and on which element its present. Its easy to remove and clean front and rear elements but inner ones are tricky.

    Update: Today I got the Nikon Trendy Cap and its awesome. Design is different then shown in picture but still I like this yellow color accent and quality is also good.

    It seems that people are more excited about the fact that the A7III is going to get intervalometer like the new camera. The eye autofocus for animals and the advanced Ai eye autofocus are also cool things to have. They have also improved how can you transfer to mobile and how the new app system works.

    The flip lens is still not as cool as the nikon swivel lenses but it seems like its atleast some improvement. Not sure why sony does not just copy that screen design (might be patented)

    It shows the extent to which the casual shooters have been propping up the camera market. Serious shooters can soon expect to pay a lot more for their gear, or the manufacturers will have to settle for lower profits, with consequent slowdown in innovation, or find new ways to monetise.

    This has also been evident in the price difference of starter to pro camera's and lenses. Expect this group to move to better mobile phones and pro level camera"s to get expensive

    Even i am begining to like the rx10v4 more then full frames...now that mobiles have already eaten up the p&s market in quality and features..i too feel i will not move to full frame unless some truly amazing technology comes up. Till then i am covered.

    Also explains the trend that a lot more if the serious features are moving to mobile, face detect, raw files, timelapse, hyperlapse so most point and shoot camera's don't stand a chance anyhow. It becomes a case where only the most finicky users will move up to a full frame or APSC type setup and the others will have those features in their phones at all times
