    My vote is for selling your Sony 18-105. Your new lens will be the most immediate replacement for the 18-105. Only way the 18-105 would be better is in size/weight.

    I sold my 18-105 a long, long...

    I think the most common issue people will run across is when they're filming someone outdoors with a shiny, bald head. :)

    The ability to drop highlights on a patch of shiny skin and have something...

    The retailers aren't able to keep them in stock, it seems. That's a good indication of sales. I spoke with Wooden Camera yesterday and they told me the FX9 is much more popular than they anticipated....

    Hot dog. Scored a zero.

    Also would like to say cyvideo scores MVP of the day for that post with all the color/retina info. Maybe the most valuable post in this entire thread.

    That's where I'm at right now with the FX9. I wanted to fully familiarize myself with the camera before using it on any paid work so have been running around with it shooting a variety of things. I...

    If those videos had been shot on the same day in similar conditions they'd be a little more helpful too.

    I don't own the Shape but I discovered today that my Swit 93 w/ D-Tap on top of the battery is far enough inside the cavern of the FX9 that I can't use the D-Tap. I was also interested in the Shape...

    The FX9 also has an AF setting called "face only" that leaves the lens focused on the last place it saw a face. It's very handy for when people turn their head or go behind a pole and you don't want...

    Same experience with my Kastar batteries. And my Swits. The number of minutes left was inaccurate. Technically the batteries work since they're powering the camera, but the amount of time left is a...

    I've never gone the V-Lock route. Always BPU. IMO the primary benefit would be throwing more weight toward the back of the camera to counter balance heavier lenses on the front.

    The color testing these guys did on the FX9 is really impressive.

    I saw that thread. A Sony employee chimed in and said the only discounted package was for students. I'm wondering if that guy's friend is a student.

    Alister Chapman said this lens works like native Sony glass on the FX9. The A7iii groups go crazy over this Tamron lens. I imagine it'll be a popular one for the FX9 AF crowd as well.

    Official Sony BP-U batteries will absolutely power your FS5. The U90 will power it for an entire day, likely. Maybe more depending upon your shooting style.

    I'd think a Sony mirrorless with one of the newer sensors and AF would be a much better B Cam than the A7sii. The color would be easier to match with the newer sensor.

    This light intrigues the hell out of me. I own a 100-C and a 200-C. Got the fresnel attachment and a couple of pars. I mostly use the 200-C with a Westcott Rapid Box beauty dish as a key light for...
