2.0 out of 5 stars weird result..loss of "the shadow" or blacks, November 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I used it with a Nikon d7000 coupled with a carl zeiss 24/70 f2,8 which is a superb pro lens.
I shot sport actions mostly kitersurfing
...but when i looked at the pictures on the computer, using a vectroscope..purely and simply the pictures was rinsed and white and all blacks "shadows" were nearly inexisting
It is not a question of overexposure but purely a loss of the "shadows".. the so called "Blacks"
I crushed down the "blacks " with the software and picture becomes good to very good.
It seems this adaptor miss the blacks and overthrow the whites
The issue too is that you don't have a single idea in which aperture you are shooting. I put the aperture ring in the middle not to take much risks...going more wide open make everything "white" even if your dslr say the aperture is fine
looking well in details the aperture mechanism is very "clunky" and could be a source of unstable aperture or the source of a light entrance who false all the aperture process.
Has anyone have the same issue with an alpha lens?

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware: no aperture control but a real wonder, October 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
beware: with NEX camera like NEX FS700 your aperture will be by a fixed aperture by default at F3,5. or the minimum superior aperture the lens permit.
you will be not able to control aperture from the camera either from the adaptor
you should play with shutter speed and it seems OK with mirrorless technology.

Nevertheless if you have to shoot sport even at a large distance with télé lens the phase detection technology is a wonder and will keep the autofocus all along the shoot.
I would give 2 stars for the F3.5 issue but i need to give 5 stars for the final résult.

5.0 out of 5 stars remarks.."house of cards", July 4, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Boss: Season 2 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
About house of cards I agree with everybody. this is a superb serie. thrilling exciting etc..
but i have difficulties to understand in terms of subject and acting why Boss has been discontinued...???
Boss and house of card are pretty close.
If boss cannot fit the audience....by the subject..what about house of cards...
I would be tempted to say Boss is more intense and more powerful

5.0 out of 5 stars reviews are too severe, January 30, 2013
Not every tastes are the same..but i have to say the negative review here are going a bit too far.
You like it or not it is différent. trashing this product becomes another story.
first the comfort is amazing and you feel the built quality .that 's a piece of equipment.
I made a very long test at the apple store with my own iPod , no equalizer, no sound correction etc...
The beats exécutuve have been the only one to be able to reproduce the sub bass from a progressive rock tunes i used for the test.
The tunes is from Mindgames the track is "both side of the show" the final of this song is breathtaking.
You will say Beats are too heavy on bass and that's bad...yes but when the coloration in sub bass give all the "feel' of the tune, so if this is missing..you miss everything...
That was happened to all the others Headphones I tested. they missed nearly everything.
For noise reduction the bose quiet comfort is superior but the sound is totaly flat and the excitement is barely average.

3.0 out of 5 stars bad picture quality too, December 27, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
the movie is ok..you like it or not...i want to say that the picture quality is very grainy and far to be the best i've seen on blu ray.
In those conditions don't spent much for blu ray and go SD dvd..my opinion.

If you loved the first one this is for sure not going to disapoint you.I would say there is more "sex" in this prequel.
Have fun and enjoy it.

I want to point out the video and the audio transfer of this Blu ray movie are fantastic.
As for the movie itself it is very entertaining and it is a nice pop corn family movie

3.0 out of 5 stars very far away from "Kingdom of heaven', July 27, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
it is an "ok" movie, made with little budget.so don't expect too much for the final result and for sure it is nothing to be compared to "kingdom of Heaven"
