iPhone 6 can do 1080/60p!

I've had this phone for nearly a year and didn't know it could do 60 fps in 1080. LOL, I didn't even know it was an option because Apple buried it in settings. This is how you enable it.

Montour Trail- National Tunnel in Cecil Township, PA

Above is the result of a 5-stop pull in ACR! It's amazing that there was this much data in the shadows.

The top frame are my standard ACR settings, which are pretty much what you'd get SOOC. The bottom shows the settings for the pull. Still this isn't as good as a real HDR image but I think it's fine for low-rez instagram or web stuff.

Nikon D610 + 18-55mm VR II FX Mode

Here is a test of my D610 plus 18-55mm VR II in FX mode. It's easy to see that the corners are not great at or around 24mm. BUT it's not completely unserviceable... like who cares about the crap in the corners of the frame anyway. I took this combo with me short bicycling trip. This is the first time I've taken a DSLR with me on such a ride as they are too clunky and I am far more interested in cycling than landscape photography.

Anyway here is Fall on the Montour Trail.

100 mbps out of a Nikon DSLR!

Trying the 64 mbps hacked firmware on my D5200 and made the following observation-

93mbps peak bit rate! Incredible.
Recording duration is approximately 8.5 minutes and the camera wrote a 3.99 GB file.
HDMI Timeout is now disabled.
During the brick wall test I was NOT able to produce moire! *LOVE THIS*
