Yeah, its a 400mm f6.3 non-telephoto lens. Being f6.3 makes it only good for very bright sunlight but it is not heavy compared to telephoto lenses so I always keep it in my kit.
Ok, for that kind of Focal Length on that small Sensor, you would propably want a gun sight.
Would be kind of difficult without i guess.
Thanks for the reply.

having a gun sight on the camera makes following a target super easy!

Sounds very interesting. Can you show us what you made there?

The reflex sight is an Amazon special, not the cheapest one but it's not made for a real gun. To mount it I drilled a 1/4" hole in "gun rail" which is used for mounting hardware on to guns, and ground down a 1/4-20 screw to sit as flush as possible with the top of the rail. If the head sticks up too far the sight won't mount properly. There are kits that let you mount gun rail to a hot shoe (camera flash mount) and kits that let you mount a hot shoe to a 1/4-20 hole but the taller your mounting setup the more parallax error you will get and the less stable it will all be.

Every time I shoot the sight has to be adjusted, it moves a little while being transported but mostly it's to account for the range of distances I am shooting that day. By picking a spot midway through the field and centering on that it is pretty accurate as long as I remember to aim high for close subjects and low for distant ones. If you are going to film fast moving subjects it is worth the $30.
What Lens is That?
Looks like 400mm or so?

I think it'll not be very pratical to select a value from a menu each time you want to switch it, I much prefer to set the values once and be able to switch between them with just a click.

Fair enough! Then I would suggest the following based on all the above:

Clicking the jogwheel will switch between the following speed settings:

- Single-step
- Slow
- Normal
- Fast

The textual representation of the currently selected speed would be displayed somewhere on screen during playback such that one gets feedback on what the current setting is when pressing the button.

The % settings for each such mode would have a reasonable set of defaults based on testing, but could optionally be fine-tuned in the camera settings somewhere if one wants to have more fine-control over those speeds.

Having those textual representations will make more sense to the average user, while still being able to be fine-tuned in camera settings if desired (to whatever granularity needed).

Good way to improve it.

Got some fun with ... hey.. ink again :D
This time it's a copy of the slow mo guys Hypnotic Ink video... for testing reasons.

In Future I will be shooting in RAW, hoping that I can get way better colors and contrast a.s.o.

It was an overcast day and I forgot to do a black cal after the camera had warmed up but having a gun sight on the camera makes following a target super easy! Blue-jays, vultures and a coyote.

Video of the wb maybe bug, after video I got a better wb off of the rocketbox of my car, but it is a bit rediculous
Loving everything but this should be improved as it seems to work worse than last version
