Electronic level?

Let's not be unfair.

Early 5D3s had a light leak too.

If you want a camera that doesn't suffer such introductory problems buy a Nikon.

Johannes Zander: Manual focusing lens... Ok... Nice!
Now get the CaNikon to make cameras that support manual focus better!

Agree - I need reading glasses and putting them on and off to work the LCD is painful.

Not of matter of "haters" or "hateing".

LV is great if you shoot on a tripod. Most of us don't.

Hand holding a DSLR to LV doesn't interest me in a huge way although I will do it on occasion.

EVFs with focus magnification and focus assist is the modern definition of "well supported" MF.

These lenses are easier to use on a Sony than they are on a Canon.

Ask me how I know.

No - they don't support MF very well. Sony Alphas do.

DFPanno: Perhaps the IQ differential is greater when one directly views the file but I don't see anything here that I can't generate with my RX1.

As a single focal length camera I also prefer 35mm.

Incidently - People complain that the RX1's EVF is not built in but I love the fact that it swivels upward 90 degrees. I use it all the time in that position.

That said this will be a nice camera for those interested in what it offers.

True enough but I can think of a number of great tools out there that cost far less and/or allow for interchangable lenses.

This is a niche product that will appeal to a small subset. My guess is that this subset will enjoy this camera quite a bit.

In reply to:

TheEmrys: Only one lens and you would choose the Canon 35 L? Deeply disconcerting as there are at least 10 better 35mm options out there.

I don't know about ten…. The f/2 Carl Zeiss Sonnar T and the Sony FE f/1.4 (if you can get a good copy) are solid competiters.

Direct link | Posted on Aug 28, 2015 at 15:05 UTC

Disagree…..

It is easy to operate under the delusion that more people would become involved in photography if somebody did x, y, or z.

Most people don't care the way we do and the fact is they never cared the way we do.

It was just that back then a camera was the only why to capture snapshots.

Today's phones can easily produce images of a quality equal to that of the old Instamatics - why in the world would someone want to spend more or have something else to carry?

Phones are perfect for the vast majority.

The industry and its clients better get used to the idea cause that reality is here to stay.

On article Flickr brings back Pro account option (74 comments in total)
In reply to:

MeganV: The internet needs less photography-mediated-by-Marissa-Mayer and more photography-mediated-by-photographers.

I wish people weren't so intimidated by HTML <IMG> tags.

Because that's really what Flickr is, right--it's an HTML avoidance system. It lets you post photographs by learning to use Flickr instead of the <IMG> tag. It lets you share photographs with links to Flickr's domain rather than with links to *your* domain. It keeps your conversations and interactions within its walled community rather than within your e.mail box, on your messenger, or on *your* web site.

But basic HTML and <IMG> tags aren't hard! If you can use Flickr, you can whip up some tags.

True, web hosting isn't free. But you can get your own domain, comprehensive analytics, and unlimited storage for $5 - $8 / month with just about any provider you might choose. That's not much of a premium over this new Flickr "pro" arrangement.

With all that said Flickr is reasonably priced, easy to use, and has a massive community that is unmatched in size.

Utilizing Flickr does not preclude maintaining your own site if that appeals to you.

Personally it is all I really need for now.

See what happens when you are struggling with limited dynamic range?

In reply to:

DFPanno: When does it stop?

I have considered the Canon - Nikon switch several times but whenever I get close to pulling the trigger another problem surfaces.

I'd like more DR but I just don't need it that badly……..

When I do I have my Sonys.

@HowaboutRAW

No they don't - but if you would like to advance that notion be my guest.

In reply to:

oselimg: The usual numbers worshiping geek whining. Sometimes an effect we overlook or a different look in a photograph makes all the difference and make a lot of money for the artist and stand out from the crowd. If this effect isn't for you why do you feel compelled to make a comment or bash it? Someone with more imagination than you have can make a use of these lenses.

Nah; I got him pegged.
Angry and judgemental. "Hipsters", "filthy rich", etc., etc.
Class issues. Period.
