On Connect post DxOMark Mobile report: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ (16 comments in total)

The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge can either have Sony or Samsung sensors.

My S6 has a Sony sensor and my girlfriend's a Samsung sensor.

What is the sensor tested in this test ?

There is a manipulation on the phone to find out.

Well, as anyway the lens is protruding, Sony should make a grip, and put a bigger battery in it (or 2 batteries to keep compatibility), it will fit a jacket pocket anyway.

On article A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601) (1492 comments in total)
In reply to:

METROMODEPHOTO: First of all it's a Leica SLR and not canon or Nikon. Leica is a minimalist company and not like Japanese manufacturers who fill their cameras with tons of bells and wistles. Being that said the design is topical Leica style, believe me if one was given to you I'm sure no one would hesitate to have one. I like its classic design and its tipicsl theme and Leica style design. My real concern is, would it really take better picture than a Nikon D810 or a canon 5ds which I'm in the market for".

It's not a SLR !

Earth Art: Who is actually buying Leica cameras? I've only seen one being used in person back in the 90s when they had a pretty good SLR system. Are they staying afloat with their other optics divisions or what?

Are they only popular in Europe for the same market of people who buy absurdly expensive cars?

Here's in the USA, I have never seen a single digital Leica out in real use.

Even Steve Huff prefers Sony now, that tells a lot.

User9362470513: Seriously, is this a joke? $10,000 for a mirrorless camera that's bigger and heavier than a medium format camera and is one of the ugliest beasts to be made in years?

I know everyone bands on about the cost of Leicas and I have no problem with charging a premium for their cameras given the build quality, images, heritage, lenses, kudos etc. And their cameras are generally small and practical.

But this is pathetic. Why would n't you get a D810 or a 5DS? You'd probably get better image quality, have a ton of change and you wouldn't have a hernia. Or get a Pentax MF? Or basically anything else.

A fool and their money are easily parted as they say.

You just don't get it... you NEED the last Leica to brag when you go yachting with your friends !

In reply to:

Ednaz: I completely do not understand this. Kind of indifferent lens offerings for starters, huge and heavy body, middle of the road sensor characteristics. Even if it was priced like other FF cameras, even like the top of the line FF cameras - everything else about it is a head-scratcher.

Especially as Leica is not known for zooms...
I'm really puzzled myself !

If you have a small p*nis and tons of cash, you need to buy the camera and the 90–280 mm, I'm sure you'll feel better :D

captura: How come no E-mount version? People don't want an unreliable EF to E-mount adapter for such a fine lens. Is the full-frame A7 Sony line not suitably proven, by now?

Actually Metabones provide Canon adapters with autofocus.
And Nikon AF adapters will be released soon !

In reply to:

raztec: Thanks for the article and explaining your technique.

Personally, I find the blown central highlight too large and distracting to enjoy the rest of the photograph as much as I would otherwise.

I don't agree with you, this blown out area gives impact to the image for me !

@RichRMA There is no glass in nearly all adapters, it's just for the SpeedBoosters to use FF lenses on APS-C or m43.

Blackubuntu: Too late.... After going thru numerous epson printers, from the 1280, 1400, an 850, and a 24" 7500. All with ink clogging issues, I've settled on Canons pro 100 and pro 10. Never have issues with ink clogging now. With canon offering these printers in bundles, people put them up on Craigslist for about a hundred bucks with the 50 sheets of 13x19 paper. So I can get ink, paper, and a print head spare for that price. And with Costco's print prices, I'm a happy camper. Sorry epson, I gave you so many chances...

The PRO-100S is dye based, the PRO-10S is pigment based.

I own both, and I can tell you that pigment inks print MUCH better even on plain paper ! Much more intense colors, dye inks look washed out.

I installed a CISS in my Canon MG7150 (look in my gallery), and bought ink from China at 5 USD per LITER, yes 5 USD per LITER and it works perfectly !

I can tell you that the Chinese ink is as good as OEM, and guess where the OEM ink is manufactured anyway ?

RichRMA: If they're going to round numbers, why not say 8 times and 2 times as strong instead of 800% and 200%?

I guess that 800% seems more impressive than just 8.

nathantw: Actually looks good. Thanks for the samples. One tip, though, 85mm is good for closeup portraits and the 24mm isn't.

Well, maybe Rishi Sanyal's models have very small noses, and he needs a close shot with a 24mm lens to balance it !
