luben solev: When will we get someone like Yongnou produce an equivalent to the Pixelstick (http://www.thepixelstick.com/)?
I would expect that has a patent. it certainly looks patentable. so 18 years
evogt500: I have seen police use something similar to direct traffic.
The strip light is the most compact design that can produce soft lighting
I love the look. I had a ricoh GR that I used constantly. loved that camera id still have it if it wasnt stolen. I like the look here better and the physical controls. But i must say I bought a LX100 to replace the GR and between the zoom lens the evf the ability to get to a portrait focal length lens (i mean 70mm is little short but it works) it probably gets shallower dof too. I mean its a downgrade in lowlight, but not by much. its a downgrade from how far i can stretch the images in processing. and the aps c 16 mp sensor and cracking sharp prime lens probably would make better enlargements. but i guess my point is that newer cameras like the lx just make more sense. they are more versatile. they dont cost anymore.
also it seems to me something like this is all about size. Ricoh got a camera that was truly pocketable to have the same specs. not sure this is going to match that. love to see one in person
love the retro style though
they did not make the items public domain they made items already in the public domain avaibable
mostlyboringphotog: Where is the equivalent aperture graph?
its extremely helpful especailly when looking at small cameras like this. Destructive to photography??? your an idiot
DesmondD: People taking photos for a living should be able to get their settings close enough for decent jpegs anyway. Too many people [not all who shoot RAW but still many] use RAW as a crutch for bad technique.It has its benefits but if your settings are so bad you can't salvage a jpeg for a newspaper then you're in the wrong job.
also cameras see with massively more contrast than the human eye does. a lot of the raw adjustment people are doing is making the image appear less contrasty in mixed lighting situations to greater reflect they way that the eye sees
the reason this annoys people who take photos for a living is not because they can't his the exposure but because now they have to have a separate workflow just to take care of these guys now
kind of annoying because now you have to shoot raw + jpeg if you have any thought that you may want to submit an image reuters. you will also have to establish a different work flow for the images submitted to them.
fatdeeman: Hmm I bought something very similar to this on ebay for about £10 a few years back it used halogen GU10 spotlights. I just swapped the bulbs for LED equivalents that cost about £3 each. It hasn't let me down once. The halogens can be put back in at any point for better quality of light. The LED's allow for unlimited operation without heat problems.
This would have to be pretty special to justify the expense!
no he implied it h separate spotlights
you guys its for shooting table top work. and the reason it is uniques is the lighting is built in
what makes this uniques that it is portable and has the light integrated
Carlos Loff: 450mm = 45cm - Another box, lol - Where is the studio ? Or was it a mistake and it´s 4.500mm = 4,5 meters ???
its for table top work not for shooting people you idiot
Kodachrome200: if you took the lens and sensor of something like the rx100 or the ricoh gr you might have something intresting if not bulkier if it snapped to an iphone. the problem with this is that the iphone 6 is amost a hilariously good camera already. either step it up to aps-c or offer a zoom lens. a 1 inch sensor fixed lens camera is going to only be marginally better than the built in camera
I'm just curious what makes me an idiot. thinking the iPhone 6 is a great camera or because i want something more similar to the lens sensor combination of the rx 100. the first is true and the second would surely be preferable

Hugo808: What's the EQV focal length on micro 4/3s?
it doesn't matter crop factors like that are based on 35mm equiv. the lens is 2450 on EVERY camera the 4900 mm is merely a 35mm equivalent for m/43
he creative cloud 9.99 deal is great. i honestly prefer it to the old way
The prize is not a camera the prize is you are loaned a camera and you produce images for hasselblad that i am sure the fine print says they can do as they please with. So the prize is you work for free for hasselbald.
Kodachrome200: People still use filters?
Polarising i can do more precisely in post. Grad nd i can do in post. Slowing the shutter speed down i need an filter but seriously how often does this come up?
People still use filters?
damn at that price if its any good its gonna be a huge success
