A welcome upgrade which demonstrates the gap between original engineering math and photographer field experience.

Will be interesting to see how this develops.

CC member here, but still using PS5 for cropping because it allows setting both size and dpi in one move. CC does not allow that. CC broke the crop tool. "Classic" crop mode does not solve this.

Innovative products don't need special marketing initiatives.

Improbable, but not impossible, Canon releases a 35mm film camera?

It's simple. Canon and Nikon users should pay a high premium because they're the pros. Sony, Olympus shooters should get in free because professionals don't use those cameras.

Rick Knepper: Last thing I want is a commercial photographer and his entourage hogging up space at overlooks and other viewpoints and blocking trails. Besides, the permit is a formality. I see very few requests for permits being denied if any. What I don't like are commercial photo workshop operators and their customers. Many are respectful of non-workshop shooters but some are downright rude. And they suck up permits to places like the Wave while individuals go wanting.

There are many people who would never enjoy the beauty of the parks were it not for some degree of commercial enterprise... What you term as exploitation, may be simple commercial enterprise. That's not necessarily a bad thing.

"Of course the origin of A and E mounts might seem different from a customer’s point of view..."

And from a reality point of view.

"... but they are fully compatible with one another using adapters."

No sir, Elpha lenses cannot be "adapted" to Alpha bodies.

Stop hijacking the good Alpha name Sony. E-Mount is no more an Alpha than a Metabones adapter turns it into an EOS.

Good article for this exercise. Consider dropping another sheet on the foreground for cleaner color than the green grass may cast.

I support any article that encourages users to become more accomplished photographers. Good show DPR!

I've carried my cameras this way for three decades. I hate straps around my fingers and controls. This is a well conceived product.

WARNING... If you're not used to carrying this way, you must be very cautious. Always pick camera up from table by the strap first. Grabbing the camera will quite often (quite often) let the strap dangle and loop around the edge of a chair or anything. Raising the camera will YANK it out of your hand to fall upon the floor, perhaps in many pieces. Top mount straps don't allow that because your hand acts as a break if the strap latches onto something.

It is a most comfortable way for shooting and carrying. It is also very dangerous for the inexperienced.

Everlast66: With all their history from the glorious days of Asahi to the legendary Limited lens series, I don't see how Pentax came out with this thing.

First it was the K-01 a few years back, now this.

You mean, the glorious days of Honeywell?

In reply to:

fuego6: Film!?! and how the hell does he just "throw" the hoop that high in the air? Terrible "inteview"...

I would suppose... he's obviously using wide or ultra wide angle lenses. Throw hoop from camera and it will appear much larger than where it actually hits the ground. The height is an optical illusion from the ultra wide lens.

I don't know for a fact this answers your question.

Excellent lighting and treatments. Very tasteful.
Well executed and entertaining concept.

Bravo!

Two of these and a camera drone could accommodate most of my portrait sessions from the comfort of my office.
