  • I think all this press release really means is that we can expect a D5 sooner, rather than later. We probably only have to wait weeks, not months, for its final release.

  • Yes, come on Tamron, let's see some Pentax mount support.
    Sony A-mount is fading fast from the landscape, and we'd all love to see that 35mm with Pentax's pixel shift tech.

  • I find Canada Post works well for me 95% of the time. Then again, the last 5% does make you want to tear your hair out.

    I spent 10 minutes at the postal counter wondering why the clerk couldn't...

  • To be fair, it has been only very, very recently that third party adapters have supported electronic apertures. For more than two decades the electronic aperture has been a stumbling block to using...

  • Right, now Nikon owners can enjoy error messages when that little flex connector wears out. Shame on the Canon guys for keeping that all to themselves.

  • Replied in FM3a
    My all time favourite was/is the FE-2 - which is really the predecessor of the FM3a. Controls, handling, size and weight all make me wish a digital body could come close to emulating.

    Right you are 1/1250th, my eyes missed the one. So assuming you weren't shooting from a moving snowboard, camera shake shouldn't have been too much a problem. But I can't get around why the image ...
  • Love the shot. But you're right, it's not as sharp as you would want it. I wonder if you'd get a sharper image by forgoing the teleconverter and just cropping in more. But I also think at 1/250 you ...
  • Commented on a preview

    It's quite possible, given that the camera shown is pre-production, that the actual sensor to be used isn't available yet. Maybe the pre-production model has the old sensor fitted.

    Actually, I think the fellow understood the statistics of light gathering perfectly well. My paraphrase of his lengthy presentation doesn't do it justice. I wish I could remember his name or find ...
  • I've had some fun with my K-01 for video, but haven't tried anything serious with it just yet. I've got a mic to sit on the hot shoe, and it seems to work better than the built-in mics. As for ...
  • Replied in Seems plenty
    I liked the analogy the sensor designer gave in his youTube presentation, linked on DPR a few years ago. He asked us to imagine a football field covered in small cups. If left out in the rain for ...

    The idea is that fewer pixels means bigger pixels. With more surface area, each pixel captures more photons than would a smaller one. So each photosite can theoretically have higher light ...
