    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 ...
  • 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.

  • Replied in Seems plenty
    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 ...
  • Or when witnesses to big fires talk to news reporters. The flames always go "100 feet into the air".
    Were these people able to measure the flame height accurately, or do they have an accurate sense...

  • A lot of the Yongnuo strobes sold on-line under $100 are actually manual flashes, with adjustable power levels. Despite the cosmetics and fancy LCD rear display they don't offer e-TTL or iTTL, or...

  • I wouldn't consider the high end Nikon and Canon flashes "overpriced crap".
    The circuitry in them is frighteningly complex (and well made), called upon to direct precise bursts and pulses of high...

  • Sad to hear this news. Not terribly surprising, given that the photography "norm" is shifting, yet again.
    Back in the '80s, a pro photographer got a Metz flash, or maybe a Sunpak, or maybe a...

  • I think you have to live in downtown Tokyo to really "get" the colourful Pentax offerings. Or maybe Beijing.
    The rest of us in the dull gray/black world aren't really expected to understand all this.

  • My Nikon D700 came with the standard plastic clip on protector. But over time, the soft acrylic picks up scratches and "ruins the experience" as one previous poster so accurately commented. And ...
  • Yes, the Pentax 50-135 has been out for ages. Fuji were not the first.
    However, Pentax got little respect for this focal length choice. A couple of sports shooters I know switched to Nikon away...

  • How about the Nikon D1x - it's max shutter speed was 1/16,000th, and the flash synced at 1/500.
    There aren't any DSLRs that match that nowadays.

    To be fair, I think Nikon were "cheating" a bit...

  • Replied in Spotmatic lens
    Old M42 lenses are a hot ticket right now for Canon users looking for smooth focusing for their DSLR videos. Interest in the vintage Takumars is higher now than it has been in decades, mainly ...
  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    I guess the problem with comparing its price to the K-50 is that this camera has more megapixels.
    Newbies still count megapixels. It's proven hard to sell a camera at a higher price that has...

  • When it comes to fisheyes, focal length really doesn't matter all that much - at least not that we can make sense of it. In 35mm days, there were two kinds of fisheye lenses - circular image and ...
