On Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article (67 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: DPR's final words are off the base and common sense, because first the camera is established as a mid-level camera -- as Ricoh Imaging stated -- but then DPR compared it to Nikon's and Canon's entry low-level cameras and their price.

Well, such a paradoxical conclusion. Reminds of the same problem they had with the Q7. Can we expect better from the DPR than its usual guesswork? Is Pentax brain really guilty for challenging common misconceptions about cameras and how they should look?

Put a Canon logo on K-S1, and odes of praise would follow, "Canon decided to put a 100% view pentaprism, removed AA filter, uses brand new sensor and not one 5 years old as usual .. whoa! Camera of the year!"

The 20 meg sensor is probably the sensor in the Sony 58 (very good sensor).

That OVF viewfinder sure has good specs compared to any competition.

GoneMirrorless: Scratching head. Why compare when they are so different???
GH4 $1000 less and has 4K option no extras needed
A7s $1000 more needs $2000 option for 4K, undisputed low light king, FF

Where are the real reviews? I wanted to read about the GH4 - the one I can afford - and there is only this which is not helpful to those with an under $2000 budget.

I read GH4 focuses like a top DLSR -big advance for mirrorless- but this review has squat about that.

$1,000? The gh4 is $1700. Lets see who blinks and drop their price in the next 2 months.

Where is the Pentax Q in all of this verbiage.

Is it the PP or does this camera lens combo have trouble with the red channel?

Jon Porter: I don't see any side arms until the current kit. I'd of thought a soldier would have carried a pistol pretty much since the invention of percussion weapons.

Officers carry pistols for self protection and motivation of troops.

What a fun essay...it would be interesting to see a comparative of enemy and ally. The Helmund province would be pretty drastic, i would think.

Konstantin Shtondenko: Hi, guys.

Pics.io team is here and will be happy to participate in a discussion.

I'll add a bit to the article. The editing doesn't yet use WebGL, so performance during photo editing is poor yet. For now, it's more of a catalog in the cloud, than catalog and editing in the cloud.

Thanks for the clarification...do you have a timetable for augmenting web gl?

Another use of the Sony 24mpix?

In reply to:

steelhead3: I can't believe they sullied that rig with that old Nikon lens.

Obviously my comment was tongue in cheek also; I have a Minolta 600 that looks the same as that old Nikon (AF though).

On Niko announces service advisory for D810 'bright spots' article (374 comments in total)

Nikon should emulate Sigma and release a dock for their cameras and then fix it over the internet (Nikon I won't except compensation, just an idea you need to develop)

On Rare Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM goes on sale in UK article (216 comments in total)

I really would like to see some photos with that lens; I can put a 2x TC on my 600f4 and have with a crop camera and FF. Atmosphere just makes this a toy unless you enjoy wavy pictures.

On Nikon D810: A sport photographer's impressions article (231 comments in total)

Guy,do you own the 80/400 or was it loaned to you...the cavalier attitude with rain does lend the belief you may not own it and maybe have to send to Nikon and its famous impact damage claims.

On Exposing sharks in a positive light article (62 comments in total)
In reply to:

spitfire31: Yes, great photos. But why no information about what species of shark, and where?

I did some diving off Los Cedros back in the day, lots of different species, watching them chase tuna gives an idea of how quick they can be.

On Ricoh expands Q series with Pentax Q-S1 article (352 comments in total)
In reply to:

steelhead3: This is a continuation of the Pentax super auto 110 (now m4/3), a small camera that take great photos.

I was being a little cheeky...the 110 is a serious camera (I still own one).

In reply to:

Ellis Vener: Blame Sony, not LPA Design. Sony management is bound and determined to keep you in the Sony universe for accessories. They aren't terribly happy about the Metabones lens adapters except that it makes the transition for Canon and Nikon DSLR owners to Sony cameras initially easier.

There is no similar incentive to cede any part of their market for high profit accessories like flashes to another company.

From a pure capitalist point of view it is hard to blame them for that, except to say that I think it is short sighted thinking on their part.

Probably a couple of corrections for your interest...Sony bought Minolta's glass factory and do build their own lenses (G and Zeiss mostly). Since they are the majority stock holder in Tamron, a number of the more inexpensive are developed and made under Tamron auspices. Zeiss does make some lenses for different brands in the Cosina factory, nothing to do with Sony.
