Eugene232: ugliest camera ever..

Not that easy, with Hassy and the K-01 in the game.

Joachim Gerstl: So that's how you are supposed to hold it. Now it makes perfect sense.

Holding something with both hands is an act of respect in Asia.
Sigma is forcing us to #respect.

BeaniePic: It's not the same 18MP sensor everyone. Please, please, read up on whats happening before you comment. Haven't been here for a while due to the lack of knowledge and understanding from commentators on this site. I'm leaving again....

Yes, the 650D and 700D had a few CDAF pixels
Guess how was their af performance

since its a m43 lens, even without looking at any sample pictures, i know i will be blown away by the price.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summary article (535 comments in total)

What's the practical advantage of a multi-aspect sensor?
I'd like to use the full 15mpx and crop afterwards any day.

Why so many complaints about the lack of external controls? It's just a matter of getting used to. (unless it is as crappy as old NEX menus)
External controls make more sense in DSLRs when your eyes are glued to the VF, but in a liveview camera, it is not as essential.

Why not name it D3 to insult Nikon?

I praise Canon for putting in a CONSISTENT effort on sensor technology.
The same sensor from 550D to 1200D and everything in between. (ignore the 1000D and 1100D)

Glad that Canon is releasing a proper G1X Mk II
Not a G1X Mk1.01c beta crap like their Rebel and Powershot S line

20+4.9+4.9 = 39? I don't get it!

If the grip is facing backwards, then the thumb needs to exert pressure to hold the camera. How can i use my thumb to press the buttons on the back?
I just tried holding my Canon 1D backwards, it dropped on the ground.
(But the scrollwheel, which is now in the front is very convenient for the index finger to turn)
Am I holding it wrong? I don't get it

Anyways, I'm gonna get it no matter what! ByeBye DP2M

A selfie grip to appeal to the masses.

In reply to:

danieljcox: They're beating their chest about giving the photographer 30%???? WTH, We used to get 60% of all sales when it was much more difficult and costly to market photographs. Today, anybody suggesting it's more expensive to market images is obviously making excuses for taking more for themselves (500px). The internet has made all things less expensive and that includes marketing photos. They should be paying more than what agents did in the 70's, 80's, 90's and early 2000's. This offer is offensive and even worse with them trying to sell it by ANNOUNCING 30% as if that's a wonderful deal. It's not. Tell them to forget it. Take your pictures out.

In response to your " We used to get 60% of all sales..."

They said: "[screw you, we want to] fundamentally change the way photos are licensed"

On Fujifilm X-T1 images added to studio test scene article (66 comments in total)
In reply to:

forpetessake: I'm starting wondering how useful the new studio test tool is.
There are so little visible differences between various cameras, that one may think they all produce the same image quality, until you start shooting them side by side or even look at various sample photos to understand how vastly image quality varies between them. Just last year I tested 6 different cameras, all of them look very similar on this test scene, all of them have very different image quality in real shooting.
I think the old comparison tool was a lot more representative.

Is the old test scene on ebay yet?

Fairly speaking, bad job, Hassy. It's a big step back from the Lunar and Stellar
Why no marble grip, diamond knobs? I guess everybody would love a camera that weighted a tonne.

"tough as nails"! did they mean hammer or nail?
These guys probably never used one, thus cannot differentiate.

I think some manager overheard the Canon guys saying "I can hammer a nail with my 1D!"
Surely, a Canon 1D could easily hammer this Hasselblad HV into the coffin.

Dan Tong: It's good to hear that at least one company is not content to sit back and only work with currently accepted sensor design. Constant re-thinking is the crucial factor behind all of the innovation that improves technology. Of course, some lead to dead ends, or are superior, but market forces sometimes, though not often, cause inferior technology to win out.

Keep in mind that the primate visual system uses receptor arrays, and that the receptive fields of ganglion cells (which constitute the output of the optic nerve) vary a lot in size, sensitivity, and distribution. The optic nerve provides the input for additional processing, to the rest of the "brain".

The visual system works a lot better than any current digital imaging system (signal to noise, rapid accurate focusing etc.), so obviously we have far to go, to even catch up.

Most of the negative comments about many innovations, generally appear to come from people who don't really understand much of what is being discussed.

My eyes need no AA filter!
I look forward to Fuji and Panny's organic sensor, it makes much more sense.

In reply to:

silentstorm: And I thought Phase One is pretty strict with a full frame medium format 6x7 sensor

Anyway, it looks like a downgrade to me, 14bit colour? Used to be 16bit with very wide colour gamut & DR. The only thing it boosts is "low noise"

Guess economics took its toll on this one as well

Nobody has ever did a 6x7 sensor I guess, not even a 6x45!
The Pentax 645D is called a 645, and everyone not owning one thought it was a 645...but no...it's still cropped
