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

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.

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.

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 (65 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

If someone said the EM-1 has exceptional IQ, what could they say for this...

ViVicam....
I feel awkward saying that name...

Nonetheless, the fanboys would say this particular camera has that "Zeiss" 3D rendering.

In reply to:

qwertyasdf: Personally the best lens this year is Canon's 11-22mm STM
It's small, it's light, it's sharp, it's got image stabilization, it's got low distortion...and it's so CHEAP!!!

I don't shoot people or go birding with it, but for any other occasions, like parties, hiking, travelling, street photography, it's a must have.

It's certainly not special, but to me, it's exciting.
Most real photographers' fav or most used lens is probably nothing special anyways. I bring it with me where ever I go, and I naturally fall in love with the lens.
I've got exotic glasses like the 85L, but it's more like a one night affair.

photo nuts: 580g? The more useful Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 only weighs 560 g.

No thanks

Now you've pointed that out, this lens doesn't sound as sexy
I'd rather have a F4 pancake!
