So what do you do if you need a 300mm equiv. telephoto on this thing?

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1178 comments in total)

quezra: DPR once again FAILED to answer the most important question: Does it come with matching handbag?

I'm pretty sure the handbag costs extra, as well as the sensor, strap, battery, viewfinder, and the rear buttons. The internal electronics might be included, but not sure.

Holy snap! That's one hell of a clean and sharp image. I'm actually impressed.

On Video: Capturing nature with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II article (187 comments in total)

I wonder what camera the director used to shoot the whole video... it was most impressive, with perfect lighting and exposure, especially the indoor scenes.

But does it have image stabilization, fast auto-focus and 4K video?

On A second glance: two takes on the Leica X article (386 comments in total)
In reply to:

vroger1: The reviews mirror what other sites have stated. It never ceases to amaze me that a company such as Leica could turn out a product which is so esoteric. I don't believe I have ever seen one in use. This problem is not strictly Leica's. Canon has for years striven to produce digicams with wide appeal but always leave something out- be it a viewfinder (Optical or EVF) or a fast lens. The only company in solely my opinion, which has time and again succeeded in bringing out digicams with the widest possible appeal is Panasonic.

But could all those fine Fuji lenses handle FF?

What ever happened to the trusty, wonderful 50mm "normal" lens? The 50mm focal length used to be my most useful lens by far. It was great for most of my shooting situations and gave me the best quality images. Why is it being ignored these days? Why has it fallen out of favor? It just gets no respect.

It would have been more helpful and informative if we had some indoor shots of people at ISO 800 to ISO 6400.

maxnimo: Okay, I'm trying hard to not burst into laughter, but what would a serious photographer use a 7-14mm lens for?

The only thing I can think of is a sneaky, dishonest realtor who wants to make a small room appear huge.

The fact remains that I have never EVER seen a crowd of people taken with a 20mm equivalent lens (or wider) where the faces toward the edges weren't blurred or distorted badly.

As far as good photographic technique, it all depends: if we're talking about artistic photography, that's a completely different animal. In artistic photography anything goes. Even a white smudge taken by a toddler could win first prize somewhere.

"........Yeah, NO ONE in photography uses wide angles! Yeah, right."

Yes, but are they SERIOUS photographers?

daddyo, your reply is the only one I consider somewhat valid, although the faces toward either edge in that crowded room won't look very nice.

As for ultra-wide landscapes, I've seen hundreds of them taken with very expensive PRO cameras, and they'd never pass my test. A landscape with blurry edges is junk to me, not to mention the overall geometric distortion of reality.

Everlast66: I think it is laughable to call anything associated with the M4/3 system "PRO"!!

Surely there would be one or two enthusiasts, but no normal professional will rely on a M4/3 sensor for their professional work.

Yeah Everlast66, it's ridiculous. And so are all the silly amateurs that think FF systems are "PRO".
The only truly "PRO" system is 8"x10", which is what I use for all my "PRO" stuff. For me anything less is a child's toy.

This lens could either be too cheap, or too expensive. It all depends on its optical quality.

I sure am curious how it would compare to similar glass from nikon, canon, samsung and fuji.

maxnimo: Horrible lens! Probably has plastic elements full of mold and mildew. And full of scratches too. And must be blurry all over. Probably can't even do color and has zero bokeh. Yuck!

But what if I'm wrong? What if this lens performs better than a Leica?

Relax... chill out... it's not the end of the world!
The lesson here is that you can't trust anyone. Even a perfect person is not perfect and can be wrong! Only believe what you see with your own eyes. Trust no one!

On Tiny fps1000 high-speed camera boasts 18,500fps article (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

maxnimo: What we should be striving for is 240 fps video on true 240 fps monitors. The result would simply blow you away.

Video at 8K resolution and 240 fps would be close to ideal, but I certainly don't expect to see it this year... I'm not that foolish. But I would prefer 1080p /120fps video than 4K at 60 fps. Then the next step should be 4K at 120fps, then 1080p at 240fps, then 4K at 240fps... and then eventually to 8K at 300 fps - the ultimate.
