On Fujifilm X100T (beta) real-world samples article (89 comments in total)
In reply to:

maxnimo: If such a camera would have at least 2 settings, 35mm and 80mm, I could live with it. But to be stuck at 35mm is just too limiting for me, regardless how perfect it is.

I simply can't imagine any scenario where "only 35mm" could fill my need on a photo shoot.

For family portraits I'd never use anything wider than 50mm, and for travel/vacations 35mm would satisfy less than about 30% of my needs.

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (571 comments in total)

Seems like a nice camera, but are there any available lenses that can properly use all those fine megapixels? Without an edge to edge sharp lens most of those megapixels simply get wasted.
Another words, how does Samsung glass compare to Zeiss, Fujinon or Leica?

In reply to:

maxnimo: 23 glass elements? Anything over 6 glass elements makes me real nervous. I hope they know what they are doing.

OK then, assuming price and weight were irrelevant, how many glass elements should a perfect lens have... 50? 95? 340? or maybe 820?

Well, more glass elements give you:

1. more weight
2. more bulk
3. more light loss
4. more reflections
5. more surfaces for outgassed matter to settle upon
6. more cost

On Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm article (336 comments in total)

All jokes aside, I'd love to see this lens tested side by side with a Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R prime.

maxnimo: I believe I can afford this lens... if I sell my old car, my wife and my kids.

Well, this lens looks better than my wife and probably performs better than my kids, so it's worth it.

maxnimo: I'd like to see a camera stream photos in real time to such a device via low-power short range wi-fi without any internet or smartphones involved, this way you could keep the storage drive in your backpack while photos are automatically streamed to it as you shoot.

NFC is way too slow. Wi-Fi is over 1000 x faster.

Hmmm... I was expecting to see a leaping tiger trying to save a cute panda from a crazed shark.

On Fujifilm X30 (beta) real-world samples article (94 comments in total)

Photo samples are supposed to demonstrate the quality and capability of a camera or lens, not to show off a photographers goofy artistic talents. Why do so few understand that? Showing one small subject surrounded by blurriness is fine, but that only demonstrates a very tiny part of what photographers need.

Anyone know if this PSP includes all the tools that PSP 9 used to have?
Also, can the workspace (custom user interface settings) be transferred from PSP 9 to this new one?
And can it still use tubes?

I didn't know water causes a camera to lose color. Bummer.

When the monkeys revolt and take over, they will get plenty of legal status whether you like it or not.

Darn it! I hope they give me a full refund for my already prepaid Thai vacation.

I'd prefer them striving towards 120 fps, and ultimately 300 fps. 4K video at 300 fps is like looking at reality out of a window. That should be the goal.

On Readers' showcase: Landscape photography article (107 comments in total)

Seems like you need an ultra wide angle lens to win awards these days. I guess people just love those distorted-reality images. Soooo... off to the store I go to buy me a 3 mm lens and start snapping away. By next week I should be super famous.
