richard stone's recent activity

  • I'm not sure I entirely understand Ted's objection to your post because, as I recall, what Sigma has said is that each one of the 2x2 small pixels is used in the final result of the image. (For ...
  • TN: I agree with you. The way the world works has not changed much from before Adam Smith to today, in terms of producing and promoting and selling "better" products. There is nothing actually ...
  • I didn't know anything about it either. But there is a link to the concept earlier in this thread. My thought is that the idea with P-S is that any use of that type of "process" would be properly ...
  • No, it is not naive, it is a starting point. Before we start talking about what something "really" means, and before we start considering some lying by the company, or even puffery, think about ...
  • Yes, it's possible, although when I read of and consider possible reasons for the q approach, my first reaction is to simply accept the explanation of the people who are trying to sell it. Why not ...
  • Yes, and it would make a certain amount of sense to have a small/compact camera with an APS -C sensor and a DSLR with a FF 30MP sensor. Alternatively, one could propose just a 20MP sensor with ...
  • Replied in I love b/w
    Yes, a great image. Thanks for posting.
  • I very much agree. We simply do not know why the two images look slightly different in those small details. My experience as an occasional viewer, comparing the M and Q, is that the increased ...
  • Replied in XiaPu, China
    I like it a lot. I like how the shadows are dark. Richard
  • This I find very interesting. The Foveon shots seem to have a certain charm to them, at least in my experience.
  • I like this discussion, but… Talking about “colors” in the layers seems a mistake, even though it may be helpful at first, not because it is entirely wrong, but because it simplifies things too ...
  • I saw a nice picture in the mall today, probably about 18" x 24" with massive sharpening halos. I pointed them out to my twin daughters, now 14, and asked if they saw them too. "Yes, very ugly" ...
  • I live in Asia, and not to make too much of cultural differences, and I do not hold myself out as any sort of expert, although I have a small business here, because this could be true anywhere; ...
  • Yes, and I wonder if perhaps there was some error in how the request(s) you and your group made for assistance or cooperation that led to the apparent rejection and so-far inconclusive result? ...
  • Yes, it is "interesting" to consider all the business advice Sigma has been given over the years, and the consistent reports of impending failure and doom, and then to consider the results from ...
  • Roland Thanks for that information, which makes the Sigma actions even more puzzling. Not to say they do not have a good reason for what they did, or didn't do, but it's difficult to understand. On ...
  • Yes. And there are practical reasons for this, of course, but also others, as noted above. A practical issue is that if Sigma wanted to have a business relationship with all those people working ...
  • All good thoughts. Workflow is important, as is the internal culture at Sigma, partly in terms of resistance to change. All I was referring to in terms of "slow" was my general impression over the ...
  • I don't have a lot of sympathy for Sigma on this, but I can sort of, almost, see what they were getting at in terms of dealing with a "company." They wanted to have an "entity" on the other side ...
  • Reminds of cold weather in Yosemite. Not bothered at all by the snow in front: you say it's out of focus? Thanks for posting.
