Ken Croft: To heck with the cameras, introduce me to the lady please!

Nice lady indeed.

Is it me or is this the first preview video (except for focus demonstrations and sample videos of course) posted by dpreview? Looks like they did a great job, I only want more of these!

On Lytro Light Field Camera first look with Ren Ng article (225 comments in total)

I liked the idea. It's nice to be able to postpone the focus adjustment process, and this camera allows fast exposures by (somewhat) eliminating the need for auto focus. Of course, it does so at the expense of camera size. Check out all those optics in the cut out, and compare to the retractable lens of a P&S. Of course an 8x f2 lens across the zoom range is neat and somewhat justifies the size. However, the size must inevitably increase for more resolution. I think even a 5MP camera with this principle would be quite big. The imaging sensor can always be made better (more MP), in time. But the optics required to do the same trick with more resolution will be quite large. Another problem is file size. There will be need for keeping multiple times the size a single focus image would need. Still, it might work! The sad thing is after developing this innovative technology they gave it to an art designer who turned it into a freak. I want dials and knobs.

On Editorial Lighting - The Minimalist Way article (89 comments in total)

Thank you for this article. I appreciate the work. There is some very useful advice such as how harsh shadows can give away artificial light, and setting up lights from darker to lighter. I think the first and last images look quite similar in thev feel they convey. It may be easy to get such a shot by accident, but getting them by design is what makes them valuable.

Actually for this zoom range, 2/3'' sensor is quite good(FZ-50 had 1/1.8'' with 12x).

On Another view on Nikon 1 article (2 comments in total)

Viewfinder, twin dials and more buttons definitely would have made Nikon 1 a lot more attractive, but then I guess it would inevitably eat away at P7100 sales, which has a smaller sensor.

Parent A:
-large sensor->better IQ, ISO performance
-interchangeable lenses->less pocketable,
->have to switch lenses frequently,
->need to carry multiple lenses
->expensive lenses

Parnet B:
-small sensor->moderate IQ, ISO performance
-fixed lens ->more pocketable,
->one bright zoom lens
->no need to switch lenses
->no need to carry multiple lenses
->pay for lens only once

-small sensor
-interchangeable lenses

Case in point: The parents' worst qualities are merged to produce this child. A small sensor is justified only in its reduction of lens size, and indeed rendering multiple lenses unnecessary. But it's of course great for the manufaturer to offer a small sensor AND make you buy seperate lenses for it, and I will in no way challenge people's right to buy them. I won't.

In reply to:

Cyril Catt: If small cameras can have pop-up flash units, why not pop-up OVFs?

especially plausible for a fixed focal length.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in Canon we had to grab a G12 to get this much zoom range with a 1/1.7'' it looks like a good deal, although where I live it will be too closely priced to G12 to make a difference

On Panasonic launches FZ47/FZ48 24x superzooms article (98 comments in total)

I'm all too happy with my FZ-50, the zoom and focus rings, beautiful lens(35-420mm-35mm eqv), 1/8'' sensor, not to mention RAW...

If Ricoh has any sense, PENTAX brand will remain. They would be unwise to remove it. An even worse feat would be to name it Ricoh-Pentax.
It's not a good thing.

On Panasonic DMC GF3 announced and previewed article (2 comments in total)

I applaud Pana for realizing that size advantage is what makes u4/3 tick, I have been disagreeing with their G-models, but the GF line seems on the right track to me. One point is that I wish they didn't sacrifice manual controls(dials/knobs/switches) for compactness, many believe it's not a trade off.

Good job on this one.

On Pentax Q preview (279 comments in total)
In reply to:

06m1r3m86: Still haven't seen a MILC that appeals to me. I love my Canon 350D, but it's getting old and I want to replace it, but I haven't seen a MILC that I really feel can do the job. These things are popular, but I really feel that a camera like the Sony SLT-A55 is the best combination of size and features. This appeals to me even less than most MILCs do.

Also 350D user here, I don't know if I could do without the monochrome LCD and real durable battery life(no live-view). Can't bring myself to change it.

In reply to:

fransams: Quote from image-resource:

"Though we had received permission in advance to shoot and post a small set of our laboratory sample shots reduced to half-size, we received notice after publication that Pentax wanted the images removed."

Why tell me why....

Why do you think ;)

Make such a cute-looking retro camera, and then place a 2/3'' sensor. And make the user actually buy lenses for such a small sensor. The flash looks like it has a mechanical life span of five launches. I could easily forgive lack of integrated VF. Oh, and pay 800 dollars by the way. No, thanks.
