On Capture One Pro 8 software review article (306 comments in total)
In reply to:

Eric Nepean: I have CaptureOne Pro; I like the adjustments and editing, but an unfortunate discovery is that it is very slow with collections of over 10000 images and probably becomes unusable at the 30000 image mark. Wit a catalog of 4000 images or so, its a great tool.

i7 with 16GB or ram.

I have 60000+ images in my catalog and it is not slow. You should contact Capture One support to resolve your issue.

I believe you, but the Canon mount has been very reliable as well. The benefit of electronic apertures are numerous, better consistency, smooth control in video and Live view, simpler design of accessories (converters, extenders), and possibility of using lenses on third-party cameras (with adapters) with full aperture control.

Anyone knows how the active AF-point is changed on this?

Proof is in the pudding and the success of this camera will be determined by real life AF test (including AF-tracking and AF with Canon lenses), low light performance, and video quality.

It still looks like that Sony has not changed its Raw format thus constraining its still quality a bit (which is not good for such high-end camera).

I downloaded it. It does not render high resolution Raw files from EM-5 Mark II.

mpgxsvcd: The only thing that would get me excited about this camera is if you said it had 4K @ 60 FPS. 1080p @ 60 FPS isn’t even acceptable now that the GoPro has excellent 2.7K @ 60 FPS.

By the time this gets to ebay, it will be $40 and plenty of cheap accessories will be available.

This is $64. GoPro is what, $400 or $500?

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (3439 comments in total)
In reply to:

sunnycal: The sample images posted on canon's site are just Meh. They are large, bit do not have any additional detail. Could very well be jpeg processing, but Canon marketing should have posted some jaw dropping detailed images.

Yes, it is pretty good. I had not seen this on Canon's site.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review preview (951 comments in total)
In reply to:

sunnycal: I have had LX100 for two weeks now. As expected it has great image quality, and very nice jpg. I shoot Raw+JPG and always prefer the jpg version, no matter how much I process Raw in lightroom.

My biggest gripes are

1. Automatic focus point selection is poor, especially if subject is moving. If you have children playing, don't expect the face detection to nail it. With still subject, face detection is fine, but overall subject selection in non-people pictures fails.

2. Manually adjusting focus point requires taking eyes off the subject and fumbling with buttons. The issue is bigger because of the issue I mentioned above.

3. EVF is not very useful. The viewfinder is small, and is difficult to peer into, specially with glasses on.

4. The biggest, deal breaker, issue for me is the lack of macro mode. With a fixed lens camera, you would expect a macro mode. This camera does not.

It is about 1 foot, from 45mm and up.

I really hope that this is a pre production sample and production version would be much better, as this picture has no details.

you need high speed flash and a precise trigger. Shutter is mostly irrelevant (as long as it works).

You can not that shot even with 60fps. You need a very precise trigger which syncs with the firing of the gun.

Does it incorporate the features added to D800 via firmware? Specifically the movie-button reconfiguration and trap-focus?
