On Talking myself out of the Nikon V1 article (1 comment in total)

i been trying hard to use the v1 for my kind of shooting. female models with some background. currently using the m9. but as much as i tried, with ft1 and various techniques, the nikon 1 lack of shallow DOF and bokeh renders the system almost just like an ordinary P&S system.
IMHO, the 4/3 at least has decent bokeh and shallow DOF.

Its been many months now since the Nikon 1 system release, somehow i have the feeling its a pure gimmicky answer to the 4/3, loyalist and customers will have nothing to look forward to, given that there is still no decent lens to answer the bokeh/shallow DOF without looking ridiculous and standing miles away.

obeythebeagle: Right now the D800 seems to blow everything else away (if you need to make ten-foot blow ups) so you can't blame Nikon for supply and demand pricing.

Get the SD1. ;-)

having the ability to generate shallow DOF on out of focus subjects is often as important as having a focused subject. without this capability, in practical terms, the V1 would be less useful and therefore inferior to the m4/3rd of current offering even with the old 12 mp sensor.
Size of sensor, at the end of the day...wins.

nothing new :-) as expected, quality loses to the current 4/3rds . folks, please remember, physical rules = reality. image sensor size = rocks.

In reply to:

dmanthree: I always wondered why someone would buy these rebadged Pannys. The software bundle isn't that great, so is the prestige of that red dot worth that much (assuming Leica prices it as usual: much higher)? I'll stick with my FZ150.

"Another pleasant valley Sunday, here in status symbol land!"

but M9 has nothing to do with Pana....

On Adobe faces criticism for change of upgrade policy news story (398 comments in total)
In reply to:

Aaron MC: Adobe is killing their golden goose. It won't be long before open source options like GIMP have all of the core features that most Photoshoppers need.

its unfortunate that at the point of writing, GIMP is pretty much "stupid" to most users who are using adobe. if you start straight on GIMP, well life goes on, u would think its a great tool.
i agree on 2 points abt GIMP, "stupid" and free.

On Adobe faces criticism for change of upgrade policy news story (398 comments in total)
In reply to:

itchhh: You really need to ask yourself, do you "really" NEED their software? Microsoft Office gets away with what they do because they ARE the standard, Adobe is NOT the standard in graphics software. Unlike Microsoft Office, Adobe cannot snuff out the competition.

and why does "basic app has to be free" ? so that developers can die of starvation? IMHO what if whatever field ur in demands to be free except for side features?
Free is only possible in open source where developers are free in the first place.

Open office waste a number of clicks and conversion everytime u use it to share/open other people's documents (which is MS office), its not so productive but its free since nobody wants to buy it.

Microsoft should sell MSoffice at much lower prices given their market dominance. As for Adobe, u can always use GIMP instead of PS, thats free for u.

In reply to:

Digital Suicide: Cmon, panasonic? Where is your LX6/LX7? Canon is ahead in the market with S100.

s100 ? the days of such compacts are over my friend. 4/3 is the minimum for quality images. If u want compact quality, a mobile phone would be sufficient.

Direct link | Posted on Nov 7, 2011 at 06:14 UTC

if canon is replying Red, this means that this camera is the DSLR killer.
Just shoot video and extract any stills from it and u get a hi-res image.

Direct link | Posted on Oct 26, 2011 at 02:20 UTC as 31st comment

why would anyone buy this instead of the NEX or m43? Nikon should just eat the humble pie and followed the footstep of :
1) NEX : using APSC all nikon lens owner would be able to use the new camera
2) m43 : at least you get much better picture quality and bokeh capabilities due to sensor size, compared to 1"

Instead, Nikon just want to show the world that they are able to innovate and produce a system for the sake of producing one.
