In reply to:

photoway: Hello,

On my side, I've already took nice pictures of the Total Lunar eclipse in France back in 2007.

At that time I was using the Nikon D2X with A 300mm Nikon + TC14.. all (camera and lens) on double tripods..

Have a look at the results :

Very nice, indeed :]

On Canon recalls about 14,000 PowerShot SX50 cameras news story (54 comments in total)

Hmm. This is quite unusual for a product made in Japan to have chemical issues with rubber (or plastic, or soft plastic) parts. These issues are usually reserved to cheapo Chinese copycat/original products. This is often visible on car dashboards made of soft plastic (or is it rubber?).
But can happen to anybody of course.

CarVac: Is there a way to align the panning around the entrance pupil of a lens so that you can be free of parallax errors?

Like a panorama head?
From the pictures (schematics), it looks like the PLUS version should be able to do that (look at the L shaped piece) - this should fix the pan. Not sure about the tilt movement though.

On Nikon Coolpix P600, P530, S9700 go big on zoom range news story (51 comments in total)

Is this a joke?
1/2.3 and 30-60x zoom? That was maybe cool 5-10years ago.
Why not give us rather double the sensor size and 1/3 of the zoom? it could fit into similar package. Nobody ever (ok maybe some exceptions can appear) needs more than 10-15x.
This thing is big and still is a toy (okay the price is right, but stilll...).

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4: a quick summary article (456 comments in total)

ZOMG. XLRs on a mft camera. That's damn neat.
Also the 60fps fullhd video is very tempting feature :]

qwertyasdf: DPR, go with the times!
I just need to know which camera is best for selfies period

The question is: which camera comes first with duck-face detection for selfies :D

On Lytro adds 3D viewing capability to its photos news story (46 comments in total)
In reply to:

lylejk: The problem Lytro, indeed, all plenoptic cameras are they are too expensive and nearly useless other then for it's toy aspects. Until you can print images using this technology, the only folk that get any benifit maybe at all with the result are social media image sites and even there, it's limited. Give me a lytro that can print 8X10 @ 254 dpi and for under $400 that can run software in Windows or Linux, then I might byte (it's a digital world now). lolol

:)

Well. Lytro isn't for printing anyway. It outputs nice web-sized pictured used for ... umm ... web.
And eventually somebody will come with some sort of lenticular printing to have those 3d photos printed :]

On Olympus Stylus 1 Preview preview (324 comments in total)

Very nice camera. It is possible for it to replace my e-pl1 in most situations. The only think that scares me is the hump for viewfinder. I'd really love to see a new camera without it. But otherwise I see no negatives :)

On Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review preview (2126 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rockaw: I think that people are missing it when they complain about the $1399 price point. It's a bargain.

Ming Thein has a very interesting post that shows how the OM-D E-M1 is most correctly compared to the Nikon D4. Same resolution, similar build quality, similar focus speed and accuracy. The D4 has much better video modes, but seriously, nobody buys a D4 to shoot video anyway. It's a still machine.

He also proves that the 5 axis IS is better than anything that Canon or Nikon has done in the lens. His gallery of 1 and 2 second handheld images is pretty amazing.

I know there is a lot of love by the fanboys for FF sensors (I make my living with a 5D3 - so I'm not one of them) but from what I'm seeing, I could use the new E-M1 to replace 95% of the shots I make with the 5D3.

Here's the most telling comparison:

@kbryd: I don't suppose you will find same materials in 'kit' lenses and high grade lenses. The special materials (like low dispersion glass, higt antireflex coatings, aspherical shapes ...) ARE expensive. For example I have paid EUR300 just for my two plastic lenses for my glasses (yes that's freak'n 150 per glass) - you can get both lenses for EUR50 if made from glass, even cheaper without antireflex, but optical quality won't be excellent.
I've moved from my kit lens (40-150) to zuiko 50-200 and the difference if visible.

Thanks for the link. Really nice comparison. The M1 looks really superior to M5 in lots of photographic results. Although the price tag is quite tough (but justified). At least for me who doesn't make living out of it. Gotta see if oly comes with lite/mini version of M1, I'm still enjoying my e-pl1 until then :)
