phazelag: When I get bothered by the rude comments sometimes on a thread, all I have to do is come to one of these posts to realize the editors and writers take way more abuse any of us ever take. Its insane the lack of respect, thanks, or perspective.
@ ottonis:i disagree. if you ask me, quality of dpreview etc falls down (maybe they're tad saved by video reviewers) and average knowledge on forums etc went up.
@ howaboutraw:10 years of cmos. your call..http://www.juzaphoto.com/article.php?l=en&t=10_years_apsc_sensor
nice, good move canon. now put sony sensors (or somehow extend dr range in yours) in your cameras , and you're done.
it's like job application: dpreview is hiring!
and at the end:Please note - these roles are US (Seattle) based. We apologize, but we cannot accept applications from candidates outside of the United States.
cpkuntz: Apple has always had insufferable advertisements, but at least the company behind them makes products meeting contemporary standards of quality. They don't put Intel 150 MHz 486 processors in their iPad. Canon still puts ancient sensors in full frame cameras, leading to the laughable situation in which entry-level crop cameras from everyone else have better IQ than Canon's $3000-$7000 pro cameras.
dxo is nikon/sony fanboy machine, if you ask me. yes, they have gear to prove their claims, but its their's gear, right? they can make everything look bad, if they want..people actually using both systems etc, prove many times that there's no such a great difference between camera sensors today.just take a look in some test shots here, basically the same results in terms of colours, noise tetc. ok, so some nikon models can pull mora from shadows and have maybe nicer anti noise processing, but that's about it. difference is was over hyped in some cases..
mr.izo: ik, it's canon campaign, but dpreview basicaly make false idea on global scale, so canon usa site get more clicks..not realy fair towards dpreview users, id you ask me. but that was expected when site went to to texas..
i'm not saying it's dpreview fault for that kind of marketing, but for sure dpr helps a bit. this is international site with many users, which expecting news from more or less from digital photography/cameras. sarcasm was just smoke bomb so dpr can clear his name, but people knows better..
dahod: Just in case Canon is monitoring this forum
1) The photo community naturally assumed it was aimed at us and Canon allowed that perception to continue - bad decision and continues to feed the growing disconnect between Canon the company and their faithful following.
2) Has anybody tried that website? It took forever to load on my computer and then took me to a confusing interface that ultimately allowed me to connect with the pre-existing Canon website. Unfortunately I'm missing the point of it all - maybe we're supposed to "stay tuned" for Phase ll.
3) Whoever at Canon thought this was a good idea needs to reassess their priorities. I'm sure Canon has bigger issues to spend their time and resources on.
4) If it was even remotely groundbreaking we could probably cut them some slack but there are lots of examples of better done interactive websites out there that they could have used for ideas. Hopefully they didn't pay too much for this.
Sorry Canon - 0 kernels out of 5
dahod, you were little bit more exact, bit basicaly i agree with everything..
oh, plesase, spare me with that talking bs. why did dpreview make that big ad and starts forum talk? it's cheap trick to promote yourself, nothing else and dprview plays role here, for sure.

let me try:
why .usa page, not international?
Gosman: I don't understand why these are still USB 2.0 instead of 3.0? USB 3.0 is much faster and should speed up scan time tremendously!?
I guess there's firewire option on scanner, but i agree, usb3 now days is a must..Or to be exact: i wouldn't go scanning some big resolutions and big formats without usb3/firewire (800mbit). could take "hours", like on old drum machines..
ThePhilips: Does DPR has a film scanner in the office?
It would be interesting to have a film camera or two in the studio comparison test.
Forget dpreview in scanning tests etc, this kind of area it little bit different than just counting pixels.Best place to check for some let say non basied review is probably photo-i (if the guy that running site, is still performing scanner reviews) etc..
Tee1up: I have an Epson 4490 that i purchased exclusively for scanning my slide collection and it has been a nightmare. I cannot get a sharp scan out of the thing, Epson was no help. I am looking at these two but am sceptical.
Anyone out there recommend a good color slide scanner that doesn't break the bank?
The main thing which you have to know with these "cheap" flatbeds is that don't use no kind of internal focusing system (compared to specialised ones). So you get, what you get on glass. Focusing feature is the most important thing to have on scanner to obtain sharp results (besides good tonality, anti dust system etc).For your kind of scanner (i have kind of first version of this epson photo scanners, the 3200 photo model), only way to obtain better focus is to have some heigh adjustments na scanner plastic holders. epson didn't offer this at first (i think v version does feature this), so you can get alternative here:http://www.betterscanning.com/scanning/vb_mfholder.htmlcould make big difference with scans in terms of sharpness/optical resolution.
mr.izo: lol, that gif..
could be, hehe..
lol, that gif..
oh, sigma and theirs news biennial.. just test the damn thing, dpr, specially high iso, video and battery performance (the wickest points of foveon).why design grip in reverse way, ther's fixed lense in front any way? when ff sigma?
amm, will be curvature made by segments or just in one piece? in second option that would require some new technologies in sensor buffer production right?
edit, i didn't catch this:"The team has made somewhere in the vicinity of 100 full-size sensors with their bending machine. We are ready."so, they're basically bending sensors?
iShootWideOpen: There is nothing special about any of the Schneider lenses made for the Phase mount. The Hassy H lenses are superior in every way.While Leica and Zeiss are the Porsche and Mercedes of the optics world, Schneider is VW.
and audi, škoda, lamborghini..
mr.izo: next time include things like canon 17-40, 17 tse, maybe sigma 12-24 etc. you know, things that people actually use for landscape photography..
@ devendra:yes, canon 17 tse and sigma 12-24 are non bukly. and so many nature photographers don't use plan nd filters on all their non bulky lenses, wide or narrow..
next time include things like canon 17-40, 17 tse, maybe sigma 12-24 etc. you know, things that people actually use for landscape photography..
so, "cheap" 16- ff lense and new aps wide one for video support. makes sense in a way for filling gaps..
