Trollshavethebestcandy: First!
I think the Oly 12mm might be better and cheaper.

Have to agree with Hugo. Whatever Schneider puts out is going to be VERY good. Especially because its alot easier to make WA's without the mirror in there. Only question on these will be AF speed.

SergeyMS: Great camera. I compare it with my CCD medium format Phase One 40 Mp+ 645 body. Of course, medium format is better on low ISO, but the price difference! D800 is the best DSLR now. Fast enough, very big DR, best IQ. But who will buy it? Professional quality is still medium format. Non professionals don't need in so many pixels, and need in more compact size and weight.

And I wonder who cares about storage space when you can buy 1TB External HDD's for less than $100.

Now how does this work? Does everyone get a new camera for free? Can you send you camera in to have the sensor swapped for free? Or are the "beta testers" SOL and forced to pay for the new sensor?

The next gen FF faveon with live view and a decent write speed might actually be worth buying! Reminds of an x100. Both just needed a few loose ends tied up that the developers never seemed to get around to.

snake_b: I've noted something bizarre in that memory has increased in price over the last year, rather than falling. I bought an HD 1TB last year from WD for 49 euros. Now it's about 65+ euros. It was on sale when I got it, but the sale price now is still higher than at the point I bought.

Thats probably as a result of last year's flooding in Thailand which is where almost all the HDD's were made

In reply to:

Anfy: IMHO it holds remarkably well against the bigger sensor Sony NEX-5n even at 3200 ISO.

And shows enormous improvement at higher ISOs over the older EP3 sensor

In reply to:

Sumicron69: My best guess based on SD1 pricing... both models will retail for $5000.

No list price will be $5000. Street price will be $2500. 6 months later they will change the price to $100 and give everyone who paid $2500 a free optical viewfinder and maybe even a spare lens cap!

bradleyg5: Yawn, wake me up with they hit F/0.8. f0.95 is not terribly impressive when you only have to produce an image circle 1/4th the size of fullframe. sure the intensity of light is high, but the total amount of light passed through the lens is not worthy of that price tag.

But distance from the subject does change the DOF and since you crop the image you stand further away so increase this distance and therefore increase DOF

I'm actually surprised it took companies so long to come out with this. I think smartphones with zoom lenses and compact camera sized sensors are going to be the future of P&S

In reply to:

Albino_BlacMan: I had a quick read but coudln't find anything in regards to whether or not it is set up to better use multi-core processors. LR3 seems to be limited to using one core (or at least does very little with the others). Now that many people have 4 and even 8 cores I think they really need to take advantage of this.

My bad than! Sorry!

scottacus: Does it finally provide decent CA correction? Guess I will have to download and see.

Have you tried the Red/Cyan and Blue/Yellow sliders?

There's one guy that's been going on every forum he can find complaining about how his sandisk card didn't work. This firmware update is pretty much just for him

On Ricoh to make 16MP APS-C GXR zoom module news story (136 comments in total)
In reply to:

VeijoM: The GXR mount A12 -module would be ideal opportunity for Ricoh and Pentax to introduce the bigger Pentax mirrorless mount (not K-mount) that they are working on. Having option to use GXR and different Pentax mirrorless bodies for the same lenses sounds good and would support each other. And more importantly, Ricoh can now do it, why would they not?

Disagree. Have you ever used a pentax mx? If they could keep the mirror (or maybe lose it, who knows) and get down to that size I feel like it would be a huge success. And that has a mirror thats even bigger than anything Nikon and Canon are currently using

On Ricoh to make 16MP APS-C GXR zoom module news story (136 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sosua: Ahhhh, so this appears to be what Ricoh meant when they said they would be 'filling a gap'? Not for me, but. Good to see they have now got the 16mp chip on board - a shame it didn't make it to the M mount.

What I suspect may happen (and hope) is that the next m-mount upgrade (in about 2 or 3 years) will be FF. This is assuming that pentax goes FF under ricoh which is rumoured to happen. But who knows

In reply to:

Louis_Dobson: Regardless of Oly's intended market, I suspect many people here would use it differently... I use it alongside my full frame Nikon system, with the 12mm f2 and the 45mm f1.8 (24 and 90mm EFL). The body fits in my top pocket, each lens in my side pockets, and I can convert myself from a biker into a photographer in moments. I love it, frankly. It can easily be modified to give me quick control over ISO, exp comp and aperture from the jog dial, and with an eyefi card I can upload snap JPGs to FaceBook or do proper raw processing later at home. A wonderful, hilarious, fun, carry everywhere camera.

I can't see the point of any of these things with the supplied lens, a good point and shoot would be better, but add some small, fast primes and you can have a hoot.

I've not had so much fun out of a camera in years. Buy two!

And what makes you think Oly has a marketing department to start with? As an avid Oly fan I'm always on the look out for their marketing and have yet to see any evidence of a marketing department's existance

On Fujifilm releases X-S1 premium EXR 26X superzoom news story (383 comments in total)
In reply to:

JackM: I don't get it. If I'm going to lug around a camera this big, it's going to be a real DSLR. I like to choose lenses for myself, thanks.

Fuji would be wiser to develop the X100 concept further, like with interchangeable lenses and more fast primes. They could really build a niche around that body. Only Leica can/will compete.

Lol at this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2247/2150440053_9870562f42.jpg

goodluck shooting at 600 at anywhere other than bright sunlight. Hi ISO will be like every other small sensored camera, so as soon as they clouds come out you'll be stuck at 24mm

In reply to:

seahawk: Well, if they want to down that route, than maybe it is time to think of a "home and student" non commerical version for a reduced price, like MS is selling for MS Office.

This actually makes alot of sense. I like this response. One thing though... If they make a home/student version how much difference will there be between element/home/full pro?
