On The X-factor: Hands-on with Fujifilm's X30 article (37 comments in total)

I'm sure it's more substantial in the hand, but in some of these photos, it looks like a LOMO camera.

On Consumer SLR Camera Roundup (2014) article (41 comments in total)

Did the author distinguish that Sony and Pentax put some image stabilization capabilities into the body.

On Samsung NX3000 real-world samples article (143 comments in total)

If this camera were reviewed, I'm expecting a 71. Download a Samsung NX100 Userr's Manual and you'll get an idea how photo-centric Samsung is. One of the best teaching User's Manual I've seen in this industry.

In reply to:

jameshamm: No matter how short the time interval might be between these multiple shots, this approach will not be suitable for fast moving subjects.

Never say never. But would be interesting to try concept for other still image cameras.

Brian Alpert: i wonder how many terabytes of RAM you'll need to process these 200 mp images in lightroom.

Yup. I remember when 20 MB was an external hard drive. Now, thumb drives are 32 GB!

Great and interesting news. Better than rebadging Sony cameras. Based on how cameras now combine hand-held multiple exposure images (HDR mode) in-camera, could this concept make its way into other cameras?

On Sony a7S used to shoot Chevrolet commercial article (278 comments in total)

In the grand scheme of things, when I see what Olympus wants for top M43 cameras, Fuji for its top APS-C cameras and Nikon for the V3, the A7S seems almost a bargain.

brownie314: I like what Samsung is doing with their cameras. However - I have seen lots of samples from Samsung cameras and the default processing, especially of skin tones, always seems to bluish and not attractive. I know different cameras have their "look", but to my eyes, Samsung does not have a good look SOOC.

Hard to say. But even the AWB can be tweaked. These really are cameras for thoughtful photographers, And the lower end models have the full complement of functions, just less capable processing engines, focus type.

On Sony a5100 First Impressions Review preview (572 comments in total)

$548, include the lens. We got rid of the mirror box, pentaprism, etc. When are the savings going to be passed on to consumers?

stratplaya: I have the Canon Pixma MG6220. Love the ouput (includes a gray ink cartridge) but it is an ink hog.

Same here. Except not sure about ink hog.

The older model is actually better as Canon has eliminated the second top paper feed for photo paper. Still, at the prices listed, either of the three are outstanding values.

I use 3rd party cartridges that work great and there are plenty of do-it-yourself refill solutions.

peevee1: and nobody still cared...

They are excellent cameras with great ergonomics and user interface. The 20 MP sensor that Samsung is using has excellent resolution. The kit lenses are excellent.

Chris62: Another simple body.
When the most advanced NX1?

How many lenses does one really need for any system unless he or she is a commercial photographer.

On Sony announces Alpha a5100 compact mirrorless camera article (106 comments in total)
In reply to:

OrdinarilyInordinate: This just looks like a Samsung NX3000/NX300M hybrid to me in a Sony package (shape and compact power zoom lens of the same range like NX3000, hybrid AF and touch screen like NX300/NX300M and many other Samsung versions, and 180 selfie screen like NX300M/NX3000).

We don't know. But they are clearly certain subassemblies, buttons, dials, etc. that go into the modern digital camera. The movie record buttons are all alike. The "hump" on this one looks a lot like Panasonic GF3.

I guess it was no different in film SLR days? Certainly, the Panasonic, Samsung, Sony cameras follow similar "design approaches."

Lot of common DNA in the modern digital camera. But Samsung models have looked like Sony.

In reply to:

Chaitanya S: Sony needs to start releasing some good lenses for mirrorless system and stop pushing so many bodies. Micro 4/3 and fuji x system have best choices of glass options right now.

Samsung NX also. But I expect there are more than enough lenses for any system out there now.

On Behind the Shot: Flames of the North article (67 comments in total)

Thanks for the generous sharing of your image and technique and doing something "nontraditional" and "different," which I think portrays this obviously magical place in a more profound way.

In reply to:

dash2k8: Don't know if anyone already commented on this, but as an owner of the A7s, I absolutely HATE the position of the video record button. Would it have killed Sony to place it anywhere else? As it is, pressing the REC button induces a shake that ruins the first 10 or so frames of the video. This annoyance aside, so far it's been great.

Exactly. Silly red video buttons. Except cameras that put it on the top. Otherwise, these push forward buttons are terrible, especially with finderless cameras you are already holding precariously.

We don't know what we've lost until it's gone. If the camera has to be in Movie Mode, the more useful shutter button can be used to start and stop video recording.

I think comparative reviews like this are a good idea:

Video
AF speed and precision
Dynamic range
Viewfinder systems (Although only Fuji and to a certain extent Sony have attempted to innovate)

Just 4 of the areas in which such reviews could be useful.

I know I need more knowledge about what it really means when a Canon PS 300HS and Canon EOS-M both do 1980 x 1080 HD video-think of the difference in sensor size!

Execution doesn't quite match from what I expected from the description. Overmanipulated. Underwhelmed. Great potential if done subtly.
