heehee :) LEGO RULES !!!

Why did the photogrpaher use shallow dof field.
Those classic photogrpahs were classics partly due to deep dof showing every element.

On article Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows (1394 comments in total)

Monochrome sensor ?

Would perhaps be what Nikon sees as "Pure Photography"

Sets Df apart from D6xx D8xx not just cosmetically but also internally.

The only 1/1.7" 28-300 F2.8 ever made

Also compare Sylus 1 small size to Pansonic Fz30/ FZ50 1/1.8" 35-420mm.

On article Niki Feijen's haunting images of abandoned houses (218 comments in total)
In reply to:

0MitchAG: I can't believe people are coming on here to derail the article with trash-talk about a characteristic of these photos which is ENTIRELY subjective. The foundation of art is creativity, and respect for the artist. If you do not enjoy the art, kindly.. leave the room and close the door behind you.
Some of these comments almost warrant a "who the __ are you?" retort.

I'm sick of looking at these features only to have it spoiled by what seems to be the majority here.
Having said all of that...

I think the most frightening aspect of these images is the shadow of the people who once inhabited these places, and the technology which in my opinion is a perfect juxtaposition of the artificial and the natural cycles of life -
that TV looks pristine, in comparison to the lifeless, aged facade of its surrounds.

0MitchAG ... Get off your high horse holier than though conceit.

What's with the heavily processed images.
Let the abandoned houses speak for themselves just as they are.

On article Fujifilm X100S Review (492 comments in total)
In reply to:

l_d_allan: Based on the "Noise and Noise Reduction" chart, the X100S has significantly better high iso noise than the Nikon D4, Canon 5dm3, and other full frames. I find that a bit hard to believe. Am I missing something?

X100s ISO should be halved to get actual ISO.

Ie. X100s ISO 1600 is actually ISO 800.

rocklobster: Don't apologize - you are just pandering to the brat mentality of the few.

Great review and great camera. Those ISO 6400 sots are the best I have seen on any APS-C sensor.

Cheers

ISO 6400 is actually ISO 3200 on Fuji X100s

Anyone recall prices of digicams 10years ago.
In three years FF digital mirrorless will be around £1500.

Ever since the Merril Foveon Sensor
Sigma's new lenses have upped their game simply because the Merrill Sensor shows up flaws in lens design unlike anyother sensor.

On article Just Posted: Ricoh GR preview (159 comments in total)

There was sufficient body girth (looking at handgrip) to put F2.
Maybe even F1.8 with a litte extra portrusion that the phtographers this is aimed at would been fine with .. what a camera that woud have been.
