On Classic photographs recreated in Lego article (118 comments in total)

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 Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows article (1396 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.

On Hands-on with the Olympus Stylus 1 article (47 comments in total)

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 Niki Feijen's haunting images of abandoned houses article (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 Fujifilm X100S Review preview (489 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.

In reply to:

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.

On Fujifilm X-M1 Preview preview (226 comments in total)

I gave up on nex3, nex5, OMD as they felt like techtoys.
Bought J1 best for action.
EOS M uerrrgh.
Passed on X10, seriously considered X20.

Stayed with my E-P1 , one of the most soulful digital cameras ive ever had.

X-M1 may well be the camera to replace my E-P1

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.

This on Fuji XE2 (with hybrid pahse dectect) would be a stunner.

On Just Posted: Ricoh GR preview article (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.

Would the OMD like 5 axis Image Stabilisation helped ?

On Just posted: Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM lens review article (182 comments in total)

Sensor in SD1/M, DP1M, DP2M made Sigma produce lenses good enough for the sensor.
Perhaps as no other current 35mm sensor (maybe even some MF sensor) due to 3 layers lens imperfections are shown up by the current Foveon.

We can expect more lenses of the same quality.

Try keeping this baby steady at 300 (450) whilst following action or birding, wildlife . More so in lower light.
After lots of blurry photos you will wonder why you bought it.

For the price Nikon J1 + 10-100 will get you far more keepers.
