WayneHuangPhoto: $3,400? Wow. I'll just get a Samyang when they release their own FF UWA prime.

I'm aware of the 14mm Samyang. What they don't have is a rectilinear 11mm or 12mm prime, but I do see that coming as they already make them for mirrorless formats (a 10mm and 12mm)

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2340 comments in total)

WayneHuangPhoto: The ISO specs on these new bodies are a disappointment. Give it a brand new 50 mp sensor, but handicap the ISO range for the sake of market segmentation (i.e. not encroaching on 5D MKIII territory), and sell it as a specialist's camera for portrait and landscape. I'm not a Canon hater. I shoot Canon myself and have invested a lot into their system, but I will not be upgrading for this reason.

Admittedly it is a luxury these days to have 6400+ ISO that can produce images that are still of usable quality, but this is what the current market expects of a dslr at this price range. This is why we have cameras like the 5D mkIII or the Nikon D750/810. While I don't disagree that portrait/landscape is a huge potential market, I still think handicapping the camera so that it, for example, lacks flexibility in capturing night time and milky way landscapes, makes no sense.

On Canon's Q4 earnings report shows camera sales are down article (315 comments in total)

Market over-saturation, higher overall quality in dslrs resulting in consumers hanging onto their cameras longer, and declining consumer demand.

@Dougbm_2
I got the Rokinon/Samyang 12mm f/2 for my Fuji X-E2 recently and have been thoroughly impressed by the sharpness and overall IQ even wide open. If their Nikon mount (at f2.8) is as good, that along with another less-wide prime is a more cost-effective option that doesn't sacrifice IQ.

Which Nikon official will commit seppuku over this blunder?

@BarnET Thanks for the suggestion, but I've read/seen that the autofocus with metabones adapter slows down AF a lot. A deal-breaker for me.

On Readers' Showcase: Documentary and Street photography article (112 comments in total)

Some good shots here, but I also do see a lot of people behind cameras too shy to get up close in someone's face, which is to say there is a lot of 'sameness' to the voyeuristic/candid approach of photographing a subject unaware.

Everyone here knows everything about cameras and the camera industry, and has a valid opinion based on facts and observation, rather than blind brand loyalty or fanboy bias.

You call it retro, other people call it going back to the basics of camera form and function.

Svetoslav Popov: This is really pointless, because it doesn't have anything that warrant the use of this technique. On quick glance, everything could've been made with normal filming tech. Exept the skateboarder and the doves. But the pans are so fast that you can't really see the parallax changing in the motion freeze. A waste of resources.

[EDIT] Note to myself: pigeons =|= doves, duhh...

How about experimenting with something that's never been done before, as a point and purpose in itself? I am sure the people who came up with this concept are self-critical and intelligent enough to see that there is room for improvement.

balios: Sneaky. They've split the images into a checker-board pattern. A right-click save-as only gets you a tiny portion of the image. Adding to my Monet desktop backgrounds is going to take some work...

Not sneaky. It's designed this way to load and navigate around the entire image faster than a jpg, and to have the best appearance at any zoom level.

On Light Field Cameras - Focusing on the Future article (135 comments in total)

The future is sensors that can 'see' in almost complete darkness, not this gimmick. It's cool, but I don't think consumers care as much.

RPJG: Lovely, and a nice summary of the workflow!

Does anyone have an idea why he might use After Effects? As far as I know, Premiere Pro can do all of the things he's listed, i.e. "specify the frame rate of the video, trim the video if needed, stabilize hyper-lapses, and export your video into a file that can be read on other computers or editing programs"?

In Premiere Pro (don't know about Elements), you can also change preview quality and keyframing is as simple and intuitive to use as AE. You can't mask in Premiere though as it's not built for compositing.

fdfgdfgdgf: "DSLRs can capture the moment better than mirrorless, because you're viewing directly, not through an LCD"

That was a good one

I don't know if you were being sarcastic, but all EVFs on the market have a lag that I can't tolerate when shooting. I totally agree with this statement.
