Digital Imaging Technician: I bet FV-5 is based on the L Camera code, because it has exactly the same problem as L Camera with manual focus. There is no infinity focus. If I set the manual focus to the furthest possible it still just focuses a couple of meters a way (or closer than that) and things further away are not in focus at all.

Manual infinity focus could have real potential with camera phones as DOF is crazy. Basically you could set it to infinity and have focus from something quite close to something really distant. The AF on my Nexus 5 always troubles me (hunting) and it's slow as molasses.

Please fix manual infinity focus and I'll buy it (I actually bought it, but refunded because of this)!

Here's a pro tip: Set your focus to infinity with AF, then turn AF off and don't touch focus again, unless you're doing macro. Like you said, phones have crazy DOF and don't need focusing at all for non-macro shots. Everything is in focus all the time. AF is utterly useless on phones and will just make you miss shots.

fotokeena: I have been wishing for Hasselblad to make such a back that can integrate with the V system seamlessly for a long time, looks like they finally did it. Now owners can use their well built bodies and lenses, as well as prism finders, I am glad that they finally recognize there are still a lot of people hanging on to their old"golden standard" system, and it's value.

Great job Hasselblad, even thought I can't afford the price, how about making a barebones version for $5K to $6K? for the non-profit making photographers.

How's life under a rock been?

For lowlight 4K, the A7S sure will beat a GH4. Then again, you'll need an external recorder with the Sony, while the Panasonic does it internally.

I've been using VSCO with Photoshop for a few years now. Time to look at DPP again. I always liked the ability to change profiles in DPP, compared to other programs. You can get a preview of B&W in-camera and then do a more elaborate B&W conversion from a color photo.

Anyone have a good educated guess if this will work with the EF50/1.2L?

Thanks to SLR Magic for stepping up and doing this. I bought my Iscorama in april 2009 and the amount of people wanting to buy it from me has been insane. Quite astonishing considering how crap that lens is. One of my anamorphic photos on Flickr is the most viewed of my photos, day after day for nearly five years now.

On New anamorphic adapter lens for iPhone 5/5S post (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

tkbslc: If a product is not for you, you could always, oh, I don't know,... Not buy it?

Complaining about a niche product for something you have no interest in seems strange.

The face palm comes in when you realize it's for a cell phone. There's a huge gap in the low budget DSLR anamorphic lens market. Interest and demand for these cheaper lenses is enormous, supply is painful. Even if you score a lens for several hundred dollars, it's probably crap (in all honesty). If you can raise 30k for a toy, you can probably raise ten times that for a serious budget alternative for DSLRs.

Thank God it's not for DSLRs. Now my really shitty anamorphic Isco from the 60s will keep its value.

As a smart phone, the PowerShot seems slightly limited to me. As a camera, the Nokia is really great and on par with alot of these cheap compacts.

lightsculpture: All Nokia had to do was to update the OS of the original 808 and release it a few months after it was first launched.

Instead they took a very long time, frustrating customers and giving time for competitors to react, only to release a product which is.. well.. slimmer but inferior to the 808. Inferior in the main aspect that excites pureview users in the first place - the camera. By the way, the 1020 is still rather bulky and heavy when compared to its competitors.

I guess this is expected from a guy who engineered his own return to Microsoft (with a huge payout) at the expense of the company he is supposed to be turning around. RIP Nokia... You got stabbed by the Ambulance medic who was supposed to be resuscitating you.

Pure View R&D started some five years before Nokia had any intentions of going with WP. It's not just a case of "updating the OS", when the hardware is for something entirely different. Trying to get WP working in the 808, now that would've frustrated customers.

Why is there a line of saturation in the (1020) asian girl's face?

On DxOMark investigates lenses for the Nikon D7100 article (23 comments in total)

It's Nikon tested by DxG Balls, so expect a 100% score on everything.

HarrieD7000: So much fuzz for these crappy pictures? I use a phone to make my calls and a camera to make pictures. These "tests" look to me as a cheap kind of advertisement.
It is a pity DPR can't make more articles with real camera's.

On my latest trip I took a ton of photos with my 5D, but even more with my Lumia 900. Waiting for the 1020 now.

Large sensor, so the light field tech actually is useful. Higher resolution, comes with a larger sensor and good post processing software. Then I'm interested.

Nokia was good phone long time ago!

Lucky for us, Nokia are using those pixels wisely, compared to the rest.

Yeah, the internet will suddenly flood with photos that look the same. All I can think of is Picard facepalm.

Very creative and funny. Extremely consistently and well exposed too.

I bought a 4x5 in 2006 and converted a closet into a darkroom. I got tired of coming home with 300 raw files, unloading into the computer and then browsing through them.
