On Inside a church challenge (7 comments in total)
In reply to:

ForrestGump: I've just disqualified 15 entries. 11 of them were disqualified because pics had longer edge over 3000 pixel, which is not allowed. It's not pleasant, even 'cause I disqualified some really terrific pictures. Please be more careful!!

No I am not upset, my entry is there :). I just ask the hoster to make it clear in the description, which will make it much easier to see and we will not end up with 15 disqualified entries

Cheng Bao: Do you have shadow lifting test?
Since 750D/760D uses apparently differently packaged sensors, which hints it comes from a brand new fab lines. So, maybe DR is improved to modern standard

The same story as 7d2.

Next time, when you host a challenge, please make it clear in the main part of the description of the challenge, not in the full rules part, which I just found out how to look up.

Beckler8: Consider this a poor man's RX10. Constant f/2.8 is nice. But personally I can't consider larger cameras like this that don't have 4K - something that will very soon be as standard as 1080p.

4k will never be a standard, as blueray wasn't! Remember my words ;)

Stellar is not about the wood, it is about the glue!!! Hasselblad uses a glue that comes from the lunar surface, the same glue that canon used yesterday to glue their logo on the XC10 announced yesterday.

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (810 comments in total)

Instead of compensating loss of sales with the boost in prices, you may think of producing more competitive products, dear Canon. People learn, yes slowly, but they do. My estimate as an economist for the end of the life cycle for Canon is 8-10 years. same goes to Nikon. Sorry fanboys.

I don't think it is a good decision to enter the tele market without IS(VR) and AF.
For wide angle you can afford non VR and MF lens, but here I can't see anyone prefering this over Tamron 90mm VC, considering the street price is very close.

On Kowa announces pricing for three Micro Four Thirds lens article (148 comments in total)
In reply to:

aramgrg: So why should they be competitive?
Because of bulky and heavy construction? In particular, why will someone consider say 25 1.8 instead of well regarded PL 25 1.4?
I know, they are all metal, but how many times you damaged your lens because of plastic construction?

Yes, that is true, I never ever shoot video on any of my DSLR :)
Because I by default assume that legacy lenses are super cheap. However, Samyang makes manual cine lenses cheaper.
Anyways, I suspect the market size for these guys is supposed to be super small.

Ok, let's assume they are video lenses, then the critical sharpness doesn't matter even more and the price makes those even more redundant. With manual focus and clickless aperture, SLR is always there, with 10% of the price.

No remark on what are the equivalent apertures for half-cut lenses?

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2962 comments in total)
In reply to:

ozturert: It will sell like hot cakes. Some people who say "DR is bad" have no idea what DR is. In a normal print or on a regular IPS monitor, it's extremely difficult if not impossible to see the difference in DR between 5DMarkIII and D800. You need to apply +3EV or more to both RAWs or brighten shadows a lot to see the difference.
Canon's 5DMarkIII, 7D MII and 1D's are very intuitive and simple to use. Menus are logical, buttons are well placed, operation is smooth, bodies are solid, AF systems are one of the best, just like D810 and D4s are.
Get 5DsR, some primes, 11-24mm f4, 24-70mm f2.8LII, 70-200mm f2.8 L IS II, and you wil get excellent 50MP files and this set is much more mobile than medium formats. Now try to find an equivalent set in medium format. Although Hasselblad would give you better files, the difference would not be huge when you attach an Otus to 5DsR. Or mount a Sigma 50mm f1.4 A and be done.
Before jumping and screaming, note that I say "medium format files would be better".

Here you go

Both can be considered as crop versions of the sensors from d800 and 5Ds

"In a normal print or on a regular IPS monitor, it's extremely difficult if not impossible to see the difference in DR between 5DMarkIII and D800."

In a normal print or regular IPS display you don't need 50MP.

In reply to:

Rick Knepper: It was improved, relatively speaking. A sensor with twice the pixels has the same DR as the 5D3 = improved.

Yes, if is is in pixel level.
However, you can't have pixel level noise similar to 70d(or 7d2) and improved DR in pixel level.

In reply to:

Lensjoy: Hey, Canon (and Nikon). Let me tell you what I want in a camera besides megapixels. With all the effort spent fighting a battle for the resolution king, I'd rather see these improvements:

Virtual depth-of-field indicator calculated from lens data, since zooms and many prime lenses don't have it any more.

Less noise at high ISO. I want better pixels, not more of them to fill up hard drives.

Focus bracketing with in-camera lossless compression so a stack of images doesn't take up a lot of storage.

GPS.

Wider dynamic range.

Better RAW architecture for custom ICC profiling.

Faster frame rate for wildlife and action shots.

Improved autofocus. Yes, these cameras are pretty good, but much more can be done here.

Switchable anti-moire (use the sensor cleaning vibrator to shake the sensor during exposure.)

Dual white balance (highlights and shadows) so that both ends of the dynamic range are neutralized. That's the way our eyes work.

Return back in 10 years
