On Sony RX100 IV compact shoots 4k, uses a stacked sensor article (310 comments in total)
In reply to:

Pat Cullinan Jr: Is the RX100 IV a mere selling-point horse?

Is it worth the $150 uplift?

MK3 probably just as boring... taking photographs (with any camera)... now that is exciting!

nerd2: So they just dissuaded people from buying their top camera+top lens combo which weighs MORE than equivalent DSLR setup. Awesome marketing :D

Good luck shooting your f5.6 at f2.8. Would be great if you provided us with these images.

Paul Petersen: Just marketing BS if a DSLR shooter wants to travel lighter just add one of the latest affordable Nikons or Canons, way lighter than what they show in the mocumentury. There are plenty of lighter lenses to uses and you still can use all their good big stuff.

Top glass m43 is a lot smaller then top 35mm glass, cheaper m43 glass is a lot smaller then cheaper 35mm glass... simple fact of life.

On Hands-on with new Olympus PRO 8mm and 7-14mm lenses article (285 comments in total)
In reply to:

StefanD: About " the new 7-14mm wideangle zoom (on the left in this picture) is considerable smaller and lighter than full-frame equivalents":

Compared to the Canon 16-35 F4, it isn't that much lighter or smaller:
Weight: 534 g. vs 615 g.
Diameter: 79 mm. vs 82.6 mm.
Length: 106 mm. vs 112.8 mm.
(a 7-14 2.8 on m43 is comparable to a 14-28 5.6 on FF)

Although I would love to see lenses that are much lighter and smaller than my full lframe Canon lenses, I don't see it happen yet...

Try to shoot at f2.8 with your f4 ff lens... hmmm... you can't? Maybe because it is not equivalent.... Oh.... and the equivalent ff lens is... yep.... probably twice as large, heavy and pricey.

But hey... You don't wanna hear that. So... just have fun shooting at f2.8 with your f4 ff lenses.

It's equivalent is an f2.8 FF sister lens... not an f4...

I upgraded from FF film to APS-C digital to m4/3... constantly getting better image quality and easier to handle equipment.

In reply to:

pen araneae: I will give this top vote if it was in the challenge. The musical bench flanked by two French doors at least brings some cheer in this suitably dreary picture.

Thanks! I am glad I provided a worthy example.

pocoloco: A micro SD is a must... but Android does not support that anymore... yeah... you can plug in one, but apps cannot share data so images shot cannot be modified/written to the micro SD... as long as Google does not fix this... all Android phones are just phones.... nothing more... it becomes very cumbersome to use them for anything else....

Latest android disallows app to write data to microsd, except for private app folder. So, as example, I installed Vignette, but I cannot configure Vignette to write to a folder on micro SD of my choosing. So, it then writes to internal memory (if there is space). If I want to move the images, let'ssay I use ES explorer, mmm... it can't copy the images from internal memory to a folder of my choosing.... So stock camera app can write to micro sd... i browse the images as example with QuickPic... i want to delete one.... mmm.... QuickPic can't do that.. blocked by Google...

This is like common knowledge guys... alot of people are upset about it... Google just degraded our powerfull handsets to simple phones..

On Cat-o-graphy 1 challenge (3 comments in total)

I just noticed the rule "no homes", so I guess that is why my photo got dq'ed. Ok.... can live with that... but as you noticed... how the actual dq was executed... that can be approved.

If you are so anti-social and incapable of normal communication, you should not be hosting any challenge. Just DQ'ing at random, not providing any reason... well... how would you call that if someone did that to you?

You could argue that humans are just mamals and part of the natural world as well... these two certainly seem to be roaming around free :)
