LionelA: In the 80s 90s commodore and atari fanboys where always discusing whose the best while PCs (which were horrible computer compare to the others) took the business sector then the homebase one, both atari and commodore went out of buisness....remainds me of sony, canon, nikon etc...always discusing whose the best without knowing that apple and samsung are taking over the market....first the cellphone market then the camera one indeed......and lets get real as tecnology moves on it wont get any better for camera companies
in 20 years my D800 will still take great pictures (if it hasnt broken), the games on my Amiga A1200 are a bag of crap.
more tired old small sensor bodies. Don't Fuji realise they might have enough of them on the market now?
Richt2000: Why can't American websites dare say "happy Christmas"?When its Holi people say happy Holi, when its Eid, people say Eid Mubarak, so we can't people say Happy Christmas?
"wherever possible i try to keep religion out of DPReview."
in the same way as prompt camera reviews?
marrc: That's why I am going back to film
yeah, all the hair, scratches, dust marks are so much better :)
The Davinator: I've been enjoying my 645Z for a few months now. It is a fantastic tool that gives 4x5 film a serious run for its money. Once you get used to its files for landscape, 35mm FF seems puny in comparison.
i shoot 5x4 and youre talking crap
Dan Wagner: Well, this sucks -- tried to submit my photos -- and although there seems to be a post made less than one hour ago I get the following message: "An error has occurred The requested thread has reached the maximum number of allowed posts. Please contact us if you have any questions.?"
Of course there is no link to contacted them. Anyone know what's up?
yep, thanks to some talentless snapper who filled it up.
is there no submission limit or can we just spam the thread with endless tedious snaps of the same person just at a slightly different angle?
bigdaddave: Numbers 6, 7, 8 and 9 won something?
I must dig out some of my rubbish shots and submit them
well its better than last year, pictures of telephone box roofs and muddy carparks (i kid you not) made it in!

There you go, corrected it for you.
£7 a roll! ah those poor tragic hipsters. I'll carry on buying film for £1 from my local pound store and if i desperately feel the need to get my images looking that crap, i'll just adjust the tone sliders in Lightroom.
tedious drudgery symptomatic of modern "street" photography. Images that say nothing and mean nothing. Oh look, a guy with a suitcase. so what. But its black and white so must be art.
i still cant see the back of the moon. see impossible my foot.
theyre branching out into lens cleaning cloths
Jahled: Typical, just ordered the 750 for work! Mumble
Yeah i wouldnt worry, ive a v750 and am in absolutely no rush for one of these new ones now. All you need extra are some acid etched glass plates to fit in the film holders , resting them on the neg's do a better job of keeping things as flat as possible. They cost next to nothing from any good picture framer who will cut it all to size.
goloby: All I'm asking is for every hobbyist or professional photographer out there that has never tried film to give it a go. Get an old film camera, they are cheap. Most of your digital lenses will work. Buy a few rolls of Provia slide. Or some negative film, Portra, Ektar, Pro400h. Send them to a proper lab for dev and scan. You might be pleasantly surprised.Or if you are into instagram and filters get some cheap film, kodacolor, superia200/400, colorplus 200, vista 200. See where all the hype comes from.Are you a b&w buff? Then you have to try T-Max and Tri-x. There's no substitute.
this. do it. Spend a few quid on a charity shop camera / lens and a roll of film and just try it :)
RobertSigmund: The best method at the moment is copying the negative/slide with the digital camera. Brings better results than scanners and is faster. You need a macro lens of course, and a slide copier. I have the old minolta slide copy unit 1000 for the Minolta ring flash. Very good device.
from what ive seen of various comparisons from peoples blogs whove done this, there is barely any difference between scanner and camera on a 100% crop comparison.
i look forward to the independent tests that will really tell us what the dpi is.
what about the M-A?
can it handle TIFF files yet? That stopped me using previous versions as i couldnt load in scanned in TIFFs from film negatives. Windows Paint loaded them up effortlessly but for some reason C1Pro couldnt.
EssexAsh: good to see some real innovation from a brand.
nothing wrong witha bit of weird
