chiane: Why are all DPR members liberal Marxists who can't even comment about the actual case without some diatribe about wealth redistribution and workers rights, and blah, blah, blah? When someone asks for your opinion on creating a socialist Utopia, we'll let you know at that time.

Leave nazis in peace, besides this is not the place to talk politics.

I'm French and you're wrong, it does not mean "died laughing", but yes "laughing out loud", don't translate like a computer ! The literal translation means nothing.

JamesD28: If the Nikon D3S could produce unparalleled low-light results back in 2009, and processors and sensors have come a long way in those 4½ years, then I should hope that ISO 102,400 on the A7S is very usable. And ISO 409,600 at a push, at least.

Mike, do you remember that Sony makes the D800 sensor ??
Maybe with some Canon quirks but still.

On AP cuts ties with Pulitzer-winning photographer article (167 comments in total)

The mere act of taking a picture in itself is already an alteration of reality (angle of view, aim, exposition...), if cloning is strictly forbidden, one could just take more pictures to get the one that fits the desired intent.

In this particular case, it's difficult to know if cloning out the camera should have been done or not, we don't know the context.
- has the picture been staged ?
- or on the contrary, was the camera there because of mere bad luck ?
What matters is to convey the reality, not if the picture was altered or not.

There are 3 possibilities:
- you edit the picture to better convey what happened there.
- you don't edit edit the picture even if it gives a false view on what happened.
- you don't share the picture to the world.

Here the photographer should have submitted both versions alongside, and described accurately the context.

On French newspaper publishes issue with no photos article (208 comments in total)
In reply to:

nicoboston: The purpose was also to send a big "ENOUGH" following recurrent racism issues in France lately (as the country is more or less falling appart, it's very tempting to blame others).
Good photographers and photojournalists are not in danger. Talented people will always exist. They have to adapt. It won't be easy, but they have to! Everybody loves nice images. Now everyone can capture decent images with good cameras and phones... If everyone had access to good violins and pianos, it would be more difficult to become a recognized musician. It's competition... Don't give up, photographers ! Newspapers will disappear, you won't ;-)

If you did live in France, you would know that indeed the situation is becoming unbearable with muslims !

But we should discuss photography and not politics here...

In reply to:

limlh: Canon admits that the sensor may be useful for medical and security purposes. Unlikely to see it in digital camera. I think for sensitivity in digital imaging to take a big step forward, a new base material for sensor like Graphene would be needed. In fact, it may be more practical for sensor makers to use Graphene in their current process than making organic sensor, which Fujifilm is very likely to use in the next iteration of the X-series cameras.

Intel just announced that graphene processors will be made around 2020, that doesn't mean big processors though !

Way overpriced ! The 70D costs 1200 USD...
A used D600 costs 1500 !

Just interesting for people that have many m43 lenses already.

In reply to:

pancromat: my highest respect to the sigma engineers for this exceptional lens, but from my point of view it makes absolutely no sense. i stay with the APS-C sized sensor, because i want a good compromise between IQ, handling and compact size of the "package", my canon 60D with a tamron 17-50 (no VC, trusted, lasted over three bodies) comes close to this. if i accept to carry a lens this big, and to carry it with comfort you need the larger camera bodies, i would go FF. in that zoomrange there is no creative benefit from 1.8, i'm pretty sure. so a nice compact 2.8/17-55 or so with that excellent IQ would have exhilarated me much more.

Well, that you don't need the lens, doesn't make the lens less useful for others.

In reply to:

imsabbel: I always wonder about the whole APS 1.8 vs FF 2.8 equivalency:

Are FF sensors as sensitive as APS-C, per mm^2? Because the equivalency only works if they are.

And I am not sure about that, seeing that APS-C outsells FF by more than an order of magnitude and correspondingly, the processes would be more optimized...

Yes 200 ISO is 200 ISO no matter the sensor size (even if there are discrepancies between brands), but the noise is different.

FF sensors are about as sensitive per mm² as APS-C sensors because if you look at DXO Mark results, the ISO performance is proportionate to the sensor surface (for same generation sensors of course).
