urix: What did you mean with "3EV at the center" of low-lit scene? Is it correct to assume that the center illumination is 20 lx? Thanks.

@yabokkie
Really? Illumination of 25-30 lux can be learned from EXIF data.

TWIZEEL: I know the way - OVERPRICED product never sells. Even 600 bucks for conveyor style of production for lens still expencive. 20 years ago hand-adjusted on optical bench Carl Zeiss was cheaper.

But 20 years ago the Buck has been much more valuable ;)

In reply to:

Mike Cialowicz: Odd... they claim it has front and rear control dials, but all I see is a rear dial. Is the front dial the toothed thing surrounding the shutter button? Is that awkward to use?

Mike, did you count the dial around a shutter release button?

Yes, sir. A Digicam like Sony RX100-II is more capable than Lumia 1020, giving a better sensor, a tilting screen, etc. But it is dedicated photo tool which price tag is similar to the one of the multi-purpose Lumia. Except that, we are unlikely to find a dozen of P&S digicams, justifying easily the fuss with a separate photo gadget.

DSLRs are in a diferent league. But not all ILCs of course. Personally, I had a chance to play with RX100 and NEX-6 side by side at a local store yesterday. It's all about an optics, but I find the RX100 to focus quicker and more reliably at any of its focal lengths than the NEX with conventional kit lenses. Not to mention size difference.

In reply to:

kewlguy: Why is the 24-70/4 IS much more expensive than 24-105/4 IS? The new zoom better be as good as the best primes! But then it's still f/4...

Because 24-70/2.8 II is much more expensive than 24-70/2.8
:-)

These RRPs would be ok only if Canon is going to follow the Sigma's way. Compare Sigma 24-70 prices: $1400 MSRP and the street prices being less than $900.

In reply to:

kevin_r: I second GRAFLI:
Why on earth didn't they put Windows 7.8 or even Windows 8 or Android on this phone?
Whatever the stupid reason - probably political infighting in the company - I hope they put the same camera or better into the Lumina 950/1000 with dual core processor and Windows 8.

PureView has a special purpose chip processing all photo/video from the camera. They have written lots of code on C/C++ to support it. Windows Phone 7 requires applications to be written in C#. Why bother to rewrite this software if Windows Phone 8 supports native applications? I guess they'll port it to WP8 and we will see Lumia PureView before the end of the year (next year?). Just some thoughts :)

doctorxring: This thing sure looks a lot like my Sony SAL 18-250. Has an HSM motor though.

You're wrong. Tamron and Sony 18-250 ultrazooms both have maximum aperture of f/6.3 at the long end.

In reply to:

wayoutwest: I still don't feel the need to upgrade from my 550D. I'm more interested in mirrorless cameras with better video quality now. Canon have been a disappointment so far this year, with a large sensor compact that's much too big, the 5DMKIII and this one that's not doing it for me. The 40mm pancake is too close in focal length to the the 50mm f1.8 I already have. I'd like a 28mm or 24mm pancake.

Sure, 22-25 mm EF-S pancake with at least F2.8, better F2.0 would be a killer!

urix: Is there a way to distinguish a camera with the modified sensor from a camera with the original one? E.g. by serial No.?

To Louis_Dobson: Thanx, Cap :)
I'd like to know it before I start shooting.

On First Impressions: Using the Nikon D800 article (311 comments in total)

WOW! The photo at a poorly lightened bar shows a crazy exposure: -13.33 Lv, i.e. more than 1.5 hours of exposure @ iso100 and f/4! :-P
Please fix shutter speeds shown at the image subscripts. They are reciprocal (e.g. 25 sec instead of 1/25 and so on).

In reply to:

ogl: Why this 75/1.8 is so big?

Maybe for it is an MSC lens with onboard focusing motor?
BTW I think this 75/1.8 will be about 60 mm x 70 mm (D x L).

On CES 2012: Sigma stand report article (25 comments in total)
In reply to:

SteveNunez: I'd like to see Sigma also support the other lens mounts such as Samsung NX, Pentax Q, the new Fuji mount etc as less expensive alternates to the OEM offerings. It seems as if only m4/3 and NEX systems are supported.
(read Samsung has not opened their lens mount specs to outside lens makers, shame.)
Thumbs up to Sigma for supporting these new popular standards.

+1 to iudex
One more thing: NX has flange-back distance of 25.5 mm while mFT and E have 20 and 18 mm, respectively. Would the Sigma 30/2.8 design fit this requirement?

There is 'The Art of HDR Photography, part 4' in the 'Articles: Photo Techniques' category, but you won't find there previous chapters of this multi-part text. Moreover, the only way to read them is to search the site for them. Oops! They live in 'Learn: Guides' section which is inaccessible from the main page.

I think you should reorganize your old articles to fill up this new section.

Well done! Thanks you :)
