On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (431 comments in total)
In reply to:

AKH: Hmm. this is a camera I'm potentially interested in. It looks really great, but I'm sorry to say that the image gallery does not in anyway reflect the high Gold Medal rating - it actually cooled my interest in this camera considerably.

After a brief love affair with the X100s (too slow to do ANYTHING) I have to say that the JPEGs out of camera from Fuji are the best I've ever seen. I usually shot Raw + JPEG and ended up keeping the JPEG because it was just so awesome. I've never seen such colors from any other manufacturer.

Richard Franiec: It is really refreshing and encouraging to see the smaller player like Sigma to go toe to toe with the legend like Zeiss. For fraction of the price.
I'm watching recent Sigma's unpretentious approach to their new product with awe.

This lens among the other Art Series lenses should serve as a bucket of an ice water on the heads of disillusioned profiteers from major brands.

@joe6pack

Yes, because Canon and Nikon have a bunch of primes with IS/VR

In reply to:

Jogger: Im sure its a fine lens, but, 50mm is such a boring focal length. Not wide enough to capture the atmosphere and too short for intimate subject captures. The only reason 50mm primes were popular in the past because it was such a simple and cheap lens to manufacture and bundle with SLRs.

@Ron A
I'm not sure this weight puts it in the "walk-around" category for me. Still, I'm probably buying.

On Nikon debuts lighter 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 to DX lens lineup news story (66 comments in total)
In reply to:

InTheMist: I don't see the need to rush out another 18-300.

So, it's a bit cheaper and slower than the "old" one. Am I missing something?

Thanks ppastoris. I can see how this would be important to Nikon's target market.

Ew, Asiangirl's teeth!

Edit: but the 70D processes them worse.

I've been eagerly awaiting on this SB-N10 for my 1 AW1.

I'm concerned about this text: "available in markets outside the U.S."
Luckily I am.

In reply to:

Peiasdf: I really don't see the point of these lenses. If you don't care much about IQ, just get a superzoom compact. If you want some IQ and are willing to pay for it, Sony RX10 is much better buy.... way smaller with way faster lens. I think this is for people that wants a DSLR but don't care to learn how to use a DSLR.

I disagree here. A superzoom has its place.

For me its place is mostly at f/8 on the beach, snow or city in good light with a prime in my pocket.

I'm a stills shooter, but I have to say, that video looks really good.

In reply to:

Daniel Bliss: Will this be the camera that finally forces Nikon off their perch and gets them to offer two or more different sensors in the same body style? Because I think a lot of D700 upgraders are going to find this interesting.

Absolutely, Daniel. Everyone is screaming for a D700 replacement (and 5DIII competitor) as well as a D300 replacement. Why not take one body, let's say the D800 and offer a couple of shuttler/sensor/buffer options and call it a day?

Nikon, you're Product Manager is a dolt. I'm available (PM with 14 years experience).

In reply to:

peevee1: Wait... do I understand that correctly that with only 2.5/5 fps and no OSPDAF and no in-camera 4k Sony absolutely squandered its chance to make an incredible sports camera out of this sensor? With pixel size 5 times bigger than on a6000, the OSPDAF would be just beyond amazing! And with in-camera 4k, you could have just shot high-shutter-speed video instead of series of still shots, even if at "only" 15-20 fps when using the whole sensor (instead of 16:9 crop).
No global shutter, no depth-sensing CDAF (like on GH4), no UHS-II or UHS-I Class 3, nothing special...
As it is, it is a $999 camera, just 1/3 resolution a7R. Sony misses the mark by coupe of inches - again.

I understand your point, but how is it supposed to "make an incredible sports camera" with sluggish AF?

On In photos: Swimming with jellyfish news story (18 comments in total)
In reply to:

q8wizard: just wondering what kind of protection the photographer wear to prevent himself from the jellyfish sting .

The jellyfish live in pools that are are segregated from their stinging ancestors and have evolved no (or vastly weakened) sting due to the lack local predators.

I read all about it on Wikipedia after seeing these great photos. It's an interesting read.

So sad.

I like to think that as long as you're remembered, a part of you lives on. She left plenty behind to remember. Some of the most moving and iconic images of Afghanistan were from her.
