On CP+ 2014: Fujifilm shows new 50mm teleconverter for X100S news story (183 comments in total)
In reply to:

AshMills: "minimum aperture not affected" - yes, but what about MAXIMUM aperture?

gordon, read, and understand this and know that you are wrong.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aperture

For example, did you know that f isn't aperture, but focal length?

Metering the scene and applying some kind of crop factor would overexpose the image.

In reply to:

Mattersburger: That's a lot of metal & glass to get to an f2 normal.

Aperture is not the hole where the blades are, but the hole at the FRONT. What is normally called the aperture is actually the diaphragm that limits the effective aperture by limiting the effective overall aperture size, as seen from the front.

A teleconverter reduces the aperture because it goes on the back of the lens while the overall size of the aperture of the lens doesn't change, but the focal length does. This is why aperture is actually written in f/x where f is focal length.

As this converter has a larger front element, the possibility of keeping the aperture at f2 remains.

Slow to start, slow to focus, bad battery: mirrorless.

On Fujifilm X-T1 Real-world Samples Gallery news story (187 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just a Photographer: Too bad these 'real world' samples were made by a bad photographer.
With these pictures shown you can't judge the camera - what a missed chance.

@Barney

I WAS going to write something really nice, like how I find the samples with good light actually quite nice, and how you can't just sit around the office waiting for nice light.

But you lose points because there are no bar photos - or wouldn't the Fuji focus ;)

forpetessake: The Pentax has great colors. Sony has reasonably good colors. The rest? -- just your average P&S.

Best I've seen is Fuji - and this from a dedicated Nikon shooter!

justinwonnacott: This kind of content is nothing but click bait . When we "pay" to use this site.... by selling our eyeballs to the advertisers it is a shame that our attention goes for such a low price. I am increasingly visiting other sources for real news and technical information to avoid this kind of meaningless bumpf.

@onlooker

The one with the smallest market share and the other one that is super slow. I'll say no more.

I frankly enjoy this meaningless bumpf. One camera I'll never own takes it all, and one that grates on my nerves gets a win.

Deny, delay, obfuscate. Never, ever, admit to a problem.

On Sony Alpha 7 Review preview (1594 comments in total)
In reply to:

Avobanana: Fair points are made about ergonomics and speed. But the reviewer is clearly biased.

But like many others I cannot understand the persistent negative undertone and bias against the camera. One of the camera's biggest strength is the image quality in RAW mode and yet the reviewer chose to chime on and on about the JPEG quality. In the EM1 review, the reviewer praises the impressive image quality which isn't even in the same league. They cost almost the same, no?

Either Dpreview is losing its objectivity or something shady is going on.

What do you mean bias? They gave it a silver award.

With all those "cons" I'm surprised it got a silver.

Reading the review makes me think it's a piece of junk.

Sarge_: As a professional photographer who shoots a lot of architecture and landscapes, I wish someone would come out with something affordable in medium format. No pricing, but I'm guessing this is not the product I'm wishing for...

D800 or A7r not enough?

As someone who has both, the Df build quality is better than the lauded x100s.

WolfyWho: I've been contemplating purchasing this lens for some time because of it's quality and great price of $899. I'm glad I waited because I got in on an Amazon.com Lightning Deal the other day and purchased it for only $699. WOW!

That's a great deal. I paid full price and even then it's worth every penny.

H1brid: These pictures are a pile of bull.
Judging by these, we're still 20-30 years back.
I understand that he's trying to paint a grim picture but still.
Even an image search on Google will show you a more realistic view.
We don't live in the stone age, he only took pictures in deserted/almost deserted rural areas.

H1brid. People go far and wide to capture "classic" scenes.
People regularly drive for hours to take a couple of shots of rusty cars on Route 66.

I wouldn't take it as an insult.
