On Connect post Sony patents contact lens camera with blink-triggered shutter (11 comments in total)

The NSA has had these since 1952, but they used really small rolls of film.

In reply to:

AKH: Image quality looks fine for a phone.

Unfortunately recent phones from most brands uses the amateur 4/3 format (and 16/9) which is really disappointing.

Earlier models of the Lumia series also had the professional 3/2 format which could easily be added in software. Not sure why we can't have that format any longer.

Usually you can set the ratio to the one you like. There's nothing "professional" about 3:2 in itself and it's kind of crappy for portraits.

Gotta say, that was impressive. Awesome job.

That's the worst ISO 3 million performance I've ever seen.

StephaneB: Today is sad day.

This is the confirmation there is not any development planned for that outstanding software. Either the developers left or they've been fired already.

This thing is dead now. Expect it to follow Picasa.

Google is turning into a graveyard.

Looks like it would come in handy for a dermatologist, especially combined with the A7RII.

On article Flickr makes Auto-Uploadr tool a Pro-account exclusive (97 comments in total)

Never saw much of a reason to use it, even as a "pro" user. I do like Flickr since it's place where people talk about the images. without getting into gear digressions.

On article UPDATED: CP+ 2016: shooting the Pentax K-1 in Yokohama (374 comments in total)
In reply to:

(unknown member): DPR had DNG raw samples for some time. Ricoh asked DPR to remove the files and there even was a separate post by DPR about that but it also was removed soon. Does anyone know what happened, why Ricoh had no problems initially and later decided to remove the files?

I'm sure many of us have them downloaded. I have a few. It might be because even with the embedded profile they still aren't fully supported by the software. Not sure.

On article UPDATED: Sony a6300 real-world samples (368 comments in total)

I like the water fountain shot in the hallway. Most of the outdoor action shots have a soft, "not quite" look to them. Almost appears to be shutter shock, but could also just be that focus did not catch, or the shutter was not fast enough, or lens IS did something weird....

On Connect post Quick review: Nextbit Robin camera (44 comments in total)

I guess it's one of those inevitable ideas. Seems like a service that could go out of business too.

The camera looks not bad for a smartphone.

That really seems to help the greens. Love the look.

jkrumm: Barney, maybe you know the answer to this question. Does the K mount Sigma 35 Art lens cover the full frame?

If that's the case then Sigma still makes nine K mount DG lenses that will work on the K1, but the 35 1.4 is the only newish one. Good to know if considering the camera.

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 First Impressions Review (972 comments in total)

I'm mostly curious how the Sigma Art lenses work with this. I know the 35 1.4 comes in K mount. Have not heard about some of the newer ones, like the 24-35 f2.

This post makes me wonder why DPR doesn't have a medium format forum. Would be a fun place for some of us to ooh and aah over images, at least.

J A C S: Pretty bland for 50mp MF. The castle shot is a bit lacking in detail, sharpened or not. The horse shot is fine, not counting the blown highlights.

#10 has very pleasant colors.

Look at the cable running up the side of the castle. Any more detail would be molecular.

The overall look of the images is pretty awesome. Looks like a "fine art" machine.

piratejabez: I love how there's more backlash here about seeing "Oh, wow!" in the title than there is actual discussion of the camera... That's what I get for reading the comments section :)

Since there is no exclamation point, you can even interpret it as sarcasm. Oh wow

In reply to:

Tim Skrastins: Can someone explain to me why there is shutter blackout to begin with? This is a mirrorless camera right? What is blacking out the electronic view? When I pull the lens off, there is just a sensor there...no shutter, no mirror.

(PS - I have an A6000 and love it...great little travel/family/fun camera when I'm not shooting my D800 for work).

The camera is basically taking the time to "swallow" the image. From what I understand the sensor has to be "blanked to be read" (borrowing an answer from Luminous Landscape). So Sony is either doing it all so quickly we don't notice, or doing it some other way.
