  • The patent's no good. Judging from the first drawing, Tex Avery established prior art on this concept decades ago!

  • A few years ago I laughed when a friend said nobody would be shooting stills by 2015. Looking around at NAB and CES, I now think he only got the date part wrong. Give it another 5 or 10 years and...

  • This technology is developing much faster than a corresponding aesthetic of how to use it. So far, I have seen very few pieces where such footage was of much story telling use, or where it...

  • A small tear for dear old Calumet.

    Bought all my studio gear and lab processing equipment from them in the early 60's. They got started by picking up a lot of nice equipment designs from Kodak as...

  • Maybe staying at 12mp has some payoff in the high ISO noise department.

    Let's not forget the Canon 1DX is "only" 18 megapixels, and Nikon's new D4S is "only" 16 megapixels. Both those cameras...

  • It will be another year before 4K is comfortable to use in even professional editing environments. The real killer feature on this camera is 1080 60P at 200 mbps. That's got to look fabulous on...

  • Commented on Canon EOS 70D Review preview

    I was handed a 70D to shoot videos at an art reception. The autofocus is nothing short of amazing! Almost no hunting at all, it hit the mark every time, and when somebody walked into the scene at...

  • I like a single adapter attached to the camera. Specifically, I like the moved-forward tripod mount on the Metabones adapter, makes me feel like I'm not twisting the heck out of the little A7...

  • Hi! Considering jumping the D800e ship for an A7R.But I'm getting very ambiguous indications about raw image quality from the sample files I can find. On the one hand, I have seen impressive jpegs...
  • I have noticed that I can pull more shadow detail out of D800 jpegs, than I can out of my 5D Mark II raw files. But don't anybody go shooting jpegs on their 800, it just ain't right.I used to...
  • OK, thanks for the replies folks! On the BHPhoto site, the Bower write up is dodgy about whether or not it allows for normal in-camera f-stop and exposure control, with the exposure being set while...
  • I'm wondering if there is any grading difference between the Samyang, Rokinon, and Bower versions of the well known 35mm f1.4 lens. Do they grade these lenses at the factory, and then assign a...
  • Commented on Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview

    Can anybody characterize the amount of vibration introduced by the A7R "noisy shutter?"

    I shoot stitched panormas with very long lenses, where mirror vibration from my present camera bodies is a...

  • If I were a Sony exec I would be thinking long and hard about ever again giving dpreview a camera before the release date.

  • Commented on Pastel Sky in the Pastel Colors challenge

    Superb image, should have received first place.

  • In photographic circles we sort of got over the megapixel obsession. Now it looks like phones have taken over that disease. I guess among the general public there is still a good supply of...
