On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (423 comments in total)
In reply to:

Stewart McKInlay: As there is no mention of the new Photos for OSX being able to manipulate photos like Aperture we can only assume a dumbing down as suggested is happening. Most of us who enjoyed Aperture will feel sorely let down. But as usual Apple will expect loyalty from us!

My loyalty just evaporated.

On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (423 comments in total)

Fine. It was the Aperture concept that tempted me to Mac. As much as I love the Mac, and OSX, it is only Aperture that really ties me to it. My next computer is therefore not necessarily a Mac. C'est la vie.

On Lytro Illum in the hands of five leading photographers article (163 comments in total)

So, when will the first light field digital picture frames be available? I liked the effect shown in the photo presentation, but it left me feeling a MacBook Air is not the best place to enjoy these works.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2295 comments in total)

Oh dear. So much for the cost of these lenses. I'm sure they're good, but the purchase price suddenly look questionable....

Edit: BTW, I'm absolutely happy with software correction. It has worked well for Olympus and Panasonic.

Is that price with a kit lens? It's actually pretty keen by Leica standards, but it faces stiff competition from Panasonic, Olympus, Sony and even Samsung.

On A travel-sized large-format 4x5 camera? article (218 comments in total)
In reply to:

ManuelVilardeMacedo: The pictures on Flickr vary between very good and awful, the latter looking rather bleached. Better buy a second-hand medium format film camera at this price.

And none of them are at the maximum resolution this camera should be capable of....

On A travel-sized large-format 4x5 camera? article (218 comments in total)

Tempting. A camera with no auto focus, no built in meter, but at the same time capable of large format film IQ (if you get it right, behind the camera). At the price, it's worth a punt, but I'd expect a lot do seriously dud photos (from me, at least).

Edit: Oh, and I'm loving some of the comments here, Seriously though, this could be special. If I'm understanding the numbers, only Medium Format digital will beat this (when you plus this get it right, that is).

In reply to:

Just another Canon shooter: DPR, we should be able to click on one photo, open it in higher resolution, and go left and right with the keyboard arrows, like in FLICKR.

Not to mention an uncrop feature.....

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' article (373 comments in total)

Looks a tad "Me too," but that generally isn't a problem in the camera business.

4K video perchance?

Edit: Assuming I'm not even more behind the times than i thought, when it comes to moving pictures.

The results don't surprise me. Soft spot for 28mm, so I voted for second favourite.....

In reply to:

Alastair Norcross: Given that the Canon lens can be bought for less than the Sigma, because of the widespread availability of the Canon as a kit lens sold with several DSLRs, there would seem to be no reason for Canon users to consider the Sigma. It looks like a fine lens, but certainly not better than the Canon in any way that will show up in real world shooting.

I'd tend to agree. If i) the lens is not significantly better than the Canon lens, and ii) body only + lens is not quite a bit cheaper than kit, then you may as well go with Canon body + 24-105 as kit.

Technically, it's a fine achievement, but not enough to tempt Canon users away from the Canon lens. Caveats? Well, there may be a high level of copy variance for the Canon lens, relative to its grade/cost (and that's anecdotal in that a couple of people I know have had more than one copy of the Canon, so anecdotalanecdotal :) ).

I don't think I've ever clicked like on so many differing comments/opinions on a news article. I read the lot with a smile. Yes, this project is utterly mad. I hope they suck seeds.

Direct link | Posted on Dec 13, 2013 at 21:55 UTC as 28th comment

So what's the difference between this and the Canon equivalent? Are we looking at a very comparable lens, for potentially quite a bit less (once the prices stabilise)? The Canon 24-105 seems make the 6D kit quite a bit more expensive than Nikon and Sony equivalents (but then again, if I did buy Canon full frame, then for what I shoot, I wouldn't want to be without it).

On Panasonic DMC-GM1 preview (639 comments in total)

Bearing in mind there's no hot shoe, will the GM1's built in flash remotely control external flashes (i.e. the Olympys FL-50r or its Metz/Panasonic equivalents)?

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2381 comments in total)

Hmmm.... I've been mulling over a modest full frame kit (D600 or 6D + zoom + 50mm) for a while now. Sony's offering alters my thinking somewhat. The entry price is impressive!

Francis Carver: Based on these pictures, this is a country where "Godless Communism reigns supreme." (Yeah, it was meant as a joke. Just don't tell it to the Christian Right.)

Well, since Kim Il Sung (Great Leader, dead) is the Norks' eternal leader (having ascended to the heavens), I think they're not atheists.
