  • The Sony hot-shoe contact layout is completely different to all other hot-shoe layouts. It hence could not be captured by their multi-layout design. However, Cactus announced that they are working ...
  • You'd have to ask him for the reasons, but there is no doubt that he is favouring Godox and does not give credit were credit is due when it comes to Cactus products. Some arguments to support my view:
  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    @Rishi: How can you state that on-sensor PDAF is immune to problems with rays from the periphery of the lens?

    On-sensor PDAF still uses the same principle of using different rays and if they are...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    @Rishi: Thank you for the clarification.

    In my view the "focus on one eye" technique (exclusive to Sony lenses) demonstrated in the second video worked very well but your first video either...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    Guys, different path lengths ("misalignment") between a separate PDAF system and the sensor define one constant adjustment for all lenses. Such a mismatch is easy to figure out and fix. The...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    Could you not have chosen an AF point manually in your first test? The vast amount of shots were unusable with the nose being in focus but not the eyes.

    It would be extremely disappointing if this...

  • Elvis from FlashHavoc is obviously biased against anything Cactus and pushes Godox rather strongly. He will delete comments from his website from people that challenge his ways. The Cactus RF60 has ...
  • Some people are not upset about "good" being replaced with "bettern but rather about the characterisation of "mirrorles" as "better".

    Even when EVF will get better, they will never allow test...

  • This promises to be another great Sigma lens. Hopefully Sigma will consider offering it in K-mount as well after a while. The lens would be a great companion to the announced Pentax FF camera (with...

  • Good to see some balanced discussion in the article. DSLRs are by no means the "dinosaur technology" that they are often characterised at.

    One point that rarely gets made is that image quality is...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    @Rishi Sanyal: Just wanted to give you a big thumbs up for showing interest in what may have gone wrong in the K-3 AF test.

    Unfortunately, even advice from Ricoh directly may not have been...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    @falconeyes: I share your concerns. I surmise GPS was considered a good fit to the profile of an "outdoors" camera.

    Still, I would have left GPS to an external unit and would have thought Wi-Fi...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    Even flash systems better than P-TTL are limited when they use optical triggering.

    WIth a pop-up flash you won't have much reach and will struggle with flashes within light modifiers (e.g.,...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    "...we're disappointed by ... the disappearance of the built-in flash..."

    Really? P-TTL is so bad at controlling more than one off-camera flash, why would you put up with such a bad optical...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    Yes, with improved sensitivity and better colour separation.

    However, this will only work optimally with the camera on a very stable tripod and a completely still scene.

    A Foveon sensor does...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    Can't help but think adding Wi-Fi would have been more useful than GPS (that hopefully can be turned off in order to save battery life).

    Otherwise, it is a very nice improvement on an already...

  • I trust this will be a great performer and AF won't be missed on a macro lens. The version for Pentax supports automatic metering so it pretty much ticks all the boxes.

    I wish, however, it would...

  • In my experience, the automatic generation of a camera profile from a shot of a Colorchecker does not work optimally.

    Perhaps Adobe have optimised this process for the CFA characteristics of...
