chrisnfolsom: Just because you can see a difference means little - did the difference mean anything to you, or other viewers? Why don't we all just attach RAW files if we are so "worried" about quality - this is generally for the web folks, where quality is much less visible, or needed - who publishes full sized pictures? So if you are going to process them, why not use JPEGmini and save space, bandwidth and file space.

Funny.

On Connect post Apple iPhone 6s Plus camera review (161 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nick Carrigan: The file export comment is misleading as you can always email the "actual size" photos. This does not "require" iTunes. Also, you can just install the Apple Mobile Device drivers (on a Windows PC) to access the device through Windows Explorer. I believe Windows Update will install the drivers for you.

In my opinion, only 3 or 4 of the negative points mentioned are real issues. Yes, the camera app should have extended features but you can't judge the device based upon something it "should" have. Review it for what it is... not what it should be.

The fact that you can email a photo doesn't negate how USB cable transfer is. Hardly misleading.

Xeexon: I'm with all those who say it's a new format altogether-why else would they go on and on about all the firsts of this company and then use 'brand new format' (all errors notwithstanding)? As improbable as it seems, I think it's even more improbable that whoever wrote this press release has the capacity to be ironic.

Ricoh/Pentax isn't afraid to innovate, beyond even what was already mentioned. There's the Theta, Q series, (nearly) disruptively inexpensive medium format, pro level features in a reasonably priced consumer camera, all the games they play with IBIS, etc... Not all these are great, but you cannot accuse Pentax of being afraid to try something new.

A new sensor format niche would also seem logical vis a vis competing in a nearly saturated full frame market.

Call me what you will, but here's hoping that this is more than just a stall tactic. At least for this bleeding heart Pentaxian, something new (and good) would be a very welcome concession after years of waiting.

Huh ? New format ? That's require new lenses. Want bigger ? They already have 645D/Z.

Ultra gimmick and only 8MP.

Got autofocus with that lens on a Canon body?

In reply to:

Paul JM: What disturbs me is the fact that this lens, and its predecessor which I own and love, are not on the list of recommended lenses for the 5dsr
http://www.slrlounge.com/canon-announces-new-list-of-recommended-lenses-for-new-5ds/
but the non-L f2 35mm is ! What is going on Canon ? Do they really feel that the non L has better optical characteristics then the 1.4 ? Do they really NOT recommend this new L series lens on their new high quality 50MP sensor ? Do I sell my 35mmL and 'upgrade' to the f2 lens ?

They didn't list the 35 f/1.4 so people looking at a slightly old list wouldn't go looking for the "old" version after the mark II came out. It's really that simple.

Meh. Only 5 lenses and only one of them is high quality.

On article 4K video: What you need to know (285 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Squire: Article is a bit piggy-ducky-horsey for the DPR audience, in my opinion. But I like the layout.

I dont think the Getting Ready for 4K is accurate, regarding PC/Mac specs. I've been editing 4K for a year or so and unless you are doing lots of channels and layering, a good dual core and 8Gb is plenty. You just need a fairly modern dual core which has more video codec support on-chip...

Tell us how you really feel dude.

In reply to:

happypoppeye: There is very little benefit shooting in RAW these days and its easier for a company to handle jpegs. Plus, jpegs are almost just as editable.

Did you read the article? It's not submitting raw files but a jpg created from a raw converter...other than the cameras raw converter!

Raw is and always will be a big benefit over jpg for aps-c and larger sensors.

This is like rejecting any photo not set to 300 dpi in the file's properties!

In reply to:

Androole: It seems equivalence is unkind to larger sensors as well as to small ones.

"$1500 for a 28mm f2.8? Who would ever buy that?"

It's perhaps an exaggeration, but it does say something that despite the 645Z's bargain price tag as far as digital medium format is concerned, it's still not a great value proposition unless you really, really need it. Especially since the 5DS has the same resolution, and the A7r II (and undoubtedly the D820) are nipping close at its heels.

A good couple of years away from a d820.

On Connect post Samsung Galaxy S7 rumored to come with 1/2-inch 12MP sensor (86 comments in total)
In reply to:

Markol: I'd be surprised if Samsung had the courage to go 12MP on their flagship, given how many people won't know how to read this.
AND 1/2 inch is just a little bit larger than a 1/2,3" sensor, so not that big a gain in sensor real estate.
Then again, 12MP would be enough if it is again a 16:9 sensor, which is to be expected.

1/2 inch means 1/2.0 so a smaller image sensor than the Canon G15 which is 1/1.7".

.. while earlier you posted samsung would be using even smaller image sensors in upcoming s series phones to eliminate the bump on the s5 and s6. Which one is real and not rumor?

solarider: Thank you for a very well written review. I 'm sure much time and effort was spent both before and after the event. Sony has come a long way so far... will be of great interest to see what happens down the pike. Maybe some of this tech might show up on Sony's upcoming DSLR's and something magic is in the future?

Sony doesn't make dslrs anymore.

Nobody loves a patent troll !
This is so frivolous !

Polaroid doesn't exist. You can pay to use the Polaroid name on a product.

tassienick: Monopolies are never good for business, and Sony being the only serious sensor manufacturer in the game is definitely not going to be good for photography...

Only serious manufacturer? Canon makes the other 60 % for their own dslrs and mirrorless.

juvx: Looks like EVERY Nikon sensor will be made by Sony now.

D5 doesn't exist yet. You are spouting rumors and nikon does not manufacturer sensors. They tweak sony sensors.

In reply to:

MustyMarie: Canon needs this part of Toshiba MUCH more than does Sony, especially if they could buy some patents too !

Canon lagging so far in the sensor field could really use a nice boost in tech, unless they are holding back.

BSI and on sensor A/D's could pull Canon back to nicer DR and put a mute to the critics !

But.....

Canon DOES use sony sensors in all their p&s cameras (smaller than aps-c and the G1 X sensors). Well not all. Canon did create a factory to make a small percentage of their own p&s sensors but with that market quickly dying...
