Knine: With a 1" sensor, doesn't that mske it an equivalent F14 through the range? If you have equivalent Focal Length, then you have equivalent F Stop. F Stop is a formula of opening iris and focal length, and sensor size equivalent.

You obviously haven't got a clue what we're talking about. I'm referring to the article that lightcatcher quoted which would be obvious if you actually bothered reading through the thread. He quoted an article which directly contradicts the point he was trying to make. The fact that 4 people like his comment just shows that there are a lot of people here like you who are completely unable to comprehend the english language.

@ Francis Carver, you need to read the thread again

@knine, yes I agree with you. You can either quote actual focal length and actual aperture OR equivalent focal length and equivalent aperture. But you can't pick and choose which figures to quote just to make it sound better.

@ knine, it's not a 1" sensor

On Nikon D750 service advisory warns of shutter issue article (341 comments in total)
In reply to:

VENTURE-STAR: This is really pretty disgraceful - again!. There was a time when companies like Canon and Nikon would release products that were thoroughly tested and evaluated. Major faults were rare. Now they are putting equipment in the market place ASAP and then falling back on everything from software updates to recalls.

@nicolaiecostel, naththo, why don't you try reading the post properly before you criticise? You obviously haven't as he mentions both Canon and Nikon.

Downloaded! This is exactly what I've been looking for. Full 16-bit editing, retina support etc. I've only been using it for 15 minutes and I already like it better than GIMP.

QuarryCat: Nikon obviously believes still in DSLR-Fullframe for the next 8 years.
or
they don't believe in Fullframe mirror less System-Cameras
or they see no chance to built the lenses lighter and smaller for mirror less.

I don't believe either, that adaptation for long super-tele-lends makes sense.

I use 2.8/300 mm - 2.8/400 mm - 5.6/800 mm
and I won't go to Nikon, which is 3-5 years behind Canon in super-tele-lenses. Not even for a D750 or D810.

They should have done a 4.8/600 mm even lighter and they should bring a 5.6/100-600 mm - then I and many others will switch.

Only wideangle mirrorless lenses have a size/weight advantage over their DSLR counterparts. Why would anyone want to use a mirrorless camera with a huge super tele lens anyway?

This should make a good tripod mounted macro camera.

Looks pretty good to me, not sure what all the whining is about.

King of Song: After reading some of the comments, it occurred to me that most people here don't understand how difficult it is to build a lens that is 100% faster than all other existing wide-angle zooms. This lens will open doors that have thus far have remained unopened. This may very well be a crowning achievement in lens design?

@Androole, no they are not.

I read on another website that there's no iPod touch support. That's disappointing - mainly because I have an iPod touch, but it's also a bad marketing decision because very few people who don't have an iPhone would run out and buy an iPhone just to use this camera, but may be tempted if all they had to buy was an iPod touch.

zorgon: It's a cool camera, but I'd much prefer a wifi connection, and a solid bracket between camera and phone instead of this flimsy connector.

Thanks for the reply Rishi

On Going solo: DxO introduces 20MP 'ONE' connected camera article (125 comments in total)

Seems nonsensical to quote a DXO score for "superRAW" format. Even the crappiest sensor can have unlimited DR / bit depth and low noise if you merge enough frames to HDR.

On Accessory Review: LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt article (40 comments in total)
In reply to:

nielsgi: What is the point of a thunderbolt connection on a 5400rpm hard drive?
The pleasure of paying more than for a USB 3 only drive?

Thunderbolt hard drives tend to run a little faster than USB 3.0 despite the fact that the drive itself is nowhere near reaching the USB 3.0 bandwidth.

CameraLabTester: Option 1:
"This shot is so brilliant!
Let's see the EXIF... wow! It's a Leica camera! No wonder! The owner knows a thing or two or three..."

Option 2:
"This shot is so horrible!
Let's see the EXIF... yikes! It's a Leica camera! No wonder! The owner doesn't have a clue on how to use it..."

Both options applicable vice versa.

.

It's not unheard of for companies to share patents. Leica already have links with Panasonic. Unlikely that such a small company would develop it's own system from scratch.

What a poor argument. Touch screen shutter release is only seen in Panasonic and Olympus cameras and is undoubtedly protected by multiple patents. A lens and sensor is not.
