On The new Canon 35L II will be a thing of beauty article (216 comments in total)

At $1800, it will find tough love. Most 35mm lens are decent any way. A small difference in IQ between lens may not be noticeable. Skills & composition are far more important.

On Sony reportedly shifting focus to full-frame cameras article (453 comments in total)
In reply to:

Suave: Lenses, they have to make the leses first. More and cheaper.

EVF will never beat OVF in term of IQ and speed. EVF is a compromise. By removing the mirror, they can use the same image sensor for all kind things that are not possible otherwise. For instance, IBIS.

In reply to:

wandiba56: As of now I know no camera that can produce colours as striking as Fuji’s...Bar none, Fuji gives the best colours one can ever imagine. And I have used far more expensive, much more popular and higher megapixel capturing devices yet I dare say they all come short to meet the exquisiteness of Fuji colours...Well done!!

I have a strong feeling these shots were not taken by Rishi...

'cuz I am tired of hearing brags from Leica fans (and now Fuji)

Skill...not required. Just pay Google $180 for a NIK software plug-in then you have unlimited combination of color and simulated printed paper options.

In reply to:

DVT80111: Read the review in lenstip. The score is unprecedented which made me salivated a little.

However, lot of my portraits taken with Canon 70-200/4L already required a lot of softening and edit to hide all the facial imperfections. So sharp lens is great, but does it make a practical difference?

I am not so sure.
Beside, using the legs as zoom is not always possible.

Because of no IS, those fine details may not be sharp in every case.

I can do whatever colour I like in post, why lens/camera colors still matter?

Fuji designs and makes their own lens in their own factory, and they are exceptional. For example, the XF 90mm sharpness is one of the best ever. I own both Zeiss and Fuji, and I love them both. But I think we are paying for the Zeiss badge.

So after many years of working with Zeiss, these OEM should be capable making great lenses themselves without paying license fee. Why wouldnt they do that? ...because they can charge more with a little blue logo. Hmm.

In reply to:

The Squire: If the idea is to replace system RAM with this tech it better be *much* more than 1,000 more resilient than current NAND, because it'll be hit a lot lot more frequently than if it were just used as an alternative to SSD.

That said, in cameras it will work well, as buffer memory is written to infrequently (compared to the main RAM of a PC). The distinction between buffer and card will be removed (assuming someone standardizes a very fast interface to this memory tech).

But it is still not durable enough to replace DRAM on common application such as game graphic. New machine architecture will be required to take advantage of this new breed of memory.

micksh6: Forget it. This is not for us, consumers. Two catches - price and availability.

"you won’t be seeing XPoint USB drives and are unlikely to see XPoint SSDs for the consumer market, it will be limited to high-end performance critical storage applications with interfaces that can support the speed. And can support the cost."

where is your source .. Semiaccurate Lol

Anything new will be expensive, then will get down to earth gradually. This memory will be found every where on the IoT.

LowPro Flipside 20L is basically the same thing but it has better features such waist strap, ventilated backside, and an optional water hydration bag. These are the must-have feature through.

Uploading pictures from PC into Google Photos is much different than before. Took me a while to figure out. Don't like it, the old way better.

Canon lens adapter, what's about the flash? When Yongnuo could come up with a Sony compatible version for the E3-RT, I can kiss Canon camera goodbye for good.

On Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge article (732 comments in total)
In reply to:

AngryCorgi: Canon bailed out of the US market because it didn't see an interest. Well done, Canon. You called that one!

Canon-M draw little interest becuz..
1. no VF. Serious photographer can't shoot without a VF.
2. little advantage in size. Lens with long focal distance is still there. Most of DSLR owner don't see much reason to buy an EOS-M.
