On Nikon 1 V3: Real-world Sample Images article (175 comments in total)

Looks good but it is clear the 10-30mm kit lens (the weakest in the line-up) can't keep up with the new sensor. High ISO looks amazing for this sensor size. I would have liked to see some architectural shots at base ISO with a better lens.

how did you get the polarizer to work so well with the sky on a wide angle lens?

I'm very glad to see them do this. As time passes, art can deteriorate and colors can shift even though they do their best to preserve it. Having an image can allow future generations to enjoy the art even if the original is lost to some catastrophe.

Some of the images I viewed let you zoom in pretty tight. Perhaps closer than they would let you view them at the actual museum.

The search function is literal. If you misspell the artist's name you get no result. For example, Vangogh returns nothing, Van Gogh returns results. Another thing, it seems to include results unrelated to the artist.

JEROME NOLAS: Lytro, the worst IQ in digital history doesn't want to die with dignity just like Nikon 1...great work comrades!!!

I'm glad to have a Nikon 1. It focuses fast and accurately on what I wanted it to the first time. No need to refocus later.

On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article (660 comments in total)

What are the advantages of the larger sensor? Some I can think of:

Larger Pixels for low noise. The old 645D wasn't that impressive at high ISOs, but this new sensor sounds very interesting.

Smaller DOF for artistic effects. Hopefully Pentax designed the new lenses carefully concerning Bokeh quality.

Smaller apertures before diffraction blurring is noticeable.

Probably others I'm not thinking of.

On Engineering a Difference: Ben Von Wong Part 2 article (38 comments in total)

Can't knock a guy who got out of the working dregs into something more enjoyable. I did the same (not photography related) but the monetary enrichment part still eludes me.

810mm is quite the reach for nature photogs. Not too concerned about the price. High initially then it drops later and/or there are discounts.

I have a J1 with three lenses. Only $500 invested and the first camera system I didn't want to sell off after a year or two. Very light and tiny. This new lens would be quite a reach ($) for me though.

These people who complain about Nikon winning the lawsuit are probably the first to complain if their photo gets stolen on the Internet.

Reilly Diefenbach: Not one picture of a landscape to show what 24MP can really do?

When I was flipping through the samples, I had the very same thought. Where are the landscapes?

On Hands-on with the GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition article (214 comments in total)

If the GoPro is out of your price range, check out the Mobius camera for under $80 US. It is very small, beautiful crisp HD video, clear audio with adjustable levels, high dynamic range mode and, apparently, you can get a wide angle lens for it. Plenty of YouTube reviews.

On First Impressions Review: Using the Canon PowerShot G16 article (351 comments in total)

This is a great travel camera when used outdoors or where you can keep the ISO's low. I have to agree with those who say that the price of admission is a bit too much when you consider what else is out there these days.

On Fujifilm X-M1 real-world samples gallery article (101 comments in total)

Very nice image quality. This is where other manufacturers need to learn. They provide cameras with a nice sensor, yet include a crappy kit lens. Look at the last Pentax review. Great sensor, crappy lens.

It's a photo accessory. It is supposed to be expensive.

Trollshavethebestcandy: The K-01 is one reason alien life forms seek intelligent life forms on other planets. Surely an intelligent life form could not allow such visual evil to exist.
Seriously that cam is so hideous I could use it for shark repellent in a tank full of starving sharks and topped off with blood and bacon.

I don't think it was that bad. It did had a toyish look though. If you want to see the most hideous camera ever made, Google image the Konika Aiborg. The thing looks inflated, angry or just melted.

I had the Fujifilm 6800Z. It was an odd designed vertical styled point and shoot. It didn't have standout features other than the design, but it did shoot video with sound. Hard to believe it was 12 years ago already.

I can see someone walking around with this rig and tripping or stepping off of a ledge... See if the warranty covers that!
