On photo bugs life in the Small Amazing Things ( Macro ) challenge (2 comments in total)

Nice. ISO 160, f/10, 1/250 s mean ambient light is pretty strong for you to have decent background colors. :)

IEBA1: The color balance on the whole thing is off, or the colorimetry on the pre-selected cameras is wonky. Look at the paper clips: Nikon & Panny are bordering on green, while the Canon & Olympus are bordering on red/pink. And this is for the silver paperclips which are reflecting "white" light.

Same grouping when you select the model's face in the upper right- the Canon & Olympus are clearly more red.

But then, select the "blue" watch face and the situation is reversed- the Nikon & Panny now have _more_red in them than the Canon & Olympus.

Really makes you question the accuracy of all these cameras.

All these issues are not present in RAW.

But I agree the crowd that goes for such cameras probably only shoots jpeg. :)

photo nuts: Comparable to some of its peers (G12/S100/S95), better than LX5/XZ1 but worse thanV1/J1. In short, no surprises here.

JackM: The color issue does not surface in RAW which is what concerns me most. :)

Xentinus: The P7100 sensor is very slightly better. But the fast XZ1 lens (f/1.8-2.5) more than make up the disparity in sensor performance.

Ibida Bab: Not I. I am buying the Fujifilm x10 for the single reason, it is Made in Japan. Until Nikon starts manufacturing in Japan again I am not interested.

All Canon DSLR cameras and most Canon lenses are made in Japan with the exception of the 18-55 kit lens. Nikon high-end DSLRs are made in Japan.

There were some initial rumors the S100 was >1 stop better than the S95. Well, that's all horses**t. Better than Olympus XZ1/Panasonic LX3, same as Canon S95/Nikon P7000 and worse than Nikon J1/V1.

What a shame.

The mist and faint sunlight help create a melancholic mood. Well seen.

thx1138: Wow what a MASSIVE oversight to not mention the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 VC and non VC lenses. How could you forget those two!

Never mind

I think the Sigma 150 f/2.8 OS HSM Macro lens should be on that list, much more so than its companion Sigma 105 f/2.8.

Graystar: I was expecting much better results. The noise is terrible...even visible when full image is viewed. Disappointing...

I am looking at IMGP0198-ACR now. I don't suppose you know what shallow depth of field means?

But a number of those images are converted from RAW! :)

AMAZING image quality. I am curious how a 40 MP 35mm Full Frame camera will stack out against this. Can the best Nikon and Canon glass come anywhere close? Even when shot wide open at f/2.8, the lens still impresses.

On article Just Posted: Sony SLT-A65 review (159 comments in total)
In reply to:

Argote: To all the people wondering why this got Gold and the A77 "only" got Silver:

The A77 is comparable to other cameras in its class/price range (7D, D7000, etc); however, the A65 is undoubtably superior to other cameras in its class/price range (600D, D5100, etc).

This makes it easy to recommend other over cameras for almost all situations while the same cannot be said for the A77. In a way this could be a bigger victory for Sony since a lot more cameras are sold at this price point.

I wanted to point this out, but you beat me to it. :)

In reply to:

VadymA: Slightly disappointed. I find all images way too soft to my liking. Not sure if its aggressive NR or soft lens. Widely renown sloppiness of DPR samples could be a factor as well.

Look at VadymA's posting history. He is a fervent supporter of Foveon sensor... no AA filter... but the colors... no one cares about colors, right?

ybizzle: Fuji has forever rocked the foundation of compact cameras with the X10. You get m4/3 image quality from the 2/3" sensor plus low noise high ISO performance. There is just no competition for this camera right now. Glad I was lucky enough to buy one on release day.

Actually, the DR looks better than what one typically gets from m4/3 sensors.
