On Very flashy: Ricoh unveils Pentax K-S1 DSLR article (206 comments in total)
In reply to:

Julian: Isn't there a danger that the green leds light will creep into low light shots?

I'm thinking long exposure shots (so yes with a tripod). I suppose as long as the user can switch off - then its ok.

On Hasselblad unveils pixel-shifting 200MP H5D-200c MS article (248 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ellis Vener: There are some pretty stringent limitations on multi-step backs
-the camera cannot move, even a tiny amount, between frames.
-same thing with subject: absolute stillness required.
- the lighting needs to be absolutely consistent exposure to exposure, during the sequence.

So is this camera for?

If you photograph fabrics , especially carpet and rugs;, or certain types of products including furniture, sculpture, and artwork.

OK I get it so they move the sensor by minute amounts and shoot multiple exposures. This technique is surely susceptible to ghosting problems.

Thats what I dont get - is this camera just taking multiple exposures and then interlacing them with some fancy software to claim a higher resolutiion? and if so what are the advantages of this approach over just the standard 50MP body and some good post processing software? I would think you have more options with the second approach - as you can choose what images work best together with careful consideration.

On -Transparent Building- (Full Colours Only + Border) challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

ConanFuji: In the architectural industry, transparency and reflectivity have an inverse connection.
High reflectivity is not high transparency.
Transparent means it lets light pass through.
That means you can see more of the insides.... for example, a greenhouse.

That's good - its not just me thinking this! I was expecting lots of greenhouse / see through building shots - and was surprised at all the reflections!

Does this mean that from lightroom 6 onwards we are gonna be limited to cloud versions only? If so I will plan my migration away from lightroom.

So to test this someone should run it with the winning images from the world press photo competition and see how highly they score...

99$ a year for a mobile application! I wonder how many takers they'll get for that given that you can buy the full pc version for not so much more...

Well if they do this with the next D800 update I won't be installing it. The price difference between a 3rd party battery and the Nikon original where I live is a very clear factor of 4!!!

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)
In reply to:

jadmaister2: I'm sure it's all been said, but my 2p worth is simply, too big and way too expensive. A stupid £2800 ish in the UK (thats $4500 to you american types) puts it $600 above the D800 with the same lens.
I'm a photographer. I appreciate a nod to aesthetics, they are important, but Nikon, please?!
No video? Fine. I'm even glad. A dedicated movie camera is a better bet anyway if your that serious, but what I wanted was something smaller and at a cost which even you Nikon know is right. The D600/610 is affordable. The D800 is aspirational. The D4 is a pro cam, so not a fair comparison. Which, out of 610/800 does this camera most resemble in build and features?
So. £1000 dollars too expensive then.

A joke in Sweden too - the Df also costs about $800 to $1000 more than the D800 in Sweden - which means they missed the ballpark.

Advancing film is the most characteristic action in shooting film!

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)

If you look at the high-iso scores on dxo-mark, the smaller sensors still have a long way to go in low light photography. I have yet to try a smaller than aps-c sensor that I'm satisfied with in low light - My D800 excels in low light though.

In reply to:

Julian: I doubt somehow that they will be offering a service to put these into D800's somehow (as implied in this article), although I look forward to seeing this tech in future Nikon kit. They're for sure gonna need to have plenty of good new features to persuade me to upgrade my D800.

It was the sentence that mapgraphs quotes above. I understand its intent is to explain the potential benefits in a way that people can understand, but it was also at the same time unintentionally misleading.

On Panasonic GX7 First Impressions Review article (1201 comments in total)
In reply to:

Julian: I might wait for the price to come down on this, and then replace my GF1... It looks like they finally nailed all my key gripes. I love the inbuilt viewfinder, the silent shutter sounds awesome ;) I wonder how the new sensor handles at the higher iso's... Looking forward to some samples...

Well my big cameras are a D800 and D3 (which I know I should never compare this against - but I naturally do as these are what I use day to day) - if I can get anything like D3 high ISO I would be ecstatic - given the announced ISO range of the sensor - this might be within the realms of possibility.
