Time to start a Konost forum!
sgitlin: I have a question re image #5, the black rhino at night. According to the exif data the exposure was ISO 1600, f5.6, for 30 seconds. If you blow the picture up to its max. you can see slight star trails instead of points for the stars, which makes me think that 30 seconds is probably correct for exposure time. If it is correct, it's amazing that the rhino doesn't move a centimeter during that whole time, as the image is extremely sharp, even the hairs on its ear. Does this seem possible, or am I missing something here?
The flash exposed the rhino and the long exposure brought out the night sky. After the flash exposed the rhino, I doubt the sensor would record its movement, as it was too dark.
JEROME NOLAS: It say z "Hands-on with the Nikon D3300 and 35mm F1.8G lens" but most pics are with 18-55mm lens...
Hey Barney: Just pulling your leg. ;-)
This article is literally "hands on" and the pictures prove it. What? You wanted DPR to actually use the products? C'mon, man!
Carlos Loff: A camera that only shoots up to 1/4000 can be a good camera and all one may need but can never be a great camera
I agree, the Pentax 645D is pure trash! :-)
mholdef: Nice shot...taken on my birthday :)
Thanks for the compliment -- and happy belated birthday!
Colin Franks: Yup, very nice!
Thanks, Noah. Very nice of you to say.
marike6: One of the posters below gave the best chuckle of the night. They would never buy such a lens because, in their words, it's slow.
a) This lens has a huge 82mm filter thread. A hypothetical zoom with constant f2 or faster max aperture would be the size of a can of Foster's Lager and would cost 4 times the price at least.
b) everybody here is fully aware of the advantages of fast primes but this lens is made for when it's not practical to change lenses to get the shot as in photojournalism, sport, weddings, etc
b) f2.8 is a common max aperture on the standard FF professional grade lens like those from Nikon and Canon.
f2 and only four times the cost of a can of Fosters? I'm in! ;-)
Or could it be facial scarring traditionally used by the Igbo people of West Africa, otherwise known as ichi?
mikeydread: Quote from the Sony official website:
"there’s a tiltable LCD touch screen"
oh dear DPReview - how can you do a hands-on preview and not know it has a touch screen!!!!
Mikey Dread come fe conquer!
Unless Google is engaged in copyright infringement (I doubt it), this appears to be above board. In fact, a look at the Google Books website suggests that the author of the book permitted its partial posting as an effort to market the book.
Thus, for all involved, I would say T138 did make a great comment.
