About me:

Photography is a side-line, fashion photography as a job (won awards), portraiture and street photography as an "amateur" hobby. Strangely I "create" pictures, but on the long term, I discovered other things in my pictures, I am not constructing them or choosing them, when I look at the past 20 years, they have things in common, the creation is probably more than the creator, even an hidden part of him...

Did the firmware finally improve the lens resolution? loL!

It's an interesting sensor, to compare lenses and show all their limitations and flaws! lol

PhotoKhan: "Please note that many of the high ISO images from the EOS 5DS R break DPReview's file size limit on sample images when converted to JPEG"

...and, yet, some users here insist these monster file sizes are not a problem...

Storage for Pro photographers are not cheap, especially if you include redundancy, performances, and BACKUPSSSSS.

At some points you will need big RAID units just to store you raw, as I do, and others RAID units for backups, maintain them, buy new units regularly, and trying to avoid loosing your photographies.

It's all but cheap.

On Canon issues product advisory for Rebel T6i/T6s article (139 comments in total)

Canon had a QA problem, but they handle it the right way, by checkimng things carefully, determining witch batches are impacted, then issuing a product advisory to have them checked and repaired (probably with a new sensor!).

Errors could happens, and will, the thing that differentiate peoples and companies are the way we handle them. And Canon is hopefully doing the right thing!

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2975 comments in total)
In reply to:

SierraPapa: First off, to clear up any doubt with skeptical Canon users, I have owned and used Canon cameras and lenses, professionally since 1980. Now, for my my observation: When the (full frame) 5D Mark III came out, I remember reading an article about how the size of the chip and the size of the pixels were considered the perfect match and the need for a CMOS chip any larger was probably superfluous. Now, low-and-behold, Canon comes out with a 50 megapixel CMOS chip. Humm, I say to myself, "I wonder what this is really all about?" Could it be that the CMOS chip in the 5Ds and 5Ds R is simply Canon's slight-of-hand marketing trick to produce yet another model and entice us to part with $3,700.00 for a camera you don't need? Me thinks this is a buyer beware situation.

Clearly the 20MP to 24MP full-frame sensors are the right point to exploit a lot of great lenses, and are clearly limited by basic kit zoom lenses. So you need high-end lenses, and primes to get the most out of them.

I don't see the point to go at 30MP or over, except with some rare (and expensive) lenses, and for studio work.

Good upgrade. But I think that people interested in it won't like the video or live-view features, and would have preferred a simplified camera, to take pictures the old way.

On Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview (500 comments in total)

Compared to the Nikon D610 & D750, that seems to share a similar sensor, the Sony STL-A77 II seems to be incredibly noisy, with at least 2EV difference when putting it on ISO 1600 and D610 or D750 at ISO 6400!

Totally deceptive!

Mister Roboto: I would rather have a larger sensor at least 2/3 or 1 inch than invest on any lens which in the end will produce mediocre result.

In reply to:

iAPX: There's just a little problem on this camera:
with it's lens, and maybe any lense that anyone coiuld create on 2015, there's no real on-focus sharp part.

Said differently, there are 28MOP on the sensor, but the lenses are just low-pass filters and there's no improvement since 16MP APS-C sensors, definition is not resolution.

There is clearly a good example, at ISO 100, with micro-contrast forced, and nothing really sharp (as sharp on aD300 or D610 for example)

Another scene where you could see it's not sharp, where it should be.

Anyway I won't convince you, but it is just a warning it's not necessarily the killer iSamsung would it like to be ;)

Swordman: This is a total game changer and will force its competitors to up the game. It's fair to say, that in maybe another 5 years, that mirrorless will outperform DSLRs in every area other than battery life.

This is a game changerunti lyou see the picture and the "sharp" part of it. That arent sharp.

iAPX: IS there anything sharp, somewhere in this picture?!?

Seems the 28MP sensor deliver no more than a D300 12MP sensor

Oh I know and appreciate the per picel quality of the D300 with high-end lenses, it's one of the thing that makes me love it, event after 7 or 8years using it (it's built like a tank!), in RAW it's awesome.
