On Feature film shot on iPhone 5 coming to cinemas post (64 comments in total)
In reply to:

StevenE: A good story is indispensable and carries the film of course. But what does the iPhone actually bring to the table? It's awkward to use and there are plenty of better, inexpensive, equally unobtrusive cameras. Maybe the iPhone is good for publicity, but that's about it.

Could be true. If that was their mission it seems to be working. That's exactly why I'm interested in seeing it. ;-) but with a more expensive camera could come with additional expenses to run it. More experienced camera crews for example. I don't know their entire thought process behind their decisions, but it's still interesting. To me anyway.

Maybe the people involved already owned the iPhones too, so there was zero cost involved.

pew pew: DOF fail...

Seems like a strange statement. What is wrong with the depth of field? Are you looking for shots with "bokeh"? There's nothing wrong with deep focus. It's been used often in cinema. Orson Welle's "Citizen Kane", from the 1940's, is a great example of deep focus cinematography.

I haven't watched the movie on my computer screen yet, but I think it's amazing that they used iPhones to create a movie. Just my 2 cents.

Lightcapture: Just a headline grabbing gimmick. I mean, with the same price, they could buy the RX100 and they will have even better quality and no extra cost (or maybe even less cost than the iphone 5). Also, that instagram colour grading is so 2012, definitely no-no for me. I hope there is a strong storyline and then I can look past those hype and concentrate on the characters portrayed therein...

Didn't realize you can hook up an anamorphic lens to an RX100.

On Ricoh GR II: What's new and what does it mean? article (206 comments in total)
In reply to:

PrintLabGuy: I want a pocketable camera with full frame sensor, 35mm equivalent lens, EVF/OVF, and NO LCD or AA filter. No LCD would save on weight/size and increase battery time. Actually, the Sony RX1r fits this description, so if they could stuff that all into a GR body and keep the awesome menu system, I'd be happy.

No LCD, but keep the menu system? How exactly would that work?

I was hoping they'd announce the successor to the RX1 yesterday too.

It's unfortunate they don't support RAW with these cameras.

Finally, something unique and different!

"Think of a digital version of the rather beautiful Canon P rangefinder for example". Love this idea!!

JakeB: Hold on.

Not so fast, Fuji fans.

The Leica T has also upped the specs on their EVF viewfinder.

To enjoy the new feature, simply toss out your old standalone viewfinder and spend another $600 on its replacement.

Leica thanks you for your loyalty and assures you that your work reminds them of Cartier-Bresson.

I think that's his point. It would have been nice if both cameras were able to use the same EVF.

On Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM review preview (21 comments in total)

I've been contemplating purchasing this lens for some time because of it's quality and great price of $899. I'm glad I waited because I got in on an Amazon.com Lightning Deal the other day and purchased it for only $699. WOW!

On Fujifilm X100S preview (218 comments in total)

Is it just me, or does the OMD beat all 3 of the others in this test in terms of sharpness? What am I missing? There's definitely more dynamic range in the X100s that I can see, compared to the OMD.

This is what Fuji should do with their X100 line (been wishing on that for a while). Three different bodies with 3 different lenses. I'd carry 3 X100's, each having a different focal length (35, 50, 85 in 35mm equiv), and never have to change lenses again.

Is this lens weather sealed? (Sorry if it's already been asked.)

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 preview extended article (280 comments in total)
In reply to:

hiplnsdrftr: I am a professional photographer that has been begging for almost exactly this kind of camera...

The RX1 appears to be an awesome accomplishment. I love the simplicity and focus in it's design. I am relieved that Sony resisted any temptation to include a flip screen. Furthermore, I am fine with the lack of a viewfinder. Honestly, I have used enough digital P&S cameras over the last 7 years that I am just as comfortable shooting with a screen as I am a viewfinder. The inclusion of a pop up flash makes this camera nearly perfect. (I can't believe Canon left it out of the EOS-M!)

Not so sure about the price though. Probably worth it, but to many other things I can get for my $2,800.

Can't a professional photographer have a fun "after work" camera to carry around? It doesn't have to contribute to their bottom line. But, one need it could fulfill for "working" would be to shoot near silently (no loud shutter) in a situation that requires it.

On Nikon D4 & D800: What do the Professionals Think? article (391 comments in total)

It would be nice to see a follow up to this article. It would be interesting to hear the same photographers thoughts after using the cameras for quite some time now. Were the cameras everything they had hoped/thought they'd be, etc.?

On Preview:olympusEM5 (1362 comments in total)

What am I doing wrong? The E-M5 seems to have better resolution/sharpness than the D3s using DPR's studio scene comparison tool. Is that correct?

In reply to:

nxp3: Apple has been pulling the same stunt year after year. No SD card slot, no way to expand, yet people keep buying it. An sdhc or sd card is a necessity not an option. You can't leave that out. It's like buying a Ferrari with no tires. A super model with missing front teeth, a camera without lens. Should I go on?

They do make an SD Card adapter for those that require it.
