On Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview (351 comments in total)

brycesteiner: >> Noisy high ISO images
They don't look bad at all. I've seen much worse. Maybe I'm blind.

>>Heavy for a mirrorless camera
People don't get mirrorless cameras just because of the weight, but because all mirrored cameras don't hold a candle to the quality of the VF and the better images you get because of better feedback.

>>Subject tracking in continuous AF can be unreliable
Easily fixed on a firmware update. Good to bring this to the attention of Sony.

>>No quick way to magnify AF point at 100% to check focus
Seriously? How many people actually do this?

>>Over-sensitive eye sensor
This is a real problem. I would just turn it off

>>No touchscreen
This knocks MacBook Airs too, but I actually find touchscreens to be extremely annoying and themselves are a con. Computers and cameras that don't have them are better because then people don't leave their greasy finger prints all over, especially when the touchpads built have far better response and gestures.

They mean noisy for one of the newest FF camera. The images are okay, but not in the best league (a7 user here).

Cameracist: The a99 was the first ILC FF stabilised body and the a7 II is fourth, as stated in the review? Where did the two in between get lost?:)

I know them, but I mean - aren't they older? The a900 being the first stabilised FF body?

Cameracist: The sluggish camera startup is not true anymore for Luisa. For Nokia 1520 and 930 there was a complete remake of the Lumia Camera app, which is fast. Try the Denim version for yourselves:)

On X-Transformed? Fujifilm X30 Review article (294 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: Very well reviewed! This is ridiculously big for a cam made in 2014 by this sensor size! It would be an awesome machinery by an APS-C sensor.

Fuji, belongs to "film" ! Its the age of "SENSORS" ;)

I had both for quite an intensive testing...

Weli, did you hold it in hand? It looks big on photos, but is not big at all...

ogl: 42.5/1.7 = 85/3.4 for 35 mm system.....It's slow lens.

The term 'slow' has nothing to do with DoF. It tells how bright the image is/is not. You can't use 'slow' (aka 'dark' or 'not bright') for your DoF equivalence, because speed of the lens only refers to exposure counting. By that logic, FF lens at F2.8 is slow, because its something like F4.5 at 645 film terms. Is that right? (and yes, I shoot 645 film, so all your precious 2.8 FF zooms are 'slow' to me!:-D)

So what, if you want less DoF, there is the F1.2 version. F 1.7 is plenty fast, because for exposure it counts as F1.7 - the brightness is the same as a F1,7 FF lens. So it is certainly not 'slow', its fast but have 2x more DoF then FF equivalent. Fast with more DoF, repeat this after me, please.
If you are a low DoF junkie, the m4/3 is not for you, and you may as well quit this discussion.

On Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D article (316 comments in total)
In reply to:

Don051348: Specs aside, I think Canon should can the "Rebel" brand name and just go with the 750/760 name globally. I equate the "Rebel" brand name with a cheaper, inferior, entry level product. 750D/760D IMO evokes a more upscale "professional" product. Just my opinion...

There is Pentax for that.

Religion, poverty and complexes are a deadly mixture for a society and especially for those, who differ.

In reply to:

RichRMA: You know what would be interesting? If someone made one of these "fast" pro zoom lenses f/2.0 instead of f/2.8. Like Samsung does and Olympus once did.

Well, Olympus is 4/3 and the Samsung is APS-C. Not that it would not be possible for FF, but the price and size of the thing would prohibit customer base. The making of such lens is not sure to be profitable for the maker - and that's the first thing any manufacturer is after.

ThePhilips: Oh. The top LCD.

Another thing I stopped craving, after I went with a mirrorless.

Than you didn't go with a NX1:-)

Whitesands: It doesn't surprise me...Smartphones are so small and light and folks have these things with them all the time they're bound to be a lot of photos taken with them...

Are they good photos ? Well, they are certainly good considering what they are...But they are by no means as capable as the nikons they have overtaken...

Having 3 DSLRs, 1 ILC and a wide selection of lenses (and many film cameras from point-and-shoot to medium format, which I regularly use) I say: I'm glad I have a cameraphone in my pocket! Without it I'll miss many photos...
