On High-end full frame roundup (2014) article (539 comments in total)
In reply to:

StephenL: When will people realise there is no such thing as full frame? m4/3 is full frame to an Olympus user. Yet to a Pentax 645 owner, a Canon 5D sensor is tiny.

Without being too pedantic I think we can safely assume the name is applied to cameras which in films days would have been 35mm film format.

A real shame if Metz goes under, I used Metz for over 40 years professionally, starting with a wet cell flash.......had to keep your eye on the floating balls :)

I think I only ever had one fail on me and then it was bashing it against a wall half way up a Jacobs ladder that did it.

Thoughts: Only 5 g gold has been used.

Less in fact, as the gold metal bits have no chrome plating, thats come off to plate in gold.

I like it though.........

papa natas: Lee Filters...
OMG!!!
These guys have been there since forever.
I bought a couple of their polarizers and masks for blue skies back in the late 70's.
They made good old Technicolor movie films come alive & with pure colors.
Great British know how.
No, I'm not being paid for this.
I just admire good, enduring, no bull products.
Is the Spitfire coming back?

Cooke, Taylor-Hobson, Ross.......all gone now, but in their time made some of the finest lenses in the world.
Keep up lad, keep up ;)

goblover: Is it just me, or the Canon G7x sample was motion blurred? And the LX100? If you see the top left and bottom right, the red water colour paint, and colour circle on the bottom left, the letters are blurred. The circle also not a full circle, a bit distorted. I'm not the expert, maybe DP Reviewers can help clarify why is that?

Not just you at all, in fact surprised it wasn't spotted before publication........any response DPR?

And if thats not a bit of camera shake, then Canon need to go back to the drawing board on lens design.

Boxbrownie: Try walking normally without hanging onto the camera and let it just swing, attached by one point it'll just swing around and twist about quite insecurely, this is nothing new as an invention, just another version of a failed idea, you cannot beat having two fixed points toi hang a camera from............

Kepp trying chaps!

@fuego6.....so its on a strap around your neck and shoulder and you STILL have to hold it with one hand? Not exactly what straps are for.....
@Gollan......I am sure yours is fine.........

karet: This could actually be useful in washing machines for surgical instruments or glass and utensils in pharmaceutical production units. When validating the efficacy of the machine when trying new loading patterns this could be additional proof that the water and detergent go where you want it to go.

You do not think the manufacturers already do this?

I was sealing micro video cameras inside engine inlet manifolds/oil sumps/air boxes etc etc 20 years ago, I am sure the likes of Bosch and Meile do this all the time.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (689 comments in total)

Its a pity about loosing the optical finder, and a shame Canon could not have put as much effort into developing a more accurate and better OF as they have developing the LCD add-on carbuncle........er......LCD add-on viewfinder.

What's with all the RAW/JPEG tosh......that can be worked around usually.......more importantly for a semi serious underwater camera is the ring flash facility.......brilliant move Olly!

On DSCF0359 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (2 comments in total)

Really? I have looked at several now and can see some nasty artifacts I assume are JPG'ing but look a lot like camera shake also......not as happy as I was really wanting to be looking at these samples.

On DSCF0098 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Is there something wrong with this image (0098), seems to either be camera shake or JPEG artifact blurring, I was hoping for much better although not judging the camera on just one dodgy looking pic.

On Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows article (1396 comments in total)
In reply to:

bossnas: Pure photography? LOL! Digital photography more like.

Pure photography is using light sensitive materials that you can hold in your hand, cameras that don't need batteries to function. That's taking things back to the root of the invention of photography, pure photography. Making images without the need of a computer, making prints without the need of a printer or inks. That's pure photography!

Suave, there were quite a few SLRs that had selenium cell meters, not a battery in sight! Maybe you do not go back that far? ;)
