KeeChiuPeng: How does this compare with Nikon DF, D4s, 1Dx, 6D?
jimofcan: If Walmart doesn't Ante up and offer a fair price, and I owned the copyright, I would shred the negs in front of them. If they aren't of value to them, they are of less than zero value to me
I wouldn't sell to the Waltons for any amount, nor would I shred anything. I'd sell to some guy that wants to post the photos to the internet with the sole purpose of purely humiliating photoshops.
mwan: Just as the Oculus founder says, "Virtual reality's biggest enemy is bad virtual reality", I would say, "Light field camera's biggest enemy is bad Light field camera". And Lytro isn't good enough to be a consumer product, no matter in the hardware camera resolution or the software use cases.
"Much faster workflow"
That's arguable. Did you use one of the earliest? I own a Minolta RD-175. One hour photography + a car would have been quicker. Ridiculously bulky connections, external hard drives, no wireless to speak of anywhere, slow connection bandwidth in all but the luckiest of cases.
kbel: well i was not affected and could work normally in lightroom 5 and ps cc, i cannot understand all that negative critiques against adobe about the cloud model i think for independent photographer likes i am is ok to rent the software and anyway for professionals there is no alternative and to stay with ps6 forever will not be a good decision.
the only thing i am not happy about adobe ist that you can only pay with credit card, i had a problem with my payment last month and there is no alternative that should be alternatives for instances to pay by wirement or at least not to get blocked if once a problem about the credit card occcurs my account was cancelled so i had to redo a new subscriötion but had a good point they offered me now again 1 year for the special price .......
I also just hate the hell out of periods; sentences
InTheMist: I just got the old TC-14E II. I wonder if its worth upgrading.
Just a side note, the new price on the 400/2.8 is $3k more than before.
Is the $500 upgrade worth it?
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say "No".
Digital Photograph Rumors now?
Houseqatz: i jumped ship from an iphone to the lumia 1020, for the camera. however, if apple were to include OIS, and a high megapixel/large sensor, with their version of oversampling baked in, i'd be tempted to go back...
there are so many good ios apps that simply do not exist in the windows phone 8 ecosystem
and quite a few things it does worse.
Jogger: "...it shows that Apple is serious about camera technology in its devices." .. actually, no, not unless they put a larger sensor into their phone, which means some sort of hump, which goes against their design philosophy.
Not necessarily. They could build forward into the screen, giving a blank spot in the screen that serves as a button for the camera.
This is insane, of course, and you're exactly right, but I bet 10% of people thought "that's not a bad idea" as they read that first sentence.
beenthere: Canon/Nikon/Sony be afraid, be very afraid..
Meanwhile Nokia breathes easy as they just rid themselves of an hyper-ego'ed blowhard that contributed nothing, for all we know.
Three paragraphs on depreview and a tweet is worth exactly nothing in the real world.
John De Bord Photography: I really need to try the welding glass ND.....
It's really surprisingly sharp. Random photo someone posted to reddit the other day
Kiril Karaatanasov: DPREVIEW guys do you think many D4s users shoot JPEG? Can you compare RAW files e.g. d4 vs d4s? Also is 5d mk3 and A7 in same league at all? How about 1Dx? Best will be test against A7s which seems to be closest in terms of sensor to D4s
Well, congratulations on buying someone else's talent.
thx1138: New flash! Camera company announces camera that doesn't have world's fastest AF.
No one will buy it now.
Too bad the A7R didn't get this AF system, rather than the rubbish they dished out.
What?! You've got that backwards, sir. In no way would the SLT system fit under the e-mount, not even for APS-C e-mount.
Antisthenes: > The incredible craftsmanship that goes into hand making> a modern digital camera does not come cheap.
a) Japanese robotic high-precision NC machining station (Makino) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DehW94gLRKM
b) Probably Japanese CMOS imaging sensor (Sony ?)
c) Probably Japanese lens manufacturing (Panasonic’s wavefront interference optical surface checkers ?)
The Leica T will certainly be a fine camera, but the results of this kind of “craftsmanship” can probably be bought for much cheaper by buying a Japanese camera, methinks ;-)
NO! MY dick is bigger!
reginalddwight: 5 megapixel images? That is so retro for a forward-thinking product.
If nothing else, Lytro is finally making a product that resembles a photographic tool. The relatively high price point will likely prevent the Illum from gaining significant traction from a wider photographic community.
Ultimately, I see the company's technology bought out by a smartphone maker like Apple, Samsung, Nokia, etc.
I have to provide a dissenting opinion on 5mp not being enough. It's more than enough for an 8x10, and few people outside of photography enthusiasts (we're not a majority, people!) need to print any larger.
JATO: One more thing to waste money on... Does the brides family pick up the tab?
I presume, then, that you eat only homesown beans and grains and forego extravagances like heat above freezing and internet service?
Wasted money is in the eye of the beholder.
Zvonimir Tosic: 645D (and now same shaped Z) is unbelievably comfortable to use. Because of its unique ergonomics and weight distribution thanks to its elongated body, it is more comfortable to use it than any modern DSLR with a longer lens.
Because it pushes the centre of mass forward, towards the natural *resting position of human arms*. Modern DSLRs and mirrorless, being thinner, push the centre of mass further back, which induces extra stress on arm and shoulder muscles even when camera has a small lens on it.
It takes more stress on your muscles and shoulders to hold a DSLR or even mirrorless in front of your eyes with arms close to body than to hold a heavier 645D with arms in their natural resting position away from the body.
Try it yourself if you don't believe it.
Ummm... no. I don't want to fall in love with a $9000 camera.
I figure it's like IV heroin.
Hasa: I love wideangles and I am sad to see a camera that crops the understandably heavy and expensive wide angles like the 25mm. I found a significant impact on image quality in each step of my x3 upgrade path from 3.2 Mpix (Canon Powershot) to 10 Mpix (Sony R1) to 36 Mpix (D800) but I fail to see the big deal in going from 36 to 50 Mpix. I looked at the (downsampled?) flower pics here http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.uk/media/d941a0d7bc63895434b4b575933c0ad7/forUnderA3size__IMGP0144.jpg and compared to my own - also shot at 1600 iso. I am happy with the result even at the reduced color depth @ 1600 iso. The only thing the D800 needs is great glas - and maybe I should use a tripod :-) http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/6268509557/photos/2897622/a02_0727-our-garden-1More picels do make a difference if the glas and my photographic technique can cope. Kudos to pros who use this machine.
I don't think you're wrong. The MP upgrade is just *a little bit more.* The inherent advantages that come with sensor size are just *a little bit more*.
Finally, though, the cost is just *a little bit more*
In general anyway, still too rich for my blood.
ryansholl: Just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done.
Fortunately, a moderate-power handheld laser will immediately destroy this type of camera's aiming mechanism.
That was the joke.
Just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done.
DPNick: "order of magnitude"LOL!
Proof that DPR's business is garnering ad revenue and not so much the maths
