D1N0: Hopefully no critters or vermin were harmed during the shooting of these great pics.

So what...?

On Hasselblad unveils pixel-shifting 200MP H5D-200c MS article (247 comments in total)
In reply to:

Black Box: Just wondering. Who would need a 200MP photo and what for? Isn't this just another megapixel race only on a much higher price level?

PS I'm very happy for Hasselblad, though. With Don Luca finally nursing his bruised [donkey], the company is returning to what it does well. The winter of our disconent is gone?

Such as professional product advertising photography. Hasselblad provide an example of the differences between 1, 4 and 6 shot mode in their brochure ( http://www.hasselblad.co.uk).

"Another handy feature not often found on cameras in this price range is the ability to control the camera from your Mac or PC. You can adjust the majority of camera functions from your computer, though the one thing that's not available is a live view of whatever you're about to photograph."

What is the point of being able to control the camera if you cannot see from the remote what the is in the camera FOV...?

Looking forward to testing this. I have been waiting for a compact travel zoom to complete my EOS M system.

I wonder how many people would actually notice that these photos were taken with an iPhone

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2970 comments in total)

The built-in EVF sounds wonderful, but the loss of zoom range at the telephoto end is disappointing.

Wonderful work! Anyone who has tried macro photography of insects will appreciate the amount of patience involved in achieving such exceptional images...

le_alain: Where is the finder ?

The finder is in the same place as the one in the RX100 :-)

In reply to:

wootpile: Apart from faster lens / dof difference... the GM1 with kit lens runs circles around it in studio IQ scene. Smaller sensor, more pixels, much smaller package, same price... go figure.

Yeah right... except the GM1 kit lens only goes up to 64mm!

This camera will allow all those owners of Leica M lenses to use them without having to buy an 'M' body....

On Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II real-world gallery article (132 comments in total)

Portrait at ISO 3200 looks fantastic. Really excellent natural colours! Can't wait to get my hands on the G1X... :-)

Although I do not find the images particularly moving or inspiring, I am glad that DPR also shares such links as it is sometimes worth pausing and remember that what matters is capturing scenes that we consider extraordinary and the gear is after all just a means to that end.

On Samsung NX mini First Impressions Review preview (563 comments in total)

Be interesting to see what the IQ is like, but the specs look impressive and you get Adobe LR 5 thrown in for the price :-)

In reply to:

pwmoree: How to shoot RAW and at the same time send small jpegs to your tablet or PC I have never been able to find out. If you shoot large jpegs the transmission is rather slow. I liked the X2-pro but because of the above almost never use it.

Can't you shoot raw + jpeg?

On CP+ 2014: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II article (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

Menneisyys: BTW, Engadget's preview ( http://www.engadget.com/2014/02/13/canon-powershot-g1-x-mark-ii-hands-on/ ) also confirms the AF speed is very good:

"This G1 X refresh was comfortable to use and very responsive, from the speedy zoom toggle to the super-fast focusing. "

Nevertheless, as usual with Engadget's camera-specific articles (see for example their absolutely we-have-no-clue-what-we-are-writing-about articles on Nokia's imaging headships like the 808), the article is definitely written by someone not really into photography. He recommends the RX100 over the camera without even knowing how the IQ of the two cameras compare... lolz.

If you compare the IQ of the RX100 with that of the original G1X you will find that Canon wins hands down from ISO800 upwards. Canon is claiming a major improvement in terms of signal to noise.

In reply to:

Allen Yang: I'm wondering if this one is more portable than Canon S120, in terms of size.

P340: 103 x 58 x 32 mm (4.06 x 2.28 x 1.26″)
S120: 100 x 59 x 29 mm (3.94 x 2.32 x 1.14″)

S120 is more pocketable

Wonderful artwork!

I hope all the trolly geeks out there will refrain from posting their usual rants about how irrelevant this is to them...

In reply to:

Michael Ma: Wow, Sony a 7R leapfrogs any Canon or Nikon. Canon really needs to step up. Their days of purposely making cameras with lesser technology than their flagship is over. They need to not hold back now to stay in the business.

Canon still make the some of the best optics in the business and this is why they maintain their lead ahead of Sony.

A beautiful object which in the right hands will produce beautiful pictures. It is a little conspicuous for street photography, but for portrait work in the studio... Wow!
