Dheorl: I'm impressed at how little screaming about equivalence there's been. Maybe that phase has at last passed.

I've noticed reviewers mentioning that diffraction starts at a smaller F-number on smaller sensors.

On FroKnowsPhoto guide to DSLR video now available article (160 comments in total)

The Canadian Camera Store TV with Chris Niccols is way more professional and educational with plenty of good style. The "fro" circus-style character is not very worthy of promotion...

You have to admit, though, that they have a point. And as much as you call them annoying 'evangelists', they would be annoyed and call people MFT fanboys when try to convince everyone that most MFT lenses can perfectly give a photographer the same DoF control as an APS-C camera.

Or they've just given up expecting DoF control with 4/3 sensors...

Damn! I was hoping to get a version with snail skin...

I wonder how this compares to the 18-135mm WR... 2mm difference is very close in FL, even when it's in the wide end and considering the 1.5X.

It will face stiff competition from the 1-stop darker but AF-enabled and excellent performer M.Zuiko 45/1.8.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2702 comments in total)

Look at the 12th green hair, on the right of first brush at the top, behind the 5th dust spec from the right, smack in the middle of the darker hint of shadow to the left: there is suggestion of increased noise in the blue channel!!! Unacceptable!!!

On Pentax launches K-S1 Sweets Collection article (231 comments in total)

At long last! I can now get one to match my wife's white-pink desk. Well done, Pentax, great stuff!

LX100 performs better (RAW) than all small-sensor compacts but is found lacking compared to large sensor compacts and DSLMs. As expected...

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1659 comments in total)

I have the impression that it should be "At Canon, we see the impossible". What happened to the article 'the'?

That's nice marketing stuff but the market demand requires products to do the trick. Canon has not reached the milestone of miniaturisation yet and has not provided a good reason for it. I love my 6D, it's the best FF DSLR for me on the market but I do long to see Canon breaking through with a new "EOS" vision.

An EOS M with fast AF? :-)

photo perzon: For the same money and weight and size, the APS-C Fuji X-A1 and the perfect 27mm pancake produce immaculate samples.

It sure is apples to oranges: XA-1 has a 16MP APS-C 1.5 FOV sensor and LX100 has a 12.7MP crippled almost-4/3 sensor...

Absolutely, and it is cheaper...

JPEG only? What's the point?

RStyga: The sooner we accept that m4/3 is not designed for very shallow DoF the sooner we will be able to enjoy shooting using this system without obsessing about its limitations. Stop squeezing it; no more DoF juice will come out... it is what it is. You want to maximise DoF control, shoot large format (if you can) and be merry.

In addition, shallow DoF requires the approrpiate technique to make good use of it in a photograph.

On More manual control on iOS with Manual Cam post (46 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bruce McL: I have a question. Are there any options for saving files, such as TIFF or maxJPEG? I like to get the most resolution possible from my iPhone images, and I do see a difference with TIFF or JPEG at 100 percent compared to Apple's standard camera app files.

That's what 645 Pro states. Take it up with them... I have seen a very big difference between 645 pro and the iphone camera app at 100% crop.

I never use any of these controls myself; it simply takes better shots because of the lossless sensor output.
