Framing could be a tad better (feet touching edge) but this is a cool shot :-)
Very cool shot :-)
Nice shot, well composed :-)
Now this is a great shot, fabulous subject, light and background, yes!
Great shot, these are not easy to capture!
Great shot, looks like smoke rising out of the funnel!
Fabuloous hues of colour :-)
There is some CA but it can easily be corrected and the colours are very good seen on a calibrated screen Great shot, well spotted, well taken, this would look fabulous blown up on a wall...
gpsgps: Whrere, oh, where is the tilt and swivel screen, eh?
It's always someone who's ignorant and never used a t&s screen that slams then.In addition to what's said above, any time you have the camera on a tripod and it's not at eye-level, it's sooo useful.I'll pick up a G17 if it has one and a lens that opens to 24mm.If we're lucky we'll also see one on the 5D Mk IV...
Well spotted, well taken !
One could say the dark background line aligned with the head is unfortunate, but that is a such a small element of this lovely photo that it is of small matter.Well done, well taken, good pic :-)
I would go a bit easier on the sharpening, but fabulous shot! :-)
zygh: Even though the concept looks interesting, the price is verging on the insane. Unless one owns the lens(es) worth thousands, I can't see this adapter being a solution for those of us with old Nikkor or M42 lenses. I would like to try one, but for the price, I'd much rather get a 1.8/35E or save a bit more and go for a SH 1.8/24E.Anyone else feels the price is excessive?
You're missing the point, this can in some cases give you a lens faster than anything on the market. The cost will most likely reflect the quality of the optics used, so yes, it is in part aimed at those who who "own the lenses worth thousands". But don't despair, we'll most likely see cheap versions appearing for you.
D1N0: Interesting, could they make this for dslr-bodies? Probably not...
Not in this case, it works because it converts a FF lens which has a wider image circle. On FF we would have to use larger lenses made for larger formats.
Deleted pending purge: All beginnings are hard, and always exposed to harsh criticism.But in two years time it will develop and people will accept it as normal, like everything else. This concept has potential - the rest is just technology.It's like the solar power panel story. Several years ago it was expensive glass wonder; today it's printed foil. But development has always been paid by those who wanted to have things right away.
This technology has limits that are going to take time and cost to overcome, unless a 540x540 pixel image is useful to you.
Lytro did not originally offer a "final photo" option, all you got was the "live photo" to refocus and play with. The low resolution was the real limitation, barely mentioned in reviews, and the user got limited options to exploit the photo taken.Hopefully if Toshiba decide to market a version, they will have more respect for the end user producing different jpg generating options.
dholl: More importantly, is this potentially damaging to a child's development? They are learning the 3D nature of our world, that objects have 3D-dimensions and can thus be identified. If by catching their attention we're showing them 2D cuddly animals instead of 3D, what might that mean for the kids' development of spatial awareness, and object-based reality?
Yeah, strap a live rat on top of your lens!
It's still too low resolution for serious use, but at least they're working on the software to provide new viewing techniques, albeit limited to using the data available. The grasshopper shows this could be fun for macro shots if they provide an "everything in focus" option. When we can have a one or two megapixel version it could become very cool...
Paradigm Grower: Judging by the time it takes to load anything, they seem to be generating a lot of interest. Either that, or the applet is just lame - literally in this case.
There's just a lot of data for this 'technique', even if the resolution is small :-/
