It would be nice if Fuji could also implement this firmware upgrade for the X-E2 as well.

SigmaChrome: 80MP, Medium Format ... Really? A Sigma DP1M, 2M or 3M can do very close the the same job for a tiny fraction of the cost.

And why "pounds - lbs"? You are writing for an international audience, Brittany. Most of the world now uses Grams and Kilograms. Pounds and ounces are pretty much passé.

@RichRMA. Please point out this supposed "fake detail". There are some very talented photographers using Sigma DP cameras on drones who are actually earning good money - from very demanding clients. There are, in fact scientists who do use Foveon technology precisely because of its colour accuracy. Plus people who use them for accurate colour reproduction of fine art.

On Canon 7D mirror box filmed at 10,000fps article (175 comments in total)
In reply to:

Anastigmat: The reason Canon and Nikon have dominated the professional SLRand DSLR market is their ability to manufacture high speed shutters and mirrors. In contrast, companies like Minolta/Sony, Pentax and Olympus simply could not and cannot equal Canon and Nikon in this area.

That may be true, but Sigma build a high speed shutter that is fully dampened and almost silent. Nikon and Canon shutters can wake the dead!

Lovely capture.

This is a really good shot. Well done.
It seems more lyrical than many of the other entries - more about the music and the artistic production of it than the glitz.

On Australian Tiger Snake in the -Snakes- (Full Rich Colours Only + Border) challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations, Kris. This is an excellent photo of the aggressive display of this species. It is a beautiful and very dangerous snake. I'm guessing you used a fairly long telephoto lens.

On Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: Sigma really has found their market niche.

Their cameras are designed for people who really value "being different" above all other considerations. It doesn't matter if they cost too much or perform too little as long as they are bizarre in some way.

No one can ever accuse Sigma of running with the herd. And the odds are, no one will ever be stealing their camera designs.

They probably should stick with what they do best.... making lenses, and leave grotesque camera designs for someone else.

And you, Marty, should probably stick to what you do best as well. Believe me, it's NOT commenting on a camera you have never used and passing judgement on an entire segment of the community you know nothing about.

On Evening light in the Beautiful world challenge (2 comments in total)

Well done! One of the very best shots in this challenge.

It bothers me that people are so attracted to bright, garish colours and all but ignore subtly and great composition.
