I find it enjoyable to see your work and learn something of your approach to photography. I like your shared blog too and have it bookmarked. You have much to add to our world Sensei... Thank you.

Hi .Sam
Stating which ones/companies/programs whatever, as being much better, cheaper etc. - is much more of a help. Thank you. Nic

On Sony a7R teardown! Roger Cicala gets his hands dirty article (136 comments in total)

Do you think the other manufacturers are taking notes on the simpler and cheaper build? Would be nice to see things get this way across the industry.

C1 does not include Pentax 645 D or Z support... probably never will.

stanic042: I like the lack of moiré and increased detail

Corner softness. Doesn't sound like it will be great for FF.

Considering the conditions you had to experience, a great effort I think.
I imagine you had to smudge your clothing and equipment afterward
;-P
Thanks for sharing.

Edgar_in_Indy: I've heard from a reliable source that the change was related to issues with the pixie dust.

JustDavid: ...and this new 70-200mm F2.8 example was due to be the first full frame lens to be graced with the Star designation...
Not exactly correct, there were Pentax FF* (FA*) lenses back in the film era, some of them are still available to buy. This would be the first digital optimised Pentax FF* lens (D FA*)

They likely mean since Ricoh took over the helm.

Just... wow. Thank you.

gbunton: There are much better options, nothing is free. I work in the Silicon valley tech sector, and i can tell you stay away from Google if you want to maintain some sense of ownership of your images.

Appreciate knowing what the better options are. Thanks.

Thanks for the update.
Can you please fix the link for "Nikon's Peers" on page 10 of ISO Invariance:
http://www.dpreview.com/previews/nikon-d7200/10
Btw, how does the Pentax K3 compare for ISO invariance?
Thank you again.
Nic

fisherman_lol: To DPR Moderators; This jpino79 guy is been flooding this forum all day with his inflammatory comments and you are not doing anything about it? I think if he was bashing CANIKON he would be banned for life. ;)

For all the grief some nutty pentaxians have given dpr, I wouldn't fault them for letting him go at it ;-P

In reply to:

Wallace Ross: As a happy current K-3 owner I will not likely be upgrading but the pixel shifting is intriguing I think that it has the possibility to make the K-3 II the best camera available for copying art work. Even higher megapixel cameras don't reproduce colour accurately around edges.

I'm more than curious how this will serve areas like product photography... a huge boon over buying a Z...
Or a stepping stone to getting a Z :-)

ttran88: Looks like Pentax's new FF camera will be having sensor shift tech. Thanks Ricoh for innovating when the two market leaders are just hanging loose.

Re: 4 and 8 exposures - That's only one small part. The Ricoh tech adds something totally different that isn't dissimilar to foveon tech at the end result.

Re texinwien>

solarider - how is it different than the high resolution sensor shift mode on the recently released Olympus OMD E-M5 II, other than the fact that the K3 II only records 4 photos, while the E-M5 II records 8?

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1251 comments in total)

First camera to my knowledge that's hit so many excellent ratings out of so many parameters in one go. I imagine 6 months from now the FW improvements might continue to up the performance, at least I hope they can achieve this.

One hell of a shot across the bow of the whole industry. We'll see how Samsung will fare in a few years - and competitors how they respond. Remarkable stuff.

Mr Bean: I believe the higher quality mobile phone cameras are reducing the number of "consumer" camera sales so much, that the higher end cameras aren't getting the R&D budgets.

Pardon me while I take this call on my Canon mobile phone.
