On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1180 comments in total)
In reply to:

AngryCorgi: As usual, Canon puts out another camera that get's spanked by a 4-year-old Nikon in the IQ department. When will they think about either (a) purchasing Sony's sensors or (b) partnering with Sony in some way to improve their sensors to be competitive with what Sony has been producing for more than half a decade??

BarnET,

Nikon D90 dynamic range > Canon 7D2 dynamic range...Nikon is 7 years old and was their SECOND APS-C camera that was a result of their partnership with Sony. I wasn't saying 4 years = more than half a century, I was implying that it's actually worse than just a 4 year lag. Canon has improved their LV AF, for sure, but they seem uninterested or incapable of improving the DR of their CMOS sensors.

Wait...I thought they closed their studio! Someone step on this slug and put it out of it's misery. Hassleblad has become a total joke.

What a poor performance in terms of sharpness all over the frame. The edges are poor and the center is average at best. Leica is fast becoming a joke. Gone are the days where you paid for a lot for Leica quality and were rewarded with great optics. This thing blows.

AngryCorgi: Success = what happens when Canon uses Sony sensors instead of the nonsense they fab.

Yes, many of their little throwaway cams use tiny sony sensors. This is the first time they've used a reasonably large sony sensor and the DR performance vs their own g1x sensor is night/day.

Success is not limited to a financial evaluation, fmian. Performance/Value of product, in this case, is a success.

photo nuts: US$750 for a slow zoom lens... hmmm...

Canon has IS and pentax zooms of late have a track record of spotty calibration/centering. Nikon's 16-85 is crazy sharp, is built like a tank, and can be had for $620 at best buy. Pentax always overpriced ALL of its lenses.

Pentax pricing is always subject for a good giggle.

In reply to:

PHOTOJOE55: Samsung may be a little late, but they catch up fast! They could have taken a few more images of their Model...

It's easy to forget! 6 years passed between the archaic R-D1 and the modern Samsung APS-C with no real intermediate camera to span the two concepts. The R-D1 was sold for 3 years with no only very minor hardware/software updates. Time moves faster now, it seems. 2004 seems like ancient history and now mirrorless cameras are being released left and right by every manufacturer.

$500 for a 1MP camera for Instagram nonsense?? I feel like I'm being punk'd here. Ashton Kutcher should pop out any moment now...

Technically, the R-D1 was the first APS-C sensor'd mirrorless camera (that also happened to be a rangefinder style MF body). The Leica M8 was next, with a slightly larger than APS-C sensor. Samsung was the first to offer an APS-C in a mirrorless design WITH autofocus though.

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (933 comments in total)

Is it just me or does the design of the switchgear/buttons look like the work of Frankenstein? It looks to me like they borrowed control ideas from every camera manufacturer around, but didn't design the shape or layout of the control elements in a cohesive manner. It looks like some sort of hacked-together R&D platform, not a refined finished product. Very strange indeed.

On Photokina 2014: Hands-on with Leica X and X-E article (132 comments in total)

I like the X-E (aka X2 reskinned) look and rear thumbwheel thickness better than the newer styled X cameras. It's kinda weird that they are supposed to be in sorta the same family now but vary a good bit in small ergonomic touches.

I still think its a shame, from a purely artistic POV, that they changed the X1 pop-up flash into the X2 pop-up flash. The look of the cylindrical flash was way classier looking than the accordion-style pop-up flash that everyone else is using. If I was going to pay $2000 for such a camera, I'd want the more retro mechanical looking body/flash setup...but that's just me.

"The combined fast lens and superior glass allows for the brilliant and clear images one expects from Leica."

Superior to what? The bottom of a coke-bottle?? This is the most useless marketing comment I've ever read.

In reply to:

burnin: One small problem. The Leica X images look much better and are much more Leica like.
Maybe because the D-LUX is actually a Panasonic.

LOL. Absolute nonsense. You wouldn't be able to pick the Leica image out of a lineup of images from comparable cameras. Leica-shills never cease to act foolish.

I don't know why companies don't offer a 24P option. I hate the look of 30P video.

The only thing this has that I wish the LX100 had was the DNG format for the raw files.
