On What makes the Microsoft Surface Pro tick? post (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

SemperAugustus: the Surface Pro received a 1 out of 10 score on iFixit's repairability scale — the worst any tablet has ever received

That doesnt mark bad against the tablet itself, just that they dont want it to be taken apart...

mauijohn: Five hours between charges..not much for air travelers...repair expenses could be 10 times more than the other laptop. so what makes the Mucousoft Surface Pro tick? nothing. except the price.... its a tick bite.

JAFO, this tab is a different beast compared to them...

Yea.....people were pretty disappointed with the iphone 5. Its an update. Not exactly an upgrade though. More evolutionary vs revolutionary. All they added was a longer screen and lte. thats about it. its a great phone.

The 5s will be in the same boat(same size and form), Or else they are going to anger ALOT of manufactures(cases and accessories)/developers(their app store, the only thing keeping them alive right now).

Nothing is keeping them from releasing a 6. just dont see it happening. Apples like canon now.

I fully support this post in ever shape and form.

Unlock and get the full potential. Its your device, you can do what ever you want with it. PERIOD

Deadcode: I have tried it, separated focus/AE is working, but video tweaks are not. It records 1920x1080, 30fps whatever you change. iPhone 5, iOS 6.1. Can anyone record more than 30fps video with iPhone 5?

Probably not, but you can up the bit rate for higher quality.

seeblue: As uptight as DPR has been over the years about other's use of THEIR "proprietary content", it's pretty amazing you're now promoting jailbreaking. Shame, shame.

No shame in anything. I unlock the bootloader on every android phone i have had to date. Just dont get motorola.....

Uping the bit rate is a major thing you can to to improve video.
Also if anyone can figure it out....DNG/Tiff vs jpeg....

davidbindle: So if the adapter was used on a traditional slr APS sized sensor - would the AF performance improve?
I have both a 5DMKII and a 60D. At times, I only want to bring one camera and that could often be the 60D especially if I want more reach from my 70-200 2.8. But if I could get 25.6mm at the wide end of my 24-70 2.8 (and at f2.0) that would be pretty cool!

I wonder if they even could make a pure Canon FF to Canon APS adapter. Perhaps this is an impossibility because they can only work with mirrorless cameras??

Just wondering

just mirrorless, the have to have room for the optics.

That 40mm is the perfect type lens on that adapter(due to the lens being small). its even a good FL.

I would prefer the F mount personally. alot of newer cheap lenses. (IE 50mm 1.8, 85mm 1.8 ect)
Most canon lenses are older then 2006.

I wish the AF would be slow....but acceptable vs slow and you can manually focus faster.

EYap: Personally I'd rather the manufacturers worked on a fast f/2 or f/2.8 lens speed and a zoom range of 20-200mm, or 24-200mm. If they can't do what Panasonic did with their FZ200 I wouldn't mind a variable speed of f/2.8-3.5.

F/3.0-5.9 is not an attractive option, considering many of these small cameras stop at f/8 on the other end. So what, just two stops on the tele end?

Like....panasonic?

WilliamJ: Do I read well ? The brand new Nikon Coolpix P520 battery is out after just 200 shots ? Is it the first of april today ?

200 shots per charge is a fail no matter how inexpensive the batteries are.

F4 is a gooD walk around wild life lens. Sigmas 100-300 F4 was AWESOME to have.

Sigma with:
Canon EF-mount PLUS Metabone x0.71 Speedbooster (Option for NEX folks):
FF 70-200 f4 x0.71 = 49.7-142 f2.8 x1.5NEX-APSC = 75-213mm f2.8*
APSC 12-28 f4 x0.71 = 8.52-20 f2.8 x1.5NEX-APSC = 13-30mm f2.8*

hmmm...

LOL....AW....i have given up trying to tell people this....They just really really are not getting it.

armanius: How many slow "normal" zooms do we need for m4/3? This is about 4 from Pany and about 4 from Oly now? Sigh ...

Its not. you can still buy it... but its not being kitted with anything. its been long gone

Direct link | Posted on Jan 30, 2013 at 03:57 UTC

An sharp 85mm 2.8 would have been much much much more useful.

If Sigma would make a SHARP(like their 35mm 1.4) 24mm 1.4, 30/32mm 1.4 and a 60mm 1.4 for Fuji,NEX, Samsung and M43(all NON IS, if you cant hand hold a 24/30/60mm steady, then you have problems) They would make a KILLING.

They would have the fastest native lenses for NEX.

Of coarse lets say at the same prices of the 50mm 1.8 os and 35mm 1.8 os and 599 for the 24mm 1.4

I was hoping the 30mm 1.4 would be for nex/m43/fuji/samsung

Direct link | Posted on Jan 29, 2013 at 23:10 UTC as 11th comment

If its better then the old then why not... It would be nice if it at least matched the old 14-45 lens.
