In reply to:

Felipe Rodríguez: Nice retro look, but too high price. Yes, it's a camera for hipsters with full pockets. I find much more interesting Sony's moves like the two A7 cameras...

Very few ones. But that's what I like about the A7 cameras... thinking of attaching a Leica Noctilux to them...

In reply to:

VadymA: Is this Sigma marketing idea to boost their sales? In order to get DPM system one would need to purchase three lenses, three bodies, three sensors, three batteries, not to mention accessories like three fast memory cards, three grips, etc, etc. All for over $3,000. And in addition you would need something else for sports and low light photography (maybe there will be DPM4 and DPM5 for that). And with every new model you would have to start from scratch all over again. Interchangeable lens approach sounds much more economical from consumer stand point IMO.

Agreed! I doesn't make sense, IMHO, such a fixed focal length, it's too limiting...

On Instagram responds to clamor around TOS changes post (79 comments in total)
In reply to:

Horshack: It's the same rope-a-dope strategy Facebook employs in all their ToS changes. It's designed to lull you into a false sense of security while they systematically keep pressing the ToS until they have the right to sell all your private information to the highest bidders.

I just cancelled my Instagram account...

On Leaving my DSLR at home: An iPhone experiment post (171 comments in total)
In reply to:

sean000: Nice article and great photos. However, I would add that there are many options in between an iPhone and a DSLR: High quality compacts that are not much larger than an iPhone (up to large sensor compacts), as well as interchangeable lens cameras like m4/3 and Sony NEX. You don't have to choose one extreme or the other. I get that you didn't want to make this honeymoon trip all about photography, but it looks like you still did. No you weren't hauling or fiddling with as much gear, but you still couldn't escape the fact that you are a photographer who obviously spent some time thinking about and capturing photos on this trip. In fact the apps can make the iPhone even more fiddly than a DSLR. I do take photos with my iPhone sometimes, but I can get the job done much faster with my DSLR or my Olympus OM-D (which fits in a much smaller bag and goes on all my family outings). Photographing the kids with an iPhone is just too frustrating ;-)

Agreed!

I have a Fuji X100 for such purpose. But, you know what? I'm barely using it since I have my iPhone...

Interesting camera. But the sensor is still too small for my taste. APS-C is the minimum for me.

On Canon offers EOS 5D Mark III firmware v1.1.2 article (26 comments in total)
In reply to:

Steve0902: Let's face it: despite the product improvements, it's hard to get excited about upgrading to this from the 5DMII, particularly in the face of the Nikon D800 with its 36MP, actually better low-light performance (per DxOMark), lower cost, and the widely-better-regarded Nikon lenses. While I don't know what I'd actually do with that many megapixels, I feel more like switching to Nikon than upgrading to the 5DMIII.

"widely-better regarded Nikon lenses"? I can't agree. Nikkor glass is good or even superb in many cases, but Canon glass is even better, and covering a wider range, IMHO...

bobbarber: Let's face it.

None of us will buy one.

I don't need nor want such a thing. Video is rather secondary for me...

In reply to:

Denton Taylor: I can't believe no one's complaining about the price hike! The 5D I and II were $2500 bodies. This is 30% more! I won't be upgrading from my mkII, altho it would be nice to have decent focusing for a change.

I've complained... :)

In reply to:

Felipe Rodríguez: I like most of the camera's specifications, and I'm sure it will be a killer piece of gear. But... if I would not own such a pile of expensive Canon glass, I would better go with the Nikon D800: nearly the same features but more megapixels (big files are important for me) for less money... I can't even consider a brand switch, but many people can...

Well, video is not my priority. Stock photography is. And then resolution counts...

On Just Posted: Canon G1 X studio test samples article (220 comments in total)
In reply to:

jonikon: With the release of the G1X studio images, it's now obvious to anyone who has eyes that the mediocre slow focusing lens in the G1X puts it at a huge disadvantage to the latest state of the art interchangeable lens cameras like the Nikon System One, Olympus Pen, and Sony NEX cameras. No doubt the Canon G1X will be a the first and last of it's type, soon to be replaced by a compact interchangeable lens camera in the genre of the Sony NEX cameras.

The two-fold question is why is Canon taking so long to enter the very fast growing compact mirror-less ILC market, and will their entry be worth the wait?

Agreed!

For me this slow lens is quite disappointing. I would rather go for a good fast fixed lens. Well, in fact, I've already gone: I own the Fuji X100... :)

The worst year in this photo contest: compose all - nothing is real
Well - in Spain, Greece etc. fake is everything, even the balance sheets of the Staten

Was the jury Spanish or Greek, perhaps? Your comment is inappropriate and xenophobic. You're stupid.

I'm glad I have not to earn a living as photojournalist... I'm not good with video at all! I realize the creative opportunities of DSLR video (I own a Canon 5D2), but I find very hard shooting video and, more specifically, editing it...

In reply to:

Bob from Plymouth: I can see the appeal of the digital-rangefinder design for people who like the retro look but in all honesty, if I was looking for this type of camera, I would rather have a Canon G1 X and £1300 in my pocket.

The Canon G1 X zoom lens is quite disappointing, in my opinion. Perhaps it is not a bad lens, but it is a slow lens indeed, and fast lenses are a must for me.

Direct link | Posted on Feb 3, 2012 at 13:20 UTC

The camera is a bit too expensive, IMHO. However, the lenses (assuming they're good) have an interesting price..
