On Opinion: Did Sony just do the impossible? article (1045 comments in total)
In reply to:

justmeMN: This opinion piece includes an impossible amount of hyperbole. :-)

dpr opinion pieces are rare, but this one is well placed (in my opinion). The hyperbole is s well, as dpr might have to create a new higher award for this camera as it potentially blows all the "gold award" bodies out of the water. Platinum award anyone?

rialcnis: I'll take one of each. The body, the drone, the screen, the4K recorder, the remotes, the follow focus and rail system and all the attachments. Now how much is that?

Someone needs to come out with a $500 4k recorder and this studio cam will flying off the shelves.

Josh152: This nice and all but what I would love to see from Tamron is a wide angle f/2.8 zoom on the level of their 24-70 and 70-200 so Tamron has a full trinity to compete with the Nikon and Canon versions.

Aerial photography = sense.

Many other low light, static subject, moving camera uses.

On Perseid Meteor shower over Mt. Baker in the Starry Starry Night ! challenge (4 comments in total)

oh wow, I guess I didn't check back to see that people liked the shot. :) I focused on the mountain/sky. The meadow in the foreground is not sharp, but I liked it for color and balance drawing you into the sky.

On Canon announces seven EF Cinema lenses article (68 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tom Caldwell: Just think of the primes as limited editions (prototypes?) for some as yet unannounced "stills" camera for the masses. Interesting that not only can they be focused manually but they have manual aperture control and will suit a FF sensor. This is a major departure from the current EF electronically controlled aperture. Is Canon about to obsolete it's current EF range of lenses? - hardly dare one might think.

Pricing? Adjust demand to cover the hand assembly of very specialist lenses which would never be expected to sell in any quantity. Too big a demand? They will put the price up.

Manual aperture control is standard and necessary for most film shoots and likely would not be carried over to still cameras.
