goloby: or just get a fuji x-e2 + 18-55 + 23, cheaper, faster and, may I say, better looking

JackM, I had the same issue in the first days with my x-e1, then I turned nr to -2 and sharpness to -1 for the primes, for the zooms you can leave sharpness at 0. Remember, in weird Fuji engineers language 0 is not 0, it is actually medium. -2 is 0 or off

On Ricoh announces medium-format Pentax 645Z article (160 comments in total)
In reply to:

iae aa eia: I think it was supposed to be already mirroless, with a nice EVF, and its sensor 56 x 41.5mm, as it was the 645 film frame area. 33 x 44mm looks like what the APS format is to the 135 full-frame, a cropped sensor to cut their investment some slack. Not a true medium-medium. Just medium.

Dear ogl, you obviously have never experienced true 645, let alone 6x6, 6x7, 6x9

goloby: AF sensitivity down to -4eV WOOOW!!! Not even 1Dx or D4s do that!!!!

New boyz, you might be right in theory, but I never played with a mirrorless that focuses as good as my D90 in low light. And the D90 is not stellar in that regard, as it's sensitivity goes only to -1eV.
A7 has a sensitivity of 0eV. The best dslr's have -3eV. So this new A7s in theory should be a beast on focusing in low light.

On Fujifilm X-T1 First Impressions Review preview (1657 comments in total)

I always loved the Fuji colors, in my opinion they are the best. Fuji lenses are stellar as well. But one thing will keep me from buying this camera and that is the crop sensor. I need bokeh, I love my 50mm f1.4 and I do not want it to be a mid tele, I want it to be a 50. Same with the 35 f1.4. For anybody that thinks oterwise please rent a ff camera with either a 35 or a 50 1.4 lens and you will be hooked.
One question about this camera's autofocus, how low can it go? 0 eV like Sony's A7, -1eV like most Nikon dslrs or -3 eV like Canon's 6D?

goloby: 1/60 flash sync. Ha, good luck getting sharp results at that speed

I am still shooting more film than digital and a slow flash sync is not an issue with everyday photos. But try freezing fish or wobbling see weed at 1/60

What they need to do is a digital FE2 with a full frame sensor in it. That's what they should have done in the first place. You could still use the old manual focus lenses if you wanted small lenses and the AF 50mm f1.4, AF 20/24/28mm f2.8 and the AF 85mm f1.4 are not big at all and it's all you need

In reply to:

goloby: Or just shot film!!!
I have tried both earlier versions of Dxo Film Pack and current Nik Software and, as a film shooter, none came even close to the actual films. I used raw D90 files. I think it all boils down to 3 insurmountable things:
1. how can you create a plug-in that will make a D4 file and a D5000 file to look exactly the same. Only way to do that is to have different settings for different cameras and I have not seen that. And there are a few hundred digital cameras with raw capture. I would not even mention the others.
2. film captures light differently than digital. To mention a few differences: more tonality, wider dynamic range for professional films. For a digital sensor it is just not there to begin with.

I might have a read at that site later, but I'll just say that I have overexposed by 3-4 stops Portra 400 and everything was there, pictures came out great. You might even underexpose it by 1 stops and still get beautiful results. Now try that with any digital. And when I mean overexpose I mean metering the scene with a Minolta ligt meter, incident reading and I do know how to use it.

3. I'm sorry, but I never heard of those 2 labs. For E6 and C41 should be straight forward, but what about the scanning equipment. I use a V700 and it is crap compared to a Nikon 9000ED. And please do not say Fuji Frontier or Noritsu Koki, they are a joke next to the 9000ED, or an Imacon X5 in all fields except speed.

As plug-ins, both are great and do help create very nice images.

P.S. this was not a film vs digital rant, both are just too different to compare, I use both and love both

goloby: I'm sure the sensor will focus fast, but there's no way the motor in those lenses will focus anywhere near as my d90 with the 50 1.8d, not to mention a D3x with some pro lenses, it's just marketing

read carefully, the only word used is CAMERA, there's no mention of any lens

For current owners of compact cameras, this looks like a really nice upgrade.

yeah right, at 650$ there's nothing better out there, lol

On Nikon shares rise as Nikkei suggests mirrorless launch article (115 comments in total)
In reply to:

michaelrz: I quite disagree with those who dismiss the 2.7x crop factor.
Many photographers enjoyed (and still do) the Canon s95, the Oly xz1 or the Pana lx5 type of cameras, in spite of their obvious IQ inferiority compared to DSLRs.
Getting an interchangeable lens camera about their size with a noticeably better IQ, small, lightweight lenses and high quality optics would be a tempting offer to many, IMHO.
Provided of course, that camera and lenses are priced reasonably by Nikon.

actually f8 on 2.8x crop would be more like f22 on apsc and f32 on ff...
so f2 on 2.7x would be f5.6 on apsc and f8 on ff
