On Cold War camera: 1950s Berlin in color (part 1) article (119 comments in total)

Great photos. Thanks for posting them.
Love seeing the change people can make when they are given the opportunity.

Its funny how the post war "Wirtschaftswunder" never seems to take a lasting foothold in the far east and middle east. The US never seems to liberate them all the way till the end I guess.
I guess they are not making the same mistakes like they did in Germany, where they just managed to stay and rebuild the country for 30-40yrs.

I wonder why they haven't curved the arc a bit outward. That would have given it a more around 3d look and perspective.
But its kinda cool, but ultimately pointless...

Cool But FAKE!

Its not like any of those people took those selfies in the middle of the ocean, also They totaly missed the question by placing them IN the ocean.

Nice try though... BTW, spelling error in the question DPR...

AV Janus: Wouldn't this be possible with say Olympus 5-axis IBIS?
Maybe a ultra quick global shutter would come in handy to?

If yes, then I dont see sensor resolution, diffraction etc. as being the obstacle in the future for higher res photos.

Front to back movements where talked about regarding in body AF function, I guess tilting would also be cool.

Lot of inbody progress to go IMO. Cool features to make!

Fine up-down, side to side movements paired with global shutter with a 5-6MP supersensitive sensor. WOW, superresolution! :-)

On FlashQ: The little cube for flash photography article (53 comments in total)

I pledged 55$
Looks interesting enough! Small size is definitely a bonus here. It also looks like battery life is 100k fires. That sounds over reaching, maybe, but if its 1-2k I will be happy. :-)

Now I hope they will make a future TTL version. That would be awesome. Probably very complicated cause of all the brands, and because many prefer to shoot manual when off camera.

Feeble battery in hope of style but will be adequate for small kits and fun photoshoots.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2301 comments in total)

What is bad here is the fact that they are playing word games or just lying to make people accept the lens prices more easily.

IMO prices were "acceptable" before this info, now they are about 500$ to expensive counting in a Leica brand name premium in them.
Bran name that is worth less and less if they keep on lying withou need.

On Sony SLT-A77 II First Impressions Review preview (640 comments in total)
In reply to:

awaldram: Whats with dropping the minolta flash mount.

Hardly mentioned but seems to biggest 'News' in this camera obsoleting all Sony flashes.

Does the ISO hot shoe support any kind of TTL as it looks like single pin , so is there data fed over it to support TTL

Come on Dpreview inquiring minds want to know.!

AF hold and fps/af priory are old hat being on previous cameras at this level , You've even reviewed one recently (k3) it's not new and you should be reporting it as expected/required rather than new tech.

Sony has flashes?

On MIT algorithm predicts photo popularity article (97 comments in total)

It looks to me like the MIT guys ran into a typical back testing hindrance.
They took the idea that sounded good, took some old data and tweaked the algorithm so that its results correspond to data.
Only thing is, its unreliable for new data! LOL!
Postdictive Error!
