In reply to:

stevens37y: So Leica has sent the battery already.

LMAO

It's an early alpha version of the battery - should be kept in the fridge at night. For better results you can upgrade to a battery from the reputable Acme power.

Yanko Kitanov: 1. Poor jpg color rendition
2. Poor lens performance, especially in the corners...btw it has very familiar distortion pattern...:)
3. Color banding at ISO 3200

A) I am talking about the DPR samples converted in ACR from RAW.
B) I am talking about color banding which is different from chroma noise which you call blotching. Every sensor has chroma noise at ISO 3200 if you use no chroma NR. Mind that ACR always uses a certain degree of it at high ISO, but the better converters can show how much noise is there. Chroma noise is not usually a problem as its reduction is almost non destructive to the colors and tones in the shot.

Cheers!

The color banding is not due to the jpg engine(which is obvious in ACR converted images at ISO3200) It is due to the sensor performance and more precisely to the sensor setup that Leica made since the same sensor showed no banding in other cameras.

The kit lens is sold at a high price. Given its performance it seems quite overpriced for such a low quality product, I hope other lenses will be better.

The battery will come later as it is in the process of gold plating - this should add an exceptional value to the IQ.

They licensed a Sony NEX for times the price - they could at least license the battery too LMAO

The brushed aluminium body will cover with scratches in a week - "good design" :-))))

Yanko Kitanov: Leica - do you believe your customers are idiots to whom you may lie regarding "optical corrections" while they are buying a Sony NEX cam with Sony NEX glass for 10x the price?? A pathetic way to show that you are going down.

@doug Now I get it- you are one of those buying the brand and not the product, this explains all. Btw I own several Leica cams and a collection of Leica lenses and accessories from 1943 to present.Regarding the STFU you should find some inner strength to change your attitude as it is quite destructive for you the way you keep it, not to mention the younger public reading here. Also aggression gets you nowhere and used in person it could lead to...well you should be glad it is not in person ))) Good night mate.

@smorti I base my point on the fact that the sensor and the lens are modded Sony products and not the design. You'll see that in tech reviews later.
You said I insulted someone? No, I just pointed out simple facts based on a post - they also apply to you I guess ;) And you can try to answer fluently in my native language or any of the languages that I speak fluently ;)

@Doug - Please use more civilized language if your IQ allows you to do so. And don't STFU users that may not care how they get a result that is already there with a 10x less expensive cams but do care why they should overpay. Now you can go to your room and think about the language you use in forums where kids are readers and the psychological reasons that make you do that ;) haha

Yanko Kitanov: Good old NEX C3 for 10X the actual price...good engineering Leica....

It's all about being stupid enough to overpay 10x the price of an already dated sensor... One can take poor pictures with any camera and one can use actual Leica glass on E mount.

I am selling my good old NEX C3 to get a new C3 for 10X the actual price...
HAHAHAHAHAHA

On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (611 comments in total)
In reply to:

philinnz: this is the first sentence in the conclusion "The X-T1 is Fujifilm's most ambitious camera to date, and we'd have to say, probably its best"

Has DPR forgotten about the Fuji S5 Pro? That was Fuji's best camera

And it uses far better lenses :)

AndreSJ: As a bokeh lover am i the only one who finds it a bit messy and static like?? Very sharp lens though

new boyz - you should spent more time reading and researching, every point you mad is wrong, but you sound so sure that it makes it even worse...

Direct link | Posted on Apr 20, 2014 at 14:38 UTC

Poor bokeh, horrid out-of-focus areas and poor focus-transition rendering...this is welcome though as it makes the original (and better in these areas) Sigma 50 1.4 cheaper! :-)

On DxO releases FilmPack 4.5 article (36 comments in total)
In reply to:

Yanko Kitanov: Every person who has experience with film can clearly see how FAR from the actual results are these crappy emulations, their hue shifts are not only inaccurate but simply opposite in most cases, e.g. Kodachrome 64 is one great slide-film that has absolutely nothing to do with the terrible emulations by DxO. And by the way we can all tweak hue, lightness and saturation and match the contrast so that we can produce accurate film imitations and at RAW level, not this crap.

@demarcuswood
A) Degrading the IQ of the picture in an unacceptable and irreversible way
B) Not matching at all the profile characteristics (tone curve and hue shifts, etc) of the claimed films

I have developed several film emulations at RAW level for Capture One and for Silkypix and if DxO care to check them and compare I am open to submit these to them for analysis together with well motivated explanations of the key characteristics of the emulations I made.

Cheers!

In reply to:

rrr_hhh: Speaking of Adobe products : who took their special CC offering for photographers ?

I thought hard about it, but no : I will drag CS6 as long as I can and own LR5.

I'm still angry about the way they deals with long time customers (I have it since 1996), updated to CS6 just a few months before CC was launched and felt that last update was wasted. Then came a special offering until the end of December for owners of CS6, then a few months later they made it available for anybody, and shortened the delay to the 2th December previous owners included.. Then they prolonged the delay until the 8th December. Then their servers were hacked and my credit card number probably stolen. How can I trust such a company ? They don't know where they are going.. Apparently their offering wasn't getting as much success as they hoped, or why would they make it last longer ?

rrr_hhh - These are some of the reasons why I decided to try Capture One and now I am more than happy with it - it is far better in any aspect and is a tool developed by photographers for photographers and not by programers(who think they know better than the users what the users need) for photographers and it is not discriminating users of cameras other than Canikon.
