river5: No OM.Why?We old olympus users have many OM lenses.Hope they manufacture one adapter for us.

Just emailed them to find out :) I hope it does work.

Hey Robert. The speed booster doesn't fit on the omd bodies. Or I would have one by now :(

This lens with hand held High Res mode.

Wow.

LOL @John Bean, new phone with a new autocorrect to watch out for... Good catch!

Absolutely brilliant interview, revealing and honest. Probably one of the most interesting things I have ever seen on DRP.

On article Lytro Desktop 5.0 introduces depth-based image editing (41 comments in total)

Interesting, as a great deal of this is software based Panasonic's new post focus feature which can use peaking style overlays could be used in a similar fashion... I think Lytro's best chance of success is their new virtual reality... imgine combining pupil tracking with focus for an utterly convincing Virtual Reality environment.

Truly fascinating, and a pleasure to look at and read.

Thanks!!

Blown highlights look fine to me. It is the sentence contrast that lets you know how bright it is outside.

A very compelling product offer... Very.

In reply to:

Turbguy1: Why not just record the time a well fills, and generate a time based map of "fill", with "un-filled" wells reporting charge from "photon count" if they don't fill?

Just expose long enough to get the "least filled" well to some nominal level of "fill" (expose for the shadows, process for the highlights...sound familiar)?

I was thinking a similar thing, but with any photosites that would over expose simply shutting off (no need to reset) so they have an accurate RGB value... but using exposure time for the enture frame to "boost" brightness in that area... noise should be a minimum as it has a full well saturation and it is a simple time calculation to increase brightness...

I am sure it is harder than that :)

Raw looks great!! Might finally have a replacement for my Panasonic tough camera.

The rules people here apply to photography are amusing... Don't use f22 fear diffraction, fear softness, fear bokeh, fear noise, fear blown highlights...

Then there are photographers, artists leading the charge showing these knowledgeable fearful for users what photography and art is.

Wow, if you could keep so the pictures from their focus control it would make focus stacking a breeze :)

Superb, a strong statement about ownership.

On article Analysis: Sony a7R II and RX100 IV autofocus systems (752 comments in total)

This is a great feature of mirrorless cameras and there are lots of them. My Olympus cameras have had good eye detection focus for a long time, and it really works getting critical sharpness right at the eye.

Mirrorless systems continue to grow with some astonishing technology advancements that really to change the shooting envelope of these cameras.

This one is pretty pricey, but to those who want it, it is feature packed.

alatchin: These are very interesting products... For those who clearly need speed over range this seems a compelling option... However the whole purpose of a zoom is versatility.

What we have done here is reduce some versatility in the range... well quite a lot really... for a slightly better noise performance.

I would be curious how well this would sell.

C'mon, one extra stop on the aperture vs 35-70 on the focal length... I think you are reaching. One stop... We are not talking night and day isolation at 24mm etc... But the difference between ISO 1600 and ISO 3200... Vs 35-70 for FL.

I dont think we are thinking about the same thing. Take shooting an event when you cant always get closer to your subject, a 12-35 will limit you when you have the camera to your eye as far a reach goes, and not by an insignificant amount.

A stop slower is a consideration, but not when you end up cropping a lot. If they come out with a matching 35-100 F2 it may work but you still have given up 100mm for 1 stop. Untill then, you shoot with a 24-35 and a 70-200? That is quite the gap.

Event shooters may or may not like this trade off

I was thinking more vs the 24-70F2.8 options
