TallTommy: Amazing that there are now four A7 cameras and still only one large-aperture prime lens for this system.

Any full frame lens on the planet will work on the A7, it's amazing how DSLR fan boys are such BS artists.

On A closer look at the Nikon Coolpix P900 megazoom article (181 comments in total)
In reply to:

ProfHankD: This is one of the few ways in which small sensors can still win. The camera's lens is huge... until you compare it to other lenses approaching 2000mm f/6.3. My closest FF lens is a 1250mm f/11 mirror lens; it could swallow about 4 of this camera, and it produces bokeh full of doughnuts. On the other hand, the sensor here is around 5.6X crop factor, which means the lens focal length range is really about 4-350mm... which explains why it is so much smaller than my mirror lens. Of course, that is still an awesome optical achievement: a typical 70-200mm f/4 FF lens is bigger than this lens. The price is also impressively low.

In sum, this seems like one heck of a versatile camera for the price. On a pan/tilt mount, this could be an amazing security camera. It probably is fixing a multitude of optical sins in firmware, with IQ suffering somewhat, but it's still darn impressive.

I have shot videos using my telescopes like my 2350mm F10 Celestron and Meade 920mm F9 APO.

I would prefer the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 superzoom with larger 1" sensor and 4K UHD 2160p video for $130 more.

On Adobe details OS support for next version of Lightroom article (229 comments in total)
In reply to:

write2alan: Well, the new version of LR will make millions of computers unusable and will probably end up in landfills over all the world. What else is new? Don't they have any concerns for the environment?

64 bit AMD and Intel CPUs have been out for 10 years now so why would you want to upgrade to LR6 on anything older ? Use the current version of LR on very old PCs.

On CP+ 2015: Canon shows off prototype 120MP CMOS sensor article (255 comments in total)
In reply to:

kelpdiver: Noting the comments already that Canon announced this a long time ago.

The resolution given is just a stone's throw away from 15360x8640, which sampled in 2x2 pixel bins would give you rather nice 8k video. (well, the slightly smaller 2 x UHD resolution). That would be 132MP.

Obviously 9fps doesn't cut it, unless it's a gopro. But eventually eventually there will be demand for such a sensor. Good 8k is said to be as close to our own vision as it gets, or so it was claimed about the displays of the swimming at the London Olympics on such screens.

"Obviously 9fps doesn't cut it, unless it's a gopro. "

GoPro @9fps ? I don't think so.

PhotoKhan: NOW, they're going to crush Adobe...lol...

The last time I checked Apple was in business to make money and they made a profit of $18 Billion in the last quarter, more than any other company on the planet. Adobe on the other hand made $88 Million.

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (1451 comments in total)
In reply to:

R Stacy: For around the same amount of $mula you can get a new full frame 24mp Sony A7II with 5-axis IBIS and FE 24-70 Zeiss. Where speed is an issue, you can clip that same lens onto an A6000 that was tucked in your pocket. Kind of a no-brainer for me.

Go price another camera with internal cinema 4K (4096x2160) and large APS-C sensor.

Get the 12mp full frame A7s if you don't want to see noise @5000iso like that of a 28mp APS-C.

On Canon EOS-1D C sees $4000 price drop in North America article (249 comments in total)
In reply to:

Don051348: I guess I don't get it. If video is so important to some individuals why not buy a dedicated high end video camera instead of a stills camera that a manufacturer has slapped video capabilities into. If it looks like a dslr it's a dslr.

The Sony FS7 E mount video camera is light years better than the 1D C for video.
