On BBC examines 100 years of Leica article (24 comments in total)

Shooting with Leica, no 1/8000, no high speed motor drive, no auto multi points program and AF. The leicas work best, my opion with flim. so when you push the button you know what you will get, no looking at the LCD, there is one now. After you process or it processed you are rarely surprised. It is often a second camera, for the slow intimate times, were the sutter noise is very importan, like a movie set.

On Samsung NX30 Review preview (404 comments in total)

The camera has 1/8000, flash sync. 1/200. That an XT-1 does not have, but for $200.00 or so you get a much better camera over all.

On Lytro Illum in the hands of five leading photographers article (162 comments in total)

In 1932, just picked a date, the motion picture director would have the lens puller change focus on the car head lights and then pull focus on the man and women. Just do it slowly. Years latter some one transfers this motion picture to DVD. Now that it is digital, the footage was shoot in 1932, it would look like what these guys are doing, why is this earth stopping news. Kate Hepburn was hot when you could do this with a movie camera.

On Sony announces pricing and availability for Alpha 7S article (131 comments in total)

The low light King, we'll see tests? Then what. How about a camera that does things well over all. The move part, 4k, well I will leave that to those who know. It still has a AA fliter, so kiss some sharpness goodby. 12.2 MP, enough said. The days of 10MP cameras was years ago. Ok so by a A7R to go with it. Maybe buy all three A7s, Sony says yes. Maybe I am too tuff on Sony, their RX100 111 looks like a winner.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2979 comments in total)

Sony good work. Wide I think is more important the tele, a portrait can be made with a 70mm lens. The speed was more important. The EVF rounds it out very well. It will become even more of the King of the point and shoots.

On Light Field Cameras - Focusing on the Future article (133 comments in total)

A one inch sensor, that seems a bit to small to nothing more then a good point and shoot. I see the micro lens projecting the image. Back in the old days, when we lived in an Einstienen unvervise. But now that we have solved Unified Field we have deferent physics. If you transfrer and image though a device or projection, in the old days you lose quality, but do to change in unvervise it gains. If you take picture of a picture then enlarged it you would lose IQ, but now you gain. Changing the focus point can be useful. But the absolute IQ will be in the size of the sensor. You put in 10 Watt/sec of engery and get out 100 Watt/sec., some, from the old school may say no. But what do they know?

Bye the Bye who makes the lens for this camera?

MASSIVE, MASSIVE, MASSIVE FAIL DPR!!!!!!!

True, they should give equal time to Canon, the 1DX should have it's day. But I do not think it is a "MASSIVE FAIL(FAILURE)".

The D4s is an improvement, the Df is a small ways behind. I love that my X-T1 does well, about a F stop away. Next is the Sony A7S.

Well, this company makes about 1/3 of the Lens for the A7 line. It has 10 elements in 7 groups. It has 4 ED and 1 ultra Hi-Refraction lens. No Aspherical lens. It has a nine blades, rounded? The coatings multi? The lens looks to me like old Vivtars of the past. The image at Steve Huff, soft. It appears to be an OK imaging lens. If this lens is mated up with the new A7S, taking pictures via night lights may become into being.

On Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R real-world samples gallery article (272 comments in total)

Comparing the Canon F1.2 to the Fuji, the Canon will have more isolation. They both will somethings hunt in AF.In 4/3 there is the Leica 42.5mm f1.2, which will also hunt in AF, less isoltation the The Fuj. The best portrait lens for the money is the Nikon 85mm F1.8, it is also very sharp on the level with the rest above. The Leica is over all the sharpest,by very little. The Canaon is the least. All of these are excellent lens. The Fujion and Nikon are in the middel. CZ also makes a fine lens in the 85mm F/1.4.
Fuji's has the 14mm F/2.8, the 23mm f/1.4 and now the 56mm F/1.2 primes. All three of these lens get top reviews. Fujion glass is usually in the top trier world class lens. Cannot be the best all the time, but usually appears at the top of the list. Fuji is for real. I have the 14 and 23. My portrait is the 60mm F2.4. It hunts in AF some times, but is just super sharp.The 56mm F/1.2 is excellent lens, it comes from breeding.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2081 comments in total)
In reply to:

km25: If you look on line Leica seems as if they cutting back on the their line of lens for the M, the 35mm F/2.0 Sumicron is no longer being made?. Leica may being getting ready for AF. The T could be the beginning.
The closet camera comparison would be Fuji. The new X-T1 is more of a camera, would do better in low light. The Basic IQ wold be the same. Leica lens are excellent, but so are Fujion. The Lecia 23mm F2.0 as two asph elements, one more then their old, it should be a very nice lens.
Leica's frist serious AF camera is very menu driven, Fuji is more dial driven. Leica has gone Japanise and Fuji has gone German. So since I love my old Leica M7 so much, I stay with Fuji.

Leica is not disc. any new lens in their M line, I made a mistake. But I do stand by my state about changing over. I only wish they keep thoughs wonderful dails and for get about being an iPhone of cameras.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2081 comments in total)

I must say I AM SORRY LEICA IS NOT DICOUNTING ANY NEW LENS, I just did know how to operate the the site.

Steven Huff will love this camera. It will be the end all of any APS-C cameras. Forget about the numbers. It will be that magic Leica color and special Leica this and that. He will compare it to the Fuji X-T1. The Leica T will out perform the Fuji in Jpeg, RAW, low light and IQ. He will state that Fuji is poor optics maker no where near CZ and Leica. That the lens for Fuji are OK at best. That the CZ and Leica lens have that something special that a second level lens maker like Fujion cannot equal.
I would try to say this on his web site, he would not allow my opions to be down loaded. His opion of all Fuji cameras, except for X100, is that they are average and good try from a company, who we all hope can do better. When the Leica X2 came out he was the same, about how Leica just had that special special and that was that! Personally, I think the camera will create fine images.

In reply to:

Mike99999: Doesn't really look better than a "cheap" Nikon 85mm 1.8G, whether you use it on APS-C or full frame.

The Nikon 85mm F1.8 is an excellent lens at very good price. it is equal to their 85mm F1.4. The 56mm F1.2 is made for the Fuji, it costs more. The price in a few months will drop $150-200. The Fuji is made a liitle nicer and has what Nikon had for a long time an apture ring.The 85mm Nikon would be 135mm or so and be bulky with the adpture and MF. To bad you cannot put the Fujion on a Nikon 7100, as an F1.2 normal lens.

On In photos: 'Paris in the Springtime' article (67 comments in total)
In reply to:

samfan: Nice images, though, honestly, except the last one they don't seem that interesting to me personally.

BTW made today, these photos would not be slammed for IQ issues (maybe except the blurry one), because you aren't looking for IQ in a grainy BW document/street photo.

There is a reason, however, why Ansel Adams and other landscapers shot with medium format. Sometimes the IQ needs to be there.

Never saw B&W prints from Ansel Adams in medium format. I have seen color ones, they were for ads. They were very plain and unmoving.. rather bad. B&W large format was more for him.
