it's not just about a "look" always. film has much higher logevity. it let's you shoot more consciously as the footage is really limited. I'd prefer some new system with 16mm cartridges. Watch how beautiful "Carol" turned out to be, entirely shot on super16.

lylejk: Here's the better idea. Take someone's digicam output and convert it into Super-8 format. That service would get you much more film business I bet. :)

film has global shutter by it's nature

time lapse, single frame would be nice. would also be cool to revive 16mm this way. bolex for the digital age. I have been shooting tons of S-8 with my bauer cameras as well as many others, so I'd give it a try.

draschan: incredible little machine. the LX100 seems like stiff competition also having a larger sensor and much nicer controls. both lack a touchscreen. the face detection worked fast. tough call. the rx is more pocketable. the lx100 lens is amazing, at 12mm I loved it more than the oly 12mm.... tough call or win win situation.

with stiff competition I simply referred to my personal choice and likings. I chose the gf7 as a compact for now as I have quite some m43 primes floating around. I was not comparing marketing chances and the liike, simply comparing theses amazing machines and see what they have to offer. the lx100

On article Nikon D750 Review (1979 comments in total)

The D750 is on my radar mosty for the excellent handling of shadows and underexposure. I will be shooting against windows in a church a lot. Do the D610 and D600 have the same sensor with the same shadow recovery? I read about a one stop higher DR for 750 compared to 610. Does the 810 behave as nicely (I do not need the res but I need the shadows) would also go for a A7 or A7r. Did some recherche but could not come up with definite data. Please help me out people. it looks like one can't do nothing wrong with buying a 750. the only reason I think about the A7 or A7r is for the use of the (for my use) much more suited canon 24 shift lens. I'd go and get an A7 if it's shadows hold up as well as the D750 and see what comes around in 2015 (megapixel, dynamic range, price war, yo, fight for me )

deep7: It's actually quite nice to see this "record" temporarily being held by one of the world's great landscape photographers and for such a fine image. He isn't just a very good photographer but is very fussy about print quality and talented at marketing (obviously!!).

Recently, this record was held by one of the blandest photographers I've ever "seen", a photoshopped image of a river bank. That was much harder to comprehend.

I should note that an internet reproduction will only ever give us a general idea of what the image looks like in the flesh. I'll bet this one is a stunner. It's a bit like seeing a real Constable painting, compared to one on a place mat or biscuit tin. No comparison at all!

gursky as a joke as well. at least his sales are for real. this looks like a fraud and I don't understand why all photo sites write about this without further recherche. there is artfacts.net and artnet.com. for starters. someone got an account?

On article Medium well done: Two takes on the Pentax 645Z (250 comments in total)

the test images do no justice to this truly amazing camera. the pentax 645d has alreadybeen an amazing machine. it is a wonderful tool when not abused to make random snapshots without focus, composition, subject etc. everyone who knows what MF can do would be glad to have this camera. it is a huge step forward to have such quality (in the hands of capable photographers) available for such a low price. if I'd have the money I'd get it immediately.

draschan: just tried it for a day. a friend got the fancy leica version. it's an excellent excellent camera. the lens is simply amazing. the controls are phantastic!!! aperture on lens, time and compensation dials. nice viewfinder (although I have little comparison with viewfinders). fast, reliable. and the lens. did I mention it? the lens. it is 1,7 -2,8. the wide angle seems better than my excepensive olympus 12mm. It is a loveable camera. don't see much (or any) difference to my gm1 concerning the 12 vs 16mp. I personally would prefer a touchscreen and I'm not sure why it's not included. the extra leica lens hood is also great... as far as I can tell all panasonic I used did amazing video, I am looking forward to test the 4k (and extract 8mp images from it). so only downside: if you like touch then wait or get the lovely gm5. panasonic is really trying hard to please their customers.

hey, I didn't want to start a flamewar here. just saying the lens of the LX100 is amazing. it's a beautiful machine for taking images.

minzaw: IMHO Rich GR has better IQ(APSC) where as LX100 has better AF,macro,Low light,zoom and 4k VIDEO +/- stills capture.

the rico has indeed better IQ and amazing lens. hope rico will update it soon and add higher pixel count and faster lens. it is still an amazing camera even it would be nice seeing it revamped.

Alphoid: Looks like I bought my a99 six months too early... This seems like a much better choice for what I do, but probably not worth the $MSRP upgrade. Still, it points to a very good direction

I'll be curious how the autofocus system works. I'll also be curious if it will be good enough to release something like the LA-EA4 without the mirror.

Aside from that -- which will surely be fixed -- it's hard to point out flaws. I lose GPS (but NFC+good cell apps could probably fix that). I prefer the larger A99 battery (but I'd be glad to put it in an external grip). I'm surprised it doesn't have 4k (but I guess that comes with the resolution). I think that might be all.

tested the A7r with a 55mm sony lens at a store in vienna. they had all camera manufacturers there, fuji, sony, oly etc. one could test everything to excess. the sony has an amazing sensor. I prefer the touch screen focus of olympus. shifting a focus point with a wheel while my subject moves around seems awkward. the face/ eye detection of my epl5 works great. all in all: the A seems more like a tripod camera to me. the olympus em5 i compared nailed the focus instantly. it doesn't have amazing full frame look but got me reliable beautiful results. so your A99 might be much better in handling than the A series. more like a pro dslr. have fun with it... I keep waiting... still not sure which FF system to chose...still considering the A series and the Nikon... meanwhile I am having fun with gm1 and epl5 (half broken) and the nice pancakes.

sony has stated a while ago that they will release interesting equipment every 6 month. be happy with what you have :-) I call it "waiting with pleasure". having some equipment that works and shooting until it dies. meanwhile things have become so much better that it's really worth gett ing new stuff, like after 4, 5 years...

straylightrun: FF IBIS mirrorless? Well that's it folks, Sony is pretty much the king of mirrorless. Everybody else just pack your bags and go home. No point trying now.

oly has got it's act together as well as most of the other manufacturers. sony is leading the pack but there are plenty of alternatives, especially when one needs smaller bodies, lenses, larger lens lineup (that's why I still stick to m43 when it comes to pocketable) might get a sony, but still waiting for more lenses. maybe 3rd party. and no: i do not use adapters.

On article Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 (305 comments in total)

using the gm1 since a few month: small beautiful machine. the gm5 seems to add everyhting to make it as versatile as the gx7. the continuous shooting rate is much slower than the epl5 though, the only reason I still use it from time to time. pairs very well with the pana 14mm and the pana 20mm.
