What is the difference between 10mm 180 degree fisheye and 8 mm 180 degree fisheye?
Does it take those flimsy plebeian SD cards or you replace the whole camera when the memory is full?
jaygeephoto: It's more fun when you make it a game or a contest. Here's what I mean. Be the first to spot a one in the wild or start a gallery of sightings, like birders do.I would go "hunting" for Lunar's first say in one of the malls in Dubai, Concours d'Elegance (auto auction, Pebble Beach,CA) or even the Hamptons (US). Good luck!
Please, include the idiots in the pictures. :)
Very quick review for the very specialized (read - low volume) camera, while other more mainstream cameras wait for year or so.Nikon A vs Fuji X100s vs Ricoh GR comparison review would be more interesting.
"We're told the lens isn't going to be available in the USA, at least for now."
I guess nobody was stupid enough to buy EOS M in the US? ;)
Anepo: I have been offered money to photograph as i am not a pro i decline despite taking far better photos than your average mom and dad,not at a pro level however, the reason i refuse is both that i do NOT beleive that i am good enough to take on a job.
AND in my country it is a crime to take a paid job for photographing if you do not have a license in photography (yup no university school degree in photography? Then you cant work in the industry)
However i am allowed to take photos and if someone likes them they can purchase them, they are not allowed to hire me in advance.
Eitherway so far people have asked to buy a photo from me 4 times (an average joe not a company), i have declined each time and just given them an A4 sized print, why? I do not feel my photos are worth the money and i made someones day. Though for the love of me i dont understand those people wanting to buy a photo by me, they are mediocre at best.
Iceland requires license for photography? Do you also need a degree in telecommunications to use a phone? Degree in plumbing to use a toilet? ;)
leventhan: Cons: No dedicated movie shooting button
DSLRs, especially those with fixed screens, are terrible for hand-held video anyway. Why even bother?
HubertChen: Thank you very much for the Test. I thoroughly enjoyed the Standout Features Explored Page. Bravo! I hope in the future to find this type of page on other camera tests too!
An interesting Standout Feature of K30 and K5 might have as well:I just bought the K-30, so I am not sure if all applies. But here are my experiences so far:
PDAF speed was impressive for a Pentax and fast enough for almost everything other than sports action.
CDAF. Significantly slower, than PDAF, buy usable for everything other than action. However I found myself shooting in CDAF almost exclusively as a combination of features allows for a very smooth workflow. I am using Liveview with a Viewfinder. After proper programming I can move the AF focus point very fast over the screen where I want it. AE/SEL button is set to Focus. I programmed RAW/Fx button to digital preview. When I want to take a picture, I do not use the shutter but the preview button. I can then explore the preview instantly ...
The 10 Worst College Majors
No. 2: Film, Video And Photographic Arts
So you don't work in the field you studied for. That is exactly the definition of the worst major, just wasted time and money.
JWest: At last, NEX has a comparable lens to the f2 30mm I've been using on my Samsung NX for years. And for only four times the price! ;)
Sony 35/1.8 OSS is quite comparable.
DPR, you write in the review: "In terms of macro performance, the G15 has a minimum focus distance of 1 cm, with the P7700 right behind it at 2 cm."
It is not macro performance yet, what about FLs at which the distances are reached? It is probably at wide end and as such not quite useful. It would be much more informative to specify the size of the smallest rectangle which can fill the picture. And of course sharpness at that macro setting too.
Love the comparison format. It should be done more often, better yet always (TG-2 vs WG-3? NEX-3n vs DMC-GF6? FZ200 vs X-S1? E-P5 vs NX300?).
Just a year late.
Can it read RAWs from recent models and auto apply lens-specific corrections?
MarkInSF: I guess Pentax hasn't heard that entry-level P&S cameras are money losers. Or maybe they do know it but have stores that insist they produce a full line of models or they won't carry the more profitable ones. That sounds possible. I don't think Pentax expended any effort on this whatsoever. The most labor went into designing that flower pattern as the rest was state-of-the-art in 2008.
"Even top smarts haven't such zoom and optics."
f/3.5 at best (way beyond diffraction limit of the sensor)? Surely top smartphones don't have such optics, because they have f/2! And you can use a lot of digital zoom from there before you hit that f/6.3 at the long end.
knize10: And more waste of technology and earth ressources that will soon be obsolete and finds its way in garbage bags all over the planet.
Actually, that WG-3 will outlive most cameras produced today. Efina though looks like something recycled from 5 years old garbage heap.
So, Pentax did not drop cheap P&S after all. It has been more than a year since they released something in that class, so I though they got smarter. Apparently not.
Boris F: Amazingly sharp, why no for 4/3?
PanaLeica 25/1.4 takes care about that EFL for half the price. And with fast AF.
"ised the show, held in March at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham UK, for the past 24 years. In a statement Mary Walker announced that the rights to the show would not be sold on"
I wonder why not?
EdVT: that the price is more then twice the X-E1 fuji with an equivalent lens but there is no way it will be twice as good. It may be a great competitor / alternative / 2nd choice from Germany.Lets wait until we got all the details.
x-e1's kit zoom is much better.
