On TocalPanorama in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (6 comments in total)

Wow, that's one of the best shots of the Milky Way I've ever seen and I go to the astrophotography exhibition at Greenwich every year.

Really moody but silent picture, gives you a sense of the vastness above us that we can forget about as we go about our daily lives. Van Gogh would know what I'm getting at here, he painted that very idea!

Top work.

Wes Syposz: why can't Nikon have a mirror-less in APS-C format, seems like everyone else does...

Because fewer people might buy their SLRs?

Shamael: Ok, I will by red dot stickers on e-bay right now and sell you the same 200$ down in price. Leica sucks.

If you include a copy of Lightroom and the Leica Jpeg settings I'll take it.

Michel Cojan: Don't quite get the 24-75mm equivalent focal lens here: with 4/3 format the multiplication factor (if I remember well) was 2x (i.e. 25mm focal lens = 50mm). Truble is, both Pana LX100 and D-Lux are using a lens specified as 10.9 to 34mm. That would make more like... 22 to 68mm (strict 4/3 sensor format). Anyone has a clue on that? (Other than that they both look quite promising).

It's because it doesn't use the whole of the sensor, the different ratios have a coverage between 12.9 and 9.5 mp. Slightly misleading perhaps but the multiplication factor is now X1.5 rather than X2.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (863 comments in total)
In reply to:

accupix: If only the LX100 had one or two of the following features- (a) a real EVF, (b) a flipping screen, (c) a ASA/DIN dedicated control wheel with an 'A' setting- I would have placed a pre-order by now. Lacking that, I'll wait to see the camera 'hands-on' and shoot IQ tests vs. my Sony RX100 before spending close to a grand (including extra battery, case, etc.)

Huh? You've already got a decent compact, why get another one? Is the Sony crap or do you have a cupboard full of 6 month old cameras?

Ian SS: What happened to the hot shoe? This is a G camera, I am disappointed.

I'm disappointed there's no pentaprism or interchangeable lenses.

In reply to:

Dodi73: Hence, on my ideal DSLR, that might be really the successor of the D700 whenever it will come out, I would like
- 18/20 MP max, there's plenty for me - I prefer high iso / dr improvements.
- pro command dial layout, body and grip ( D700 and F6 are best for me )
- focusing screen dedicated for mf lenses (or for af lenses working in mf) or other focusing trick
- 11 cross type points displaced as in D2x / F6 and all the rest where Nikon likes.
- 1/8000s and 1/250s (why not trying 1/500s) sync flash?
- gps
- I don't want AA or OLPF, let me get the image as it is and exploit my lenses accordingly. Eventual moire it's my problem, not theirs.

What I can leave out
- LCD
- video capabilities
- wi fi
- anything faster than 8 fps - no need for me going beyond it.

We'll all get right on it. Yawn....

Welcome to the same camera as last year!

At least it's got an OLPF though, and a flippy screen that might come in useful.

But all in all it looks to me like the camera the D610 should have been but without a decent RAW buffer depth. Maybe that'll come in next years D760....

In reply to:

Hugo808: Not too shabby. Certainly not so much of the "compact" look to them.

How does lightroom handle X-trans RAW these days?

Thanks for the advice and the links guys. All most interesting.

On Cold War camera: 1950s Berlin in color (part 1) article (117 comments in total)
In reply to:

Fidibus: @ GRUBERND
On the contrary, there have been massive changes in the area of Berlin´s architecture and city layout, in its political and social structure as well (think of the reunion with East Germany) as well as in its economic importance since the end of WWII and in particular since the reunion in 1989. Besides most media agree in the opinion that Berlin is one of the liveliest, most creative and open cities of the world.
Sorry to say that, but your opinion may be either based on ignorance or resentment.

On Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article (316 comments in total)

I love how Pentax are always doing something different. It was always like that, we wouldn't have SLR's without the innovations the company brought to the party. And now they even glow in the dark!

In reply to:

jkokich: It looks cool and takes good pictures.

I was in town and someone asked me to take a photo of them and they handed me an X20. I was instantly really impressed with the feel of it and the speed too.

This is just asking to be purchased by a photographer who wants a compact with decent IQ and a luxury feel.

fabio riccardi: Isn't the adjective "iconic" a bit trite and overused this days?

I wouldn't mind if people would find out what the word meant before using it, I heard a blend of coffee described as iconic the other day!

venancio: URBAN LEGEND: It isn't Paul in the picture, because Paul's dead... the car plate of the VW Beetle at the back reads 28IF, that Paul would have been 28 at the time the photo was taken, 28 IF he didn't die... so the funeral procession reads as: John is the leader of a religion, garbed in white for a funeral, Ringo is your guy from the funeral home, Paul's dead - barefoot, and out of sync in the march, and George is the grave digger...
But, boy... the music still hits hard...

Justified, it may not have been taken by a human but I doubt the chimp was using it's own camera...

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1530 comments in total)

"in our experience it's most problematic if you're taking pictures that include fabric."

LOL, not much of a handicap for me I hate photo's of people. Bit of an own goal for a medium format camera though, fashion, weddings etc.

Technology isn't a smooth progression is it?
