Hugo808: What's the EQV focal length on micro 4/3s?

Or is it 70mm? Confused :-).

A lot more than that surely. It would be a crop from 6x6 inches not 35mm.

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1600 comments in total)
In reply to:

munro harrap: The D810 seems OK, BUT and it is big BUT, looking at the file sizes here the D810 file sizes are so much bigger than the D800/800E's for the same image at the same ISO- i.e. 74.3 MB @100 (D810) as against the 43.6MB @ 100 of the D800E,
that there really must be something very odd going on, as this means 4/7ths the number of shots to a card and vastly increased (by 4/7ths again) use of and consumption of Hard Drive Space, plus slower to work with files- that I as a user of Lightroom 4 and Elements 11 am unable to open with even the most recent updates- and I note with bitterness and rancour that Capture NX2 does NOT open D810 RAW files at all.
Are the original files here at compressed as against uncompressed? or 12 instead of 14 bit- what IS going on please????

Just get a Phase One

HeyItsJoel: Are there people who still shoot at 28mm? Maybe it's just me but I prefer to choose between a 24mm and 35mm in that focal range.

When I shot Nikon, I hated that the lenses would start at '18 - XX mm' which translate to '27 - XX mm' in full frame equivalent. It just wasn't wide enough for me.

Focal Lengths go out of fashion?

JoePhoto: I think these are terrible images ... (not the cameras fault) !!!

Were they shot by a 2-year old ???

The WIRE in the sunset shot ??? give me a break

What a rude and silly comment. It only serves to highlight the mentality of the poster.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1454 comments in total)
In reply to:

Teila Day: Darn right no DX lenses! I still think it's foolish for most people who ultimately want to use their photography to make regular income (enough to pay the mortgage + bills) to invest in DX lenses. I STILL maintain that the 14-24 (or 17-35) f2.8; 24-70 f2.8 and 70-200VR or IS f2.8 are the 3 working lenses that will cover nearly every job that a working photographer will be hired for and I would highly recommend budding photographers looking to earn money or a living with their Nikon/Canon to spend money on those lenses first and skip the dx lenses and 3rd party stuff unless it came with your kit.

24mm yields an effective 36mm on a crop sensor? So, step back. The reach the 17-55dx has over the 17-35 is the equiv. of 1 step forward. I chose the 17-35 because it made business sense; it offered max versatility; film and digital bodies (including my Canon w/adapter). Spending near $2k for a dx lens is ludicrous w/few exceptions.

The author is setting people up for failure.

Totally disagree with your point.

On Real-world test: Going pro with the Samsung NX1 article (369 comments in total)
In reply to:

Albert Silver: Nice video and excellent effort. The biggest problem is that a video on taking pictures of salmon in a creek is not a very compelling subject (interesting but slow paced). For one thing, in spite of the talk about how demanding it is on the AF, this was not at all appreciated by the viewer. The pictures of the fish lying about in the creek did nothing to improve this. Consider interspersing some pictures of the stills within the video, with the settings used. It is a common technique in such reviews (ex: CameraStore or DigitalRev to name a few), and works well.

Furthermore, Barney strolling in a straight line to the photographer did not seem like the sort of tracking test that would convince me it could work in a faster sports/wildlife environment. I'm not saying it cannot, but the video did nothing to clarify this.

One suggestion: speak up. You are a little too soft-spoken for a video presentation.

I could hear him perfectly.

Crushing may commence in 2040?

In reply to:

KSV: Are you kidding me? The bad: no 4K video. Are you serious? Anyone who is still in his sanity would be ever interested in 4K video (and in full HD and in 8MP jpg for this merit) from this microscopic sensor?

Why are you comnenting on this story if you don't give a damn about these devices? Seems like what you say flies in the face of many people getting anazing images from them?

Photoman: Canon as usual, full of smoke and wind. Marketing at Canon needs to find what real work is about and get a real job. Sorry Canon, Sony will leave you in their dust.

Marketing has to find something to do. If the dev team aren't producing anything what can they do? The dev team should be ashamed of themselves. It's all their fault.

Good night Canon, you are doomed. Everything about you is so 90s! Not just your camera design but even your marketing and weblayout... Meeeeh

Why stop at the 90s. Let's say 80s?

alcaher: Hey Canon, i give you a 30 days countdown! If you dont give canon users a +40 megapixel/ 14.0 DR sensor, when the clock is at 0, all of them will switch to the dark side.... the countdown starts.....NOWWWW !!

It ha to be 54mp at least. My photography is really bad right now and I need some Canon magic to make it better.

erotavlas: The only people who were underwhelmed and disappointed by this are the gear fanatics who constantly obsess about having the latest and greatest.

Works fine in IE 6 on Windows ME. Not sure what everyone is complaining about.
