Kwick1: Pretty sure that "Up to 1.1M panorama" is a myth, considering what this proper reviewer just printed: http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/reviews/printer/epson-sc_p800_review.html

You can always use a cheap printing program called QImage (about USD$70), as I use it to print up to 15,000mm or 590.5 inches...not that I ever had to print that big...but I can!

summicron: looks great. what do i do with my current 3880 and inventory of spare ink cartridges??

@summicron The 3880 is a great printer and as long as your using it every week, it will produce brilliant prints. Only worth the upgrade if it was a 11 ink printer (extra Green & Ornage like the x900 series printers), not a 9 ink printer.

BartyLobethal: "...light black and light light black...". Would those be grey?

Must be lost in translation...Japanese word for light grey maybe? It always made me laugh.

Photoman: Why do the keep pushing the the Nikon 1 series...its a failure. The Oly/Pan/Sony mirrorless are far better cameras at a far better price. Maybe if they released a Df styled mirrorless or a slimmer downed Df FX body, people might return to Nikon...

I have tried to love the V! & V2, but their menu and functionality just makes me hate them. I'm a Nikon man, but there vision in the 1 series is misplaced. I feel it is the Edsel of cameras (or maybe the one Homer made!). There is rumors of a Df styled mirrorless (I hope it's not a 1 series) and maybe a smaller Df styled body with a F mount...One can only hope...

On Datacolor offers Spyder5 with redesigned calibrator article (108 comments in total)
In reply to:

Photoman: Xrite products are better, as their software is all-in-one and easier to use than the Spyder software. I have used both for over 17 years and Spyder's software is crap! It is not logical or step-by-step. Eizo do use the Spyder 3 & 4 (They call it the EX-1 & EX-2) for their premium Flexscan & Coloredge monitors, but with their software. I asked a Eizo Tech in Japan what is the differance between the Spyder 3 & 4 and he said (not joking)...the color... Yes nice upgrade Colorvision.

The software still needs to be completely re-written. I use a Spyder 3/Eizo EX-1 on my Eizo monitor, so I'm not knocking the hardware. It's just the software needs to be made easier, like Xrite i1 Profiler. The Eizo tech does also looks after Eizo's medical grade monitors for medical examination, so the guy knows his stuff.

On Sony FE 28mm F2 samples gallery posted article (96 comments in total)

I think I will stick to my Minolta 28/2.8. A lot of distortion in this lens.

On Nikon 1 J5: What you need to know article (492 comments in total)
In reply to:

Photoman: Great, another Nikon 1 failure. It will be half price in 3-6 months time at Amazon/B&H.

I use Nikon DSLR's and love them, but have tried a V1 & V2 and I just can't love them. There just not a nice camera system to use and overpriced. Olympus & Sony offer better value and prefer to use their systems. Maybe when the DF mirrorless comes out, that might change.

Photoman: All the corrupt Olympus exec's should commit Seppuku, but to do that, you must have honour...there is no honour left in Japanese business.

Well Japanese business learnt American business practices when they were occupied, you could argue maybe. It is funny it was a outsider that brought the Olympus scandal to light.

Prairie Pal: How hard can it be to design an endoscope? It's basically a GoPro attached to a rubber hose.

@Prairie Pal It takes a lot of years of looking and sticking things up butts to get it right ;)

@Prariie Pal I don't think you would want a GoPro jammed in where the sun doesn't shine...ouch!

James Booba: this interview reminds me of statements from a Nokia CEO around 2007.

Watch this space then. I don't think APC-S. Try 1", since the 1 series seems here to stay and maybe, just maybe a FF retro style ;)

It won't be long before Nikon release a mirrorless body with retro styling or mirrorless styled body...maybe both!
