On Size matters: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G7 X article (126 comments in total)
In reply to:

aris14: 12 to 16 Mp would be fine.
No reason for 20 Mp...
That stands for all 1" sensors...

What I was trying to say is that a lot of MPs do not necessarily suggest higher IQ.
The fact that manufacturers had availability of those or other sensors, theirs or third party, leave me totally indifferent. The race for MPs is aiming to people who have rather lose relationship with photography.

Brilliant approach in overall cam's design ...

Μ 60. A new effort for a new status symbol to be created.
Marketing designed with emphasis on understatement and a vintage nuance...
The central ISO dial on the back is just an artist's leftover for similar image purpose and a rather kinky functionality...
OK, the camera as camera is just fine...

The only thing printer manufacturers have to understand is that the user's print cost of all consumables, i.e paper and inks, of a photo printer has to drop down to $1,00 maximum per A3+ sheet/photo.

Ι 'd like to think they are not going to produce an anniversary replica with all the modern digital goodies...

On Hasselblad unveils pixel-shifting 200MP H5D-200c MS article (248 comments in total)
In reply to:

johnbandry: At what point would the resolution of the captured image outdo the (current technology) limits of ability of printers to print it? In other words, what is the maximum number of pixels a high-end printer (of any technology) can output onto a single sheet of paper?

That's in one go, without chopping the image into pieces to be printed separately and then reassembled, as in a billboard.

Guys, the test I performed had to do with "absolute" resolution, meaning that we found practically unseen by a "common eye" differences having to do with resolution in areas less than one square millimeter.
It was really difficult to tell judging from just looking what print was produced at 720ppi or more.
As for the bford's saying...
In terms of perceived image image quality it's quite a different story to see an image in a monitor than seeing it printed. More than that a printer is producing CMYK images (the top photo printers may have up to 10 separated inks, just to optimize the color gamut of a printed image as possible) which in the best case are representing the 15% of the colours existing in an RGB image. Btw the human eye at its best cannot see more than 10.000 different hues of color.
As for the sizes that can be printed. With nowadays tech we can produce rather easily printed images of huge dimensions. It's a matter of software and quality of surface we use to print.

I think that the subject is interesting.
I also think that the creative approach is rather common.
Technically speaking the pics are just fine.
But still every single pic doesn't tell a story by itself.
Overall a rather good work...

Few years ago my personal tests showed that a serious photographic printer needs 450-520 dpi images so to offer the best quality possible. My test incorporated two photographic quality printers (Canon & Epson) some fine pics pp by me and some really good magnifying lenses and light boxes. Images printed in Canon & Epson top papers and the top guns of 3 brands of top quality papers at that time, all glossy heavyweight (>260gsm).
Certified papers for colour proofing (FOGRA standards) are semi matte or satin, never exceeding 220 gsm.
My company in these tests were some really good friends and connoisseurs too.
We printed more than 150 samples both colour and bw.
We found interesting things having to do with these printers and the inks they used too and many other things which I think are nonsense for the 99,9% of readers here...

How rare is to notice that the place a shot taken must be few meters from a close friend's apartment...

Original effort..!

In reply to:

papa natas: I own a Panasonic Lumix FZ50.
It's a work horse. I use it mostly for studio work.
I bought it for two main reasons:
1- The internal lens focus, which stops the lens barrel from protruding when zooming. It also impedes the front of the lens barrel to turn, which is great when you have already set the filter, so you can zoom without having to reset a polarizer or a color degrading filter.
2- The filter thread in front of the lens.
Small details that make life easier when shooting outdoors.

I own an FZ30.
In most cases my A4 prints produce a nice pale skin colour on the face of some pro friends with some serious DSRs and glasses. In some cases even in studio stills...

Looks quite interesting.
8K stills are more than OK.
I would call it the Swiss Knife of photography.
For people they know what to do with a camera.

On Leica T Typ 701 real-world samples gallery updated article (104 comments in total)

Vanity always followed by style and if the whole package is accompanied from an above average quality, this package fulfills its purpose more than adequately.
That said, everything else is rather pointless.
Nobody can put sentiments in the test bed.

On Sony drops list price of Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 article (201 comments in total)
In reply to:

wallbreaker: rx10 was overpriced from the beginning...thanks panasonic

Oh yes!
Comparing to SLT-77 launched some 3 months ago...
My guess is that these type of cams have an ex factory price at least the 1/6 of the suggested retail price.

120 to 35: To DPR: You cannot find anything about the modified camera and photos when you follow the link to the source of the photos, which is a blog covering Fuji cameras.

I agree with 120 to 35

If pricing is less than 400$ which leaves imo a nice profit then it would be a serious contestant for teenager photographers and people they want to have something Dslr like with descent IQ. Nice headache free tool for in house shooting for creative or web SOHO business. Cute system.

In reply to:

Pedro Robbie: I just don't understand the comments about the "color" qualities of images produced by different manufacturers' cameras. I would assume almost any color "style" or adjustments can be produced with standard post-processing techniques, especially with Raw files. Would anyone seriously considering this camera not be post-processing?

Accurate color in photography means only one, maybe, pp step less...
Anyway color is a personal issue no matter if the available technology can reproduce the "right" color of a picture.
That is why they still exist and used so many color spaces after all...
