On article Astropad Mini turns your iPhone into a graphics tablet (22 comments in total)

Astropad is a great solution if you already have the gear. It's not a Cintiq replacement though, nor do they claim it to be.

Photo Pete: If you use a microsoft surface pro 3 you already have a very accurate pressure sensitive tablet that is capable of running desktop versions of photoshop, lightroom and other image editing software.

I guess needing an ipad or iphone as well as a mac or macbook is the trendy 'apple' way of doing things though... Personally I just think Apple are behind the game and are charging a premium to be there ;-)

Nah, it's just a company giving more options for using hardware that people already have.

On article Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents (347 comments in total)

I was hoping there'd be a Zony 70-140 at some point to go with the 16-70, but that doesn't look like it'll happen.

I can understand being pedantic, but ... everyone commenting on this article UNDERSTANDS EXACTLY WHAT RICHARD MEANS. The attacks are ridiculous.

On article Fujifilm X100T successor rumored to feature new lens (334 comments in total)
In reply to:

Evil_Sheep: What I think would be awesome is instead of a new fixed focal length that someone will always be unhappy with, they just give us the camera with a detachable lens in X-mount, provided "as-is." The camera would be built around the attached lens and only the attached lens would be officially supported, but if you wanted to stick on other lenses you would have that option. It wouldn't cost anyone anything but simply offer more options and versatility.

It would make a lot of sense on Fuji's part as well, as they could drum up more lens sales that way and potentially have a wider market for would-be X100 purchasers.

There are two boxes. Fuji have stuff in both.

On a photo in the Sony Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA samples sample gallery (18 comments in total)
In reply to:

Xray Rob: I don´t understand discussing bokeh and depth of field. Anyone who is familiar with portraits knows that this focal length is unsuitable for this metier. Did anyone hear something about golden rule, about focusing and then framing for good proportions? Empty space above her head turns this pic to waste!

All I can say is: Dan, I'm jealous. She is one of the most naturally beautiful people I've ever seen.

In reply to:

meanwhile: "but it also shows that 600mm equiv isn't quite as big a leap up from the FZ1000's 400mm equiv as the numbers imply"

Err, the graph shows that because the scale is wrong.

"It seems like a fairly obvious choice."

OK. :-)

Is the ring around the shutter button a control dial, or just decoration?

Who said anything about the Foo Fighters? I said the greatest rock band of ALL TIME. Tenacious D. :-)

Obviously, but Iggy is beyond mere mortals.

Also, Dave played with the greatest rock band of ALL TIME.

You'd have to ignore a lot to think that. Nirvana for one, Them Crooked Vultures for two, QOTSA for three. Meh, each to their own. Who do you proclaim as king of rock?

Would love to see the 16mm of this one!

Stephen McDonald: I hope that isn't really a once-in-a-lifeime shot for him. I'll bet he's taken thousands of photos better than that one. It's just a conglomeration of things that don't go well together. I'd never show it to anyone, if I'd taken it. It escapes me why anyone at DPR would have picked it to go on the News column.

"It's just a conglomeration of things that don't go well together."

Err, isn't that kind of the point?
