MD50 F1.7 "Build to fit"

It is all well on a bright day, like in the example shooting the bright sky, but how is this going to work in a concert, where you usually struggle with low light? Strange suggestion, as I am absolutely sure this adaptor will need a lot of light

Rachotilko: I am BTW, why do FF DSLR's have to be so HUGE compared to APS-C ? I mean, internals are roughly the same, why all the bulk ?

I think you are right, but it woud cause a huge imbalance with most lenses, be bad for placing all the buttons, bad for justifying a high price, look like a pro and possibly sheer build quality, the ability to take knocks, be stable on a tripod and the shutter/mirror movement dampening....I guess

chrisnfolsom: This is bizarre - who takes pictures with an slr by pressing on the screen on the back of the camera?
1. The experience would be better looking through the viewfinder.
2. With low light and exposure the mirror will be down longer creating the illusion of speed - this exposure time is very slow - please test this in the sunlight.
3. We need to see if the actual focusing is better for the phase detection. Some final prints from each with a very shallow lens would let us know much more.
4. Please test this with moving objects in movie mode - moving at different speeds in different directions - pausing at different speeds to test overshoot - that would be interesting - as well as their vibration control.

Interesting though - DPR should include some movies of the camera's in actions to put some actual real world association to all those numbers that are shown - I love the numbers personally, bit it is hard to actually know what they all mean - thanks for all the hard work!

obviously they did press on the LCD to show you (visualise) the differences.....all those other tests are of course interesting but i would say about a 100 times more difficult.....what I find interesting is that they did not compare the speed of the phase on the EOS with the G5....would it stir up too much trouble here?

vlad0: i zipped two small raw video files from the phone, if anyone is interested in the video quality, that way you don't have to deal with the youtube compression.

MikeNeufeld30: My Gawd, I thought the Pentax K0-1 was ugly but no, Panasonic takes the cake.. This is absolutely the most atrocious looking camera...

It looks very slick from the front, like maybe digital cameras should, that has no film and needs to concentrate on big lens/mount/sensor? The K01 is very ugly....but both share the lack of an articulated screen, I think if you depend on it the least they can do is use it to the best of its potential, flexible.

Ariana Murphy: I have two WD hard drives (1T and 2T), plus I bought one 1T each for my two daughters. They have all failed. I can't update the software, because my computer just stops "seeing" it. I had to do a system restore to remove the new driver. The LiveDrive 2T is never live, and most of the time just continually connects and disconnects even on a good day. Useless! I can't connect directly because it doesn't work that way. I can only use the Essentials 1T as a giant flashdrive, because the backup software never works. Thumbs down!

I had a 500GB my book, what a pain this was! I would go to sleep in the middle of a backup! I blamed it me using a Mac (it was allegedly compatibel, though), but I would not recommend them at all.
