On Lytro software update introduces Focus Spread feature article (91 comments in total)

This technology is promising, but not mature yet. Just a matter of time. Look it at this way: the first digital cameras were also a lot behind film cameras.

On Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents article (328 comments in total)
In reply to:

Le Frog: "Its depth-of-field and light capture costs (it's most directly comparable to a Full Frame 70-200mm F5.6)"

No, no, no, dear DPR, in a telephoto, deep DoF is never ever a cost, it is always a benefit! Who wants (and why would he want) shallow DoF@200mm? And whenever you can use the 35-100 wide open, while, with an APS or FF camera, you would have had to stop down the lens, to get sufficient DoF, there is no light capture cost either.

Please, please, please, do not encourage the trolling of the shallow DoF brigade. Pretty please with a cherry on top and plenty of whipped cream and chocolate fudge?

Well, one very good reason to buy the f/2.8 lens: you can use higher (faster) shutter speeds in less than optimal light conditions. Important for action/sports photography and birding.

In reply to:

EXX: Wow, $1800 body only. The Sony A77-MkII with the 18-50mm F2.8 lens is cheaper than that. Looks a lot more attractive to me.

If you have already heavily invested in Canon lenses, then it is of course nonsense to switch to anything else. For new buyers however, this is a completely different matter.

On Canon unveils PowerShot G7 X with 1"-type sensor article (51 comments in total)

Finally some competition for Sony in this market segment. I suspect Sony will now drop their price on the RX100 models. Good for us consumers.

On The Kit Lens challenge (11 comments in total)

Basic PP, so colour photographs only? What about panorama, since more and more cameras have a nice and easy to use (also for mom) built-in panorama function.

On onOne Software's Perfect Effects 8 available for free article (117 comments in total)

For all the folks still using 32 bit Windows 7 or 8.x

You can replace the 32 bit version by a 64 bit version with your current license key. AFAIK, the key is not related to 32 or 64 bit version, only to the fact that it is home/professional/ultimate/whatever edition. So you can legally download a 64 bit version of your current 32 bit Windows version and replace it.

Beware that you must replace the current installation, not put a 64 bit next to the 32 bit version.

On Sony SLT-A77 II First Impressions Review preview (671 comments in total)
In reply to:

ArturK: I just don't get it. If it has an EVF then why the translucent mirror? Can't the image from the sensor go directly into the EVF?

The image from the sensor does go to the EVF directly. The translucent mirror is just a beam splitter that splits off 30% of the incoming light to the AF module. The remainder goes to the sensor.

The mirror lens will be available in Sony Alpha mount, but which one? A-mount or E-mount?

Photomonkey: Did I miss the complaints about the lack of a FF sensor?

LOL. You have a point though: where is the Sony RX-1?

On Stairs #2 challenge (1 comment in total)

I have a suggestion: put in a rule that the picture may not have been used in a previous challenge. Otherwise I think we will see a lot af the shots used in previous stairs challenges ;-)

On WILD BIRDS taken with SUPERZOOM Fixed Lens Cameras challenge (12 comments in total)

Do older generations bridge cameras like the Konica Minolta A1/A2 or the Canon Powershot Pro1 fit your definition of a superzoom?
