About me:

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

On Behind the Shot: Spot the Shark article (39 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dan Wagner: I think it's a pretty photo. What I find important is the photographer having a graduated nd and a .9 (3 stop) nd -- and imagining what the shot could look like if he used these, combined with a long exposure that took advantage of the location. So it's more than technical, but also applying experience. It's weird but the shot looks like a negative. Out of curiosity I opened the image in PhotoShop and inverted it -- nah -- then I tried converting it to black and white and played with the different filter choices and really liked the red and infrared filters -- looks really nice in black and white. Didn't save the result as it's not my photo -- just wanted to see what a black and white version would look like.

What would have been fun for the photographer is if he had a Fuji 690 wide film camera and shot some black and white 6x9 (120) -- that would result in a 200 mb plus 16 bit file and also provided an archive negative.

You could have saved the photo edit for your own enjoyment on your computer. Copyright issues are when you use it for profit for yourself.

Peter Evans: @DPreview

Could you possibly find an interviewer whose speech is at least in some way intelligible?

I can understand her just fine.

I'm curious if there will be a fight between Microsoft and Instagram for the Hyperlapse name?

On Niko announces service advisory for D810 'bright spots' article (378 comments in total)
In reply to:

Reality Check: Sadly typical there are so many quelled by the 'isolated affect explanation' released for nothing more than damage control.
The 'long exposures' and 'crop modes' may be what was reported, but it is by no means the only times hot/white pixels are occurring at an unacceptable level. Instead of the fanboy denial approach, how about take a look at Nikon's own marketing materials - when/if you can find them. Nikon France has conveniently removed most of the campfire images, and full rez samples. Those images were not crop modes, not 60sec exposures, they were simply higher ISO settings and are plastered by tens of thousands of hot/white pixels.

This is simply a result of the gain tweaking Nikon played with in offering the 'new' ISO64 sensitivity setting. Which is just the same range scale for Sony's 36mp sensor slid down to ISO64 and added Expeed processing. So the D800/e ISO100 became the new ISO64, and ISO12800 became the D810's ISO6400 - complete with variable gain artifacts...

==>

If anyone has downloaded those images with the hot pixels; tens of thousands from the Nikon France site, please post them and share the link. Thank you.

Too bad Mr. Slater didn't put a big, fat watermark over the images.

huyzer: Moire and color artifacts around such are worse in the D810.

@Rishi Sanyal: Ah, I did not know that, that lower resolution sensors are more susceptible to sampling artifacts. News to me. Thanks.

Ednaz, it probably depends on the distance you are from the subject, for moire to show or not (and depending on the particular tightness of the pattern/fabric). You may have gotten lucky with the D800e, and unlucky with the D700. Just a thought.

Oh my gosh, all the books you need to buy for the course! :D haha!
On the other hand, it's great this course is provided by MIT. Nice!

More information vs. disinformation would be awesome! I hate it when people share rumors and chain letter sorts of things on facebook.

I've been hearing that. If it's true, that's a shame. But even so, "Awesome technology!" :D

In reply to:

MarcusGR: A very complicated way to obtain a rather miserable result ... connecting a large, horizontal circle of cameras all around an action-scene would have provided a much more interesting result ... OK, it would have been more costly as well. But at least worth the effort !

I like that it's an arc. The transition is different. No need to duplicate bullet time exactly.

It is a shame, on the technical side of things, that it wasn't trigger simultaneously (well, at least for a few frames). But I actually might just like it better to see the flapping wings, or step of the person.
