About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

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.)

Just a Photographer: A neat selfmade Ice Light set you back only 30 dollars....

People better read the following PetaPixel article to save themselves about 500 dollars if they are prepared to do a little DIY.

It's a shame that there's flickering. I would have liked to use it for video. Maybe changing the shutter speed will fix it a bit.

huyzer: Don't update that firmware from Sony! That might just disable/kill this Sigma mount. Wouldn't that be something?

Yes, possibly. But I wonder if it will be enough? Sony could be really nasty if they wanted to. In any case, it'd take time for Sigma to issue a fix, if they can even thwart it. Let's hope Sony plays nice.

Rooru S: And of course, nothing for A-mount. How long will it take for Sony to stop being cowards to their legacy customers?

So I'm guessing that would mean the a7S II will also use the Sigma Art lenses natively, without the adapter, too?

huyzer: Ya... but, no... at least for me. My goodness! That price!
EDIT: And that barrel distortion. Whoa!

Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for it. It just never stood out so badly as this. But it might have been just the user's bad choice in lens for the given indoor situation. I'm guessing a 35mm was used?

On article SLR Magic announces anamorphic lenses for filmmakers (33 comments in total)

I'm interested. Hopefully the test/results are good, and pricing isn't astronomical.

huyzer: That's too bad the change in exposure is not smooth & stepless, but sudden jumps.

Ah, thank you Richard Butler. Good point.

@electrophoto
Yes, I love using the declicked lenses. I have an 85mm Rokinon T/1.5.

teddoman: Personally I don't think glamour portraits are the right way to treat this subject, but I can totally understand if that's what many photographers are used to and how they might instinctively make this artistic choice.

teddoman, haha!

teddoman, sounds like a worthy project in showing that contrast. I think you've got something there. Lookin' forward to you being featured. :)

Do you think they are hazel? I thought hazel was a mishmash of colors, with green, etc. I don't see that here.

huyzer: There is a LOT of blocking in areas where there isn't detail. The gradations aren't as detailed, but blocky, in those areas of limited color range that are just an expanse of similar colors.

1) Open both images for the brussel sprouts(?) at 100%.
2) Go to the upper right corner so that the images align easily.
3) Flip back and forth between the two.

You will notice blocking of the color; and the detail/noise, gone.
Especially easy to see in the darker leaf.

For me, I wouldn't want to lose that much information for savings in size.

@BadScience
What is pathetic is your pathetic attitude.
You're trying to show you're so smart with the difference layer in photoshop. Great, I know how to do that too. Let's open the program, copy the image, paste it, copy the second image, paste it, then set the layer to difference. Lots of steps that's not necessary compared to opening two images in separate tabs. Get the points?

My point is that I'm pixel peeping to see if it's worth the quality loss. You have to test/pixel peep to do that. And later changes, effects, heavy handed editing will suffer more from the compression.

Now, let's work on your attitude, shall we?

When you want to see if you will use something, you have to be "sad" and spend time on it. That's called "Science". But you wouldn't know I guess.
