On Ricoh expands Q series with Pentax Q-S1 article (362 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: I wish to own this cutie. Especially for its tiny sensor. YES YOU RED IT RIGHT!

Sensor is the best for razor sharp C mount lenses. Surely its more like portrait-Tele for its crop factor. (12mm C lens would be 56mm for this one) and sharp as 0.75-1.3 !!!

Sharing can be managed by a eye-fi card somehow, but fixed rubbish resolution screen is no brainer.

And it also has a great built in flash even many microfourthirds and old NEX cameras does not!

Desr DeadCamFan, we are talking about a "photo enthusiasts oriented camera" here. Sure you can make money from the images by ANY CAMERA YOU HAVE, but it makes YOU a pro. NOT YOUR CAM.

What I mean is; if you have relatively small sensor, more C mount lens will fit to your photography. Because of the C lenses general diameter! While medium format lenses are thick as chimney, full frame lenses are more like mid size water pipe line. Comparing to them C lenses are thin as a pencil. Now try to fit a pencil front of a huge full frame sensor ! Yes's !!! All you see is a tiny hole !

I am mentioning the from factor & sensor size combo. Nothing else. But you are a FAN(ATICT) so... I am done with it. Bye !

As an E-PM1 owner, I wished to used those lenses. But they show strong vignetting, especially the wide ones.

But smaller crops are excellent. Some 1" sensors also shows vignetting but better than M4/3. Pentax Q with 1/1.7" is just perfect !

If anyone have been microfourthird enthusiasts for about 3 years, probably has at least two different lens and at least one of them fast as F 1.8. So you prepared for any new technical improvements since 2009 (since E-P was released)

Man its E mouth but full frame. It vignets like a key hole. Sure E mouth very adaptable to vintage lenses, which belong to previous century.

Interesting comparison, I kinda think that GH-4 will be the winner in the end.

On Olympus takes Pen E-PL6 beyond Asia article (76 comments in total)

Sad not to see; proper tinelapse (as in OMD EM-10), no built in wifi, same low resolution rear screen...

I seriously wondering, what are the serious benefit over E-PL5 !

I'll keep waiting for E-P5 discounts in Xmas or brand new PEN model with EM10 specs.

On Canon and Microsoft sign patent agreement post (73 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: A full frame sensored, Canon EF mouthed Nokia ? Or 5D mark V, that allows phone calls to friends !!!

Both sounds exciting :D

Well the thing is, canon does not have too much to offer Nokia really.

Remeber, Nokia has a deal with CarlZeiss thus even Sony can't release a smartphone which has a Zeiss lens on it.

And after all canon is not known by their 3rd party accessories. I really wonder what they can offer for Nokia. My first comment was a joke. (for whom, that did not get it :)

To choode any of these camera is one of the hardest decisions of all time!

Hence, I leave both behind and keep sailing in micro43 ocean :)

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: What I like about 1" ILC cam is encouraging to use TV lenses (C-mouth) on it, without vignetting (I hope!)

but what I don't understand is clearly, why there are less mpx than Sony 's ? I believe there will be wider lenses are on the way. However I am in M43 world, this is a nice stuff.

And what I surprised is, there were error two times, hence my comments are here 3 of them in a row :)

Ben O Connor: ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCERS OUT THERE (metabones, sigma, etc.) PLEASE MAKE A BELLOWS HOOD FOR A M43 SYSTEM ALSO LOOKS COOL! AS THIS ONE HERE... PLEASE.

I hope I screamed loud enough that they'd all heard me !

Well, it is at the same time! You can´t nail such macros by just camera. But those shade, greater the distances (between lens & sensor) closer the image.

On Kodak Pixpro S-1 First Impressions Review preview (183 comments in total)

Kodak should know that, buyers of M43 also take care of the outlook if their camera. This Kodak model looks like an Olympus E-P1 from the first decade of 21st century!

I liked the fun effects that they introduced, and 400mm scope lens sounds well.
