High ISO RAWs from the XT-1 look very clean but soft. Are they cooked?

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1079 comments in total)

D760: Increase max shutter speed, increase buffer and remove AA. That would be a great D810 sales eater.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1167 comments in total)

Nice review. I went to the cons list at the end and searched for a "mediocre dynamic range, compared even to older competitors, can lead to noisy images" comment, but no...

It used to be that men didn't use more hair styling products than ladies. But, that's another topic altogether. :D

I've seen photographers using Metz flashes. I've never seen a Metz TV in anyone's living room, though...

On Price released for Brikk's 24k gold Nikon Df article (389 comments in total)

This is a good one, really. Whether a joke or not, if there was a camera in recent years to deserve a treatment like this, it's the Df. More style than substance from the beginning...

Dohh... Come on Pentax! Why not offer options like these in higher-end cameras? I wish I had these options when I got my K-5 a few years ago. I'd pick an orange-black one.

On Inside RA001: World's first Boeing 747 'Jumbo Jet' article (127 comments in total)
In reply to:

kkchiu215: The all new 747-8 is even better, it is more energy efficient! It save 10% cost per person per seat because of the new engine and wings design. Plus it is easy to fill up passengers the A380? Earlier this year Singapore Airline close it longest direct flight from Singspore to New York? Because they have many empty seats on the A380? Boeing knowing this will happen and therefore they did not redesign the entire jumbo plan to compete with Airbus. They modify the old 747 to add 67 more seats to become 747-8. With 467 seats plane. Because of fuel efficiency. More airline is going to buy it. Especially cargo plane.

Well, some versions of the 747 could accommodate more than 500 passengers even from 1974. Google JAL 123.

On Sony shows off upcoming full-frame lenses at Photokina article (320 comments in total)
In reply to:

raztec: I'm still perplexed why people choose a FF camera and then slap a wide zoom like the 24-240 on it. It will be optically impossible for this lens to be sharp. I doubt the final image will be any sharper than an RX10, so why not just buy that instead for the price of the lens alone?

And not to mention how unbalanced it will be on a A7body.

Because sometimes ultimate sharpness is secondary to the convenience of a big zoom lens + low light capabilities of a FF sensor combo.

KonstantinosK: You forgot to mention that nowadays there are small mirrorless cameras, with large 3/4" or APS-C sensors, that are truly compact in size (albeit with interchangeable lenses), that very often can be had for as low as 300$ or maybe lower, and that can be used easily as P&S, with results unthinkable a few years ago. Anybody choosing a compact with a x30 zoom over an entry-level APS-C mirroless with a kit lens is simply misinformed.

I also think the average buyer of super zooms hasn't got a clue about the compromises in image quality involved.

Puh-lease... I still own a Lumix TZ5 (x10) which is a sweet little camera, and I've sold some images taken with it. I also used to have a FZ45 (x24), which was a dog. I know very well what a small sensor superzoom can do, and yes they still have a place in the market. But choosing one over an entry-level APS-C??? No way. I'd say that a small sensor super-zoom must be had as a second or even third camera. If you've got only $300 to spend on a camera, I think it's absolutely best to steer clear from super-zooms and choose an antry-level NEX, NX, PEN, G or whatever.

Joed700: I would like to see APS-C cameras to disappear. During the film era, we only had 35mm SLR and point-n-shoot for most people. The APS-C breed was introduced at a time when chips were still quite expensive/lack of technology for FF DSLR. Today, FF DSLR starts at around $1600 price range while APS-C are around $1000 - $1700, which is ridiculous. The existence of APS-C somehow made the FF (old 35mm equil.) into a higher class. I don't think it will cost that much to produce FF compared to APS-C. It's just an opportunity for camera manufacturers to make more money. Point-n-shoot has it's place because they are compact and good for traveling while the APS-C are about the same size as FF DSLR; APS-C also lacks shallow DOF; not a desirable option for isolating your subject....

#Joed700, the APS-C Sony a3000 can be had for $400 with lens, and that's a fabulous camera for the money. A few months ago the APS-C nex-3n, small and great for traveling, was $300 with lens. What are you talking about???
