On Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 article (101 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dimit: It's success depends on how fast the widest level of aperture deteriorates in conjunction with the increase of focal distance.
Should it be F4 by-let's say-30 mm,wouldn't be a game changer.
Should it be F2.8 up to 200 mm,then YES!

It's around F8 equivalent at 28mm

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 First Impressions Review preview (1282 comments in total)

First thing that comes to my mind is Panasonic exchanges the relative aaperture for the longer zoom range when comparing it to the Sony RX10

Kirppu: So he told people how to use graphical editing software...?
did you know that you can print fake money with colour printer.
ps: it's illegal or in the grey area of legal, but is it illegal to tell people it's possible?

I see that the biggest problem is that these kind of things come easier and easier to do for the average user and it really blinds users for thinking it could be illegal or infringement of some copyright. "but it's so easy my teenager could do it" Same problem lies in the entertainment industry with unauthorized copying of music and movies being so ridiculously easy.

Nice article from lense rentals.

In reply to:

Kirppu: Hey camera manufacturers one tip to prevent these after sell ripoffs. But the grip there in the first place. A camera should have a grip they are not smartphones.

My logic goes like this. As long as the grip is about fraction smaller than the smallest lense for the system it's logical and all good. Making tiny, huge or no grip at all doesn't make sense in my head.
Small grip doesn't make the bounding box that much smaller or travel friendly. Also I never tought some one would really want a camera without a grip...

I like the way light outlines the bears silhuet and overall mood of the photo.

In reply to:

Leandros S: I'm going to boycoot this one as my personal favourites aren't here, and it feels a bit stupid being only allowed to vote for what the DPR team have deigned permissible. Condescending, too.

Pre selected photos ok. I would have liked to have a bit more photos to compete each other. But oh well...

Just paint it black and call it Polaroid BS (Black Series) :P

On Will consumer DSLRs be 'dead in 5 years?' post (132 comments in total)
In reply to:

bleeboo: I'm afraid DSLR's, if not extinct, will be far fewer in the future.

Look at what has happened with mp3's as opposed to the full sonic quality of a CD.

People have actually accepted muddy and distorted sounding music as "acceptable" for the sake of transportability.

Just as have many accepted blurred and washed out phone snapshots as passable.

For me, I'll always play the music I love most with as much sonic integrity as I can, meaning top level equipment to do so.

The same goes for photography. I'll always have a DSLR.

I'm afraid, however, I'm going the way of the dinosaur.

"FLAC and SACD are a pointless waste of space"
:P
Until some better than mp3 encoding invades the market and you have buy your mucis again because you don't have any lossless format in your backup to re-encode them to new format. Money well spent mate.
Storage prices are "so" high now days...

In reply to:

BeyondPluto: What a strange creature. And at about the same price, I can't imagine choosing this over the newly released Panasonic GM1 with compact kit zoom.

Mixed bag of toughts here.
Nice compact cam and all in one solution with small sensor. Doesn't stop you from taking good photos. But the price, totally personal point of a view is that II would not buy this camera for the realease price.

In reply to:

Tomee21: But why 15mm? Why not 12? Or at least 14? Those would make more sense to me than a 30mm equivalent.

My bet is that marketing department had decided it would not be cost effective enough.

Stylish camera and sign that manufacturers should start to upgrade their bridge camera sensor sizes or that's how I see the situation.

On Can computer corrections make simple lenses look good? article (162 comments in total)

So it can magically guess the texture patterns that objects have even if it originally was just a blur... I would like to see that happen. I bet it would have some funny end results. :)

And didn't Adobe all ready do this deblurring thingy?

Customer ordered the statues and paid the sculptor. So in my opinion after that sculptor should not get anything.

Monument photographer got paid for the photo so he also has his share of the money.

So rest of this idiocracy circus is just punch of greedy people arguing about money that doesn't belong to them.
