On article Small but mighty: hands on with the Panasonic GX85/GX80 (315 comments in total)
In reply to:

mosc: I'm just of the opinion that there's no market beyond cell phones and fixed lens compacts (with really fast glass) for cameras of this size/price. I thought the GX8 was a more reasonable "enthusiast" product to pair with lenses but this kit-lens-focused GX85 seems doomed. The LX100 is under $600 and has a MUCH faster lens.

Personally I would grap the E-M5 II for ~660€ in europe and would not miss the 4K video. But different person, different needs.

(is this considered as advert?)

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: They did not mention the size of sensor... it is probably smaller than my cellphone, in A.D. 2016.

Ridiculous!

720mm equivalent divided by 123mm focal length seems to give crop factor of 5.854. So long edge length of the sensor would be around 5.978mm
If I'm not totally wrong...

On article Enthusiast compact camera roundup (185 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jimmy2thou: This is for compact cameras? I have the Fuji X100s and it slips right into my....... camera bag, because it is not a compact camera! It's a bloody good camera, but calling it compact is like calling a toilet roll a tampon.

I hope it is not just me. Maybe, you're all now used to hipster jeans that hang below your ass and pockets big enough for a keg of beer?

So, back to COMPACT cameras. Ricoh GR, Nikon Coolpix A, Sony RX, Canon G7... and Sigma DPM/Q (Although slightly bigger and less user friendly). Bigger sensors that fit in 'normal pockets'.

I think your top 4 cameras are 'Enthusiast small camera bag cameras' and marketed like that, all a good choice.

Same thing crossed my mind while reading this. :)
Majority of the article cameras ain't that compact.

My opinion:
LX100 for those you don't never want to bother changing the lense. Buy a camera get good photos. Forget the next 3-4 years that there's alertanive cameras.

GX7 and you have to start thinking which lenses to buy for your needs. Also what kind of camera bag you'll need and so on...

See the difference here :)

CNY_AP: Seems like they are simply copying the human eye which is a good idea.

The Main thing is that the eyes sharp area is kind of small. Also eyes do these small movements(Saccade) all the time. Both of these things are kind of bad if your goal is to do static sharp focus for large, flat sensor.

I don't think that battery size (2600mAh) is enough for photographic device that also has android running at the same time. Going to drain it self empty very quickly while shooting and uploading your photos to the social media as the selfie snapshotters tend to do.

Kirppu: I personally don't get this concept. Buy a lens mount, that work by it self no matter that the ergonomics seem to suck. Use your lens mount with your smart phone that acts as you camera rear screen. Still you're far from ergonomic nirvana.
Plus, you still have to buy lenses for your system.

Heck why not just buy the E-mount camera body?
This is one of those things I just don't get it.

Just give your camera to a chimp and retrieve it after couple of day. This way you don't have to bother taking funky photos and videos by your self :)

I'm just wondering how will that complex design (all five groups can move, either together or independently) that has made this lens possible will stand the test of time. Will it last to the end of the warranty period or will it really be enough durable to last more than a year?

So basicly they are making auto generated 3D model of the footage, then process it further and slap original video as a some kind of texture to the 3d model and finally render the end result.... Sound really time consuming. Instead of stabilazing the image they should further enchange the 3D generator so the footage could be explored in real 3D afterwards :) And not just one camera path.

In reply to:

bford: How can people online get access to your full resolution image if you don't post it online? Anyone with an obviously desirable image that posts the full resolution version online is a fool.

I don't see point uploading over ~1,2MP photos (with serious jpg compression) onlline if you want to keep people misusing your work. Just enough resolution to appreciate the photo in web browser. Of course there won't be much of a details left but seriously limiting the possibilities to use the photo to any big size printing without serious prosessing.

My advice is, don't trust so easily what webservices tell you, like "we'll keep your data save don't worry" -> there are punch of people working in their datacenters also. :) If you uploaded the full resolution and someone stole it, bad luck but doesnät surprice me.

On article Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 (102 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

In reply to:

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.

How about all the flexes my logic say they should be ripped nastly by he cutting edge.

On article Sony a7R teardown! Roger Cicala gets his hands dirty (135 comments in total)

Nice article from lense rentals.

Link | Posted on Jan 31, 2014 at 14:42 UTC as 21st comment
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...
