  • "No, not at all. When I use cable release I don't need to stand right behind the camera."

    You do not have to stand behind the camera - moving a finger near the EVF should suffice. Unless of course...

  • "World's #1 camera manufacturer releases innovative hybrid stills / video camera. World's #1 digital camera review website covers it."

    So you do admit that you know that you are #1? Finally.


  • "It’s important to remember that part of the story of this camera is to reduce the size, weight, and cost."

    I LOLed.

  • Commented on Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview

    The D7200 doesn't have articulated LCD. All other differences are pretty negligible to me.

    I still can't believe that a camera manufacturer would still release today an upper level body without...

    "By any means "iso invariance" is great to have but abusing of it makes for worse pictures [...]"

    We can measurebate the numbers all day long, but as long as it doesn't screw up the composition...

    ... at low ISO.

  • Created discussions Startup called "Light"
    Ambiguous name - ambitious goal. Promise of a zoom, DoF control and higher resolution - all in a small (flat) package. ...

    > ISO Invariance

    Oh my. Since I'm not much interested in the stuff, I have missed half the page #10. The most interesting half.

    And - oh my freaking god - this is finally happening!

    Finally, ISO...

    "The open question has been hanging around for some time: Why hasn't anyone tried the BSI approach on APS-C?"

    BSI manufacturing process is complex and doesn't scale well to the larger sensor.


  • Replied in Foveon FTW
    I personally do not need more resolution. I'd rather prefer if manufacturers have worked more on something like 12MP Foveon-like sensor usable at ISO 3200, fast AF and decent burst rate. 20MP? ...
  • That's why I called this "news from the Canon island."

    The article is clearly a product of the so-called "monoculture" (in non-agricultural sense). People who used only Canon for long time simply...

  • > Canon is here to stay

    But many people have already moved on.

  • "Sorry, but no. The TZ70 [...]"

    DPR definitely needs some intelligence database/system.

    Despite the contraction of camera market, they seem to forget things easily nowadays.

    They already have...

    "Sony A77M2 for $1548 on amazon"

    Good point. (Though the kit is not perfectly comparable, since the Sony's 2.8/16-50 isn't particularly stellar performer. And we comparing street price of 1yo kit...

    "It should be compared to other $3000 cameras regardless of sensor size."

    How many other cameras are sold in kit with a f/2.0-2.8 or constant f/2.8 zoom?

    "Also I don't see how any camera that has...

  • And it even provides some grip. But it is still hard to resist the cuteness of the GM series. What is surprising to me, is that no other manufacturer tries to repeat the trick of the GX7: instead ...
  • Barney, I think you are missing the point. By a mile.

    You have just presented a hybrid cam. And went on to tell everybody who was shooting stills/video for many years now (very often with the one...

  • IMO, the MP race is simply misguided. Few need the higher resolution - while most would rather take better pixels. Yet manufacturers, and DPR supports them, keep throwing at us more crappy pixels,...

  • > There's just more to the story, as always :)

    Well, I have my own agenda too :) Though I am not as capable articulating it.

    The problem as I see it is that higher resolution only addresses...
