On A second glance: two takes on the Leica X article (378 comments in total)
In reply to:

vroger1: The reviews mirror what other sites have stated. It never ceases to amaze me that a company such as Leica could turn out a product which is so esoteric. I don't believe I have ever seen one in use. This problem is not strictly Leica's. Canon has for years striven to produce digicams with wide appeal but always leave something out- be it a viewfinder (Optical or EVF) or a fast lens. The only company in solely my opinion, which has time and again succeeded in bringing out digicams with the widest possible appeal is Panasonic.

And Fuji, too.

To David Wentworth:
"a 35 mm equivalent f/1.7. The camera would not allow me shoot at f/1.7 when within a certain distance to a subject. Instead, the aperture would automatically "correct" to f/2.2 or f/2.8, even when in full manual mode."

I suspect that it is the same reason why did East Germany Jena Zeiss do the same thing with some of their lenses (2.8/35mm Flectogon and 3.5/135mm Sonnar at least). And the reason is simple: as you focus closer and closer, your lens moves further from film/sensor surface becoming "a longer focal length, while diameter of the hole ("aperture") that passes light to the sensor remains same. The ammount of light that reaches sensor is reduced. That is also why 2.8 macro lens when set to 1:1, becomes actually f5.6 (in other words, you`ll need for 2EV longer exposure).

On Opinion: Do we really need the Fuji X30? article (310 comments in total)
In reply to:

2eyesee: The adage "if you're explaining, your losing" comes to mind. The need for this article in itself shows that Fuji have missed the mark.

It's been 20 months since the X20 was announced, and no improvement in the core areas of sensor and lens. Meanwhile, Sony have 3 different RX100 models with 1" sensors at various pricepoints to choose from. Fuji have has 2 years to respond - a fail as far as I'm concerned.

Well, EVF is what is missing in many competitor models, and lot of other things that come with this new Fuji is why I am finally going to buy this (not so) little thing. I am not replacing old "compact" camera. I was without all around camera for a while, and with this body it is going to end. I didn`t need a revolutionary new camera, just already existing things but in different cameras from different manufacturers to be combined in one. And that is what X-30 brings to me - all in one.

On MACROCHIP in the Aligning challenge (2 comments in total)

It is more than physical resemblance to an electronic chip. It functions that way, too. Just think of people as electrons, and their motion as en electric flow...
Congratulations.

On Olympus Stylus SH-1 real-world samples gallery article (61 comments in total)

"and offers a substantial 28-300mm equivalent zoom."
Actually, it is 25-600mm. IMHO, it is too much for a camera without EVF, no matter how good IS is....

In reply to:

nemark: As long as these cameras don`t have manual and semiautomatic (Av/Tv) controls, I don`t need them.

I thought "A" was for Auto, not фор "Aperture priority"...

In reply to:

jtr27: Is this lens in addition to, or instead of, the 10mm F2.8 which was announced some time ago? To my knowledge that lens can still not actually be found, and nobody has seen one, much less tested or reviewed it.

We do love announcements Samyang, but we love actual availability of lenses even more! =)

"Less ambitious"? F2 at UWA lens is not "less ambitious"

In reply to:

nemark: Great, but it is just one more Samyang announcement. We already have two unrealized Samyang announcements of one lens: 2.8/10mm. It was firs announced at the las Photokina, and again at the end of 2013. With both releasing dates way behind us.

Actually I did, and it is still "New Item, Available for pre-order". Availability was promised for January, and we are approaching the end of the March, now.

What is BW in the title? Obviously not "black and white", as shots must be "Full colours only..."

nemark: I still don`t understand why Canon uses 2496 x 3120 as a 5:4 maximum ratio image size, instead of 3900 x 3120 px, what uses most af a sensor?
They do it always when their camera has 5:4 as option of image size!
Unbelievable!

Still I don`t understand. This was the practice for all previous compact cameras. I can shoot full resolution of the sensor (3:4=4160x3120px for MkII) and later crop it to 3900x3120px in some editing software, but camera can`t do it for me as it does for other aspect ratios? I don`t understand it!

Removing OVF instead of implementation of an quality EVF?
Definitely not my camera! No matter of other qualities.
