JunzInc: Good read that the Sony 5 Axis IBIS performs as good as the Olympus one

JunzInc, stop making things up!
That Conclusion page of the A7II Review doesn't even have the word Olympus on it!

What were you smoking?
Olympus shots at 1/13s at 200mm equivalent is 90% usable. Sony shots at 1/13s at 200mm equivalent is only 10% usable.

On SanDisk unveils 512GB Extreme Pro card article (162 comments in total)

I just bought a 64GB SanDisk Extreme Pro card from B&H for $99. It is around $1.6/GB. This new 512GB card has the same price per GB. A fairly reasonable introductory price IMHO.

By the way, I tried cards of various sizes from different manufacturers and none has failed. And I won't kill myself if this new card fails on me. Have fun and enjoy life!

I use a waist bag most of the time. I keep the lens hood on, lens cap off, bag unzipped all the time. When I finish shooting a set, I put it back in the bag without turning it off. Quick, safe, and comfortable.

The only times I use a sling strap are when I want to look cool, or with a long lens. There was a time when I used a certain sling strap and walked along a highway. Some very tiny pebbles or whatever got kicked by me or by a car scratched the lens coating. Lesson learned!

I use a Joby sling strap now. I can adjust its length in seconds due to the SpeedCinch. Pretty nice.

Like to buy a Passport Sling III but it is not on sale any where yet. Can't even find it in their own website!

Bulky, slow to deploy, and HOT in the summer. I won't buy one no matter how inexpensive it is.

OK, the Olympus website, OK!

Can I start a web page from bottom up? I didn't know that! :)
They were not there! You posted 12 minutes later than I did.

This 9mm is a must buy for me! The 25mm looks good too!

In reply to:

Richard Franiec: "Gear in this story" tabulation results (own it, want it, had it) clearly shows the bias in voting. I think that this poll result cannot be taken seriously by someone looking for honest guidance to pick the best of the best, simply because the majority of respondents have no means to test all the contenders.

Since DPR have access to all the products listed, I would like the staff to share their own opinion on each product expressing their collective feelings and clearly saying why. This could be more interesting and revealing than going back and forth with "fanbois" rants.

"I would still like to know what is the most significant product related to photography in 2013 in opinion of people who have basically unlimited access to every piece of new gear and why. Is this too much to ask?"
That was not your original question.

In reply to:

topstuff: Interesting in that it tells us that IQ is not the top priority for people.

It also reveals the truth that people generally look at photography through an iPad or tablet and don't print large anymore.

It also reveals that a large percentage of shooters only really take pictures in undemanding situations, with good light and conditions.

Why else would a MFT camera win? ;)

Do we buy sports cars based on speed alone? Most people don't.

ragmanjin: This poll has already been answered by the previous polls, so I can't help but question the motive behind it — especially since, as far as I'm aware, this is the first year one of the leading cameras (let alone the all-out winner) hasn't already received its full review.
Pentax K-3....................2529 votes (31.4% of the 8054 votes in its poll)
Fuji X100s.....................2423 votes
Olympus OM-D E-M1......2238 votes
Sony RX100...................1555 votes
Sigma 1.8/18-35............1331 votes
I hate to keep kicking a dead horse but is this an attempt to avert attention while you finish up with the K-3?
I mean no disrespect, DPR, I just feel the question needs to be put out there. If you guys were just waiting for the firmware update or the release of the Flucard for wireless tethering, that's totally fine. It would be nice if you would let us know that sort of thing is all I'm saying.

Some or even many of us gave our votes to BOTH K-3 and E-M1 since they were in different categories. This is a different poll since we can only choose one of them.

utomo99: How to take this photos ? Any tips and tricks. how to reduce the glass effect ?

- Turn off all the lights in the room and block all those coming from outside the room.
- Block direct light from the lighting elements (tubes, bulbs, LEDs, whatever) of your aquarium from entering your eyes and the lens.
- Shoot at an angle to the glass. Since fish scales grow at an angle to the fish body, try shooting at an angle both from the head side and from the tail side to see the difference.
- It would be best if your camera has an articulating screen.
- And use manual focusing. Fine tune the distance by moving your hand/arm in and out.
- If failed, try again immediately. Not try again some other nights. If the height is right, sit on a chair and try taking photos continuously for 1-2 hours. You will be an expert after that.
- No need to use an polarizer.
- Good luck!

Bettas are slow moving and taking their photos is quite easy. Try guppies!
