is that shoulder really dislocated?
bokane: Yes, useful, but we're still waiting for the big secret of the series - how do you get them to stay still while you focus stack?
liquid nitrogen? :)
sir_bazz: So how is the data for the new IQ graphs compiled?
Looking at the 5D MkIII RAW noise, (noise reduction set to zero), it appears that the 5D MkIII, MkII and D800 actually produce more noise at all ISO's than the the APS-C sensor used in the Pentax K-5.
Am I reading the graph wrong or is the data wrong?http://g3.img-dpreview.com/C530CBEACF7C45B7AA198AF6D56F8C85.jpg
check out the minimal read noise for these sensors, you are right about the K5 http://www.sensorgen.info/
stanic042: someone probably from this company has attacked me via private message for criticism of their grammar used in this announcement..well if this is the way they intend to do business, so be it and I wish them many customers happy with their services :D
apparently you missed the word probablywhat made me write that was fact that the message was written in their native language and apart from swearing they said "don`t you do this to my business"

iudex: It is pleasing to read about a producer from my country on DPR. However the site needs to be finished in order to look more professional.P.S. I think the correct adjective is "slovak", not "slovakian".
adjective is slovak as well, slovakian is an incorrect, "dialect" form made up by people who don`t know the grammar because similar form is used e. g. "canadian", but you don`t call the country Canadia slovak is the language of slovaks
Rupert Bottomsworth: I wish they would get a native english speaker to proofread their website.
even the first word is in incorrect form "Slovakian", it should be "Slovak"...
cinefeel: I am surprised.
Turns out that with sensible processing and upscaling to 45MP the SD1 almost borders on 645D territory:
apart from DOF, the resolution is truly amazing, details like artifacts from screen-print are visible, which is comparable to the 645Dvery nice sensor Sigma!
robogobo: I said it from the beginning: this is at best a solution in search of a problem, and at worst a complex gimmick. No matter what research is pointed my way, I still don't see what's so revolutionary about the tech. I've been told I need a phd to understand it. Good luck selling that. In the end it still looks like a bunch of simultaneous exposures at different focus points. Big deal. I think the best they can hope for is that somebody buys their IP and they can break even on the clearance sale.
They compare it to Polaroid. I'm afraid not. Polaroid was a high quality mainstay in the beginning. Only later did they cheapen the process and release junky cameras. Lytro is starting off with junk, and they don't even have a niche to fill. Maybe they can compare to Holgas or Dianas.
I don`t think you need phd to uderstand this http://www.lytro.com/renng-thesis.pdf
DA limited zoom? interesting :)
me like :)
Sosua: Can't think of too many lenses that would make sense (in keeping with the size), perhaps the 15-85 as a walk around.
given the price, it may only appeal to those wanting to use higher end lenses on their NEX for some reason - maybe a TSE on a NEX 7 as Chez says.
One interesting thing about the adapter is though... it seems quite thin for an SLR adapter?
What is the EF flange distance?
fmian: Here's how I see it on the 1DX vs D4 debate.
Sensor: Totally remains to be seen as both cameras haven't come out yet. I don't think a 2MP difference means anything at this stage.
Auto Focus: D4 has 51 points, 1DX has 61 points. 1DX seems to AF up to f/5.6 lenses, while D4 does F/8. What would someone with a camera like this be doing with a lens that can't open to F/5.6?
Speed: 1DX @ 12fps and D4 @ 10fps. Don't know about buffer sizes but D4 may have the advantage with the new memory card type whatever it's called.
Card Slot: People who want 2 CF slots (many) will want the 1DX, and people who want to buy into a new expensive card type when there is little support will want the D4.
Hardware ISO: 1DX ranges from 100-51,200, while D4 ranges from 100-12,800. Final verdict remains to be seen.
Video: Pretty much the same for both, but the D4 has some useful tele-crop modes. Perhaps this can be added to the 1DX before release?1DX has the nifty feature of overcoming the 4gb limit.
"What would someone with a camera like this be doing with a lens that can't open to F/5.6?"how bout 600/4 plus 2x TC?
that is some thin and busy atmosphere
congrats Ron, good use of MFD of the DA 14/2,8
Vlad S: What are the yellow stripes across the face of the woman in the bank note? They appear in both JPEG and RAW images.
KodiakCruiser: A very comprehensive article indeed. Extensive and just about correct all around, but I do absolutely recommend not to set your lens to infinity without rigorous testing to see if it turns out sharp. With a big aperture, as you definitely need when shooting northern lights, the margin is very narrow. You will most likely get pictures which are slightly out of focus. And you won't see that until you get back home and view them on a bigger screen. Annoying...
I've been shooting auroras in Tromsoe for many years as this is my home. Yes, lucky me:). And I can also say that you only have to drive for about 20 minutes to be in complete darkness - without any light pollution of any kind. Open water all around with great reflections as the ocean and the fjords never freeze up. This region is excellent for northern lights shooting. Let me know if any of you are planning a trip to Tromsoe.
Shots can be viewed at my website www.kodiak.no. Just to get a taste of it
Anyway - great article!!
I am planning to visit Tromso next winter, hopefully the weather is going to be ok :)
