On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (328 comments in total)
In reply to:

Elaka Farmor: How can RX100 (with its much smaller sensor and more megapixels) have better dynamic range and color depth, and a two years old olympus with a smaller sensor (E-PM2) have much better low light ISO??http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Canon-PowerShot-G1-X-Mark-II-versus-Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX100-II-versus-Olympus-PEN-E-PM2___941_896_840

Can it be said, in defense of Canon sensors, that "Rembrandt's pictures have a limited DR"? Come on, this was "shot" into the sun, yet shows lots of shadow detail...

Thematic: Agree with Mikael Risedal - even IMG_0043 has a blurry water color look to it. Very poor for the money.

Actually, it's pretty simple: everything above and beyond the rows of shoes, that is, the upper fourth of IMG_0043, was behind a display window. Blur & haloes explained?

Frank_BR: "Interestingly, the company says both cameras will have Super 35 sensors (around 21 x 12mm), which is wider than the original Four Thirds sensor format "

The difference in the diagonal, which is what matters, is only 2.5mm.

The diagonal of the sensor matters because it's the required diameter of the image circle projected by the lens.

In reply to:

rfsIII: The 23rd rule of journalism is "Never make your readers do math." Would you please provide imperial equivalents if you insist on showing off your pretentious familiarity with metric measurements. Please try to remember that DPReview started as an English website and it is the English who formalized the Imperial system.
And, in the future, please convert prices to proper English denominations: farthings, pence, crowns, and guineas.

It was my understanding that even English joined "the rest of" the world when formalizing the SI (meter, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, etc... everything nicely decimal).
It was.

Oh yeah, must be the same nice guy I bought a "digital back in 35mm-form-factor for film SLRs" from!

In reply to:

crsantin: The ground glass focusing screen is what tipped it off, otherwise I would have believed this. I would buy this camera btw if it were real.

Not to mention that the mount lacks the two customary OM mechanical couplings (one for relaying the selected aperture to the metering circuitry, another to stop down the lens during exposure and DoF preview).

In reply to:

km25: If it is real. ISOs of 800! What is these the 21st century!

More astonishing yet, it's pretty easy to expose the ISO 400 and 800 "drop-in cartridges" in extended sensitivity mode, pushing them up to ISO 3200 or even above. (That is, if you don't mind, or perhaps you even want, blotchy grain and severely limited tonal range, of course.)
You only need to PP the files either through a specialized demosaic-er or a... hotter one!

In reply to:

DaveS100: Hi all, I am new here and just updated my EM1 to the new firmware. But when I set 0sec anti-shock, the shutter still clicks at first curtain. If I set to 1/4 sec for example, it clearly clicks before and after the exposure, so it actually doesn't seem to be working. Has anyone tried it and actually gotten it to work? If so, how?

Thanks !

Consider that perhaps that's so by design. The spurious blur has been "usually" noticed in the 1/60-1/250 range, says the write-up. In fact, the harmful vibration in the wake of the "shock" lasts for a very few milliseconds, an interval irrelevant to a 250-millisecond (1/4") exposure.

fuxicek: thats why all cameras now should have silent shutter sound and tilty flippy screen with touch screen shutter

until that day comes, there is also this very low-tech solution which has been around since film days...

In reply to:

Spectro: wow, that is thin. But with a lens attached it still not that pocketable. Maybe if they had a pancake lens.

Had you bothered to read the article before commenting you'd know they do have a 24mm-equiv f/3.5 pretty shallow pancake. (Pictured in "specifications" above.)

Mrrowe8: Great camera for a starter camera for someone moving outta point and shoot and great student starter camera ... Most of the images made by this camera will be only seen in a computer or 4x6-8x10 print size so no matter what it will serve the porpoise well .. As for the Nit pickers OMFG really , "blah blah blah touch outta focus" or "where are the landscapes ?" Stop that's not whose buying this and come to the conclusion if a gorgeous woman or man , what ever you taste is and you would still find fault .. Sweet Jesus

@Richard
Serving porpoises is illegal in most jurisdictions. Just serving us tuna fish or shark meat will do, thanks.

On CP+ 2014: Things we found that had been cut in half news story (107 comments in total)
In reply to:

BobORama: I want to know HOW they cut them in half. I've done this on a small scale for metallurgical specimen preparation. Same thing just bigger?

Now seriously: they were never cut in half, actually each half was taken from the production line to be showcased just BEFORE being joined with the other half during final assembly.
(Or do you believe there exists some cool alien tool called "water jet cutter"?)

In reply to:

Dave Oddie: At F2.8 the lenses are not fast for the focal lengths they have so why not just stick a 19mm->50mm F2.8 zoom on and save the trouble if having three different cameras?

I am sure with zoom lens optical design being so good these days such a lens would offer excellent quality and they would sell a lot more cameras.

Yes they would, but that's an APS-C size sensor, thus a 19-50 zoom would really have to be waaaay dimmer than f/2.8 to be reasonably compact on a DP2. (As a coarse reference, think the typical 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 entry-level DSLR kit lens.)

On Humans of New York: Behind the scenes with Brandon Stanton news story (64 comments in total)

It's fascinating, how many approaches there can be to street photography. Compare Stanton's M.O. to the, say, "blitzy" style of Magnum's Bruce Gilden. Exact opposites, maybe?
(Gilden as seen by Eric Kim: erickimphotography.com/blog/2013/08/24/5-lessons-bruce-gilden-has-taught-me-about-street-photography ; Gilden himself in action: youtube.com/watch?v=IRBARi09je8 )

Thank you Sir but then... why would the cheapest model among the three (S9700) be just the one that features RAW output?

In reply to:

yabokkie: so the built-in flash doesn't have a video mode?

No, unfortunately it doesn't seem to have a continuous output mode and neither have the designers given the idea a thought, I believe.
So you've found the cloud behind the silver lining... But let us despair not! I'm sure the camera also has a still mode, which can make good use of a built-in strobe (especially as a fill-in light).
