King Penguin: Quality, quality, quality........mmmm, I wonder if any of these photographic winners have posted a dis on DPR about a camera they didn't use because it's shutter speed only went to 4000th of a sec..........

@b craw,
I'm not sure it's the same photo we're talking about.

Nevertheless, if it's indeed tjhe same, would you be so kind as to point out some demonstration of "unsophisticated method" or some "formal decision in favor of restricted use of DR" in photo 11, "Sichuan Opera, The Leading Actress. Photo by Haixing Liu (China)" ?

I believe that not every accomplished photographer is gear-oblivious. Case in point, it looks like the author of "Joie de Vivre" (the horse) likes fast shutters; the tips of the hairs of the mane and the tail look frozen in air.
And, on other technicalities, one staple discussion here (more often than not scoffed at as pointless) is about sensor DR, especially across brands. I wonder, though, if the author of Leading Actress/photo 11 would settle for a so-so sensor? (No crushed shadows, nothing miserably blown next to the light bulb... yet probably shot at a high ISO.)
So yes, there is a possibility that they are around here right now bitching & bickering about shutter shock, compressed RAW, equivalence...

On article Canon 7D mirror box filmed at 10,000fps (175 comments in total)
In reply to:

FRANCISQUAN: I'm just amazed that the Canon 7D mirror box can film at 10,000fps yet Nikon struggle with their flare ridden 6.5 fps full frame camera.

I guess Canon is the way to go for the newer technologies like 4K..

It's not only the 7D mirror box; actually, there are many, many things that can be filmed @ 10,000 fps to be better undestood. Nikon FF mirror boxes, bullets ripping thru apples, H-bomb deflagrations...

Would'nt
"Canon's Q4 report shows THEIR camera sales are down"
be a more, err... journalistically correct headline?

Roland Karlsson: The biggest question is - is there an alpha channel? I.e., can you make "real" tattoos where the skin is visible?

An Exacto knife will do.

In reply to:

RichRMA: We've gotten to the point where computer design, and other innovations in lens manufacturing should allow what used to produce horrible results (add-on lenses) to produce respectable images today. Vignetting on macros is no big problem since most macros rarely include the whole field of view anyway.

No one said there would be a vignetting issue "on macros".
What's written on the copy is
"when used at normal focus distances with the larger format",
which in turn was condensed from the manufacturer's FAQ,
"you can use this lens in Full Frame Camera. Everything can work EXCEPT you will get slight vignetting during infinity focus."

Karl Summers: No EXIF data?

Whereas pretty much like everyone else I don't' like to think myself as a Luddite, DDemolder's witty "notebook" comment makes me wonder how much of our cherished EXIF data will survive 152½ years in the future!

wherearemyshorts: all that money for the camera as shown in the photo and it is possible to still see the 2 screws holding the grip to the body.

not well done at all

a great reason to close the facility

Some like double-sided adhesive tape better.

Marty4650: I wonder if Hassleblad finally realized what all the laughter was about?

Of course, the real joke is on anyone who spent $8,000 to buy a Sony NEX-7 dressed up in a Hassleblad suit.

A "Hassleblad" (or Hasslebadly) SUIT?? Please don't give'em ideas, else we'are all doomed to see "Hasselblad authentic-turtle shell rimmed google glasses"!)

This Spencer guy is witty. "What we have here is the world's first 23mm f/1.7-2.8 lens" is priceless...

steelhead3: Dell has a 31.5"4k monitor with all of the goodies mentioned for less than $1600 on Amazon.

Got reasons to suspect that when steelhead3 mentioned a 31"/$1600 monitor he was thinking about a wide-gamut panel to be put on his desk, not on the back his camera.

Just a little question I believe no one's posed yet... what good would it be for Mr. Stater to have his (or the monkey's) photo deleted?

Valentinian: "Copyright law states that works not originated by a human author can't support a copyright claim"
The picture originated in the owner's camera; also, because he owns the camera and the memory card he also own whatever is in it. Wikipedia doesn't own it.
'a work owing its form to the forces of nature and lacking human authorship is not registrable.'
But if he (presumably) edited the picture, then shouldn't his editing work be copyrightable?
Also if he allowed the monkey to take pictures (or didn't stop it by taking the camera rightaway from the monkey) then he "used" the monkey as an assistant photographer...
So the picture should be registrable.
Anyway, a monkey is not a "force of nature": it is a living inteligent being, capable of this kind of behaviour..

If the monkey in question is not a force of nature but rather "a living inteligent being, capable of this kind of behavior", then you're pointing out one more reason to deem him the *legitimate* copyright holder!

Jim in Hudson: So what's the new button on the front for?

"but why is it not knurled?"
A hunch: if you have two dials on the same plane, one knurled and other not, chances are the latter is meant for an analog setting, say, manual focus.

In reply to:

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?

In reply to:

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.

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.
