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.

In reply to:

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 article (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.)

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?

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

On Panasonic announces 4K-capable Lumix DMC-GH4 article (118 comments in total)
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).

That was the kind of lame joke you're likely to hear when you first dissect a frog at a Vet class.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: "A typical DSLR has around 120 screws of 11 different sizes."

This cadaver had only 29 screws of just three different sizes.

THAT says a LOT of what's going on inside those R&D labs... they deliver.

Other brands just re-badge, clone and tweak.

.

"This CADAVER had only 29 screws".
But why on Earth do you assume Cicala & crew aren't skilled enough (or Frankensteinian enough...) to manage to reassemble and re-animate it, uh?
Read the 1st lines of their original post (linked on the copy) to find out!

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' article (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

Robert A: Not quite enthralled with an SLR-style camera, even if it is mirrorless. Regardless of how many technical strengths this camera offers over the XE-2 and its competitors, it really doesn't offer much product differentiation. For my needs, if it's got an APS sensor, it also should have an optical viewfinder like the X-Pro 1.

yabokkie,
something like your "preferable" camera, APS-C format + 4.8" lcd + big grip + android OS has been around for some 6mo:

If it's not near enough, please start making sense!

DPR, please check the "first PowerShot to use Canon's new DIGIC 6" bit.
Actually it's the FIFTH, as digic 6 was introduced in the SX280 travel-zoom and its stripped-down version SX270 (last March), and then came the S120 and G16 higher-end compacts (August).

In reply to:

kimchiflower: Photography is Nikon's only business (as far as I'm aware, and unlike Canon), yet they didn't win anything, not even a runner-up.

Oops....

They also make sophisticated (IC waffer UV photolithography) steppers, probably nice enough to be at least the runner-up (amid ASML, Ultratech, Canon, Intel and no one else).

In reply to:

Vinc T: How can I view the results without voting? I am not familiar with the cameras here and I will not vote.

Your honesty is laudable, you want to see the score but don't want to skew the poll with a vote you humbly believe is not qualified.
So I suggest you pick one at random (6 candidates beg a dice) and vote; I can tell you that, since 1000+ votes are already tallied at his moment, a single vote will hardly bias the results.

Well, dear yabokkie, if as you say mick232 is NOT confused, then you are living in the '90s indeed. But I see this exchange going on almost in real time, which in turn implies... Geez man I knew there must've been a reason today I woke up listening to Nirvana and L7! Help, where's my Sonic Youth laser disc...?

But then, a13, he'd have written "this FPS,that i/p". Anyway, with the current time lag, he'll surely clarify it in less than 20 years from now.
