On Just Posted: Fujifilm X20 review article (175 comments in total)

Last lines of the summary:
"...if you desire a larger sensor, more depth-of-field, an optical viewfinder, and a Hybrid AF system, then it's worth forking out the extra dough for the X20."
I believe you meant either "...less depth-of-field" or "...more control over the depth-of-field". Nicely done review as usual, though.

mpgxsvcd: What is the focal ratio for the lens on this camera?

If you mean the factor to get the 35 mm-equivalent focal length from the actual FL... it's 5.6x. (4.5-45 physical, 25-200 eq.)
(However, what determines this so-called "crop factor" is the sensor diagonal, not a particular lens or camera.)

Simon97: I "get" what this camera is for, but I don't get the $180 MSPR. No video, even smaller than the usual small 1/3" sensor. Price should be $49 and blister packed, hanging next to the Vivitars.

"a bit vague about audio though, seems to have no mic"
I know the specs say "no mic", I know, but there is definitely a mic pinhole at 11 o'clock around the polished lens collar.

edu T: From the sensor makers, http://www.truesenseimaging.com/news-and-events/34-msl-landing:
"MastCam-100 [based on a 1600x1200px sensor] can detect an object about the size of 2 golf balls from a distance of 1 km."
Do these figures make any sense, even taking into account local (martian air to glass) refractive indexes and whatnot?
Could they be relying on some kind of mechanical oversampling, namely by shifting the sensor by a fraction of the pixel pitch and then re-shooting?
Or is it 2019 Esper tech (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkcU0gwZUdg) came true in 2012?

@ Biowizard: Right, it's a 100 mm lens / 300 mm eq. The sensor is the 1" KAI-2020, whose diagonal is 14,8 mm. Thus crop factor=2.92. (http://www.truesenseimaging.com/products/interline-transfer-ccd/31-KAI-2020)

guyfawkes: Hmm, just what does "Envisioning Family" mean? Shouldn't a book title let on just a little of what it is about?

The title of the book is "Envisioning Family: A Photographer’s Guide to Making Meaningful Portraits of the Modern Family". I fail to see how it could have been made more descriptive.

Looks like an engaging and very insightful book... but its publishers could well have hired a copy editor: “[the message to relax the hands] can be a soft reminder that can illicit a more natural reaction overall.” ;)

On Gariz leather half-case for Sony RX100 article (49 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mssimo: Gariz have been making some of the best cases for mirror-less cameras. I would say they are as good if not better than the OEM cases you can buy.

Masking tape works only with the camera you apply it on (besides lacking in style).
But at 2/3 the price of the Gariz you can solve the problem of fingerprints on the front of EVERY camera you handle (yet with style) -- http://www.patriciafield.com/browseproducts/Leather-Finger-Tip-Gloves.html

Chaitanya S: I don't mind those cables as long as they don't come in the way of lens and sensor. this great news for many macro shooter as they can use their canon macro lenses to achieve higher magnification ratios with their canon macro lenses.

Never mind those cables, they're bound to be replaced by flat cables inside the barrel of the production model. Those Kipon photos are clearly an early "proof of concept" prototype, wtih hand-wired connections and all.

edu T: If there is such thing as "real photography", who is debasing it?

"For me, the secret of good photography is editing [which means] we can remove the ex-partner from the party shot…"
No, it's not about the Soviet Communist Party photos retouched under Stalin's instructions, she surely meant an office party...

Here's a handful of tragicomic before/after examples of this "ex-partner removal" editing style:

On Concert Footage from Nokia 808 Pureview article (266 comments in total)

Alas, nothing's perfect... Nokia forgot to fit a 2nd microphone into the case, thus the audio, despite its good enough dynamics and frequency response, is... MONO! :(

On Just posted: Fujifilm X10 in-depth review article (155 comments in total)

A correction is due in the EXR-DR part (page 9): "In this mode the sensor starts reading from alternate lines of photosites (ending their exposure), part of the way through the total exposure time. This means half the sensor stops capturing light early."
But as per the mentioned Born’s article and also some tests on the fuji forum, "half the sensor is exposed shorter and LATER."

In page 11-dynamic range, the "Shadow Correction" graph is actually the "Highlight Correction" graph and vice versa. (It took me twelve hours to figure out why both looked so strange.)

Now there’s nothing left to hold DPR from publishing their X10 review.

Everlast66: I don't believe that any normal individual would make the effort required to distinguish between the dosens of P&S models available from Sony and Nikon. The only people that make any sense of these letter combinations HZ/X/V/S/P/L and 000 000 000 numbrs are Sony and Nikon marketing "specialists" .... and this is because they are PAID to do it!

Nikon has 7 S models, 2-3 P models, L models, AW model and the projector model. I have never been able to get my head around the Sony numbering system. I don't even want to think about Panasonic and Samsung.

Why not cut down to three models each, make the choices for the customers. Apple proved this can be done, and actually I think this is one of their greatest strengths!

Everlast66, meet the Fuji superzoom and P&S lineup... :)
