On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (1845 comments in total)
In reply to:

LTZ470: f/1.2 = f/1.2 = f/1.2 = Shutter Speed...f/1.2 w/ f/2.4 DOF gives faster Shutter Speed which is THE critical factor...I'll say it again faster shutter speed with increased DOF which is advantageous in many applications... ;-)

"the EM1 and 100-300 makes the FF system obsolete for all practical purpose"

LOL, yeah right! That's why all the sports and Nature pros are switching to an EM-1 with 100-300....... What an incredibly ignorant comment that clearly indicates a deep lack of understanding of this article or photography in general.

Battery? Oh you actually wanted to use it as a camera? Most buyers of our cameras simply display them in collections or use them as heirloom jewelry! A battery is an optional accessory that will cost you an additional $995.99. :)

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1048 comments in total)
In reply to:

Reservoir_Dog: Preview of the D4S, still no review of the D4, so no review of the D4s

Feels like they would rather concentrate on multiple reviews of 42 megapixel cell phones :(

In reply to:

completelyrandomstuff: CMOS sensor in 645D... no one has any idea who manufactured that ;).
This should be a bargain medium format if it has the same imaging performance as phase one or HB.

Since Pentax cameras are able to shoot in DNG format and C1 supports DNG, it should process the files.

On Fujifilm teases upcoming SLR-style X system camera article (921 comments in total)
In reply to:

rb59020: Retro like the Df

Except this has a logical layout of the dials unlike the DF where you have to take your left hand out from under the lens, where it belongs, to turn the exposure compensation dial.

In reply to:

LarryK: Geez, the BH-55 went up since I bought mine, and it was too expensive then.

I'm going to try a Siriu.

Isn't it even MORE expensive if you already purchased a BH-55 and now you are going to buy a Siriu in addition...? ;)

On Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan article (619 comments in total)
In reply to:

Grobb: What is the reason it will not be sold in the European or US markets? Seems like that limits the sales possibilities just a bit? Does anyone know why Canon is doing this? I'm not interested in such an ugly, bland camera with so few features, just wondering why they limit sales to only one region.

Because the cost of bringing it here and marketing it exceeds the profit from selling them here.

E.J.: Typo at the top of the Spec table where the lens is listed as f/1.8 rather than f/1.4:

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.8G specifications

Thanks for correcting it :)

On Just posted: Our Canon EOS 70D hands-on preview article (355 comments in total)
In reply to:

rodney in brisbane: Let's wait until we see the reviews. For many stills photographers, the 70D will only be interesting if its high ISO performance and dynamic range is significantly better than those of the 60D and 7D.

As is already stated in a different way, no new RAW conversion techniques need be invented because the internal image processor combines the two photo diodes into a single pixel before it ever writes the RAW file. So to a RAW converter it is a conventional Bayer Array sensor with 20MP.

In reply to:

tkbslc: Maybe the next EOS M won't suck as bad.

Canon should scrap the existing EOS-M today and immediately announce this sensor in an EOS -M2 and deliver it within three months.

In reply to:

neo_nights: One simple question about on-sensor PDAF: does it suffer from back/front focus as well, as if it was a normal AF module?
Or on-PDAF gives us the best of both worlds: speed of a PDAF and accuracy of a CDAF (since both are going to be sensor-based)

If your company name is Sigma then it's a 40MP sensor - see Foveon specs ;) , everybody else, rightly calls it a 20MP sensor with two photo diodes per pixel.

On New CompactFlash card to allow RAID-style 'mirroring' article (100 comments in total)

This is stupid, the things that cause most of these cards to fail would impact both sides. This is marketing gimmickry at it's finest

Yup, one that doesn't cost three times as much as a pseudo equivalent camera from anyone else.

OneGuy: Adobe: Lousy software. My PDF conversion from MS Word 2010 inserts edge artifacts -- hate to use it. Conversion of my manuscript to PDF was a royal pain (the only way to do it 7 yrs ago).

Adobe: A monopoly with US Govt backing. Sherman doesn't like it.

Bottom line: I don't use it. I deleted flash player and didn't even notice. Have no Adobe software except PDF reader and looking for replacement.

Get the free shareware PDF Creator. SImply print out of word to PDF to get a file that looks exactly like your word doc. The PDF's aren't editable though.
