On Mono a mono: Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) hands-on article (343 comments in total)
In reply to:

martindpr: What is the purpose of having a B&W camera in the XXI century?

Shoot color and then desaturate! Or let me guess: If you have a B&W project, you leave your D810 (or your 5D3/5Ds) at home, go buy one Leica and do the job 100% better than you would have done it with your D810??

"brings the black-and-white-only concept up to date", they should have said "brings the date back to the old black and white concept"

(The luminance resolution of a Bayer sensor is full (e.g., 36MP) while the color resolution is half (e.g., 9MP).
I don't think so, the black & white photo is the same output like the color, but disaturated in software, that is the difference this Leica camera makes.

There is one reason, higher resolution, with this camera you get 24 MP b&w picture, with your d810 you will get only 9MP b&w or color picture (even if they tell you it is a 36MP camera), 36/4= 9, two green, one blue and one red.

Now put this camera on a tripod, have three color filters with you, RGB, take 3 shots with each filter, then combine the 3 images to produce a super resolution color picture, so the owners have an limited option to take beautiful color pictures with their monochrome camera, am I right? what do you think?

RogerMuss: Seems crazy that all this magnificent craftsmanship that is built to last decades will be obsoleted in a year or so when the next sensor turns up. If Leica made a camera with a sensor module that could be replaced then I'd invest in the system.

Red has one, Ricoh tried a similar idea, sensor built to lens, you have to throw the lens and sensor just keep the shell for the next sensor and lens, if someone can make a changeable sensor like a memory card slot, push it to take it out, and put your new sensor.

Chris Noble: No hand-grip, a single control wheel, fixed LCD... how much does this camera cost?

Monochrome sensor is the same sensor used in all digital cameras without RGB coloring on them, also without all hardware and software needed to combine 3 or 4 Photodiodes to produce one dot of color information, so it should cost much less, I am not a technician, but that is what I understand.

bakhtyar kurdi: I noticed many pictures are front focused, especially with fast long lenses, I don't know if those cameras has micro focus adjustment, if not, that will be a big problem.
There is only a few pictures that are really sharp, it looks like the sensor is capable, the problem lies in focus problem, if you look at the picture of the white dog, you see clearly the focus point is before its legs.

(Well If you want in focus pictures with any lenses buy the 70D or 7DMII)
I think everyone want pictures in focus with any lenses, the problem rises now because we have 24MP Rebels , and is easier to see any flows in focusing, we had a similar problem with Nikon D800, many people still believe that D700 had a better focusing system, but that is totally wrong, the 36MP needs very accurate AF system, so when Canon decided to go to 24MP after everyone else, they have to know they are facing other technical problems, they need to put at least AFMA, also the ISO noise is behind everyone else as I see from above samples, this a competition, and if they stay greedy they'll break and die.

Look also at the lady standing by the shore, the focus point is way behind her.

sex trading and drugs are connected firmly to each other, those kids don't do that to eat, but to buy drugs, so it is impossible to find a solution without solving the drug problem first, all those kids are working like slaves for drug dealers. whatever they get goes to their pockets.
But why kids addict to drugs first? it is simple, they are not satisfied with their life, so they run away from reality, and drugs help them to live in a fantastic world, drug and sex market is like a wound in humans community, where the bacterias are happy, which are drug dealers and sex customers.
But how to help those victims? It is not something new, it exists from the begging of humanity, but how bad is it in our generation? it is very bad, I read a report about this problem in England and it says %50 of women do that in one stage of their life, so there is something going wrong with the whole humanity, in my humble opinion the problem lies in ignoring our spiritual needs.

Tokina had a big failure with their 70-200/4, Canon and Nikon did a very good job at that range, and Tokina wants to sell their 10yrs late lens for the same price as Canon and Nikon, If this lens is not superior to Tamron that has Image stabilization, I think it will not sell better than their 70-200.

bakhtyar kurdi: From experience I found something interesting, but I didn't know the reason, as we know stopping down the aperture gives sharper images until the diffraction starts,and we have a sweet spot depending on the pixel density of the sensor,usually around f8, there is something similar to that related to exposure time (shutter speed).
with longer shutter speeds, you get more saturated, less noisy images, but something similar to the diffraction happens in longer shutter speeds, the sweet spot is between 4-15 seconds, after that suddenly it gets worse and worse.
To make it simpler, if we take two images of the same sense, the first image taken at ISO 100, F8, 1/125 sec, then we take the second picture using ND filters until our settings become ISO 100, F8, 8seconds, the second image is more saturated, has less noise, better DR and much richer files.
I think this article explains my findings, what do you think?

This is an article about this :

No, it is real, and a few people wrote about it, I didn't want to go to details, supposed most people know when we talk about 8 seconds we have first to stabilize our camera and taking picture of a still subject,so there is nothing to do with motion blur, yes we get exact the same amount of light, but less random photons.
Try by yourself those shutter speeds (3-15 seconds) , and you'll find even a P&S camera can produce amazing pictures.

They have another clone for the Canon EF 50mm 1.8 II long time ago, the only difference in appearance is the name of Yongnuo instead of Canon, it is $70 new, while the original Canon is $90

In reply to:

bakhtyar kurdi: For anyone wants to buy these kind of totally manual focus lenses, I recommend to buy only Nikon version whatever camera you have, you can then buy a cheap $7.00 adapter to convert it to Canon , If you are using Sony E mount, probably you already have a Canon to Sony E mount adapter, this way you have the lens for 3 systems with $7.00 extra, and you are not loosing any function, also if you change your system you don't stuck with your lens, resale price also will be higher on the Nikon version than any other mount.

(In the examples above, though, center resolution is pretty much unchanged, it's only when you get away from center that you start to see issues. So someone shooting portraits and centered subjects is unlikely to notice an issue. A landscape photographer, though, would likely see some problems along the edges of the image.)
That is what he said, and no one buy this kind of lenses for corner to corner sharpness, because they never get sharp in corners anyways,just my experience.

This is art, but it is becoming hard to find real art lovers.
I don't know how old is the artist, but you need one age to see simple as that.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review preview (836 comments in total)
In reply to:

Manah: This review is FRUSTRATING and unprofessional.A camera whose lens is too short to be used to take portrait shots should not be on the market and really - should not even be reviewed.

How about Sony RX1? is it useless also?
70mm is perfectly good for portraits

Is that forever, or until you die?
Do they have any (Rent To Own) plan?
