J A C S: I do not care much about video but to me 60 frames per second beats 4K at lower frame rates. Resolution in time is not less important than resolution in space.

Majority of tv show, football match every week in Australia are all still using 1080P and they haven't plan to go for 4K yet, still many years away for tv show to start 4K. Plus 4K use up too much data is a major downside to me though.

In reply to:

NicoPPC: Looks great!

DPR may think about hoy they handle their samples gallery. The ACR produce, so far one can see, terrible result in comparaison over RAW's convertor.

Maybe use the camera jpeg or makers raw's convertor.. But, looking at the ACR's result is pretty bad for any lens/camera...

ACR does clip sunset image and it make colour look awful, Captureone do not. Cos its flaw in ACR camera profile, any profile even your custom profile won't work well with sunset.

Yeah I am real struggle with ACR conversion because of colours though. I think captureone does a bit better than ACR.

PhotoKhan: This green/blue tone in every single photo...Now I know: My Canon EOS M5 must secretly be made by Nikon.

So is my monitor calibrated with i1 Display Pro and using Dispcal. I don't see problem with most of my photos with this calibrated monitor. Its all adobe colour profile problem that they select in calibration setting.

If you look at gardens sample in greenhouse from normal JPEG it looks better than edited to taste, less radioactive green.

In reply to:

pepeta: I am impressed by these shots! Is it colors? contrast? shadows and highlights? sharpness? Why do they look far better than Nikon D7500?

Yes Nikon is the winner for far more neutral image.

lingccp: X-A3 produces sharper image on my screen. Is this real?

For x-tran like most reviewer said best use iridient, much better result than LR/ACR. LR/ACR is mainly good for conventional sensor bayer.

Probably Fuji aggressive sharpening algorithm. Should not use too much sharpening on images that is produced by bayer sensor rather than x-tran sensor. X-tran sensor need special sharpening that is different to bayer sensor.

On article DPReview on TWiT: Is the Sony a9 worth $4500? (223 comments in total)

I still think I stick to A7RII or so for the balance of both landscape shooting and action shooting. I prefer this way.

In reply to:

naththo: That is much more honest review than blind vote camera in other page, your daylight image sample looks underwhelmed, not nice sample so it looks like camera is not doing well with this situation of difficult lighting and in plain lighting. I am sticking to Samsung cos it does better for me, I have is S6 Edge and I am happy with this, it does support RAW but I like Samsung algorithm of colours and contrast better but sharpening seems aggressive similar behaviour to Sony. Glad to see this is a proper review, not nonsense blind vote photos sample in other page.

What I meant was: I saw some scene that like in grey stone or so should be grey not green cast in some of LG sample, and the shadow looks quiet bland/boring not much contrast. That is why it is underwhelmed sample to me. It needs better algorithm to have better outcome out of JPEG. Probably not very good algorithm so far from LG Im sorry to say.

In reply to:

Bambi24: All of these shots really could have been made on a smartphone, which tend to be around 28mm equivalent.

They're not demanding on the AF system, nor were they shot in challenging lighting conditions.

I like the shots, it's not that, but they could have been made on any camera or smartphone.

Don't feed that MaxEyeSore Pentax Troll.

In reply to:

ProfHankD: I hate Provia. To me, these all look way too contrasty -- with shadows all blocked-up and whites just slightly blown-out. I will admit that Fuji does a great job of matching the look of their films, but I never liked their films very much and that Sony sensor is capable of so much better!

The lens seems to do well enough to be very versatile with nice bokeh for a zoom. Flare is bad in a couple of shots... until I notice they're at f/32 and f/22. Those are not apertures I'd ever use (other than to check for dust on the sensor ;-) ).

I second that, colours rendition? Yuck!

Problem is video card will be a big issue problem. HIgher end of 1080 Ti still has issue problem with 4K gaming resolution that still falling well below 60 fps on most newer game with Dx12. Even still have problem in older game with Dx11. Video movie and graphic in gaming use a lot of video processing. 8K would just make 1080 Ti video card fail so easy even SLI.

On article Sony a9: more speed, less dynamic range (666 comments in total)
In reply to:

bclaff: For those who may be curious I have revised the estimated Photographic Dynamic Range (PDR) available at http://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Nikon%20D5,Sony%20ILCE-7RM2,Sony%20ILCE-9(estimate)
Still looks like the A9 is on track for having about the same PDR as the A7RM2.

Yeah i agreed, the sample picture above the noise was not as severe as Nikon D5 in based ISO.

azinheira: My Fuji 10-24 With Xt-20 have better colors and contrast.

I was on Sony and not very happy.

azinheira, Adobe Camera RAW and Lightroom does not have proper support for camera colour profile yet, it is still not final production yet. Thats what they said in the text I read last night, not a final production yet.

Any chance of studio comparison to add so I can compare against warmer colours raw file of Nikon instead of green Sony raw file?

On article FilmLab is a film negative scanning app for smartphones (112 comments in total)

I no longer use Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 ED because of flare problem for slide film and it cannot be resolved as I try to clean etc, nothing resolved. So I stick to Plustek Opticfilm 120 which is much newer and does not introduce flare and it comes out a lot cleaner scan, even has much better colour and white balance stability than old Nikon. Nikon has much narrow depth of field which is not very good, so it scan with shallow focus compare to Plustek is fixed focus but wider depth of field which is much better and more sharpness. I scan at default 5300 DPI not allowed up/down scale as it will ruin the quality of image. It can be done later in post process. Plustek scanner however is much slower than Nikon but better result I am happy with it. Bad thing from Plustek is no auto focus or manual focus adjustment mean that the slide film scanner will not be good thing. Nikon seems to be the best choice for slide mount film.

Adjusted to taste?

Ice becomes reddish.

Do DP folks use calibrated monitors? :-P

It would probably take hours messing around to make the ice white and people look normal opposed to unhealthy, sickness stricken.

"Whatever"
