RayVagh: I remember PopPhoto claimed as The world's largest imaging magazine, now it's sad to see Popular Photography closed. Bought a few issues of Popular Photography from 85-95, still have them besides American Photo, Petersen's Photographic, Outdoor Photographers, Photo Asia & Foto Media. Time to throw them all into a trash bin.

PS. My favorite contributor is Herbert Keppler (Vice President & Director of Publishing), he usually writes several articles in one edition.

H.Keppler was my favorite also in Pop. and Modern Photography, unfortunately he is no longer with us.

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta's prosumer DiMAGE 7 (177 comments in total)

I bought a Dimage 7 when it came out for $1,200. it was a camera I loved to hate, the EVF was garbage and everyone knows about the batteries, the colors were dull, but I still have it, I do IR with it occasionally. I'm going to invest in a Digipower to help me love it more.

Gesture: Good to see this feature back on track. For those exploring the history of digital photography, when $1,500 cameras can be bought for less than $100, I suggest investing in a Digipower DPS-9000.

Really solves the battery issues with cameras like these. I've found them on eBay and a company called Thomas Distributing used to carry them.

http://www.thomasdistributing.com/

One of the early digitals with a pretty infrared sensitive sensor. I used a 720nm filter. You can view through the LCD and the camera will focus. The images are red and can be processed to a nice black and white. Could never get custom white balance to work through the filter.

Hi, thanks for that Digipower link, I have been looking for something like that for my Dimage7.

Creating a haptic experience indeed! Leica can't sell enough of their regular cameras so they come up with gimmicks like this, I wouldn't buy this thing even if I had the money.

My son-in-law's dad was a photographer and bought the Fuji S1 Pro for $4,000 when it first came out, it had a 2" screen and 3MP. A couple of years later he lent to me for my first trip to Asia, I fell in love with it but couldn't afford one and that became my only experience with Fuji cams.

mario loconte: I do not understand whether I am poor or this lens is too expensive. 😁

I'm disappointed it's not a MF 50mm/f2 and costing $8,000.

adegroot: I hate Leica.
Crazy snobbish and greedy company.
What an arrogance!

Lamborghini outperforms most of it's competitors, Leica doesn't.

$8,000 for 50mm/f2? give me a break!

Where is the cherry wood grip?
A perfect camera for a masochist.

I bet the Pen-F wasn't designed by Newton.

I think you are right about Fuji introducing a MF camera in the near future. Aren't they already producing MF for Hasselblad?

On article Kodak revives Super 8 with part-digital cine camera (362 comments in total)

Super-8. I didn't like then and I don't like it now. It used to cost approx. $20 to buy and develop a roll for 5 min. of mediocre movie.

On article Adapted Lens Talk: Readers' Showcase and new forum! (197 comments in total)
In reply to:

ProfHankD: I use over 140 non-native lenses with my Sonys (and an EOS-M), and I post plenty in various forums here... but there are a couple of problems with this new forum. Basically, it tends toward lens reviews, but:

1. It isn't structured (nor indexed) in a way that makes lenses easy to find.

2. There is a huge difference between using a lens on different formats (e.g., 24MP APS-C vs. 24MP FF) and there is no infrastructure for saying what evaluations are based on.

For example, Dyxum has a much more effective structure for user lens reviews (except they don't make posting sample images easy).

I'm not opposed to this new forum, and I post there myself, but I would encourage DPReview to consider making some custom infrastructure for handing user reviews of old lenses. It should be possible to modify the existing equipment review infrastructure to have the right fields and indexing and to allow review of legacy equipment.... Just something to think about. ;-)

Wrong, Amazon is a source for buying old lenses.
