RazorTM: And Nikon is pronounced "knee cone."

Bokeh comes from the word "bokeru" which means "to be blurred."

You seriously think that the o in boku in those examples is closer to the o in "bock" or "lock"?

And "most people" must have forgotten what they learned in kindergarten. "long o" does not mean "long duration" and never did.

I think you are all confused. "Long o" doesn't mean "drag the o out to make it last longer." It is the particular sound that the o makes, i.e. long o = go, mow, grow, slow, boat, etc. Short o = boss, hog, pot, not, etc. Long e = reap, sleep, deep, etc. The character に is pronounced with a "long e sound" but that doesn't mean you drag the sound out to make it last longer. Long or short in duration, it is still the long e sound.

Antisthenes, neither boss nor bass is a long o sound like in boke. Are you just stupid or what? If you want to talk about conceited, you should look in the mirror.

私は6年間日本に住んでいて、十分に日本語の練習をやってきた。母音は「あ、い、う、え、お」しかない。「boss」の「bo」は「ば」と発音するので、「ぼけ」の「ぼ」と一緒にしないで。

Who's conceited? Not me, thanks.

Your examples use the wrong vowel sound. Knee cone is the closest you can get to the correct pronunciation in English, just that you need to shorten it up rather than dragging out the sounds. Please don't make people think that it's pronounced "nick con" or because you apparently know Japanese and you should know better.

And how did you get "bo" as in "boss"?! It's the wrong vowel sound! Listen to the video you posted. The very first word spoken is "boke" and it is not pronounced like you said!

Here's an actual Japanese person pronouncing it:

No, they pronounce the i as a long e sound, as in "neep pone," as I said above. I speak Japanese and I lived in Japan for 6 years. Nikon is a combination of Nikko and Ikon (of Zeiss fame). Pronounced "knee cone" in Japanese.

Well, Nippon is pronounced "neep pone," so yes, it is like Nippon.

I have a feeling that you pronounce Nippon incorrectly...

Frank_BR: MF where? MF was the format derived from the 120 and 220 films, which had a nominal width of 6 cm (56mm or 2 1/4 inch to be exact). To be MF at least one dimension must be equal to 56mm. True MF formats were 6x4.5, 6x6, 6x7, 6x9, etc.

3.3 x 4.4 cm is not MF! It is fake MF. It is a digital age fraud. Maybe it should be called e-FF (enhanced FF) or so. Never MF!

PS1: Excellent article, one of the best I've read in the last 3.3 or 4.4 years. Congrats!
PS2: Wake me when Fuji makes a true MF camera ... zzzzzzz ...

"Fake MF"? lol. I hope you realize that 44x33mm is approximately a 1.26x crop of "full frame" 6x4.5 (which is ~56x41.5mm) and that there are "full frame" MF cameras with 53.7x40.4mm (~1.04x crop) sensors on the market right now.

This is the same as 35mm-format DSLRs where 1.6x and 1.5x crop cameras came out first followed by "full frame" cameras a few years later.

santamonica812: I'm a liberal (generally). But for something like this, I'd like to see a 20 year prison sentence. To rape the environment, only because it feels good to behave like a complete @sshole, and to ruin the vista for tens/hundreds of thousands of people, for years to come . . . it makes me see red.

A pity that $5,000 and 6 months is the most they can give.

What a waste of sperm and egg this person is.

20 years? That's absolutely ridiculous for just leaving some tracks on the ground. Maybe we should give Mother Nature 20 years solitary confinement for causing the Azure Window in Malta to collapse into the ocean.

Why don't you ask Adobe instead?
