BBking83: It's amazing how articles like these get no traction of conversation about gear and the "FF" war.

Really nice photos in there, regardless of what they used and how they used it. They just took photos.

I know right? You'd think after David Burnett won the white house photographers award with a shot from a Holga that people would "get it."

Some of the best people I know are photo people, unfortunately a lof of the worst people I know are also photo people.

arbuz: L-Fn button - so Olympus now copies Samsung NX solutions? Well, well, who would have thought...

They've had the L-Fn buttons for well over a year now.

On article Did Sigma design the Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm F1.8? (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

Frank_BR: Something is very strange in this history.

The Zuiko 75mm F1.8 lens was announced in Feb 8, 2012. However, according to the Egami blog the Sigma patent's filing date is Feb 3, 2012, that is, only five days before the announcement.

On the other hand, after a lens design starts, it takes months, if not years, until the production (and announcement) effectively happens. So, it is not reasonable to think that Sigma started the design process of that lens long before filing the patent application.

I just chalked it up to being an OEM.

digitalanalog: Sony's thoughts:

I'm Jim and I'm an average tech user. Both me and my girlfriend / wife like photography, like everybody else, and we also want to take good pictures, let's say in a pro-style so we need a 'good camera'. But we're not rich.

Facts:
1. Both of us already own a $600 smartphone.
2. We want to buy a DSLR but body only is min. $600 plus lens.
3. Hey! New Sony a3000, interchangeable lens DSLR body PLUS lens PLUS 20mp!

Logical output?

Both your girlfriend AND wife like photography, win win.

Sony does in lens stabilization for it's mirrorless, not in body. Maybe in the future, but not this one.

M0P03: Sony has made good job for price drop. Resonable 400$ for EVF mirrorless APS-C comparing to 1000$ for smaller sensor Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7. Shame on greedy Panasonic.

Sensor size isn't everything, and "greedy?" They're for profit electronic corporations, of course they are. You're comparing Panasonic's high end camera with Sony's strimpped down no frills camera.

fhe: QV-10 cannot possibly have been the first consumer digital camera. My dad had a roundish one with a name like Sony? IOS (impossible to google nowadays) which stored data on 2.5" disks. It must have been at least a couple of years before 1995.

"The QV-10 was one of the first consumer digital cameras" not "the first"

steelhead3: DP gives Nikon and Canon mirrorless their own threads and already these cameras are being put out to pasture. Competing with the big boys ,Sony, Panasonic, Olympus, and Fuji was too much for their R&D depts. and they will retreat to 1950's style cameras and hope for the best.

"Japan fought besides Britain in WW1 and Germany in WW2."

What exactly does that have to do with anything?

snegron2: Dear Nikon,

If you make a digital rangefinder, many of us will buy it. We want something better than entry level mirrorless cameras. Sadly, even if you did read this post you would probably ignore it.

I would totally buy one too... however they'll sell less of those than that did the Nikon 1, and the profit per camera can't possibly very good if it's not on the high end of the price scale.

utomo99: Hello everybody (all manufacturer) :
Now the Trend is Big Sensor and Fast lens.
Please make the camera like that.
Do not make toy cameras with Small sensor with Big MP again.
Camera phone can match it easily.

Would you believe not everyone wants a full frame f1.0 camera? In fact, I think there's quite a few people who don't really give a damn and just want a picture.

I would like building one, and I'm in my mid-30's. I'd have a blast doing it.

jkoch2: Might a contemporary DSLR or camcorder, with a plain f/2.8 lens, shoot video comparable to what Kubrick needed for candlelit film shots in 1974? Didn't the Barry Lyndon scenes benefit from a wee dose of supplementary lighting anyway? There were at least a whole lot of candles. A single candle, on the other hand, would be a difficult (lense flare, blowout) shot, except maybe for a facial closeup. Its hard to photograph both the moon against a starry sky too.

yes- it is known for sure.

On article 17 signs that you were alive before digital photography (149 comments in total)

I taught a photoshop intro class to college freshman, and one asked why the dodge tool was called dodge and why the icon looked like a black lollipop. I explained that it was a darkroom tool, but no one ever used a store bought tool- usually you just waved around a wadded up ball of tape on a unfolded paperclip or wire coat hanger to light up the print. They were totally lost by the explanation.

Richard Ettinger: nice design. would love it if it were APS-C. MFT not so much.

The differences between the 2 are not as great as people think they are. I'm not sure why people think that APS-C is ahuge compared to µ4/3.

If you want a noticeable every day difference, you have to go big or go home- Full Frame, that's a noticeable difference.

That's something I'd love to play with... if impossible instant film weren't so expensive :(
