Like drops of water there are still a few companies out there who invest in an experiment and a complete story rather then, god forbid, buy some $10 stock photography for their mundane ads.

On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2647 comments in total)
In reply to:

temama: Gold award! Yes, well deserved! Sony A9 is great camera. It has the best AF system I have ever tried (DSLR or mirrorless). Sony shows the way, and innovate - in a mighty way!!

Until you'll need support or to take it to a Sony customer service centre.

On article Primer: What is VR, and why should photographers care? (141 comments in total)

Why do some Exec. must add ..."this and that will change the world". Who's world? Third world who barely have electricity, food, water and air left to breath? I do however think that VR and AR will have a positive impact in some industries such as medicine but seriously would it change the WORLD? At the moment it's just another cool gimmick for board Gen Y.

I am being sarcastic. Not sure if you ever saw the movie Spinal Tap.

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

4 years with Canon 6D and going strong. great ISO range and plenty of room to push shadows in post. Interesting technical article though.

mmcfine: Wow. Microsoft are not ashamed to mimic Apple's brand down to the font type. Lovely looking device but at the end of the day I simply don't trust Microsoft. Too many NT, XP, Vista etc. experiences burnt me out long time ago.

I wasn't referring to the hardware nor products. relax man... I was referring to the entire brand design, commercial art-direction etc. Have you been in a Microsoft store lately? I am by no means an Apple fanboy or give a... about electronic devices (cameras as well). Did you see that I also aded 'lovely looking device...' or you just saw 'mimic' and jumped off your seat.

My dilemma. Buy this lens and stay home. Use the lens money to travel to beautiful locations.

In reply to:

stratplaya: This is more a study of good post production work, rather than the lens.

And what's wrong with post production? Almost all digital creative production are finished in post. That's why we have finish artists, sound designers, video post production (colour grading etc.), and so on. Even, god forbid, film dark rooms where the second half of photography. So get over it! Post is part of almost any creative production except for instant polaroid maybe.

From all the latest reports it seems like soon Nikon WILL be a museum.

What would you expect from a Narcissistic generation? 'Just do It' just got a new meaning.

First you need to define who and what is a 'Pro'. The added word 'Pro' to products and services is part of a brand strategy which allows companies like Apple to sell products at a premium price without always a noticeable benefit. I agree that the Apple Pro 'trash can' is problematic but I know professional people that use these machine for hi-end broadcasting projects including complex animations and audio mixing and have no problems at all.
I work for a business with 500 people and we all use Apple products. I am no fan or give a s*** but I honestly prefer a 'trash can' or a useless touch-bar than using Windows OS all day.

Douglas F Watt: The endless chase for more and more detail and bigger and bigger MP is completely unabated. It is unclear where the point of diminishing returns might be on this, or have we passed it already?

This is not intended for general photography nor it is a chase. There are other industries that require large and dense sensors. Surveillance video cams and Astrophotography (sensors mounted on telescopes). For the rest of use mortals I agree, 18-24mp is enough for our selfies -)

Tonkotsu Ramen: I stopped buying new cameras because the tech is old and stagnant.. and the manufacturers seem to have no idea what consumers actually want.

Good on you Sigma. You've made a huge leap from a mediocre third part manufacturer to a top quality alternative.

Great shots. Well done. A lot of Mad Max theme here (especially Road Fury).

I like Canon but man, I will never go on holidays with all that heavy gear. I would love to see the same trip done by two or three photographers using FF, MFT and consumer APS-C. I bet you will barely see the difference.
