KodaChrome25: Washing machines have batteries?

Good one, but in fact my fridge have one (small, but it keeps temp settings when power outage occurs) :)

"customized Nikon KeyMission 360s". Hope this customization will bring better than soft VGA results wihout heavly distorted and smugged corners like "civil" kemyssions have.

OlyPent: Canonians are lucky. The m4/3rds versions of the same focal length lens, not even supporting FF obviously is $100 more and in the case of the Olympus, slower on the long end.

Please stop comparing these tiny sensors cameras (having stupid image ratio) with real ones.

PhotoRotterdam: bokeh is a lot nicer than the Tamron equivalent.

Not true.

Bruno E: According to German article on https://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Panasonic-GH5-Mit-6k-Serienbildern-und-neuem-Sensor-3587501.html another benefit for the EU market is, that there's no 30min limit for video recordings anymore.

30min? Who cares as included acu probably die after 10 minutes with high bitrate video recording...

Avian2016: A shocking image of the polar bear. At the same time a good reminder what we humans do wrong against the nature.

Yeah, humans are probably responsible for killing of all living dinosaurs in the past. Natural selection and periodic climate changes are definitely a human fault.

Christian Unger: maybe it's also because photography enthusiasts have moved on to other, more modern photo sharing websites.

Yes but Instagram was exclusive for iphones long period of time, So I'd not count it as relible source of camera popularity ;)

sapporodan: Only 3% for mirrorless, did not realize it was so low!

You can't cheat ergonomics. If mirrorless has "proper" (for most people) size and grip has 0 advantage over DSLR. Smaller mirrorless cameras has such bad egronomics that are not even cosidered useful. Add to this picture really poor battery life and you have this 3%.

mpgxsvcd: Time to cancel that GoPro plus membership. I am not sure they will be around long enough to take advantage of it.

I think this company is now doomed. Karma is k.o. and GoPro5 is nothing new. Also it seems people are now bored with all action stuff, because all action clips look the same. Now it's 360 video time, but so far quality is not there. Come on GoPro, where is your 360 cam attempt?

On article Ultimate OM-D: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Review (1300 comments in total)
In reply to:

BruceB609: Taking the original E-M1 out of production and introducing the E-M1 II for twice the price and performance leaves me sensing some kind of void. The Mark II is a very different camera for a different and extensive use, a pure overload for me though very impressive. There are focusing improvements I'd welcome but if they had to change things this much, why not just a new 4K model series along with an updated but consistently designed E-M1 for conventional stills work with a more E-M1 like price? I suppose it takes a lot to improve on an E-M1, you know, like removing a tilt display and accessory port for a VF4 amongst other things.

"System is pretty much complete (camera side)"
Complete? It lacks a sensor in it, oh well it has some kind of...

ART performance indeed....

I understand that, but how you explain first plane (upper left corner) is sharp then second plane is soft then tower is half sharp, then again infinity is not sharp, all @f=8 and 12mm. ART lens indeed...

In reply to:

raindance: Just a casual observation, the Sony samples are pretty bad. I still don't understand the Sony obsession on dpreview, the image quality is meh.

Outside of that, the lens looks like a winner. I really love the Art series, albeit these days I have reverted back to OEM optics.

Mikael, he he lost like most of people on this world, who just ignores Sony cameras. I don't know why, maybe because it really procuces inferior and overpriced products or maybe they don't feel ok with their cameras. Maybe they remember that Sony is not stable with thieir mounts suport. Personally I hate Sony for bashing F707/717/828/R1 lineup and never buy anything from them because of that.
Stats (at least in Europe) are really bad for Sony:

AshMills: I would love to see an AB comparison of these two lenses side by side, Hi-Res mode on an Em5Mk2 vs SonyA7RII , both wide open and stopped down to really see the difference.

Yes, but it'll get opposite effect regarding lens main purpose: landscapes&astro

On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707 (137 comments in total)

I enjoyed both 717 and DSC-R1, which I still have and use. Image quality (yes image quality) of large sensor R1 is still very good and camera design is wonderfull (includng Canon-like wheel). All old Sony cameras including 707 (famous red)/717 and R1 had something special about color rendering - which is now treated as a fault. To me current cameras are boring color wise (maybe besides Fuji and Sigma Merills). Companies now want to have most accurate colors out of camras which (sadly) is not what photography is about :(

Gesture: Where is the word "Nikon"?
To its credit, I think Nikon has done well with its, dare I say, "affordable" full frame cameras.

So what if nobody wants to rent it?

In reply to:

D135ima: The most important question - is the quality of image at the long end. As well as the stability and reliability from instance to instance. In cheap telephoto lenses these are the most weak points. If all is well on these questions - everything else can be forgiven, including f/6.3 and 400$

"surprisingly sharp at 300mm/F8"? Do know lens that is NOT sharp @f=8??? Then it's a toy not a lens, sorry. Even havily used 100$ Sigma DG is sharp @300m/f8

In reply to:

Retro1976: I don't know why there is so much hype over the Sony A series bodies and lenses. Look at these samples: The rich color, skin tones, contrast and detail - the images are lovely, superb. Sony doesn't come close to Canon in this regard, and yet time and time again people talk about the superiority of Sony sensors, yet my eyes don't see it.

Fully agree, even converted via ACR/LR, colors from Canon are easier to handle and it's easier to achieve taste we like than form Sony sensors (especialy programmed by Nikon). But A7RII is tempting not because of colors, but all other stuff Sony packed in that body.
