On article Does sensor size still make a difference? (1071 comments in total)
In reply to:

stevevelvia50: I made a direct comparison between my EM 1 Mark ll, with 12-100 and my friends 16-35 f2.8 and 24-105 L, Canon 6 D, mirror up, with the same relative aperature settings, and both at iso 200. Both cameras are 20 mps. There is no decernable difference when viewed on my 4K moniter between the two images at as high as 200%! they are basically identical Now the iso is relatively low, and I was shooting in average daylight, some sunny contrast, and some overcast, but I was more interested in of there was any visible difference, or a feel to one format over the other. For hand holding, the EM 1 Mark ll will be a clear winner, as I can get truely tripod sharp images a low a speed as 1/4 second quite easily, sometimes lower, also better dof for overall sharpness. Canon will most likely be a clear winner with astrophotography, different strengths.

@Per: Is a 1 meter enlargement not enough? ;-)

solarider: Hey, everyone at DPR, great photos, I'm noticing some white rings in the little lady's right and left iris, Is this from the lens, the lighting/reflections or something within her eyes or contact lenses ? thanks

That's the word I was searching for! :-D

On article Panasonic S1 and S1R: What we know so far (892 comments in total)

I'm a little worried that Panasonic is going in that direction. Because it may mean that mFT will experience less development as a result. It could even lead to mFT disappearing completely.
Since the camera market is unfortunately still shrinking, it is understandable that Panasonic is now trying to get into higher-priced segments.
I would miss mFT a lot, because for me it is the "golden mean" between smartphone cameras and "heavy devices". I.m.o. hardly any amateur photographer and even only few professional photographers would have to lug around heavy KB equipment if they chose a system without bias.

You are all wrong! This is a flaw in Canons mirrorless line-up. It is called "iris banding". Happens with certain people, esp. when they are family members.

Good colors and sharpness. Noise looks also quite controlled. And apart from that "P1000" is a much cooler name than "Z7"... ;-)

On article Polarr Deep Crop app crops your images like a pro (58 comments in total)

A.I. is the biggest buzzword these days, but most applications I tried were either totally useless or mediocre at best. There is still a lot of improvement necessary and sooner or later it will be there.
The first photo in the article is a good example for what I mean: All crops are totally useless. The second is mediocre.
Still, I am absolutely sure they will make money with it...

realmadeira: I am in EU and because of VAT I never bought anything from official sale channels anyway. All my stuff was bought pre-owned and or new through dodgy Ebay resellers at 20-30% off. Well worth it even if in the unlikely event of repair need I can always unload the gear on Ebay in "as is" condition

@realmadeira: What do you mean with "as is"? Broken condition without telling the potential buyer? That would be fraudulent.

M Lammerse: I'm not a Fuji user but those JPEGs straight out of the camera (in combination with the 'film' simulations) are looking outstanding.

I am not so sure about this:
Skin tones in the shade show a strong magenta cast. For example look a the little girl with the pretty smile on page 2, or the first pic of a lady in the gallery.
Though it is hard to tell whether this is the camera's fault or just the ambient light.

In reply to:

Michael_13: Nice portrait and great skin tones.
But DOF @F2.0 is not enough for my taste: Only her eyes are in focus, eyebrows are not. This is one of the reasons why I do not really want FF.

Not a limited use-case for me. I often take pics of family members indoors with exactly these restrictions. So do many other hobbyists. Another big plus for me is size and weight.
In terms of absolute pixel quality, I agree with you, though.

@Rishi: Yes, but esp. with "little people" longer exposure does not work. I'm sure you have this problem with your child, too.
@maratus: I often need more DOF than less. Your needs may be different.
@Quang: I'd like to have her face in focus. I guess F4, maybe even F5.6 would have been necessary for it.

Of course you can stop down... and quickly lose the noise advantage vs. APS-C/MFT. So why carry a heavy FF in the first place?
I would only use FF if I needed the megapixels. Luckily, I don't.
All I want to say is: FF is not the best solution for everyone.

In reply to:

scokill: The perspective distortion is very unattractive. I know it's a sample photo, but nonetheless it's there.

@Rishi: Sorry for correcting you, but i.m.o. in this case it is mainly the height of the camera that makes the distortion. This lady is probably a bit shorter than the one from pic 6 and she leaned a little forward. This results in the typical "v-shape" distortion with a large head and small shoulders. Her facial expression doesn't help either and makes the portrait look comical to me. But who cares, it is a test shot, after all. ;-)

Beautiful smile!
The skin tones look a little red to me... but could be due to the overcast sky.

Jhaakas: At this price, there is NO IBIS and has a croped sensor,... what is the incentive to buy this when with 20% more u can get a FF !

@Jhaakas: FF? Who needs this? MF is the way to go.

nerd2: Its absurd that there still are people who believe aps lenses are lighter.

Fuji 23mm 1.4 (35mm f2 equiv.): 301g, $899
Fuji 56mm 1.2 (85mm f1.8 equiv) :405g, $999

Canon rf 35mm f1.8 IS: 305g, $499
Sony fe 85mm 1.8 : 371g, $548

The truth is FF lenses are just as portable and much cheaper than equivalent aps specific ones.

@nerd2: No, you simply fell into the equivalence trap...
The speed of a lens is much more important for most photographs than its DOF.

LChen: Is the eye AF in AF-C on par with a7iii? I don't mean for sports, but just for my four-year-old kid running randomly in the park.

This is where MFT has an advantage: You can use F2.0 for speed and still have enough DOF so that the face is in good focus - with a little tap on the screen.

The other possibility is to set up traps: A little bowl of sweets will stop even the fastest kids. :-)

In reply to:

Sir 7: Fuji, please please PLEASE make an FF body!

Why would they? The difference between APS-C and FF in image quality is negligible and the market for FF is getting crowded.
If you really need/want more i.q. then you should buy the GFX50s or wait for the GFX50r.

In reply to:

RMGoodLight: I like the colors of the new EOS R. But the 1/800s and ISO2500 prove that even this new camera does not contain the magic to make everyone a better photographer. 1/160s would have been enough and would have lowered the ISO significantly. A small issue that happened to me more than once but ruins your shots. The little screen on the top plate of the R showing the settings should have helped here...

No, I bet he chose 2500 on purpose.

tribpc: the color looks nice. Is it SOOC jpg ?

I think it is. I like the colors, too, but don't like the lack of sharpness and DOF.
