EdnaBambrick: I went crazy and bought all of things needed for 4k. Once I had it all, I went back to 1920x1080 and consider it future proof enough. The files are great and very easy to work with.

Totally agree. For 90% of consumers 1080P is good enough. 4K is good for everybody, 8K is just overkill IMO. For video purposes I would bet that less then .1% of the population would be viewing on a screen big enough to see the difference between 4K and 8K.

On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2558 comments in total)

Interesting that this new, state of the art sensor has worse dynamic range then the A7R2. I could care less about the 20fps the dynamic range is much more important to me.

You know it's funny....at work I used to provide all my technicians with cameras for taking pictures of jobs when they were done. Now I tell them just to use their cell phones because the quality is 'good enough'. This mentality is the same as 90% of camera purchasers, hence the drop in sales.

Of course as a photographer the phone quality is not enough to satisfy my personal needs but that is a different story.

dlb41: I expect my consumer camera to die if I bump it. The A9 will need military grade electronics to survive in the pro world. If some part of the A9's electronics fails, will the camera still be usable in a pinch?

dlb41 is stuck in 1972

rbach44: Can someone explain to me how this is a pro camera besides the fact that Sony's marketing says so? The feature set looks like a mid-level SLR with 20 FPS (with the right settings), an AF-ON button, and some autofocus tricks. How does that make it a pro camera anymore than say a D600?

The fact you had to ask means you're not a pro so don't worry about it.

steelhead3: How can a monitor show 130% of sRGB?

sRGB is a limited colour space. This monitor covers up to 95% of DCI-P3 which is a wider colour gamut then sRGB.

On article Dell announces 4K HDR10 monitor (88 comments in total)
In reply to:

CaPi: Interesting price point.. my first thought was "Where does the money go? Is there a PC somewhere hidden in it?"

@Greybalanced - A 65" LG OLED covers 99% DCI=P3 colour space, has support for HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG, and Advanced HDR by Technicolor. Oh yeah...it's also got a 65" screen and it's $4k vs $2k for this 27" Dell.

Long story short this Dell is way overpriced.

So....$2k for a 27" monitor or you can buy a brand new 65" LG OLED for $4k that covers 99% of the DCI-P3 colour space that also supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG, and Advanced HDR by Technicolor.

Seems to me that this Dell is WAY overpriced.

Jim Salvas: Why does everyone assume the majority of pro camera buyers are pros? My guess is that most of them are amateurs who would not have nearly this much trouble switching. If you're shooting your daughter's ballet performances, it may even seem cheap to switch to this (silent) and fast camera, while still looking like a pro.

Jackpot...ding, ding, ding!! I've been saying for years that the majority of Canikon Pro gear users are just wealthy amateurs.

Androole: No surprises there, I think Sony kind of yanked the rug out from under Fuji by discontinuing the old 16MP sensor that was the basis for both the X100T and the X70 a few months back.

The X100F was probably well underway already, but I imagine Fuji is a bit annoyed that they're going to need to iterate more quickly than expected on the X70 (or not, I guess - don't know what the market reception has been like).

@Elliot H - Yes it is which is why the 16mp sensor is discontinued. Feel free to put your head back in the sand.

24MP is the new 16MP....time to move on.

Angrymagpie: Gotta love that distinctive medium format look. You can immediately tell which photos were taken with the medium format cameras right away .... (Sarcasm)

Good for you, look at the money you'll save never having to buy a medium format camera!!

Well AF issues aside....the S line of lenses are widely know to be some of the top performing lenses ever made for any format. Carry on with your sarcasm though...

Many of the lenses are older then 5 years

In reply to:

Fujica: "Leica offers FREE fix for faulty AF ".
"In what Leica describes as an act of ‘goodwill’ "

Shouldn't this be normal practice... Especially for the price you need to pay for their products. Its called afterservice and taking care of your customers.

By describing it as 'goodwill' I think there is nothing wrong with calling:
Leica snobbish and arrogant.

If the product is out of warranty then it is 'good will'. Of course the product should not have been faulty to begin with...
