In reply to:

ScanSpeak: So is this a full frame sensor?

cirtapfotos - The OP was referring to a FF medium format sensor....not a 36x24mm FF sensor. In other words he was asking if it was truly a 645 sensor or if there is a crop factor. The answer is no, it is not a full 645 sensor and YES there is a crop factor.

In reply to:

StMal: i think a full frame can perform similar to this. please enlighten me how can this perform better. full frame cameras are more established with large selection of lens.

Your statement is no different then saying, 'I think an APS-C can perform similar to this'.

Once you figure that out you have your answer.

Digitalis32: As a user of hasselblad medium format cameras - be warned, batteries from hasselblad are typically very expensive.

You mean like $170 for a Leica M240 battery expensive??
If you can afford $9k you can afford the battery.

Clint Dunn: How hard is it for a camera manufacturer to produce decent sample images. I mean seriously....this is the release of the most significant product Hasselblad has put out in years and these are the 8 images they chose???

Yes Ming is a great photographer Hassy should have hired him to provide the samples....or any number of other great photographers who would have done it for free just to get their hands on the camera. In fact there has never been more (as in quantity) talented photographers as there is at this point in history yet this is what they provided.

I wish you were right...but you're not. A tonne of people actually believe the Earth is flat and even more people believe man never walked on the moon....Google it. There's some seriously dumb people on here but I'm not one of them...

ogl: The camera is Interesting to discuss, but the camera is useless for 99.9999% of users. :)

Why would you say that?? Using your argument I could say that a Nikon D7200 is useless for 99.99999% of users...

WirenL: I can't wait to see the samples gallery... no way will I ever be able to afford this, but it will be a nice way to dream.... This is what I had hoped mirrorless would eventually come to.

Wait 4 years and you will be able to buy a used one for $4k.....

In reply to:

windmillgolfer: I guess this will appeal to those with a specialist, professional interest but, as ogl has already commented. This is of academic/technology interest only to most.

Totally disagree. There are a tonne of people who will buy this camera. Most amateurs can't justify $20k medium format purchases but $9k is at a point where a lot of people will be willing to shell out the cash. Leica should be worried, the M and SL are in the same price range but here we have a camera from a top tier camera maker dropping a 50MP medium format rig for the same price.

eya1: Pricing is not much more than pro Canikon bodies and lenses but IQ is probably through the roof . Will this be a mirrorless game-changer? It will be interesting to see the long-term effect this technology has on the camera industry as a whole.

All I need is a whole lot of money; a whole lot of processing power and, a whole lotta Rosie!!!

@tkbslc - What are you talking about....the sensor is the same Sony unit as the one's used in cameras 3x the price. The quality is outstanding.

Yeah...obviously the Earth is round but there are a tonne of people who think it's flat!

Trust me, your assertion that man never went to the moon is just as ridiculous.

photomedium: Amazing how this top camera company after getting killed by cellphones, is unwilling or unable to implement a technology that has been routine for the last 10 years, and in a product that weighs ~1kg and costs $2k.

'Anyways, the car you drive is 1800's technology' - Holy overstatement batman. So, twin turbo, high pressure direct injection with aluminum block and heads is 1800's technology??? By the way....that's just from a Ford F-150 pickup truck.

@Stromaroma - 'I am heartened by the number of truthers posting here. I think that speaks to the scientific literacy and objectivity of people frequenting this site!'

Are you for real?? 'Scientific literacy and objectivity' is what makes fools like you think the moon landing never happened and the earth is flat??? Ok....

In reply to:

starwolfy: I am a full frame user and I think this lens is very interesting.

24mm with an equivalence of a f2.8 24x36 DOF + a F1.4 light gathering capability is quite interesting for group pictures in low light for example.

I have plenty of F1.4 lenses and thin DOF is always the issue. I usually prefer to go up to F2.8 even in low light because of the DOF issue making me almost never use F1.4.

I think that background blurring capabilities of bright lenses is so over rated. It ads nothing to the image but an empty blur and not context.

You're doing it wrong.

On article Apple Photos gets smarter in iOS 10, macOS 'Sierra' (61 comments in total)

I've been using Mac for 7 years now and to this day never use iPhoto. I tried it for 10 mins years ago and was turned off by the fact it doesn't allow you to determine your own folder structure. No, Apple...you do not know better than me how to organize my own workflow.

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Nice! The last one is too slick for me, but those folks swimming at Brighton Beach is a delight! Brighton would be a great place for a camera testing business; lots of contrast and dynamic range.

Ha! Yes, you are correct...didn't realize that the images above were cropped until you clicked on them...so I stand corrected.
As for the name of the photographer, it makes no difference to me...your work should stand alone without riding on the credentials of work gone by. Anyway...a great photographer does not necessarily equate to a great editor. A buddy of mine takes great photos but has a hard time deleting the trash.

Now that I see the bottom swimmer isn't left out of the composition I like the photo a little better, but still it doesn't do much for me, I certainly would never buy it.

villagranvicent: Looks pretty similar to the film set they use to film the moon landing.

Oh look, the 'Truther' nutjobs out in full force. Let me guess, you think the Earth is flat too.
