On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)
In reply to:

WGVanDyck: This is essentially a photo and image site and I find dark grey to black backgrounds work best for that type of content. One of the reasons I like DPR over that other site.

Exactly!

Tried it. Eyes hurt. Back to black.

I assume, lower DR is an inevitable trade-off for the better high ISO performance.
D5 is 2 fat stops better than Canon 1Dx.

OK, soon we won't need to move files on PC.

Much better than 70D, but still well behind Nikon D7200.

Sean65: It's now got to the stage that it is cheaper to buy a new printer than to replace ink cartridges when they run out. Never seen such a rip off market in my life. Ink is more expensive than gold.

There are lots of DIY solutions for that.

I wonder how small play in all these complex paths will affect the sharpness of the image.

On article CP+ 2016: Hands-on with Tamron's new SP prime lenses (101 comments in total)
In reply to:

ybizzle: Both Tamron and Sigma have raised their game and lens quality which rival or beat the same offerings from Canon or Nikon. Bravo!

@Jorge Bayonas
my rule - (at least) 1/30 or (better) 1/60 for people, so IS is welcome on 85mm lense. Other questions are price, weight, reliability and durability.

In reply to:

TheEmrys: So, no VC for Sony, nor a TAP-in.... Sony sure isn't getting much for their investment in Tamron.

IBIS is never as effective as OIS, so if I had Sony, I'd like to have OIS on some lenses.

I can only imagine those massive barrel distorsions of Pana lens, and I'm already scared.

do it 50-150 f/2 or f/2.8, as it was before.

On article Sigma 20mm F1.4 'Art' lens real-world sample gallery (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tony Lau: I wonder how it will compare to Nikon 20mm f1.8g @f1.8 or slower, since the nikon only slightlyless in stop and much less in size and weight. unless some one specifically need f1.4, I find f1.8 is much easier to use and suffcient, if the quality is right.

according to dxo, T-stop of Nikon lenses is quite darker than F-stop.

On article Nikon 24-70mm F2.8 ED VR real-world sample gallery (111 comments in total)

It seems that Canon has the most _clever_ lens design approach.
Its sharpness is flat over the whole image at the wide angle and more centered at the tele end. Which is good for both landscapes and portraits.
Tamron is the opposite. Which is stupid for landscapes as well as portraits.
Nikon is "flat" at wide and tele, but with a tradeoff of center/average sharpness.

tongki: and still have to change the batteries ???
no wire connections for battery charging ???

Are you a historian or what?
1) molded in contacts mean molded-in mini-usb port or special pins. Special pins mean adapter. Mini-usb port means:
- have fun drying those tiny holes after emerging in the water.
This would be prohibited by any tech. standard in all countries in the world. Because user can connect wet contacts to the car or 110/220V net.
- have fun cleaning those contacts and holes after emerging into saulty water
2) those pins must be done inside of the frame, so that you don't hook everything. That means even more troubles with drying + much more complicated body + much less robust body + 1cm of space
3) the usb port is on the side of the GoPro. So electric connection would need a bendable cable inside. Tat means at least another 1,5cm of space inside.

All in all, this body would be so big and cost so much, that the demand would be vanishingly small.

Otherwise drill a hole in front of mini-usb port and plug a power supply.
There are enough car usb chargers on the market and long usb to mini-usb cables.
There are also enough of "opened" GoPro holders with access to all buttons and ports. For single body as well as for a body with a LCD back screen.

I would say not narcissic, but simply dangerous. People start doing stupid things when their GoPro is ON.

If you want to have a sealed body - no. Otherwise drill a hole in front of mini-usb port and plug a power supply.

On article Nikon D810A added to studio test scene comparison (26 comments in total)
In reply to:

ZAnton: Wow, well done Nikon!
Significantly better than normal 810 and Canon 5 DS R

Yes, I meant noise performance.
Nowadays noise performance is barely visible and pixel peepers start splitting hairs. 810A has a clear advantage over 810 and other cameras (wich comparable resolution)
