Amazing footages. But I would have ended it at 3:00 for maximum impact. Cut the rest into another film if you must.

Big Sun Photography: Question to Anyone:
What advantage does this have over simply using a speedlight?

With a guide number of 48 which equates to even most cheap speedlights in the $100 range it's not producing any more light.

At five seconds for recovery, it's slower than any speedlight I have (even my cheap'o Yongunuo).

And it's still five times heavier and larger than a speedlight...

I fail to see any advantage here.

I had this light.

First you gotta remember that it's not very useful comparing GN between strobe and speedlight. It's best to compare them inside a softbox. In practice it's a bit more powerful than a Yongnuo 560.

Its strengths are: more efficient and even in a light modifier, can be used with many Bowen modifiers, more shots per charge, can be used in semi-barebulb mode. Anyway it's an ok strobe to learn on, I eventually upgraded to more powerful portable ones.

techmine: Ambitious project. As of now, their flagship Nexus 5 is plagued with multiple issues around the camera. As I own one, I can confirm that the autofocus is painfully slow (slower than iPhone 3Gs that I acquired in 2009). Its impossible to take photos indoors. Videos have all sorts of noise/hiss. I just hope that there is a big firmware waiting to fix these issues before we jump into the RAW world.

Manual focus would be interesting.

Great techs, but the commercial made me cringe.

This article has nothing to do with photography. Why should photographers care about the sale figures of certain phones?

tinternaut: "Areas of fine green detail can be 'mushy'"

Have our intrepid reviewers yet determined if this is an issue with the X-Trans design, or if it is merely software?

Nope. It's the sensor. Even JPEGs have mushy greenery.

Relax, I was being sarcastic.

Pretty good video for an obscure metal band.

jcmarfilph: Then I am sure had this been taken with an iPhone, it will be posted there on the header in all glory. =D

That's quite true. "NASA uses Apple iPhones to snap photos of Earth".

My Pixma died just after the warranty expired. Never buy from Canon again.
