On article Leica SL gallery update (216 comments in total)

Irakly Shanidze: Please do not treat my statement as a personal attack, even if you really tempted to, but this collection of images is truly awful. It does a huge disservice to Leica, as it strengthens the common stereotype of a Leica user as someone who can just afford an expensive toy and has no idea how to use it. Please, please remove this, my hair aches when I look at these images.

On article F is for '4th': Hands-on with Fujifilm X100F (424 comments in total)

It looks like a lot of the features people would like to see, wider, longer, faster lenses weather sealing, flip screen, are now on other models in Fuji's line up. and it makes more sense ro leave this model in this exact configuration, in a sweet spot of size, handling and retro aesthetic.
Fot what it is it's about spot on for me.

On article Woof! Sony a6500 sample images are here (364 comments in total)

Ok so quick look on a smartphone but, it's nailing the action, and that is the point right ? otherwise the 6000 will save you a metric shift ton of dosh with the same IQ.

This should be part of DPR's standard set of tests.

photo perzon: The light in those pictures is stage light. Poor setup to evaluate.

looks like a Sony set-up, I was thinking the opposite, hats off to them for providing something that is a challenge for the camera.

attomole: I haven't even seen an A6300 yet, There like rocking horse droppings as it is.

Show me more A6300's and it will make it appear at prices whereby I would take you up on that offer.

Given that the sensor is one of the best you can buy, stick a good lens on it and results should be as good as a D500 or close to, the rest of the specs have to be engineered to stop people buying it

I have seen it in youtube I have changed my mind I want one it's obviously brilliant I don't care how bad it works.

I don't quite get this mini medium format thing, from what I understand on equivilancy, the lenses available here will not capture more light than FF with the fast zooms an primes available for that format. Maybee Fuji think FF will crash on there high end APSC offerings.

On article Lensbaby Twist 60 real-world sample gallery (98 comments in total)

What ever your thoughts on the product, this is nice gallery showing what it can do.
If your a portrait photographer I can see that this would be a good lens for the bag, could save a lot of messing around on the computer.
It delivers on the effect, which seems suitably defuse and not overcooked and it looks sharp where needed

Hurrah! ! now the comments section can light up with "if it doesn't have 8K blah blah" type comments, it will be particularly hilarious if Pentax gets it first or last or in 3D or something. :-)

Oh no! Nikon you have made the focal length and the wrong aperture and the rendering will be all wrong and it costs to much. where is the VR ? and it doesn't fit Pentax. cont p.96

On article Medium-format mirrorless: Hasselblad unveils X1D (1179 comments in total)
In reply to:

GodSpeaks: To be honest, the big issue I have now with medium format, is that the sensor is not large enough, as they all fall far short of a full sized 645 frame.

These sensors are even smaller than the 36x48mm sensor (2xFF) I had in my Mamiya digital MF camera years ago.

Why is it that no one is offering a full 645 sized sensor?

Also the lenses, the high resolution, big diameter aperture, edge to edge, super corrected, non vignetting performance demanded these days is unlikely to be satisfied by simple Planar, Biotars and Tessar designs of roll film days, even 35mm fixed and modest focal length lenses are turning into optical behemoths, a 6X7 equivalent would likely be the size of a magnum of champagne

On article Medium-format mirrorless: Hasselblad unveils X1D (1179 comments in total)

I think they have done a great Job with packaging on this, the gains for medium format loosing the mirror box are bigger than 35mm, silly that others have not made this enginerring choice before (Pentax).

Like others, I am sceptical that given the ubiquitous DSLR has better, faster technology development, and better light gathering, fast lens options. This will struggle to find its place, but with some specialist focal plane adjustment lenses, a "super wide C" lens option, as a specialist studio and field camera, and it looks like it might even work as a street shooter. It might find its spot in the market none the less.

It does look a nice rig to use, it has an "I want one" appeal.

On article Facebook announces support for 360 degree photos (15 comments in total)

I don't get 360, it looks rubbish when wrapped onto standard flat dispayy, you waste a s!!!! ton of bandwidth on stuff of no interest like sky, feet, what's behind you, perspective is so mangled any sort of spatial awareness or depth perception is lost to the viewer.
360 why ?

attomole: I think the main thing with APSC is that even in indoor low light conditions without flash, the best examples will get some great results. @ ISO 3200 /6400 still has decent gradation through the shadows and some recovery of shadows is possible without getting a mosaic of coloured dots as soon as you lean on the adjustment, not possible with D200, D80 era cameras, the D7200 has a huge dynamic range, D500 looks like it will be same and maybe slightly better. In this regard the best Nikon APSC's are well ahead of the mFT's (sorry, I like the cameras). Sure, latest 5D's and D750 will do better but performance of the APSC covers all the bases, not so back in the day good "available" light photography was much improved by FF, now APSC has bridged that gap

would be interesting to see what they do withe D610 on refresh, I prefer to have the choice, but suspect it is there to disrupt Sony A7 series sales at the entry level. time will tell if an entry FF can sit at a lower price point than a high end professional grade APSC.
