On article Lensbaby Burnside 35: sample gallery and impressions (66 comments in total)

I like what it does, not overcooked acceptably sharp in the middle, I can see where this lens would make sense, for a pro doing Family pics and possibly wedding personal event photography, 500 bucks on a lens for the odd picture in a set where doing / driving busness might be time better spent than messing around in PS

Sony must be astonished that they are on generation 3 of a device that is bound to be the future of mid to high end photography andy no other manufacturer has credibly reacted.

David610: Size mismatch. Huge/heavy lenses for small/light camera. Not exactly for hiking. Those 35mm, 50mm and 85mm were really needed. Tokina's 20mm f/2 FIrin AF makes more sense to me.

There are some smaller slower lenses available as well allready and zooms if you want to reduce your packing for travel.

Sony must be amazed that they are on thier 3rd génération of this type of (full frame ) camera which is quite obviously the future for pro and high end DSLR users, with no competition whatsoever.

Wil Helm: This is like a longtime explosure of a moth flying under a streetlight. You dont see a detailed Image of the insect, but a vague cloud of the flight paths it took during the Exposition Time. Is it a real Photography? Its a very blurred photography, but it is a photography.

Is I understnd the Ion trap creates a stable orbit based on electrostatic RF and DC fields, without knowing the specifics of the device I would expect that the ion is oscillating in space constrained by the electrostatic “force field “ the image in a sense is like a time exposure of a car driving around a trafic roundabout at night with the headlights on, taken from from space.

In reply to:

Kwick1: The lack of an exposure compensation dial is a deal-breaker for me. And a bigger grip, extra weight, but no larger battery? Why? Missed opportunity, in my opinion.

The exposure compensation is clearly displayed on the top plate and there are a couple of dials, so the lack of a dedicated dial for this does not seem a great loss particularly working with an electronic viewfinder.

Makes a compelling case for DSLR purchase, particularly with third party alternatives from Tamron, for the sort of photographers likely to buy a Fuji, this is to expensive

Given the reach of social media this days and the high profile of the victims on it. Its’s the hottest stolen photographic gear in history

Nailed it Leica,
What is the rest of this industry thinking to miss this.
It will take Canon years of research to catch up on this upgrade, i'm not sure Nikon with ever recover

Sony A7 III and Nikon 850 kick it out of the park, Sony shows us the future though, Fuji is my favorite hopefully the format will find some traction but I don't think it will as the sensor is not quite big enough to put clear water above the most developed full frame, and slightly bigger lenses means much bigger prices particularly chasing fast full frame F stop equivalency

More tricky this one, Sony filling out their lens range to fill obvious gaps, Tamron and Sigma poaching CaNikon sales by refining the classics, Fuji's buffing their line of oh so sharp but not quite equivalent lenses.

On article Gear of the Year 2017 - Richard's choice: Sony NP-FZ100 (246 comments in total)

If the gear of the year is a battery then the photo gear industry is not exactly kicking it out of the park with innovation in 2017
If the gear of the year is a battery then the photo gear industry is not exactly understanding what customers are expecting when using its products.
I agree the photo gear of the year is a battery.

eya1: Without the background stories, it's just a decent pic of a young man standing by the sea, a young woman peering through a window (maybe in a bus, perhaps it was raining, maybe the bus had just got washed in the depo...), and a grab shot of a mannequin.

But they have backstories

I won’t buy any, although I got through a few rolls back in the day, It was good in its time but things have moved on. I miss doing black and white print, not enough to resurrect the darkroom. which is full of hassle. but colour slides not so much, not interactive and crafty like print, you send the roll away and slides come back, you project across the room to bore your neghbours with over long presentation of your family expeditions.

A choice indicative of the case that therefore is no Camera of the year, Love Leica but it’s classic 50’s design and functionality can hardly be the significant photographic tool of the year, particularly say verses the latest Samsung and Apple devices. which i would see as the modern equivilant in terms of the impact. (and today they are evolutionary)

This year if not the Sony A9 it’s only a better A7 after all, there is no camera of the year.

travelguymiami: someone convince me that all the human energy that went into making this $63,000 camera was best spent making that camera instead of....idk, feeding 10,000 starving children?

Smug achademics, somone convince me why we pay $100k per year for such. Wouldn’t we be better spending that saving say 10,000+ starving children
