On article 'Details matter': Ian Goode on visual storytelling (26 comments in total)

Photoshopping can be a real art. Something like this: http://www.floraborsi.com/.
It can also involve storytelling or strong narrative. For that you do check out the Time Travel series of the above lady.

From the horses mouth.

OK. I see now. You absolutely right. 18-35 can go FF (limited).

Tharaphita: Great news. As Nikon FX user i was searching for good pocketable camera, debating between Nikon J5 and Sony RX100III/IV and Pana LX100, Fuiji X100S.

But ill go for DL24-85 =)

RX100 is for all green shooters. Awful UI (and UX).

kadardr: Sigma just launched a mirrorless camera body for DSLR type lenses. Now that is possible and even looks great for me. They should launch one set with canon EF or Nikon F mount. Well if Canikon does not want to...

Me too.

Think about these as small size medium format (MF) cameras. The size reflects, that you need mass and size for stabilizing shake, and size only to have an "enormous" size battery for all that computation needs. I hope the APS H sensor can deal with 1600 ISO in color also and not BW only. I really would like to buy it, and even give up all DSLR photography.

I would put crop mode in the menu, and WB on the new top control dial. But that's personal.

arhmatic: If you are paying $3300 for this, then you can definitely add $249 for the TGA-1 thumb grip.

Recommend RRX BRX1 or the one like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-ebony-wood-steel-hand-grip-brown-for-Sony-RX1-R-camera-/311380117944?hash=item487fb389b8:g:CC0AAOSw7VBTw5tn

Sony RX1R II is not a FF point & shoot camera. It is NOT a replacement of or alternative to any Leica camera. This is a miniature MF class camera what you use to make large prints. You have to rig it up like with a RRS BRX1 and a good tripod etc etc. Not a point and shoot. 5 DS R class.

RGBCMYK: I don't think most people realize how much perspective distorts the face when shooting close up. Filling more of the frame for a tight head shot will not be all that flattering and makes most people wish they were never photographed from that close up. I wish everyone that ever posts a selfie with their cell phone filled the same amount of frame with a 85-105 on a full frame sensor and looked at them side by side.

It seems the ancient teaching about portrait lenses is true. Above 85 mm it is true portrait lens.

Rishi, your reference to different focal length shows that there is basically no change in the portraits proportions above 100-135 mm. Wide angle portraiture wants to or will tell more than the natural proportions of the face depending on the qualities of the photog.

In reply to:

kadardr: Why dont they put this sensor in a fixed lens rolleiflex like body. And in a rolleiflex like body you could get a soph PDAF installed (in the mirror chamber). Or in a fixed lens body with EVF but no mirror chamber, and a second lens only for the PDAF. I like a big sensor.

For me the real issue is that there is no medium sized sensor with on sensor PDAF, and MF cameras are bulky. A rangefinder style fixed lens MF camera can be smaller, and the fixed lens (plus the potential price of an MF camera allow for using a separate lens/PDAF combination for very fast and correct focusing in the MF domain (plus a relatively small camera if mirrorless). Twin lens reflex is inconvenient, and compromised, agree.

So many judgments without experience. So many claims about Ricoh GR superiority. It seems unavoidable to do a direct comparison review. Maybe this small market will grow if the number of contenders grow. Actually from a usage point of view the X70 looks better. Only IMO.

So many better ones for less (and for more also).
