typical red channel "problem"

fuji seems to hold this better, bigger size or not.

focus shift in d810 vs. 645z shot.

On article Juggling with one hand: Leica M10 shooting experience (494 comments in total)

"If nothing else, I sincerely wish the M10 had some kind of horizon level guide. I swear I have one leg longer than the other."

Reason for this could be tilted optics in viewfinder (from my experiences from older, cheaper manual rangefinders). This shouldn't happen on Leica cameras from factory, bit maybe worth to check, i think it can be calibrated anyway.

"This sounds like very similar technology to what Sony is using in the recently announced Xperia XZs and XZ Premium devices which offer a 960 fps slow-motion mode at 720p resolution. However, SamMobile's sources claim Samsung is not using the Sony sensor in the S8."

why i get this feeling, that samsung could actually manufacturing sensors for sony..

superstar905: pfffff, who needs 1000 fps slowmo??? Rank in order of most desirable for those who care about their phone cameras, dual cam/quadruple FL cams is more necessary. Ability to have different FL is what these phones lack since putting an optical zoom would mean slower lenses..guess I won't be upgrading my S7 to the S8...perhaps the LG G6 will be my upgrade.

I wouldn't mind 1000fps in hd, can be fun making super slo-mo videos, and can come handy also for some research, science, engineering etc.
Add 3d laser scanning and ir camera and you're done.

WordsOfFarewell: 4GB RAM for Photoshop to chew on? I doubt that professional use is possible due to this. But I assume there will be at least a 8 if not 16GB version. But let's see what the market price will be.

i guess you're not talking about slim, portable winpad machine, are you?

there is also 8gb version with win 10 pro etc. but i guess it's not an apple product, to get whole tech attention..

On article iPhone 8 front camera rumored to capture 3D images (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zoom Zoom Zoom: Just a couple years ago 3D was all the rave. All movies were being released in 3D, all TVs were 3D capable, video projectors all 3D ready, some phones had dual 3D cameras and & glass-free 3D screens, Graphics Cards were all on the 3D spree, all high-end laptops w/dedicated GPUs were 3D ready, some laptops even had glass free 3D screens, handheld gaming consoles were getting 3D displays, camcorders were all getting 3D capabilities & dual lenses, still cameras were starting to get 3D interchangeable lenses..

BOOM! All has died quicker than any fad Ive witnessed to date. Its all so over, so nowhere-to-be-found-anymore, so dead & so buried.. its like.. well.. priceless:) The push of whole world for 3D & the speed it all gets killed is hysterical. Some new TVs even make the point they're NOT 3D capable anymore, thats how badly this is to be KILLED OFF!

NOW, Apple is talking 3D stuff? Now?..just to show you how late, retard & lethargic this innovation-less company has pathetically become.

As Lee mentioned, this technology captures 3d geometry, not just image. It was google beta project (tango) for years now (so, probably android wil come with this, too), but they kind of let it go in the wind, similiar with Microsoft.
Anyways, i 'm waiting this for long time, so maybe i could use it for measuring surveys of the buildings etc, but not sure ir based capturing is precise enough for that (would prefer laser scan base 3d capturing, like tango was).
Technology can be very useful, but as always, at thirst army has their exclusive righ on it, after that it's stupidity turn (pokemon hunting etc)

Olympus (my first digital camera was by them) know how to make usable cameras, that for sure. Sony should learn thing or two..

mr.izo: and still you can get 2 for price of one sony..

Maybe i should be more clear:
Yes, sigma makes some few primer lenses in sony e mount, which of course can be made in smaller size (again, how they could done that, while sony ones are bigger?), but there aren't any most desirable zooms/telezooms which are probably most desired ones (10-20, 17-50 for aps, 15-30, 24-70 for ff, 70-200 etc, by 2.8 if possible ). Here is where sony makes money on their (expensive) lenses and i'm sure, this is not just plain coincidence.
Yes, there are some negatives abou shorter flange distance, but how the hell for ex, can leica and others (zeiss etc) make souch great prime lenses in such a small footprint? What'y s problem to make af portrait lense (done already by others), why it have to be that big, like example in this article, This is silly and just excuse in direction: bigger lense, bigger money.
So, my point still stands and people screaming this for years now : overpriced, oversized and use of stupid by-wire (manual) zooming/focusing. Fix it.

Again, i'm talking in lens in general, not just canon. They wil be pushed to the ground, if sigma/tamron starts making af lenses in native e mount (and i can't understand why this hadn't happened allready).
I don't know what engeering are doing, but i think you aware of rangefinder lenses etc, right? Their sorter flange distance (which is used in sony e mount) can help much smaller diameter and distance of lens assembly, but what sony give us is lenses bigger and heavier than dslr siblings.

@Rubber: I think more than 90% audience here knows which lenses 'im talking about and which you can throw on Sony a series (not to mention second hand ones).
Sony maybe can make great lense lineup, but they're overpriced, oversized (if they always brag about small footprint of their slr cameras) and use stupid by-wire (manual) zooming/focusing, which only drain camera's already underpower battery. Period.
Sooner they will get it, sooner they maybe will sell something..

On article Hasselblad CEO Oosting to leave next week (164 comments in total)
In reply to:

fedway: Volvo has done better under Chinese corporate ownership than under American corporate or Swedish ownership. It seems the model has has been to keep R&D, product development, design, top management in Sweden while being financed by the Chinese parent with production in China and Europe. Hassy and DJI certainly have a Chinese/Swedish model to follow.

Yes, but Volvo is still doing what they doing best: making good, safe cars (at least with their car's section, which is owned by chinese, but they also makes trucks etc). With Hassy, i'm not sure, i hope that won't go Nokia or Ericsson rute. 'merica screw things after 2000's with their coorporate invasion in europe..
You can't run firms like this just looking to short time profits, Victor shure is restless in his grave..

dialstatic: Great video! Loved the dry humor (e.g. the parrot bit, and the comment about the 'Stark' improvement of Dubrovnik). And Gerta didn't hurt the video, either ;-)

As a newbie, I have to admit I sometimes don't understand the chisen settings. Such as in the doorway shots. I can see why you would open up completely (shallow DOF), but then why ISO 640 at 1/4000s? Surely lowering your ISO leads to better IQ and a stuff sufficiently high shutter speed?

"Sampling wine is a situation in which your hands tend to get less steady."

Not true at all, semi drunkenness can help stabilised camera, since you're more relaxed and gummy. And i'm serious here, have taken one of my best people pictures like in bad light, which i 'm 100% would be all over the place when sober, lol.

sh10453: Thank you for a nicely filmed/photographed, and produced video.
Greta's simplicity, beauty, and grace added a lot to the video.

The shot near the end, were she was laying on her back, with her hair spread over, is VERY TACKY, real cheap, and of very poor taste (on the side of the photo/video team), in my humble opinion. I am surprised the director would let it stay.
I have no doubt she did not ask to be photographed in that position on a concrete floor of an abandoned hotel.
Such a shot would be fine if the whole article was about a model being photographed in various poses and positions. It just doesn't fit in this video.

Anyway, if Gerta is still single, please tell her I'm interested :-)

@thematic: i think even she said it is a little bit tacky.
