On article Leica TL2 sample gallery (57 comments in total)

What is happening with the barrell-distortion of the 35mm in the last images (acr vs ooc) ? Preproduction issues?

Mr Peter Nicolay,

I dare you on behalf of your entire city:

I'll transport myself to your village, you will pay for my stay and local expenses, and arrange local subjects of beauty available - be it happy kids, smiling women, local archictecture, natural scenery or proud craftmanship alike. I promise that within a week, I can make no less than fifty fully indifferent - or even ugly - images of your town, its people and its surroundings (with proper access and permits).

Should one or more images happen to be slightly likeable (as judged by inhabitants outside the areas in question), this will not void the challenge as long as the former statement is adhered to.

How hard can it possibly be ?

(Sorry, no humor folks, no looks, no laughing-around-corners or whatever, and certainly no thoughts as mentioned below. Not at all)

Regarding the G7XII: "An additional bonus is above-average battery life for cameras of this size and class[...]." At 0:55 in the video, it is critized for "short battery life" ?

How can the spring save energy? Isn't the spared energy in the returning direction spent by the extra effort to also push the coil back?

xpanded: Dear Sigma - congratulations with this amazing launch. Quite surprised you managed both so quickly.

Now please hire 2 software guys (m/f) - one skilled tester and one skilled bug fixer. Do not add additional features to the software - do not work to make it faster - only focus on making it 100% stable. No more strange error messages. SSP remains the biggest hindrance for bigger sales.

And yes, I do own Sigma cameras (currently 5) and I would buy this in a heartbeat if the raw converter was fixed once and for all.

The only way I can crash SPP is by deleting raw files from within SPP, or from the filesystem when the SPP-browser is pointing to the directory.
Sometimes, from 6.3.0 and on, the forth/back arrows become inactive, reason unknown.

So removing the garbage-bin icon from the menu would solve most of my SPP-problems, speed and dark texts aside.

Nukunukoo: Don't own a Sigma Foveon but tried one months back. When looking at how it resolves edges and the details, I was gobsmacked. Especially on post. It's exactly like resizing a Bayer image to a little over 1/3 its size. My only niggle was its performance in low light.

Enter the 630EF :-)

Hopefully we will see Panasonic implement this in their new photo and video cameras in the future.

Zeus? Global shutters are Chronos' turf.

Horshack: Very nice interface. I like how it remembers that you're viewing 1:1 so that if you click another photo in the gallery it'll load the full-sized version of that one too. Have you considered using progressive JPEGs for the 1:1?

@Shih: Safari, on 10.10.4. The RX100 IV works in 1:1, so does Tough and 5DS.
I googled this image: http://keyassets.timeincuk.net/inspirewp/live/wp-content/uploads/sites/12/2015/08/DSC00862.jpg
It gets broken into rectangles and shows like a puzzle when viewed directly in 1:1 but fine minimized. Fun fact is that those rectangles now also appear in the DPR viewer (that was otherwise blank), still open in a separate tab. My guess is Apple didn't expect safari to be used with large images.

I cannot see the α II R images at 1:1 - after the animated wait icon stops, I just have a black screen (OSX, uptodate flash).

Hmmm ..... "Nikon to offer free newlywed portraits at New York's City Hall next week" (-:

Can I deduce from the headline that some marriages in NY are arranged against the couples will?
Or that Nikon has introduced a brand new feature in a forthcoming camera? (all my portraits are either single or continuous, never married ... although some are framed).

In reply to:

Diopter: some low-rider cars have license plates with the LED pulsing lights. Is it a source of inspiration for Pentax?

Nah, the other way round: Those pulsing lights are from the rear camera. Pentax/Ricoh is leveraging sales by selling the camera separately.

On article Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review (2257 comments in total)

If Leica guaranteed some kind of forward support for new sensors/electronics in the same body say every second or third year, I think many more could be tempted, knowing they would have a classic that could keep up. (If not otherwise, then by offering a high return price when buying the successor.)

But first they need to finish the camera. That pop-up flash and to some extent the card-door leads me to believe top-management is not entirely german. One-piece aluminium or no deal.

And lenses to match, thank you. Black looks weird here.
