On article 8K Helium Super 35mm sensor on the way from RED (86 comments in total)
In reply to:

Neez: I don't think they should use chemical elements in the name, unless it's involved in the manufacturing process or something. Do they use helium to make this sensor?? Otherwise, it doesn't seem right to call it the Helium Sensor.

Like if i were to call a car, the Toyota Propane vehicle, people would be all kinds of confused.

Other transgressions of the name Helium:
An indie rock band.
A music manager software program.
A travel case for your bicycle.
A sleeping bag (Marmot).
A rain jacket (Outdoor Research).
A smartphone (Archos).

And helium itself is named after the Greek personification of the sun. What about THAT?!

I'm glad it's so compact. It will fit in the glove box of my Veyron.

SolidMetal: I'm a photographer and yet I think that taking pictures totally detracts you from the actual event.

The "actual event" is a fiction. All you have access to is the experienced event. So experience it as best suits you -- photos or no photos.

I'm finding, for example, that drawing enhances my perception of the subjects I draw. So, perhaps likewise photography.

On article 2015 Roundups: Fixed Prime Lens Cameras (231 comments in total)
In reply to:

LarryLatchkey: I have to comment one more thing, as I find it quite frustrating: the GRs are not included in the current studio comparison tool.

Just shortly after it was tested (and the Nikon A) the studio scene was changed, yet there are models included in the current tool that are much older than the first APS-C-GR, such as the OMD-EM 5, Sigma DP1 Merrill, Pentax MX-1, or Nikon Coolpix P7700. Expecially seeing that the GR has become such a success, I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to be able to compare. In view of the claim of “poor high ISO image quality” – I must admit, the one picture in the gallery with the two ladies looks a bit disappointing for ISO1600, but then Nikon A wasn’t better. Would also be nice to know if Ricoh tweaked with the JPEG processing for the GR II.

Sure the GR is included in the comparison tool. Just go to some other recent camera (e.g., the Fuji X70), bring up the IQ page with the studio shot. Then you can bring up images from the GR II (same IQ as GR, I assume), and compare it's images with any other camera that's included there.

The new version is advertised as providing camera profiles, but what this really means is it provides a framework for installing your own camera profiles. I hope/wish/doubt there will be an exchange for sharing profiles with other users.

Your poll must be inspired by the early campaigning for the Republican presidential candidacy: No options of interest. :-(

morepix: "The zen of" is a long since worn out expression. You could have found a better headline for this little collection.

I like the low key images. The others are OK, but more everyday.

Make that MAINTENANCE. Isn't that something you do to render repair unnecessary? But where's the zen?

You guys can't read. See "What we don't like" on p. 3 of the review. It's the DPR way of saying things. Cheez ...
