  • Replied in Fragmentation ?
    Hi Paul I guess that it's the same problem with hard drives : fragmentation. Thats' why it's recommanded to format your card with your camera instead of deleting your files. When there's enough ...
  • Thanks for the quote Alex ! That's exactly why I added in my post "It should be interesting to find out the difference between K-1 (with the expected* firmware upgrade) and K-1 II regarding AF-C ...
  • Let's hope Pentax's patent will soon be released for Dynamic Handheld Shift Resolution, in order to understand how to improve RawTherapee's algorithms to fully support this new feature! It's nice ...
  • Thanks for the link Alex ! Nice to see how they improved AF-C, at least with mathematical models instead of deep learning models, taking into account the focal lenght to restrain the AF margin in ...
  • Lots of place in the K-01. Maybe enough to put a small filter holder for APS-C? https://www.dpreview.com/news/3598665738/the-nisi-prosories-p1-kit-lets-you-attach-square-filters-to-your-smartphone ...
  • Replied in K1 2
    Thank you very much for these comments on your first test results Mike! Feel free to leave here comments about your ISO benchmark comparison with K1 and K1-2 when you have the opportunity: most of ...
  • Replied in Light Simulator
    Sorry Roland ! After all, my explanation wasn't as clear as I thought. It's not at all about replacing the DSLR AF system : it's only to get usefull data! :) It's all about preparation AND ...
  • Replied in What ?
    Hi Roland I get your point : I'll try to focus, even if it's not only on Pentax's AF. ;-) 1. Dynamic 3D Models acquisition (with Lytro's Camera system for example) : Every point in a limited space ...
  • Sorry but it's difficult for me to guess what words you tried to write in your last post. If I understand correctly : - Applied research project are part of the job in most industries and you have ...
  • I don't know if someone has already done something as mad as modelling a small animated 3D world just to calculate inputs for reproductibility and AF deep learning studies. It sounds good to me on ...
  • Sorry to bother you with the links. I was just trying to explain the backgound, not really related to photography and focusing problems indeed, rather about how huge works could result in small ...
  • Hi Ricardo Thanks for the comments. I'm just trying to figure out how one can improve data acquisition in order to feed neural networks at faster pace than what we've seen so far. Lots of whishes ...
  • We all heard about Google cars and other AI powered recognition systems (mostly based on statistics and algorithms that mimic neuronal/brain cells). To focus on your subject, you first have to ...
  • Google probably bought Lytro's patents. They did so with Nik Software for mobiles, and I'm glad they finally sold the remains to DXO ... Photo Labs improvements are really great with U-Points. ;-) ...
  • Real product ? I guess so, even if it doesn't sell so well. Fraud ? I think the market is not yet ready for such huge computing powers ... and the prices ... well. But renting such a system to feed ...
  • Hi Alex Sorry if I didn't make it clear enough : Lytro doesn't claim such a thing! I was just thinking out of the box, about another way for Pentax/Ricoh to use available technology to get useful ...
  • Lytro didn't work directly for autofocus improvements, but you should have a look at their Lytro Cinema. ;-) It's use of plenoptic is deeper than that : with some kind of enhanced high speed 3D ...
  • It's more about scene analysis, and artificial intelligence : I can still follow some people walking through a crowd with manual focus, when a fast and dumb AF will struggle jumping between every ...
  • Created discussion thread Lytro : Too late for Ricoh/Pentax ?
    Maybe a silly dream but I really hoped Pentax/Ricoh should make an agreement with Lytro to speedup and improve the AF algorithms some of us are complaining, before the recent Google's bargain : - ...
  • Replied in Evf and OVF
    Well done Zakaria ! And nice framing considering your sun's blindness. ;-) If you haven't tried it yet, you should find a good magnetic magnifying hood to put on your rear screen. With liveview you ...
