FlyinDoc: The E-mount lens line up will surely be complete by Tokyo Olympics 2020, with an A9M2 released just prior. At the rate of Sony's improvements, we can surely expect the few weaknesses of the A9 to be ironed out by then.

That is their dream: to have pros use their mirrorless cameras at the Olympics. If the Pro Support is up there with Canon and Nikon, I can see it happening.

If I'm a paid photographer covering for Olympics, I'd still stick to canon/nikon even if I have the A9. I reckon photographers would be nervous with a non-canikon. Or he'd be bringing alongside his canikon as backup

jim seekers: Ok just seen still's and video comparison's between the one plus 5 and Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 is miles better at capturing detail, The Camera on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S8 will be better than the One Plus 5.
Tiny Little Sensor and 20 Million Pixels, Far Too Many, I was not impressed at fine detail being very smudged while the Galaxy S8 resolved it easily and the S7 will do the same.
go on to YouTube and type in OnePlus 5 Vs Samsung Galaxy S8 Camera Comparison.

Even galaxy s6 is pretty good

pkcpga: I wish Olympus would come out with a m4/3 or 1" sensor rugged camera, something Sony rx100 sized but durable and waterproof.

katastrofa: It's an old practice in art curatorship to gather together works of art made by artists with a similar background. E.g. "Paintings by XVIth Century Italian Masters". Or "Photographs by Black Women". Somehow, some people are OK with the first but howl with outrage at the second. One wonders, why?

Meaning it's an invalid comparison

On article Through the lens of black women photographers (203 comments in total)

The title seems to put emphasis on race. It equates to "these photos can only be taken by a black woman", not white or japanese etc...

Change black to any other colour, or woman to male - it will still sound controversial.

I'm only focusing on the title, not the intent of the editor

Italian masters refers to nationality.

Impulses: Nicely produced clip... They had Ethernet in the delivery room in '97 tho? Lucky him, I didn't escape 56K until I graduated and went off to college in 2000, also the year I got my first digicam, Kodak DC290... Still the most expensive too.

Mobile internet in 97? Was it gprs? Malaysia had them much later

In reply to:

jgreenlees: Did you not experience a whirring sound made by the autofocus while shooting video? I can't hear it on the video so I assume you used an external mic?

I just bought a GX850 and can only shoot video in manual focus because the noise of the autofocus on the other three focus options render the video useless without an external mic. Unless the one I bought has a defect?

Would be very interested to hear your thoughts,

noise from the lens motor I assume?

In reply to:

windmillgolfer: Excellent imagery. Food for thought on the application of time lapse, though I'll stick with my Panasonic 7-14mm and Samyang 7.5mm fisheye on M43 ;-)

7.5mm samyang is one near perfect lens. And so tiny compared to apsc version

Dear Great Leader, please reverse engineer the firmware and release it to the public.

On article Throwback Thursday: The Canon PowerShot G3 (94 comments in total)
In reply to:

DougE21st: I owe the G3 a lot. When Canon announced the G3, the price of the G2 was cut in half. I grabbed a G2 as my 1st digital camera. While I continued to use my Nikons (F3 & FM2N) for most of my photography, the G2 slowly worked its way into being my everyday camera. Other than having the world slowest autofocus & start-up times, it was a great camera. I still have it & (occasionally) dust it off & shoot good pictures. I still have the 128MB (yes, MB - not GB) CF card I paid a hell of a lot for...

I remembered a 4MB CF card costing $150

On article Hasselblad knocks 30% off price of the H6D-50c (30 comments in total)
In reply to:

zzzxtreme: let's revisit Amazon reviews of H6D !

ahhhh. H5D has more reviews! check them out

"It was a little more expensive than my iPhone S7, but I figured that I'd might as well fork over a bit more cash for that creamy background blur- bukkake I believe is its name?

From what I can tell, it takes better photos than my S7.

Again, based off the price, I thought it would be a relatively versatile camera. So instead of paying for a GoPro, I strapped it to my head and used its intervalometer to take shots every once in a while. I tried to take underwater photos with it, but it turned out to not be waterproof.

I'm sticking with the GoPro next time. Waste of space."

mikey fried: I have a macbook pro and had to install windows 10 via bootcamp to run some software ( - so basically it works as a windows 10 pc). I've actually come to realise that it is so much faster running as a pc and windows 10 seems so refreshing and innovative compared the the tired old mac updates. Much more powerful pc options out there for considerably less money - so no more macs for me.

I thought I was the only one who thinks windows is faster than macs. in my office, there are couple of macs. Air, Pro etc..
