On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1 (112 comments in total)
In reply to:

dmanthree: I was disappointed when this came out. What I really wanted was an updated 828 with IS and a fix for the purple fringing. Oh, and a little less noise, too. 828 was a noise monster.

They also dropped the laser-assist focusing, and the IR function. And didn't they drop the flip up flash, as well? I liked the ergonomics of the 828, but the R1 left me dry. Slow, too.

Damn, I'd love one of these.

Fixx: I could trade my Mamiya 7 for this.

Wouldn't you love a digital Mamiya 7 II? With a 6x7 sensor? You might need a second mortgage, though.

UrrutiaPhoto: It sure is a sexy camera. I hope this is a glimpse into the future of camera design.

Maybe. Kind of looks like a big Panny GX8.

Dodi73: I honestly think that keeping the 95mm front lens, an optic within the 350/420 range, close to f/4, would be more compact and welcome for many people who don't shoot birds.

Well, there is a Sigma 500 f4 on the way.

Arizona Sunset: That must be the largest female model hand ever.

Yeah, the scale is way out of whack. Are the specs available for this lens?

On photo Smokestacks in the Your City - Bricks challenge (2 comments in total)

These stacks were part of one of the many textile (former) mills along the Merrimack river in Lawrence, MA (USA). The mills shut down long ago, and the building's repurposed. These massive stacks, with most of the others, were torn down since they were bound to fall down on their own. I shot this without knowing they'd be torn down.

Man, there's so much to like in this shot! The eye contact with the guy in the middle, the flip-flops, the dog, the rabbit (I think), and the guy who smokes a cigar and cigarette at the same time.

No 4K, no time lapse, no AF adjust, this really does have the training wheels bolted on. No worries. Just not for me.

No, he was jamming an APS-C cam, so the equivilant plunge for FF would have been 2933.33'. The m4/3 plunge would have been twice that, or 5866.67'. Let's keep this real, shall we? :-P

On photo Junior Cheerleader in the gymnastics/tramploline/cheerleading challenge (2 comments in total)

I don't have any kids in cheerleading, but have friends who do, so I shot quite a few pix. It's expensive and time consuming, but they love it. This little girl caught my eye, so I got off a quick shot before she saw me. After that, well, she got really shy.

I still have an FD88 that does work. I'm a little worried about the battery, though. Can't get any replacements, so it may be a paper weight soon.

HugoS316: I absolutely hated how Sony would put those brightly colored stickers all over their cameras during that time period. Even on $2,500 high end camcorders, etc. It's one of the reasons I didn't buy them.

Uh....they came off pretty easy and clean.

Very sad. I guess the criminals in Rio see this event as a gold mine. I guess you should never set your gear down, or at least wrap the strap around your leg.

No D810? Hmmm....
