On article Canon will add C-Log to the EOS 5D Mark IV for $99 (463 comments in total)

My guess is the hardware is simply an aluminum heatsink to address the heat created processing, to weight the video as C-log.

On article The Sony a9 is a 24MP sports-shooting powerhouse (1878 comments in total)

What an exciting set of camera specs. Is it better than a D5 or 1DX II? Hope the review does a decent comparison with them along with illustrating how this body will exceed the C&N is all areas including durability. Does it have the weather sealing and built like a tank characteristics required to survive the outdoor lousy weather it needs to withstand?
I don't want to pay $6,000 CA for the body.
Battery life is still very diosappointing.

In reply to:

Manzur Fahim: I have updated the LR. Now everytime I want to edit a photo from LR to PS, it says PS needs new raw converter 9.10. Fine, downloaded and install that one too. But LR still doesn't see it and keep asking everytime I want to edit in PS from LR>edit in...

Uhmm, you're the public beta test of release code.

RyoHazuki224: Haha, I like the last message about their sensors being able to pave the way for a prosperous society.

The fate of the WORLD lies with Canon CMOS sensors, didn't you know??!??!?!

Dramatic CMOS video is dramatic!

The implication is that many applications which will advance our society are based upon having excellent artificial sight, like those in the medical field, or surveillance, military, automotive industries.

HB1969: I couldn't see the moonbow in this video, could anyone else?
Another thing: I was curious about the 250mp sensor... I wonder if it's worth combining the output of 4 colour pixels to gain a "single" true colour pixel. You would still end up with 62.5mp resolution but I wonder if the effect would be similar to the foveon sensor (different tech, I know)

Yup, I could see the moonbow. It's a video in near total darkness.

In reply to:

Playright: Was anyone else confused by the "Canon made pixels bigger to catch more light" and "Canon made pixels smaller to catch more resolution"?

Nope. Bigger pixels for light sensitivity, smaller pixels for more details.

On photo Leafless Tree. in the Supermoon! challenge (22 comments in total)
In reply to:

riknash: This photograph of the full moon is much like I also envisioned. The technical aspects to capture both the foreground tree and the moon in detailed focus using f/8 at 500mm on a 35 mm sensor according to my DOF calculator would require a distance from the tree of about 1000 meters. Perhaps one could get closer to the tree if they allowed the tree to be at the near focus point of 685 meters.

Assuming an uncropped frame, the minimum distance to get both the moon and the tree in focus with a 500mm lens on a 35 mm sensor at f/8, is well over 680 meters. Would the tree remain that size in the frame?

On article Serious spec: HTC 10 camera review (32 comments in total)

Have to wait until it's last year's model. $1300 for a phone is just too much. Comments here say the audio is great so a real definite plus, even if the photo capabilities are not quite as good as some. At least it's not exploding.

How do you know they don't use touch screen? Likely a tablet or two is interfaced to this thing.

Thanks for the very informative and entertaining video. The best way to get great wildlife photos is to have an excellent guide along with the great gear.

alcaher: Great images but last picture has a terrible story behind, the killing of animals by humans

So true, the fact is hard to accept a so called intelligent species can do so much wrong, having learned so little over so long, we will inadvertently press the "reset button" once again.

I'm sure these are very excellent lenses for budget conscious movie projects. It's good to see products like these as it should help retain the value of all recent Sigma lenses. Their earlier products were not so good but with the much improved quality, purchasing Sigma is a good choice even for the discerning user.

In reply to:

disasterpiece: Still waiting for a DX tele zoom. Are they going to at least try answering Sigma's 50-100 or they're going to pretend that they haven't released the D500?

Uhmm, the 70-200 Canon version works great on the 7D II or the 5D III for sports shooting. The Sigma 50-100 would be useful for some situations but really short for others. This latest Nikon version should be just as useful for the Nikon shooters. Hope it's built super-rugged.

Looks like a useful tool for video/cinema movie makers.
