  • Until it produces a view which is rectilinear and nearly free of wide angle distortion, it will remain a gimmick. To be immersive the viewing experience needs to be like turning your head. It's...

  • The UHS-II standard tops out at 312.5 MB/s transfer speed. That makes it only about 2/3 the max read speed, but is still faster than anything can write - and write speed is what really matters for...

  • It's probably a laser satellite ranging rig. http://goo.gl/9l86Gi

    I don't know if it's one of the ones from the Goddard group, but it's almost certainly what it is. I worked in that group when I...

  • Created discussion thread ZS100 custom ring / per setting?
    Does anyone know if there is a way to set the ring function on the ZS100 for each (PASM) dial position separately? The manual appears to show that any custom setting  forces the ring into that one ...
  • And, properly implemented, the sensor would need to receive a certain minimum level of IR based on the scene to prevent you from putting an IR notch filter over the lens.

  • Have you taken apart an SD card lately? They're almost entirely air. The contacts at the front are connected to a (surprise!) microSD sized package at the front of the card and the back half is...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    @Greynerd - I'm completely fine with using better optics over software correction, but I'm unaware of any lens which has internal optics which are appreciably larger than the front or rear...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    I can buy the leaf-shutter argument, but all you need to do is look at the front and rear optics of the lens in the photos to see that you don't really need much glass to make an F3.5 lens with a...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    I'm curious why the lens is so (physically) large. It looks like it could have been easily placed in a housing with a 42mm filter ring and made 20-30mm shorter. Is there thermal management going on...

  • Now I feel special. ;-) It's like reddit gold, but flashier (and without benefits). :-D BTW - I messed with one at the B+H Store in NYC while on vacation, along with several others I'm considering....

  • Meh - I've had bigger.

  • Are you kidding? With a pancake lens it's barely larger than a Sony RX10-III - the perfect travel camera with better optics, much larger sensor, etc. Everyone who bought the Sony is now crying in...

  • To heck with an octa-cam...we're going all the way to SIXTEEN!

  • You jest, but it's coming. The upgrade to UHD for VR use (slip your phone into a viewer to turn it into a VR headset) means they're alreading thinking about your phone as a real VR device. Two...

  • I had a chance to hold one of these over the weekend, and I was surprised how deep (front to back) the body is. I don't have small hands, but it actually felt a bit large/awkward (and I used to...

  • That EB version goes back at least 15 years; I think I bought it (or maybe got it as a gift) back in '99 or '00

  • Does it also have a clip for the mistletoe?

    On a more serious note, I have an old Eddie Bauer mount which is a collapsable 3 leg mini-tripod with a velcro strap that is used for the same kind of...

  • Battery life? Quick charge capable?

    I'm sold on the Stainless case, the high end processor, wireless charging, and the 128GB of built in memory - I'll skip the SD card. I'm even good with the...

  • No, you don't get a cleaner image unless you have a better sensor, and if you increase the ISO, you get more noise unless you have (again) a better sensor.

    I'm sure that @Sioghan A meant to say...

  • No f/4, period. I'm not concerned about getting a *shallower* depth of field AT 220mm and diffraction is not limiting at this end of the lens. I'm more concerned about photons per square mm on the...
