I had the M1 Air for almost a year now. Some of my gadgets (audio stuff) still doesn't have M1 drivers. Also, I hate Apple for deliberately crippling the storage space so you A) pay a HUGE premium for larger storage B) Subscribe to iCloud C) Nullify the portability by having an external drive. Anyway, It's a nice computer, but it's just not perfect like how the internet hypes it.

Mister Joseph: Take my money.

I just recently sold my Samyang (Rokinon) 12mm f2. The lens produced really nice images, but lacked AF, duh. If this new AF 12mm/f2 works well enough, I might even replace my gigantic Sigma 16/1.4 with it

"Why do you need AF with 12mm UWA APS-C lens?"
So it can AF faces when using video.

Buying this is like buying tube amps, vinyl records, reissue electric guitars, steel frame bicycles, Stan Smiths or canvas Chuck Taylors, etc.

Mister Joseph: Does it work with A6xxx ? Would be a nice solution having the camera on a gimbal. It's super finicky having a wire dangling when the camera is on a gimbal

So the APSC e-mount hotshoe only captures analog signal (i.e. like parallel wire to the 3.5mm jack)?

Nice. My problem though is it's still much nicer to edit on my PC's 30" 1440p screen than my tiny Macbook Air M1, same with Photoshop, especially that I'm always home.

In reply to:

(unknown member): Toronto bike messengers look to be better socialized than what we live with here in Philadelphia. In Philly they almost exclusively ride fixed wheel/no brake bikes and have little regard for anybody else they have to share the road or even the sidewalk with. Not something anybody outside of their tribe is likely to be nostalgic about.

It's a nice portfolio though. I just can't relate. If there was a photo of a "fixie" blowing through a red light in rush hour traffic while flipping everybody the bird it'd be closer to my experience.

From the photos, "Chris 1996" looks to be a brakeless fixie. "Handsome Dave 1996" too, but he has a front "emergency brake" though, so who knows maybe he's running it single speed.

No more "edge" screen meaning we can now buy proper glass screen protectors like on iPhone?

Pentax has absolutely best IBIS, and with this new one, unparalleled OVF.

Worst AF no doubt!

Also they were a leader in mirrorless innovation before. Maybe they're still traumatized by that Marc Newson camera lol

On article Tamron announces 17-70mm F2.8 for Sony APS-C cameras (340 comments in total)

This new Tamron + Sigma 1.4 trio + Sony 10-18/4 OSS are already perfect. Ok maybe the Sony 10-18 could use a refresh or a 3rd party alternative! What's your vote for the longer focal lengths?

Oh wow I want this for my bike! Would be cool if it did 180 8K though. Why isn't there a 180 8K anyway?

It would be fantastic if Sony supports older models too (like NEX cameras)

Sony's take on the market is "make the pie bigger" instead of "make my slice bigger" correct?

They make camera parts for other camera brands, so if the camera market (the "pie") shrinks or grows, Sony gets affected regardless of Sony-branded camera sales. Am I right?

So is "DFD" basically "Contrast Detect" ?

Combined with AI background masking, this is great for ID pictures lol.

On a serious note, shadowless, backgroundless ID portraits are food for certain Machine Learning algo...
