Graham Meale: Interesting that the actual eclipse is a little larger and in a different position on the processed shot. Maybe not just "simply took the shot on the left and pulled the shadows up in post"?

The processed shot was also cropped.

semorg: why not go .95 or eve .75 that would give them a lot more press coverage :)

They should just end everything with a 9. f/0.99 or f/1.39 or f/1.99 sure sounds a lot better than f/1.0, f/1.4 and f/2.0, no? No?
...No?
:-p

For a moment there, I thought Billingham was venturing out into adventure and off-road bags.

Problem with the TurnStyle (and most sling bags in general, as well as many courier messenger bags in general), is that they're designed for right-handers: not all lefties can easily adapt to, and feel comfortable with, the strap going over the left shoulder.

Some manufacturers have a symmetrical strap shape and provide a D-ring at the bottom left and right corners of the bag so that you can swap handedness; others use D-rings on both sides of the strap so you can swap sides; I am also aware of Timbuk2 offering a left-handed version of their courier messengers in their customization options. So it's good to see that there are other options for left-handed users out there.

At the risk of derailing this conversation, can we at least get back on track?

Jim Evidon: For those who live in a bubble? I find the distortions in the demo video more than a little distracting. Aside from a possible scientific research tool or a novelty camera for those who have everything else and need the latest gadget, I see little application.

As BikeBen said, you can view this with your smartphone. The view changes as you move your phone around. A tablet with the necessary sensors (gyros, compass, etc?) should probably work too.

(Although you'll probably look silly waving your device around, if you do it in public.)

@villagranvicent The tapered cylinder shape? Yeah, I kind of get what you mean; I'm not really a fan either.

Not really a fan of the design. As a backpack, it's fine but as a messenger bag, you can't efficiently work out of the bag without a real risk of all your equipment spilling out, which defeats the purpose of that form factor.

Adrian Tung: "a 20MP APS-C camera 'based on Samsung Galaxy NX technology' with a fixed prime lens"

It looks like a Samsung Galaxy NX wrapped up in leather/pleather/fake leather, and one of the NX Pancake prime lenses.

Well this certainly explains the high cost -- a Galaxy NX with prime lens, plus a mobile data subscription, isn't exactly cheap, considering that Samsung have exited the camera business.

Which begs the question, where are they getting all these Galaxy NX's to mutilate? Either they had enough funding to secure all the necessary rights/tech/manufacturing facilities/etc, or I smell something fishy...

Thanks.

Interesting to notice the way the Instax film handles extreme overexposures... it gives you dark spots instead of just a complete white-out (as seen in shots with the sun, and some shots with light bulbs where you see the black shape of the filament).

They should try doing something similar that video, but with a better quality bunch like Benro, Induro, et al.

In reply to:

Seedeich: Interesting idea.

They should get rid of the battery as well and use that old school film transportation lever to produce just enough electricity to record the image and to drive the light meter.
With a couple of spare SD cards you could shoot forever off the grid.

Would be even better if Nikon made a FM-style DSLR without LCD and thumb-lever charged.

I don't know if a thumb lever crank is enough to produce enough charge to power the electronics. Would be a pretty cool idea if that's possible though. They could also save on power consumption by not powering the light meter (perhaps make that run on separate+optional LR44 batteries), and have a manual shutter winder like the Epson RD1.

On article Microsoft Lumia 950 camera review (122 comments in total)

Just a minor note: The frame lines are bugged in the screenshot, being offset to one side. The most recent Camera app update fixes that, and rich capture mode has been renamed Rich HDR, and comes with 3 settings on/off/auto.
