Since DPR deleted one of my previous post, I’ll ask again. What magnification is needed to see this atom, which appears neither Red, Green, nor Blue? A pixel is made up of four photoreceptors (RGGB) each of which, I am guessing, are millions of time larger than an atom. What we see ought to be at least as large an image as a single pixel since it’s colour is a mix of all three fundamental photoreceptor colors. Would the image be smaller than a single photoreceptor, it could only be interpreted as Red, Green or Blue. So the image projected onto the sensor ought to be magnified millions of times to be visible! A little more explanation of what we’re actually seeing is needed I think.

Not sexy but amazing when you think what you are looking at.

Joshua A: What I find interesting is that Ricoh/Pentax, whilst only releasing 1 lens (DA 55-300mm PLM), and one one body (The detested KP), has managed to hold on to the majority of their marketshare over the last year.

Obviously in Japan, Pentax cameras sell well, and the sales of existing models (K1, K3ii, K70) in addition to the sales of their new model (KP) have been strong, considering the general lack of communication from the company and the lack of any major news. How hopefully this'll insure that this year is more interesting for us Pentaxians

Pentax is doomed. Why? Because I like Pentax, and everything I like seem to end up that way!

Couldn’t complain on my wedding photos... I took them myself ;-)

Donald B: so is this the design ? if so it wouldn't last 1min shooting portraits in a studio, what stops the plug getting bent back ? pathetic design.

I agree, a dumb design that puts unnecessary tension on an already weak USB port. USB is poorly designed to endure constant use to begin with and often end up prematurely failing. A simple right-angle low profile plug design would be far superior than such rig, which attempts to make the best of a bad cable design.

Rob890: i'm sorry but where is the new Ricoh GR? Any news?

Ricoh definitely long overdue in blowing the dust off the GR design... literally!

sobermeier: compared to the 645z the testimage does not look so good - quiet noisy,

But that would be acknowledging Pentax's better IQ!

It definitely makes a BIG statement!

Wow... why focusing on the performance of the 10 year old GR, which makes it sounds bad, whereas the current GR is an outstanding camera that is hard to beat in the APS-C format. I hope Ricoh didn't come up with this unnecessarily demeaning statement.

On article Readers' Showcase: Luis dos Santos (54 comments in total)

Very talented and skilled photographer, but I disagree on one point, the spaces he photographed are anything but ordinary. Stating that these are ordinary spaces is an insult to the architects who conceived these masterpieces. He does however have a very good perception of spaces that other "ordinary folks" often overlook.

In reply to:

acassino: I think this ad campaign is stupid and offensive.

Offensive in what way? It is silly and dumb... like a vast majority of TV shows nowadays and it does one thing obviously: it gets attention (it got yours). Sometimes even negative attention is better than no attention, and I doubt anyone will reject the EM5II because of it (well... other that ThatCamFan who stated to the contrary perhaps ). If anything it may prompt some people to look it up to find out what it's all about that would have never even thought that Olympus was still making cameras! There's Nikon and Canon and nothing else no?

Nice camera, though I am not certain the flip-out LCD is a good idea. Sure the video club will love it, but the rest not so much. Can't please everyone I suppose.

I guess someone in DPR doesn't appreciate being corrected!

For the price, Leica should provide a free stick-on Red Dot in the box ;-)

Perhaps people thought they were $1.50 😁 That would be a fair price.

I hope the trip to Hawaii was better than these photographs, no fault of the camera! These looks like whomever shot these had a few Mai Tai's before thinking... gosh I forgot, I'm supposed to shoot some images with this new... hmmm, what is it again... ho yeah.. Pentax.... honey why don't you take it out for a spin while me and the boys are playing golf :-)
