On article Bentley creates a 53 billion pixel car commercial (165 comments in total)
In reply to:

Frank_BR: "The final image was made up of approximately. 700 hi-res images and ended up at 53 billion pixels in size."
------------------------------------------------------

The Nikon D810 is a 36 Mpixel camera, so 700 images stitched together produce a final image of about 25, not 53 billion pixels! Some detail is missing in this story...

Photoshop does resize.

Jefftan: I am not trying to be a troll, but ask a serious question
Why should people buy either one and not A6300 which is $600 or $700 cheaper

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2597 comments in total)
In reply to:

kalpeshmodi: Its disappointing to see that reviewer's at DPREVIEW were unable to maintain focus on person riding bike and resulting in blurry out-of-focus pics, There are plenty of pictures on Pentax forum from actual K-1 owners here at DPREVIEW getting excellent results shooting variety of action sports.
It is easy to blame on equipment than honning skill to use the equipment with proper skill set.

well Simon, Pentax is not the only brand I have so nothing about fanboyism. The AF is not poor, that's the point. Maybe the reviewers forgot to see through the VF?

Rule #1: Reviewers are always right.

OMG. Even with poor AF my K-1 consistently gives me sharp photos with the DFA 28-105, FA 43, and DA 300. I wonder how sharper it would be if the AF is accurate!!!

Just a side note, I've been shooting aviation photos with my Canons as well and so far I'm not seeing any AF inaccuracies. Of course tracking an aircraft is much easier than bicycle, but it is nowhere near as poor IMO...

FantasticMrFox: It saddens me to see a brand as old and thoroughly accomplished as Leica jumping onto a bandwagon driven by offering meaningless gadgets for the rich that promote style over functionality. They used to offer the exceptional for a large amount of money, now they are adding the pointless for even more money ...

The buyers in that segment are basically screaming at the luxury brands to take away their money. Leica is just exploiting that - without even introducing new tech. Any company would want to do that.

UnOfficiallyDNG: Sorry, that camera is as ugly as sin, can't believe that it's the same company that brought us the 503CW

If it looks ugly then it must suck at taking photos then

drawer77: for my instagram selfies, i only use Hasselblad

barely enough resolution for FB profile pictures, though

The expensive casing should compensate all the aberrations of the poor optics.

http://www.dpreview.com/products/compare/side-by-side?products=canon_24_2p8_is&products=nikon_24_1p8g_ed&products=panasonic_12_1p4

Canon 24 2.8: 7 bladed - 11 elements in 9 groups - No sealing - Plastic construction - Heck, even the 24 1.4 only have 8 blades - 13 elements in 10 groups

Nikon 24 1.8: 7 bladed - 12 elements in 9 groups - No sealing - Plastic construction

Nikon 24 2.8: 1990s lenses - 7 bladed - 9 elements in 9 groups (no ED or any special element, questionable coating compared to modern lense) - No sealing - Plastic construction

Panasonic 12: 9 bladed - 15 elements in 12 groups - Weather sealing - All metal construction

Ah let me throw this in as well. Panasonic gives you a metal hood.

Any objection here?

Too expensive for small sensor.

Funny though, at the price of the best overal crop sensor camera you can buy 6D, D750, etc for a lot less money with arguably better IQ.

In reply to:

Sean65: Day 2 and I thought I'd revisit this article, the works and the comments. Two things come to mind.

Whilst I've never really been a fan of the work produced by photography degrees, I do like the fact that this is classic in the sense that it is photography and free from in-camera and post processing wizardry.

In the last eight years or so, the sheer amount of cliched gimmick laden garbage being produce has swung the balance from photographic ability to camera ability.. You know the long exposure, filtered to hell, process beyond recognition type of stuff.

It's a bit like music. If I were to play Miles Davis's Bitches Brew album to the average X Factor viewer they would be horrified. They wouldn't understand the complexity of the music because they are musically ignorant and need formulated pop musical cliches before they can relate.

So that leads me to think that most commenters here are just a bunch of handbag swinging, ballet dancing, Brittany Spears fans.

I got lost in the second paragraph already.

Morpho Hunter: Well (presumably) this camera is already "dead in the water" after it's been rumoured that Olympus's EM-1 mark II camera (with its comparatively tiny, super high quality lenses) will produce 80 megapixel hand-held images .. for a fraction of the cost of the Hassy body and lenses..... but hey .. it could
all be a scam!! The era of full frame and medium format cameras is about to end ...

m4/3. LOL.
