On article DxO ONE adds Raw image workflow for iOS (17 comments in total)
In reply to:

G Sciorio: One of the most unique yet misunderstood cameras of it's time. Amazing image quality. It's for photographers not camera geeks.

No I did not and not intending to. The thing is, it apparently applies to many other, if not most conscious users. There are much more practical solutions on the market. That's even if you consider each factor separately: price, size, image quality...not to mention ergonomics. It's a simply failed combination of those components that turned not-so-bad idea into a form far from optimum in most practical aspects.
There are many other products on the market I'm not willing to test for the same reason. Not only the photo-industry; there are tons of products hitting the market with no genuine concept, with a price-tag way past selling point Remember recent hasselblad products? You can also check the kickstarter. That thingy here is the same problem only founded with more $.
I believe it's a reasonable approach, unless you are trying to apply here "did you try it > no > then shut up" kind of logic; then I see no way to argue with someone who is simply trying to justify his DxO 1 purchase...

Couldn't agree more. Yep - One fully misunderstood camera...mainly by whoever designed it to what it is and also by one other guy who put a price tag on it.

They managed the impossible - made a ridiculous product even more ridiculous...

"...the camera's shooting mode can be changed by holding your hand over the lens for 3 seconds - allowing a degree of control without having to remove the camera from its case...."
Wow that's smart...ahhh wait maybe not so...there are better & cheaper u/w cameras on market that you get with buttons, displays, dials, etc built in...is that bs for real?
What if I want to take a 3s exposure of my hand? ;P

A new gadget for desperado/gangsta-photographers: the "rolling coffin".
Go in: bring the lighting eq. in (or not)...
Go out: roll out with a dead guy in it.

Langusta: How big are the files?

If that is the actual size, then this feature makes sense indeed. Only thing to improve would be to go to full resolution.

Langusta: How big are the files?

Well, my question was to the weight of a file made with "post-focus" function. I'm curious if there is more to it than a focus bracketing can provide.

Langusta: What a shame...not that I'm a user of fan of this brand, but it's bad news to everyone when an ambitious player quits the race. The competition now gets more movement (no pressure on R&D, more marketing b.s. instead of a genuine progress, "funnier" pricing policies, etc...) and customer gets less options.

Ok, then using your "logic":
If I do not buy products off all brands in given business, I'm not a fan of a free market?
Let' bounce it back even shorter: "if you don't buy a product of XX brand your'e a communist". LOL indeed

On article 4K video: What you need to know (286 comments in total)
In reply to:

Joe Ogiba: It's amazing how clueless people are about 4K here on DPR. Most top selling smartphones from Apple, Samsung, Sony , LG etc shoot 4k UHD video. Most TVs produced of 50" or more will be 4K UHD in a few months. 4K UHD is 8.3 mp vs 1080p with 2mp so you need your eyes examined if you can't see the difference between 8mp and 2mp. I have two 4K monitors and two 4K TVs because I hate looking at lower resolution . My NX1 and GH4 4K videos look fantastic on my 4K displays along with 4K Netflix and Amazon movies and TV shows. Youtube is now showing 8K videos.

So it happens that I did look at it, and only then I did calc to understand what I saw. What people usually miss is the fact that they are watching the 4k/HD samples in the shop from a distance much smaller than a typical viewing situation. Other thing is that the "old tech" for comparison is often being fed with worse signal/setting to make the new appliance shine.
Try checking ~50" 4k/HD from same distance (say 2.5m, which is already pretty close imo) and make sure that feed/signal is comparable. You will not see the difference.
The simplified formula is a viewing distance 4.2cm/1" of screen diagonal for HD and 2.1cm/1" for 4k respectively. Anything more distant would grant no benefit in terms of visible detail.
For HD (@2.5m) you would need 60” screen to have any chance of ever seeing the pixels. In other words you would start potentially seeing benefits of 4k if you get something significantly bigger than that size.
PS: and no, I had no envelope to help me in the calc ;)
