  • Victor: I get how optics and sensors play into the final photo. And I agree with Souciantmag that the actual mechanics weren't spelled out very well in the original review (they seem to have...

  • @Dukat: In 2017, I traveled Europe for a few weeks with a borrowed Sony A7 II and Samyang 35mm pancake lens, just to prove a point to myself -- that I didn't need the Nikon D500 or the Sigma f/1.8...

  • Ha! True. I think my point was there were lots and lots of fixed focal length cameras, and while popular, 35mm was just one of many. Still, thanks for reminding me about the models out there which...

  • On page 2, there's four paragraphs on how it works on this camera. What it's doing is performing "zone focusing" presets, where the aperture and focal distance are set to make sure that anything...

  • "I think there were many more film cameras with a fixed 35mm lens" is possibly a perception rather than a reality, though I may be wrong about that. For decades, just about every fixed-lens 6cm...

  • Fair point on the inaccurate AF. As mentioned in the review, earlier Fujifilm cameras did this, and the X-T100 and X-A5 aren't very accurate either. It could be a matter of inefficient code being...

  • According to Henri Cartier-Bresson, "decisive moment" photography (a term he absolutely despised, apparently, despite it being endlessly and incorrectly attributed to him) runs the gamut of waiting...

  • Interesting, because there was a whole glut of film cameras in the 80's and 90's that filled this "niche" because 28mm (or its equivalent in medium format) was considered to be *the* perfect prime...

  • I wish this camera was good. As someone who wants a small camera that takes good photos without fuss, doesn't care about zoom, would use it for street and travel, and, should it break, would know...

  • In fear of being lost among hundreds of comments or buried by Pentax fans' negativity, I mostly agree with this article.

    I've followed the full-frame siren call, and it didn't really get me...

  • I love that Ω concept, though it looks more like a Mamiya M645 or a Hasselblad 2000FC, what with that optional grip and viewfinder, plus the lens mount shutter ring. A Hasselblad 500 had everything...

  • I have to wonder if the heat problem for processing 4K video or greater is partially the result of camera manufacturers putting too much emphasis on building up sensor technology and not enough on...

  • I don't understand what lens correction profiles in Lightroom has to do with what I wrote. Please explain why something Adobe is doing has to do with Nikon's lack of foresight and proactive...

  • I used Nikon DSLR's as I learned photography. I never considered them as a company that was quick to respond. "Upgrading a camera isn't easy," isn't confidence inspiring when other camera...

  • Where does that say it's $5 only for a single 135 frame? And who would mail in a single frame of 135 film to develop and scan, and how would they do that without sending in at least a canister that...

  • "Maybe we should think about interchangeable lens Instax. One of the biggest features for mirrorless cameras are interchangeable lenses, so Instax is one of our opportunities."

    As someone who...

  • I have mixed feelings.

    On one hand, I like that Zeiss is trying something different. Internal storage is something I feel that more cameras ought to be coming with as NAND becomes cheaper. OTA...

  • This is the camera I have been wanting since the GFX 50S was announced. While I wish it had an optical hybrid viewfinder, I’m certainly not complaining at US$4500 for a portable medium format...

  • Based on some of the more popular comments I've read thus far, maybe I'm the only person who has a practical use in mind for this camera:

    I do location shoots, and I tend to drag along a D500 with...

  • Hey DPR,

    Unrelated to the camera itself, but related to these "What you need to know..." posts, would you mind adding an option to read the article as a single page? On just about every device I...
