BLongborough: Why such an elephantine working set? Or, in other words, why does it need 8Gb of RAM? (Which I don't have.)

Somebody needs to realise that Windows users are not Mac users for a reason...

Please help me with the reason, I can't figure it out by myself...

I think I'll get it.
Public B version is very nimble and impressive. Interface is very simple and transparent, and this program does not break your budget.
The main problem with Luminar - one file at the time, but maybe this is the reason it is so nimble...

On article 2017 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras $900-1200 (476 comments in total)

For me it is strange to see on the same perch 4/3 sensor camera and FF sensor camera. Is it true that both have the same price bracket?

On other hand, you can reduce the difference in IQ during PP (id you know how), but this is another topic...

I'm sure in the nearest future all the cameras of all brands will have this intelligence build into the main board. Even today many inexpensive cameras have iA (intelligent auto) as a standard for scene selection.

s_grins: Why G80/85 is not on the list? Price of the body just fits the price range of this roundup

Firstly, G85 has been reviewed by DPR and received a "GOLD" sticker.

Secondly, all IQ differenced would be represented by author of this article for your (and mine) satisfaction.

In reply to:

s_grins: ... and what if both layers of the sensor capture the same normal light? Can this double DR or reduce noise?
Just curious...

It is simple: imagine a single organic film for visible light with double depth. This film will register double number of photons because depth of the light well is doubled.

It is pure plagiarism from movies I've seen 2 decades ago. BTW, oxygen is a poop of previous plants civilization life cycle, no more more and no less. Maybe human waste is a also indispensable for another civilization that next to come?
I'd call this kind of imagery 'al cheapo'

AF - contrast detect on sensor.
Well, I'm bewitched and intrigued. Also, I may grow up too old.

It is hard do decide between 2017 ON1 RAW developer and Affinity 1.5
ON1 software UI is made for photographer, while Affinity UI is more of traditional PS.
Should I buy both? That is why it is hard to decide.

On article Fast Five: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V Review (423 comments in total)

Is it right to compare cameras based on burst rate?
I'd rather compared Pana ZS-100 with the same sensor but greater ZOOM range. For me ZOOM is more important than burst

s_grins: WOW!!!
It was really fast, before camera hits the stores.
I appreciate the time and effort that DPR invested in this review.
Now it is time to read.
Thanks again.

Good luck. I'm really interested to learn your first impressions - post them on forum. I'm planning to get this wonder at the end of the year, and for now on I'm busy collecting information.
Cheers
Simon

On article YI M1 Sample Gallery (137 comments in total)

Beginning from ISO 1000 and up, noise is taking over... Kudos to Mr. Williams who managed to handle this camera with grace.

raindance: I tell you one thing that clearly stands out is how much better these images look compared to the Sony A series bodies. I still can't understand why Sony has so much praise.

People behind M43 are better photographers.

On article What is equivalence and why should I care? (2463 comments in total)

Equivalence is a teaching when well informed circles want to inform me that their areas are proportional to R square.
The very core of the teaching about sensors equivalence is "total light collected" which is a sacred cow.
The very core of the teaching about lenses equivalence is DOF which is also sacred cow.
Well, I'm not greedy. I'd let them open up lens iris, and to set shutter to the longest possible, and collect all the light possible - just to make them lightly rich.

Good luck, guys. I already know how big you're - R square.

In reply to:

jacketpotato: Gosh i digged the swivel screen I used it almost exclusively.

Low light i just couldn't keep it steady hand held (no image stabilisation). If I took plenty landscape, architecture I would kept it, in the end it's F stop at 85mm-120mm just wasn't fast enough for my requirements.

Nevertheless what an engineering visionary mirrorless offering : 4years before Olympus Pen, 9years before Rx10. There is no 16-80mm F2.8-4.8 Apsc even now. Zeiss lens alone was worth more than the R1.

So many forumees seeked updated R1. I dare say they would sell well, especially keeping same design aesthetic.

I do remember final words of DPR camera review: "lens alone cost $1000".
