If it isn’t made by the original manufacturer it is not a replica, it is a reproduction.
This product is neither.

Why does DP Review say “internal focus” when the lens uses “unit focus”?

It would seem you don’t remember Yabbocky(sp?), a frequenter of the comments threads who, somehow, managed to disagree with all sides of an argument, especially about (whispers)equivalence.

Fazal Majid,
Electromagnetism is certainly one of the 4 Forces. In science fiction the term “force field” is used to distinguish an imaginary technology from existing technologies. The “force field” of Herbert’s devising obviously belongs to the same category as warp drives and tractor beams, which also don’t exist.

Dear Mr Fazal Majid,
Respectfully Sir, no one has stated that “force field” technology is employed here or, factually speaking, exists. Therefore Mr Herbert’s notion has not yet become “reality”.

Barry Twycross: Now I want to know why the element cracked. I read through the whole tear down (fascinating as usual), but we don't find out why. (It doesn't "solve" the mystery like the headline says.)

Headline uses the word “solve” because that was the motivation for the tear down.
It doesn’t say “solved” or “solves”.

Slouch Hooligan: It is plain to any discerning person that Apple Corporation represents the epitome of business models and that Apple products are the pinnacle of design and engineering.
Anyone who disagrees is a stupid ignoramus.

col4bin: scanning the comments here is depressing. people are never happy. it is a freaking camera phone with a sensor the size of a fingernail. the quality is great for the majority of users and their intention...capture and share their life moments. lighten up people...."photographers" have turned into a bunch of critical drama queens.

TV sports, TV “wrestling”, Jerry Springer;
Video that exploits addiction to adrenaline. They serve a mindset of A versus B.
That mindset is then brought to every online forum. If you say A then B must be championed so as to have a conflict, often about a False Dichotomy.

Having said that, let me tell you
4:3 is the One True Aspect Ratio!
3:2 is the work of the VERY DEVIL!

My 8X10 view camera with ISO 25 film sheets produces images with more detail. But I have to have a really big pocket to carry it around with me everywhere I go😉😂😎

madeinlisboa: And I thought this was a photography site

DPReview is a gear site that covers a wide range of devices that capture images digitally. There are sites that deal with the art of photography.

Darren James: I notice a bunch of people mentioning stop motion in the comments, but that isn’t mentioned at all in the video from what I can tell? Did I miss something or is this just a shared assumption? There’s a few shots that show the motion control rig in movement with the write to card light on continuously (back of the camera). It’s worth noting that one shouldn’t confuse the term “motion control” with “stop motion” just in case that comes up.
If anyone can point me toward more info that would be swell, I’d really like to learn more about this process.

Some people here seem to have confused “stop motion” with “motion control”.

entoman: The #1 rhubarb on a plate image is quite clever, but being a bit of a purist, I prefer images that are "discovered" rather than "contrived".

So my 1st choice is the semi-abstract #9 by Axel Breutigam. The juxtaposition of shapes and tones works extremely well, and it takes a really good eye to spot the right angle that brings all the elements together so well.

As for #7, it's a nice image and the tonal manipulation on the building works well, but my instant reaction was "ugh, what a horrible fake sky". If the photographer absolutely *had* to add an alien sky, I think he could have chosen one that didn't look quite so obviously fake.

I missed that assertion by the photographer. Still, long(ish) exposures of moving things can result in a smudged look. It may be that the photographer wanted to fill a blank space without distracting from the subject.
Speaking of “subject”, art appreciation is entirely subjective.

That could be said of virtually every product, photographic or otherwise, in the marketplace, and the associated packaging.
