  • I guess it must just be because choices by the photographer and not the difference between Bayer and XTrans, but somehow these sample images seem to not get across the characteristic color and...

  • Maybe Kodak will bring it to the US? Cheap, slower and less saturated than currently-available drugstore film stocks; sounds like my ideal 35mm color negative film. After browsing that Flickr link,...

  • If the Nikon 70-200/4 really does offer "broadly comparable performance" to the lens in question while the Canon rates "generally sharper," and if this was the focal length range that I valued...

  • Eh, the concept of 'stills photography' as a form of visual media recording that is existing separately and requiring separate hardware from video recording is something that one could easily...

  • Generally speaking, yes. But by that definition the original Olympus Pen F & FT would not be "SLR-style", despite being literal single-lens reflex cameras.

  • Yes, it's weird. They're using an 85mm for this camera instead of the 55/1.8 that was used for the A7RII's test scene.

  • The lack of a bullet point for Eterna on any of the update lists is worrisome. Stills made on the Eterna setting can look good, even if it is marketed as the Film Simulation for Video.

  • Purple flare is such a minor point to complain about. Pretty unobtrusive in these images. ... Except that on close inspection, the weird horizontal striping in image 5 *is* actually distracting.

  • Absolutely true, and this is a constant point that folks like to harp on. I tried to make it clear in my post that I'm talking about use case, not optics. 35mm 'full frame' is still the standard ...
  • I wouldn't buy the 200/2 for $6K ($4500 seems more reasonable to me, for what amounts to a 300/2.8 equivalent on a crop system, even if Canon are selling their latest and greatest 300/2.8 for ...
  • Yeah, I guess digital medium format is not really all that close to real 645. Just kind of bigger than 'full frame'. That makes it all the more doable IMO. If Leica can stay alive with their...

  • I wonder how much faster, more efficient, and advanced digital camera technology will have to get before someone goes off and just does a fully sports/action/video pro-spec "medium format" camera...

  • Inscrutable personal preferences aside, I always appreciated the Fuji system of direct control dials from a usability standpoint. They provide basic setting information at a glance, without...

  • Plywood - The change from top-mounted & discrete to low-profile & agnostic dials happened during the film era, when SLRs fully adapted to AF, electronic aperture control, and fully automated...

  • Nice FFX cosplay in that field.

  • New X-T2 user here. I've noticed the inaccuracy of S-AF in mostly the same way as already described here, except that I'd say mine is missing the mark closer to 5% of the time, rather than 1%. The ...
