Richmondthefish: Has anyone been able to generate reliable Pixel shift photos in situations outside of product photography in indoor controlled environments?

I use pixelshift all the time on my K1... and almost always outdoors, and often at night. Just need it to be not very windy.

I was a serial upgrader, but this was primarily to increase sensor size and then resolution/DR. Thing is, since I've had my K1 (1.5 yrs now), I look at the D850, A7Riii and even the Fuji/Hasselblad MF offerings etc and think 'nice camera', but they aren't going to offer any real advantage for my line of photography... and in some important aspects I'd be getting less. For me, I've finally triple jumped over the 'good enough' line and I don't feel that I need *anything* more from a camera... And I can't imagine that is going to change in the next few years either.

NB I reserve the right to retract this statement at any time.

Felts: Reading any thread about Leica cameras on DPReview is a hilarious sport.

When will the detractors realise that if you have to ask how much, it's probably not the camera for you?

@AlanG I'll refer you to my original statement. If you don't get it, don't worry... enjoy whatever camera you shoot with. And if it helps you to understand, no digital Leica is the right camera for me either ;)

@AlanG... errr, it's proabably not the camera for you.

Class A: When the Pentax K-1 was reviewed, the following "Cons" made it into the conclusion:

* Limited uses for Pixel Shift Resolution shooting modes (static environments).

* Limited Raw support for Pixel Shift Files.

If Adobe will not provide better Pixel Shift support for Sony than it does for Pentax (i.e., no support for dealing with slight motion) then the same disadvantages will apply and should make it into the A7Riii's "Cons".

It will be interesting to see whether Phase One will add Pixel Shift support for the A7Riii in Capture One. My guess is that they won't for the same apparent reason they didn't add it for Pentax cameras: They want to protect the resolution advantage of their own medium format cameras.

I adore Pixel Shift in the K1...has made me want for *nothing* despite some fine cameras being released in the year I've owned it...

steelhead3: 2018 will be the year that CC will be $25 or $35 a month and all you supporters of the subscription model will spit out your morning coffee.

Errr, no it won't. Shall we re-review this claim in Dec 2018?

skanter: Analyzing all this geometry is not really productive. When you develop an eye for composition it is intuitive.

Whilst I agree with your 'intuitive' comment, I found it helpful when starting out to apply Rule of Thirds etc to my framing... once these were baked in to my brain then I could use / ignore (usually ignore!!) as the subject required... intuitively.

Felts: I actually think the reverse is true regarding what you were thinking and feeling as you press the shutter... this can colour ones judgement into thinking you've taken a decent image, when it actual fact the emotions you have tied into that shutter press don't translate to *anyone* else. This belief isn't on the same path to great photography IMHO...

Agreed, but when the article is about what makes a 'great' photograph, i.e. an image that is widely applauded, as opposed to photography that is meaningful to the individual who took it, then this point doesn't fit as far as I'm concerned.

On article Nikon D7500 vs Canon EOS 80D (256 comments in total)

On the occaision that I visit DPReview, it seems that the Game of Thrones warring factions are heading towards their final battle: House Mirrorless vs House DSLR.

It's going to be bloody...

On article Re-make/Re-model: Leica Summaron 28mm F5.6 Samples (197 comments in total)

This is an interesting move... frankly, I couldn't care less about huge, overly corrected, corner to corner eye bleeding sharpness at f1.4...
I want small, light-weight lenses that have micro-contrast and 3d pop in abundance... and at f5.6 or f8 for some DOF. More of the same from all manufacturers pretty please!

obsolescence: Too contrasty for me. Will we ever get to see a direct comparison vs. Nikon D810?

K1 with pixel shift will be the comparison I'll be interested in!

Felts: No wide angle prime?! :(

Yes, the wideangle has been on the roadmap since the beginning... but I have the 43 & 77 ltds so have *zero* interest in these new lenses (especially with their SIZE!!!!). No wide angle primes are available so Pentax is missing a trick IMHO... and I'll have to continue to wait patiently! ;)

paulski66: This has been one of my favorite Nikkors since it first came out. In fact, within weeks of buying my copy, I sold my 18-35 AF-S; as much as I liked the zoom, it simply couldn't compete with the speed, brilliant colors, and beautiful oof rendering of the 20mm f/1.8g.

Personally, I don't think this lens gets the credit or attention it deserves.

Khizer... I found my copy didn't focus well either. Never fell in love with it as I thought I would (and at the time I was a 20 fiend). In fact this lens probably ended the love affair between me and that focal length!!

Too easy to pirate the film presets... And because they are frankly too expensive for what they do this does not surprise me. A LR preset needs to be a few dollars/pounds/euros. Not 100+ especially when these film 'emulsions' are free on phones!!!!! Think about it VSCO...
