Dear Jeff,

Thanks for your preview. I'd like to comment a few things though.

It would have been interesting to test the High Resolution mode which is supposed to have improved in the handling of moving portions on the image.

Explaining how the Pro Capture mode works would be nice too : are the photos grouped for review? is there any facility to select from the batch ?

The Live mode is a 5 years old feature already in the E-M5.

Even in single AF, how did the AF selection work, was there any novelty there?

Perhaps it's the weather conditions, but all in all, I found that the preview didn't address much..

On article Sony a7R II versus a7 II: Eight key differences (399 comments in total)


Thanks for the article, I think I'd like the addition of firmware specific differences, if any.
I think I remember the A7RII allowing more control on the auto iso settings? to name only one, but there are perhaps more ?
Maybe other "soft" differentiators ?

On article Kodak revives Super 8 with part-digital cine camera (362 comments in total)

Lots of harsh and blind criticism here.

There seems to be a wide misconception between what appeals to photographers who are curious about the craft and all its forms, including its most tedious processes, to the extend of video and "hardcore digital photographers" who will repeat ad nauseam how technology and convenience HAS to eliminate any other form of tools and creative ways. duh.

For Once, Kodak doesn't come with a failed "me too" and comes with what they hopefully still manage to do. I'm not really sure yet about the business model too but for once it looks like a real thoughtful idea to me.

Now, for all the bankrupt talk and all. It's just uninformed guessing. Who knows what production they planned, the actual processing chain exists, you can be sure it's probably just film stocks from your fav movie ... it might be a rather "unexpensive" and reasonable attempt from them, considering trends that obsessed digital only people can't seem to detect.

Somehow, reading this, I felt this was perfectly "Olympus possible" territory.

On article Olympus releases OM-D E-M5 firmware version 2.0 (86 comments in total)

I join others here to say it's great news for us to finally get this. I was hoping for it.
Thanks Olympus,

Focus peaking in 2.1 ?

I'll be interested to see, too, if the banding with the 20mm at high iso has been silently fixed.
