Jim Evidon: "...Whats the difference between using this or just using a normal LED video light from say Yongnuo with 291 more LEDs and at the same time 12 times cheaper?
And don't tell me the only difference is, that it "flashes" instead of being permanently on...."

You obviously know very little about high speed photography. Think light duration whether it be from the light source or from shutter duration. Both allow light to strike the sensor or film plane. 1/2M sec. shutters are not consumer available if at all. I suggest you bone up on photography basics.

well the Yongnuo don't promise to generate 1'000'000 Lumens. They promise to have 2280 Lumens. Thats the price difference there. 440x more powerfull, but only 7,8x more expenciv.

But the LED gun, with 1M Lumens sounds too good to be true!

I must say ISO 12'800 realy does look better than on the original 7D.
But iso 12800 looked s**t on the 1. 7D anyway

For 5 years research, this isn't much of a update to the original EOS 7D. Yes the Autofocus is very nice! But for me, thats's all. not really better IQ...

On article Lytro announces Illum light field camera (349 comments in total)
In reply to:

aliasfox: Sports is an obvious use case. Sports news is usually viewed on the web or newsprint, so 5MP is fine. With the Lytro, the photographer never has to wait for any kind of focusing - no PDAF, no CDAF, no focus lag whatsoever. As soon as Lebron jumps to make his basket, the photographer hits the shutter, focuses later for the perfect shot every time.

With light field, it should be possible to imitate a FF camera at F/2.8 - set the lens at 85mm equivalent and get FF style portraits anytime. An event photographer could use this to tweak images to clients' desires ("I want Mom over there to be in focus" or "Blur the background more, it's too distracting"). It essentially decouples the artistic (DoF) from the exposure (aperture) equation.

Obviously, neither of these are necessarily common use cases, and this field (no pun intended) still has a ways to go. But if they keep developing it, who knows. In 3-4 years we might have a high ISO, fast shooting FF model with 120 MR/16MP output.

Well you can't get less DOF than F2.0 on a 1" Sensor. So you can't realy "imitate a FF camera at F/2.8".
You can still imitate a FF Camera at F/8 30-250mm

oh just $1,599... after the old Lytro, this one has to come up with a lot better resolution to justify this price!
BTW: whats the resoltion of this camera? what does 40 Megarays mean? 40MP?

Smeggypants: Doesn't make any sense. you're already looking at the subject, so why the need to look at the subject twice over laid with two different perspectives

Well, the camera must have a 3d scanner to know what you are seeing trough the display frame. Those scanners still cost a lot of money. So samsung did make a solution witch looks cool but is a little bit less functional, but i bet you can buy it in a year or so for a competitiv price.

Lol, Sony Ericsson made a Mobile phone in this form factor years ago!
Where the Diplay goes, there was a huge transparent Plastic Block. The Display was in the middle.
It was called "sony ericsson pureness".

On article Nikon D4s First Impressions Review (1027 comments in total)
In reply to:

bobbarber: Question:

Is this ISO stuff smoke and mirrors, or is it legitimate? I admit I'm in the stone age, shooting an Olympus E-410, E-420, and Panasonic G6. I know that this camera is light years ahead of those cameras in high-ISO capability--that isn't my question. I've done some experimenting with my cameras, and I don't see any difference between high-ISO settings and low-ISO settings. That is, an exposure of 1/60 second, ISO 1600, recommended by the camera, gives me the same noise as an exposure of 1/60, ISO 400, two stops slow according to the camera, once I equal the exposures in post.

So is there more going on to these fantastic ISO numbers other than calling what you've always been able to do by a different name? My E-410 tops out at ISO 1600, yet if I shoot a stop slow, I'm at ISO 3200. If I shoot two stops slow, I'm an ISO 6400. Does it make a difference that the manufacturer tells me that's what I'm doing on the menu, or not?

The nikon D4s tops out at 25'600 ISO. When you go higher than that, the camera does exactly what you described. The camera underexposes a ISO 25600 picture and boosts it 1(ISO 51200), 2(ISO 102400), 3 (ISO 204800) or even 4 (ISO 409600) stops. Because the nikon sensor is Fullframe (35mm) it does have less noise than your olympus e-420 (@ISO1600) even when set to iso 25600.

kimchiflower: They look the same except for an added converter lens on the end. Aside from the 8.5mm, I can't see what the other can offer that is not already available.

I suspect these will be manual focus only, and the 12 & 25mm are already suitab;e covered by other MFT glass.

It's nice to see choice and another manufacturer signing up, but these would have to mainly compete on price.

@paul: I guess he's talking about the outside look of the lense. The picture with all 3 lenses. The picture shows 3 identical lenses with just the front a little different. In the 12 & 25mm lense they photoshoped a F1.8 stop on the aparture ring. Thats the only difference seen in the back. It's strange that even the focus distance ring shows the same numbers. My guess: all photohop.

179 focal points --> 179 focus points?

In reply to:

JohnP: There is no cable release remote control similar to the 20D, 7D, etc? Is there only a remote control that attaches to the hot shoe?

I know what you mean. The cable release is the same as in the 350D-700D. Not the one wich is implemented in 20D-50D or 5D or 1D.
Its the cheap cable release with the 2.5mm jack.
