blåland: The Carl Zeiss Jena/Meyer-Optik design looks great. I wonder why the new Meyer Optik didn't do it like this.

I think your guess is right - it allows you to focus with thick mittens - but then pressing the release button....

8 stops - should make it quite easy to shoot handheld at 1-2 sec - according to rumors R3 MKII will be able to stop your subject from moving for 2 sec....

The amount of detail visible in the feathers at 100% is amazing...

PhotonCollector: Looks good - but coming from an other planet I would ask myself - why are they all wearing masks....

I am all for masks - it just struck me how different the world looks these days - In Denmark we wear masks in shops and indoors in common workspaces - but not outdoors - there 6 feet of distance is enough (according to our authorities).

I am also very much for the GFX 100s - and I am trying to convince my wife that we need one...

iShootWideOpen: Why do you guys always assume architectural photogs need ultra wide lenses? The best photos are made with moderate wides shooting partial sections, not everything in one shot.

Not to mention the distorted proportions that are often the result of wide-wideangles

Wanderer23: Cameras like this and the X-A7 really tempt me because of the non-x-trans. (I'm a X-T3 owner) I'd love to switch back from C1 to Lightroom. Not becuase one is better than the other, I just don't want to pay for both. I need PS hence have lightroom....

but Lightroom can handle X-trans RAF files - maybe not as well as C1 - but looks OK to me...

PhotonCollector: The silly choice that Fujifilm has made (at least on the X-T20) - where choosing the "auto" mode - means that you can not take RAW (RAF) pictures should be removed. ctually it makes a lot of sense to be able to take raw pictures in "auto" mode - because it gives more room for post-adjustments, if the "auto" should make a less intelligent "decision"

The Auto mode does more than P-mode in that it makes an analysis of the scene before choosing speed and aperture

On article Canon's 32MP chip marks the end of the 24MP APS-C era (492 comments in total)

Scaling this up to full-frame would be close to 100 Mpx - will be interesting to see how it competes with "MF" 100 Mpx ...

tangbunna: matte eye contact lens is now being built.

Perhaps anti reflection coating like the ones used on museum glass would be better - though it might just result in the normal eye reflection becoming visible - so coating the eye is probably the way to go...

Impressive - next time I'd go less wide - the sun Looks solarized rather than eclipsed 😀

Slightly noisy even at sub 100 iso - sort of like the early days of photography - be sure to shoot outside in bright daylight!

paulfulper: Monstro doesn't belong to any language , in Italian it would be Mostro

nathantw: What's cool about the attached comparison video is if you cross your eyes during the side-by-side shots they'll be in cross-view 3D.

- pretty neat indeed - though somewhat uncomfi when the scene changes and there is only one large image....

fyngyrz: Note the reflection in the model's eye of the photog's lighting setup in the image with roses in the hair... great demo of how good the camera is... and how amateur the photog is.

You set up for one specular highlight in each eye for any posed setup. No more, no less. Ring flash reflections, umbrellas, etc... no. Fail.

Perhaps he/she hadn't imagined that the white table top would show up so clearly....

keepreal: Another thought is that there are no straight lines in nature, so the grid should have been made up with curves. They could not be circular, either, because that is a special case of an ellipse or whatever, so therefore unnaturally regular.

I often notice how beautiful the asymmetrical balance of a tree and its branches can be. Really! Which laws of composition do they follow, Mr Tavis Leaf Glover?

There are plenty of straight lines in nature - the horizon is very straight - and all crystals of minerals (and other substances that form crystals have lots of straight edges - pyrite, halite (table salt) sugar just to name a few....
