The Short 3-lines Summary :

Fuji sensor is too large. The system has a lot of problems.
Micro 4/3 is too small. The system has a lot of problems.
FF is the world best. No problem ever exists in this format.

On photo Careless Driver Almost Kills The Sun in the Circles... challenge (1 comment in total)

Last update

Until today, no one shows his/her responsibility. The chief police says that the incidence happened not under his jurisdiction but above, thus he can do nothing.

The mayor also irresponsibly tells our reporter that he should go asylum!

We will not stop and keep on finding who's behind this secret, who is the real driver.
Stay tuned.

PROTECT THE SUN. WE HAVE ONLY ONE SUN FOR OUR EARTH.
Show that you support the justice by VOTING FOR THIS ENTRY.

Right. But no [1]portable [2]hifi LED that's [3] 20,000 lux@3m exists yet.

Will Hikari: It is interesting that photographers are saying that logarithmic plot would unintelligible. Exposure is usually represented in logs, which is why it appears linear (and the shutter speed and aperture scales on a camera are as they are (equal spacing but changing by a factor of two). EV is also a log scale. Just think of the camera sales in stops...

But the comparison between cameras and phone may not have a strong relationship. Most phone sales are not because it has a camera. Just like most car sales are not because of the CD player.

Most phone sales aren't.
But the few are, and more than enough to bring the compact camera to its knee.

Iphone, Samsung S7, and Huwei P9 .. the sum of these three is in hundred million figure. One of the main reason why people buy them, and its saling point, is solely - its camera.

20,000?
Even it were 100,000, still be useless if the color fidelity is next to mud skin.

The king is not dead. He's just resigns.
His faithful followers still live and follow.

No one may not buy the 4/3 body even heavily discounted. But for the lens and flash, it's far away from dying. If Oly has announced - we'll discount lens for 50%, many people will jump .. immediately.

Two weeks ago, there was such discount! But it's 70% !!
Once the news spread, people from nowhere rushed to the shop. All lenses were gone in less than half a day. There's still mourning even today from those late comers.

BTW, I think back of the my FD lens when Canon announced that they will end the FD mount .. <sigh> Some nostalgia ..

khunpapa: Nikon always listens to the photographers and develop good camera & lens for them.

But seem like it does not listen to the normal people at all.
People who wants something easy to carry, easy to use, good quality and most important - socialize-able. Not just connectivity, but socialized!

Selfie, automatic group photo, good looking body, mobile connection, for example.

While fuji, olympus, panasonic and sony are doing the "boldly go where no man has gone before", nikon keeps on making good tractors and macho with robust body and fuel efficient engine for the good Earth.

Good luck for Nikon.

Yes. Everyone does.
Just waiting for it. Once the smartphone's DR is 10+ .. everyone will.

Fantasy?

Yes, it's fantasy now.
But look back at the "640K ought to be enough for anybody" or the "Everyone's always asking me when Apple will come out with a cell phone. My answer is, 'Probably never.'" statements.

Look farther. In 1980, if someone said "in the future, a mobile device, the size of the lady's hand, can be used to talk to people half the world away, can take thousand of good photo and keep them with thousand of hi-fi song, can memorize unlimited note, etc, etc", he or she would be labeled as 'SF lunatic' :D

Ask any forefront IT engineer to predict what the (IT) world would be in the next ten years. None will speak. Everyone.

On article New 20mm F2 4.5x macro lens released by Mitakon (121 comments in total)

What happens to photographers of today?
Lots of complaints about difficulty and impracticality, less of imaginations and ideas.

I think of all those magnificant photos taken by the 14x magnificant of 20mm f/2.0 lens with -film-. No complaint of DoF. None of lighting.

Just blindly shooting, patiently waiting for the developed film coming back.
Then patiently practicing until perfectly mastering of their equipments.

Even with real time visualization, photo stacking, etc, etc, digital photographers can do nothing but complaint, complaint & complaint. Jeez!

In reply to:

TFD: what would have been more useful would be a 100mm lens with the same mag. ratio. longer macro lens have a flatter field and a larger subject to camera distance allowing for such niceties like lighting.

Field 10x microscope is more practical.

Lack of 4k vdo is not just lack of 4k vdo.
You miss 8k photo which can extract from that 4k stream!

For "PRO" people, this 8k jpg is nothing. But for newbies and weekend warriors, it's brave new world!

Shoot first, select later: no more OOF macro shot, no more missing bird-in-flying, etc, etc.

Hope in the next year, DPreview would start thinking of 'ordinary people' in real life.

Keith Cooper: Interesting but what about that Laowa 24mm f14 relay 2:1 macro lens?

I think it's just 'showcase'. Unpractical for real life. Usable for the very specific situation.

Something like medical endoscope.

0MitchAG: Where are the equivalency police?? I don't know whether to love or hate the 7.5mm without them!

<SIGH>
This year is 2016. It's almost year end too.
Still someone think 7.5mm f/2.8 is FF 15mm f/4 equivalent in every aspects!

English is not my mother's language. But I deeply know what's EQUIVALENT mean. Did you?

BTW, capture the moon with ultrawide lens???

Seem like you know nothing about celestial body photography.
Shooting moon require telephoto, not normal lens. Wide is out of game.
Also the moon's brightness is around 1/250, f/11 @ ISO 100!

BTW, make sure that FF is from "full frame", not fool's flame.

Storen: What is the deal with the 2 cameras? Are they with different lenses or for combining images and reducing noise?

Great conjuncture. Seem like thousands of people who already bought the 2-cam P9 did not notice your say and used it to shoot tgousands of Great Pictures.

davev8: why is this lens so big and heavy....at 70mm by 70mm with a 62mm filter thread and 330g the canon FF equiv is the 24 F2.8 is ,at just over 68mm x 55mm and a 58mm filter thread and 280g ..the Nikon FF 24mm F2.8 AF D is 46mm x 55.5mm a 52mm filter thread and 267g

Seem like you don't understand the real meaning of f/stop and [b]light intensity per area[/b].

You also don't know what really is the Focal Length of the lens. Such _imagination _ meaningless number finally leads to another equaled meaningless number.

So, for my answer, if you really want, we've to be on the same plane of fundamental physics theory.

I compare DP 2 Q with
- Pentax 645 (medium format)
- Leica Q (full frame, editor's choice)
- RX1R ii (full frame, editor's choice)

Both resolution and color fidelity.
SIGH. S I G H.

Seem like DPR staff do NOT care about the IQ anymore.

TheWhiteDog: Shocking! The 2 most expensive cameras are the ones to buy!

Graphene is not the omnipotent panacea. Max DR it can increase should be less than 2 stops.

The sweetness of graphene is for camera company! The metal electrical conductor on the sensor require complex & ultrahigh precision, high temperature, manufacturing processes that are very, very expensive.

Graphene is chemical process. Easy (relatively) and very cheap.
