On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta DiMAGE X (117 comments in total)

I had a X21 model - smaller bro of X31. My first real digital camera. 37-111mm lens and 2 Mp. Lost it because of too small :).

Oh, those Germans, they prefer metric system

Zdman: Would think it was obvious. A zoom lens essentially magnifies the middle of the field of view so that middle is obviously going to be sharper when it projected over a smaller area than when its stretched. I realise there is more than that going on but from the front elements point of view that is essentially it. The best you can hope for is that the centre is more uniform in sharpness but the middle will always be less sharp on zooming.

You're good

stanislaff: So, one with m4/3 body and F0.95 lens would have the "same" DOF and DR as proud owner of MF Fuji with F2.8 lens? Picturewise, not pixelwise, of course...

Agree, my mistake.

What about APS with F1.4? My Rokinon 55 mm F1.4 behaves like 85mm F1.8-2.0 on my Samsung NX30. Isn't that spot even sweeter?

On article Fujifilm X100F Review (749 comments in total)

Sometimes I think, that there is a good time to replace my Samsung NX30 with newer tech. X-Trans was an option. Key word is "was". I compared RAWs of both Fuji and my Sam and realized, that i do not want colorless, waterpaint, though also noiseless, picture. Moreover, I am convinced, that after proper noise reduction espesially of chroma noise I obtain same-looking muted unsaturated picture.

I do not understand why to cope with Adobe subscription problems when free Rawtherapee is just around the corner.

afm: This software will not open on any of my Windows 10 computers. Got the previous version to work but only after a 120 second startup time! Am I missing something here?

Evidently, yes.

It works for me on three Win10 x64 and one Linux computers.

(unknown member): Do any of you Raw Therapee users know the easy way to darken a blue sky when converting to a black and white?

Plenty of possibilities :)

skanter: Will it do anything significantly better than LR?

I tried all known commercial and free raw converters (thanks to trial verion). Among all of them RT5 and Darktable are the best in terms of demosaicing algorithms and features.

In reply to:

cantanima bis: I'm curious about selective editing; i.e., selecting a region so that changes apply only to that region. It's not in RT 4.x (which I use routinely) and I don't see it listed above. Various versions of it are in pretty much every other software I've used, though (certainly CO, LR, DT, LZ) and I'd find it very useful. Is that contemplated in RT at any point in the future?

There is a fork of RT with local LAB adjustments - I tested it and it worked. However, it is too far from being fully useful. Anyway, the developers promise that in future, maybe in RT6.

It is a great pleasure to see the RT-related news here at DPR.

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (766 comments in total)

The very first my OWN camera back in 1988 was Agat-18k - small Russian APS camera equipped with Industar-104 lens (28mm/2.8) and able to make 72 photos on a standard 35mm film.

My first digital was pocket Minolta Dimage X21, I still remember its specs - 2 Mp, 37-111mm eq. lens. Used it with 128-Mb MMC card.

Hugo808: Good idea, how about a Lego version so you can stick spare lenses and things to it?

Leica is only for serious adult people, so I would suggest Picatinny rails instead of Lego.

Virtually the same IQ as from any other crop 24 Mp camera. Stagnation...
