LJ - Eljot: Given how bad the liveview in Nikon cameras is, it is hard to imagine that they could actually build a ILC. On the other hand, they had the 1 series with prettey good AF.

I get your point, but that is an argument againt MILCs in general. But if you make one, liveview better has to be good, because display and EVF (also a display) is all you have. Just imagine a MILC with a livewiew like in a Nikon DSLR. No one would buy it.

You did not understand. A MILC without good liveview would be a very bad camera because there is no other way to see what you will shoot than liveview. And nikon DSLRs are famous for their very bad liveview. Some models can not even change the aperture while in liveview. But the have proven with the Nikon 1 series that they can do better.

What? No. But a MILC with bad liveview would really be a very bad camera.

Of course MILCs, the kind of camera the article is about.

Albert Valentino: Makes me feel good a about still using 2013 technology in the form of a Olympus EM1 mark i. I do not shoot video and shoot mostly at ISO 200, rarely going over ISO 800. So no plans to upgrade. These days itโ€™s really okay for most of enthusiasts to skip a generation of technology, especially if you are happy with the results your getting ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

The E-M5 is 1.5 y older and is basicly the same as the E-M1 in IQ. The E-M1 has other advantages though.

Both shot at f/5.6 and 1/40 s at 12800 ISO, but one with 43.27mm image circle and one with 21.6mm. The GH5s is shot with a much higher debth of field.

chaos215bar2: Nice marketing blurb. Now, why would I buy this when I could have an *actual* 5k, 16:9 monitor, with greater than 4k resolution both horizontally *and* vertically?

Seems like it would be nice to have room for things like, I don't know, the menu bar and/or taskbar next to the 4k footage I'm supposedly going to be editing at native resolution.

But the question is still, why would it be wise to choose a monitor wich height matches the heght of the video one would edit rather than a monitor wich has a bit more height. Menu bars, progression bars, infos at the bottom of the screen, etc.

dgumshu: So with respect to photography and gear, what does this really mean?

Really? Or will a 100mm lens be a 100mm long tube with a metalens at one end a bajonet at the other?

Doug Pardee: Card reader (p.7)? Most computers already have an SDHC slot. Yeah, if you don't have an SDHC slot, or if you're using SDXC (cards holding more than 32 GB) and your computer slot can't handle them, then a card reader is probably a good idea.

I'm not a fan of card readers for CF cards because of the risk of bending/breaking pins in the camera when reinserting. However, there's about zero chance a beginner has a CF-card camera, and bent pins aren't an issue with SD/SDHC/SDXC cards.

Since editing software was mentioned (p.12), I think a monitor calibration system should have been highly recommended. Editing on an uncalibrated monitor is a good way to end up with messed-up pictures.

And why does it have to be external? I have always got an internal card reader in my desktop computer.

PhotoKhan: Blue/purple/cyan tints galore.

I have downloaded the raw too and opened it with Capture One and found that the version PhotoKahn presented here is pretty much the default output. If I set it to Daylight it gets much more blueish. Using Eizo ColorEdge. Wich one I like better I have not decided yet.

In reply to:

LJ - Eljot: According to Ansel Adams it is necessary to use a view camera for landscapes. Not only for the resolution but for the adjustments that can be made with an view camera only.

If the adjustment of a view camera were unnesessary with digital technology, why are tilt-shift-lenses still in use?

That is right, but even today would a view camera with a digital back be the thing I would choose for landscape if it were not so insanly expensive.

Jorginho: I guess Fuji GFX and Hasselblad X1D never really happened after all? Or Pentax 645Z.

The best for landscape would be a view camera with phase one 100MP back.

In reply to:

LJ - Eljot: No, defenitly not a Nikon 5xxx or 3xxx camera. As a student you are likely on a budged and will chase ebay and local stores for used lenses. There are tonns of good AF-lenses from the 90th wich are inexpensive but will not autofocus with those cameras. At least buy a 7xxx camera!

How should that work?

In reply to:

Ebrahim Saadawi: If I am looking for the 50mm f/1.4 "look" with AF for the least money, I'll get a 300$ Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 AF-D, or a 400$ Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM and if I wanted high-end optics I'd go for the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART (just 250$ more). But, this is just a no sale, great resolution even wide open and great contrast but the bokeh and CA and whole look is just, off.

Maybe as a special look for video...

The 50mm f/1.4 G if the D has no AF-Motor and will not autofocus with any adapter or Nikon cameras of the 3xxx and 5xxx series.

LJ - Eljot: A4? A4 is not a ratio, A4 is a particular size. It is 297mm by 420mm. A3 and A5, even B4 and C4, all the DIN-series sizes have the same ratio. The ratio is allways approximatly 1:sqrt(2).
US letter is also not a ratio but a certain size. It is 8,5" by 11", wich is a ratio of 17:22.

Schape or ratio is the same in this context because we can assume the crop will be rectangular. The ratio is the same that a DIN A4 sheet has, but also any other DIN series format. May be bit pedantic.
