@Percival Merriwether I didn't know cats could draw.

On article Leica TL2 first impressions (369 comments in total)

Mike Johnston over at TOP says the TL2 is a copy of the Japanese NEX 7. Hows that for turnabout?

On article Throwback Thursday: Canon IXUS 50 / SD400 Digital ELPH (64 comments in total)

Cool, I had a canon point and shoot years ago and liked it, an A3... or something... and I really liked it, tho' it wasn't' so svelte as this ixus... does canon make something roughly like it now, really compact etc? Thanks :-)
Edit: I like that it had a little viewfinder, more like a little window :-P but that made it pretty useful to me.... Unless I'm wrong I think canon stopped making any with that type of viewfinder.

Assuming there are no decentered lenses? There must be one heck of an algorithm to correct for up to 16.

In reply to:

solarider: This is perhaps the most interesting image so far (moving sequentially from first place and looking through to here).
It leaves more questions unanswered than answered.
Is she wearing a gauze or something sheer over face and neck?
Is there something used to cover the skin to keep from the burning sun? What did she use? Intriguing, lovely face.

Must be much more to the story of Thanaka from an herbal and historical view as well.
Congrats again on your fine image.
Best Wishes.

I'm looking forward to the completed review. Thank you, everyone, at DPReview for your great work. :-)

Pretty much most of all of movies, TV, advertising and more is made-up bits and pieces of unreality.

Didn't Sir S pen "All the world's a stage"?

Why now to take yourself so seriously? ;-P

On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2732 comments in total)

Nice info!
I'd like to compare with Pentax K-1, but don't see K-1 in the drop down menus.
Thanks.

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta's prosumer DiMAGE 7 (209 comments in total)
In reply to:

DigitalMission: My first digital camera! Took it on a trip to Thailand and loved it right away. Then in 2004 I got a 'dream job' of being the Stills Photographer for a movie, End of the Spear. [digitalmission.us/SpearStory1.html] I also used a film camera for this, but the SILENCE of the DiMage 7i was necessary and worked great. Only 5mp but shot raw and looked pretty good back in the day. Funny thing is... I now live in Thailand and do projects for NGO's and Mission groups with a somewhat similar camera: Lumix FZ1000: 25-400, f2.8-4 that I also love. AMAZING 5-axis video camera, which is what I use it for mostly.

Now if Panasonic and other makers would simply implement manual zoom, they'd be on a roll... maybe they don't because they don't want to bump their ILC's?

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta's prosumer DiMAGE 7 (209 comments in total)

I've often wondered why the modern all in one type super zoom cameras didn't use a manual zoom. Seeing this on this older Minolta tells a lot in how they were thinking like and for photographers. I still have a Minolta film camera from the late 80's.
I miss you guys, Minolta.

On article Sony a9: more speed, less dynamic range (666 comments in total)

The great crew at DPR do it again. Good detective work.
If you want a fast shootin' big file/high ISO camera, this might do it for a few.

For a $2000 cam, the Pentax K1 isn't something to look down your nose and for the money savings either. Great for slower shooting, landscapes, etc.
'Nuf said.

Good start so far, thanks for the initial info and pics.

Can you spoil us a bit and let us know whether the 12 mpx sensor does indeed improve the image? I imagine that it would, but what the hay :-)
