OlavM: Sensor size M E T R I C
(do you read, DPR?)

Europe is M E T R I C , remember?
(-with one exception: England. They've been on the move to metric for some years now. US is rumored coming after, or am I misinformed on that one? What says the Don ...)

Yes, the users of metric units out there adds up to more than a billion (probably billions). Amongst these, a number as large as millions may be more or less frequent readers of DPR! Wow!
Huh, not aware, you say?
(sorry, don't believe for a second)
Anyway, the lack of M E T R I C S used for sensor sizes, is disrespectful, all the time this has been on heavy demand, for QUITE a number of years now! In fact, the lack of M E T R I C S is a tiny bit disgraceful against the intellect of these millions of readers. This for Your information.

genrxr, he is trying to say that using imperial format for describing sizes is not good, or at least they should write out metric values as well.

from article:
...1/2.8" to 1/2.56".

J A C S: I did not see anywhere mentioning of the actual number of pixels, which is 100mp.

" When not being used in multi-shot mode, the camera acts just like a H6D-100c, so it can be used normally too."

And in official release statement
"With an effective resolution of 400MP via 6 shot image capture, or 100MP resolution in either 4 shot Multi-Shot capture or single shot mode,...."

brn: To each his own, but I didn't like it.

The boxes detract from the photo. We didn't really get to see the photos all that well, maybe because they're not that good? The few we do see (link to article) aren't very good.

I give her credit for doing what Volvo wanted her to do. She probably did better than I could. Still don't like it.

Well, she is having an exhibition with the photos and i guess that is why those photos are not part of the video, why let people see them here instead of going to the exhibition...

Eh, graphite body color also. A nice case as well.

evogt500: Am I the only one that wishes these companies would make smaller phones like the older iPhone 4s?

Well, the iPhone 5 SE is a great choice in that case. The same speed as the 6s.

bogdescu: I forgot one crucial question:
If someone gives you an USB drive, where do you stick it?
Right into Apple's innovative ports?
Just asking.

It´s like people complaining that there are no CD/DVD drives anymore in many computers, well that is because people are using USB instead.

Now people start to complain about lack of USB-A, well that is because there is an better usb-c standard that is making it´s way into the machines.

Someone had to be the first to implement "all ports " as USB-C and it was Apple, the rest will follow, so just gt an adapter and deal with it, you will at least have the possibility then to use older stuff for a while more.

On article Nikon Small World 2016 winners announced (18 comments in total)
In reply to:

duchamp: Interestingly, most pictures if not all were not made with Nikon lenses. I don't get why would Nikon make such a competition if they don't produce neither lenses with more than a life size magnification nor bellows.

They were probably taken with Nikon microscopes, that is a kind of lens as well if you attach the camera to it.

On article Teardown reveals Sony image sensors in iPhone 7 (199 comments in total)
In reply to:

cosinaphile: from forbes..

"But two nasty surprises have been discovered which may cause owners of the iPhone 7 to regret their purchase…
Apple has ditched its premium sapphire glass both the new home button & lens:

The revelation comes after JerryRigEverything used tools to determine makeup of surfaces on the Mohs’ scale of mineral hardness. Previously his tests on the iPhone 6S confirmed the presence of sapphire, but this time both the new home button and larger camera of the iPhone 7 scratched easily using picks that do not damage sapphire.
He concludes: “we know for sure that it is regular glass and not sapphire.”

And here’s where it gets interesting, Apple still advertises that both the iPhone 7 &iPhone 7 Plus as using sapphire ( considerably more expensive than toughened glass) on the home button & camera lens. Given the new iPhones are marketed as more durable than ever this would be a major let down. I have put these claims to Apple will update when/if the company responds."

HenryDJP, maybe not, but it could build up to an class action/lawsuit where people might say their phones "glass" has been scratched to easily while it was advertised as sapphire, but turned out to be glass.

wgravesphoto: Glad to see Adobe is on top of new phone releases... But not the 5D Mark IV....

The beta release cycle for iOS 10 has been ongoing for a long time. I have been part of it since beta 1.
Maybe that is not the case for the new cameras that are released from different brands.

JoachimStrobel: The sensor specs for all sensors except IPhone 7/7s indicate that they only can capture in sRGB.

I guess that is only true for Jpg format.

Chris Noble: These two photos are clearly a stride apart, not shot at "nearly identical" times as your writer suggests. You can see that the runner in blue in the back has moved significantly relative to the pack.

Karroly, With my 8 fps in my D300, i have no problems shooting of a series of photos of horses running and get the very same positions of the horses legs.
It is all about timing. You can also see the white light (as an while line) in the background. It has moved between the shots, also the sand in the background that is used for long jumps (i guess) have moved.

They are probably just timed with the movements of the runners positioning.

On article Throwback Thursday: when studio lenses retire (205 comments in total)

My 50mm f1/8D feels nicer to use than my 50mm f1/4G lens. I like that mechanical sound and it also feels that the f1/8D focuses faster than then f1/4G on my D300.

Tieu Ngao: I'm still debating on when I should buy a 4K TV because:
- OLED 4K is currently the best but it's still expensive and the blue pixel longevity is still an issue,
- 4K materials are scarce and expensive, 4K streaming requires higher speed of internet, and other accessories need to be upgraded,
- HDR is not standardized
- don't know what to do with my old collections of DVD and Blu-ray.

Old DVD ad Blu-Ray collection will not stop working because you get an 4K TV...

Wow, that one is quite cool. I wonder about possible ways of attaching it to your body, such as we do with GoPro:s?

Couscousdelight: usb2 in 2015 ?
Seriously Nikon ?

ewelch: So you are done with nikon because they are releasing an camera wit h specs you do not like. Does the introduction of this new camera autmatically make you take bad picturs with you existing gear? What about the day you would buy one of those new cameras such as the D7200, would you automatically start to take bad images because of that?
People are acting quite strange in here, almost every new camera released is often better than previous generation, still we complain about the cameras.

Is it that you envy peoply using other brands wher they might have some high tech cool feature that makes you feel smaller?
