Samuel C: What?! What has happened to this website? Where are the other video cameras announced recently on this photography site? Canon has some new ones...but I guess 273 PDAF points is revolutionary for Sony? Canon with its measly few million DPAF points.

I'm sure everyone understood but my comment above should have said "show they don't like".

Richard, keep putting up as many video and medium format articles you can. No need sending web traffic to other sites. To placate those who can't turn the channel when a show they like comes on and feel they must boycot the channel altogether, maybe have a separate link to MF and video news so you don't give anyone the vapours by exposing them to the wrong material. Thanks.

I'm on the road Vince. Go ahead and list the one's that aren't. I was being a little quick originally to save time and should have included "or hopelessly corrupt".

And guess what? Most of the UN nations are totalitarian despotisms.

Rick Knepper: I'll take the H6D-100c for $14, 995.

Rick, I've been wanting a Hassy for a few years now. But a unit with the 50 sensor just doesn't make sense for *me* at that price given the alternatives. However, the H6D-100 at $15,000? Yes, that would get me to bite. I do, of course, have a 44" printer (or two). But I get the impression many, if not most, of the posters here only "print" to monitors. So I can understand how for *them* even the 100 sensor seems like a huge, pointless, expense.

ozturert: So, era of 1500+ $ phones is here (except from the "luxury" ones covered with Swarovski crystals).
Can we expect IPhone 9 Plus titanium for 1599$?

If your info is correct weertebos I better start saving that $1,200. Ugh.

Link | Posted on Sep 8, 2017 at 20:40 UTC

So it's $1,200 for aluminum, and $1,600 for titanium for the phone. But this is Red. So how much is the battery pack? The grip? The lens? The sensor? And memory pack? All of which I presume will be sold separately and will be required to enable to thing to take calls and pictures.

;-)

Brandless1: Credit to Fujifilm for bringing back the joy of photography...even simple, mundane shots remains radiantly appealing to the viewer. Colours, crispiness, tones and organic texture of these shots leave a taste of ultimate image quality. Bravo to all those who took part in creating these shots!

Whilst looking at the photos I thought "reminds me of when I used to shoot Velvia". Only reading the comments was I reminded the images were taken with Fuji gear. Makes perfect sense. And believe me when I make clear those were good memories. Velvia was my preferred choice -- back in the 90s+.

You have the right to keep and bear arms. But if a cop thinks you're exercising that right they might shoot you?

Enjoy your laughs. But I'm betting your accomplishments would fit in the corner of Trump's eye by comparison.

Yessss!
This has my interest.
Can't wait until some real-world reviews.

Ebrahim Saadawi: We need a transcript. We need a transcript.

Most of us aren't free enough to watch such a video!

I mean I opened up Dpreview on my phone during my half hour break 5:30 PM, during which, there's a sweet kid and her mom lying on the dental chair right in there!

1-Coffee and read the answers go fill the tooth, cool.
2-Coffee and watch this, then a new coffee, watch more, then I look like a @$$% to my clients, then they leave. not cool!

Great now it's 5:55 and I haven't even finished the coffee typing a comment.

Great post. But I would hate to be your last patient of the day. Your hands are probably shaking from all that caffeine. ;>)

p51d007: Shoot, I just upgraded my trusty old D-5000 after almost 7 years of use, to a D-7200, so I'll say no to that one ;)
Nice camera, but I still have a ton of stuff on the 7200 I haven't learned how to use yet.

Cosmicnode, are you sure you don't have a Hasselblad? My D800 has 51 focus sensor points.

Well I've got a D700, D800, D810, and will be getting a D850, and I shoot in manual most of the time. While I'm not sure I would go so far as to say there are features I don't know how to use, there sure are a lot of features I simply don't, or rarely, use. Yet I find cameras like this compelling (not Nikon in general -- I feel they burned me with the D800 backfocus issue on the left sensor).

shigzeo: Geez, I thought 36 MP was amazing. I know that 46 isn't a massive update, but the file quality looks great.

Geez Shig, he's talking about Brandless. Isn't that obvious?

Oliver Bedford: That's a joke, right?
You can buy adapters for every DSLR out there to "scan" old negatives or transparency.
To classify this as "neat trick" tells a lot about the expertise of the author...

The neat trick discussed is turning, in-camera, a colour negative transparency into a positive file. If your claim is "every" DSLR can do this, name five. Okay, the top three. How about one? Perhaps you didn't understand what the neat trick was when you made your post?

Link | Posted on Aug 24, 2017 at 19:31 UTC

I sure hope this isn't going to be another gadget collecting dust after I inevitably break down and buy it with the D850.
