  • If he was shooting in Program mode, my guess is JPEG ;)

  • And you are basing this on...? Does this apply to all forms of production? Is it as true for socks, as for memory chips, as for paper books ordered from a publisher, as for gasoline, as for ...
  • So basically... it doesn't matter what she's using. Just shoot RAW and learn how to achieve a look you like in post. There are numerous film emulators out there, SilverEfx is even free these days.
  • You have got to be kidding. Just getting more processing onto the circuit boards -- e.g. reducing the amount of wiring in the camera, as we can see -- requires more miniaturization. Egads Yes, the ...
  • Sure. 1DXII body new = $6000 list a9 body new plus batt grip = $4850 To start with, we still don't know the composition of the cost of these cameras, and what part manufacturing is. My guess is ...
  • sigh I'm not disputing his claims about the number of parts, or ease of repair. I'm pointing out that simply because you have fewer parts, it does not follow that there is a massive difference in ...
  • Yes, I realized that after writing the post. My bad.
  • Being an expert in repair and rental means he is... an expert in repair and rentals. The article is a teardown. He's focusing on taking the camera apart fully. In that article, he isn't talking ...
  • IBIS. The sensor moves in incredibly small increments, and it's more difficult to draw the resulting heat off the sensor. The fact that IBIS is smaller does not mean it is less complex (or cheaper). ...
  • lol I don't claim to know everything. What I do know is that almost all of the costs are the same, and that manufacturing costs have been shrinking for years. sigh Less parts means a reduction in ...
  • Doh.... I missed that part. My faith in humanity is restored. Partially. ;-)
  • Oooookay... All he did was demonstrate that it had fewer parts, and was easier to repair. Neither of which I disputed. Oooookay... I did not say they were identical. I'm saying they are very similar. ...
  • The part where you assume he knows every single cost to design, assemble, inventory, distribute, market, advertise and warranty an entire camera line. Cicla founded LensRentals. By definition, he ...
  • T3 is also engaging in idle speculation. Any plans to go after him, too? Actually, from a manufacturing perspective, they're quite similar. DSLRs have more parts (due to the mirror box), but ...
  • Uh huh Cicla is coming at it from a repair perspective, and claiming that the simplification makes his job easier. However, screws are cheap to buy, and cheap to install. It makes the camera harder ...
  • OK, I'm reading more of it now. He claimed in the article that "ether" is faster than light. The guy is obviously selling snake oil. According to current theories, nothing can go faster than c in a ...
  • I know those older lenses. I don't have that experience. Nor am I impressed when every side-by-side example I've seen doesn't prove what is claimed. For example, the Olympus 14-42mm kit lens has 8 ...
  • "Fewer parts" is not necessarily the same as "more efficient" and does not guarantee "lower costs," as the resulting parts can certainly be more complex, require higher tolerances, cost more per ...
  • Replied in LX100
    If you have to ask.... I wouldn't worry about it, unless you shoot a lot of low light and/or print bigger than 11" x 14." It's nice. The lens has a good look, though it's a bit prone to flare. It's ...
  • Yes, that's my point They're worried about people spending hours playing Candy Crush on their smartphones. Not EVFs.
