Weia: These lenses are for full frame?

@ProfHankD, I was hoping they might listen, so that's encouraging to hear. One voice is of course irrelevant, so I'm posting this in a hope to find like-minded others to voice up.
A niche lens to be sure, but that is exactly what they are doing.

Weia: These lenses are for full frame?

I recently contacted Venus Optics with a suggestion of what might be my dream lens (as I cannot afford the Entaniya HAL 220 https://products.entaniya.co.jp/en/products/hal-220/ ): a scaled-up to full frame version of Laowa 4mm 210° fisheye. That comes to about 10mm and will give a full circle on GFX "medium format", cropped top-bottom circle on full frame and diagonal on APS-C with still more than 180° diagonal coverage. Combine that with stereographic projection, and I am their customer (although, again, odds are high that I'll not be able to afford it either). https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/40c174e8725a5ef457de7fc9176f76b6dde185ab36c4e0fc1b6f21f400541b43.jpg

mferencz: Nikon is the only camera maker that gets speculation articles here and rumor posts. Not a good thing, speaks to blah with what already exists.

It was exactly the situation with Canon here lately.

In reply to:

Jon Jon: So it’s heavier than the A7, A7s, sigma FP, canon RP and other cameras. It has a smaller grip than the A6600.
If you use a large lens several people pointed out you need to use two hands (left hand holds the lens) even though most larger cameras you can comfortably use just one.

IMHO it’s more of a gadget than a camera. So many here have talked about the features it is lacking. And in the real world it won’t be near as useful as people think. It won’t fit in a pocket. You need two hands to use it. The VF is not good at all and the LCD isn’t any better.

Nikon Z6 fits in my pocket fine... Don't think this is much larger. I wear a vest when out shooting. (Actually, I wear it daily).

Edymagno: Do the camera screen (other than flip) rotates to enable easy vertical still shooting?

Thanks! :) Don't know if I need a 1-inch camera, but at lest it makes this one stand out (for my purposes).

That's the only thing that interests me about this camera.

Mikhail Konovalov: At least they don't call them disciples or something. Oh wait, they do. A series of short instructional videos presented by a "Photoshop evangelist".

I don't use Lightroom but I do use ACR, same thing minus the cataloging tools that I don't need. Just can't stand the marketing parlance.

Thanks, didn't know that! Actually, it occured to me while typing, in terms of it being semantically legitimate. Still, for an exterritorial non-native speaker, you know... :)

UlrichSchiegg: What a discussion on a not released, not tested product.

And how many articles about it in the recent few days. 'Rumor' sites publish less.

dash2k8: How do 7 people already own this camera? (In the "I own it/I want it/I had it" check box above)

Might have been meant idiomatically. As in "I've had it with this camera" :)

I wish they let the 10.5mm fisheye to be used in FX mode as on my D750. Mine's up for sale now just because it can't be even hacked into an FX lens. I know we aren't many, but let's voice up. Who knows, maybe they'll listen.

Pritzl: The obvious question is: why not just create a view option to display the same film info (with appropriate black borders) on a regular screen that articulates properly? You still get the nostalgia but save money on the dual screens and avoid the "quirky" label.

Fully articulated screen, problem solved. Could even put this memo screen on its back if they must. Guess that wouldn't be fancy enough though.

Nostalgia and quirkiness go well together. To a point where quirkiness is considered a virtue and is enjoyed.

On article Best enthusiast long zoom cameras in 2021 (261 comments in total)

The term "articulating" as used to describe the RX10 IV's LCD appears misleading. It only pivots around one axis. Normally, "articulation" is used to describe a bit more than one (limited) degree of freedom, which renders the term used as a weasel-word.

EthanP99: A guy just posted in a photo facebook group with 48,000 members... "does anyone shoot with a nikon z6 or z7?" no answer for 1 hour :O Nikon might be in trouble.

They all might have been out shooting. Like I was.

Would have to be kickstarted for that.

El Jeffe: This will be great when phone cameras can do it in real time. A lot of young people are having problems with their self esteem because they see the "selfy" distortion and think that is how they really look.

Gotta be mirrorless by today's standards.

In reply to:

(unknown member): The Fujifilm 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ Lens is also a fun little lens.
It is wider than 16mm or 18mm and also small. It is great for casual photography.

And it's surprisingly very good optically, too, in case someone is not practically familiar with it. Far from your ordinary "kit lens" we're all used to.

Keyboq: Is that how you use a tilt lens?

It's the opposite of it, actually.
