marcio_napoli: In no way I'm saying Mr. Wong's images here aren't beyond AMAZING. They are, and of course no one is gonna challenge that. (those below saying it doesn't impress are envious or whatever).

But at the same time, I feel I must add a third POV, one that isn't just praise, or being envious.

These images are fabulous work of art, but I can't help saying they work the way they do because of Mr. Wong's target market (which appreciates the style), and because it was done right (from a production value POV - Hawaii, lava flows, enough crew, enough lighting, enough time, etc).

Not in a million years trying to compare my work to his, but once as a beginner (3 years career back then), I did something quite similar on a rocky landscape, querosene , torches, and a model.

That shooting has stayed on my portfolio for many years.

No one cared among all my clients (wrong target market), but results were far from bad.

In fact, they were quite good, given the many limitations we've had that day.

Sorry, trying to understand what are you trying to say?

Ben, you are truly inspiring are inspiring me! You are not posting a new (same as a ton of other existing inages) image every day on Instagram, but when you share something it is of highest quality. Well done, Ben!

The camera is 1year old, I think. Tech is developing and changing very fast these days and 1 year from now it will not offer the best capabilities out there and will be beaten fair and square by Fuji and Sony new releases. Strange to only offer a paint job upgrade for 600$ 1 year after the camera is released. 4250$ is not a totally insane price overall if we are talking a camera that will last a decade, but it will not be the case tech wise. I was considering, but it is just too much money for something that will become obsolete very fast.

Generally, I could afford Leica...but cannkt justify it. Do not get it totally. Maybe one day if I am super rich, I will try...

On article Hands-on and in-depth with the Sony a6500 (545 comments in total)

I am very sorry, folks, not a troll:-) I am a Canon guy...using 5D MKIII. For some reason I think people that bought a6300 would be happy to know that there is the a6500 coming. Is it easy to understand the lineup of Sony and the update/release cycle?

I am not a Sony user, but I read most photography news. It feels like Sony is updating cameras every 6-12 months. What is the difference between a6300 and 6500?

padang: I don't get it.

What is the point of a larger sensor which gives you 1 extra stop of light vs fullframe, but the lensea are 1 stop slower ?

Good question. I have no knowledge, but have the same question myself. Why no f1.4 lenses?

Link | Posted on Sep 20, 2016 at 09:02 UTC

I have Sigma 35 Art. Have mixed feelings. It has a great IQ, busy bokey and I do not always trust the AF on my 5D MKIII. I was using Zeiss 35 previously and used to have issues with nailing the focus. I REALLY want a top notch 85 mm lens for portraits, REALLY-REALLY want....but I am not sure I want to trust the AF of a lens that is not designed by Canon.

On article Striding Forth: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Review (2010 comments in total)

Not bad, but nothing major. Great too see a DR imrovement from Canon, but it is still 1 stop behind D810 besides being a much newer camera. Also the resolution is behind D810. I guess Nikon is still the camera for landscapes. Good perspective for the 5Ds MKII:-)

Dan Donovan: I remember when Apple moved from the old iPhone connector to Lightning. People complained. Who out there wants to go back to old one now? We should be thankful companies innovate instead of coming out with one product and quitting.

It is not the same. In yoir example, it was simplification, but here is adding complexity. You will need to use an adaptor. What kind of innovation is it?

Why Apple calls it waterproof if they will not replace a water damaged phone?

vscd: If the iphone is that good, it will sell by itself. If not, it needs advertisement (rule of the market). This artice reads like advertisements ;)

Fully agree!

A really weird article. Looks like a cheap advertisement. Nothing against Apple, I am using an iPad, an iPhone and a MBP. But....a very strange way to advertise a phone that is as good as many other phones. I get it, the KPI is the engagement rate and indeed, there are many comments.

Wanted to say I am surprised how many negative comments are there, but the truth is, it is not surprising. No matter what this camera is capable of, forums will be full of negative comments. But I am 100% certain this camera is going to sell like crazy. I used to have 5D MKII and now have a MKIII. Not into video at all, but it looks like it is a very capable camera. Personally, I will wait for the DR and ISO analysis. If it is not a super massive game changer, I will wait for the 5Ds MKII:-) But Canon is certainly doing a phenomenal job, especially with lenses.

agaoo: It really looks good, I'm drooling but I don't think it's worth paying almost double the price of SONY A6300. Most features are similar to A6300 while Fuji's body looks more robust and design is sexy. Sony has better lens choices. I can't decide :-(

Now you really shocked me. Sony has better lens choices?

I was waiting for 2 years for this camera, but for some reason I am not over the moon. It is nice, for sure. I need to see the quality of RAW files and will decide based on IQ. Why folks are so excited about the joystick? I have in Canon for many years

Interested in pure IQ of the RAW file. Is there a comparison somewhere vs class leading sensors in a DSLR format?
