On article Teardown reveals Sony image sensors in iPhone 7 (162 comments in total)

Kirppu: Sony should stop making cameras and double the price of their sensors.

OK, so at football games they are shooting with Sonys, or maybe that is Canon and Nikon. They do not have IS on sensor. For your info. Leica make long teles for their R8/9. They had front parts and rear parts for different focal lengths. The were MF. The Lens and construction was better the Canon/Nikon, they were AF.
Many a pro in the back bush loved both. The leica lens were tuffer and sharper.
Them pros got pictures from them old lens, without IS.

If you do not understand just looking at the top of any camera and know where you are. You are going to miss shots. The IS is a fine idea. But Lens IS is over all better. Also there is no free lunch. shooting at shutter that is safe for subject, lens and basic camera movement is the better answer. IS has it's points and a PRO can out do it.

I agree with the first part. Look at Fuji/Leica with their up front dials. Even the other companies the use PASM, have a small, but see able LCD to show you the important stuff you need to know. The only thing Sony cameras have going for them are their sensors all else, Playstation. Lens are good, but it is not part of camera control.

km25: That "Red Dot" is so close to rip off of Leica. In the far east Leica are loved. So it will sell there, here?

98% of a Leica ? I really doubt that. It looks like nice little camera, it's main selling point will be the 'Red Dot" for fashion sake.

km25: Also more "air" would lend to a cooler running camera.

Read my original statement, the word is help, not solve. Air flow over a heat sink is a way of removing heat, as in an air cool engine. A large camera with extra air space will run cooler then a small compact camera, producing the same heat. Again it helps.

mmarian: Absolutely mind boggling and fascinating technology!!

It keeps out water, it is not well vented. But some air moves around, the mirror would see to that. Air can go were water cannot. It would help.

It is a phone, not a DSLR. It is the new point and shoot for everyman (women). It is a Brownie Starmite.

I had no idea they were still producing lens. Many of a fine or classic motion picture was shoot using Cooke's lens. These lens are rarely bought, the are rented, as with other movie cameras.

I was happy to have my Nikon F4 and my Leica M4. Film still ruled and it still good.

What fun. Just think how much fun these guys would have filming a thermonuclear detention, or maybe I should not give these two any ideas.

On article Elevating X-Trans? Fujifilm X-T2 First Impressions Review (1298 comments in total)
In reply to:

SkipCycle: So I can save over $750 by buying an X-T1 with the kit lens if I go with an import right now. For someone who wants to step up to a serious enthusiast camera, is this a no brainer? I'm really looking for bang for the buck. Does anyone think the price will go much lower if I wait? I'm currently using an Olympus XZ-2 but definitely ready to move to something significantly better. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

I just bought the XT-2, with grip. I will more then likely keep my old XT-1 as a second body.

Well, I went to the "Nittoh", the names for lens company did look like the names either on my Nikon lens or instruction books of 1960s Nikon lens. Good cameral for the people who use such cameras. Too big and bulky for me, but glade to see old names staying in the race.

One more lens for the Sony 7 series. Yes I know, just could not resist. Peace out.

Guidenet: Yeah, dump the typical DSLR for a Nikon DF or Fuji XPro2 et al. I can wear it with my Faux Giorgio Armani Hong Kong suit and a Bolex wrist watch and really impress the ladies. Hubba hubba! What you wear is more important than the photographs you make. Give me that retro look.

The watch is a Rolex, Bolex was a movie camera.The Fuji is a fine camera, with great lens.If you do not like camera OK, but the camera is not a joke, it is a fine piece of photographic tool. With use and purpose. Life you should get.

The Nikon 105mm f2.5, that was a very sharp lens. This lens looks to be well make, at least in performance. I had a Leica R8 and there 100mm 2.8 micro. I had a picture very close to one you have here. I feel as if the Leica lens was sharper and had better out of focus the this lens, but not a great deal. seems like a nice lens. But so may companies are producing good lens now a days

km25: Digital maybe able come to rescue, a small sensor , maybe one inch. It would be a camera, to make a picture of a forcing screen. It would be in a light tight box. This would give the photographer a good idea of what they are working with.

You be getting a a small dig camera to make like image off a forcing screen, it would working being at "B" then you take your image. It be cal. to give you image and exposure of film, buy worki with the system to cal..it. English enough. You get or no.
