On article Canon EOS 5D Mark IV added to studio scene comparison (140 comments in total)
In reply to:

tonkis: incredible, 5D mk IV just become a bit closer to sony a7r2, but doubt is it ahead. Actually expected more. And considering the lunch price of 5D mk IV, I guess after the official deep review - rapidly the canon rebate actions will be initiated.

update: after look at raw, it seems much bigger improvement. So why jpeg so poorly look for 5D mk IV?

Because Canon knows its target group

Impressive (the fact that tech-freaks cannot understand photographers and the 5D series success)

PanchoVilla: This looks like a big DSLR dinosaur! I'll take my Fuji X camera which has all the modern technology plus the awesome X-Trans sensor any day!

I very much like illusions

On article Real world test: The Panono is a 108MP spherical camera (146 comments in total)
In reply to:

Roland Karlsson: This is a very difficult gadget to make into something that has high quality. For several reasons.

1. The lenses are on the surface of a sphere. They should have the same entrance pupil. Which is impossible. Therefor it is impossible (without some serious rendering) to stich nearby objects at the same time as far away objects. Which can be seen in several images.

2. There is a lot of cameras. They have to be small and cheap. So - true - they are stitched together making it higher resolution. But - small sensors and small lenses have problems. No matter how many they are. Clipping, blooming, etc. In particular since they have to be cheap.

3. How to keep it clean and scratch free?

So, the conclusion is that it is a toy.

@nitroman: I've heard several "end of story" 's.

It seems that 22 (at least) persons have already sold their Hasselblad X1D.

In reply to:

Omexis: They must be operating their cameras at a loss. I appreciate their commitment but Foveon is a loss product.

How this can be a "loss product". It needs some R&D for better low light performance and low priced cameras.

In reply to:

TonyTguy: For the same money it makes no sense to buy the D500 over the D750

The D500 needs to be a $1,600 body tops if not $1,400. A tweak to drop all body prices at least $100 to make it just enticing enough to decide crop sensor vs FF

@tony: Since you are able to say whatever you want here, let me say whatever I want too: Did you spend a lot of time for this analysis?

In reply to:

andrewsf: I'll probably cop some flak for this but I'm quite unimpressed with these. I shoot motocross quite a bit with a 7D and yeah, it's hard to photograph well, but these are not that great.

This does make me feel better about my 7D though, which I generally don't care for. Seems it's not as awful as I thought :P

Lucky you

KL Matt: Ricoh's Pentax Renaissance (so far): bump up sensor size of Q system. Intro true flagship APS/C model with class-leading IQ. Launch entry-level DSLR. Create outstanding mid-range model that catches up to the rest of the world with flip screen and wifi. Release updated 645 with unmatched IQ and even video. Launch new full-frame 135-format flagship with best-in-class IQ. Release full line of professional f/2.8 FF zooms. Make all the above the best value-for-money available. Check, check, check, check, check, check, check and check. All this in in just 5 years people. I think we can safely say Pentax is back.

Let's keep our hopes

Dear DPR... Is it possible for you to do a handheld test of the pixelshift? Using the standard lab sceen?

While all of these are well said I dissagree about your last statement. Pentax will be back only when customers will put their money on its products.

In reply to:

endofoto: This is not what lab results tell us. D500 is not superior to d7200 in terms of high ISO and quality. You can only achieve better high ISO performance than most of the FF cameras with Fuji multi-layer sensor. Dont be fooled with these processed jpeg images, I can take better images with 300$ D3200 with higher megapixels. The same photo of the parasailing guy can be taken with iphone.

What are you talking about?
