On article OWC's Thunderbolt 3 Dock adds 13 ports to your MacBook (146 comments in total)

So... you're giving $300 to another company for what Apple basically took away from you? Go on, keep praising Apple...

tom1234567: £2000 For a camera with a sensor ! quarter size of FF

its beyond ridiculous you can buy a FF cheaper.
I find it hard to believe anyone would buy this CR-PPY SENSOR CAMERA
are Olympus in Dream Land Or what

You can buy the new Fuji X-T2 AND THE 18-55 LENS FOR £1649 AAND have £350 change from your two grand.
sorry for ranting but I just don't no how Olympus came up with such a RIP OFF PRICE

Tom G

We're way past the point of asking whether or not the camera has a full frame sensor, but we're also past the point where we can expect a serious camera if it has a full frame sensor. Yes, you can buy a D750 for that price, but what if for example you want to actually take advantage of the crop factor and speed? Slap on a 300 or 400 mm on any 4/3 body and you have a wonderful combo for birds and sports in daylight. I'm not a 4/3 fan, but I'd take this any day over a low/mid end FF.

disasterpiece: Seriously, Apple, how hard would've been to keep the F row and place the display thingy above it? I'm not buying this stuff anyway, I'm just baffled.

@jaykumarr I'm a programmer and I use the F row pretty often.

disasterpiece: Save for the display, this looks similar to an iMac - overpriced, compromised hardware.

@nicolaiecostel If he didn't buy the GPU from HP, it's totally expected that it may not fit - branded cases are often very tight. With a little research, you can build yourself a PC from scratch and it will be comparable to a branded one for less money. Of course if you're not comfortable with that, you're practically paying for someone else to do that for you.

@nicolaiecostel Mobile hardware in a desktop computer. Even if they did put a desktop CPU in it (confirmation of which I could not find), it will throttle at continuous full load. Moreover $4200 can buy you much more - probably a six core i7 and the equivalent desktop class GPU. I'd only agree that the display is kind of special.

JJ Rodin: How in the world is this thing cooled !!!!? I assume piping and the case itself is the heat sink, but will it be used to keep coffee warm too ? ;)

Lots of $$, would buy one fabulous desktop that would beat this if the correct GPU chosen & lovely large display.

But impressive nonetheless !!!

I bet it throttles at 50% load or more.

halc: Beautiful. Finally something new. A giant tablet + stylus + desktop pc + 4k+ 10-bit calibated DCI-P3 display + GPU acceleration.

Desktop PC, but with ifs.

there are plenty FF cameras that are better more affordable than this 99

Let's not forget that the D810 is two and a half years old.

I'm curious about the raw buffer depth. It'd be kind of useless if it shoots 15 images and halts.

On article Got Reach? Tamron SP 150-600mm F5-6.3 G2 sample gallery (102 comments in total)

How does this compare to the Nikon 200-500 f/5.6? At which point in the focal length does the aperture drop to 6.3?

Thoughts: I am a little uncomfortable that they didn't think it was a liberated Japan.

A beautiful piece of work though. Much prettier than any today's Nikon DSLR.

'Pretty' is always a matter of taste. I won't care how ugly you consider the D5 if you hand me one.

disasterpiece: Still waiting for a DX tele zoom. Are they going to at least try answering Sigma's 50-100 or they're going to pretend that they haven't released the D500?

I'm sure that any 70-200 f/2.8 (or even any of the old 80-200 models) stands in its own right, but the 50-100 is 1 1/3 stops faster even if it lacks VR. Plus it costs half of what the new 70-200 will retail for. There's also the 18-35 which is also a 1.8. There's the Tokina 14-20 f/2. My point is that Nikon is kind of missing multiple opportunities.

Whatever you tell it to do from the camera settings.

Because yeah, of course you need 500+ W of power.

In reply to:

Henry Alekna Photography: If you take off the cost of a monitor like this from the price, the 4K iMac seems like quite a good deal!

Mediocre specs with a decent display - if that's what you're looking for, go for it.

In reply to:

digidog: The last attribute photographers need in a display is HDR! Not if they want to soft proof output to a print. The contrast ratio's are far too high as they are. Few displays provide internal calibration over the contrast ratio too. Stick with Eizo, NEC SpectraView.

You're looking at a completely different price point with Eizo and NEC. Benq have a 32" 4K IPS retailing for around 900 EUR. If this one is priced similarly, there's simply no point in comparing it with these other two brands.

zakaria: Shooting at 1:1 crop mode is a great addition.
Thanks Ricoh.I use pentax dslr since 2008 I never got an update from Pentax that add some features except this new firmware.
All pentax firmware updates were to enhance general stability.

How is it a "great addition"? Yeah, it might be nice, but all you're gaining with this is a few saved megabytes per frame at the expense of possibly accidentally cropping something out.
