  • "Newer FF lenses are designed with 100 MP resolution in mind." Hm. I appreciate that the lens designer had such resolutions in mind, but the lenses need to perform in reality. On a D810, the best...

  • It`s my understanding, so I read on any given test institution, that the Pocket Wizard approach is identical to Profoto`s, not to Elinchrom`s Hi-Sync...

  • I guess it is save to assume that you get plenty of power in Hi-Sync, since Elinchrom`s approach to this technology is pretty unique, and very different compared to Profoto`s or Pocket Wizard`s...

  • Commented on article Leica SL Review

    I did a 1-day side-by-side real-life test/ comparison last December with a Leica SL (24-90mm lens) and a Sony A7RII with the 24-70mm G-Master lens. I found that, during buffer clearance at the SL,...

  • Commented on article Leica SL gallery update

    I agree entirely, it`s about the image. And 1) the SL is available, what makes you think this camera were not? - and 2) the image quality of the Leica SL with the 24-90mm attached is very...

  • Commented on article Leica SL gallery update

    The Leica SL, just as the other product made and handled by Leica`s professional business unit, the Leica S, is made in Germany, with no Panasonic input whatsoever. Please contact Mr Mr Stephan...

  • Yes, ALPA is in business, better than ever. They offer, in cooperation with Phase One, the Phase One A-Series camera. Other than that they make a fine range of technical view cameras. ALPA is a...

  • Sorry, but this is not true. According to the experts from Swiss camera maker ALPA, distortion correction via software leeds to no visible loss of sharpness if the lens`resolution is high enough....

  • When I want to take pictures of people in public places, let`s say in public parks, on crowded markets, or on places where people spend their free time, they don`t always react friendly- depending...

  • I would never call any of them superior to the other- it`s totally up to your style of camera use, which camera is better than the other. As I said before: If it`s quality that I want, I use my...

  • Electronic shutter is not always an issue, so I`d say testing before guessing. The AF performance looks extremely good and capable to my eyes. I mean, I covered the Swiss Motocross Championships...

  • Well said. It`s up to personal taste and budget. 80% of my daily work I do with Phase One IQ250 on an XF, or a RZ67 or mostly on a technical view camera. Still, those rare situations when I do...

  • Oh really? Wrong. The D500 is an amazing camera for sure. It`s limited to 10fps and doesn`t have the same enormous speed and performance of the Oly. It`s UHD video is around 120 Mb/s, so 50% of the...

  • I don`t understand all those complaints, for example, regarding sensor size. Sure you can increase it- and then you will hear people complaining "what a bad camera, now it`s not as small as a MFT...

  • Just a few remarks after having played with the X1D on Photokina last Thursday. The camera is a beauty. But ergonomics / touch & feel were not so great, at least not for my hands- but this is a...

  • Don`t connect the term "medium format" to a specific hardware format. If that were correct, than "full format" (as it is called in German, meaning full frame) were larger than "medium format"....

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    I just read the K1 review of a major German institution, reviewing electronics, cameras, computers. According the their review, the K1`s AF-C capabilities- both speed and tracking accuracy, is only...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Well, regarding AF accuracy I was told that the AF of the K3II were, thanks to a new algorythm, maybe a wee bit slower than the AF of competitors like Nikon`s D7200 or Canon 7D, but around 20% more...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    I`ve been a working pro for 10 years now, I know how to handle gear. It was normal work use, under conditions the gear is explicitely marketed for: Intense but normal use under normal central...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    But I see, it seems to be not allowed and cause aggressions when someone dares to share an experience that is not in line with the common perception. So, ok, here comes the revised version of what...
