On article An introduction to our studio test scene (110 comments in total)

It's tough to keep all the balls in the air at the same time. Great job guys, fantastic improvement over the previous studio scene.

Seems a bit Canon heavy for an unbiased list...

Jack Hogan: Well done. I feel however that to fairly compare noise and DR in captures taken in pixel-shift mode with others, one should first stack four captures of the others.

Are you mixing up SNR with spatial resolution? It's amazing how many people do. SNR/DR is measured in a uniform area like the one shown in the comparison above: the K-1 has no advantage there if compared apples to apples (i.e. 4 captures vs 4 captures).

As far as spatial resolution is concerned, pixel-shift provides an advantage in chromatic areas - but very little or none in neutral/hueless ones: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57727279

Kudos to Pentax, but let's not stretch it beyond what it is.

Andrew Elliott: If only my Q had a CCD sensor...

Colors out of CCD sensors are no more or less juicy than out of current sensors: it's just that since the days of CCDs a decade ago manufacturers have figured out that if you keep your customers on a constant sugar high their photographs all start to look like Ken Rockwell's.

I was looking forward to checking its non-Bayered resolution. Why is it so blurry at base ISO?

On article What is equivalence and why should I care? (2228 comments in total)

A good start and a good write up.

I would add a section on equivalent spatial resolution. Also, was the GH4 free? Your shareholder says that today the Panasonic/Leica 42.5/1.2 costs $1599 by itself.

Full Frame BSI sensor? OMG, that's truly incredible! But wouldn't it be nice... :-)

We look forward to seeing the relevant EM1 images in the New Studio Scene updated to reflect performance with the new mode. The current ones show it sompm' fierce.

On article Integrating the Apple MacBook Air into a pro workflow (346 comments in total)

Don't know what the complaints are about: this article is clearly not about the 'Best Laptop for a Photographer on Location' - that would have been a (more) useful article, but it's not what this one is about.

This article is about how one Apple-lovin' pro uses his new toy. However good or bad his criteria and choice is compared to what is available out there we'll have to search elsewhere.
