  • Doesn't the 5DIII have 61 AF points (and 41 X type)?  Or was that your point?
  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    I doubt that the sensor costs $4k unless they get a really pathetic yield. The processed wafer might be $4k perhaps.

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    It's a really nice looking camera though. Beats the heck out of the mahogany Sony thing they first tried. BTW, how much was that?

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    But then they couldn't call it a Hasselblad :-)

  • I like the dark one, but it may just be what I am used to.
  • It looks like Nikon decided to use a different architecture than they have been using on recent cameras for the D5 for some reason.  It would seem that they wanted to emphasize the high ISO ...
  • Oh, to heck with the camera.... a camera is a camera after all.  What we really want to know is what kind of cat is that?  I bet he or she is quite popular on Halloween.
  • The statement made in the ISO invariance section: "it minimizes the need to amplify the sensor's signal in order to keep it above that noise floor (which is what ISO amplification conventionally...

    4.  People just love to argue ;-)
  • Replied in Not this one
    Wow, some impressive stuff -- thanks for sharing this.
  • Replied in Not this one
    Yes, that goes without saying, really.  I specifically say Canon because after all the years of people demeaning Canon's IQ over this petty DR thing, I look at the stuff from people like Pete ...

    Ah.... Mr. President, could you hold perfectly still?  I need to make three shots ;-) Yep, that is a good example of a case where you got to get it quick and get it once.  Did you shoot that one?  ...
  • Replied in Might be
    Absolutely.  That's where I was going with the "good enough" comment.  But if I find myself looking at the "shot of a lifetime" and I am worried about DR, I am going to bracket the darn thing, ...
  • If your sensor lacks dynamic range, there are time honored ways to work around that.  It is not a "fanboy" thing to point that out.  It is also fair to point out that if your goal really IS ...
  • A gearhead "canard".  I think his point is that today's gear doesn't put up too many significant limitations for competent photographers and hasn't for quite some time.
  • Yep, couldn't agree more.
  • Yea, but in the hyped up example shots we have been looking at for years whenever this topic comes up, it is always the shadows where they focus, regardless of whatever they are pushing.  In ...
  • Replied in Why?
    Yea, I once saw a demo at the CES show of a recording engineer editing a Brittiny Spears song where he actually adjusted the voice pitch to get her back on key for part of it -- so it isn't only ...
  • Replied in two
    One thing that pro photographers can learn from him, which IMO is really what he does best, is marketing.
  • Replied in agreed
    Wow! I had never seen this article. There is one sentence in there that pretty much sums it up: “Phantom”: as the flagship of an entrepreneur catering mostly to an overlooked group, namely people ...
