Give me a 4x4 or 5x5 and I'd be right on it.

BlueBomberTurbo: So much for only Fuji adding features in firmware. Fake news continues to be revealed!

"I can't believe that you are so stupid as to think you have the same chance of avoiding a surprise strong wind with an 8 second exposure as with a 1 second exposure."

This has nothing to do with this feature.

photoMEETING: Why sharpening a portrait?

For me, portrait photography is about emotions, not information.

Well, the sample image lacks any emotions. Trying to substitute the non-existent emotions with more information (=sharpness) is nothing I would do or recommend.

At least you stand by your words. You didn't sharpen any of the photos in your gallery.

If that was what happened, it's nice that they wanted the people, over the company.

proudfather: Things that strike me as peculiar:

1. Both photographers presumably took dozens if not more images and yet they coincidentally happened to choose the exact same image to edit and post.

2. We are told they are in different locations and would expect slight parallax to occur. And in fact the water angles do change. I would expect the lighthouse and mist angles to change as well, which they do not.

3. They both were shooting 600 mm lenses. OK, that's not so far-fetched and I'll give them that one.

4. The person who originally publicized this coincidence mysteriously removed her post/vanished.

5. Where's the other photographer? I want to see the fact that he, too, possesses a series of RAW files.

If both were shooting ultrawide angle lenses it might be more believable IMO. But at 600 mm, a change in even the slightest angle would have significant impact on composition. So, I don't know, call me pessimistic but I just ain't seeing it.

"(and her)".
Ha. :-)

In reply to:

babart: Unfortunately, it seems strange one would need the Canon or Nikon mount to mate to a Sony alpha. That means if you own a Sony you have to buy a Canon model Laowa to get the shift. Meaning one can't use the Laowa as 12mm without buying a Canon to Sony E adapter. Why not a shift adapter for the Sony E to Sony E? Or did I miss something in the text?

Forget it. You'll get it once you get it.

I have read it. This is not lens specific.

"Why not a shift adapter for the Sony E to Sony E"

If you get a cheap macro tube set, you'll quickly see why that's not doable.

oldfashioned: so the level is now USD 400 for a low-power flash? and there is also another fact of life: millennials are taking place in the marketing departments (naturally) and they know how to sell idiotic stuff at absurd prices to the other millennials)

I refer the honourable gentleman to my earlier reply.

Dylthedog: When brands that have a quality reputation cut back so much to meet a market they don’t naturally play in, and are scared that they will canalibilise up their food chain, it only ends ugly.

People will buy this camera, expecting an experience set by the Canon marketing machine. Instead, many will be disappointed by it, and the brand is more likely to loose them, and may not get them back.

"so yeah.. how will it take inferior picture?"

Lots of things come together to take great pictures. Like I said already, the same sensor, but virtually nothing else is as good as the 60D. I'm not saying it won't take great pictures, I'm saying it's no 60D.

Sorry, luvvy. Done with you. You'll have to find someone else to have a fake argument with.

Sorry old, no one is buying this one. Maybe you needed three decades.

Eh, it's not really. Apart from the sensor, it doesn't come close to matching any of the specs of the 60D. Cheap as chips though.

To be fair, it's hard to hit a target that is imaginary.

Which two decades? It has nothing to do with millennials. At all.

Thank you for the extra serving of condescension though. And you didn't even bill me for it. You sure you were in advertising?

Advertising history is full of people of all ages selling idiotic stuff to people of all ages.

The comments here on his musicianship and having no talent are patently ridiculous. Maybe stick to your lane and things you know about?

Hehe. No accounting for bad taste. It can't all be duff duff to work out to, bro.

Yes.
