On article Hawks Factory announces new 35mm F2 in M-mount (67 comments in total)

Minolta 40mm F/2 M-Rokkor. 1/4 the price. Smaller. Lighter. Renders beautifully.

Irakly Shanidze: Not an easy sell for $1800 considering the price of Leica Summarit 2.4/35 new, or even a Summicron 2/35 pre-asph used. Do not forget about Zeiss ZM 2/35, by the way...

It's not just not an easy sell, it's not a sell at all.

AKH: Apple was hardly a pioneer in the world of computers.

Anyway, nice to see these articles with a review of these old cameras.

The contribution of Ledru-Rollin can't be ignored if the discussion is going down that path.

pwmoree: I used this cam to make (one of the first) webcams in The Netherlands. It took a picture of The Beach at Zandvoort from behind a hotel window evry hour during daylight hours. For some time this was one of the the most popular websites in the country (1996-1997). Of course it only waisted money but we had lots of fun. The listing under a .com domain of "interesting things on the net" with the sublink webcamera had at that time only 28 webcams listed wordlwide.

Pretty sure I visited your webcam at the time. Thank you for making it.

Ideas and inventions are nothing without the products that implement them. Plus there are plenty of Apple inventions. But then, you already knew that.

D500 001: To me this image fits more to abstract than travel. Quite similar to a work by Barnett Newman:

The world would be a boring, segregated place if each thing could only be single-faceted.

Biological_Viewfinder: I hate, abhor, detest, despise, that someone who was not even holding a camera and instead used a noisy, annoying, toy to take a picture and won a bunch of money.

Other people did their best, got on their knees in the muck, took bracketed shots to later blend so the dynamic range was there, and did their level best to portray the scene; and got beat by someone who artificially flew above the ground. Not even in a plane or helicopter, he just plain cheated; and still won.

I hate drones! HATE is too small and quiet of a word to describe my unbridled, uncontained absolute rage and malice I feel toward the drones and everyone associated with them.

Everytime I see one, I see some *$(@)*$&@ that is so selfish that he does not care if his loud, obnoxious, annoying, bee-buzzing ruins the experience someone else is having on their walk, hike, camping trip, or their attempts at photography with all the oppressive distraction of some toy model making noise.

Joel, is there a higher resolution version of the desert photo up somewhere?

So he's evoked the essence of abstract art, while taking a travel shot. You say it like it's a bad thing.

"No one was ever too loud reading a book."

Then you are reading the wrong books. Plenty of times I've been shushed in the quiet carriage when laughing out loud reading a book.

I don't think it's drones, or jet skis, or noise, you have an issue with. I think it may be other people having fun. Could be wrong. *shrug*

What did you think of the photo itself?

Mark Turney: I don't really get this continual need to simulate something old. If you want that look and feel, shoot with film (negative or slide). Please .... let's move forward with making THIS digital "medium" as good as it can be.

" It's fake nostalgia, it has no soul"

I'm betting there is something in your life that you praise that is an analog version of something where there is a newer alternative but you prefer the old.

Whether it's furniture, or jewellery, or vinyl, or cars, or machines, or blenders, or stamps, or whatever. There will be something where you say "They just don't make them like they used to" and pine for the good old days, when objectively the newer versions are really better.

So what?

If that's what it is to you, then don't use it. That doesn't make it so for everyone.

It can still use SD-cards.

Could you put it in one of those ziplock, waterproof cases without causing any network issues? This product seems to be one crying out to be 'ruggedized'.

If it was to make it waterproof, that would have been a worthy tradeoff, but Phil's explanation is pretty much "just because, hey".

I'd love to see a version of this lens for Sony E-mount.

On article Teardown reveals Sony image sensors in iPhone 7 (198 comments in total)
In reply to:

rfsIII: If Sony is the Kodak of image sensor makers (because they seem to produce the majority) then who is the Agfa? Or the Fuji or the GAF or the Ilford or the Bergger or the Adox?
Why do I care? I'd like to be able to pick my phone based on sensor characteristics, rather than brand. Apple phones make nice images and all, but they feel a little too nice...

Fujifilm are the Ilford.

It's an interesting question. What chance do you think it was?
