That's what I do
Nothing hard in that

I agree, F the cloud.

Instead let’s buy 4x 2TB drives ($600), 4-bay NAS ($500), UPS (Uninterruptable Power Suppy - $150), set those drives up in RAID 5 for a double redundancy...

Then have a house fire/burglary/natural disaster/freak accident and well it’s all gone. Whoops.

Hoping this zoom matches the quality of the G2 zooms for a similar price.

Those Panasonic lenses look fantastic.

Honestly this was expected. Nikon want to market the false “mirrorless is smaller” statement so they will need a new mount. If Nikon expect to succeed in the mirrorless market they should design a good adapter to use all of Nikons existing lens lineup (and provide it for free with every camera).

waldoh: Canon is the easy punchline these days but this stolen and reposted image is not really Canons fault. Someone in Canons marketing department saw this amazing image “shot with Canon” and immediately posted it to the official IG.

Everyone isn’t familiar with Elia Locardis work so why would a marketer be expected to know the image was stolen.

The photographer should be getting shamed and possibly sued but Canon makes for a better headline.

@ChatBot I highly doubt this is just some marketing stunt because it involves degrading a major brand.

More likely Elia Locardi has been consulted by Fujifilm to not blow this up in the media more than it already has been. It looks bad if a brand ambassador is all over the media hunting down and destroying a small fish.

On article Have your say: Best high-end ILC of 2017 (169 comments in total)

Mirrorless taking 73% of the votes.

Nikon D850 is definitely the most improved of this list but the a7r3 is a more well rounded camera.

Triplet Perar: Let me explain the part people don't really "get" with these premium m4/3 lenses. An FF lens cannot keep look of its bokeh when stopped down to gain more workable DoF: you gain DoF, but kill the bokeh. And if you like bokeh, the DoF is so thin it is impossible to work with; or must move farther away, which, again, changes the composition and needed magnification.
Premium designs for m4/3 solve those problems, and such lenses deliver best of both worlds. (1) More DoF is better to avoid errors when shooting dynamically, with less focusing mistakes especially in portraiture. (2) Bokeh at f/1.2 is made NOT to match f/2.4 bokeh of a conventional aspherical design, which is very messy, but SURPASS it by far. The lens allows optical design (with more elements but with less thickness of glass) to render bokeh as if made with a much faster portrait lens of a classic design with fewer elements.
For those who really understand this, the m4/3 becomes best thing since sliced bread!

I am sure FF can keep the look of it’s bokeh when stopping down to f2 or f2.8 to match the bokeh of a 2.4 equiv lens.

1.4 is completely usable especially at wider focal lengths. Unless we are talking strictly headshots (which you wouldn’t be using a 35 unless it’s an artistic shot) then 1.4 will keep your subjects entire body in focus and provide a little bit of pleasing bokeh while maintaining a sense of place.

Defend a systems strong points but dont start buying your own bs.

Disregarding compression.

17 1.2 = ~35 1.2 (2.4 DoF) - $1199
35 1.4 FF = ~$1500
35 1.8/2-2.8 FF = ~$500

M4/3 is cool and useful in video and to shed weight but these prices are quite high.
I think I would take a small FF body with a slower 1.8-2.8 lens and rely on the sensor size advantages for any low light (non flash) photography.

Hell 23mm (35 equiv) aps-c lenses can be had for $400-$800. Same size body, bigger sensor, less money.

ttran88: Another day another Sony article!! The lack of love for Canon around here is ridiculous!!

Canon... gear of the year? I don’t think so. This isn’t 2015.

I really don’t think Canon shooters would enjoy an article about Canons new business, running a dairy farm.

Get your pitchforks ready!

JK, if commercial means recording a music video, travel short or any pictures used for marketing purposes I don't see a problem.

At the same time for a town run primarily off of tourism, this is a short sighted move.

The grey area is huge. I would go and take pictures for my own house and get around paying that fee. If someone decides months later they want to buy the picture, Positano cannot possibly track me down or get the money.

Nice the A7RII has been dethroned... 2 years later.

If the d850 had an EVF I would probably buy it. Overall seems like a fantastic camera.

That's just despicable, B&H. You lost one customer.

Would you hire a world class photographer to be your assistant for a day and set up your lights? Doubt it.

This is just business. It sounds worse but how about "B&H hired low skilled employees to fill entry level positions which are paid less due to the skill set required to perform the job".

The only half negative part is where it says they were not given an opportunity to be promoted to a higher position.

MarioV: Great and everything, but I'd like to see a 1TB budget version for less than half price with say 150 MB/s read/write.

Buy the Samsung T3, I am sure they will be discounted since the new model is out.

Slash those camera and lens prices in half and I would be interested.

I want a reason to pick up a voigtlaender lens but this isn't it. The 90mm macro is 1:1 and fantastic.

Maybe the 40mm that is set to be released.
