  • Replied in Wow!
    Impressive.  This dramatically alters my opinions on including AA filters in cameras.
  • Reportedly, it had to be that size to accommodate the IBIS unit. I don't have much data to back this up, but I am of the opinion that Fuji over engineers their IBIS system. That said, in the ...
  • The important one for me is battery life.  I suspect that the 100mp sensor will draw more power, which will likely offset gains they make in upgrading the firmware.  The other two deal breakers ...
  • Wondering if this is an error, as I can't seem to corroborate anywhere else.  Maybe a replacement is coming soon?
  • Is 1 TB enough space for you on the PCI-e drives?  Do you use any sort of RAID?  Is the PCI-e the traditional slot in type or NVMe? Stay Calm and Carry Cameras https://thecentercolumn.com/
  • Ditto.  After learning to shoot on 4:5, the 3:2 in most digital ILCs felt really awkward.  Picking up the 4:3 of digital medium format into portrait mode for the first time was a breath of ...
  • Thanks!  I don't have plans to review the LS-365C soon.  I may get around to it someday, but it will be awhile.  It looks pretty similar to the 324c, but with one larger tube segment.  My guess is ...
  • Yes, absolutely.  The large size of the grill creates incredibly smooth transitions between the in smoke and out of smoke portions of the meat.  The volume also requires stopping down the smoke ...
  • I am going to guess that image 1 is the MF one, and image 2 is full frame.  This is based on seeing more false color aliasing in the center of image 1 and assuming better performance on axis for ...
  • And why do say that?
  • Thanks Jim.  A hornets nest indeed.  I spend very little time today to attempt a similar test, throwing out all hope of actually controlling the variables particularly well. Below are two shots ...
  • I can't say from the specs I can find online. The maximum height of 1.658 m is with the center column at full extension. I always give a score with the center column down. When fully extended, the ...
  • Thanks!  I am glad it has been helpful.  I have taken the LS-224C traveling a couple times when looking for something super light and have been pretty happy with it.  For its weight it can't be beat.
  • The difference has to do with the way things are rounded.  The numbers for height, weight, and stiffness presented on the rankings page around rounded to some reasonable decimal place.  When the ...
  • I have been wanting to get my GFX and 250mm F4 on top of the telescope to do some wide field imaging with tracking.  I have been incredibly impressed by the lens, and would love to see what it ...
  • I have no problem with the level of diffraction at F11. Under ideal conditions with the best lenses I can notice a small difference between F8 and F11 from diffraction. For the 32-64, I find that ...
  • Thanks, didn't realize the MTFs were up yet.  Yeah, honestly, I was hoping they would be a touch better than that.  I am sure there will be improvement when stopped down, but its not too long ...
  • Yeah, the most likely could not have made it F4 in a reasonably portable size.  I will likely be using it at F8-F11 anyways, but it still feels weird after having gotten great results over the ...
  • You have to impose the constraint that the lenses are used at equivalent apertures due to presumably, a need for DOF.  But yes, if your scene needs a lot of depth of field, then the maximum ...
  • Created discussion thread Fuji 100-200 GF Officially announced
    https://www.dpreview.com/news/8109675787/fujifilm-announces-100-200mm-f5-6-lens-for-gfx-system The new information here is the price at $2000 USD and the shipping date of late February.  Given ...
