On article Casio Japan introduces Exilim EX-ZR3000 and EX-ZR60 (68 comments in total)

Wow, that's actually a pretty good deal (ex-zr3000) considering it has a slightly larger 1/1.7 sensor.

Greg VdB: If the new 7-bladed aperture means an improvement on bokeh (look her for instance how "special" the old one is: http://www.pbase.com/gbleek/image/37881395), I fully intend to buy one. The improved focus ring should now make it a viable option for astrophotography.

Andrea, I agree, and because there is no hard stops on the focus ring or a distance scale. it will be more difficult to find infinity compared to micromotor or USM.

Just my opinion but I don't think STM AF is good for astrophotography due to it not having hard stops.

Those must be the new phase detection points ;)

Is Fuji still using micromotor technology for their autofocus?

On article Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D (321 comments in total)

"The Rebel T6s / EOS 750D is designed in the 'classic' Rebel way, with no top-plate mounted LCD screen and with the exposure mode dial on the upper-right of the body. "

I believe this is a typo and is instead to be T6i.

On article Canon EOS 6D In-Depth Review (88 comments in total)
In reply to:

mattgoblue: I use a 50D for my high school sports work but wanted a full frame for portraiture. I purchased the 6d and am happy with it but can't seem to figure out how to get to the low ISO's (100 & 50). I set the ISO range to 50-1600 in the menu but the lowest ISO I can select still only goes to 200. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you have Highlight Tone Priority turned on, the lowest ISO speed will be 200. For lower ISO, turn off HTP.

Where is the "I want it" Button? Sigma is hypnotizing me with there new ART line.

looking at that image of their camera, I can see why they closed it down.

On article Sigma updates USB dock for new lenses (20 comments in total)
In reply to:

beavertown: Does this USB dock also used for unbreak of 3rd party lenses support in the future? Like nasty Nikon switched off Tamron A005 for the V1 via dirty firmware update.

If yes, Tamron and other 3rd party lenses manufacturers should release a dock like Sigma does.

Yes, Sigma had firmware update for their lens for Nikon cameras that had the "updated" firmware. Example D5300.

70D firmware update

I want this and i don't even own a Fuji ILC.

Canon, fix my 70D's wide aperture autofocus issue.

Link | Posted on Sep 5, 2014 at 03:12 UTC as 12th comment

Aww, I thought it was going to be a recall for the 70D's phase detection auto-focus sensor.

I am guessing this camera is made in the same cheap chinese factory as all the other small sensored super zooms from Kodak, Fujifilm, Afga, and Samsung.

After seeing Fuji's new line of bridge cameras, I'm happy to still have my S200EXR.

In reply to:

pixperfect: It seems Canon cameras are getting better and better.

EOS 50D - Magnesium body
EOS 60D - Aliminum body
EOS 70D - Plastic body

Am I missing something?

60D was plastic as well. Both 60D and 70D have metal chassis.

In reply to:

Raist3d: Fuji, I love your other Xtrans cameras, but this is not it. This is an XF1 rebadged (the concept, not literally). Um.... no.

yup, it even says EXRCMOS under sensor type in the specs. Probably a typo. Even if its a rebadged XF1, I like it. And its not as if this is a new thing to do. All manufacturers have rebadged products with slightly new specs.
