On article GIMP seeks funding for future advanced features (181 comments in total)
In reply to:

sportyaccordy: Has he added a shadow/highlight slider yet?

Why? Direct shadow/highlight tools work better.

On article F is for '4th': Hands-on with Fujifilm X100F (350 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sezano: Oh Fuji, thank you!!!!!keep the flame burning.
Now listen.

1. 469g is way too heavy for a point and shoot. Even the ultimate point and shoot. 320 is much better.
2. Add all weather sealing
3. Add touch screen
4. Keep the same price.

So you want more weather sealing with less weight? Can you point to any cameras in existence that meet your spec?

sportyaccordy: As an A7II + Canon shooter in need of usable, high performance AF-C, this is really tempting. I'm just not quite sure I can live without my 24-70 2.8. 6D2 murmurs are growing louder and louder.

If nothing else, this is a major blow to the A6300/6500 for folks who don't shoot a ton of video. Sony might have 11 FPS, but Fuji doesn't charge you $1000+ for a decent tele zoom. If they can get this sensor down into the X-E3 Sony will have real problems

Ah, I didn't even know that was an option

WookieLala: No DOF equivalence debate for this camera? Oh yeah, this is reserved for MFT gear only, not APS-C (for obscure reasons).

Let me start: this camera + the 63mm f/2.8 gives the same angle of view and DOF as FF + 50mm f/2.2 (0.79 crop factor). I can buy a 5dsr + 50mm f/1.2 for much less money, similar pixel count and more DOF. The Canon combination will necessarily be better as photography is only about pixel count and DOF.

I doubt it obsolescence. These sensors have been available for years with mirrors.

MFT shooters are such a miserable bunch.

Fuji needs an F4 telephoto. A 50-200 F4 WR OIS for ~$700 would be pretty cool.

Yea, that 2.8 price is what gave me pause. I can get a Canon 70-200/4 IS for less, and a non IS for even less than that (which I could run with IBIS). Still though, I think the 50-230s should be pretty good.... way better than the SEL55210 for sure.

In reply to:

krassphoto: A silly question. Could it be that xt2's screen is touch-able? And now, after release of xt20 with touchscreen, xt2 will get a huuuge firmware upgrade, enabling touch screen feature? That would be great and very "Fuji-ish" :)

Touch screen is hardware, not firm/software. Never going to happen.

I tell you hwut.... I'd rather drop $6500 on this than a 1DX2 or D5. Different strokes for different folks guys

On article Leica announces M10 with new sensor, slimmer design (97 comments in total)
In reply to:

fPrime: So sad... Leica users had signed up en masse calling for Leica to release an updated full frame CCD sensor with strict CFA:

https://prosophos.com/2013/11/16/an-open-letter-to-leica/

Instead they got a "me too" 24MP CMOS sensor with weak CFA that Nikon, Canon, and Sony have all either released or surpassed years ago.

What bold technical innovation, Leica! If you think that will carry a $4,000 premium... may God help you. I might have considered buying an M10 had you stuck with a uniquely positioned CCD, but now you're just another average CMOS sensor camera company.

If you want technical innovation from Leica, buy an SL. Their rangefinders haven't been innovative in decades.

Hoping they put the new 5D4 sensor in this and call it the 6D2.

sportyaccordy: This may replace my 17-40L for landscape work. Will be awesome for wide indoor shots too. This and the 40/2.8 STM are a nice combo

I think the adapter or Capture One changes the lens names. I think it's cute :-D

Looking at it at a pixel level, yes the corners could use improvement. But at full screen size (about 50% zoom on my 40" 4K monitor) it is fine. It's something I haven't even noticed until you pointed it out.

It's the same lens as far as I know. Here is my Flickr with a lot of shots from the 17-40. Maybe I just don't have a critical eye but I'm not seeing any edge problems.

I am pleased with my 17-40 IQ wise. I mainly use it stopped down, but even wide open I don't mind it. DxO doesn't show a huge difference and I don't see one in pictures either. Main advantage of this would be the F/1.8... would be great for group shots indoors.

On article Rendered images show upcoming LG G6 with dual-cam (30 comments in total)

It's happening folks.

Today, dual cams with conventional Bayer filters. Tomorrow, quad cams with each module dedicated to a single RGBL channel, with the total sensor area + light gathering capability of a 1" sensor (do the math). Then a 9 cam module with the light gathering capability of MFT. Etc. etc. All at a lower cost than equivalent larger sensors.

Obviously, ergonomic and lens concerns will keep ILCs in play forever. But such advances could peel people away from the likes of RX100s and LX100s. Especially if they are able to make those camera modules have little tiny zoom lenses.

On article LG V20 achieves 85 points in DxOMark Mobile testing (12 comments in total)
In reply to:

sportyaccordy: Until DxO explains what the Mobile ratings mean this is largely useless. They should have put them on the same scale as regular cameras.

JPG IQ is dependent on sensor IQ. And a lot of new smartphones can output RAW.
