On article Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV review (484 comments in total)
In reply to:

Joburger: Hopefully, the RX10 V will have the original 24-200/2.8 lens and the IV's AF.

I'd buy that for sure!

I consider the Mk IV because of the zoom range, but I believe many would interested in an upgraded version of the Mk I/II-design too.

stevo23: But they don't ever rate Fuji. I think the Fuji MF would be right up there with it.

Fuji use the same 50MP sensor so the score should be about the same. No reason that they can't rate the Fuji MF though as it use a Bayer filter.

In reply to:

Peter Bendheim: If the score is over 100 then surely the scoring system is wrong or am I missing something. What does 100 represent as a benchmark if you can score over it?

It's not a 0-100 scale. Scores will continue increasing as sensors get better.

Pretty good intro to DxO-test.

5DMK3: This product is for the extreme minority.
iPad Pro is way way faster than any highend PC/Macbook hardware with LR will ever be.
It is NOT about the hardware but the software that uses it.
Adobe could solved this years ago if they even cared, but everything is about mobil devices. Development goes to where the masses and money is aka mobile!

Isn't LR mobile free, but you'll have to pay for LR on Mac or PC?

PhotoUniverse: "Its 0.03 sec AF-lock speed is claimed to be the World's fastest"

Doesn't every camera maker claim the same thing everytime they announce their cameras?

Generally yes, but I believe Canon made an exception when the first Eos M came out.

In reply to:

Kubicide: Sorry but this article simply doesn't make sense! A sensor DR cannot 'outstrip it's bit depth' whatever that means.

Dynamic range is determined by the source (the sensor). The bit depth or sampling rate will not affect the sensor's dynamic range by either expanding it or reducing it. Using higher bit depths is always better as it helps when reproducing the image precision and accuracy (of the color, brightness, darkness, etc.). Increasing the bit depth means the sampling rate has changed so that the subtle shifts in color/tint/hue/etc. within the dynamic range of the scene can be reproduced more faithfully. But using a 12-bit or 14-bit RAW won't result in different dynamic ranges of the same image; if it's xx dB then it will remain xx dB.

Perhaps the author has confused terms, or is trying to describe something other than dynamic range or bit depth (?)

Most ADCs are linear if I understood it correctly.

Maybe it will support 4K

I watched it. There is no reason to if you've paid attention to the D850-news the last week.

Michiel953: Leica made these 10, the shop bought those 10, decided to do some black paint and engraving, and doubled the price.

Pretty adventurous for just a shop.

It's a 20% increase compared to buying the same body and lens in the same store. And you get the box and the lens in black in stead of silver.

In reply to:

juergen hofinger: Copying slides with a macro lens is quite simple even without any special equipment. I use an iPad as light source, an empty box of tissues as spacer and a tripod. Where I currently fail is converting negativ film. I wish my Fuji X-T2 would have this functionality …

I assume you can save as RAW if you want to, but then you have to do the negative to positive conversion yourself.

Edit: D850 supports TIF-format too, so it might be possible to save as TIF (But why would you).

On article 2017 Roundup: Enthusiast Long Zoom Cameras (286 comments in total)
In reply to:

a777: Question remains plain simply: how to compare lenses of fz1000 and some ultrazoom DSLR lenses (18-300 for example)? Is fz1000 much better? Because DSLR lenses have more reach, better eq aperture and the pack sizes quite comparable.
But only comprasion that we have - strictly between compacts, or strictly between DSLR lenses. But what if I already have APS-C DSLR and thinking about ultra-flexible reach?

APS-C is about 3 times the area of 1 inch sensors. That should give APS-C about 1-1.5 stops advantage provided sensor tech is equal. FZ1000 is f/2.8-4 while 16-300 (and many other superzoom lenses) is f/3.5-6.3. This should give 16-300 + APS-C-sensor a clear advantage compared to FZ1000 at the wide end, but no advantage at all in the tele end were the FZ1000 lens is about 1⅓ stops faster.

The RX10 III with a f/2.4-4.0 is obviously closer to 16-300 at wide angle, and even more competitive with tele 600m equivalent.

Tamron 16-300mm is 24-450mm equivalent on 1.5 crop so it more than matches the FZ1000 zoom range. I've never used the 16-300mm, but I compared the FZ1000 with an older Tamron 18-270mm on a 70D and IMO the FZ1000 gave better image quality if you look at sharpness and CA. Any modern dSLR is better on high ISO and DR though,

On article Sigma SD Quattro H Review (643 comments in total)
In reply to:

FLruckas: They should really make a version of these cameras in a Canon mount....

I'd strongly consider one then.....

Sigma use the same signalling lines and protocol as the EF-mount and same flange distance (physically the mounts are incompatible) so it would be really easy to make a Canon version.

Having a Canon version would enable all Canon users to try Sigma/Foveon by getting a new body in stead of having to switch systems. That's potentially a pretty big market for Sigma, but would of course reduce the chances of selling Sigma mount lenses.

I'm not sure that would be a big loss since the Sigma lenses are already available in EF-mount, and are quite competitive with Canon glass.

justmeMN: "Where the TG-4 used a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor, the TG-5 has dropped to 12MP, in order to improve image quality (according to the company)." -DPR

According to the company, but others are skeptical. :-)

The design of most waterproof models reduce IQ (compared to a similar P&S), including "real" resolution.

I had the Eos 5 and the eye control focus worked well for me. Probably the most advanced camera I've ever owned (for the time).

tobicy68: Can't wait for the Tamron 100-400mm that's rumored to come out as well. Possibly a smaller version of this lens and balances pretty well on APSC bodies.

There were news of a Tamron 100-400 on many sites in July. Only a patent for now, but looks interesting if you want good reach in something smaller than the usual 150-600 or Nikon/Sony/Canon 80/100-400.
