  • I'll admit I'm not exactly sure what the "score" on DXO is trying to measure (quantum efficiency?), but I presume it's based on the ability of each photosite to capture light. If that is the case,...

  • Honestly, I think they ran out of places to put it that wouldn't be obscured by the lens at the wide end of the zoom range. Kind of a shame, really, that it couldn't be added as an LED flash ring...

  • I don't mean to be a d*ck, but did you even read the article?
    filter = 43mm
    res=12.7/12.2/11.3/9.5 in 4:3/3:2/16:9/1:1 respectively
    yes, 24mm; always compare to 3:2 to match 35mm AR
    yes, the lens...

  • Unless what they really wanted / designed for was a 5/4 sensor which nobody makes. It may have simply been cheaper to use an existing 4/3 sensor and give up 10% in crop factor.

    Of course, the big...

  • It is a nice touch. I would speculate that there is an aperture setting at one end or the other for "auto" just as there is an A on the shutter speed dial, so that the mode is set by the actual...

  • Well, 20% in area, 10% in linear size. It could be they didn't like the corners of the lens they had and decided that a 22mm short end was less important that good corner to corner sharpness. It...

  • $500 for the Plus/128 *on contract*? Wow, that's a pretty tough pill to swallow. That makes it, what, about $1000 unlocked/off contract? Whatever you do, don't drop it in the toilet or fall into...

  • Actually, I'm thrilled that Apple has implemented NFC. Not because I have iOS devices, though; I sold my iPhone and gave away my (mostly unused) iPad 3 months ago in favor of an LG G3. Rather, I'm...

  • You should really try a BlackRapid. It's more comfortable than a standard neckstrap when walking around. You can run with it, but you can't run with a neck strap either (unless you like chest...

  • Maybe, but on seeing the image, the nipples of every hipster in America were hard enough to cut glass.

  • Based on the article, you'd end up with a high performance turbine hooked to a generator, then that generator hooked to a single electric motor which drives a traditional gearbox and transmission...

  • I'm not sure its the choice of camera, but the knowledge that there's close to 6 figures of assembly in that camera. Of course, they didn't say so, I'm just assuming that there's 500-1000 total...

  • You know what would have been cooler? An affordable dye sub printer.

  • And that's for 6x6 - so 3350mm equivalent on a FF sensor. Though I'm sure someone would point out that you have a smaller equivalent f stop and would argue about the lost of shallow DOF. ;-)

  • That presumes you have a server to store the data at a local, offsite location that allows you that ability to backup or you have to physically go there to swap drives at whatever interval you...

  • RAID isn't a backup, it's a redundancy. As is pointed out elsewhere, rebuilding a multi-TB library from local backups can take days, and rebuilding from a remote server can take weeks. I have...

  • Even Apple phones die. They're made of silicon, they can go bad. And if the problem occurred while running and Shirker followed the SOP for fixing an iPhone, that requires a reset. If the failed...

  • Depends on how the data is stored. unRaid is technically proprietary, too, but it's really just an array of disks with a parity drive that store everything on the data disks in ReiserFS that can be...

  • Depends on your RAID. I had an unRaid server disk fail, and while it took almost 24 hours to rebuild the drive, the server and the files were never offline - they were served by the computed...

  • Two 4TB 3.5" USB drives = $300 (sometimes less)
    One CrashPlan subscription = $152 for 4 years (use the google search 20% off coupon)

    Use the first 4TB external drive for your work, and have...
