straylightrun: No IBIS?

Does Canon or Nikon have IBIS ? Panasonic has IS in the lenses like Canon and Nikon.

99.99% of consumer don't care if the S6 comes with a Sony or Samsung sensor just like other components just as long as it has the same specs (size, mp etc).

On E' la Belle Epoque in the A portrait in Corcos style challenge (16 comments in total)
In reply to:

bitstream: the lens that was used was the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G; therefore how come the aperture recorded was f2, i.e. larger than the aperture of the lens?

Maybe he used a 0.7x focal reducer like in the Metabones adapters ;) BTW I like the photo.

On LG G4 puts focus on the camera post (78 comments in total)
In reply to:

nerd2: It's funny so many people are fooled by LG's marketing lies.

-Sensor itself is the same size and MP as note 4 / GS6 (1/2.6" 16MP)
-Aperture is hardly any faster with G4(f1.83 vs f1.9, or 0.15 stop difference)
-"IPS Quantum" LCD is just IPS LCD with fancy brand name. It is hardly better than other IPS LCDs in terms of color/brightness/contrast and clearly worse than latest AMOLEDs.

Oh and the full manual control support - sounds good on paper, but the sensors lacks aperture control. You can manually control ISO and shutter speed on other android cameras anyway.

So exactly what did LG lie about ?

The new OIS 2.0 looks good in 4K mode for a smartphone IMHO.

kociasek: "all the advantages of a traditional cable release"
No, not at all. When I use cable release I don't need to stand right behind the camera. For example, I can shoot fireworks lying on the grass, watching the show, lazily pressing the button of the cable release connected to my tripod-mounted camera.
Also, using such feature I'd be afraid of moving behind the camera in case the camera interprets it as a shutter signal.
Also, with cable release I can take a photo at exactly the right moment. With hand waving you don't get such split-second accuracy.

I use the Sony cable release on my A7r so now you have a choice .

In reply to:

KW Phua: So what is the future of photography? Mirrorless, DSLR or iPhone?

I can't image future cameras having a flipping mirror box. After using my full frame A7r that is much smaller than my APS-C DSLRs I will never again purchase a camera with a mirror. I also enjoy getting stills from my GH4 4K videos.

In reply to:

Joe Ogiba: 40.96x21.6mm sensor , 8192 x 4320 pixels @60fps stills or 75fps widescreen Cinema 8K video, now that is the ultimate hybrid !

Ok, if using widesreen Cinema 8K gets you all bent out of shape then how about 2.40:1 aspect ratio 8K video for making movies to be shown in a cinema. DPR forum is a friggen war zone.

Lenses to cover a 62mm image circle :

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1229 comments in total)

Wow, it looks like the old world DSLR still shooters are getting all bent out of shape of the NX1. It is now 2015 and 4K video is the future but it looks like DPR is filled with PHOTOGRAPHY ONLY fanboys that hate were the world is going to.

I bet the demographics of owners of the Nikon Df is about the same as viewers of Faux News, 60+ white males that want to live in the past.

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1229 comments in total)
In reply to:

Everlast66: I am surprised how the NX1 (£1300 in the UK) got a higher mark for 'value' compared to the K3 (£700) and K5 II (£500) that have half its price?!?

Supposedly it has 2-3 times more/better features for its price to get a higher mark for value.

Indeed it has some unique features like the BSI APSC sensor, powerful processior, 4K video, but the K3 and K5 II have some features that the NX1 lacks, like in-body stabilisation, Pentax shooting modes, some unique ergonomic touches and the available lens line-ups are not even comparable.

You are comparing old Pentax DSLRs at fire sale prices to the new NX1 that blows away any APS-C camera on the planet.

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (810 comments in total)
In reply to:

TO Photo: I think this camera is aimed at a very different demographic than the typical DPR poster - a market much younger and more diverse. Why 4K video - because you can extract 8 MP stills from the stream and still have a video to down convert for a website. Potential users of this camera may be upgrading from using smart phones and tablets to get more control over image quality particularly under difficult conditions. You have to think new media users not traditional photographers or videographers.

I shoot 4K UHD with my GH4 to get 8mp still from the video stream.

The GH4 and Samsung NX1 are light years better then the XC10 as hybrid still/video cameras IMHO.

Right, this camera is the ultimate still/video camera but people hate it because it's a Canon. Canon fanboys are something else.

When Vincent Laforet posted his video "Reverie" shot with the Canon 5D MK II in 2008 it knocked my socks off. The XC10 in 2015 is not that type of event IMHO.

In reply to:

ET2: FS7 is not only half the price but does 4K at 60 fps. C300 only does 30 fps 4K

E-mount can not oly use all Canon lenses, but it can use speedbooster adapter, giving it full-frame look, something C300 cannot do due to the mount limitation.

FS7 can use not only Canon lenses, but also Nikon, and Leica M mount lenses, PL lenses, and native e-mount lenses, all at same time. The user isn't stuck to one mount.

C300 does 120 fps only in crop mode. FS7 does 180s fps in full sensor mode.

This is really no contest.

FS7 wins easy

The only full frame camcorder is the Sony VG900 that came out in 2012 that shoots 1080p60 and 24mp raw stills. A 4K version should be coming soon since Sony already has a full frame 28-135mm Cine lens with power zoom for E mount full frame cameras.

On Canon XC10: What you need to know article (230 comments in total)
In reply to:

W4YNE 1: I wonder if this is why Canon never installed 4k video in a 5D mk4 camera?

Is it Canons logic that If the consumer wants a 4K video camera why not make them buy two, one camera for video and one for stills."greater profits"

I'm affraid if I was in the market for a video I think I would seriously consider the Panasonics GH4 with It's 4k video and decent stills over this offering from Canon.

The Canon 1D C does 4K. I agree, the GH4 is a much better hybrid stills/video camera.
