  • Commented on Connect post Sony Xperia Z5 camera review

    I wanted to point out that train shots are at ISO 200-500, and for best details it's better to look at something like last shot, where bottom part of the monument is well lit and in focus, but then...

  • Commented on Connect post Sony Xperia Z5 camera review

    The image quality is excellent at base ISO 40 when subject is in focus and shutter speed is fast enough. Don't look at first photo at ISO800 - no smartphone would do significantly better.


  • The OEMs also have to sell cameras to people who don't read sites like this

  • Yongnuo has the same radio module in all Canikon flashes and remote triggers. They'll sell 100 times more of these than Fuji will sell flashes. Economy of scale.

  • It's 2016.

    Products that transmit radio are more expensive to bring to market because they require certification (FCC in US and similar in other countries). Camera makers, except for Nikon and...

  • It's not a module, it's a single chip. Typical PC memory module (DRAM stick) has 8 of these chips that give 8GB capacity combined.
    This chip is obviously 8 Gigabit, not byte.

  • Samsung was blindly copying Apple without much thinking, I guess. They thought Apple has a success only because it doesn't offer SD card slot. Fail.

    With Galaxy S6 Samsung somewhat listened to...

  • I think it's an absolutely great film. One of the best ever made.
    Movie name is fine. This movie breaks standards in many ways. Seemingly incoherent name is just one of them. And it's a good...

  • BTW, why did you assume that I wanted to recover highlights?? I never implied that.
    Generally, there is a lot to see in photos beyond basic blown highlights.

    2 Alastair. If you ever tried to take...

  • I don't understand the negativity. Yes, I would reduce color saturation on some of the photos, #9 in particular, but vast majority of the photos are well done and pleasant to see, IMO.

  • "The entrance was blown out by choice". I agree with this point and I don't argue it. It's a good choice that author made. The entrance should have been blown.

    My point was that even with blown...

  • Erez, thanks for the answer. And for the photos, of course.
    Re: "how this is all connected to the topic". Never mind, those gearheads will always find a topic to invade. Good thing that it's only...

  • GaryJP, you win. I agree that with high ISO, above 800 (not 400) Canon doesn't suck that much as with low ISO.

  • Please do tell. Tell something meaningful when you stop editing your posts 10+ minutes after you initially posted it.

    It shouldn’t be so hard to keep your thoughts together and produce a coherent...

  • There's a huge amount of nonsense and assumption in the world about dietary directions but I can't be bothered to learn all these.
    And I eat pork, shrimps, sour cream, watermelon AND pickles at the...

  • Some professionals invested tens of thousand dollars in Canon lenses. It's hard to switch systems at this point, + habits play a role.

    Professionals also know how to expose properly, and use light...

  • Guys are so amusing here. Hard to accept that Canon sensors suck big time, eh?

    No need to scream in capital letters like teenagers. Adults should be able to put emphasis in their statements...

    And that's why author used HDR for this shot, right? I don't see a logic in your statement.

    BTW, the photos are very good and interesting, and that was expressed well enough in...

  • The second shot, 'High on Ice' clearly shows the lack of dynamic range in Canon cameras. And that was HDR according to "hdr7" in JPEG name, which JPEG "cannot be displayed because it contains...

  • 2Francis Carver
    You started to talk about interface (mSATA) when it was totally irrelevant to the article. The article was about new memory technology, not an interface (which doesn't exist for...
