Depth-of-Fiend ???

I can't resist posting on this - it made me laugh anyway.

I just came across a new piece of photographic terminology whilst looking at information about the Pentax 645D on the Pentax UK website.

Apparently, because it has a larger sensor than a 35mm DSLR, it offers (and I quote):

"Distinctive imaging characteristics different from those of 35mm format
Rich gradation, natural depth-of-fiend description at open aperture, and crisp image definition at smaller apertures. "

Now, I'm not sure I want a description of a fiend's depths in relation to any sort of open aperture, but (as some of my US friends might say) your mileage may vary.

If you'd like to see the full description, it's at: Pentax 645D

Maybe, if you don't select the right aperture for your picture then the Bokeh Man will come and get you (cue Vincent Price laugh).

In all honesty, if a company can't even get it's web site correct, it's not going to get my custom!

Oh come on - it's a simple typo, that's all (like the errant apostrophe in the first it's of your sentence above).

Yay - support the Grammar Police (I'm a fully paid-up member) and its objectives. It's important to rid the world of surplus apostrophes. People that use them also have problems with their colons.

Did you self censor the diminutive "Richard" or is that not allowed here? Smile

Maybe because I originated the message, but I can see (if you'll pardon the expression) JamesGarfield's diminutive Richard. Grin

But only when I log in. Sad

The fiendish depths these censors will stoop to!
