  • Posted on: Sony Alpha A9 Hands-On Preview

    Exciting times for camera innovation.

    Sony and Fuji both pushing the envelope.

    If Sony can come up with the glass at the long end for the pro's, then things will get very interesting.

    Time for Canon and Nikon to get their finger out.

    This looks to be a real game changer. IQ looks superb, certainly better than the 50mp Canon. Bring it on Fuji.

    The manual focus aspect is nothing to worry about. With focus peaking and magnification it should be straightforward. What did people do prior to autofocus? They did it manually.
    Affording this monster? Well now that's another much bigger problem. Excellence like this comes at a price!

    I was quite keen to try this software. But when I ran a demo of this software using my Sony A7R RAW files, wide dynamic scenes such as sunsets were rendered with terrible, huge blown halos. I couldn't seem to overcome this problem, so I abandoned plans to purchase the software.
    I've found ACR's latest HDR implementation to be excellent, giving very natural looking results. To me, a lot of HDR software gives a signature look which can be quite artificial at times.

    This camera looks extremely interesting and has some similar variable focus effects to the Lytro camera.

  • Posted on: Uncompressed 14 Bit RAW Capture Coming To Sony Alpha Cameras

    This is great news as it will hopefully satisfy the more rabid pixel peepers who claim that Sony RAW files are unusable.

    For the rest of us Sony users, I welcome the possibility of greater processing latitude and the opportunity to use the full RAW if I need it.

  • Posted on: Panasonic Announce 'Post Focus' Technology

    This looks like similar tech in the Lytro system.
    Makes things almost too easy.
    Many a time we've all got a great shot then looked at the focus point and cursed!

  • Posted on: Sony Alpha A7R Mark II Hands-On

    Lots of improvements and upgrades. Slight extra weight but worth it for the in-body stablisation.
    The new 5 series Canon looks to have some very interesting competition.

  • Posted on: Sony A7R II With Back Illuminated 35mm Full Frame Sensor

    The A7rII builds on the success of the A7r.

    It now looks like a truly complete high res camera.

    Just hope they include non-compressed RAW as an option too.

    Nikon will probably get the sensor soon.

  • Posted on: Retouching Is Not About Blurring Or Airbrushing Skin

    As someone who has to retouch a lot of photos for a living I see a lot of terrible examples.

    The techniques shown are very effective and fairly subtle. Unfortunately not everybody has 8 hours to devote to achieve this level of finish.

    I would also recommend Phlearn's free frequency separation action on his website together with some of his other skin toning techniques.

    Sony again innovating and moving forward. Canon sitting on their laurels are going to be left behind.

    A good idea but way overpriced . 10 and I might be tempted.

    At last a native FE widey and at nearly 1300 it better be good. Hope Sony hurry up and release it and that there's no customary date slippage.

    The software is very impressive but it's all too easy to make someone look plastic. The above examples look too processed to my eye

  • Posted on: Next Generation Of The Leica Rangefinder Camera

    A beautifully crafted instrument no doubt. It's really some of the lenses that are very special. Still I reckon if I had the dosh I'd get one. That red dot still has a certain cache.

    This system promises to open up the medium format market by being considerably cheaper than other equivalent systems. And that with that huge Sony sensor...yowza!

  • Posted on: Sony a7R And a7 Light Leak Causes Found

    When is anyone going to shine fibre optics at the camera in this way in real world situations?

    Just completed a shoot where I was blasted with stage lights and never got a sniff of this problem.

    Had no problems with so called limited battery life either and some of the other complaints levelled at the Sony.

    I suppose you can find fault with anything if determined enough.

    Nuke proof and with every conceivable button/option. Formidable no doubt. But get ready for the physio' after lugging it about for and hour or three.

    An interesting form factor.

    Many camera have safe or mundane designs based on ideas going back decades.

    Good to see a manufacturer trying something different.

    Getting the A7r with FE 35mm.
    Can't wait.

    Bye bye Canon it was good whilst it lasted, but I now need a younger lighter model.

    Hope these cameras kick start small/lighter full frame alternatives from the big two.
    Lugging around big DSLRs/Lenses is a pain I am now relieved of.

    We shall see...

  • Posted on: New Way To Measure Perceived Sharpness Of Lenses

    This kind of data will now be bandied about on web forums (usually stateside) as definitive evidence that one lens or camera is better than another.

    The grass is always greener. That Nikon D800 is crushing everything and the charts don't lie.

    So now I get Nikon fever and have to bin my Canon...

    I think DxOMark has some use as a guide but the real acid test is to try the equipment for yourself before you buy and don't agonise too much over the specs.

    After all, the camera can't walk out of the door and take that killer shot for you (not yet thank goodness).

    Thank you very much everyone for all your votes and comments.

    I'll be trying to produce more of this type of work in the future.

    In this case I was very lucky to find such charismatic subjects.

  • Posted on: Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens Review

    Obviously a quality lens, but the price is taking the piss. And no lens hood either. What are Canon marketing dept doing? It's the same with the new 24-70L IS which is 2000+ and at the same time they're discontinuing the older non IS lens at half the price.

    Time was when Canon lenses were cheaper than their Nikon counterparts but Canon are getting greedy.

    Half of me hopes Canon get killed by the D800 so that it forces them to get their act together on pricing.

  • Posted on: Nikon D800 Digital SLR User Review

    The D800 will definitely be a game changer. You get one hell of a camera for the money.
    As a Canon user, my biggest complaint is the paucity of trickle down features from the top end pro lines to the enthusiast cameras. Only now has the 5D series got a sophisticated focusing system and decent weather sealing. But where is the built-in wireless flash operation of the 7D? The pricing of the 5D3 is definitely way over the top too. If Canon pitched the price nearer it's predecessor, it would fly off the shelves.
    It will be interesting following the fortunes of the D800 and 5D3 over the coming months.
