Minolta appears again!

Perhaps KM sold the rights to use the name:
https://www.minoltadigital.com/

Don't get too excited though they just look like re-badge cheapo cameras that are flying around under other names
Perhaps one day they might put something interesting out there.

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

With Darktable there is so much going on it's not very intuitive. Biggest problem so far is loading images they seem to have an odd tonal curve (I know it can be adjusted by default), but I'm not overly blown away with the raw conversions. It's quite slow even on a 6c/12t up to date pc, where as oth...

Re: A mount s/h lens prices have "bombed"

I've not seen prices this low for some time for s/h lenses. Bodies is similar across brands ie they tank once they reach a certain age even if the cameras are in great condition. You can barely give a used A200 away nowadays or A700 as they are so old in terms of tech, some of the older Canikon FF b...

A mount s/h lens prices have "bombed"

I dig about the odd time on Ebay and shocked to see just how much prices have dropped When you see a mint as new Zeiss Distagon T* 24mm f/2 ZA SSM selling for £450 or the 16-80mm CZ barely getting above £200 for a mint example things are really getting bargain land. Sony's lack of action on A mount ...

Re: What am I missing? millennial photography...

Few points firstly I had anticipated that the upsurge in E mount users some of that would filter into the forums, at least a bit since the NEX name change. I use the word upsurge in a small way didn't expect mass postings or huge numbers by any means. The photo of Lennon by Warhol well it's just a p...

Re: What am I missing? millennial photography...

115 views no comments? Or perhaps I'm being a bit cruel?
Of maybe the rise of the phone means composition/exposure are to be mostly ignored!

Re: KM5D sensor failure?

I'm not complaining there is a problem (used both bodies a lot got my money's worth out of them and then some), I was just curious as to what the issue is. There is an interesting development I have noticed...that is if I take a second shot straight away afterwards it's fine, I also tried it in cont...

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

I rarely contribute to discussions, being a keen and serious amateur who feels that he has little to contribute and a lot to learn. HoweverI find this discussion extremely shallow. I used to use Lightroom, but DxO is where all me shots go before I even look at them; its automatic treatment gets the...

Re: Sony Alpha A99 Field Test Report

IMO a pretty silly article "In short, ISO is an increasingly shaky metaphor that promotes misunderstanding, obscures what your camera is doing and robs us of the tools we need to get the most out of our cameras. Isn’t it time for something better?" Most people with an interest in photograp...

Re: Sony a77iii rumor

A year later and still no news this is quite a long time since the A77II came out (4 years), no doubt people will be watching to see if something turns up (ie the next 6 months) if it doesn't...well :shock:

What am I missing? millennial photography...

Friend of mine recently got interested in photography (late 20's) and told me about how they want to be like Jessica Kobeissi. I had heard of her but... never taken any notice didn't look at her work but I did recently. https://www.instagram.com/jessicakobeissi/?hl=en I'm a bit lost for words as the...

Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2

I borrowed this off a friend and his 5dMkIII to test. I will be doing a video review on this when I have time to edit the footage. As far as I can see it's only Canon and Nikon mounts. Beast of a lens some heft but very well built and I'm impressed with the image quality, it's very usable wide open ...
