    .Hi, Sig ! Very good sets that also will identify itself as 'a certain era's' photos in years to come. Masks certainly made signature presences in all of our activities with good reason.I love the pastel colour palette of the costumes against the dark background. What's the name of the performance they are dancing to, […]

    Yes, breathing through masks makes the dancing a little harder. For those of us who have experience dancing in roles that require wearing things like Mouse King and Nutcracker heads, it's business as usual. But now it seems the other dancers have acquired some empathy for us, having to deal with the breathing restrictions first […]

    Yeah ... Masked dancers! This is certainly something extraordinary. How do they manage to breathe like that, and even dance? When will it all end with the virus ... The pictures are certainly interesting.Statistics: Posted by ValeryD — Mon Oct 19, 2020 6:41 am

Like Mike Johnston writing in The On-Line Photographer, I’m aware that any attempt to line up one or more cameras and show comparison images or make judgements is on to a loser from the start. And any webmaster who puts an external link in the first half dozen words of a new post is losing . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 900 and Nikon D3X raw file noise comparison

Studio comparison A900, 5DMkII, D3X

This set of full size shots was taken with the still life left set up, because the Nikon and Canon cameras were not here at the same time. It compares the A900, 5DMkII and D3X using the converters supplied by the makers – Image Data Converter SR2, Digital Photo Professional, and Capture NX2. Each small . . . → Read More: Studio comparison A900, 5DMkII, D3X

Nikon D90 – 4.5fps, HD video, 12 megapixels CMOS

Nikon has introduced some of the technologies we might expect to see from Sony, apparently using the IMX021 sensor (the pixel count on the long edge is 4288, rather than 4272 as normally processed from a Sony Alpha 700 file, but this is within the usual limits of different raw conversions).

Nikon D3X 24.4 megapixel sensor leak
