I guess I'm in for another endless browser malfunction google .
Sidenote: I have tried Iridient and it was ghastly, so I hope to send the developer a screenshot of how it opened my RAW. He was very prompt replying when I asked about the original subject of this thread, so I hope he can explain what is happening to my file from a camera that it is supposed to support and does in fact appear in their list of input. It came out as an overexposed magenta only image. Pretty disconcerting, since ACR and several other apps handle it nicely.

I'm not criticizing their strategy so much as hoping that they'll create a quality product that is a bit more on the cutting edge ... and yet still attainable to serious photographers, as opposed to just the rich.

They are a smallish company, but they seem to have the resources to open dedicated stores around the world, much like high-end jewelers and clothiers, e.g. Tiffany & Co., Gucci, Polo, Yves Saint Laurent, etc.

Hi xsd862011, are you the person from HK?

I did reply. I said that I had another person that was considering the back at the asking price first and that I would be in touch with you after that if this doesn't eventuate.

Cheers Paul

I gave a "trial run" to one of them today, and she asked what an f stop is.  These people want to use their cell phones for this.  No, I don't think stitching is viable for them.

Hi Lynn

Thanks for the post - I was beginning to wonder if anybody was out there.  The R2000 apparently replaced the R1900 and InkjetMall shows it as a supported printer for piezography inks (but I don't see any cartridges for it).  The Live Chat sounds like a good idea - I still haven't heard from them so I'll try it tomorrow.

Thanks again for the help.

I thought the main reason the Canon 1.2 existed was for bragging rights since Nikon can't match it with an AF design (or so goes the folklore regarding smaller size of F mount). I have no idea if this is really true and who cares anyway.

You can mount an AIS Nikon 50/1.2 on any F-mount camera. Works fine given the issues with reasonably fast & accurate manual focusing on cameras not designed for this. If you've had the chance to give the Canon 50/1.2 a spin you may've noticed it doesn't actually offer any speed advantage at f/1.2 compared to 1.4, at least not on a 135 format camera. (The camera in Av mode may suggest a slightly faster shutter speed at f/1.2 relative to 1.4...but look carefully at the actual photos.) The same is true of other f/1.2 lenses, at least those I've used. You will get marginally shallower DOF, though. It's a distinctive look, and one that has appeal. Dunno why Nikon currently isn't interested in f/1.2...maybe they're just more practical-minded right now than Canon.   Smiley

The Canon 50mm f1.2 is famous for its super sweet look (which is what matters for its informed users), but it is a poor lens technically at all apertures. It is absolutely not in the same class as the new Sigma.

Yep, exactly. I don't own the 50L because its sharp. I just love the look of the images it produces.

I'd need to understand your point before I get it.
I'm tired, obstinate, and unconvinced Smiley
Let me sleep on this ...
Just read up on how active pixel CMOS sensors work, and on the read noise and DR measurements for the best ones compared to the best CCDs. Or look at the deep shadows in samples for a quick demo of the far lower noise floor of good CMOS.  The key is the word "active"!

I knew I shouldn't have mentioned that Michael Reichmann guy. And for the record, those who I listed have and continue to inspire me with their work.  Smiley
