Top Ten: The significance of today’s announcements

quality

A New Bayer Filter set? So there isn’t an earth shaking 1,000 megapixel announcment? I am not getting 50,000 ISO either? And they only changed a silly filter pattern? I have anticipated hearing some extreme reactions to today’s announcements from Phase One.   On the surface it might be hard to understand why subtle changes to a filter pattern on a sensor can really matter.  And to these questions let … Read More →

A few hours with the Phase One Achromatic IQ3 100

  We received our first Phase One IQ3 100 Achromatic back on Friday.   There has been strong anticipation of this back since its release due to all the feature improvements over the previous Achromatic P45+ and IQ260.  So I decided to grab it and shoot it for a few hours over the weekend.  I strongly believe that you can’t support a product properly unless you have had it in … Read More →

phaseonebanner

Every second year, the photo industry descends on a small German town to unveil their latest technology and innovation.  This marks the 26th year that I have been attending this strange happening they call Photokina in the gorgeous town of Koln. Thats correct, the English ignore that it is Koln, Deutschland, and we refer to it as Cologne, Germany.  There are complicated reasons tied to which tribe we originally recognized … Read More →

Why is “good enough” acceptable?

Dave_Gallagher

One of my supervisors at my first summer job in 1982 had a saying when he was satisfied with his task at hand, “It’s good enough for government work.”  In fact, we actually worked for a government agency, but I think that he would have said this regardless of our employer.  This adult really didn’t care whether the job was done right or wrong.  What mattered to him was that it … Read More →
