Thread: New phenomena of tablet computer cameras with LF-sized viewing

    Re: New phenomena of tablet computer cameras with LF-sized viewing

    I am waiting for a tablet that will project a hologram in front of me so I don't have to look at the tablet to take a picture, and the holograms will mean I also don't have to engage with the real world ever again....

One reason I haven't used it very often is that I hate the method of composing (i.e. zooming in and out) on the III as opposed to the II which to me seemed much easier. Don't have a IV so I don't know what that's like. I'm sure people who are more serious or knowledgeable about this kind of photography could provide more and better information.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Isn't Phase One about to sell a new series of digital camera backs with wireless connection ?

    Like that one could imagin that you mount your tablet computer above your camera and the display actually shows what the digital back is recording in life view. that would give an electronic viewfinder the size of your tablet and a digital sensor with up to 80 megapixel...

    I'm working on a patent for a digital darkcloth ... Ain't it fun to make life ninety times more complicated and expensive than
    it needs to be?

    just a note - the quality from the tablets just "sucks" ...
    but on the out side it is impressive, but that is about it !
    the image is crapy did a test run - just had to -- I was 2 months ago
    some where here in the city [Athens ] with the Linhoff 4x5 taking some photos, well, at some point a tourist from China
    was standing next to me copying the shoot I was doing with a Tablet [whatsyou callit]
    at first I was Laughing .... then I got to thinking what a f$#%ing show off this person was...well
    anyway went to some store asked if I try one out [try out the whatsyou callit] DID the photos are only low res and crappy.
    But if you look at one person that holds it you say Hey WoW!! thats where B.S. starts.

    just had to say these few words on this or I would have burst !

    cheers

    One of many evolutionary dead ends, no doubt.... but somewhere along the line somebody will hit the nail on the head.
    Whether a smart patent ever gets past the marketing monkeys is a different story.

    And once you've made the exposure, you have to lay the iPad flat and make a rocking motion to "develop" the image. And you get a negative. Then you have to make the print, including burning and dodging movements made by waving your hands above the screen.

    Wow, would people be giving you funny looks!

    Someone who gets it! The tablet screen acting as GG (with built-in 10x zoom, no loupe needed) WYSIWYG for a DSLR with an excellent lens - flat stitch to 50-60 MP...
