I'm curious. What df features does this snap illustrate?

Would the image look different if taken with a D800 or a Canon, and if so, how would it look different?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Well, it shows IS0 2000 performance which should be better than than D800 and any Canon. Colors and WB indoors are shown. Its actually a pretty nice shot with creamy nice short DOF of a 35 at 1.6. Its good to be reminded that that the DF is an awesome picture taking machine what ever one thinks of other aspects of it.

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Thanks Truman…Russel is actually a Danish-Swedish Farmdog…and very clever and curious…he immediately noticed that the chrome version Df was a new camera…but honestly speaking is even more interested in the activities in our kitchen….

Regards,

Rolf

PS my wife did the portrait on the wall

A lovely image with the small depth of field and colour tone. Nice pose too by Russell.

Funny but the bed looks very similar to our Tasmanian Oak one and similar colour duvet. Coincidentally there was a dog on our bed too this morning. Our 34kg Lab managed to sneak in and jump on and wake me up!

I think PerL pretty much summed up the features of Df that my image might illustrate…my personal experience is that Df is noticeably superior to D800 in low light and that AF is very snappy and accurate….

however, my main intention was to just post an image which I personally find humorous…also I prefer threads posting images rather than reading about sour grapes from people about equipment they don't have any experience with…

…there are so many cameras that I would not consider based on specs but I don't spend any energy posting about them

I'm not a fan of the camera, or of people's misguided views of which camera is superior to the other, like you said that's just reading about sour grapes. But I am a fan of threads started with images. Thank you for posting....

Thanks for posting this.

It's refreshing to see the results of what this camera can produce - great images, instead of all the arguments which this camera seems to invoke.

Nonsense, at ISO2000 a Canon 6D would do this shot just as well and a D800 would be so close as to make no difference.  It's just a snap of a dog in a bedroom by a guy that has just bought  DF, it may as well have been posted on snapyourfurryfriend.com

What is it with these grumpy, negative people? Maybe I should not have mentioned Canon?

Hope it doesn't ruin your day but I find the Df noticeably better in low light than my D800…have no experience with Canon 6D so I can't tell…my first DSLR was a Canon F1 so I have a bond to Canon too…regarding snaps taste is different…in Sweden we are very fond of snaps…(joke: snaps in Sweden is shot of vodka) ….anyway I liked your gallery very much…
