Not to be picky, but 2000 is the last year of 20th century...
Quite a self contradictory comparison table, either their math has gone haywire, or they are trying to spin this up to be something much bigger than it actually is.
How could a beyer pattern with half of the green pixel replaced have worse spatial color artifacts than ones with reference sample or ones with ALL the green pixel replaced.
This is just absurd...
Blake Willis: Give me this technology in the G1X's replacement with a lens that's faster than f/4 on the long end & I'll be all over it!
I might just ditch NEX-6 for that (which I ditched G1X for)... But then again, NEX-6 with Canon FD lens (with Lens Turbo) is very very nice too...
Damn, maybe they can make EOS M^2 or something like that?
rfsIII: What they're not telling you is that "organic" is just another word for "carbon-based life form." Bottom line: this sensor is alive; it's a creature that was either discovered or genetically engineered to live inside your camera and translate photons into images (remember the bird that lived inside Fred Flintstone's camera and chiseled pictures onto stone tablets? Same principle, different species). Nobody tell PETA or they'll put the kibosh on the whole thing.
Monster slime will ooze out of your camera if you do not regularly worship it. DO NOT WIPE SENSOR WITH HOLY WATER!!!
skimble: wait you get the same camera from Panasonic for 1500 bucks
Did they mean "Originally designed" then it got out of hand fast, then they have to phone Panasonic or some other electronic giants to put the rest together and make sure the electronics part work?
Greg Gebhardt: I love Leica but not going to do a f3.5 to 6.4 lens at this price.
Gimme that camera, I'd be happy as pie, do remember to pack the receipt with it, I'll be taking it back for return. I will be able to use the cash to buy something more useful.
starwolfy: The more I read the comments and the negativity, the more I want to buy this camera...
Cruise it is, don't mind me having my dinner in one of the lifeboats...
KHemmelman: I don't do street photography because I don't want the hassle of dealing with complete strangers who are most likely going to be suspicious of me and not want to sign a model release. I suspect this guy is the same way, so he took the easy way out and does it secretly without permission or approval. Basically a roving peeping-tom. I have to say, what he is doing is a real "cheap shot". (no pun intended)
Well said. Legal laws define the absolutely lowest standard, they define guilty or not. You can be an absolute anus and still be legal.
But it is nice to see a lot of people prefer to stay out of the anushole category by their own free will, instead of under legal threats.
Why, because you've been screamed at for taking photos without asking?
Or did you tried to blind them first with a few well aimed studio strobes?
franco montana: google street view does the same
No, Google blur out a lot of stuff, and they do not blind you with massive strobes.
Google would have lost quite a few streetview cars if they tried to add those stupid strobes on it.
zycamaniac: Yeah, zap people in the street for your own gain and call it art.
I can see that there will soon be a newspaper headline talking about an obnoxious camera car guy getting shot, with car set aflame via Molotov Cocktail.
I suppose those gangbangers might want to reuse it for their next crime...
ryansholl: In this day and age, I'm not certain that being intentionally flashed by high-powered strobes couldn't be passed as assault.
Sue him for irreparable retina, emotional and psychological damage.
calijente: Step 2: Bigger lights on a motorcycle, taking pictures from the sidewalk.
Step 3: Even bigger lights on a Segway, taking pictures in a shopping mall while being chased by security (also on Segways). Now THAT would impress me!
I'd love to see the Segway chase...
And if the shot is flattering with polite request, I think a lot of people would be glad to give the permission.
If not, it's their face, it's their body, who are we to force them to be in our pictures?
Yeah, zap people in the street for your own gain and call it art.
About time Rambus does something useful.
Mescalamba: One adapter..
..and current NEX + Canon dSLR users have no need for EOS M. And believe me, theres plenty of these guys. :)
Yeah, how about exposure bracketing? I'm not saying Sony is generally bad or something, as I said, RX100 is quite acceptable.
I just feel really puzzled why Sony should make RX100 work quite logically, while NEX-6's system is totally whacked with 75% of every category's menu options stuffed into the system menu. The pretty icons and stuff simply isn't helping.
Talking about worst UI, old olympus setup seems to be alright, but the far worse I've ever seen is old Kodak cameras. It is about as easy to read as extraterrestrial pictograph language.
Well, Sony's RX-100 menu was quite easy to live with, for some reason their NEX is a whole different story. All the functions are grouped really weirdly. Ah well...
cseiler: $399 ????!!! Whouahahahahahahahhhhhhaaaaahahah...
What do they do? Cut the mount out of Rebel bodies?
It's actually not that expensive to pay someone to crack the I2C communication between the lens/camera
I was about to become a Canon/Sony NEX user when I got my NEX-6 last week. But it was truly a maddening experience, the menu system while cute, is extremely badly designed. If they have paid half as much effort into menu design as they have paid for the graphics, it would have been much better. Hell, just copy the menu system on the RX-100 and it would have been great.
And don't get me started on the stupid app system, I have no idea why someone would design such a cumbersome system.
The camera is going back to the mail order outfit I got it from, I guess I'm back to waiting for the release of EOS 6 or something that is better than EOS M.
Simple camera performance of NEX-6 is great, but all the little annoying things added up was too much...
