blah blah blah ..cannon stays cannon ..all the new shiny freaks will rush on buying a camera that is basically the same as the one they had 3 years ago .no true innovation from cannon for a long while now .
just for once i wish they would atleast try to innovate something new
Rick Knepper: Looking at the images at the file size I commonly use, moire is hardly an issue. OTOH, moderate cropping would probably bring the moire out into the open. But, image quality is not the bottleneck for me here. A fixed 35mm FL is the problem. A 28mm lens would be better for my style but then, deeper cropping would be occasionally necessary which would tend to expose the moire and whatever noise that might be present more readily so, hmmm...
I agree with others on the price. It's a non-started for me. This cam vs a the price of a D800 (on rebate)? No contest.
I also agree with others concerning the size and weight. Sony has demonstrated that it is possible to get a FF sensor into a small package. One of the three, C&NorS, should design a FF DSLR for compactness of size and weight and see if it sells.
comparing the two cams is the real problem here
while the D800 or D600 are cams u can change lenses with ..big cams the sony are anything but...first the obvious ..no lens changes..second..they are small and meant to be very non obtrusive while providing with a leica like quality ...if u judge them by that they do a lot better then a leica and a whole lot cheaper ..not to mention the best fixed lens + D600 combo u can pit against them .
its all a matter of style...I for one do not have that style and in that price i most likely same as u would always opt for something with a non fixed lens .\
as usual Sony left the traditional guys with something something in their hands hanging :(what about the A580 ?!!!!! what about it?!!
Stephen McDonald: I'd like to know just what "engineering feat" Panasonic performed to make it possible to have F2.8 at 600mm. For many of my longrange shots, I wouldn't want an even more shallow DOF at 600mm. I'd have to manually stop-down the aperture, slowing the shooting process. If the aperture stayed wide in video mode at high zoom points and couldn't be manually controled, that would be bad. For many sports and wildlife videos, I'd want maximum DOF.
macro portraits .artistic....u name it f2.8 is very very impressive...if u wanne find how much look for regular full f2.8 on the market..see how they cost
seriously do you have any idea how much each of this inks costs???? its much cheaper and better to get them done at some pro printing store with not a 800 euros machine but 20000 euros Canon printer ...much cheaper in the long run
jonikon: After test driving both the Sony NEX and Nikon V1, I feel that Nikon has the better camera for moving subject photography. The Sony NEX has better high ISO IQ, but the Nikon V1 has much faster and more accurate tracking focusing, and that is even more important than high ISO IQ in any camera. (How many times have you heard someone with a pocket camera complain they missed the shot because the camera was too slow?) The focusing speed and accuracy of the V1 is surprisingly fast, and puts the Sony NEX cameras pocket camera focusing system to shame. Also the Nikon lenses are much better optically and more compact than the over-sized, overprices and optically poor Sony NEX lenses (check the reviews!). I think Nikon has a winner with their new Nikon 1 system. The powered zoom lenses (that other systems lack), and more powerful telephoto power of the smaller sensor size will be Nikon's advantage, and make the Nikon 1 system the darling of soccer moms everywhere!
Best regards, Jon
thats really funny since these smallest cameras were not made for sport tracking nor do any of them have the lens for that ...so searching through to a camera which does that is funny ..more over since its low iso rating the V1 J1 cant do a proper sport to print it big...something like football night is quite simply beyond any A4 and above big prints from them.
so yea..the Nex's may use contrast detection which is slower than the SLR's full size phase detection ..yet the Nex's and the V1 J1 nor the 4/3 were ever made to be "sport cams"
and as for "poor sony lenses" i suggest u go look at the real numbers at photozone.de ..u might be surprised.
in all honestly i highly doubt u even test drived a nex...much less the nex nex5N to be talking like that..why dont u educate ur self and go into the Nex forums and see what is really true..
and Troj..well put :)
that deblurring video is one amazing feat out of ADOBE....now when is it gonna be out..u better put it on ur upcoming CS6
joshdphoto: Oh gosh, I really hope this is a joke. How is this a replacement to the 1Ds MK3?
I've owned all the 1 series cameras but will definitely not be buying this one. Hmmm... something wrong when you can buy a higher spec Sony with higher MP under $1000 USD. Perhaps an "s" version is in the works - I hope so! High FPS not of much use to studio shooters. I don't even care about DR!
Very doubtful of the claims of files that can be "up-sized". Sure, low noise is great, but if the detail is not there, the detail is not there. I've used a Fuji S2...
Maybe time to switch (back) to Nikon or Mamiya (with Phase One)? Wow! I never thought I would be writing that sentence!
For other photographers who use Canon in a studio environment, I think this will be a big disappointment.
you reffer to the A65...and i would read Sony's forums ..people are livid that instead of creating a higher ISO able camera using the great 16mp sensor ..Sony put out the 24mp sensor just so it would appeal all the idiots running around MP for no reasons...the 24mp sensor has slightly less IQ then the 16mp ..so instead of upping the ISO they upped the MP count..
i for one for all my previous bashing on Canon am glad they put "just" a 18mp sensor..this is the way all companies should go ..less then 20mp sensor with ultra high ISO ability ..200K is impressive..and also 14fps ..nice.
if u consider the A77 and Sony's special abilities as gimmicks no serious photographer would take notice off..its just goes to show u never really used any of those to begin with ...
heee just a Nex wannabe ..good thing about it is that they will keep sony's guys on their toes ..good for us :)
i dont get it .why make a 18-200mm when the ruling class are at 18-250mm ..???
lol i can get right now a nex3 + lens for less then 400$ and u want double that for 3X times smaller sensor cam?? what drugs are u on
