PedroMZ: Ok now let us discuss 16mp. Everybody talks down the 16mp sensors as being inadequate nowadays. It is certainly adequate for A3 . I look at my Olympus OM-1 and am beginning to feel that it cannot be taken seriously anymore.yet 5 yrs ago professional photographers (I am a rank amateur) seemed to be quite happy with 12MP . I have seen great magazine photos taken with cameras of this sort of resolution in the past. What is adequate? Only polite comments requested-thanks.

16 is more than adequate. I agree with your comments

Let the battle commence. If this camera performs as well as it should, it will be superb and a real threat to the competition.

That one is not bad at all, but if shot from a moving vehicle it will not be tack sharp due to vibrations..

John Mackay: I wish I could afford to fly to London to see this exhibition. I was so sad at his passing. I remember Yul Brynner mainly for his portrayal of the rogue cowboy in the movie Westworld and for for his role in the TV anti-smoking campaign when I was a kid (I'm 50 now) His words still ringing in my ears "Whatever you do, don't smoke." I never knew he was an avid photographer. I wish some of these exhibitions could make it online so to speak so everyone could enjoy them.

I may get some flak for this, but I am appalled. Yul Brynner was one of my favourite actors, but his photographs in terms of technical quality are average at best. His subject matter was I admit superb, but an exhibition of only 19 avearge photos, is not my idea of a quality exhibition. Add to that a price of 3000 pounds sterling per print and I am stunned..

On article It's all about the details (51 comments in total)

To write any article based on software techniques, the author has to talk about the software they use. Whether there is a commercial link or not is irrelevant.

A good article and I have learned something I didn't know before..

Limited it may be but it allows you to view ALL files, including non RAW images at the same time. A good idea. Thanks to Microsoft for it....
