I would like to offer that I in fact prefer a button to switch between evf and LCD. I became quite frustrated when my em5 thought my hand was my head and blanked the LCD just as I was going to use it.
For me. This grip makes it the first sensible nex body.
groucher: Impressive result but why suffer for your art? The stitching could have been done in about 2 minutes in PTGUI (or similar) and the local adjustments would have been far easier in NX2. Photo$hop has its good points (e.g. lettering, free transformation and canvas sizing) but the type of work required for this example isn't exactly its forte.
yes you can
I would only point out that the photo shows the A M markings, not the M/A & M markings I would have expected based on the text. Pre-production photo?
Seems perfect for the soon to be announced :-P D400 !!! yahoo...
Heie2: I am a Pentaxian fanboy through and through, but I say this in the most objective way possible:
The best value for money DSLR's/MILC's under $1000 are the Pentax K-500 ($595 w/ 18-55 kit lens), Pentax K-50 ($696 body or $776 w/ Weather Resistant kit lens), Pentax K-5 ($500 used body - discontinued), with the number one spot for "best bang for your buck" across the photographic world given to the Pentax K-30 ($479 body) and the Pentax K-01 ($299 w/ 40mm pancake lens) despite what is undeniably a controversial body design for DSLR/Mirrorless, respectively.
Even the lowest entry level isn't skipped over for $1000+ features such as 100% penta PRISM viewfinders and DUAL command dials.
Anyone that tells you otherwise is delusional.
Also to consider that K mount will take those M42's with adapters, but F mount can't due to register depth. I use the old lenses on the EM5- but had I gotten a Pentax, I would have had a larger and better sensor ... I can't adapt (without gimics) the M42's to the D90 I have.
Summer2379: Hi everyone,
Regarding Cosima lens I am having a burning question which I cannot find the answer despite many many google search...
May I ask which adapter I need to use an old Cosima 28-210 f3.5-5.6 for NeX 7. I have no idea at all, kindly help!!
Thank you very much!
( sorry if I post the wrong place )
it was PROBABLY a MD mount - but it may have been manufactured in other mounts, so unless you know what mount it is, there is no answer possible.
Gesture: I'd like to see Cosina complete the circle and issue its own digital camera (Epson RD-1 successor). Would love it to take LTM lenses like the RD-1, but that's a dream. How many cameras has Cosina built off that one chassis. (Olympus, Nikon, Bessa, Zeiss Ikon, ...)
Many of us would be interested, however, I suspect the smart move would be to use some kind of EVF rather than try to build a new rangefinder. Heck, I would probably want just an update of th RD-1, say with and APSc sensor and IBIS for those occasional times it is useful to me. Ricoh might want to do something like this since they have all the components already, but otherwise (excluding the IS) the Fuji X platform seems to fit the need better than a pure rangefinder platform with a digital sensor.
Well, having just acquired and started to use my first VC lens, I say carry on. These lenses are not for everyone, and the useless comparisons to the 35mm film size will continue forever. What I know is that these lenses are made to a very high standard, they are excellent mechanical lenses and if you are into things where auto-focus is either not necessary or a hindrance, then this is a lens to consider if you shoot on the m43 platform. The comments always seem to reflect some strange notion that each and every lens needs to meet each and everyone's unique un-achievable desires.
Since this is the 3rd VC lens purpose built for the m43 platform, they must be happy with sales and the users who actually have these lenses do seem to want more of them.
It's great. Someone is thinking of something different with regard to image making tools. I bet that despite the photographers complaints, they will make money on this, and we need them to be profitable to continue to exist. It might not be my cup of tea, but that's only because I am too poor and therefore too jealous.
I for one am taking a deep breath and holding ...
The teaser now looks like the Olympus Body Cap lens...
Let's be honest, how many NON pros were buying PRO accounts, and what did PRO mean anyway ??? The vast vast majority of Flickr users are undoubtedly NOT Professional Photographers.
On the EVF. I have an EP3 and VF2. I don't use the VF2 very much at all, but like the option of being able to put it on. What I REALLY want however is a little extension cord to allow me to hold my camera somewhere other than in front of my eye. A little connector cable couldn't cost much to make.... now that would be nice.
mumintroll: So you didn't put Sigma raw's because you cannot use it in your converter? Why you din't use sigma converter? JEEEZUS So you shouldn't use sigma at all. You just killed best advantage of sigma which are absolutely suberb raw files.
THANK YOU for a civilized discussion.
I have the camera. I like it for what it is made for - my in the pocket travel camera. I think DPR comments and insights are right on the money. I'm going to love this camera for a long time and take it with me on all my trips. Build quality superb. Not much qwerkier than my wife - lets say moody at times, but I still love her.
zakk9: You are all wrong. Google Leica R8 or R9. The G6 is a miniature copy :)
Apart from that, it looks like a capable camera. Pity that they omitted the multi-aspect feature though. Now the question is: Did they invent yet another battery or does it use one from another camera?
That's exactly what I was going to post. Looking a lot like a Leica R .. R ? hmm, M, R, I can see it.
Chuck Lantz: I have a background in limited edition prints. Not photos, but graphics, and the legal principal is the same. If I do an edition of one image using one type of printmaking, for example a plate etching, I can then legally do an entirely new - and legal - edition using serigraphy, stone litho, or whatever, still using the same image.
As someone else has commented, I could even do another edition of the same image, but using different colors or paper, and again, it would legally be a separate and unique edition.
The key is in how each edition is described by the artist. So, "An edition of 100 plate-etching images on d'Arches cold-pressed paper" would be legally unique from "100 plate-etched images on DFK Rives paper" , even if the images were identical.
That is interesting, but not what I as a buyer of such art would expect. Overall, I would respectfully submit that I was duped. Now, exposed, caveat emptor.
I say it looks cute, even my wife thinks so. That means a sale, and I bet it will take pictures just fine. Not every bloody camera needs RAW and 1000 ft depth with 4k video, it just needs to do better than a phone and be capable of doing something your phone is not.
GeorgeFellows: Bit worried about the dynamic range...probably best to wait for the full review to tell me and not my eyes, but those plane shots have some awfully clipped highlights (in my eyes). Sold my X100 recently to get a 60D so I can shoot my bros wedding, might buy another X100 but the image quality doesn't look any better (especially not for another £800) on the S and I don't need super fast autofocus etc... for the shots I would use it for.
it might evoke nostalgia for some of us, but hopefully for others it will open their eyes to a different way of taking pictures...
wolfeel: The whole issue boils down to how much is her work worth?
Is it $40 as the station claims or is it $2,000 as she claims. If they cannot reach a settlement, she will have to pursue this matter through the small claims court. If I recall it costs $75 to file a claim. If she can convince the JP that her work sells for what she is asking for, the station will have no choice but to pay.
I think Wolfeel has the situation summarized. Either you prove the radio station has a pattern of bad behavior, or willfully and with full knowledge used the image, it's hard to prove harm. Once digitized, those images have a life of their own it seems.
