I am looking fwd to the Dxomark speed/ISO scores for this a6300.

I've only found out, just yesterday, that even the older a6000 has a fantastic Dxomark ISO score of 1350. That is pretty impressive for an APSC sensor (Fuji X100 has a 1000 score for example). To put it in better perspective - the 5D classic has a similar ISO score of 1368.

If the new a6300 scores a little bit higher, maybe somewhere in between the 5D classic(1368) and 5DII(1815), I would be very happy with this and wouldn't mind giving up my old FF camera for it.

On Connect post New anamorphic adapter lens for iPhone 5/5s (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

fooddudeone: Most awesome thing I've seen in a while!

Was never a fan of all these iPhone lens attachments (might as well use/buy a p&s camera) ..but this is something else! They're actually giving us something that isn't even possible without having to spend $1000-4000 on your dslr/mirrorless camera. Not to mention SIZE. A dslr/mirrorless anamorphic rig will be Huge - camera, mf lens, adapter mounts, anamorphic adapter, possibly rails and extras.

This gives us a real anamorphic lens and aesthetic that truly fits in your pocket - the aspect ratio, the slight distortion and most importantly the vertically stretched bokeh and the flares.

Iphone video IQ is decent and easy to use...especially just for home/travel/hobby videos..and this anamorphic adapter, will make a killer street anamorphic video camera.

I dont really give a hoot what people think. I just like the anamorphic aesthetic/look for my own personal video projects. I guess now that you mention it there are videographers that just want to look like a film maker..and others who just do it for fun and love doing it. I would never want to be a pro film maker in the first place (they're the most egotistical/pretentious creatives I have ever known).

I haven't owned an anamorphic lens in a while. I've had an Isco, 36, Isco 42, Kowa B&H and a Moller Bolex 19/1.5. So I am def excited for this product and will definitely buy it once it's available.

$125 is a bargain for an anamorphic lens. I don't care about perfect IQ nor lens sharpness... $1000+ anamorphic lenses aren't super sharp anyways compared to still image lenses... it's all about aesthetics and the look.

On article High-end pocketable compacts roundup (2013) (266 comments in total)

I am very happy that they didn't include the Ricoh GR (imo, the very Best "pocket camera" of all time...well, at least, to date). Excluding it from this list means that less people will have it and don't know what "that mysterious/neat/sleek/understated camera" is when they see it on the streets :) ...the GR will be more obscure in the best possible way and only a camera for people in the know.

fooddudeone: Hi Mr. Kimio Maki (or, the Sony people reading this),

Want to make something new that will knock the socks off everyone and their grandmama?

Make a true pocketable FF camera with a fixed lens (28mm, 35mm or 50mm)...similar to the size and ergonomics of the Ricoh GR. Since Ricoh isn't making a true pocketable FF camera just yet (only an APSC currently; which is still good), why don't you beat them to the punch? ;)

Yes, your RX1 is a super amazing camera with almost unbeatable image and build quality. But, it's a bit expensive and a bit large still (because of that fast f2.0 lens). Why not make a more affordable and much smaller FF pocket camera? Maybe just a 2.8 lens? Maybe retractable lens?

Make this camera and you will rock the photography world and bring it to its' knees...again ;)

Thanks

Petition:

If you want Sony to make a "True Pocketable" FF compact camera with a fixed lens (smaller f2.8 lens to make it "truly pocketable;" maybe similar in size to the GR or ordinary p&s size) , please send an email/message to them with the provided link below. A representative got back to me really quickly after I sent them a message; and said they will definitely note it, as they take customer requests very seriously.

On article Just Posted: Ricoh GR Review (214 comments in total)

How come no one mentions the GR's beautiful noise rendering? If you go on the noise comparison page, then click NR Off for all comparative cameras, then push the ISO to 6400, 12k and 25k, you will notice the GR has the nicest looking noise. The Coolpix A looks very smudgy with numerous red blotches, the X100s is the cleanest but it's still a little smudged, and the FF RX1 is also smudged and has a couple red blotches. The GR is the only camera with not a single red blotch nor smudge, even at 25.6k iso; it has an extremely appealing and attractive noise pattern that looks natural..almost like film.

fooddudeone: No Manual Exposure for Video? :( ...none for CoolPix A either??

If either of these had Manual Video control, I would easily sell my OMD Now and get one of these :)

Not really a "big time" video work is expected from it..but it's such a standard/easy/normal feature nowadays on all cameras that shoot video nowadays - manual control. It's more common sense to implement it; especially on a prosumer/enthusiast camera such as this..in addition to having it's own Video Mode on the dial. It's kinda misleading - Video on Mode dial (which yells, "I'm a video camera too"), top of the line compact, large APSC sensor, more expensive than the ordinary p&s. VR/IBIS isn't the issue either..since the only camera that has a usable/good/decent IBIS for video is the OMD; and that hasn't stopped the other 98% of cameras out there having manual video exp, has it? Having manual control is just a good thing and should be standard if you want usable video..unless you like your videos to unexpectedly jump focus and exposure every second. They shouldn't even have bothered with Video on the mode dial, if it the video feature was going to be this lame.

.....also, can you Lock the focus point before hitting the video Rec button. Having the focus unexpectedly track/shift while recording would be very annoying/unusable as well...

@ Zvonimir: Ahh, I see. I was confused because in the DPR comparison page of GR vs Coolpix A, it states " Exposure control in movies: None (GR) vs Exposure Comp (Coolpix A). They weren't really precise in what they meant though; I guess they meant WHILE it is recording, because I just read the Coolpix A video-exposure can definitely be set, but before hitting the Red button (which is totally good enough; as that's what I always do on my old 5DII, 60D and OMD anyways (I never change exposure While recording)).

So, is there a chance that the GR's video-exposure can be manually set and locked-on before hitting the video Rec button??? (instead of possibly its' ap/ss/iso jumping all over the place while recording - that would be very annoying/unusable)....I think so, ya? It's just common sense to have it this way. That's all one really needs anyways- lock exposure before hitting video Rec ;)

I definitely want the GR over the Nikon - slimmer, lighter, sleeker, blacker and sharper lens.

Let's all start messaging Olympus and request for higher-bitrates, 24p and better video codecs:

Yeah... defo the best firmware.. just as big a deal as back in the day when Canon gave the 5D2 manual exposure for video. Now us video heads can use any MF lens!

I also wrote them a new short message:

"Thank you for giving us IBIS for adapted lenses in Video-mode.

In the future, can you please give us a firmware update with the following; in order to make this THE best HDSLR video-camera on the market And the ONLY with IBIS?

~ 24p: Every single other HDSLR has this option. Might as well give the OMD this options as it's also the only HDSLR with IBIS.

~ Higher video bitrates: Even though the OMD is the only HDSLR with a fantastic IBIS, at the same time it has the least amount of video-bitrate out of any other HDSLR. 30-50mbps would be perfect.

Thanks"

fooddudeone: Just got mine yesterday.... Love it!

3200 iso Videos are soo clean! Cleaner than my old 5N And 5D2!!!

And of course, IBIS. Makes videos look like they were shot on a tripod, fluid head or shoulder-rig. No more need to lug around big gear for casual shooting and no more shaky footage! Awesomeness!

So far... my only gripe... no magnify in Video mode; not even with MF assist nor if setting Fn2 to
muti-function" (which includes Magnify in its' included 4 quick-chose-options). I guess I can switch from still modes to video modes quickly though. Also noticed a small bug. If your Video-mode Exp setting is set to M, it [I]Has[/I] to be in video-mode. Ie: if you hit the video-record button in m/s/a/p, even if video-mode exp. setting in the menu is set to M, it will record in Auto-Exp.

Yes yes! Great tip!

No more vimeo/YT user-comments saying, "hmmm, oops, I must've left Video-mode on Auto-exp, drats!" ;)

corander: Genius!

...I thought of this in the back of my head but didn't try it, because I thought the custom setting would affect/disable the button in Video-Mode-Dial too.

Thx!

edit: Just did it...doing this makes the main-shutter-stills-button the video-record button now, while leaving the custom-setting for the video-red-button as is.. awesome!

....So you have to make sure your left mode-knob is always on Video-Mode if you want to shoot Manual Video...not a huge deal, but I can see that I and others will forget from time to time, especially in the heat of the moment when out shooting... and might come home to find out you just captured a bunch of clips, that are ruined because it's on auto-exposure.
