dlmccolm: Anyone know if it has a built-in intervalometer? If it does, it might make it to my camera bag - thx.
Of course it has, like it's sisters do for years.
D610 for me.
jimkahnw: Don't criticize Adobe for creating a way to protect its investment. They employ an army of coders to build Photoshop and at one time PS was the most pirated software on the internet. Software as complex and powerful as PS is not free, and Adobe is entitled to make a profit, especially if it supplying tools that others use to make a profit. Hence the Creative Cloud business model.
As a professional user of Photoshop, I have always purchased the upgrades as they were released. I also use some of the other tools available from Creative Cloud, so the cost of the subscription is really a bargain, especially when compared with the prior prices of boxed versions. It's the cost of doing business.
Those users who would select less capable software, mostly out of spite, are giving up a competitive advantage.
They don't employ an army of coders, I wish they would.
zodiacfml: MFT fixed lens please.
Panasonic cares because it makes no sense.
oluv: can someone tell me how canon manged to squeeze such a compact 15-60/2.8-5.8 lens into the G1 X, and panasonic only managed a 12-32 3.5-5.6?
even if the lens was not fixed (as it is with the G1 X) i still think it could be made similar in size to the 12-32 or x14-42.
when we have a small camera like the GM1, there should also be more really small lenses. i would even welcome collapsible primes, if it would allow them to be pancake-flat. have a look at the 40mm/2.8 pentax pancake, which even covers a fullframe sensor.
The most important attribute is the IQ and the G1 X's lens has a bad IQ.
TrojMacReady: As posted in the other thread:There's something odd going on with the A7R files in the comparison tool.For example all the daylight RAW shots in the tool, are nosier than the actual files available for download. In the tool it looks to have more noise than the D800, when you download the files from both, they are practically identical. A difference in sharpening applied to the files?
Here's an example:http://i40.tinypic.com/2pryagl.jpg
lol, that's not what I said, of course the tool doesn't do that. I said "files".
Are you looking at the files in a browser? Don't do that, some browsers apply filters.
plevyadophy: The bottom line is: all these cards, except the Eye-Fi cards, are rubbish in actual use.
There was a comparative review of these rivals to Eye-Fi cards published recently here on DPReview. Folks would do well to go read it and the associated comments.
The bottom line is the Toshiba FlashAir W-02 Class10 cards are excellent! I bet you haven't even used one.
No, the speed is unchanged: http://www.toshiba.co.jp/p-media/wwsite/flashair.htmThe FlashAir™ W-02 Class10 cards have been out for some time. They only added a 32GB card, released a new firmware and changed the name.
Sirandar: The interface may not be optimal, but it is Android, so 3rd party devs can make a new interface if Sammy releases enough info to let them
Samsung won't do that.
DigiMatt: Are you guys incapable of reading the English language? You don't have to agree with the way DXO scores, but they did clearly state the reason they knocked the score down. That reason is: not being sharp wide open and not being sharp across the frame until f11. How do you people make it through life without a basic reading comprehension ability?
"On the downside, sharpness is low at full-aperture and isn’t uniform across the frame until its stopped to f11. At larger apertures there’s as much as 30% deviation in sharpness from the center to corners."
"Individually the new Nikkor has the higher sharpness overall but the current 50mm is sharper at full aperture, while both are sharper than the AF-D model.
Stopped down to f2.8 and the new Nikkor is sharper in the centers than either but the outer field, edges and corners are similar to the old AF-D model and someway behind the current 50mm model until f11, where the new 58mm has high sharpness from corner-to-corner."
It is relevant at $1,699.95 for a 58/1.4.
Most photos aren't sharp but I guess that"s not the camera's fault.
Should be sharper.
Segaman: Interesting, i,m going to think twice about buying Nikoń´s D600, maybe just going to wait or get in the meanwhile a D7100
Still no spots on my D600 sensor after over 7,000 shots.
white shadow: I was looking anxiously for an upgrade to my GF1 but I think I may have to wait or get the E-P5.
I am not so concern about having an EVF but having one may be useful at times if it is good. In this case, the EVF is only "so-so" and worse, even suffer from "rainbow effect". Besides, the protruding eyecup gets in the way when one is trying to put it away in a pouch.
Panasonic's first attempt to include IBIS is not too good so the additional feature is a waste of time.
Although I shoot in Aperture Priority mode most of the time but I do shoot in P or Auto mode sometimes. Its tendancy to choose unnecessary smaller aperture while at these modes is disappointing.
Overall, its not too bad but would not convince me to rush in to buy one. Meanwhile, I will carry on using my faithful GF1 for Micro 4/3. The Oly EM-1 is tempting but maybe just a bit big for the format.
I may consider an E-P5 once I find out more about the "shutter shock" problem.
The IBIS in this one is actually pretty good, not a waste at all.
MrTaikitso: Lovely jubbly! Punchy, something only Nikon, Canon and Oly managed until now. (In my opinion as a former GH2 owner.) Looks like this new sensor ups the dynamic range a bit. Nice! :)
I still use a GH2 and the colors in JPG are indeed horrible but not an issue in RAW at all. Anyway, sunny light like in this shot helps a lot.
marike6: From the preview: "The choice of putting ISO and exposure compensation on the top left and adding locking buttons leaves me cold. In contrast I love the Fujifilm X-Pro1, because its traditional control dials are carefully-placed for ease of use."
They are? There are only two dials: Shutter speed and ISO. I can't imagine how they are more conveniently placed or well thought out.
The X-Pro1 has no ISO dial so you need the Q menu or Fn button for ISO. And using Auto ISO, you have the camera defaulting to 1/30 minimum which is barely passable for handholding.
As long as the DF has the current ISO setting display in the VF, you could theoretically change ISO without removing the camera from your eye. There is no difference. Besides with the great D4 high ISO ability, there will be a ton of Auto ISO shooters.
As far as locks on dials, all X100 users who have accidentally moved the EV compensation dial will tell you how important the locks for dials are.
For God's sake, it's just a camera. They can call it whatever they want.
Gesture: The more I look at this camera, the less it amazes. Love the sensor size and type, all the technology, fond memories of film era SLRs, but what is missing is that Nikon didn't try to re-think the interface for a digital SLR. Over the years, the digital SLR has come to resemble the flight deck of the space shuttle. Let's figure out how to simplify, yet gain ergonomic power, not simply patch on every conceivable interface control.
Sony isn't going to build any more NEX anyway...
Daniel Bliss: Hmm, they blew it. Dials, easy on the eyes, easy to manipulate, but wrecked by all the locking pins; Compatibility with all the manual lenses, totally welcomed, undermined by the lack of interchangeable focusing screens; a sensor that's less of a data hog than some I could mention, only it's the 16MP unit from the D4, rather than a 24MP without low-pass filter that could go toe to toe with Leica and win and still be serviced at 5.5 frames a second by the Df's CPU.
Kind of makes you wonder where the F-mount is going. This is called, having a great design idea and then laying an egg.
The consolation prizes; at least it shows they can produce an FX DSLR with a sturdy build at a DX prosumer body weight, and at least it syncs with flash at a true, even-f-stop, 1/250th.
The frustrating part; it would have been so easy for them to get this right. Why did they make such basic mistakes?
Probably enough... ;)
Hobbit13: I think in most comments below, people are raving about the excellent performance of the Leica 45mm lens. But I don't think the quite bulky 45mm Leica is a logical companion for the petite GM1. A test scene shot with the 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens would be much more interesting.
It's sure nice that the sensor in the GM1 performs well, but that is to be expected, because it's the latest iteration of the m4/3s. It's not that the sensor will be worse, because it's placed inside a tiny body. It either fits, or it doesn't. The size of the camera (on the outside) doesn't have much influence on the image quality.
The Leica isn't that sharp.
