munro harrap: I can watch my lenses going in and out of focus and film it now. I am lost here. In what way is a Lytro different?
That's not the same. I think the possibilities might be easier to understand if you work in the motion picture post production. What Lytro is doing isn't new but it's great to have it in a small package. Anyway, Lytro will never be able to deliver the software you need to actually make proper use of it.
The lenses still look like designed by Panasonic...
Robo2k: Those samples are extremely disappointing. Almost all of them are horribly exposed. Then again, this is my biggest complaint with DPR previews/reviews in general. How do you manage to make every camera look so damn terrible? I mean this set barerly scratches the possibilities of this camera (or any camera for that matter)!
Your reviews might be wordefully meticulous (an honest praise!) but, man, your samples galleries (and especially this one) are the worst.
Sure but it is too much to expect decent shots from the DPR team? I mean even my grandpa shoots better snapshots!
beavertown: 12 fps + 60fps in Jpg, APS-C Sensor, that puts Nikon 1 system to great shame.
Well done Sony.
Reading comprehension is overrated. ;)
Where is the E-M5 update?!? :P
Biowizard: Perfect Timing! Bought my E-M1 from Park Cameras in Burgess Hill just yesterday; today, I charged the battery and started playing, wondering about the 1.0 firmware in the system - and then here comes this! Serendipity, you are my love!
Totally agree. It's amazing how Fujifilm got this reputation even though they aren't the first nor the best example.
Don't be ridiculous, there have been more exceptions like that. Just look at the 7D or A900.
Nice but I rather use just DxO standalone, LR isn't very good anyway.
Devilsh: I cringe watching these photographers work without a viewfinder. It seems such a pain to work with the screen and hold the camera awkwardly out in front of you. Doesn't seem natural at all. No real information on how this thing handles in low light which is an area it might (should) excel? And of course, throw out your workflow tools like photoshop and lightroom when using its raw files. Give DP Review one and let them figure it out for us....
You should go to the gym.
Karroly: To use the new potential of this technology seamlessly, we need to create a new interactive display "device" that automatically puts into focus the area of the picture ours eyes are looking at. Maybe a software using the front camera or webcam of laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc... to detect the eye positions and angles to focus the picture accordingly ?
I don't think that's their intention.
Holger Bargen: 1) I do not need a camera like this.2) I would like to have it!!!
Every camera will be like this in a few decades. Everything a lens adds to the image can be mimicked in software as long as the sensor captures the proper data to enable it and you have the compute power to do so.
Erm, it enables you the option to set the focus after you shot it
spatz: Lytro is fantastic with a viewer that supports eye tracking.
That changes everything. Without it, no more than a gimmick.
That's not the point. The point is to be able to set the focus after you shot it.
RichRMA: Kind of pointless, to an extent. Most people who watch on TVs sit too far back to even SEE what 4K can show, so where is the advantage? It just sucks up more memory and processing power. Increase frame rate on 2k to 120fps, it would be much better.
Not everybody has a tiny 42" screen. Even 65" screens are cheap these days and you can see the difference easily.
ageha: No touch screen...
The new screen is also smaller. :(
Ashuaria Lee: NX3000 seems to be successor of NX2000.However, the H/W seems a little cheap(no GPS, small LCD, no Touch and blahblahblah..)But, has a light weighted small body and probably nice PowerZoom lens and Low price.Let's see the JPEG quality.
The NX3000 seems to be more a successor of the NX1100. The NX2000 is still a better camera.
HendeHoq: Looks very good and with a classic controls. Hope Samsung weird experiments on NX line are gone.
Classic controls? Sure...
Gesture: Beautiful camera. Excellent sensor. Great focus accuracy. World-class ergonomics. AND a great kit focal length.
Any links to the photos you shot with it?
Michael Ma: I would like to see Samsung take on the A7S with and incorporate a Samsung SSD into it. Only fear is at the last minute, they'll change their mind the last second to put a 12 megapixel sensor for a 40 megapixel one and not even register on people's radar.
Before they slap a SSD into it they need to develop a full-frame sensor and at least one full-frame lens.
