"it appears they are fabricated flat, bent into shape using a custom machine, and then backed with ceramic to maintain the bent shape permanently."-------------------------------------OK guys, do not try this at home
Meuh: @Jokica people have been wanting pentax to do this for years now ;)
Hassled do something similar with there MF camera's,
Oh, I see. Thank you for your clarification.
Funny, I have contacted Pentax / Ricoh with this idea two weeks ago.
Jokica: If Samsung is my company, I would buy Pentax along with Ricoh.
Exactly. Pentax/Ricoh don`t have what Samsung have (consumer electronics giant, cell phone giant, LCD, resources, etc). Samsung don`t have what Pentax/Ricoh have: Good photo brand, legacy, army of loyal users, etc. Ricoh copy machines and other products will came as bonus to Samsung.
If Samsung is my company, I would buy Pentax along with Ricoh.
Great camera. I hope Sony will finaly improve Flash X sync speed in next model.
Jim Salvas: If you want weird bokeh, you can just put a coarse diffraction grate in front of a longish lens and shoot with a wide aperture. I did this pic by poking holes in a piece of black foil with a pencil. I then mounted this in a spare filter ring and put it on the front of a 100mm f2.8 lens and shot wide open.
The in-focus parts of the image stay relatively sharp and the out of focus stuff breaks up into as many images as you have holes in the grate. In between, you get beaucoup bokeh.
That would be great, thanks! I will revisit this thread tomorrow. Looking forward to your post!
Hi, Jim.I just saw your sample, it looks great.Thanks for the wonderful idea. I would very much like to see picture of your setup, even better, the video about it. If there is a link, please share it.Thanks!
Thoughts: Any soap company is going to sue Nikon?
Err, probably. And oil company will sue Nikon for collection their oil on D600 sensor. So, Nikon is going ahead.
At least, Nikon can be safe with V2. The camera is so ugly, no one will want to copy it :-)
Bobby Handal: Yep, I am guilty. But if you already own your home, put your children through college, have a very decent income - why not? whats the point of being the richest man in the cemetery?.
Are you saving money so that when you pass away, your wife's new husband enjoys it ?
I am going to enjoy my life. I am going to buy whatever I can afford , not more.
I love waiting for that recently announced camera, I love reading rumors, sheesh I even sit down and design on paper what would be the perfect camera for me.
The main problem for me? is what equipment to take oin a photo shoot !!! I love it. yep, I am guilty.
Could not sad it better. +10
Just one more lens, and I will stop... Promise! :-)
I kinda like 650 numbers more...
I was about to give my comment, but I realized I have nothing to comment about. Sad.
Olympus PEN E-PL5 + Lumix 20mm f/1.7 = 900$
Anfernee Cheang: DPReview, will you fix the spec table which was copying NEX-3N? Some numbers just didn't look right... 2.7" 460K back LCD seems like a joke. And it doesn't look like it is fully articulated. Could you please also grab some information about the EVF resolution? Thank you.
@R Butler:In specification sheet it is stated: Viewfinder resolution 1,440,000, while it is 800x600
You have commented LCD: "Our story says SVGA (800 x 600 pixels) - 1.44m dots, to put it another way."
However, 800x600 is 480,000Or, I am missing something?
RobertSigmund: I just made a further discovery: I compared the specs, and it seems that the A 58 is even lighter than the A 55. Now, I find this wonderful. I enjoy the low weight of the A 55, and I was afraid that Sony's tendency goes towards more and more weight. Let's hope the specs are true in this point.
I have NEX-5n and is not a toy. It is great camera, with magnesium alloy body (front and top plate).
