JeanPierre Thibaudeau: I really only see the water color effect at ISO 800 in the man's face. If you don't pixel peep and look at the overall picture, the images are impressive with sharpness and color accuracy, even at ISO 6400. Olympus is now spreading it's impressive newly acquired technology in all kinds of cameras. If only they would release it in a standard 4/3 DSLR, it would please a lot of people who owns a lot of 4/3 lenses.
But to pack a 24 X zoom in a such a small pocketable body is quite a feat. And if you add the 5 axis stabilisation in it is really another step ahead for the non stop innovative company that is Olympus. Bravo Olympus!
I see watercolor effect very clear here at iso 125https://s3.amazonaws.com/masters.galleries.dpreview.com/2898315.jpg?X-Amz-Expires=3600&X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Credential=14Y3MT0G2J4Y72K3ZXR2/20140418/us-east-1/s3/aws4_request&X-Amz-Date=20140418T121427Z&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=host&X-Amz-Signature=733d67618fc05f02729f280824acac04c7e8d5c3e576c6ff21ced46db7b5ca47
The water-color-effect even at iso 125 is not pretty…..sadly
How can RX100 (with its much smaller sensor and more megapixels) have better dynamic range and color depth, and a two years old olympus with a smaller sensor (E-PM2) have much better low light ISO??http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Canon-PowerShot-G1-X-Mark-II-versus-Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX100-II-versus-Olympus-PEN-E-PM2___941_896_840
raztec: Well done Canon! Finally, a compact camera with the right size sensor and the perfect lens. This is a real home run!
I hope the home run also means a greater resolution than that RX100 has…..
The first I read is: "By putting a 24 megapixel full-frame sensor into a body nearly the same size as the Olympus E-M1, the Alpha 7 is arguably the most ambitious camera Sony has ever made."
The 36mp Sony 7r doesn´t count?
If it had 4K 120fps I would sell my apartment and buy two :-D
Elaka Farmor: One of the cons "Limited battery life". I have not yet seen any camera with unlimited battery life ;-)
Plastek, my English is even worse. But despite that, I think people very well understand my irony - no idea why you can´t.
One of the cons "Limited battery life". I have not yet seen any camera with unlimited battery life ;-)
I would be interested in the 2,4x teleconverter in video mode, not a word of it :-(
If your mind are just focused to take pictures, there is a problem. But if you are "here and now", in the present moment, there is no problem with the memory. All depends on if the mind is with you in the moment, that´s it. I have experienced it.
The coolest feature in the camera (and very useful in video) is the re-use of the soon three years old 600D 3x-10x digital crop zoom. Why did Canon drop the feature in the first place?
Wow, this is evolution in its most creative aspect!
If this retro, tell me this; where is the aperture ring on the 50mm f1.8 lens?
mpgxsvcd: Looks like the Canon 70D lags behind even the tiny GM1 in high ISO image quality.
LOLable but true.....
Sad Joe: This strikes me very much as an STM version of the current very cheap and very good 55-250 lens - the improved STM lead AF is much welcomed - but the HUGE price jump isn't. I'll be sticking to what I have. OK it lacks a white jacket and a red ring, its not super fast AF and it doesn't look sexy but its a cracker - don't believe me ? Get your hands on one - shoot REAL World - not a test chart and you'll begin to wonder why Canon charge so much more for such little quality difference / improvement.
Now when reviews is out there is a clear improvement in IQ in the tele end. It is close in IQ to Canon 70-200mm IS L !! I will buy one.
marike6: So more or less as well reviewed as the D7100 or EM-1 mainly due to an emphasis on LiveView AF and the new Dual Pixel AF module relevant mainly for video and LiveView with the 2 STM lenses.
No weather sealing, no 100% Pentaprism VF or dual SD cards. And most puzzling is how easily IQ differences vs a class leading camera like the D7100 can be explained away or marginalized with phrases like "in most situations" or "for the majority of users", "the difference in IQ are slight". Really? Most enthusiast users of this class of camera shoot RAW and edit in LR where the latitude of files or RAW headroom are extremely important.
Don't get me wrong, the 70D is a nice camera and Canon is a great system, but when all the cameras get Gold Awards with similar scores in spite of some key differences, it makes these reviews less specific, less useful for researching cameras than they could be.
And of cause it has the cool and useful 3x optical crop mode in movie recording at 1080p (just like 600D)! And 60p 1080! No, I´m joking, of cause it has not.
meland: I stumbled onto this page. Can't remember quite how but I have to say I'm amazed. Amazed that so many have the time to be so angry about a thing that's just a tool for taking pictures. Well I thought that's what it was anyway but some might think otherwise on reading this stuff.Q: Is this more important than corrupt politicians salting away cash in offshore bank accounts? A: NoQ: Is this more important than the ice caps melting and polar bears getting too hot? A: No.Q: Is this more important than One Direction's favourite breakfast cereal? A: No.Some of you really, really need to get out more. If you don't like it, just don't buy it.
I can give youy a hint why people are upset. For example, compare the 70D against E-PL5 in RAW iso 3200. Do you see any obvious visible difference? Canon is newer, more expensive, bigger sensor. I should be a clear difference in IQ, but it´s not. Why?
And still no access to the superb optical 3x crop 1080p video mode?? Aaah, I forgot, Magic Lantern has already done that for us......
Of cause no information about fps in 4K recording.....240fps? 2fps? 24fps? 25fps? 30fps? 60fps? 15fps? 20fps? Or what?
Wim1964: As for more contributers here I'm very underwhelmed by the samples I've seen so far, both in normal conditions as in low light...very ''soft'' colours, lots of grain. The Nikon 7700-samples are nice, bright and crispy in comparison!
Sadly I agree. I hoped for better....
