I'm curious how many still need a dedicated delete button on-camera. I always do my deleting in post.
yonsarh: Proud to be Made In Korea products.
"As long as no-one gets hurt for that reason alone, and provided we accept that others may be equally proud of their country," --and there the problems start.
Whitesands: I won't. Buy anything samsung again....My experience has been very poor reliability with their products.
Marcelobtp: Its getting funny to read comments, more than the announcement.
You must be new --it's been like this for years :)
photofan1986: Meh, I have a Panasonic 20 f1.7, it's even faster, and so much smaller and lighter, that they managed to make it a pancake. Come on, Nikon, give us the pancake version :D Ps: That's humor ;-)
Once again sarcasm fails on an international site --what a surprise :)
RichRMA: I'm glad they criticized the use of plastics. We see camera lenses working, dating back to the 1800's still, yet none of these plastic bodied lenses will likely survive anywhere near that long, even if the electronics do.
The extra-fine haptics and the precision of the focusing mechanism can only be achieved with a metal design. The robust all-metal barrel is also well equipped to deal with the rough daily work of a professional photographer, ensuring a long product life. In contrast to lenses containing a lot of plastic, which can become unbalanced over time, the metal ZEISS Otus lenses remain stable for many years. This ensures that the image quality remains consistently high.
Given the quality of modern plastics, I think you'll see problems with the optics (mold, delamination of doublets, etc) first --just like metal bodied lenses.
Valiant Thor: As I observe people and society I am 100% convinced that the smartphone is the worst invention in the history of the world, bare NONE. It has turned a once observant and interactive society into pathetic, electronic addicted, anti-social zombies who walk around with their glazed empty eyes affixed to those crappy little LCD boxes glued to their hand, their thumb frantically pushing stupid little chicklets around the screen with the look of a meth addict on their face and mortal fear in their mind that they would accidently miss one non-essential, meaningless message from an emotionless fellow zombie that is doing the same thing. What used to be meaningful family social outings have turned into four people sitting at a table lifelessly and listlessly staring hypnotically at the endless supply of meaningless pixel propaganda which never leaves their hand. Other than that, nice phone!
Nice post, Joel.
Chez Wimpy: I am sure they are doing it out of the kindness of their heart.
LKJ --DPR is an international site, many here speak English as a second or third language, making sarcasm a poor mode of communication.
You can see the noses in the air from here...
Kim Letkeman: "The resulting video, seen in the demo below, is quite impressive. As of now, the team does not have a release date, but mentions that those who are interested should stay tuned as they 'are working hard on making [their] hyperlapse algorithm available as a Windows app' - Note that the word app most likely hints at a Windows 8 application and not legacy desktop software (sorry Windows 7 users)."
I'm looking forward to playing with this app ... and I think it might be time that users and reviewers put on their big boy pants and stop wasting so much energy whinging about Windows 8. Using dirt cheap tools from Stardock, I have been running Windows 8 exactly as I ran Windows 7 for years now.
" I think it might be time that users and reviewers put on their big boy pants and stop wasting so much energy whinging about Windows 8. "Well put...
peevee1: From $220? What's up with hundreds of $$$ for a freaking bag? How are they 5.5 times better than $40 bags from Target?
I understand --I have a $100 Lowepro that has probably 90% of the features and quality. That last 10% is always dear ;)
marc petzold: @HowaboutRAW
The Nikon D810 is sth better, of course...but costs also more than twice then the A7R - for neglible more performance, also it's much more heavy, and i must say the best thing with E-Mount ever is that you can virtually adapt every lens from the past 60-70 years, that doesn't work with most DSLR because of the mirror box, and bajonet flange. *If* i would have the money, i'd go for E-Mount, not Nikon anymore...it's just too heavy, too expensive (good lenses) and take too much space into the bag anyway - but i do enjoy shooting with my APS-C Nikon's, but i won't upgrade them to FF, because of size and price issues, i'd go for Sony. For example, it's way cheaper (and more fun) using the A7 with legacy mf primes for myself rather than buying the D610 with the 35/1.4 Sigma...much more expensive, no aperture control onto the lens, plastic lens body, etc...and more weight into my bag anyway.
I'm certainly happy we straightened that out..."The D810 outperforms the A7r in every tangible feature."Depends on what you consider tangible --and some of those you list are really too close to call.I'm not a pro...don't shoot sports, seldom use AF, and after carrying SLR's around for years, have no interest in that form-factor, or the OVF.I'm looking ahead to improvements in milcs. My Nex has interface issues, but nothing that's a deal-breaker, and they just get better.
AllOtherNamesTaken: All that and not a word about autofocus, perhaps the D810's most significant improvement? Did I miss something?
"Nearly everyone is reporting they no longer need AF fine tune on any combo, "Given mechanical tolerances, this is a ridiculous claim.
Those two things aren't of particular importance to me...
EcoPix: Well I've just wasted half an hour of precious time looking into this camera, judging by the preview, the sample images and the comments.
I use a NEX-7 and Nikon, Contax and Sony glass. It does a good job, but I can't live with the terrible user interface or the horrid jpeg noise reduction. And now it's starting to play up.
What would you experts suggest for a replacement? Going by the info gleaned here, this camera ain't it!
"Even the best lenses for this system, I've not used the Sigmas, don't really get to Sam, Fuji, Oly level performance."Wrong.
EssexAsh: "Sony might bring curved-sensor technology to smartphone"
Just the one? or is your grammar appauling.
No worse than your spelling...
km25: What about the sickle? I saw an interview of the Russian who rased the flag. The thing I remember the most was, why did the American and English troop have nice clean uniforms, cartons of cigarets. And the Americans had rolls of money. Did we not also win the war? The peole of Russia leared how they were being taken.
""War does not determine who is right. Only who is left." (Often attributed to Bertrand Russell, but no sources exist.)"
Nice production and music. Some are very old, but still good.
Samuel Dilworth: Paving the path to subscription-only Lightroom, as feared …
I long for the old days of selling something the customer wants at a fair price. Why is this model so untenable?
String --you started the exaggeration (and condescension) with your non-answer to the OP.
stevens37y: What about using a tripod?
Probably the most overwritten piece of snark I've read this week, gray....
