DaveE1: Press photos are intended to evoke interest, emotion and debate.
Looks like these winners hit the target in the center, judging by the emotion and excitement expressed in the comments.
The photo contest where no one bothers to comment on the winners is a contest that picked the wrong winners.
Now go and take an photo that will get people talking!
u mean like the anti-gay pictures, u sure that will win?
i got the fz1000 on a trip to japan....never touched the df in that whole trip.gotto love the versatility and 4k photo mode
Jim DT: I see two schools of thought here about the eventual role of mirrorless. Olympus, Panasonic, Fuji, Samsung and parts of Sony seem to believe that once EVF's and improved focusing technologies hit their stride, SLR's, with their extra mechanical pieces and big fat pentaprisms will become obsolete.
Canon and Nikon seem to believe that mirrorless is OK for people upgrading from digicams, but that for "real" photography, you need a DSLR.
I believe that current high-end DSLRs, with many years of development and experience behind them are truly superb picture-taking machines and probably the best choice for the most demanding users. However, the "serious" mirrorless camp is catching up quickly. And, with Moore's law on their side, they will continue to improve. Canon and Nikon could well find themselves champions of a disrupted technology!
shapes and forms dont dictate "real" photography
Zeisschen: nothing makes less sense than using a DSLR for astrophotography.
unless its common sense
whoa! .....yawn. next.
brn: I don't understand how #6 was even up for consideration.
it needs bokeh ....XD
ThatCamFan: "starts at 21mm equivalent - a focal length Casio says is optimal for taking self-portraits."
So Casio is lying on purpose, despite knowing better
21 lens makes the ladies longer and slimmer. its a magic formula that casio uses successfully.
AV Janus: Kardashi-cam?
Seriously, they would have sold a ship-load to the US sheeple-girls if they partnered up...It would have raised Casio from the dead in the exes of modern consumer.
casio is doing really well on its TR series and they dont need US at all. in fact that is the strategy. usd 1250 for a 1/1.7 sensor. its leica for girls.
casio are selling at asia market around usd 900. TR series
CameraLabTester: "As we round the bend, into the home stretch...
Sony pulling away by three lengths, followed Panasonic, Olympus and Samsung neck to neck for second place...
Fuji trying to pass those three with renewed breakaway energy...
At the far stretch, just now, making it at the halfway mark, is Nikon and Canon...
Nikon is struggling...
Oooh! Canon has just collapsed and smashed the M into pieces! What a tragedy! The EOS M has disintegrated into oblivion!"
sony is slowing down but wait....olympus just gave Sony a push and its running like autobot
Svetoslav Popov: Wow, what happened to modern ergonomic design? This is not only one ugly body, i bet it hurts in the hands. Great functionality though.
funny, instead of reading and imagining...i actually owned one and didnt find the controls a bothered.i did switched back to FF recently and my reasons in : www.marcuslowphotos.com but ergonomic wasnt one of them
Dimit: I fancy those evolutionary steps of Sony..something new all the time!Frankly,we were all convinced that no on sensor stab.-not even imagine 5 axis-could exist in a ff mirorless!...Bingo !!
i have shaky hands, always did. there was once i shot in a club, at 1/8 on olympus with 5 axis and got a sharp clear shot.thats crazy given my track record of getting anything less than 1/50 non shaky from handheld. now sony have the most important feature in olympus....
rsf3127: Very nice upgrade from Sony.
But I believe Sony should listen more to their customer base in order to become a major player in the upper bracket of the photographic equipment market.
Why doesn't Sony show some respect for the A7 owners delivering a nice firmware update along with the new model? That would be awesome!
There are a few things that I would like to have. For instance: if I set Clear Zoom, I want it to become fixed if I turn on and off the camera, unless I change it again. That would be very easy in a future firmware.
I would also like to be able to set MF magnification in a single click of a button. Nowadays, it is a double click process (it was better in the NEXes).
Stabilized primes would also be a plus, even if the new bodies will have IS. That would show respect for early adopters of their FF mirrorless bodies.
I could not care less for the apps that where the main focus of the last firmware, although they may be of some importance for some user.
5 axis trumps oss anyday. its a good trade
lx100 thank u
closest thing to cyborg i have seen. well....rip and good riddance.
totally pimped! Give me 2 pls, a platinum and rose gold. I need one to screw on the front of the car, to replace that horse emblem. The other looks great on the "thinking man" statue outside my house.
Matt1645f4: May be Pentax needs to get some crowdfunding (just as Panono did) to get their "Full-Frame camera" into production? Go one Pentax try it and see how much you could raise and at the same time see how many of us Pentaxians want FF.
Just please don't go OTT with the colours, what you've done with the K3 in enough Black, Silver and Titanium is all thats needed ..............
didi baev.....aw.....i tot u went for nikon 1....
in case u ask......because they can
ok canon bought over nikon, from now on, Canikon have done the impossible
magneto shot: LCD'less is one of my wish list. My other was setting a possible shots of only 36,64,128. Limitations such as these gives u all the glory and film shooting experience, makes u a better photographer definitely without the fuss of film development.
its should be built in, maybe not even requiring SDcard. just limit it by the built in memory for the said 36,64,128. @iudex, u can say all u want about self imposing limits, if that works, we would have all been perfect creature built upon layers and layers of perfect habits by choice. Fact is, we aint. Try doing what u wrote there and go for a shooting event, see if u can resist those parameters imposed by urself.
