On article Medium-format mirrorless: Hasselblad unveils X1D (1189 comments in total)
In reply to:

LFPCPH: In the past few years we have seen the introduction of 10 (ten) very similar lens bayonets.

Leica T aka (SL)
Nikon 1
Fujifilm X
Canon EF-M
Sony E (NEX)
Four Thirds
Micro Four Thirds
Samsung NX
Leica S
Hasselblad X1D

They all basically do the same. As a consumer I find it frustrating that so many products are incompatible. There are now more such lens mounts then there where lens mounts for 35mm SLR's (I think). There were never that many VCR cassettes types and CD's and tape cassettes were standards for several decades.

It is sad that the camera branch cannot deliver a common standard.

What the fanboys would do then?

Now it's Leica's turn to make some FE-mount lenses, eh?

In reply to:

Cane: So for us non-Sony experts, are these APS-C lenses or FF lenses? Are they for use with the crop factor of a crop sensor, or are they really wide for FF? And what is the adapter for they mention if they are E-mount? Am I the only one that read that and went, "huh"?

:)

photo_rb: I notice lightroom CC has this in addition to a Clarity and Saturation slider.

Also sharpness, noise, moire´and defringe.

It's the same engine.

DavidsfotosDotCom: Just go diving with it & you can get 2-4 atmospheres of compression ;-)

@tim: I think it depends of the depth one dives.

Yeah. The images in this article took my breath away.

What if their left side appeared BEFORE users "complain", and BEFORE Sony's latest developments regarding their raw files?!

I think all the reviewers will tell us how 12Mp iPhone 6s images/video will be far ahead 23Mp Sony's 4K. Let me tell you I won't believe those.

Let's forget about legacy lenses. I know they were exceptional, but... who cares?!

In reply to:

iudex: To all you guys that don´t know much about Pentax and wonder about what lenses will the FF use: Pentax already has 9 fullframe lenses in it´s recent lineup; 3 FF lenses are in the roadmap for 2015 or later (I guess they will be introduced at the same time with the FF), not mentioning dozens of discontinued FF lenses and current DA lenses, that are oficially APSC only, but are proved to cover FF.
So compared to any other new camera system (Fuji X-mount, Sony FE etc) the FF Pentax will have the most lenses available already upon introduction.

If an APS-C lens happens to cover FF, that does not imply it's calculated for FF. So I wouldn't count those.

Zeiss waited and waited, then they discontinued ZK.
Isn't FF a little bit late for Pentax? I know that pentaxians waited for a FF before Sony's A7 or even RX.

In reply to:

luigibozi: Congrats for Sony.
Next step, if they want to be in the so-called professional range, would be to have the TTL wi-fi trigger from Profoto designed for Sony cameras. This will be the true cherry on pie.

There's the other option too: Sony to reverse engineer profoto's wi-fi signals :)

Leandros S: The RX100 is the model I might buy if it had this option.

I had a rx100 and the pincusion is like extreme. So you'll have a dilemma: you either trust sony's pre-cooking to their raw format or you trust your raw files processor. I think better accept sony's pre in the rx100's case. But for interchangeable lens family is the right thing to have real raw files.
They should bring this to a6000 too.

PVCdroid: There is manipulation of data off the sensor by all the camera makers before a file is written as raw. The question is that of efficiency in the camera's processing of images not what file is the purest in terms of untouched data. You can have a Nikon raw file written as 70+mb or a smaller more processed one in the 30+mb range. The difference is literally garbage that is thrown out which is only used by those engineers and statisticians looking at data, not images. Sony elected to save us all the headache of extra and wasted storage space. Nikon and Canon users will claim that their raw formats are the best and untouched by the manufacturers but it's just not true.

Here is an article from one of the best analyzing what Nikon does to their so called non lossy raw files. Note when reading how similar this process is to the article written about Sony's process by DPR.

@Rishi: "you drew those particular 12 bit quotes from the section where he analyzes high ISO". Thanks for your opinion about my misunderstanding. Rest assured I'll continue to understand that a bit is a bit and raw is raw.
By the way, could you share what do you feel about the truth value of the statement "A raw image file is a raw image file"? Please use only 0(zero) and 1, as I will not understand what half of a bit is.
@Iliah Borg: Agree, but that's information theory. I'm sure you were aware that we're talking applied information theory.

Sorry, but a statement like this...
"The D800E is a 12 bit camera. I’d call the D810 12 and a half."
doesn't look like understanding even what a bit is.
I doubt "12 bit and a half" is a metaphor.
