Marty4650: The new G was worth waiting for!
This looks like a lot of MILC camera for the money. I hope they sell a ton of them.
Very promising to those waiting for the GX8...
Paul Verhoeven: Do they preannounce the firmware 1.5 months ahead to prevent people from jumping to E-M1 or NX1?
Right. Was unfamiliar with Fuji practices. The other examples cited were all cameras, and not FW. For cameras, there may be a case for trying to estimate the market - announce something and then get dealer feedback and even pre-order data so as to tune/plan production etc. FW does not seem to have this motivation.
Nothing wrong with improving, but announcing an FW update this long ahead of time is rare. So asking why and finding a sensible answer is normal.
wetracy: A flash unit is not a gun. Stop calling it that!
It's remarkable what can get called guns. At airport security once they confiscated a laser pointer from me calling it a laser gun.
AngryCorgi: Did I miss the test of the cycle time? I would have thought that would be included in a review. Surely I read past it without noticing it.
I did not remember seeing it either. That makes the two of us.
Mark Alan Thomas: Here’s the link to the Lightroom 6 Standalone version which Adobe has basically hidden from customers:
Click “edit” to switch to upgrade pricing.
Yes - I can confirm that this works.
mpgxsvcd: That lens looks great. However, the picture looks fairly noisy for ISO 400.
Exposure +0.35 and shadows +50 in post. Noise is probably from trying to compress the dynamic range when the shot was taken to preserve highlights as much as possible. The original scene must be extremely contrasty and, for any ISO, noise would be unavoidable in such circumstances unless you stack.
How could banning it to be sold to a foreigner and leave the country provide additional time for study? The seller, whose financial interest is being negatively affected by this ban, is more likely to open it up for studies by an organization that proposed the ban? If they were this cooperative to begin with, surely a ban like this is completely unnecessary, and only unnecessarily puts them in a mock-enemy position? I thought state robbery of private interests were completely opposite to what this government stands for. So much of this does not add up. But of course government decisions are not required to be logical.
xpda: What will this offer that I don't already have with the Panasonic 45mm macro lens? (A serious question. Do I need both lenses?)
The wider aperture allows more DoF control in non-macro situations and the Power OIS should be better for video than the Mega OIS in the macro lens - should is the important word here as we don't know for sure. The lighter weight and smaller size might also be interesting given the M4/3 paradigm.
MarshallG: How do they cut these things in half? Do they disassemble them, cut the parts in half, and reassemble?
It makes sense to assume that the cutting was done separately before assembly. Look at the Canon 11-24/4 in picture 14.
maxnimo: To be fair, there's no way to tell the size of this camera from those images. For all we know, that lens could be 6 inches in diameter and extend 18 inches.
The grip must have something of an upper limit, given the expected sizes of human hands. Still, this could have been designed with giants in mind.
photogeek: Does it tilt back any?
90 degrees is the range, so in your scenario, you will need something else to help it, such as a piece of white card.
Juri Janasik: Poll doesn 't seem to be working properly
The interface is a bit quirky. You need to grab an item then drop it into your chosen space.
Marketing tactic? Maybe. Photography is not art and paying high prices to collect photographs is stupid? Sour grapes.
marc petzold: why is that these images turned out bad, i meant...the ppl are handling it here are so called pro's...aren't they? i don't see a medium format advantage from these shots, but noisy compositions - no offence, guys..well...you can do much better, can you? i meant - you can do this with any APS-C/DX DSLR or DSLM...these examples.
I am surprised you did not mention p&s compacts or even iphone ...
AdamT: Since when did the GM5 have IBIS ? -
What we like:◾1,166K-dot EVF◾Sensor-shift image stabilization◾Compact, lightweight, tough body design
In the final comment it's also claimed to have a pop-up flash, whilst the picture clearly shows the clip-on unit. These round-up articles are probably rushed out for the shopping season?
There is no discussion about the images taken with walking towards the camera high frame rate AF test? Hopefully it will be discussed in the full review.
cd cooker: Sony, will we get A7R II, A7S II also? Your product roadmap is very confusing. Why give us so many different choices when u probably can merge them together into at least just 2 models instead. Also, are we expecting annual update for this kind of "expensive" cameras?
No. It's a good thing. Not only for people focused on features, but also for those who are keen on price. Newer models will generally press the previous models' prices down. Good for everyone.
Yes. We expect annual updates for this kind of expensive camera. Why not? Sony's culture was formed in the consumer electronics industry.
