SynLyn: Please Compare this with the upcoming SIGMA 50 1.4 too ! That would be really useful.
well Andy, it happened now :)
Really interesting little camera
Photog74: This reminds me of a story from about 10 years ago when Magnum photographer Alex Majoli would use three Olympus C-5050 compact cameras to document the Iraq war. There have always been, and will likely always be, photographers who use smaller devices instead of the generally bulky SLRs preferred by the majority of their colleagues. This is nothing new, actually.
I have that compact, nice tool...
AllanZ: Wow just amplified the photo, its straight out photoshoped!!! :( i really thought it was a HDR at least but no , i see to many layers working on this photo, :(
You might be a good lawyer, maybe not a good photograper...
Raptor: how a picture shot at daylight and called sunset could win? Levels on PS were even glued badly, it's evident, innatural. It's a BEGINNER shot, and "beginners" are the voters. Thumbs down for you and the author of this ... aborted "collage"?
John of Brisbane: This is a photoshop composite. It is easy to see the sky has been superimposed. Even the light on the water shows full daylight from the completely opposite direction. Checking on Sunset times at Big Sur on Dec 31st 2012 reveals that sunset occurred at 17:02. Check the EXIF data on this phot which reveals that the photo was taken at 15:10 a full 2 hours BEFORE sunset. This photo should have been DQ'd . 14 x 5 votes are also very suspect.
photography is in the hands of fools. :(
Rajeshb: 14, 5.0 votes. must be a great shot :)
no, must be photoshp
jj74e: I don't understand pros using an iPhone. You want mobility so you drop all the way from a DSLR setup to an iPhone? What about losing the tripod/reflectors/accessories? Using a smaller DSLR or mirrorless cam?
The beauty of mobile photography is not in that it gives professionals a unique approach; the beauty comes from accessibility, that suddenly so many more people can take photos on the spot without having to make space in their jeans or budget for another camera.
You're telling me you need an iPhone to move around quickly? Sure it's fun, and the photos aren't bad- but that's what I say to describe my friends or my own photos, for Facebook that is. Not for professional work.
Not to be anal about professionalism (I'm not one myself; i'm speaking as a person who wants their wedding photographed), but there's a line between spontaneity and losing why I'm paying you.- because in essence these are shots more any of my friends would take for free.
Fuji x100 is the answer for this kind of pictures
marcio_napoli: Many here are entirely missing the point, which is fairly obvious, IMO.
It is as simple as that: forget the mobility talk, just erase this part. It all comes down to gathering as much attention as you can (that could easily be called marketing).
That guy succeded on that task in spades: his shoot is here, published on DP review, and seen all across the world.
That's the power of an idea, and the power of creative marketing.
You know this guy's name now. Before that shoot, maybe you didn't.
Just a (really, really) clever marketing stunt. Nothing at all to do with quality or mobility.
questo è verissimo, (anche se io il suo nome già l'ho scordato XD)Spero non demolisca i ricordi di altre coppie con l'iphone! Vai! TUtti color salmone e stampette alla instagram."Aspetta che scatto, un attimo non ha focheggiato, ok, no aspetta il ritardo allo scatto"come pubblicità ok, nella pratica però si fa credere che un iphone (perché gli altri smartphone le foto non le fanno?) sia tanto figo da poter fare i matrimoni.Con una Pentax Q + 9mm hai un effetto simile ma con una macchina fotografica vera. Se poi vuoi qualità c'è sempre la fuji x100...
Sean65: I think it's pretty cool. It's quite anti gear-head which is likely to anger many on this forum. With an iPhone you just concentrate on the picture and not the gear.
stop saying stupid things, please!If you want to concentrate on the picture there are many compact camera with fixed lens. Pentax Q, with 9mm, Fuji X100, Ricoh GRD IV, Sigma's compacts....
un fotomontaggio eseguito a photoshop, e fatto anche male. Thumbs down
aardvark7: I am sure that someone will be able to explain why we can't have our cake and eat it...
My immediate reaction is why wouldn't the lens manufacturers offer this, along with their existing line up? I presume there is a good reason.
@eroll:mmm... it should work
WHY NOT PENTAX? '70 and '80 lenses made by pentax are amazing
Rod McD: If these developments are borne out in the production model and the field, it looks like Fuji are really nailing the best design elements for mirrorless cameras. What else is there to ask for (apart from better weather sealing!)? I'm with the poster who said that he's waiting for the same features to appear in a future XE2 model - I just find it difficult to live with one fixed lens. Give me an XE2 and a small range of high grade lenses and I'll be very happy.
c'mon! Nex series have good lenses? Nex is good only to adapt old lenses
EssexAsh: does the lens still cut off the bottom right of the viewfinder when zoomed?
marike6 : without the crappy optical finder, it would be smaller!! a good evf would be so much better!
BingoCharlie: A missed opportunity. I am a Pentax fan, but how does this camera differentiate itself from competitors?
I think it equips the Oly's XZ lens
gulffish: IQ is sub par, not close to being as good as RX100.
viewfinder doesn't justify this nikon's EPIC IQ FAIL. RX100 is still superior. Buying a Nikon 1 with the 10-30 will cost about the same of having a smaller, better IQ and BRIGHTER Rx100. This new nikon 1 V2 give you inferior IQ with the price of a DSLR and the bulk of a good mirrorlessMaybe only J1 is worth it (just because the price fell down a lot...)
too bad nikon...
Digitall: There are various systems for various needs. Interesting to see that currently the best rated Micro 4/3 cameras are having almost equivalent propotions to a common DSLR. However in my opinion and would rather have a system APC-C than an M4/3, mainly due to the sensor. The X system from Fuji or equivalent would be a good option.Most people who have Micro 4/3 never handled a DSLR seriously.However I prefer the FF. Optimal would be the RX1 with interchangeable lenses.After Sony make the RX1 or similar with interchangeable lenses, the Micro 4/3 is dead, amd maybe aps-c too :)
I don't think so. Micro 4/3 is for people who don't want to carry Kilos of body and lenses everywhere. Ok an RX1 with interchangeable lenses would be nice, but 4/3 and aps-c won't die. Weight and PRICES aren't that good on the fullframe side...
