They are going to announce they sold out of the phone in 1 minute to generate buzz. Almost nobody would be able to buy one.
Before online shopping, calumet's mail order prices were always higher than B&H. In the course of 20 years I may have visited their online stores a few times but never bought anything. Most of my purchases were from B&H.
I could not understand how they stayed in business. Going out of business, that I can understand.
So you have to keep learning new stuff in order to reap the benefit of improved memory?
I'm at the age when I keep forgetting stuff. If I learn photography, I may forget what I learn in a month. If I relearn the stuff I forgot, would I also improve my memory?
If this camcorder has high bandwidth memory cards, it is a shame they don't also offer a slow motion/high frame rate feature.
Now would be a good time for photoshop competitors to woe users away from adobe.
Franka T.L.: The real question one must asked : how come the sport community had still not able to integrate better the technology available to them to better police and judge. Sport events usually happen at a fast pace, a pace that even the most trained might find challenging and missing some key event happening. This is where technology can help and should.
The judges would cry foul if you take away their jobs.
I can shoot a photo with my DSLR, check the histogram, and reshoot another one without having to fiddle with another device.
Gimmicky indeed. If you buy one of these, you lose most of the interchangeability. Now you have to buy the same color lense from pentax.
A photographer values cameras as tools. A camera nut values them as objects.
You won't be able to use flash, and you can't blur out the background, you can't adjust exposure, and you're limited to wide angle. The only advantage is you can quickly post the photos online and apply some predefined photo effects.
I still prefer DSLR. I like to have control, and I wouldn't post any photo without retouching them in photoshop first.
The results speak for themselves. The photos samples look like snapshots and not professional photos.
Sigma should be more actively promoting the advantage of this sensor and have some photos to show what it can do that other sensors cannot.
It would be even better if the card uploads the photos directly to a cloud drive (e.g. dropbox).
This way I don't have to run another background app on my computer to receive the photos, and the computer doesn't need to be on for the photos to transfer out of the card.
yes, it implies your other cameras are anti social
chalnicolas: I wish they would offer their sensor in a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. Ideally join m43 and become the third company to build bodies for that mount … I guess they could sell a lot and also foster the sales of their own current and future m43 lenses!
I also think sigma should license the sensor to other, more capable camera makers. It's been so long since Foveon sensor was announced, and no highly desirable camera has been made from it.
Can't say I feel sorry for them.
I used to be a loyal customer for years. Then I found a very annoying bug. Sometimes password protected albums cannot be accessed by guests. I reported the bug to them and after a long time they still didn't fix the bug, I moved to smugmug and has been happy.
A good compromise between bulk and sensor size. I hope the street price come down to under $500. But whether I buy it or not, I thank sony for creating this new class of camera. Hopefully other manufacturers would follow and give us more choices.
If I was a professional photographer, I would make photos that cannot be mistaken for badly exposed snap shots.
I haven't seen this book and probably won't because there are cheaper ways to see sample poses. Just search for images on the web or use any of the stock photo web sites. E.g. search "woman portrait full body"
If nikon pick the smaller sensor because it results in a noticeably smaller camera/lense and lower cost, I'd say they made a good choice. But due to the overhead mechanics and electronics, this system with 2.7x crop factor is not significantly smaller than the 4/3 systems. So I'm more inclined to buy the 4/3 system with the larger sensor.
I hope when Canon enters the mirrorless large sensor camera market, they are not as timid as Nikon.
