Perfect time for someone else to step in and offer a stand alone PS clone. I suppose CS5 is where we part ways.
Cy Cheze: Available in July? How many units? 14 perhaps? BM doesn't have exactly a Toyota Motor history of mass production.
Looks like a "concept" camera, meaning a proto-type that BM might bring to production, if they can attract the necessary capital, or arrange for a contract with a firm with a means to pull it off.
75mbps RAW or decompressed video shot with pocket camera is something of an oxymoron: you'd burn up SDXC cards fast, cause the sensor to sizzle, and have a dead battery in no time, all for the sake of huge files you can't edit without a high-grade NLE and workstation--and whose output, when viewed on YT at 5mbps on a small screen, won't draw any more "wow" than what your kid shot with his iPhone.
Still no <$2k camera that shoots 4k video. Not many UHDTVs to view it, true, but it would be video one could crop and not cause lousy IQ.
Before I would even consider anything plus, Youtube needs to be fixed and center aligned again. The recommendations are so retarded it's just sad. Why old episodes of things I already watched? State variable filter doesn't mean I like to watch state senate hearings.
Sweet! I just wish they'd skipped the modes and put the speeds on that dial instead like on the Fuji. A for auto is all the modes you need in one.
Really like that SX-70 theme going in the brown camera, with the bag.
Maybe I'm crazy, but I would've taken one of their lower cost 49mm sensors, cut it in about half horizontally and put it into an XPan-like body. That people would happily pay more than 5000 euro for.
Also, at least release something that resembles a V-camera, if you're going to call it Lunar.
Fotog C: Wow... a revived M9. A tactic that Apple used???? Keeping an 'old' model in 'new' color and call it a new camera. The M-E is basically a M9 in spec. Same sensor, same resolution, same features. But I like it. Now I can have a weird colour Leica new for a used M9 camera.
The new M is rather interesting but do Leica user really use Liveview and movie model anyway? I don't. I just shoot. So the M-E makes more sense and more true to traditional M users. A photographic tool. Though I would like to see how well the new CMOS sensor performs.
The live view is needed for R-lens compatibility. So while they're implementing that, they might as well throw in movie capture. You don't have to use it, just like I don't use 99% of the custom settings on my EOS 5Ds.
Does it have geared knobs like Canon or is it just a thread like on the Arax etc. models? The Canon you can twist end to end in a second, while the thread variants take a while to move.
Aah, I'm trying to save money here for a trip! GAS!
I don't want Instagram anymore! It's available on Android and probably soon on WP.
There is no "more information" at that link. The info is actually even less informative than what is stated here.
JDThomas: I just heard from a photographer that was there, that after the media backlash, the contract was amended and the rights grab/buyout was removed.
..and I wouldn't be surprised if that pressure came from the artists. Some record companies seem to have a really hard time understanding the concept of symbiosis.
Cax: Which is cheaper, a $900 lens with a $400 camera body, or a $400 lens with a $3000 camera body? And what retains its value better?
A 75/1.8 is equivalent to a 150/3.5 in photographic terms, but it severely outperforms it in one aspect: Rendering the image on 1/4 of the area and 4 times brighter means you can use a smaller and cheaper camera. The lens itself will also be smaller. This has always been the strength of the 4/3 system. It was true for an E-520 with the 50/2 macro, and it is true for µ4/3 today.
You can buy a 150/2 for Canon EF, but you can not buy a 75/1 for µ4/3. That is the strength of the Canon EF system.
Choose the strength that fits your needs better. It is as easy as that.
Still waiting for a 24/1.4 equiv. lens for my GF-1.
wetsleet: Thanks DPR for the first intelligent write-up of this phone's camera. I've read so much drivel elsewhere about how noisy it will be (heedless of the fact that the pixel density is equivalent to a regular phone's 8Mpix sensor), or general buffoonery regarding 41Mpix, etc.But I might take issue with your comment that the digital zoom will not yield the shallower DOF advantages of an optical zoom. Whereas the optical zoom changes focal length to yield shallower DOF surely this will phone yield a similar reduction in DOF since the physical image magnification increases as the effective sensor area reduces with the digital zoom?
If you crop a photo you've taken, any photo, will it reduce the DOF? Same with the 808. It just crops and with the added pixels you maintain final image size.
I've had a setup like this for years now. Composer with a Schneider-Kreuznach 80/2.8 enlarger lens. It's nice to see Lensbaby offering a true tilt-option without the sweet spot (it always looked like Photoshop radial blur anyway).
twenty200: This app is garbage. The fact that you're reviewing it here really makes me question your level of expertise in regard to mobile photography. I mean, really now. Out of the thousands of photography apps, many of which are stellar, you choose to review THIS?
The original Hipstamatic app is surprisingly impressive. This app is garbage. It's nothing more than an attempt at clever marketing in order to make an easy buck, and they got hammered for it from many of their fans when it was released, so much so that they had to quickly rework the pricing scheme due to the backlash.
I love dpreview, but your expertise in mobile photography is lacking to the point where it's embarrassing. It's obvious to anyone who shoots with an iPhone.
4 stars for this app. Yikes.
Hipstamatic is probably the most popular photo app ever. It's only natural to check out something else from the same maker, not to mention it has the H-word in the name.
I doubt that it's free though. You don't have to pay when you're the commodity being sold (sharing and privacy and so on).
I already have the X100, so knowing how fantastic that camera is, I'm really tempted to get this and maybe sell the X100. With my collection of Voigtländer M-mount lenses and all the russian stuff I have, I'd be in business from the get go. Just have to wait for Ebay to come up with the M-mount adapter.
Eleson: When it comes to lens pricing, look at this video:http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/.../sony-tidbits-nex-fs100-presentation-video/
It is a Sony video, but nevermind that, someway along the video, they remark that the same optical lens is sold in different costumes, and when dressed like a video lens the price goes up alot! Having continous aperture, and not calling it aperture :) may not warrant the price difference.Maybe that gives some insight into why manufacturers want to make these lenses. Lucrative! "Special needs " can be just empty sales talk at times ...
These cine lenses have minimal to no breathing. They have housings that make attaching FF to them much easier and reliable.
NineFace: LOL Nikon the biggest fail of the year!
Yeah, but the Pentax isn't ugly. I hope these are prototypes and not the final designs. The one with the bump looks horrible.
Nikon, look at the Olympus mock up for E-P1 and go from there..
PLShutterbug: I don't get it. The camera is so poorly designed from an ergonomics standpoint that you have to spend an additional $118 (or $200) and sacrifice your hot shoe to make it stable and comfortable to use?
Then why buy the camera in the first place?
I get it and I'm here to tell you about it.
