DStudio: Up to 8 cameras, but not 9? I'm having trouble visualizing what layout that would be.
yes I did mean 107x160...It seems that my brain has gone to mush today and I've lost the ability to multiply :D
2X4 camera layout. For the 60mp, 53.7x40.2mm sensor cameras that would be like having a ~107x120mm combined 480mp camera (sort of ;) ).That's assuming that they mean 8 camera's total and not 8 camera's in addition to the primary (triggering) camera. It's hard to tell from the wording of the article.
CanonKen: Can I stack them? Trying for a 17 day waterfall exposure.
I've stacked ND filters before - any colour cast in the filters is magnified so you have to be careful.
"Trying for a 17 day waterfall exposure."Are you serious? :P
bronxbombers4: the 1000000 one sounds interesting
too many zeros :DIt's not one million (approx 20 stops), it's one hundred thousand (16.5 stops).It's A little more than stacking an ND1000 and ND64 together
HowaboutRAW: Which Fuji body?
Would be interesting to see the differences between XTrans and Bayer.
@ white shodowI disagree. If you look at DPrev's studio comparison between any of the xtrans cams and the xa1 (bayer CFA), to me at least, xtrans wins in both fine detail and reduced moire (look at the feathers in particular and the swirly colour dots). Even with "in the field" shots I find more detail with xtrans. The only time xtrans falls down a bit is in green detail such as foliage but a good RAW converter solves that issue. Lightroom/ACR has improved a lot with xtrans conversion but converters such as Photo Ninja, Capture One and Iridient still have an edge on performance.
oscarvdvelde: It is only 1.5 times the resolution of the 5DS. Explain the drama?
@Rishi: "Math. It's important, kids." I logged on just to +1 that comment :D
Boss of Sony: Why is this camera getting so much attention when it's basically only got an updated viewfinder? Why don't you just add an extra page to the X100s review?
Boss of Sony: "...I do not own a camera..."
That's a very telling comment ;)
I haven't used a Ricoh since the film days but the GR looks like a great camera- large sensor, low price (relatively speaking), good IQ. It should be a good purchase. I know very little about the Panasonic. Generally speaking, any camera you purchase these days is going to give you great results. You'll only see a difference if you're a pixel-peeper, make large prints or crop excessively.
newe: I thought the S6 was coming...what happened?
I'm not sure where you've heard this...or if you are being serious ;) but the S-camera's used Nikon lenses, the x-cams have their own = more money for fuji.
also if your name is "boss of sony" and you're making negative comments about another manufacturers cameras, then it's hard to view your opinions as entirely objective :D
If you're not interested in the camera that's fine, you're entitled to your opinion.
...or use the same film :p
kadardr: A new market segment would be if Fujifilm put a 24Mp Sony sensor in it. Also the sensor could be tested by DxOMark, and could be used with ACR processing after raw shooting. I wonder how many would sell of which...
That's a fair point but you can always borrow or rent one and evaluate image quality for yourself if that's an option for you. Alternatively, download a few of the many RAW sample images and process them yourself and see if you like the output. I personally don't put a lot of weight behind DXO scores. I doubt a few points here or there make that much of a difference in the real world. That's only my opinion and realise others might think differently.
I'm pretty sure that fuji have sony sensors already...just a different colour filter ("x-trans") array.
Just another Canon shooter: There is low contrast and the strong flare in the video - is that for artistic purposes, or is it a "feature" of the SB?
I'm pretty sure the flare is an intentional aesthetic choice. Not sure about the contrast.
RedFox88: So much for that supposed build quality of Fuji EVIL cameras. So what do you get for their extreme cost? Clearly Dslrs are where to go for durable cameras.
Fuji x-t1 is WEATHERproof not WATERproof and never claimed to be anything else....the 10-24mm lens is neither.Not sure where you get the "EVIL" from? Have you had a bad experience with Fuji?Finally, this is a story taking care while shooting because it could have had a tragic ending.
Sports Shooter: where can you find his story??? I see no link above
Clicking on the images doesn't seem to work (on my browser anyway) but the photographer documented his accident in the Fuji slr/x-system forumhttp://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54139785this is probably where DPreview editors found the story.
RichRMA: Anyone looking at this would be advised (if high definition is their goal) to look into an alternative, custom apochromatic telescopes from Companies like AstroPhysics (U.S.) APM in Germany or TEC in Colorado. They'll provide better images (or at least as good) as the Canon for about 1/8 to 1/4 of the price. But it's likely a well-heeled collector will grab up the Canon.
but you would need an adapter and you won't have autofocus.I don't know who Canon originally made these for but the fact that only 20 (rumored) were made indicates that it's a niche market :) .. you've mentioned collectors but I don't see that there would be many of those either
Snikt228: 1200MM is old news.
I can't tell if you being sarcastic or misinformed, Snikt228? The story you linked to was about a 5200mm Canon prime of which only 3 were made, not the 1200mm in the DPrev story above.
Alec: Since when spy satellites don't count as digital cameras in space?
Early signals from satellites and space probes (eg voyager1 and 2) my have been TV signals not digital
Attractive design but for about $3 on eBay I bought a pack of 10 lens cap savers which are nothing more than self-adhesive buttons attached to an elastic band. It would cost me $70 to save the same number of lens caps with the HxT.Then again it might appeal to some who value style over just practicality. Nothing wrong with that if you have the money.
Ian J G: Just in terms of materials I wonder how much it would cost to print something like that? I mean when you already have the design.
This seems to be a "proof of principle" experiment....Question: Can we make a film camera with a 3D printer.Answer: Yes.
No other factors like cost effectiveness have been taken into account.
