There is a mistake in this review: "In deeper water, photos suffered from the blue/green cast" ?I believe you missed the fact that one of the Scene modes is specifically called "underwater". You were supposed to engage that mode before taking such pictures. There is no need for photoshop color correction. It's nicely done in-camera.
Regarding PQ, the optimal quality is achieved in 10MP jpeg mode. There is no point in recording 18MP jpegs with this sensor. Additionally, the jpeg compression ratio that Sony chose for 18MP files is quite low (it shows in your jpeg samples).
D1N0: too bad the 4gb file size cap on fat 32 is a bigger problem for my camera. It only takes about 5 minutes to fill that
Also, the fat64 format exists.It's called "exFAT" now.
CameraLabTester: I can't think of any famous Hollywood movie having a 30 minute single raw take...
... or any digital DSLR movie for that matter.
(unless you're filming growing grass...)
There may be, out there... possible.
And this famous hollywood movie, too :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rope_(film)
