Ocolon: I've got a pixel peeping question about the petrol station photo:
Can somebody explain why the black letters on the white sign at the far left ("Truck parking prohibited …") and on the right ("No parking on fuel islands") look weird, as if not continuous? Is this due to some kind of artifacts introduced by demosaicing/the JPEG format or are the black letters on the signs somehow unusual (e.g. dotted instead of continuous ink) in reality?
does anyone have an idea if this might be made wearable somehow.
i need a gimbal but for headmounting or similar. I found some solutions for the Gopro, but I think I like the complete solution like this more.
Thanks for any suggestions.
obviously i don't know a single song of "the most successful commercial pop stars of all time", but on the other hand i am rather into miles davies and herbie hancock, so hardly representative.
was this image shot through a window? there are several soft spots in this image spread across the whole frame that i cannot quite explain:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-alpha-7-ii/samples/experience/a7IISamp008.jpg
brycesteiner: This is seriously considered a sport?
formula 1 is also regarded as sport, which I never quite understood.
mmartel: I see more luma noise in the shadows than I would have expected at ISO 400 on a u4/3 sensor, recognizing that's easily tunable to taste. Doesn't really bother me, personally, just an observation that, as a Nikon CX and DX user, noise profile seems closer to what I see in my CX than DX.
this image was brightned up 2/3 stops with the shadows pushed even more, which would result in an exposure of around iso1200 in the darker areas.
kadardr: Makes more sense than the GM1.
GM1 is smaller
Astrotripper: On the right image, it looks like little amoebas, you can even see a trail as it moved :)
maybe it is a glass fungus?
i am sure this "cheap" toy cam will have a larger raw-buffer than my GM1!
Altruisto: This is exactly why I use ZS40 only in RAW mode. Panasonic JPEGS suck. The combo lens+sensor in ZS40 are quite decent for the category, and RAW helps get the most out of it.
decent? it looks as if it was taken with a toy-lens!
wootpile: Apart from faster lens / dof difference... the GM1 with kit lens runs circles around it in studio IQ scene. Smaller sensor, more pixels, much smaller package, same price... go figure.
the studio scene was not shot with the 12-32 kit-lens, but with the 45/1.8
although the 12-32 is not that bad, it is much slower than the canon lens and suffers from softness at 12mm
deep7: Is it my imagination or is the lens sharper on the left than the right?
doesn't seem to be consistent, the next shot is taken with moreorless the same focal length, but looks ok.
there seems to be a frustrating bug with saving-procedure on the GM1:
after power-on the first frame always takes too long to write, so when shooting 5 frames, the camera is blocked for another 15 seconds until you can take another shot. not only the buffer is too small taking only 5 shots (raw+jpeg) the saving seems to be screwed up as well. after the first frame was written, all other frames are saved much faster.
have a look where i tried to demonstrate the problem:http://youtu.be/wwLDBUFVJuc
unmanned drones with cameras on board are already forbidden in austria without certification of austro control and given permission for each flight!
I don't get it. How does Canon manage a 12-60/2.0-3.9 with this size, when a Lumix 12-35/2.8 is 4 times as large?What's the "micro" all about with MicroFourThirds, when they don't manage such lenses like Canon did. Even if the lens was 2 times longer because it cannot retract inside the body, it would still be much smaller than the 12-35! I thought I was happy with my GM1 and 12-32, as most of the time I thought I would leave the kit-lens on, but this G1X just kills my GM1!
MJ Jones: At this focal and 200 ISO setting, it's disappointing to see so much pixel smudge on the full-size image.
that's an art filter for sure!
