dr.noise: Looks cool, but should be named "focus bracketing" which is already an applicable technique with almost any camera.
Respectively, 4k photo mode could be called "burst mode" or "video". However, the philosophy is different: The frames are handled in one file, and the shutter speed is typically adjusted for still-shooting, and you have in-camera processing.
It's perhaps 1 minute process to take the image, select the focus point (or frame in 4k photo mode), and use WiFi to send it to the editor or share it on web.
Androole: It's a real shame that they didn't incorporate a focus-stacking algorithm into the functionality.
It would have changed this from a occasionally useful feature for certain cases to one that would be indispensible and excellent for macro photographers.
Same initial thought. I guess you have to do that in post-processing.
Georgeee: GH4 has excellent battery life. GH4 has the best grip of any camera
@Mike FL, c'mon, what in earth are you claiming? I have ONLY commented that people are not talking about the context. The context is not sensor performance or IBIS, because DSLR's have no IBIS (except maybe Pentax?) and DLSR and mirrorless basically share the same sensors(APS-C/FF). In this thread my only point has been that don't change the subject!
Please read the news item you are replying to, and think how your posts are relevant to that.
@snapa, I forgive you. But next time, read what people actually write, OK (in this case it would have been Ming Thein and me)?
@snapa Could you please clarify what my opinion was?
MikeDPR: Auto ISO:Samsung's NX1 (and others probably) already has focal-length-dependent auto ISO (which you can override easily). It's the best I've seen, behaves just the way people want (*cough*sony a7 users*cough*).
AF point selection:A touchscreen with a good EVF/LCD auto switching implementation like in NX1 solves the problem for the most part.
Battery life:Don't let Sony A7 series be the representative of all mirrorless cams. GH4 and NX1 can shoot 500+ shots vs A7's ~300.
Samsung NX system is totally overlooked, unfortunately. My only problem with Samsung is that they did not buy Amiga 20 years ago. The OS would have been wonderful for mobile systems back 10-15 years ago. They seem to do fine today, though.
Age, sensor size, efficiency, resolution, DR, high ISO are not related to the point of this article in any way.
IBIS and OVF are not related to the point of this article in any way.
Panasonic µ4/3 almost totally forgotten. It's a shame, because well thought user interface and physical controls is exactly what Panasonic excels in (+ video). µ4/3 is not all about Olympus, despite the hype.
In general, I share the annoyance of mirrorless cameras with Ming Thein. Most of the mirrorless cameras are not well thought.
And yes, You can call me a Panasonic fanboy, or simply just a fan.
pannumon: The lens cap alone is larger than the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7.
(yes I know they are totally different lenses for totally different systems.)
20mm focal length grape? 20mm focal length petri dish? I agree on grape, but not petri dish.
(and I DO know that the geometry of grape is totally different from the others.)
The lens cap alone is larger than the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7.
Point and shoot cameras that look like serious cameras, and interchangeable lens cameras that look like point and shoot cameras. Target group: loyal Canon customers?
zsedcft: Did that guy just admit that they shipped software that they knew didn't work? That is pretty bad.
My reply was to the original comment. Adobe, Microsoft and others make their products intentionally insecure (they "secretly" collect information about you). I was referring to bugs, which can alter your information/computer to basically everyone.
Practically all the commercial software have known bugs. All that matters if the bugs are crucial for the functioning of the program or a security risk.
KAMBIC: I hope you guys have all been practicing your MF skills. F1.2 MF only? Hahaha
What is ML (what does it mean)?
We are talking about mirrorless lenses and KAMBIC is talking about AF calibration... OMG.
These are cheaper alternatives to the excellent f/0.95 MF lenses by other manufacturers. Bravo!
No problem focusing with Canon FD 50mm f/1.4 with adapted to Metabones SpeedBooster, making it effectively 35mm f/1.0 (35mm-equivalence: 70mm f/2.). My cameras only have the focus magnifications. Of course, I usually stop down about 2 stops after focusing, unless in very very low light.
Kwick1: What are the lens specs?
3.4mm f/2.8. No idea about the sensor size and 35mm equivalence.
The price looks right! I hope after 2 years it will be 200€/$. The tiny 20mm f/1.7 pancake is special in it's own ways, but physically larger lens with similar optical performance and faster AF is very welcome!
