"Default color still a little warm and over-saturated for my taste, tonal range a little more contrasty than I prefer"
Canon is cooking. I've always said it.
Kim Letkeman: "However, the a7S's sensor is one of the best low light performers on the market, so you can see it actually out-performs the GH4 by around one stop more than you would generally expect, meaning that the GH4's performance is comparable to the a7S using a sensitivity setting three stops higher."
I checked the 1600/12800 and 3200/25600 comparisons in raw and the A7s was obviously noisier than the GH4. If they are basing this on jpegs then I submit that the statement is only applicable to the JPEG engine as they shot it. If on raw, then I would like to see the examples on which the statement is based, since the two I checked do not support the 3 stops statement.
m43 is the best! when it is not m43 don't bother. In fact their should be a law forbidding all other formats, why it should even be forbidden to talk about other formats. There are none. Lock up people who talk about other formats. They are dangerously insane.
Jogger: If something is worth taking a photo of, then use a real camera. This seems more like a client engagement - PR tool than real photography.
You can. I just put them in dropbox and then use my phone to upload to instagram.
I ditched Iconosquare for irritating adverts. Now using Websta
Zeisschen: OMG, I'm seriously glad that mirrorless cameras have no problems with lens calibration. Unbelievable for me that this is still an issue in 2014 on DSLR cameras. Great innovation from Sigma though for this redicilous problem.
yes mirror less is holy. dslr bad, dslr shoorters stupid. Me idiot for shooting one zeischen wise mirrorless master. Me kiss feet
King Penguin: Superb pictures.........carrying all that kit too! That's one in the eye to the M43 brigade......
yeah tit for tat
Everytime a new dslr comes auto the m43 brigade is ready to call it it an obsolete piece of junk, but we can't criticize them a bit? Come on people.
Looks fun. Don't dis it. That's close minded.
rjx: Why do all the brands insist on making their "rugged" camera lines with crummy colors and odd looking shapes? Can't they just make a rugged camera that looks more like a traditional camera?
no they can't. There is a law.
Let' s not show anything new at Photokina. So boring, everybody does that.
Well at least Twin Peaks is coming back.
mirrorless aps-h :p
They should call it 4Hero.
wildkat2: Quiet but not so quiet that Pentax could be heard over the Canikon din. God forbid DPR said anything about Pentax…….
patronizing won't help you either. I also see that as an attempt to insult.
Bash me all me want. yslee1 cgarrard. It does not make me less right. Calling me a fanboy does not help your argument.
That's why the K-S1 was in the poll: What was the most interesting new camera at Photokina? I guess. Mr. Britton. Ricoh certainly doesn't price the K-S1 as entry level. (Whatever I may think of it).
They announced three camera's in the summer. K-S1, Q-S1 WG-M1. I know the company is called Ricoh, but they also carry the Pentax brand name. It just seems like the last dslr-maker next to Canon and Nikon deserves a little more attention on a digital photography website. Maybe you just didn't like the pr-guys hair.
Missed the interview with Pentax where you grilled them about revealing FF lenses without revealing a FF body.
firstname.lastname@example.org: Two different card types is perfect because not matter what type you have, you're in business.
Not many people have CF (really? Compact?) lying around. SD is now fast and big an reliable enough for any camera. There is even a 512GB card on the market
ManuelVilardeMacedo: Dear Ricoh people: please give the Pentax brand the mercy shot. The brand formerly known as Asahi Pentax, which gave us spot metering, does not deserve being subjected to so much ridicule. Just call every camera "Ricoh". It's OK. Ricoh has a nice reputation for great cameras too. I'd rather never see a Pentax-branded camera again than see gold point and shoots (and DSLRs with LED lights on the handgrip) with an once prestigious name on it.
Stupidity cannot be helped.
