On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2962 comments in total)

b craw: Directed at the many members who provide conscienciously developed opinions, informed by knowledge and experience - thank you. I learn alot from this, you. And DPR, you do a fine job in much the same manner.

As for the sizable subset of members who insist on endlessly pecking at the same small nut, relentless in their denial of the latitudes of subjective appeal, function, etc., I'm at a loss. An even more baffling subset to the subset are those individuals who perhaps own a camera, and are not without some knowledge, but seem like they may have suspended all personal photography until such a time when a camera is produced that is so perfect in every way that it may make any creative effort on their part redundant.

I am at a loss as to why it pops up at all.
Why not just pull back to activate and push back in to deactivate?

mrtaufik: People keep talking that Sony's colors is the worst, is there ANY evidence to prove it? Almost every camera made by Sony or Canon or Nikon or Olympus provide feature to set-up the colors so they will match with almost any taste of their users. Then WHY people always talking about color of one camera is better than the other?

Shoot raw and color rendering is no longer an issue.
I also own the Sony A850, and I get wonderful color out of it. But again, I shoot raw and use CaptureOne to convert.

Now that they have added a builtin EVF, I just might buy this camera. However, I will wait untill next year once the prices drops as I certainly do not need a new camera right now.

Marky boy: who cares.... really....we like what we like, regardless of how, what and where. We can tie ourselves up in knots about post processing, however, it is no different to darkroom skills of old......

The raw file is as close as we come to a digital negative.

So, I load a raw file into photoshop, process the heck out of it and then generate a high quality jpg?
Pass or fail?

Watched it. Wow, absolutely horrible. The tilt/shift thing was just sooooo annoying, that it actually ruined what could have been two excellent time lapse films.

In reply to:

Ayoh: Pretty impressive. It is much better specified on all accounts than its rivals and costs less than 1/3 the price. Why would anyone buy a $30k Hasselblad or PhaseOne?

Well, if you have $30000 to sink into a medium format system... go for it. But not many can justify that sort of expenditure for 'hobby' use.

But the lenses will get you every time.

Unless, of course, all you ever buy is the 75mm.

In reply to:

iae aa eia: I think it was supposed to be already mirroless, with a nice EVF, and its sensor 56 x 41.5mm, as it was the 645 film frame area. 33 x 44mm looks like what the APS format is to the 135 full-frame, a cropped sensor to cut their investment some slack. Not a true medium-medium. Just medium.

44x33 is actually rather small to be truely called medium format.
The MFD back I owned a few years ago was 48x36mm. 2x a FF sensor, and even that was a crop on a true 645 film size.

I would suggest this be called Super35, but unfortunately, that name is already taken. But you sure do get the Super price. :-P

In reply to:

qwertyasdf: The issue is...not about the absolute size of the sensor.
it's the fact that it's called a 645, but without a 645 sensor.

It's like naming a 8-cylinder engine Model V12.

645, in the film ear refered to a 120 negative that had the size of 6cm x 4.5 cm... hence 645.

Yes, and a D800 costs $3000 TODAY.

In reply to:

completelyrandomstuff: This is going to be a great deal. Tell me if I am wrong, but this seems to be a lot less than you pay for Hasselblad lenses, or the camera itself.

$8500 for the body is actually a very good price, but unless you buy only one lens, you can easily expect to pay between 6 and 10000 dollars additional for lenses, pushing the total price into the $15-20000 range.

In reply to:

Brigcam: Might be better call this 55mm, the term medium format is getting a bit to nebulous

Agreed. This is really an 'APS' or crop version of a full 645 frame. Perhaps super 35 would be a better term (except already taken in film format).

As they used to say in the computer world... Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM.

However, this is a nice system. I sold off my Mamiya digital MF a couple of years ago. I replaced it with a Nikon D800E. At $3000 the D800 is a steal.

This Pentax system looks very very nice, but the cost... oh the cost. It is really only affordable to pros or very wealthy amateurs.

In reply to:

Red G8R: Based on the photos, the build quality looks great. But I'm not keen on anything that requires manual focus.

I have the Samyang 7.5mm fisheye and it is very solidly built.
As for MF, no problem at 12mm focal length. Just use peaking.

Direct link | Posted on Mar 22, 2014 at 06:16 UTC

Ohhhh, a 12mm f2 Samyang in MFT mount. And a 10mm f2.8.

Sweet.

Reinhard136: will make a big difference for 4/3 if they have 3 manufactures, it was hard to say that it was a standard if there were only 2 - and nice it is something a bit different to the others.

You seem to have forgotten BlackMagic, who also offer micro four thirds mount cameras.
