That's a pretty damn good shot of the guitarist at 12,800!
So, Canon comes up with a system that can compete with two year old Sony tech? Seems like a win for Sony.
barry reid: A truly Bizarre test. Why use two lenses that couldn't be more different, rather than drop the same Tamron or sigma on to each body, to at least get some semblance of consistency in lens performance?
I thought a prime vs a zoom lens seemed odd.
Sounds like a great little camera!
aris14: Ι find it extremely difficult to see the use of these cams anyway...All these about street photography which needs some peculiar cams is IMO rather a philology.Street photography as a term/art does not need a certain cam with certain abilities or whatsoever, just something handy and reliable, top IQ is not its main quest.The only positive thing in these cams is that they explore miniaturization.
I just set a good depth of field so I don't have to worry; I know my subject will be in focus. I figured that out when I was a high school yearbook photog and needed candid student shots.
Just checking some different cameras on this great widget, and saw something strange. On the Bailey's Irish bottle, on the word Irish, some cameras pick up some mottling and some don't. What would cause that? It seems to happen in both RAW and JPEG.
I'm all for pocket filmmaking! I'm shooting a Doctor Who parody web series on my iPad! (Yes, you do need a big pocket).
zak302pa: Review of this article: verbose - should not take 40 pages to get point across, the conclusions ran 2+ pages with an open-ended quest for more work (funding?) to be done. Results were predictable and unremarkable. (I tried to keep this short with no references to family !!!!!!!!!!!!!)
40 pages? That article needs to be reviewed... and edited.
Michaels7: I read the reviews, but there are two things that I do beyond this. I go to YouTube and watch the actual owners give both a hands on, their feedback and feelings on the product. Second, I do my own hands on by heading to the stores and testing the products out.
Yes, YouTube reviews are wonderfully revealing! It's more of the personal touch, if you will.
I read negative reviews very carefully. One star given because a shipment was late, or the color isn't really scarlet but wine, or the person doesn't actually know how to use a camera, isn't a real review.
This reminds me of the old stereo receiver/amp/pre-amp crap, when you had to look at an oscilloscope to see any differences. To the human ear, there was no difference between .0001% distortion and .0002%, just as to the human eye, at the size you're actually going to be viewing photos, there is no discernible difference between these two cameras and a dozen others out there.
I applaud anyone who uses their imagination and ingenuity to do things Hollywood wastes millions on, but come on, this is merely a rotating camera rig. A very well-made one, for virtually no money, but not bullet-time.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA... oh, wait, they're serious...
Nishi Drew: Yes, reality is there are people who would work for free, especially by those that think it's just a cool enough opportunity (I was there) and that doesn't help anyone. That someone who shot for free gets nothing, anyone else he replaced definitely gets nothing, and the opportunity for that shoot is gone, unless the results are stunning. But one can't go far shooting for free, do that and it could let others know that you're "cheap" and competing purely on value is not a good position as opposed to "getting the job done, and with great results".
Too often I cave in to doing a no-pay gig though, but as always, keep a good attitude and I'll do the best I could with the limitations at hand (no pay means no rentals too) and often I'll at least get unexpected food/transportation covered and that's great. Otherwise, only for family should anything be free, for friends it's a choice, but still respectable to pay/be paid some compensation.
Josh, that's a great idea! Thanks, I'm going to do that!
How about an affordable one whose iq isn't blown away by others?
Thank you! Good-bye, Adobe b****rds!
I don't understand any of this...
Thank God! The current video from Canon was SOOOOOO awful!
For a guy who says he's pretty much off the grid, this Filipowicz seems quite connected.
Greedy b*****ds! Well, this opens up the field for some other company to step up and compete, not only technologically, but philosophically, as well. I hope millions of PS users kick Adobe to the curb.
