Searching: Nothing like lots of hype to get everyone going!
I agree 100% There is a lot of hype here..Someone will claim this is the best camera ever made until their next big brand sponsored assignment...Its rather easy to praise a camera with financial strings attached.
Great concept...still visual art at its best. Having frequented Nikon forum in these past few months I have a feeling this project could only be made possible using Nikon camera embedded with Sony sensor....I was told Canon sensors are riddled with noise, subpar DR and underwhelming IQ compared to their Nikon/Sony counterpart. I am perplexed...
xgeier: bought mine last week, made a couple of test shoots mounted on my old X-M1.pics are straight out of the camera, no pp no raw, just jpeg.
really nice shots with stunning bokeh!! which simulation did you use?
Nathan Cowlishaw: It's art but there's a fine line between photography and the digital painting and manipulation. I could see this taking off in a graphic arts publication but this is digital imaging in the realm of complete manipulation. Imagine a photojournalist trying to pass this off. In it's context, it's art much like painting and so is photography but there has to be drawn an ethical line between what is photography and what's not so much...
Think about it.
@ Nathan Cowlishaw..Based on your argument Jerry Uelsmann's work is not photography ? He manipulate his photos as well...
Well Jerry Uelsmann blended negative to produce dreamlike sequences that he is known for. He manipulate shots though not in digital sense.......Your argument is not convincing.
joyclick: The gear this guy uses is far down the rung of entry level stuff,sheer skill and imagination has taken his photography to a level that will put "the latest and the best" gear owners to shame.
I couldn't agree more...This guy would not believe how much gear Simon ,sgoldswo, has at his disposal, all for mere shots of London buses....This guy defines what talent is as opposed to gear heads that are so prolific on dpreview.
Is Dpreview working for Nikon by any chance? To begin with they missed the whole flare issue,then denied it and now this so called investigation (primitive compared to other review sites) that had to bring Canon in make dpreview feel good about their argument....Plain silly!
Sharpness,lack of CA,colors,contrast,minimal distortion and tones are simply superb. Its hard to believe such quality can come out of APS-C sensor!!
