Will Canon be paying Sigma for licensing the idea?

Is "gw5815" employed by Adobe?

Strikes me that Adobe are cutting their own throats. Does this mean that CS6 will be updated with all the new camera RAW facilities ad infinitum, or will the updates only be vailable to those who rent the newer system?

Why don't Fujifilm, and the rest, improve on the dinosaur technology that is the 200,000 dot EVF?

More of the same?

Haven't Canon got any imagination, you would have great difficulty differentiating any of these from the current offering. Hence, I am now with Nikon.

roy5051: UGLY, UGLY, UGLY! Why on Earth have that bl**dy great lump on the top? Surely it is not beyond the bounds of the designers to build the viewfinder and flash into the body? Looks like it was designed by a committee!!!!!

If I were Nikon, I'd abort it, NOW!

Yes, but they had a mirror box, so there was an excuse - this is NOT an SLR, it's an abortion.

What? 6 months after the last one? Do me a favour, iPad3 owners must be seething.

fg888: Put an adult size sensor chip (aps-c?) inside and a vf (keeping the articulated display) and i will buy.

How come zoom lenses on 35mm compact cameras were quite small compared with the size of the "sensor"? Why can't we have a pocketable full frame "sensor"camera with a 4x zoom with reasonably sized lenses?

Direct link | Posted on Aug 22, 2012 at 20:24 UTC

Really do not see the point in this lens - it is too close to the 10-30mm to be different. Why not introduce a 35mm prime (90mm equivalent) or a 50mm prime (135mm equivalent)? These cameras, like all other CSCs, are made to be used with prime lenses, not oversized zooms.

At last, a camera body that is higher than the width of their lenses, looks much less like a lens with a camera attached!

What a BODGE UP!

I think the problem with HDR is that people who use it overdo the processing. Whilst I agree that properly use HDR processing can make the picture look more natural, as seen by the human eye, the fact that most HDR pictures are over-processed, over-saturated and over-sharpened gives the process a bad name. You only have to look at published pictures in the photographic press to see what I mean.

An idea that I have raised in the past is, why can't camera manufacturers build an extra process into their algorithms when processing the data from the sensor, to evaluate the light hitting different parts of the sensor, and processing the data so that the exposure is equalised. For example, in a landscape picture, if the light hitting the top half of the sensor is brighter than the light hitting the bottom half, under-process the top half to equalise the result of the processing of the bottom half. I am sure this is not beyond the bounds of possibility.

Very interesting perspective on "the photograph" - he talks a lot of sense

Yet another CSC with a high price - why can't these manufacturers produce a CSC in the region of £300. They won't sell many at £500 body only; what market are they aiming at?
