OlavM: Q: What is the exact meaning, expressed in metric units, by the description: "large 2/3-inch sensor" ?(this is a quote from the FUJI website): http://fujifilm-x.com/x10/en/story/story2/page_03.html )
In my world, by my immediate and intuitive interpretation: 2/3 of <something>, is the same as <something> multiplied by approx. 0,666667
However, the illustration at the FUJI website clearly show ANOTHER "story": The diagonal is 10,99 millimeters, the long side is 8,786 mm. NEITHER of these measures does relate to one inch by a factor of : 2/3 ????Why this linguistic mumbo-jumbo ???
Thanks, "Revenant", here's the answer from the link provided: ... stuck (although it should have been thrown out long ago). There appears to be no specific mathematical relationship .....Feel kind'a relieved of my frustration, yes ... but it is stupid, must get rid of this old rubbish language. It's as easy as: % of FF (full frame) in area. Or sq. mm (mm2).

Something VERY STRANGE, not to say suspicious, about this sample shot !Foreground is outside depth-of-field (focus), same goes for the background, but then - "MAGIC !" : The background is coming into focus again ! See the upper part, in the middle: This should have been at least as much out of focus, as the top of the instrument panel. BUT it is not, it's PIN SHARP .
What is going on here, DPReview ????Sample shots are MANIPULATED ????
This has to have an explanation, and a pretty darn'd good one, too !!
The quality of the ISO 6400 jpg's from this combo is simply stunning ! Seeing materials like backlit glass rendered this natural at ISO 6400, is convincing ! Vivid colours, not exaggerated, seems just natural. It pops into one's mind: Now is the time stop lugging around my trusty old "crop-gear" (Canon), take the mFt-train instead ?
Good ! -Did anyone ask, exposing the brand-name of equipment used THAT MUCH ? A kind of "deal", coupled to the number of "clicks" on this clip, would do the trick here. I do not express any suggestion of the existence of such a deal here, but do point at the rather obvious possibillity of it...
Most interesting: EOS HD's first statement:
The Nikon D5200 is the best mid-range Nikon yet for video. What is more of a surprise is the relish in which it takes on the much more expensive 5D Mark III, Panasonic GH3 and Nikon’s own flagship the D800 and D4.
If I'm going to get some pro-grade video gear, maybe I'm better off going for Nikon D5200 and a couple of lenses, (and sell off my Canon gear), because here in Norway the price difference between a Canon 5D III and a Nikon D5200 is around: $ 3.300,-
(-and then having a 24 SLR capable of producing pro-images as a bonus ...)
Besides hefty colours, does this thing take pictures :-)
hindesite: Oooh! 20MP!!
And "advanced imaging functions"!
Disappointed it doesn't have 35x optical zoom, though.
Why settle for 35 X ? (does exist, remember ?) No, let's demand 60 X ! (its only a marginal possibility that we're gonna need 60X one of these days, but then, huh :-D
SUCH a bokeh !
Agree on bokeh, and sharpness wide open, looks promising indeed ! I'm a bit uncertain on diffraction limit - chromatic aberration seem to be really well controlled (or maybe it's the OM-D M-5 doing just fine here ....) All in all, really promising this !
Empty ! (at least to me, also..)
What a test photo, thanks !
Because I'm norwegian, so - regarding trolls department ........ !
Such a fine result, with a really promising cam .....
"One key difference compared to the Canon EOS 650D is that the D5200's screen isn't touch sensitive "
It seems to me that DPR must have been thinking something like this:
'Ahem....the Canon 650's user-interface is about 1 generation ahead ... ....well, we DID make a remark on that (rather cleverly camouflaged as a text to some picture, probably only a few will read this ...)'
Question: You are Nikonians, huh ?
This is a MAJOR difference between two 'top volume models' in the present market of DSLR's, and as such, deserves quite a different amount of attention, discussion and focus, than chosen by dpreview for this preview......Nikon is clearly behind the trends of mass market here !
Stills photo redefined: Film, then finding the right frame....
cgarrard: Now that's a superzoom. Raw and constant f/2.8 with an excellent EVF to boot.
Might have to get this bad boy. Wish there were more product images, like the rear of the camera for example.
I'm not Lars Rehm, but allow me, Lights Perfection to answer: Front filter size is: 52 MM
Koulang: 12MP hardly satisfies the users. I would be excellent if it features 16PM like its younger brother FZ60. 12PM was good if it came out 3 years ago, but now it is the lowest.
To *peevee1* : You're so WAAAY out of line here !
Already my 8 years++ old 12x f 2.8 zoom on my FZ10 does MUCH better than your figures, how come ? (ask yourself, please).If your 'calculations' were to be anything recembling precise, then the full res. samples at Panasonic'c website must be a fake, but hey man, they're NOT ! Maybe 12mpix isn't 'the real thing',resolution is maybe a bit less, but hey, talking about < 1 mpix, one must laugh ! (check samples at Panasonic's website). Good luck !
Very inspirational. Great compose and tech. Congrats. Thanks a lot !
mike kobal: Nice, but for a few Dollars more, I can get the D800 and the Atomos Ninja and record 4:2:2 uncompressed video
The native (and yes, compressed) video from Mk II is commonly named RAW - "lossless" a.s.o., I have learned from a semi-pro videographer. He says approx. 4:1 compression is Ok to most of his work ? How come ?
Peiasdf: Light field + super hi-res sensor a la Nokia 808 + SONY fab + iPhone interface = good consumer P&S.
Don'y worry about using too many mega- (or terra-) bytes ! The "byte-cost" is always lowering, by increasing demand ! Give it some years, then a tera-pixel sensor can do things NO kind of optics ever will be able to, and do it cheaply, by this almost unbelievable new technology ! Keep visions alive, man !Example:In the late -70's, I worked with an "IBM System32" having approx. 0,013 Mbyte, or 13k RAM (yes, thirteen Kilobytes, or 13000 bytes RAM) and a 5Mb hard-drive. Nevertheless, this computer could run "heavy" applications, like invoicing, salaries, general ledger and so on, for a fish-exporting company of 35-40 employees. So don't worry about using many Mb (or Tb) to perform seemingly simple tasks ! That's what ALL computing is about today, superior technology and flexibility, by seemingly: "Overkill" !
