gskolenda: I don't get it! $6,500 bucks for a 16mp FF camera body, they don't need to sell very many of these to make a huge profit, regardless of the market conditions!

This is a big time Rip in my mine, I would take the D800-D800e any day over this camera.

Sport, sport ...

nevada5: Please please please - dynamic range.

it will have the same old sensor !!! :/

Direct link | Posted on Feb 12, 2014 at 07:58 UTC

with my limited acknowledges about sensor I think this one isn't any better than any actual FF sensor on the market, but the it's advantage is that it will use total surface of the sensor to create an fullhd video because the whole sensor has exactly the same resolution as the fullhd while the 20mp+ sensors can't do this, in fact to create a fullhd D800 for example will have to take only several pixels from given surface to avoid re-sizing from 36 mp and so it uses only some part of whole surface that's impact the IQ in low light, conclusion : the size of individual pixels is important for video making but is irrelevant for photography where you can resize and so this penalize big resolution sensor for video making and that's why Canon made this one with such big pixels

Marty4650: Hasselblad could learn a LOT from Leica.

Hasselblad takes a nice camera, puts a clown suit on it, and sells it for a 600% premium. Then everyone has a good laugh.

Leica takes a nice camera, makes it even nicer without changing anything on the inside. They just improve the styling, create a bunch of nice cases and straps, and include some better software. Then they slap a more reasonable 80% premium on it. At least relatively speaking it is a lot more reasonable.

Then some people actually buy it.

You have to give Leica credit for this.

well they could improve jpeg engine of pana at least but I don't think so

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 Sample Images article (69 comments in total)

In reviews it would be nice to have some charts like focal range/aperture to have better idea about brightness of lenses especially for those super zooms , because here I see 20-1200 for 2.8-5.9 and I say myself "cool !!! it will be pretty bright at middle range" but as I could conclude from samples it drops pretty fast too 5.6 (I assume not knowing if it's the max aperture for those focal ranges) and keeps relatively fixed it's aperture to it's max zoom

On Nikon launches budget-friendly Coolpix L620 ultra zoom article (40 comments in total)

The raison why Nikon ot other companies put as some say those 'tiny' sensors with such high megapixel count on their compacts is Sony and the mass production effect, that's what the sensor market propose them, and they take it because it's probably the best product for the price
if they put bigger sensor, they have to put bigger lenses etc and so on, and the price will rise and so the sales will go down, if you want a big sensor compacts you can have it, there are several ones depending of what you mean by saying 'big' sensor
1/2.3 already have it's market and production lane, on so it's somehow the optimum for sensors that provided and megapixels that rise are usefull for marketing and dont take from you anything but your disk-space so it isn't end of the world

As there is no info about aperture it is 3.3-5.9

How Samsung achived to obtain such detailed jpeg at 100% from 13mp 1/3 sensor when their 1/2.3 camreas are so bad ?

I think this is the biggest of pros of this camera ;)

"trolls" isn't the the right word here.

Menneisyys: "Unfortunately for mobile photography enthusiasts the Nokia representatives would not comment on whether we can expect Nokia 808 camera technology in a Windows 8 phone any time soon."

That's bad news. That's what I've been waiting for - a 41 Mpixel monster with OIS and, hopefully, 1080p60 / stereo Rich recording. Or even 4K, even if "only" at 15-20 fps.

808 was announced much later 2009 and at that moment Nokia and more others were using Sony sensors in their flagships

I don't judge it by it's pixel output, but for it's size, that's normal for 41 mp 1/1.2 sensor to be noisy at 100% view, but it was bad event at web view, above 800 ISO there was some color cast and banding (but great details), when Sony's 1/2.3 back-lit are pretty good up to 1600, maybe that was Nokia's bad jpeg processing, but is suspect that at time Nokia gone for other sensor supplier (due to unique size and spec of sensor) but which wasn't as advanced as Sony's sensors
PS I think the same thing is happening with HTC One

Lets hope it will have better sensor (Sony), original 808 sensor was actually mediocre for it's size especially at high ISO department,

On Panasonic DMC G6 preview (199 comments in total)
In reply to:

rladd: A Question:

The G6 uses the same sensor as the G5 and the GH2, right? Panasonic's press release says "the new Venus Engine is attains high-performance signal processing with the advanced noise reduction system." I'm wondering to what extent image quality can be enhanced without changing the sensor. Any thoughts?

I love the G5; it handles great and produces great images but at about ISO 1600 noise starts to become an issue. If the G6 produces a one-stop equivalent advantage over the G5 in terms of noise I will definitely buy it.

I think it's mainly about jpeg processing

ARTASHES: curious to know more about the sensor and if it has global shutter like recent Sony camera

today's cameras with CMOS sensors use "rolling shutter" for videos which causes some distortion with fast moving object or when you moving fast the camera, that's somehow nasty especially for professional use, that problem can be solved with "global shutter"
both of them are electronic shutters

Earthlight: Is this really still the same old 18mp sensor? What is this, some weird alternate reality where sensor development does not exist?

G1X's sensor isn't better than anything you listed, and in fact todays Mft and nex series have better sensors than any Canon APS-C camera ever made

On Hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy S4 post (135 comments in total)

Saw some samples, they were very good to me,
One thing I can't understand, if Samsung has such a great jpeg processing to squeeze such detailed and balanced (even when viewing at 100%) results from such a tinny sensor (at least at base ISO) why their P&S have such a mediocre IQ

Direct link | Posted on Mar 16, 2013 at 22:55 UTC as 33rd comment

Looks like nice camera, an X100 alternative maybe but first of all it has no OIS something that isn't really negligable coopeled with f 2.8 lenses means that in low light to have a sharp photo you gonna have to stay at 1/15 at least (I had Casio Z850 with f2.8 and no OIS) when I can obtain some sharp pictures with f3.3 and 1/6 in the same conditions (assuming that we take stood objects) and then there are some compacts that has even better IS and more than step faster lenses than this Nikon, so this isn't going to outclass todays high end compacts in low light by big margain, it will do it in critical IQ and DOF which makes it's market pretty restricted
