$2,800 camera, $2 shutter release. A bargain!
While I'm not yet in the market for one yet, I'm very, very happy to see that camera manufacturers are jumping on the bandwagon of putting bigger sensors in smaller cameras. This can only lead to good things.
I'd love to have been a fly on the wall at the meeting where Nikon got on the floor and begged Lexar to help them get the ball rolling on this XQD thing.
makeitworst: Where the hell are the XD Cards!!??? I have Olympus cameras, GREAT Cameras, that are now media card Orphans because these jerk Flash Card makers adopt and DUMP formats at their whims! The largest XD cards that were ever made were 2GB! And those are nearly impossible to find! Even CF cards are becoming too expensive and hard to find (for older DSLRs like the early Nikon's before the switch to SD)!! There was nothing wrong with CF, considering the size they could have made 128 or 256GB cards by now!
This is BS!
I know I can't find cheap CF cards anywhere. Excluding every place I've ever thought to look.
A full-frame 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens for $200?
This means that Canon DID read all my letters I sent them!
happypoppeye: Is it me (and my computer at work) ...or do all these photos look extremely "flat"
They do seem just a bit too muted. But that's nothing you can't adjust real easy in post with basic software. Better muted than oversaturated.
For horizontal and square photos, it's quite nice. Vertical photos, not so hot. But so be it. They're finally trying. This only bodes well.
I know it's irrelevant, but... Egads. What a minger.
Can you adjust how many "blades" the simulated bokeh has? There are precious few lenses that produce genuinely round "orbs." Not to mention, the shape squashes a bit by the further from the center of the frame they are.
I'd still rather spend the cash on a fast prime and an ND filter. Better to create than to edit.
