Really, really beautiful.
Paul Farace: I understand crystal growth mechanics, but still... to look at these and NOT believe in the hand of a creator!
People understanding the mechanics behind this AND believing in a creator is what puzzles me. ;-)
midimid: Anyone own both this and the Rokinon/Samyang 14mm 2.8 on Nikon? I've had this Tokina for about a year and as much as I love it, it seems that the Rokinon easily matches it (or more) for half the cost. So I'm considering selling it and getting the Rokinon instead.
11mm vs 14mm wide end is quite a difference in angle.
There's a serious lack of FF really wide angle lenses for Sony, unfortunately.
jkoch2: Might the Welshman who picked up the gold-plated Lexus II while serving in the UK forces that occupied a segment of Germany in the 45-47 period? It could have fetched someone a mighty favor. Escape from Spandau?
Might the other three still be belong to the estates of Industriellen oder Politiker prominent in den 1930er Jahren?
MarcMedios: Could it be that some common sense is creeping into the scene?
Common sense? No way! It's rather the financial crisis. ^^
Treeshade: In before "where is D7100/70D?" questions: they are in the "Enthusiast interchangeable lens camera roundup".
These "in before" postings suck monkey testicles.
Michael Ma: That would be awesome. Barrel distortion correction for face is just ridiculously bad on some phones. It would be nice if Adobe did a lens profile on the popular smartphones such as galaxy note 3, note 2, s4, s3, etc. That and the extra bit depth would want to me me actually attempt some descent photography.
My expectations? I have none!It's a smartphone. It's made for phone calls and information over the Internet.It's nice that they can take quite usable pictures in good sunlight but people here sound like they were about to replace cameras. They aren't.
The Nokia samples are indeed terrible.My ancient point and shoot makes better pictures.
brecklundin: Given the way Google feels about Adobe...what are the odds they will even use DNG instead my cash is on a new "Google Standard" RAW....beta of course....screw Google. Once they were fine then they got stockholders and stopped being inventive and customer oriented.
Blah.Google is without any doubt still among the most innovative companies in the world.
You'll still be shooting with a ridiculously tiny sensor so you'll have some wonderfully noisy extra bit depth.
Goodmeme: I hope they provide option for Adobe raw which is already open-source AFAIK. Why reinvent the wheel, when a universal wheel has already been designed?
Yay! So finally, we can process those crappy pictures made with microscopically tiny sensors in RAW! Long overdue!I hope this doesn't break the overly abused retrovintagehipstercrapster filters.
Isedg: No touch screen supported is pain
It probably doesn't even come with some Pokemon game preinstalled.
Gosh, this is exciting!I hope it does have some craptastic Instahipsterjunkfilters built in, to make a useless product even more useless.
OneGuy: You label it a gopro killer based on company marketing release? You are not connecting with me and I'm not connecting with you
It's labeled "MAY BE a GoPro killer".
Vegasus: Dear Dpreview, When you say, complicated wifi setup, is that the same with dos 6D?
So... It indeed IS complicated for you, Henry?
photofan1986: "Score" "Dxo"' blah blah...I really wonder how many of you really compared the actual IQ instead of just relying on Dxo figures. I also wonder how we managed to go out and shoot before Dxo!
Dxo is simply benchmarking and measuring equipment.They don't need to be able to produce a good sensor, it's not their business.And yes, Dxo IS the authority in terms of benchmarking sensors and lenses.
Do I make purchasing decision based solely on their results?Of course not. Ergonomics are important to me. General image quality is, which includes a lot more than just the measurable resolution. But then again, I wouldn't buy a camera that scores a whole lot worse than its competitors either.
camerosity: The Nikon P7700 is much better, now the P7800 even better. Sorry Canon.
Unfortunately, Sony spanks them both.
mike kobal: great images! I shot a short video with the Sony RX100 the day after in NYChttps://vimeo.com/52568721
Dude! Woah! Great job and thanks a lot for sharing.
