Amazing photo! Incredible image!
Beautiful pastel look.
I like the 1st, 2nd and 4th placed photos. But this one takes the crown for its mysterious and eerie look. Fabulous!
Somehow, I find this photo more appealing than the winning photo. Love the colors!
A simple but magical shot. Love it!
Somehow I am deeply mesmerized by this photo. I cannot explain it, but the composition really draws me into the photo. Great job!
This photo is MILES ahead of the winning shot. So much better and prettier. BTW, where is this place?
One of the most scathing previews I've read on DPReview. Ha, ha...
Maverick_: Sony just put the nails in the APS-C and Mirrorless cameras coffin. The future is only FF DSLRs and Phone cameras. Wanna know why Pana struggles with the GH3, it was priced 600 over where it should have been. Nice job Sony. Now the APS-C is going to go down in price and eventually move out completely and make way for low priced FF.
We'll see about that.
When the first mirrorless cameras hit the streets, there were similar prognostications: the end of SLR cameras, blah, blah blah. Many years later, mirrorless cameras are still struggling to gain a foothold in the US and European markets (see CIPA results).
Having owned an EVF camera for one year, I have personally sworn off EVF technology. There's nothing like a good old OVF.
Furthermore, lens selection for Sony is still VERY limited.
Time will tell if Sony is going to succeed or not. I am not so optimistic about their camera line.
Seriously, why will anyone buy these cameras when the Sony RX100 is out there?
YouDidntDidYou: Ah OK so shooting live view for photography the Canon EOS 70D's focus performance is just as good as the Panasonic L10 (which has full tilt and swivel LCD) from 2008 hmmm....
Yes, but the 70D comes with a highly responsive touch screen that can used for AF and most importantly, an OVF.
When Panasonic has the same features in an interchangeable camera, let me know.
RichRMA: Could have been another nail in the mirrored DSLR coffin. Should have been. Canon went to the end of the high-dive board, took a look, and walked back.
Did you read the analysis in Nikon's financial report? You should. It's reported in DPReview.
new boyz: EVF is the future. OVF, you can start dying now.
I HATE EVF. Have been using it for close to a year, so I know what I am talking about. I am selling my EVF camera to return to good old OVF stuff.
DVT80111: Live view AF is still useless for still picture until Canon add a EVF.The screen is too small and my arm is not long enough.
I have been useing EVF close to a year now.
I HATE EVF. Plan to sell my EVF camera and to return to good old OVF.
ProfHankD: "In the default Face-detection + tracking mode, pointing the camera at 'faceless' scenes can take about a second to focus on just about anything you point it at. " ... "What's sure is that live view and video phase-detect autofocus has a new champion in Canon's new Dual Pixel AF."
Really? I mean, it's not like anybody else has been making cameras with fast(er) PDAF live view... well, Sony's had it since 2008 (in the A350 and every DSLR and SLT since then) and Nikon has had a fast on-sensor PDAF since 2011 (in the Nikon 1 line), but hey, they're not Canon. Amazon sell a lot of Canons, do they? ;-)
Sony SLT camera has PDAF sensors OFF the imaging sensor, no different than standard DSLR. The only difference is the translucent mirror does not need to flip.
Did you even read DPReview review about the pitfalls of the Nikon 1 PDAF sensor?
A remarkably simple but effective photo. Only slight complaint is the green band around the sun.
This photo really stands out among all the entries. Instead of showing just the moon, the photo depicts a lighthouse too. Two bright light sources competing for attention. The green reflection on the water is the icing on the cake. Nice!
The first and third placed entries are my favorites. Beautiful lighting!
This is a great photo. Need to make my way to Tuscany!
