If Ricoh were to use two of these new 25 MP Sony multi-format mobile phone camera modules from the Xperia Z5 Premium, they could produce a 29 MP 360° image output, going by the way they will be using images of both modules at the current state of operation. That would be a very attractive resolution.

joe6pack: It is pretty cool to view 360 degree video on Youtube.

But then the content... All I see is the photographer having fun in a guided tour. It really is just what the NK want us to see. Maybe the photographer is used to censorship.

Censorship? In the totalitarian gulag state of Singapore? Unpossible.

@HarryG7

Thank you so much for going to such lemgths in order to create the proper support for Sigma-cameras, which should have been done right in the first place by the screw-yous at Adobe. I find it technologically fascinating that you prupose to actually use Sigma Photo Pro in the background for best conversion-quality of Foveon-files. We Foveon-Fans should go absolutely mad about your clever and distinct proposition. I sincerely hope that you get a huge support for MetaRaw!

SILVER??? On the short, but not on the long run. Here's why:

These folks (and alike!) should be prescribed SIGMA-cameras. That'd bring them down from their frenzies...

On Hands-on with the HTC One post (30 comments in total)

4 Ultra-pixels, oh my goodness ;-)...
It's just a normal 2µm 4MP Bayer-Sensor combined with some "propaganda".
So it only has an effective 1 MP true RGB-resolution.
Totally lame. My Nokia 808 has a 1.4µm 41.48 MP Bayer-Sensor which gives me effective 10.37 MP of true RGB-resolution.
HTC will just be trying to make the best out of additional well-capacity offered by larger sensor diodes and BSI-design. The rest is anything but "PureView", as clearly shown by the test photos from the HTC One which are circulating on the web.
The whole concept of this phone's camera could have been a lot more interesting, if they had managed to integrate a 4MP global shutter sensor, instead of THIS old sham...

In reply to:

Fatality: DPreview instead of doing another review of a 2 megapixel upgrade from Nikon and Canon, how about doing a review of DP1 or DP2? These cameras have been around for a long time offering a totally different sensor technology, but there is not a single beep out of this so called "Photography Review" website. I had to go on different sites to see how these cameras brutally crush the competition in per pixel detail.

Users can do user reviews here, too! ;-) If they're good, they might even get shown on the start page.

In reply to:

plasnu: In Japan, Sigma has just started cash back campaign for $250-600 for any who currently owns any sigma digital camera. If you own DP2 Merrill, you can buy DP3 Merrill for about $550.

And what if I own a DP2s?

Direct link | Posted on Feb 22, 2013 at 17:34 UTC

In Europe they want 1099€ or what currently translates to 1447$
THAT is one big huge leap from the US price of 999$
Very reminiscent of the 3K$ vs. 3.1K€ for the RX1...

On Sigma introduces Photo Pro 5.5 with Monochrome mode article (20 comments in total)
In reply to:

brelip: when are they adding retina display support?

Why? Apple's notebook screens employ 6-bit LUTs, hence only properly displaying 252k colors.
It's totally unsuitable for any serious photo or video work, since there will always be drop-offs those screen's LUTs simply won't deal with right. Get a good external monitor and you'll be fine. Or alternatively a HP EliteBook with a HP DreamColor screen. That'll do the job, since it uses internal 12-bit-LUTs. That's a different world of color detail you'll be seeing there ;-)

In reply to:

3DSimmon: I wish the monochrome options would be available to the older dp and sd models as well

That would be great. DP1, DP2, DP1s, DP2s, DP1x, DP2x. SD9, SD10, SD14, SD15... SIGMA seem to have completely ignored legacy owners by limiting the monochrome options to the current sensor-generation-models only.
Well, demand for the newer models might go up even further because of this, since the monochrome-options, or rather really "extensions" should certainly become a standard tool for any serious SIGMA-camera owner from now on.

Thomas Kachadurian: The DP3 has to be the silliest offering Sigma has ever presented.

I don't know what they're smokin' over there at Sigma, but I'd like to try some.

Tom

Just buy a DP3M, when it's sold, and you'll find out first-handedly... although, your strong prejudice doesn't seem to encourage that prospect, unfortunately...

It would be great, if they used a higher processing bit-depth for the RAW-data; even an option for RAW-output would be nice! And: 4K video recording with 1x or 2x zoom. Or TRUE 1080p with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling in the new h265-codec and using the new opus audio codec for multi-channel surround.
