Irrespective of the fact that I can't afford it...
How do we feel about the falling man?
(EDIT - apologies, I didn't see WAH ask more or less the same question)
A 'photographer-friendly' camera? What will they think of next ?!?!?!
photophile: The whole vote +1 or -1 thing is puerile & childish for an informative, premiere website such as DPreview - pandering heavily to the teenage facebook/youtube generation. DPreview´s hand has probably been forced by Amazon to include the feature to help with their sales (despite DPrevew telling us they are "independent"). But we do have a choice - just DON´T use it. Let Amazon figure out its own sales strategy and let DPreview feel the full force of ownership by a larger organisation.
Sadly I can't '-1' this, but if I could, how would that help Amazon?
Urbanus1234: Damn...this camera does not belong at 12,800. This image is just simply falling apart and beyond usable. Just goes to show you that fast glass always trumps high ISO.
Nonsense. Not usable for what? Vogue? Of course not. For recording things that people who would buy this camera wouldn't have been able to record before? Absolutely.
12,800 looks quite like 1600 on my 350D. Three stops in five years on entry level DSLRs seems like quite good progress to me...
The use of the word 'appears' is fair, btw, since the investigation is incomplete; 'initial conclusions'...'all the indications [so far]'...'appears to have very little effect'...'We're still working through the necessary studio and 'real world' shooting'.
ogl: White orbs is very rare effect.
'Easily reproducible' ≠ 'rare'
Kelton Sweet: This is rough. I have always enjoyed the retro cameras... with their early-60's look. But NOW they are making retro cameras that harken to MY era! Youch!I must say that you run the risk of looking pathetic with this camera, though. If I wasn't a camera buff, I would think, "aw, look at that person using that 13 year old film camera.". It looks too young to be "retro", right?
Yeah you need a real big camera to look cool, right...?
