It would be better if DPR specifies all the 35mm equivalent apertures instead of relying on the marketing figures
will the 5-axis IS/VR be damaged if I were to clean the sensor with contact-based tools?
Please check the metering sensor is really 9x6 or 9x7 array. DPR has problem counting the rows & columns of the iFCL sensor?
SJ4000 sells between 100 - 120 USD with complete mounting. Eat that GoPro.
How does this compare with Nikon DF, D4s, 1Dx, 6D?
Is the USB cable Leica branded, or some PRC OEM? :)
I fear my new signup account would be hacked.
Does it have OIS?
Get rid of the tiny FX logo in front, and can really pass off as a vintage :D
Seems like the FF sensor corners is slightly obscured by the E-mount. Will that translate to severe vignetting?
Stefan Zeiger: I've been shooting for some months with a GigaPan EPIC and a Sony RX100. I also had problems with blurry pictures in the beginning but haven't seen those any more since I bought a more stable tripod (but, of course, that's with a much smaller and lighter-weight camera than the one you used in the review; plus, I spent more on the new tripod than on the GigaPan). I wish there were an option on the GigaPan for a delay before taking each shot to give the camera time to settle. As a work-around, you can increase the per-shot time and use a self-timer on the camera (2 seconds on the RX100, so it greatly increases the time needed to take all the shots).
I have to agree on the software. It's OK when it works but without a way to control it manually, it is very limiting. I tested many stitching tools and found Autopano Giga to be the most capable with the pre-aligned shots from the GigaPan (but also one of the most expensive options).
I would still prefer my RRS omni pivot package as it is designed to be future-proof, maintenance-free. Takes no more than 2 minute to setup in either portrait/landscape mode and fire away.
alexmitchellphoto: I know of so many pro photographers out there with illegal copies of photoshop/lightroom , some of the same said photographers get their knickers in a twist about copyright theft, perhaps Adobe are feed up with the volume of software theft and are protecting their investment!
If PS makes it a $70 or $100 purchase things would be wholly different.
Can root or jailbreak to bypass the security code?
Do a HTC One review, as the camera is term ultra pixels that uses a far larger single-plate cmos sensor with only 4MP.
RUcrAZ: They still lack a sliding lens cover. Using it as a cellphone, there are the inevitable thumbprints on the lens/clear cover. We spend so much time keeping our (normal cam) lenses clean, yet cellphones are behind on this issue. There is always the question of flare, created by the clear lens cover. (Both problems are prevalent in my Nokia N95-8G (5 megapixel.)
It's just a phone with bumped-up megapixels. No mention of what lenses are used. For years, camera lenses on phones are naked as it is, and pose no IQ problem at all. Just use some parts of the clothing to wipe before firing up the camera app and you are good to go.
People have to manage their expectations when comparing a 6D to a 5D3 which is 1.5x the cost of a 6D. You get what you paid for.
How can a cheaper D600 body trounce a premium D800 by that much? The iso noise performance is significantly better than D800 in all ranges.
How does it differ from eyefi ?
The reason why connection is spotty is the sd card being inside the camera, wifi signals are greatly attenuated so one may have intermittent connections. On the other hand, cameras with wifi generally fare much better.
Sony swallows Konica/Minolta, then Olympus, what next?
