Would be tempting at a regular price, but there still a few settings I'd like to select on the go, like the lens type for uncoded ones.
b534202: Does it at least have a battery indicator?
It looks like there is in the viewfinder, activated by the repurposed movie button.
Sisung: Picture samples!
Skulls: When you decrease the number of pixels that increases their individual size and more light is received by the sensor, right? Why then the ISO range is still 12800?6.5 fps in FX mode means 7.5fps in DX mode... well, I have sony a6000 with the same amount of pixels and it can shoot 11fps, with about the same buffer size of 22 shots, 1/4000 max shutter speed, with the same ISO range, it weighs 344 grams and it costs 600 euro. It is APS-C but still... where the price difference comes from?Am I missing something?P.S. And the Sony has got a AEL button which can be programmed to be AF-ON!
For a lot of us, how good it will be at 1600-6400 ISO is more important than how far it will go before being unusable. And the two are not automatically linked: a Sony a7s is usable up to very high ISO but isn't particularly better than other FF cameras in the 1600-6400 range.
photo nuts: Wow... 109 comments within a short space of time...
I am seriously impressed with the D750 specs. Great release.
Only considerably slower than a D700 with an MB-D10 and pro EN-EL4 batteries.
Even though it is not really a D700-level camera in terms of build/ergonomics, this D750 looks like a well-balanced offer and I still might be tempted.
keeponkeepingon: Lars or Chris from interrealtime:
It would be really great to know how this differs from or compares to the alternatives.
For example cortex camera has been out for some time now and gets better reviews on the app store:
Cortex Camera seems to capture 100 video frames, then align and combine them to provide higher resolution (from the FULL HD capture) and lower noise. It seems to be mostly useful for low-light, static subjects. It does well what it does but, for daylight photography, I would expect the regular app to deliver much more detailed images.NightCap Pro seems to be much more versatile (and cheaper).
Fascinating content, but I agree that minimum 45$ for a print or download, restricted to personal use, is a bit steep. Especially coming from a public institution....
bawbaw: These will be useless on digital RF with the deep rear element design, even the modern voigt wideangles are really bad on the M9/240. I was pretty sad when I saw the voigt 21mm on my M9, that having been my goto lens on film.
For about the same price there is better and more sensible L39/M mount wides ,used zeiss zm 21mm for one.
Like the Petzval before. It's cheaper to buy an original used and leave the disappointments to the cool kids that have made the lomography guys snake oil well grow deeper and deeper. Keeping in mind pre lomography these were about £30 on ebay if that.
The Voigt 21mm Skopar is actually quite good on the M9 (corners not as sharp as on M8 but still lightyears ahead of a non-ASPH Elmarit, not to mention Super-Angulons and the likes).
But I agree a used ZM 21 2.8 is probably the best "budget" option on a digital M.
For those looking for a classical look, I'd rather buy a cheap classical Russar than this copy.
Joerg V: 98% Otus @ 25% price? Shut up and take my money!
Sigma should really be thankful to Zeiss: a couple of years ago, who would have qualified a Sigma 50 1.4 @ 1000$ a sensational deal? ;-)
JapanCanon: This costs JPY127,000 in Japan, or about 1,250 USD, excluding tax (now 8%). So street price of about USD$1350 in its home market, when theres no shipping and import duties, insurance, currency issues etc. How annoying pricing!
Hasn't this type of price dumping been always the norm in photo industry?
A local shop sells the DP Merrill for 399€ (each, not the three of them) Maybe I should get one before the last "true Foveon" cameras are gone?
Had an original DP1 and loved its IQ (in good light).
RichRMA: It's an interesting project, an accomplishment if built, but you can buy old cameras for song today. I've seen working TLRs like the Yashica's going for $25 each so if you goal is photography with film, you can get there faster. What would be interesting would be a high resolution DIY real monochrome camera that doesn't cost $10000 like Leica's M. The first digital camera I owned was a low-rez CCD astrocamera I built with boards and plans designed by the former editor of "Astronomy" magazine.
I must admit having researched the possibility of a DIY monochrome digital camera.
There are plenty of monochrome industrial vision cameras/modules that would be a good starting point, but if you want anything better than a basic webcam resolution, you end up with something costing more than 1000€. And an industrial camera based on Leica 's MM Kodak KAI16000 CCD costs over 10,000$!
I keep looking though ;-)
thx1138: Shouldn't that be minimum shutter speed 1/16000, not maximum shutter speed which is 60s. Actually you have them interchanged in the specs.
Strictly speaking,1/16000 should be minimum exposure time, and 60s maximum exposure time.A speed is normally measured in m/s or km/h (and resolution in dpi), but we all understood what was meant ;-)
I think what Adobe needs to offer is an option for enthusiasts using Lightroom to get Photoshop CC at a decent cost. I am an amateur who has purchased every Lr version since v2, and would not mind subscribing to PS CC if it was cheap enough.
But, with the current offers, only existing CS users can get Lr + Ps CC for 10$/month, which I think is a great deal for pros. Existing Lightroom users need to pay the regular 20$/month to get Ps CC alone... Does not make sense to me.
And yes, a rent-to-buy approach would be ideal. I hope they do not remove the option to buy Lightroom in the future cause I don't want to locked into a rental system to keep access to my images catalog.
domina: That's a good thing for photography and videography, it means now everyone will be able to sell to them on the strength of their current images rather than be employed by them permanently because of personal connections or past reputation. However, it's sad for the photographers as employees. Perhaps the newspaper should offer them free support to set up their freelance businesses.
I think we have far enough of low quality stuff already. I guess the next step is they fire journalists because there is enough content on Twitter.
I thought the whole point of paying for a newspaper or a magazine was to have some quality content analyzed, written and documented in a professional way...
Mister J: Snake-oil suit talk.
I guess we're all now looking for a Photoshop replacement.
Pixelmator is some of the way there, but still crashes and hangs, so development needed. Even so, they must be drooling at the market opportunity.
As for Lightroom, Aperture is the excellent alternative.
FCP is now a pretty good video editor.
InDesign? Quark is improving by the day, and is well priced.
I can't think of an Illustrator alternative, but maybe there's one I don't know about.
There's plenty of alternatives that may suit the hobbyist market, but probably not a professional looking for an integrated workflow. But let's face it, CS was never priced for the hobbyist market - and most of the individuals using it probably used it without a valid license. And Adobe seems to think that consumers will still find a way to do so with CC ;-)
OTOH I can't really understand the bashing about Lightroom. It is not subject to the new pricing and remains a very strong option. Aperture? I think it has its hare of issues (very long update cycles, lack of consistency of Apple in supporting its cloud-based services...).
EssexAsh: now capture 1 pro has added catalogues there is zero reason to stick with lightroom and CS5 is still more than capable if i feel the urge to do more than remove spots. Cheerio Adobe.
Capture One Pro is still more expensive than Lightroom, although the upgrades are about the same or cheaper.
I have C1 Pro but have not updated since v5 as I now almost exclusively use Lightroom. v7 has caught up but why should I switch?
Good news and reasonable price... at last! I must admit I had never been a fan of those expensive plug-in suites that were not always doing a convincingly better job than the host software.
I only bought Color FX a while ago, but as a plug-in to Nikon Capture NX. Not sure if I qualify for the free offer!
Interesting. This looks like an easy and low cost way of improving dynamic range in small sensors.
Hopefully RAMBUS will be more successful than when they provided the proprietary and expensive RDRAM technology for the first Intel Pentium 4 motherboards.
mpgxsvcd: These look like very interesting new cameras. You can't argue with how small the NEX-3N is. That is really small for APS-C. It will sell very well.
It is much smaller than the F3 but hardly smaller or lighter than the 5N/5R.
