SunnyFlorida: In L.A.? Just wait til he photographs a gangbanger, he'll look like Swiss cheese
The only thing keeping this guy's windows intact is the "wtf just happened" factor.
Regardless of profit or loss, I think that if this ruling were made universally known the entire industry of limited edition artwork will have ended.
EOSHD: Imagine this in video Ex-Tele mode on the GH2/GH3. The extra crop factor would make it a telephoto over 9000mm!
We'll have to see how the image quality stacks up to an 8' PVC pipe with a hole in the cap.
Benarm: 9 out of 10 photographers on DPR envy this guy, but would never dare to do anything like this in a million years. Hence the hate. :)
I envy no one for breaking rules designed to preserve one of mankind's greatest achievements. I am not so stupid as to think my personal satisfaction is more important. Now that he has, you know others will try the same.
IMO, should definitely see some jail time.
Always nice to see photography-related materials on Digital Camera Review
bobbarber: Yes, they stole it.
It's awful hard to like the photographer, though.
Well, knowing that your behavior through email has a certain likelihood of ending up on the internet, where potential customers could see it displayed, should probably be in the mind of anyone running a business.
I sure as hell wouldn't seek her for services if I'd seen this.
AT THE GVERY LEAST WE CAN SAY THAT SHE DIDNT DO THIS!!!!!1!!!!! So I guess that's better than nothing.
It is entirely possible to be in the right and still be a total a$$hole about it.
SeeRoy: I feel confident that The Young General always makes the correct decisions in the interests of His People. I see this as continuing the implementation of Juche as pioneered by his predecessors - The Dear Leader and of course The Great Leader, Kim Il Sung. The recent visit to the PRK of the notable American intellectual sports star Dennis Rodman shows us that the Young General is eager to share his nation's cultural wealth with less fortunate countries.
gwales, you have made my day. I cannot like your comment enough.
Nightwings: Further proof .... that... the larger the pixel.. the less noise the overall image will have. ;)
Again, without some actual images from the sensor it doesn't do much good to speculate that it's beating anything :)
Common sense does say that it will probably offer some benefit, but whether that benefit is something amazing over binning a higher MP sensor is something that really needs to be evaluated from the actual output of the sensor.
While that may seem common sense, I think I'd hold off on a statement like that until there are actual images to view :)
Allow me to completely depart from the "she's a terrible person" parade for a moment.
Having been around similar situations with both males and females flying off the handle, I say as not a small guy that there was really nothing she could have done to make things better aside from physically restrain the man. How many here have tried to physically restrain someone for an extended period? Someone much stronger, as I imagine this man is?
The police were probably right that intervening probably would have only resulted in making him even more angry and getting the both of them assaulted.
So, instead we have photos illustrating a bit of what situations like this can be like. Many may never have any idea otherwise. It's very easy to forget about if you are lucky enough to not be involved or know someone involved.
Kudos to her. I'm glad that no one was seriously hurt and hopefully the guy can get the help he needs and the girlfriend can see herself away from the situation.
Vitruvius: So the 16MP, 7FPS, with 1.3X crop factor would be almost exactly the same crop and resolution as a Micro 4/3 camera, except slower frame rate than the M43 cameras.
Yes. And if you perfectly align two m4/3 cameras side by side you can kinda start to get to the max capabilities of an APS-C.
Honestly? Is this the argument? That in crop mode another system competes?
Sony stepped well away from the norm in putting this together. I can imagine the specs vs marketing conversation:
"Hey let's include an EVF"
"Too big, forums will hate it"
"Ok, no EVF"
"Forums will hate it"
"What about interchangeable lenses?"
"Will have to be too big for a full frame sensor. The forums will hate it"
"Fixed lens then?"
"With the ISO performance of the sensor, can't we get away with a smaller lens?"
"DOF. Forums will hate it."
"Ok, a bigger large aperture lens then"
Such is marketing life with the internet. No camera can ever be perfect, but I'd say they straddled the line about as well as they could have. That being said, I have handled the camera and I put it down quickly because like a high class prostitute I would love the result of the expense, but really shouldn't.
Heliconius: I would rather buy a prime lens (maybe two?) with an entry-mid level dslr body for the price and keep complaining about the size, weight etc :)
Then buy a prime lens, or maybe two, with an entry-mid level dslr body for the price and keep complaining about the size, weight etc
Let me sum up all of the negative posts:
"OMG I AM SO ANGRY THAT SO MANY LOVE THIS CAMERA"
These forums are a hoot!
d3xmeister: Pixel size does not really matter. You'll see this sensor would be at most on par with 1/2,3 compact cameras, not even close to G series. That's because what matters more is TOTAL light gathered and resolution. Mock my words. That's why a D7000 is not even close to a D800.
Mock your words? LOL
Peiasdf: Wow, check out the DR on the Palestinian photo and the pixel sharpness on the cow race and emperor penguin photos. :D
Well played, sir :)
Those are the shots that aren't taken while everyone argues pixel sharpness and dynamic range.
Excellent photos full of emotion.
maxnimo: Way too slow. Ideal fps would be 300, but 120fps would be a good start.
Not enough. 300,000 frames per second minimum. How could we possible live with less?
I personally find 120 nauseating.
