For those who want to use it for long exposures:It's not very useful yet, since it doesn't go over 1/2 s and it doesn't have any self-timer.
good move, Sony!
Interesting interview! Thanks!
I pity anyone calling himself a photographer who didn't have the idea of glasses capturing their view around the time they started.
michi098: The whole concept sounds pretty neat. I would be willing to try one. However, the fact that I can't share my pictures except by going through their website is an absolute no-go. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way?
@CBuff: exactly my point. I don't want some company to possess my pictures.And if they managed to get this camera made, it shouldn't be such a big deal to make an application to refocus.
onix: It irritates me that cameras like these going after enthusiasts lack basic features and settings, such as arbitrary long open shutters and time-lapse photography. Why do I have to buy another ($200) adapter just to automate the shutter for time-lapse.
Also wouldn't it be great if there was an API that let us automate more things on cameras via a computer? Imagine using your camera as a webcam, or recording directly to computer HD if there might be a memory limitation. In my case, I'd like to be able to attach the camera to a telescope and microscope to automate some measurement, e.g. strobe photography.
These things seems so simple, and yet so far from getting any attention.
Maybe I'm the only one... someone please cheer me up.
I would definitely also like having these features.
tlinn: I can totally see myself moving away from my lifelong affiliation with Canon gear after a few more E-mount lenses and another generation or two of this body. I'll have to give up my tilt-shifts but my aching back is telling me it is worth it.
awesome idea, CFynn!
didida do da do da do da: The studio comparison tool says nothing about which lens was used.I'd really like to know that since the samples are much less impressive then 100% RAW crops I found at other websites.
Do you know?
ah, ok, found the little gear wheel symbol
