pascal b: Waow, from what I know, the first brand who has the audacity to propose a 6:7 aspect ratio! (even if just in JPEG).

The Kalpanika converter can do so also. Please, stay tuned.

@HowaboutRAW - It has been showed again and again - The 645 show more detail than the Merrill and the Quattro. Then it is a matter of taste which one you like the best. But the detail race wins the Pentax. Also the D800 has more resolution, at least than the Merrill. I am not sure about the Quattro. But, that Quattro should have visible more detail than the D800 would surprise me greatly.

That said - all those cameras are pretty impressive.

xeriwthe: most logical elegant design ever conceived by man

My main gripe with the quattro is that I cannot see what is on the LCD when it is bright outside.

It would be fun to see a picture of a photographer having all four hanging around the neck. :)

The multitude of JPEG outputs are for convenience only. If you like square, set it to 1:1 and shoot away. The JPEG will be 1:1, but if you also store the RAW, that one will show the uncropped image without any scaling. It is the same as setting e.g. monochrome. Then the JPEG is monochrome, but the RAW still contains the same RAW data, i.e. color.

Papi61: What's the target clientele for this product? It's definitely not a travel camera. And let me get this right, you'd have to buy FOUR CAMERAS AND A TELECONVERTER to have multiple focal lengths?

Am I the only one who believes all of this makes absolutely no sense?

@Scottely - som years back they invented the zoom lens :)

That aside, I really think this DP0Q is intriguing. If you have the time and a tripod, you can take superior super wide angle images. If the lens is what they promise, of course.

I live in Stockholm, and I can imagine many a summer mornings walking around in an empty city taking images with my tripod and ultra wide angle.

dash2k8: I don't understand the hate for this thing. Scrolling through the comments, the majority of comments have condemned this as a tool that props egos and fuels self-esteem. Never have I seen the word "narcissist" appear so many times in one place. If you don't like this, get a Phantom and your problems are solved.

Yes it is fun. Yes it is ego.

BTW - how long do the batteries last? Any kind of fun also stops when the bot stops.

BTW - waterproof down to 1 meter? Can it swim?

I looked really hard for that switch, then found it on the left. ;-)

Maybe the article author have memory?

Or maybe they looked from the front when writing the article.

Roland Karlsson: If the Apple photo repository might be destroyed by reading an incompatible file, then Apple photo repository is broken. No matter how bad files Leica Monochrome makes.

Yes, it seems like the Apple warning is a bit exaggerated. But still, the app shall not crash or run cyclic if an input file is faulty.

The faulty data in the Leica file is a Leica issue.

The crashing behaviour of the Apple program is an Apple issue.

Both need fixing.

he he - you are a strange man Mr Bug :) So - please show me a non SLR camera that needs a circular polarize.

Shutter Bug, I am not sure you read my post correctly. I think I said the same thing, more or less :)

A circular and a linear polarizer have exactly the same effect on the image. The only difference is that the light has circular polarisation when leaving the filter and then hitting the sensor. The only reason to use a circular polarizer is if you use an SLR camera.

On Canon EOS 5DS R added to studio test scene comparison article (518 comments in total)

I am a little surprised over all posts that are surprised the Canon can "squeeze" 50 MP into FF. There do exist 24 MP APS-C, even 28 MP, and FF is twice the area of APS-C. Why call it "squeeze"?

AbrasiveReducer: It's the old story. Go with what you know. They can buy movie studios and camera companies but what they know is electronics.

The response that Sony only knows electronics seems more emotional than fact based.
