Zenza R: Only limitation of this camera is the little control over DOF... For now, there is nothing to do about it :/

"Wait another year or two, Sony might put a curved APS-C sensor in that same body ;)"'
You won't see a curved sensor in a zoom camera, it needs a fixed lens to perform correctly.

In reply to:

steelhead3: I am interested in the French culture and how the government standardizes products which make it very difficult to sell on the open market. Will this product be able to with stand the government regulators and make French products (many are quite good) proceed to the open market.

The only industrial standards we have came from Europe, we share them with Germany, U.K... in fact, most of them are worldwide, like ISO's standards.
But yeah, i agree, we have inner standards for wine, cheese and food stuff... but not for cameras, sorry.

Shangri La: Very intriguing product. But I see 2 major things:

- IOS only, no Android?
- SuperRAW mode only works with DXO RAW converters, but not other RAW converters?

Hope other manufacturers will follow suit and mature the concept. Price will go down too.

As said in the article, the raw files include a DNG which can be opened with any digital development program.

Couscousdelight: The best sensor coupled to the worst image compression.
This is stupid, this is Sony.

"...Says the Pentax user with a camera that produces smoothed-over RAW at low resolution...."

?
I've never heard than Pentax smoothed their raw, except for the K5 above 3200 iso.
B.T.W. why "at low resolutions" ?
When Pentax announce Iso 100, it's mesured around 100 iso by DXo, not around 160-200 like Sony or Nikon...
So, i guess you just don't know what you are talking about :)

But hey, if you're happy to shot a camera than can handle a proper comression, good for you.

HubertChen: After reading through the comments I am very amazed. So here we have two parties:

The innovative explorers:
- Hiking 15 days up to 3500 m and work at - 10 °C
- plan, coordinate and execute 70,000 Images
- Create a 365 Giga Pixel Panorama
- Create as a vision of what is possible in Ultra High resolution
- Write a web app and establish a server that can serve such monster picture (sure can not be off the shelf image sharing app)

The Critics
- overlook the accomplishment
- criticize anything

I am not shocked by finding negative comments, but I am shocked that negative comments are the majority.

I am sad for the readers of this web site. It is not the first time here I see innovation met with cynicism. It is likely this will motivate innovators to publish their new stuff elsewhere, making dpreview a less interesting place.

"- criticize anything"
Sorry, but the stitching is poorly made, and the subject is boring( hi-res snow, who cares ?).

A subject with a lot of details, like a cityscape or forest landscape must is more interesting than snow, stone & sky.

Here is the confirmation than sony is still using their crappy lossy compression on the A7rII :

Yep, it's still the lossy compression which is used by the A7RII..

The stitching quality is a shame...
and i don't understand the choice of that subject for such performance, it lacks of details and is too homogenic.

brownie314: I don't know about Canons bodies and sensors, but I love those new small primes. They look great. Nikon should wake up and see what Canon is doing here.

The pentax DA40 was tested by Photozone, it scores 4/5 on imge quality...

IT scores better than the Canon 40mm pancake...
http://www.photozone.de/canon-eos/772-canon_40_28_apsc?start=1

So, aren't you tired to say constant BS ?
B.T.W, the Pentax is full frame compatible, what about the Canon one ?

How to make a best seller camera in 8 lessons :

Use a small and dull viewfinder.
A plastic body.
A sensor who lack behind competition in almost every aspect...
Forget about internal AF adust, even if the camera is prone to it.
Use the famous Canon ergonomy aka "who need a second control dial ?" with a stupid thumb wheel placed too low.
Implant Auto-iso without exposure compensation, i mean, who need that ?
USB2 transfert for24mpxl, in 2015 : a must-have.

(...)but then I look at their lens prices....the 40mm 2.8 DA from Pentax is $550...the canon is $200....auch(...)

550$ for a DA 40 ?
It cost 147$ on Amazon U.S. for a DA40 XS :

Less expensive than the canon one...

In reply to:

T3: The size of the viewfinder is disappointing. It's even smaller than the poor viewfinder in the SL1. Canon basically upgraded the features of the T6 to be more of a mid-level camera, but then downgraded the viewfinder to below that of an entry-level camera. Canon giveth and taketh away!

And meantime, any Pentax DSLR offers a 100% pentaprism VF..
But hey, as far as there is no canikon logo on it, who cares ?

Snapper2013: Another little Canon gem that'll sell like hotcakes!!!

Well, i guess we don't share the same definition about what a "gem" is.
Blurry images, DR still in 2006, no Af adjustments, no exposure compensation in auto Iso mode, dull and small pentamirror viewfinder...
But yeah, it will be sold by entire wagons, by people who just want a Canon logo in front of their camera.
A boring camera, a Canon.

In reply to:

Mssimo: for the price, I would just get the Fuji T10, Pani G7 or the awesome Oly OM5 MK2. Electronic viewfinders are now better than most small penta mirror style optical VF.

So many nice cameras on the market, canon needs to re-invent the rebel line of cameras to keep up. One thing is for sure, they cant keep this basic design and sensor around for another 6 years.

"Pentax can manage a decent 100% pentaprism on even their cheapest DSLR. Why can't Canon do the same with any body cheaper than the 7D II? I can't answer than question."

I can :)
It was explained in "Chasseur d'Images" photo magazine.

Pentax take advantage of the SR system to calibrate the sensor alignement with the VF/AF module, when Canikon need expensive human ressources to do that operation.
So, it doesn't cost much money to Pentax to have a 100% pentaprism in their bodies.

In reply to:

Mike FL: So, K-3.2 uses same sensor as old K3. Well let's see how dated K3 sensor vs Fiji's old/lowest-end Fuji X-A1:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=lowlight&attr13_0=pentax_k3&attr13_1=fujifilm_xa1&attr13_2=fujifilm_xt1&attr13_3=fujifilm_xe2&attr15_0=jpeg&attr15_1=jpeg&attr15_2=jpeg&attr15_3=jpeg&attr16_0=12800&attr16_1=12800&attr16_2=12800&attr16_3=12800&normalization=print&widget=75&x=0.07533055257188802&y=0.512815730723348

Not good.

Who gives a clue about Jpgs ?
If you want to compare, why not the K50 which have the same sensor & resolution than the Fuji, and it's a different story :

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=lowlight&attr13_0=pentax_k3&attr13_1=fujifilm_xa1&attr13_2=pentax_k50&attr13_3=fujifilm_xe2&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=raw&attr15_3=raw&attr16_0=12800&attr16_1=6400&attr16_2=6400&attr16_3=6400&normalization=print&widget=75&x=0.07533055257188802&y=0.512815730723348

AND, the K50 is 12bits only, the K5IIs with a 14bits output will give better results.

In fact, you can compare any 16 Vs 24 Mpxl camera, you'll have the same results you show, it's clueless.
