  • "if you really want to know, how much DR you can get out REALLY from the RAW file of your cam, use originalraw with original setting or
    "dcraw -v -h -w -T -W"

    Sounds like the height of...

  • Yeah, wouldn't it be great to have a 4:3 or 1:1 (30.5 x 30.5!) FF sensor that used the same old lenses?

  • Pretty much. Though there's not usually a whole lot of reason to faff around with grad ND filters and their issues with uneven horizons when you can just do an 5-EV bracket and merge to HDR.

  • Somewhat ironic that you call APS-C cameras toys, but use a 3 year old SLT FF camera with ISO performance and dynamic range...almost exactly the same as a APS-C...

  • Yep, exactly. Since an Voigtlander 25mm f0.95 lens has the same physical aperture size as a 50mm f1.9 lens, it passes the same amount of total light despite shining on a sensor 1/4 the size. Hence,...

  • Yeah, unless you need a few very specific video features, the FZ1000 sounds like the winner in most respects.

    The XC10 already sounds like a B-cam, and when you're asking $2500 for a B-cam...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    Olympus and Panasonic (GX7) IBIS systems already allow off-axis stabilization for panning.

  • I'll definitely be getting it. Improving the workflow with panoramas and HDR is worth the money all by itself. Sure, it would be nice if they had made some improvements to the RAW conversion engine...

  • The X-Trans array is more liability than benefit, in my opinion. Obviously others will disagree, but it doesn't appear to have any benefits at all over a conventional 24MP Bayer like the A6000....

  • It's not something I'd personally be in the market for, but at least it's not a one-tricky pony. It's got the soft-focus look (which actually comes across pretty well in these samples), but does...

  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    Anyway, if we're having this discussion about "air" and non-tangibles, you might as well just move straight on to medium format and call it a day. Or are you just a pixel peeper and not a...

  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    That's only because it's harder (or impossible) to find an equivalent lens to a 24-60mm f1.4 on small formats. You'd need a better than f1.0 lens on APS-C, and they aren't that common.

    Larger...

  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    Out of curiosity, Zerixos, since you are using different models for your comparison...

    Are you suggesting that in order to have a better camera than the NX1, one should buy:

    1) An A7r for...

    And get what advantages, exactly?

    Higher resolution? Nope.
    Faster focus? Nope.
    Better video? Nope.
    Faster lenses or shallower DoF? Nope. Even with equivalence, the 16-50 f2-2.8 is faster than the...

  • Well, there's always the Panasonic 14-140mm 3.5-5.6 on a GH4 for about the same price. No power zoom, though, I guess.

  • Isn't this a pretty direct FZ1000 competitor? Similar features, worse lens, better video bitrate?

  • Doh.

    Well, shame on me.

  • I actually think this is a really neat idea - a higher quality camera based around commodity instant film. Like an el-cheapo 6x7 MF.

    It's a shame that it doesn't appear to offer much technical...
