So the standard mode is hyperfocal as expected and advanced mode is the sloppy auto-focus mode.
ogl: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sonydscr1/R-1 had 24-120/2.8-4.8 with sensor size 21.5 x 14.4 mmG1X has 28-112/2.8-5.8 with sensor size 18.7 x 14 mm
G1X is rather compact camera...but lens is not fast and not wide.
And it doesn't have a leaf shutter!
jorepuusa: Lots of cameras, lots of comments about those cameras.But the main thing is missing. The visual quality of pictures taken by dpreview staffers is bad! Pictures are sadly amateurish, composition is nonexistence and there is no story in the pics.World leading site should have pleasing pictures of people holding cameras but it does not.But neither do other sites. It is a saddening truth that sites writing about cameras use pictures that are of very low visual standard.Now what does this mean?It means that people who write these laughable comments about how wrong tests or roundups are, do not understand about pictures at all cause never are the pictures estimated in these sites. So the only thing that matters are the knobs and pixels and those have nothing to do with pictures.Photography is really dying. This article and its comments are one proof about it.
This site is focused on helping photographers to find the suitable tool, not to teach or inspire photographic work. Pictures without much substance in photographic sense is actually preferred, since interesting photo content will bias the opinion on equipment.
I wonder how much a 13mm F/0.75 will cost.
Prices aren't cheap... Are they going to announce some sub-F/1 primes?
Tim in upstate NY: Somebody tell me why the 45/1.8 is almost as small as the 12/2? The 45/1.8 has a much longer focal length and is faster but not significantly larger - I don't get it.
On SLR: 24/1.4 is larger than 50/1.4
Alex Panoiu: From page 60 of the thesis (http://www.lytro.com/renng-thesis.pdf) I understand that if each microlens covers m x m pixels and the image was taken at f/N then the image can be refocused anywhere in the depth of field of f/(N x m). For example, the image taken at f/4 and each microlens covers 8x8 pixels then the image can be refocused anywhere in the depth of field of f/32. This also means that spatial resolution is reduced by a factor of 256, say from 256 megapixels to 1 megapixel.
The tradeoff is that for each factor of 2 of loss in spatial resolution the "potential" depth of field increase corresponds with one step of aperture.
256? or 64?
are these dead hamsters?
