Panasonic : can we have the serial number printed on again under warranty?

Torsten Hoff: >> as long as you retain proof of purchase and the label from the camera box that states the serial number.

So if the camera was a gift or you already threw out the box, you're screwed? Sorry Panasonic, not good enough.

Simple, if you have proof of purchase, Panasonic should be honouring first year warranty without considering serial numbers, as is done with many machines. Any other attitude would be illegal.

Le Kilt: Gosh, remember, all compacts cameras are mirrorless. Now some have interchangeable lenses. And some are getting great sensors. Convergence ? The question is do you want TTL optical viewfinder, even if it means more bulk. All the rest is... yawn...

P.S. Please Sony, bring out an SLR version of the Sony A7RII AF compatible with Canon lenses!

Hi Richard,
Sorry, I was probably being a bit rude ;-) and the naming of the MILCs was indeed a problem (I remember the survey here for a sensible name!).
I suppose to me (shooting mostly with Canon DSLRs) the viewfinder remains a very important aspect, at least with an SLR you know you've got one, with half the MILCs you don't, so I wouldn't put them in the same basket, but that's me... :-)

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review preview (839 comments in total)

Good camera.

Very disappointed not to see an intervalometer included in the firmware.

Interesting smartphone type apps feature - you connect the camera directly to the internet using its Wifi, then (using a PlayMemories account you've set up) you can see and download new apps to the camera.
Not many yet, but a handfull of free ones.

BUT 9.99 € for an intervalometer app (albeit a good one), I feel a bit ripped off.

Sony :
- Please add the option not to turn the camera off when pushing the viewfinder back down.
- Please include an intervalometer in the firmware, or provide a free one in the apps.

But nice camera.

How annoying and distracting, the photos scrolling up or down... :-(

Seems a little HDR over-processed, but a great pic !

Could do with a little extra width (not easy if you haven't the lens with you!) but a high class photo :-)

In reply to:

Biowizard: "... located to the *left* of the lens mount. Also on the *left* is a full-sized HDMI ..."

That's a very "selfie" oriented decription! With the camera pointing at a subject other than oneself, I'd say those buttons and the data ports are on the RIGHT hand side of the camera! Just as I think of the shutter release on my DSLR as being on the right hand end of the top-plate!

Brian

EDIT: Indeed, as in your OM-D E-M10 review: "The camera's ports (a micro-HDMI socket and combined USB/AV output) move to the *right* flank" ... same (relative) location as those sockets on the Blackmagic!

Then again, when you're describing a pic just above the text, and it says "on the left ot the mount" which is staring you in the face, I'm sure not many struggled to follow the description ;-)

On Lytro sheds jobs as it shifts focus to video article (506 comments in total)
In reply to:

grasscatcher: I have to wonder, with the improved processing speed of modern cameras (e.g. - 30fps @ 8mpxl), could systems be developed for focus bracketing, much like what is done for exposure bracketing? Thirty pics taken, each with focus pulled in a bit from the previous exposure, then a final processed pic with relatively infinite focus (algorithm could be developed to focus from, say, 30' to 3' based on x focal length, 50' to 5' for a longer focal length, etc. to more accurately capture moving subjects, plus a setting of 1' to infinity for landscape still photos...).

This would be a great boon for those of us who require maximum DoF for certain photographic applications.

Oh dear, you have struggled badly with anything ambiguous.
Never mind, don't answer the question if that makes you feel better.

In reply to:

tulku: I'm a little bit over the narrow mindset that appears to be a common thread amongst antagonists of the Lytro or Lightfield technology. I keep reading comments that photographers know what they want in focus and it's just a camera for bad photographers and the resolution is too low.

You cannot really hide things in a lightfield image, so as a photographer you have to be aware of the entire image that is being created. It's not about missing a shot and focusing later, rather, it's about taking time to really compose an image that can be explored by the viewer. I would have thought this factor would be intriguing to many photographers.

As for resolution, maybe it's not up there yet, but then again it's not really an image style for printing. Last time I checked I could not interact with a printed image and change focal points, or move around within the image like I can with a Lytro image.

Anyway just some thoughts.

The "folder" is an album, as the line "This photo is in 1 album:" hints at! Difficult to grasp?

BTW I have made no changes to my gallery apart from loading a new image. It is one of my gallery on the DPR site, I hope you don't consider that as theft or fraud?

You're really struggling to understand a simple concept of a gallery with photos and albums. How on earth do all the simple users on DPR manage it???
