So A1 is a tad sharper, while "X-trans" M1 yields a bit less noise at ISO 6400. In addition, X-trans avoids moire in RAW, as seen in the three text samples.
Canon 6D looks pretty good, better than I though. It's almost on the level of Sony's FF sensors found in Sony and Nikon cameras. Maybe my good old 20D has time to go.
Now, if those aperture plates would be programmable high resolution LDC-displays that would let the light through only in those areas you want.
Via Wi-Fi/Blutooth, you could alter the aperture shape on the fly, for example by you mobile phone or by some sort of Magic Lantern tweak.
S2LPi: I really enjoyed watching and participating in this challenge. Congratulations to those with the top photos.
I am having trouble understanding how it is that every entry seems to garner low ratings from at least a few people. Can our opinions about images and what makes them good be so divergent that what looks like a great shot to most gets a "1 star" from someone? I'm a little baffled, but I'm new here - I'm sure this has all been hashed out already.
I'm not complaining - the rating system for determining "placement" is nicely effective in "washing out" the incongruous ratings - just wondering about the "curiosities" in the data.
Maybe 10% lowest and 10% highest votes should be discarded, just like it is done is some sports.
The collection is missing the photo of Costa Concordia.
japjit100: I m very impressed with 20.7 mp camera qaulity
Had to create a new account today just to say that?
Anyways, to me the quality seems okay. Nothing special really. The pics are not very sharp for some reason.
tech_head: Actually Canon does not license it's lens protocol, don't know about the rest. If you buy a third party lens, there is a chance that with a firmware change that lens may not work.
I tossed (sold) a bunch of Sigma lenses when I got my 50D then 7D.Sigma and the others actually need this. I've decided to buy only Canon glass for this reason.
No matter how much Tamron, Sigma, etc promise; they can be made obsolete with a firmware change.
I think Sigma does such service without charge if needed. At least years back when I bought EOS 20D, Sigma service changed the internal parts of an old Sigma lens of mine to work with the camera for free.
JKP: Looks quite interesting. Low noise, even if sharpness is brought to the same level as competition by unsharp mask:
Chroma noise is almost absent.
Well, whatever it is, it does reveal some crispness that is buried under Fuji-fog. Here, X100S has been contrast enhanced and US 0.1/~50% in PhotoScape. Other cameras have been kept untouched.

JKP: At full resolution, looks definitely to be more sharp than the the second best, Samsung S4. Scaled down to about same size as S4 and contrast & sharpness adjusted to match:
The extreme corners are softer, but overall 38MP image is much sharper than S4.
If I buy this phone, I'll shoot at full resolution anyways and do the post processing on desktop, so 5MP doesn't matter.
For casual Facebook-shooting any phone camera is just fine. Instagram filters will blur corners anyways.

Nice concept, expect I would always forget the lens/CMOS part home.
I see reduced contrast, for example on the two the exhaust pipes.
Wanted to change my account email address, because the old is from my previous work place and thus inaccessible. It seems now that it is impossible to do that without creating a new account alltogether... :(
Similar performance boost was recently observed by using MoS2 instead of silicon:
So this camera will have lowest ISO of 12 or what..
Diving bird captures flying fish :) Nice shot.
gdfthr73: I can see a Canon copyright infringement claim coming.
Nokia must have checked that out. I do agree 'EOS' word reminds Canon brand too much.
If it turns out to be what is suspected, I may switch from my Note-I to this one. What I would not like is the absense of µSD memory slot as some rumors are telling.
Lawrencew: great idea.But having the camera centred in the pod would be even better in terms of the capturing a 'true' panorama. Especially a 360 view.Perhaps an adjustable plate that can be put in the slot, and then used to centre the sensor of the imaging device.
Is the motor powerful enough to rotate a prosumer DSLR? Seems like it from the video. But what is the limit.
But either way, at a sensible price, I could see me buying one.
I agree. Placing the system on a slightly uneven stone like in the video and mass center changing while rotating, the whole thing may flip over.
