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.
HubertChen: Asking the dpReview community to be nice:
I was very sad that for a long time I have not really seen a dpreview staff participate in discussions in comments. Now one reviewer did. And what happened to him?
* He is greeted with cynicism* It is suggested he is part of a conspiracy against Pentax* Bad intentions are suggested in many occasions
No surprise dpReview staff was not really present in comments and maybe after today will not be again.
I am not asking you to agree. I am asking you to write politely and accurately when you disagree. Always believe the Author has good intention and never suggest otherwise. If you believe you found a mistake or misjudgment by the Author, point it out and provide fact or reasoning why this shall be a mistake / misjudgment.
Following these rules will turn this place to be much more pleasurable and will attract more competent and more knowledgeable posters too. So you will be rewarded with more information in comments and more joy reading them
Thanks Shawn! Found a couple. Seems like chroma noise is kept quite well in control, but micro details seem to vanish at the same time.
vodanh1982: I don't see any low light AF/accuracy tests. The different between K-5 and K-5II(s) is concentrated on new AF sensor.
I agree. The sample gallery does not have high-ISO images.
JKP: I guess I'm just being picky, but after watching videos from EOS SLRs tweaked with ML-firmware, these look blocky and lacking of fine details. Especially the 1st video was suspiciously coarse, even at 1080p. Something wrong maybe?
My point was that the videos are nothing special compared to other mobile phones.
