this is something we all were waiting for
the not so great low light autofocus, non interchangeable focusing screen and no focus peaking are the only problems I see with this camera.
I may not like it's looks, but that's just me.
the title of the article says what's the problem with Sony. they just keep bringing new things every six months n forget what they were selling to us six months ago.
wus: I hope is is not quite correct when DPreview writes above
"All but the Sony mountS will incorporate Sigma’s proprietary Optical Stabilizer (OS) technology to compensate for camera shake. This functionality is omitted from Sony mounts to accommodate for that manufacturer’s in-camera image stabilization system."
because only Sony's A-mount cameras have in-camera stabilizers. The NEX and the new A7 series with the E-mount don't, so if Sigma will really omit the in-lens stabilizer from the E-mount version, too, it will be quite a show stopper.
Anyone on here KNOW any details?
looks like the version for mirrorless will come with different optics and will be a completely different lens.
that may feature in lens stabilisation.
great job Fuji. a really nice way to show the commitment to the costumers.
it isn't ugly enough to be real.more exotic wood and bigger hand grip please.
falconeyes: From the image, the lens would be no more than a 1.8mm aperture. Which is only half the 3.3mm of the Nokia 808's lens, the current smartphone class leader. Therefore, this new device can only capture 1/4 the light of the class leader and won't be that interesting.
you are comparing two cameras with different sensor sizes. so this camera module may have a lesser f number even if the lens is smaller.
for now, all we can do is just speculate.
good news for people looking for used d600. nothing more.
wish they did that for picasa and gmail.
thanks to DPR for sharing the story.
Mssimo: Some info on lens design.
thanks for that link
the 5mp pics look good.
and as a device, it'd have been better if they just kept going with mameo/meego
The collaboration is also due to include'products for the DSLR segment' >>
and that'd be called "SOLAR" and cost 5 times as much.. great.
so it's more of interchangeable/attachable module camera for smartphone than interchangeable lenses for smartphones.
sounds almost like a future generation of devices.
N13L5: I wonder how much Microcruft is paying these companies to crank out new Windphones to rot on store shelves...
there had been some lawsuit with samsung from ms.it was settled with many conditions. one of them was said to be "samsung will put more effort into windows based smart devices"
i don think nikon is going into making phones, unless they pair up with some phone makers. if they do it alone, it's almost sure to be a market failure.
next thing we'll hear about is canon unlocking some one shot hdr by just some firmware updates. Hope that happens. It's not impossible with this dual photodiode pixels.
Will that happen atleast with the next 7d?
Vlad4D: "... it could be the first SLR which genuinely works just as well in live view as it does using the optical viewfinder."
First? Really? For example Sony has it in every camera model for years :)But you right - it is not exactly SLR and VF is not optical :)
that is not slr anyway.
two photo diodes for a single pixel sounds different. wish if that helps to reduce noise too.
