smafdy: Drop the price down to compete with the Pentax k-3, and I'll buy two. I already have plenty o' old Nikon glass lying around.
I'm a Pentax user myself... but... come on!The K-3 is one year old and is APS-C, you really can't compare those two, or expect such a price drop.
If this was an unsuccesful product, then I could expect a price drop, but not in this state of things.
Prescription: double dose of Realism (TM) - unless you were being sarcastic, that is... ;)
Howard Moftich: this would have been oh so useful about a month or so ago. Really? Wait until barely a week beforehand?
...then there's always Easter! ;)
Samuel Dilworth: It sometimes feels like a full-time job keeping on top of Adobe software. The update process is byzantine and the documentation is vast, sloppy, self-contradictory, and hard to find.
A case in point:
“The new features listed in the release notes are only available in Photoshop CC.”
Has anyone figured out what these features are?
That's a standard advisory.Since there aren't new features here, it doesn't apply.It's only ctrl+c, ctrl+v laziness...
bluevellet: Hopefully, proper animated GIF viewing this time around.
I can't believe no matter the version, no matter the computer, no matter the windows OS, it still has buggy GIF playback.
Add to that MPEG2 support under x64 systems...It's available under x86 but it's been lacking in 64-bit OSes since what, four versions?
leblase: This seems like a very disappointing camera: I find the quality of the pictures displayed pretty lousy, lacking sharpness and detail. It also seems either the machinery or the lenses provide quite a poor color separation ability.Really, quite a surprise, as I was hoping for something better or at the least more mature.I do not see anything in it that gives sense to the medium format advantages, and many of its inconveniences.All in all (except for the price), when compared to the Blad, it's really not a good deal.As pointed by the authors one really has to wait for someone to come up with a better proposition
To those who have weighed down a tripod:a lower position for the weight shouldn't be preferable?As in: hanging from a hook opposed to on top of the legs?
atamola: oh my...the number one feature in the A7 II for 90% of potential buyers/switchers/upgraders is the IBIS claiming 4.5 stops... and yet, the geniuses with the camera did not even try to go below the 1/focal length rule
@rrccadE mount lens with OSS (Optical Steady Shot):lens stabilizes the Pitch and Yaw axes, the body takes care of Roll, X and Y.So it's actually a synergy.
Edit: what EinsteinsGhost said.
Seriously, would that claimed 4.5 figure mean that you could theoretically shoot a 200mm at less than 1/12 and get away with it?What would the keeper rate be? :-|
To all the selfie people (and camera manufacturers...):Very ancient Nokia phones had a sort of round plastic mirror on the front, near the camera...I'm not saying that it's a high-tech solution, or that it is kickstarter material, but at least it's an easy, cheap and quick fix...
Paul Guba: That is to bad. Hard to compete with the Chinese manufacturers.
Hardly any of them work as P-TTL flashes with Pentax.Metz is still one of the best and most purchased in that field.
Thomas Traub: That's very sad ...... another european manufacturer is gone ..
... the real reason is, that the customers (HE GUYS, THIS ARE WE) are not ready to pay good money for good quality....
I hope to be able to catch one of the last 52 AF 2 for my D610 instead of my old SB 800 that is gone a few days ago (to complete my two Metz AF 50)
The issue is mainly with the TV division, as pointed out ad nauseam...
Robert F. Tobler: My standing complaint: missing support for the Sigma Merrill cameras. This is supremely annoying, especially since a small outfit like Irident Digital manages to support these cameras. SHAME ON YOU ADOBE!
A pity it's Mac only, looks like it's a very capable piece of software.
chrisnfolsom: With only 1" separation would that not reduce the stereo effect at distance? I usually us about 2.5" past 20". Anyway, will be nice to see, and I am sure without stereo the stitched images will look great. Now they just need to get the dynamic range up....
Mmmh... you might be right...
1" separation /and/ a 45° angle...
Wow, so much hate without even having tried one, or seen some pics...
Sometimes I think I'm stupid because everybody else must be a real genius to be able to judge a product without having even seen it...
When something goes bad, just put the blame on someone...
There's plenty of delusional people here that can't seem to understand that the "facility" - if it ever existed - only did what it was asked to by the company.
I'd fire the management instead... but, oh right! Italians are all scammers, so it must be /their/ fault!!!Please...
Just a Photographer: I thought this format is as dead as a dodo.
The only camera that uses this format is the D4.
You really have problems...And then you start calling names because your argument is flawed.I know exaclty what every single thing I named is.they could have used mp3 in minidiscs, but decided to create a proprietary compression, probably because they could tout it as advanced on their leaflets.They're headstrong, they don't care for the end user, and if you buy Sony I'm sure you'll be left in the weeds sooner rather that later.There are many other brands who do the exact opposite.
Many modes (illustrated in video sample)... looks a little more than a one-trick-pony... nice!
Nope, like Betamax, Video8, DAT, minidisc, atrac, Memorystick, UMD...Shall I continue?
