That is a great shot!
overall image quality is gar-bage. Toys at best.
Scott Greiff: A review of another Samsung camera, but still no Sigma review since the release of the SD1 two years ago?
maksa: Sigma has discontinued 50-150mm F2.8 OS. The next step we are waiting is to announce 50-150mm F2.8 III. 800 grams, 140 mm, stabilized with Pentax and Sony DSLRs.
OK, let’s it would called 50-150mm DC APO OS HSM Art.
The exixitng sigma 50-150 is for crop sensors I believe.
nice review....It'd be nice if DPReview made a couple of raws available so folks could play with the sharpening/contrast/CA removal/whadever to do some personal evaluation.
Rage Joe: After years of dealing with digital images I have come to the conclusion that dynamic range of the sensor might be the most important thing affecting IQ. It affects every lens you use.
Lacking DR makes life difficult. Number of megapixels/ sharpness and high ISO is good enough with most of the sensors/ and lenses. Of course color depth is important too, but when lacking it is not as obvious as lacking DR.
I love DR :)
I agree for the most part, but I'd really like to see some one tame the harsh clipping in blown highlights. A smooth roll off like film when shooting a sunrise or sunset is something that is severely missing with modern sensors, even medium format. The "nuclear explosion" mayhem with digital cameras in those situations is abysmal. Most who don't know the difference have accepted it as normal, which I find unfortunate.
dark blue on black is bad for the smaller text. I like the current color scheme. Making changes for the sake of change is not necessarily a good thing. Improve the current behind the scenes functionality ( site lockups, photo uploads etc.)
user rankings can wreak havoc, some thrive on this and this alone, and not at all necessary to the core purpose of the site (which hopefully is not just to make money, but to provide a service that is in demand, and also generates revenue.)
peevee1: What are these unnatural yellow colors?
curious about that also.......Nikon color is "One" of the issues that is keeping me from buying the D800.
which has the most accurate color?
KimPortugal: As long as they insist on producing cameras without a proper viewfinder they won't have me as a costumer. Put a photographer ahead of design department please. Leave microwave designers to do what they are good at...
fwiw, seems like around half the preview images have blown highlights.......are these in-camera jpgs or from raw?
Looking for a decent small camera for travel.
An Excellent capture of such a serene and peaceful place......music for my eyes
A magnificant photo.....the thought running through my mind as I look at it: "what life should be like for all of us".......I'm in love with this image, and all that it represents.
That is a great photo..............
Exquisite shot Rick, patience is a virture eh?
