Just a Photographer: Meaby it would be better if Queen Elisabeth accepts the fact that the UK isn't a worldpower anymore and that the days of colonization are over....
When it comes down to these pictures better to be humble then to show off, of how it once was...
The old pillars are still there. Just hidden from the rebellious crowds.Leased freedom...
Someone should stay true to their name and don't think to much about world order.Or maybe look up founding contracts of your own country and who authorized signed the lease on it.
Nothing in this world is simple, I am afraid. But life is to short.
Gunnlaugur Gudmundsson: Bad photos, the first one shows a definite softness in the corners, photo nr 5, blown highlights, my Gawd ... and, what's totally unacceptable, sharpness across the frame is absent in all of them!
Why on earth post this crap?
Joking of course ... ;-)
They look more like drawings than photos.Are those taken with PaperCamera Android app?
I mean Instagram sure doesnt have filter this bad!
AV Janus: Why is it so expensive?Just because it is from a video gear brand or is there some advanced super feature?
Camera specs are P&S at best. Is it non interchangeable= Not very user, and future, feature proof thinking.
Can't wait these go even more mainstream and more long distance capable and kids start to go drone hunting for fun...
Thanks for the repl. I am not a drone or video guy so I apreciate the insight.I was just surprised a bit cause I know there is 1001 and one option for drone videography.If you want a prepackaged product with video background company I guess it makes more sense.
It just surprises me how expensive all the video gear is. Even the simple rails cost hundreds.American and EU companies...
Wonder if the Chinese make their own stuff, or buy the overpriced US-EU gear.
This is a shadow pushed version of the previous sample for those that dont get why there is so much noise on low ISO.
Very good results!
Good sample to show shadow pushing.Thanks!Good result on the next page to.
Have you guys try the x265 codec video?What bitrat does it do under 1080p and 4K ?
They could have taken the Sony guts and put it in fake classic wooden camera case and it would have sold better that these cheap tricks.People of today know better than to buy italian design, hidden under obvious Fiat parts ina Ferrari type of deal...
At this resolution and f2.8 even a front faced portrait loses sharpness on one eyeI guess that would make new portrait aperture f4, f5.6 on FF
JoEick: These photos look lifeless and nothing special (not photographer's fault, he's good!). At least to my eyes.
When I get around to reading the spec sheet and DXO scores they should look a lot better after that.
LOL!I see what you did there! :-P
I can already see it being done in 8K.Why?
Because we can finally get over the limitation of a single focal length of our eyes.Put on your 2k VR goggles, put the 360deg camera cap on and use eye gestures to zoom around.Identifying what you see in real time and translating text to!
Oh what joy!
And I thought shooting through the bottom of a beer glass was stupid!hahaha!
Congratulations!Cool under water shot. I guess thats what it is. :-)

AV Janus: Wait, Nikon DSLRs do video now?
I have just up myself because of my good irony post!
AV Janus: So all in all you bay 42.000 for service disassembly, cleaning, some polishing and for less than 1g or $40 worth of gold. Those are some margins! :-)
That is some business plan! Must be that top bank managers are doing the polishing and plating for that kind of work price!
And they plan on making "just" 77 of them LOL! Why did't I think of that!
Just like Gold sh+t Dorodango!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorodango
shhh... just dont tell Nikon...

Sir Nick of High Point: Dof scale looks off
Nobody will notice...LOL!
Sirandar: I also checked out the similar legacy lenses from the 70s and 80s. They were beautiful creations but the images were nothing special .....
They were not sharp as the midrange m43 lenses I had and the contrast was sometimes good sometimes poor and the colours were mostly washed out. It is very hard to fix washed out colours convincingly in Photoshop.
They were dirt cheap and I still didn't buy them.
Nothing even cane close to my 45mm Oly Prime in any aspect let alone all three.
I also found a new respect for my cheap Oly 40-150. My copy is pretty darned good for any price. If only it was faster .....
You can't judge a lens much by how it looks or what is made of, or a red dot.
You judge it by the images and how easy it is to use.
My money would be on that it isn't worth 359$ as that is about what I paid for my Oly 45mm prime but we will see.
I understand where you are coming from.I tried more than a few old lenses on m43. they are interesting and fun to use. However when push comes to shove I now know that i want AF in lenses i need to perform on demand and at short notice.I can see myself trying this lens if the reviews are favorable, but I believe that i should finally buy that 45m f1.8 that it is always next on my list until something silly skips in front of it!
I am aslo glad that it s built with m43 in mind (42.5mm) but that it covers APS-C. That will give better results on m43 and it will have a ropper angle of view.For a change APS-C is just an added bonus. Unlike Sigmas offerings.
Must be a dull day in DPR office...
