Huds: While everyone is bleating "No Raw?"
I'm goin' "No Hotshoe??" .. "No manual zoom??"

Well, a flash that works at 20 miles might look like a searchlight. Forget the hotshoe. Just mount the camera onto the Klieg.

grasscatcher: So, in their promo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8Ece4w3xx0 they show some decent (for a 1/2.33) pics shot with this cam, even up to 8000mm. They even shot some surfer action (reminded me of DPReview's A6000 hands-on vid). It would be nice to know what their keeper rate is/was! :þ

8000mm? 4x extender on the filter ring?

MediaDigitalVideo: Anyone knows there's a audio line-in (stereo) ?

With a 20 mile cable?

mpgxsvcd: I would be willing to bet that no one is ever able to take a truly good picture with this camera at the 35mm equivalent of 2000mm.

My 8 inch F4.0 telescope gives me the 35mm equivalent of 1600mm. That perfectly fills a 16:9 aspect ratio with the moon. However, it has to be on a tracking mount in order to follow the moon’s motion at this focal length. Therefore, it is unrealistic to think that you are going to get great images or even videos of objects in space while hand holding this camera or if it is on a non-tracking tripod mount.

The lack of RAW is a good indication that these images are useless without massive in camera distortion correction. Even with the correction they are probably still close to useless. That is a tiny sensor with a ridiculous zoom range.

This camera would have been so much better if they just gave it a 25x zoom and a faster aperture instead.

I'm thinking some of you guys are not the target audience.

Birddogman: Thanks again.

The color version looks like this (not sure how to post pics in a reply, so this is a link):

I'm not a B&W worshipper, but for this image, I much prefer the B&W version.

The sky just is what it is - here are a few other pics shot that same day afield thaat might give a feel fro what the sky looked like:

Best!

Greg, Chase and Joy

I agree, the black and white is better than the color.

I asked about the sky because it looks like it was cloned in places in order to cover high tension wires.

Daniel L: There's nothing special about pay to get in, pay to get more "ray of light" and pay more to do more, again and again photo.... especially on a scene that never changed - That's Antelope Canyon for people that never been there before. Everyone has to pay to get the picture, you just have to go at the right time of the year.

Nothing more than joining a photograph-tour shooting on a rare captive snow leopard in a zoo.

@WellyNZ - lol!
