PandaSA: the next one is NEO.

I thought people wouldn't find out that I'm preparing a new camera. Damn!

They call me Hans: "I'm an artist, therefore I can charge thousands of dollars for my DIY project."

What bugs me is "Why didn't *I* have this idea first?" I'd even be happy with half of the price!

aris14: Αt the bdsm (before developing social media) times we all wanted small cellphones.
Then came the smartphones and we all got some plates to serve coffee with which we can make a phone call.
Phones had a decent camera 3 to 5 Mp and then up to 8 Mp quite capable for an sm post, allowing an acceptable A4 print even for mags.
It seems they follow the same curve as ultra compacts some 5-5 years ago with a tiny sensor and a zillion Mps.
There is no reason to have zillion Mps for sm nor bigger sensors. There is no need for that except for companies marketeers just for selling phones. Nothing but with that if their phones were good enough to last 2 days heavy use.

@cinesmascope - Now, THAT'S some hardcore s**t!!!

BDSM for Before Developing Social Media goes as good as M_I_L_F for Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Format.

In reply to:

maksa: GPS is a great addition, but I wonder, why I need Wi-Fi? It is useful only for studio work. If someone needs remote control, he/she can take Flucard.

@ badi - Yes, without a doubt when shooting in a studio (indoors or even outdoors) wi-fi will also be very useful!

But I was just referring to those other professionals that do not do tethered shooting and fill their cards with many GBs of pictures. For them a "normal" transfer via card-reader will be much faster so the lack of wi-fi isn't soooooo bad.

Still, even for my un-professional, amateurish shooting, I'd like to have in-built wifi to transfer my photos more easily. Specially when I take only a bunch of pictures.

In reply to:

Stollen1234: hmm i thought Sony has the best sensors on the market?? then why this new camera is getting only 80%??!!

haha funny Sony

@ hippo84 - Of course there are a lot of other things that one should take into account when looking for/using/reviewing a camera. Most of sensors today are "good enough" (even Canon ones, to be fair) so camera makers have to concentrate on a lot of other features, like the ones you mentioned.

But I've only talked about the sensor because the OP attacked Sony's sensors as being cr*p, which is not the case.

You didn't bother reading ANYthing of the review, did you? If you had, you would've seen that the A77 loses about half stop of light due the translucent mirror. So, it's not a matter of the sensor being good or not.

I guess for professional work, when you take hundreds or even thousands of photos, the wi-fi isn't so useful (transferring files via card-reader would be faster).

BUT, let's say you've just taken a dozen pictures, while you were having a walk, and want to quickly transfer them to your PC. Then in-built wi-fi would be very useful.

In the end, it's better to have an option and NOT use it than not having it at all :)

In reply to:

neo_nights: [OFF-TOPIC]
@Lars (or anyone else at DPReview) - Few weeks ago I've looked up for any info about a successor for the Lumia 1020 and, apparently, Microsoft will abandon the "big sensor" route because it was a niche market and Microsoft realised that it'd be better for them to do just like everyone else.

Do you have any info on that?

"Niche products that only appeal to a small number of users and are expensive will always be a difficult sell internally I think."

Yes, absolutely!

But I still think that the major problem with the Pureviews 808 and 1020 wasn't being a niche product, but the hardware itself.

Like I said on my previous post, both had an inferior hardware compared to its peers. In the case of the 808 it was even worse because it came with Symbian, that was nearly dead already.
If it had come with Android (or even Windows Phone) I guess the acceptance would've been better.

I don't know, I think that MS should at least try one last time. Specially now that WP is maturing, Win10 is coming up, MS has more re$ource$ than Nokia had and can use a better hardware and so on.

Well, let's keep our fingers crossed :)

@ Lars - Thanks for your reply! :)

As for the Lumia people's comment: well... yeah! If you use a single-core processor (808) when everyone else is using dual-core and then use dual-core processors (1020) when everyone else is using quad-core --and some flirting with octa-cores, of course the speed of your phone will be lacking!

But nowadays, with quad-core processors and RAM getting cheaper, I think that a 1030 wouldn't be so slow as the current 1020.

I could seriously consider the Panasonic CM1 if it wasn't for the Android...

In reply to:

Mister Roboto: I would rather have a larger sensor at least 2/3 or 1 inch than invest on any lens which in the end will produce mediocre result.

I think it can produce some decent results. But it will be, let's say, different from those results from a bigger sensor.

Unfortunately there's this "MAKE IT THINNER!!!" syndrome going on, so the chances to see smartphones with big sensor (even a 1/1.7" would be nice!) are very small.

AlexisH: My 3 line summary of the interview:

"Thank you very much for your idea!!
We will explore the possibility in the future.
We’ll ensure the best product mix to meet the wide range of customer needs."

They were polite and they deflected all interesting questions into explanations about how great their current product line is. The only time they provided answers was when they could talk about the improvements in their products. I liked the bit about the ISO 200 of the D810A.

Apart from admitting the issues with the D600 and D750, all the rest was pretty much like AlexisH summed up.

@ Rishi Sanyal - So, FWIW, they did reflect all the questions.

They may have told YOU (and you, of course, can't say because of agreements and such). But for US, the general public, this interview and nothing is nearly the same thing.

I'm not blaming you, guys, rest assured. You've made all the questions you had to ask, even insisted on some, but the responses of all those reps were very disappointing!

T-Rexes had small arms and we could say they were banned. Maybe that was the reason?
