MartinsB: DP, why do you write "which covers an effective focal length range of 210-600mm" using "effective" instead of "equivalent"?
mmm... I think you are right, "Effective" is for the pixels on the sensor.
You shot the Gold Award.. so cool
They should sell this technology to Samsung and do an exit, plain and simple
D1N0: I immediately started to breathe like Darth Vader, when i saw this.
I immediately stop breathing when I saw this :)
photolando: Next item? The HackxTack Finder. In case you lose your HackxTack. Which is probably sitting right next to your lens cap. Ha!
I think that it's not necessary and people here gave good arguments. Having said that, I think that some people will buy it because they like buying accessories for their camera, and I think that it looks pretty prestige, something that will lead to more sales.
Amazing! (pic 6. looks like a turtle :) )
straylightrun: The Samsung 17mm 1.8 looks promising. Not only is it smaller than the Nikon 18/1.8, but it also has IS.
Here is a size comparison vs RX100, you can compare vs other cameras as well: http://j.mp/1nCYr9o
Ocolon: Ergonomics could be nice, BUT can you still call this a compact camera? It’s even wider than a Nikon D4. For me, its size puts it in a different class than fixed lens compacts such as Ricoh GR, Nikon Coolpix A or even Fuji X100, Sony RX1 and the earlier Sigma DP cameras.
Indeed narrower: http://j.mp/1dBT7YV
Tandua: yes, it's the true...for decrease
but worldwide shipments of DSLR and MR like cameras present big differences
DLSR selling growth up (a lot )!!Mirrorless selling growth down
the mirrorless hype is it over?
see graphs here
I think the reson for that is that most people prefer shooting with mobile phone cameras. When new phone cameras will come with 1/1.5" or eve larger sensor with soem type of flexible lens zooming mechanism, many people won't even bother with CSC. Professional will continue to shoot with DSLRs obviously, but I think that with advaned mobiel camera technologies that will introduced in the future (a lot of money will be poured into those technologies), even enthusiastwill ditch their mirrorless cameras.
The mobile phone killed third of the conventional camera business with a few years time, and I just wonder what the leading camera manufacturers are planning to do next -- I don't think that Canon is planning to release a smartphone, is it?
These guys are breaking records on kickstarter, amazing how fast they raised funds.. really amazing.
This is just extraordinary, just couldn't believe that I'm watching an ISO 3200 photo.. and from a 1-inch sensor- impressive indeed
Typo in the title? should be 18.5 not 10.5?!
