Just crushed my Nikon compact at 75f freediving. Will give this a try if IQ good and the switching near surface isn't funky or can't be turned off.
webrunner5: And they have a NEW CEO and this is pretty much a flop. Well done!
BMW and Mercedes are equally boring. Not much visioning going on and each vision is drab. Curbs are littered with their poopy visions.
;) What do you expect? Hasselblad is building small metal boxes with a round hole and a square hole. They buy the logic and the glass. Can't Ceo much there except overseeing marketing and margin. Wooden handles...
PKDanny: They should make AF lenses. Or. They are lazy!!
I buy Samyang Videolenses excactly because they Are manual and no clicks. Makes my cineastic photostyle possible and as primes are supersharp. Oh yes, they do video better than many older super expensive lenses.
Crappy cam. 15m depth. 3.5. Straight to the bin.
wakaba: Very small sensor, small lenses, questionable 4k IQ. My phone is as bad. Adding an app that creates lowend stills...not innovative. Makers really Need to up their systems with ff4k ad good glass. Their stuff is boring and that is why sales are down.
Not really. Just bored with low res and underperforming cam corps.
Tiny sensors and small glass look bad. FF is better and closing the gap to MF. Mostly because some of the new FF lenses are close to the mathematical max and MF lenses are of an older generation.
Btw: Audio cassette is not Hifi. It was a portable format and never exceeded 8bit resolution by today's metric. The P'sonic is right about there.
35mm is also full frame. Logic not your strength?
Yes, MF in a D600 form factor is what I want. FF is what I get and tiny phone sensors are just that.
Yes. The world has moved on. Big sensors rule. Good FF now touch MF. Why would I want anything less?

All I want is a MF camera in a D6xx form factor and 4k/30f video. Till this happens I wont buy a new DSLR. FF has reached physical limitations. Olympus, Sony, Canon overamplify their cheap sensors creating garrish pics compared to Nikon engineered sensors and software. So its Microsoft phone and Nikon and nothing inbetween.
40daystogo: I don't get it. The Leica SL's performance looks no different to the Lumix GM5 which only has a micro 4/3rds sensor.
I've owned a Leica M before, and another digital Leica - but these test results beg the question of the SL - "whether the emperor has clothes".
Pixel count rules everywhere. Just shoot Aloha Classic with my FF Nikon and a 200 Nikon Prime. Fast action and every pic cropable and usable. Not possible with a crumy 43, Aps...or a Leica or supersaturated overamplified Canony. What I really want is MF in a D600 style body.
Massively overpriced Panasonic rebranded crap. Underperforming and ugly. IQ is below average. Most expensive doorstop ever?
Maybe good for a certain videolook on Super 16 Sensor Blackmagic. But there is already better like declicked Rokinon 8mm. Sharper at a low 3.5, bigger fov at 1/3 pricepoint.
wakaba: After years of lazy AF On A shooting - today its manual with prime lenses and my favourites are the spectacular Pretzval with slotstop and decklicked video fisheyes. I need quality prism viewer, large sensor and 13+ stops.
The question in the article is wrong: We need bigger better sensors, higher resolution, bigger glass and not cheapened down hardware...aka mirrorless.
@tedolf: Dynamic range and better Dof. DSLR need to take the leap to bigger formats.

Video works very well with Nikon Dslr: Manual mode, liveview, lenssetup. Manual and declicked Rokinon wideangle lens. The 2k sourcematerial is absolutely pristine and almost 3d. In my opinion way better than the overamplified CanonIQ. N-Camera handling and IQ is very similar to Blackmagic. The FX sensor and the large glass better it in some ways. As with all Video it takes some dedication and experimentation to get good results to tell a story.
Depth rating is too low. Not enough screen. Nikon Aw 110 still better.Use this for freediving. Rated 18m, I take the Nikon to 30m or more 20x in a row on a diveday for two years. Easy to use and more than respectable IQ without strobes but then again us pacific freedivers are spoilt with the amount of good lighting. Ricoh and gopro are underengineered. No buy.
