AJDVD: I wish there would be a real medium size digital alternative for 6x6 or 6x7.Do not forget nominal 37.52cm2 for a 6x7 Mayima film camera. While the Hasselblad or any other sensor is just 21.69cm2. With all the consequences in depth of field, color-resolution, etc.Please Sony make a 56X56 or 56x67 sensor. Of course it means larger lenses and body but think about a modern version of Fuji's analogue folder. Dreaming because those sensors would be really expensive right now.
As much as I long for a digital GF670-like camera with full size sensor. But i would not suggest anyone try to make one. The benefit / cost ratio for average consumer is just way too low. I'd rather manufacturers focuses on lowering cost for 135 full frame and some cost-effective mid-frame sensors.
chj: Wow, and I thought it was going to be a Sony 7R with a big ugly wooden handle.
Me too. I lost my bet to a friend for this. But I am happy I was wrong.
20 bucks on wooden handle A7R2.
vFunct: Big news! Raw image processing coming to iOS 10: https://developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2016/505/
@Francis SawyerYou can use the Lightning SD Card Camera Reader to load RAW files onto iPad and iPhone. There is a USB version to plug your camera in to do the same thing.
I have been using this on the go. It works smoothly.
Seems DPR folks like this cam, at least using it. I find the general quality (easy on eye) of sample gallery implicitly goes with how the DPR likes the cam. ;)
LukeDuciel: Great piece! Thanks Chris.
Now, only if I can mark it somehow, so I can come back read it again on DPR...
@FellwalkerYes I have been doing all those. But isn't it immediately more intuitive to have a place on DPR to retrieve all?
Great piece! Thanks Chris.
Tick many boxes for me but lacking a big one - optical stabilization.
I will wait for gen2 if Oly' can continue this product line.
DavidsfotosDotCom: Looks great except I would rather pay hundreds of $ more & have a sensor bigger than a cell phone! How big of a print can you make with this size?
You've probably missed the point of this product.
vscd: "all require external filter systems like those designed by Fotodiox"
...In some cased you can use the gel filter slot instead.
Not sure about Canon 1124. The Nikon 1424 does not have a gel slot.
LukeDuciel: Great piece! I am really eyeing RX-10M3 for hiking too. The sensor does show its limit. But I do shoot more and more video on the road. The reach and video capability of this cam is so enticing.
Last time I hiked around Annapurna in Nepal, I brought an RX100 and a DSLR. When I look back at the photos from that trip, almost all daylight photo was taken with the RX and only some night sky series was did with the DSLR. After that trip, I started to leave the DSLR at home more and more when went out for hiking.
@tbcass Try removing the SIM card when hiking and using iPhone as an GPS map / tracker.
My 4yr-old iPhone 5 can sustain 2 days of day time tracking (turned off when I reach camp) in this mode.
The trick is the phone continuously seeks cell network signal when it tries to locate. When it cannot get a hand-shake with a tower, it boost its radio power hence bleeds the battery.
Removing SIM card tells the system to shut down cell network radio. The GPS chip itself is not very power-consuming.
Finally a screen. I will definitely buy one.
sh10453: Very surprised at the disappointing amount of noise in bright sunlight conditions at ISO 100 and 40mm equiv. (looking at the 4th, full size, 1:1, image of the female hiker on top of Mount Teneriffe; arms and legs).
The noise level is basically what we have been seeing on RX100M3 and M4. It is not really surprising.
Great piece! I am really eyeing RX-10M3 for hiking too. The sensor does show its limit. But I do shoot more and more video on the road. The reach and video capability of this cam is so enticing.
I am honestly shocked by the number of self-center and cold-blooded comments that bluntly dismisse the statement as marketing stunt purely based on their own conjecture.
The Kumamoto earthquake is of magnitude 7.3 according to USGS, which is then followed by a series of strong after-shock above magnitude 6.0 in the following days. Fortunately, there is only a handful of casualties thanks to Japan's prevention and reaction systems. However, infrastructure in the area suffered significant damage.
I am not saying Nikon is a saint company. But hey, at least keep some sense of decency and sympathy, OK?
Yake: The shape of the lens is beautiful, but that smooth focus ring ... what's up with that? It almost says "Don't use me".
I think it works OK for Otus 85, at least for the several hours I worked with them. Probably wide enough? Not sure how it feels on these smaller lenses though.
Zeiss's new style, I think. The Otus share similar focusing ring design.
HTC is producing 2 version of this model 10, one with Snapdragon 820 SoC and the other 625 Soc. The two are confusingly similar in name and shares the exterior. The good DXO score is only achieved on the 820 version. The 625 version is a cheap b*stard in disguise.
Oh Canon, what happened to you?
