Basalite: "Sigma has been doing lots of good things recently,"
If you mean that then where are the reviews for the Sigma DP1, 2 and 3 Merrill series cameras???
Why are readers also prevented from doing image comparisons with other cameras with the Sigma SD1 you tested outside of that particular review?
Blame Adobe. DP would have to explain the adjusted protocol in their boilerplate scene... sounds like too much work. that doesn't explain jpegs though.
yabokkie: think everyone with a head-mounted version of the camera beam up Olympic games to youlive. when will that happen? 2020?
Yawn. 8k will be better.
Yeah that female photographer should have chucked some lenses at him. He seems like a perfectly reasonable guy... She knew that the cops were being called. Taking pictures probably helped as much as anything else she could've done to limit the violence. The dude had enough self awareness to get shirtless for the camera whenever possible, it probably kept them all safer than if she had jumped in. That is extremely dangerous territory, and if the guy's friend wasn't jumping in, that is a good cue. I think the entire sequence could be helpful for women to help recognize the menacing behavior that becomes more and more prevalent in the series. I think it would have been exploitative if she had brought a full light kit, and kept making them redo shots until it was just right. I think that photographer is incredibly brave, and she is doing something very daring and evokative, but not exploitative.
I suspect they are making these accessories because there are mega-giganto-crappalotta loads of cash dancing in their heads. Steadicam asks themselves, "How many people own steadicams?" "All the steadicam operators own them. There are 500,000 steadicam operators and they each own one." "Crap, I guess we need to wait until more kids graduate film school.... hey wait... how many iPhones sold last quarter?" "23 million.""Hm..."
Wow, the RX100 still seems like the best camera of this class. They should have included the RX1 to the sensor chart, just for laughs.
tommy leong: PERHAPS if we keep the old scene in the middle and EXPAND the edges with new stuff
that would be the best compromise between the oldand new.
This is a very good idea, one we will not explore further.
wus: Again, as already when introducing the HDTV "standard", the industry association fails to specify a minimum frame rate.
1080 @ 24p is already ridiculous, before we move to 4K we should really introduce a higher frame rate for the standard 1080p material that renders fast movements sharp AND smooth. IMHO this is much more inportant than increasing the resolution.
After trying 24, 30, 50 and 60 p with full HD resolution I would think the minimum should be around 72 fps. And for any upcoming 4K standard we should aim at a minimum of 100 fps, and 200 fps for 3D material so that the effective frame rate for full 3D reproduction remains at 100 fps.
They live in a hole, a tiny hole that's usually empty.Usually empty, tiny too.They live in a hole hole a hole that's usually Smptywhich stands for, Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers. Maybe I think that's what keeps them in sync.
GordonAtWork: It's a real shame that the quality of tv programming hasn't increased with the technology. Just how much detail would you want to see on Strictly Come Dancing or The X-Factor or The Valleys (Vallies?).
Nowadays, resolution improves bad programming. These folks on the bachelor pad look pretty good, but how do their pores look? Huh? Well?
munro harrap: What can move that many pixels at a fast enough refresh rate? It wont be workable for 20 years. There will be enormous problems with noise and lag and rolling shutter etc on any capture devices, but, that said there is now going to be a screen with enough resolution to exhibit my stills on, or yours in a museum or gallery- the way they should be seen
good point! It shirley impossibles! You need to call JVC and have them stop selling their 4k kamkorder. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/839193-REG/JVC_GY_HMQ10U_GY_HMQ10_4K_Compact_Handheld.html
imagine a sigma DP2M with 24fps 1080p raw output 1080X3... I'm just not feeling very imaginative today. Let's start with that.
Throwing my two cents in, to the chagrin of all. I think the digital photography story is far from over. Companies are still trying to make an ideal imaging tool that people will love forever, that's worth the price in the consumer's mind. The RX1 solves a couple problems, and has a couple problems.
The ideal camera? I would love a box of these cameras, each at a different focal length, with the speed and ease of the RX100, a full frame foveon sensor with Adobe software written to support it, and a blackmagic thunderbolt or USB 3 (I'm not picky) output dumping 4k video. I would take ten around in a pelican case and never touch a sensor again. I could probably live with just six of them.
I would call the 35mm one Bobby. What was I talking about, again?
I was surprised by the photographer in the far background. I want this camera, but I want most cameras.
12800 looks wow! the sample pics look like the photographer wasn't allowed to leave the grounds of the shopping mall.
Nice viewfinder, but I seem to remember all 35mm p&s zooms having a more elegant system for magnifying the framelines... The viewfinder department doesn't seem to know about optics.
HBowman: Ho my God, so much mistakes in this report ...
At first this is a DP2m, showed on the photo. Second, there is lot more to say about new lens line up but it seems Dpreview do not care (or have been paid to no care ? )
The thing that bothers me is how easy it is in photopro to upres to 200% and you never see any upres images here or anywhere else. They say it is because of their standardized system, but they could at least include one (compared to the Pentax 645d?) to illustrate the effect. It would be the same as if they reviewed the Hassy H4D-200MS without including a sample of the multi-shot image.
M M good... sorry.
RStyga: Call me shallow but holding a camera with the SONY logo ot its forehead is a huge turn off. And for enthusiasts (i.e., non professionals) it is a big deal. It detracts from the photographic feeling... Why didn't they hide it like Panasonic does in (at least some of) their Lumix series? What's wrong with introducing a similar branding? Even DPReview mentioned that using "Cybershot" for this camera is a brave decision by Sony. Branding is important.
I think that the current CEO started in the mailroom of Minolta and this is final phase of life-long Revenge Fantasy.
It looks awesome proving once again that Fujifilm still knows what a real camera looks like... I wish they'd stop hinting around with the stylistic nods and just start making a Digital GW690, wouldn't that be brainmeltingly great? Wouldn't you pay 6000 bucks for one? I probably would, sadly.
