Panasonic taking a leaf out of Canon's book: stick a two year old sensor in a consumer camera and flog it as an update.
I haven't read the marketing fluff but presume this offers substantially more than the current G5?
Typo under "Handling"?
"Despite the smaller dimensions, the Pentax K7’s controls remain..."
How can a camera that has, according to its reviewer, "Mediocre photo quality" with photos that are "soft and noisy" and has "Terrible battery life" and has "buggy" and "outdated" software, and whose wi-fi "has very poor reception" with "occasional connection problems" score...
How bad does a camera have to be to score an average 50%? (let me guess, probably unable to take a photo at all!)
damn, I thought the cat picture was real.
this article was hardly worthy of being a news item.
JohnMatrix: Am I right in thinking the D800s cross-type sensors are all clustered in the central area of the frame, rather than having some of them located towards the edges where they'd be more useful in portrait orientation?
The review doesn't really pick up on that fact, unless I missed it?
@LSE @FuzzTheKingOfTreesI believe the 5DIII (and 1Ds) has cross points further away from centre than the D800.
Chev Chelios: Anyone know whether it will let you spot meter off a selected AF point??
All I can find is the marketing guff about the "63-zone Dual-Layer sensor linked to each point of the AF system" but no word whether spot metering can be moved off of the centre point.
Thanks Richard, appreciate the follow-up.
(I would have guessed the answer would be no, but you never know - Canon may have been feeling generous!)
