Marty4650: Leica virtually owns this market. Expensive, but where else can you get an extremely high quality monochrome camera?
This isn't a camera for me, but Leica knows what they are doing. They understand their customers.
I'm just stating the facts. B&W picture is free of chroma noise which is what most people considered noise. By shooting in B&W, you can go very high in ISO and people aren't as bothered by the luma noise and many consider them "artistic".
Turning color photo into B&W does not just remove chroma noise. The chroma noises are converted into luma noise. But I don't believe Monochrom sensor is much better. I have seen M-Monochrom samples. There are still significant noise at ISO 2000. Not a whole lot better than my camera from the same generation.
My image after B&W filter is free of chroma noise.
I grabbed this low hanging fruit with my existing camera with a B&W filter. I can easily go ISO 12800. Cost me $0.
I just wish they make the phone smaller.
"Original Cost: A family home".
Maybe the previous owner's wife divorced him after buying that lens.
The way I do ETTR is I use multi-metering and set the exposure compensation to +1.0Ev or up to +1.7Ev when I am outdoor. I can say that I have at least overcome the ISO 200 limitation on my NEX-3N. However, a couple of downsides are:
More edits needed. Almost all RAW files needs reduced exposure during development, and in varying scale.
I must remember to change the setting back when shooting video. Or the video will be overblown and, AFAIK, there is no way to fix that.
You know what would be an even better idea? Sony opens up the App store and API to 3rd party developers.
If they make one for E-mount, they can charge 2x the price.
I don't really see anything wrong with this image to deserve this rating.
I don't know about you guys. Watching the side by side comparison (1:44) is feels great. A picture is worth more than 1,000 insults.
The 58 lady is using it all wrong.
She need to flip the phone.
A tablet PC using Intel processor can run Windows 8.1! Who would have thought of that?
Weia: It would be nice to add to all the measure of the sensor (not all are mentioned) and the optical zoom range.
Agree with Weia for the call for sensor measurement. If you are writing an article to compare camera phones, you should consistently provide the size of the sensor and focal length in a easily accessible table format. Otherwise, the F-number alone isn't very useful.
The Amazon offer is quite attractive and it also locks people in their Prime subscription. But being cheap, I backup my photos to Flickr. Just in case I had a double harddrive failure. JPEG is good enough for me for the last resort.
With my current boardband uplink speed of 1.5Mbps (that's upload, not download). It will take forever to upload raw files anyway.
I've been searching for answers to no avail. Does the CM1 has a lens cap? Or needs one?
This is a well calculated shot.
OT: who has 1000m lens again?
Even though I'm not going to buy it. The price seems reasonable for a durable bag to me. I mean, do you know how much an LV bag costs?
1/2.3" sensor with an F3 lens for Star Trails?
All pros and no cons. I am feeling more and more that these videos are all paid advertisements. Tell me this isn't so!
A lot of good information (and no flirting this time!).
Just a bit too commercial and feels like a 16-min ad.
On a diff note: I like how the photographer say the A6000 is "light, compact" while holding that FE 70-200mm lens (11:38 mark)
