Nothing special now.
Same thing as bayer, but with Foveon's drawbacks.

In reply to:

Princess Leia: This is not innovation. Sony has been doing the phase detection autofocus with their SLT cameras for a while now. Having said that, it is nice to know Canon is playing catch up.

SLT works differently.

"Sky is falling, we are all doomed!" :)
In fact, I do not care anymore about Pentax. It is like first love — sweet memories, great photos left, but it was in the past. Mature love is not of bells and labels, but of process — taking photos. That's where all brands unite.

Nice features! But I do not believe in Android anymore. Only when OS will be updated by Google, not my lazy manufacturers (like HTC). Only when phones will be supported for 3-4 years (3GS iphone only now ends its iOS 6 support). And only when normal backups/restore from the box will exist (without that hacky-DIY things like flashing/fastboot/Titanium)

agenkin: A moron climbs the pyramids illegally and snaps a few ego shots. That could be newsworthy if presented properly, but not as some Indiana Jones type adventure story. Shame on you, DPreview.

Wash your mouth, be polite

In reply to:

Rosember: Do - nice, but nothing more - photos justify cultural disrespect and breaking protective laws? How many people will follow these guys and put damage to these monuments of mankind? To me, this resembles more a teenage ego trip than an adventure, sorry.

agenkin, you said so many times "moron", maybe you need to be more polite and wash your mouth, don't you think?
Pyramids are closed for climbing because of unprepared untrained tourists that can injure themselfs. These guys have lot of experience of climbing.

On CP+ 2013: Panasonic interview article (202 comments in total)
In reply to:

forpetessake: >"Uematsu explains the company's options: 'There are three solutions, I think: we can make a camera with a small sensor and a bright lens - like the LX7 or we could use a bigger sensor but with a slower zoom lens."
Whoa, somebody stop that guy, he's telling the company's secrets. If people with small sensors start understanding equivalense they will stop paying 10x for those 24-70 f/5.6 and 70-200 f/5.6 in FF world -- ignorance of the users translates into healthy margins, so let's keep it that way.

only in terms of DOF it has F:7.0
In terms of light passed it is exactly F:1.4.
The only problem here is sensor - because its pixels are smaller and gain less photons per pixel than in FF sensor.
But light passes per square cm is same as in FF camera with F:1.4

We need LX8 with GPS built-in!
And configurable ring (not just aperture) like in Oly XZ-2
Please! :)

It took me few years to start thinking of cameras as tools and do not "love" them as object. And to start feel magic from the photo itself, not from particular camera or film. Now I do not select any of my cameras as the most beloved one now and shoot photos using smartphone, compact, DSLR and TLR.

In reply to:

rrr_hhh: I thought that the 4.2 version was supposed to give you access to the full raw picture, even if you had chosen a cropped format. But nothing has changed here. I don't understand why something that simple, which C1 Pro is offering since years can't be included in LR and ACR. Even Olympus proprietary raw converter offers that choice.

It is really deceiving. Is it that hard for Adobe to understand that you can change your mind after the shoot, or that you need some of these supplementary pixels to straighten your tilted horizon without loss if possible ??

What exact cameras you are talking about?
Because Panasonic LX5 does NOT record all pixels. Only selected crop area.

In reply to:

robjons: I'm curious how big the sensor is, but I can never find your (DPR's) sensor size graphic. What do I type in the search to see it? Of course, it probably only shows FF as the largest...

Not too much bigger than fullframe 36x24

On Lexar announces 256GB SDXC UHS-1 card article (15 comments in total)
In reply to:

shaocaholica: Does SDXC spec support files bigger than 4GB or is that a camera specific feature?

It is filesystem specific feature. Not even connected to card.
You can format you card to NTFS or ext3 (but of course it wont then work in digital cameras)

But, yes, SDXC by standard should use Microsoft's exFAT filesystem that supports this.

PS: Why do you need your camera to write files bigger than 4 GB?
AVCHD has built-in support for chunking long enough videos into 4 GB chucks. And I still don't understand who wants such long simultaneous videos. Usually people write small parts and then mount them in to single movie using Final Cut or Adobe Premier.

qwertyasdf: Actually the sensor size of the 645D is not 645 right?

What is 645? All 645 film cameras have different frame size and it is not equal to 6x4.5

In reply to:

Alanis: 14 and a bit megapixels. VGA size movies. Fixed lens, fixed focal length. The only redeeming factor may, I say may, be that the lens is decent.
Welcome to 2008.

This cam does not have 15 MP of each color.
It has 15 MP of colored pixels. THis is different. Not to mention that Jpeg will ruin all microcontast of single pixels after compression and that Foveon sucks much at hi iso. Thouse coloury MEGA pixels become dirty megapixels at say 1600 iso.
