lol these guys keep trying to figure out a business plan.
aris14: I really can't see the needs of 100 Mp, but it's professionals cup of cake.I really wonder who can see the difference of a 50 Mp image compared to an originally shot 100 Mp, no matter the final size to be printed.Anyway, pros problems and tastes.
This goes way beyond even advertising needs, though.
This might be useful for scientific purposes or fine-art.
vFunct: Do all 1" cameras have cyan skies like that? That's pretty bad dynamic range right there.
And, any way to control it in camera? Reduce exposure while dynamically enhancing shadows perhaps?
Do all 1" cameras have cyan skies like that? That's pretty bad dynamic range right there.
The camera JPGs are so much better than the raw edits.
vFunct: This should be obvious. When I first saw the ISO range, I knew it wasn't going to be ISO invariant.
You're not going to get ISO invariance with a sensor that can do 3.2 million ISO. The sensor's electron well depth has to be larger than the base ISO range for ISO invariance. The well in a modern camera only has about 100,000 electron capacity. And you have to have a perfect readout to even get that range.
The test here didn't really cover dynamic range. It's more about noise under low-end push-processing.
A Dynamic range test would also measure noise under high-end pull processing as well, and compare the difference between the two.
This should be obvious. When I first saw the ISO range, I knew it wasn't going to be ISO invariant.
joe6pack: I'm still not clear after reading their webpages. Do they have a single software that can read and process RAW files? What are the supported formats?
No. There's no raw converter here. This is all for post-processing.
Was hoping the new Nikon DL series was about to output Log or at least Flat picture profiles to record onto these, but it looks like it won't.
I was hoping to find a good camera that can do 120fps or 240fps for cheap.
BubbleGum: Well, that's the last drop. Bye bye Flickr.
Indeed. You never would have paid for it.
Good to know that you want everything to be advertising.
I'm sure they're going to miss all the money you never sent them.
Retzius: I'm disappointed...
These camera need MORE MENUS to scroll through!
Options actually slow you down. Each bit of option requires knowledge to use successfully, and knowledge isn't free.
The best systems are the ones that remove options and freedoms, and just do it right for you.
This is why a company like Apple has been so successful, because they get rid of options and just do it right in the first place.
Given all that, Pros need to have options, though. That's why something like the D5 is strictly for them.
But, in general, the fewer options, the better.
Flashback: That DL18-50 looks to be a very interesting addition to this group.
No doubt massive software lens correction going on, but who cares if Nikon have put some of their magic into this camera. Can't wait for some test pics DPR?
You'll be able to see how much lens correction is going on by looking at the raw files.
vFunct: These are real cameras, for real photographers.
Let the amateurs, the poseurs, the untalented, the beginner, the retiree, and the frail and weak pathetic girly-men carry their laughable mirrorless to occasionally play photographer with.
Meanwhile, actual photographers will go ahead and use a real camera like this.
If you're going to use a mirrorless camera, and not get laughed at in the face, it better be a large-format 4x5 or 8x10.
It's basically impossible to get some of the shots without the right equipment.
Amateurs can get jealous and whine all they want about professionals using high-end equipment, but they use them for a reason.
Also, I wouldn't touch Einsteins. They're cheap for a reason: they just don't have the power. I use Broncolor for the studio, as I can get 6400 W/s out of them. That's about 10 Einstein units.
Gesture: Only 25+ dials, buttons, levels on the back alone. The modern digital camera just got lost in the interface-and the obviously locked into sub-assemblies that no one has the bravery to redesign and rethink.
If you think using a D4 doesn't come naturally, you've never used one.
You'd have to be pretty malfunctioned to take "years" to learn how to use one.
I will repeat: these cameras are the most naturally intuitive on the market. Every dial and button is obvious and useful.
FuhTeng: Touchscreen for video, but you can't use it to select AF? Wouldn't that be useful while recording video?
Also, forgive this mirrorless camera user, what's the purpose of mirror-lock up 14 fps? A 20 MP resolution stop-motion video of something that doesn't change focal planes?
Most pro press photographers aren't even going to use the video features here. They're likely going to use a separate video camera.
Marcelobtp: Are you guys are really going to make a full review of it?I don't even remember the last time that you have done a review of a flagship model.No 1DX neither D4/s.
I really would like to see a flagship comparison with Canon. I'm a Nikon user and always wonder about the other side.
But, this site is geared towards consumers. They don't review professional products. Otherwise they'd be reviewing all the medium format studio cameras.
AEY: Body so big but 4k so tiny 3 min per clip. Why??
Because nobody cares about 4k recording.
Ruy Penalva: Very ugly. The external aspect seems something made by the Soviets.
You want the Apple store, which is two doors over.
