Reality check: This is a PR (Public Relations) video, a form of advertising, not a detailed and exact QA (Quality Assurance) documentary nor one on Japanese work values, ethics and non-smiling. Get real folks. Caveat: I lived/worked in Japan for 8 years and have in-laws there. You want to see or know Japan, go there for more than a week as a tourist. Corporate PR videos are just that corporate PR. Not all that is Japan.
71 mm (2.8″) long make it a bit long for steady, low-light, hand-held shooting considering these two full-frame Sonys have no IBIS unless you're willing to pump up the ISO. The price for a "normal" lens is, IMHO, ridiculous.
Another "Let-them-eat-cake!" priced optic...
The Life of Ril3y par excellance!
Looks good, very good even. But not knock-your-socks-off better than say Olympus OM-D EM-5 with good primes, especially up to and including ISO 1600. Maybe Oly's jpeg engine is just plain excellent while this one is very good considering the sensor size.
Wow, I can see the veins and arteries in the horse's eyes. Incredible resolution. Other than that ... Maybe this is an electron microscope and not a camera.
Seriously folks, these were meant as initial shots, obviously not studio tests. Let's hope DPR puts out some more in a variety of lighting and subjects including landscapes which it should--not should--excel at as Sony touts the RX-1r. Give DPR a break, posters.
Home sweet home ... ?
Duh ... $3,000 for a body only doesn't sound like the FM or FM-2n I used to have. Unless the price would be lower, MUCH lower, I'll stick with my pseudo-Leitz Minolta CL Olympus E-PL1 w/ pseudo-but-better-than Nikon 45/2.8 Panasonic 20/1.7.
Nice take on a doorways' image. Unique, off-center perspective is refreshing after seeing a zillion centered ones. Well done!
OMG ... $799 for a plain-vanilla 35mm f2.8 lens. That's not good. Period.
This image really bugs me... Seriously, it's actually quite cool.
Gear aside, this is what photography is all about! Kudos. ulfie
Pretty sharp with el cheapo kit zoom lens. Slap on the Panny 20/1.7 and you could lacerate your eyeballs.
Nice image! Though I must add it has some seriously blown out highlights in the white flour areas and on the surfaces of the grain stalks in the foreground.
Simple: Too expensive.
I bet somebody sneaked in and drank all the booze in the bottles of the old scene, and then took them in to get the recycling money. That's really why you had to re-do the whole thing. Heh heh...
Due to nostalgia, I still like the old one. That's not to say this new one is bad. It sure beats taking pics of a brick wall which so many photogs post in their threads.
Those aren't "dots on the playing cards." They are atoms! ;)
What a marvel of engineering design! Evolutionary or Intelligent? Who cares!
