camcom12: Shadows appear a bit mottled, void of detail, at least on my monitor. Are these images "right out of the box" jpeg defaults, or were parameters tweaked a bit, or raw then post processed? Most Sony cams can be set to produce very substantial shadow recovery if jpegs are the desired output.
Eric Hensel: Time to get my daily dose of DPR Forum negativity....
Embrace the dark side... (but please don't!)
Cheng Bao: Should it be called CES 2015?
As they should be, monkeybrain. But alas.
And it is now!
justmeMN: Whatever. Samsung is just another miniscule-market-share player scrambling for leftovers in a shrinking market.
@dahod: Samsung's annual revenue for 2012 and 2013 were $190B and $216B, respectively (http://www.samsung.com/us/aboutsamsung/investor\_relations/financial\_information/downloads/2013/2013-samsung-electronic-report.pdf).
Those numbers are for the entire company though and not for their Mobile Communications Business, which owns their camera portfolio, and which also owns their smartphone and tablet portfolios.
le_alain: Are you sure this one is the ACR version ?
Yup. Have a look at the conversion notes, primarily the ~1 stop exposure reduction.

Also logic error. Implied strongly is that you get 12tb of storage AND raid protection. If you choose 12tb, you get NO protection and in fact raise your probability of an error by a ^2 since in a stripe set the entire data set is lost if either disk goes down. So you get 12TB of storage in a high risk configuration or 6tb with data protected in a mirror (raid).
Thanks for pointing it out. It's been updated to better reflect the fact you get 6TB RAID 1 or, god help you, 12TB RAID 0. :)
Brian Caslis: Can't drag on a Mac using either Safari or Chrome. Worst webpage design I've ever seen.
There was an issue with voting for a short amount of time, but that shouldn't prevent dragging and dropping on Macs. I'll go pester the Mac users on our team.
Steve Bingham: I can't get it to work - after 5 minutes!This sucks.
Try it again. There was a small error preventing votes.
Whitesands: it doesn't seem to be working
Try again. Should be fixed.
pew pew: i drag click vote nothing..
Juri Janasik: Poll doesn 't seem to be working properly
Should be working fine. Give it a try now.
jjandj: Does not work in Chrome on my desktop. Might try again tomorrow, might not.
There might've been some intermittent problems but it worked just now when I was testing it. Give it a shot!
Maff maff: Interface is not working with Touchscreen like iPad or kindle fire
Okay, should be working on all devices now. Feel free to reply here if you're still getting issues.
John Zimmerman: Was the Canon 200-400 this year? If yes, it is my favourite.

Should work on desktop version of the site on all devices. Fixing the poll on the mobile version of the site.
agc73: Doesn't appear to be working. Nothing happens when I click to vote on the camera list.
FYI using Chrome on a MBA.
@zubs - Working on the mobile version.
@turbsy - The alternative would be to have several dropdowns? Kind of ugly, imo.
Zigmont: Just a correction: "The Sony also uses all of it’s 12.2MP sensor..."
"It's" is always and only a contraction for "it is". If you wouldn't use "it is" then don't use "it's". There is no such thing as a possessive "it".
In the sentence above, "it is" would be incorrect, so it's "its".
Thanks for catching that. Its fixed now. ;)
Bear in mind that the cost of just the back alone is suggested at 24,990 EUR / 34,990 USD, plus the body and lens. Winning the contest and getting a loaner would probably be the only way most people would ever get to work with technology like this.
pixelpushing: I have a few questions. If DPR gets this much outrage directed at them for taking a handful of intentionally casual real-world shots, what chance do amateurs have, posting their imperfect shots in these forums? Talk about a tough crowd.
Secondly, good to see at least one night street shot, which appears to show mitigated sensor stack reflection known to annoy some with the prior model. Did you guys see any indication of that phenomenon in your pictures?
Lastly, how do I scrub the DUCK RIDE monstrosity from the nightmares I'm going to have for the rest of my life, where it's coming for me?
Can't sleep, duck ride monstrosity will eat me.
