A part II of this challenge would be nice....
Do older generations bridge cameras like the Konica Minolta A1/A2 or the Canon Powershot Pro1 fit your definition of a superzoom?
Congrats. Very well done.
May I also use a Lego toy from my own childhood ;-)
Why only Canon EF- and Nikon F- mount, and no Pentax and Sony A-mount? Not a smart thing to do, exluding a number of potential customers for no good reason.
Black and white allowed or only colour photographs?
Impressive to see how sensor technology has improved over the last 8 years.
Still have a Konica-Minolta A2 in use. It uses a 8 MP 2/3" Sony CCD sensor. The performace is nowhere near the performance of the 20 MP 1" sensor of the RX100 II: the RX100 II makes much cleaner pictures at ISO6400 that the old A2 does at ISO400. I sometimes wonder how good a nowadays A2 would be using a modern 2/3" CMOS EXMOR-R sensor.
Wow, at least as good on ISO3200 as from my SLT-A55. Impressive, way to go Sony!
What I would buy for a +/- 8 year old would be a Konica-Minolta Z-series camera, like a Z5. Can be bought for next to nothing second hand and they are great for children, fitting right in their little hands.
Define old. Any phone with a rotary dial or any phone that needs a fixed line?
<master yoda mode>Hmm, not a very pleasent story this is. </master yoda mode> ;-)
On the other hand, now that everything is exposed and out in the open, it think this challenge is the safest to take part in! Everybody is on guard and really putting things under the microscope, so any cheating willl be noted at once.
No Sony A-mount version? Bummer.
mironv: All toys like this come with hidden specs that more important that all they provided. What is effective F stop at 840mm ??? 11.5 at 2520mm f64 how to shoot this at 1/2500 at f64 ISO 104000????
How does this thing compare to a 800mm F8 Mirror lens + x2 Teleconvertor (= 1600 mm F/16 lens)
Although this bird is not completely black, it is one of several birds in the crow family.
Trivia:The Eurasian Magpie is believed to be among the most intelligent of birds, and among the most intelligent of all animals. Magpies have been observed engaging in elaborate social rituals, possibly including the expression of grief. Mirror self-recognition has been demonstrated in European magpies. The magpie is thus one of a small number of species, and the only non-mammal, known to possess this capability.
Oops, I checked Wikipedia,and a handful of BF109Fs were used late in the Battle of Britain in 1940.
Very nice plane and photo. Unfortunately, this is either the BF109F or BF109G version, which did not participate in the BoB.
