those snaps only prove you need really good glass for 24Mpix
The Lytro is not a consumer product.It is still this great technology that hasn't found it's purpose, yet.
DenWil: I will be interested to see if a FF sensor with the same pixel density is forthcoming.
such a sensor would be really stupid. imagine a 40+ MPixel sensor no landscape photographer could use because of defraction is starting at f6.3
Thank god it's not 24 mpixel! Defraction would have been noticable from f8 on..
They shouldn't have done this. To my eyes the images do not look any sharper but certainly show a whole lot more moiré.
peevee1: It loses a stop to Pana 20/1.7 and Samsung 30/2.0, yet priced higher. Bad value.
the price is outrageous! the canon 40mm 2.8 is 179 EUR! and that is FF
dharma108: Hmmm...a gold award for a $1200 DLSR that shooters of sports/action and/or wild life--as in birds of flight, etc--can not realistically shoot in raw mode because of the buffer limitations?
Something does not compute for me here. The buffer limitations is a total deal breaker for me. Should it now be known that the 7100 is just for still photography?
I forgot to tell you: 6 frames only can be really annoying!
My Canon 10D from 2003 buffers 6 frames in RAW. But hey.
mike kobal: thanks to the dpreview team for another excellent review! Looks like a killer APSC shooter, too bad about the terrible raw buffer (: I will patiently wait for the D900E with this sensor, ~54mp, rip medium format
Funny idea — a 54mp FFcamera would have defraction starting at f6.3. That would make all your f16 Landscapes look as soft as 70ies softp°rn. Even with the big proud capital E.
And don't forget to buy a new computer first capable of handling the huge files ; )
resolutionwise there is not much coming on top. what a nice excuse for buying a medium format system!e.g. 24mm f1.4 D3s 10p-mpixD3x 16p-mpixD800 17p-mpix
vodanh1982: What is the different between this and tilt & shift the camera?
this is a lens. not a technical camera. that's the difference
IrishhAndy: A real photographer would have defaulted on the bills.
in what world are you living in. the economic crisis is real!
blabla. sorry to say that: but this is just BS. I had once as well to sell my camera to pay the rent. and believe me: you better do.
I do not understand why most manufacturers build their compacts with collapsible lenses. It makes the camera so rickety and vulnerable. The original Olympus Mju 1 with its sliding cover was a clever and durable construction. Quickly and intuitively ready to shoot and it still fitted in a shirts pocket!
This new Nikon looks like the next priss of a camera for a crazy price.
JEROME NOLAS: What is that yellowish cast on the head of Greek man? Overall colours are desaturated and weird.
wildbild: Looks like it is a truely awful camera but with a great auto-focus system and great sensor with nearly no lenses to perform accordingly.
mayby the 1.4 24mm, the 14—24mm zoom the Tilt-Shifts and the 50mm primes and most telefoto primes will do okay. All the lenses designed for APC-sensors and most zooms will perform as if soft images were the holy grale.
Looks like it is a truely awful camera but with a great auto-focus system and great sensor with nearly no lenses to perform accordingly.
keaggy220: I noticed earlier this year, after looking at several years of contest results, that western photographers have zero chance at winning the NG photo contest. Is it because western photographers are subpar compard to developing and eastern nation photographers or because western photographers are choosing familiar subjects? Or is it for some other reason? I bring this up because westerners were shut out in this contest as well.
@ wkay too everyday is a good point. the different always catches the eye.. what an exotic selection for western eyes : )
When I first saw the winning selection yesterday I couldn't believe my eyes.Now, a day later, I feel the need to make a comment, even if it means, that most readers will find it strange or even mean and stupid.
For my eyes, what the winning selection has in common is a severe cheesiness. Except the second prize and Krisna Murti's image—these clearly stands out in this respect—the pictures make use of aesthetics seen in amateur photo competitions in Europe in the 90ies. The images may cover striking moments, but they are no striking photographs. If you take into account that the jury's criteria have been: relevance, originality, creativity and composition it feels even stranger. Only the two images out of six I have pointed out earlier offer something original, creative and have an somehow interesting composition.
Please feel free to disagree. I am still very much irritated by this selection.
