But hey, aircraft vibrations could still move the camera as such, unintentionally, externally, mechanically.

Rocky Mtn Old Boy . Cheers. But does that have quite the vibration reduction effect of an IBIS system?

Isn't he right? Maybe they should have put 5 axis IBIS in there.

Franz Weber: Why did they use a 400mm lens with 2x teleconverter instead of a 800mm lens in first place?

Cost I would think.

Sure the stitching is poor (but 70,000 images! - can't be easy). But I love it. Lots of detail and fun playing 'where's Wally" looking for the many people and points of interest.

IQ looks good. Question mark over af tracking and what about high ISO?
How about with a brighter lens?

Dougbm_2: Very interesting article Rishi and co. Thanks!

I feel the bridge image could have been processed a bit more ... seems a bit flat.
See my version in my gallery…http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/9311784622/photos/3203776/rizalbridge-d810-v4-fullsize
What do you think?

@Rishi:Yes I thought car light trails would have helped.
Guess I am too used to processing real estate photography : ) but I thought more foreground interest helped the shot. Hey it is your photo so of course you prefer your processing. I just thought it was a little flat and only spent a few minutes tweaking the image. Maybe the foreground should have actually been darker! Cheers

Dougbm_2: Maybe it is all the camera most of us really need. If only it was a 1inch sensor.

Yes I know but the 1/17 just doesn't cut it these days. If this was 25-125 and 1" I would certainly be looking at it.

Dougbm_2: How curious that it can't match the Nikons in RAW. Is it a different sensor or is the RAW 'processed' deferentially and Nikon has the magic dust for that?

@ theprehistorian - how is the sensor different?

In reply to:

cheetah43: Design: that grip, horrible, stuck on [looks as if] with sloping shutter! Forget this. Can one hope for a larger RX1, ILS camera with EVF? No silly grips, please! C'mon Sony, you can do it. The a7II looks awful.

I didn't find it that comfortable without the grip when I handled it in the shop. Body a bit short.

ollieye: I am wishing to downsize equipment. I mostly take people pictures inside, low light and from a distance. I have a Nikon D7000 with several lenses now. Any suggestions? Maybe this new P900?

Sony RX10 or Panasonic FZ1000 for a bit more reach.

81% and only Silver seems pretty mean. Should the score and award have some sync? eg Gold over 80% Silver over 70%

arndsan: love my x100s but...
options and feature are agains the approach of the camera.
If I want to use f2 with more then a 1000sec I need to change ISO or switch on the ND filter or the electronic shutter, how is that intuitive. Give us a 2000sec at least. When I do my setting and learn then that I'm with 1300sec overexposed and I need to think about a other strategy to get around this, I found it very confusing and not engaging. If the electronic shutter is as good as the leaf shutter why not just go for this one.
Same with all the soft buttons - after picking up the camera I need to check all the settings over and over again. The flash just fire, the ND filter is on because it's on the FN button and so on...
And please make the battery meter more reliable...
That's what is missing.
Putting a little screen into the OVF is not really a update - if the manual focus is on wire, I will not use it anyway.
so far

Seems like you want a Custom settings button as per Canon DSLR

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I absolutely love the Direct Aperture, exposure compensation, and Shutter speed control dials. However, I can get those exact same things on the Panasonic LX100.

What I can’t live with is a fixed focal length lens. At 16 Megapixels you aren’t going to be able to crop enough to overcome the fixed focal length.

This appears to be an excellent camera that I would never ever even consider buying simply because the LX100 fits my needs so much better for less money. However, I will say that their implementation of Auto ISO looks to be outstanding. I wish other companies would do the same thing.

Big shorts!

In reply to:

b0k3h: i want AUTOMATIC ND filter if shutter speeds exceeds camera limits. Ricoh GR has this.

dont want to map a button for ND filter because other functions are mapped to it (e..g ISO)

So agree with this.
Same for macro, why doesn't it automatically switch?
