princecody: How does the IQ of this compare to the Fuji X100T? Why no viewfinder built in or included?
repeat it again one more time, and perhaps it will become truth .... :)
mpgxsvcd: I would gladly pay $899 for a 12-37mm F1.7-F2.8 M4/3 lens. Luckily they throw in a free camera body with it if you get the LX100. I can’t fathom buying the GM5 over the LX100 unless they also announce that great lens for m4/3s interchangeable lens cameras.
Built-in flash No
should had the include external flash
JBurnett: Yay, EVF! I know young'uns often don't care, but we who need reading glasses to properly see the LCD applaud this addition.
yes, for some
nerd2: Except it's 2014 and we can fix distortion in software, and we have good enough high ISO so that we can stop down.
and you can use gaussian blur, and sharpening and ... ?????
datiswous: I think not able to use a viewfinder (internal or via add-on) on a system camera kind of sucks, even if 80% of potential buyers won't need it. Even on high-end compacts this becomes kind of standard.
and this OVF as no diopter adjustment despite it's price, unusable ..
look clean for 2800 and 36Mpx, very good at 12Mpx
No Sony .......
otoklikBG: One thing to keep in mind is that inside A7s is sensor meant for Video cameras, not still photography. It's at video that it really shines. Fact that this also makes stills this good is a great bonus to the Sony name.That said, I am Sony fan(boy) and ditched canon for them because they tickle my gadget itch more than anyone else. Sony is at their best when they let their engineers run rampant and create all kind of thing. from Betamax and Walkman to this day they always improved and innovated (even if some standards lost their advantages really quickly like MemoryStick which speed got overtaken withing 12 months). But at the same time I feel like they are innovating themselves into corner and with so many new and innovative camera's and sensors (including announced curved ones) thy can't keep up with lenses. Especially compared to Caninkon competition. Also, their lenses, by economy of scale, tend to be more expensive while not being quite as good.
1/8th s shot on theatre performance, they are all on a seat?
Yes !was waiting this news for 6 monthes :)
Lawrencew: Next step is to dynamically adjust the curvature in camera, so that it is optimised for the focal length chosen by the photographer.
If they can do in body stabilization by moving the sensor, and now build curved TVs where the curvature can be altered, then it wont be long before they can alter the curvature of the sensor in camera too...
(where's the Patent Office btw :-) )
to late :)
Will be fine to be able to change the curvature of the sensor with piezzo stress, to adapt to different lense, even "flatfield lenses" ;)
ScottRH: And the real question, What can you tell us about a D700 replacement?
To late for me .... went away, sorry
VikingPhotographer: Back in the good old days of celloidfilm cameras nearly all the cameras of all brands was in "chrome" with black "leather", the black models came fx in Hasselblad because of small faults in the chrome, so in a way the were never first choice at the time. Then the black versions became popular for some press photographers and black became more popular, but it was still chrome versions that was first choice. At the time where plastic became more and more the most used material for camera bodies, then black became the norme, not because they were more popular, no because chrome was to diffucult to look nice in plastic ! I must admit that chrome plastic looks very cheap compared to real metal chrome ! But take a look at a Hasselblad chrome, it just look so nice ! The new - still much too expensive - Leica in chrome look cheap and depressed. At the price of a Leica, I would rather but a Fuji X-serie plus a Canon 5D, plus a Sony, plus a...
Depends which begining for good old day!.as for 35mm celluloid,First Leica I, II et II where black+nikel, no chromefirst Retina where balack:)
Where is the finder ?
The mount is FF !:) :) :)
"DCS system, the first commercially available digital camera."
I'm pretty sure that Sony had a digital camera which was commercially available in the 1980s. No, not a DSLR.
No just a Sony prototype in 80'sSony first Mavica commercially available was 2nd part of 90's.The writer should say " DSLR" instead of camera.First commercially available was the very expensive Canon RC-701 than you had a " pretty affordable" Canon Ion in 1988.
1st Digital camera prototype known, is Kodak in 1975
VaLeX: I'd love this camera with a non-detachable 27-95 F2 lens, with zoom controls like the Fuji X20, a bit of grip and a minimal optic viewfinder. ..
buy an X20 ?
Peter K Burian: Research confirms that Phase Detect AF is not available. (The a7s is the same as the a7R in this respect)
25-area contrast AF
phase detect is very fast on A7, on pair with D700
ConanFuji: Pics.. or it didn't happen.
You have a Sony ???
abortabort: "New style Sony" surely means Multi Interface shoe yeah? If so should be a nice travel flash for the A7/R / a6000. Also interesting for the RX10 with leaf shutter and GX1/II.
You won't have TTL if not compatible with multi-interface, so i doubt it will come without it;)
