palie: this has been a rich discussion that throws light on many basic issues surrounding photography and cameras. call me a luddite, but i think something quintessential about photography is getting lost. autofocus, image stabilisation, EVF ... yuk. all form factors are a compromise. the biggest problem has been around for decades, namely: how to you get TTL viewing without the complications and intrusion of a mirror mechanism ? it hasn't yet been resolved, and perhaps will never be. in the meantime: pleeze, rollei, stick a low MP digital sensor into your twin lens reflexes. and pleeze, mamiya, do the same with those fabulous medium format rangefinder cams you made in the nineties ...
I had the RZ67 and even today admire the quality of the prints it produced.
The portrait has such depth and so beautiful in colour.
One of the very few images on these forums that actually looks like a photograph and not just another digital image. Well done Leica.
Now if I cash in all my Premium Bonds...
Superb... wow 2
What a relief Sony finally releases a 'duff' camera!
Order of merit with RAW at ISO 1600.
2nd DSC-RX10 MkI
3rd DSC-RX10 MkII
Surprisingly this new sensor, although much quicker, has poorer IQ.
Beautiful colours from Leica, shot with an equally beautiful lens.
If you check out the Leica forum, they can't help posting images. This is why.
just a quick note to Panasonic:
Take that gorgeous 30 x 45mm sensor, with a Leica 35mm lens, and drop it into a GX8 size body. Oh and 4k video please...
Although the extra resolution does not seem to have compromised the sensor performance, I'm not seeing any real benefit here.
I understand it's all about marketing pressure, but I would have preferred the old 16MP with a step up in dynamic range, coupled with lower noise.
If I can give an analogy, I want to buy the cheapest house, in the most expensive road, not the other way around!
A very interesting set of pics, by the way.
Matt: It seems like you moved much faster with the Nikon and even faster with the Canon. Maybe for that reason there was no footage of you moving the Sony camera in and out.
You are also testing the AF drive speed of the lens and not the AF ability of the camera.
This latest test seems a bit ridiculous. This Sony camera seems like a great choice for many, including the cats 'n kids and landscape shooter as long as you dont need un-neutered raw support or an overly strong body (or god forbid, prefer optical viewfinder).
But you are trying a bit too hard with those latest "tests"
Have to agree with Matt here.
I have a lot of respect for DPreview's unbiased testing, but these tests, well you know, look a bit fishy!
So nothing magical inside the a7RII, just the usual bevy of silicon chips doing all the work.
Sony will be making a shed load of money on these, until we have some serious competition.
For pity's sake Canon and Nikon, wake up and get cracking...
Flashback: Is it my eyes, my monitor or maybe I should just get out more, but are those skin tones accurate.
Anybody else with me on this?
Well I never thought of that. Thanks...
Is it my eyes, my monitor or maybe I should just get out more, but are those skin tones accurate.
Despite a so so DR, some really nice images here.
When all else fails, increase the mega-pixels...
exapixel: We threw a grand piano faster than any other spacecraft in history over three *billion* miles. We hit a bullseye, and all the cameras and other sensors worked on the first and only try.
Great nations do great things. I'm proud to have paid for that trip. The probe also had some of Pluto's discoverer's ashes on board. That was very classy.
I believe it was fitted with a Garmin..
Despite having impressive detail, the video clips seem a little over sharpened and a tad 'washed out'
Maybe this new sensor has to be treated with care, for best results.
Now there's a young lady with a proper camera!
Flashback: Some very nice images,
however believing 50mp FF + Otus = Medium Format. Not quite.
Quite possibly true, but come on now, you really 'know' when you see a MF image!
Some very nice images,
