Pal2012: What about connection time?
The problem I have with these cards is the short time that they stay connected and I find it a real pain, was this mentioned somewhere and I missed it?
I have the EyeFi, the connection is started by first taking a picture and then you have to wait for your device to then see that there is a WiFi Network and then when you take a little time to recompose the connection drops and you start all over again...
Pierre Courtejoie: Just to make it clear, as it was not apparent from the review (unless I read it too fast), does both cards create a had-hoc Wi-Fi network? I.E. Do they work without a wi-fi router?
That wont help all of those cameras that have no connectivity.
For example there is no live or quick way to view an image you just took with a NEX7 etc
What about connection time?
Imagefoundry: so many trolls...The technical skill behind this project is considerable - just try to colorize any BW image and see where it lands you. Heck, most of you haters can't even take a decent picture in a first place based on what I see being posted in forums.
Was a matter Olyflyer, bad childhood? Everyone was so critical of you? Or is it that you picked the wrong camera to use and are so cranky it is just leaking out of you like rusty contaminated water? My Question to you, Who are you exactly? Not exactly the photographers eye brain trust? No just someone with low self esteem perhaps trying to put others down to make himself feel good?
What ever it is , put a clamp on it!
Decent review and its good to know this doesn't suffer from the poor design of the Pentax models, bloatware etc
These are ok but from what I have seen will be quite expensive for what I would be getting.
Are there going to be any really decently fast prime lenses coming out; i.e. 12mm to18mmf/0.9 or f/1.2?
Ganondorf: What the hell does un-damped mean??
It means they complety dried it out from the flooding. A lot of lens got very damp from that and so we are all concerned if it is reallt dry or not.So "un-damped" means that yes it was wet and now it is dry.
If it is a "dampened" lens then this means you probably should not buy it and you might ask why it was dampened.Hope this helps.
Everdog: Again the WRONG lens to make this NEX-system very un-appealing. Soft pictures.
Slow F/2.8 Fixed focus which can be limiting and most likely very soft corners again until about F/8.
Shame on Sony
Hey its more-on troll, hey, whats that? What? Oh it sounds like, must be, OMD wanna be NEX troll! We know you don't know squat but please go ahead and do tell us again the merits of the low light cabability of the OMD vs. Nex...hows that? And why is it not prefered over the NEX under the most demanding low light situations like astrophotagraphy? And others? Why does orly market the ISO its actual ability? say what? ruff ruff ruff
You saw the art and you captured it perfectly.
Thank you for sharring it.
IrishhAndy: So its not really a kodak, ita a JK.
And so your 43 is not really an Orly its a Sony?
This is Good, Late but good.
And why not? It was after all Kodak and Olympus who came up with the 43 standard back in 2002.
The only problem I see is that most but not all of the talent that was there back when are gone due to poor managment, hopefully this will create even more competition and we all will benefit.
Everdog: There are 3 types of posters here:1) those who have switched to mirrorless2) those who are going to switch to mirrorless3) Some guy who created 4 or 5 accounts a week or so ago to promote Sony cameras
And you have Pentax envy? :)
Everdog: According to "Just Posted", only P&S cameras and smartphones can be "Camera of the Year" because they sell the best. The D800e and D800 must be terrible!Please tell us who you really are and quit creating new IDs for posting here!
I think the D600 should have won or come in 2nd. Compare it to the Sony A99 which cost twice as much and performs 1/2 as well.
Everblog, why do you troll so many forums here at DPR?
Not enough attention to your Flicker account, people don't like your pcitures or you just don't enjoy using your camera? I just recieved the new 35/1.8 OSS lens and am having a great time as well as testing a nice 12mm (16 eqv) I am still enjoying the really affordable 5n. Waiting for some adapters for some old Legacy stuff my nef is giving me and I know it will be enjoyable fun to use the MF focuss peaking with some wide open fast old primes etc.
Just relax and go get out and take some pictures and quit trolling ok?
naththo: Just Posted: Read my lips: Who use the most mirrorless camera available today to date: Panasonic and Olympus 4/3. Who has the most available lens for the mirrorless: Olympus 4/3. Who has built in IS in mirrorless camera: Olympus 4/3. Nex did not meet all specific requirement in competition to beat others and failed. Nex con is: No built in IS, less lens available, to get more lens available separated adapter must be purchased first and to have IS available lens must be purchased that has built in IS. That will make Nex hobby more expensive than Olympus overall for example. Olympus is still the most affordable mirrorless camera to date. Do you get the picture? Everyone can have entitle to have opinion on brand but remember these above are the reason why. Sony starts mirrorless a lot later than Panasonic and Olympus first made it way back then. And finally now Canon is first time make one mirrorless camera this time but only first time ever. While Pentax started a lot later too.
So what? Its a scale that a person choses, what exactly is your point? The fast that most people use a 1/2.3 sensor P&S means You should sell your mirroless and buy one of those? Nonsense!
You chose a smaller scale mirrorless format, good for you. Others like myself my chose a larger format in a smaller camera body for other reasons, its a personal choice that you seem to be trying to impose on everyone else. Why are you trying so hard? It kind of sounds like you are trying really hard to convince yourself that you made the right choice. Maybe you should find out more about other cameras and then you would know for sure instead of sounding so insecure.
Affordable? The EM-5 with its smaller sensor and big body that doesn't work as well for low light or for carrying around with you at all times? err ok what ever you say, good choice for you, enjoy but not for me, no thanks.
"which makes Olympus winning even more remarkable"
This is were the truth comes in doesn't it, nothing is remarkable about it since here at DPR the 43 forum has many more members than any other forum here.
Sorry DPR does not reflect the rest of the planet. Get over it.
Husaberg Grok: Calling people who defend a system they love a "fanboy" is getting pretty old.
Insulting people and the systems they like is just weird and immature.
Over the 50+ years that I've enjoyed photography I've enjoyed many fine formats and brands and I've never felt it neccessary to put down or denigrate another enthusiust or their gear. Neither have I been put down in the real world.
Just think about it.
For a person so concerned with "old" , immaturity and age that has posted in this thread on the backs of others comments more than 50 times I might be thinking of how much time you have waisted trying to insult the intelligance of others and how much time you could be spending with your OMD.
mauijohn: It can't do continous autofocus but got the first prize.? but no thanks i'll get the second prize,the Nikon....a decade proven reliable brand of camera since before the ww2.
Fast action and the OMD Continuos-AF fails. you find it funny?
coroander: Certainly on this site the Olympus OM-D E-M5 shows its popularity. Look at the right panel on this page and under "Top cameras". The OM-D appears second under "Galleries", and 6th under "Challenges". There's no camera released in 2012 that appears higher in either of these two "Top cameras" lists.
My Bad Coroander, but arn't you confusing DPR's large 43 populace majority with the rest of the world?
If you want keep to going the popular must mean better route then How do explane the continued global dominance of even just the NEX7 sales over the OMD after vall this time?
Funny how it just jumped out to 7% and with in just days it down down down. Better get clicking, click click click.
Its been out for almost 9 months now, sales peaked long ago, and is still outsold , daily, weekly and monthly by other cameras older and newer in its class. So what?
Everdog: Most Micro Four Thirds users are former Canikon, Sony or Pentax DSLR owners.If you watch the M43 forum everyday there is another post from someone making the switch from the larger DSLRs.This really seems to bother the old school guys and we see it here. They get really upset when DPR and LensRentals post test results that prove, " Phase-detection autofocus (even using still targets and center-point only) wasn’t nearly as accurate as contrast detection."
These snobish narrow minded post offer no basis in fact.
Really, anyone with half a brain knows CD AF is better than PD AF on >stills because "better" in this case means more accurate, on stills. who would question that? Speed? whole different answer and everyone knows that as well. You get 0 points.
CD is not exclusive to MFT, nor to the EM5, what are you trying to say? Hello? 0 points.
A lot of DSLR users have switched to smaller formats or in probably most cases have augmented what they use. But to say they have switched to MFT is a big stretch.
Where the votes count are the ones where real money is used, Sales my friend and APS-C continue to have a larger market share globaly. 0 points.
Nex? You can chose CD or PD, so what? IS the NEX better? Y and N, its all what the USER wants, I am so glad that YOU don't get to pick for me, and visa versa I am sure. Can you knock of the fanboy crap and grow up a little?
