faterikcartman: FujiFilm uber alles! But seriously, while I have wet darkroom equipment in boxes, including condenser and dichroic enlargers, my wife would kill me if I ever tried to go back to that. If the Hasselblad scanners were cheaper I might have made a play for developing negatives and printing inkjet. But as it stands it just looks like a fight I won't win and isn't worth the trouble.

"my wife would kill me if I ever tried to go back to that" x2

Whew, I read the comment about HD, and I thought Oh No, this needs 4k at least, he'll have to go back and do it all again. Thankfully he had the foresight to actually record in 8K !! Brilliant.

Favorable Exponynt: Great if you like yellow skin tones

AND, on a non calibrated 1080p monitor in a fluorescent lit room next to a window...

As I look at the walls about my home and office, the very best prints have come off a foveon, that's how I judge that this is a camera I am very interested in.

I will keep shooting with my iPhone, my DxO one, my Lumix GX85, my Nikon D7200 and none of that precludes me and my tripod hiking to a gorgeous vista and contemplatively capturing a stunning landscape that will look stunning hanging on my wall with this technology.

41mm: It fits very well balanced in the hand and its a magnesium masterpeace and a state of the art 100 ASA/ISO camera. Not for highspeed shooting.
Its just e perfect camera for art and high level photography.
Not more, not less and now with Adobe DNG support for the photographers best.
Bravo and i hope we will see a DNG firmware update for the dp Quattro series too.

41mm, I think the sd has dual processors making for quite the difference. I would love to see the option for a DNG with sufficient dynamic range either in camera, or in software, this matters not.

In reply to:

photofisher: So is this a first for a Sigma Foveon....being able to shoot in DNG? You really can use any RAW converter now?

It has to be seen how this works, you can shoot XF3 AND DNG OR JPEG... the dng format is high res, but not super high res, which is still reserved for jpeg. it will be interesting to see if in Sigma Software we can export the XF3 or the new X3I (?) format to DNG, which would be useful in some circumstances.

The global site says the SD will get firmware update to match the features.

I am looking forward to the printing enhancements. Thank you.

I shall have to follow up on this. Mel and Sue are crucial. Here in the colonies we get the shows 6 months after initial airing, so the news of the day is long past when the tall ships sail into our harbour with the newsreels.

WHAT? Mary Berry left the GBBO? Say it isn't so.

Dennis Linden: It would be good to have a source to know how the Zuiko lenses with IS work with not only the EM5/EM1 but the GH5 or the GX80/G85 with their dual IS system. Seems to me like both companies are converging on Dual IS, but that does not necessarily mean they will be compatible in the beginning. Any words?

FuhTeng, It's not that they don't, but they tend not to publish it. If you look on OLY, they only say Zuiko lenses, Lumix -- lumix. In the early days when only Lumix had IOS, the reasons were clear, but now, that they both seem to have similar technology, the reasons not to open the systems is less clear. I would hope they realize the end user's desires to have this information and not try to bury it or make independent labs verify it.

MrTaikitso: I have to date been a Panasonic man, but always liked the aesthetic of the Oly cameras and lenses and also noticed the images have more 'pop'. But being a video guy, stayed with Panny. However, this appeals. Does anyone who is neutral have any comments on the pros and cons of this over day the new Panasonic G80/85? The handling on the G7 is superb, but in a way, is similar to the Olys with the position of the twin dials. I used to have a GX8 with a superb Oly Zuiko Pro 12-40mm, so I guess would use the same lens if I moved to this E-M1 Mark II, for video.

Good insights. I do wish that they would provide some compatibility grid between the evolving OIS systems. You note the OLY dual IS is referenced to only 2 Zuiko lenses, well, what about the Lumix lenses with OIS. Since the new Lumix GX80 G85 and likely GH5 will also have 5 axis IBIS AND dual OIS, how will these work together. After all, that's one of the beauties of the m43 system.

I had EM5 but now shoot Lumix and love it. I am particularly impressed with the Lumix/Leica lenses, and now, with the whole range of Leica DG lenses for m43, I really want to know how they will work on OLY EM1. Will they actually share the dual OIS IBIS data and make a spectacular system. More compatibility, more sales.

StephaneB: I cannot believe you missed ACDSee!

I've come back to ACDsee 9, it is complete and fast. Does all the required photo editing steps for 99%. Very affordable and runs perfectly well on a i5 surface with 128 MB and an external drive for more storage.

Soggoth: Still not a true 4K, unfortunately:
"4K Enhancement Technology shifts each pixel diagonally by 0.5 pixels to double the resolution and surpass Full HD image quality. Resolution is 1920 x 1080 in 3D Mode"

Yes yes, but does it come in pink?

Well, there's manipulated and then there's manipulated, I suppose it's somewhat like speeding, held to the ultimate standard, you are or you are not, yet we all rationalize degrees of speeding. jimkahnw is most likely correct. We can all rationalize some editing, but at which point does one draw the line where the ticket is written? Correcting the photo is one thing, changing it another.

On article Hasselblad to announce 'game changer' next week (454 comments in total)
In reply to:

noirdesir: Photorumors just posted the first images including the first two lenses and their specs: http://photorumors.com/2016/06/21/the-new-hasselblad-x1d-medium-format-mirrorless-camera-leaked-online/

Body: $9000
Lenses: $2300 & $2700 (45 mm f/3.5 & 90 mm f/3.2)

Well, it is not really intended to do anything to <i>your</i> game. You or I might never even see one of these camera's in the wild, but landscape and studio photographers will be using them. If the price point is as stated, then, this permits a greater number of those people to afford to use that platform. This would have the effect of democratizing even higher image quality to even more people. It's the same argument for why they make 4k cameras and TVs as opposed to just being happy with HD, as opposed to not recognizing what's missing in just SD. One day, the quality of these images which has more to do with the physics of light and the lenses than the sensor box, will permeate our daily lives in ways we don't even think about.

Actually, this brings MF quite close to 35mm format prices for professional bodies, so yeah, it is a game changer, if these rumors are true.

nonimoose: How are you converting RAW with ACR? I haven't heard of an Adobe update for ACR or DNG Converter for the GX85.

I suspect that was a copy and paste error. I don't think the update is yet out.
