silentstorm: Sorry I'm confused with the 1st para on pg 8:

"The a1 uses the same 9.44M dot OLED viewfinder that we first saw in the a7S III. This offers a resolution of up to 2048 x 1536 pixels"

2048 x 1536 pixels is only about 3.15MP or dots. Where do you get 9.44M dots?

Also I see "BRK" on the mode dial on pg14. Does it mean we now have focus bracketing in camera? Or just normal exposure bracketing?

@silentstorm:
Most commonly used OLED panels are RGB or RGBW thus creating one color "dot" from 3 or 4 pixels.

On article Video: How scratch-proof is a Sony a6000 image sensor? (183 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kinematic Digit: The only thing I cringed at was that the sensor was not in the park position when he was cleaning it. Sony recommends that you use the clean mode that actively parks the sensor so you can use a swab and not damage the IBIS unit.

http://support.d-imaging.sony.co.jp/www/support/ilc/sensor/en.html

Following the link you have provided - there's nothing about park position, swabs and not even brushes that are used to dust off the camera sensor (only the lenses).
Basically Sony says: never touch the sensor area, contact Sony if cleaning with the blower doesn't help.

(unknown member): I have two sf-g cards and none of them have that star mark. Sigh...

Check the letterng then, dpreview article got it pretty mixed.
SF-G TR or star - not affected.
SF-G TV and no star - affected.

At least that's what the official advisory page says.

mxx: I'm waiting for "The Resurrection of Kodachrome"

'Kodachrome Strikes Back' sounds about right to me.

Raist3d: if fuji makes more small primes i may go back to them

Rod, I can agree on a longer lens like 90mm to be smaller.
As for the other ones we have fairly compact and excellent 14mm (I know that it is 2mm wider than the 16mm but still), very compact X100 with its excellent and bright 23mm lens and 60mm macro that is very small compared to 56mm (and I consider it a better lens than 56mm apart of f/1.2 anyway).

On article Fujifilm offers silver X-T1 and firmware update (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

Absolutic: Fujirumors site confirms that existing users of black XT1 will also get 1/32000 and electronic shutter via firmware. Can you guys at dpreview confirm it through FUJI? It is not clear from the release. It is very important, as it is one area where I constantly run into issues with fast Fuji lenses and 1/4000 shutter speed on my XT1.

Rolling shutter controls the exposure, not freezes the moment. It means that only one portion of the sensor is exposed at 1/32000s at a time, readout of the whole frame may take up to for example 1/40s

for the sake of example - imagine that sensor is read one line at a time.
First line is read at 1/32000s, then a second line is read in another 1/32000s and so on until the whole frame is read.

Of course it's gross oversimplification.

Yes, the features that black X-T1 would get in addition to the list above:

- classic chrome film simulation
- "raw" view mode in viewfinder
- 1/32000 electronic shutter speed

Be advised that electronic shutter cannot be used with fast moving subjects (rolling shutter) and no flash is available when you use it.

Bob Meyer: "Affordable flagship?" More like stolidly mid-range, at a higher than mid-range price. No wonder Microsoft doesn't want to talk about the specs. 720P on a 5" screen is pretty poor, as is 1 GB of RAM.

If this is Microsoft's flagship, I shudder to think what their mid and low-end phones look like.

But yes, of course, calling it a flagship is an exaggeration.
It's just a solid mid-range.

The current flagships are 930/Icon and 1520.

While 720p is certainly mid-range - 1GB of RAM is more than enough on Windows Phone, it's not Android with the Samsung's bloatware that can lag with Snapdragon 801 and 3GB of RAM.

Henrik Herranen: I am confused.
Why would Nokia introduce new Lumias now, half a year after its phone division sales to Microsoft has been finalized? Or is it Microsoft who has released a new mobile phone under the label "Nokia Lumia"? Or something else that I don't understand?
(Just in case it looks like it:) I'm not trying to be a wiseass; this is an honest question.

IFA at Berlin, not IPA of course.

As for owning the company - technically Nokia is not owned by Microsoft, Microsoft only bought their handsets division, not the whole company and licensed the brands usage from them for some time.

Nokia still exists and is doing just fine with their other businesses.

blue hour: 1/3.4-inch CMOS sensor

- extra tiny sensor.

Yes, all this marketing talk about PureView, ZEISS optics, f/2.2, OIS etc. and in the end you end up with 1/3.4" sensor, pretty disappointing.

It is Microsoft who introduced these phones at IPA in Berlin.
They still have a license to use NOKIA brand for their phones and MS owns Lumia trademark.

I guess it's for the best because Nokia is widely recognized for their phones and "Microsoft Lumia 830" doesn't sound as good.
