mxx: I like the images very much. And good shooting, except for a few angled horizons. And who leaves their peanut debris on the floor?

Funny, never heard of this. What's the point of doing so?
The noise it produces when walking over it?

joe_leads: The images look simply oversaturated to me. Is this the magic of the „Canon colors“, or the magic of the Adobe software engineers? I can’t say it’s very pleasant to look at for me.

They are quite saturated, yes. Be aware, though, that these pics are not OOC.
It is Adobe's & Dpreview's interpretation of the RAW files.

Besides, I am sure that the camera also offers a more natural setting. It is basically a matter of taste.

wasTF: I did this over WLAN with my iPAD version 1 ! Its not usefull.

@wastf: I think, you misunderstood: This little stick does not only copy the main screen, but works as a second display.

I don't know of any solution that can do this with software alone.

Josh Leavitt: I'd love to see this tech make its way into a micro four thirds body. I'll sell off my full-frame gear in a heartbeat if the Panny G9 or an Oly E-M1 II had optional settings for HDR+, computational RAW, synthetic fill-flash, learning portrait, and Night Sight.

Computational photography certainly won't be to every photographer's liking, as it removes a great deal of direct control from the final image. But a well executed implementation into a M43 body paired with the excellent Leica Vario and Olympus PRO series glass could easily surpass modern full-frame systems in dynamic range and detail, while being half the size, half the cost, and 1/3 the weight.

I've basically said the same in the forum and hope that Olympus listens.
This is the only way how their format can stay relevant.

It would be a shame to lose m43 only because management does not see the need for better software.

bolt2014: Why?

Maybe.. because the designers are fed up with vertical videoclips.

In reply to:

noisephotographer: Dpreview, your image quality section doesn't discuss one of the most important things in my opinion: The visible(without editing!) out-of-camera jpg dynamic range! The DR Modes aren't there just to be ignored by you!

Comparisons really are quite difficult because of different lenses, angles and RAW converters.I mostly use it for judging noise. For colors and sharpness it is not very useful, imo.
Still, the team surely puts a lot of effort in this and there simply isn't an easy way to provide perfectly comparable results over time(!).

I also think it would be useful to compare real life samples to a good smartphone. Camera manufacturers would take note, I hope, and come up with better software solutions for HDR, etc.

Good use of a 3D printer, but the fun of doing it is sure larger than the actual usefulness of the result. Besides: I would choose a red filament to match the red Leica dot. ;-)

I don't remember exactly, but I think the film cameras I used, all had a little window on the back that showed the ISO.

GrapeJam: And I still have to transfer my photos to my phone or use an android simulator that is buggy and runs like **** every time I want to upload them to instagram.

Also, no full size vertical aspect photo uploading unless I use seperated crop app.

Why do you use it at all, when it is so bad?

Not in the U.S. for sure... ;-)

Not only skin texture & tones look wrong, but also shadows and darker areas in general.
Its HDR effect is complete rubbish. Just watch the video of the unboxing guy.

Will it fit into your coat pocket then?

In reply to:

Don Mario: why, oh why, all these new full frames are so huge. give us a pocketable version, waterproof with a fixed lens (35mm please!)

I don't have exact data, but the Minox is ~3 cm deep when closed. Unfolding it adds ~1,5 cm, makes 4,5 cm, estimated. R1X is 7 cm deep.
I guess that a D-Minox would suffer from heavy vignetting not be very sharp. Even with film, the corners are very blurry. It would not offer auto-focus, either.
Sony is well known for miniaturizing everything to the max, so I don't think it will be easy to make a much smaller cam with similar specs.

Karroly: Of course I can only guess about the prices, but look at the initial price of GRii: 799€. A full frame version will easily double this with a good objective. More expensive components (esp. sensor & CPU) and less potential buyers.
Regarding a digital Minox:
Sounds nice, but would probably require a curved sensor and some very special lenses. Not to mention electronics and battery. Even if it was technically possible, it would be very expensive...

Link | Posted on Sep 29, 2018 at 07:54 UTC

Interesting idea, but for a very special target group only. Will also not be very affordable. I guess ~ 4.999€.

@witzgall, yes, crowded. How large do you think the market is for a fixed lens FF system with a price > 2.000€?

@Don: This market is already crowded with two models: Sony RX1R and Leica Q.
Of course at a premium price.
I you want something more reasonable, wait for Ricoh's new GXR. Who needs full frame anyway...

Jesse_Just_Him: m4/3 is officially dead, poor Oly~~~

Not justifiable? I don't think so. If it is the right tool with the right quality for a photographer, then it totally justifies its price. Some people need to understand that sensor size is more or less irrelevant these days. It is the whole system that counts.
