Horshack: Walter spends 99.9% of his time thinking about the shot and 0.1% thinking about the camera. I'm the opposite. I think I have a lot to learn from Walter.

Honest and introspective comments, here? This is really refreshing!

landscaper1: A wall, traveling at a speed of 0 MPH, is unlikely to create the boundary layer of air (i.e. shock wave) that am aerodynamic design traveling even 150 MPH, to say nothing of one traveling even faster. Ergo, the test results will be meaningless.

"The test results will be meaningless" is not an opining sentence Every other part of your statement indicated that you were making an assertion rather than opining. You want to have the authoritative presentation of someone confidently stating a fact (and I bet you felt pretty dang smart typing it) while also now being able to declare yourself immune from criticism because you were only stating an opinion. These two are mutually exclusive. (Bonus tip: opinions can be wrong, too!)

I think it's also very telling that you've decided to laser focus on the word 'idiot', Landscaper, ignoring all the other valid criticism of your statement.

I actually am familiar with the cybersecurity branch of Fraunhofer through my study, and they're incredibly well-respected and well-funded, really a German powerhouse. But glad to hear Landscaper1 managed to get one up on them.

I love how someone immediately pops in here to tell the research institute that their results will be meaningless based on two paragraphs of info. I love even more that it is currently the most upvoted comment. Typical DPReview users, to be honest.

Alexis D: Just in case you think there are a lot of Olympus hater here, I would like to point out that many of those posting negatively are Olympus users. I am one. They are disillusioned Olympus users, frustrated users if not angry users. What is Olympus doing here? Where is the %$#@dy E-M5 III? That should be the flagship, a compact but high quality camera.

There exist BSI m43 sensors, they're just in video cameras (GH5s, Pocket 4K) so it's not like Sony refuses to do it.

Lee Jay: So, this pixel density the same as the 80D - 24MP on 1.6-crop. So, this is just a full-frame version of the 80D sensor like the 5Ds has a full-frame version of the 20MP 1.6-crop sensor in the 7DII.

This camera would only be interesting to me if it had a 10fps or above 1.6-crop mode like my 7D II has, and an EVF that was about 100 times better than the one in the R, which is awful.

What? I've had the R to my eye a few times and the EVF seems amazing compared to my A7R II (which is a camera I like a lot). What do you dislike about it?

"Even" prostitutes? I'd hope *especially* prostitutes get paid for the work they have to do.

All the skin tones on the RP (and to a lesser extent, the R) looks greenish on my monitor, all the other Canon cameras (6dII/5d mark IV/M50) look lovely. What's going on there?

In reply to:

Croninfilm: Having your own raw format is great, but I don't think removing CinemaDNG was the right move...I mean that is THE universal raw format for cinema cameras.

Word on the grapevine is that they removed it because RED is suing everyone who uses their own compressed raw formats (which Blackmagic has with CDNG 3:1 and 5:1).

Jonathan F/2: I'll wait for reviews on this lens before passing judgement. Sigma primes are top notch, but they seem to have a problem designing the fundamental 2.8 zooms.

I mean they also make the 18-35 1.8, which is literally sharper than most sub-800 dollar primes out there.

Hubertus Bigend: Did I understand the bloke right when he said there is a FOUR THIRDS sensor with 47.7 megapixels and global shutter?

4:3, not four-thirds.

Link | Posted on Nov 6, 2018 at 19:00 UTC

Oof, this is what happens when camera designers prioritize resolution over everything else. Weird colors and non-existent dynamic range. How is this going to compete with the Blackmagics in that price class? You have to admit people trying to broaden the budget-cinema market, though.

marcio_napoli: This is it.

Z6 + Atomos V is officially Hollywood level IQ at yours hands.

Absolutely mind blowing to think you can have Hollywood's IQ for less than 3 thousand dollars.

Mind blowing is a gigantic, MASSIVE understatement.

Of course, having the gear is one thing. Having the talent, subjects, production value, etc, is entirely another.

Gear means nothing without amazing content to shoot.

You can have a 150 mp Phase One. Without the right subject, production value and talent, it will produce amazingly boring backyard images.

Anyway, mind blowing to have access to Hollywood's IQ without necessarily being Steven Spielberg.

I mean the Pocket 4k will do all this internally (and more with the BMRAW coming out) for 1295...

Honestly, with these skin tones the camera has a gigantic problem and that is the pictures don't look flattering right out of the box in many circumstances. People mostly don't care about the extra dynamic range while people will definitely notice when faces have a dead, flat look. And these are pictures that are meant to be shared instantly, the vast, vast majority of users aren't going to take the images back home and edit them.

This camera is an amazing feat of engineering (the real-time stacking blows my mind to be honest), but how they couldn't get that part right is a big letdown.

In reply to:

AKH: "F4 aperture (in 35mm terms) limits its usefulness for low light photography".

Not sure why you say that? It is an f/2.8 lens, so if you set it to f/2.8 it will need the same shutter/ISO combination as any other camera set to f/2.8, no matter the sensor size.

The camera looks great, but the price is horrendous for an APS-C camera.

Right Kociasek, the depth-of-field will be f4 equivalent, but the light it gathers will be 2.8 equivalent.

Cerf Vola: This looks like a fun camera. The key word in that sentence is "fun". Though the target market is not your average dpreview denizen, it could be a fun creative exercise for those who, like me, can become a little obsessed with "optimal" image quality. You know who you are. Do you also feel uncomfortable shooting jpeg rather than raw, even for a couple photos? Do you habitually check focus after pretty much every shot? Do you obsess over keeping highlights intact and recoverable? Hey, it might be fun to loosen up and just snap some pics with this thing. Even if you carry it alongside another "serious" camera. At $124, it's cheaper than the l-plate on my D810. Would I ever use the Y35 as my only camera? No. That doesn't mean it doesn't look fun.

I like the attitude
