Roland Karlsson: I have two technical questions regarding this thing. I wonder if anyone knows.

1. Are the sensors full color sensors, e.g. Bayer? Or - are they one color each?
2. Are all modules pointing forward? Or - can you stitch?

The images overlap as discussed in the video.

1. Apparently some are Bayer and some are panchromatic, for luminance only, and thus capture 3x the light of Bayer. They have not said yet how many of each. Discussed here at 36min:

2. All forward it seems.

noisephotographer: According to the user guide you can not choose different shutter speeds for the module groups. This could be a major problem. When you shoot at 28mm, you would need a shutter speed of at least 1/28s for the 28mm module group and 1/70s for the 70mm module group, but apparently you can not do this. So probably you have to choose at least 1/70s for the best sharpness at 28mm.

Yes, it would likely be 1/70s or faster. There is the possibility of IS though, maybe to be available when the video capability is added, using a grip, as described at 50:10 here: https://spot.light.co/the-l16-under-the-hood/

Jim144: I disagree with those who think Jeff's reviews are suitable to be published here. The two sites are completely different, and I don't think that DPR's reviews and conclusions should be confused by the addition of non-standard testing. Jeff, I'll always continue to read your reviews on DCRes, but I value more the consistency of reviews on both your site and this one. I would much prefer the sites remained distinct.

I agree with you. Jeff's reviews have always had a quite different approach to DPR's and they should remain separate. I can't see any point in just repeating verbatim a review that was published elsewhere and adding a score to it. In that case why not simply provide the link to Jeff's review and save the trouble of copying it? Publishing the same review on different sites is not really helping anyone.
