Is that footage from viewfinder or maybe back lcd screen (they do have lag you know)? Is it so hard to show actual video from camera and review with all red lines and all that?
Again same problem as af "testing". Make some standardized environment, where real comparison could be made. Which you could include now in the test, by the way, not just put another canon camera next to it.

Ran Plett: I like the nice studio photos. My question is, did you guys shoot this near a window, or did you put a gel over one of the strobes? It seems that there is a subtle bluish tint coming in from the right side of the frame, mostly evident in the shadows underneath the cameras.

Here you go. I think Amazon, sorry Dpreview could afford some reliable set up (and poeple, who can use it right) for testing, if they want to be called no1 site for photo gear reviews (which as true in old days). Same goes for af testing etc etc..

Long story short, imho: if you want no nonsense anc complete package for amateur and semi pro stuff video /stills, 80d even with lack of 4k is still no#1 to pick (cheap and good stm lenses, where only then your realls use 100% advanced af in video, flashes etc etc). if you want max. autput from sensor, play with manual lenses, rails, pro production, sony's are maybe better catch. Silly enough, it's not so rare when situation is reversed, so..

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2652 comments in total)
In reply to:

me_tarzan: I've had the K10, K7, K5, K3 and just recently, I bought the K1.
It's no surprise to say the K1 is the best. What is surprising is by how much.
The thing that no-one seems to be commenting on is the overall apearance of the K1's photographs. The K1's pictures look like LARGE format film, ie 4"x5". To say that it's as good as medium format film would be unfair - it blows my Rollreiflex's results out of the water.

Am going to stop film photography? - No but that's because silver imaging serves other purposes for me. What would I use if I wanted to get the best possible portrait, low light shot or landscape picture? - This e
K1, every time.
It is truly fantastic and never fails to leave me in awe of its capabilities. Expensive Nikons and Canons are better for shooting a racing cars. I don't do that kind of photography. For *everything* else, the K1 is your best best.

i would jump without hesitations (k1 suits my needs very nice), but pentax gear (lenses, flashes etc, ) are not that common here. can't use adapters too much, also (this is where sony or canon shines, at prices too, at least some used canon gear)..
when you buying photo camera, you buying wholw system. maybe with new cameras pentax will expand market..

Joe Ogiba: Get the lower cost Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS Lens and raise the iso one stop.

eazizisaid, that's maybe correct under same conditions, but tracking is really really light hungry (and you cant really overpass that by raising isos, so faster lens is always plus for that). also, this s what dpreview is forgetting, when they testing af in shadow/bright sun conditions etc..

well, for sure i like flash more than mini gun on the drone.

FantasticMrFox: And once the S8 comes out my S2 and I will be six generations behind :D

My S2 also still going strong, but screen is busted (flat drop on tiles), so lurking for something new. Not sure for high price of s series though. Some A model with oled screen (which is basically most important feature on smartphone) will do just fine, i think.
What's about this dual lens thing, for af, vr, what? For my work, i would prefer accurate 3d lidar scanner much more, hope this Tango thing will become something serious in the future,,

mr.izo: Well, 1k for aps, that dont' well video, high isos etc, drain power like hell it's not really bargain, i would say. And what's with this body design, sigma? I general like finish and techno look, but why narrowed height, where you need it most? Not to mention their angled stuff on previous models, crazy and stupid..
I understand that selling bodies is more epp than real businesses for sigma, but still.. Sensor is nice (if they get colours right), no doubt about that, but otherwise, sigma really have to change something, if they're serious about being true competitive company also on field of cameras.

edit: ups, didn't catch that they will ad 30/1.4 lens along. that's one move in right direction, but my comment about other stuff still stands

i try it, that's why i know all cons and pros of foveon etc..

On article Lenovo Phab2 Pro is the first Project Tango phone (29 comments in total)

tango project (and many other similiar) is very interesting and useful technology that is beyond just taking snap photos etc. to have option to scan objects/surroundings in 3d is great, from medicine, mechanics, architecture (that i'm most interested in), list go on..
for example, if my phone will be accurate enough, to substitute classical laser rangefinder and tape measure, i'm in. that kind of technology was expensive as hell not too long ago.
now, snap that phone on some cheap drone, put it on auto scan mode, so it fly thru object, while i'm sipping cold drink nearby, that would be something. under 1k even less..

JimiV: Anyone who things thinks Google street view is some wonderful boost for terrorists or burglars is kidding themselves. They show nothing more than anyone would see driving by the house or building. Something anyone can do.

Do they think terrorists are thinking "Gee, I really want to bomb xxx, but damn, it means I have to drive there and look."
Or that burglars who are going to rob a house are going to depend on what can be seen in a photo months old?

well, i'm sure you'll have most problems taking pictures of somebody's house in biggest "democratic" country. try it some day, and do wear bulletproof west.

What of google/nsa is "terorist" here? and it does helps burglars too, that's in no secret, it happens. Google street maps were down in Austria, Germany etc in main routes, that leads Sirian imigrants from Turkey marching to EU. So it is security/ defence related and of course Google is mapping photos in much bigger resolution for "defense" purposes, which again is on the edge.

While i'm not not 100% against google, they should ask for permit (at least at state level, if not personal) before just start taking photos. Google was once already violating author rights while scanning books without any agreement, not forget that.

edit: let me put this way: of i would stop in front your house and start taking pictures, everybody will make big deal from it, if this was done by google, everything is ok?

Michael Ma: Don't tell me it's an Active without swappable batteries.

It's not about swaping, it's about not to have option hard reseting the phone or god forbid, change with some noname one, when it's gone. Same goes for all phones lately..

In reply to:

User9362470513: Or alternatively you could buy a Sigma camera with a Foveon sensor and you'd get better resolution without any of the hassle.

foveon is great in details, but fails in high isos, videos and power drain.
k1 looking very nice for studio/landscape/architecture work.

mr.izo: d5 look lik a fine camera, no doubt, but what is happening here:
http://shrani.si/f/h/q/2e6IIAEw/dr.jpg

nikon downgrading its famous dr latitude, while canon is significantly better?

well, i was talking about shadow pushing etc, which are sony/nikon sensors famous for, not specific dr range (which is not exactly the same, if i'm not mistaken). i do belive that d5 is iso monster and all that, but i was just little bit surprised by that kind of difference towards let say other, non "sport" models.
i did same on canon side (comparing it let say 6d) and there is clearly progress been done, even if it's "high iso camera". nice to see canon is waking up in this area, that's all.

p.s.: but realy strike me is shadow response from that pentax k1. practically without any big problems even with 6 stops pull?? that's crazy. makes me wonder about testing technique, but i guess everything is done right..

wow, pentax does look good.
http://shrani.si/f/2Y/11y/3jTU5QgI/dr-02.jpg

but nice to see canon is getting better, while comparing tol let say 6d etc. still some grain (but it is 6 stops after all), bit no more red blotches, loosing colours and all that.

VR is or will be big in architecture/construction, where you can see on site, how finished project will look like etc. Coming from automotive industry, where they use vr (a long time now, beside traditional, clay technique) for interior cockpit design and other stuff.

why all the trouble? with all trends lately, they should just merge one mega giant, which will make cameras, memory, cars, phones, clothing, food etc. that's best for consumers, they say..
