snapa: Why was this picture taken at f22? I'd really like to know, mabe can can learn something I don't know. I always thought defraction reduces IQ/sharpness at that level.

I think most people didn't get the joke

db.: Now imagine how wonderful this would be if you—even if unable to write an attractive title—at least told us where this church stands...

I was curious as well and had to google with the image, but apparently this is in Mtskheta, Georgia, the one next to Russia.

Stefanos T: What exactly could learn a (willing to learn) beginner, about photography, with a camera like (for example Sony a5100) ? Ok, "set everything in auto and shoot". Then what is the difference from a smartphone? Hmmm...

Also a beginner with the A5100 will be able to buy virtually any lens ever made and adapt it to E-mount and experiment cheaply with decent lenses.
You can't do that with a DSLR, especially the Cannons that abandoned their previous FDn mount at one point.

A beginner is way better with a mirror-less like the A5100, than a flappy entry-level DSLR. It always operates in live view mode, so you can directly see the effect of changing aperture, shutter speed, iso, etc.
You will learn much quicker than a DSLR with an OVF where a beginner you have to check exposure after each shot hitting play, then back to shooting.
Just set it in full manual and learn.

On article Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV review (535 comments in total)
In reply to:

Melchiorum: How to comment on DPR:

1. Find a review of the new product.
2. Study the specs and features offered by the product.
3. Think of a feature that the camera does not have. Don't worry about trivialities like camera cost, size, technical limitations.
4. Go into a comments and tell everyone how great the product would be and how you would totally buy it if only it had that missing feature (you may also throw in sensor size into the mix. Everyone knows sensors aren't ever large enough, so your argument will be valid no matter what).

There! You are now a highly liked DPR commenter, congratulations!

No EVF no buy .... oh wait

In reply to:

Amnon G: Did you notice the weird texture in the left eye of the model in the 3rd image? Looks very processed.
Also look at the right eye in photo #6.
I have never seen humans with patterns like this.

So this is over processing or we found the way to identify replicants ;-P

Anyway, on imaging-resource they had a comparison with Canikon and you can see the pattern on the other ones as well

SmilerGrogan: Hopefully this will scare Canon and Nikon off their butts to start really doing something in the cinema space with their DSLRs. Right now they treat us like children who can't be trusted with ProRes or 4:2:2 color.

Nope, they are treating their customers like cash-cows and they will continue doing so until there is milk coming out.

DJI will probably make a FF mirror-less before Canon and Nikon :)

So Eye-AF now works with Canon lenses.

At this point I think Canon should start buying Sony A9 bodies, change their mount to EF, slap Canon badge on the front and resell as their own :)

I was hoping for a waterproof RX100 model, and although this is not quite it, this can be a replacement, with some interesting features. And supposedly it can take some punishment on top of that.

The majority of waterproof cameras on the market (Nikon AW, Ricoh WG, Oly TG) have tiny 1/2.3" or even 1/3" sensor.

Are they going to share the source code with me, or am I supposed to buy this thing and reverse-engineer ?

Canon launches a trio of tilt-shift lenses ... for their Sony e-mount users.

In reply to:

Beckler8: For spaceflight where mass and volume are always critical, you would have thought they'd go mirrorless. Maybe they too realize that while a bit better than a7, the a9 still has bad ergonomics compared to DSLRs like this. I'm not knocking either system just saying sony's minimalist design in a *camera* of all things is absurd.

Indeed, the cost of lifting 1kg to Space Station orbit is in the order of tens of thousands $, so minimising the weight will make a lot of sense.

But there are more factors, maybe NASA already have custom made F-mount glass, which could be insanely expensive to produce in small numbers.

Also they probably already have a ton of F-mount glass in orbit, so they are now only upgrading the bodies.

They might also have other hardware made to work with Nikon cameras, enclosures, etc.

It would be hilarious if a soviet-era Russian company beats Canon and Nikon to the full frame mirror-less camera market :)

They should make it E-mount id possible :)

This camera looks like someone's phone that was shot multiple times with 9mm and .22 rounds.

In reply to:

armandino: So basically, if you are using this cam as a photographic too the much older D750 beats the hell out of it, if you use it for video there are better tools.
However if you are satisfied by a well rounded, well built DULL camera you are welcome to overpay Canon.

@vscd
yes, it's always the engineers' fault. It doesn't matter, that the features and timeline are selected by the marketing people and company management.

It's the engineers that spend the money and have the difficult task to marry the cold laws of physics and the ambitions of management/marketing, that is not always possible. So it's always engineers' fault if a project fails.

But if a project succeeds, it's success for the marketing and management and they collect the rewards, because they brought a lot of money in.

Talking about fairness ...

In reply to:

Dante Birchen: Mirrorless redefined? It's a box with a mount and and a sensor in it and a screen and evf on the back with a bunch of buttons and dials. Nothing new. Mirrorless improved. Advancements come from sensor improvements (stacked) and increased processing power and a big battery to power it all.

Nope, the camera took his GF ;p
