Yes use the angry photographer as a reference, such an unbiased and good photographer. He definitely knows how to use a camera, look as his beautiful samples :)

DPPMetro: Another ad for a kickstarter?

As a rule, I no longer bother with Kickstarters and crowdfunding because all of the outright scams, disappointments, and frauds lurking around there.

Most of the issues are not related to scams, are related to people not doing a thorough risk assessment. And yes nothing is risk free, so whoever is planning to put money on a kickstarter campaign and is thinking it will go 100%, has never worked in anything related to development or projects...

maxnimo: Nice, but this article would be more useful if it explained how I can get to Jupiter, the best camera to take with me, and what to wear.

@Angular wisely said. And weight won't be even an issue, because of lack gravity all of those G master lenses will feel like turkey mirroreles lenses :)

Don't take a Sony, batteries won't even make it to Europa. You will need quite a of them to make it through all your trip.

Pitchertaker: #1Probably shot in Venice, California. Other than this, the rest appear to be international images, which will cost you, in addition to the plane flight, the hotel stay, cab or car-rental fee, food, water, payments for models, etc., or roughly $3000 per shot

#6 Likely unobtainium if you don't happen to be Muslim.

Galápagos Archipelago as a destination for the winner? A superior landscape/nature location if lizards, turtles, seagulls and other marine birds turn you on.

I liked #4 most because it creates the illusion that you're the one riding in the cab taking the shot.

Images created in the USA seem to be put down as they were inferior?
What???? Yes America is bad, is the reason for all evil In the world, that's why American images are not taken seriously :( (I am trollling a bit :) )

3k per shot? Cuba is expensive but not 3k, traveling is not cheap, but it does y necessary have to be expensive. Don't be angry cause you cannot travel and others can :)

Mais78: Number 7 is a great lesson in how to build a story out of nothing. Caption could have said: this lady in Havana makes money by being photographed by tourists dressed up in traditional attire, so like any other I paid and took a shot of her.

Hahah maybe it's a story about how tourists get ripped of in Cuba :)

Nikon Guy UK: 3 minutes to clear the buffer on this bad boy!! LMAO!!! A DSLR killer I think not!

Announcer at 2020 Olympics: "All events are temporarily on hold for 3 minutes. There is a Sony photographer clearing his buffer!!"

@Rubberdials, yes indeed he is a reliable reviewer. But he seems to be the only one talking about that short time. The rest are saying at least 2 min, and by the rest I mean all the other reviewers which are not Sony artisians. Something seems to be sketchy.

I am no sport shooter, so I am usually at finger speed :) but really how can the Sony be considered a nikon/canon killer when it takes 3 min to clear the buffer and the canikon takes circa 4 seconds or less.

Yes 200 shots is a lot, but still it's not all bells and whistles as many are saying. That look a like a real blocker for someone to move into Sony l, besides the lenses.

idefixx: Dpreview is making less and less efforts of hiding its nature as a PR platform

I think Fujica shoots with a black box camera made of recycle paper, and his images are embedded on his memories, no need to use film nor waste on chemicals to develop, only the chemicals he sniffs...

Superka: Digital all look almost the same. Nothing interesting. My Panasonic LX100 is even better! https://www.flickr.com/photos/superka_01/

Hasselblad was much better when using film.

Not sure were you are looking or how you are looking, but is not comparable , (some of them at least). By the way were are your pictures taken? Looks very much like Bucharest in some places. Thanks!

They don't produce them, it's what's left form that era.

Those are nice tips if you want to shoot what everyone does. Not bad in doing tourism, but is not what I will call photography tips. And yes if you go to those places be prepare to pay a couple of dollars for every portrait you take.

And yes those pictures of the old wrinkle woman with a cigar is not day to day people is for tourists :)

Robert Evagelista: It is a good sign more and more Photographers penetrate the Management.
This surely be helpful to the Company As engineers (I am also an Engineer ) can loose perspective on what the purpose of the product.

He is like an engineer with phd in physics or something like that.

He is actually a manager that got into photography, look at his credentials.

I don't need this camera, but bundle it with the 20-40mm and it will be a wonderful portable kit :) GAS always coming when you least expect it :)

In reply to:

The Name is Bond: I try to shoot for the crop. And so...

I would have been a 50mm guy too, but with high-rez and low-noise sensors these days, I think a large aperture 35mm is a sensible choice.

I would even choose a 28mm if I could only get bokeh out of it (enough bokeh, that is). So for now it's a 35 at the largest aperture that doesn't compromise IQ too much.

You can get Bokeh out of a 28mm :) you just need to shoot wide open and not that far from the subject :)

In reply to:

Terry Breedlove: Never makes sense to me when you buy such and expensive camera and then pair with such and expensive lens. To get such poor images. Why not just go to a flea market or yard sale and buy on of those first generation Kodak point and shoots. Save your money for a really nice trip to some place exotic and take horrible pictures while there.

By the way, i am Leica user, and will never even think about buying this lense, i found it stupid, but respect those who buy it, considering for less you can get the 28mm 2.8 elmarit which is small and has amazing image quality.
