Kerensky97: Wow, now I'm really wondering why Kodak Gold has been sold out everywhere since November. How much stock was shifted away from store shelves over to Fuji to be put in a different box for this release?

In the meantime I finally got around to trying out Kodak (not really)Professional ProImage 100 film and I like it more than Kodak Gold anyway. Less of the 90's holiday snapshots color, a bit more natural saturation without a smooth even grain. Plus it's cheap film to boot.
Very usable for people who scan negatives rather than make prints.

yes, I also had the impression that shooting at ISO100 had the Pro Image overexposed. First roll I ever tested in my Contax T and I was like "this Contax can't meter!" but it turns out it was the film stock :)

the sun played a trick on the autofocus system.. nothing is in focus and diffraction will not make is so blurry

Looks like a selfie and probably due to some shake - he exposed it at f/4.8 instead of f/8 for all the other photos ;)

ennui101: Some of the pictures are seriously lacking in contrast. But that is the lens, not the camera, in all likelihood.

Looking through the images, its clear that 50mm 1.8D lacks contrast but also 35mm 2.0D is even worse. However 35mm 1.8G is another story... seems amazing to me.

Sacher Khoudari: Will the lens be able to resolve all those 108 MP? Especially when taking into account the diffraction of such a small lens.

Nowadays, smartphone cameras are already diffraction limited, they cannot reach the advertised 12 - 20 MP.
https://www.zdnet.com/article/smartphone-camera-performance-what-does-the-sensors-megapixel-count-really-tell-you/

So will Samsung introduce a much much bigger lens to compensate? Or will they continue to supersample an already blurry image?

Is diffraction really that limiting?

My LG V30 has a 4.03mm lens with f/1.6 fixed aperture. For sure the 16MP in my LG V30 gives plenty more detail (at least in good light) than Samsung S10 (12MP and killed by massive NR).

The sensor in LG V30 is a 1/3" size. So with a 1/1.5" sensor, you would use maybe a ~6mm. If the lens was f2.0 or close diffraction would be even less of a problem.

I remember my Samsung S6 with 16MP sensor like 5 years ago. For sure it had heavy NR as well but way better details than Samsung S8, S9, S10.

Are they trolling me? I want more details - not lower noise.

90% of images are taken in good light, 10% of images are taken in lowlight where S10 would be in the lead.

Marionez: Currently I'm using Nex-5 and consider buying Nex-7. I see a lot of contrary opinions and the more I read the harder is to make a decision:)

@rokkorman - The NEX-7 may have higher magnification than A6300 (which I later owned) but the shadow range/coverage is awful on NEX-7 whereas the A6300 is just as good as A7 series cameras. Also colours/contrast does not match the real captured image. Unfortunately both my NEX-7 and A6300 are now sold so I cannot double check these things.
The viewfinder of the NEX-7 was similar to that of the RX1R 1.0 (optional detachable VF). When I bought my A7R and later A7RII there was a huge improvement against NEX-7 or RX1R.

NEX-7 was a cool and highly impressive camera when it came out. Today its really only interesting if you're on a really tight budget (say $150-200 together with a 18-55mm lens) otherwise its time to put the NEX-7 on the history shelf :)

Looks like the ultra-wide lens is focused at closer distances. This looks really good. Also colours, dynamic range and exposure is spot on.

So cool to have ultra-wide in your pocket all the time :)

the noise reduction looks harscher than on my V30. Too bad, detail is gone and only 12MP to start with (V30 has 16MP)

quite noisy, but dynamic range is really quite good for a stitched image

That stiching sucks. Wish LG was as good as Samsung when stitching

ouch, infinity focus on the super-wide takes a hit. Looks like they put focus at midrange distances. This looks quite OOF to me.

My V30 has 16MP on the main sensor, much more detail than this. Why downgrade? My 16MP shooter has good lowlight capabilities too... so why?

Justin9999: Crisp eyelashes for an ISO 5,000 image!

And because 18-135 is a sharp lens. I have it on my A6300, such a nice little super-zoomer.
