princecody: The new micro four thirds replacement?

Rcl100, phone sensors are TINY compared to a micro four thirds sensor and telephoto lenses on phones are much slower than f/1.8. Also, the "speed" of the lens is relative to sensor size. On the matter, I highly recommend reading for example this: https://www.dpreview.com/learn/2799100497/equivalence-in-a-nutshell

For casual snaps, sure. For photography, no. I'm a u43 user (and a FF user among other formats) and even this phone definitely does not replace a micro four thirds camera. Phones don't have control wheels and buttons, RAW, different lenses - 45/1.8, macro, wide angle zooms etc etc that cameras do.

Argh, I can't see the point of the gallery feature when "No comments have been written yet. Be the first to write one!" takes up a third of the screen when selecting "fullscreen"... :/ Why isn't there a *real* fullscreen option?

In reply to:

mosc: I would speculate a black and white sensor ~25mm lens, a conventional sensor ~25mm lens, and a ~50mm conventional "telephoto" module.

That seems likely, since Huawei traditionally combines b&w and color sensor. That would also be extremely boring. I see absolutely no real benefit with the b&w sensor. What I would like to see, is three lenses for different focal lenghts - a wide angle, standard and telephoto. *that* would be something I would get excited about.

On article Sony a7 III sample gallery (554 comments in total)

I had already placed a pre-order, but seeing this banding, I could never buy the camera - and neither should anyone else - before it is fixed. Frankly, I'm amazed that nobody at Sony made a note about the problem before the camera was announced.

Quite a shame, as I've been waiting for this camera for four long years! Minus the banding, it's the camera of my dreams. But that much of a banding is just way too visible not to be a problem.

micaelwidell: I am excited about this, not because of the Sony A7Riii itself, but because it should mean that the non-R A7iii will be announced very soon. I hope that the A7iii has everything that its predecessor has, plus really good video performance. That would be a dream camera to me. I don't need nor want more than 24 megapixels, and I am not comfortable walking around with a camera as expensive as the A7Riii.

I am also waiting for the non-r A7III. I just really hope it has an *AF system* that's as good as the one on the A7r III.

In reply to:

Menneisyys: "New to the a7R III is a multi-shot resolution mode that, much like the system in recent Pentax DSLRs, shoots four images and moves the sensor between each shot, so that each pixel position in the final image is captured with a red, a blue and two green pixels."

WOW! AT last! This is what I've been waiting for! Goodbye (company) K-1 and (private) Sigma Foveon!

it doesn't sound that practical...
"However, unlike the system Pentax uses or the earlier, 8-shot process used by Olympus, the a7R III cannot assemble the final images in-camera. Instead four Raw files must be processed using a freely downloadable image processing application for PCs that Sony will offer. The camera must also wait either 0.5, 1, or 2 seconds between shots for the sensor to settle, which is likely to exacerbate the problems of subject movement between the first and last shot."

I am more eagerly waiting for the A7III.

I put my EM-10 mark II on the scales with the minuscule panasonic 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6. Thiscombination weighed 469g. So the GX 1m II is 70g lighter - that' pretty darn compact for an APS-C compact with s faster lens (in comparison to u43)

Oh, wow.... How is it even possible for a company like Nikon to make such an amateur mistake and miscalculate development costs? This is pretty much unheard of and I'm sure there is more to the story. More like there was a grave design error that was found too late and was too costly and time consuming to fix. Anyway, this is going to cost Nikon a lot as bad PR.

Such a shame. I have not waited for a camera so eagerly as for the DL series in ages. We would have finally seen some actual competition for the Sony RX-cameras, which have grown to be horribly over priced and frankly boring.

barrym1966: Looking at the sample photos on my phone, doesn't look like anything a phone camera can't do

None of the new camera phones can produce anything remotely similar to the indoor photos taken at ISO 1000 +. Also, I repeat: zoom lens 24-70/1.8-2.8.

Just to tell you a few really obvious differences:
- the camera has a zoom lens which starts at 24mm equivalent.
- a 1" sensor camera has a way better dynamic range.
- a camera like this can also achieve much narrower DOF than a phone camera.
- with an EVF you can shoot in bright conditions easily.
- etc

FLruckas: Be careful.

You might get blacklisted from Canon like Luminous Landscape did.

Canon is milking other technology cows.

Mirrorless is a goat to them.

If any goat was offended by my comment, my apologies.

:-)

Good thing Dpreview is too big to be blacklisted.

On article Samyang teases 'summer blockbuster' lens announcements (124 comments in total)
In reply to:

AprilW: Looks like a macro, two telephoto, and two wide-ish (maybe standard) lenses.

Looking at the pictures (and the time of day in them), I would decipher that the first one is a lens with a very large aperture for night time photography and the last is a wide angle + large aperture for astro photography?

In reply to:

Aroart: This is going to sell like hotcakes... Nice to see it at a decent price....

I would think that pricing is irrelevant to people who bought the camera at $3000 and lenses at ~$1000-1500 a piece.... It doesn't matter if it's $250 or $450 :D

In reply to:

endofoto: Olympus has just killed those 1'' sensor point and shoot like too expensive cameras with pen-F. D500 wont sell much although it is very good. Bec you have D7200 for birding. Pros wont use it for other purposes than birding. Pros will buy an extra D750 to carry to weddings instead of D500. If D500 was a fullframe it would sell enormously but it would kill D750. This is a show business to prove that I can do what Canon can do or cant do. For birding pros are changing to 3/4 systems, bec the long lenses are very small and you dont get neck disk hernia. Nikon has to produce a new mirrorless full frame, cheap and low weight around 1300 bucks to kill its rivals especially Sony.

@ScanSpeak
Perhaps you should read more carefully? My response was to endofotos comment "Olympus has just killed those 1'' sensor point and shoot like too expensive cameras with pen-F".

Fitted with an equivalent lens, the Pen-F is over 3x as expensive and 3x as large as the DL 24-85 and there is no lens that would match the DL 18-50.

In reply to:

Dimit: The 18-50 compared to the other two,will sell 10:1 !!!

I don't know. The 24-85 is very interesting I expect image quality to be top notch and 1:1 macro at 35mm equivalent is something you won't find in any other camera - that's definitely of interest to me.

Anyway, all of the three cameras are very interesting. Worthy competition to the Sony RX100 series. Controls seem a lot better on the Nikon.

ozturert: Nice camera. Nice AF system, good specs. Will sell a lot.

Such wow. But seriously, I'm waiting for a decent mirrorless camera from canon with features on the level of the 80D. Then I'd be very interested. Just don't forget to include a good EVF.

DPNick: Wow, so DPReview has now turned into a rumor mongering site. Great. First it turned into Pop Photo 24/7 with the daily "news", never ending Roundups to churn sales, easily digestible Olympic medal ratings, and links to resellers, but now they're publishing rumors. And then retracting them. What next, DPReview life insurance?

...perhaps you should delve a bit into the matter before commenting. Basically everyone has been talking about this before dpreview. Take a look at samsung forum for more info.
