Fantastic! I'd be interested in learning more about the technical side, for instance, what type of lighting was used, polarizing filters, etc.

Seems to me that it's quite possible the poster simply misunderstood the requirements, and thought it was supposed to be a photo OF a film camera.

In any case, it's a lovely photo.

Kudos to Barney Britton for his excellent series of photos amply demonstrating the capabilities of this interesting new addition to the 1" sensor enthusiast oriented category.

While this camera tops the list as far as price goes for this type of camera, it sure looks like it's delivering something in return. It's amazing how quickly technology is progressing. Bravo Sony.

That is a lovely image. The way the lines flow through simply draw you into it. Quite nice processing too.

A big tip of the hat to the team at LensRentals for documenting and sharing that teardown.

And an even bigger tip of the hat to the Canon engineers for over engineering their lens, and in doing so raising the bar for other manufacturers to follow. Well done Canon!

Jorginho, post processing typically comes down to a matter of degree.

Personally, I felt the processing was beautifully done with this image, and helped emphasize the dramatic feeling of the scene. But that is me.

I think it's rather exciting and look forward to seeing what they've come up with.

I'll leave it to others to examine the quality of the lens, but I certainly enjoyed the very lovely set of images. Well done.

RollPoll took the words right out of my mouth, a frank, refreshing, no B.S. interview. Thanks Victoria, and a big well done to the folks who shot it.

An extremely worthwhile watch for any photographer who's trying to find their "voice".
