marc petzold: I had never read something on DPR against one camera system - and i do read online here since 2000, so it's being a bit over 17 (!) years. MF users haven't fast lenses all the way, there is no F/1.4 wideangle, fast telephoto, etc. lens. It's all about DoF & resolution. Pro Fashion Shooters, Professional Landscapers, and Studio Works is done with (PhaseOne & Hasselblad) MF-Systems.

Anyway, i can understand the arguments, but find it something biased against the GFX, which is the cheapest of all MF cams yet, and (slightly) better IQ than the Hasselblad X1D. The EOS 300D was also 2003 the cheapest, 1000$ APS-C DSLR.

Fujifilm would for sure develop new Lenses within time, it's a brandnew System.
2nd, i am a Nikon Fan, but can't read all time again over the MF-like ISO 64 IQ of the D810. Sorry Guys - nobody shoots/buys the D810 and shoots ISO 64 only all day.

There are professional Hasselblad MF Systems with the same 50 MP sensor - are they're all lame ducks whileas not fast enough?

There are actually fast lenses for MF, if you are bothered enough to find em. Just not native, which is hardly an issue given how GFX 50s works.

stevo23: But I can pay more for the GFX. That's something, right?

Also you can ask more for photos made with it, cause its big and unsurprisingly that still works for customers (as much as cliché heavy DoF pics do). Especially when made with MF camera.

Infared: WOW!....GREAT article!..
I had already come to a lot of those conclusions...thanks DPR for confirming them.

I am really looking forward to this:
"But remember you can emulate much of that color science in Raw converters with proper profiles (we're looking into a separate article on this)"
That is an article that I want to read!!!

If in today era you are still unable to Google "how", then you are probably lost case.

Mescalamba: It looks like Skyrim with ENB at best. Far from "photorealistic".

Also that ground texture could use much bigger resolution, better tiling and some layers.

Plus it seems choppy as hell.. (not great FPS I suppose).

No need, video was all I need. :)

On article Sony SLT a99 II Review (1557 comments in total)

Also features unavoidable RAW low-lvl noise reduction. Thanks but no thanks.

In some aspects (like 16:9, 4:3) it is still unbeaten. Also low density of sensor allowed pretty good output in various ISO.

I think that it actually holds really well even today. Might lack in various things, since its outdated, but as pure performance goes, its very good for its age.

On article CES 2017: Hands-on with the Kodak Super 8 (426 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tactical Falcon: This is a laugh at CES. With 4K video just about anywhere, and at least 1080P. Super 8 is a bit of a stretch. But I bet there will be a few who might like it. Why? I have no idea. Why do Cassettes, and Reel to Reel audio get another go round? Because people like them. Super 8? That is a tough sell for me.

Maybe they thought when Fuji Instax work so well for Fuji, they might try some of their own.

I think this is so crazy, that it either will work, or become curiosity item.

Wish they remade some instant film stuff too.. maybe even do something like 4x5" instants.

PeterFXCassidy: We want Kodachrome!

Would be pretty hard, but really wish they could do that. Color superior to everything..

In digital world, we would need to have RGB-W-CYM sensors to match it. I guess it would be maybe even easier to re-create Kodachrome. :D

Velociphile: Bring back Kodachrome more like and her magenta highlights. Never liked Ektachrome's blue delivery and lack of longevity.

Think this is like comparing bananas to apes. They do have something in common, but its not really that much.

For those wondering about super colors, its Kodak CCD with their CFA inside.. That photo of cat is nice example of their blues.

straylightrun: The sad thing is that if the NX1 had the name ‘Canon’ on the front, it would sell like hotcakes.

They have plenty of experience, but they lack marketing and good name.

Sure, they might think Samsung is a good name, when you buy a TV or smartphone.. maybe. But camera? Not really.

Very few ppl is aware they are making cameras for quite a long time now (joint venture with Pentax since 2006). But as I said, most ppl dont know that..

Link | Posted on Nov 12, 2015 at 15:30 UTC

Well, in my country (middle of EU) it never even started selling. Actually it seems like Samsung is simply leaving market here.

Kinda understandable given their marketing efforts (close to none).

In reply to:

PeaceKeeper: I'd be interested to see if any of the people who are claiming that unmistakable leica look is what makes this camera so special would have been able to pick out the leica images from a random/blind line-up.

My guess is they'd think the images were crap, and couldn't imagine they came from a Leica. They'd have disregarded them completely and chose another cameras images.

The only reason these are being defended is to spite DPRs technique and justify their irrational desire for a red dot on their camera.

I hope the this is just a bad preproduction unit.

Its tied to lens, not camera.

Reason why many use Leica M and R lenses on anything except Leica camera. :D

Link | Posted on Oct 29, 2015 at 02:15 UTC

Seems they mean business. Well MF market needs some competition.

RandyPD: It actually reminds me of the Sony A900, especially he pentaprism.

Which is kinda great. :D

Osa25: Anyone releasing these kind of products in 2015 should at least attempt for some sort of aesthetic appeal. Form and function and are not separate poles.

It has huge appeal for me. :D I mean it looks from outside about as perfect as dSLR can look.

Okay, there is thing called Leica S, but thats quite a bit difference price category.

Link | Posted on Oct 24, 2015 at 14:32 UTC

Looks a lot like my old KM-7D or A900.

Which means about perfect when it comes to dSLRs. Now it depends only how good is image quality. :)

That pentaprism looks promising tho.. maybe similar to old A900? :)

austin55: Since I have installed Windows 10 Pro upgrade, I have had absolutely -0- issues with the OS or with any software compatibility issues. I am about a week in... so far so good:) Everything seems snappier to open and my machine does not seem to be taxed at all. I use LRCC 2015 and PSCC 2015 daily.

Kidding.. Win 10 has still memory leak? Its major issue with Win 8.1 (and anything that needs graphic card) and they didnt fix it? Oh my..

In reply to:

LastChance4U: I'm assuming the 18-35 f/1.8 makes more sense for the Nikon DX user?

It has T-stop of 1.8, which means f stop is less. There are no lens that have same f and T stop.
