Hellraiser: Lets go! A m43 camera with computational photography features!

@Welsh - seen what a smartphone can do that. It takes about 1/10 the light a m43 cameras can and in the end the results are pretty good. I'd bet you that SN ratio of a m43 camera with image stacking that android phones have would be better than a FF camera.

@Astrotripper- they dont do the image stacking that phone cameras do.

Pentax should make a film SLR to go with those.

Really wish someone would make a good manual focus SLR.

The issue is - I don't know any reliable service here in Croatia, and I'm not sending camera abroad every time it needs some service.
If there was a new film SLR on the market (from a reliable brand that would offer service and spare parts) I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I bought 3 Practicas MTL 50. Those are are really heavy duty, all metal cameras. Mine, that i bought new, worked without an issue for 25 years. Those I bougjt second (or whatever) hand didnt work more than few months. Im not buying used that doesnt have service and spare parts anymore.

Really dont think so. I bought 3 of 90s SLRs. Neither one works properly anymore.
Throwing more money in the wind doesnt appeal to me :)

200.000 that are just waiting to break down and no spare parts. Prices of those used are going up every day too...

On article Tamron announces 17-70mm F2.8 for Sony APS-C cameras (340 comments in total)

16-60mm f2.8 would be nicer but this is nice too...

Hellraiser: I wonder how they plan to sell this when there is Nikon D500 on the market that is cheaper :/

Zvonimir - what are those 'superior' Pentax crop lenses?
Almost every single one is slower focusing than Nikon equivalent? Optical performance? Yeh, maybe equal. And lets not start the story aboit those archaic screw driven lenses that are such a pain to use. Besides, having 5 lenses of same or almost same focal length isnt really habing more lenses.
Not saying that Nikon shouldnt have more. But put everything together and Nikon crop system is better than Pentax.

Even so - K3 line was never ment to compete with D500 but with D7xxx line that is now much cheaper. So plenty of money to buy D7500 and some nice new lenses...

Hellraiser: Why not make a normal camera with android on it (with furure update support) and ditch this clip in mobile phone concept.
Looks as fiddly as it gets... :/

Yes - the camera should have a proper chip for image processing also.
But as i u derstand the software algorythim doesnt change much. Google did it for their phones, Samsung on the other hand doesnt touch image processing software for their ( to my knowledge) and neither do other andriod phone manufacturers.

Thats why 43 sensors are the good point to start with.
Btw - isnt camera software on mobile phones implement and forget deal for most manufacturers?

Full android ist really even needed for this camera. Only the computational photography bits are...

Only thimg that needs to work on that camers is the conputational photography part that android seems to do well. Other updates arent a paramount.

tlinn: This post feels like an attempt to do Panasonic a favor. DFD may get better as processing power improves but so will the other AF methods. I don't see anyone talking about how much better Panasonic IQ is or how much less expensive their bodies are as the result of DFD. When Canon introduced DPAF, it was slow but you could see the advantages. You could see why Canon developed it and what the future could bring. Not so with DFD. Personally, I see Panasonic's long term survival in this market segment as an uphill battle anyway. DFD is dead weight that will only make the climb more difficult.

This is a quote from Canon's web site:

"With many competitive systems reading autofocus from the imaging sensor, scattered, individual pixels are used exclusively for phase-detection AF (and often, these are not used at all for image capture)."

"many".... so not ALL... Seems some of the competitors PDAF systems use PDAF pixels to capture image data as well. I wonder if that is true?

Horshack: I've read Panasonic's arguments against PDAF in various interviews done by Dpreview and Imaging Resource. None are very convincing. Their justification of maximizing image quality is tenuous - the frequency of IQ side effects from PDAF such as banding and striping is infrequent, and the success of competing PDAF implementations in the marketplace demonstrate the trade-off is well worth it.

Whatever reasons Panasonic has for avoiding PDAF seem to be to serve the interests of Panasonic rather than their customers. One day Panasonic will realize that serving the interests of their customers isthe best way to serve the interests of Panasonic.

and what about Canons DPAF - phase detection without stripes. Class A - you might consider a Canon Camera then :)
Another note - this is a quote from Canon's web site:

"With many competitive systems reading autofocus from the imaging sensor, scattered, individual pixels are used exclusively for phase-detection AF (and often, these are not used at all for image capture)."

"many".... so not ALL... Seems some of the competitors PDAF systems use PDAF pixels to capture image data as well. I wonder if that is true?

Soooo.... DPAF doesnt have unused pixels like PDAF has?
