Unlikely. Disk drives have far more durability and reliability than SSD.

gago: 50 mm is equivalent to 80 on Canon APS-C and 75 on Nikon APS-C, not 85

You know the definition of "around"? The article states around 85mm

surlezi: @DPR staff
How is lens vignetting handled ?
What is done to correct accross the frame sharpness issues of the lenses ?

Doubt it is. That'd be photo manipulation.

Broadcast signals. That's how I view tv programming.

webrunner5: Trouble is it will cost 8k to buy 8k!

720 and 1080 cost 10,000$ initially years ago!

Yup. Skip 4k just like skipping a computer /device/camera generation. Anyone viewing 1080 should pass on 4k like I am. Canon is going to provide gesr to broadcast the 2020 olympics in 8k.

PanoMax: When recording my GigaPan panoramas one prerequiste I need is patience. It can take hours to make a single image, but when you see it printed, then you realize it was worth the extra effort.

Really? Who prints anymore.

Richard Murdey: In defense of the micro-Nikkor 40 DX, it's a dSLR, F-mount lens. If the minimum focus distance was any shorter, you'd have to paint your subject onto the front element.

(That said, kudos to Canon here. I was expecting Nikon to do this first with a Nikon 1 macro with the LED ring light, but that died on the vine evidently. If you are going to have a mirrorless short macro lens with 1:1 or better, a built-in light is practically a requirement and I'm surprised it's not already a common feature.)

I think the whole nikon 1 line has died in favor of DL cameras yet to be available.

You can print a 6MP image the size of a football/soccer field too. Obviously that photographer doesn't understand printing!

On article Apple planning to open imaging research lab in France (43 comments in total)
In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: I wonder what the ratio $$ spent on research for mobile phone photographer to dedicated cameras is.

I've also wondered why Apple does not come out with an IOS based large sensor camera or DSLR.

There would not be much overlap with the existing iphone market but there would be a lot of overlap in the expertise required to bring out a consumer friendly "real camera".

Apple knows standalone cameras are on the decline. They won't enter a contracting market.

Jay A: Obviously this product is not meant for me, but somehow the idea of sending almost $30,000 worth of gear up in the air and possibly out of sight just does not sit very well with me!

Many high end drones go for the 10s of 1000s without a 50 mp camera!

Impressive images.

100% is relative to your screen. 100% on my high ppi phone screen isn't very large.

PhotoKhan: In my calibrated monitor there seems to be a yellow/greenish veil cast in all the samples.

Definition is, indeed, very good but nothing to write home about for a MF sensor.

I was hopping to be more impressed. Maybe with the next batch of samples?

Agreed. Canon has a $3000 50mp dslr that has dozens of different lenses to use with it for whatever your need!

I don't trust any photo Fox News publishes. NG is now owned by Fox.
