who are those people in front rows waving flags: true Google fans or paid clowns? :D

beautiful indeed ... pity i have to watch 12K imagery in 720HD on my 15" laptop monitor though! ;-) still good no matter what ...

Scrollop: Please forgive me for being naive, but he mentions that he didn't want to compromise on image quality so he used (an older) Sony F35 to give the video a cinematic quality.
Could someone please explain why that camera (I'm assuming super35) would produce a more cinematic image than an a7sII, for example?

I agree it looks very cinematic, though could you produce that image with a FF "consumer" camera with good lenses?

Thanks

your question here shows your inexperience and lack of deep knowledge in this industry ...

NO you simply CANNOT produce TRULY CINEMATIC images for LARGE SCREEN PROJECTION using an "a7sll" camera or they would have done it ... (needless to remind you that when they started doing this the model you mentioned did not exist yet!)

need to know why?

then compare not only both cameras technical spx side by side, but also find some PATIENT pro cinematographers (not photographers doing the occasional video for weddings or tv commercials and similar 'small projects' ...) who will tell you about the difference ...

or, if you can find a movie theater owner willing to allow you do it, then project one of your videos made by the Sony a7sll on large screen and see for yourself ...

i'm not falling for this joke until we see the test results!

if it's going to be anything like that silly noisy 50MP 5Ds or whatever its name was, then we're in for yet another stupid product by a company that has seldom made mistakes ... (but when it has, oh, well ...)

armandino: Canon and Nikon need to bring outstanding innovation and performance, so good that people will be ok with dealing with adapters. This will do themselves 2 favours:
1) fresh new market to a stagnant camera business
2) Business to a new dedicated lens system that will over time replace the old one.
Basically what Sony has done so far but better, because they are starting late and they need to satisfy pros demand.

once more you showed it so well how your definition of the same word is so different from mine then!

not saying your 'impression' of the industry is wrong, but it involves 'business people' who are NOT TRUE pros really ... (and we have them in all other industries too!)

that's why so many camera manufacturers have gone bust during the ages because the "Pros are business people" at the top levels of those companies have mostly fallen for the designs with prosumers in mind and came up with big or little toys that even the prosumers don't quite manage to buy due to reasons i said in my other comment already ... (iPhone 8 came out quite a while ago but my wife got it so late when it's actually going out of date!)

and what makes you think i don't take photos to make a living here? how many "photographers taking pictures for a living" would you like me to show you that still use their 'ancient' cameras ON A DAILY BASIS without even bothering what the latest model in the trend is?

1Dx4me: this laptop's spec. is more than enough for photo editing, i know more commenters in here feel like it is for gaming....wrong!

photo editing on a small monitor? really?

Link | Posted on May 25, 2018 at 08:58 UTC

am i being negative or what?

a 4K resolution on a small 15" or 17" monitor?

really?

this is barely good for gaming even, much less for serious professional image (or even video) editing that requires at least a 27" --extremely high quality-- monitor!

nice idea indeed ...

how much does the whole setup weigh?

not a lot?

so this new toy's not for me then `cause i'm a weight-lifter loving to do heavy lifting at least 20 hours a day ... (and then spend the other 4 taking beautiful portraits of sexy women!) ;-)

c'mon! where is the world of professional photography going really?

Debankur Mukherjee: I may be wrong but bezel free handheld devices like tablets and phones may not be practical since you need some "bezel space" to hold the device.......

"... you need some "bezel space" to hold the device..."

true that ...

and guess what: now people will be spending more money buying protective covers and 'bezels' for these bezel-free devices! :D

Link | Posted on May 25, 2018 at 08:45 UTC

a bezel free phone reminds me of a frame free print that is apt to be touched by greasy fingers and prone to be damaged by the elements and so on ...

just sayin' ... ;-)

cosinaphile: and vacuums don't suck air in... it is yet another cognitive illusion , real enough but not for the reasons we imagine

vacuums work because of the external pressure of our atmosphere vacuums remove the pressure and atmosphere rushes in ....it is pressure not suction

yet it still feels like vacuums suck ....go figure

good point ...

i remember i read in the past that when vacuums remove the air pressure then Earth gravity loses its power in that little vacuumed spot and dirt and garbage can 'fly' up the vacuum hose and into the dust chamber ...

sounds like that's a wrong notion as well because even if gravity is temporarily lost in the small space at the vacuum hose's tip on the floor, then dirt would just be floating at that very spot instead of flying upwards through the hose ...

good points clarifying common mistakes in use of technical terms here ...

by the same token, many people so wrongly believe "using slower (longer) shutter speeds (say below 1/30th") with a wide angle lens on a hand-held camera captures the shot sharp and non-blurry, while doing the same with a telephoto lens can results in blurry images due to hand shake ..."

that is also another myth because in both cases the shots ARE blurred but the one taken with a wide angle lens only shows it less, NOT removes the blur totally!

why: both shots are taken with the same shaky hands, thus resulting in blurred images!

wish someday people will also realize common mistakes in using technical terms doesn't mean film photography can be called "analog" in comparison to digital!

(the last statment here will most probably stir some arguments on this thread ... just wait and see!) ;-)

then you're not talking about pros here, but the "prosumers" (professional consumers) who buy highly costly fancy electronics mostly to boast them off to their friends and colleagues and people like that who are readily impressed by the price tag on a brand name and a particular model under that brand name rather than WHAT the device truly does!

hence the use of the word TRUE when referring to pros in my previous comment here ...

and yes i know of prosumers who aren't even rich! (my own wife, a retail store employee barely being able to pay her rent comfortably and without having to borrow money just got herself an Apple iPhone 8+ even though she doesn't need it really and her old iPhone 6 is still working nicely enough!

a "stagnant camera business" in case of the Canikon duo or any one, isn't just because these companies haven't had something new or innovative lately ... there are many other factors involved as well, namely, the would-be buyers inability to spend cash on fancy expensive toys!

and TRUE "pros" don't always rely on new toys really ... they just make the best use of whatever that's available to them, even if it's a decades-old equipment!

the major advantage of DSLR cameras, which is less battery usage simply because they don't have an EVF, is what makes them still desirable for many applications ...

then there is the fact that a DSLR camera can still be made in a way to incorporate an EVF inside the pentaprism housing as well ... beats Mirrorless, doesn't it?

ok, fine, ML cameras can be lighter in weight and smaller in size ... (albeit at the expense of using more power!)

but c`mon, a professional sports photographer for example, wouldn't give up on his DSLR's more reliability in viewing more comfortably and focusing more precisely through a pentaprism finder and move over to an ML camera even if the latter does take more frames per second that is achieved via a rolling shutter that's no good for capturing action! and most ML cameras AF sags too, right?

bottom line, yes, both types of cameras are needed surely but none's supposed to replace the other ... not right now at least anyway!

In reply to:

LightCatcherLT: what amazes me is that everyone thinks it's Panasonic innovation, while it was Olympus that introduced this feature almost 3 years ago in Olympus E-M5 mk2.

hi everybody ... interpolation of a single (or multiple) shot(s) image, or "press (Offset) printing" rotation of the CMYK layers (so the 'pixels' don't overlap) etc, are all related and the very basis of what is happening in this 'new' sensor-shift technology or trick or whatever we might call it ... but they're not the same!

the fact of the matter is, with interpolation or layer-rotation, the resolution doesn't change really and remains the same amount of pixels and only more color hues are gained, while with sensor shift, there are also some software processing tricks applied, which together do increase the resolution (thus file size) of the final image just as well ... hence a 30MP sensor yields a 100MP file and a 100MP sensor, a 400MP one in the end ... (such as in the latest Hasselblad model ...)

the results however, although quite good, are not as finely as expected really! check out the test images on all of these cameras and you'll find out ...

Thorfinn: As HiRES at the olympics 2020 are announced, I will invest in cooling & refridgerating suppliers - These monstrous amount of data has to be computed somewhere.

I am so much not looking forward to count the blades of the green. Maybee some pixelpeekers will love it.
There is only SD footage of Mark Spitz, Jessie Owens run is only b/w. So what!

continued from above:

anyhoot, film fog AND grain can be eliminated almost totally, when film negative is regenerated via cine positive film and/or digital processing ... digital noise can be reduced just as well, but it's always present in low light areas of the digital image no matter what ... and as for pixel pitch, well, i'd leave it to yourself to decide for yourself now that you seem to know a lot about digital upscaling / downscaling stuff ...

long story short, digital SHALL replace film totally someday (and something else SHALL replace digital just as well and the trend will continue as ever!) but for now, film is there to stay, and is making an even bigger comeback, while digital is sagging in development ... at least digital sensors won't get any better for quite sometime into the future, while digital displays ARE getting much better ...

@ Ebrahim Saadawi: you're just stuck with film grain, while forgetting all about film fog? ever heard of that one, film "fog" by any chance? it's the equivalent of digital noise, which 99.99% of digital photographers mistake for / compare with film grain ...

and not so curiously, film fog happens at the film base, more than it does on the emulsion layer, just as digital noise forms up at the sensor's base (or back, depending) not at the pixels level ... (and then we have 'pixel pitch', which is the real counterpart to film grain, but, again, majority of digital photogs simply don't even know about that!)

continued below ...

kdmad: I have a question, I am fond of taking startrail, I have currently FZ200 which when taking 10 sec long exposure, it needs to wait 10sec to save the picture. is the FZ80 like this or it is continuously saving the photo without waiting because it created a gap somehow in the startrail.

a rather late reply to an old post here but well, sounds like i'm the only one doing it anyway! :-)

i guess that's what you'd find all digital cameras do when in an exposure setting that takes longer than 1 second, in order to reduce noise on the image before saving it ... i know the noise reducer can be turned off on some cameras though, so the exposed photo can be saved faster ...

btw, moire is mostly to do with displays than sensors ... if displays improve too (not only in pixel count and pitch, but also in core technology!) then moire will be reduced just as well ... as long as sensors still use pixels instead of some other unknown / better technology, however, then the moire problem will still persist, albeit at a much lower rate ...
