MrBrightSide: Another breakthrough. Can't wait to see it on the shelves of my local cameras store—but I'd still prefer a three-sensor camera with prism block to split the light into its constituent colors. Nothing could beat it for color.

although that does sound rather prohibively expensive. you could just have an r/g/b filter revolver in front of the sensor.

symmetriebruch: you can already paste settings in lightroom to do the tedious stuff. for the creative side you wanna approach every shooting a bit differently anyways, at least i do. so i don´t . see much of a point. though i´m certainly corious what it´ll do with my erratic editing. just not corious enough for a subscription model.

i might try it on some of my mediocre ones and report back. still the whole idea of sending my best stuff via the cloud to some random company with no real proven track record or accountability doesn´t sit quite right with me.

what´s up with the rediculous difference in pricing? 6500$ = 5396€ not 7300€ that´s absolute insanity paying that much more for nothing. they might as well make it a us only release i´d feel like an absolute moron buying it in europe.

JasonTheBirder: This camera could be interesting for monitoring crepuscular and nocturnal species in the forest. There are quite a few rare or range-restricted and vulnerable species that we know so little about like the Long-whiskered Owlet of Peru.

or for deep sea eploration would love to see more of these

symmetriebruch: it only works with very simple movements. the examples they picked in the video are the lowest of low hanging fruits. high contrast, well lit, a minumum amount of movement that´s highly predictable. it utterly fails with anything remotely chaotic a sprinkler or fire or or lightning, explosions, anything that slow motion would actually be useful for won´t work or rather will look very weird. i´m sure there are a lot of use cases even for this very limited form of slow mo you can even exploit the weirdness in the wrong predictions in chaotic scenes for artistic purposes that´s what i used it for anyway but it´s certainly nothing new at all you can get the same or similar results with plugins like twixtor.

sure. you often get this warping effect you can even see it in the sample video from this article if you look carefully at the hands. but it´s hardly noticible since the samples are picked for a reason like i said above. and that´s what these algorithms are best at.
if you apply it to harder to predict scenes however it looks something like this:

and that´s how i used it myself when playing around with after effecs
since here this odd space warping effect was just what i was after

symmetriebruch: what´s incredible about this? i guess nobody thought of using a tracker before. they´re sold by the the hundred thousands but he must´ve been the first one to aquire one of these exqusitely rare marvels of modern technology. but wait that´s not all. he actually got himself one of these digital cameras you only see in science fiction. he probabably happened upon an alien crash site and managed to procure one via this extraordinary circumstance. but don´t be blown aways just yet he actually managed to actually operate these highly complex aparatuses in tandem! can you imagine that?! i still can´t fathom how one single human beeing could actually manage to achieve all that in just one life time. i´m now thoroughly amazed and forever awe struck.

of course i have maybe about 20+ of tracked milkyway timelapses alone like here for example:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9PLwrpRYIg

your also welcome to have a look at them all on my channel

i have about 150 all in all. and i won´t tell you they´re great or incredible or even good i´m just doing it as a hobby mostly for myself. what i objected to wasn´t the photographer himself or his timelapse which i actually liked but the super and hyperlatives thrown about in the article and the comments section. he was using his gear exactly the way it was intended for. i can´t see anything creative about that. and i´m pretty sure if you asked him yourself he woudn´t think of his timelapse as creative or incredible i´m pretty sure he set out to shoot a nice stacked timelapse like 10000 other people before and after him.

if you´re interested i´m on this side for the gear news and camera specs mostly. and i occasionally ask the nice folks in the forum for advice on technicalities

BeaverTerror: Manual focus is much easier on mirrorless cameras. It's also nice to be able to preview focus and exposure. I used to shoot with DSLRs, but having gotten used to nice EVFs, I now find OVFs outdated and cumbersome.

Reading comments from die hard fans of OVFs, one forms the impression that they all have superhuman vision and reflexes. For mere mortals such as myself, the pixelation and response lag of EVFs are barely perceptible and certainly insignificant compared to the numerous advantages the technology presents.

Live view on DSLRs do not duplicate the advantages of EVFs. Anyone making this absurd claim has never used a modern mirrorless camera.

i agree the only advantage i can think of would be framing in very low light but you can just use a laser pointer for that. a mirrorbox takes up valuable space and drives up the costs, plus it´s one more thing that can go wrong. i certainly won´t miss it.

Am i missing something or is the wing really not motorized? If it was it would be such a great timelapse tool. This manual thing is pretty much useless and can be accomplished easier and cheaper in post
