Nice kit, period.

raindance: The space savings on the Sony A7 is reduced once you factor in the lenses which are every bit as big as other FF lenses (and in some cases bigger than Nikon/Canon offerings).

The space savings of the Sony A7 series bodies are still further reduced when you factor in all the underwater housings for all the gear. There's obviously a lot more than the camera body and lens.

GinoSVK: HUAWEI Make It Possible... with right equipment.

Huawei shot with a Canon and got fired for their trouble.

On article Samsung launches first removable UFS memory cards (177 comments in total)

Just as SD/SDHC/SDXC has achieved market dominance, someone has to come up with yet another flash card format. Good luck with that, Samsung. Maybe you should ask Sony how well MemoryStick worked for them, seeing as Sony has made almost everything they sell work with SD/SDHC/SDXC.

PropaPH: I'm a media professional and spend all day looking at images on a computer, in a company of more than 500 similar workers. The overwhelming trend in software interfaces in the last few years has been towards neutral-to-dark backgrounds to help reduce eye strain for people who work long hours constantly staring at a monitor. Sites that use large areas of white background are visually uncomfortable and seem amateurish to me for that reason.

One reason black backgrounds cause less eyestrain is because it greatly reduces the effect of monitor flicker. I went through a period of eye problems years ago where this was a huge issue for me. I was so happy when I found the Sun workstations I was working with at the time had an invert function for the display.

I now know I'm in the minority, but thank you so much DPR for keeping the light text on dark background. This is my first time visiting the site with the new default white background and it took only seconds to get back to 'normal' (whatever that is).

phoenix15: Only if Lenovo let the motorola brand alive. Only moto is not enough.

More specifically, Google bought Motorola Mobile Devices, stripped out MMD's patent portfolio for enhanced ammo in the Microsoft/Google/Linux patent wars, and sold the remainder to Lenovo.

I like them. I have a first gen Moto G and they have been very good at pushing out the Android updates/upgrades.

GotoDengo: DPR, shouldn't you add a "NOTE:" to this story indicating the results appear to be hampered by a sub-par lens, and a substitute is on the way?

Your comments make that clear. It needs to be in the story.

@Thematic

No. According to the Zeiss USA website, Otus is only available in Nikon F and Canon EF mount.

Joe Ogiba: Smart idea of Ricoh using the older 36mp Sony sensor to keep the cost well under $2K. Too bad Pentax did not have 4K video mode with H.265 like the Samsung NX1 to increase sales but it looks like most Pentax users are not interested .

Going with an older sensor and getting 4K video is simply not going to happen.

I did note Pentax got the video data rate almost up to the AVCHD max. spec. and the audio sample rate up to 48 KHz, both big improvements.

DoubleDash: Kodak and Polaroid. Very true. IPhone one #1, ridonculous.

The fact that a computer is not on #1 is just shamefull.

@Roland Karlsson
Yes, there were computers before the transistor, but none of those would fit in a house, much less under or on your desk.

Robert Zanatta: Pretty good battery life.

Is like to try the viewfinder.

But only USB 2.0?

I noticed that also.

I am going to assume that on the smaller APS-C bodies space is at a real premium - and the USB 2.0 connector is undeniably smaller.

For fastest import of media, I would remove the card from the camera and stick it into a USB 3.0 card reader anyhow. Purpose built hardware has a way of being faster than what is built into most cameras.

You just nailed why this Kodak product is such an epic fail.

Marty4650: And now... the elephant in the room.

$75 for 2.5 minutes of low fidelity video. Making it into "high priced motion lomography."

Is this a serious tool, or just another toy for hipsters?

It's a serious tool for removing money from hipsters.

Mssimo: I think the number 4 is thought to be unlucky in Japan if I remember correctly. Maybe that is why the skipped D400 name. No idea why they kept D4 and others.

And there is also the Panasonic GH4.

In reply to:

Francis Sawyer: I was going to applaud Kodak for creating this somewhat perplexing but bold product... until I saw the price. The price for the camera is too high, but the price for the film is PREPOSTEROUS. Why in hell would anyone pay that, when most people have no way to project film and the included scan isn't going to be as good as what you can shoot with a BlackMagic Pocket Cinema camera?

This whole thing is baffling.

Not only will the included scan not be as good as a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera, it won't be as good as a Panasonic GH3, a body almost half the cost of a BMPCC.

You do realize many, maybe even most, of Nikon's camera have a Sony sensor? I don't think that makes them Sony cameras.

In reply to:

LincolnB: Is it possible to verify from the photo that it is still a K-mount?

If it isn't K-mount, then Pentax likely just went bankrupt.
