My, how far they have fallen...
https://www.cameraquest.com/ektra.htm
"The Ektra was Kodak's (and America's) only and last attempt to produce the finest system 35 camera. It was amazingly innovative and feature laden, actually outshining the contemporary Leica and Contax in terms of features. Introduced in 1941, it found no market when re-introduced in 1948 at the princely sum of $700. The Ektra's firsts and features are very impressive:

1st RF to have a parallax compensated finder!
1st 35 to offer lens coating on all lenses
1st 35 RF to offer interchangeable backs
1st 35 to offer built in zoom finder (varifocal -- needs refocusing for each lens)
1st 35 RF to offer lever advance (back mounted)
1st 35 RF to use a film rewind lever"

Our family used to camp and ride motorcycles on some ranch-land with kind permission from the owner, the only requirement was to not destroy the land or chase the cows, then some 4x4ers started chasing the cattle, so the farmer added a ditch, it didn't stop the 4x4ers, so the the ditch was deepened to about 6 feet deep, and finally a fence was added with no entry for anyone.
So over 10 years of family fun ended because some tools had nothing better to do.

This same attitude is why there are shootings in malls and schools, the only opinion that matters is your own, FU(k everyone else's opinion or rights.

sherman_levine: For my FZ1000, the ISO 100 / Raw / Bulb / F:8(the narrowest FZ1000 aperture) combination washes out too many of the brighter trails. I find that adding a 3-5 stop ND filter gives me much more latitude for color recovery

Nice shots, I noticed that you didn't remove any of the long exposure noise, I under stand not wanting to have that setting turned on, but there are alternative options.
Like taking a black-frame shot to use it's noise to remove pattern noise, heat bloom, and hot pixels.

Sold my 1DIII and 6 "L" lenses after shooting a NEX-7 for a year and not touching the DSLR, I now have an A7r, till Canon steps up to the plate and builds something innovative and responsive, I sadly won't be shooting Canon.
I would love to see Canons version of a FF NEX-7.

I'm seeing colors change in my linked pictures, the source img is at Flickr, it looks fine there and at FredMiranda, but here it looks desaturated.

profus: am i only one to see, that the images viewed in the new forum are not looking that good ( sharp ) as before? try to compare an image from any thread to the same image opened directly in the gallery and you'll see what i am talking about...

since this is a photo forum - it is a huge minus imho :-((

After posting the thread defaults to "Thread view" rather than my preference of "Flat view"

How do I get "flat view" to stay my default view?
Edit:
I just had to reload the forum index page.

Give me some view options/customizations please!!!!

The notification box seems to be pre-checked when I reply to a thread, I don't want a million emails telling me someone posted to the same thread, and I don't see a setting to change that in settings like it says.

Thankyou for letting me edit a post more than once. (it was so annoying) but more than 2 times would be nice.

I can't delete a post if it's been edited 2 times= FAIL

And what are the formatting options?
eg.
>is no longer a quote,
how about[quote]does this work?[/quote] nope. :(
phpbb or vbulletin formatting would be preferred.

mikeydread: Quote from the Sony official website:

"there’s a tiltable LCD touch screen"

oh dear DPReview - how can you do a hands-on preview and not know it has a touch screen!!!!

The press release:
http://presscentre.sony.eu/content/detail.aspx?ReleaseID=8032&NewsAreaId=2
"3.0” Xtra Fine LCD™ display that can be angled up to 90° up or 45° down (approx.) for easy viewing in virtually any shooting position"
Nothing about touch. :(

In reply to:

Cy Cheze: It looks as though the NEX system can't provide a fast lens unless it is also rather big. If the E50mm f/1.8 sample is any indication, a 35mm or wider lens with f/1.8 would be very big. Both the 200mm f/6.3 lenses are too slow for sports at the long end, except maybe with the ISO juiced up.

>(Physically) bigger sensors = (physically) bigger lenses.
is just not true, M mount lenses are small, and cover full frame, it's just more difficult to get good corners on RF wide angle lenses, but that will change with every generation of sensor.
The AF motors & Iris system will not add to the depth, just the diameter.
<Bigger apertures = bigger lenses.
It's true of all lenses, even m4/3's

I hope they bring something to market closer to Lightroom/Aperature without losing it's strengths.

Thanks for another update PW!

Something I'd like to see is an ipod/iphone connection kit so we can change settings in the field.

I was hoping he'd share what the final image size will be, but we only get this comment:
"The 0.1MP resolution we were producing then is not consumer-ready, so we've come a long way from there to make a commercializable product"

So 1MP?
If they can get to 4MP that would be a huge improvement.
