Nobby2016: too bad no firmware update can fix the crappy ergonomics.

maybe it´s just my hands but the shutter release button on the A7´s is in a bad position.

They actually moved it with the second generation.

Great photo, relatively dull video unfortunately. Many people make the mistake of including *only* aerial shots, which gets old after about 10 seconds. A healthy mixture of ground shots, closeups, and aerials as highlights works best, in my opinion. Regardless, great work, Dale!

DavidVogt: Products like this are contributing to the death of the Polaroid brand. Yikes.

A darn shame too, when they released the Polaroid Cube I thought the brand had a second lease on life.

photodesignch: I really don't understand the excitement. First of all I am a long time Pentax fan. I do still have a couple of camera bodies and lenses lying around. However, 36mp cmos sensor, wasn't that the A7R age? that's like almost 3~4 years ago!

5 axis IBIS? so is cameras after A7II! 100% viewfinder.. okay! I gave you that one, but OVF means focus shift and mirror lockup problems as well... so I am not sure if that's like "OMG! so awesome!" part.

Last, I am glad the price point is decent. and I love to see the 15-30/2.8.. Other than that K1 is no more than just another A7II to me. Sure! the megapixel is about A7R range... slap a A7R sensor on a A7II, what a big deal! ok... what's the fuzz again?

To me.. it's just a product in between A7R - A7II.. nothing very "exciting" about.. But I wish to see not only 15-30/2.8 WR.. I wish to see the entire new lineup for the limited lenses :)

@Zdman - You lost me. The A7II is $1700 - $100 cheaper than the K-1.

happypoppeye: There is very little benefit shooting in RAW these days and its easier for a company to handle jpegs. Plus, jpegs are almost just as editable.

Just...no. This simply comes down to "quantity over quality", something the internet age has brought upon us.

DavidVogt: I highly recommend PhotoDeck over all these services for pro photographers.

PhotoDeck doesn't take a commission when you make sales on your website - this can be a major advantage if you use your website for transactions. The designs are beautiful, but just as importantly they are FAST and work great on mobile. I've been with them for almost 3 years now and my clients have been very impressed.

In reply to:

gladmatt: Does anyone know if it's possible to alter the depth of field of the focus, as well as the focus point? IN theory it should be possible, I would have thought

You can add areas that you want to be in focus. Check out the Asia D video where they demo their software.

Sdaniella: downside... it is distinctly a shallow dof only effect... no high dof effect to be permitted... :P
it has maybe 4 max? (not 5?) focal zones permitted?
very near
near
medium
far
and... that's it? (and only the very near distinctly focused, while all the rest farther out... 'kind of focused'?

Actually, it allows stacking of the photos to create complete sharpness throughout depth - while still having the benefit of shooting at a large aperture.

In reply to:

nofumble: Is this just a Focus Stacking in high speed?

No, it is not. I also had this suspicion until I saw their parallax movement demo. Very impressive and not achievable with focus stacking.

In reply to:

tfeltz: With high frame rates (10+ fps) becoming more common on conventional cameras, focus bracketing could become an option for non-Lytro cameras. Via software similar to HDR (high dynamic range), the areas of focus can be selectively determined during post processing, including extended depth of field.

Perhaps - but at Asia D Lytro demoed parallax movement that could eventually create true 3d images with a single shot - no amount of FPS can recreate that.
