Any chance of facial recognition AF in video?

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.

I'm visually neutral on the change, but if the expert money is on dark backgrounds, I guess I'm switching back to dark

sportyaccordy: $1300 for an F/2.8 equivalent lens....... to each their own I suppose.

Could double as a nice indoors, low light lens?

They seem to be automating creativity, which might be good for consumers, but I'd think enthusiasts would be more interested in automating focus checks in portrait shots and making sure the closest eye is in focus.

I don't have a 50c to trade in, but do you think they'd take my old cell phone instead?

On article VR / Action cameras forum just launched (26 comments in total)
In reply to:

Markr041: I do not understand why "action" cameras and VR are in the same forum.

Yes, action cams are used for VR, but so are other cams. And most people do not use action cams for VR.

So this forum will include people talking about shooting and viewing VR plus people talking about action selfies and their mountain hikes and how waterproof their camera is and how it withstood a fall from a tree, etc..

This is a really bad idea. In fact, most VR is NOT about action.

maybe instead of action/VR, they should call it the wide angle/high distortion forum. That's my impression of the action/VR genre.

teddoman: Don't know if databases are any better now, but I hated using photo databases because if I moved a file in Windows, the database had to be rebuilt. So I love the idea of a non-database RAW editor.

We didn't sacrifice all those lives throwing out the British just to have to submit to an Adobe database.

You know Samsung NX is top of the line when it's apparently discontinued but still making headlines

In reply to:

Siobhan A: Kind of sad. After 2 year Sony still doesn't have an APSC camera that competes with the NX1, and no F/2,.8 zooms for APSC users...unless you want to spend $2400 or $3000 for one lens that's twice the size.
Samsung had a superb 85mm F/1.8 for under $800...Sony has one for almost 3 times that much and its twice the size.

Anyway, Nikon and Samsung images still look better...and that is from cameras two years older.

Samsung 85 is a 1.4

In reply to:

2eyesee: Is anyone else getting rather cynical about Sony's habit of keeping old cameras on the market to justify charging a premium for their new tech?

There's no way this camera should be viewed as anything other than a replacement of the A6000. Just as the RX10 II should have been a replacement of the RX10 and the RX100M4 a replacement of the RX100M3.

This minor upgrade allows you to shoot in an entirely different video format. But hey, if you're still happy with 720p, I've got a Nikon D300 for you.

Noorar: phase detect for the a6000 would have made my day , it would be "nice" from Sony to do that !

Actually, most products pay off in the checkout line

BernardoAdam: Sigma, we, the users of Samsung NX Camera System need urgently an adapter like your new one. PLEASE help with your knowledge, thanks in advance

Sigma won't, but now that Sigma has shown it can be done, perhaps one of the 3rd party adapter companies will step in if Samsung stays dormant
