grafli: Well my Huawei Smartphone (AI mode with Mate 20 Pro) also tells me what it sees... what is new?
Yeah well the price, ok. But what else?

The one in the review doesn't send data back to Chinese Spy Agency. LOL

Ian Stuart Forsyth: While some of them are impressive they are not that hard to do once you are setup.
There is also several people I feel that have done a better job. You just have to look.

Just like everything else the more you self promote the better you get noticed even if you are not the best

Donald B: Looks like great fun. shame i cant try it i live in Queensland . could this be done in a freezer ? just by opening the door and placing a bubble on top of a frozen chook :-)

Thanks for the input Bart, .. Yes condensation certainly will be an issue, however, I plan to have all aspects ready for a rapid setup.
My clip on clear panel will be de-fogged by a hair dryer .
If I can't clear it this way, ..... i'll simply assemble a double glaze panel?

The freezer already has clear plastic drawers that when defrosted and then polished with microfiber cloths, stay clear for days?
So my thinking being: .. Defrost and completely clean the interior, silicone polish, ... bring down to temperature with viewing panel in place and door closed setup and ready to just add bubble?
When ready, ..move the panel just enough hatch the bubble onto the pre made ice surface???
Well Donald, ... we are in lock-down now in the ACT, .... Plenty of time to play.
PS: avoid the COVID critters that are wearing fur coats in the freezer! :) And stay safe mate. ... Baz

.."now includes more than 60 million different camera and lens combinations."

How did you arrive at this magical and wondrous figure?

Mmmmm show us your math? ..........

Still No thank you, .... still has the "Lets jam the system by constant scans" I see.
According to the comments, ... support isn't good!

Buggy, poor support or as stated by many, (No Support)

The vid above isn't very convincing at all? .. Seems it's aimed at the rank beginner?
Very underwhelming. .........

Tis a pity, ... like many others, ... I'm looking for a good stable alternative.

Excellent result produced by a great imagination and a good skill set.

I'm down in Canberra, Australia, extremely hot! ...
I might cut a glass panel to fit the freezer opening and make a clear plastic mini studio with 5000k LED ?? As we are in Corona-19 lockdown now, ... I guess we have a bit of time up our sleeve?
47C this summer, ... Mmm back to minus 7-10C soon?

Perhaps a fish tank with dry ice?

I guess the ambient temperature of a "Freezer" presents a lot of opportunities?

Thank you for sharing your very interesting subject mater. .....Big Thumbs Up.

45 x 30 and they call it MEDIUM FORMAT!
645 60 x 45
then we have 2 1/4" Square
60 x 70
The 645 just squeezed into the Medium format class.
Leica is a CON calling their Just-Above-35mm MF
Fuji as an example have years ahead of Leica in digital Products, then when we look at Canon Nikon, in my opinion, . they are not even in the race?
I can place a couple of Real cameras that have a huge system in my studio and still buy lunch and cover operating costs.

In reply to:

piratejabez: Why are the raw files so large? No compression? Or is 40MB reasonable for 20MP images? (Most cameras I've used have been ~1MB/MP, usually lossless compressed)

...Mmmm RAW usually means raw = no compression, thats the whole idea.
You get all the data to work with, not like rubbish jpeg which is largely unusable in the professional field.
There is a lot of information lost in jpeg conversion.
I take it you never use RAW?

Hi. I have been watching this camera with interest, however, 5 sec write speeds tell me they don't update their cameras to often?
I think it's about 6-10 years ago that this speed was the norm, perhaps longer?
The DC2000 has been around for years, .... It's 2020, I will look at the next offering seriously, but it will have to be current tech at least?
The camera has the makings of being a very good alternative to anything around.
One can only hope?

schaki: Good to see some more coverage of this camera. Seems to be very good. Too bad just that there is not possible to turn down or off NR for in camera jpgs. Perhaps they fix that for next model.

jjz2: When I see normal people out with big dslrs now unless it’s a photo shoot it honestly looks kind of ridiculous.

When I read this JJZ2 I know you are a pathetic limp wristed self centered opinionated "Look at ME Look at ME type.
I expect that you are also the type of moron that spends $2000 on an iPhone and claims it is better that a Pro Real camera! ...
You are the sort of individual that has turned this site from being a place to read excellent and accurate reports and share intelligent thoughts to what has become a vomit pit.

Your article tells me that you may indeed generate money from photography:
(You stated that you are Professional)
However, it certainly does Not make you a Real Educated Professional by any means.

Your very ordinary images clearly support the statement.

You are also describing camera features as only an Amateur regularly does.

What studies did you undertake, and what real qualifications do you hold if any?

Hello landscaper1 Thanks for your reply, .. No I didn't get caught. But it saddens me to see so many that do!

Mmmmm So it's still a "KickStarter, .... having not sorted out the previous versions!

AND! , ... You expect people to keep on paying in the hope that someday, you may fluke it?

What an industry, .. Educate the customers to always pay up from for a half-baked solution!
Camera manufacturers have cottoned onto this perc! ... Pay full price now and if you are lucky, we may upgrade the firmware at sometime in the future that may contain the features you paid for, .... Or maybe not? ... and it actually not work as promised?

But we don't mind, ... WE HAVE YOUR MONEY!

Aegon Targaryen: Leica? Lol, who cares that they're not there. They haven't made anything worth showing forever.

Olympus is pretty surprising! I figured they'd love to show off the EM1X and 40-150mm f2.8 Pro. Maybe not as impressive as they want us to think?

Nikon's got nothing new to show. Nobody cares about the current Z bodies. No D6 or Z8/Z9 (maybe Z1?) or APS-C Z body... No point going.

Meh, it's been a crappy year for photo gear, except maybe for Sony.

Mmm I see you are stupid as well as opinionated!
So, ... what have you done worthwhile?

Iv'e never seen a statue erected to a critic!
