Hugo808: Most impressive. If only it weren't so darn big and heavy, but that's physics for you....

Wrong.

Very reasonable camera and lens sizes for the GFX.

miric: Looks good. Though 6x6 sensor would produce more air look.

+1 to PhotoRotterdam. What is he talking about? He can't possibly justify such a comment. This lens isn't designed for 6x6.

MarcoKoehlermkh: where does all this low iso noise come from? did you sharpen the sh*t out of those images?

?

looks clean.

How is it that these scanners are confused so easily when items are in one bin? Can anyone explain this? Last trip I (and everyone around me needed 4 bins) it was getting ridiculous.

One bin for shoes.
One bin for belt and other pocket items.
One bin for tablet and phone.
One bin for laptop.
Then the carry-on bag.

If we add this camera bin many travelers are now at 4 or 5 bins.

And guess what happened once people were at the gates....announcements for lost items was like a laundry list of travelers....DOZENS of people called back to collect items.

The billions of dollars of lost time and wages to economies has to be staggering.

Thats one way to spend money.

Interesting.

Parents are forced to buy gaming consoles?

And this somehow drains national economies?

Do you ever read what you type? The BS is so thick and deep.

munro harrap: Suckers! Their motive is money of course. Each curved sensor will only work with a lens designed for it. So it is the same move as changing the lens mount design-redundancy of past designs force YOU to lose $$$$$$. As did mirrorless, remember???

Yep, and you cannot see the difference AND your photos wont be any better as a result, and of course each lens will only work optimally with its OWN curved sensor, so one camera per lens makes for HEAVY load.

A company that wants to make money? Im shocked !!!

In reply to:

DuxX: Great news BUT... how much time Sony will need to cover that system with sufficient number of lenses without tricks with adapters ;) ?? Knowing Sony and looking to Alpha FF system like example, that process can take years, decades maybe. That's a damn long time.

Wrong.

Richard Schumer: Bah! This "news" is by and for the legal departments; expect big patent battles or cross-brand patent exchanges in future. Curved sensors are great in theory.

The problem is that, in theory, theory and practice should be the same. In practice, they are not.

? People like you posted the same thing about stacked FF sensors a few years ago - and now they are in the Sony a9.

Have fun with your fake news.

In reply to:

Lars V: One of several core problems with the curved sensor idea: The exact curve of the sensor is part of the optical formula. This means don't expect a whole lot of interchangeable lens systems to use curved sensors. Probably none.

Another problem is related to manufacturing - all sensor fabs are for flat sensors. Curved sensor cutting will be a massive challenge, even more so if each lens requires its own curve.

So don't expect any curve sensors in your camera systems. These patents are primarily useful for fixed-lens small-sensor cameras

Not true. Doesn't have to be a small sensor. Read the post again.

In reply to:

Mariano Pacifico: Nikon patents lens for camera with curved sensor, therefore, Nikon must have lined up curved sensors with exact specifications for this lens.

Which comes first? Curved sensors? Or, Lens for curved sensors?

sony sensor

thgun: Re posting due to mistake. It's a great image. What happened to the days when you could snap a pic and no one minded. That was before digital photography became accessible to everyone. Now you can't take a photo without you may have a law suite on your hands because you have not had permition or your breaking the data protection act.

And when they say copyright should be given to the monkey because he took the image when playing with the camera is popostrus. The whole world's gone mad.

why?

Nixyz: I wish they use m43 for the mid and FF for the high end. APSC is too crowded.

Using that logic mirrorless is too crowded so they should give up.

Horrible attitude.

Donnie G: My guess is that Nikon will take a similar approach to new camera development as Canon. They will come up with an easy to use, quick focusing, touchscreen plus on-sensor phase detection combination that can be used with equal success throughout their camera product line, both mirrorless, and DSLR. Such a combination will make their APS-C compact mirrorless designs extremely attractive to a wide range of users while also turning their DSLRs into cameras with all of the advantages of pure mirrorless designs when used in live-view mode, just like the Canons. No need for a FF mirrorless body when your DSLR already gives you the same functionality. No worries about lens compatibility either. Very cost effective. Maximizes ROI. 😎

lets hope not - thats pretty boring.

Erik Ohlson: Turned a nice, compact camera into a real CLUNK.

Get a different camera that doesn't need such a Kluge.

Just like a computer heat sink - this isn't permanent.

GarysInSoCal: WELL OVER TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS! By the time you purchase this camera and the 2 lenses you need (and extremely limited lens options at that/only 3)... that's what you're lookin at... it's quite heavy and DOES NOT HAVE 4K!... WTH! NO THANKS... I'll wait for the 50 megapixel (and 4K) Nikon D820/850 (which will be a high dynamic range/low light monster) in August at 1/4 that price... ;)

nobody cares

STOP WITH THE ALL CAPS and troll elsewhere
