solarsky: Half a dozen photos only from the monochrome camera module? Also Lars...

@dvassafor & @Lars Rehm Correct! Why not - much - more photos from the monochrome camera module? Koi Zeit?!

In reply to:

BostonC: 12MP 1/2.3-inch Sony sensor??
why can't they put something like the sensors and lenses such as in RX100IV, LX100 on board?

Possibly because they aren't offered as OEM-modules that can be integrated into DJI's housing?

solarsky: Multi-shot Pixel Shift Resolution mode is the outstanding feature here, imho. It gives me the image quality of a 4x over-sampled image at nominal resolution. What would I otherwise pay for the resolving power of a 144.8 MP camera? $1800 or rather $180000?

@fmian : Nice, but analog. I meant digital.

In reply to:

solarsky: Can one generically tweak the seemingly off-set AWB of the A68 or would one have to run around with a grey-card to get results the likes of which a Panasonic GX8 et. al. produces straight out-of-camera?

@abortabort: So what?!

azeg: They don´t want to repeat the pricing issue with the DP1. Very good decision, SIGMA.
I fell in love just a few weeks ago with my dp2 Quattro, but i will definitely go with the SD Quattro the day it releases in Germany ! Stunning picture quality with the versatility of a wide area of good to very good lenses.
For the rest i have my Lumix LX-100.

@HowaboutLoL: Those must be the same sort of people that still talk loads about the Concorde. LoL!

@tbcass Thx for the reminder. I do remember now seeing the method you mentioned in a presentation on shooting with the A7R/II.

In reply to:

coldcut: Wow, much less than I anticipated. I wonder how many cameras the early production runs will be? The agressive pricing indicates that Sigma is aiming at a larger market share, but its difficult to figure out the strategy with these guys.

Difficult?! How can it be difficult when it's that specifically competitive ?!

You mean the pricing issue introduced with the original SD1 ?! That was 6 (!) years ago, btw.

Will be released a few months later, towards the end of the year.

HBowman: Low price, yes, but MANY lenses won't work correctly on it especially tele lenses and Macro ... fail.

BJN: Seems reasonable that an app that removes video recording limits could potentially damage the camera via overheating.

LoL!

raindance: Purchase $2000 camera body, $1800 lens, shoot raw, process 24 megapixel files in LR, apply, compress and upload to social media. Makes sense right ?
