derfotograf: What is 'other creative types'?

For me the final product is the large format print, not a weird screen. To achieve the best quality, I rely on my lab.

How about video editors, animators, graphic designers and such? ;)

On article Sphere of frustration: Nikon KeyMission 360 review (199 comments in total)

Too bad the video output is - as usual for 360° cameras - still a blurry mess. I am really keen on getting a 360° camera for live band recordings, if there ever is one that produces high quality imagery. Seems to be a long time away at this point though.

This might be a great tool to broadcast concerts. I wish I could get my hands on one of these until July. So far no 360° video source had sufficient quality output, I hope this update will fix that.

Carl Sagan should narrate something suitable for this occasion.

Nicolas Alexander Otto: I am very keen to see the low light performance of this sensor type. All the other specs don't yet convince me for that massive price tag. But it sure looks like an amazing tool.

I guess you're right. Gonna wait for the R or S version. :D

Peiasdf: Anyone remember the marketing spin Samsung gave when rumor begin to go around Samsung is leaving photography? Yeah, Ricoh is doing the same spin to clear stock.

Japanese photography insiders know for a while Pentax is going under. Tamron and Sigma haven't made any lens for Pentax even thought that sounds like free money.

Hm, about Tamron not making lenses: Aren't the 15-30 and 24-70 rebranded Tamrons anyway? So they are doing buisness just not the usual way. ;-)

I'm German and I've never heard of these guys before. Maybe it's because I mainly shoot ultra wide and thus have no need for such lenses or it's because their marketing department is not up to the task. Anyway looks interesting for portrait shooters I guess.

I certainly don't care about these and reading the comments almost no body else does. Here's to hoping some rich folks buy these offers and they use it to fund R&D on some actually new products like the D850 or whatever the D750s successor will be. Or maybe finally add the desperately needed update for the 16-35 to their line up.

Pretty great production value and style. Hope you get some more attention with these! Your reviews are usually outstanding.

Nicolas Alexander Otto: Hm, I wonder if the 14mm 1.8 will also be that expensive. Then I guess I'll stick to the 14-24 and the 20mm 1.8 Nikons.

@mandm: I guess you're right. Then on the other hand Sigma suprised everyone with the relatively reasonably priced 20mm 1.4 so I might hope the price will be ok.

Why doesn't it surprise me that Pentax is again leaving the competition behind in the APSC sector. They just have some amazing cameras.

I hoped they'd implement some more interesting software features like "live-time" "live-view boost" and so on. :/

Scottelly: I was hoping to see a night shot, made at f1.8, which would have shown how much coma the lens has.

Too bad.

:(

I bet as soon as Chris gets his hands on it you will see those. ;)

Thank you so much for these. I am so keen to know how it performs!

Nicolas Alexander Otto: 4GB RAM for Photoshop to chew on? I doubt that professional use is possible due to this. But I assume there will be at least a 8 if not 16GB version. But let's see what the market price will be.

Well, when I open up a 5GB bsb file of a focus stacked and exposure blended image with the different image layers as smart objects my 32GB are almost full as soon as I work on the file for some time. It might not be necessary for some but for me RAM is pretty important indeed.

That last lesne looks very sophisticated. I bet it has terrific IQ. :D

Hm, I like their new take though. Focusing on mid-level and high-level dslr and mirrorless + lenses. That seems - to me at least - like the most reasonable thing to do.
