0.7MP pictures to show off the impressive qualities of a lens meant for 50MP sensors?!?

is it humour?

It's pretty funny! :)

Ruy Penalva: It seems that in drawing is better because this photo does not show anything resembling an atom core and electrons spinning around it.

@Marty4650 not an easy task sir, they tend to stay their ways without following photographers lead. It's a challenge on its own!

Incredible!

Bing Chow: The lack of compassion by some is astounding. Unless you knew him personally, you don't how much planning and care he put into his tours. It's so easy to judge with one hand on a mouse and a coffee in the other.

So you know him personally and know how much planning and care he put?

He was responsible for a small group, and he put them (and him) in a position where someone died. Is it care? Responsibility?

Darwin, at least!

Dumb and dumber!

It is extremely dangerous, it could inspire some other douche, this may lead to a terrible crash.
It's also an insult and a threat to drone pilots that respect rules and have safety as their first concern, as it always should be.

As some pointed out, follow security rules, they are here for YOUR security.

As a photographer I would point that he's not facing the track to use a long tele-lens, nor is it correctly placed to shoot the car when turning (and skidding).
In fact I don't understand why he was there!

iAPX: Too funny!

8K needs a 44MP 4:3 sensor (7680x5760) or a 39MP 3:2 sensor (7680x5120), at least.
I could not imagine a better way to reduce dynamic and raise noise in any ISO setting (even in 25 ISO it's already present) on a smartphone.

Please! Don't!

Actually they are not even capable of high-quality HD filming, too much compression (resulting in blurry "moving"), dynamic is scarce (to say the least), colors are slightly off, ...

Definition affect dynamic, when keeping the same sensor size and increasing the definition, because the pixels are smaller and thus could not store the same amount of electrons.

Definition also affect noise, because you will read less electrons (you naturally capture less photons converted into electrons) due to the smaller surface. So noise-level is identical but signal level is largely inferior, giving a worse signal/noise ratio, all other things being identicals (and they are not :) )

Resolution is another point, the camera lens of today could not resolve these definitions, with actual sensor sizes, thanks to point it :)

Interesting, very interesting.

For my next vacation in Japan, I will try harder to come back with different point-of-view of usual suspects, and also different subjects too.

As an independent, a photographer and a company, if I took backstage pictures before a show (and I do it most of the times), revealing important points (or not), and then published them before the show, I would have expected to be banned.
No matter any NDA or document, just because.

I expect my client to review anything I want to publish, and they are totally right to refuse pictures (happens very rarely), it's their own creation, their own image, and I am there to expose it (pun intended).

I even had to change one picture of a little music band that was published but wasn't liked by th band (they were not the client), and I obliged.

When there is an event, you are not creating something (like in studio fashion photography), you are reporting it and you must absolutely respect it and your client.

Put a fence!

At some point we all have to embrace nature and protect it.
Same apply to helicopter/plane "nature lovers" photographers...

iAPX: So strange that it took 1-year to select 848GB of 42MP RAW Photos. I don't buy the story.

It's 11 600 photos (he states it), less than 60 photos per working day (including vacations, week-ends, sick call, etc), so he's sorting out approximately one photo per 8 minutes.
He needs 8 minutes to decide, average, if a photo must be discarded, and if we trust the story (no reason there are lies in it, no?!?), he ended up with 9 albums on his website.

These 8 minutes include the time to process (if we could call it that way) the remaining few photos. Does that one count? https://turbo.paulstamatiou.com/p/sets/new-zealand-2016/coromandel/copyright-paulstamatiou_com-DSC08341-1500.webp

Or this one?
https://turbo.paulstamatiou.com/p/sets/new-zealand-2016/coromandel/copyright-paulstamatiou_com-DSC08477-1500.webp

Maybe he really needs something faster, and it's not a computer.
Or there are utterly lies in this story, check by the numbers!

Editors should have reviewd the work, and the numbers!

Just look at the prictures, please, and then reply ;)

paulfulper: I was not impressed with his pics , limited creativity , too many bland images , they don't pop out or tell a story , also no creative angling.

Perfect pictures, look!

Even the timing is... OMG!

Docno: The G1X is pocketable? You do realize that there are billions of people on the planet who don’t live in “jacket climates” ... I haven’t worn a jacket since I left Canada 18 years ago. That leaves me with jeans pockets... try the G1X down there and let us know if the camera is still pocketable...

@Docno I live in Montréal and still, I totally agree with you!

A pocketable must fit in a jean's pocket, or a shirt pocket (but it's harder!), that's the benchmark for pocketable. And the G1 is *NOT* a pocketable until you are in the 400-500 pound side.

In reply to:

ProfHankD: So, a very aggressive 1" Sony sensor competes well with an "APS-C" Canon sensor. I'm supposed to be surprised?

This is *NOT* sensor comparison, because it's of no matter.

It's the couple lens+sensor that is compared here, it's deeply different, and it's th only thing that matter (when you do RAW at least) for IQ.

Really interesting, with some real life examples where one could make he's own opinion.

There must be many more differences in both cameras, but for some of us that are only interested in results (I am, as long as the camera enables me to obtain it easily and each time, any time), this is a statement about reconsidering choices based only on some factors (sensor size for example), and consider the great picture (pun intended) !

Wildbegonia: It is always inspiring to see someone so dedicated to their aims. Bottom line for me, I am going to have a feast exploring your galley Mr. Stamatiou with lots of coffee.

Just an excrpt, to see the quality of the result: https://turbo.paulstamatiou.com/p/sets/new-zealand-2016/coromandel/copyright-paulstamatiou_com-DSC08477-1500.webp
