Funny Valentine: This will be a game changer for Canon, Fuji and Nikon users. It will be their first time tasting ultra high megapixels files.

The big downside is it's fake extra megapixels, and it will also amplify noise.

Pixel shift still remains the gold standard because it suppresses noise and increases color fidelity. Pentax, Panasonic, Olympus and Sony have been offering it for years already. For them this "new" adobe feature will go under the radar.

I was trying to say pixel shifting and panoramic stitching are very different from AI upscaling, sorry if I wasn't clear. I think the first 2 are more related.

@Paul_Takes_Photos of course 300mp is high res. But the mp or horizontal or vertical sweep doesn't matter because they have different purposes.

You can use panoramic stitching or pixel shift to create high resolution photos but only for a static image and you can't upscale the photos you already took a long time ago with them.

You can use Super Resolution to upscale the photos you already took, it doesn't matter if it's static or not, but you can't take photos with it.

Sorry but I don't think you can't shoot with a telephoto lens then use panorama stitching in Photoshop and claim you've been "taking super high resolution photos for years", any more than if you used the Super Resolution.

And I don't understand this comparison between Panorama stitching or pixel shift and Super Resolution. They're apples and oranges.

timo: How to you open a jpeg in CameraRaw? I can open it in PS, or in Lightroom, or in PS via Lightroom - but none of this gives me the enhance option after a right-click.

Or you can click on File, Open As, scroll down to Camera Raw.

They release this update a few weeks after Dpreview complained, I guess Nikon could have released it a long time ago?

Ursa Mini Pro 4.6K G2 has 15 stops of dynamic range compared to 14 stops on Ursa Mini Pro 12K and its $4000 cheaper.

Zakzoezie: Is presented as pocketable camera to do handheld filming, and on adds it shows often the Canon 85mm f1.2 lens. Now since there is still not any kind of stabilization build into this thing, I would like to see the footage of this camera handheld and with the 85mm lens on it ... good luck. Oh yeh, and please don't tell me it is a pro camera intended to be installed on a mega rig and on a rail system, because this camera is NOT advertised like this !

"BTW, good luck with your preordered camera. Have fun with it ... especially when mounting a 128mm FF equivalent prime on it and shooting handheld footage :) :) :)"

@Zakzoezie I already said I agree that the 85mm was not a good choice to use there (even if he was just setting up the camera). Now you tell me to have fun shooting 128mm handheld as a parting shot? And you say I make no sense at all and SteveV4D makes things up?

As far as "misleading advertising", SteveV4D also said "the wrong choice of lens for a marketing photo, which is unfortunate, but hardly damming", and I agree.

Then he pointed out "You could of course be pedantic and hold them to account for the lens seen in the photo and claim misleading advertising. However the handheld claim isn't wrong."

I agree. But you pick out just the "misleading advertising" and act like he was the one ranting about that and not you.

"And BTW, I asked the question to SteveV4D whether this picture is what HE meant by "misleading advertising" and afterwards he wrote it himself !"

Really? Then maybe you're right and I should cancel my preorder too because of it like SteveV4D? Or maybe you didn't get that either?

"Hilarious ... so you claim people take the camera + 85mm lens off a gimbal every time they change something in the setup, and then put it back onto the gimbal (and eventually re-balance the whole thing) after the setup is changed ?"

@Zakzoezie No I didn't claim that. I mean it's quite normal to set up the camera even when it's not mounted. Not everything you set up needs to be rebalanced when you mount it.

"You mean, like the 4th picture of this article where the camera is used handheld with Canon 85mm lens ... is that what you mean by misleading advertising ?"

@Zakzoezie You mean, like the picture where the guy is obviously setting up the camera? Aren't you being misleading? Or are you not supposed to set up the camera handheld?

"Oh yeh, and please don't tell me it is a pro camera intended to be installed on a mega rig and on a rail system, because this camera is NOT advertised like this !"

Since you think that 4th picture is misleading, did you see the pictures on BMD's website? Did you see what it says under that same picture on there? Did you see only pictures of people shooting with the camera handheld?

"Seriously, every marketing guy of every company is keen on misleading people ... and blackmagic design is not different !"

I think that's misleading. Every company's marketing does not mislead people on the same level and BMD is very different from companies like RED.

Fotoni: Blackmagic was the first consumer camera with RAW video capability. Now some brands have full frames with RAW video capability. Sigma Fp costs almost a grand less. Good alternative, if you plan to get a gimbal and external monitor. They will wipe the floor with Blackmagic.

"The LCD on the fp is superior to that on the BMPCC4K or6K - it is actually visible in bright light."

@Markr041 This article is about BMPCC 6K Pro and it has 1500 nits LCD. Just clarifying.

Botifarro: :
Like it or not and any criticism or bias aside, this camera overshadows anything, everything and anything in the full-frame and medium format categories.. it's almost embarrassing to all other bigger imaging companies at this point. Fujifilm is quickly becoming the "smaller" company to beat and this product redefines what true value and real IQ are. This is absolutely a product that is remarkable on all fronts no matter how you look at it and masterful feat of engineering. My hats-off to Fujifilm, from how far away they've come to how unbelievably smart they are moving forward. They prove once again they are a photographers company and know and love what they do in the name of the medium itself, not just as a money making or technological-prone venture. Well done, well well done indeed and all success absolutely deserved.

When did you become a big Sony fan LOL!

tkbslc: Peoples. It's not "a phone". It's a pro quality digital video monitor and live streamer running Android and with a phone radio built in.

Nobody is buying this to look at facebook on the train. Put down your pitchforks.

@AcerK yes I know what kind of monitor, I have bought monitors from Atomos. I'm not saying I'm going to buy the Xperia Pro. I'm just saying I don't think tkbslc meant it's not a phone at all.

@AcerK it is a phone technically and I think tkbslc knows it, that's why he said it's not "a phone", maybe you don't get it but I think he's right.

Sony, that has absolutely no market share in the mobile phone market, and I mean ZERO, has got to be completely out of their marbles with a pricing of this already last-year and spec'd outdated absurdity.

@Rensol, that's not what I asked.

Xperia Pro is obviously targeted to those who doesn't want to mount a dedicated monitor and a dedicated smartphone and would rather have "the world's first external 4K HDR OLED monitor, as well as a 5G (mmWave) live streaming and file transfer solution, for your dedicated camera" and have the loads of cash.

"already last-year and spec'd outdated absurdity"

Which smartphone from last year is an external 4k HDR OLED monitor?

"50MP still image capture at up to 30 fps"

Is that raw?

"If you don’t mind dropping the resolution down to 4K, you can record at up to 120 fps (5x slow-motion) in 10-bit 4:2:2"

Nope I don't mind that at all, I prefer that over 8k 4:2:0 30fps.

"Sony claims you should be able to record up to 30 minutes of 8K footage thanks to a heat dissipation design similar to that found in the a7S III."

zakk9: $5,000 would enable me to travel non-stop for 3-6 months around South and Southeast Asia, taking tens of thousands of photos than I can edit on my old MBP.

With an attitude like that, wanting to spend my money taking photos and stuff rather than buying yet another piece of gear, I guess that monitor is not intended for me.

@quiquae why do you suspect that when the title says it's 'aimed at photographers' and it displays 99% of Adobe RGB?
