JensR: The current ISO performance is great for me, but at the same time, I'll never be satisfied: There is always more to squeeze out of images. tests will reveal how much of it is marketing and how much is real improvement.
If the improved pixel shift works better for my landscape photos, I'd be interested.
Big question is how expensive this will be in Europe... ...if it is offered.

Word of mouth on a forum (_before_ this article on dpreview) was 500€

Apart from that, it's something I'd give as a present to some people I know XD

Nah it was a low-effort late-evening post. Thanks anyway :)

LensBeginner: Right click, Show Image (or whatever the original for "Visualizza immagine" is) in Firefox, and you get it full size, just like it was with the button, not just preview-size.

You just have to get to the black overlay with buttons, it doesn't work from search results.

So what? There's always ways, stand-alone open source apps, etc.

2. Photographers love their work to be exploited or butchered

As far as 1. is concerned, I'm afraid commenters on this site get the award...

You have to click it once to open the black overlay-thing, then you can do "the thing" and get full size.

cosinaphile: considering the push to acknowledge the cellphone as a defacto point and shoot for the masses , the retention of sd storage is at least respectful of a given :

that a real camera has removable storage and a card repository for image data
that is removable variable in size and transferable ,..hardware wise , to a wide variety of other devices .... no one in their right mind would buy a camera without sd support .
[ they sanely dont exist ]

but we are told this is the future , bla bla bob bla bla with the cellphone camera , somehow suddenly uneeded or" quaint "
a schizoid absurdity that cant be true and not true like an uncertain cat in a box

his noa has sd support,... so is on the right side of history on this matter, good for them

Uh... there's this thing called USB cable that was in the box with my last smartphone... I use it from time to time to download pictures, videos and text notes to a thing I call a "computer".

Then I make a backup copy on an external HDD, and delete (*gasp*!) the data on my mobile phone...

Used Driftwood('s) to actually shoot driftwood... clever one.

Nice video, I don't need gimbals at present, but maybe will in the future, who knows.

On article How I built a large-format (8x10) video camera (225 comments in total)

Before watching the video I thought, oh what a cool thing to do, to use a large format camera to shoot video on film! then I watched the video.

But, hey, if it works...

realmadeira: Is there any phone with modern OS that has 1 inch sensor? There was Panasonic few years back, but what is the current state?

@Lars Rehm
Who's this "Consumer" everybody thinks they know everything about?
I would be perfectly happy with a phone up to, I don't know, 15 mm thick? and I know plenty of people who think just like me.

That's 0.60 in, for the contrarians.

If some hobbyist can "kill" the industry, than this only indicates that the industry has been uncompetitive for years and it's probably a good thing it gets replaced by something better

That's a more reasonable approach.
I was under the impression that your position was something along the lines of "one has to be cunning and find a job that can't be done for free, the others that aren't so smart be damned".

A world where only so many jobs are viable, and there's no need for so much workforce means very, very few rich people, and a social time bomb ready to go off anytime.

"change your system" I'm not American... I'll take it as a compliment for my language skills :-P

My examples are not "picky", and I could make hundreds more, from different fields.
You, OTOH, are only bringing up examples from the IT field. We don't eat silicon.

I never said that "you know what the next ten years will bring"... only that I fear it.
It's funny... because by reading what I got the impression _you_ thought you knew... or maybe you're just not trying hard enough to imagine the consequences of the very things you are praising.

It's so dishearteningly sad... a guy comes and waves a 1$ bill, everyone is happy because they are 1$ richer, and nobody thinks about looking at the bigger picture.

BTW I'm done arguing with you, since you appear to purposefully distort everything I say. And that's sad as well, but not unexpected on this site.

Tell me what's the difference between Jasha Heifetz's way of playing the violin and Leonidas Kavakos'.

Then tell me the difference between a Guarneri del Gesù, a Vuillaume, a Sderci and a contemporary violin.

You'll see that the technical "advancements" are mostly a matter of taste in the first case, and in the second case are non-existent. The issue here is a little bit more complex, but the bottom line is that you can't say that a modern-day violin is better than a 1700-built one.
In both cases, it's not something Joe Average can grasp.

That's just one field. How significantly has the way we build pots and pans, or WC flush changed in the last 50 years?

In the '90s you coulnd't buy a PC that it was totally obsolete in a matter of months, now I'm using a 4-y.o. PC and is as usable as ever, and it could potentially serve me forever, if its obsolescence has not been induced (that last Spectre / Meltdown bo11*cks really was over the top).

@panther fan
One of the byproducts of the global sharing of informations, is that the number of people that can do (or _think_ they can do) most things "good enough" raised dramatically, and I fear the day when no one will pay a professional to do his job...

I was thinking that workers' rights (in the '60s) have probably been made possible (simplifying) by the burst in technical innovation, the reconstruction after the war, a world population which was less than half what's today, global inequality and other factors.
Now we have more than 7 billion people inhabiting this planet, innovation is hitting a plateau on many fields (that aren't nano-tech, DNA, and somesuch), automation has reduced the need for low-specialization workers, and there's no need to rebuild entire cities.
Too much workforce = no leverage.

The truth is that very few jobs are so critical and so difficult that you can't avoid paying a professional, but 7 billion medics and lawyers are a little too much...

Only if the public can discern.
I work in another field, but same considerations apply... Joe Average can't tell an apple from an orange.

josh bailey: He will be happy until he prints or views at 100% lol. In his defence, easy camera to disguise and carry all the time. Good shots at 25% view :)

ad hominem.

BTW Josh didn't judge the man, but the camera.
