Stollen1234: apple LTE not compatible with LTE in Germany..this is a scandal..how could apple claim that the new Ipad is world tablet if the high speed connection is not compatible with major parts of Europe such Germany and many other countries???

same in Norway.
They don't support the 4G frecuency range in Norway.
They have not done their homework regarding 4G.
So for many here in Europe, there will be little people buying it for the speed on mobile networks.

In reply to:

Marco 2k7: No seriously WTF? 1080p on a 46" screen already is at its best. I guess 8k will be an improvement for movie theater's projections or crazy people with 80" 21:9 TVs.

but still...madness

80 is not very large for projector image.
I have 77 . and that is small.

photoway: Great !

After a long wait, at last, here it is !

For last couple of years people are complaining that Nikon has not enough "pixel count"
(12mpix vs 16 for Canon etc...) ..with the exeption for the D3X, right.

But 36 Mpix, it's crazy !

As a processional photographer, for me, the focused resolution, and also the resolution requested by by clients, is : A3 @ 300 dpi
Means 18Mpix (With 16 Mpix, the D4 is close to perfection.. But still some pixels are missing)
With 36 Mpix of the D800, Is quite too much (heavy sized files, longer processing)

I was only hopping for a D800 between 18 and 24 Mpix, with a better hi ISO capabilities than the D3X

Anyway, it looks like I'm going to get a D800 soon !

But much easier to have something to crop from and still print large.

On photo ISO_12800 in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (33 comments in total)

Problem with this photo is that all objects in it are not natural. Natural objects tend to have better micro detail and hence easier to see loss of detail.
But than also need 100 % crops comparison to other cameras. But I bet that will come in the review as usual.

donthasslethehoff: f/5.8 at 112mm?? I guess you won't be zooming in much.

guess if you just kick the ISO up, there will be no worries...

The perfect holiday camera if you don't want or can have any of the heavy gear with you.

mancat65: Canon should have produced is a G12 clone with following changes:

1. 10 MPl latest gen. low noise sensor, TWICE current G12 size,
& camera body same size.

2. Digic 5, w/ expanded range of dynamic tone curve choices, ASA 50
setting, and 5 shot adjustable HDR . AND, setting that allowed color
performance to conform to industry standards.

3. Faster 28-140mm lens - improved edge sharpness.

4. Better optical viewfinder - indicators for shutter speed, f stop,
shooting mode, flash, focus lock, and grid lines.

5. Flip out viewfinder with a higher resolution & less light washout.

6. Processing for chromatic, pin cushion, and barrel distortion.

7. Full 1080 HD video with usable zoom, and ext stereo mic plug in.

The camera that I describe above would have been a "Home Run" as a
serious alternative to the bulky DSLR. It is not that hard to recognize
how the G12 should have evolved as a compact fixed lens camera. If
only Canon could think so clearly!

With those features it really is very close to the predesessors,

With that small sensor, it really is not very good alternative to the DSLR more like a camera which to bring along for casual shooting.
The larger sensor on the GX 1 ( same height as the cropped DSLRs ) makes it much more like a good alternative to the DSLR. Not just an emergency backup camera.

In reply to:

binauralbeats: + Largish sensor
+ Looks like it was designed in the 80s
+ Metal body
+ Articulating LCD

- Viewfinder adds cost and bulk
- If the viewfinder is anything like the G9's, it's going to SUCK
- Viewfinder is not hybrid or electronic and therefore cannot be used to focus or confirm focus
- Too big
- Too expensive
- Slow lens

the lens is fast. If it had been faster then it really would not be very compact anymore.
and you still say it is too big.

This camera is and will always be a compromise. But I think it does it better than most.
A large sensored point and shoot containing all the manual controls and even a viewfinder.
The price will go down. The initial price is more a way of giving the marked an expectation of a high price, and hence they will sell plenty of them for about 70% of that price.

Johnderock: A question for Barney and other specialists
When we were using 35mm films, there were lots of excellent pocket cameras around, not to mention Minox or Rolley 35, Contax T, Konika etc
They were using what is called today "full frame" and the size was like today's S100.
In the digital age, I cannot understand why al manufacturers are struggling to build "compacts" and need to reduce the size of the sensor.
Why are NEX lenses so huge ? And the sensor is APC-C, not even full frame!
Why don't they just take a Minox 35 body and fix a full frame CCD at the back ?
Any idea someone ?

very easy:
To make good small compact FF , you would have to have fixed optics....
Most people don't care about controlling DOF but they like to zoom.
Hence the transition to smaller sensored cameras.

On article Roundup: Third-party Lenses for Enthusiasts (170 comments in total)
In reply to:

Stefan Stuart Fletcher: One of my many buying mistakes was the Sigma 50 mm f/1.4. My copy suffers from distortion, incredibly soft corners wide open (on a full-frame, admittedly) and short-focusing. Perhaps I was just unlucky with the copy and the 5DII is a harsh task master on below-par lenses. What _is_ certain, however, is that the lens is huge and bulky. It looks outsize on a 5DII and a 7D. I can't imagine how ungainly it must be on a smaller body.

I think you really need to test this lens before spending money on it. You really must need its optical qualities, such as they are, if you're ready to tout this monster around.

Corners Soft wide open? Is not the subject matter closer to center? Especially if shooting wide open.

Is it soft in the corner whatever you do? or how are you testing it?

On article Lytro announces Light Field Camera (269 comments in total)
In reply to:

MP Burke: Initial interest may wane somewhat, once still photographers see the resolution it is capable of.
The lens specification quoted, constant F2 zoom in a small body, is a good clue to what's inside- i.e. a small sensor. HD resolution most likely refers to 720 by 1080 pixels- it could be, at most 1080 by 1920 pixels.
To do what they are describing at the resolutions (i.e 12MP+) most people are using for stills, will require a lot of memory and processing power and would probably cost several thousand dollars.

I look at this first camera as an experiment for how the marked react to it and see what the new technology can do.

It might have some applications where it is impossible to autofocus.

On article Canon announces seven EF Cinema lenses (68 comments in total)
In reply to:

marianco: Note that these are all MANUAL-FOCUS lenses.

Cinematographers do not use autofocus. They preset their focus ranges and manually move the focus point as the subject moves.

These $7000 lenses are not going to be that useful for DSLR users.

Of course at these lens prices, who is going to complain about the price of a IDx? They are fairly inexpensive for professional cinematography, though certainly a league above photography when it comes to price and need for deep pockets.

it will be useful for DSLR users for filming video.
The normal EF lenses are not tuned for having good transition while zooming or focusing. ( when focusing the image change in size for most DSLR lenses which is not nice on film )

Maxfield_photo: Those are some sexy specs, it's a shame they haven't abandoned the big stupid dial on the back for something more ergonomic. Does it come in K mount?

stupid dial? do you have a suggestion for something more efficient?
The nice about it is that nice placement both in normal position and when using the vertical grip.

(unknown member): I saw this a few weeks ago and thought it was pretty impressive, shutter blur has been an issue since the dawn of photography. Now if only Adobe could create an optical deblur plugin that would be the end of it!

Congratulations Adobe!

well i bet that a sharp original images is always better than having a deblurred image. But it will be able to save some disasters... :p

In reply to:

joe6pack: Did anyone noticed that the Deblurring demonstration uses 3 different "preferences" for the 3 images? They must have spent hours to find the settings that yield perfect result for each photo. Something most people not willing to do. I have heard very similar technology from Microsoft (recording camera shake while taking photo and later use it to compensate the photo). I have to actually use it to believe it.

well it is a prototype....
An finished product will have more help to the user....

Roger Knight: Actually, I really don't get it.
What is the point of this camera system?
I just don't see the point of it. Any of it!

not everybody wants to lug around with many heavy lenses when taking photos.... Rather many light ones..... :p
You will not get the same quality in the photos out of them compared to full sized SLR-s but will be much more carriable
