Suntan: Is this just for mobile, or do they have a Windows variant too? It would be nice to have the option to move a project from mobile to computer if it "gets too involved."

I'm hoping it will be able to work as an Android app on Windows.

Deadlycroydon: Looking at it on Google Play it references in-app purchases. What other functionality would require additional purchases beyond the base install?

I think there's an extra payment for the ability to export packages in a format that some desktop editors, but the single payment will give you a powerful and easy to use editor.

I've bought in - I have it on my iPad, and it's great.
It works quite well on my S22 Ultra. A few features missing, such as stabilisation, but I'm sure they'll come in time - it is a beta still.

The only thing I really want is the ability to rough cut and colour a video on my phone and then export it to a package I can open on the iPad. That's not working yet.

inorogNL: The whole concept of filming everythink around you and than choosing the snap out of it that you want (or letting the app chose for you) is is so groundbraking!
insta360 is pure fun, (there are alott story modes, bullettime especially looks awesome)

That will be true in some instances EOS Guy, but also consider that it will also allow some people to achieve their creative vision far more easily, for video at least. For example, I can do jib shots, emulated drone shots, pans and get difficult perspectives (e.g.low angle) easily on my own and without needing other equipment. It also allows me to get stable properly framed footage in situations where it would not otherwise be possible. It's also great for motion timelapses.

The creative vision is in the creators mind - the 360 camera is just a tool that can be used for achieving that. It can also be used lazily, as you say.

rrc1967: can only the 360 mod be used as a webcam?

Edit: Saw on the websites that it's coming for 1" "soon"

It can be used on the 4k mod now.

olakiril2: They should make a 1" version with C-Mount.

Backbone can do a mod to the 1 inch module that allows it to use C Mount or manual M43 lenses.

This review seems to have missed what is probably one of the main selling points of the One R for casual users, which is the phone app. You can edit on your phone without having to download the files from the camera. It's full of quick templates in its Shot Lab that do what would be complicated editing jobs in a matter of seconds.
Yes, you will get better results by bringing it into Premiere or Resolve, but it's a lot more work and the phone app is capable of some very fancy tricks without much effort. I tend to swap between editing modes, depending on whether I want a quick output or the best possible quality.

You can also control the camera with the phone, and adjust most settings quickly through the app (except the system settings like screen timeout and so forth).

I'm highly impressed with mine - I just wish I could get out more to use it (bloody pandemic...)

left eye: Never heard of them, Oreos? ...just looked them up, some kind of USA biscuit. Is Venus Optics American? Totally confused. In terms of equivalence I'm thinking Custard Creams or Jammie Dodgers.

Sheacash: I do notice a distinct lack of social distancing in a couple of the photos.

Nice shots though - I like the 25mm f1. 7 as a general purpose lens.

Well then we'll "assume" they were responsible ;-)

The article itself says much of it was shot during the quarantine.

Vanitas Photo: My main problem is the price it has in the European Union, In the US this camera is 750 USD for the body only, in the EU is 899 euros (which would equate to 999.07 Dollars at the time I am writing this)...

To make the things even more stupid the A6400 body only price is 921 Euros, so paying an extra 22 euros of difference between the A6100 and A6400 give you all the video features in the A6400.

With this in mind, why would anyone pick the A6100 over the A6400 when the price difference in the EU is 22 euros?

I dunno if it is stupidity on part of Sony mixed with some silly tech tax in the EU, either way the price of the A6100 here in the EU doesn't make any sense.

I was really wanting to pick this camera to switch boats if it was 750-800 Euros.
*Amazon Spain prices.*

750USD at current official rates is about 675 euros. Add Vat (23% in Ireland) brings it to about 830. Factor in allowance for exchange rate risk and 899 is not too much higher than the US price.

Chris Noble: A "professional" did not originally mean "one who does it for a living," It meant someone who had an occupation that required a "profession", which means an oath. Professionals included the government-regulated trades (medicine, law, accountancy) to which was added guild-regulated trades in the Middle Ages. Everyone except the idle rich worked, but only a few were professionals.

This.

Don't talk about bastardisation of the meaning of a word if the definition you used for the word is itself a bastardised version.

I am a professional btw...

That's not great - the Huawei P30 pro has raw and focus at wide angle (16mm).

Sheacash: At 600, I'd be thinking strongly about it. At 500, I'd buy in a heartbeat, but the current price is a bit too high for me, especially considering I use Panasonic bodies, and would lose Dual IS 2 and DFD.

If Panasonic came out with it I'd probably buy at current price to replace my 14-140 if the performance was close enough.

Then it could be a prospect for me - I'd still prefer a Panasonic version, but at that price I'd quite possibly go for it.

In reply to:

BJL: All I can think is that this system is aimed primarily at high-quality video (plus stills on the side); the cost and bulk can only be justified by that emphasis on features like avoiding focus-breathing. It certainly will not be luring away a large proportion of Panasonic's MFT customers!

Certainly not me!
If I was so inclined, I could get a G9 and Olympus 25mm f1.2 for less than the price of the 50mm F1.4 alone.

Sheacash: I have Luminar 2018 (I was suckered in on the promise of a DAM). This is.....disappointing....

Luminaries itself is good for my needs, but I was hoping for more.

I hope it happens. The Libraries took long enough.

Some of the planned features do look very good.

So when will Sigma announce what their part of this Alliance will be?

Looks like the early shots in a fairly straightforward marketing campaign to me.

1. Remind Canon/Nikon owners that Sony is a serious player, and in for the long haul.

2. Allow the Nikon/Canon to announce their new mirrorless cameras.

3. Just before these new cameras ship, announce a new 'mega super" camera. This seeds confusion in the minds of potential clients of Nikon/Canon, particularly since it probably means investing in new lenses anyway. If a new mount is needed, why not consider Sony?

4. Because of the confusion, purchasers delay on purchasing new Nikon/Canon mirrorless in order to assess the wider picture.

5. Sit back and point to the new Nikon/Canon mirrorless as failures. Hopefully pick up sales.
