misspiggy01: at least it´s not worse than 5D3 considering the bump in resolution. that´s something to be impressed by!

otherwise a very conservative upgrade. canon is just doing what they have to to stay competitive. no innovation in image quality though. that´s maybe a little disappointing. up to iso 3200 the 5D2 still looks competitive!

my guess is that they will come out with a FF mirrorless in 2 years and are keeping the goodies for that.

I added the OMD EM-5ii instead of the 5d Mk iii This is the pixel shift mode of the Olympus. The difference is amazing. If only Olympus could find a way of allowing photos of moving objects

Clark666: I like oil paintings of landscapes. When I see oil painting landscapes in an art museum, the same scene photographed appears to be flat and still. For example the oil paintings of Yosemite Valley in California exhibited in the De Young Museum and the Crocker Art Gallery appear to be real, the water and shading are appealing while the nearby photos of the same scenes are flat and don't convey the appearance of motion and flowing water.

Does the painter see something that the camera doesn't? Would focus stacking make the photos as good as the paintings?

Some photographs look real: http://robinwong.blogspot.com.au/2016/03/south-africa-wildlife-shooting-with.html

Somehow these photos have an appeal similar to an oil painting of the subject.

How do I get my Nexus 6 to save photos in the DNG raw format? Is the APP Camera FV-5 the only way?

I wonder whether there is an affordable version available?

GASP
He only needed two Contax cameras. They provided some safety in the middle of a battle because he did not have to stop and look through the lens. He also carried his Rollei and Speed Graphic cameras, along with a telephoto lens, all packed in oilskin bags. At Weymouth, the sight of the harbor stunned him: thousands of battleships, troopships, freighters, and invasion barges mingled together—5,000 in all—the largest armada ever assembled. Capa was handed an envelope of invasion francs, a package of condoms, and a French phrase book

Menneisyys: I've very thoroughly tested it on my (factory; no rooting) Nexus 7 2013 and found out the following:

- the new panorama support is GREAT, particularly if you enable maximum resolution (the default is high-res). Up until now, Google's implementation was a joke - far-far inferior to either Apple's one on the iPhone 4S+ or Samsung's implementation in their Android handsets. Even Nokia's WP (but not Symbian) implementation has been significantly better.

- blurring worked just GREAT in my tests. While some people did complain about it being slow(ish), I haven't noticed speed problems on my N7, which, while "only" having a 5 Mpixel sensor, has a, compared to the SD800, significantly slower CPU.

What's wrong? Most importantly, all manual modes have been removed, which is a BIG-BIG minus. There's no

- scene selection
- manual WB and ISO setting
- timer

The first two is particularly painful as, with the new Camera app, you in no way can force the system to shoot at high shutter speeds.

Can the Google Camera software be used to process photos taken by another camera? I want to upload photos to Google Plus for processing by the Google Camera software for the blurring effect

How do I search to avoid a duplicate post? The new arrangement omits the Canon EOS M but I don't know whether someone else already noted that omission?????
