It could also be a 4k or 6k video capable camera, that seems more likely to me than a semipro camera.

Stephen McDonald: Driverless cars are looming up and now photography without a need for a competent photographer. But does anyone have illusions that the edge of quality in photos produced by this, will equal genuinely-produced images? I'll bet that no program will ever give good quality to most photos seen on so-called social media.
Is DPR considered to be part of Social Media? I hope not.

will equal genuinely-produced images? Yes, sadly
no program will ever give good quality to most photos seen on so-called social media? It is already happening.

I know most people here will dissagree but this kind of technology in my opinion is killing photography as an art and as a profession. There will be no pro photographers soon because everybody will be able to be an artist without really knowing much about art or photographic techiques. You will be able to achieve a near pro level outcome from your camera so 99% of people will like it sounds nice in the first place but in the future this will turn against humanity and a CPU will be programmed to mimic art while people will get dumb and lazy. Lazy to learn lazy to study photography, CPU will do everything for you even crop and synthesis a CPU can find the "best" and "weird" "low" angles based on the best algorythms. Humanity is on the path to lazyness and art is dying day by day. Mass produced art will never be appreceated and this is bad for humanity in the long run. What do you think about it?

This camera can record 4K video [for timelapse in camera] and native 1080p in very good quality and DR. If within a year you earn from photography or videoproduction the money this camera costs then its a good buy. I would still prefered a PhaseOne for pure photography but the video of this camera is near RedEpic's DR.

I read the article and I personally don't agree with a lot of things. Raindrops inside tubes don't behave like light in photos, sensor size does not matter the technology and quality of the sensor does not have to do with its size. This article tries too hard to impress the amateur photographer with magic tricks but actually it does not offer anything new except maybe some confusion about how you should take photos without much noise.

On a photo in the Sony A77 II Real-World Samples sample gallery (3 comments in total)

Noise at low ISO, and very aggressive denoise on higher ISOs. My overal impression its that photos are too grainy at all ISOs and skin tonalities are muted.

Most of the photos seem over-retouched to me and the colors are heavily manipulated. Some years ago NatGeo was punishing their photographers for this kind of "photos" now they reward them. Makes me wonder why.

On article Just Posted: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 review (306 comments in total)

I am not impressed at all with the video samples on this review, from what I saw it does not even come close to DSLR HDvideo quality. I have seen way better sample videos from GH2 so maybe the reviewer used weird settings or YouTube messed up the quality? Though good tonalities tend to show even when you downsample videos. My personal opinion is... I have seen better video and photos from cheaper compact cameras.

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.

I was about to buy this lence too but scipped it.
After using a canon 50mm for a day, I noticed that the canon is very very soft and full of cromatic bleedings. Almost all the shots had a foggy feeling.
The sigma was fairly sarper than the canon and with more contrast but still had all the issues as seen on the previus posts.

I ended up buying the sigma 30mm f/1.4 and I am amazed with it, sharper than ANY canon I have used, even wide open it delivers beautiful sharp photos. Only problem I have noticed is that tends to miss the focus point very often.

Maybe it is hard for the canon focus system to cooperate with the 1.4 especially under dim light conditions. I never had focus issues with any of my other 2.8 lenses so I am sure is the lens and not me.

A weird thing I noticed on the sigma 30mm 1.4, is that near the corners of my photos, the bokeh from small lights forms in triangles and not circles as it normallly happends to other lenses. It is not something bad, just a bit unkomon.
