tkbslc: Seems odd they'd skip RF mount given it's a manual lens.

That's strange.

M mount flange: 27.8 mm
If it fits in M mount - it should be possible to make it in RF mount...

Pentax FA* top of the line lenses from film era are all silver, Pentax FA limited lenses all have silver versions - so it makes sense to have a silver versions of every camera. Less prone to heating from sunlight too - same reason why many supertele lenses are painted white.

Well, so far the only negative review of this lens on Amazon is from a person who bought RF 600mm for EOS 90D. It doesn't fit. Otherwise target audience is satisfied.

Tester_v: I do print 30" images or more, Tamron not a good lens (period). none of them is. You see Tamron printed on the lens-stay away if you planning to print your images. For posting on the Flickr or FB it is good but again $300 is too much for it. I would pay $150 or so.

Let me see... Roger Cicala wrote about Tamron 35 1.4:
"I expected the Tamron to be a nice lens at a good price. Instead, it is, for the moment, optically the best 35mm lens you can get, and at a price that should make you want to get it."
He declared it after testing extensively Tamron lens and its alternatives. And he published results to back his opinion.

Now some "Tester" declares all Tamron lenses are garbage and when asked about proof offends other people in this thread.

I guess whom I should trust :)

BigBen08: The Ultra interests me very much. But $1300 for phone? It's within my budget, but still a lot of money. Gotta ask myself if I really need all of its features.

@Jeff Peterman

I'm glad they've fixed AF problems, early reports suggest new laser AF is much better than in S20 Ultra. That makes Note 20 Ultra a much better phone. Software could be improved with updates, but not hardware - so it's good to know they've got hardware right this time. Just make sure you get Snapdragon version...

I strongly disagree with the rules.

With smartphone in every pocket and many excellent lightmeter apps available, in camera metering is not that important, let alone automation. It's not that difficult to learn, and some film is very forgiving with exposure errors.

Tactile feel at the other hand is important. For under 200 Pentax Spotmatic (with pre-SMC, all-metal lenses) or Rolleicord would be a camera made only of glass and metal, purely mechanical. You'd have to go Leica or Alpa to get that experience from modern camera.
Film camera with some automation will likely be left in AE mode.

If we do stick to the rules - Yashica FR I would be my choice.

It also depends on how long are you planning to use one.

Price on Samsung phones usually drops after just a few months. So you could wait for 20 Ultra to become cheaper or you could get Note 10 Plus right now...

santamonica812: Just curious. What sort of idiot would make a camera that does not have the ability to add memory? And what moron would do this for a camera that will gobble up memory with really nice cameras as the main draw of the Ultra? This is really mystifying.

Who would be dumb enough to buy this? I'm just not seeing the market? Maybe there are enough beginning-level photographers??? I dunno.

Shouldn't you ask Apple that question?

mick232: How long till it overheats during 8K recording?

Storage limited 8k

Please correct the mistake: Ultra has microSD

Link | Posted on Aug 6, 2020 at 07:36 UTC as 17th comment | 2 replies

Note Ultra has the same camera module as S20 Ultra, with slow AF.
Regular Note has a better camera, but no microSD and no IP rating.

To me that means S20+ is still the best Samsung has to offer.

Max Iso: Im trying to think the last time i saw a Hollywood scene that was 20 minutes straight. Most youtube videos i watch are not 20 minutes long, and definitely not a single take. Even DPR video reviews are cut into pieces, whether recorded as a whole then doesn't matter.

Most of the uses i have seen people wanting higher IQ video, continuous video doesn't seem to be mandatory, so what's the problem here? I think some people just love to hate Canon.

Yep. It looks like the best FF camera for video is still Panasonic SH1

Since everyone is testing recording limits now, I did a little test of my own.
Samsung Galaxy S20+ records 42 minutes of 8k video straight.

According to Jordan overheating was a problem exactly in making of dpreview tv episode

OK, let's wait until Canon makes R1C - new generation of 1DC, designed for video first and foremost, with no recording limit.

DuxX: Great camera body, fantastic AF with many features aaaand worst lens line-up on the market today... pity.
But for couple of years when smaller and lighter pro f1.4 primes come this will be excellent system. Till that I am going to another brand.

Wait for third party to catch up. APO Lanthar lenses are amazing, and no issues ever with firmware and AF - no firmware, no AF.

Melindra: Why didn't you record the guests audio also, on a seperate lav going to an audio recorder?

Seems like a strange decision for a video camera review by a video guy (Jordan).

For fun mostly, judging from the video

Remember Canon 1DC? The first 4k DSLR.

It is a huge camera with big heatsink, designed primarily for video. Perhaps Canon should do the same here. Create a huge RF camera with R5 sensor, with integrated grip and really big heatsink, and active cooling to boot. And that would be camera for hybrid shooters, while R5 mostly for stills with occasional video.

Great camera.
