mikesco: I would suggest adding photo's at ISO 640 and especially at ISO 16,000 for comparison. From a review I watched it seams to indicate that this camera has dual ISO and that those are the base ISOs. An image at an ISO of 16,000 will be cleaner and have more dynamic range that an image at 12,800.

photo + photo + … = photos

PhotoKhan: This lens can not be optically optimized for both the EF and the RF Canon mounts. One has to give.

bizi clop: Hi, the .DNG file is broken, it's almost empty!

You are missing a zero: it's not 3-thousands, it's 32-thousands of ISO goodness (or badness)! :)

ShaiKhulud: (Fairly) happy URSA EF owner here.

Wait for the initial reviews from trusted independent sources. As good as BM cameras are, they are full of nasty and unexpected caveats. And that's personal experience. Also software in movie cameras by BM is hit and miss (but kinda okay for the price, I guess).

With 12k 80mp monster in Ursa Mini form-factor I expect some heat management problems that will make even Canon R5 shine. I mean, my bigger URSA 4K is prone to overheating during long shooting hours (4-5 hours on set taking 1-5 min takes), and there is a problem with heat associated sensor noise too, at least on Ursa and Pocket 6K.

But okay, cool flex BM. And, as expected, very good price.

This camera is quite big enough to have two more ports: "hose in: cold water" and "hose out: warm water". Or maybe another slot for tea leaves/coffee beans. :)

Indeed, it's because no other gallery on DPReview hosts an ISO 32000 image. :)

Melindra: Guys, find someone who knows how to properly demonstrate an ultra wide.

So what's the conclusion, what was sexist? The "guys" or the "demonstrate an ultra wide [lower limbs' angle]" or something else? Non-native Engrish reader here.

Ms Swine, could you be a bit less cryptic?

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/guy#Usage_notes says:

“In plural, guys is not completely gender-neutral but it may refer to people of either sex in some circumstances and forms; the greeting “Hey guys”, or any vocative utterance, can generally refer to people of either gender. Referring to a group as “guys” usually means a group of men or a mixed-gender group.”

Apparently Pro is not yet dead - you just have to use it twice to make sure your product is _really_ pro. :)

In reply to:

Androole: I have to respect the technical innovation here, but this is just getting a bit absurd.

Making compelling compositions that feel natural that are wider than ~20mm is often a challenge.

9mm is just bonkers, and a rectilinear perspective that is that wide is really extreme and unnatural. The edge-stretching associated with such a wide FoV is just crazy (as you can see in their samples).

If you see perspective distortion, just go much closer to your display, like to distance of a few centimeters. Or print/project it very-very large and watch from an otherwise "proper" distance. Or just shot brick walls with it. :)

But when will they publish a video or anything of the dark side of the Sun?

Always good advice @ DPR 😃 !

Maybe someone could suggest a matching microphone to be used for social distanced chats at 2000mm. :)

In reply to:

SmilerGrogan: This is is a word-for-word lifting from the writings of a frequent forum poster named Bob, and grossly misstates the function and purpose of ISO.
Worse still the members of the ISO photo standards committee were not given a chance to respond to the criticism and provide readers with correct information.
Here's a list of people on the committee that need to be contacted before the next article is written. If contact info is needed, let me know.
Scott Foshee (Adobe)
Yoshi Shibahara (Fuji)
Ken Parulski— led the committee that developed the ISO standard for speed measurements (aKAP Innovation).

"professional connection to the ISO committee"
If you have to have to contact the people who made a standard to properly interpret it, then it's not a very good standard…

On article How HDR display could change your photography forever (220 comments in total)
In reply to:

entoman: I'm wondering how HDR screens will affect *existing* images.

For example, the effects of cloning, healing and other post-processing techiques, rely to some degree on *standard* 4k monitors to disguise artefacts.

Will HDR monitors make these normally "unapparent artefacts" of editing more obvious?

Will subtle differences in tone between cloned areas and their surroundings, that were disguised by the higher contrast of existing displays, suddenly be more apparent?

Or will they be *less* obvious?

@wcan There are some very black coatings created which reflect only 1%…0.1% of light, so theoretically you could make black and white prints with 1:1000 contrast ratio.

I wonder what took so long. Modifying
available_framerates = [25,29.97,50,60]
to
available_framerates = [24,25,29.97,50,60]
?
