Who designed this thing?

Link | Posted on May 25, 2017 at 07:56 UTC as 19th comment | 2 replies

I think that the design of something new from a blank sheet of paper is far more expensive for manufacturers with a long history and consequently culture. In some cases suggests an obsession more or less...
Either way this is not a welcomed cost .

Looks "something is rotten in the state of Danmark" or should I write Leicamark..?

At least they made clear to themselves what they really like/aim to do as a company.

Communication is a very difficult matter!
Especially if you try to make a living out of it.
More specifically if you find it harsh to explain even to yourself the meaning of what you claim/propose...
If u cannot make clear the parameters of what you want to compare.
If the side parameters of what you compare are mixed with the main ones just "because"...
Then you 're ending up in an article because of which the vast majority of readers looking at you rather suspiciously. And the editors are posting in less than 24 hours, 30 replies apologizing or clarifying...
And readers write bad bad things about you...
Don't you feel ashamed DPR..?
(It is the third time, or fourth, in less than 18 months you received a barrage of bad critics, sheer masochism cannot stand as an excuse any more, I guess)...

aris14: I 'd like this hands-on to give me a hint on how they managed the weight reduction.

C'mon guys, Sony's engineers managed weight reduction up to 50% to the competition, not 50 grams...

In reply to:

GabrielFFontes: Seriously, this format of review is the most confusing and unprofessional choice I've seen made by dpreview. Please revert back to the old style.

I think it's enough for cams which come as a batch in every brand's range for marketing reasons.

cosinaphile: the absurdly small 1/2.3 sensor with its poor performance lousy iso latitude and sub par pixel area about 28 sqmm for its 12 mp seems rather ungenerous for a camera costing 450 usd before taxes... i do understand that these tough
amphibious cameras have special needs and limitation related to hermetic sealing and a long history of using these tiny sensors [as do many superzooms] ....but i think its time to move forward and use a 1 1.7 [43 sq mm] or 2\3 [ 58 sq mm] at a minimum

these refreashes are meaningless untill advances in resolution and image quality start appearing .... this class of useful cameras deserve better

The niche for these cams seems to be a mixture of gadget fans, outdoor activities enthusiasts and amateurs who like underwater photography. No manufacturer is going to invest in this niche. Consequently this cam is overpriced, as all cams alike in this class.

Arastoo Vaziri: That's Jane Bown. People keep misspelling her name, calling her 'Brown' or 'Bowen', but that's wrong. It's Bown.
You can't praise Sir Cecil Beaton highly enough. Some of his portraits are simply mesmerizing. Unfortunately, no photographs by him feature in this article (nor by Jane Bown, which is a shame).
To end my moanings in style: I wish I could unsee Rod Stewart's picture! The 70's were such a terrible era to live.

70's is the mother of what we actually experiencing in our life today, no matter if we like it or not as such... Under this point of view u r absolutely right!

aris14: No matter if photography is the subject in this forum, it is bad manners, to say the least, to show pictures w/o the appropriate caption for the viewers to understand what those people were trying to do at work...

Dear all,
I know exactly what these were people were doing when these pix were shot. What I am saying is that no matter if these pix are hosted in a photography site, facilitating readers/viewers to comprehend what they see thus to make both images and their content approachable in the era context, is a valuable journalistic practice. Producing more clicks for visiting the hosting site may be profitable for all in our days, but it is not a good practice. Of course you don't have to refer in a caption the "story of your life" but something to intrigue the real interest of the viewer, Thx for your interest.

aris14: Great scientific purposed tool.
Icons produced really add in what human eye can see.

As for the comments of "usual suspects"...
1. Digital cameras see better than the human eye back from the Canon Mark I days in 2003 (I am not a Canon fanboy)
2. Apart some special films for scientific and military purposes no film can produce the quality of a descent digicam.
3. Drum scanners in most cases are over appreciated. Slide scanners such as Nikon D Series, for example, deliver excellent results comparing to some drum dinosaurs by far. The same stands for flatbeds such as Epson V Series for scanning printed images.
4. I am not mentioning some more expensive digitizing set ups that put in disgrace all drum scanners (also far cheaper than drum scanners) which setups were also used in the pre-digital era for reproduction purposes both for artwork and slides/negatives (excellent pieces of manufacturing and dinosaurs too as for size).

Così è se vi pare....
(Ιt is so if you think so)...
I really enjoyed your arguments..!
Cheers!

Nice pics from the old days... It is really hard to understand the sheer quality of original pics for people who haven' see the originals of those days...

biza43: With this lens you can opt to have smooth (T5.6 image) or more defined (T6.3) OOF highlights. Gives you both options.

The Batis, GM, etc, the normal lenses, only give you one option.

Some lenses can deliver a "nice" bokeh, some cannot. What a nice bokeh is. lies in the eye of the beholder. One thing I know for sure is that a lot of photographers spend some time post processing their "bokeh", very carefully I should admit...

ZorSy: It seems the market share is more valued than profit. Go figure the 21st Century economics. One big online retailer is to step in to Australia (not to name it but we all know). Their aim is 'not to make profit but to win the market share'!? Seriously?
This will generate a lot of unemployed here because the profit (and the part of THAT is what pays the salaries, which then pay the bills). So if CIPA numbers are the same, where is the truth? Shipments, market share, profit, success, survival - it's all relative. Or just a gamble, hope or even a lie? Hmm, truth for sure it is NOT.

It's more complicated than most people can see. Unfortunately for the human race...

Τhe happy years till '10s resulted in cam's sales growth from people that they did not really wanted a cam. I have a lot of friends with Canikon's etc entry level DSLRs who rarely use them along with some good other non DSLRs cams. Professionals and enthusiast photogs market I guess it's rather steady if not slightly growing but this is not the niche that will reflect in total market growth more than a 5%. Both pros and enthusiasts they use a photo printer for their work, no matter the volume of their work. Photo printers market seems steady if not declining since photos are mainly aimed at web presentation. Technology seems to be decisive only in cell phones which now produce images with IQ comparable to an enthusiast compact cam of 5-10 years ago.
I think that cam manufacturers know very well that the "golden" years is something with an expire label on it, if they don't and cannot manage it they simply cease to exist.
