LarsPolarBear: Not quite sure why people should get excited about this... for these prices you can get other cameras...

e.g. Oly E-PL7 with underwater casing...

The E-PL7 comes with a small flash which works quite well under water...
This is a m4/3 camera with a proper housing...
There are also good deals for Canon G7x (II) or Oly OMD 10 with Meikon housing availabe. Not sure what they are trying to achieve...

@DavidsfotosDotCom

The camera in the picture is with housing, the camera itself is a slim-compact type

XeroJay: Lotta hate on the new mbp here... Good. If nobody buys it, the price should drop like a stone and I'll get one for less than I expected.

Price drop? Apple?

tireur: Wrong, Apple Germany told me: both cameras have image stabilisation.

@wetsleet

There are 2 types of VCMs, one of which has OIS built-in. VCMs are primarily used for the focusing and/or zooming mechanism of small camera modules.

While both camera modules on the i7+ uses VCM, only the wider one has OIS.

PhotoSenpai: What type of lens do you find most useful for photos from helicopters? What was used in the shots above.? Some great photos above.

Photography is one of my hobbies. Ironically, one of my other hobbies is flying and I own a helicopter and am a private pilot. I get to see some great sights/views; however as I'm the one on the controls, can't do both at once

well, yes, Senpai did say he cannot do both at once.

this is where a camera capable of recording 4K would be of use I guess, since you can set it to record while flying, and grab 8MP stills from some frames and possibly do some stitching to create a panorama.

abi170845: Why not just get a Sony Z series?

Whilst most Z series are IP68, this is MIL STD-810G standard compliant and has shatterproof glass.

It's nice to have a 'flagship' phone with this level of ruggedness, previously only available through the China brand Runbo rugged phones.

On article Ultra-compact: Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II review (549 comments in total)
In reply to:

miksto: Ultra-compact? This camera is not pocketable. Why is it ultra-compact? What is then Sony RX100 line up? Super ultra compact?

The title just seems silly and inadequate in this part.

@milksto

From page 1:
"Between the continuing evolution of the RX100 and a7-series', Sony is on a big roll when it comes to small tech. And in this case, 'small' doesn’t mean 'insignificant'. With many of its recent cameras, Sony has achieved the miniaturization of technology and functionality traditionally reserved for bulkier DSLRs and the like.

With the Cyber-shot RX1R II for example. Sony has somehow managed to cram a high-res electronic viewfinder, a Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm F2 lens and the same full-frame 42MP BSI CMOS sensor and autofocus system from the a7R II into a coat-pocketable body"

Whatever they meant, they did say.

I guess they mean Ultra-compact for a full frame camera. Compared to any other non-rangefinder style full frame cameras, it is relatively small.

rrccad: without the phone support .. what the #($)*&#$ is the point of it?

@rrccad

guess what though?

"It will, however, be equipped with LTE communication facilities, and will be able to send text messages and send and receive data via telephone networks with an appropriate SIM card in place"

It CAN receive SMSes.

people in Japan use e-mail and text most of the time, and most texting apps have built in call functionality, so they're not missing much

In reply to:

lbpix: Yes I too will wait for the X-T2. I love the X-T1's evf better than SLR. Mostly use 14mm and 18-135 zoom, so ovf is no good for me.

you do realize that you can switch the OVF to EVF? a 2.36 million dot EVF with a refresh rate of 85fps? (the XT-1 has 54fps EVF)

love_them_all: I'm gonna hold on and see what the XT2 is like. I like the range finder form factor but I got no real use with the OVF.

In reply to:

ProfHankD: The "interchangeable lens mount" is a bit odd. It looks like it has a very short flange distance which should make adapting any lens to it easy, but the process to change mounts looks fairly awkward. I find Sony E-mount (or even Canon EOS-M) more appealing as a universal mount, but both those are proprietary. I suppose cinema shooters are more likely to use lenses with just one mount anyway, and this makes that one mount choice appear almost native for the body while giving you the chance to change your mind after purchase of the body.

Interesting thing is that there are electronic contacts at the bottom part of the interchangeable mount, so I would assume you get full compatibility (i.e. auto-focus, electronic aperture control, OIS, etc) by using the interchangeable mounts as opposed to using an adapter.

There is the P7800, but probably not included since it has a 1/1.7" sensor.

OBI656: This is hilarious ... LOL ... Polaroid must be in DEEP TROUBLE if they sue GoPro just because of cube shape of those cameras ... Because what's inside of those two cubes is like Fish & Bicycle.

It's not Polaroid that's suing, it's C&A Marketing.

Maybe read the article?
