On article Demand for CMOS image sensors projected to increase (13 comments in total)
In reply to:

ybizzle: I would hope the high end smartphones of the future would utilize the 1" sensor which should have become the norm since the Panasonic CM-1 was released 2yrs ago. One can only dream...

Didn't a Minolta DiMage or whatever it was called, have a right angle mirror to increase the focal length? You know folded optics. This would help in keeping everything slim.

On article DJI reportedly takes majority stake in Hasselblad (191 comments in total)
In reply to:

Charrick1: DJI has been innovating. Hasselblad...not so much (except for the X1D, which is probably the entire reason for this). I have absolutely no qualms with the loss of some "superior Swedish quality" or whatever. I don't automatically think that by virtue of the nationality of ownership, one company is either excellent or it sucks. That mindset is why Leica can rip people off like they do, with their rich victims still smiling because of that "German quality" that somehow no other country can reproduce, even though Leica specs are almost always far behind Japanese and other competitors that have their cameras made in China and elsewhere. (Sometimes, Leica just removes features for fun and charges an even bigger premium.) So I'm not afraid of DJI. I'm actually more afraid FOR DJI. I mean, how well will a $2,500 Phantom 2 Vision+ fly with mahogany propeller blades, chestnut landing skids, and an olive wood top panel...and will the GPS signal be as strong? I guess we'll soon find out!

You could spend 10 years searching through the 'Japanese and other competitors' products in a land fill site and still not find a single Leica!

You just can't help thinking that all they want is the historic Hasselblad brand name. Hope I'm wrong though.

On article CES video: the Panasonic GH5 (76 comments in total)

Did Barney have his mind elsewhere? He looked a bit bemused at times:-)
Pretty impressive camera though.

Fake news. . .

Noticed the weight has taken a significant jump:
GH4 560gm
GH5 725gm

Probably a huge copper heat sink to keep cool that impressive spec:)

Thank goodness they removed that pop up flash. It's a full blooded video camera at last!

Great, when my Otus wheres out, I'll just strip it down and use it as a wrench. Perfect.

No doubt an optical masterpiece, but oh so heavy.

Nice set of pics. Nothing to worry about with this sensor.

Just add IBIS, 4K, include a couple fast primes and this could slow the Sony juggernaut.

Just a little disappointed:(

Although not my favourite lens, I think my Batis 85 could be sharper but my Otus 85 is just a step up in every way. Really need some further samples to be sure though.

Nice set of pics BTW.

Too right, Jean-Claude Van Damme!

If I read this correctly that's 48Mpixel for monochrome and hence 12Mpixel for colour.

Probably best not to ask!

Well done Apple and that's from an Android man!

Image enhancement by software is only just getting started. As the processing chips get more and more powerful, who knows what will be achievable.

It was like he was holding his first born! But yes exciting times for us photographers. Great video.

Maybe the camera that sets the tipping point for MF. But personally I would have preferred a compact fixed lens model.
