I don't really like this new style of treatment, desaturate, overexposed sky and blueish tint.
rtogog: How to hold this camera when taking picture?
with your hands ;)
AliRoust: This computer's LCD only displays about 67% of the Adobe RGB color space. And, you can only see 8 bit color!! For this price tag it's simply ridiculous. For those photographers and graphic designers that have worked in a 10 bit color space and have high end monitors ( such as NEC, EIZO, Lacie) displaying 98% of Adobe RGB, this is a major downgrade... By that I mean, going from about 1 billion colors to 16.7 million. All that "Retina" labeling sounds good but definitely doesn't look good...Apple makes no LCD, laptop or computer that can accommodate that!? Yet their prices are up there...Unfortunately for those of us who have seen 10 bit images, there is no going back.See my detailed review under comment section on Amazonhttp://www.amazon.com/Apple-MacBook-ME294LL-15-4-Inch-Display/product-reviews/B0096VD85I/ref=cm_cr_pr_hist_2?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addTwoStar&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending
who cares about 10bit images for sharing ? Unless all people on Facebook, google+ and other socail network have true 10bits full rgb screen, a laptop editing is more than enough.
The kit zoom doesn't seem very collapsible . The pana 12-64 is really collapsible, this zoom is quite big.
With thit hat, he's really a gear head :)
Adrian Harris: OMG - it simply blows away the Canon 5D Mk111 for showing fin detail, even in very low light - wow. Now that did surprise me!
It's not a surprise, the A7 is 36mpx without AA. It's competitor is the D800E, not tested with the new scene. The A7 missing too.
but where is the aperture ring on the lense ? This camera is mainly for people with lot of old manual Nikon lenses.
Remember the fith of November, when Nikon emerges from the shadow and put fire on DSLR market. Kinda a revolution.
abortabort: New 15mm f1.7 'Leica' with aperture control on the lens + GM1 surely is the biggest sign yet of a Leica rebadge of exactly that combo.
Since Leica rebadge Panasonic camera, i bet there is a GM1 with this lense came form Leica in not time. Just 600$ more for the audi design and Leica logo ;)
TTran510: Was going to replace my E-PM1 with the GM1 but I saw a picture of a camera the size of the GM1 but with a EVF. Think it's the Lecia m43 body so I'm going to wait for it. That body with the 15mm 1.7 would be the perfect camera to bring everywhere.
It's the panasonic LF1, a small sensor big zoom camera.
Greg Lovern: @Allison Johnson:
Can you please show us a picture of the GM-1 side-by-side with the Pentax Q7?
I own a Pentax Q and the small size of this GM1 is impressive. The Q is my favorite always-with-me compact camera, it take very good photos with the prime.
thx1138: Shouldn't that be minimum shutter speed 1/16000, not maximum shutter speed which is 60s. Actually you have them interchanged in the specs.
maybe, but photographers are not very aware of reality :)
I'm sure that Appetizing food and cute dessert are a dream for food porn lovers, but i prefer HDR and panorama modes.
munro harrap: We have to wait and see how the theory works in practice. I use an R1 still, at base iso in RAW it is excellent, and have been waiting for this since then. But I am puzzled because if the 1" sensor allows a max of 5472x3648, and the sensor is square, how come there is no max resolution available (according to you) of 5472x5472? There should be, indeed there must be, because otherwise the sensor is not square at all!!!.
What exactly IS going on here? Have Sony stupidly chosen to limit resolution, in which case we can all wait until Nikon grab the sensor improve the image processing as they always do and market their own version complete with 5472x5472 and we can bin our Hasselblad film bodies for good!
More accurate information please!
1" is a trick. Sensor size is 13.2 x 8.8 mm. http://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/24952/why-is-a-1-sensor-actually-13-2-8-8mmIt's more or less a Super 16mm Film Frame size.
1" sensor area is ~120mm²µ4/3 sensor area is ~225mm²APS-C sensor area is ~370mm²FF sensor area is ~860mm²
shaunly: looks like a real winner here. Good job Sony. The 7R seems great for landscape photographer like myself looking to save weight when we go backpacking. With a few right lenses, I may just sell the D800.
Can't wait for the test results!
It's E-mount, so you can put E-mount to nikon adapter and use all your nikon lenses, albeit in manual focus peaking mode and aperture mode.
jenbenn: Excuse me, whats the point? If I compare this Sony to the Canon 100D with a Sigma 18-200 superzoom, a combination of only slightly bigger size and and higher weight, the latter will offer higher IQ and better dof control due to its Aps-C sensor and more versatility due to its interchangeable lens system. Above all its cheaper than this sony. So again: Why would and should anbody chose this superzoom compact?
Why choosing a super-zoom ? Better video with mic in and hearphone jack, no fear of dust in the sensor, 24-200 f2.8 zeiss zoom, top lcd, aperture ring. Why choosing a 4x4 over a city car ? it's simply different usage.
Impressive, Sony gather all good ideas from others camera and put it in a all-in-one camera. wide-tele constant zoom, quite big sensor, top lcd, direct exposure compensation wheel, mic and headphone jack (very rare in other camera), aperture ring, wifi. All you need is 1300$ :)
Master Yoda: Yes, the ASPC sensor would be nice . . . yes an even longer zoom would be nice . . . yes the price is a bit steep . . . YES they are going to sell a TON of these!
Oh yes, a 20-1000 F2.8 constant APS-C bridge the size of a match box. Law of physics ? who cares :) :)
Shunda77: Good laaaawwd!! that's expensive!
Yeap, but it's a 24-200 f2.8 zeis sonar and top evf and lcd, with a 1" sensor.
When some manufactuer make mirrorless camera, Nikon make an oilless one :)
