  • Agreed, some of the wide shots look horrible with fringing, almost looks like lens decentering.

    What is more apparent to me is the horrible JPG processing. The G series usually have RAW though,...

  • Thinking more about it, and looking at some of my bright sunlight photos, I could probably get by with 1/4000th, given the lower base ISO settings.... *tempting*

  • Yes, bright primes in sunlight. Though, even at F2.0 or F2.8, if you are shooting in direct sunlight, shutter speeds can be a problem. On my D700 I shoot ISO 125 to get by (at 1/8000th often). ...

  • Even if you use an external recorder, there are benefits of piping the lineout of that recorder to get the audio internally in the recorded footage. Reviewing footage is one of them.

  • I'm mixed, besides the 1/4000 and flash sync of 1/200, two things that I actually will run into, it seems like a huge upgrade from the D700, which I'm also an owner looking for a...

  • Depth of field will be the same, angle of view will be different (making you have to use a different focal length or distance to subject) :P

  • Just a few months? Sweet. Must be a firmware upgrade right?

  • Just a few months? Sweet. Too bad the new 7S missed out by just a few months :(

  • Ever seen a set of a TV news broadcast? You'll see cameras with big viewfinders on wheeled tripods. They'll look kind of similar. This like a mini/cheap version of that. big screen so that you...

  • And more people to shake the camera while filming :( I wish they rather had a wireless API so that any mobile device/tablet could get the pertinent data and change settings without being tethered.

  • minus overlap, I wonder how many GP the final image is, probably closer to 8gigapixel.

    Neat shot, I like that it includes the tower, very good! I kind of wish they used a 180mm or longer though :)

  • Source, all insider info I've heard, has been that the unit will be more than the body.

  • Judging by pentax's only other mirrorless model, I'm not too keen on a mirrorless MF body... it'd be the same size as the mirror one and look really goofy

  • Commented on Panasonic DMC-GM1 preview

    Looks like a simulation, and it doesn't look right. The 14mm should be much wider "looking" on the GM1, look at the lens' mount, on the GX1, the 14mm is sticking out over the sides of the mount,...

  • Not that I disagree that the sports market is going to be dslr for a while, but Sigma makes lens' for many makers, what's stopping them from bringing their lens' to FF E-Mount? If FF E-Mount or...

  • Given the constant aperture zoom lens', it's very compact (the lens barrel doesn't stick out like a sore thumb), color me impressed. Good job Oly!
