    JurijTurnsek got a reaction from Emanuel in IMX800 1-inch sensor — Are we nearing the end of dedicated consumer cameras?   
    One of the more striking changes that the smartphones brought, is that the 23mm-ish FOV is now the new "normal" and everything above it labeled at "tele".

    The new OnePlus and Huawei P50 look like they will have very good sensor specs. That takes care of the UWA and WA modules, but to tackle the telephoto lenses, someone will have to bring the extending lens design back and bet on a (very) thick camera hump. With every company just drowning in the dozens of models they offer, one should be a premium photo-first device.

    JurijTurnsek got a reaction from IronFilm in Nikon 8K mirrorless camera (Sony A1 clone)   
    A Nikon A1 clone has all the chances of being the better (selling?) product:
    1. Sony bodies has always been criticized for subpar ergonomics, menus etc.
    2. Compete on price, Sony is very expensive.
    3. No cinema line to protect, so lots of video features.
    4. Nikon colors may suit some people more than Sony's.
    5. Make big claims about weather sealing.
    6. AF should be reasonably good, it doesn't not need to be every superlative ever conceived.
    7. The market is in no rush for 8K, so take the time to make a really robust implementation.
    8. Do some A1 user research, see what they dislike and like after using it.

    For a cinema camera, a tilting-screen would make sense or is vertical video production really that important?

    Why would a vent be needed when a7S already has no overheating? Maybe a sensor with more mp and oversampling?

    It's hard to say it's gone wrong. It's so-called creative destruction. There's simply no need for a mass consumer camera market any more. Every home used to have a camera, be it a compact, a SLR, a Polaroid or whatever. No-one needs those any more because everybody (even the children) has a phone that will take better snaps with fewer skills, in a format that allows instant sharing.

    Yes, the 30 fps is LOSSY compression not LOSSLESS. That is the compressed RAW that all Sonys did until now (A1 is the first with LOSSLESS compressed RAW).

    No, sorry. The lens cover comes off, not the lens. On the Hero8 the lens cover could not be removed.

    The fact of the matter is that in 2020, 4K RAW with no overheating would be much more useful for many professionals and the high resolution sensors should be given to specialty lines and not the workhorse FF body.
    Now you have a superb stills camera, that will suffer from sub-optimal 4K modes and a "halo" 8K (RAW) mode that is going to be to burdensome for a lot of users to take full advantage off.

    And here I am, in my early twenties - so I'm technically a millennial / Generation Y - with my my strong preference towards written word.
    I deeply hate the fact that people nowadays tend to turn their blogs into vlogs, etc.
    For me, having to go to YouTube for a piece of information that could be put clearly in two or three sentences is one of the plagues of 21st century.
    I understand that our hobby - cameras and stuff related to them - is a visual hobby and words can't always be used to show what we mean or to share what we managed to create using our babies.
    Nonetheless, I think that over 30% of YouTube content could easily be transcribed and deprived of audio-visual stimuli and we, as viewers, would only gain from it.
    It's just terribly tiring, how much shit, unneeded clutter there is to almost everything.
    You could say that you save your time, because there are no ads per se, but the amount of in-video marketing and advertising, etc. is terrifying.
     
    But still, not every channel is like this and, surely, there are some that are really worth being subscribed to.
    The amount of knowledge that can be found on YT (if you know what you're looking for) is invaluable and often can't be put into words that easily.
     
    It's a tough nut to crack.

    The EODHD forum's toughest pill to swallow: even the best image quality, the best low light ISO performance, the best AF, the best lightning, the best sound, the creamiest of bokeh cannot sell shitty/niche content. You need a good story/performance or at least a gripping reality soap opera (which can be told by a workhorse HD camera, that has been forgotten by GAS).

    JurijTurnsek reacted to UncleBobsPhotography in Sony Xperia 1 II smartphone - 4K60p H265 "powered by CineAlta"   
    I believe the main problem with a larger sensor is fitting the lens. The S20 Ultra is 8.8 mm thick which is considerably larger than the competition. Making the phone thicker will turn away quite a few consumers.
    The lens thickness is also the main reason why most tele-cameras on smartphones are so bad. They often just use a smaller sensor but with a similar focal length as the main camera. For marketing it seems better to have 3 cameras even if cropping the main camera will give similar results. The S20 Ultra is one of the few exceptions that use a periscope lens, which in theory could be an improvement.

    The S20 Ultra actually has a bigger sensor (1/1.33 instead of 1/1.7), but seems like a failure.  The 960 fps on the S20 ultra is even upscaled 480 fps...
    The S20/S20+ has the same sensor size as the new Sony.

    Vivo details their gyro sensor stabilization - 3x movement compensation in comparison to traditional OIS. Now, the sample video is fishy: comparing against OIS for walking, which is insane, since EIS produces superb results and that should be the benchmark. Anyway, until a reputable reviewer puts it through its paces, you can't really be sure if this is any better than EIS (but should be great when combined).

    If the hyped up specs pan out, the 6K price would not be outrageous. It is a HALO product that will generate a a lot of buzz for the RF mount, just like their extremely expensive lenses. They just need a good R6 to sell to the masses.
    If yo are going to use 8K RAW, you shouldn't balk at that price either, since the expenses don't stop there.

    Yes, the stacked sensor with DRAM is the real reason for the faster sensor readout.  But the cost to include the DRAM on a 108mp sensor is probably too cost prohibitive for a while yet, so in effect the greater MP is limiting the sensor readout speed.  I prefer Sony's approach and hope that others will follow.  We don't need higher MP or 8k for a phone camera.

    The dragged out marketing hype campaign sure points to specs being overhyped. Seems like Canon is creating this awareness of a technologically advanced body for people to form their opinion on it before any real testing is done and then just brush away the caveats with rose colored glasses.
