  1. Some people buy cameras with kit lenses, some buy body only. Different SKU, but same product. A bit more details about some of the recent Sony Semicon FF sensor portfolio: 15MP Exmor R 7.52um 16Bit HS SLVS-EC 8Lane 24MP Exmor R 5.94um 14Bit HS SLVS-EC 8Lane 24MP Exmor RS 5.91um 14Bit DRAM SLVS-EC 8Lane 28MP Exmor RS 5.5um 16Bit SLVS-EC 10Lane 28MP Exmor GS 5.5um 12Bit SLVS-EC 12Lane 30MP Exmor RS 5.31um 14Bit UHS SLVS-EC 8Lane 36MP Exmor RS 4.88um 16Bit HS SLVS-EC 16Lane 42MP Exmor R 4.5um 14Bit SLVS-EC 8Lane 45MP Exmor R 4.35um 14Bit LVDS 12ch 48MP Exmor RS 4.2um 16Bit DRAM SLVS-EC 8Lane 54MP Exmor R 3.96um 14Bit SLVS-EC 8Lane 60MP Exmor R 3.76um 16Bit SLVS-EC 8Lane 100MP Exmor RS 2.91um 16Bit SLVS-EC 8Lane
  2. Another interesting sensor from Sony Semiecon, a 48MP FF sensor with diagonal pixel arrangements, sounds familiar?
  3. A lot brighter (2900nit peak) while having similar black level. No burn-in. Lower cost. The 65inch model is about 2200EUR.
  4. Hisense just announced an HDR display with "Dual Cell" technology from BOE, it's a 4K display but with a 1080P monochrome panel "sandwiched" between the 4K panel and backlight unit, essentially offering over 2 million backlight "zones" (1 zone per 4 pixels). Peak brightness is quoted to be 2900nit with over 150000:1 static contrast ratio. It's also the world's first panel to be able to reproduce 16bit gradation. Current size is only 65in, but there are plans to introduce 55in and smaller sizes.
  5. The new 54MP FF BSI is low cost, has relatively high speed (full sensor readout at 12bit 25.6fps), and very fast AF with dedicated AF lane.
  6. Sony Semicon readies a whole new portfolio of sensors for consumer stills cameras: 15MP FF BSI 30MP FF BSI Stacked 48MP FF BSI Stacked 54MP FF BSI 25MP 4433 MF BSI 50MP 4433 MF BSI
  7. A9 II and a RX 1inch camera will be the first cameras to be equipped with Exmor RS sensor.
  8. It's all to do with FOV. A 50mm 2x anamorphic lens has a horizontal FOV equivalent of a 25mm spherical lens. On a GFX, a 63mm lens has an FOV equivalent of a 50mm lens. Some people call it "grandness".
  9. Magic Lantern does 14bit RAW
  10. It's an H.265 decoding issue, nothing to do with X-T3. H.265 files shot on GoPros have the same problem.
  11. The primary reason for Sony to introduce global shutter to consumer digital stills cameras is to completely eliminate mechanical shutter (no shake).
  12. The pixel size is actually 3.76um, the 60MP FF sensor, IMX455, is already being sold to third parties, including Zcam E2 F8, Nikon and Pentax.
  13. On a Sony sensor, the only ways to reduce rolling shutter is to readout fewer pixels (especially vertically) and drop readout bitdepth.
  14. I was wrong about the readout methods on GFX100. In 4K, it supersamples the full width of 11604 pixels, and vertically line-skips 2/3 from 6527 pixels, resulting in a final bayer of 11604 x 4352 pixels at 11bit, then it's downscaled to 4K UHD/DCI. 4K rolling shutter is around 30ms. Stills mode electronic shutter scan rate is 1/6s.
  15. I believe one of the first Exmor GS sensors is 42MP FF IMX651, DR is similar to A9.
  16. If you want reliable continuous video AF, forget adapters. Go with Fuji's f/2 primes or f/2.8 zooms.
  17. Funny that they shoot film simulations at DR100 and complain about the limited dynamic range.
  18. 100MP 44 x 33 IMX461 is the latest one. We might see a 170MP one in 2021.
  19. IMX555 is a FF sensor and won't be out till 2020.
  20. No. It's a speed-oriented sensor line-up with the elimination of mechanical shutter mechanism in mind. And it'll likely to be Sony exclusive for a while. I'm fairly sure X-H2 will move onto the 2.91um gen 43MP Exmor R.
  21. This is exactly what happens when pan axis is locked, instead of follow.
