Re: Sony Does Not Want to Produce Great DSLR's Yet

Here we go again. I pasted here comments from someone and the man from Chicago claims that I wrote them. I don't think that this forum has a chance to become popular for normal people as long as certain kind of personality is allowed here. Why allow polluting this forum? I said before that I will no...

Sony Does Not Want to Produce Great DSLR's Yet

http://photorumors.com/2009/07/13/more-sony-dslr-rumors/ Here are couple of comment under the main article: For J. Smith: Every single Nikon sensor in every single Nikon DSLR was conceived, designed, and manufactured by Sony. As were the boards they were attached to, as are the LCD panels on the bac...

Re: Are DSLR cameras really better than PnS cameras?

The sensors are getting better. EXMOR-R means 2x the sensitivity of conventional CMOS. Sony's new digital processing, which creates one image out of a sequence of several again lowers noise level. People bitch about high pixel count. When you downsize 16 MP, you can get 4 MP picture with low light p...

Re: Wind turbines

I think that you should try slow shutter speed and use a tripod.

Re: A500/550

How about if Sony implements the video (high speed electronic shutter) functionality properly and uses it to take a few frames before you press the shutter? Forget getting real video, but it could start recording frames the moment you touch the shutter, or put your eye to the viewfinder. And how abo...

Re: A500/550

Follow what Sony did with A300 and 350. 50 extra numbers in the model No., 4 extra MP's. 18 MP will put them in the top of the MP race in APS-C. It costs them basically the same to make either model, but allows them to sell one for more. Technology is marching on and Sony may be able to squeeze as l...

Re: dPreview makes ACR exception for Olympus

DP Review is not the only test website that plays favorites and is anti Sony. Check the results of tests of the Sony XMOR-R cameras at Camcorder info, which was started by a teenage girl http://www.pubcon.com/bios/robin_liss.htm, who went on to study business or political science and eventually open...

A500/550

My guess: Sony introduced some new technology in HX1, which allows to take a quick series of shots. These are combined in software to reduce noise in the final picture. This is the feature which Sony will bring to their other platforms, and also the auto panorama mode. These features will be added t...

Re: $1,000 FF Alpha - guess when

ClearVid is used in single sensor Sony cameras. It gives nearly 2x the resolution. It allows Sony to get the same low light capability with 1/3" sensors as from 1/2" withou this technology, because the pixels can be larger. Where did you get this info from? ClearVid is a sensor not just a ...

Re: $1,000 FF Alpha - guess when

$1,000 FF Alpha - Can you guess when? There is no reason why FF should cost more than 2x as much as APS-C. I estimate $2K FF this year, $1,5K next, $1,000 in 2011, even with strong Yen. A1000 will be a pro body. Zeiss is the magent for pros. Pros are the magnet for amateurs. See Sony's market share...

Re: what is the real advantage of the alpha system

Sony's only problem is that they were mismanaged after their founder had a stroke, but they are coming back now with full force. All, and I mean ALL companies that competed with Sony in electronics learned fast that they could not and that they had to play second fiddle. Now the situation is a littl...

Re: what is the real advantage of the alpha system

The real advantage of the Alpha system is the company that is backing it up. Sony! World's most advanced sensor maker. World's foremost miniaturization specialist. World's biggest camcorder maker; 99% of studio film productions are made with Sony digital cinema cameras. With the starting of converge...

New Sony A230, A330, A380, My Opinion

This is what the A200-350 line should have been like from the start. But Sony needed to beef it up a little, to cover the gap between them and A700, also to make A200 look as an upgrade from A100. People think that Sony can't make competitive DSLR's. Just wait for the time, when they complete their ...
