It's a shame that most of the LR tests are done wide open only, since the tests are so good there. Let's face it. For the most part, people don't shoot 16-35 IS, 11-24, 14-24, etc. at wide open, but more likely f/5.6-f/11, so I'd love to see the lenses tested at say f/7.1 (enough to avoid too much diffraction but also to get more of a sense of landscape shot performance). (and when you do shoot f/4 and faster and especially f/2.8 and faster, wide open, you are not as often caring about the edges corners as when stopped down a bit)
True, they will likely be closer at f7/8. But obviously the 11-24 is going to be bad-ass whatever, and likely better than the 16-35 f4 for instance.
Does this mean we should be debating the DR of autofocus chips? :O
:-) They certainly seem to have DR on their minds.... I bet the R & D area has DR on their Coffee mugs :-)
Where did you see anything discussing DR in the patent? I waded thru most of it and saw no mention of DR.
"the design priority of these cameras was to produce the highest possible stills resolution, therefore some video functions were sacrificed. "
More details given. For instance: "This can be combined with Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB) to capture two, three, five or seven-shot sequences at different exposures".
Edit: I believe that we were expecting just 3...
"JPEG images are captured at the selected crop setting while RAW files are captured full-frame with the crop shown in DPP, allowing for fine adjustment afterwards".
Maybe the reason for max 5fps.
If we consider the rumor over a 18 megapixel camera, 12 frames per second, video 4K, double CFast card slot, it fits well in a hypothetical 5D Cinema.
Although I believe that Canon can limit it to 10 photos per second, not to eat the sales of 1D series.
4K/5K is a bit of a mess right now. As I understand it, DisplayPort 2.0 needs to be brought on-line to fully support the resolution at 60Hz and up. Last I read, there is really no movement on the 2.0 standard yet.
Current 4K/5K monitors are using 1 DisplayPort 1.2 to get 30Hz and (2) cables to get 60Hz. Some monitors flake out if the cable is cheesy.
The Dell 4K has a firmware issue- wake from sleep.
Is there a direct correlation between color bit depth and the color gamut?
I read that to enable a 10 bit workflow, proper hw and sw are needed, is it the same for 8bit+frc panels?
