Around the 3:40 timestamp Drew showcases what a few of us here on CR have been talking about: using DPAF to derive a depth map and use that to do 3D reconstruction of the scene. I hope this gets wider support (Adobe, DxO) so we can have better masking and fake bokeh.

Good catch.

DPRaw is useless, but only for now I believe.

I have been shooting in DPRaw mode since it became available (except when I need fps) beacuse I am sure one day it will help to get noticeably better images. with AI or whatever software.

Then I can reprocess my most loved images. what I shoot only happens once. Youbhave tobthink long term when you shoot for a long term project.

There is the option to get twice the data in a raw, I'd be crazy not to use it, even if it has been useless for now. That actually might be a reason to get the R1 over the R5 II, as it should maitain bugfer much better with 200 MB raws ..

If we get 4 times bigger raws with the QDAF sensor, I'll take them too.

I would use the crap out of that
