(UPDATED) For rich people only post!

Share

You can get your Leica S2 at amazon for $22,995.00. And if you want a better with 3 inch LCD Sapphire LCD Cover Glass and Platinum Service Package it costs you $27,995.00 only!

I will stick with my good old 12 Megapixel :)

UPDATE: If you want to spend more money get this: Hasselblad H3D-39II, Medium Format Digital SLR Camera with 39mp Sensor & 3

and you can find a funny user review on this item!

I purchased this camera in lieu of paying rent on my apartment for 4 years, and believe me when I say it was worth it. I used the box that it came in as a hat and some other boxes for a home. It’s uncomfortable but the pictures I’ve taken of my new home are so sharp that you can see the fleas on the brick I use for a pillow. I can also take high detail pictures of my children (who I am no longer able to see due to court order resulting from gross negligence) from an acceptable distance. Highly recommended!”  LOL ;)

Focus Numerique posts a G1/GH1/GF1/E-P1 ISO comparison table!

Visit the Focus Numerique website to see the ISO comparison table. The website is written in french but you don’t really need to know the language. Just look the pictures!

http://www.focus-numerique.com/test-97/panasonic-g1-test-bruit-electronique-12.html

For those who do not speak french here you have the google translation in english:

After some tests with a non-permanent housing, we invite you to explore new photos taken in the classic conditions of our tests. GF1 The Panasonic does not offer several levels of noise reduction and we just played with the correction of brightness to see its influence on the management of electronic noise at high sensitivities. As usual, you can view images in full definition by clicking on the thumbnails and download the raw file format (RW2).

The Panasonic is equipped with the same 12 MP sensor as the Panasonic G1. However, the chip image processing is a Venus Engine HD (identical to that of GH1 this time).
As on the previous model, the electronic noise is well managed up to ISO 800, the sheep is certainly noticeable at ISO 200 and 100% on screen, but it is virtually indistinguishable on an HDTV monitor 1080 in full screen or an A4. The grain is, logically, more and more prevalent with the increase in sensitivity, but images remain many details until ISO 800 and prints are perfectly usable even in A3 +. We note, however, the presence of flat colors in the uniform areas (already observed at ISO 400 on screen at 100%).
Beyond ISO 800, the colored bands are more visible, but at ISO 1600 the images were still holding. At ISO 3200 things are a bit more complicated: the grain is coarser and more colorful (always in the form of strips). The details are somewhat diluted, but with a bit of post scanning (with raw files in particular), it is possible to have more than respectable results on a A3 +.
With the brightness correction enabled, the presence of electronic noise is more pronounced in standard mode, the pixels are more colorful and visible images at 1600 ISO less convincing. In high mode, the sheep is much more visible and details deteriorated to 1600 and especially ISO 3200. Use sparingly so …

(FT3) Olympus E-5 will use the Fuji SuperCDD sensor?

olympus-e-5 Fake image of an Olympus E-5

-

One source reports that the Olympus E-5 could use the new Fuji SuperCDD sensor. He is a good source that’s why I post it.
This rumor sounds a little more credible now that we know Fuji is joining the MicroFourThirds System!

The E-3 is still in Stock in most big online shops like amazon.com (heavy discounted). Recently some bigger price drops has been seen in Germany.
