Game changing features
« on: January 18, 2010, 07:44:51 AM »
There is a talk over at Dyxum I thought was interesting.

Some "game changing features" listed by Alex Karasev in particular caught my attention.

His list makes sense for the pros but as an amateur I wouldn't mind having some in-body tilt capability and the Arca-swiss compatible quick release plates built into the verticle grip would also make sense.
The A900 had a good start like FF in body anti-shake and 100% VF. It would be nice to see some more in its successor.

I agree, Sony is doing their own moving and shaking.

The in-camera hdr of the A500's looks brilliant (not in favour of the SD card thing on the A500's). I'm sure in-camera HDR will be in the next generation of the upper echelon of the Alpha's. I'm sure there'll be enhancements, and incremental improvements to it.

I'm sure 3D will change the SLR photographic topography, see Sony and Fujifilm. Can you imagine having to buy two 24-70mm CZ's? Or two 135mm STR's? It'll be a dream come true for CZ and Sony!

I haven't looked into 3D DSLR much but on the surface unless the zoom lens is power zoom I don't see how you can use two of them at least in the middle zoom range. Prime lens would work as a pair.
