You'll find that the really good examples shared around of impressive dynamic range are from those who know how to use Luminosity Masking to edit specific parts of their images in very specific ways. They spend hours on an image, selecting 3 different types of shadow sections, treating them each differently for sharpening & noise reduction. You really need unbiased comparisons of RAW images taken straight out of cameras to tell the truth of it, as comparing jpegs is not a truthful thing either! jpegs have the companies selected treatments applied to them, that's why some people love the Leica look, or the Pentax look, or the Nikon, or Sony look, because of the way the jpegs are treated in camera, with the different types of sharpening, noise reduction, vibrancy, saturation, contrast, etc... that each maker applies.I really like the videos from Ethan Mitchell... he was one of the reason I went with the anafi over the mavic, tho I have to say I am liking the dynamic range ppl are getting out of the mavic pro 2, tho it does cost more than 2x of the anafi.
Pretty dang close! There's more trickery applied to the M2P, which is why it also loses some sharpness & colour accuracy when RAW (DNG) images are analysed. The M2P is 1/2.3" & the Anafi is ever so slightly smaller at 1/2.4". Compared to my full frame camera (the big orange bit), it's tiny, here's a visual comparison of just how small they are.So the anafi and mavic pro 2 both have the same size sensor?
Unfortunately, 1" is not actually 1". It's a hangover from old video capture technology that allows you to claim 1", when it's actually a 1" tube equivalent which is actually 16mm across the diagonal of the sensor.Everything i read says it has a 1" sensor so would sit with the P4 (have read it shares the same sensor as the P4), while the anafi sensor is just a shade smaller than the original mavic pro
The common 1" circular video camera tubes had a rectangular photo sensitive area about 16 mm diagonal, so a digital sensor with a 16 mm diagonal size was a 1" video tube equivalent. The name of a 1" digital sensor should more accurately be read as "one inch video camera tube equivalent" sensor. Current digital image sensor size descriptors are the video camera tube equivalency size, not the actual size of the sensor. For example, a 1" sensor has a diagonal measurement of 16 mm.
This is interesting! I've only gotten to 6:37 of it, but I will keep watching it all, my interest is piqued!
I was so close to getting the M2P, but the more I investigated the Anafi, the better she looked in many regards!He goes on a bit... very repetitive but yes, I watched it all last night (while watching cricket to be honest...).
I very nearly got the P4P instead of the Anafi but that smaller machine and the ease of camera programming/manual control suited me.
Still no regrets... the only frustrations in quality I suspect is due to me not getting settings/filters right yet!
I was speaking to somebody high up at Formatt-Hitech about why they hadn't ventured into drone ND filters not that long ago & apparently they worked with DJI & then "something" happened on DJI's behalf which led to it collapsing! I was informed that the really exciting ND filter research & application is actually in-camera at the sensor. Panasonic & a couple of other camera makers are playing with sensors that have ND filter treatments applied in-camera at the sensor, so there is no image degradation at all, no time needed to work out your exposure length, change the filters as the sun is setting at a frantic rate, etc... I say "bring it on buddy!"I got some cheap and nasty filters... but I suspect I'll get some better ones now that I can see how good this could be
The good thing is that you can upgrade your camera without them noticing! It's when you start adding more & more lenses that they tend to notice! Speaking from experience & the wrath that was incurred afterwards here!I love the sound of that... My A7riii is 12 months old now... seize the opportunity to upgrade
Don't tell the Mrs!!!
Technology should be there to electronically alter the grey in a glass filter. We've been playing with that for year in telco optics... (my main job)
