Feather-light heavyweights


If, in the end, on the size? PHOTOGRAPHY compares four current mirrorless system cameras with very different sensors: from 1/2 , 3-inch to APS-C model.vergrößern With Pentax and Nikon are two new companies joined the circle of the unwitnessed providers who take in contrast to Olympus and Panasonic, Samsung and Sony from the concept of large distance sensors.vergrößern Pentax keeps miniaturization in all its consequences: the sensor with a diagonal of just 7.8 mm corresponds to the size in the compact segment, the usual 1/2 , 3-inch image intensifier.strongPorträt./strong (von l. nach r.: Nikon 1 V1, Olympus PEN E-PM1, Pentax Q, Sony NEX-5N)Die Bildgestaltung ist Sache des Fotografen, auch die richtige Schärfe und bedingt das Bokeh. Für unseren Test wollten wir jedoch nicht das Model vor oder den Fotografen hinter der Kamera auf die Probe stellen, sondern das Potenzial im Innern der spiegellosen Systeme. Durch die Menüs tasteten wir uns vor, aktivierten die Gesichtserkennung und das passende Motivprogramm. Wie unterschiedlich die Kameras mit dem grün dominierten Licht klarkamen, zeigen unsere Bildergebnisse. Unser Dank gilt Model Anja, die trotz unzähliger Aufnahmen mit unseren vier Kandidaten weder die Geduld noch ihr Lächeln verlor. Unser Favorit in dieser Disziplin ist die Olympus E-PM1. Sie setzt die Hauttöne am besten um und zeigt ein harmonisches Bokeh. Die Sony NEX-5N gibt die Farben etwas blasser wieder, die Nikon 1 V1 sowie die Pentax Q lassen sich zu stark vom Grün der Umgebung beeinflussen. Die Gesichtserkennung funktionierte bei Pentax und Olympus am besten, Sony lag schon mal daneben, auch Nikon traf die Schärfe nicht hundertprozentig. Für alle Aufnahmen wählten wir ISO 200, Nikon belichtete zwischen 1/50 und 1/60 s bei Blende f/5. Olympus belichtete konstant mit 1/60 s und variierte die Blende laut EXIF-Daten zwischen f/4, 2 und f/4, 7. Die Pentax entschied sich zwischen 1/125 s bei f/2, 5 und 1/160 s bei f/2, 2. Schliesslich die Sony: Hier wählte die Automatik Zeiten zwischen 1/80 und 1/100 s und Blenden zwischen f/4, 5 und f/5. Also externally the ajar to the car 110 digital camera system is now continuing this consistently and is 57.5 x 98 x 31 mm (H x W x D) currently by far the smallest member on the mirror-image surface lots. In the second newcomer this Nikon line, however, is not apparent. Although the 1 V1 is the greatest candidate in the current field test, called the CX format sensor with a diagonal of about 16.4mm remains with an extension factor of 2.7 for the small screen, however, significantly behind the expectations of Nikon fans who made their displeasure and makes no bones complained bitterly on forums over the sensor format.

vergrößern strongRauschen und Details./strong Je kleiner der Sensor in unseren Testkandidaten ist, desto früher beginnt das System zu rauschen, beziehungsweise gehen Details aufgrund der Rauschunterdrückung verloren. Bei der Pentax setzt ab ISO 1.600 ein störendes Rauschen ein, die Details gehen ab ISO 3.200 verloren. Das Rauschverhalten der Nikon 1 ist geringfügig besser, sie büsst ihre Details ab ISO 6.400 ein. Die Olympus PEN verliert erste Details bereits bei ISO 800, Rauschen wird aber nicht vor ISO 6.400 als störend empfunden. Am besten schneidet hier die Sony ab, die überhaupt erst ab ISO 6.400 erste leichte Auswirkungen zeigt.

Olympus is fine, but...

Canon and Nikon are the kings in terms of variety of lenses and innovation. When you buy a serious camera, you shouldn't think of it as a single purchase. Instead, think of it as one of many purchases. I bought my first Canon camera and lens in 1998. I have since purchased three more Canon (digital) cameras and some lenses, yet my first lens and some of the accessories from 1998 still work on my latest Canon camera. And I know that any investment I make now in a nice lens won't be lost when I buy my next Canon DSLR in a year or two.
Olympus, by contrast - what variety of lenses do they offer? Will they be putting out the most innovative products in 5 years?

  • Avatar There'sASpiderOnYourFace How do I know if external flash is compatible with my DSLR?
    Apr 16, 2013 by There'sASpiderOnYourFace | Posted in Photography

    I have an Olympus E420 DSLR camera 10mp. Quite old, bought it in 2011.

    I want to get a bounce head flash for it. I'm new to using accessories like this with my camera, but when I get really close to my subje …ly sure its what I need before I buy it.

    Thanks in advance for any answers.

    • Good question. It says it's compatible with olympus and 2011 isn't too old. I would assume it will be fine, your camera has a shoe mount on the top and that is what your flash needs.

  • Avatar Bill Jensen What are some good underwater cameras?
    Feb 27, 2011 by Bill Jensen | Posted in Photography

    I have a price range of no more than $450.
    I don't have a camera, so I can't just buy an underwater housing.
    When I say underwater camera, what I really mean is scuba diving camera, waterproof to at least 100 ft.

    • Waterproof cameras scare me because I hear FAR too often about leaks, even when they are brand new.

      Unless you pay a LOT of money, your waterproof camera will be a little P&S, so don't expect miracles from it - the quality of most shots will be so-so at best.
