Two Sony RX10 III Sample Images, Untouched JPEGs, Gives Me Pause.

by Anura Guruge

These two ‘Out of the Camera’ (OCC) JPEGs, by famous U.S. photographer Steve Huff, using a pre-release Sony RX10 III, at the U.S. announcement on March 30, 2016, in San Francisco, gave me pause for thought. There were, of course, other images in the set, by Steve Huff, that were very good.

This is at 600mm zoom and the seal looks OK. Just not impressed with how the rocks in the background look. Not, in my opinion, a depth of field (DOF) issue. A tad to fuzzy for my liking. That would bother me.

Yes, I am sure that it could have been easily fixed with Exposure Compensation, but I don’t like amount of shadow on her face.  I would have deleted this image!

In the case of the Sony RX10 III I have to always compare it to my own Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 given that I know it so well. Some of Steve Huff’s pictures are superb and way beyond my capabilities. But I am just looking at the camera, the senor and the optics. I will keep on looking. Just wanted to share.

This is HUGE!

This will revolutionize the entire digital camera industry.

It is NOT new. Lytro Illum, as I talked about way back in January 2015, was pushing this concept.

What is it?

The ability to FIX your exact focusing and depth-of-field — and change it if you want (multiple times and different ways) — AFTER a photograph has been taken, using software.

You will never ever again take a picture that is out of focus!

You can get perfect, spot-on focus, with any depth-of-field effect you want, at home — after the pictures is taken.

Yes, it probably will only work with RAW and I, to-date, have resisted using RAW or even any post-processing.

But this HUGE. I am surprised that I am not seeing more coverage of this.

Stay tuned. This could be the end of fuzzy pictures.

Though I keep on telling myself that I have a tryst with destiny with the Fuji X-T2, I have been itching to get a Panasonic G7. Hhhmmm! Yes, the stock market has been VERY GOOD to me.

But, I just wanted to share this with you in case YOU missed it.
