Pros

Könnyen kezelhető, nagyon megkönnyíti az észlelést.

Cons

Sajnos elég drága, főleg így, hogy kiszámíthatatlan melyik szenzor mennyit és hogyan bír.

Summary

Junius 17. kaptam meg a kamerát, talán egy órányi üzemidő van benne. Sajnos szerencsétlenségemre már most, egy hónap után pixelhiba jelentkezett a szenzoron. Ugynevezett 'hot pixel' NAgyon zavaró, mivel majdnem a szenzor közepén van, élőképnél zavar és sajnos általában a készített képben benne van. Szoftveresen javítható, de ehhez külön 'dark' képet is kell készítenem, amit nem minden esetben szeretnék. Bolthoz fordultam segítségért, tájékoztatásért, ez garanciális hibának számít-e. Nem számít annak a bolt szerint. Sajnos. Egy hasznos írást találtam a problémáról : https://pixinfo.com/cikkek/alapfokon-hibas-pixelek/. A megnyugtató az lenne, ha gyártó ezt a hibát bevállalná, akkor nagyon tudnám ajánlani. Így nem tudom, talán egy jobb minőségű kamerával jobban járhat az ember, bár ki tudja ki mit gyárt manapság.
