Hi all!

A petition is now online against the Star Eater.

It has been proposed by myself and reviewed by Laurent Laveder, Thierry Legault, Ian Norman, Damian Peach, Aaron D. Priest and Babak Takeshi.

We invite you to sign it and share it all around:

Fred, I signed your petition. However, if it had been me, I would have called the thread "petition to Sony" rather than "against". Just sayin'...

Longshot but I just sent a message to Neil Degrasse Tyson on his site asking him to sign the petition. Here's what I wrote:

----------------------

I'm a photo and astronomy enthusiast who uses Sony cameras to take photos of the night sky. Sony currently implements a noise-reduction feature in their cameras that filters out stars from long exposure photographs. A change.org petition has been started asking Sony to change this algorithm. Having someone of your passion, dedication, and visibility would go a long way in helping us convince Sony of this change. Could you please visit the petition and add your name?

Here is the link:

Thanks so much!

I just signed it as well. It is sometimes puzzling that we, as Sony camera users, have to "beg" Sony to allow improvement in generating image quality of the cameras to be incorporated. Yes, the improvement targets a small portion of users but still... The effort on Sony's part seems to be minor and it can be easily implemented in a new firmware, unless I am missing something here.

The petition just turned 1000 signatures a few hours ago, after being only 4 days online.


Thank you all :hello2:


But the "quest" is not ending, the petition shall now be shared as widely as possible, in particular in the printed and online photography and astronomy magazines/blogs. If you know journalists or blogs editors, keep them aware !


You are also invited to ask authors of reviews of the A6000, A6300, A6500, A7 mk I and II, A7S mk I and II, A7R mk I and II and A9 to warn the reader of the Star Eater issue. For example no mention is made on the Star Eater issue in the reviews of DxoMark, Ken Rockwell, DPReview... this is misleading ! One request will not make them change their reviews, but several requests...
