Ok, Interesting. Will there be an Import Feature to Migrate from LR?

Also, I do not document every Picture: Instead I use LR Descriptive Named Collections (Originally I used IMatch Categories) to document Groups of Pictures.

Will the same be possible in Exposure X, and given that a LR Import feature exists, will it be able to transfer the Collections from LR?

Geir Ove: Why so much foucs and testing on this camera? As a DSLR owner, I bought the Pana FZ1000. It got an excellent Review, and is indeed a terrific camera, but DID NOT get all the focus on this site that the Sony got. Why?

@Hugo808
Game Changer? That's also what the FZ1000 has been called by many reviewers and users: It has replaced DSLR / Interchangeable Lens Cameras for lots of people, myself included.

It's AF system is just phenomenal, beating all my Canon DSLR gear; and sold off it was!

Even so, it did NOT it get this amount focus by DPR. Go figure!

Why not do the same test with the incredible Panasonic FZ-1000. I got it, and it's focus speed is just amazing even in difficult situations:

Flying pigeons: Throwing the camera up and not any time to keep the camera still: Even so, I get keepers more often than not!

Why doesn't Sony make this a non-isssue by offering the user to choose between Lossless or lossy compression?

Of course, that means RAW converters must support both, but that shouldn't be hard.

Geir Ove: No GPS, no buy. Why do we have LightRoom etc with Map capabilities when very few "high end" cameras have GPS? Yes, I know, I can mess with synching with my Phone, but its cumbersome and often fails for some reason or another...

@mdcromer "GPS = battery hog"

Really? How come my phone lasts for days with GPS turned on and taking Pictures? And why not have an option to turn it off for users who want....

Brian Mosley: Richard,

is there likely to be any difference in image quality when using the electronic shutter vs the mechanical shutter?

Many thanks

I asked a similar question a year ago regarding the Panasonic FZ1000: I also would really like to know the difference, if any, in noise levels etc when using Electronic vs Mechanical Shutter in any camera (Sony or Panasonic). DPRevew / Richard?

HubertChen: After reading through the comments I am very amazed. So here we have two parties:

The innovative explorers:
- Hiking 15 days up to 3500 m and work at - 10 °C
- plan, coordinate and execute 70,000 Images
- Create a 365 Giga Pixel Panorama
- Create as a vision of what is possible in Ultra High resolution
- Write a web app and establish a server that can serve such monster picture (sure can not be off the shelf image sharing app)

The Critics
- overlook the accomplishment
- criticize anything

I am not shocked by finding negative comments, but I am shocked that negative comments are the majority.

I am sad for the readers of this web site. It is not the first time here I see innovation met with cynicism. It is likely this will motivate innovators to publish their new stuff elsewhere, making dpreview a less interesting place.

The place for innovation and "food for the Brain" vanished when Phil Askey sold the site!

Geir Ove: Excuse me, is this something to make a Front Page topic?
Other than generating more reads....
I posted a message to DPR and suggested an interesting topic, no answer so far...

I see the point from a commercial standpoint.

However, if the only goal is to generate reads, there are lots of stuff that will generate reads, but that does NOT add any quality to the site.

Geir Ove: Hello DPReview Staff,

When can we expect to see the X-E2 Review? I have to resort to other sites to find Reviews nowadays; this is not like it was in the Phil Askey days...

@Hugo808

Thanks, I already knew these facts. However, the same things can be said for every Canon and Nikon incremental model as well: Does this mean DPR should only review the first model, and then state that the newer models are "almost the same" QED ?

Pavel Sokolov: Where is GPS/GLONASS??? Wtf guys? I don't want to search for an actual locations where I took the photos.

I could not agree more ! It cannot be battery life: On my Smartphone, I can take hundreds of GPS tagged photos without running out of battery! I just bought a Fuji X-E1 to replace my clunky Canon 50D. I have to use an external GPS to to GPS tag my photos.

BUT, this is indeed the last camera I buy with NO GPS: I just love how I can see the location of all GPS tagged pictures (in LightRoom etc)

GeorgeZ: It MAY cost more with the OVF than the EM5?
It costs more even without it!
The EM5 now is € 1099 here with the 12-50mm, the E-P5 will cost as much but with the 14-42mm.
And if Olympus doesn't change its policy, that price will be the fixed price for the first couple of months, maybe by then the EM5 will even be further reduced.
The P5 is certainly a nice camera but Olympus is asking too much.
The PM2 can be found for almost a third of the P5, the E-PL5 for less than half- both with the same sensor/engine.
I just don't get it Olympus.

The missing EVF is such a let down. I have the XZ-1 with the extra EVF, but it makes the camera clumsy to handle....

Come on, is a built iin EVF that complicated? My old Minolta A1 had one back in 2004-ish...

The way Stephen Elop has handled the excellent product Damian created, the Nokia 808 Pureview, I do understand that he leaves Nokia:

Damian helped create an excellent technology that Elop has tried to hide: Where are the ads for the Pureview? At least not in Norway.

Oh, yes, that's right, the Lumia 920 (was it) uses the "Pureview" technology, or at least a lobotomized version of it with an 8 Mpix sensor:

And here I thought that the PureView tech was all about downsampling a High Res sensor (41 Mpix on the 808) and doing clever image processing in the process...

Good luck Damian, I certainly hope that Landrover / Jaguar knows to appreciate your talens!

Geir Ove: Hello Sony,

Your technology is exciting! I will buy Sony equipment and replace my outdated Canons as soon as you include a GPS in your NEX Series ! PLEASE!

Geotagged images saves me a LOT of time: No more fuzz with "where on the earth is this"? And, LightRoom now supports Geotagging !

So sony PLEASE: EVF and GPS, and I'm sold !

Hello,

Yes, that's true, but all External equipment adds to the bulk that I am trying to get away from.....

So, built in EVF & GPS is what I am shopping for, on a Sony !

The A77 has both (if my memory serves me right), but I would want a NEX with both...
