fenceSitter: "50 Mpixel CMOS sensor with almost twice the physical size of the largest 35 mm DSLR sensor."
On which planet are 1.67 "almost 2"?
Hey it's closer to 1 than 2 right? :D
SDPharm: Here's my question: take an identical scene with this new Hassy and a Nikon D800, process them to the best one can, then print each to a reasonable size, say, 5 ft wide. Then hang them in a gallery with controlled lighting. Will I be able to tell which one is which when viewing them from a comfortable viewing distance of 3-5 ft?
You could also throw a Nokia 1020 in there just for fun. I would like to see that blind test.
Stanchung: Make it AF!
Anastigmat: I wonder if Canon and/or Nikon will shake up the market by making its own medium format CMOS sensors, cameras and lenses.
Phase One and Hasselblad will get exclusive access to this sensor for one year. Meanwhile later this year Canon will announce their MF system, that has being rumoured for a while.
Chimayred: hey can anyone explain how the GR and the RX100 both earned 79% in the enthusiast large sensor compact camera class but the GR is a gold award and teh sony is a silver?
The gold and silver award are not related to the score of the camera.
topstuff: Interesting in that it tells us that IQ is not the top priority for people.
It also reveals the truth that people generally look at photography through an iPad or tablet and don't print large anymore.
It also reveals that a large percentage of shooters only really take pictures in undemanding situations, with good light and conditions.
Why else would a MFT camera win? ;)
The OP said what he said tongue in cheek...
CameraLabTester: The cover photo portrays all the cameras as a random pile of... junk.
Which is what they are in a few years.
Is that a GM1 or you are happy to see me?
Don't you mean Focus Jumping? The error is all over the review...
Where's the Afghan girl? Can't get enough of it!
nstam: making cameras: youd think they(camera companies) understand photoshop... of course theyre playing games with everyone. why make it easy to discern what it is; todays market works off selling pushing ideas; isnt that marketing?DPReview knows whats hiding, and we're giving it hits. It would be more fun if they didn't follow the 'rumours' and let us play the 'whats next' game. This is one of the leading websites around the world, and they still play games... what happened to old DPR(edited, grammar)
Look below, DPR has said they don't have anything else besides this image, which means that it really must be just a local version of a known camera, not a completely new model.
If it was Olympus, it would be cool.If it was Samsung, it would be ordinary.If it was Sony, it would be bold.If it was Pentax, it would be old news.If it was Hasselblad, it would be tasteless.
But since it's a white Canon, then it's junk.
Meh not enough bokeh.
Frank_BR: This camera is a proof that M43 is the sweet spot of sensor size. What other format allows better combination of high quality of image with small size of camera?
I bet Henri Cartier-Bresson would love the GM1.
No love for Samsung NX!
photo nuts: This is pathetic. DPReview used to chastise websites for leaking news & rumors etc. And now, what do we see? DPReview itself is posting rumors.
They must be desperately trying to generate more web traffic. Let me give DPReview a piece of advice: post MORE timely reviews of cameras and lenses if you want to generate more traffic.
Very sad to see DPReview in its current state.
Dpreview only posts rumors they know are correct. How do they know? Because they have a hands on preview ready to publish.
Hachu21: Just "cosmetic improvements"? are you sure?- new sensor + new image processor- faster autofocus and reduced shooting time lag ( http://cpn.canon-europe.com/content/product/cameras/powershot_g16.do )- one of the fastest continuous shooting (9.5fps limited to...one hour)- focus peaking for manual focus on stills and videos- handheld HDR and nightscene- exposure time up to 250s- background defocus mode (2 pictures stacked, not the average "paintbrush style filter")- 60p fullHD moviesWell... if i agree there's no "killer feature", you can't say it's nothing! (and "minor update" is a bit abusive too!)
Funny how some people use 85mm and more for landscapes.
AbrasiveReducer: This is great news for everybody. If Magic Lantern turns out to be popular and trouble-free, Canon can re-evaluate. If it causes problems, it voids the warranty so it's 100% the user's risk. If the user wants Magic Lantern but not the risk, they can rent from LensRentals. Something for everybody.
So it must be good!
zodiacfml: Canon=huge dinosaurThese stuff are uncool.There is little value in adding social media capability even to the avid social media user because why bother if it is still best done on a smartphone especially those with data plans?
Step it up.
Canon S120 starts at 24mm.
Charletti: If Garmin satnavs are anything to go by, downloading updates and firmware is like stepping back into primeval times. Over 4 hours on a fast computer via USB instead of a direct download onto a hard drive then upload onto Garmin hardware. And this with a top model. I'd done my research beforehand but this issue was not addressed. Double check before purchasing.
I don't think the update for my Garmin GPS ever lasted more than 30m. But I live in a small country and it's a relatively cheap model.
