jkokich: I applaud anyone who uses their imagination and ingenuity to do things Hollywood wastes millions on, but come on, this is merely a rotating camera rig. A very well-made one, for virtually no money, but not bullet-time.
Bullet time is simultaneous or almost simultaneous exposures from a series of cameras, not just one. This is just rotated slow-mo.
Are these forums a good idea? So much whingeing from people who probably don't take photographs regularly. It's getting worse.
Nikonworks: Most retailers hold a straight forward 'Inventory Sale', of which this article clearly seems to be, except the straight forward part.
DPReview please take notice:When I was a kid 'slot cars' were the newest and 'biggest' thing.Stores opened up just with slot car race tracks. It was fantastic but very short lived because the market place became overloaded with slot cars and accessories to the point the kids could not keep up with the market.The whole market folded like a deck of cards.
Of late, you, the editors are doing the same thing here at DPReview.You have too many Final Reviews to post before listing 'Old cameras under $1000'. You are reaching in all directions, phones, tech, cameras, etc.You are making this site unwieldly and soon ambiguous.
You better get together and focus on your mission.
At the same time you can discuss formally thanking me for my 'Real World Samples' suggestion.
Nikonworks I suggest you set up your own site if you don't like this one. But I'm not holding my breath.
It's great. The other models in the X- range have viewfinders if you need one that badly. Stop whining.
Mrrowe8: Every camera in this price range must answer this honest question is it better then the Sony RX100 for the same price ??? The answer on this one is a huge NO .. Another one bites the dust
Are you confusing the RX100 with the RX1? Either way, you're still making a category error.
Finally. The camera for me. Now I don't have to wait for the Fuji XE-2 ;)
Head-to-heads are really useful. Thank you.
ARTASHES: Cons: "OM-D image quality in smaller, lighter, cheaper body" I think this is the biggest of pros of this camera ;)
HI Barney, thank you for your patient handling of all us high-maintenance trolls down here in Commentistan :)
SeeRoy: Wotta lotta twaddle here - the usual endless piffle about FL/Aperture equivalence. I don't use a Nikon 1 system (I own FX and M4/3) however I did buy, and have used, a V1 system for a woman friend as an alternative to her Canon DSLR. And I wouldn't be likely to buy this overpriced lens even if I was a CX system user.I agree that the existing cameras fall well short of what they might easily have been; many people might have been prepared to overlook the limitations imposed by the choice of sensor size had the ergonomics been better. However I feel it's likely that, given the rapid development in sensor technology, before too long we'll see a Nikon CX range that meets the requirements of many of its current critics.There's a lot wrong with my OMD too but it doesn't stop me finding it a much more enjoyable experience than an FX body with a 2.8 zoom attached.Edited for typo.
Guess I misunderstood this, perhaps? http://www.dpreview.com/news/2013/03/04/Canon-develops-high-sensitivity-full-frame-CMOS-sensor-for-videos
Scott Birch: Larger pixels would be much better for light-gathering than wider apertures. Imagine how high an ISO you could get away with on a 5Mp 1" sensor. Or a 5Mp FF sensor, for that matter.

Simon97: On my CX format wish list is a 13mm f/2 (35mm equiv.) and a 150mm f/4 (405mm equiv.) to give some tele reach without adapters.
No doubt this new lens will perform well. It is apparently easier to make smaller lenses sharp as the other CX lenses have been marvelous. Even the 10-100mm zoom is excellent.
All these people in search of the widest aperture ... are you all wedding portrait or chocolate-box virtuosos or what?
There's a sweet spot, surely, yabokkie? Narrow apertures affect quality but so do open apertures where the angle of incidence of the light on the sensor has such a big range. This affects sharpness too, right?
Bokeh! Isolate the subject! Narrow apertures are rubbish! Make sure your cameras and lenses have all the things!
10Mp would be great with bigger pixels that gather more light for a little bit more high-ISO goodness. Why don't they do that?
Oh nice. It's either this or the surely-being-developed Fujifilm XE-2 for me ;)
Shunda77: All hail blood stained menstrual teenage train riding knickers!! those that refuse to see the beauty in dysfunction shall be burned at the stake!!Their burned corpses shall make magnificent photographic subject matter!!
Oh do sit down. I see 5 posts from you about this girl's knickers. Try to put them out of your mind. Isn't there some cat or colourful dessert somewhere near you that you can capture for reverent but safely inoffensive posterity with a fine DSLR?
keith james taylor: wonderful pics but a difrent story in the Guardan for example all the photographs where taken with a Nikcon F3 " so never let the facts spoile a good story". Thanks for the introduction to this fasinating body of woork
".. Don't really think it matters?!?!?!?!?!?!?!"
Fire this man! Ye gods and little pixels! ;)
Scott Birch: Only possible with the latest APS-C or M4/3 one of those lousy compacts with those tiny sensors couldn't have taken these pics I'll bet they look suitably wonderful at 100% crop hey the bokeh could have been better blah blah blah ouch that hurt ..
Brave duckling, defending The Zeitgeist! Now you are a swan, a swan!
