If you don't like Swift attitude, ignore her and don't shoot. Aren't there other artist to take pics of and make money from that?

Anaxagoras: Interesting stuff. But I would disagree with "Was this image taken with a DSLR or a mirrorless camera? If you can't tell from looking at the final image, does it matter?". For us hobbyists, yes it does. ENJOYING taking the image matters a lot.

Having owned both Nikon D7000 (optical viewfinder) and Sony NEX7 (small and light), my preferred solution to get the best of both worlds is a small dSLR - Nikon D5300.

When I need something truly pocketable my smartphone has to suffice.

4K is still in its infancy and you are talking about 8K. You sound like an enthusiastic amateur.

Blurry and boring. But I'm sure it means something for the industry.

I'm sure an awesome camera, but the ugliness of it!

Mariano Pacifico: I'm not buying Sony RX100 IV yet. It is best to wait out what Canon and Lumix have up their sleeves. Definitely, Canon buy sensors from Sony. Of course, Sony would sell them last-generation sensors. Lumix does not buy sensors from Sony.

Let's see what these two can offer comes September in Photokina. It's going to be fun!

What are you talking about. Canon uses its own sensors.

You can easily (well maybe not so easily) create your own preset for dehazing.

Mark Alan Thomas: At last, subscribers and nervous persons can remove every trace of reality from their photos. If that’s not worth the price of extortion, I don’t know what is.

Yes, I'm a filter junkie. I"ve already removed all reality traces from my pictures. All what's left is to dehaze them to complete the picture.

The site says the dehazing id free, but then proceeds to collect you CC number. Fail!

On Leah_1 in the -Canon vs Nikon : Wedding Photography- (in Full Colours) - challenge (11 comments in total)

They used to shoot this way in the 70s. The bride is completely flat -footed, looks fat in the bottom. This is a very unflattering pose. The lighting looks very unnatural. You can see two shadows.
There's time and place for the flash behind a person. This is not one of those instances.
I can't believe this took the 1st place. I can only imagine the second and the third.

RuneMC: Stacked sensor sounds very interesting if it means something like the Sigma sensor/image quality.

4K video also interesting, but 8K would have been even more interesting to extract panorama images from the video with Microsoft ICE 2.0 for example.

And the EVF - please drop it to drop the price significantly.

Will probably keep my RX100 Mk1 and wait for RX200 (whenever that may be) - although if the stacked sensor is exceptional, then I might be tempted...

The 4K implementation is still very raw, and you want 8K?

On Sony RX100 IV compact shoots 4k, uses a stacked sensor article (303 comments in total)

Nice, but the same old Sony color profile with the bluish cast to it. I'll pass.

Can I edit this in Photoshop? :)

Just $100 less than the 70D? Is this a joke?. This is basically a toy camera.

skysi: Is this made in place of Lumix GX8, or is GX8 is still in making?

I've heard rumors now about a September release or at least an announcement.

Too late to set a drop video trend. People want a combination camera
