Tandua: Sony continues its improvments plan.It will be the leader soon.
I think it's a little naive to say it has 0 to do with Digital Imaging. If it's useful and can sell and make a profit, divisions will cross.
It's almost as good as Canon and Nikon saying. There is no way a Electronic company like Sony and Panasonic could put digital sensors in SLRs.
DaGurney: OH NOES my comment contained SWEAR WORDS.
Píss off, DPReview nannies. I thought this was a site a for grownups.
Real grownups don't need swear words to express themselves.
And I thought this site was for everyone and not just grownups. i'm sure there are plenty of minors reading this site.
Aroart: Fact canon and Nikon are a bit behind in mirrorless .. Fact canon and Nikon will eat any mirrorless up in sports photograhy. Fact canon and Nikon will catch up when there camera sales decline. Fact mirrorless is good enuff now to make em sweat a bit.. Fact mirrorless blows away dslrs in video....fact quality always declines to quik easy fast and cheap..
Fact cnon and Nikon will eat any mirrorless up in sports photography.
I don't know about eat, as it takes a flagship model to beat some of these so called mirrorless.
Someone from another site said it best:
If you are disappointed make sure you give their videos a thumbs down in youtube so their management can truly see how unimpressed ratio is:
I'd love to know if
- The Hero 4 Silver has excatly the same still photo quality as the black without what ever this 'x2 performance' is.
- Is the new Remote included in either and is it the same size as the old one? or even if the old one can be used on the new one.
- Is the new Remote wifi signal strong enough to trigger gopro underwater.
- Can they make a wifi flash? not very useful for most people since they would most likely use video lights :)
I wonder can the flash be used with any other system. Would love something tiny like that just for a bit of fill-flash on the A7s.
Didn't think the QX1 would be my cup of tea until I thought of all the cool things that could happen to this series.
-I could mount a Samyang 8mm to it, set focus to 2 meters, put it in my palm and pretend to be Iron man and catching victim's expression as I blast them.
-If they made an EVF loupe, I could mount a sel55-210 and pretend to be a pirate with a telescope
-I could put a 1/4 inch mount in my car bumper opening, put a uv filter for the stone chips and get some pretty cool pictures while driving.
-Or for street photography, I could mount it on a tripod with a ultra wide angel. use a 10 inch tablet to really nail focus. The crop the picture you want.
If it drops down in price by a decent amount I'm really tempted to get one :)
Wubslin: I owned a Panasonic camera once and it made me give up photography.
Wubslin : I owned an Ikea steak knife once and it made me give up meat.
Valiant Thor : So what are you doing here at a butcher? You need to get back to your Brussel Sprouts.
Wubslin : Thanks for your insulting and inappropriate comment. It really added to the discussion.
Artpt : Sorry to hear...I hope you get back to eating meat one day...it really is healthy for you and a good source of iron for some....
Wubslin : @Artpt: Thanks, it's just not really my thing at the moment though.
Artpt : Listen...consider eating sausages....as a meat eater, sometimes a steak is too much...the worst ham and cheese sandwich is still better than pea soup.
Jorginho :Only you can make yourself give up. Saying something else did is simply not taking the responsibility for your very own choices.
Wubslin : @caver3d: You don't get it, do you? Every time I come to the butchers it simply makes me despise carnivores even more. No wonder I quit, I'm glad I'm no longer one of you.
Mike FL: Have not seen that any body tested RX10's weather sealed performance yet.
Hopefully, DPR will run the test.
Just mention it to Kai from digitalrev, I'm sure he would be more than happy to dunk one in water or put it in the freezer.
Nice range/price for a holiday lens. Just wish they can make something like this for e-mount. Eg without the need for an adaptor.
Random Asian Guy: A lot of my photos are from low light situations, So this camera interests me quite a bit.
But I'm surprised it can only manage 5 fps for stills with only 12 megapixels.
Unfortunately Stablization doesn't work for things like indoor sports in a dark school gym. At high level volleyball a close up would take 1/2000 to really freeze the ball or arm swing. And a badminton shuttle cock can reach 300-400kmph during a smash.
Granted in a professional court. The lightning is much better. much more difficult in a highschool or uni gym.
Also fast lens are nice, but with close ups. you can get face in focus but racquet/ball/arm etc out of focus.
I'm no expert, but these are my experiences.

I'm curious does it have the lens correction with the Gopro Hero 3+'s Superview.
plasnu: I feel that Flickr is dying, very unfortunately. Their search engine and the way of show pictures is so unsophisticated...
I used to really enjoy going through Flickr, but it's so annoying these days.examples: Checking out Gopro pictures for ideas :1-find photos not relating to gopro that belongs to 1300 other groups.2-people posts 120 of almost the same photo for a timelapse sequence.
I think with this type of camera you really need to actually go out and use it. Much like a Gopro, the specs are nothing special, but people have managed to get amazing results.
Here is one I found that I liked.
If the guy used some post proccessing before uploading it. it would even be better. I'm not aware of any other camera on the market that can capture a moment like this.
I bought this camera knowing the picture quality is not great, but wanted to support the first generation of this product.
Turned out to be a really fun camera. when you get over the idea that this camera is not for pixel peeping but capturing the moment it makes sense.
There are so many things that can be improved thought such as:Phone App - adding a intervalometer would be awesomePhone App - controlling ISO and shutter speed, that could mean better night shots.Computer App - save view as jpg without the 'white control' iconsCamera - syncing both cameras better so they always have the same exposure.
Really looking forward to a better version that has at least Gopro quality pictures even with increased size and price.
Interesting, but I don't know if it would do better than a Ricoh Theta. Sure it has that throwable ability, but the idea of carrying a ball around could be quite annoying.
joe6pack: "All four shots were 15 second exposures, at f/1.4, ISO 3200. This long exposure, high ISO setting is what does the magic when it comes to night photography, as can be seen by the amazing number of stars visible in the image."
I am not a Pro. Maybe someone can explain to me why the above combination is better than, say, 60s exposure, at ISO 800? Or 4 minutes at ISO 200?
I think most people trying to take a good photo of the milky way uses the 500 rules (some people use 600). which is 500 / your focal length is the longest exposure you can have to avoid startrails. So in this case. 500/24mm would be 20 seconds. I also think that the less star trails the easier it is for stitching
Has something different happened to dpreview recently? I already follow sonyalpharumors and LensRentals and 2 out of the 3 latest posts I've already read about.
Is dpreview really running out of their own articles?
I think this makes a much better idea for self portrait and everything around them.
