Mister Roboto: How about a selfie stick that takes whole body shot? =D
Does a gopro mounted on a 1.8 metre monopod count?
YorkM: In Tokyo Disneyland/Sea have banned to use Selfie Sticks.Please refer the "5 Reasons Why Selfie Sticks Should be Banned at Disney Theme Parks" URL : http://www.themeparktourist.com/features/20150116/29867/5-reasons-why-disney-should-ban-selfie-stick
Also, many sightseeing areas are thinking same restriction in Japan.Last year, I have been in Kyoto for autumn color season and there were very crowded and many time about 10% of guest stopped and take photo by using a selfie sticks. Then, other people could not pass him/her while they took the shot because of passways were very narrow.
Then, the selfie sticks became selfish bar. Therefore, idea of this product is nice but place to use may be limited.
I used my light weight Lumix G6 which has a fully-articulated rear display that time.
I actually think it's the opposite people that are rude. Think of it this way. You get someone to take a photo of you and then someone walks infront of the shot. Who is the Rude one. Now replace that distance with a stick, why does it all of a sudden become the photographer that is rude?
electrophoto: what a load of nonsense.Selfie...
what has it come to for so many?"selfie ergo sum"?
I never understood the need to pose in front of stuff to basically have a photo that is crappy but shows me at place X...I less then not understand the modern selfie at arms length.Crappy photo and an absolute waste of everyone's time. But the social sharing crowd seems to love it.Amongst with heavily discoloured "vintage" style photos of every bit of food the selfie is going to eat and cat pictures.
I think you nailed it with 'I never understood' and 'I less than not understand'.
Different people have different taste and that's a good thing, Some like HDR, some like fisheye. I really wished my grand parents took more photos infront of 'X' place to see what they looked like what were they have been before they past away.
Just because it's not your taste it's not nonsense. You have to remember it's not 'selfies' or nothing. When I go on holidays I still bring a tripod to take nice photos, but I also take selfies or me and my wife in front of place 'X' and I'm sure most people here would also be in the same category as me.
This is awesome news.
I really like the timelapse straight into video, but I hope in future firmware you can take photos straight into superview or defished, or superview and defished.
As I often use a gopro on holidays, the more settings I can do in camera, the less I'd need a computer for the App.
I really like my Theta, but unfortunatly the image quality is not good enough. Might skip this M15, but hopefully the one after will be better. I don't even mind if it's a little bigger or a little more expensive if the IQ was there.
Also for the next version, please make an extender battery monopod with a shutter button :)
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.
