    I do believe that in the density of water, IS is superfluous, but it is nice to have out of the water.

    ?maybe they detected that the physics of the rotational frequency causes...

    Poor ignorant fool. there ARE some larger sensor models in that roundup... you might check the specs before...

    Poor ignorant fool. the RX100 has a 1" sensor, Fuji has a 2/3" sensor...
    the specs are right there for you...

  • sdaniella, sometimes things are done the way they are, simply because of a legacy design they are evolving out of, because of common systems and the economics of using those, practicality, ease of...

  • If you're a pro, you would probably consider that indeed, 90mm equivalent is the shortest you want to do portrait with.  But none of the equipment we are discussing here will be in a pro's hands ...
  • Sorry, I didn't mean to ignore you - I just hadn't visited here in a while is all. There aren't any fancy stops, or any nice special feel to the focus ring... personally, I find it a bit confusing, ...
  • thanks Richard!

  • @DPR: sensor size is incorrect.
    if the outer perimeter is being thrown away, it is obviously not the actual sensor size being used.
    please correct the specs, so we can better compare with 1"...

  • In a world where everything is done via digital editing effects, there are many features I see advertised that can simply be accomplished with a small aperture, and defocusing effect in Lightroom...

  • I think you have hit the nail on the head... the one application where you can't substitute with software editing effects.

  • the camera selection in the other category, "high end compacts" with a "large sensor (larger than smartphone)" is wrong too.
    it's a bit ridiculous, really.

  • @DPR, with a title like that "High End Compact Roundup"...

    one would expect an Actual Roundup of High-End compacts.

    But no... 3 out of 6 have a tiny sensor, 1 has a very small sensor, of which...

  • with the new compacts, is the GR still relevant?
