In reply to:

maxnimo: Wow, this looks like the perfect camera! I assume it's full frame with a super sharp lens and a super clean noise-free image at ISO 3200! I'm so totally excited.
I'm getting one today before it's all sold out.

and shoot museum worthy images out of it, that you are shooting with rest of your FF cameras as well.

PS: It is too easy to be a smart A.

In reply to:

forpetessake: After the detailed article about the lens equivalence one could expect DPR would stop writing "24-1248mm equivalent F2.8-5.6 zoom lens", but here we go again. I guess the advertising dollars are more important than truth.

Now all we need is to make sure that we compare this with m43 on f15 equivalent dof and conclude that this has better sensor (like m43 crowd love to do when compare against FF).

Doug Janis: Small sensor = dead sales.

like for example smartphone cameras are 0.0001% of cameras used over the world and Medium format rules the world with 90% of cameras used in world today.

Biological_Viewfinder: HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAHA!!!!!!11111

"Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 compared to Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10"

That's the funniest headline I've ever seen here!

-

I've owned several Panasonic cameras, and I own the Rx10.
The only Panasonic product I have ever liked was a cordless telephone.
Saying a Panasonic anything could even remotely compare to a Sony anything is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read here, and I've read a lot of nonsense.

The only reason I would even take this seriously is if I owned a Panasonic and didn't know any better.

@cmvsm (4 hours ago)

"Guess you didn't see the image comparisons. The Panasonic's 400 looked like the RX10's...oh wait, the RX10's lens falls a bit short."

And also did you compare images at 24mm, o wait panasonic is not wide enough.

Lol.

@grantbush "Why did you continue buying Panasonic cameras if you didn't like any of them???"

May be because people here say that your opinion does not count as you never owned that.
By that token his opinion should count a lot, isn't it.

In reply to:

dwm2020: I fail to see how the RX10 is considered a 'compact' camera, beside it having a small sensor.

Why is the sony different from other Bridge cameras and not considered one?

@ b craw
" And, the tone unfortunately demonstrates a rather ugly territorial tendency present among too many photographers."

Sorry for the tone. That was probably outcome of reading a threads on dpr where it is really difficult to know when someone is asking a genuine question or just trying to be smart A.

I take it that those who visit DPR understand why there is so much talk over a 1" camera with this lens and thus also understand as why this camera would be called a compact.

@Kawika Nui,

"Still no answer from smart-ace troll to very simple question."

I haven't seen the replies this is why. I will try to reply in the language you understand (that is speaking in jerkish)

Those of you who are illiterates in photography (this includes you Kawika Nu too), try 24-200mm constant F2.8 lens on FF and compare yourself as to why is RX10 a compact camera.

If any one of you do not understand that this camera has 24-200 mm F2.8 lens for 1" sensor then you guys are clear ignorant dumbs and do not really worth any reply.

In reply to:

forpetessake: I guess hype works! Otherwise how can you explain all this ballyhoo going on? The camera's only achievement is that it fits in a pocket, the lens is pretty unremarkable, and so are the images.

@Bocky what you call pocket is not something straight people have in mind when they talk of pocket. Shoving also not the word that comes in a normal person's mind. You may like to shove rx100 into your "pocket" but .....

Valentinian: What is the competition ?
Lumix LX-8 - same sensor size; 24-90mm (equivalent); F 2-2.8
to be announced July 16

It will be very interesting reading DPR's comparison of the two cameras.

they are same sensor size and not the same sensor. There is a big difference.

at least he will be using it on real sensor and not on a spec of it.

thanks for correcting, i was mistaken. I was always under impression that there were little difference between the bombs. Thanks.

"They wanted a war they got it, and than they made it worse when they wouldn't surrender after the first bomb. "

This shows how little you know of things.
The difference between two bombs was roughly 6 hours. This is how long they waited for them surrender if they did.

In reply to:

DStudio: So far no comments about the gravity of the situation - just cynicism, attempts to redefine terms, etc.

I visited Hiroshima and the museum and monuments over five years ago. It was good to see it, but also a difficult experience. I imagine these photos would have a similar affect.

"It's hard to describe, but it was sobering. It was the first time I can remember wanting to leave a museum before I had to"

Same here. This was one place I came out incredibly sad. Can't describe those feelings.

In reply to:

eyeswideshut: I really don't know what to admire more. Someone who - one hundred years ago - achieved roughly similar performance with four lenses in three groups at F/2.8 or a corporation which - a century later - achieves marginally better performance corner to corner with the aid of cad/cam and thirteen lenses in four groups at a whopping 800g and a thousand dollars.

@ Henderson May , if he has to be correct, that would mean that in last 100 years there was no-one whom it occurred that that design is the best we could do so far. All this development so far basically just did not happen.

Dabbler: When the MKI came out I gave up 12mm at the long end in my 112mm X20. Now I'm expected to give up another 30mm? Yes the 24mm at the wide end is nice but I would miss many shots at the long end using a MKIII. I'm interested to see what Nikon comes up with in the P8000.

You are not forced to buy this camera. You can chose anything from plethora of cameras available. You are writing as if you are forced into buying it.

Menneisyys: Guys,

any source for European pre-order? Amazon.de, unlike amazon.com, doesn't list it - and, needless to say, the latter doesn't ship to Europe. No mention on it on Expansys either.

I want to get this before the holiday starts (01/Jul).

they are always late. It was great in japan for me where i could walk in a shop and buy it. Here in germany amazon.de is almost always sleeping unaware .
