On Sony Alpha 7S added to test scene comparison tool article (272 comments in total)

Sony had quite noisy cameras until now.
A7s is definitely better than Nikon Df, Nikon D4s, Canon 6d and any other of low light kings.
Bravo Sony!!!

Garp2000: Good luck with that. If this is as beta and banana software as most Apps camera makers release this is going to fail big.

Nikon Image Space is using Adobe Flash, which is extremely unstable and buggy.

qizhigang: Nikon SHOULD HAVE PREVENTED it from happening at the very beginning. They lied to the public and now they pay the price. Not sure if the price is costly to this big company or not but it definitely has some impact to them. $17.6m is certain not a big deal to them but YEAH, they are thinking about the reputation right now.

It is a lot even for nikon. Especially on a shrinking market.

In reply to:

ZAnton: A version III hassignificantly more noise than v.II (at ISO 3200), and also more than Canon GX1 mk2

@Roland Karlson
check RAW files.
One good explanation could be, that old Sony RX100 II and new Canon GX1 mk2 are doing pre-cooked raw files, while Sony mk3 does not. But that is a pure speculation and I really doubt it.

ZAnton: So what is the sense of the mechanical shutter if it is not used?

And what is the sense of that? =)

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (493 comments in total)

That is what I was expecting, when Nikon had announced Nikon 1 cameras. But instead of doing good, bright zoom, they concentrated on expensive and useless slow tele- and standard lenses.

On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (597 comments in total)
In reply to:

burnymeister: I think people are missing the point on this camera. $1200 isn't that bad when you consider what you're getting. For under $3k you can get a system that covers the focal range of 18-800mm with pretty good features and small enough to fit in a backpack.

How is this not a great thing? 800mm in any other system will either result in a horrible unbalanced mess or $11k just for the lens and will be so heavy you won't hike it anywhere. This is the first time I'm interested in the 1 series. I think Nikon's finally coming through.

There are many bridge cameras with >1000mm tele end and brighter lens and 3 times cheaper. I am quite sure that comparing f-stop of the lens and sensor size, there will be little to no difference between V3 and a bridge cam.
So the only advantage of V3 is the AF speed. Well, try to justify the 800 Euro overprice with faster AF to my mom.

On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (597 comments in total)
In reply to:

ZAnton: "The Nikon 1 V1 and V2 are two cameras that are not frequently discussed among camera enthusiasts."
The only way they can change that is to make bright lenses for it. Bright zooms (f/2) AND very bright fixes (f/1.4).
Otherwise Canon G1X mk2 is way better than Nikon 1 line.
There are also Sony RX, Canon G15/16, and Nikon P7700/7800, although the last one is a tiny bit slower on AF than G16.
So basically Nikon 1 loose to the whole bunch of the "normal" enthusiast P&Ss.
UPD. Oh, that dark camera doesn't even have a hot shoe, so that i could mount my SB700?
I assume the DPreview authors must rethink the market placement of V3. I don't see _any_ reason for an enthusiast to buy this camera.

@Richard
First, I didn't meant constant aperture zoom. But the system must be either mighty or cheap. No one is gonna pay 850 euro for a dark lens and a small sensor.
To say nothing about wideangle. 24mm wide-end is a standard today.
This Nikon 1 is like a Fiat Panda with a 500hp engine - it could go fast, but the rest of the car will fall apart.
Why would you need 20-60fps if your exposure is 1/15sec. Who needs 20fps anyway? 2 geeks in Japan?

On Am I missing something here? article (637 comments in total)
In reply to:

ManuelVilardeMacedo: Actually the explanation for the 1 system is very simple: Nikon doesn't want their mirrorless cameras eating in on their own DSLR cameras sales. That's why so many deem the 1's 'half-hearted.' Nikon is not commited to mirrorless, but wants to keep a foot on that market.

They want it, but they don't want it. So they are shooting their leg.
That is the most stupid strategy ever (at least in a shrinking market). They sink their money, and they will loose the market anyway.

ZAnton: Useless external VF for a heap of bucks (attempt to get some $$ from an old grandpa), useless grip (the whole idea of 1" is the size&weight, right?), insane starting price...
The camera is clearly oriented on earning of money. But the irony is, that when the company do that, they will loose money.
Sony did a RX10 with same sensor size and lens 24-200mm f/2.8.
Canon did G1X with a bigger sensor 24-120 f/2.0-3.9.
Only Nikon is still doing f/4.5-6.7 for a tiny sensor.
I have an Oly with 14-42 f/3.5-5.6, and indoors it is useless. At the long end I get exposures like 1/4 second even at ISO1600.
So Nikon - even smaller sensor and similar dark lens. Well, no wonder they have troubles with sales.
The Nikon 1 line does not have a selling point.
Canon G16 - brightest lens in its range (28-...), smallest, fastest AF.
Oly XZ - brightest 24mm
Canon G1X - biggest sensor on a bright zoomed compact
Sony RX-line -- all bright-lensed and good sensor.

Nikon 1 - nothing. It is neither the widest, nor the longest, nor the brightest, nor the biggest zoom, or sensor, or DR.
Well maybe fastest AF. You'll focus in a 0.001sec and then open the shutter for 2 seconds. Useless. It doesn't even have a hotshoe (external Flash is a MUST with such camera indoors).

Sorry Nikon, I just don't see any reason to buy this camera or recommend it to someone.
The whole point of 1" sensor is that it is cheap, and lenses are cheap and small, and the camera is cheap and small. If they aren't - kill the line.
