On Fujifilm X30 (beta) real-world samples article (25 comments in total)
In reply to:

tipple: just to echo cgarrard, every camera has setting adjustments for a reason. The fact that DPReview uses standard out of the camera settings for preview pics is perfectly logical. For any camera, if you do not like what you see, then go to settings for "your" preferences. There is no "perfect" camera , it's all about tradeoffs, etc. Hard to beat Fuji colors. Fuji stands behind its base with updates for even "old' cameras. No i do not have and Fuji cameras, just impressed with Fuji's offerings.

Usually Fuji cameras need updates.

steelhead3: It looks like a good P&S...most cell phones can duplicate these pictures now.

Or yo can use QX1 and get much better zooms on a phone down to 1.8 with primes

On Sony adds XAVC S support to Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 article (82 comments in total)
In reply to:

coolowski: I'm surprised Sony did this, and it's welcome. But it's still lacking the 4K it would be perfectly capable of, and which the FZ1000 has. Maybe this means we'll see a 4K RX10II at Photokina...

I wouldn't be surprised that most all camera manufacturers are using Fujitsu cpu.

Will the Mexican low rider color scheme of Pentax and Loxia lens line clash(luckily not made for each other).

On Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article (283 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: DPR's final words are off the base and common sense, because first the camera is established as a mid-level camera -- as Ricoh Imaging stated -- but then DPR compared it to Nikon's and Canon's entry low-level cameras and their price.

Well, such a paradoxical conclusion. Reminds of the same problem they had with the Q7. Can we expect better from the DPR than its usual guesswork? Is Pentax brain really guilty for challenging common misconceptions about cameras and how they should look?

Put a Canon logo on K-S1, and odes of praise would follow, "Canon decided to put a 100% view pentaprism, removed AA filter, uses brand new sensor and not one 5 years old as usual .. whoa! Camera of the year!"

The 20 meg sensor is probably the sensor in the Sony 58 (very good sensor).

That OVF viewfinder sure has good specs compared to any competition.

In reply to:

GoneMirrorless: Scratching head. Why compare when they are so different???
GH4 $1000 less and has 4K option no extras needed
A7s $1000 more needs $2000 option for 4K, undisputed low light king, FF

Where are the real reviews? I wanted to read about the GH4 - the one I can afford - and there is only this which is not helpful to those with an under $2000 budget.

I read GH4 focuses like a top DLSR -big advance for mirrorless- but this review has squat about that.

$1,000? The gh4 is $1700. Lets see who blinks and drop their price in the next 2 months.

Is it the PP or does this camera lens combo have trouble with the red channel?

Jon Porter: I don't see any side arms until the current kit. I'd of thought a soldier would have carried a pistol pretty much since the invention of percussion weapons.

Officers carry pistols for self protection and motivation of troops.

What a fun essay...it would be interesting to see a comparative of enemy and ally. The Helmund province would be pretty drastic, i would think.

Konstantin Shtondenko: Hi, guys.

Pics.io team is here and will be happy to participate in a discussion.

I'll add a bit to the article. The editing doesn't yet use WebGL, so performance during photo editing is poor yet. For now, it's more of a catalog in the cloud, than catalog and editing in the cloud.

Thanks for the clarification...do you have a timetable for augmenting web gl?

In reply to:

steelhead3: I can't believe they sullied that rig with that old Nikon lens.

Obviously my comment was tongue in cheek also; I have a Minolta 600 that looks the same as that old Nikon (AF though).

Nikon should emulate Sigma and release a dock for their cameras and then fix it over the internet (Nikon I won't except compensation, just an idea you need to develop)

I really would like to see some photos with that lens; I can put a 2x TC on my 600f4 and have with a crop camera and FF. Atmosphere just makes this a toy unless you enjoy wavy pictures.
