Article sounds like nonsense to me.

People have mobile phones on them all the time that can take photo's. Camera sales drop. Conclusion? Mobile phones are too complicated.

ShoppingBoy: Thanks for this exciting news. Apple are probably the top innovators in photography today. I'm looking forward to growing with them in the coming years.

Nice troll shoppingboy :D

Frightening thing is there will be people who read that nodding knowingly to themselves !

In reply to:

SideshowSurfer: Wow, a lot of haters on this thread. I definitely want one! Why? Because I already have my phone in my pocket always. And now all I need is this tiny thing in my pocket and I have a rather decent quality camera that's going to take pretty good low light indoor pics. I see this as the perfect camera to take out partying, or just to have with you all day long, every day. So no, it is not the same as an RX100 etc, because then I have to somehow fit my phone, my wallet, keys, AND an RX100 in my pockets. Not possible. But with this little thing, Possible!!!

The device looks like it will fit in a pocket and its certainly bigger than most of their marketing photo's lead you to believe. So that puts it in the same category as a pocket-able rx100III and I would be very surprised it compares well against such a camera.

Now if Apple made the One it would be snapped up, but DXo aren't Apple.

alenis: Comparing the studio test scene, I would say that the Canon G7 x performs better, especially at the corners..

jennyhappy2 in fairness the comparison was IQ, not EVF or anything else.

grammieb14: The claim is DSLR image quality. If this is true, it would top other compact choices. Bab

The claim is bs unless they have broken the laws of physics.

To compare the size of this camera to the Sony RX cameras should they have both cameras turned on their side? Really that was intentional, who knew. Every cheap half arsed marketing gimmick has been used to promote this thing!

Also had a look at my wife's iphone and the port that this plugs into looks like it won't hold up to much abuse.

Great idea but a few problems to sort out before it comes near to replacing a quality compact camera. That includes the daft price!

Makes the A6000 look like a bargain as a stills camera.

ancaster: As my DSLR alternative, if I have to carry something else, I see used RX100m3's for the same price albeit bigger, but not dependent on other hardware and won't drain my iPhone battery. $599 pricepoint will hurt significant sales.

As it offloads some things to the phone won't it therefore be using the phones battery as well as its own. Or will it feed the phone from its own battery while its plugged in.

Far too expensive but nice bit of tech.

naththo: Sony sensor is now nailed in the coffin! Can't believed it! Samsung trump over Sony by miles!

HowaboutRAW (1 day ago)

Nope, there isn't really any "issue" (meaning deficiency) with the Samsung NX lens line up, with the exception of not having released the big fast telephoto yet. But it exists.

So, incorrect.

And "quality" is not an adjective.

-------------------------------------------------

The review states that their lens line up isn't up to the task with few exceptions.

You say no deficiency with their line up then agree there is one with the lack of any fast prime. This camera is aimed at the higher end of the market and doesn't have have a lens line up to compete with say Canons rebel series.

So incorrect.

Samsung's issue is their lens line up and their name. That's a lot of money to put on a camera body with a limited line up of quality lenses. Now imagine Nikon or Canon with their respective following introducing a camera like this. Camera forums would explode!

I hope Samsung put their full financial weight behind this camera as, even with Sony pushing, the market still needs another big name.

Canon/Nikon should have been the ones introducing this type of camera instead of relying on their market dominance.

munro harrap: There is also another good reason for keeping all the art we have here here. Its called war. You can see online what IS and the Taliban do, so their people's culture would be safer were it in the UK, all of ity, rather than in Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan, and we now also have to control who is allowed to buy stuff as any number of artworks purchased privately not only disappear into bank vaults,

but can be bought by people who then destroy them as ideologically unacceptable.
I dare say that is already happening, so stop sales and guard our human heritage.

Wow so you aren't mentally impaired just stupid and ignorant beyond believe. The UK isn't a whites only country, far from it, something you would be aware of if you had half a brain cell or the ability to type on your keyboard without drooling on it.

Governments the world over attempt to hold onto historically important artifacts. Its about money sometimes and (I would hope in this instance) about protecting an important album that may otherwise fall into a private collection and be lost to the world not just the UK.

The original reference to ISIS/Taliban is due to their own propaganda videos showing them destroying priceless historic artifacts (statues usually) that we are now all the poorer to be without.

Also are you aware that you are been openly racist on an open forum. You are the only person to bring colour into this. Maybe you should be more thoughtful in what you post?

JDThomas are you mentally impaired in some way? The benefit of typing a response is the time it gives you to think (I believe this to be your problem) before you post. Give it a go you never know you may type something intelligent (I doubt it buy still worth a go).

So you think you could firmware update say your TV to 'enable' touchscreen? I think your grasp of technology may be lacking :D

When its Holi people say happy Holi, when its Eid, people say Eid Mubarak, so we can't people say Happy Christmas?

Serious Sam: Olivia is SERIOUSLY HOT!!! (I need to go out more.. I know)

Now on to the serious stuff.
I hear you mention you shoot at ISO 400, isn't that affecting your DR since maximum DR for Xtrans sensor starts at ISO 800. Since you shoot RAW, I assume you use LR5. Most Fuji shooter can't get the best sharpness with LR5. Did you over come that problem?? Also you guys don't find the "Processed RAW" from Fuji a problem?

The controls on the X-T1 is excellent though. All the essential dials on the top ready for access. I think this is one of it key attraction.

Although not direct related to this shooting. It would be nice if you can mention the hunting problem of the AF system in AFC mode. This is actually the main reason stop me from upgrading from my X-E1.

Also Fuji need to price its product better. Currently X-T1 w XF 18-55mm goes for au$1,635.00 while I can get the brand new A7ii with 28-70 for au$1739 another reason stop me from upgrading..in fact thinking of switching.

By Daniel Lauring

"The focus performance of the A7 is not nearly as good as the X-T1."

Really? I thought the main weakness of the X-T1 was its poor focus tracking?

ogl: Fujifilm X100T and Sigma offer the best IQ....Another strange choice of voters...
Really, no Ricoh GR...
FZ1000....

Abusrd voting

The sigma that has no viewfinder only 9 focus points and struggles to gain focus in anything but good light. It sacrifices far too much to achieve its image quality.

Even taking consideration its weak points I voted LX100.

Its a lot of camera squeezed into a relatively compact body.
