On 2015 Superzoom Camera Roundup article (166 comments in total)
In reply to:

Henrik Herranen: Dear DPreview,

why isn't sensor size at (or close to) the top of the "Specs Compared" table on Page 1? What is it that makes you unwilling of putting sensor size as a key parameter in your tables, be it a camera or mobile phone comparison?

Please?

Thanks Peter, I updated it. I think that was copied from Fuji's original spec sheet which doesn't say BSI either. But it is indeed BSI.

The S1 has a BSI-CMOS as well.

Dougbm_2: FZ200??????
Surely this is a must consider. More so than the short zoom Oly.

Too short a zoom for this comparison.

Should be okay now.

In reply to:

Rodrigo Ayres Bordin: Is it possible to connect the camera to the computer, and download the pictures directly to a folder (Windows), or the camera only connects to smartphones?

Yes, you can easily connect to a PC over USB

On Sony RX100 IV compact shoots 4k, uses a stacked sensor article (310 comments in total)
In reply to:

Martian Keyboard: I have to re-quote the link that The-Bunker posted below because it seems so worthy to know about Stacked Sensors.

It could be the next generation of sensor technology, - I'm not sure.

If it is what I seem to understand, it will even make phone cameras significantly improved.

Sony's Exmor RS sensors are already being used in phones, like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4/Galaxy S6 and LG G4.

cgarrard: I'm actually interested in this.... It's got a viewfinder, nice fixed lens... in two years price may come down enough to be affordable :).

It has both mechanical and electronic shutter. The latter tops out at 1/16000 sec.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 real-world samples article (102 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gavril Margittai: These images are very similar to each other. I did not learn from them too much. With plenty of daylight my wife's Iphone6 can do just as well. Maybe not if you pixel peep, but these are not images worth pixel peeping.
I would expect DPR to take the trouble of putting more variety in. How about some night shots? how about a nice portrait in available (low) light inside a subway station?

Should I learn from these "real world samples" that the G7 is only good for snaps? I don't believe this is true.

To be fair, Seattle is mostly cloudy 300 days out of the year ☺

papa natas: $4 for a miserable pack of Rainbow Carrots?
Stop the madness, please!!!
They won't make you live longer, as those health prophets tell you..(?)
And they won't taste better either.
Off the mill supermarket carrots will do just fine.

Hey, they have to pay the rent at Pike Place Market somehow...

OneLeggedCat: "and one of the very few with Raw support" ... Wut?

Perhaps I should clarify: we're speaking about currently shipping superzooms that are in the $300-600 range, which we're going to be doing a group review of very soon.

Of all the current superzooms it's one of only two cameras with Raw support, the Canon SX60 being the other one.

TheWhiteDog: That female snowy owl has now been in 3 compact mega zoom photo galleries. Not complaining, she is gorgeous but if she isn't getting royalties I hope the photographer at least got her to sign a model release! ;)

And we still have two more galleries to go!

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 offers 4K video article (128 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Squire: Any info on the 4K video bit-rates? Assuming 100Mbps, but not listed above.

Bit of a shame that, like the LX100, they've not offered a high bit-rate 1080p mode.

100Mbps 4K and 50Mbps 1080p would be nice to have.

Unfortunately we don't have a field in our DB for bit rate (yet), but it's 100MBs for 4K and 28Mbps for 1080p.

bazzap101: Some typos in the Specs list regarding Built in Flash :-)

Can you be more specific?

In reply to:

spatz: From the waterfall and aircraft museum shots, edge sharpness on the 7-14 appears very good (at least stepped down to f/5), and I couldn't detect any chromatic aberrations. It would be great to get some shots at f/2.8. While these scenes probably called for more DOF, if we are to evaluate the lens, some shots wide open would be appreciated. Also, flare is important.

The 7-14 could become my second "pro" lens. If the 40-150 price evolution is an example, street prices should be 1/4 to 1/3 below MSRP in about six months. I am sure the 8mm will find it's fans, but it is just not for me.

There are now a couple of F2.8 shots at the top of the gallery.

In reply to:

Stephen McDonald: Well, these photos look better than others I've seen previously from the SX60. I had considered its performance to be inferior to that of the older SX50. But Jeff Keller always seems able to squeeze more out of such cameras. So this is not actually a "real-world" gallery as stated, it's Jeff's world, that not many others are able to inhabit.

I appreciate the compliment, though it took four of us to put this gallery together. But thanks to Sam Spencer for risking his life to take a photo of the middle of the river!

In reply to:

Wesley Byrne: Not too bad, really. Seems perfectly fine for photos for the web at up to about 2000 px max dimension. But I wouldn't want to make large prints or crop much with photos from this camera.

Is that "mountain lion" what many of us would call a bobcat?

you are correct, sir.
