Raist3d: DPreview- the right comparison is X-E2s vs X-E2 *with* new firmware. What is really new? Auto button... higher res LCD? what else?

the grip :)

kadardr: The price of 700 or 800 dollars needs a clarification. Why does the press release says 700 and then Amazon taking pre-orders for 800 dollars? 700 looks like a very reasonable launch price, and the 800 is shooting towards the Coolpix A's launch price, which sales actually never flew. 700 is competitive with the GRII. So let's wait.

Looking into the pricing issue...

schaki: Still no Raw. Always thought the TG-850 and 860 looked like potentially nice waterproof cameras with that wide zoom, but disappointed by the NR which really showed off to the negative side in review sample-images.
Hope that Olympus have opted for less crazy foliage-ruining NR this time or at least have NR options.

The TG-4 has Raw...

Correct, thanks.

In reply to:

Tugela: Is that an iFn button on the base?

I see what you did there. That is the unlock button for extending the lens.

Steve_: "In low brightness situation, use it demonstrates its preeminent power. "

Wow. Certainly wouldn't be worth putting on a native English speaker, would it?

Easily my favorite line in the press release.

In reply to:

MarcLee: One error. One lack of mention:

Yes, there IS 23.98p Full HD video, which is the US-friendly equivalent of 24P.

There is a very usable ECO mode which gives you battery life of around 310 shots, which is actually BETTER than the RX100 Mk IV and not bad at all considering touch screens drain more battery.

People should not be misled on these factors by this review.

You are correct about the 24p frame rate- I will update the review.

When we discuss battery life we use the CIPA numbers so everyone is on a level playing field. There is an indeed an Eco mode which comes with a few compromises in order to stretch out the battery life.

Mike FL: DPR,

What's the Viewfinder magnification?

I have not been able to find that information. All I know is that it's a 0.39" panel (same as RX100 IV).

mpgxsvcd: I would have loved to see the little depth of field comparison chart for this camera vs. its competitors. Was it included in the review and I just missed it?

Good review otherwise.

You are correct. Fixed that, thanks.

In reply to:

Samuel Dilworth: What is the shot-to-shot time in raw? I hope I didn’t miss this somewhere in the review.

To me, the shot-to-shot time is much more important than the continuous frames per second.

Thanks.

It's around the same as continuous shooting - about 1 second.

Aw shucks, thanks guys! <blush>

Oh and I put the equivalent aperture diagram on page 3.

Good review otherwise.

It's a link buried in the conclusion. I'll try to put it on one of the pages so it's more visible.

On article Sony finalizes buyout of Toshiba's sensor business (91 comments in total)
In reply to:

Impulses: " Except for Canon and Samsung, both of which manufacture their own APS-C and larger sensors, every other camera manufacturer, including Nikon, will now pretty much have to rely on Sony. "

Uhh, Panasonic has used their own sensors in all M4/3 bodies over the last couple years but one IIRC (GH3?). AFAIK they still hold a 49% stake in the sensor manufacturing business they built and probably still design them from the ground up.

Also, rumors keep percolating about where Samsung's camera assets may end up... I'd be surprised if they sold the actual sensor manufacturing division tho since that's probably more lucrative than camera's themselves but at the same time not something a smaller company might be able to take on.

Keeping fabs running thru demand is the only way to make the huge initial investment in them profitable (as well as offsetting the costs to keep manufacturing processes up to date).

Sony does make 16 and 20 megapixel Four Thirds sensors, so you never know.

Hugo808: I think they've quit too soon. Sure, most of us are wedded to Canikon but new people take up the hobby all the time and there aint nothing wrong with Samsung stuff. They've just got to invest a bit more and hope for the best.

If I recall correctly, Asia is where mirrorless does best. Also, Samsung is bailing on all photo products in the UK and Germany, not just the NX1.

justmeMN: "Only an official statement from Samsung will confirm or deny this rumor, and we've reached out to the company for just that." -DPR

DPR reaches out, and Samsung runs away. :-)

Samsung's failure to respond just adds fuel to the fire.

We're still waiting on the promised response from Samsung HQ!

In reply to:

fdfgdfgdgf: Development?
Thats mean its still in LABS so how it could be in stores in two months? (CES)
Testing/feedbacs takes 3 months alon

I think it's safe to say that it won't be in stores in two months. Probably several months after the official announcement, whenever that is.

In reply to:

Arn: Since there is still no response whatsoever from Samsung, I think we can begin to assume this is more than just a rumor.

We're still being told that a response is forthcoming...

In reply to:

otto k: Thank you for taking time to check with them as you are big enough that they might actually reply, but this supposed email used *exactly the same text* as did this regarding laptops a year ago:
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/laptop/samsung-exits-laptop-market-including-chromebooks-3573470/
"We quickly adapt to market needs and demands. In Europe, we will be discontinuing sales of laptops including Chromebooks for now. This is specific to the region – and is not necessarily reflective of conditions in other markets," said a Samsung spokesperson.

Also, "our product is not good enough" was said by no company, ever.

Also, the source was not Andrew but someone else on forum who in the mean time received clarification that they are actually making new model so they are pulling old one (?) and now he's waiting for additional classification.

Head, meet hurt.

Thanks for finding that, otto. Unless that's a boilerplate response from Samsung I can't imagine that this is anything but a hoax.
