Peiasdf: Is this an announcement or rumor? Not even a picture of the camera?

EDIT: nevermind. You added the press release now.

Since it wasn't announced in the US, we had no access to press materials. Still trying to round up some photos.

Sangster: "The Nikon 1 J4 will be available outside of the U.S."

Does this mean Nikon is abandoning mirrorless for the masses in America?

I doubt it.

Hi everyone, now that ACR 8.4 is out, I reconverted the 'torture tunnel' shot and also tried my hand at the ISO 8000 indoor statue photo. Wide-open macro shot still to come.

Menneisyys: Wowz!!! You already have two MkII's! DPR, please publish the final review before July! I want to purchase a new enthusiast "compact" before going on Holiday (this July) and still hesitate between this and the RX10. (And the rumoured P8000, of course.)

I'm working on the review now, so if it's not published by July, then something horrible has happened.

Master Yoda: Hi Jeff . . . this is Dark Cobra from your old site. I was glad to see you return to Stanford and San Francisco for many of these shots and we are very used to many of these scenes from your old site. In general the images are at best "alright". I don't see anything that WoW's me at all to be honest. The bridge night scene is good as is the Stanford "tunnel of doom" shot which renders excellent shadow and light detail balance. The sharpness of most of these images could be better. I was thinking about getting this camera but I'm SO glad I resisted and picked up the incredible Fuji X100S. Take care of yourself Jeff!

Thanks guys. Unfortunately this won't be a trend - I just happened to be there over the weekend and thought "what the heck".

Cheng Bao: When I saw the series photo of stanford U, I think these must be jeff's work, and it seems I guessed correctly.

No school guards hush you out of their property this time?

Nope, no security. If anyone should've been busted that day it should be all the wedding photographers shooting there without permission! (not that you should need it in the first place)

Mikael Risedal: what the camera can do?

IMG_0130.dpp
blown high lights, no color resolution in the shadows , inferior DR
Crappy dynamic range

I can push the shadows up a bit more but anything more than that and things get weird. Hoping to get ACR soon.

As soon as I can get ahold of a version of ACR that supports the camera, I will reprocess it with the hope of better results.

In reply to:

Anton Marcu: Does it have to look like it was designed by LEGO.

Also, if it's targeted at "rough" play, can they make the buttons be usable with gloves

It does have a feature where you can tap the top and sides of the camera to adjust certain settings and playback photos, iirc.

h2k: I think you should mention the sensor size clearly in the news text on the front page.

Unfortunately there's only enough space on the homepage. The specs are on this page though, with the sensor size.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (493 comments in total)
In reply to:

ttbek: Why is the Canon PowerShot G1 X II not on the graph? Is it because it would make the Sony look bad (even just a little bit, lol)? Honestly the Sony reviews on here tend to go into fanboy mode -_-. It makes no sense not to have the Canon PowerShot G1 X II on the graph considering that the review has it in the chart just above (but also fails to make note of it in the text, and why isn't the original G1 X in the chart... since it's in the graph). It's a tradeoff of course, less range, but I think it's worth both mentioning in the text (the good and bad of the comparison) and having it plotted on the graph.

We need to have a camera in-hand in order to gather the data to put the G1X II on the chart. Canon was unable to send us a camera and unwilling to report the data from one of theirs.

In reply to:

The Squire: Is the RX10 using the RX100 or RX100II sensor? I ask because the high-ISO noise looks like the 'old' RX100. Almost exactly. While the RX100II looks about 2/3-stop faster than both the RX10 and RX100.

It uses the RX100M2 sensor.

In reply to:

samfan: DPR guys, seriously, please. First impression is the exact opposite of a review. Stop calling it that. Don't hunt for clicks this way.

At full resolution it's 6 fps. We initially heard 22 fps but that's incorrect.

In reply to:

Franka T.L.: well, another mount ... I wonder if Samsung would have an adapter for their larger NX mount lens to be mounted for this NX-M mount If they do not screw up on thier marketing and deliver, it can be an interesting and very viable entry, Ok let's consider, we have for the NX mount already the 16, 20, 30 pancake, and the 60 macro as well as the rather nice 45mm & 85/1.4 .. I would discount the zoom as quite clearly a zoom for this rather smaller coverage ( the sensor ) really would benefit better with a dedicated lens specific to that sensor coverage.

Between the Nikon 1 and this NX-M they represent some really forward thinking though it remain to be seen if they can pull it off

There will be an adapter to use NX lenses. The price $100-something.

In reply to:

peevee1: DPR wrote: "The V3 has a large advantage over its predecessor, not only having more contrast detect areas (171 vs. 135), but more phase detect points as well (171 vs. 73)."

Their press-release says that only center 105 areas support phase detection, not all 171.

Good catch, thanks.

In reply to:

uRebel Rob: What do the dials do, if they don't control Exp Comp? They can't be reconfigured?

On the Gx7, the default settings have both dials adjusting A/SS in A and S modes, respectively. This doesn't make sense to me. It was one of the first changes I made, and now the front dial does Exp Comp. Could the V3 be like this, have a wierd default setting that can be changed?

They control shutter speed and aperture only. From what we've seen, there's no way to redefine their function.

gerard boulanger: Too small sensor, Nikon has to go DX on same concept

For $1200 they *do* throw in the EVF and the grip.

beavertown: Guess how much for EVF?

$320 USD?

Anyone?

At this point I don't think you can buy it separately in the US.

IndianCanuck: The review mentions kit lens as 25-85, should it not be corrected to 24-85? Plain ignorance or typo??? ;)

Where did you see this typo exactly?
