ET2: Funny DPR still did not include Nex-C3 with 16-50 in size comparison page

Why is that?

Probably since the NEX-C3 has long been discontinued :)

In reply to:

sugardaddy: I couldn't find anything mentioned in the original article. Was the supplied silicone grease applied to the O-ring at all, either first time attaching the lens or before the dip?

I know a lot of people originally wanted a dial of some kind but the zoom buttons act as a dial, which is pretty intuitive to me (I own the AW1). Buttons are a LOT easier to waterproof than moving knobs.

First of all, despite what some of the commenters here are saying, I *did* read the waterproofing section before using the camera.

Second, the manual says to "inspect" the O-Ring before going attaching the lens, which is exactly what I did. It also says that the silicone is to improve the lifespan of the ring and to make attaching the lens easier. Since the camera was new - and the manual did not mention it - I did not apply any silicone.

In reply to:

Binone: Hi Jeff:
You and I were on Maui with an AW1 at about the same time. I agree with your comments and the pros & cons. The first day I was in the water with it - also at Kaanapali - I really couldn't see much on the LCD. I had the camera set to the center focus area and a lot of shots were out of focus. So, the next time, I set it to automatic focus, but it was worse. That day was very sunny and I think that it focused on bubbles & specs in the water. So, I changed it back to center focus, and also found the LCD brightness setting and got better results, although I never saw a turtle -great shot.

Unfortunately, after 4 days I noticed that the glass cover over the front of the lens would immediately fog when I put the camera in the water. This didn't happen the first few days I was there, so obviously moisture entered the camera, but it kept working. Like you, I was very careful with it. It's now at Nikon's service center. I hope that the solution is simple.

Interesting! I didn't see any other AW1's, so I must've missed you. Sounds like water got through the O-Ring!

Nope, didn't put silicone on the o-ring the first time - didn't even think about it since it was nice and new. on the second camera, I did. Looking at the damage to the camera, it seems like the water came in through the door over the I/O ports.

Thanks to the feedback from some readers, I discovered that Nikon does indeed include the O-Ring protector. It's attached to the body cap (something I didn't even notice when I took it off), so you just snap it off and put it over the ring. Apologies for the error.

iBuzz: I have the Nikon AW1 and the O-Ring protector is INCLUDED with the camera. Look on the body cap! It's one of the first thing you get in the user manual.

Thanks, will re-check this one.

Jerodequin: Hello DPReview - could you please explain what 'Poor Program Line' means in the cons for the GX7? Thanks!

There are plenty of people (read: people other than the core DPR audience) who will shoot in Program or Auto mode. Also, since this is an unusual issue, it's worth pointing out.

KTClown: Small, but Serious.
The PL5 should be on the list. Same sensor as the more expensive EM5 & EM1, add the view finder and it's a good all around shooter.
My opinion.

I believe the E-PL5 is in one of the future articles.

As mentioned in our full review (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonic-lumix-dmc-gx7/9), when shooting in Program or Auto mode(s), the GX7 will stop down the aperture to the point where diffraction comes into play, rather than increase the shutter speed.

In reply to:

Buena Vista: I sure wish there weren't so many holes in the side-by-side spec comparison, especially for the Samsung. Why not fill in the blanks, dp?

Also it looks as though having a viewfinder is heavily weighted. Why? Not everyone needs a viewfinder, especially given the quality of some of the screens in these cameras.

Unfortunately, Samsung doesn't give us much in the line of specs when a product is initially entered into our database. That said, I've trudged through the manual and attempted to fill in the blanks.

In reply to:

Rob Sims: Should the title of this particular article really have been "Small but serious" when the two recommendations were by far largest and heaviest cameras (400g / 390g) in the group, despite having the smallest sensors?

http://camerasize.com/compare/#478,289

(And before the hordes of m43 users come screaming in rubbishing every other sensor size, I don't disagree with either recommendations, just perhaps the title of the article)

When we say "small, but serious", this is what we mean by "small':

In reply to:

Impulses: Is there a formatting error on the mobile site or something? The line that reads:

" However, even without taking that step, these enthusiast models offer until recently undreamt of image quality in a more compact package "

Shows up at the start of the last paragraph, when I'm pretty sure it's meant to go at the end of said pantagraph (contextually).

You're probably seeing the "pull quote" in the wrong place. I'll let our developers know.

tjbates: On the GH3 page - must be a typo.
"What we liked"
"What we like" ..... should read "What we don't like."

Fixed.
