pascal b: it is said that dilated pupils are often a criteria of beauty. and I agree.http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/life/human-biology/love-make-pupils-dilate1.htm
She looks sick.
Wow, I didn't know a kid can create something that ugly. >.<
Wow, amazingly ugly. >.<
Alexander Vienna: thats the first review I can not understand.... tried this camera 2 times.... results are not impressing at all.. Pictures have a digital look like years ago...... ugly colours
Welcome to Panasonic! ;)
km25: Leaf shutters are good for flash sync.. But for very day use FP is so much better. I saw this "change" coming. In the olden days, Rolli came out with a 1/800 electro leaf shutter, it had the same caveats. This camera was not well thouht out.
IS is always good to have!
Gary Dean Mercer Clark: This camera makes me want to buy a Sigma DP2M and DP1M for $2000.00 and have $799.00 change left. DP2M will blow away the overpriced RX1 in image detail and quality.
The RX1's AF won't be any faster than the Sigma.
I hope DPR reviews even more gadgets in the future!
What lens did you use?
webrunner5: Sony is only getting a 10% stake in the company. They will be in no position to call all the shots. Or TAKE OVER the medical part of Oly. Good god people they are not going to own Oly.
Sad Joe: The 1st update - surely with a brand new system we shouldn't need updates so early on? Oh yes we do because Nikon (and others) are much more like Microsoft nowadays....never had an update to my Nikon FE - now that was a REAL Nikon!
Surely not the last update - just watch this space....
codeNsnap: Too bad this converter cannot be used with the new X series 14mm f/2.8-http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/accessories/lens/conversionlens/x100wideconversionlens/index.html
Of course not.
Dirk Jaspers is product manager at Nikon Europe. He knows as much about Nikon's longterm strategy as anybody else working for a Japanese camera maker outside of Japan. You don't even need to bother interviewing them.
Why hasn't dpreview.com added a Hasselblad forum yet?
Berghof: and I say why not? if some like to drive a Lamborghini why not to spend 10 grand or more for a fancy Italian design camera? if I had the big bucks I would consider getting one of these beauties as well
Italian? It's Swedish!
J GGG: I just can't wait...I just love my X1 Pro and the 3 lenses + X100...It is tecnically sound and so "photographic", it's not just a bunch of pixels, but real photo...my Canon 5 MkIII is getting rusty and mouldy...!
What do you understand under "photographic"?
SheikYerbouti: A zoom lens on a rangefinder type of camera seems to be going against everything that rangefinders were originally designed for. But, as Fuji have demonstrated with their X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras, it can be done quite elegantly. Still, I'm wondering how useful and how intuitive a zoom will be on these cameras? To me a zoom makes much more sense on an SLR because its through-the-lens view is more suitable for framing and composing an image with a zoom. I think rangefinder photographers are better off with 2, 3 or 4 excellent prime lenses in the bag ...
... which gives me an idea: Wouldn't it be nice if at some point in the future Fuji introduced a high quality, compact, K-5-style SLR that made use of their amazing X-Trans sensor? Maybe Photokina 2014 would be the right time to announce such a camera?
No point for Fujifilm to enter the DSLR market again.
quiddity: I've had the FZ200 for one week. Cannot yet comment on picture quality, but:
1. Full manual is on a CD ROM. Not convenient for taking into the field. Of course you can print it, but there is no index and the organization is less than desirable. E.g., the graphic showing the icons that may be displayed on the LCD/viewfinder is near the end of the manual.
2. The ergomomics are less than desirable. You have to use only your middle and fourth finger on the grip, with your pinky below the camera. Otherwise your forefinger reaches beyond the shutter button & zoom control.
3. When holding the camera, the heel of your right hand can easily-accidently press one of the buttons on the camera back.
4: This MAY be just a fluke: I took a shot of a sky with dark clouds and bright sky shining between them. The viewfinder showed the bright sky as dull and the momentary display of the resulting picture showed the same. However, when I looked at the picture later, the sky was bright.
Yeah indeed, I rather buy a shitty camera with a printed manual. Btw who needs a manual???
OhioPhoto: I've been involved in some difficult product launches. And here's what typically happens.
80% of the people on the team are frustrated or disheartened by the response. A lot of genuinely professional and well-intentioned people have a lot on the line here. And I feel for them.
20% will insist that the product is the photographic equivalent of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring -- people rioted when it first came out, but over time it was embraced as a classic.
I hope for Hassy's sake the 20% are justified in their optimism. Great company. Great tradition. But this is a tough one. They know the photo community can be brutal.
What are you talking about? They have no reason to be optimistic and they shouldn't be!
Boerseuntjie: Hey Idiots, just buy the Leica X2 Paul Smith / Orange Panasonic point and shoot for $3,250 and shut up about this already, it's so yesterday.
That cameras looks way better.
Tom_A: Very good interview, except the interviewer could, in my opinion, have asked a few questions about the popularity of mirrorless cameras in the lower price range, and how does the N1 perform there. Etc.
Exactly, DPR isn't very critical unfortunately...
