burnin: An 'all-in-one" camera without a built-in flash doesn't make a whole lot of sense. At all.

If I had to choose I'd radder have hot shoe over build in flash if there is no place for both...

In reply to:

Jogger: I guess the PEN line is officially dead. Aside from a stripper entry model, there's really no room for it in the current Oly lineup. And, it doesnt make sense for a small player like Oly to have ore models than Canon or Nikon.

@peeveee currently e-pl6 is in stores in all major camera in holland, and they are selling 100 euros cheaper than e-pl5 !

Matthewson: I really don't understand the push for mirrorless cameras. The latest installments from Olympus look like SLR's from the outside, with a "pentaprism" of sorts sitting on top. I'd vote down anything that adds cost, complexity, and battery draw. Peering at a tiny video of your scene serves only to separate the photographer further from his subject. The original OM line had reflex mirrors, and were compact. The only gripe I had back then, in the 80's, was the strap lugs dug into my palms. From the look of it, they're still putting those nasty strap lugs on their cameras.

" Peering at a tiny video of your scene serves only to separate the photographer further from his subject"
Thats Not true, and this is why: - this "tiny video" you're peering at is the same and ONLY one you will be peering at when you take the picture, there is no going back to real world view, you have a picture that you can print or view it on your monitor. Also current best olympus electronic vewfinder is as large as best optical viewfinders out there
About being separated from your subject - thats what I see when my DSLR friends shot, than put down the camera to look at display ( histogram etc ) = all this time I am still with the subject because I have all this info all the time ( or I can turn if off If I want )

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' article (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

arhmatic: So far, great!

My 2 cents, Fuji.

- Never go full frame
- Don't go plastic
- Strategize somehow so bodies, lenses too, maintain resale value. My old X-E1 kit, one year old, is only worth half now.

@RichRMA, my 2 and half year old x100 all metal build has dust & hairs in viewfinder, totaly WORN out metal lugs, no text left on buttons, and "sticky aperture blades"problem, and my plastic lumix Gh2, older than my x100 aside from some minor scratches no issues at all. So Ï'd say - plastic no problem at all!

In reply to:

write2alan: Here is an idea for Fujifilm: Make a camera body that can take Nikon lenses. Make a camera body that can take Canon lenses and etc... You'll sell truck loads of them overnight. Who has Fujifilm lenses? I don't see that many hands up.

or even better get a system with 2 camera manufacturers that also make lenses for the same system! = m43

Vlasty: And people complained Nikons 1 system 32mm was expensive. :/

it's good to have choices, one can get outstanding 45mm olympus for much less

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 Review preview (350 comments in total)
In reply to:

JJ Rodin: EOSHD said the video was essentially superior to the GH3 by a small margin, and only short of the BMCC/PPCC in rendering shadows. So equal or better than GH3 which we all know is only inferior to 5DIII & BMCC/PCC is a solid statement for its video.

So either DPR or EOSHD are not judging well.

The GM1 sensor is a new Panasonic built one, unlike the Sony sensor in GH3, some believe the GM1 foretells what to be expected for GH4 but full 4k video, &/or full sensor scans downcasting! Likely just good 4k video.

Good that Pan did not cripple GM1 like many other cam makers likely would! Good price considering.

I'll quote eoshd on it "The GM1 is a surprise in low light. At ISO 3200 the GH3 has a lot of brown noise crawling over the image and detail begins to smudge. The GM1 here outperforms the GH3 with a much cleaner image with less noise and richer colour. It’s actually on par with the best Super 35mm cameras for video like the Nikon D5200 for low light. But it resolves more fine detail than the Nikon and has more features, despite being the size of a compact camera."

binauralbeats: Incredible engineering. Really shows what's possible with m43.

that;s the strenght of this system, having two so different manufacturers making cameras and lenses with same mount

In reply to:

sderdiarian: DPR, when will voting for the camera of the year be? It also would have been interesting to simply have best interchangeable lens camera of the year rather than best mirrorless and best DSLR/SLT. My guess, the E-M1 would clean up either way.

no brainer for this calculation indeed :P

In reply to:

GPW: Bottom line is that 3rd party accessories are cheaper for a reason!!! Why take the chance?

the only reason 3d party accessories are cheaper is that price on original is 4 to 5 higher than it should be. Are you forced to use energizer brand batteries in your TV remote control? what all of the sudden duracell can not make batteries?

In reply to:

Salvatore Castrovinci: Bad, Very bad Idea !

Fortunately I possess only a D70s and Micro Nikkor 55mm f: 2.8 ......

all the batteries of my cameras (RICOH GXR, PENTAX K10, SIGMA SD14 / 15 etc ... etc ...) except the one purchased in boundle are compatible batteries that I used for years without any problem ....... and their price ranges is from 1/10 to 1/5 of the original battery!

We know that Nikon does not have the technology and industries to produce batteries and probably its batteries are manufactured by companies that also sell on their behalf .......

And is unbearable to spend so much money for an identical product, with same or little less features, to own!

We have come to a creeping form of begging industry to exploit its monopoly!!

I hope, for Nikon for a reformation on this idea.

Best regards

Salvatore

indeed what nikon is doing here is telling us that only Duracell can make bateries and varta, energiezer and others can not, hopefully people will not be fooled by this behaviour from major companies like Nikon

My mistake, somehow I thought focal lenght difference would not be that great

In reply to:

(unknown member): Dear Canon,
Is this a joke? I'm glad I stopped waiting for you to make a real MILC. This is another (more?) pitiful attempt. By the way, on your next try, at least add an EVF or the ability to slap one on. Maybe borrow the outstanding VF-4 from Olympus.

vf-4 = epson :)

In reply to:

carrigman: "For anyone simply looking for the best image quality from a compact, the RX100 II is the answer." You can stop reading after that. IQ is what it's all about and the RX100 (versions 1 and 11) delivers that in spades. I have the original RX100 and I am constantly amazed at the quality it delivers.

size? if you want larger camera? gm1 is smaller than this sony
