  • @cjep1 : yes, i was thinking about RX100 II, with additionnal viewfinder too.
    Even an old XZ-2 + viefinder or LX7 + viewfinder can be good options against X30. I totally love my XZ-2 ring command,...

  • I loved "do so much more than simply spend all my pocket money on spools of Kodachrome 25." ;)
    Sometimes, i find funny assertions, made by hipsters lomo, telling they spend less money with their...

  • When you take the interchangeable lens path, it costs you a lot of money. Because you NEED to buy good lenses to squeeze the best from the body. On my side, i have already 4 lenses for different...

  • Like Dxo will bring more than 100 score soon ;)
    A lot of ppl thought 100 was a % score.

  • @jeremyclarke : they don't forget to make a serious mirrorless. They do it on purpose to avoid conflict with their DSLR ;)
    In the mean time, they are in conflict with all others serious mirrorless...

  • Some wise guy said USA is a strange market where ppl tend to show their big DSLR (and car) to prove their social success.
    And so, mirrorless are not big enough to win in the USA market ;)
    I loved...

  • Once again, Canon try to avoid conflicts between DSLR and mirrorless in THEIR brand.
    But they forget they already have concurrent products from Sony, Fuji, Olympus, Panasonic and even Samsung...

  • Everything beats M3 in the mirrorless world in this range...so it is easy to take any concurrent product and make it a champion ;)
    A6000 still a good option, but not the best. There are no...

  • You didn't understood : it was not 20% of market share.
    It is just ppl CARING about M3. 80% ppl don't even care (like me)
    And 20% ppl who cares are not going to buy it just because they care.
    You...

  • First difficult choice is : interchangeable lens or fixed compact ?
    Because (i know it from hard experience) when you start with inter lens...you buy more than expected ;)
    I started with two lenses...

  • I said i prefer my XZ-2 to LX100, witch is strange comparing sensors.
    I prefer my E-PL5 + 20mm to anything i owned so far, even XZ-2 ;)
    I keep XZ-2 because it is convenient to cover 28-112mm in a...

  • i use a similar Olympus cable with an older YN. And it works without unit mounted on hotshoe. So yours will probably work. It is nice to have a simple cable release or remote with this kind of cable. ...
  • I was more on the Normal side, because i like contrast and shadows. But i tried Auto again. And i like it sometimes. I thought, like OrdinarilyInordinate, i could use Auto with some curve tweaking, ...
  • Things are moving fast for some years. And now even faster.
    Sony is the biggest camera sensors provider for Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus...and Sony ;)
    I'm not afraid for their camera division because...

  • How I see it : Gradation will protect highlights by something like 1/3 stop (a trick I use a lot outdoor) and recover lost shadows by bumping them from the raw sensor output. So yes, you loose ...
  • Kenko are metal machined with very strict mechanical constraints, it keeps tilt minimal. Very solid mount for heavy lenses. When you stack tubes, you add tilt too. Kenko are for very picky ...
  • If you cumulate all IDGAF votes in the last DPR poll about M3, you get 80%
    USA or not, it is a failure. I'm European, i love mirrorless concept (even if i love OVF pentaprism too).
    And frankly,...

  • Mirrorless war started in 2008. They still don't take mirrorless seriously.
    They are the first DSLR maker, so they are going to be the first down to the floor when DSLR will loose its leadership....
