nikon power: Don't let the price scare you.
Nikon's shutter durability is 200,000 cycles.
$3,299/200,000 = 1.6 cent per picture.
Other branded cameras' durability cycle may be the same or less but the EXIF from their photos won't show NIKON, the King of high end DSLR.

Photos say more about the quality, not the EXIF

I was a little disappointed to read a piece of rumor about a Panasonic camera a while ago, which was copy and paste from a Hongkong socialite's blog.

Now this unboxing article is even better as DPR jump on the bandwagon mocking Leica.

DPR is certainly changing. Let's hope it is for better in a long run.

Someone just got fired in Leica.

beril2013: i want a camera that takes excellent photos and excellent video for family.. Taking photos of my daughter while she is swimming at the beach etc... My budget is $1000 . I don't want a DSLR. Is the rx100 iii suitable for me? or can i get something better for $1000? size doesn't matter by the way.

But he said he doesn't want a DSLR.

In reply to:

Paul Kersey Photography: the most obvious failing in the M3 is the lack of improvements with the ergonomics. The RX100 was an enjoyable camera that could have been better with a decent grip and/or an improved non-slippery surface area.

The Sony grip is rather inexpensive if you wish to add one on. As Babka08 indicated, a leather case will provide sufficient amount of grip.

Love the photo of that photographer, timeless!

One way to cure your GAS is buy a Leica and 50mm like Henri Cartier-Bresson did.

In reply to:

tecnoworld: This is what I wrote one month ago as a comment to the nx30 preview

http://www.dpreview.com/previews/samsung-nx30

'Imo this is a 'just' a good camera, too expensive, that does not shine in any field.'

I see with pleasure that the reviewers share my ideas. Unfortunately those things can't be said on samsung forum.

I'm really happy to see this camera treated for what it's worth. Just another decently good/average camera. NOTHING MORE.

And samsung needs so much more than this to be interesting.

They need to be better than anyone else at a lower price. Not just as good as some, worse than others, at a higher price.

Samsung really needs to go back to school.

And, the shape. Ridicolously big, bulky, dslr like. Please...argh.

Ohhhhh, I'm so satisfied.

DPR is recruiting, quick! :P

Looks like the pop up electric view finder also uses Zeiss coating (marked a T* in front of the EVF), if this is the case, perhaps it is one of a kind for this?

In reply to:

Black Box: Sony are truly genious! They now finance their R&D with actual buyers money! RX100 - too many problems. RX100 II - SOME problems solved but no good lens. And finally RX100 III - much better... but still not really polished. And people have to pay for their experimentation. I bet it'll be a trendy approach among camera makers.

You got to think outside of the black box :P

In reply to:

Eleson: This puzzles me.
The differences between this one and the mk2 are big enough to warrant a new name and to sell them in parallel.
Why mk3?

RX200 will be more different perhaps? :)

I tried to think of any camera that has a pop-up view finder...

This camera is really one of its kind it seems! impressive.

What matters is the end product.
Stop criticizing without knowledge.

When I looked some of the photos, this funny word came into my mind :

Bokehlicious!

In reply to:

alexpaynter: I am struggling to see why this is better than an a6000. I am assuming it has the same processor, same sensor, same autofocus etc.

It has a bulkier body which some may find easier to hold.

More A moutn lenses to choose from?

dw2001: cool, now sony have more mirrorless full frame bodies than lenses for the system...how is it possible?!?!

There are 3 full frame bodies at the moment, there are less than 3 lenses??? (24-70,28-70,35,55). Yes, it is impossible.
