Mark B UK: I would like to see someone, ideally Olympus, launch a tough compact that shoots RAW files. How hard can it be?
Nikon 1 AW1?
I guess HD means 4K video?
Peiasdf: RX100 / RX100 II is just too much camera in such small size that it renders small mirrorless / EVIL camera like GM1 and Pantax Q pointless. Unless the intent is to use 20 f/1.7 or 17 f/1.8 with the GM1, everyone is better served by a RX.
Problem with the RX100 is that you only get f1.8 at the wide end. Also I find the image stabilization to not be as effective as Panasonic's OIS.
Canada only gets the black one. I want the orange model. Please Panasonic...make it available here.
Why are people saying it's $10 for life?
Read the FAQ: "When you purchase directly from Adobe, the cost of an annual membership will not go up during the first 12 months of your membership. It is possible that the cost of the month-to-month membership will increase, but if it does, you will be notified and given the opportunity to cancel."
Terms:"After the first 12 months, we will automatically renew your contract based on the current price of the offering."
Current price of the offering would mean if they upped the price to $25 a month, then that's the current price of the offering.
This might explain all these mysterious phone calls telling me I've won a cruise...
Robert Eckerlin: For experts, this is probably a silly question. But for me it is an important question.
If comparing the image quality (including colors, contrast and dynamic range) - of the Olympus Stylus 1 and - of of my NIKON D5000 (or of a D5300) with my AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200 mm 1:3,5-5,6G ED VR II Lensewill there be big differences? I ask the question because the Olympus Stylus 1 is substantially lighter than the combination of my Nikon Camera and my lense ... at my age, this makes a difference.
Notice, that I nearly never print my photos - just displaying them on my PC Monitor and on the TV Monitor.
Depends if you like to shoot a lot of low light photos. For that the Nikon will beat the Stylus 1. If you shoot mostly daylight, the difference would not be that big.
tkbslc: You guys know this is really f4.9 on Medium format, right?
>what does cropping mean, other than cropping off light?
Yes. But the lens is being used on a crop sensor...not a FF sensor. So if a m43 camera with a f1.4 lens and a FF camera with a f1.4 lens were point at the same subject the sensors in each camera would see the level of brightness on the subject.
Does crop factor really affect light gathering? I mean I can see it affect DoF and obviously FoV, but light gathering? I'd think that if you put a light meter behind the PL 25mm f1.4 and a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 pointed at the same light source, you'd get the same reading.
Kwick1: I honestly don't get it - why make a new camera that's almost as big as a DSLR, and then put SLOW, expensive lenses in front of it? The weakness of the NEX line has always been the lenses, and it would appear that this continues with the FE line. Why would anyone buy this when you could get much faster lenses, with great quality, for half the price?
The A7 is smaller than the E-M1 and is nearly the same size as the E-M5. That's pretty amazing considering it houses a FF sensor. I agree the lenses are expensive though.
babalu: Samsung has just outwitted this gadget with their latest "Galaxy Gear" smartwatch .
They squeezed a 18MP 10X optical zoom camera into a watch?! This I gotta see!
Whether these cameras will be come successful remains to be seen. There are cameras out there that have wifi and NFC and have iOS/Android apps for them. Most notably, the Canon Powershot N, which is pretty small. I'm afraid that these lens cameras would most likely be used by...."creepy" people to take photos of other people without them noticing since it doesn't look like a camera. Other uses I can think of...health inspectors, law enforcement, house inspectors because the lens is small enough to get into really cramped places. Someone will need to come out with a stick mount or a flexible goose neck type mount for it.
marcel smit: Totally waste of time and money if you ask me imho.For that money en size you better spent your money on a decent compact camera.
How many compact cameras have the ability to post photos to social websites via cellular network?
Canon = Toyota. Stick with safe boring albeit reliable products.
I'm impressed wit the high ISO shots. Panasonic wasn't kidding about the improvements to their sensor. If Olympus wasn't coming out with something next month, I'd jump on the GX7. But I'll be patient and wait. If the cost really is 1500 Euro for the new OM-D, the GX7 will be my choice.
backayonder: Photographers are very quick to snap
The IQ seems to be worse than the TX10 in the comparison tool. The higher the ISO, the worse it gets.
This should sell quite well for Panasonic. The average consumer will be wowed by the 60X zoom, the $399 price and the convenience of not having to change lenses.
To those sticking with LR4, what will happen when Adobe releases updates to LR5 that enable it to handle RAW files from new cameras?
photo perzon: Prices of m4/3 are now twice of DSLRs such as Nikon D3100, 5100 and three times high performance compacts such as the LX7. Then their lenses are also $ 1,000 easy.
You're comparing the price of a flagship model to the base models of another manufacturer?
