acinod: So I've been tossing up between the RX100 IV and LX100 for a while.
I'm planning to take one on my Japan trip where I will be carrying it in my coat pocket (both cameras can fit in fine). I'm also new to photography but I'm willing to learn; I think the manual adjustments in the LX100 will be helpful for learning.
Here in Australia, the LX100 is $800 while the RX100 IV is $1200.
Due to pricing, a large sensor and size not being a concern, the LX100 seems like the superior choice. However, this review has made me start considering the RX100 IV again.
Should I get the LX100 or Rx100 IV?
Is the 1" sensor better suited to 20mp than the bigger MFT sensors? Except GX8, all MTS sensors have maximum 16MP. The sensor of RX100 mk1 was not even back-illuminated.
3 years (since FZ200) and no "evolution" in slow-motion: still 120fps in 720p. Wow!
Extremely confusing "review". At page 1 we can read that 1080p has 120fps. Page 4 says 120fps is only in 720p……what is this??
Androole: I'm interested to see the 120fps footage, since it'll be much better quality.
The 960 fps is super impressive, but the quality is not really usable for larger than a phone screen (or Youtube videos, I guess). Maybe for scientific applications on a low budget, where the aesthetic quality isn't as important. Or heavily filtered, perhaps?
Good luck with the wait of 120fps in 1080p. It gets hardly a note from any reviewer anywhere…..incredible!
Zoran Krnjajic: This civilisation is seriously sick and deserves nothing but to be distroyed!
Mother Earth could not be more happy if that happens.
Couscousdelight: How to make a best seller camera in 8 lessons :
Use a small and dull viewfinder.A plastic body.A sensor who lack behind competition in almost every aspect...Forget about internal AF adust, even if the camera is prone to it.Use the famous Canon ergonomy aka "who need a second control dial ?" with a stupid thumb wheel placed too low.Implant Auto-iso without exposure compensation, i mean, who need that ?USB2 transfert for24mpxl, in 2015 : a must-have.
And the maximum 30fps in 1080p is a formula that has a 5 years tradition, I feel almost nostalgic.
Elaka Farmor: 60fps in 1080p is a welcome feature……well done Canon!
2010: 550D 1080p 30fps2015: 750D 1080p 30fps
What an extraordinary development……..hahahahaha!
60fps in 1080p is a welcome feature……well done Canon!
No 1080p 120fps for slow mo…..? (like Gopro and NX1)
chillgreg: Only 1 2000mm sample??? Of a mountain with no fine detail? That's the headline feature! What's up with that @Dan?
The duck-photo was all I waited for, thanks! : http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/reviewsamples/photos/3198631/dan-00_iso-200_2000mm?inalbum=nikon-p900-samples-gallery
Exactly my thought.
With a $2500 price tag it should outclass GH4 and NX1. Good luck with that…..
Stephen McDonald: The "1/1.7-inch" sensor isn't much larger than those in most superzoom models, but yet this one gives only a 300mm reach. They should have either given it more lens power or an even larger sensor size, to have an appeal to different segments of its potential buyers. It also doesn't have 60p video and at a $700. price, I don't think it will sell very well.
The Panasonic FZ1000 costs only $200. more and has a "1-inch" sensor and 400mm of reach, 60p video and 4K.
Beats the G16? Maybe, but not in image quality (if you ask me): https://s3.amazonaws.com/masters.galleries.dpreview.com/2736132.jpg?X-Amz-Expires=3600&X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Credential=AKIAIWXD4UV3FXMIDQLQ/20150413/us-east-1/s3/aws4_request&X-Amz-Date=20150413T093610Z&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=host&X-Amz-Signature=58bbbbb72f43da2ab5f159e3535cd4bb8a8b2aa71dbad259b9ba96b4a0f9c205
Nikons response: "Thank you very much for your idea!" means in reality that "Yes, customers have told us this before, but we don't care"
Elaka Farmor: I´m not sure if I´m blind or not, but I was interested to read about the 120fps video quality in 1080p and how to extract photos from 4K videos. Not a word! What is this?
And that's the point. To even find out IF it has 120fps in 1080p I need to search beyond this review…….

120 fps at 1280 x 720……. LX7 did the same back in 2012….
The Squire: "At some point 8K will come for that reason...."
Around about the time Canon launch their first 4k model?
That would be very early to be Canon, but time will tell ;-)
Roman Korcek: "Canon offered a maximum pixel count of ~22MP for seven years before the launch of the EOS 5DS and 5DS R. Why did it take that long to increase resolution?
I wasn't actually aware that it had been seven years!"
This guy really cares about his company and its products.
Who cares about the the same 22mp during seven years when the dynamic range has been improved so much :-D
Probably yes….around 2017.
