On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1861 comments in total)
In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: Can someone give me a TLDR on how this compares to the sony A6000. Yeah I know the bodies don't compare for handling and EVF versus OVF but based on sheer rubber meets the road shooting specs?

I'm doing a quick snapsort and according to the (often prone to errors) spec list the A6000 has more AF points, faster burst speed and a larger viewfinder while the 7D Mk 2 is weather sealed, has a better lens selection an external mike input and ?????

Thanks!

What's cool about Dr_Jon's comment is that this is probably the last point in history where DSLRs will dominate over mirrorless. When these cameras are updated in 18 months, It will probably be an even match.

This is everything the Canon G12 should have been.

Why did it so long for "enthusiast compacts" to get here?

Props to you Panasonic!

On Fujifilm updates X-mount lens roadmap to end of 2015 article (171 comments in total)

I think Fuji picked the perfect sensor size to future-proof the system. In the same way that great glass makes MFT get APSC results, Fuji's lenses clearly land them in Full Frame territory. As cameras get smaller and faster, these lenses will last the test of time.

On Sony drops list price of Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 article (201 comments in total)

$1300 was a bargain. Not one that fitted my needs, but definitely a solid value. Rather than bash sony, how about we send them some love letters for redefining several product categories?

In reply to:

maximusgeekus: What an excellent concept. Imagine a slim digital back that you could attach to your Nikon F3 (or Canon F1) that would transmit images shot to an ipad/iphone over wireless for chimping / editing and allow you to set digital parameters from the ipad too. Superbly designed and built cameras coupled to modern technology. It would be nice to think that a manufacturer was working on this concept... Sigma perhaps with a full frame X3 Foveon? Ooh, is that coffee I smell :)

Because it would be such a limited novelty, Canon or Nikon should just make a special edition product for $10,000 and sell them to collectors. If people end up using them in the field, maybe that would encourage a larger-scale release.

I wonder if Fuji will make some tiny Summicron-like f/2 primes. The 18mm is usable, but a 23mm or 35mm lens with an aperture ring (unlike the 27) would accent a slower zoom like this perfect. Right now its just X100s or bust.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2970 comments in total)

I'm really depressed right now. The Nikon DF also reached 2000 comments, I thought this would be the camera to reach 3000...

There's only one thing we love more than photography: using camera companies as punching bags.

In reply to:

kodachromeguy: This announcement sure generated a lot of excitement. What about the RX1? It seems to have dropped off - I rarely see any comments about it now. Is it from the Sigma DP merrills achieving similar quality results for a lot lower price?

I was wondering the same thing... Because right now the best Lens for the A7 is still glued to the RX1.

Calibrate your screens, polish your monocles, and pour a nice glass of brandy. My friends, this is the pixel peeper’s delight.

On Lytro Illum in the hands of five leading photographers article (166 comments in total)

I think the word here is software. If Apple and Google natively supported these images, (And feature light-field cameras once they're small enough), then yes these images would be way more enjoyable and useful than what we use now. Nobody could disagree with that. But to get there we have to buy products that aren't immediately life-changing.

When I look at my Canon G10, I appreciate that durable brick for all that it is. Its been many places and is capable of high-resolution, powerful images. So when I see this sneaky little bugger, I can't help but wish that they had a chubbier version with practical go-anywhere battery life.

In reply to:

dmanthree: I think this will be Leica's most successful camera, *if* they support it with decent glass and the AF is quick. They can start with a simple cam, like this one, and expand the system, like Panny has done with m4/3, to bodies with integrated EVFs. First Leica system with the potential to truly embrace digital and grow.

Agreed. Good glass can be quite persuasive—Without the 35mm 1.4, the X-Pro1 would have struggled a lot more than it did.

In reply to:

samhain: If it had a built in VF(be it ovf or evf) and some faster lenses...

All they would need to make is an X Vario body with a built in EVF. People would go nuts. Instead we get an NEX-3 with premium unstabilized lenses.

Lytro needs to team up with Sony's "Auto Portrait Framing" so I can finally take perfect photos drunk.

In reply to:

cheetah43: Sony, an RX100 with a VF - optical or electronic - replacing either the flash or having slightly larger body would wipe everything else off the market.

@rpm40

I agree that the RX10 was overkill. Admittedly, I would much rather buy that camera than spending $1300 a la carte on other 24-200mm camera/lens options.

If Sony could distill that value down into a shorter zoom and rangefinder ergonomics, they would wipe the enthusiast market clean.
