In reply to:

lem12: Too many features for too small of a sensor. Fix it with 1/1.7 sensor and I'll buy it.

Full frame? It's medium format or bust—otherwise the image quality is no different than diving with an etch-a-sketch IMHO.

nathondetroit: Is overheating during video a concern for these cameras anymore? I remember the NEX-7 flagship had some issues, but I haven't used the newer APS-C Sonys for video yet.

Awesome, good to know!

Well that escalated quickly...

Shame on Canon for not innovating in the entry level market. The G1X (I &II) just recycle 5-year old 7D sensor technology, and the G7X's best attribute is the 1" Sony sensor that rivals APS-C anyway. What a mess.

HeyItsJoel: Are there people who still shoot at 28mm? Maybe it's just me but I prefer to choose between a 24mm and 35mm in that focal range.

When I shot Nikon, I hated that the lenses would start at '18 - XX mm' which translate to '27 - XX mm' in full frame equivalent. It just wasn't wide enough for me.

Are there people who still play music on the Viola? I usually play the Cello or Violin in that sonic range.

In a world of predictable mediocrity, these guys have always delivered perfectly laughable surprises. Thanks for the good times.

This is everything the Canon G12 should have been.

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

Props to you Panasonic!

2010 me is getting really excited.

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 article Sony drops list price of Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 (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.

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.

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.
