Let's just wish new one is better than Aperture.
AndreSJ: NX mini, GM1, RX100III and soon the LX8 finally a selection of high quality REAL pocket cameras. There is no such thing as the perfect camera but its great that you can chose a camera that suits your needs.
Me personally it will be the NXmini with the 45mm 1.8 when its released. Im young and yes i do take the occasional selfie but i would like a great street and portrait lens hence i'm looking at the 45mm 1.8.
Is there any other pocket camera i should look at?? p.s im on a budget haha and i already own a Fuji X-E1 nothing that size
What is NX mini? I have never heard of it.
Does anyone still choose DSLR over this at this price point?
km25: Leica needs to think long and hard, is this camera really worth $7-8k. Can we make it cheaper. If Leica got rid of the expensive RF system, replaced it with AF. The cameras would still be made in Germay. Lens ground in Germany and assemble in Japan. The costs would be a lot lower. The camera $3-4k. Lens would be less then $3k. The new APS-C Leica is a start. Leica needs to jump in with both feet. In the days of film, buying a camera that last you a "life time" maybe an investment. But with digital and changing technology. What is todays marvel is tomorrows doorstop.
Considering much more niche camera like Pentax 645D, which comes with much more expensive medium format sensor selling for $6000, I have to say Leica's price can't be explained with niche-ness.
I'm very impressed with his consistent and confident attitude in all the situation.
Apple will by this patent?
Although the popup finder is still the Sony's typical gimmicky feature, but overall. this camera would be the best digital P&S ever made.
BTW, what happened to Panasonic LX?
Gesture: Beautiful camera. Excellent sensor. Great focus accuracy. World-class ergonomics. AND a great kit focal length.
It is called stealth marketing.
love_them_all: So everything that is not OOC JPEG is potentially altered? I thought this service can detect if an image is a composite of several images or if the model in the photo has been altered to look slimmer or something like that.
They think in camera processing such as Toy camera effect is real, but LR white balanced file is fake, if I don't misunderstand about this service.
Is this thing against RAW file format?
I checked the series at the original site, and I also find they are far from interesting, except only a few exceptions. This is the most boring photo competition result I have ever seen, sorry...
Please don't call me ignorant. I learned photography and contemporary art at college, so I believe I know photography a little more than average people here.
It seems like rather minor update for SONY, but it's much better than adding countless useless marketing gimmick sometimes Sony have done to their cameras. Good job.
Please cut the body to check if it is not made of plastic.
The shooting experience review is very personal. It's ok being personal and should be personal, but... I'm sorry but I have to say I can't really trust a personal review from someone who can publish those pictures as a part of his experience with this camera.
asp1880: "The viewfinder now operates at 200Hz, meaning a lag of just 0.005 seconds." This is not necessarily correct. The lag can be anything and is not directly related to the frequency, as the quote implies.
XT-1 EVF is very fast.
rhZhao: I think Leica should focus on making good product instead of make the production process looks good.
Because everything inside the camera is made by Japanese. Only thing they did is the enclosure and color calibration.
mauijohn: Overall this smartphone is a lot better than my Canon S100 to carry in my pocket without worrying the lense got stuck with "lense error" message on lcd. Plus the zoom is double on this phone.
Yep. the question is how long this thing last.
Epkappa: If I say that i prefer, honestly, the images before the calibration? The calibrated one looks too neon for me..
I posted the same question. I prefer BEFORE.
Am I the only one who prefer the color of before calibration?
