  • I wouldn't bid on a high ticket item on ebay unless the seller were high rated and made plenty of sales to date. I purchased two brand new lenses for significantly less than their market price that...
  • Right, the X-T1 comes with a pretty large improvement in continuous shooting. It will be a better suited camera for action shooting, which the E-X2 kinda lacked. We'll see how it actually fares...
  • Going with a X-E1 instead of a X-E2 could be a wise decision. Image quality is pretty much the same, so it comes down to whether you want to spend the extra dollars on the additional features, such...
  • The X-T1 looks fantastic. It’s a major shot across the bow of Olympus and their OMD line. As the owner of an X-E2 and a number of XF primes I can’t wait to get my hands on the X-T1. Fuji is...
  • A smaller body is what I'd like to see. Canon doesn't have a similar-sized competitor to the likes of Fuji X20, Ricoh GR, Nikon Coolpix A etc. The trend seems to be to pack a lot of power and...
  • The trend runs increasingly stronger toward compacts that pack lots of power, and it's a trend that seems to be continuing full steam ahead. The X20 is one of the important players in the field and...

  • Here's a good tutorial on all these factors, it's one of the best explained that I was able to find. Just so everybody who cares to read and apply themselves can get a grip on the discussion...
  • Commented on DSCN6749 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    This is a great camera in good light conditions, but as expected the image gets pretty grainy with dimmer light. ISO 800 results in quite large grains. Definitely not for a pixel peeper :)

  • If you want a truly pocketable camera, why not go for the S120? Image quality is good, giving more realistic colors than more expensive cameras like the Sony RX100 (II). If a little heavier camera...
  • The Sony may have a large sensor but the entry level lens is crappy. With the X20, you get a much better tradeoff. The lens performs very well at any distance plus superb macro. IQ is consistently...
  • Like so many mentioned already, the larger sensor of the XS1 is a win, and coupled with the current prices, it gets as close to a steal as it can. I'd say totally go for it. But if you can go into...
  • There was a thread here by Nathan Elson up in Canada, telling about his latest fashion shoot where he used an X-E2. Beautiful model and images! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3610530
  • There's a good amount of subjectivity when judging prints at various sizes. You can easily make a great billboard print from a low level point and shoot camera and it will look outstanding from the...
  • Here's a roundup of the features you get in the XE2 vs the XE1. Af speed in good light is noticeably faster Split image and focus peaking set the new standard for manual focus aid, especially the...
  • I use a Fuji X Pro camera and there is no doubting the quality of their lenses. The X 20 uses the same type of sensor albeit smaller which has an effect on quality but it is still rated. One word...
  • The RX100 may have a lighter lens, but remember that the RX10 has the EXMOR R sensor which (at least in theory) should compensate for the lower f number. I actually had a look at the studio...
