On Adobe admits using 'synthetic blur' image in deblur demo news story (97 comments in total)

It is pretty hard not to be a little suspicious of the technology when they tell you we faked some of the results. Try and imagine me posting some of my Canon A620 photos here and then later telling everyone that 'some' were taken with a Leica M9.

OK, iso 3200 is out of the question.

What an amazingly great way to let the world know that your engineers have completely run out of ideas.

In terms of size, this is so close to that of a DSLR, one has to wonder why you would want this? The x100, x10 makes sense to me but I don't get this.

desmes: If it could only be 6 or 8MP ...

Aye, and if my Grandma had wheels, she'd be a wagon. Sorry, (nearly) no one wants a 6 mp camera any more.

John Gruffydd: It would have been useful to see some high ISO shots here.

I agree entirely. If you are going to take one of these new beasties out of a run, you need to stress them out. I can get all the brochure photos and hyperbole any where.

Marcelobtp: One thing that hurts so much about this camera is How nikon could do a camera that ugly?

I love the look of the camera. My only complaint is the tiny sensor. Drop an APC-C in that body and I would have one asap.

I was really hoping for n x100 type camera that didn't give me nose-bleeds. This just doesn't seem to be an answer to anything.

I really wish they would have combined the features. Sorting through the J1/V1 list makes me think I need to keep looking else where. Maybe the X10 is more in line with what i want.

Yikes! I am sure the Sony peeps are popping corks right now.

I still live in a fantasy world where Nikon will some day make a retrofit 24 MP sensor back for my F3Hp. Still the best camera I have ever owned.

On Pentax Q preview (279 comments in total)

At $350-$400 this would be a maybe. At $800, this will definitely not be considered.

On Fujifilm announces X10 high-end enthusiast compact news story (279 comments in total)

I too was considering the P7100/G12 but this camera is much closer to what I am looking for. All I need now is some reviews of the high ISO quality and the autofocus dependability. Thank goodness Fuji is paying attention to users wanting a viewfinder. I am 100% fine with an 85% OVF even if there is no overlay.

I can't wait to see some real samples of this bad boy. Looks like Sony has been paying attention.

I would really like to see some low-light, high ISO stuff. Thanks for the update.

On Sony NEX-7 high-end APS-C mirrorless camera first look news story (355 comments in total)
In reply to:

tkbslc: Oh Sony, why are your lenses so big. You finally make a near perfect compact body with an APS-C sensor AND viewfinder and you only have one compact lens for the whole system (and it isn't that good).

It makes me wonder how Fuji was able to get such a small form factor with the x100 lens, and if Sony can create a slim lens. I really think Sony may have something here and am looking forward to seeing how it performs at high ISO.

On Sony NEX-7 high-end APS-C mirrorless camera first look news story (355 comments in total)

Not sure what performance will be like but the only way I would want to handle that camera would be with a small pancake sized lens on the front. When you take a small form factor like that and add 4-5 inches of glass on the front, you have a recipe for carpal tunnel problems.

On Preview:nikonp7100 (108 comments in total)

I agree with D.Spreen's comments.
Any camera without a viewfinder of some kind is completely off my shopping list. I would have liked to have seen Nikon take the 7100 and dropped in an APS-C sensor. In spite of the specifications, most of these small sensor cameras become unusable (IMO) above ISO 800. As for the looks of the camera, I have no issues at all. Like the G12, I expect this would feel very good in the hands.

On Lytro's Ren Ng sheds some light on the company's ambitions news story (116 comments in total)

Every time I try to understand what these folks are doing my eyes glaze over. I have a pretty strong technical/physics background but reading comments by the Lytro folks makes me feel like I slept through too many classes. I keep expecting someone to pull back the curtains and shout "Hey, they are shooting everything at f30 and then messing about with gaussian blurs!".
