On article 6 things iPhone photographers want from Apple (66 comments in total)

Anytime i read about more megapixels I get a nosebleed.
Seems I just manage to absorb the idea that more is not better and then...the cold war on this issue heats up for smart phones.

Take a fully charged smart phone camera indoors...say a kid's birthday for example. Shoot 25-flash, 25- no flash pictures, doesn't matter and see how many a blury and how much battery life is left. Build a rating system on these numbers and maybe i will have a chance of understanding which camera is better....

Trendy?
That sounds vaguely condescending. I hope they sell dozens of these.

Great images though everything like this seems to be an homage to Ansel Adams. Any time I tinker with B&W I feel like I am just riding along on his shoulders.

LOL.
I can think of a dozen reasons why this is ill advised.

No ... it's even worse than that. Get a proper housing or buy a dedicated water camera.

Wow. That is really depressing.

In reply to:

David zzzzzzzzzz: Buyer beware, this model will be replaced by another in 12 months. Sony has a way of making something "new" obsolete in no time at all.

That only matters if you succumb to peer pressure or have a OCD condition that forces you to make needless upgrade purchases.

$400...with a lens. Amazing. I can't wait for the deep review.

I still don't get how they settle on such high MP counts for little devices. I am still waiting for a watch that is cooler than the old Timex data watch. Yeah, that one where you held it up to your computer screen to sync it.

In reply to:

Absolutic: these honestly look very poor. Looks like noise reduction is eating the details like there is no tomorrow on these, I assume all Jpegs. I will reserve my judgement til I see Raw files, but Panasonic once again proves that its jpeg engine truly sucks. Just check out Olympus OMD or Fuji XE1 jpegs for a change

I agree with Hamilton as well. That 12,800 shot is very impressive.

For me the test of a good system is what happens when you go indoors and this unit gets it done really well.

InTheMist: Not photography related exactly, but NFL fans like me rejoice!

There is, no more important photography issue than football.

On article Camera shipments continue to fall (133 comments in total)

I think the non-enthusiast market is sticking completely with their smart phones. They are willing to mash and smash away with whatever their Samsung/iPhone gives them and spank it up on Facebook.

At our last family reunion, out of 50 people, I was the only one using a DSLR and only one other person was shooting with a P&S. Everyone else...smart phone.

With few exceptions, their photography is breathtakingly bad - and none of them really care. The moment was captured...guddenough....

Makes me sad really.

DaytonR: Is it me or are these Panasonic GX cameras getting uglier with each incarnation ..... :)

I think it looks great.

gftphoto: I think I may have finally found my travel camera!

I have to say I was thinking the same thing. Was saving up for the X100s but this warrants a close look. Really looking forward to more reviews.

On article Fujifilm X100S Review (492 comments in total)
In reply to:

David Hardaway: I just reviewed the sample images that Barney took with the original x100. Night and day difference. The x100 images are very good and with good color and detail. X100s is clearly not an award winning camera so why is the dpreview gold being awarded to a jpg snapshot camera that is grossly overpriced?

Ease off the throttle Davey-boy. Take a card to your favorite camera shop, shoot a bit at the counter and then take it home and play with the images. I was not optimistic either until i did this.

The camera is really beautiful, the AF changes fixed all the things I hated about the X100 and it take a great photo. Saving up for one as I write this.

That riveted chunk of wood is just breathtakingly bad.
