  • I have long been a fan of these 1:1.6 class cameras. I like to classify them as the 2/3 group. When my DSLR was stolen, the only camera I had for 18 months was an Olympus XZ-1, which I bought after...

  • Your point is correct. In a sense it is six to one half-a-dozen to the other in the situation noted and many others too. There are a minority of situations where the bigger sensor with faster and...

  • The car analogy feels good to me. Are we a class of gizmo freaks? Cars one day, cameras the next? I also agree that the Nikon 1 is the best for sports photography of the one-inch category, although...

  • You know what I wish for, seeing as I have printed hundreds of pictures, with great results, on one Epson 6-color or another in the last five years? I would actually like two Epson printers. One...

  • Camera comparisons are often apples and oranges, which is to say, there are always trade-offs. The companion to the axiom is, the trade-offs you like best are not usually available for a song and...

  • Ouch. I had higher hopes for the ISO range, that the noise reduction fall-off would be gentle out to 1200 ISO, but no. It appears you get one stop only over 1:1.6 and two stops less than top of the...

  • A great article! I hope it eliminates some confusion. It handles the apples and oranges idea of "equivalence" very well. From a semiconductor manufacturer's point of view, a bit of detail can be...

  • The Nikkor 80-400mm FX zooms are $1850 and $2700 WITHOUT the camera. The new 18-300mm DX zoom is not eligible for comparison here because the long end is f6.3. The older version is $900, Although...

  • The previous batch of "serious" bridge cameras had 5/8 to 2/3 inch sensors (1:1.7 or 1:1.6). A few of them also had fast lenses, f1.8 to f2.5 on the Zuiko-baked versions, for example; so the fast...

  • Noise, damn noise. Go to DpReview's noise page on RX100-II and have a look. In the raw section choose two other cameras with Sony sensors, OM-D E-M5, Nikon D5100, and a column for the 12-megapixel...

  • The ongoing camera story stays interesting precisely because photographic performance and size remain in conflict. The fast glass recipe on intermediate size sensors is a good one. The cost is...

  • I think my initial enthusiasm for this new one-inch camera was very high. I always feel great about fast lenses because they allow you to step away from ISO settings that require heavy noise...

  • One of the interesting things this camera does in the market is the revelation that over-dependence on categories clouds some important issues. This Sony camera is not a DSLR nor does it have...

  • Commented on Olympus PEN E-P5 Review preview

    Does anybody remember Kodachrome 25? It was a very slow film that, given a decent camera, produced smooth, sharp slides, with great dynamic range. That's ISO 25 folks. The reason we all craved fast...

  • Commented on Olympus PEN E-P5 Review preview

    It would be nice if ratings were totally objective, yes. Even when a consistent attempt is made for objectivity, small mistakes are made because there is a need for subtle snobbery felt as a means...

  • See math above, gmke...

  • Earthquake. Bye, bye, Canon GX1-MK-II. Faster glass, better sensor, All of a sudden, the fast glass, 2/3 sensor cameras are irrelevant too, except that they cost quite a bit less. Sony, premiere...
