  • Is there a subject, “The usage modes of samples galleries?” I have used them to understand optical abberrations, color palette, noise floors, tone curves, dynamic range and the like. I thought of a...

  • The market is taking a cooling on the high end and a freeze on the bottom, with the middle gaining well-earned heat. Nobody is saying that Nikon needs to diversify. When you play to a shrinking...

  • Perhaps you are right. If you've got a deep ISO rig, 800 ISO might be a great trade-off for all those pixels. Hmm... I guess it depends where you print or present. There is plenty to admire on the...

  • Sensor size is a determinant in poor light. Good light levels the playing field.

  • That is true. 4 x 6 is most wide, 1.5x. 9 x 13, 1.44x,5 x 7, 1.4x, 3 x 4, 1.33x. 8 x 10, 1.25x, etc. The Pentax medium format is 3 x 4. I am not sure I care whether the top, or side gets cropped on...

  • Too much noise when? In broad daylight? In average light? Under a starry sky? It's not a constant.

  • In my silly opinion, who cares, the question is somewhat spare. It makes more sense if you ask, what size sensor would you consider as a minimum for an enthusiast’s only camera, his second camera,...

  • Once you ask the right kind of camera question, you discover the varieties of rationale to spend. It begins innocently. The financial limit defines “all” and “end” in a curious way. It puts an...

  • Indeed. Once you ask the right kind of camera question, you discover the varieties of rationale to spend. It begins innocently. The financial limit defines “all” and “end” in a curious way. It puts...

  • Created questions Second Cameras
    The poll question reads " With good enough image quality, would you consider a built-in lens camera as your only camera?" I am not at all surprised by the favorite response or the wide margin " No ...
  • The more I think about it, the more ridiculous the question becomes. Why buy an LX100 when you can have a GX7? An apple or orange, it rests on a questionable assumption, on purpose perhaps, that...

  • Part of what Nikon "sells" is an idea of where THEY want everybody to go in order to steal the cash. Promoting full frame in a mainstream sense is an attempt to control the market rather than...

  • I think this discussion is worn out. NOBODY expects the LX100 glass to match the optical performance of any interchangeable lens. Since we are messing with a FourThirds sensor, wouldn't it be nice...

  • Yup. The thing attractive to me about your Fuji (I have had three) is the outstanding ISO performance. At 6400, it is not so far off full frame. Even though it makes everybody wonder if a tiny bit...

  • I don't think there will be any fight or comparison. The Fuji cameras are strong for their own reasons in a category that tolerates LARGE APS-C lenses. That is not to say big is bad. I have plenty...

  • The Fuji's with the giant lenses? Different category. I love those cameras too.

  • The LX-100 would be a very good camera with the same feature set on a 1-inch sensor. Many of us are wishing for a 12-megapixel 1-incher because 3200 ISO is useful, much more often than you might...

  • I agree. Most folk do not print very often, even at 4 x 6, let alone at any size to hang on the wall. In the $800 vicinity, there are two angles to consider, same as usual, the best output or...
