peevee1: Wait, "DJI Phantom"? Isn't it a flying platform for Go Pro?
They have a new model with its own camera.
The Nikon 1 V2 with 10-100 lens and one inch sensor seems to be the camera you can't find to compare the Sony with. It will also show what a hulking brute the Sony is.
Good question. We are missing something here. In a side by side comparison of features this camera with its options is little more capable than the V2, just in the speed department and hopefully sharper in the sensor department. Yet it is hundreds of dollars more expensive, larger, heavier. You can't modularize the viewfinder and the handgrip with out making it larger. To believe Nikon the whole point of the Nikon 1 was smallness of both camera and lenses. They have just thrown that out the window. And what is the deal in the US of having to buy it with a lens I already have?I agree with Reichmann that at this point in time no camera worthy of being taken seriously does not have a built in viewfinder. What Nikon should have done was to smooth out the finder hump, put it in the corner and build a smaller version of the X-E2.
Did I miss the evaluation of the LCD for seeing? Most any LCD is fine in the permanent twilight of the Pacific Northwest, but without a real viewfinder those of us in the sunnier parts of the world would like to know how useful the LCD might be. Not black in the sun like so many?
I think that if that were true you would not recognize your own pictures.
Nikon avoided the stupidity of a touch screen that does not work when wet like so many other "underwater" cameras. Now the question remains whether the LCD can produce a visible image in the bright sun or underwater. Can't wait for a test.
I can't wait to see the Microsoft ad, "Tap Dancing for Nokia".
The ice cream cone is certainly erotic. Lots of play in her photographs.
A 7 year old would look at this, sniff, and then wirelessly down load her iPod picture to the family printer on the family network.
No company I know of sells an indoor camera. The claim of the camera maker should be taken into consideration. If the finder/LCD can only be seen indoors that should disqualify the camera from consideration, any camera. If the camera which claims to be an underwater camera cannot be controlled or even an image framed in the LCD underwater it should be disqualified from consideration as an underwater camera. I don't think 2 or 3 point differences cut it in this consideration. Don't rate them as overall cameras, but as what they are marketed as: tough, outdoor, underwater cameras. How in the world can a camera with an unusable OLED as the only way to see what you are taking outdoors be rated the number one outdoor camera?
Photo Ninja is another raw converter that might be used in conjunction with an editing program.
My question is which of these programs might accept plugins designed for Photoshop. The NIK plugins also work with Aperture I believe. Does Elements take PS plugins?
Olympus has been an occasionally innovative company with interesting ideas, but has never been run well even going back to the film days when they ignored autofocus and raised their prices comparing themselves to Leica. Upgrades came in decades so seldom got reviewed. They dumped all that and went for years without product to develop their first digital SLRs. The recent announcement that they are dumping their DSLR customers formalizing the reality of the last several years is history repeating itself while a newcomer like Sony surges ahead. This is just another segment being abandoned by Olympus.
Stacey_K: I find it comical when a camera system has a slew of amazing zooms, people complain "where are the primes? All I want are prime lenses." So them a camera system comes out with a bunch of nice primes and people bitch "We want zooms" lol
What camera system do you mean? Maybe m43? This is a two system lens and just what is needed for NEX which has no amazing zooms. Complaining about people is better?
At last. A true portrait length for my NEX. Bravo, Sigma.
Why is this a mirrorless competitor? The price point is the same as the D3200 and it trades resolution and a lower specced focus system for an inconsequentially smaller body.
Deja vu, all over again.
Ex OM4T owner.
Hmm. A conceptual artist who is unclear on the concept? The form of the camera is the result of its function just like a hammer. The fora on this site are filled with discussions of function, not how lovely the little machines are, or what is the proper prayer to the little fetish. This exhibit seems to me to be an expression of contempt for photographers. No doubt the art world will clutch Arsham to their breast as a genius as they did Susan Sontag.
It seems to me that many of these pack bags sort of miss the point. I suppose there is a certain amount of esthetic pleasure to be had for all your stuff in one container, but few of their designers really think about what it is like to use them doing travel photography or on a trail for scenics or animals. One needs space to stow a jacket, cap, water, maybe a lunch, sun screen or insect repellent that will be positioned and hardened against spillage that will leak on camera or computer. If you do not need those things then you probably are not going to be out long enough to need a backpack other than as a storage device in the trunk of the car.
abdalim: Is the book suitable for the beginners?
Probably not. I bought an Evening book for an earlier version of Photoshop and it was exhausting and I did not learn very much. The approach Scott Kelby takes with his books by showing how to do the tasks that a photographer wants to do and giving you the steps to do to be much better for a beginner.
roy5051: That's a bit quick for an update, isn't it? It's only been a few months since iPad3.
It seems clear to me that they plan to revise all the iPads at the same time in the future. So it would not make sense to introduce a Mini version of an iPad that does not exist. And how unhappy would those owners of the third version be if some of the features of the bargain basement version were better than their 6 month old iPad?
