On Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 camera review post (196 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jostian: wow the low light abilities are really bad, just about every single other high end device hammers the CM1 in the low light scene, very disappointing... In daylight the CM1 results look awesome, but the lack of OIS and horrid low light results means the CM1 is another 'almost' great package, pity.

sorry Lars, I missed the whole iso dropdown, so while the CM1 was on 3200 the others were on 50/125 etc. apologies, my fault.

The flash results are poor though imho.

On Sony launches Z3+ with 20MP camera post (35 comments in total)

Wonder if Sony will ever get image processing right... great sensors but horrid processing sees Sony Phone Cams languish behind the competition.

RichRMA: My goodness! Worrying about different sensors when absolutely none of them are capable of producing top-notch images.

your'e entitled to your opinion I guess but I haven't seen many camera-phones with that level of detail... especially from flash shots. No apology necessary :)

Joe Ogiba: 99.99% of consumer don't care if the S6 comes with a Sony or Samsung sensor just like other components just as long as it has the same specs (size, mp etc).

absolutely!

Nindy: Samsung phones, tech student grade software design, over saturated colors, hardware that breaks down after 1 year of use.
Call me an apple fan boy, I don't care, the usual diehard obsessed Samsung trolls are on here.

mmm... your ignorance and stupidity actually comes out really well in your post... so over the last 3 years when no iPhone has been voted as the best smartphone on the top techsites, you mean they all had it wrong?? but you enjoy your iPhone, cos its all you know, its ok...

On Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera review post (88 comments in total)

My Note 4 is pretty decent in low light, no worse than any other current cameraphone.

Jostian: no built in flash... on an APS-C sensor camera, that' plain stupid! nothing special, just incremental improvements, disappointing actually!

to each his own, but when I played with the K-3 there was nothing about it that made me want to dump my Canon.

To each his own yes, but to me, not having a flash on an APS-C body detracts from the package's overall value proposition. Put it this way this model offers nothing to temp Canon and Nikon camera owners away, but yes for Pentax users its nice to get a new model with some funky new features.

wootpile: Cudos to Pentax/ Ricoh for delivering good tech with a mount that has so many beutiful lenses (including legacy). But...

Where is the flipscreen? & too darn heavy. Shave off 200 grams on next release please.

But without something as basic as a flash... good tech yes, but functionally deficient!

yes but its nothing special, its gimmicky, 24MP is enough, and only usable on completely static objects, not having a flash on a APS-C camera is not gimmicky its a functional issue and to leave it out is stupid I don't care how many gimmicky features they add...

In reply to:

Jostian: no EVF........

Its not a competition FDW... and if I count the likes for other comments that have raised the EVF issue its over 20... and that's EXACTLY my point, which you continue to miss, EVFs are getting more consideration these days than in the past!!!!!!! I never said EVFs are THE main selling point or feature, please come back to reality we miss you here.

clearly not the one you're in... just look at this comments section, I count 6 other comments related to the lack of EVF and/or other cameras of similar or smaller size that offer EVF, so yes, that universe to be exact!

no its what you said, no summary needed :) yes their are many people that DON'T need a VF, but given the choice (these days) I'm sure they'd prefer a camera with one... that's all I'm saying. Fact is that having a VF is becoming more of a consideration than it was 5 years ago.

you were saying that just cos its always been that way that its ok, "millions of people have been using cameras without viewfinders for years already", all I said was the opposite, that the status quo doesn't negate progress (new features and/or their usefulness/demand), irrespective of the J or V line. and yes, if that is fine for you (not to have the EVF) that's fine, we each have our own opinion. I'm sure you'll enjoy the camera, I just prefer EVFs.

Jostian: no EVF........

not about need, about want...would you go for an 8 Megapixel DSLR of 10 years ago or a 24MP one of now, exactly, just cos its been that way for years doent make it 'still ideal' for now. EVFs are around now so most people would like them on their camera's (given the option of a camera with an EVF or without 9 out of 10 people will take the EVF), the Fuji X30 being a prime example of even a P&S with a great EVF. Things change, and as technology evolves cameras need to adapt too, something being acceptable 5 or 10 years ago doesn't make it so now!

it hasn't but it should... in bright light a screen is useless, unless a camera is a P&S (and even some of those have EVFs) it should have an EVF, just practical.
