Hoping against hope that the firmware updates in the 1s will be available to the original Stylus 1 - a great camera! 99% of shooters don't need 1" sensors.
Tord S Eriksson: This camera is a clone of the XZ-1/XZ-2 and the MX-1, as they use exactly the same lens and very similar sensor type. Evidently an OEM supplies the optics and the focusing mechanism, while the brand name makes the outer casing and add their own, tweaked, firmware (possibly the electronics, too, but the similarities are scarily similar).
The two that stand out, is the X30, with built-in viewfinder, and the MX-1 with none (not even a external, mechanical/optical, option, as the X10 has)! They are also the two heaviest, by the way:
re: "But why does Fuji bother with cameras with so small sensors?!"Because not everyone needs a huge sensor and the 2/3rds sensor is quite good for 99% of the buyers. I would surmise that most X30 users rarely even make a print.
Is there a 'silent' mode on the G7X? Also, is there an electronic level on the LCD?edit: Yes, I found that there is a level function. It can be seen in this PR video at 2:03: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bV6VRDlfVBQ&app=desktop
Several forum members have asked whether the G7X has an electronic level. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks.
Timbukto: Can't see the video yet, but given the specs I expect the Photokina model is tethered to the power cord, or they are swapping out batteries every half hour?
No video problems here.
gunkan: The price will be the key point for this camera. I don't think it can surpass the IQ of the RX100 Mark III sony sensor, but canon always compete in price.
The 100mm 2.8 in 1" and that size it's just impressive, but i won't trade it for 24mm IQ. To me, the 24mm to 35mm focals are far more important.
Launch price is US$ 699. Seems about right for what it offers.
daft: Does it have the Sony Sensor? Or is it a new 1" Sensor from Canon?
According to the DPReview first impressions they think it is the Sony sensor.
phazelag: Did you see the battery life? Number of shots?
And its not smaller than the Sonys?
Other than Menu familiarity what advantage does it have on the Sony?
I was interested in this, but now I its a non starter.
210 shots is a lot of images - for me. You must be a spray and pray kind of guy, eh? :)
Ian SS: What happened to the hot shoe? This is a G camera, I am disappointed.
This is NOT a G camera. It's a new series for 1" sensors. The trade-off is a larger sensor without 4K and OVF or EVF - for now.
Photos Of Our Planet: I was somewhat interested in this camera. But the 1/2000 minimum shutter speed is just too much. Since I live in Arizona I constantly would have to stop down (which reduces sharpness via diffraction) even at base ISO to not over expose. 1/4000 is a minimum these days. I don't want to carry a silly ND filter. That should be in camera or have higher shutter speeds at this point. Especially for $549.
Oops. Sorry, I thought you were talking about the G7X, which does have a 3 stop ND filter.
vesa1tahti: No specs...
Ever heard of Canon USA? :) It's all here:http://consumer.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx60_hs
steve_hoge: Need specs...like how fast is that lens on the SX60?
Google is your friend. Go to Canon USA:http://consumer.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx60_hs
Bigger iPhones? But, didn't Tim Cook two years ago tell us that the 4" iPhone was the "perfect size for one handed use?" Still, the camera looks a bit better, but the deals on the 5s will make it very attractive to first-time users.
- Glad to see that "Silent Mode" is carried over to the X30.
- Can someone explain the advantage of the "Classic Chrome" film look? The samples I've seen on the Fujifilm site don't look all that unique or different - not the Kodachrome look we had back in the day.
It's a nice evolution of the X20. Price is right and feature set is very good. But, I think DPR summed it up well on the last page as follows: "...it can't keep up with the RX100 II and G1 X II in terms of image quality."
Now, on to the rumored LX8, please.
No built-in ND filter! Even the LX-7 has one. A pity...
I found a Sony camera last fall while on a trip to New Jersey. Examining the images turned up the initials on a youngster's soccer jersey. I Googled the initials, which turned out to belong to a club in another state which had a website and Facebook page. I emailed the coaches on the website. They knew the player and owner who contacted me the same day. I sent him the camera.
The owner said he'd lain awake nights trying to remember where he'd lost the camera. It had at least 100 images on it THAT HAD NEVER BEEN COPIED TO A COMPUTER!
I was just paying someone back for the camera bag that was returned to me when I left it - full of lenses - on a busy sidewalk at a cruise terminal in Florida.
Thanks for putting up the GM1 comparison so quickly.
Does the camera have a "silent" mode, i.e., the ability to turn off all sounds and flash, say in a museum or theater.
Are there filter threads on the lens barrel?
