completelyrandomstuff: It will be funny when they announce a full frame Pentax in this color set.
OMG, what if it's not black?! Funny how photographers who deal in a creative art allow no creativity in their cameras.
mpgxsvcd: It is clear from this article that Dpreview does not respect Canon anymore. There were some pretty snide remarks in the article.
Welcome to how DPR looks at brands other than Canikon. How does it feel?
Every time I find a Camera I think I will like, the dreaded, "AF is very slow" comment rears it's ugly head. I am tired of slow AF. When will this be a thing of the past and not a line in most new camera reviews still in 2014?
Hey look, another m43 camera that can't af track worth a lick! Wash, rinse, repeat.
intruder61: Too many guys believe the BS hype the manufacturers are throwing at you about how good these compacts are, then when they don't perform to what you want it to, out come the guns....compacts are compacts are compacts, small sensors, nothing special, it is what it is....and here is the special, you get shafted by paying premium price....entry level DSLRs with APSC sensors for less $$ are a whole lot better value...oh yeah i forgot, the DSLRs dont fit in your back pocket while you're having coffee down at the cafe.
Neither does the LX100 fit in your pocket, which is why I don't get why people compare it to the Canon and the Sony?
Mirrorless Crusader: Nothing special; anybody could have taken those pictures if they were rich and insane enough to spend their time biking to every third world country they can find.
There's always one guy that isn't impressed by anything in these threads. If they highlighted Ansel Adam's, you probably be like, "meh, anyone can take those b&w's in that scenery. Why is there always a guy like you?
Niklas Ramstedt: Finally a sample gallery that looks like a photographer is behind it and not just some random snapshots. Great job!
Why does it matter? The pixel doesn't care what it's contributing too. Most of you are happiest with cat and brick wall pics to try and tear apart the corner sharpness on these anyway.
JPR.lda: A waist of time and of good will.
I thought it was more hip than waist.
lacikuss: The lens looks great, it has a great bokeh (flowers pic) and distortion at 24mm is acceptable considering that it can be zoomed to 100 mm. Well, I don't know how canon engineers managed to teach a lesson to sony on lens design (compared to RX 100 III) but they did.
Ultimately, That is the canikon advantage.
Oh, a fan boy fight!
Pixel peeping a p&s and complaining about the results is like whining on the Mini Cooper car forum about its towing capacity. I mean really, what do you want? And the fanboy comments in this thread are epic. I have been laughing for 10 minutes.
Stefanie: I coudn't care less. I don't rent software.
Is that an eleventh commandment or something? You're so principled.
lol. Could the reviewer brown nose a little more? Did you seriously say this,
"Sony is clearly putting a lot of effort into creating new lenses - where do you think you need to do more? "
Please find me one human being on this planet that believes Sony is 'clearly' putting in a lot of effort on the lens front?
aandeg: Not sure what others were expecting? Did they foolishly believe a company would let them personal know what it's plans for the future were? LOL
You mean like other businesses do that have stockholders? Fuji laughs at this. "It must all be top secret, even though we haven't had a new idea to steal in 5 years!"
A lot of things seem 'difficult to say'.
This sounds like a marketing packet from Canon. Is it?
jenbenn: I dont really understand why people are complaining.
For the last months I have been shooting a 5D III and a sony A7. After testing Sony's "innovative" camera I am utterly disapponted and decided to stick entirely with my 5Ds despite their higher weight. Reasons?:
1. Optical Viewfinder. If you shoot more than the casual amateur, you need an optical viewfinder. Staring through a Mini-TV- Viewfinder for hours a day is not an option, no matter how good the TV is. EVF may have an advantage in near to total darkrness but the lag of the EVF in darkness also makes you miss shots.
2. Operability. Canon handles much better and quicker. Sony takes ages to power on or zoom into a pic for checking focus.
In view of this the 7D II is another solid, camera, with specs you need to get the shot. Sure I would love a Foveson Sensor with 36 Mp and no noise up to iso 102,400. But I happily take the cam as is because I know it will let me get the shots easier than its predecessor.
You know you can ever take pictures without EVF or OVF? Yes, it's possible without jamming a camera to your face and looking through a little hole.
qianp2k: Sorry I have not even watched video. Did DPR ask CW to acknowledge it uses the same 1" Sony Exmor sensor as in RX100 III? We know it uses but it has special meaning if CW officially admitted it. Then further question is that if Canon is going to use Sony FF Exmor sensors if it unable to make such one in near future? :-)
This isn't a hard hitting investigative report to uncover the top secret sensor secrets. "If we can only get them to admit it, all will be right in the world!"
Greg Pavlov: I would really like to understand this: why the 5-6 articles about this "pocketable" camera "with a "large" sensor when during the same show Panasonic released a camera (DMC-GM5) that is smaller, has a larger sensor, includes a built-in viewfinder and accommodates multiple lenses? Compared to that, why is this Canon "One of the exciting new cameras here at Photokina?"
How does the GM5 take pictures without a lens, because that's the only way it's pocketable.
What is the shape of this thing? It's like a slightly melted rectangle to me, as opposed to the crisp edges of the Sony. Makes it look very p&s.
mosc: Uh, I guess this wasn't a popular read but I have a small typo correction on slide 10. The Q-S1 doesn't use a 5.6x crop factor (1/2.33" sensor Q10 did) it uses a 1/1.7" sensor which has a massively smaller crop factor of a scant 4.7x
Yes, I know, nobody cares. Something is wrong in the internet and I should ignore it.
Thanks self appointed grammar police! There will be a spot in heaven for all your tireless work on this front.
