    Just off the top of my head, the Nexus 5 is $399, the Sony Xperia Z1 for $450, and the Nokia Lumia 925 should all be able to beat the iPhone 4s consistently, by varying margins. The iPhone 4s is a ...
  • The sensor in the E-PL1 is still 5x the size of the sensor in the Fuji X10, though it's much older. Let us know if you get a chance to try the camera with a different lens. Maybe you'll be able to ...
  • A Nexus 5 will shoot better than an iPhone 4s, though a significant part of that is due to the inclusion of OIS. In daylight, image quality will be comparable. A Moto X or Moto G will likely be ...
  • Does the Panasonic do RAW? Your best bet for a direct comparison of optics is likely to shoot RAW as the base level of sharpening and the contrast curves that each camera applies (0 in the ...
  • A good image depends on both the sensor as well as the lens - pairing a good sensor to a crap lens will result in images that aren't sharp or contrasty, and putting a razor sharp lens in front of ...
  • I was looking at a bag for my setup, and the Ona Bowery stood out. Very nicely made, and would've been very comfortable holding my PM2, 14-54II, and a couple of primes (or the 40-150). Probably a ...
  • I walk around with 17mm and 45mm sometimes. Works well for street photography and event photography, but I'd like something wider. Ideally, I'd have the 12mm, PL25, and 45mm, but that would cost a ...
  • Most of the time, I spot meter and have whichever lens I'm using wide open. That way, if the background is noticeably brighter/darker than the subject, I get to rely on both the bokeh and the ...
  • Replied in Panasonic G-6
    Neither the PM2 nor the PL5 have a real control wheel. The PL5 adds a mode dial, but as I don't switch between A and S and P modes quickly between shots, that's kind of lost on me. Also, neither ...
  • If size is an issue, the 12-32 is a great option, though I would recommend taking a quick look at the Panasonic 14-42 II as well. I got one for my GF's GF3, and it's quite sharp when I've played ...
  • If you don't need a flip screen or the mode dial, the E-PM2 is nearly identical to the E-PL5. The PM2 has been on sale with the 14-42mm kit for as low as $199, and with the dual lens kit (14-42 ...
  • The two cameras you're considering aren't really comparable in terms of size - the RX100 is barely bigger than a Canon IXUS, and the G1X2 is bigger than a small m4/3 or APS-C mirrorless camera ...
  • I don't know about Sony cameras, but I'm pretty sure my Oly XZ-1 has a physical 3-stop ND filter that moves into place when you activate it in the menu. Useful for staying around f/2 or so outside. ...
  • Apple's Thunderbolt display is nice, but it's not worth the premium unless you're daisy chaining TB devices or use it to connect to a MacBook Pro (where the monitor can power the laptop without a ...
  • Based on your needs/wants, there are a few options that could work. There are a lot of people recommending MacBook Airs, and that's definitely a viable option. I would, however, recommend getting ...
  • Don't discount going with the E-PM2/E-PL5 (or E-PL7, which is supposed to be out by the end of the summer) and getting the VF-4 viewfinder. You end up with one body that has the same processor and ...
  • Nikon 1 bodies really aren't any smaller than the m4/3 options that have been listed (E-PM2/PL5, GM1), and not really much cheaper right now either ($200 for the S1 or the E-PM2 on closeout), so ...
  • The posterization is often caused by compression, leading to lower bit depth. I've heard that Android's picture viewer, by default, compresses pictures much more than one would be accustomed to on ...
  • Many of us are unwilling or unable to drop $1k on a lens, regardless of how awesome it is. Additionally, we want something faster than the kit options, which aren't a whole lot better than some ...
  • Lenses I'd like to see: - Cheaper WA zoom. The 12-32 actually comes pretty close, but I wouldn't mind if it were a little wider, a little less long, and maybe a bit faster. Pancake size is great, ...
