LB_55: Specs say no headphones port, but the review says there's one beneath the microphone port. A headphones port is important for videographers - does it have one, or not?
Ok, I think I've got to the bottom of this. The comment about mic and headphone sockets seems to have come from the Samsung NX1 page and ended up here by mistake.
I'll update the page and re-check the spec database.
Really sorry about that.
Prognathous: For the record, the auto lens cap was invented by Ricoh and then adopted by other manufacturers.
That's acknowledged in the text.
l_d_allan: > which should give excellent control over depth-of-field (including at focal lengths useful for classic portraiture)
Hype ... ???
To me, you need at least a m43 size sensor with fast lens to have "excellent control of DOF". Preferably even larger, like a Canon EF 85mm f1.8 on a 6d or 5d3 full frame.
I've corrected it to make the context (compared to other compacts) explicit.
Does this still feature the parallax error at close focusing distances which has plagued all of the Canon Gs?
It doesn't have a viewfinder, so there aren't two viewpoints to have error between.
I'm not sure I understand your point.
D1N0: specs page is missing.
ShatteredSky: Everything is there, incredible. But it sadly lacks a tiltable screen and/or viewfinder. Yes, and before you complain I am one of those guys who wants it all ;-) And I am interested who the closest focus translate to macro capabilities ...
@letsgofishing: I'm afraid that was an error in the entering the specifications.
td_100: Not sure if this statement is correct "The hallmark feature of the LX100 is its Four Thirds sensor which, as we mentioned, is significantly larger than any other compact camera save for the PowerShot G1 X II and its predecessor" What about the Fuji X100S and Ricoh GR which both have APS-C sensors?
I've changed it to say 'than any other zoom compact...' to add some clarity.
Mike FL: Jeff Keller,
Thank you for the per-view, and do you happen to know if Pana plans to release a "Wide Angle Conversion Lens" liking it did for LX5?
They've not told us either way.
rhlpetrus: Any info on AF speed?
It'll be dependent on lens design and motor choice. We won't know for sure until we can get a production unit.
HMeYe: dpreview says in the specs it has tilt screen ... the pictures don't show the tilt screen !!!!! I suppose it's a typo from Dpreview team ...
I'm afraid so. Sorry about that. It's now fixed.
Mark9473: I'm curious which Olympus 1" camera the second paragraph is referring to. Something still to be announced?
Just an error, I'm afraid.
NIK11: Hmm, well done Canon, looks like my next camera.....when prices drop. Can you guys at DPRE confirm whether there is an option to disable the touchscreen function?
Sadly the one we had has had to go out to Photokina. We'll check as soon as we can.
That should now be fixed. Sorry about that.
Karl Gnter Wnsch: @DPreview, the remote connector type is not E3, it's N3!And there are discrepancies in reported ISO ranges, either it's 50-12800 or 100-16000, depending on which page of your preview I choose to believe...
Sorry about that - I've corrected the error in the text (the spec table was correct).
peevee1: DPR, any pictures of the viewfinder?
I've just added one.
mpgxsvcd: “but you need to remember that ISO100 on a small sensor won't be the same quality as ISO 100 on a larger sensor.”
It almost sounds like you are saying “If I take a full frame sensor and cut it down to micro four thirds size the noise for ISO 100 will magically change”. If you crop a sensor noise does not change.
Even more simply:
Take an image (it doesn't matter what lens, camera, format).
Crop the middle 25% out of it. Blow it back up to the same size. You've lost resolution, relative to the original one but you've also made each pixel's noise a greater proportion of the overall image (and thus increased the image's noise).
Or, looked at another way, a full frame sensor's image is likely to be noisier than that of a Pentax 645Z (44 x 33mm), using the same settings and equivalent lenses. However, use a wider lens and crop a 36x24mm chunk out of the Pentax image, blow it up to the same size you were previously comparing and you're likely to find the noise is the same as having natively shot it in the 135 format.
John De Bord Photography: Wait, no Sony Alpha mount?? Seriously?
It's an error at our end. I'm really sorry about that.
Digimat: anyone knows if this beauty has the intervalometer function like the x-t1?
It does, yes.
Jonathan F/2: APS-C is so 2006.
And 35mm is quite 1923, but that doesn't suddenly undermine its capabilities.
Daniel Lauring: Hopefully they finally added face detection. Ridiculous not to have that focus aid in this day and age.
They did. Yes.
