mpgxsvcd: I think the biggest problem I have is that Dpreview doesn’t understand its own audience. We simply don’t want to hear about this camera. It isn’t something that we would ever consider buying. We accept that you don’t EVER talk about products from RED or the high end Panasonic video cameras because we know that not many people here would ever buy those.
So why is this camera so special? What makes Dpreview think that their readers want to have this camera shoved in our face every couple of days. For once and for all. Stop pimping this camera to us. We get it that you think it is revolutionary. However, we simply don’t see it that way.
Barney, possibly more moderation IS indeed needed and that is not directed towards any one individual.
Battersea: I hope Canon starts shopping there.
Brendon, my comment was not directed specifically to you, it amazes me that you get so defensive.
Your a wonderful photographer and very knowledgeable, now go have a nice day!
Hi Rishi, i think the trolls here have a hard time understanding photography/videography much less how to run a business. All they can do is compare numbers, art eludes them.
Just Ed: Have To agree about "photos" sucking even in comparison with iPhoto. Apple seems to be dumbing down a lot of OSX to be compatable with IOS.
IIf I wanted my iMac to be more like the iPad I would not have spent a couple of grand on it.
Yes it does, sir. The interface is dumbed down for the masses. You have to click through to get to the good stuff.
You Won't find me adopting photos, at least not until all the other options are exhausted.
Anyway, tnx for a spirited discussion. Good luck on your adventure for a RAW converter.
Vscd, they might just be people who actually use their cameras rather than quote one specification 😀
I was surprised how far down the comments I had to go before running into the predictable Sony Zealots.
Surprisingly, up to this point the comments were worth reading.
justmeMN: For Nikon, Sony makes customized sensors with preinstalled oil spots. :-)
They are called "Beauty Spots"
AND a sucky interface.
Michael MacGillivray: Being in a good mood today, I won't comment on Photos, other than to say I tried dragging it to the trashcan.
How much effort would it be for Apple to offer ongoing support for Aperture 3? No development, just support. They obviously no longer have a photo editing application.
"They obviously no longer have a photo editing application."
Best comment yet!
Well my IPhoto has the ability to controll exposure, contrast, histogram levels, shadows, highlights, color, tint, sharpening, denoise and definition. Plus the few special effects and crop
What does photos add?
Damgood, I disagree.
Canon has the EOS Remote program for free which works on iPad, iPhone and Android. You need a WiFi enabled DSLR, the 6D has native WiFi.
The Canon app is pretty good, btw.
Nice tough looking camera. It should be quit an attractive package with all the 4/3 lenses out there.
Barry the Pentax Nut: How have 25 people already owned this camera?
And dozens more have already formed their negative opinion about it.Gotta love the geeks of the web, they miss no opportunity to criticize something.

One thing for sure, this is not for the armchair experts who haunt these forums.
Yet I suspect it will indeed be a God send for working journalists and industrial video production. You know, people who actually use their equipment to produce marketable results.
random78: So after reading the updated article it is still not clear that other than the codec what does XC10 offer to make it more worthy of the revolutionary convergence device. As I wrote in a comment below, its still image capabilities are not even up to par with good P&S cameras. How can you call it a true convergence device given that it doesn't even shoot RAW images, lacks basic image controls like exposure bracketing, has rudimentary continuous shooting at 3.8FPS, has a maximum shutter speed of only 1/2000s and so on. It is clearly a camcorder with rudimentary image capture support like all previous camcorders. I am sorry to say but other than the grip, it is a far mediocre convergence device than say FZ1000 or RX10.
Apparently he did.
Very nice images, quite inspiring.
zodiacfml: Why bash the camera, it has a reasonable price at launch. It has a price of a Sony RX100 with good specs and looks. This might be larger than the compact but this is insanely fast.
I criticized the previous 1 series cameras because they were priced in a vacuum, as though, they don't have competition with the same format and larger formats.
Pixel peeping this would be fun too as it might approach m4/3. We will see.
Dark goob, I think your account is over stated, but liked it anyway for your passion! 😃
What a great idea! With that said, I would be cautious investing in SW whith such bad user reviews. Hopefully the product will improve with time.
