It's time for sony to revive DSC-R1. Sony can even keep lens unchanged
Combatmedic870: This will sell well.It has good AF(ALL cross type),great touch screen(via the M), new sensor" new AF system also includes a new Hybrid CMOS AF II sensor", And alot of really good lenses.
Body only for a just announced camera is only $649. Not to bad.
Its build quality is most likely better VS the T4i due to it being more compact.
Looks like they lost alot of weight by loosing the DSLR battery. only 380 shots is mirrorless area.Now if they could just make a pancake 30mm F1.8-F2 for crop, this camera would do really great.
"The camera includes a new nine-point center cross-type autofocus (AF) system"
you will be disappointed
in "Key Specifications Compared"
RX100 is BSI CMOS? I am pretty positive it is not
although I suspect LX7 is BSI cmos, panasonic never claim it is BSI
SHood: So how long until this global shutter sensor shows up in cameras? That is the big question.
sony has that technology named HDR movie mode.
It only works in movie mode right now.
Actually, LX7 is very likely use this sensor too.
The only difference is panasonic omits the BSI part in its specs, it is understandable since panasonic always trying to downplay BSI to promote their own "smart FSI"
One question, do you guys try to maintain light EV consistence through different test at different times?
tmascolo: It is funny listening to people talk about computer horsepower, memory, and hard drive storage. I have a neighbor in her late 60s who has been a photographer her whole life, she calls the memory cards 'film' and drops her 'film' off at the lab to get prints made and a DVD. She does not 'process' her photos at home, just like she did not with film.
I would infer from this that the target market of entry level cameras do not do their own processing, they just drop off their 'film' at the store to get their prints and/or a DVD to pop into their DVD player to watch their 'slides'. They don't sit for hours on each picture staring at the pixel structure of each image to decide whether it is an 'acceptable' image, then edit it, then print it, or put it on a DVD, Blu-Ray or whatever...
I think the wording is by some bad translating.the japanese site is 「D3200」は、有効画素数約2400万画素（24.2メガピクセル）の新開発のニコンDXフォーマットCMOS
which should be translated as newly developed nikon DX format CMOS.
which is same with D7000 wording.
and the sensor image http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d3200/img/features01/img_01.png
which is more like sony IMX071 sensor than D3100'shttp://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d3100/img/features01/img_01.png
I believe its a tweaked sony sensor.
will dpreview post an in-depth review for this?
