On Casio Japan introduces Exilim EX-ZR3000 and EX-ZR60 article (64 comments in total)
In reply to:

sapporodan: It was the DP review compact round up that made me buy my Casio FH100, a great camera, getting a bit old in the tooth now but I still like it.

Shame Casio have not expanded beyond small sensor compacts. They were there right from the start and I don't want to see the brand disappear.

Well, 1/1.7" is quite a bit bigger than 1/2.3". What we know about Casio though is that they generally specialise in making small things and are apparently happy being a niche player in the camera market, so...

I don't care about dpreviews real world examples if I don't have a reference

And I haven't cared much for their test scene since they removed the parrot feathers.

It struck me that the presenter in the video would be exceptionally difficult to print as she has such a pronounced differentiation between head and neck. And indeed the final figurine reflects exactly this, so they clearly apply an edge smoothing algorithm to ensure that these things are printable at all.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV First Impressions Review preview (1325 comments in total)
In reply to:

N13L5: Not one picture of the camera with the lens retracted?

Or does the lens always stick out that far?

I agree with the OP that such an image should have been included. A very obvious oversight, imo. And, remarkably, one that could still be fixed...

Rmontanta: I really want the best small low light camera for stills of my family under $2,000 with a prime or fixed lens. I have an eos M with a 22mm lens and I am happy with it but I am ready to upgrade for even better low light. The sony A7II is tempting. I would appreciate your thoughts.

"[...] Leica D-lux cameras with 10 megapixels. They should be great in low light."

No, the sensor is quite small and low light performance is not great.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 makes leap to 20MP article (168 comments in total)
In reply to:

johnsmith404: Calling a resolution increase of just around 12% a 'leap' is pushing it a bit.

I like my resolution in two dimensions, so megapixels it is!

On Pentax K-3 II added to studio test scene comparison article (177 comments in total)
In reply to:

Shiranai: This is the first camera that (with pixel shift) is comparable to Canon 6D in image quality at ISO 6400. And for all saying Sony sensors are so much advanced, take a good look:

@onlooker: Right, but it limits the maximum achievable DR.

The complaint with Canon sensors is the lack of dynamic range, which the test scene is not really equipped to test.

They have a low light option for the test scene, but it's not sufficiently demanding to show a real difference between currently available cameras.

In reply to:

belle100: According to the previous models (FZ100, FZ150, FZ200, etc.) naming convention, Shouldn't this camera be called FZ250 instead.

Maybe they think they have more headroom than they need for new models. Releasing a new model every two years, they have six years now before they get near the FZ70, and most will have forgotten about that model by then, so there should be no confusion. Maybe management decided it was unlikely that the 1/2.3 bridge format would survive much longer than that.

OR they just want to emphasise that this is a big upgrade. Which you wouldn't guess by looking at the up-front photography specs - same lens, same sensor, so what's new? Maybe they're hoping customers will look at this one differently if they give it a bigger number, suggesting that there are indeed new aspects to it.

(Cue for someone to come along and explain to me that it is all new and different - YES I GET THAT, THANK YOU.)

I think you may also be interested in the Ricoh GR.

In reply to:

JeanPierre Thibaudeau: This is only the 8th news posted here on DPR about the Sony RX100 Mk 4 and the complete review is not out yet.

Does evey camera gets the same attention here? Maybe not...

Sometimes I do wish for a re-preview given the grammar and spelling "features" on DPR, though.

In reply to:

Cihangir Gzey: I wait for battery durability figures for the RX100 IV. If tiny NP-BX1 will die out in 10 minutes while recording 4K or will not be able to record a full 29:59 minutes of Full HD (60fps) with a single charge, than it has no meaning to me. Dpreview, Richard Butler PLEASE test battery life for video.

On the subject of "fetish", I believe the original concern was that the OP desires to shoot 30 mins as a single continuous scene. This doesn't allow for changing batteries. Whether it's a need that many people have is a different matter, but if the OP has it I think we should respect that.

Apparently so, and even the tech press is playing along.

I am guessing they will still claim 'impact damage' as people send their defective units in...

Not to mention the D810 bright spots.

Because Nikon has control over the assembly. If it's a problem with a third party assembly place, then Nikon needs to change contractor, or set up their own shop. I can't sub-contract something to somebody else and if there's a complaint, shrug and say, "but he did it". Sub-contracting is my choice, my risk, and my responsibility.
