On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (689 comments in total)
In reply to:

camerosity: Really, dpreview?? You completely ignore the Nikon 1 V3, released BEFORE this thing, and you review the Canon first?

How much is Canon been paying you?

Canon G1X et al is a fixed zoom point and shoot. Yawn.

Nikon 1 V3 is a mirrorless SLR camera with adapters for nearly every lens mount out there...

And you ignore it.

Pathetic...

what DPR said, and the nikon j camera is just another of the same lot... many nikon 1 cameras but the G1 X mark II is quite an update with the faster lens, wide focal range, video autofocus, touch screen, etc.

123Mike: $800, fixed lens, video is only 30 fps.
The Sony A6000 with its fast PDAF and 60 fps video and exchangeable lenses, is a far FAR better choice !

now show me sony's 24-120 f/2-f/4 lens that is as compact as on the G1 X mark II. I'll wait..

On Sony SLT-A77 II First Impressions Review preview (672 comments in total)
In reply to:

Frank_BR: Three cameras, same price: $ 1199

Sony A77II: 12fps
Nikon D7100: 6fps
Canon 70D: 7fps

SLT rules, flipping mirror sucks!

you are talking prices instead of classes. The a77 is along side the old d300s and 7D both are on the verge of being replaced but will cost a bit more than the a77. sony has been trying to tempt buyers with low prices on cameras for quite some time now without huge gains. Low prices and high quality, high performance rarely go together.

DPR: lame attempt to pan a new term: "fixed mirror DSLR". Nope, sorry. It's not a SLR camera. It's an SLT. Nothing reflects off its mirror.

So few comments. Guess the thrill is lost with the entry level dSLR.

In reply to:

JordanAT: Wow, that's fast enough - and large enough - to be a SSD drive in a small PC. Pretty soon we're going to need faster USB ports.

No, pretty soon we're not going to have cables, aside from laptop to screen and device to electric outlet. Things will all be wireless and people will be happy. Cables suck.

In reply to:

RedFox88: This makes the size of CF cards look very obsolete.

I haven't had a need to take a memory card out anywhere but at my computer in years. Not everyone sprays and prays shooting 500 RAW photos in an afternoon and needs to get another 64GB card out.

And flip phones went out because of added functionality (keyboard, more meory and faster CPUs allowed for a phone to do more than voice and text) - not because they were too small for people's hands!

In reply to:

Roland Karlsson: Hmmmmmm ... the images are not all that fantastic. Not bad ... but. And it shows that it is only 13 MP.

I have my G10 and really loves it. So, this has better IQ. But ... is it worth it. Or shall I buy something else?

Questions.

I need something newer to replace my G10 as a smaller companion to my Pentax K-5.

All pixels are not created equal. Even my G15 does far better than your G10, and I should know since my brother has a G10 - that doesn't focus well indoors because of its slow lens. Faster lens does wonders for indoor autofocus... and the MUCH bigger sensor the G1 X mark II has over your G10 will blow your photos away at higher ISO.

Jay Williams: I can't believe dpreview has stooped to the level of using the word "selfie." What is this world coming to?

The Pope now takes selfies with the public. I believe it was added to the two major dictionaries.

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Why is it so hard to get a camera like this right? I’m sure it takes better shots than the RX100 (the original G1X does this) but for $800 there shouldn't be any obvious “issues”.

If it needs a bigger grip, they should give you one. If the battery doesn't last, let the user zoom manually.

Right... every $800 should be perfect for everyone, right?

In reply to:

ChrisKramer1: Hmm. I'm just wondering how long such a camera will last before dust starts getting in the sensor, the electronic zoom starts playing up, EVF is dropped/lost and the flip screen breaks off. Maybe smaller should also mean simpler. I see the Panasonic GM1 is now down to 600 Euros with kit lens.

When's the last time you had a P&S compact (all have power zooms) with a zoom lens that stopped zooming? I haven't. I thought one of the m4/3 makers started to make powered zooms too.

In reply to:

FRANCISCO ARAGAO: I wonder whats the G1X advantage over the mirrorless counterparts.

A small 24-120 f/2-f/3.9 lens that's the advantage. No need to interchangeable lenses if the included lens is good and fast! Fill many a photo user's needs!

In reply to:

RedFox88: Canon's 2 MP HD video camera that made news a few months ago seems to be the low light video king. No need for more than 2 MP if the goal is HD video.

This is about video, not stills. Not having to downsize or skip lines ia a big advantage for Canon's offering.

Let me know when TV shows are being broadcast in 4k. Until then it's only for gadget junkies who like paying top dollar for the latest thing.

More of sony making so many cameras but not really being great at any of them. Jack of all trades, master of none.

In reply to:

Ron A 19: What a great idea! The A7s uses the same approach as the d700 - less resolution, more sensitivity. However, now that all cameras can give low noise at ISO 12800, I wonder if it's really necessary for sony to push resolution downward to 12MP. Seems that the real benefits aren't for stills but for low light video. I'm sure this will do very well in a videographer's arsenal.

No, the d700 is an old camera that's why it's low resolution - it used the d3 image sensor. Newer image sensors beat old ones even when adding more pixels. That's plainly clear. I don't use nikon but I'd take a d800 over a d700 for high ISO noise easily.

AbrasiveReducer: People risk their lives to show we should never engage in war unless absolutely unavoidable. Yet we keep electing tough talking nitwits who have never been in combat but have no problem sending others.

Dude, it's an all volunteer army. Nobody is picking people off the streets to go into battle. They know what they are agreeing to when they sign their contract with the military. So easy to criticize. Making big decisions is tough and takes a big man to do so.

All 4 cameras compare equally in RAW. Glad you waited and whined for months, ricohians?
