On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review preview (802 comments in total)
In reply to:

chiane: The Ricoh GR is about the same size, why is it not a rival?

Raist, how would you classify them, or say their best use differentiates? I am looking at both and don't see them as that night and day. The zoom on the Sony isn't that large, the Ricoh has crop modes and UWA accessory. They aren't identical, but probably the closest two in quality that fits in a pants pocket.

They both have a fixed lens, one just zooms and one doesn't. That's also just one feature. If we play that game, every camera can be knocked out for having this feature or that feature that differs.

Still more interesting than BIF pics.

VadymA: Wouldn't consider it even for $0.99/month. I just despise PS counterintuitive concept of layers.

Someone please jot this down for the record. Vady is out.

Why are we saddled with an industry full of point and shoot sensors and marginal image quality, or we have to buy like a $2000 dslr housing? There's not much in the middle between pro and soccer mom.

Fuji needs to stop crying wolf with the words, 'fast AF'.

So I take it you would need to spend like $400 for a second battery, with machines aluminum cover, if you wanted extra battery life? Totally worth it!

Not nearly as good as bird pics from the back yard feeder.

Please remember people, every camera has to look exactly the same.

How would you compare the 'shooting experience' to a Ricoh GR?

Black Box: Nothing in these photos is worth any attention. And nothing that can't be added in Photoshop. He uses an ancient process? So? Does he also use an old bottle of Bayer Heroin to treat his kids' cold? Or rides a horse to work? Yet another mediocre photographer trying to get some attention by "standing out from the crowd".

LEARN TO PHOTOGRAPH, DAMNIT!

Anger management classes.

David Bourke: Not a single shot into the sun? It would be nice to see how lens lens handles flare.

Oops. Wanna get away?

NOTICE: For those crying that there aren't people in these, that what makes them work. Every other story on immigrants has the same faces shot used to garner sympathy from the bleeding hearts. BORING! God forbid just one story does something different. If you are too shallow and un-creative to see beyond your standard 'dirty child pic with sad face' on a story about immigration like a Feed the Children ad, go back to shooting your test charts, this art form isn't for you.

G3User: Looks like a bunch of underexposed images to me. What is DPreview doing these days with guest post? If these are on here then mine should be also.

Are the corners soft?

daddyo: These are all great, but I would have been hard pressed not to pick the owl shot as the grand prize winner -- an amazing image!

Of course dpr members like the bird shot. Always the bird shot.

W5JCK: I like these because they appear to be the photos by people who are there to enjoy the parks, and not there as photographers. These look like the vacation photos we are use to seeing from our families and friends. Most were probably taken with consumer grade cameras. It is very refreshing to not see a bunch of staged, professional photographer photos that are more Photoshop than anything else.

I agree with you. I am sure pro's will be pulling underwear from their crack though.

bobbarber: Ilegal immigration can only be solved by social justice. As long as there are pronounced inequalities between the developed nations and the rest of the world, people will find a way to move towards the money.

I lived in South America for a while, and people paid coyotes (human traffickers) $7,000 -15,000 (often not cash, but the family home, etc.) to smuggle them north across the U.S. border. The journey involved extreme hardship, possibilities of abuse, and even death in the desert. Obviously the migrants would have preferred to wait in line at the U.S. embassy, even for months, and buy a plane ticket, if there had even remotely been a possibility of legally emigrating.

Illegal gangs are a symptom of the larger problem, which is social inequality. The richer countries have become an enormous gated community. The idea is to keep as much money as possible inside the gates, and fence everybody else out. Obviously the people outside the gates disagree with that model.

Bob, why does one group always have to do something for the other group? SO the US is now suppose to create a middle class in other countries as well? Why do we just do EVERYTHING!

rowlandw: Shop windows can yield great opportunities for aiming at reflections rather than the actual subject.

My wife has been the apparent subject while I actually shoot past her.

Set a high shutter speed then pan around and shoot when your subject passes into the frame and keep turning. Burst mode can work too.

I've gotten good "blind" shots from one camera at my waist while peering through another (or cellphone) aimed away from my subject.

Unfortunately it's overdone and rather cliche in street photography now.
