mediasorcerer: that nx1 is HUGE for a mirrorless, when samsung gets the quality of ther lenses up to fuji/ oly/sony zeiss standards then it may help there sales, but the nx1 was a poorly thought out mirrorless camera as its way too big/ its a dinosaur and way too expensive, the lenses are huge too, defeats the purpose of milc.

no firmware can change these facts/nor marketing spin, thats why its a flop of a camera.

for the money, your way better off with ff canikony or equiv.

Yeah, you'll appreciate that small mirrorless camera size which provides a poor grip whenever you hang some heavy glass on the front of the camera....NOT.

The point of a mirrorless camera may be small camera size. It may be that it makes it easier to make a camera that does either still images or video equally well. And the two do not have to always happen at the same time.

LukeDuciel: I am looking (eagerly) forward to A7s mark II.

I would expect 12 - 18 months between release of the original A7S and the Mark II. That's just the way product development and release typically go. But we can hope.

select: when they will make a 50mm and 35mm f1.8 at the same price point of Nikon and Canon? (so it means around $250)
this system won't be successful if they don't make some good quality but cheap lens

Fast, good, and cheap - pick any two. And it applies in almost any business.

nicolaiecostel: Everyone's announcing cameras and Ricoh is announcing announcements. What have they been smoking?

@LensBeginner
The Pentax 645Z is a great camera by all accounts, and very inexpensive by the standards of the other machines in Medium Format, but even so the volumes it will sell in are microscopic. It is a niche of a niche.

You nailed it. CES comes with Pentax having no new product to show says it all.

qwertyasdf: Hey, I heard that Pentax will finally release a FF DSLR next year.....for the 10 past years.

I will believe Pentax is doing a FF DSLR when I see it and it's available for purchase and not a moment before.

Here's betting Russia would love to have it.

Phenixburn: This has to be either the worst idea I have ever seen in the realm of photography, or a true stroke of brilliance that I simply do not have the capacity of understanding?

One thing is for certain, if you buy this, if you even think about buying this, you will no doubt be considered among the Douch-bag elite!

Look at it this way: Someone has pulled out all the stops, giving their all to make Hasselblad look good by comparison.

Jogger: Still no optical image stablisation.

I wouldn't expect it to. The way to make an action/indestructible cam is to eliminate as many moving parts as possible.

Michael Ma: Sometimes GPS comes in handy when trying to remember exactly where you took it.

I think people are oversensitive to private data that no one would ever care about. OK, so you went to Yosemite National Park and a TGIF for a company dinner. Guess what, no one cares.

They added Wifi, they took away GPS. I imagine they did what they did because they figured out what most people will actually pay for and the eternal battery life/CIPA #pictures taken tradeoff.

In reply to:

William Koehler: A handy specification to include would be maximum video clip length(time).

Some cameras stop at 2 GB, others at 4 GB, others at 29 minutes 50 seconds, and others like the Panasonic cameras at 45 minutes, 2 hours, and unlimited (GH1/2/3/4).

Simon jackson: dumb question but vs a6000?

For those into DSLR class video, the Sony A6000 has no mic or headphone jacks so it is less useful standalone.

PatrickP: Sony really need to up their game with a RX10 Mark II. I had shot with a RX10 for a while and the biggest problem is
1. Continuous AF really sucks, despite having a very bright lens.
2. The lack of a better codec for video. Sony need to put their 50Mbps AVC-S codec found on the A7S or even the small action cameras on RX10 II. I would also gladly take 50/100 Mbps MP4 found on the GH3/GH4.
3. The stabilization can be better.

A lot of folks bought the RX10 as a video camera and with panasonic finally realizing their cameras (GH3/GH4) shoot better video than almost everyone else Sony really need to catch up.

I understand your desire but the Panasonic GH3 & GH4 & Sony A7S with a nice lens are 2x - 4x the price and so are really a distinctly higher class of camera. And I have seen plenty of stunning footage shot with the RX10. If you don't want it send it to me!
