It’s nice Nikon sent a message about the lenses ahead. I have little doubt the sensor and the camera will perform superbly.
I also think it’s a basic mistake Nikon went with this small sensor size. And I don’t like the design no matter how I try. It’s putting off just to look at it.
Again though, the design, the sensor and the overall performance optimization does make sense and goes together.
If this is the only mirrorless design Nikon will attempt, it’s a double basic mistake for going with this style and sensor size.To whom it suits I am sure they will have a great CX performer in many respects if not all. Hynek
Appreciate the spontaneous report Barney. It’s not only refreshing but the lens also deserves full attention. I somehow doubt the AF won’t be a first rate with the production sample.Hynek
Question - Will the links in the signature be active?Hynek
Glad to hear about the light skin mode coming.thank you,
Black colour has its undisputable benefits and a top position in graphic and is deservedly popular.
Seemingly little change in colour and contrast can have a big impact, though. There is a great scale of colour and grey gradients but only relatively few sweet spots and not much room around them. Making the main activity board pure black poses kind of neutrality where the loss of a slightest shade gets distracting and uncomfortable in frequent contact – like lots of regular reading. It’s usually fine for setting off a comment section or an advert bay and similar irregular field by it.
The previous version had the forums message board darker grey, not too deep dark or too close to pure black. So while the classic scheme is the same its execution has changed and has lost its right balance. That's why more complains about the contrast than before.Apart from this I welcome many changes and the better coding. Bugs and little things fixed along the way is normal.Hynek
Blacks in the centre and on the sides.
What causes the extra eye strain compared to the previous version is darkening the central post’s column making it pure black and lightening the sides. It’s not a wise move as the contrast increases exactly where the point of interest is. The text has got more contrast and it contrasts even more on the fully saturated blacks now.
The previous version had this in reverse order (light central column and the dark sides). This makes the colour composition based on this set uncomfortable and it also looks inferior. As if a bug one gets when a page is not loaded fully. got some time to put my finger on it. I definitely recommend changing it or giving an option of choice.Hynek
Looking nice &better. I am guessing it was mentioned before, just to support: the white background skin would be a welcome standard option.
Petrogel: This review thing is getting ridiculous !!!!!! in short while you'll be reviewing photo cameras belts !!!!!
Just the idea of reviewing borescope cameras poses a health risk so I speak for not doing that type of things.
Nice stylish toploader. I am using another one of Lowepro AW 70's, the last version is well worth the upgrade. The bag remains fully operable with total rain protection on and the tough nylon the cover is made of can withstand heavy rain and some abuse. What’s a real joy to use is well-shaped and padded internal compartment (like in a good car). Once we tried that we swapped the previous version in that moment. Can’t imagine anything better for a frequent, routine and quick pulling out/putting in than a toploader. Choice is good, not everyone needs it built like mountaineering equipment.
Some nice moves, the site deserves some upgrade too after all. Somehow can’t get to like the post rating and I never really did but have to acknowledge it’s the better face of our immaturity. so off back to the kindergartens where great deal of us belong. suppose I would be now getting some thumbs down;)
Looking like a very nice work.
I see the poster is not active here. found the exact spot on his/her website.
Where is it? not like I want to go there :), would like to know,
Looks like Olympus has done a nice job on that sensor. And the whole camera looks nice, too. I wish they overcome those recent troubles and are doing well; they are some name in photography world and have contributed to it a great deal after all.
As for the comparisons, they aren’t easy but still best done in this standardization fashion via the adobe’s acr for general purposes and basic idea (resolution, noise). - Except perhaps serious conclusions about the colours. Nikon and Canon native convertors do deliver simply very different and higher quality colours (accuracy) as against adobe standards (also seen using DP comparison tool of that). Using the ACR there is a need (or/and options for it) to be selective when choosing a particular profile/mode and other tools to achieve the original look. Not to mention WB and the ways of applying it. As with any comparison one has to always look what exactly is compared. I guess 60% of users don’t understand it. This could be pointed in comment section of any review.
Very good review, interesting, truly useful as an intro to otherwise less known systems, an insight and a source of information. I find reviews here broader view based with a lesser tendency of applying subjective points that used to be more frequent in comparison. Whether the P7100 review or this one, it’s an enjoyable read - great work. Quite a pity the camera has no LV. Some critical function for landscapes with precise focus-aperture-dof relation in mind and an ultimate control over the focus in row of situations.Nice those sigma users got this (great) option but the company’s steps resemble a trafficker. - likely to leave a strange taste for some time.
The interchangeable-lens mirrorless compacts are booming (thankfully) but Canon does good to carry on their G style (legendary) camera (great) job and bringing the G distinctive step further. Not quite popular or largely fitting today’s mood but a very good work on a camera that manages to stand out - not that easy.Other sites downright excited in the past about the G series results/camera are far more absorbed by the moods. That is telling about a solidity of the base of their views – and about their genuine photographer approach. I see a line between photographers and the obsessive toy-boys. The first are interested in photography, the others in messing about with gadgets (best expensive ones) for sake of the messing about.And a clever move. There is a way how to make it cost-effective and drive the competing segment nuts also in the future.If you don't want the G1x wait for the 2 or g3x, they will be improved.Ow' surely, canon will come with an interchangeable-lens compact tooH
Very nice set of samples. Nice jpgs overall. The lens doesn’t look a weak point of the camera either. Plenty of detail recorded.
Many of the comments on here truly boggle my mind.
No, there is no 24mm.No there is no 200mm.No, there is no f2.0.No, it won't fit in a small pocket.No, it doesn't have an EVF.No, it doesn't have 50 different gimmicky menu options that are on the Rebel.
What it is is a thoughtful series of compromises, resulting in an extremely practical, compact walk-around camera with a great sensor combined with a very good lens with good speed for the price and a good zoom range.
If you don't get it, it's not for you. It's for the thousands and thousands of other photographers who realize the real world value of its many strengths. Everything is a compromise. You just have to be smart enough to choose the camera/compromise that you can live with and serves your true needs best.
Yeh, it's right. True also is, there is more than a sensor and that all camera matters. Looking for a fast AF this camera won’t be the best go. But it wasn’t intended to be. Improvements are likely with future models and that can too include the AF. I suppose the AF will be reasonably accurate which I see more important than the speed with this camera. This project is interesting because it has a chance not to be limited by the sensor. What comes next is the lens - camera is only as good as its lens; not always clear what of these two comes first and what second in importance. The AF accuracy, then the speed – that is never amiss and other camera features. The crucial point for this camera looks to be quality of the lens. This is what’s likely to separate a success of this particular gx model from a great success. Compact cameras began to differentiate more and more, users have options..many users can’t see much beyond their own preference n want see it in every product.
