Now that PS is no longer possible for me to buy, not rent, so goes the need for Windows ... back to Linux and FREE image editing software. R.I.P. Adobe.

RaZZ3R Death: Dear DPR team, I would like to see a comparison with higher MP count cameras like Sony A77, Nikon D5200 to see if you can get the sharpness of 24MP AA-filtered sensor. And I would really appreciate a comparison in high ISO noise with Sony's 24 MP APS-C and Full Frame sensor (Sony A65/77/99, Nikon D3200/5200/7100/600) and Canon's 20MP 6D and specially Fujifilm's X-Trans sensor.

Yes, I know that it's not true resolution but it is perceptive resolution because a slightly blurred higher MP sensor wouldn't print as big as a lower MP sensor without AA filter because there are no additional gains in details because of the AA filter blurring the sharpness of the MP count, giving only an advantage of cropping more MP for framing. I did say about the noise because I want to see the advantages, in stops, of higher size sensor of FF (the "low end" ones like Nikon D600/Canon 6D) against the best APS-C sensor (like Pentax K-5/5 II/5 IIs/Nikon D7000/7100/ Fujifilm X-Pro1/X-E1) in the high ISO noise performance. As far as I can tell, from DPR's own studio shots, the Fujifilm best's even Full Frame in terms of lower noise (JPEG & RAW) at high ISO (1600-12800) and how would that correlate with other APS-C cameras in the semi-professional range.

Bravo Sigma, now please make for the other system, that Canon and Nikon pretends they don't exist, like Pentax and Sony, the ones who have IBIS.

jon404: Great. Just what we need... a new technology allowing even-smaller viewfinders. Hey, camera makers! We baby boomers, the only segment left with some savings, have poor eyesight! All the pixels in the world can't help if the display device is physically very small...

Actually the grater the megapixels the bigger the EVF physical size can be without getting to jagged and/or low details. And most of the EVF's to date are bigger then entry level and some mid-level DSLR's and on par with the professional range like Canon xD and Nikon Dxxx & Dx.

stanislaff: So, in fact this is a 1.2 Mp display, not 3.6. Just running in 120 Hz, which corresponds to 40 Hz for full-color image.

It doesn't say 3.6 MP but 3.6 M dots which is not the same. But the 40 Hz per color does seem slow since a lot of people CAN perceive changes in the 30-60 Hz range of displays be it OLED or LCD. When they can get at least 60 Hz per color, making a total of 180 Hz then field-sequential design might be equal to the show all colors at all times method.

I don't get this obsesion with iPhone ... it's not BY FAR the best option to take photos since there are so many better IQ out there from Samsung, Sony, HTC even Nokia.

Just asking here but does this little lens have very good macro capabilities because I see written on the lens 1:1.8 between 17mm and MSC logo and the only thing that comes to my mind the obvious magnification numbers.

Actually I got into photography because a phone, started to take pictures with a Sony Ericsson P990i and I couldn't stop my self I loved it so much .... and then I upgraded to an DSLR after I couldn't do the photos they way I wanted because the limitation of technology. I will never forget my 2MP Autofocus camera witch, ironically, made me fall in love for the bokeh and macro.

RaZZ3R Death: Just another rebaged Olympus product, should have gone wider then 8mm (since Panasonic has the widest m43 lens at 7mm) and a more powerfull guide number since the GH3 is supposed professional tool ... right ?!?

I know it's still the new kit on the block (compared to SLR) but really, if Olympus will get rid of Four Thirds in time (witch I'm sure they will) then they should start giving more professional quality lenses and accessories. Panasonic did good since they started to offer better and faster zoom and Olympus went with prime lenses so should Panasonic introduce items that lack in the Micro Four Thirds environment if they want to get a upper hand and more money.

On photo Oh No! in the anxious challenge (8 comments in total)

I think it oversharpening because it's the same amount of grain on the shadows (birds underwing) as highlight and now color noise at all.

TomasJacko: are the ugly blown highlights a sign of excellence?

The highlights are blown but it doesn't affect the main subject but the purple fringing is more annoying wich are both easily corrected in Photoshop or Lightroom.

Link | Posted on Sep 20, 2012 at 10:20 UTC

Wouldnt it be possible to mount filters on the plastic thread of the lens hood ? It's really annoying that we can't use ND/Polarizer/Other filters with wide angle lenses where we need them the most :)

xoio: Alas it's only redeeming feature is that it is dirt cheap.
It is clearly a thrown together 'me too' bridge cam, with no innovation .. a 230k EVF? come on! - I suppose though, as least it still HAS an EVF, when compared to the current trend of omitting them, thus turning the other cameras into a wavy-iPhone.
With a function & feature list that is mediocre at best. - NO Hot shoe!!?
You can tell this is Pentax saying... yeah, i suppose we can enter the bridge cam sector too, but mustn't in any way make a cam that would loose us a DSLR sale in favour of it.
Therefore ... why bother making this cam really, when it doesn't stack up against any of the other current bridge cams.
16MP in a pinhead low grade CMOS!?, you just know the image quality is going to be toot!

This isnt the first entry to bridge camera for Pentax, search for Pentax X-70 and X-90. And Pentax allways redeeming quality was price when it comes to its compacts (and no so more for the bridge section) cameras. There are good compacts from Pentax WG-1/2 wich may not give the best IQ but it has a lot of features and there not just gimmics
