On Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions Review preview (540 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: Does X-T10 still use SONY sensor? Any one knows?

The newest and the greatest SONY 16MP sensor was for NEX-6 released in 2012.

A new Sony 16mp M43 sensor was announced in February. I don't know if this is the one in the X-T10.

At the same time, a new Sony 20mp sensor was also announced and that is the one in the new GX8.

Prairie Pal: Shame on Panasonic for not offering a LEFT-HANDED GX8. They clearly don't care about 10% of their customers.

I use the upside down touch nose method.

Howard: Honest question:
What is the advantage of this camera over the Sony A6000?

Some of the e mount lenses for the A6000 are excellent.

Lieslayer: This camera could be a game changer for many on the fence about M43

No, you must be thinking of the Mk III. The RX100 Mk IV was announced only last month, on June 10, 2015.

https://blog.sony.com/press/sonys-rx100-iv-and-rx10-ii-cameras-bring-professional-imaging-experience-to-acclaimed-cyber-shot-rx-series/

But yes, the LX100 was announced in Sept 2014, but that was in response to the RX100 mkIII.

Comparing to the RX100 MK II is unfair. Compare it to the RX100 MK IV, which also has 4K video.

samfan: Nice tech but still and ungodly ugly camera and now it's also big. Good thing Oly makes nice and small cams, hopefully the M10 successor will be good.

An E-M10 owner but I also own 3 NEX cameras. They have a functional utility which permits, especially in the case of the 5R, an option of super lightweight and one-handed operation.

And 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder.'

In reply to:

MFiftysomething: If only this was APSC and has PDAF BSI sensor. It would still be top money but it is crazy price for M43 and minimal image improvement over the bargain GX7

Perhaps it's less the size of the sensor that counts, but the quality of the sensor. Sony's 1" sensor has produced wonders in a wide variety of camera lines. But yes, the size of the sensor is sell a strong contributor towards high resolution.

In reply to:

MDGColorado: It's odd to consider recent Panasonic innovations like DFD and IBIS + lens IS to be a drawback. These features have improved performance using Panasonic lenses, but they have not hurt performance using other lenses.

Richard-
How will the GX8 handle stabilization for manual lenses?

In reply to:

The Photo Ninja: I personally love tilt screens! The flip out screens are annoying and detract from usability.

I suppose the flip out screens are most useful for video.

In reply to:

Digital Suicide: Seeing body of the GX8, I was expecting at least APS-C sensor. And the price... Oh man. No more modesty at Panasonic. Common sense either.

Re: the 20 mp Sony sensor being used here....guaranteed that Sony will keep the best sensors for themselves.

Astrotripper: So, I guess this is the A7000 everyone was waiting for :)

Something that was dreamed up by one of the rumors sites, and Sony forums have been going gaga over it ever since.

In the hunt for the featureless mirrorless camera. The camera with nothing.

James Booba: Wondering if that´s the rumored Sony Sensor.

The two new Sony M43 sensors are a fact, one is 16mp and the other 20 mp. But unknown if the latter one is in the GX8.

In reply to:

Peiasdf: A hump just for the flash and hinge. No wonder SONY is always perceived as the better brand.

Cheap plasticky but high-performance. If they ever introduce a "pro-line" NEX-7 APS-C replacement + more lenses, then watch out ...

FrankS009: This is a nice camera at the entry level, but why does it make me feel that there is a LX100 style (and controlled) body with interchangeable lens capacity coming down the pipe?
F.

Yes, the X10 is uber-stylissimo aka Leica! The only option I need for mine is a red dot.

olypan: Rushed out to defame a quality product before the summer season gets going.
If you want a balanced true review of the G7 try camera labs .com.

But no IBIS.

In reply to:

Valentinian: the specs comparison table seems to show that the E M-10 lcd is the tilting type. Isn't it fully articulated?

The fully articulated screen is perfect for shooting videos. And Panasonic wanted the G7 to be a little video monster.

In reply to:

joelakeland: Panasonic seems to take the smallest of steps with improving their image quality for stills. Because I don't ever hit the record button for video, the latest models are pointless.

The original G1 had no video at all!

In reply to:

RichRMA: Well, isn't that interesting? Still lagging Olympus (Sony) on sensors, but for some reason, the e-shutter seems to have sharpened up the image at most ISOs. Go figure.

That's why the OMD E-M10 has zero second delay, (and also IBIS.)

On Ricoh GR II: What's new and what does it mean? article (201 comments in total)
In reply to:

brownie314: I don't have the GR, but I have and shoot daily the coolpix A. Great little camera. The 18mm lens takes some getting used to, I usually like them slightly longer, in the 22-24mm range for a prime. But it is still great. What I would really like to see is Nikon/Ricoh do is something like the x100. A 23mm f/2 lens with lots of manual controls. Yes, I know it will be larger, but so much more usable lens and controls.

It is rumored that Fuji are about to do exactly that, with a new X100 stripper model, called the "X-70."
