  • There were 15.5 million fixed lens cameras shipped by Japanese companies in the first seven months of this year. Conventional wisdom seems to be that companies such as Canon have "seen the end of ...
  • (1) Canon Rebel SL1 is 12% (16.1 mm) narrower and 3% (2.7 mm) shorter than Panasonic Lumix DMC GH4. (2) Ca ...
  • Well said! Your only comment that I would quibble with is that Apple owes their success to execution .  I view Samsung as a company that excels in execution.  They have few original ideas but are ...
  • Your argument runs counter to the fact that mirrorless has had the most success in Japan. Did you also forget that Olympus, Panasonic and Sony are also Japanese companies.  Mirrorless cameras made ...
  • As long as that strategy is generating profits, why not continue with it while at the same time devoting R&D money to getting ready to replace DSLRs with mirrorless when sales/profit data indicate ...
  • If they are so out of touch with their customers please explain why 7 of the 10 best selling camera configurations in Japan for August were Canons. http://bcnranking.jp/category/subcategory_0008_mo ...
  • I seem to recall Thom Hogan noting that Nikon's share of the compact market has increased over the past 2-3 years. Olympus was hurt badly for several years by continuing to produce too many compact ...
  • Does that mean you think that if mirrorless market share continues to climb you think Canikon will choose to go down with the DSLR ship rather than trying to improve on their initial efforts? Many ...
  • It is foolish to think Canikon won't change to mirrorless at some point in the future. For the time being, the fact remains that their dSLRs continue to dominate the ILC market. Even in Japan, ...
  • Do you have to own something to criticize it? :)  I don't, for example, own a current model BlackBerry, Surface tablet., although I've tried them out in stores  While I'm sure I would have a ...

    "I’m surprised at how nice the quality is from APS-C (Super 35mm) mode on the A7S. I expected it to be a lot softer! There’s no signs of significant moire or aliasing...

    Two professional videographers also recently reviewed both the GH4 &...

  • DSLRs continue to dominate for two reasons: 1) more long-term established user base, and 2) they continue to comprise the lion's share of new ILC sales, even in Japan. For the first six months of ...
  • Replied in Olympus
    I don't recall the sources, but several analysts concluded that Sony invested in Olympus because they wanted to diversify and felt that Oly's medical division would continue to grow and generate ...
  • You have a point, but only at 24mm.  The RX100-III rapidly rises to 2.8 (f/8 equivalent). It is close to maximum at 28mm (about f/7 equivalent) and reaches f/8 equivalent at approximately 30mm. ...
  • It is faster because the mFT sensor is larger than the RX100 sensor.
  • Amidst all of the discouraging news about camera sales, it is nice to see that mirrorless shipments by Japanese camera makers exceeded last year's shipments for the same month every month in the ...
  • I read Andrew's article and check his site every week and knew exactly what the context was when I posted my comment. The fact remains that anyone who frequents the DPR fora knows that a title ...
  • Wonderful camera - probably saved the Olympus camera business.  Using the Fn buttons continues to annoy me and I miss the GH2's articulating screen.  Otherwise, no complaints.
