On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (965 comments in total)

Seriously did Panasonic just trump Canon’s flag ship A-PSC DSLR with a tiny point and shoot camera?

Late Breaking News. Canon commits suicide. Nikon attempted suicide but they are on life support with a very grim prospect of survival.

Is there a time limit for video?

The Amazon page says "Special Shipping Information: Due to federal and international regulations, this product can only be shipped within the 50 states.". Could that mean that the U.S. cameras have no video time limit?

These are HUGE improvements for Hybrid shooters. Finally you can take continuous video and extract high quality stills from the video.

I wonder if they included the minimum shutter speed setting for Auto ISO in Program Priority mode? That may be the additional ISO control they talked about.

mpgxsvcd: “but you need to remember that ISO100 on a small sensor won't be the same quality as ISO 100 on a larger sensor.”

It almost sounds like you are saying “If I take a full frame sensor and cut it down to micro four thirds size the noise for ISO 100 will magically change”. If you crop a sensor noise does not change.

@dtmateojr

+1 I agree with what you are saying. I didn't see this article until lately and I really was perplexed by some of the conclusions.

@Richard

Any chance we could revisit this topic again? There still are a lot of people with questions about your conclusions here.

@Richard, but why would you compare a blown up image from a lower resolution but equal pixel density sensor? You have to compare these images at 1:1 pixels. Blowing it up just demonstrates the difference in resolution not the difference in noise.

Cropping the sensor loses resolution it doesn’t affect noise. The same sensor that was there before is still there. You are just simply throwing away some of the data from it. You also throw away some noise as well. Whether that noise that you throw away is in proportion to the signal you lost is debatable.

On Sony unveils FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G OSS cinema lens article (104 comments in total)

That is a nice lens. If I was shooting full frame video that would be what I would chose. However, I can’t help but think that an M4/3 version of this lens could be F2.8 all the way through for the same size if not smaller.

In reply to:

Richard Murdey: Someone else said this on nikonrumors earlier, but I'll drop it here:

"The Nikon D750 is the best overall full-frame dSLR on the market today."

I think this is true, and I think Nikon is finally onto a winner here.

WOW! Then I guess I don't want Full frame then.

Why does Nikon advertise this as a "non-professional" camera? There is room to have multiple "Pro" cameras in Nikon's lineup.

Nope, I am saving up for Canon's announcement.

I am so confused by Nikon's naming convention. Is the D750 better than the D700? Is the D610 better than the D600 and the D750? What about the D7100? Is that lower than the D810?

This is probably a great Full frame camera. Too bad the market for people looking to buy a new full frame camera is shrinking.

"offering a faster frame-rate than any non-professional full-frame Nikon DSLR since the D700". That is a ton of caveats in that sentence. What they should have said is "Offers half the burst speed of most smaller sensor cameras".
