On Ricoh surfs into action camera market with WG-M1 article (106 comments in total)

Sorry 1080p @ 30 FPS won’t cut it. 1080p @ 60 FPS is the bare minimum for wearable action cameras. After today you will never hear anything about this camera again.

Is this a global electronic shutter?

That is just about as good as a fixed lens 35mm F2.0 camera could get.

JamesD28: 1/32000sec min. shutter speed? Can someone please give real-world examples where that would be useful?

F1.4 in bright sunlight requires 1/32000. Unfortunately this is a fixed lens camera at F2.0 so I am not sure you would need it.

Looks like Fuji listened to their customers. This camera may not be everyone. However, it will definitely please Fuji enthusiasts.

First off Auto Focus isn't the problem with camera phones. The sensors are way to small to give you shallow depth of field especially with an F2.2 wide angle lens.

The issue is aperture and low light. That small of a sensor with small pixels is a recipe for disaster in low light. Any camera can do well in sunlight. I need one to do well indoors.

How much bigger is this sensor? The article doesn't say what size it is.

On Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm article (336 comments in total)

I can't fathom this lens being worth 10 times what a good Nikon 85mm F1.4 is worth. It may be better but it isn't 20 times better.

mpgxsvcd: You had me until "Manual Focus". Manual Focus would be great for the interior architecture shots that this lens was intended for. However, I need it for low light action shots which really require good AFF.

"How many video shooters use AF?"

Everyone who has tried the GH4 and wants to shoot AF.

The Note Edge has peeked my interest. I am going to wait for that one.

I wanted to hate on this camera but quite simply there is nothing to hate about it. It isn't a camera I would buy but if I wanted an external camera for my phone this is what I would buy.

Fire Sale?

When I took apart a T5i I was surprised that the sensor was no better than the one in a T2i. That made me angry.

Canon marks the 6 year anniversary of their last great sensor technology improvement (5D Mark II).

Please Canon do something spectacular at PhotoKina this year. I remember a time when we read the Canon announcements to see what great new technology would be added to their cameras instead of reading the announcements to see what witty comments people would have.

On Olympus PEN E-PL7 First Impressions Review preview (432 comments in total)

Not a ton to praise here but also not a lot to hate on. A nice solid little camera. I still think the Olympus E-PM2 is a better value at $170.

I applaud Richard for taking a chance and trying something new. However, this simply just didn't work. These cameras are completely unrelated and they each deserved their own review.

On Opinion: Do we really need the Fuji X30? article (304 comments in total)

I don’t need any new cameras at all. I have a Panasonic GH4 and a bag full of lenses. I am all set. However, my friends and family are all having babies now and they want a decent camera. They are never going to mess with changing lenses so a compact camera with a fast lens is what they need.

They will all buy whatever I recommend to them. I am leaning towards the upcoming LX8 but this is not a bad effort from Fuji. I just wish Canon had a decent offering in this large sensor small camera category. It would be a much easier sell if I could recommend a Canon because everyone knows that name.

On Fujifilm X30 First Impressions Review preview (365 comments in total)

If it has a smaller sensor with better performance are you still going to complain about the sensor size? The difference in depth of field going from a 2/3” sensor to a 1” inch sensor is not significant when you factor in the fact that the lens would have to be slower to be the same size.

If Fuji can produce high quality images with a smaller sensor then I am all for it. In the past they have had smaller sensors that do exactly that. I hope that is the case with this camera.

No matter what you do someone will complain. If you use a 2/3" sensor then some people will want 1" or 4/3" or Bigger.

If you include a viewfinder then some people will complain that they don't want the extra size or cost. If you leave it out some people will say it is an absolute necessity.

No one camera can fit everyone's needs. Instead these manufactures should concentrate on making several models that are all similar cameras with different options packages. If you make a few different packages with the most common features then people won't have to explore other cameras to get what they want.

The point is that you don't want to give buyers a reason NOT to buy your camera. If you give them choices then they won't complain about not getting what they want or don't want.

I would love to see them announce a small camera with a bright lens and a limited zoom without a viewfinder but with a flash. Then also have almost the same camera with a viewfinder and more manual controls.
