  • The LX7 was selling for $275 about 4-5 months after it came out. It stayed at that price on and off for almost a year and then went back up closer to $350-$400 more recently.

  • I guess I found the answer to my question. The LX100 and RX100 MK III are in the “Enthusiast Large Sensor Compact Camera” category. That actually makes sense because the small sensor is the biggest...

  • Just curious why the Panasonic LX100 and the Sony RX100 MK III are not listed in the same category as this camera. In fact I can’t find those cameras at all even when I check the “include all...

  • Just joking of course. Thank for all of your efforts here.

  • I am going to blame Allison Johnson for everything from now on because she told us to.

  • For clarity: This did not receive an award at all(No Gold or Silver), right? I see the score for the camera now but I wanted to make sure its award was not omitted accidentally like the score was...

  • I understand that user experience is very important. However, image quality is equally as important if not more important. The comparison images in this review show that the X30 does not produce...

  • This camera looks great when you compare it to almost 3 year old cameras like the LX7 that were half the price of the X30. However, when you compare it to modern cameras(Rx100 MK III and LX100) you...

  • Sadly it didn't receive a score at all.

  • I concur captain. I think there will be a firmware update for this camera in the future.
  • Commented on Fujifilm X100T Review preview

    That is a really expensive 35mm F2.0 prime lens.

  • Commented on Fujifilm X100T Review preview

    I absolutely love the Direct Aperture, exposure compensation, and Shutter speed control dials. However, I can get those exact same things on the Panasonic LX100.

    What I can’t live with is a fixed...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X100T Review preview

    Great, but when are you going to review the Fujifilm X100T?

    Oh wait! I guess I should actually read the reviews before I post.

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    If the T6s is rated higher and gets the Gold award then I will just stop looking at those sections all together.

    The content of the Dpreview reviews is just outstanding. However, their scoring...

  • I would love to see an example where 16 megapixels simply isn’t enough. Most kit lenses won’t even resolve that much detail. Dpreview had to resort to the “exotic” 42.5mm F1.2 lens to get...

  • It was questionable whether the RAW file actually adds more resolution over the 40 megapixel JPG images or not. Until last week there really weren’t any programs that could render the RAW files...

  • Look for the small craters at the top of the moon. They are only visible in the HR E-M5 MK II images even though the bottom image is technically the highest detail and cleanest image. If you put ...
  • The air conditions were outstanding this evening. I will try to post the videos I took that night to demonstrate this. Most of the time air conditions or “seeing” is the limiting factor. However, ...
  • That one is technically the highest resolution image. I believe that was the only one of them that was taken with my old 4 inch Vixen SCT telescope. It was a brilliant little scope for the moon ...
