It's less about the hardware, it's more about the software.Most likely there is DXO software inside this Phone also. Just curious.
OK, nice idea. Alway nice to see new plans. There is soo much available already. Have you seen this?http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Triple-LED-Magic-Arm-Background-Light-fr-Macro-Photography-Macrophotography-/281189203997?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item41782ec01d
Nice and compact, with undoubtedly great IQ on the go! With the battery pack as an (expensive ;( ) option.
Overall well done Canon!
pacnwhobbyist: The Panasonic ZS50 seems like, on paper, a better camera than either of these will be.
oops! Sorry Carl ;)
IR states: "If you want to tweak your images further in-camera, the Sony HX90V provides contrast, saturation, sharpness and creative style options prior to capture."
Hi Carl, where did you get the "no jpeg adjustments" part?
Canon is still King....... in Hyperbole. Blah Blah is the part where Canon is still King. Hyperbolic to say the least. Perhaps a lateral career move from press to product could change this. Just joking.
panpen: $1100 for a camera with a tiny sensor when you can get a Sony full frame for only $100 more? No thank you.
Thanks! Had a good laugh, the Hurley, Dennett and Adams way. Detection of mistaken reasoning?
Horses for courses. I had a good set of Nex 6 en A 6000 and a set of glass and flash. When the OMD EM10 came out, I grabbed it and sold off the S* set at once and not looking back. The RAW support in camera makes a world of difference.
The low iso shots with limited latitude show some nice results. But even my smartphone could do this now. Those with more DR are showing the sensor for what it is. *just acceptable*. BTW most outside shots with some sky are badly overexposed. There are 1 year old sensors of the same size playing around that do better in DR. Printing on A-4 already makes a huge difference. There is one in Mike's shortlist. Plus one for Mike's suggestion.
If looking at 100% on screen is your thing, the "less pixels is more" is usefull. If printing, at any size above A-4 is your thing, it is NOT.
Very nice set of shots. Great work DPR! It shows the constant overexposure nicely. Burnt out a lot of detail.
There is not to much in it, between the RAW and JPEG. Highlights and shadows are nearly on par. The RAW conversion could do with a tad more sharpening. Will print nicely. For me Panasonic did something very good at last with this JPEG. Very nice.
Seriously this kind of round-ups is only meant to generate traffic. huh? Oops, this contributes also.Oh well, the X30 has an un-updated sensor but the IQ is good. The EVF is solid!? Perhaps stellar would be the better word. Sooo 2012 all this rummaging about opinions. It's only the opinion of some people that seem to have a working relation with this once wonderfull place called DPReview. Time for a change to DPOpinion? Excluding RX100.. and including the ...tiny... FZ in this ...compact class... is obviously only done to generate more ... you get my drift ... traffic.
still .... nothing. oh well what's new?
All wifi enabled cams have a perfect and free and flexible second screen nowadays. It's called the smartphone. Time for a new perspective?
Built in flash doing wireless would be nice! Touch and swivelscreen. Separate EVF, tele macro, some kind of wheatersealing. Room for an OLY XZ 100 then?
Very, very nice inspirational write up! This kind of articles make me come to DPR! Thanks so much. Wondering about your feelings about the sling-bag contraptions. For me these are the most convenient. From the tiny (canon 300-eg, for a complete m4/3 set) to the rather large Lowepro slings that take it all. Takes the weight of my shoulders, leaves 2 hands free, in front they give great acces to the major parts with quick release locks and zippers.
"The built-in OIS (optical image stabilization) mechanism delivers an image stabilizing effect equivalent to 3.0-stop*4 and is extremely effective in preventing blurring caused by camera shake or subject movement". Snipped from the fujifim dot com site. Huh?
"Compact" redefined. But why no serious review of the Stylus 1?
Excellent info! Thanks so much for this.
