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.
Still something wrong at DPR. But what is it? Most camera's get final reviews before actual release dates, the GH line get final reviews when the NEXT GH in line is presented. What's wrong?
The D800 "and a half" gets 8 pages of "early-impression-like-it-a-lot-and-this-could be-the-gamechanger -NOT- and-is-a-really-boring-camera-update-in-dinosaur country". There is more on the FZ1000 already a month before release! Come on ;).
But hey, why bother? IR has done it already (for 90%).
This is really amazing for 3200 iso! Even making me doubt the 3200 tagging here.
It sadly won't change the way DPR rates the pen. The ratings are just that, ratings. Ever had the increasing feeling that the ratings are strongly influenced by personal bias?
abortabort: The mirrorless OEMs should have done something like this, rather than bringing out all these tiny mirrorless cams and only gigantor flash units. They make bodies smaller, lenses smaller and flashes... well the same monstrosities as they've always been.
The FL600r is 255 grams without batteries.And 6.1 x 10.4 x 2.8 cm.The nissin is 203 grams without batteries.And 85(H)x61(W)x85(D)mm
at least the body to lens ratio didn't get worse ! LOL
Excellent sample shot! Does away with the nay sayers of the EZ kitlens. Sharp across the board!
Now THIS is a major!!
included: Wireless TTL mode; Supports up to 1/8,000 seconds shutter speed

DPR does a very good job on the reports of the show! Really like what is presented here! Thank you DPR!
Some of the minor quibbles:G1 X Mark II, "It sports a near-SLR-sized sensor" is a hyperbolic statement. Read this first: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/0528662139/canon-powershot-g1-x-mark-ii-a-quick-summary
rocklobster: It's hugely dissappointing to keep hearing about how complex it is to enable the SCP or to change any other configuration parameters. Anybody who has owened a recent Olympus camera will find it quickly and for anyone else there are the forums. This is not a deal breaker by any stretch...
In EU, I related to 3 sellers in person. All three showed the SCP was ON by default in the EM10!
Price is relative only, unless it is extreme. You can NOT compare it to ANYTHING else on the market at the moment. This is a gamechanger. Most will know this after it has been widely acknowledged. And did I hear ZEISS or sealed, macro 0.45-0.38 ?
The one to replace R1 at last.
So, Sony said: let's introduce a very very cheap cam that can take very very good pictures. And DPR says: oh noooo, IT is a very cheap cam. Stear clear of this One. Nice One DPR. But Ama won't like this.
a decent sensor? seriously?dpr lost it completely here. strange bias.this sensor already proved to be the best apsc sensor out there.
