On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (546 comments in total)
In reply to:

Miki Nemeth: I'd be very much surprised, if the in-focus hit rate of this camera at 15fps on a moving subject would be better than 1 fps. Exactly like A6000, and any other mirrorless cameras. This is the thousandth announcement from a mirrorless maker that they solved the problem of efficient AF-C. Since I don't believe AF on mirrorless cameras, I wonder how efficiently focus peaking is implemented in NX1? Does it support touch-to-magnify? All during video recording? Is the screen/EVF fast enough for focus peaking ((moderately) fast) moving subjects, while shooting MF 15fps? The worst scenario would be to get an NX1 with crappy AF-C (100 fps/1000 cross AF point mean nothing) as well as crappy focus peaking for moving subjects. I hope I am wrong.

I have the GH4 and continous AF really works at 7.5 fps, I got over 90% in focus shots. There are times when it completely misses a burst, so it's not that reliable as a dslr but it does work well. And yes, that's with a telephoto lens.

In reply to:

lacikuss: Canon nailed it!

Excellent for 90% of point and shoot users (who don't care about EVF but do care about 100mm reach),

not so for 5% of users who want to take this as a dslr substitute for travel (these care about EVF and don't care about 100mm),

and meaningless for the last 5% who just can't compromise between EVF or 100mm.

That sound right. Except that those 90% P&S users don't buy this kind of camera. Even Sony told us that. This cameras are mostly step down (in size for dslrs and serious amators) than step up (for P&S shooters)

In reply to:

beavertown: Strange DXO Mark always bashes Canon's sensors. But the 5D Mark III produces better IQ than the newly released D810 in terms of colours, sharpness, noise performance both in JPG and RAW.

As much as I love the Mark III, it doesn't even come close in any IQ aspect to the D800

I'm having so much fun reading Francis Carver bs, every time a new idiot rises above all others idiots. I bet he's no more than 15.

Anyway, can't wait to get my hands on this camera.

Well done, Olympus, now can we have 25p/50p for us in PAL country ? 30p videos look very weird on a 50HZ TV

mick232: Full-frame has reached the consumer market. If there was still any doubt about that, here's the proof.

In film days, even cheap plastic disposable cameras were full frame.

In reply to:

d3xmeister: They made something wonderful and they screwed it up with the stupid dial locks. What kind of an idiot bump a dial out of position and does not notice when the dial is right in its face ? The kind of idiot who has no ideea what is doing, but somehow these idiots have managed to screw things for all of us.

Here's an ideea: Turn off your camera while it is in a bag !!!! Here's another one: Glimpse at your setting before you shoot !!! Here's yet another one: Don't buy a camera with a faulty dial !!! Or take it back if it's loose ! I never ever accidentally bumped a dial and I owned and used a LOT of cameras.

On Fujifilm teases upcoming SLR-style X system camera article (921 comments in total)

I love that Fuji, Pentax, Olympus and Panasonic are teaching Nikon and Canon how to design cameras. But Fuji really is on top of the game.

On Tamas Dezso offers glimpse into post-Communist Romania article (238 comments in total)

I'm romanian. The images are very nice, and I don't find them offensive. That said, nowadays you really have to travel a lot and look hard to find such things. These picture kinnda illustrate romania between 1992-1997.

And this will be the official death of most APS-C dslrs. Unless Nikon and Canon decide to learn from Pentax and really support their apsc cameras with lenses, features an ergonomics at pro levels they are doomed much quicker than we thought.

In reply to:

vFunct: Nikon makes the best cameras - better than Canon.

Nothing else is even in the same league.

Whenever I go to a press event, all the professional photographers are using Nikon or Canon.

There is absolutely nothing else.

Mirrorless cameras are garbage, strictly used by amateurs that do not know professional photography.

This new Nikon is just icing on their top-shelf cake.

Are you on this planet ?

In reply to:

HeyItsJoel: I'll never understand why Nikon insist on starting their kit lenses at 18mm when the ideal length to start is @ 16mm (~24mm fov).

I prefer 28mm to 24mm, maybe because that's what I had in the film days. Had a few 24mm but still fell mor confortable with 28mm

On Sony Cyber-shot RX1R Samples Gallery Expanded! article (70 comments in total)

Not really impressed. I have cheap DX lenses with better CA performance, and my D5100 is almost matching this camera's high iso performance. When I'll see clean ISO 6400 I'll be impressed.

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)
In reply to:

cheddargav: When I can trust a small camera like this in 99.9% of situations I'll be all over it. Until then they will continue to be great for family days out and street mooching, plus as a 3rd camera at events. DSLR's are better in most situations tho.
When will the "5 reasons are shoot mostly with DSLR's" article be written? :0)

Wow, DSLR's are better ? Really ? But I don't see anybody arguing that DSLR aren't better. Sure they are. That's not the point, in any way.
What format do you use for listening music ? Let me guess, .mp3 like 95% of people ? I use only 24 bit .wav and only listen on Apogee converters, because, you know, it is better than .mp3 and onboard sound.

See the point now ? We have reached a point where a small non-DSLR camera is more than enough for anybody (except professionals and serious hobbyists)

In reply to:

G Davidson: So this kind of card could be the fix for cameras with a fast shooting speed, but too small a cache memory? (I'm thinking of the D7100 here).

Could be. I remember one user tested the D7100 without an SD card in it and it just burst away at 6 fps forever.

In reply to:

itsastickup: For photographers, the crucial Dxo report will be in to the HTC One and its APS-C photosites and dynamic range. Until that comes no decision on a smartphone is really possible.

That's, right, you can put full frame pixels in a 2MP camera phone, the image will be camera phone quality, maybe even worse.
Sensor size is what matter, to put it simply to you: What amount of light is used to produce the photo ? If you take a half sensor for example, it will capture about half of the amount of light. You can make it 1MP, it will actually make the photo worse, since resolution does matter when it comes to image quality, and the amount of light captured will still be half.
