Time for Sony to come up with an RX-W. Micro-sensored waterproof cams are so dated ...

In reply to:

eddie_cam: When comparing to the Tamron 16-300/3.5-6.3, feature-wise the FZ1000 beats the Tamron hands-down, costing not so much more, plus you get a 4K cam thrown in. Yeah, the sensor is smaller in the FZ1000, but shallow DOF is not always needed.

@dpreview: Please do a comparison with the Tamron! Would love to see what the FZ1000 can do in the IQ department. ;-)

I know, but it would be a plus for the FZ1000, for those of us who want to make an informed decision.

In reply to:

eddie_cam: Why is 800x600 stated when the EVF resolution is 1.44 MP, actually XGA?

Thanks, BarnET, for clearing that up. I always forget multiplying with 3.

On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (597 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ivan Azzopardi: From past experience J1 and V1 Image Quality "IQ" is not that good just better than compacts. They were 10mp and they suffer a lot from noise now 18mp?? For small prints they where acceptable. One good point I never went to clean the sensor a good point due to the very small sensor. Hope it will get better IQ. EXT flash same as the dslrs another good point. Now we have to wait and see.

Sample photos can be seen here:

No 4K video? Are you working with Panasonic, Nikon?

So, applying the grip, you won't be able to change battery. You haven't learned anything, have you, Nikon?

V3+EVF? Might be too expensive for most of us (for what it might be). Wishing for a V1 firmware update then, in order to put the 70-300 lens to good use. ;-)

Why no 24-60 or 24-75 mm eq. pancake lens? I don't get it.

The new 70-300 zoom might get my interest when:
- no shutter shock (compared to Olympus)
- outstanding VR
- better AF-C (which should be no big deal in the 1 system)
- price at around 700 bucks (after a few months)

And, yeah, milking the customers is all the rage right now. I wonder how much money you must set back for the V3+EVF+grip+70-300 - 2000+ bucks? That would be ridiculous. For that amount of money I could dabble in several systems (DSLR included).

On Sony Alpha 7R Review preview (807 comments in total)

If you need the buffer, JPEG smearing (look at page 15, high ISOs) is quite a drawback. I hope Sony will offer a firmware update with less JPEG smearing at NR=low.

Good to know - thank you!

... and even if they manage to get the best out of almost nothing: manufacturers might find ways to make us pay top dollar for this tech, e.g. CSC lenses. ;-)
