On Gariz leather half-case for Sony RX100 article (49 comments in total)

Gariz have been making some of the best cases for mirror-less cameras. I would say they are as good if not better than the OEM cases you can buy.

gl2k: Since we will never know the keepers rate this whole procedure tells us absolutely nothing.

Additionally ... will he ever tell the public how well (or not) the process of taking fast actions shots was ? I guess not.

You don't have to shoot many pictures to get good ones. Pick up a used book on photography 101.

Voting system like reddit would be great.

Did you guys change your logo to more of a teal color from blue?

DoctorJerry: I just wish you spent more resources on writing reviews. That is what made your site great. I fail to understand the lack of reviews done when it really matters, like as soon after a camera's release.

Were lens reviews harmed?

malcolm82: "The LX7 features a slightly smaller sensor than the LX5, allowing it to offer the brightest lens of any compact camera with a really impressive F1.4-2.3 24-90mm equivalent range."

That should read F7-11.5 24-90mm equivalent range, not quite as impressive compared to the F4.8-13 24-100mm equivalent range of the Sony rx100.

@malcolm82 I'm not great at educating but what you said in your original post is a half truth. This is a f1.4 lens and if it was .9 it would be even brighter (not better). Small sensors=deep DOF. If you like shallow go with a bigger sensor. Sony is still small, I would just buy a M9 since you seem to be so excited about DOF. I can not speak of its quality of the lens, but Leica does put there name on it..must be ok. Leica should also re-badge this camera soon with the red dot. As far as comparing it to the sony..it might come down to price. Image quality on the sony might be better also. I owned a LX3 and loved it, the person that bought it from me took it all over the world with great results. I expect the same from the LX7.

You are confused with the equivalent DOF of the lens. This is a very bright lens and it should be able to take a picture with the same shutter speed as a full frame camera at set ISO. There should be a small quiz before you can make a comment.

In reply to:

IcyVeins: Just wondering but why would you need f/2.8 for doing macro? Don't you usually want as much DOf as possible since you are focusing so close?

Anything you want to stand far away from. I'm sure its a great quality telephoto also.

Kodachrome200: What is the actual focal length range so I can get an idea of dof

If you want shallow DOF, just buy a GF3 for $329 with the included 14mm f2.5 lens.

peevee1: Somebody used a 32-bit int to represent the S/N... Who knew that somebody else decides to make the serial number not really serial (unless they really produced more that 2 Billion 60Ds). :)

I was just looking the word up lol. From Wiki: In scientific usage, a phenomenon is any event that is observable, however common it might be, even if it requires the use of instrumentation to observe, record, or compile data concerning it.

DotCom Editor: Astonishingly unrealistic pricing. I have Uwe's fine-art printing book (which is excellent), but I won't buy this e-book, not for $16.95. Come back to me when it drops to $6.95.

Optional original DNG image download of the sample images (extra fee)-----Did he just say extra fee for a few DNG images he took with his G9?!? lolz

$16.95 for a simple how to ebook? I would just pay the guys at luminous landscape a tad more and get 9 hours of video series on all parts of the software.

No ebook should be over $5 bucks.

Pro u4/3 video market? Canon video lenses are 40 grand, if this is good quality, i can see someone paying $2500 for it.

peevee1: That is fun, the mistake of giving D800 and 5D3 the same 82% was corrected. But - by giving D800E higher "Value" rating?

At my local food store, they always post items (10 mangoes for $10) Sounds like a good deal until you find out that a single mango is $1.

If Nikon is giving you more camera but charging you more...that is not better value. If anything its the same. Now, if they had the D800e at the same price...that is better value.

Also, I have a D800e on order and I think its worth the extra $300 and I thank Nikon for at least giving us that option.

5D mark III 82% Gold
D800 82% Gold

D800E 84% Gold (better IQ scores and better value?)

I agree with this, D800 should have better bang for the buck (aka value) than the D800E.
and/or
The D800E should have less or the same value since it only provides slight image quality for 10% more money.
