  • If it's not Scottish, it's crap!

  • Personally, I prefer a tilting LCD. I would never buy a camera with a side-hinge viewscreen. I can't imagine taking pictures with this big wing hanging out the side. On the other hand, with a tilt...

  • The price of the small size is the absence of a viewfinder, a price many, including me, are willing to pay.

    Viewfinders are nice, no doubt; the Fuji X100S is a good example of a camera which...

  • I like the X100S, but I prefer a 50mm lens. So I'll put the teleconverter my X100S and leave it on. If Fuji comes out with an X100S with a 50mm built-in, that would be my ideal camera. Lacking...

  • That's the problem. The existing lens is too small. The teleconverter makes the camera much more impressive.

  • Prolly 'cause it's a compact camera with a fixed lens. Everyone is gaga about "system" cameras with interchangable lens. True, you can get the Sony a6000 for the same price, but with a comparable...
  • I like the styling. We'll have to wait for testing to see if the image stabilization is better than other brand compact travel zooms. If so, then the SH-1 could well be the best option for this...

  • Commented on Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview

    I don't understand why so many people think that the camera companies could make much better cameras for the same price but chose not to. I don't think any company can stay in business unless it...

  • Commented on Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview

    I was going to get the Sony RX-10 until Canon came out with the GX 1 Mk II. It has a sensor twice as big as the RX-10 in a relatively compact package. While the GX 1 zoom power is less than the...

  • OK, here's a question abut comparing the GX1 Mk. II with the Sony RX10.
    With a bigger sensor, the Canon should outperform the RX10 at least up to the limits of the GX1's lens zoom, 120mm. At what...

  • I don't think so, else why would people use telephoto lens at all? The teleconverter, to my understanding, is another lens which magnifies the actual image reaching the sensor. Cropping has the...

  • Will this be 50mm equivalent, or 50mm x 1.5, for a 75mm equivalent?

  • Most of the comments here are ignoring what's new and noteworthy about this camera: the sensor size and aperture range. Presumably this will allow it to compete well, in terms of IQ, with a wide...

  • I was somewhat surprised that just one or two negative reviews would have any significant impact on sales. I always discount negative reviews when there are only 2 or 3.

    I was also surprised that...
