Karateka: Hi, im still not sure if buying the a6000 or panasonic gx7. I need it for vacation, children, it should be good in low-light and at least fit in a jacket.
I actually prefer the a6000 so far cause better grip, larger sensor and the gx7 is supposed to use too low shutter speed at Aperture mode.However, i realised on ,,new comparison tool'' that the red/blue colour-stripes from the puppets at iso 3200/low-light still have full contrast with gx7, the sony is like mud....Also the autofocus is said to be better on the gx7. There is also a touchscreen (really big advantage?) and it has an electronic noiseless shutter.
In terms of lenses the mft may be a bit smaller but i dont think its a big deal, price is almost the same i think. I wont buy huge bunch of lenses anyway, probably the sel 20 2.8 and the sel 35 1.8 for the sony.
Can anybody give me a hint or has anybod used both cameras?
I really would appreciate that, thanks.
same situation here. the a6000 is really a steal for €500. the lenses though... other than 1.8/35 and 1.8/24 (price: ouch!) i did not find a lens i fell in love. the 2.8/20 you mentioned seems like a better option (or 2.8/19 Sigma).
pro-GX7 for me would be in camera stabilizer and the silent shutter. plus if i would buy into m43s, i would not sell lenses anytime soon.
tecnoworld: This morning I had the opportunity to test this camera for about one hour (formerly I tried it in shop only). The af is impressive to say the least, compared to my Samsung nx300 (even with its fastest lenses on, like myn16-50 f2-2.8). I was able to lock focus on a passing biker and on a flying bird, with great precision. Also the buffer is great (the one of nx300 is ridiculous).
The evf is not as good as the one in x-e2, but does not show rainbows as the one in nx30 does.
I don't like the lack of a touch screen. I use it for focus point setting only, but that is handy. The rear display is about at the same level (quite low) of my nx300. Not visible in sunlight. But a6000 has evf, so it's fine.
I love the form factor, feels great in hands and during use.
I'm still perplexed about lens offering by Sony. Some good but expensive ones, many not so good ones.
watched the Fong review. This was the worst review i watched a long time ago. I don't even want to investigate if he is a good photographer. even advertisements can be better than this.
Cagey75: Seriously, not having a touch screen is a con these days?? Is this for photography or posting to facebook ffs!
touch screen -> quick focus selection. major pro in my opinion. like a dedicated button.
and it is not for facebook, ffs Cagey75
dervalrobert: Is there a way that the camera shoot whit a delay so that I can be in the picture??
@dervalrobert you have to be kidding...did you ever use a camera before?
LukeDuciel: All my curiosity in to the camera went away when I clicked on the sample photos...
even the "hi-res" 40MP photos seem to have less real detail vs. my X100s.
course! it has to be because ASPC simply is better than m43. forever!sensor size, you know? physics'n'sh*t, for real... everybody knows.
TorHA: The electronic viewfinder cannot be used with polarized sunglasses? It blackens out, presumably? That's a terrible disappointment. For me that's a complete showstopper. I must use sunglasses outdoors, unless it's quite cloudy. I can't take them off. That's not a problem for the one camera I own with an EVF (the DSLR of course is no problem).
I had high hopes for this camera. If its viewfinder is polarized then that goes out the window.
WTF did i just read?
Mike FL: "This image was shot tripod-mounted using high-res mode".
- tripod-mounted. Of course- In the cave = zero air movement to De-stabilizing the tripod/camera- Object stone = you know what it means
Do you missing something?
yes, he might have edited the sense away?
naththo: Not as good as old EM1 imo. I have seen nice example of EM1 better than this new one with ridiculous colour tone of green skies rather than blue skies, something so wrong with either RAW or JPEG engine. Or even sensor Demosaicing is up to no good.
you right!e-m1 best camera in whole caveland!e-m5 II bad and dangerous!smash e-m5 II and those cavemen that like e-m5, they bad and dangerous too...
robogobo: What a completely useless exercise.
no, to use a FF canon with a 24 - 70 L attached might be useless exercise for many people
spontaneousservices: If it's really for "manual everything" photographers, where's the dedicated ISO wheel? Still the old film mindset, amazing, really. So many years after film disappeared from the camera body, changing ISO is still more involved than changing shutter speed or aperture. But what would really make me buy such a camera (more than flip screen or ISO wheel) is a fixed 50mm equivalent lens. Sigh. Maybe one day...
i don't get it why 35mm FOV is boring...when exactly in this discussion did we lose the importance of the photographer on the photo?
caravan: Well done Fuji ! again they are leading from the front,proving how worthless and unnecessary zooms are on compact cameras.
also, fuji kind of lives of their compact cameras that have (super)zoom. look at their S-lineup. many people buy that
Mr N: Hello everyone, I've always wanted to buy the Fujifilm X100 series camera ever since they had come out. I was in college back then and it was out of my price range, and so I kept putting it off forever. I am an architect but mostly I take street photography and some architecture details (barely to be honest), could any of you guys give me a thumbs up if you think I should just go for it instead of any other camera for my use ? I know I won't be able to take wide angle shots but that's okay, I never photograph an entire building only parts of it. Thanks in advance, also the colour in the beta sample gallery seems weird, I hope I can change this, any X100 series users out there., some input would be great.
while it is true what you say about worse iso performance, you won't believe that people really can live with it!
J2Gphoto: This Fuji got my attention and I was giving it serious thought. Like I posted before I like the Olympus lens line up better. But now after reading Steve Huff's review of it and seeing the SOOC JPEG's and several other things he said the E-M1 does much better I am now convinced the E-M1 will be my next system. I'd advise anyone considering this camera to read Steve's review. He never pulls punches and gives honest real world use reviews.
we want to have good and reliable reviews about products, some of that cost thousands of dollars... (thank you DPReview Team BTW!!!)
but of course we want to have it FOR FREE!hello?
for me it's ok that steve and ken use their websites as part of their income. we don't HAVE TO VISITbut i do! because i like to get information about stuff i find interesting. the more the better.
and personally i love steve huffs reviews. they are fun most of the time and he is sort of grounded when he asks you in the reviews: "Do you think you need this?" and he might have some f0.95 lenses for his m43 cameras, but he repeats it all the time: olympus 2/12, 1.8/17 and 1.8/45 besides the voigtlanders... and he convinced me about smaller-than-FF cameras. For example i do have a nikon V1, a "toy" camera but for me it (almost) does everything i need.
KakoW: In need of a new camera, I went to the store today to try it out.
I was blown away : it offers full manual control in a small package and a very impressive IS. With the 17 f1.8 it handles well.
My GF didn't like it. The grip is short and shallow. She voted for the X-T1. She felt the E-M10 requires an aperture ring, since your left hand rests under the lens.
Try it before you buy it, is what I'm trying to say.
what's wrong with his old one?
kadardr: Why do I like the Nikon 1 system? It has a unique mix of characteristics.1. Unobtrusive design, pretends to be a small P&S. No attention drawer.2. Totally noiseless operation with the electronic shutter. Stealth shooting, great candids.3. Blazing fast AF, which is also very accurate, if you choose the right method depending on the situation. (actually the small sensor does not require the accuracy of an FX system) 4.Bewilderingly fast burst mode.5. Great lenses. My favorites are the 18.5mm, 30-110mm and the 6.7- 13mm.6. Great video. I use it for GIF making only.7. Great raw quality. Great colors, sharpness and all. Very intuitive UI (even the V1).
Nikon 1s are the all time companion camera to me. I will get the V3 for sure.
i'm with you. silent operation is what mirrorless should really be for me. so i will stick to my unobtrusive and fast V1. i was tempted with the V3, but for that price: combined with 6.7-13 and 32mm lenses, i would still pay 1900 euro...
so i will keep my V1 with 10mm and 18.5mm in my backpack for light stuff and get a GH4, which is more expensive of course, but does handle the stuff i do much better and works silent too. Plus m43 for me feels a little bit like open source. no more nikon 1 stuff for me, sorry...
CameraLabTester: I like Nikon cameras and their innovative gear.
I like the Nikon brand.
But there is something REALLY WRONG with this camera system.
Nikon is not listening.
It is trying to feed "good enough" fodder to the innocent masses with mumbo jumbo technical word spins to regurgitate redundant features.
The whole system is an ergonomic design nightmare.
no, nikon does not listen because it is their policy. really, i work with nikon microscopes and even their technicians are amazed of nikons i-don't-take-input-from-you strategy, and that goes from top to bottom...
flatrion: Where is the 'T' comes from ? It does not resemble Contax T, it is not made of titanium.
i like raw images, i really do. sometimes, they can allow for jaw-dropping adjustments.but most often they don't.i get it, you are professional, but you won't see a paradigm-shift increase in quality with DNGs from any camera.
fdfgdfgdgf: Flat IQ and colorsNikon D3300/5300 outperform it by a leap.
They need to move to APSC, then it will challenge DSLR's
so i assume you have a nikon DSLR and feel threatened?
Sad Joe: PLUS: Nice new cheaper OM model. CONS: Perhaps they should speak with their pals at Panasonic about video before bringing out anymore...
right. your opinion. everyone's got one...
i disagree. the E-M10 does not "need" an aperture ring. though it is nice to have one with the fuji lenses, people might see it as a must have, which is odd. for example: with the 25/1.8 prime, your left hand is not needed to stabilize a E-M10, because it is that light! and my right hand can do all the adjusting
