On article Just posted: Our Fujifilm X-M1 hands-on preview (117 comments in total)

I find it somewhat laughable that Fujifilm have copied the "M" from Leica rangefinders at the same time as using the M for their most simple model which in fact should be for the X-Pro1.
So what is the next joke from Fujifilm? Probably that the jpegs with badly smudged foliage still remain unchanged from previous models in the X-series? At least i might guess so unless they've some other bad card to play on..
I could have considered the X20 if it not had been for that very irritating flaw.
At least they've got the tilt-lcd right with the X-M1. Hope to see options with low NR included as well and I might test one.

A review first now - One year late. I've already had a D20 but returned it.

On article Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction (1852 comments in total)

Competitors like C1 are about to grow as Adobe feed them like this. The attitude of Adobe might need to grow a pair, away from this recently upcoming childishness not to lose users.

On article Pentax offers K-30 in a variety of colors and finishes (118 comments in total)

Almost as laughable and pathetic as Leica with all their nonsense white and whatever colours of their M-models.

Still same slow zoom. The Powershot D20 have a similar slow zoom though with better macro and no crazy NR. Time to wake up, Fujifilm, and follow in the footsteps of TG1 and Pentax WG-3 though with way lower NR!

Hopefully Canon improved the somewhat slow AF and also kept the Low NR from the SX260.

No lenses compatible with Fujifilm X or Samsung NX_mount eh? That's too bad as these two currently leads the pack.

On article Actual Pixels - the pixel peeping app for iOS (33 comments in total)

Rather, Actual Nightmare, app, as it reveals just how bad NR in the Iphone 5 is ;)
Iphone 4 and and 4S seem to be better, not to mention the Nokia N8 and PV 808.

On article Olympus USA announces XZ-10 enthusiast compact (45 comments in total)
In reply to:

AllOtherNamesTaken: 1/2.3" for $400? Pass. Again.

Yes. A similar waste like the Nikon Coolpix P300 and P310 which also had fast lens at the wide end but only 1/2.3" Cmos or Bsi-cmos.
At least the P310 wa a good improvement over the P300 with a new sensor, better jpeg engine and Nr Low as option which the P300 not had. But still, no raw. At least the XZ-10 offer raw.

In reply to:

schaki: Sounds great. That we finally get a 'PV 808' with WP8.
I've lost count of how mani times I for myself have cursed the headless decision of Nokia to stick with that old, outdated Symbian OS POS for a model like the 808 which had so held so much potential.

Maybe them should have given such a model decent hardware to run able WP8, then...

On article Samsung Galaxy Camera in-depth review (82 comments in total)

The usual Samsung detail-destruction NR. Hardly a surprise... How long can it possibly take until them learn from that mistake.

On article CP+ 2013: Interview with Olympus' Toshi Terada (242 comments in total)

Problem is that there is probably not many users left which still actively uses their E-4x0, 5x0. May be different for 600-users and diehard E-1, E-3 and E-5 users.
Many have may have made the switch to other dslrs which offered better high iso and Dr and maybe even switched to Olympus m4/3 or some other mirrorless system. The future in general for Dslrs aint looking very bright with the mirrorless system beginning to catch up in AF-speed which many of them still lagged behind.

On article Pentax launches WG-3 and WG-3 GPS waterproof cameras (66 comments in total)

Luckily the camera is probably going to be available in black also.
Same zoom as in Olympus TG-2 and likely same but a 16mp Bsi-Cmos compared to 12mp Bsi Cmos in TG-1 and TG-2.
Already wonder what of these which are going to use least Nr to preserve finedetails. The waterproof Pentaxes have not been good since the W90 which used too much NR. But the same can be said about most of the waterprof Olys too with the TG-1 as an exception.

In reply to:

slick83: Since I am in the market for rugged compact camera that will survive mu busy urban/rural life. I took my time to check Nikon's site for some details.

According to Nikon site:

-= Waterproof =-
* on camera body itself 18m/59ft:
http://cdn-4.nikon-cdn.com/en_INC/o/ET360lcITrS5AL5UdjBwI83CY_Y/Views/26412_AW110_front.png

* in specs sheet:
JIS/IEC protection class 8 (IPX8) equivalent (under our testing conditions)
Up to a depth of 5 m (16.4 ft) and for 60 minutes

link -> http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Compact-Digital-Cameras/26412/COOLPIX-AW110.html

Hmmm, I wonder, is it really 18m/59ft ?

As long as Image quality is high piority, the Olympus TG2 should be the best option unless they've gone crazy with the NR. Also the Canon Powershot D20 from last year is good, but the lens is slow already at the wide end.
Nikon AW100 was crap because of too much NR and I doubt that the new AW110 is better. But we might be in for a nice surprise if we are lucky.
