Okay, so when is the fire sale for the NX1? I'll help them out with their sales, if they cut the price. So will you.
Well, if it's true, I'm going to wait for the fire sale on the NX1. Wait a minute, I have a Sony A7RII, I don't need an NX1. Then again, if it's cheap enough...
Canon double-speak to avoid the inevitable. It is not really about "market shrinkage". It is all about maintaining "market share". And Canon is failing at this. As long as the exceptional mirrorless cameras and camera innovations continue with Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, and Fujifilm, Canon (and even Nikon) will be in greater trouble, and will continue to see their "market share" shrink. That is a fact. (And Canon's new mirrorless products are very underwhelming with no real innovation.)
Zvonimir Tosic: Kill Kodak, you kill film photography. Kill Sony, you kill digital imaging. I would not be surprised if Kodak was not deliberately sabotaged and expropriated, at least to an extent. So when one day Sony Imaging goes bust in the deflationary economy, like Kodak did, imaging industry goes the way of film, at an accelerated pace.And we are back to the drawing board, pencil and pen. So we should invest in Steadtler's and Faber Castel's shares? :-)
That is no logic at all. The film industry was nearly going under due to the rise of digital cameras/photography. As a result, Kodak took a major hit. That coupled with poor management decisions led to its demise. Fuji also suffered as film demand declined, but have managed to make the successful transition to digital (and with Kodak gone, Fuji has a lock on film sales). Is digital photography going under? Absolutely not. So why would Sony's sensor business suffer. In fact, the opposite I true. They control much of the sensor market and that is the present and future of photography.
Sounds to me like the FZ1000 is a winner at about HALF the price. I should know, I own one. Even DPR is hard-pressed to find much fault with it.
Actually, this camera may have the potential to shoot 3D.
MBell: What about the Dpreview of the A7Rii? The camera has been out for almost two months. Almost as though Sony has told DPreview to hold off!
Hey, Rishi, what is really important here - a camera or a new wife? Get your priorities in order and take care of our beloved A7RII.(I just hope my wife doesn't see this post). <smile>
ozturert: Is the plane picture really sharp? I understand that there is haze effect but still I cannot call it sharp.I cannot understand why people keep saying "1" sensor from Sony is excellent". Well, it's OK at most. It's good enough but definitely not "excellent". I'd prefer a 1" 10MP Sony sensor. This 20MP sensor looks as if there is always some noise reduction which kills smaller details.Or maybe it's just me...
Actually, use the Pany FZ1000 and it will be sharp.
And why would I buy this rather than the Pany FZ1000 for a lot less?
Sticking with my 4K, longer zoom Panasonic FZ1000, which I bought new for $679. I'm happy.
Edgar_in_Indy: Are we NEVER going to get an ILC body with image stabilization AND 4k???
Yes, it's called the Panasonic GX8. You'll get IBIS and 4K. You read it here first.
tompabes2: The problem with this camera is that to take a picture you'll have to:
1) find the phone, it's in one of your pockets2) unlock it3) find the camera, it's in another pocket, or in a backpack or handbag.
At this point, your subject's smile has already turned into an annoyed expression.
4) slide down the lens cap5) open the connector6) try to put the connector in the tiny iphone's connector, while you're holdin the phone with one hand, the camera with the other, and your handbag in your mouth
At this point, your girlfriend, child, dog or cat has gone away and started doing other things. The sun that was in a perfect sunset position has faded beyond the mountain, and so on.
7) unlock the phone again, because it took you so much to connect the camera that the phone has locked8) open the app and take a picture of an empty background, because your subject isn't there anymore.
You clearly have waaaay too much time on your hands.
Fabio Amodeo: First point: mirrorless (or whatever they call them) are up. True, more in Asia, quite in Europe, not so much in the USA. But still true.Second point: mirrorless are earning money. True, maybe. The industry has gone from “with these numbers next year we'll go bankrupt” to “with these nunbers we might survive”.Third point: all mirrorless are unfinished work. What they still need is a huge advance in processing power/reading speed of the sensor. Let's talk when the work is finished (if the cameras will be able to disperse the heat involved).
Fabio - Capisce?
Geekapoo: If/when Sony sells a mirrorless camera with good low light AF, I won't quickly get rid of their camera like I did with the A7ii.
That is just not true.
Peiasdf: Also want to point out NX1 got a well deserved Gold Award for most improvement over earlier Samsung and also challenged the established cameras on market. For those people calling for E-M5II to get a Gold, ask yourself if II is a huge improvement over I and does it fundamentally change the dynamic with GH4, GX7, a6000, X-T1. Frankly in this light, I would give M5II a bronze.
Fortunately, no one will take what you say seriously. You have never used an E-M5 or E-M5II, so your opinion holds no merit.
Sangster: Retro design is nice except proportionally the glass on that kit lens looks a bit small relative to the body.
Can't wait to see the test results on the new BSI 1" sensor.
It's probably the Sony sensor.
SmilerGrogan: I'm confused. Was this video shot on an EM5?
What, Barney? You didn't use the GH4?
DRNottage: That's all fine, but when you're a working pro with a significant investment in a system like Canon (warts and all), one can't justify blowing cash on luxury items like Fuji's machines. (More money than brains?;) Yes, great lenses. I'm sure many love them. Or- love from afar, as I do.
Luxury items? What kind of a statement is that. You know very little about Fuji's cameras.
art99: Where is the 4K in this camera? a new model without the 4K? You gotta be kidding'
You have to be kidding. Even the Fuji X-cameras (great cameras) do not have 4K.
AKH: IQ is not very good for such an expensive camera. Made me think of the images presented in a resent review here on Dpreview of the Fuji 16-55mm with the Fuji X-Pro1. Those images were in a completely different league.
The IQ is actually very good for such a reasonably priced camera. You have obviously never used an OM-D camera.
