In reply to:

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.

In reply to:

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.

On #1 in France: Hands-on with DxO ONE article (238 comments in total)
In reply to:

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 pockets
2) unlock it
3) 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 cap
5) open the connector
6) 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 locked
8) 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.

On Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge article (732 comments in total)
In reply to:

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?

In reply to:

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.

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1252 comments in total)
In reply to:

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.

On Nikon 1 J5 offers 20.8MP BSI sensor and revamped look article (152 comments in total)
In reply to:

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?

In reply to:

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.

In reply to:

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.

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1392 comments in total)
In reply to:

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.

In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: Interestingly, Pentax representative said that they have already experimented with sensor shift technology to achieve same goal as this, now advertised by Olympus (and Hassy in the past). But, Pentax admits, the result is a large size dataset, plenty of megapickles, but the quality of the picture does not improve.
So instead of delivering that — which obviously is not difficult — they would rather focus how to make native resolution even better.

Which is interesting, as it better sheds light on what Olympus really wants to achieve: a perception that their small cameras (which are indeed limited by sensor size and performance worse that others), are also competitors when it comes to large image sizes.

Raist3d - That is not true about Pentax having multi-axis IBIS long before Oly. Prove it.

Canon is just too paranoid about their dSLR sales in the US. Heaven forbid if this camera were launched in the US and actually sold well enough, thus affecting their dSLR sales volume. Now, we can't have that, can we?

Hmmm...let's see, I can buy an SUV for that amount of money. Sheesh!

On Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup (2014) article (144 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThePhilips: I understand position of the DPR and yet....

The list makes no sense, because the best entry-level mirrorless camera is a discounted 1yo mid-/top-level model.

And what's wrong with that? What does being 1 year old have to do with anything? It's price point now is a bargain. It's (X-M1) still being sold by Fuji, and it is to their credit that it still stands up so well against the competition. It makes PERFECT sense. Have you ever used an X-M1? The IQ is exceptional.

Fuji X-A1 is just amazing.

And the Fuji X-M1 is even better!
