On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (401 comments in total)
In reply to:

Wolfgang Fieger: The original G1X was producing pictures with a contrast setting way too high. As a result sunny daylight JPGs out of camera where hardly usable. How did this change with the new G1X MkII? If I look at the HDR image in your review I still think that the standard shot is way too contrasty, while HDR is just close to what the camera should produce as a standard...

So what, it's expensive so JPEG's don't have to work?

I wonder how the people at Canon will feel about their G1X sensor being classed as 4/3 size, and at Nikon about their 1" sensor being in the 1/1.7" section.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summary article (532 comments in total)

Mark9473: The camera ticks all the boxes for me, provided it lives up to IQ and handling expectations. But a big let-down is the appalling battery life. Any chance for an after-market solution offering better battery life? Or will we just have to get used to carrying 4 or 5 spare batteries?

Well I was thinking that with some image reviewing and shooting a bit of video, the camera wouldn't even make it to the specified 240 images by some margin.

On Sony Alpha 7 Review preview (1597 comments in total)

"Not so good for JPEG shooters, Auto ISO users, and photographers who want to quickly capture a moment"

Isn't that like 99% of us? ;-)

Also, taking just the average of the bars on the scorecard gives me a 74% average, not 80%. I wonder how they arrive at the overall score.

I agree it's a significant camera, the first full frame mirrorless and all that, but it appears there was a need to give it an award no matter what the test scores say.

Bijan Alpha: here are few full size samples:

I am underwhelmed by the image quality, to be honest. I don't see this replacing my DSLR. Too bad because the camera looks stunningly beautiful. 20 megapixels into a 1" sensor equals compact camera image quality, is my conclusion.

Francis Carver: I mean, it's not like anybody is going to be MISSING Olympus as a digital camera makers once they're gone, is it? We now have way, way too mane digi-cam makers, not to mention way, way, way to many almost identical camera models polluting the stagnant marketplace. We need to do a spring house cleaning to trim the numbers down. Actually, the courts and the banks will take care of that process for us.

Well, I for one would miss Olympus, as they have IMO the best zoom lenses. Wouldn't mind if a few other companies folded so as to thin the herd though.

On Christmas tree in the Lone tree challenge (5 comments in total)

Having just started submitting challenge entries, I'm not taking my low percentage (21%) too seriously. But in an upcoming challenge I noticed one of the rules is that you can only enter if your percentage is 45% or higher. So some people - that host at least - are definitely taking it serious.
