Lawrencew: Pity they didn't improve the video quality. That is the thing still putting me off buying what otherwise looks like an excellent Camera - along with the X-T1 which suffers the same problem.

Great cameras, both the E and T, but video is not comparable to the competition.

The still frame side by side that dpreview has posted in the review, video page, shows unacceptable moire and artifacts. The T is the worse.

I hope this is something to be improved via firmware in the future...

joel avery: Is it splash proof like the new S5?

They can do one with lens barrel extending sideways, all inside. There are some older very compact zoom cameras with no external moving parts.

They are a little bulkier, but this is bulky as well. Does not bother me at all, if I get some optical zoom.

And really, no need for 10x zoom, a 4x or 5x max would be great.

peterwr: "With a 13MP *1/3.06-inch* Sony Exmor CMOS sensor..."

FFS. When are camera manufacturers going to start quoting sensor sizes in millimetres? This 1/x.x business is needlessly confusing. OK, so maybe that's the point - big numbers sound more impressive to the inexperienced, even if they have a 1 over them - but still, millimetres (or even millimeters) would make imaging chips a lot easier to compare. It would make it easier to estimate the 35mm equivalent focal length of the lenses, too.

C'mon DPReview - how about you start doing it unilaterally? You're influential enough that maybe you could change industry policy.

I've been saying this for years!
Millimeters!

For the Portland bridge test --- all that gear and effort spend, and they came out with ZERO files?

How is that possible?
They forgot the put the card in? Details?

Whenever I see a Hasselblad related article, I head straight to comments.

Fine camera I am sure, but hey, no crocodile skin grip?

I used the D2x for years... Chosen over Canon mostly for ergonomics. For the price tag, Nikon could engineer the weight and bulkiness a little, which would improve ergonomics significantly, while keeping aesthetics under control. My 2 cents.

On Miggo Strap and Grip review article (86 comments in total)

Innovation, finally.
We really need innovative ways to secure small, one lens mirrorless cameras.

Sometimes I wrap mine in a bandana. Because there are no simple, small and cheap solutions to buy. Not kidding...

Enough with those bulky camera bags that scream to be stolen...
Tamrac and all those, take notice. Be creative.

Dpreview should ditch the score and awarding system on these reviews.

Just too many comments are about a camera getting/not getting that score/award and why/why not.

lacix: Don't understand all these negative critics! You guys must be blind or something wrong with your monitors!
Fujifilm X-T1 is beats all the other cameras at ISO 6400

True, assuming ISO 6400 from Fuji is the same 6400 from other manufacturers
