yonsarh: sony cameras are the best
that would be leicaSince they actually have lenses :-D
tabloid: Looks like SLR cameras with mirrors flapping up and down have had their day.I bought a 3200 and tried to do some videos with it…..and I must admit that it was a total waste of time.First of all videos (for me) was a total disaster, as i couldn't use it in bright sunlight, and secondly the camera (in video mode) kept overheating….and i had to keep putting it in the fridge.
So I bought a Sony A65…..all problems solved.
Video Question: Was there any heating problems (in video mode) with the NX1.Can autofocus be used in any setting.Thanks
the d610 does not have 51 af points.....it has 39 point smacked in a tiny part of the middle.then it shoots 5-6 fps can't remember exactly.and not even 1080 60p nevermind 4k.
It does have that nice fullframe sensor. but a APSC 65nm BSI-Cmos is a technological leap as well.
Free Jazz: GM5 has the IS?
Gx7 has 2 stops IBIS in my experience. to 3-4,5 stops depending on which olympus model.
still those 2 stops are terribly useful at times. especially with all those unstabilised primes in the system
audiobomber: There's an error in the a6000 page. It says: ◾24MP APS-C sensor is one of the best in this class
It should say: ◾24MP APS-C sensor is the best in this class
The fujifilms are no slouch either..........
AdamT: Since when did the GM5 have IBIS ? -
What we like:◾1,166K-dot EVF◾Sensor-shift image stabilization◾Compact, lightweight, tough body design
The Gx7 does have those things though
This is just a very competitive market. hard to pick one over the other.The recommended Sony A6000 probably has the best value/features of the bunch. But it's kit-lens doesn't live up to the same standards.
The Fujifilm has the best image quality with it's amazing kit-lens. But the video that comes out of it is garbage.
The em10 and gx7 are great camera's with great lens systems but lag behind in the high ISO department.
All of these will deliver in their own way.
KerryBE: No Canon or Nikon, what will the conspiracy theorists do?l
That would've been too obvious considering the state of these 2 systems.
justmeMN: Perhaps DPR didn't include the Sony A6000, because they have inside information about a A7000 coming soon.
BTW, I think the A6000 got an award for Worst Kit Lens. :-)
But you can be a enthusiast with a V3 :-D.
David M Warwick: Why do we need 24Mp on a beginner's/starter's DSLR as most would not be tell the difference from a camera with half a many pixels and save card space.
True Roland.But with most lenses used with these camera's you will gain any detail with those high mp sensors anyway. So i did rather get axtre speed or deeper buffer depth.
But that said the other improvements made by these sensors are nice to have.
Lee Jay: Let me talk for a moment about the lack of a touch screen.
I plan to shoot video, mostly handheld of high-speed subjects. In other words, I want to use it like a camcorder. That means I want an eye-level viewfinder, and that means, I'll be using a Hoodman or similar attached to the LCD.
I'm not sure the Hoodman would inadvertently trigger a touch screen, but it would most certainly render it useless. Given the way I intend to use it, it may well be better off with a fixed non-touch-screen LCD and a joystick.
Canon doesn't offer anything of real importance to video guys.no zebra's to check overexposure.no peaking to nail manual focus for nice focus pulls.no touchscreen to use the dual pixel system properly as a substituteno continuous autofocus during 60p recording.no tiltscreen for low/high angle shootingno wifi for external control by an app.no 4kno high bitrate codecno flat profiles
yeah Canon got everything covered in the video compartmentof the 7d mk2..................................
bluevellet: I'm surprised the G1X gets the final recommendation (well, a honorable mention) while the RX10 does not.
I am not. It says Canon on the box. a Canon must be recommended at all times.
whether it's the 100d, g1x or the rather good 70d.
ThePhilips: Pana FZ1000: "Very quick focusing".
Can we please stop calling it "quick" or "fast"?
It is "normal" speed of AF. As it is supposed to be.
No, waiting for a camera to confirm the focus, or the lens motor to hunt back and forth, is not acceptable in this day and age anymore.
The panasonic DFD system does more then just normal speed focussing. It's the best system apart of the best on sensor PDAF systems and dedicated PDAF systems
In this case it deserves a note. since it's main competitor though completely acceptable is slower and tracks less well with just contrast detect(Sony rx10)
mpgxsvcd: This can’t possibly be considered a comprehensive review without the Sony RX100 MKIII and the Canon G7X in it. They are direct competitors to the Panasonic LX100. They may or may not be better than the LX100. However, excluding them in the conversation just invalidates the article.
The image quality from the smaller Sony sensor in the two omitted cameras is on par with the larger sensor LX100 so the sensor size difference is only applicable for the depth of field difference.
Are there plans to add the Sony RX100 MKIII and the Canon G7X cameras to this comparison?
+1 from me.The Panasonic does have a small edge at high ISO. But it's just a minor pro here. Dynamic range is similar.
But excluding the competition entirely completely invalidates this article.
Tom Goodman: For all the alleged inclusiveness (the word "roundup" suggests such) the omissions noted by many including the Sony RX100 III render this article not much more than filler.
A enthusiast compact round-up without the defining RX100 is like formula 1 without Ferrari.
Guenter Hofstaedter: they all work with the same aged sensor technology, so choose by design becouse the Iq is more or less the same! I wonder there is no sigma quadro in that list!
"@Richard How can we notice the Fujifilm is 'missing' when it is not?"
that's not what you said. What you say now makes sense.But then you should've said something like.
@richardWhy did you add the fujifilm to this comparison when you said it was a different catagory 3 months ago. especially since though fujifilm tweaked it they didn't change anything to the formula.
They made big mistakes with this article. The LX100 closest competitors are not here. Becouse these 2 are smaller camera's
However that does not change the fact that Richards reply was right for 3 months and that your concern about the Fujifilm should not be replied here.
It should be at the top as a new comment like why is it here when the Ricoh GR coolpix A Sony RX1 are not. The Fujfilm should be in another catagory since it's so much more restricted. Even though the restriction do give it character and better IQ.
You responded to a post of 3 months ago. which was probably right back then. The X100t that was added this time wasn't even announced 3 months ago.
Photo-Wiz: They are all great cameras. But they missed what I think is the best in this category...the Sony RX100.
Well it would give the LX100 a run for it's money. Which is basicly unchallenged in this line-up.
aatom: Two surprising omissions - the Ricoh GR which has a APS-C sensor, a sharp prime lens, weighs only 245g, size 117x61x35 great images.The second, mentioned by others, is the Sony RX100.Leaving these out of a Compact List makes one wonder how knowledgeable the author is about quality small cameras.
They seem to have a different catagory for those.pocketable compacts. however that leaves room for interpretation that all of these enthusiast compacts compete in a higher segment.
the stylus 1 and g16 can't keep up with the lower catagory rx100mk3 and g7x. And the LX100 faces no competition in here when it does have stiff competition from the "lower tier"RX100mk3
This part of the site really needs a overhaul after these late developments
Richard made that reply 3 months ago and they made changes today.
We can only argue that putting comments to the new article is a bad idea.
