In reply to:

Schwermetall: I'm a owner of the RX100 and very satisfied but I think 12MP @ 1" can be very good.
We will see it in the near future @ DPR :-)

Now that is some serious drivel!

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (3324 comments in total)
In reply to:

deep7: The detail in the "R" version is really impressive. Surprising to see that the "S" version still shows quite a lot of moiré. Mind you, most cameras do in this test (not the Oly EM5II in high res mode though!).

I read some of the negative comments below. I wonder how many of those people realise these Canons will give results no other 35mm cameras can produce? I hope they sell plenty, partly because the positive choice is good for photography and partly because the narrow-perspectived armchair experts can reflect on how foolish their nastiness is.

Not that I would buy one. I've given up on huge bodies and have no desire for huge files.

Lassoni, I really don't want to be rude but do you realise that you sound like a mindless parrot (I'm sorry to say)?

I made a valid point, you completely ignore it and repeatedly carry on about a completely different issue, one you clearly have read about far more than you have personally experimented with. For the last time, I will point out that these Canons will give results no other 35mm cameras can produce. That's a true and valid observation. If you can't get that, fine but please don't sidetrack the point with another topic. Thank you.

By Lassoni (20 min ago)
"You said 5ds gives results no other 35mm camera does? But that is untrue when it comes to exposing the shadows in the post production. You might try expose to avoid clipping of the bright sky, thus the shadows are a bit dark. When you start adding light to those shadows in post production, they will be much noisier with canon sensors than with other sensors. That's essentially what DR is about."

You're not a good reader. I wasn't talking about dynamic range (and, even then, you exaggerate the issue. Have you actually tried to recover blown skies with Canon sensors? They recover blues brilliantly.)

Anyway, that's beside the point. The resolving power is unique in 35mm cameras and you can't deny that.

"The D810 and 5DS(R) look very close to each other, yet D810 has a noticeable DR advantage when taking shots of bright sky in the background. Landscape users will still benefit more from very good DR." I almost had to stifle a yawn when I read this stuck record post. My point remains absolutely true.

On Video Overview: Leica Q article (160 comments in total)
In reply to:

arndsan: I went to the shop and had a hands on myself.
My thoughts after this...
After years of blaming Leica for departing from the photographer needs - I would say this is a great camera. The price is something to swallow and i guess many people who really want to have it can't get it (including me) . Anyway - after so many hype about some new cameras, this seems to be worth to buy and try to forget the price : )
but...The EVF still was not very convincing and I wonder why there is no improvement since everyone is calling this the future.
....I can imagine that this could be a camera to get and stop visiting dpreview for a couple of years.

I'd second that. I have an EM1 and cant imagine ever going back to an optical viewfinder on a digital camera.

On #1 in France: Hands-on with DxO ONE article (193 comments in total)
In reply to:

biggercountry: This is a step in the right direction - assuming the right direction is aligned with my sensibilities that is. What I dream of is a camera with a large sensor and interchangeable lenses, perhaps M4/3, that has a lightning connector on the back of the camera where the iPhone is inserted - in lieu of a regular control panel. But perhaps the DxO design makes more sense. I like this design because it narrows the gap - perhaps effectively eliminating it altogether - between a quality sensor and lens and the great software available on iOS for sharing and editing photos. The immediacy of a direct connection would make it so much more desirable.

An unanswered question I have is if it's possible to save to the SD card and the iPhone memory at the same time. Or if it would be possible to access the DxO camera in apps besides the DxO app. Without that, the usefulness of this camera is dubious.

It mentioned in the other article you can save RAW to the camera and jpg to the phone, so yes to the first question.

In reply to:

rfsIII: Could you add a photo of the top of this thing; I can't see the hotshoe.

Duct tape?

Even though that was a joke, I do have a couple of optical viewfinders here of appropriate focal length. Attached well, that could make for a useable but still very small camera. Hmm.

In reply to:

travellighter: It's really strange that almost everyone here misses the point, which is SIZE. This is by far the smallest 1" sensor camera ever. This is the first 1" sensor camera that is 100% pocketable even in rather tight trouser pockets. This is the first 1" sensor camera that you may actually have with you at all times. And yet, via iPhone, it has a bigger, sharper LCD display than any "regular" camera. This is the future, and it is amazing.

I just hope the optics are good and the price comes down a little ;-)

"Buy a new iPhone in 2 or 3 years, sell the old iPhone, keep using the dxo one." Until Apple move to USB-C for iPhones?

In reply to:

rsf3127: I am looking forward for the comparison of this camera in DXOmark.com with other 1" sensor cameras.

I've always found their scoring misleading but I'd expect their own camera to be aimed at doing well in their own system...

Mssimo: Amazing image quality. Check out large samples http://thedigitalstory.com/2015/06/the-dxo-one-camera.html

Good samples. You can certainly see the potential. I agree that the iPhone can capture decent images by itself but this is a definite step up.

You don't have to click. Just use your left and right arrows. Couldn't be easier.

D135ima: T 0.95 - I dont belive. How it possible ?

The Leica mount version doesn't look to be the same lens. Even if it was, you'd be losing those corners on m4/3 anyway.

And there we go! Equivalence nerds can't help themselves. At least we have a lens which can keep all camps happy.

The EVF allows use of Leica R lenses. A good enough reason to have one.
