  • Agreed. Also, as I mentioned earlier, even where it fits, the LF1 feels smaller in a pocket, compared to a Panasonic ZS or RX100, than the specs would suggest.  You have to experiment with it to ...
  • The compromises for small cameras with high image quality are interesting. A fixed lens 4/3 sensor camera strikes me as a poor compromise of factors. Take the Panasonic LX100, e.g. Not clear why ...
  • Agreed. Helpful answers and no bias I saw.
  • Replied in RX100M4
    Ah, I didn't realize you were talking about different cameras. If the higher resolution cameras bin, then they offer the best of both worlds as I understand, which does raise a question about why ...
  • Has anyone commented in this thread (that may have overlooked) that if the RX100IV has a 4/3 sensor it couldn't possibly be as small with a lens of any quality.  The rumors are that the camera ...
  • Replied in RX100M4
    That's interesting. On compact cameras that offer different resolutions, the lower-than-maximum resolutions just throws out the information from the unused pixels, I believe, rather than binning ...
  • Replied in RX100M4
    It is, I believe, more complicated than that. A larger sensor permits larger pixels (holding pixel resolution constant), which permits more light gathering before the sensor saturates, which, in ...
  • Replied in RX100M4
    But the larger sensor has advantages beyond light gathering--for the exposure of any given scene a 4/3 sensor will collect twice the information of a 1-inch sensor, all else equal. That can ...
  • Will be larger, would have to be. At that point, I'd go with a Panasonic GM5.
  • If I get the Sony, I will keep both, but if I'm unlikely to use the Sony much, I won't buy it. "Not a major concern" is not the same thing as "irrelevant."
  • This is exactly the sort of information I was hoping to get. Thank you. As it happens, I was just at B&H in New York to look at the RX100III yet again, and although it is, I agree, bigger in a ...
  • Thanks. In my view you greatly underestimate the size difference between the two cameras. The RX100III is about the same size and weight as the Panasonic ZS40, which I own, and although the specs ...
  • The camera I use for travel is a Panasonic LF1, which takes excellent photos (see Tuscany , e.g.) and is so small that it disappears into a pocket. Yet I'm in constant equipoise between just being ...
  • Like you, and for the reasons you give, I love the LF1, on which I take about 80% of all photographs (and all travel photos) though I own half a dozen cameras. Yet I'm in constant equipoise ...
  • That zoom range on a 1" sensor would not be that small, the size of an LX100, I'd guess. Thus the assumption that there would be no demand, though I'm with you and would buy one.
  • Fair enough.  The reason I dropped PFS is that it requires folders to operate rather than isolating on the file with the AVCHD file in it.  So when editing films (which it won't do) there was ...
  • So much video software now reads files from ZS cameras that it is not longer necessary to use PhotoFun, which is a dinosaur. Unless budget is a big concern, which it may be, I'd get one of those ...
  • The owner's manual talks about setting the Control Ring, not the Control Dial.  Pretty sure I just mis-remembered that the dial was programmable, because it is on the ZS40.
  • Though I'd prefer adjustable JPEG engine to RAW, I share your frustration about camera manufacturers not including every plausibly useful option. (I've for years wanted to invest in a Nikon 1 ...
  • For sure.  I use RAW on small cameras only so I can better adjust in processing (and even that I'm giving up gradually).  I'd love to be able to boost contrast and saturation slightly for JPEGs. ...
