Adrian Harris: RX100 Mk4 appears far noisier than my Mk1, which is a great disappointment as I was hoping the new sensor was going to be a leap forward :o(
I would like an EVF but am not prepared to accept worse photo quality!

I think your crazy! DO you really think that Sony would release a camera that is worse than three models ago? Get real!

onemoreguy: 75% more expensive than fz1000 today

Ok Biological_Viewfinder, I disagree about Panasonic, I love Sony's Cameras, I have the RX-10 and Love it! I had both the GH-3 and GH-4, outstanding cameras and very good lens's. My only reason for having the RX-10 was, by accident, my GH-3-GH-4 and lens's were stolen, too much cost to replace, and took a chance on trying the RX-10 as an interim camera. Now I'm sold on this camera and the design of having one lens fitted to the sensor. But, I loved my Panasonic GH-3 and the GH-4.

John Nall: I'm curious to know if the new RX camera modifications will result in longer battery life, quicker focusing, faster image processing or turn-on. I have both the 10 and 100 mk3 and found these items bothersome, while taking 7,500 shots during a one-month European vacation. Whew! my trigger finger hurts.

John, Well, I think you will see a little faster focus, and faster Image Processing, but I'm afraid the battery life is going to be the same, possibly a little worse. The New RX-10 II Uses the same Sony battery-NPW-F50, I think that's it, and it has the same amount of power. I love my RX10, My Main gripe with it is the battery life.

electronbee: Only thing I don't like is the 1" sensor marketing ploy. The 1" sensor was originally devloped to replace a 1" imaging tube and the sensor is nowhere near an inch on any dimension. Ok, I'm off my pedastal.

Good! Stay off! I love the RX-10 and the 1" sensor is absolutely phenomenal! It's the images that count, not the dimentions!

There are 2 areas that I hope the New RX-10 II improve on, A little better low light, and better battery life. But if not, I don't care, I will still get it Pre order coming B&H!

This Sony Camera the RX-10 II is absolutely Fantastic, the new features alone just blow away the most of the competition. Believe it or not this is a pro camera! I have the RX-10, for those of you who don't or haven't, The RX-10 is so good, the lens is superb!

Always a clean sensor, the 1" sensor at 20 mp, is so good. This is what I'm waiting for! What a wedding Camera this is, Stick a fork in Canon, they are done! All these features plus superb glass, 4k, Super Slo-mo, for $1,300 US I'm all over it!

On Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge article (732 comments in total)
In reply to:

Fabio Amodeo: First point: mirrorless (or whatever they call them) are up. True, more in Asia, quite in Europe, not so much in the USA. But still true.
Second point: mirrorless are earning money. True, maybe. The industry has gone from “with these numbers next year we'll go bankrupt” to “with these nunbers we might survive”.
Third point: all mirrorless are unfinished work. What they still need is a huge advance in processing power/reading speed of the sensor. Let's talk when the work is finished (if the cameras will be able to disperse the heat involved).

Excuse me Fabio, but your wrong about Mirrorless sales in the USA, That's what this article is about, Hello!!

In reply to:

mailman88: I'm not riding the Sony wave. I need affordable options at 400mm and over.

That's OK, but the majority don't have your needs, that's why Sony is seeing a surge in sales, DSLR's are declining fast and will continue to do so!

On Interview: Canon's Chuck Westfall on the new XC10 article (347 comments in total)
In reply to:

ArchiDeos: Wow. I've seen to much bitterness on the comments. In respect to all the Pros and Newbies like me, If you don't want the specs of the Camera then don't buy it. That's simple. But as they say we can be all have an opinion on the net. I like the concept but that doesn't mean I will buy the camera. Just for the fact that you can shoot continues shooting for 1 hour or 30 minutes video is a plus compare to the one mostly talking about. Hoping they can do the software upgrade for RAW both video & still if they can.. Waiting for MARK II. Have a great day everyone.

Don't want the specs? That's are point here, There is very few, for an outrageous price! You are right, the sales will be very poor!

On Interview: Canon's Chuck Westfall on the new XC10 article (347 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: Someone commented here that the Canon XC10 is a prosumer PowerShot camera, and I agree. The camera is everything that a PowerShot built for pros on a budget should be. I won't try to comment on its image quality or even on whether it will be accepted by the target user base until I can get my hands on one and check it out for myself. What impresses me the most at this time are the design and ergonomics. I think Canon has made a very user friendly camera that, like all PowerShots, can be picked up and used by anyone regardless of their skill level. If all of this proves to be true in practice, then I will definitely buy one for myself by next spring. It would be the first small sensor camera that I would consider to be a compliment to my DSLR system and the way I work. As first impressions go, I really like what I see in the XC10. :))

Wow you must work for Canon! LOL! You can't be serious about Pros buying this camera. Good Luck!

Canon, Listen UP!!

It would be wise for you to learn how a small company like Black Magic Design, has progressed into a very cool company, With there key drive being design!

This next Camera from them is going to make a serious dent into the market.
This the kind of forward thinking that people want to see Canon!

Your design is based on how can we give cutting edge features, and protect our other products profit margins, plus you can only ride that Lens program for so long!

Ok check this camera out, it is just outstanding! I already have mine on order.
Comes out in July, for $995.00 No, it does not have 4K, but, the 1080P form this camera is so good, it will trump 4K down reser's. See the specs.

This XC10 is a complete planned rip-off or Canon is just stupid!

I will take the Samsung NX1 and there 16-50 lens over this XC10 All Day Long!
Even though the NX1+Lens package cost $400 more!

Sorry Canon, The ergonomics, 4K, and the design are the only thing going for this camera. Lens Too Slow, shutter speed too low, No built-in flash, No Power Zoom,
expensive Cfast Cards , Not weather sealed, Slow Continuous Drive-3.8fps on a 12 Mp sensor? USB 2.0? No Raw Images? 4K at only 30FPS?

Your bragging about the 1" sensor in low light, well with only a 12 MP sensor it better be real good in low light, Why, Because the Sony RX-10 has all the features that the XC10 does not have, except for 4K, and its a 20 MP 1" sensor for a max price of $900.00 I would have a hard time buying the XC10 if it were priced at 1,500.00 due to it's many limitations, let alone $2,499.00 I love the one lens concept I have fallen in love with the RX10, except the battery life

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1224 comments in total)
In reply to:

AlexisH: Here are the typos I found while reading through:

"that I realized *I* how many photos I had taken" - extra *I*

"but in every day use the 28 MP" - should use everyday

"the NX1 includes some significant compute power" - computing

"as soon as focus is achieved[,] a flurry of AF" - missing comma

"will appear over the the subject and [will] attempt to track it" - missing "will" in second part

"In fact, since being introduced[,] the NX1" - missing comma

"we can't get it to reliably work " - split infinitive, should be "to work reliably"

"of maintaining the connection[,] and conventional Wi-Fi for " - missing comma

"Oddly[,] the installation app" - same

There is also a typo of info in 2 places you state:
4k 4.2.0 8 bit, Out of HDMI, and one other place, it states 4k4.2.2 10bit? Which is it?

In reply to:

RichRMA: Well, some medium format style bodies balance well, (Pentax 645 for example) but I don't know how this will be received by the video crowd who will be its primary buyers, IMO. The pixel count is also "sane" for the sensor size, but don't expect Sony A7s low-light video quality from it.

How do you know it's low light capabilities? Are you a Canon Eng?

Jose Ernesto Passos: Unfortunately the market is concentrating and one option is going to disappear from the market. Sony has been doing lots of mistakes after it missed the LED technology in TVs. In the camera business it overstretched the number of camera models. Probably this decision was supported by the some major consulting company.
The fact is that Samsung may destroy the consumer electronics business in general. Today it has achieved such a huge economy of scale that dwarfs any competitor.
Canon in no way is a competitor for Samsung. Samsung dominates too many technologies today. If we take a look how it is starting to move in the camera business, unless there is an anti-trust action there will only one. I don't like a market with a small number of choices...

Look up the reviews at B&H that are end users that purchased the camera. They don't get paid, and B&H does not filter there reviews.

Have you read any of the reviews at all? Everyone who has used the NX1 has nothing but High praise for it!
