  • I got this lens and the autofocus made a continuous chattery noise on continuous focus mode. I saw a video on youtube where another person had the same problem. I am not sure if it's supposed to ...
  • Commented on Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article

    Nikon is not serious about selling this camera. I think they are producing this in lower volumes and jacking up the price to try and break even. "Here, we made you a mirrorless, so just shut up...

  • Replied in mmmm..DOF..
    DOF makes me drool...
  • Here's what happens in the American market. First time DSLR purchase goes to buy a DSLR because they want better image quality. They see professionals use DSLRs, so they trust it will provide them...

  • ugh..no. I took one look through an EVF 1 year ago and I was astounded by the wealth of info that was displayed in front of my eyes. EVFs are good and I would never want to go back to an optical VF.

  • Good camera for $650 body. However, the design of the camera is many years old now and uninspiring. Functional, yes. Beautiful, no.

  • But camera sensor/bodies get outdated quickly. When you buy a lens, it stays relevant as long as the system is around. Todays sensors will not be a match for sensors 2 years from now.  A new m43 ...
  • 4K is coming fast and furious. 4K TV for $1,000 is coming out this year. But i've got to wonder if 8K is gonna hit just as hard in 2 years and obsolete 4k quickly.

  • I wonder if the Sony organic sensors are coming in 2015. A new line of Olympus cameras with a sensor like that would make them truly amazing. Fuji and Panasonic are said to be releasing a jointly...

  • Add to the fact that this particular camera seems to suffer from a high rate of shutter shock, I would stay away.
  • EM5 came out 2 years ago. NEX 7 and EM5 are a new breed of cameras with high initial development costs. Now, the EM5 body can be easily had for $799. Which is now a more reasonable cost. Now, they...

  • Cameras don't take good photos. People do. Obviously, looking at your galleries, your cameras never helped you take a good photo. Sorry about the attack, but you deserve it.

  • For most people, they should just stick to smart phones. Dedicated cameras are for photo enthusiasts. You are not one of us, please be quiet.

  • Olympus doesn't make sensors. It now depends on what Sony gives them. Don't blame Olympus here. Unless they strike a deal again with Panasonic to use their sensors. Besides, Sony sensors haven't...

  • Compared to what? A Nikon d3200? An NEX 6? You realize an entry level DSLR for $499 is a crappy shooting experience with it's small optical viewfinder, single dial wheel, limited button...

  • Actually. I would buy the em10 over the em5 for a few reasons. Wifi, integrated flash, focus peaking, slightly smaller footprint. I don't need the 5-axis or weather sealing (live in sunny los...

  • SL1 is small, but it's got a small viewfinder and single dial. It's a neutered DSLR. It's not going to be a good shooting experience.

  • No.. just dormant. Beautiful designs stand the test of time. People will rediscover them sooner or later.

  • Yes, mirrorless doesn't sell well in USA but those who buy them actually use them. Nothing like buying a $600 DSLR and having it collect dust because they are just a pain to carry around anywhere.
