  • 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  • But camera sensor/bodies get outdated quickly.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...

  • 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.

  • Hello, it's the same sensor. There's won't be any real difference in quality when viewed in RAW. It's possible the JPEGs could look slightly different due to new processing engine. RAW should be...
