On Olympus Stylus Tough TG-4 to offer Raw capture article (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

ShatteredSky: Well, back from holidays and what do I see? Since I bought my TG-1 I grumbled that RAW is missing. Seems the wait is over. On the other hand in the meanwhile I bought an XZ-2 with housing ... Hmmmm.

That is the crux, isnt it? But since it has been stated often enough by others and me (even in this thread) what truly is wanted (but probably not economically feasable), I will leave it at that. I will just add that I really only use the TG for underwater shots. For above my NX is of course way better, even if less convenient.

On Island life: Samsung NX500 Shooting Experience article (163 comments in total)

The three points the NX500 hits and my slow adaption to an NX300 over the last year is the reason why I am getting one: a very good stills shooter with good autofocus in a lightweight body. I would have taken weather sealing though, and would not have said no to a viewfinder. So, as I ve stated several times, these innards in an E-M5 II body ...

In reply to:

Eric Hensel: Impressive detail with that lens (16-50) and sensor.

On that i fully agree. I do not like the size and style of the NX1, though the latter is a matter of taste of course. Hence I will be getting the NX500, since it suits me better for lenses like the 12-24.

Because the 16-50/2-2.8 is as large as it needs to be, but the body could still be smaller, hence the NX500.

ShatteredSky: RAW for the tough series please. Or better finally do a tough XZ-3. Thanks!
(yes, I am aware that this may not be what the market demands, it's just me).

I already have a XZ-2 with PT-054 housing, and it is quite good.

The thing is that Olympus is on the right track with the TG series, but somehow got stuck. The idea with the ring"light" accessory is a nice touch, but making the whole package somewhat larger would enable them to upgrade quite a few features (I assume). I even would not mind a lens that would permanently stick out.

The AW1 would be perfect, if they would have produced a more interesting lens. The reason for the small sensor UW-camera is to have a nice zoom range AND a good macro capability.

I like the concept of a brighter lens as in the TG series (have the TG-1). The whole series is hampered by the lack of RAW and high fixed NR.
I do not care if it is larger (I have the XZ-2 with PT-054 now, too), but 5 axis IBIS, a 24-120 lens and a XZ-2 / or X30 sized sensor would go down well, with inductive charging, wireless file transfer and built in 64 GB memory. This circumnavigates the necessity of ports and limits the danger of flooding.

ShatteredSky: I want that 150-600 for NX or m43. Please ...

Thanks for the info, but I would welcome a (scaled down) version to take advantage of the crop factor. Though even 600 and more light sounds also very good. Might try that at some point ...

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1392 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sirandar: Comparing the standard res Mark II images to the original OMD E5, they just don't look as sharp or crisp with the II. Am I missing something? Look at the green feathers...

Also, the addition of a articulating display is very welcome, but can you turn the display to face inwards when not using it? Since even with a screen protector the display tends to rub against stuff and take damage, turning it in would make shooting a much more carefree experience.

My old Pana FZ30 had this feature and I took advantage of it a lot as I tend to use the viewfinder.

Agreed, but as mentioned may be down to the lenses used.

Is there perchance a possibility for a wifi/NFC external mic? And a macro with better stabilisation than the 60 mm please (I know, I am greedy).

On Samsung introduces NX500 with NX1's 28MP BSI sensor article (143 comments in total)

I made do without a viewfinder for about a year with the NX300. Never thought I would adapt to it, but it worked out quite nicely. I would still appreciate the addition of a viewfinder though ...

This: "Equally it would have been nice to gain a four-shot, 16MP mode that offered Foveon-like full color resolution images." Maybe we will see this in the future with a firmware update?

ShatteredSky: Plastic fantastic. Why everybody wants to fake anybody's face is beyond me ... cloning out a pimple is one thing. Smoothing over the entire facial landscape is another.

Every time I see an image dealing with (female) fashion I got to think: "Where the heck is all that meat gone?" If you would touch her there are only bones left, creepy. This also translates to fashion, in so far as it makes finding fitting stuff (that is not to tight) more difficult. Luckily for men this issue is not that pronounced.

Thanks for your votes. And also thanks to the host for allowing three entries. It is always very interesting what your own expectations are, and how a larger audience votes in the end.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (387 comments in total)
In reply to:

ShatteredSky: What if I want to use that tilting screen for non-selfie shots? Am I cool than? One of my gripes is that the LX100 does not come with a tilting screen ...

If you do not want to selfie, than just don't. Childishly easy ...

Did you read correctly? I never said I wanted to do any selfies. I do not normally like them at all (except for some very rare sentimental moments). But I DO like tilting screens.

Anyway, I could let my daughter take images of me, so technically they are not selfies anymore ;-)
