    True enough. No 36 MP camera is really the best tool for the job if you're a sports/action photographer.

    @arhmatic - Sony have done, more or less, with the A7R. Amazing camera! :-)

  • Yes, quite. I can see why you'd like an aperture ring to click, but really, you can control just about every shooting parameter you like on the RX100s, and with considerable scope for...

  • @photog4u Yes, quite. I can see why you'd like an aperture ring to click, but really, you can control just about every shooting parameter you like on the RX100s, and with considerable scope for...

  • Ah yes, good point. I forgot those new Siggies are available for a-mount. I have to say this is an interesting camera - I suppose its high ISO performance will make it or break it, given that...

  • Are there any decent lenses for these things? I have recollections of most of the standard primes being a bit below par compared with similar from Canikon...

  • I agree, that would seem to be the way forward. Although it'll take some design work - see Kai Wong's review of the previous version of this camera on YouTube - if you raise the mirror it protrudes...

  • The mirror feeds the autofocus module not the EVF. (Focusing using the sensor is very accurate but slow.)

  • "rarely visually significant, image quality costs of keeping that mirror in the optical path"

    I don't think it'd be too hard to spot the effect, you're talking about significantly higher ISOs to...

  • I haven't had it very long, but early impressions are very positive indeed - although that may be because the camera just suits my particular needs and style of shooting. I bought one basically to ...
  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    pinnacle - I hear you, but LR 5.4 produces JPGs virtually indistinguishable from the camera's, especially now it includes Fuji's film simulations. If you compare them at 100 % - LR 5.4 at default...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    :D

    Yeah, seriously though, I'm surprised that the weird behaviour of the X-Trans sensor doesn't get more discussion in reviews such as this one on DP Review. I've just been up to Scotland and shot...

  • Commented on Review: Ona Lima camera strap article

    Thanks Barney. I see JJC are making a new version of their generic X100(S) hood, which is very similar to yours. If/when they become available in the UK I'll get one, the camera is pretty...

    Like the lens hood shown on the x100s in the photos, anyone have details please?

  • If it works like the X100S, you should be able significantly to reduce the noise reduction. I find the default noise reduction and sharpening on Fujis gives them a slightly overprocessed look - I...

  • There's more to life than speed. DSLRs certainly focus very quickly, but phase detection AF is a bit touch and go. If I need critical focus on D7100 at larger apertures, I need to use live view - ...
  • If they can keep the price down and optical quality's decent, I'll buy one.

  • There's more to life than speed. I chose the Sigma for its astonishingly high sharpness, incredibly minor chromatic aberrations, minimal distortion, and excellent colour and contrast. And for the...

  • The basic SLR principle is old technology, but Nikon in particular have been pretty good at offering the latest sensors, with options for RAW bit depths and lossy/lossless compression. I'm not...
