Android 5.0 is now available for the CM1.
R Stacy: Brilliant concept, though already showing signs of 2014 aging specs. Bring the screen, ram and storage up to modern spec and I'd strongly consider it. I don't care about 4k video, years off practical use yet.
If I am going to carry around a phablet/tablet, I may as well carry a dedicated camera.
Seems very expensive. The Sandisk UHS-II 280/250mbs cards are less than half the price of these cards.
Both of the 43 sensors are new. The first 16mp sensor from Sony was the IMX109.
Olympus is currently using a version of the Panasonic sensor in their latest bodies.
My guess is that the 20mp will be initially reserved for the E-M2, while the other Olympus bodies will get the new 16mp.
Niko Tod: I got my copy today with a SN starting with 202... and I don't have any issues on D4s at any shutter speed. But I'm curious - what could be so specific with the 8 series circuitry?!
Shouldn't this fix also apply to the crop bodies (ie. D7100).
Carl Contax: Nikon did not learn enough from D600 problem. The af-s 300mm f4e VR diffenatly has VR issue on the D810 with shutter speeds under 250. This is very expensive lens for an f4 and we have waited way too long for it, but do not see Nikon response yet for this issue. Hope they do soon.
Nikon has just posted a firmware fix for this issues with the new 300mm PF lens. I wonder what they did.
I wonder if the latest IBIS from Olympus is able to handle this any better?
It is about time this is being discussed. This has been an issue with m43 and the 300mm zooms for the past 4 years.
mpgxsvcd: I read the review so far and I simply couldn’t help thinking that I would never buy a Canon 7D MKII over this camera. There simply wasn’t anything I saw in that review that would convince me otherwise.
Sure each camera has its own benefits and drawbacks. However, the NX1's benefits far outweigh its drawbacks and the 7D MKII’s benefits.
However, I simply can't convince anyone else that this is the camera to get. When I mention the Samsung camera they say “I would be more comfortable getting something everyone else has like a Canon”.
The average photographer cares more about not getting the “wrong” camera than the “right” camera. They don’t want to take a chance buying a camera that is inferior and no one else uses because they are afraid people will say "I told you so".
With the Canon camera they can simply say “Everyone else has it so it can’t be that bad”. Convincing people that the majority of camera buyers are wrong is a next to impossible task even though I think that is true.
It also comes down to lenses and at the telephoto end Canon has a huge lead.
arhmatic: The weight, size are not posted... Am I missing anything?
Or maybe this is omitted, for a reason?
665g and 83mm x 106mm
AngryCorgi: fresnel = crappy bokeh (see DO "donuts" from Canon lenses)
The example above is after software correction. This is what it looks like before correction.
This sample from Nikon's site suggests you many be correct.
But is it coming to Canada.
It looks like Canon is trying to speed up the demise of the compacts.
And it seems like Apple will be going in the same direction next year with dual rear cameras. A lot of wasted resources on these gimmicks.
The focus should be on improving IQ especially indoors. The Panasonic CM1 was an interesting idea although it has some issues to work through. Sony has a curved 1/2.3" sensor for smartphones.
Until we see better cameras in phones I will stick with a dedicated compact.
DavidsfotosDotCom: How much does it weigh? compare to 80-400 Nikon?
They weight exactly the same.
Edit: Excluding tripod mount the Canon is 1570g while the Nikon is 1480g. so the Nikon is 90g lighter.
Flashback: Really nice set of samples. pin sharp with good colour.
Panasonic, why oh why didn't you put 4K in this camera?It would be in my hand now!
Is the LX100 that much larger?
Mike Ronesia: How is the macro mode on this camera? It could be perfect for an underwater housing.
cameralabs did a macro comparison with the RX100iii at 5cm (closest distance for the RX100iii), at 3cm and then at 30cm on the long end. The LX100 has much nicer bokeh.
Which images are converted from RAW?
accupix: I was excited about the upcoming LX100 having owned an LX-3 for years so I looked at the GX-7 as it is supposed to feature the same EVF yesterday at B&H. There seemed to be something dodgy about its EVF in my eyes as I compared it to Sony's and Fuji's looking at the same scene inside B&H. I found the Panny's EVF lacking contrast, and somehow mixing over saturation and a pastel rendition at the same time. Fuji had the best EVF, followed closely by Sony- both with maybe too much contrast- more so with the Sony, but both with more accurate color hues than the GX-7. Am I being overly fussy for expecting a $ 900 camera to have a competitive, state-of-the EVF as one of its main features?
I thought they both have 'letterbox' EVFs? When you say the EVF is larger were you comparing similar aspect ratios? According to their spec they both have 1.39x magnification.
