  • A back-lit APS-C sensor, h.265 HEVC codec, and what may prove to be some good lenses.  The NX1 will be priced lower than other premium APS-C devices.  The h.265 codec is a real breakthrough, ...
  • Something different to argue about.  Do many Greeks go to China to study and pose for pictures? Would Zeus be able to sue Olympus for use of the name of his home?  Would EU courts recognize a class ...
  • One version of the 1D captures 4k, but as motion JPEG only, which uses vasts amounts of disc space. The Gh4 has very good battery life, so 4k per se is not as taxing as some might fear. However, a ...
  • If he approached you, what deep secrets, anxieties, blemishes, or wishes would you divulge to become part of his geo-tagged click bait?  Don't be bashful. Anyway, being brash (and adding a dose of ...
  • Text of law: http://www.legis.state.tx.us/tlodocs/80R/billtext/html/HB01804F.HTM Counsel for the state will appeal to a higher court and overturn the ruling, using the following arguments: (1) All ...
  • Andrew Reid posted a picture of a Samsung employee injecting hot glue to seal shut the SDXC flap of the NX1 on display at Photokina.  On the one hand, it makes sense to protect the camera from ...
  • Drunkards will at least toast, "Amen, I'll drink to that.  Yes, I'll go dry.  Easy.  Already done it dozens of times." Gearheads are something else.  You might as well tell lunatics to think straight.
  • Select super zoom cameras have CCD sensors with global shutter too.  Years ago, most every camera had CCD sensors, but use has waned because CMOS sensors use less power, can be packed with more ...
  • Unless I am mistaken, SMS13 allows one to select multiple clips and apply the same effect to all.  Whether this works with stabilization, I don't recall specifically.  PD12 allows this.  However, ...
  • Gloomy September release: http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/IR/financial/fr/14revision_sony.pdf Negative impact mainly from writedown of "good will" (deferred cost of patents, royalties, rights, or ...
  • http://www.samsung.com/uk/news/local/samsung-unveils-its-new-premium-camera-the-nx1 and http://www.samsung.com/uk/discover/camera/find-your-signature-with-samsung-nx1/ Thusfar, hunts for greater ...
  • The relevance of 4k video display is dubious, unless one has very acute vision and / or a large screen.  A landscape, outdoor, or sports video work optimized for large screen is probably ...
  • Offensive comments like this earn no sympathy. There is plenty of gibberish everywhere about new products.  Such speculations and opinions are no more distinctive than noses or behinds: ...
  • The NX1 is Samsung's answer to the GH4 and A7S.  HEVC h.265 may represent a whole new reference scale for video. h.265 should use much less space, and offer higher compression quality, than h.264. ...
  • The LX7 has time lapse, built-in ND filter, 120fps 720p video, and currently sells for $260 at Amazon. The sensor is only 1/1.7, but the lens is a fast f/1.4 at wide and f/2.8 at long. It fits in...

  • Shop carefully and you can find LX7 listed for under $300.  It has a high speed video mode that works well in any decent light.  The image stabilization does not function in that mode, but the ...
  • Replied in Enough Tarzan
    Bad news if you prefer that only apes and monkeys to give a hoot about photography. Some are worthy of fine portraiture, and even resemble famous world leaders, but pay poorly. They have no ...
  • MP4 is a "lossy" codec, meaning that there is some loss in IQ each time there is a recoding. I know nothing about iMovie. However, several things might account for your trouble. As a test, you ...
  • The biggest, elephantine difference, relative to the LX7, will be the price. The LX7 originally sold for around $450. The LX100 may be priced just a bit under the RX100iii, but maybe a few dollars ...
  • As Newton said, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. This appears to apply to some human behavior, as well as to rocks and other stuff. Any wonder that the person who claims ...
