On Canola Fields in the My best picture this week challenge (13 comments in total)

The image quality doesn't match the Camera...
It looks like a Iphone HDR shot... (sorry ;-) )
Was the Picture a lot smaller and did you enlarge it again?
There are not details in the fields at all.

But the Windows XP flashback make it worth the win!

Reg Natarajan: With every camera capable of ISO 12800 these days, tripods are about as useful as slide rules to me. (I'll bet some of the younger people here don't even know what a slide rule is. Trust me, you're not missing anything.)

Night photografie isn't realy possible without a proper tripod.
But if you're just shooting holiday snapshot, and only by day... then you really don't need a tripod...

ogl: Shutter speeds 1/8000sec with Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority,Manual Exposure, and combination of electronic shutter enabled

Well my old Casio EXILIM Pro EX-F1 had Shutterspeeds in Shutter Speed Priority AE: 60 to 1/40000 second!
That was 5 years ago... so the 1/8000th of Pentax is no miracle! ;-)

Well, Pentax bought Ricoh.
In my eye's this is the next Ricoh GR Digital.
Focal length steyed the same, the aperture got a little better (1.9->1.8)
An they gave it a zoom lens!
And of course they built in the typical Ricoh 1cm macro!

Well done Pentax!

mgm2: Hotshoe...why? With a lens this fast who uses flash? Well done Pentax

Well I prefere natural light, but sometimes (in my case seldomly) you have to use a proper flash.
You almost can't take that thing to a studio because of the missing hotshoe...

In reply to:

Craig Atkinson: I don't understand why in the 'compare' tool the RX100 isn't there - even when all categories is selected.

I like the sound of the G15 but other than the VF and the lens speed is there anything it has over the RX100? I have and use the RX100 but hate it, I use it purely for the sensor at 28mm. I prefer the GRD4 and am waiting for the GRD5 hopefully with larger sensor!

Well, the G15 has a brighter lens at enything else than f=28mm...
But i see your point...

On Nikon unveils 24.1MP D5200 DSLR with optional Wi-Fi article (392 comments in total)
In reply to:

Henrik Herranen: Uhm, "1080p/60i"? This is a contradiction. Video cannot be progressive (p) and interlaced (i) at the same time.

That means 30Fps Sensor output, usually.
60 are the interleaved fields that are shown together in one second for smoother video...
It's s**t in Post Processing! You will get nasty Lines in the Picture...

In reply to:

tom sugnet: I have this phone and pictures look soft even after you've taken them (when previewed on screen). I guess the effective resolution is around 4 megapixels (due to strong NR), it's much much softer than my 6 megapixel Fuji F31fd (which I gave to my mother and don't use anymore).

Well there is no surprise that a larger 6MP sensor performs better in low light than a very small 8MP sensor.
More Pixel area= better sensitivity

On Canon Powershot S110 Preview preview (103 comments in total)
In reply to:

ennemkay: the lx and xz cameras have the same sensor and much better lenses. and the rx100 has a much better sensor and lens and similar pocketability. if it's priced more than $299 why would anyone but canon devotees buy an s110?

@marike6: have you seen the high ISO output from the XZ-1? compared to the superb S100/S95/S90 its two classes (F-Stops in Sensor Noise) behind!

Ok, you could argue that at tele the XZ-1 is 2 Stops brighter than the Canon... But thats the price for beeing pocketable...

In reply to:

ddtwenty: I like to add another point.

As a compact enthusiast user, I just want to use a high grade super zoom like 400-500 mm. range. I can only find the super zoom on travel zoom compact like canon SX 260 with 25-500 zoom. And the quality of images are quite good.
Only if it come with larger sensor , that would be better.

Let's say ... if panasonic will do the LX8 with the specification I said below..
(24-90 zoom with large 4-5 inch touchable lcd and 1 inch sensor.)

They should add another choice for super zoom users....for instance...
Panasonic LX8T which has the same specifications like LX8 24-90 but come with telezoom lens 125-500 mm. With f stop like f 2.8- 4 . The sensor is also 1 inch.

I think this will be a great choice for enthusiasts who want to use super zoom lens but can afford to pay more than 300$. yes I can pay 500-600$ for a high grade super zoom one, and in the same time I can carry this high grade super zoom with me anywhere because it's just a compact size camera.

Thank you Panasonics if you do these cameras for real.
LX8-W 24-90 f.2.0-2.8 1 inch sensor
LX8-T 125-500 f.2.8-4 1 inch sensor
Both cameras equiped with 4 inch high resolution lcd android 4.1 O.S.

the 500mm have to have a 46mm front-element.
Thats not too big for my opinion.
The length does not to have the real focal lenght(185mm) eighter.

(1" Sensors have a 2,7x Crop Factor. so the 500mm has to be devided by 2,7 =185mm. The F-Nuber is wished to be 4. So the 125mm have to be devided by 4 =46,3mm.)

In my oppinion the HTC one X is THE best camera phone, after the Nokia 808!
I had one, but the battery was shitty.
