I'm ipressed with the high ISO capabilities! This stuff wasn't possible even 2 Years ago. (It has better IQ than my EOS 7D)
DC Alford: I am disappointed to see that the Panasonic LX7 didn't make the list.
they allready have 2 Panasonics... thats why.It would feel like a conspiracy... ;-)
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...
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...
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
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 $299 why would anyone but canon devotees buy an s110?
@marike6: have you seen the high ISO output from the XZ-1? compared to the superb S100/S95/S90 its two classes (F-Stops in Sensor Noise) behind!
Ok, you could argue that at tele the XZ-1 is 2 Stops brighter than the Canon... But thats the price for beeing pocketable...
ddtwenty: I like to add another point.
As a compact enthusiast user, I just want to use a high grade super zoom like 400-500 mm. range. I can only find the super zoom on travel zoom compact like canon SX 260 with 25-500 zoom. And the quality of images are quite good.Only if it come with larger sensor , that would be better.
Let's say ... if panasonic will do the LX8 with the specification I said below..(24-90 zoom with large 4-5 inch touchable lcd and 1 inch sensor.)
They should add another choice for super zoom users....for instance...Panasonic LX8T which has the same specifications like LX8 24-90 but come with telezoom lens 125-500 mm. With f stop like f 2.8- 4 . The sensor is also 1 inch.
I think this will be a great choice for enthusiasts who want to use super zoom lens but can afford to pay more than 300$. 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 sensorLX8-T 125-500 f.2.8-4 1 inch sensorBoth 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.
Raed Ameen: hi .. is this enter-changable lens camera?
thumbs up for Smartcams!
i cant memorize the name "KLYP" ...and the product is usless in my opinion...
z9z9z9z9: Looking at the mode dial, it looks like this camera does NOT have AP or SP, just program, manual, and a bunch of scene modes.
Well what do you want with a 1/2,33" Sensor? F8, F16? Its going to be soft as hell.
Brandy101: I need help making a decision. I was loving my t1i, but the continuous shoot mode just recently quit, so my warranty covered me getting either a credit of $750 or the t3i. I am an amateur and only use it for family purposes (dance, sports, my kids posing in general). I have taken multiple types of shots from regular photos to sports. I'm a little confused in whether or not to take the store credit and add to it to get the T4i or just stick with the T3i. I'm sorry if this sounds very unprofessional, but I am not a professional. ;)So if someone could kindly give me some advice on which one would be the better choice for sports, family portraits, etc. it would be greatly appreciated!!Also what would be a nice decently priced lens for sports?
The T4i is a little faster in Burst mode(5Fps vs. 3,7) and also in AF, because it has all crosstype Af- Points like the 60D (9 crosstype Points vs. 1).I would prefere the T4i for sports...If you only ned a light tele (for closeups from a distance, in good light), the Canon Ef-s 55-250mm IS is a very good lens. Its sharp and has a Image Stabilisator. It's not that fast (F5,6) and AF is ok too. But it only cost like 199$.Best for Sports, but more expensive is eighter a Fast Tele lens (F2,8) or a Prime Lense (E.g. 85mm F1,8 or 100mm F2.0).I hope, this helps...
malcolm82: Again with a horrible F1.4 lens.A camera this size with a normal zoom should have an aps-c sensor with a lens of around F3.5-5.6 such as the standard zooms on interchangeable lens camera's.
Just look at the size of the panasonic powerzoom lens:http://www.dpreview.com/previews/panasonic_x_14-42_3p5-5p6/2
Its total length looks about 32mm so it can easily collapse in a camera size much smaller than this one.
A micro four thirds sensor would be ok for a camera this size with a 5x zoom lens or for a much smaller camera with shorter zoom range but for this size with 3-4x zoom it really should be aps-c.
@Timmbits: the LX7 has a physically larger lens opening than the M4/3 Kits! You can calculate it like this: actual Focal length/aperture nr.= actual size of aperture.LX7: 17.7mm /F2,3 = 7.7mmM4/3: 42mm /F5,6 = 7.5mm !
I'll buy one!
Erland Nielsen: Natural enviroment ? Looks like a photo taken inside a studio.
the speediest? also the lasyest! once they sit down, you can take like 20-30 pictures of them if you dont move to fast!With the P&S I've managed to take a picture of one just 1cm away. :-)
Nokia, put Android or Windows Phone in this phone and you're good to go!
happypoppeye: Whats a 1/1.2 sensor ...is that big or small, I have no idea...
1/1.2 sensor is by far the biggest Phone-sensor. Normal Smartphones have a 1/2,5" sensor.
The new sensor has a aprox. 6times bigger surface area.
D1N0: you might as well get a point and shoot, when you are going to use lenses like this one
300$ for a DSLR with THIS lens, I belive *Greg VdB3* is dreaming...But you asked for an alternative: Fujifilm FinePix X-S1. It only lacks the optical viewfinder and a little low light capabilities...
Can't tell if it's better than the 600D or 7D...
