Its a Samsung NX Mini. Samsung can't be accused of copying this time.
I have owned the X30 since launch, and spent a lot of time trying to get the best from it. I think it is a very well designed camera for serious photographers. Being a smaller sensor I have found you need to get close to your subject at short focal distances, the magnification of the smaller sensor will give poor distant details. Despite Fuji's reputation for great jpeg I have found sharpness and noise reduction far better using Aperture raw with nr off, detail and sharpness at 15 and 40 respectively. Using the Histogram always ETTR which matches the Standard Provia preview quite well.
This blinkered obsession with sensor size and high iso is crazy. You are getting a camera hugely compromised with small size, soft lens, no viewfinder, terrible battery life all for high iso bragging rights.The Fuji X30 is a real photographers camera and all most people will ever need. I have just returned a RX100 as it was awful to use, had a poor lens, slow software etc etc.
This camera is so good the miseries are relying on non integrated flash as a life or death issue. You couldn't make it up.
Wow! This is the cutting edge APSC sensor that must be way better than that tiny sensor in the E-M5. However even at 6400 and with a LPF it's very comparable. It may allow for bigger prints, but 16MP is plenty for me.
itsastickup: Another bokeh-less fast lens for m4/3.
And paying a lot of money for it too.
No bokeh no buy.
Itsastickup. You are typical of the 35mm amateur. I suggest you educate yourself:-
AP's vendetta against Olympus continues. They? have been dragging this morsel out for most of the year.
WilliamJ: "a new 12-megapixel CMOS image sensor ensure outstanding imaging results in all photographic situations, including unfavorable lighting conditions"...
True ? As this camera is based on the Panasonic FZ200 model that has been widely pointed out for its weakness in low light situations (which is desolating for me as I'd planned to buy one) how could the Leica model be better ? Is there something that we should know about a special improvement that makes the Leica camera better than its twin Panasonic camera ?
No irony inside, just a technical question.
M4/3 is a squarer ratio than APS-C, otherwise it is a similar size to Canon APS-C. How about those 36 mega pixels crammed onto the D800?
Ropo16: Raist3D.Exactly what you have spent years doing on 4/3 forum!
Most saw through your token interest as a ploy to save yourself from being completely ostracised.Now you spend your time defending the mickey mouse Pentax Q you purchased.

Ropo16: SDYUE are you the worst marketeer ever employed by Canon, or just someone with a severe disorder?
So that confirms it. You are delusional.

Ropo16: The Olympus E-30 had this in 2009. Another solution looking for a problem eh, dpreview? Now it's a great feature now the pay masters have slapped it on.
So because the features is used by a camera brand commonly used by agencies in a professional context it now has merit?What's next proffessional Canikon Art Filters?

Marike6 - still desperately trolling. For a Nikon lover you spend a lot of time stirring on the m43 forum.Oh well last gasps of a dinosaur.
No, but you made some bad films Mr Cage.
I think dpreview were aiming for the same look with their Zuiko 75mm 1.8 samples.

Maybe the "powers that be" are unhappy at the game changing influence the em5 is achieving and ordered a redress?
