aerorail: sony 100m3 practically triple 'own it' compared to lumix 100
go figure...
this poll is a bogus as the same one the year before

can't make an educated vote without thorough knowledge here or anywhere else.
favorite means a person or thing that is especially popular or particularly well liked by someone.

no such thing as camera of the year to satisfy everyone tastes or budget

i'm guessing panny thinks sony got away with charging a high price for a fixed lens little camera that revolutionized the industry (rx100)...so they can charge a high price also

On Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview (455 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jennyhappy2: Kind of funny no one has really mentioned or dare post the link for this review in the Canon forum LOL. Guess because DPReview indicated the G7X is:

The Final Word

The PowerShot G7 X has stirred up a lot of excitement in the camera world, with Canon opening up the category that has been dominated by Sony. Canon went with the excellent Sony 20MP BSI-CMOS sensor and added a longer (yet still fast) lens that is great for portraiture. Sadly, where the G7 X falls apart is performance, usability, and battery life, as discussed above.

While the G7 X earns a silver award for its ambitious lens and image quality, Canon has a lot of work to do in the performance department in order to earn our top reward. "

There is always the GX7 II, though Canon seems to be on a continued pattern here that started with the G1X II.

ive pointed out many times in the past jhappy is nothing but a troll and knows nothing jumping from forum to forum stirring up trolliness

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review preview (836 comments in total)
In reply to:

hall56: Today I received an email from Sony requesting that I…’ Help other shoppers by writing a review about the dsc-rx100m3’. There appears to be more than enough positive things to said about the product – so I thought I would offer my reflections upon another aspect of the Sony experience.
Have you noticed that wherever you look; the purchase the price is almost identical… The resultant impression is that RPM (see Wiki) seems to be employed?
I found a local stockist who, while offering the rx100m3 on his web site could NOT publish any price BUT the full RRP. He could discount it (marginally) across the counter but if he published this marginal discounted price on his web site, Sony would remove him from their list of stockist!
Now I am not saying what Sony are doing is illegal (I suppose that would depend on the laws of the country) but it does seem very, very heavy handed and creates the impression that they are trying to influence the market.
I will leave you to be the judge……?

sony is far from the only company using those minimum advt pricing sheme

a late pre-production running a beta version of firmware 1.0
funny... as far as i am concerned that's a disclaimer. there is no such thing.
99.9% bet the camera is and has been in full production
same story every new release and cameras are on the store shelves from china 2 months later

chrshale: Our government has forgotten who they work for. They somehow think that they don't work for us, and federal lands don't actually belong to the citizens of the United States. If the National Parks need higher entrance fees, then propose that in Congress. But these parks are for the benefit of us, not for the government. If this crap is upheld, the precedent will be set for requiring permits for photography of anything, anywhere. 1984 is right now.

they'll turn the park services over to homeland security and have to wait in lines to be scanned and searched like at the airports

In reply to:

RockmanBirder: So many news articles about this have been written to inflame emotions without really explaining true details. If you take the time to read the reg, you'd find the definition for "Still Photography" is that which "takes place at a location where members of the public generally are not allowed or where additional administrative costs are likely, or uses models, sets, or props that are not a part of the site's natural or cultural resources or administrative facilities." (36 CFR 251.51) And it states as an objective: "Would preserve the wilderness character of the area proposed for use, for example, would leave it untrammeled, natural, and undeveloped and would preserve opportunities for solitude or a primitive and unconfined type of recreation". This seems pretty darn reasonable to me.

In reply to:

fedway: I find it interesting why Panasonic named it the LX100. Could it be that Pany thinks that it will provide stiff competition to the Sony RX100 series? The LX has a bigger sensor and on paper a better lens, manual dials that might be better ergonomically; whilst being less pocketable. I predict that test images will show an image quality advantage for the LX over the RX especially at higher iso.

every camera supposedly hits some sweetspot in the market.
sony, being the biggest innovator in small cameras of late will one up panny next model
