  • Didn't you read about the new Kodak cameras here on DpReview? See: cdn2.filepi.com I tried to post a photo but got a server error. Anyway, here's the description: This is the Pixpro S-1 , an ...
  • Some software does exactly what you describe, I use CyberLink PowerDirector 11 on a PC and it has an option called 'Smart Rendering'. With this option if no changes are made to a clip it is simply ...
  • I, also, tried the EVF in a Sony showroom and had no problem with the it moving forward when my glasses came into contact with it. I have varifocal lenses and often have trouble using EVFs but had ...
  • I agree Elliot, selling the adapter is tempting fate, some WA/Tele conversion lenses are very heavy. Actually, my first digital camera, the Canon G2, had a threaded extension tube that mounted on ...
  • Thanks for your input, daveco2. The RX100M3 is not even listed on the Sony web page here in HK so I didn't realize the same adapter was being offered as for the M2. I'll have to look at the US ...
  • Thanks for your quick reply, Dan. My partner has the original RX100 and fitted the Sony tape option, which has, so far, worked OK. Hopefully, the same size will fit the M3 as it took Sony quite a ...
  • Hi guys, I have been peering at photos of the new RX100M3 to see whether the lens has a filter thread or not. I cannot see one but perhaps someone who has actually handled one can confirm one way ...
  • Replied in The Solution!
    I still have my Rollei 35SE and matching Rollei flashgun that was about the same size as the camera. You got some pretty sinister lighting effects with close ups if you forgot to turn the camera ...
  • As I'm primarily interested in video, I'm glad I waited. The CX900 with the camcorder build is very interesting, or even the A100. Both have improved codecs, hopefully, but we'll have to wait for ...
  • If only it had Balanced Optical Steadyshot it would have been close to what I was hoping for! I guess the gimbal would have had to be pretty large with a 1" sensor and associated larger lens unit. John
  • It just moved way up my list, Mike! I'm just watching for the new stuff coming out soon! John
  • Hi Ted, You, also, might like to take a look here: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/forum.php It has some very good forums. John
  • Hi Roxanne, Whilst I'm not saying you won't get some good advice on this forum, you might take a look here, also: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/forum.php There are a lot of professional and advanced ...
  • Hi Ted, Yes, BOSS is the stabilization system I was talking about, you can see the lens assembly that moves in one of the links you supplied. It is pretty amazing. You are right about the lack of a ...
  • Hi Ed Form, Thank you very much for your excellent description of how the RX10 lens assembly is held in place and works electronically, what you say makes perfect sense. It explains what we have ...
  • Hi Ted, I completely agree with you that shaky video ruins the shot, unless it is done deliberately in small doses for effect. Some post production stabilizers in editing software help, but with ...
  • I automatically have the palm of my left hand under the body, have the thumb and little finger to control the dial if needed, and extend the centre fingers to support the weight of the extended ...
  • Thanks for your input, Dale. I agree with you that for still photography you may never notice the effect. However, my interest is primarily video and although there may be a negligible shift in ...
  • Thanks for your input, SonicJourneys, this was one of my concerns. All the RX10s I tried were in Sony showrooms and hence had heavy use as demo models and therefore accelerated wear. I wish you ...
  • Hi Phil, Thanks for your input. Yes, I am still considering m4/3 and haven't purchased anything yet. I am considering the GH3 and agree from the videos I have seen that it is the superior camera. ...
