On Akha woman - Thailand in the Indigenous Cultures challenge (2 comments in total)

NOT only from thailand
Villages of these colourful people are to be found in the mountains of China, Laos Myanmar (Burma) and northern Thailand. There are approximately 20000 Akha living in Thailands northern provinces of Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai at high altitudes. This tribe originate in Tibet. Every Akha village is distinguished by their carved wooden gates, presided over by guardian spirits. They life in raised houses on low stilts, with a large porch leading into a square living area with a stove at the back. The roof is steeply pitched. They life on marginal land and find it difficult to eke out a living through their slash and burn method of agriculture. In order to supplement their income, many Akha are now selling handicrafts, employing the traditional skills used in making their own clothing and cultural items

In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: I may have missed it but I was very surprised you wrote this article ignoring the cheaper Canon SX40

Also you say it compares well with the Sony/Nikon competition but neglect to mention the severe lack of zoom compared to the rest of the field (600 versus 800mm+ equivalent).

You may think it does not matter but ask a birder which camera they rather have......

It would not be a big deal if the difference was not so huge but to say "compares well" and not mention how poorly Panasonic compares in actual zooming is negligent:

Zooms on leading compact telephoto cameras:

FZ150: 23X
Sony HX200v: 30X
Nikon P510: 42X
Canon SX40: 35X

Zooms on leading compact telephoto cameras:

FZ150: 23X
Sony HX200v: 30X
Nikon P510: 42X
Canon SX40: 35X

The Scoring is NOT about 100x numbers of Unusable zooms
The Balanced score at the number and the IQ counts
e.g same 24X zoom IQ
fz150 24x vs Sony hx200 at 24X and p150 at 24x and SX50 at 24x IQs
where FZ150 excels

coastcontact: I just purchased this camera last week. So far I am delighted with its performance. I am somewhat surprised that Barney Britton gave the camera such a low rating. Other reviewers have all been giving this camera outstanding reviews. http://www.digitalcamerainfo.com/Extended-Zoom.htm gave the camera a 10 out of 10. DPR’s owner, Amazon, has raised their price to the Panasonic suggested retail price. Probably proof that the camera has been very well received.

In reply to:

Nudibranco: I do not see this camera as a compelling one in the current market. It struggles to "bridge" the gap between the larger sensor higher quality images and the compactness and versatility of smaller cameras.

Basically it is trying to be small enough to be pocketable and maybe it is but it compromises too much on Focus speed (this is just from the review and frankly it is probably not that bad) and distance (which instead is a big disadvantage at least in my applications).

In the "bridge" market I prefer the M43 offering which has lots of flexibility, kit options that are smaller and lighter, and similar or better image quality (thanks to the interchangeable lenses). And some recent compact cameras like the S95/S100, Oly XZ1, Nikon P series are not far off in image quality at low ISO (but with distinct advantages over the G1x).
Canon is just under pressure in this market segment and trying a new approach (this is the only Canon revolution for now).

Pentax-K-01 would be a better deal
smaller-quicker better IQ larger sensor and native K mount lens ranges with primes for a similar price range
DXO score in onpar with Pentax K5/ Nikon d7000 and the same sensor size which is larger than G1X

photo148: love the g line of cameras

The Whole G line should be redesigned and should change the decades old designi.e. brick like camera into a New Refreshed style to suit fan boys and newcomers Should be F2 and should be capable of macro for the hefty price

Mal_In_Oz: The trouble with a camera that ticks all the boxes, is that they don't do anything really well. And this camera ticks a lot of boxes. Big sensor, lots of external controls, good flip out screen, optical view finder, bright lens, reasonable zoom range, well built, compact.

Those are the ticked boxes. But when it come time to own it, you find a few shortcomings that are going to niggle at you. You start by taking some portraits of your kids and find at a good portrait focal length that you only have F5, so the images, though sharp enough don't quite have that pop that you were expecting given the sensor size.

Then you take it to your kids football game and the shadows across the field late in the day combined with the limited zoom and slower aperture don't make a good combination.

The wrong camera is G1X

Lihkin: I really don't understand the negative comments on here. I had the G10, the G12 and now the G1X. The G1X is an amazing camera with great IQ for its size. I take it along with me when I don't want to lug my DSLR and lenses. Yeah it's not pocket size like the S100, but it's not that much bigger either and is so much more versatile. It lacks the speed of a DSLR, but I knew that when I bought it. I think it could be priced lower, but the fact that I get a much larger sensor with great IQ, compared to the other compacts, makes this a winner IMO.

?What is your method of judging a camera?
I would like to learn you Method
Starts with a letter C and ends with N??

DXoscoring for G1 X is 60 and the newest and the most verstaile K-01 is 79 on par with DSLR like pentax K5/Nikon d7000
Should buy a DSLR or K-01 for the same price
