Just how good a quality can a 30x lens this size be?
ThePhilips: MFD (min focusing distance) of 45cm? Ouch.
One of the reason I went with the m43 was that the Oly lenses have relatively short MFD. Helps enormously in tight corners and on social outings.
Just buy a macro lens if you want to shoot that close.
Felix E Klee: For today's light weight compacts and system cameras, wouldn't it be possible to create an advanced tripod that just weighs about a pound / 0.5 kg, and that is extensible to a variable height of up to 5 foot / 1.5 m? No market?
Bilora used to make the Biloret, which comes close, and which can be had cheap. However its technology is roughly half a century old. I'm willing to pay up to 200 USD / EUR for a tripod matching the above specs. Of course light weight tripods are not great in wind, but it's not always windy.
Carbon is an incredible material. I used very thin carbon legs for a fun table tripod design: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:363348
I have the Sirui T-025x, a carbon fibre tripod that weighs in at .6kg, which sounds like what you're after.
Gimmicky and ultimately uninteresting.
vscd: Interesting, but it has no real advantage because you just use an old lense on your NEX. Maybe a Tilt/Shift Cam can give you some new possibilities.
It's lens, not lens.
Actor Dennis Hopper gets first London exhibition - 4 years after death
What bad taste this title is. They guy has been dead for 4 years, for god's sake! It should be: The Hopper Art Trust is showing an exhibition of the late Dennis Hopper's photos.
Menneisyys: At least we know the following: if (and only if) production RX100's have exactly the same optical and electronic quality,
- at the long end of the zoom, the lens can't resolve 20 Mpixel but has pretty good corners- the sensor seems to be a bit noisier than that of the RX100 MkII- the WB isn't exactly fool-proof
Also, based on the a CameraStore "review", - the 720p120 slow-mo video mode only has 360p120 effective resolution- but at least doesn't have aliasing, unlike, say, the Samsung Note 3- IS in video mode seems to be rather cr@ppy (assuming it wasn't an operator error)
I REALLY hope the lens is significantly better at shorter FoV's. After all, many compact zoom lens (e.g., the Pana 12-32) deliver the worst results at their longest focal length. I *really* hope the case is the same with the new Sony (and the corners at 24mm equiv aren't messy and at least are on par with the above-mentioned 12-32).
Hey, why don't you post this a third time, just to be sure. You never know, some people might miss it.
Artistico: It trolls the web? Really? I thought there was enough trolling just in the DPReview forums for starters. Why would we want anyone else to start trolling for us as well? =P
Ah but this is trolling for a good purpose ;)
What size hard drive does it come with?
jira: YAMC - Yet Another Mirrorless Camera
Do you say YADSLR every time a new DSLR comes on to the market?
Pockets will also do the job and are free.
Rupert, of course ;-)
These photos would be so much better if they had been taken with a decent camera. They're not bad, but these instagram type filters have just become so cliché now. If only she'd used something like a Sony RX100 or Panasonic GM1 (small, compact cameras with good image quality).
Invisible high heels?
Most kids grow out of lego by the age of 10.
Sensible people will just buy the D610.
Allen Yang: I prefer Nikon D7100 to this!
George, why can't you just call it the EM1? Seems simple enough to me.
novak977: the 3 crop mode images are not showing. Could you please fix?
Still not showing Jeff.
Wildbegonia: Here is an idea: instead, why not a 'vocabulary' challenge? It seems that participants do not know or care to check in a dictionnary the meaning of the word boudoir
Please check the word dictionary in a dictionary.
