phazelag: I am curious what aperture you landed on for most shots. I usually use f5.6 to f8 depending on the camera and sensor. You mentioned the f1.2 I am guessing you were not going for shallow DOF.

Makes sense. Thanks

That was cool! Studio work is fun, I wish I could do more. Nice job.

I would be more interested in this the glam version if it was at least the latest edition of the RX100, but since its last years, this is a super strong case of fashion over function.

I did see friends post about the last version of this though who had no clue it was a Sony. So the H badge clearly has some marketing strength for those who don't know what they are buying.

On Sony Alpha 7 II real-world sample gallery posted article (231 comments in total)

When I get bothered by the rude comments sometimes on a thread, all I have to do is come to one of these posts to realize the editors and writers take way more abuse any of us ever take. Its insane the lack of respect, thanks, or perspective.

Free Jazz: It seems GM5 still produce 10bit raw files once using E-shutter and the price is too expensive now, $599 will be reasonable for the whole M43 market.
Hoping the next GM will be equipped with IBIS and tilting screen.

That makes perfect sense Tom. I had considered the GM1 for just leaving one of my extra primes on it all the time or just using two of them and shooting with the Ricoh GR wide, one GM1 with a 25mm f1.4, and one with the 45mm f1.8, but so much of my style requires flash for fill or pop even in daylight, I felt robbed by panasonic on this one.

I didnt give any big thought about it at that time, because there are other options and I know flash is not important to everyone.

On ISO-4000-DSC00413 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (4 comments in total)

I thought this would be cleaner at 4000. Is the JPEG engine similar to the RX1 in the studio test shots? The RX1 studio comparison JPEGs are not nearly as good as the A7's or 5D2 or 3. From my memory in looking at full frames.

R Stacy: Why such extreme ISO's. You guys just point and shooting or what?

Because that will be the question on everyones mind and they will get criticized if they don't shoot the high ISOs

On Ship shape in the String and Rope challenge (2 comments in total)

This is beautiful! Catches my eye and keeps my attention. Very pleasing. And I see this was taken with older gear.

I can't believe people could make great work with only a few mega pixels and low ISO! LOL.

My 15 year old would love it.

Tom I agree that for most people wanting more features the GX7 makes sense, but then I struggle with where does the GM1 fit if its not for pockets? I know you're comfy with the larger lenses on it, I just think once it doesn't fit in my pocket, I am fine with a GX7 size. I do see the appeal of buying a GM1/5 for a pocket and thinking it will make a great back up body for another M43.

Tom Caldwell: I don't think the GM1/5 "systems cameras" are really truly comparable with the RX100III in any way other than physical size. The are quite different solutions for different purposes. No disparagement of the RX100III intended - it is a fine camera for its specific role.

The only place they show something in common is a configuration where ability to stuff in a pocket is compared.

I disagree on this. But in the end we are looking through the lens of our needs and experiences. The nice part is there are a lot of choices.

The Ricoh GR was my pocket camera for a year now I carry the RX100M3, both are good both meet my needs for a pocket cam. The GM1/5 could very well do the same thing for me with a 14mm 2.5. And maybe the kit lens in the other pocket or not.

I dont need a tilt screen but I would bet IBIS will come eventually. It fits into those tiny PENs and many people on these boards mocked me when I asked for something like the LX100 in all of those wishlist threads. The couched out engineers said it could never be done, while someone else was building it.

Wow Tom a bit feisty on this one huh? Usually that's me.

This looks very cool

This looks very useful. I use Neewers TT850s to control power, but the remote trigger blocks using an on camera flash. These have TTL pass through so you can still use the on board flash with TTL if you want or as an optical commander.

phazelag: I love my RX100m3 and iPhone 6 plus. If I didn't have so many friends with iPhones on iMessages, I would consider this. But all my extended family, kids, coworkers, and customers have iPhones and even though I got my number disconnected from the apple service my SMS/MMS experience on android with the HTC One and Galaxy S4 was not great. Limits on Photos, poor notifications, etc.

I missed some group texts or got them out of order, or replied to the wrong people. Messaging is still the weakness of android. For some android messaging is adequate, but for me a power user for work with iPhones is was messy.

Serious Sam I think it just depends on what is important to you. I was on Android for two years before verizon had the iPhone and then went back to android last year in an attempt to get a larger screen.

The control of android is getting less and less and iOS has added things users wanted from android, but actually since iOS 8 through 8.1.1 iOS is more buggy than ever still. The Apple ecosystem is easy and nice for families, with Facetime, iMessages, Find my Friends for finding my kids, but its actually losing my trust as far as stability. Android is getting much more stabile.

But I still agree if you havent lived in the apple world with other iOS users on a regular basis, you can imagine, but not really know how nice it can be.

Yes I love hang outs, but no way to get all those people to using something different than their standard messaging on the iPhone.
