Jeff Greenberg: > Luminance Noise Reduction +25

Really? ISO 6400!!!?

Try +50 to +60...

I also would like to see that.

ric63: Again, SOOC is more pleasing and accurate.

The white balance is better on here. But the SOOC is better.

In reply to:

ric63: I think the SOOC image is far better, yes a tad dark, but the adjusted one looks muddy, messy and noisy.
Just a simple tad of brightness would have done the trick.

I agree, see my comment under the JPEG version.

Here is the SOOC image exposure brought up .65

Thanks for posting these two together. I would have liked to this image raised .65 exposure like the Previous raw. These situations are why I love in camera raw processing. People laugh me off but I think the cameras can do a much better job with JPEGs on occasion than Adobe can.

You guys have done a great job selecting images for these test in the last year or longer. Great job.

phazelag: Another Olympus in a Casio body.

Wow, I missed the 25mm part originally and I am fine with being wrong, but clearly my comment weighed on you guys enough to spend this much energy to prove me wrong and let me know. I was wrong and thats good.

On Shooting with the Canon PowerShot G3 X article (297 comments in total)

I am sure this camera meets some peoples needs but the slow burst rates especially RAW are very sad for a camera of this price range. Even 3 frames a second in continuous would still be half of the FZ1000 but made the canon much more useful and appeal to more people.

TOR8472: I love it when I get to see sample photos in the exact same situation I would want to use the camera! Nice shots, I'm jealous of the photo trip.

This was a very appropriate scene for this camera. I could see this being great here.

My FZ200 was amazing and I miss it. This will be great with these upgrades. A perfect camera for many.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 makes leap to 20MP article (168 comments in total)

This looks like a very nice camera! I think this will be a great seller and great back up body for Olympus lenses since it still has in body stabilization.

Direct link | Posted on Jul 16, 2015 at 04:50 UTC as 43rd comment

My FZ200 was a great camera and now the upgrades I would love to have had. Waterproof is great and the updated EVF and wifi will make this a nice camera for many people.

In reply to:

zodiacfml: Because the launch price was not in touch with the current market. The current change puts it similarly to an a6000, but that comes with an EVF, better AF, and better video. Still, it seems that the a6000 is a better buy.

A modest launch price should put it at $100 more than the GR.

Previously, I suggested a 24MP Sony sensor for the GR2. Yet, I realized it doesn't add value, only to improved the 35mm crop mode feature and will make the camera a bit slower due to the larger files. High ISO improvement is not practically huge.

I like the Sony and see why some would choose it if that was the choice, but I love my GR for pocketability, and the shooting experiences is supreme once you learn it thoroughly. The A6000 even with a 20MM is huge and heavy compared to a Ricoh GR.

Ricoh is half the weight and size. I agree 16MP is a bottleneck and disappointing for fans, but thats enough for me.

I like the A6000 but dont consider this like that. The Sony requires big heavy lens to match the sharpness of this feather weight GR.

On Canon introduces 430EX III-RT Speedlite article (93 comments in total)
In reply to:

phazelag: Does anyone know where I can find a list of Canon Cameras that can act as a commander for this flash or cameras that will support the Canon ST E3 Transmitter?

I know it sounds crazy but I would love it if I could use the G1X Mark 2 or maybe the G3X with this flash as the leaf shutter will allow full power flash up to very high shutters 1/2000 or 1/4000th maybe without HSS lowering the flash power. And radio wireless TTL would be great in a small package for creative shots while traveling.

Thank you that is awesome!

On Canon PowerShot G3 X: What you need to know article (596 comments in total)

That Continuous FPS rate in JPEG and RAW just turned me off from this camera.

The FZ1000 AF and FPS is JPEG and RAW is so far superior its not even worth comparing.

I like Canon colors and I like the compact nature of this camera, but I think Canon crippled this camera with such weak shot to shot performance.

Bexter: I only have two complaints about my RX10 and sadly they don't seem to be resolved:

The screen articulation is too limited (though obviously better than fixed).
The Exposure dial is too easy to move accidentally.

It is still a great camera, especially if you can find one on sale. I don't see anything in this new version to make me want to upgrade.

Brownie314,

I have the FZ1000 and it focuses like lighting. I love the FZ1000 but there were a few things I preferred about the RX10. Water proofing, feel of the body, and the menus. I used to love Panasonic Menus, but they are way to complicated now and not good at showing why something is not selectable. Sony menus have gotten way better over the years. Also Panasonic color is better in general.

I still love my RX100M3 with the exception the occasional greenish tint, so I am shooting raw and using a color checker passport to get good color. This is fine, but not ideal for quick picks with nice color. I hope this new one fixes sonys color issues.
