I found this SONY HX100V lacks of hotshoe for external flash mount. Otherwise it is up to Panasonic's FZ-150. I wonder if people care (worry) about this missing feature when considering HX100v and FZ-150.

I don't know why Sony refuses to add a hotshoe for flash.

On article Pentax unveils Optio RZ18 compact superzoom (33 comments in total)

I like this design. If the IQ holds up to Panasonic's TS10, I will definitely buy one.
Among compact cameras, Sony and Pentax's exterior designs are the best looking ones while Canon's, the most ugly.

Canon and Nikon's reluctance to respond to the mirrorless camera market is merely a fear of their own DSLR share being eroded. Slow action only translates to the intention to succumb to competition and future failure.

Diversification of their product line is the way to go.

Aleo Veuliah: I think this lens will go to outperform the old 14-42mm, good lens and nano coating

Definitely. Because the old Panasonic 14-42mm kit lens is the most crappy lens among micro 4/3 system.

Little bit pricey. Lower price and increased market share may be what Samsung should put their focus on. Smart marketing is far important.

Why does Panasonic single out G1 and G2 users? Are we cheap users that Panasonic won't bother caring about?

I think there are more G1 GF1 and G2 users than GH2 GF2 and G3 users.

On article Richard Franiec grip coming soon for Olympus PEN E-PL3 (38 comments in total)

I see a lot of people whine about the lack of grip on the E-PL3. For me, I wouldn't buy the camera if there were one on the camera. The grip ruins the sexy look of this fine piece of jewel.

Photo quality is good if not amazing. Given Sony's HX100V at $400.00, Panasonic's price is not impressed at all. Will buy it when price drops to below $300, which is my best offer.

Wow, ISO3200 beats my Nikon D50's quality on ISO800.
Thanks.

olyflyer: Maybe it is time for me to have a serious look at this camera... I liked the NEX ever since the NEX3, but the lack of built in VF stopped me from showing a serious interest, but now with this new camera it is different... The only thing I don't like (from what I read so far) is that stupid Sony specific flash shoe. Why can't Sony use the industry standard established a very long time ago is behind my comprehension.

Anyway... Excellent work Sony and good luck with the sales.
Looking forward to the full review.

Sony should learn the lesson taught with their beta home video system over the most popular VHS one. As a matter of fact, all these annoying non standard flash hotshot, memory stick (vs SD), ATRAC (vs MP3) will hurt Sony's sales rather than help.

Vladilena: $200 and I will consider it! :) This looks small and easy to carry around.

$200? I think Pentax won't stop tossing up our consumers's pocket until they find $2000.

Panasonic made a big jump on image quality/noise handling.
Nice shot. Thanks

On article Sony launches DSC-TX55 touch-screen CMOS compact (42 comments in total)

It doesn't accept standard SD cards? Going to Micro SD makes thing nasty. If Sony can accommodate a Memory Stick card, they can an Secure Digital card as well.

absentaneous: sometimes I really don't understand the logic of camera manufacturers. if the dpreview specification sheet is right and it should be also from looking at the pictures the E-PL3 and E-PM1 cameras don't even have a built in flash! while the E-P3 one which is supposed to be aimed at more advanced users has one! before the story was the way around. the less advanced E-PL got the built in flash and the E-P didn't. and that made sense because an advanced photographer is more likely to even want to use an external flash anyway. I really wonder how many potential E-PL3 or E-PM1 users are the kind of photographers that would want to bother with an external flash unit. I mean really, you bother making a really small camera and then you make it in the way that it need an external flash unit which makes it's small size irrelevant. no logic whatsoever. the only logic I see here is to make more money selling external flashes. I wonder how many people are stupid enough to buy into this.

I bought an E-PL1 instead of an E-P because the former gets a flash. They actually don't care about what you need, but the money in your pocket. Considering adding a flash and an EVF, the total price is almost on par as a more sophisticated DSLR (like a Canon T3i) but the portability is pretty cumbersome, not what it is expected to be.

Hope that Ricoh will kill the Q.

Very nice blurred background, even at F6.7.
Is it the 50mm 1.8 lens?

Thanks.

rocklobster: M4/3 comes of age. It's going to be hard for the Pentax and the Q system. Ironically, the Q system makes Olympus's system look non toy-like in comparison and the new (Oly) lenses add further weight that will make more serious photographers stand up and take notice.

Ironically, for Pentax, I have been looking at entry level DSLRs and the K-x is selling here in Oz for about $650 including a Sigma 18-200 zoom. So, its a toss-up between it and the new Olympus system with the Q system not figuring at all in the equation.

Cheers

I bought an Olympus E-PL1 which I liked a lot. I am not saying it is perfect, not bad at all.
If you are torn between APS-C and M4/3, consider their prices. M4/3 gear is not cheap. In the long run, you are likely to spend more money on M4/3 than on conventional DSLR systems.
Personally, I think Canon 600D or 60D,7D has the best performance/price ratio, only if you don't hate Canon.
Lived in Australia for 10 years, love OZ.
Cheers, mate.
