On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (582 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zoran K: $1200 ???

Panasonic DMC-GX7 with Micro Four Thirds sensor, tilting EVF and 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 lens is $950 !!!

Just wait. The V1 was launched at a similar price and ended up selling for a few hundred dollars.

Photoworks: Olympus needs to work harder on the IQ front. The IQ of the E-M1 is pretty much line-ball with the older E-M5. In fact, the past six m4/3rds from Olympus have all been fitted with 16mp sensors. The E-M1 is now as large/heavy as a full-frame camera (Sony A7/R) yet IQ quality is no better than the miniature GM1 (also fitted with a 16mp sensor).

Sure, that's why those large/heavy DSLRs are dying a slow death.

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (819 comments in total)
In reply to:

Aaron801: I know this is a really ignorant question, but I know nothing about this class of cameras... I'm wondering why a camera so bulky and so expensive is only 16mp?

Perhaps Nikon are using older generation CPU's in their cameras. The Sony a6000 can shoot 24mp at 11fps with incredibly fast auto-focussing, including tracking.

I'm pretty sure 16mp is a misprint. It should say 36mp.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summary article (532 comments in total)
In reply to:

Eigenmeat: 12.8MP at 2014 is a bit of let down at 2014 to be honest. Especially with a sensor this large and lens this fast(less diffraction prone). Sony can squeeze fully usable 20MP 1'' sensor on its RX100/RX10 series (especially the RX10). No reason Cannon cannot squeeze a good 16-18MP on a 1.5'' sensor.

I agree. Canon could also make a little more effort by offering more than just a paltry 30P video frame rate. The RX10 offers multiple frame rates from 24P all the way up to 60P.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: Micro Four Thirds just sucker punched Canon and Nikon. They didn't even see it coming. Now if only we could get Andre Agassi or Ashton Kutcher to advertise for Panasonic people would actually know what m4/3s is.

Yeah, the big boys must be crapping themselves. This camera, after all, has a monster 16mp sensor.

dannyboy5400: Nikon D800, Sony A7, A7R, even the D600 and D610 would be cameras I buy before this thing. Oooh, it has knobs, wow, so impressive.

Is the so? Then what aperture is set on the 50/1.8?

On Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows news story (1513 comments in total)

Why only 16mp? Is this camera designed to shoot at 10fps, like a D4? If not, it should have been 24mp with no AA filter.

Yes again, another Olympus camera with lousy video. 30P is yesteryear.

I agree. But it's the principle that counts.

I like it, but ... 30 fps. Seriously? Olympus have been stuck on 30 fps since day one. What a wasted opportunity!

Sony must be doing some right. The RX1 is ranked #4 in Amazon's Best Sellers.

Will the DP1M be super slow like the DP2M or will it have an improved processor?
