LTZ470: Huge amount of light could have shot this with 25mm f/1.4 with ISO 400 handheld...
f1.4 won't give you sharp focus for objects close and far from the camera at the same time, you'd resort to stop down the lens by a 2-3 stops and ISO 2500+
peevee1: High ISO looks worse than Nikon P7700, but better than Fuji X10, which is commendable.Look at the globe for clear difference in readability.
RX100 is of course much better.
Do not forget, G15 has better IS than RX100 as well.
At all focal lenghtes from 34mm -100mmG15 is faster by 1 full stop or more.Now you see, that RX100 is loosing in low light completely unless you resort to 28mm and soft corners with RX100.
Rachotilko: Guys, stop the RX100 BS, please !
With its f/4.9 at tele end, it has to resort to ISO1600 when these small-sensor marvels can use ISO400 to keep the same shutter time for the same scene.
This ISO1600 vs IS0400 handicap can not be offset by the advantage provided by its larger sensor.
So: enjoy your "invention", and let the rest of us enjoy the fast lens.
G15 has 1 full stop of advantage at 34mm+which increases to 2 stops at the tele end.People who take pictures at 35mm/50mm/80mm will be better off with G15.IF you shoot 28mm only, enjoy soft corners of RX100.
Jan_Shim: I love the G series and I own a G11 - vari-angle LCD and 1cm macro are two very strong features of this camera. CMOS sensor in current offering holds a lot of promise but it saddens me deeply that current model (G15) took away the two key features that matter the most (as above). So devastated. I hope future G series bring them back.
Same here, I am in love with swivel screen of G1X.G15 does not have it but it helps it to be trully pocketable.
Next time use Nightshot handheld for this type of shot
What is the point of this picture?
Is it a Gingerbread house?
Someone went berserk with clarity setting in the Lightroom.
They clearly demonstrate what IQ one will get in the standard low-light shooting scenarios.Even with the super-bright lens of Olympus one will be forced to go over ISO1600 or 3200. And this is exact output what compact Olympus delivers. Not bad for ISO5000, imho.
peevee1: Where are low-light pictures? Where are action pictures? The static subjects in daylight are simple for any $50 P&S (or free cellphone camera), is it the proper way to evaluate $500 camera?And why ISO is not displayed for pictures #2 and #3?
Yes, great shots, Guys!
There is a crocodile in the pool on the left side, croped out.And the staircase was removed on purpose.
