Greynerd: Living in gale battered England it is always intriguing how in the US you can build houses on the beach. You must have very good weather most of the time punctuated occasionally by storms of the like we never see.
The reality is that there will always be an occasional bad-weather-event, so even if there is usually reasonable weather, building a house almost in the water to start off with is moronic. It never fails that the same idiots who build their houses on the beach or below sea level act surprised and shocked when weather does arrive. We are all supposed to pretend its a tragedy, but the real tragedy is that anyone was foolish enough to build in these locations in the first place. Stupidity is tragic.
absolute waste of money...
They should be selling this for right at $1000. Not sure what the extra $300 on the price tag is all about.
Image (a) is ridiculously awful, while image (b) is just plain terrible. I'd prefer NEITHER please.
Meh...I have seen very, very few complaints on DPR of people getting bad results from adapters, and I swear the pickiest people on Earth use this website. In practice, its just not a real issue.
MrTaikitso: I don't think these a special at all I am afraid and cannot believe how people on DPreview commenting think otherwise. My Samsung Galaxy Note (original one) took way better pictures. More punchy, clean etc. The noise in these is terrible and that's even allowing for it being a phone camera. (I have no bias towards any manufacturer.) Sorry to be a bubble burster!
My Samsung Galaxy Note.........I have no bias towards any manufacturer.
These panos look freaking great for having been made on a camera phone. Really nice stitching on the image borders. I'm shocked.
The 1 system was dead, but this actually delivers a small breath of new life. Having a niche product and pricing it like a mass-market product should ensure it gets a lot of looks at least from that small market and maybe even some looking for more flexibility.
Glad to see a conventional sensor option in the lineup. Will be nice to see some results from a good-old Bayer-filtered sensor. :)
Greatly appreciate them offering a non-xtrans option...if this rumor is legit. They have opened up another category of the market that was annoyed by the raw-processing issues and demosaicing weaknesses of the x-trans scheme. The x-trans filtering scheme has some benefits but also some critical weaknesses.
Congrats to Fuji for a move toward broader acceptance.
Interesting, but even in bright daylight, the image quality is terrible. The samples on their website are noisy and grainy in all conditions.
Very nice. Seems Nikon is finally listening to consumers in regard to their P&S cams. Same great lens and sensor and now a much desired good-resolution EVF. Well done!
Oh well...good price, but the highest I have is CS2. Guess I lose out and still won't be buying in.
This is the ugliest design for a smart watch I've ever seen.
If the QX100 was the size of the QX10, it would be a LOT more attractive.
$500 with no raw support? No thanks.
So they have good on-sensor AF married to the same poor DR sensor they've always had. This is starting to sound like a broken record. Please, Canon, do some serious upgrades to your designs and fab-shop. Even Samsung (NX300's sensor) is passing you now by a fairly wide margin. You don't appear to want to compete anymore.
Shoulda titled this "Wolf in Cheap Clothing?"...that EVF doesn't belong on any even remotely serious camera. I was really hoping for a little less compromise (not the 2.4M EVF but maybe something in the 1-1.4M dot range), but this thing belongs on a P&S (see LVF1), not on an ILC.
BB guns and spears?? People had guns and spears??? I wonder how people got hurt.
AngryCorgi: Neat idea...and by "neat" I mean "stupid" and "ill-conceived".
I have an rx100 with a eye-fi card I use to transmit to my ipad/iphone, but never have I thought the ergonomics would somehow be improved by duct-taping the camera t my phone and controlling it via wifi. Unless they've worked some SERIOUS magic from what is currently available anywhere else in terms of live wifi control, it's an inherently compromised setup. And it looks fugly.
