“ Mirrorless is 'probably' the future”

Battery technology has to improve a lot to achieve this...

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

I prefer the light color scheme. The white text on the black background stay on retina and really disturbs when checking the photos.

White is a bit too “light”. I think light grey would be maybe even better that white.

Fantastic low light performance!

PKDanny: What size do SD Quattro H's sensor?

Here's some more info:

"The biggest differentiation between the Sigma sd Quattro and the sd Quattro H is the latter's 26.6 x 17.9mm APS-H sized sensor, providing a crop-factor of about 1.3x instead of the 23.5 x 15.5mm APS-C version's 1.5x crop factor."

JurijTurnsek: Why bother producing the non-VR version? Does this mean that low range Dx bodies will get the lesser kit lens and the mid rangers will get the VR version?

lots of heat here...

For video recording tripods etc. are often used and in these cases VR is not needed...

They doubt nobody ever landed on the Moon. Even a photo of a waving flag seems to be a fake.

“On the moon, there's no air to breathe, no breezes to make the flags planted there by the Apollo missions flutter”

Weird...

In reply to:

Laszlo13: Strange that there are different interpretations of the images. To me - detail and tonal range seems improved at base ISO (200) over EM5-II. It falls somewhere between the EM5-II and A6000. Both RAW and JPEG. At higher ISOs, i.e. 1600, the GX8 does show more color noise than the E-M5II, slightly, but with still greater detail. I always find Fuji to lack detail, both RAW and JPEG, in every single comparison, including this one. Yes it's got clean images, up the ISO scale, but show less detail and tonal range.

Anyway, to me, the sensor while improved is not a huge improvement at base ISO, and minimal at high ISO (if any).

As a Fuji X-M1 user I can tell that the loss of details in Fuji X cam's RAW files seen here on DPReview is due to the use of Adobe Camera RAW in conversion. ACR is just not good enough for it. I use Iridient Developer and it gives a much finer images and resolution.

Using ACR for all cameras fundamentally demonstrates ACR's capabilities, not that of cameras.

I have nothing against WIndows. I run Virtualbox occasionally. It's good enough for using for some specific and rare programs I can't find for OS X. Virtulization would just totally break my workflow of photo processing.

I use CS6 and Elements.

Meuh: Is this the same AF as in the k5ii with f2.8 center point and the ability to focus in low light?

yes, check a proper hands-on preview at imaging-resource.com

They do it professionally and don't fall into sarcastic comments like here at dpr ("no blinking lights").

In reply to:

R Stacy: " ... downsides are limited buffer capacity, slow live view AF, and poor camera control from a smartphone."

And yet you give it a 90%........... wth ???

No bias here of course.

FWIW I sold my D7000 with a premium Nikon lens because the images frankly sucked along with Nikon's ridiculously complex menu system.

Having owned and used four different Nikon DSLRs and two Sony NEXs along with three Olympus Pens and one Panasonic G, Pentax DSLR and Fuji X cam I can say that Nikon's menu system is NOT complex. Each of the systems are different and require some learning. My experience is that Nikons one is in the better end of all mentioned above.

Cheers!

In reply to:

Fabio Amodeo: The real question to me is: can the NX1 really shoot 15fps with focus tracking? If it can, the demise of DSLR is getting nearer. Both the mirrorless and the DSLR have structural limits: for mirrorless it's processing power, needed by the many functions concentrated on the same circuit; for DSLR it's the mechanical limit of mirror ups and downs. If Samsung has really broken the first limit, the others will have to follow, and soon. So I think the whole industry is asking itself the same question: where will the declining money be in the near future? In my opinion, the vision of Fuji and Samsung (and Leica, but that's another story) is clearer that that of the other players, which seem hesitant on the road to take.

I tried it at Photokina. I didn't time the shooting speed but it was quite bloody rattling the camera kept...

I was quite disappointed by the buffer depth, though. I managed to freeze the camera after the first burst—had to remove the battery to clear it. Samsung NX line has become famous for a small buffer over past years. They seem not to listen the reviewers... :(

On article Photokina 2014: Quiet but significant (164 comments in total)

Having tried all the new cams at the expo I'd say the LX100 was the most interesting one. D750 and 7D Mk II come next. Surprisingly, I was underwhelmed by Canon G7 X. I felt it a little cheap and IS didn't feel very effective. It might have been just a pre-production model, though...

Anthony Sullivan: G16 also has peaking in MF mode, it seems :
http://www.microsofttranslator.com/bv.aspx?from=&to=en&a=http://cweb.canon.jp/camera/dcam/lineup/powershot/g16/feature-mode.html

No mention of a peaking function on Canon USA's site.

techradar preview says:

"Manual Focus Peaking has been introduced for the first time in a Canon compact camera. It's a technology that has existed in Canon's range of video cameras before, and we have seen it from other manufacturers fairly recently. The sensitivity of focus peaking can also be set depending on how strong you want it to be. Different colours can also be set, which can be useful depending on the subject you're shooting."

The new sensor of RX100 II seems to be very good, indeed. See this comparison against Nikon J1 @ ISO1600. The RX100 II image is down-sized to the size of Nikon J1: Source: http://www.imaging-resource.com/
