ThatCamFan: I do not trust a piece of tape to not fall off with time breaking the camera.
Well I bought my XZ-1 4 years ago and I've had my grip on it the entire time and it's still immovable. Once you put that grip on. It's not coming off unless you want it to. Unless you....probably expose it to very high heat. That grip isn't going anywhere.
ShatteredSky: XZ-3 please (as in LX100 competitor)! LX100 size, 1 inch sensor, Zuiko-quality lens (like XZ-2), 24-120mm (1.8-2.8), tilt- and touchscreen. Should be possible, no?
I would buy it RIGHT NOW.
mchevrier: There is no point in having interchangeable lens if no other lens match the color of your camera ;-)
But there's black L glass
tecnoworld: The best part of this camera is the exp compensation wheel. Something that more serious cameras are lacking.
I'd rather it be a custom dial personally...then you could have ex comp , A, or SS.
Mariano Pacifico: Cellcams are light years ahead in features. iPhone, Samsung and HTC trounces Sony and Canon.
4k......pdaf....well my s5 does...
mpgxsvcd: Here is 1/2 the capacity for 1/8 the price. You don't need 512 GB right now. Even the best 4k written to SD cards is only 100 mb/sec. 256 GB would be plenty. Especially when you could just buy 8 of them for about the price of the 512 GB card.
Mpg.....that is an epic quote....you made my day!
smafdy: I'll bet people will be lining up to buy these — especially pros.
Finally, something that challenges the iPhone.
I lol to this
Markol: I sometimes see people using tablets for taking photos, so I guess that's the connection to this article being posted on the dpr site. Otherwise I would think that it's slowly turning into a tech-blog.
I see it all to often.
DGates: All those sample pics and no low-light images. That has been the Achilles Heel of the Lumix line. But seeing they used the GH4's sensor in this, it would've been nice to see some pics to compare this cam with my FZ200.
He meant processor probably
5 axis image stabilization? Like the new omd bodies??
Skipper494: Comparing the RX-100 III and Olympus XZ-2 is comparing chalk and cheese. Make a 3' enlargement from both and see the difference. Let's get real here and compare similar sensor cameras.
Yea....cause alot of people do that. Ive printed 13x19's(the largest my printer can print) with my xz-1 with little issue. Not many people make 3 foot prints.... maybe 1 out of 100,000 people will actually ever do that or attempt to do that with either camera.
Wow.....84% in semi pro DSLR group! NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! MIRRORLESS IS FINALLY GETTING THERE!!
///M: confirmation the Canon 50/1.4 is junk, even when adjusted its blah. I had one, sold it as it was reliably unsharp, would never recommend it to anyone.
Its a very old lens design.
rndman: Yeah. on 5.5 inch display you can not make out a difference between 720P vs 1080P let alone QHD...I don't understand it...
On a 5.5 inch phone, you can seen the difference between a 720 vs 1080. Compare the note 2 vs the note 3. There IS a difference.
FRANCISCO ARAGAO: With this design this phone looks more like an ersatz of Sony Xperia.
Its design looks great. BTW I also love the Z2 design as well.
T3: Samsung is simply shameless in their copying and design theft, from their smart phone designs to their cameras. But at least the pricing of this NX mini is more reasonable than what what Nikon wants for their 1" cameras and lenses. Samsung's positioning of this system is more realistic than Nikon's. Nikon is still attempting to position their 1" system as a higher-end system for pro-ish use, LOL. Also, unlike the recently introduced Nikon 1 V3, this Samsung takes microSD *plus* standard SD. With the Nikon V3, even at $1200, Nikon only allows you to use microSD. What's up with that, Nikon? It's nice that Samsung allows you to use either one.
Jwest, EXACTLY. They were the first to announce a mirrorless APS-c sensored mirrorless camera.
ZAnton: Samsung... good in a digital technologies, but total loosers in optics.
Seriously...they makes some really good NX lenses.
QuarterToDoom: Even though I'm staying away from the Oly cameras atm since I hate anything Sony (ie the Sony sensor) you cant deny even if you're a m43 hater that Olympus and m43 is leading the charge to give consumers what they want and evolving camera technology at a very rapid pace. Just look how they evolved since the E330
Im nearly the opposite. I usually wont buy something unless it has a Sony sensor. Right now they simply lead the pack in sensor development. They are just the best. After them id give the nod to toshiba or panasonic and then samsung. Fuji uses sonys 16mp sensor(one reason I bought my xe-1).
AV Janus: I would like to see a sensor that has an ability to stop exposing parts that are about to become overexposed. Or expose a bit longer in the shadows, for more leverage in PP.I guess this is similar.It wont be a big deal if its not automated and available only as selective spots and only by the use of touchscreen.It wont be a big deal if it wont be available in RAW as final output.I would rather see them apply they curves features to RAW and not only for JPEG output. that would be enough for me.
pwilly: Comparing Apples to Apples, the tiny sensor comments are just uninformed. A tiny sensor like a 1/3.6” has a 5mm diagonal. 35mm has a 43.3 diagonal, APS-C is 30mm 4/3 is 22.5mm and 1’ is 16mm. Micro 4/3 folks frequently claim that there is little advantage to FF vs. 4/3 in most photos and that is true. Unless you are looking for extreme low light, or very narrow DOF an equivalent photo can be taken with 4/3. So with just about half the diagonal 4/3 is sufficient.The Nikon 1 sensor has 71% of the diagonal of 4/3. Once again if we are talking equivalent photos the Nikon 1 sensor can take the same photo, but then add the stunning AF tracking and for action there is nothing like it.
The one thing the 1 series does right, is af but it does have the huge dof to play with.
