Combatmedic870: Boooo! Where's the 23mm!?!?
Oooooooooooh! I must have missed that since its getting pushed so far back due to the XC series, carry on.
Boooo! Where's the 23mm!?!?
Artistico: So, in addition to the already bad selfies everywhere, we'll now also have photographers taking selfies every time they take a picture. Are we sure this is something we wish to unleash on the world?
I just LMAO when i read this. I agree.
Still no minimum shutter in auto iso... Everything else looks good.
Itai42: Definitely performance... "decent camera and long-lasting battery" is dead on target... I'm really waiting for unlocked Lumia 1020 (and the upcoming review - but I expect Nokia nailed it with this phone).
Im not much of a WP type of person, but a phone like the 1020 could change my mind. Its a nice phone. It doesnt have the newest or greatest of alot of things, but im sure that doesnt matter.
Impulses: Anyone have any experience using mSD cards in an SD adapter on a regular camera? Would they still operate at their rated speed? I've noticed the market's starting to turn and the same capacity mSD card is now often cheaper (albeit usually slower) than SD, the speeds are getting close too.
Your better of just buying a regular class 10 uhs1, they are cheap.
Something that actually works and does what it needs to do.
First it needs to be able to make phone calls. If it cannot do that, then the phone is a complete fail. (Galaxy Nexus was the first phone ive had within the last 5 years that dropped phone calls, it was a fail)After that, connectivity. It needs to have great wifi and bluetooth.If it cannot hold on to and retain a LTE signal, its a fail.
Everything else is just a want.
I guess Im a performance type a person. It needs to work.
Would be ALOT more interesting with AF.
Michael de Ruijter: What are we supposed to do? Grab a fistful of dollars and toss it away?
Yep, I agree. When i donate it goes to wounded warriors.
Almost Everywhere else, only around 10% will actually ever make it somewhere to help.I used to give blood to the red cross until i found out they would give it to other nations, and then, they would sell it back to US govt for soldiers.fail...
Its not a mirrorless or a dslr....Go troll somewhere else.
Combatmedic870: I think A samsung NX camera should have been mentioned atleast.
I have read nothing but great reviews about the NX300. It with the 30mm F2 is a very nice little combo.
I dont own an NX camera. I just feel they should have been mentioned. Or atleast the nx300 that is actually a very good camera.
Seems like it has to be EVF compatible in order to have any mention.
I dont know, I feel that they should have atleast get some type of mention.
The last FW they released turned the nx300 into a beast.
They were the first company to produce a aps-c mirrorless camera.
I think A samsung NX camera should have been mentioned atleast.
ogl: I'd like to see more faster lens.
Jkoch, its sensor isnt even a 1/1.7 sensor, more like a 1/1.95 sensor.
Look at the measurements.
LX7 10MP 6.7x5.1mm** MOS
Fuji 1/2" 6.4x 4.8 mm
G15 12MP 7.44x5.58mm CMOS
Combatmedic870: Im disappointed.... I really feel they could have done more with it. Heck I could have improved it more then this(front dial, 1/4000 SS, Improved the lens)!
Well....Im sure its a good camera.
@Peevee, you dont have to be an engineer to improve upon something!You look at something, hmmm, this could be better and you IMPROVE IT. Im sure you have done that. I replaced the intake in my car, did it improve it....yes...am i an engineer...no...I put a franic grip on my XZ-1, did that improve? Yes it did, am i an engineer? No...I engineered my own wrist strip for my XZ-1....did it improve the camera? Yes it did, am i an engineer? no? Just a Medic? I believe it says Combat Medic, Meaning ive done things in my life that you would have pi**ed your pants doing. You could have just left the medic part out of it.....Just had to go there. Man!....Urgh! Being a combat medic means i can take out your lacerated spleen, Engineer a stretcher, Take you to a broken down hmmwv, fix it, and take you home safe and while under fire.
Now say your sorry
fibonacci1618: This is not a rear-element focusing lens and remains the same as the old 20mm f/1.7 (i.e. front-element focusing). It's sad they did not take the trouble to improve on that aspect from the old lens. I suppose changing the AF method to REF would have required a radical change to the lens design and it would no longer be the same lens... But so what?
I agree, they failed.
DElliott: The AF apparently hasn't been improved. Still not an IF lens. Just a repackaging, it appears (although perhaps they've fixed the banding issue). See this site:http://panasonic.net/avc/lumix/systemcamera/gms/lens/g_20_a.html
Excerpts:• AFC does not work for still image recording.• The LUMIX G 20mm / F1.7 II ASPH. utilizes a lens drive system to realize a compact and bright F1.7 lens. As a result, sound and vibration may occur during focus operation, but this is not a malfunction. • Operating sounds will be recorded when auto focus is performed during motion image recording. It is recommended to record with Continuous AF set to OFF, if the sound of operation bothers you. Also, it is not possible to set the focus mode to AFC.
I dont understand it, what a fail on there part. How hard would it have been to replace the motor in it and made it so it focused faster and silently. I was excited to hear that they re did this lens(one of the only lenses that really needed updated. turns out they didnt really update it!!!!!!!!
You'd like to see a faster lens.
I completely agree. Even F4 on the long end would be great. 3.5 would be ideal, even if that meant it needed a lens cap.
Did they improve the AF motor(faster, silent operation?)? I dont see a mention of that.
How about a 50mm lens version!? Well i guess it doesnt matter, I cannot afford it anyhow! LOLI'd buy a 50mm F2 version if i could though. 35mm just isnt my thing.
