On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1300 comments in total)

I think this camera's 4K video recording capabilities are compromised somewhat by the fact that there seems no facility to plug in an external mic. What's the point of super-sharp video if the sound quality can never be more than adequate.

Really nice! If I were in the market for a new smartphone and not already in the iPhone eco-system, I'd seriously consider this.

On Relonch brings APS-C image sensor to the iPhone post (41 comments in total)

1MP at APS-C - who's the idiot/s that thought this was a good idea? Who will possibly want to purchase this? If it were a proper APS-C at 16MP+ then there just might be a niche for it somewhere, but this! As AngryCorgi says below - a piece of sh...

So no OS-X compatibility then...that's a shame, I was considering one of these packages until I read - 'Both require Windows operating systems'.

On Fujifilm X100T Overview preview (567 comments in total)

I really like this camera in almost every way, but I'd still prefer the flexibility of a built-in zoom rather than a fixed focal length lens, even if it makes it a little less compact. Also as others have mentioned here, an ISO speed dial instead of the exp-comp one would be preferable. Still...a beautiful little bit of kit! I've always had a soft spot for Fujifilms X-series.

After the sensational spec of the Samsung NX1. Reading about the Canon the next day was rather underwhelming. I think they should of released something more radical. Canon used to be a technological pioneer in this field, not so much anymore, and I've been a Canon user for a decade now. The mirror-less designs over the last couple of years have been far more interesting and usually more compact and light weight to boot. I'm going to switch at some point, actually wanted too last year but financial issues prohibited that in the end - but soon none the less.

Anti-climax then. The replacements for the 7D and 100-400 are way-way overdue! I can't believe its taken Canon nearly 16 years to upgrade a major lens like this!

Ahhh the magical unboxing experience. They copied that idea from Apple too. Only with Apple you get all you paid for in the box. No battery supplied with the camera - what an incredible cock-up!

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2301 comments in total)

With this model Leica are really trying to be
the Apple of camera manufactures. The super
minimalist industrial design, snap on cases,
premium pricing (well they've always done
that haven't they) Yet despite being an Apple
fanboy myself, this camera doesn't do it for me. I
desire a Fujifilm X-T1 more!

In reply to:

peevee1: Terrible choices of color for a beach camera. Black will get superhot under the sun very quickly, blue can easily get lost under water. They should be bright-yellow, orange, red.

Incorrect, water quickly absorbs red and light. When a couple of meters underwater blue stands out much more.

In reply to:

piratejabez: I like everything I've seen about this camera. Love the optional grip and strap. Can't wait to see first-hand performance reports. Way to go, Fuji!

Me too! Looks like they've taken those retro cues from the DF and incorporated them into a much more compact body that'll actually work as advertised! I really want one of these!

Hurrah! I hope this means the end to all that wooden handled Sony crap!

In reply to:

PerL: What will break or make this is the response of the EVF. The one in XE-1 has far to much jello effect, haven't tried the XE-2 though.

It's excellent apparently.

Can't edit posts on the iPhone apparently, so for grammar's sake! The beginning of my post should've read "Being a..." not "Being."!

What an incredibly underwhelming announcement! And its not even available outside of Japan.

How do you connect a smartphone to this? Its not like they come with tripod sockets.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

I know there are a lot of nay-sayer's here, but I like it - especially in silver, I really liked the FM-2 back in the day and the Df remind's me of that camera. I wouldn't buy one, even if I could afford it. Too big and chunky for me, as I'm moving on to compact and mirrorless, but still very pretty - I'm glad it exists.

On Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows article (1396 comments in total)
In reply to:

nearprairie: If that shutter audio was real instead of sweetened, then it sounds like a dead ringer for my F3HP. (If that's already been submitted, my apology for the redundant observation.) And I agree with those who've stated, in effect, a properly--read:classically--designed DSLR is long overdue. This camera looks both intriguing and promising. Bring it, Nikon!

Battlesbridge I believe, a nice offer but I'm currently living abroad for the foreseeable future.
