On Samsung debuts Galaxy Gear smartwatch post (20 comments in total)

From the front its completely ruined by those awful dated looking exposed screw heads and from the side - its a real fatty!

What a terrible design! Samsung should of kept this in the lab. If Apple are working on a smartwatch of their own, they've got nothing to worry about here!

Canon's G series compacts need an EVF to replace their awful optical one's.

steelduck: Why?

Exactly! Signs of desperation on Nikon's part, due to the photo savvy smartphone onslaught? Just release a photo optimized smartphone of your own and be done with it...might even sell - maybe?

A handsome quality looking product. Resembles Leica's M series lenses a little, which is no bad thing and maybe even deliberate!

The lack of an external mic option is an extraordinary oversight on the part of Panasonic! As their cameras are supposed to be amongst the best in the business when it comes to video. The field-sequential EVF also seems to be a bit of a step backwards too.

qwertyasdf: I hope the in body IS works well. Because seriously, Panasonic in lens OIS sucks.

Maybe that's why they developed this new in-camera system.

This is a very well-specified little camera! But I'm still hoping against hope that Fujifilm release an XE-2 in the Autumn - that's the camera I really want (I've had it with the bulk of DSLR's), if they don't I think I'll go for an XE-1. Just something about Fujifilm's X-series cameras that appeal to me, despite this new Panasonic being a seemingly much more sophisticated camera.

"bought-out by private equity group Ventizz" - I didn't know that! Now it makes sense why the venerable Hasselblad is now producing this crap for all those tasteless nouveau-rich with more money than sense!

Not keen on these cheapo-plasticy XC series lenses. I hope these two are the only ones they're going to make. I thought Fujifilm's 'X'-series of cameras and lenses were supposed to be quality premium products.

Great photo capabilities, impressive for a smartphone. But the smartphone specs themselves are a bit below par for a high-end phone.

Nice photo,the lichen hanging off the trees gives it an almost dream like quality.

On Canon videos showcase 70D's innovative AF system article (145 comments in total)

An impressive demo. But being a predominantly stills photographer, I'm mildly concerned over the still image quality of 40.4 million photo-diodes on an APS-C sized sensor, despite being combined to produce 20.2 MPs in that mode. I hope Canon have cracked it and are able to provide the best of best worlds. But I'm not going to get too excited until full image quality tests are carried out on this new sensor/ image processor combo.

So no phase-detection AF like with the X100S then. I thought Fujifilm would be standardising on this tech across its X-series cameras by now. I really want to see a successor to the X-E1 soon too.

On Truly 'moving' images post (15 comments in total)

The cinemagraph is quite captivating - for a little while. The animated GIF though is just annoying. But they're both just looped images - how long can you stare at such things before getting fed up? Its not something you can come back to years later and still appreciate like a good photograph. Still I like the idea of say having a photo of a model with the sea constantly lapping the shore in the background or say a sheet of fine fabric blowing in the wind...but again the appeal will quickly waver.

Clear Photos in Dim Light: New Sensor a Thousand Times More Sensitive Than Current Camera Sensors

May 30, 2013 — Cameras fitted with a new revolutionary sensor will soon be able to take clear and sharp photos in dim conditions, thanks to a new image sensor invented at Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

I've been reading about the miracle properties of graphene for years now, being a bit of a science geek - but the R&D never turns into a bonafide product for the market place. Its like the boy who cried wolf too many times - you don't take it seriously anymore.

Interesting tech - it would be nice to see such sensors utilized in Fujifilms X-Pro1 and XE-1 successors.

On Leica announces X Vario zoom compact with APS-C sensor article (757 comments in total)

If this camera had come with a full-frame sensor like Sony's RX1 rather than an APS-C, then maybe that purchase price wouldn't seem so out of touch with reality. It would of made for an interesting take on the luxury compact concept.

At least the Lunar has interchangeable lenses, not the joke of a lens this one comes with! The Lunar's horrible too mind.
