On High-end full frame roundup (2014) article (539 comments in total)
In reply to:

Alex Permit: Strange to include the RX1R, a great compact fixed lens camera, in a roundup named "Heavy Hitters: high-end full frame roundup". While it is "full frame", it is not, nor does it pretend to be, a "heavy hitter".

Stranger still to exclude the D4S and 1DX because "they're aimed at working photojournalists and sports photographers." Its like excluding the Klitschko brothers from list of heavyweight boxing contenders because they're too tall.

The RX1 is small and remains very expensive. It is the mother of all compacts. I'd be tempted if it were $200 to $300 more expensive than the A7.

Awesome. Someone could use this feature and then reduce the resolution for pixel sharp photos.

Seems brilliant to me in the crowded digital stills market.

@TTMatt
thanks Matt. It is exactly my point. Good luck on the development and the whole project.

Oh my, a camera maker giving what the enthusiast wants? This is absurd!
I would never have thought 5 axis IS would be possible with FF.

On Sony debuts 21MP stacked CMOS sensor for smartphones article (94 comments in total)
In reply to:

RichRMA: You can't bend the laws of physics. Sensors can be made any which way, but the small ones will never, ever match the larger ones. Back illuminated, electron-multiplying, it doesn't matter. They are modest enhancements that produce a slightly better product, but a 1/2.3" sensor will never be a m4/3, APS, etc.

Yes, of the same generation. The sensor in the G7X is as good as the first 5D in terms of noise and DR....yetthe larger format can produce sharper results.

yawwnn..

Interesting....but will have to see how Google will respond since it has been a while that I have been using their services.

If MS could work with Adobe for integrating Onedrive with Lightroom....then I will be more interested.

On Post-Photokina polls - Tell us what you think article (198 comments in total)

I have chosen 1inch as the minimum just by giving thought to the RX100 and Nikon V for their abilities. For image quality alone, I would have chosen 4/3 sensors as minimum.

This is a serious camera compared to the GM1. I have seen many tricked out LXs throughout the years. It is also not comparable to the GX7 when taking lens quality alone.

Now that the LX100 is out with a fixed lens m4/3, I would love to see Panny with a prime lens m4/3, with the same philosophy of the Ricoh GR or the Sigma or a m4/3 sensor in a CM1.

In reply to:

Notomb: Lost opportunity, FF right choice. Insane Samsung market. 1500 dollars for a APS-C camera?? Who buys? Pentax k3 user? Canon-Nikon user? A7 user?

Nope. The specs are high end all over (except the appearance)....and to me makes the new 7D less awesome. I just hope the NX1 gets an in-focus hit rate at least same of the 7D.

Finally, putting up a fight against Sony! It is all good but Sony seems up to something in January.

rfsIII: Yeee haaaa!!!! Finally, the phone of my dreams. As a person who shoots events from time to time and needs to upload photos to client websites while the event is happening, this camera will solve a lot of problems for me.

I can only dream of that amount of money for a non serious camera. Yet, very good effort from Panny as this better than Samsung's.

In reply to:

gxtoast: There still does not exist on the market a dual 2.5" HDD combo that allows configuration in RAID 1 (mirror). Large capacity drives make mirroring much more cost effective while enabling simple and solid fault tolerant storage.

I'm also really surprised that we haven't seen similar large volume, yet slower, SSD mirrored storage using low cost TLC chips. Slower compared to regular TLC SSD speeds, but much faster than 5400 RPM 2.5" HDD speeds.

Weird. Particularly so when considering the rising desire to have fault tolerant storage, especially for portable use where HDDs are susceptible to movement and being dropped or bumped.

Go figure. No one was doing mirrored portable USB last time I checked a few months ago.

I agree but a hard disk covers more customers than an SSD since it is cheaper and with at least more than twice the space.

With my experience, it is hard for me to fill a 16GB SD card in a day in RAW. With 32GB and 64GB cards becoming more affordable, I would not need to delete/move the files elsewhere from a trip or shoot and majority of us have more than one card. The external drive would be for redundancy in case of data corruption or lost card/camera.
