On Enthusiast compact camera 2013 roundup article (227 comments in total)

I still think this camera is in the compact category since it is simply not in a DSLR with a mirror. The abilities and price though is pretty much far from the established category........ because it is just well ahead from its category just like the RX1.

sportyaccordy: Why not just do 4 sensors... R, G, B, luminance

Less filters -> more sensitivity; more resolution too.

Damn, you beat me to that.

peevee1: Wait, wasn't A3000+18-55/3.5-5.6 going for like $279? How low are they aiming this thing?

for the price you mentioned, they're going to rake in more profit.

i think there is a market of these. I have seen GE with DSLR like compacts that is quite selling in some countries.

In reply to:

Zoron: no built-in stabilization....so no for me.

At a 30mm equivalent, then one would be fine 1/30 with steady hands or good technique. Combine that with the f1.7, I say that it can do without stabilization for pretty many of low light photography.

I wouldn't mind the price if I needed that very nice video quality of this camera.

On Samsung announces tiny NX mini mirrorless camera article (79 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: How is this better than a Panasonic LX7? You get a brighter lens with a bigger zoom range for a lot less money. Sure it has a bigger sensor than the Panasonic. However, the Panasonic's lens is much brighter(More than 2 stops).

I don't how much advantage there is in a faster lens in good light....but I believe only the similarly size (or larger sensors with the same price) sensors is comparable to this new Samsung.

In reply to:

JEROME NOLAS: I am not sure what to think about this camera, but I think it would stand a
bigger chance if the lens is built in, like RX100.

...but that would be slightly inferior rx100 or unless they price it significantly less than an RX100.

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1047 comments in total)
In reply to:

dko22: downloaded D4 as RAW developers in general and Photo Ninja in particular don't yet support the S and there's no point at all in just looking at the comparometer which is known to smudge Fuji XTrans files.

I had expected the D4, which at worst is only slightly behind the D4s, to have a clear advantage at 6400 over the Fuji XTrans cameras but in fact carefully looking at various parts of the low light image in Photo Ninja with both types of noise reduction (v3 and v4) at standard settings and also with noise reduction completely switched off, the overall result seems to be comparable with minor advantages for one side or the other in detail or noise depending on exact setting and parts of the image looked at.

I still find it hard to believe that my X-E1 really is as good a low light performer as a current Nikon FF but this is what the DPReview files show when downloaded and examined in a competent developer. And the Fuji is clearly ahead of the D7100 to which it should be comparable

The FF has a faster shutter speed in the test, aside from that, there is 0.5 or +1 stop in favor of the Xtrans.....which it seems there is little advantage in this Nikon.

In addition, the RAW files from the Xtrans is not reliable to compare to other sensors.

In reply to:

Jim Salvas: What a cheapskate packing job. The outer box, which has been re-used, isn't big enough for protection and the peanuts don't even match each other. Did someone salvage those from eBay buys?

Who packs a $6,000 camera like this?

Maybe because the D4s is tougher than the common smartphone or computer....

On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (597 comments in total)

Now I understand Canikon mirrorless strategy.
Nikon is not seriously selling this camera because this is just R&D for them. As long as DSLRs continue to sell, Nikon won't be serious with mirrorless. They do bother though so that they will be prepared once mirrorless takeover the market.

He kept insisting the Dual Pixel tech that they have but weren't aggressive enough on their product lineup. EOS-M with that technology will put some serious competition. Even if they announce such a product this year, it would still end up too late.

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 First Impressions Review preview (622 comments in total)
In reply to:

Vlad4D: Not fair comparison. For example on ISO 6400
Olympus has shutter speed 1/2500 but Nikon has 1/4000.

Noise should be compared at identical shutter speed and aperture.
With 1/2500 Nikon will get about twice less noise than on 1/4000.

Some companies continue tricking customers and I see that dpreview continues to support it by publishing those unfair tests.

This is the reason why MFT seems close to other formats. ANyway, it would require a different test to show the true difference between formats.

I'll take this for the price of a nexus 7

In reply to:

greypixelz: that's a bunch of bull! "pushing the envelope", wack! more like giving it a new spin, but Olympus is certainly NOT pushing any envelope in the imaging dept.
even though I am not a fan, I reckon only Sigma is really pushing the envelope here against a considerable pull-back from the mainstream and with relative success.
truth be told, Olympus is just another speck of dust in the canon-nikon-sony comet which currently lead the mainstream.

since I'm a fan of Sigma, I will agree. :) yet, Olympus has the 5-axis sensor stabilization which is still impressive.

I guess they were smart enough that this would be cheaper than lose a lawsuit.
