I'd rather burn money on a Zeiss Otus and a D800e.

In reply to:

Docmartin: Lossy RAW compression in a FF camera? This is a no go !!!

Sony advertise the A7/A7R as 14 bit colour depth, but apparently it even lags behind the 12 bit of smaller (e.g. MFT) sensor cameras?

I hope it can be solved with firmware update.

Put a small lcd at the back so I could verify framing then I would be interested...with an Rx100 sensor, at least.

Nah, too long for low light photography and price is at Leica levels, not even twice the price of the 45mm.

On Hands-on with the Nikon D3300 and 35mm F1.8G lens article (141 comments in total)

In terms of capability in IQ, there is nothing else to ask for since it is already comparable with its brothers, and clearly ahead of its competition.

Yet, the sensor is overkill for almost all lenses except one. My point is, this sensor would be excellent for a fixed, prime lens camera like the Coolpix A.

On Canon shows off new PowerShot N100 'Story Camera' article (163 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sdaniella: :)
Canon's N-series dcams with dual cameras and articulating lens/screen is unique. and can be fun. no more added complexity of doing PIP (when desired like we see on documentaries for TV or movies). either way it's optional, and "human selfies" are an option because no one will restrict it to people-only subjects on the 2nd camera when it could be action/scenery in another direction.

no smartphone (or others) offers this.

not even Samsungs with front/back dual lens/screens on dcam or smartphones have lens articulating option, and differ none in shooting perspective from most other fixed dual front/back lensed smartphones/phablets/tablets/laptops with only a single monitor.

it's no more/less narcissistic than have one lens/screen facing you.

girl....this is too obvious.

This is awesome. I still remember asking for this kind of test during your review of HTC One.

I would like to see your follow-up on this using Nokia's RAw capability. I tried processing those and I find myself enjoying the image quality of the files.

On Have your say: Best Fixed-lens Compact Camera of 2013 article (91 comments in total)
In reply to:

mumintroll: I know it's not year 2013, but the best fixed lens camera is Sigma DP2 no doubt. IQ is FAR!!! better than all other fixed lens cameras on the market. All Sigmas Merrill are superior.

Don't believe? Check this photo of Prague from merrill DP3.

The DP series could have win it by default by being the father of large sensor, fixed lens cameras.
Yet, I voted for the Ricoh GR for the unusual balance of performance, price, and usability.

What the...
I thought EOS-M would be perfect for the Dual Pixel AF.

I'm not a fan of anything Apple or smartphones as a camera, but for social photos, it is the iPhone 5s.

On Sony DSC-RX10 preview (725 comments in total)

I hope the price drops fast. As an IT guy, I would like to recommend this camera to the school I'm working for. I think this is one of the niche's this camera slots into.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

Nah, distilled photography experience on digital can be found on Sigma cameras. It works betterl in RAW so you, the photographer, will have to capture using RAW and develop them yourself.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

A lazy attempt. By current specs, this should be around d610 pricing or even less.

There's little effort given to this product. It feels like a special edition of the d600.

Good interview, worth to read. Almost too honest. I find it hilarious to read that his boss don't understand the QX series. Not only it's cumbersome to use, but the Sony application itself is not reliable (as I've heard from reviews).
