  • The first sentence says that they used a production model. Professional reviewers usually get sample units directly from the manufacturers, so they don't have to wait until the products are...

  • That's a flawed argument. The only conclusion we can draw is that Nikon underestimated demand, while Samsung didn't. Samsung likely have produced a much larger volume than Nikon.

  • Nikon 1 doesn't have a 20 MP sensor. They have used 10 MP and 14 MP sensors, and the current generation has 18 MP. And nothing suggests that Nikon has switched from Aptina to Sony.

    As for...

  • Some people evidently use them as like/dislike buttons. I think especially those who click 'I had it' before a camera is even available, do so because they want others to believe that there's...

  • The negative comments are perhaps made by people, who are more interested in the latest technology, than in the practicalities of photography.
    As I see it, a change to a camera design (or any other...

  • You're correct about Taiwan. However, to avoid confusion people not living there should use the adjective 'Taiwanese'.
    China claims Taiwan as one of its provinces, while the rest of the world's...

  • You're confusing two different companies and cameras. Nikon sued Sakar because their Polaroid-branded camera infringed on a Nikon design patent. The camera being reviewed here is Kodak-branded and...

  • JK Imaging is an American company, not Chinese. And the manufacturer, Asia Optical, is Taiwanese.

  • The minimum shutter speed gives the longest exposure, and vice versa.

  • It's a bit unfair to say that Canon is asleep. The G1 X Mark II is certainly a rival to the 1" cameras. It's remarkably compact considering its sensor size and lens, and the image quality is fine....

  • No, it wouldn't. The rationale for normalizing resolution is explained in the article.

  • This is for fixed-lens cameras, so you won't be able to use any existing lenses at all.

  • I'm two months late to the game here, but I have to reply to Peiasdf. Seriously, you're judging my sense of decency and moral fiber based on the fact that I found an April Fool's joke funny? A joke...

  • What's wrong with having something to read while waiting for the reviews?
    The previews and first impressions articles are usually written based on handling pre-production units, whereas the review...

  • Most cameras will work a bit below the freezing point, but the manufacturers don't guarantee that they will. So if a regular camera fails because it was used at those temperatures, it's the user's...

  • I don't know in what sense Fuji and Olympus are major beloved camera players, while Sony isn't. Sony is #3 in terms of market share; only Canon and Nikon sell more cameras.

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    I would interpret "setting the focus point" as referring to choosing the AF point, and not to manual focusing.

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    DPR reviews cameras, while DxO rates sensors. The former is much more useful to me.
    Also, DPR's percentage scores and the awards aren't connected. They're intended to tell you different things....

  • The camera manufacturers usually don't publish sales numbers for specific models, so where is the data that suggests that the LX7 hasn't sold well?
