  • I take better pictures when I've got the settings on the camera right. Better manual controls on the Panasonic, for me, would lead to better shots than with the Sony. If Sony put the RX100 innards...

  • Fuji is a far smaller company, they release a good product as soon as they can, then continue working on the firmware after release.

    Frankly all the patching that goes on at Fuji concerns me as a...

    I never...

  • @Zeisschen, I believe they said that the small flange distance makes developing FF lenses for E-mount difficult, and not currently worth the R&D. Hopefully they will change their mind, their APS-C...

  • Have you tried an articulating screen? My last two cameras had them, and I used them all the time. Shooting your camera at waist level can have huge advantages. My best street shots were taken like...

  • @falconeyes the 5100 also significantly cheaper than both and has the versatility of changeable lenses with a much larger sensor. The a5100 isn't setting anyone's pants on fire these days but it...

  • @Morten - a big part of that is whether the manufacturer has given them samples, whether they have a PR firm breathing down their neck etc. Friends working in marketing for brands will phone...

  • @Boss of Sony - I have the 35mm f1.8 and it makes it a much larger more awkwardly shaped camera than the LX100. Good lens, but you can't change the focal length either. Why do I feel like I'm...

  • How surprised must the industry be that the two most praised cameras of the end of 2014 are both 12 megapixels? The A7s and LX100 have had professionals and enthusiasts excited in a way I haven't...

  • I agree, anyone who doesn't believe in tilt screens should try walking down the street (or around a group of friends) with the camera at waist or chest level with the screen out, looking like your...

  • Ah but if only those small lenses were any good. If only we could all bring ourselves to leave the house with only a mediocre 16mm f2.8 prime attached to our lovely camera. I speak from personal...

  • As an example - I went on a 3 week trip recently with my NEX-6 - I took 4 lenses. That means I went everywhere with a camera bag. If I thought something the size of an LX100 could free me of that...

  • Also unfortunately at the moment Sony doesn't have a very good low-profile lens. Put the 35/50 1.8s on and you've got a much more awkwardly shaped camera. If the 16mm pancake or powerzoom were any...

  • We might not hear very much about JVC in the stills community but (anyone correct me if I am wrong) they have been one of the dominant players in consumer and prosumer video for a long time. So...

  • Tecnoworld: sounds like it might be time for you to get a Sony A6000?

    Or wait for the NX400, Samsung know it will have to compete with the Sony, it may have a lot of (but not all) the tech of the...

  • I think the fact that firmware overrides manual settings would concern a lot of people, even semi-enthusiasts. I also suspect that a lot of the demographic who will buy this camera will not be...
