If you love nature, then leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but pictures. This reminds me of the article regarding the incredible, one-of-a-kind, massive wild boar - that some buffoon shot and killed. These are simply expressions of human greed, not a love of nature.
Artistico: Surely you could have come up with a better and less obvious April fool's joke than that, DPreview? Not to mention a better photoshopped picture with the lens. And, as everyone(?) knows, the reason the old Zuiko lenses are so compact is the large film-to-flange distance of the old OM cameras. It simply wouldn't work on a body like that.
Oh well. Better than no joke, I guess. Kudos for trying. I'm sure some people were fooled.
You will need lots and lots of wine (or drugs) in order to find any Monty Python film funny.
April 1st? OMG? C'mon.
topstuff: Image Quality is not fantastic. Seems on a par with my RX100.
I do not think it really matters here.
I think I will buy one, if only because of G.A.S.
Shame about the 30p video though.
Let's face it though: The RX100 color accuracy, tone curve, and AWB are just nasty. I like my RX100, but if it had decent color output - or could even be fixed 100% in post - I would LOVE it.
This is a complete load of s**t. I've been to Sochi and the entire premise behind this series of photos is a farce. Sochi is a dump and a city of savages. The buildings are crumbling, the water is contaminated, and they poison/shoot dogs in the street.
How much does Cicala pay to get his advertisements disguised as articles posted here? I'm just curious.
Great set of photos.
Love the photo, but not crazy about the color.
Capable of taking fantastic pictures ... at the beach.
This just brings a smile to my face. :) Great capture.
Not a fantastic shot, but not bad either ... beautiful young lady.
bzanchet: I wish Sony RX100 have the colors of this Canon! Would be great to combine the sharpness and low light ability of the RX100 with the color on the Canon S series!
Agreed! Sony's tone/color/AWB is pretty awful, but I tolerate it b/c the camera just puts out some damn fine IQ.
Gimmicky, but kind of intriguing as well.
That makes sense since Nokia were virtually the only ones pushing Microsoft's crappy phone OS.
Too bad he only shot them with a camera. They're wasting precious oxygen on this earth.
That's actually pretty amusing. Will it have the poor Sony color reproduction as well?
Boky: something's seriously wrong with the colour.... does't look right, especially warm spectrum.
This is par for course for Sony. The color accuracy on the RX100 was awful and the score it received on IR supported that.
Better AE? Better color accuracy? I didn't think so. Fixing what was broken would have excited me more.
