On Canon PowerShot G7 X First Impressions Review preview (954 comments in total)
In reply to:

Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: When I read the name "G7X" I wondered why canon is messing up their naming with Panasonic (they have GX7)
But then, Canon powershot started using "G" before panasonic Lumix G. So Panasonic must use something else. Otherwise it's confusing!

Not to talk about 2 canon powershot s200. One was launched in 2002 the other in 2013.

In reply to:

Galbertson: Well, have reached my limit...or patiece..to continue my hopes of getting into x-t1. I truly was beginning to believe i could overcome non tactile rear tiny buttons. But this breaking news of light leaks has forced me to lose faith in fuji. Just gotta move on to sony a7, maybe a6000.

By the way, before you tell me of sony's own light leaks, at least theirs was in relatively common area around lens mount, fuji's from side of camera, flap. Whereelse in body is a failed part? Not willing to wait to find out.

To be sincere I do not understand the recent FUJI hype. Fuji X10 was a camera that had orbs.., other cameras have autofocus issues.., now the light leaks !!!! But reviews keep praising the camera. Each new camera is deemed much better than the previous and I feel perplexed. How come much better than the former one.., given the fact former one got praised from reviews all over the web ? The former one was supposed to be out standing lol. Being so it does not make sense the next one could be much better !!! In short : I guess people got in love with the retro style and just forgot camera primary function which is taking pictures.

On CP+ 2014: Hands-on with Sigma DP2 Quattro article (249 comments in total)

It looks the engineers in charge of the development of the camera did smoke weed in the morning they decided about its final design. I though DP cameras were supposed to be small. Look how huge the camera is !!! Besides the ugly grip does make the wholle thing even less pocketeable. Will it sell ? No.

gabriel67: WHY can't they understand.
We expect something closer to Fuji X series!!!
This is the same useless buff they made before but newer..
FAIL

Camera is awesome, Gabriel. Actually I bought 2. If you read reviews of people who actually bought it...,you will see people are happy . Amazon France : Customers give EOS-M 4,5 out of 5 stars. Amazon Germany : 4,5 out of 5. Amazon US : 4 out of 5 stars. I give the camera 4,7 out of 5 stars. Meanwhile your wonderful Fuji X has backfocus issues, acording to some.

rdscibilia: What about comparing this to the EOS M.

EOS-M is a wonderful camera. And the turtle flash is not so slow after the firmware upgrade. EOS-M was maligned. That was nice for th people who bought one. they got a wonderful nice, incredible camera for the price of a point and shoot. I have one,yes.

HomoSapiensWannaBe: I know it isn't as compact, but $99 more gets me the X-A1 with a 16-50 lens, much larger sensor, handgrip, hot shoe, tiltable rear LCD and many other benefits. Still, this is progress compared to the XF-1, though I liked the manual zoom ring on that.

I did not like Xa1 samples. For less money you get the canon eos-m , with an apcs sensor.

On First Impressions Review: Using the Canon PowerShot G16 article (352 comments in total)
In reply to:

2001: When I bought my G9 it was the compact camera of choice., it could shoot raw, it had full manual controls and a magnesium aloy body. It was one of a few compacts a professional photographer considered. This was in 2007. For me this is where my interest in the G series ended, although still excellent cameras , compact iLCs with aps c sensors and interchangeable lenses and being able to use old Lieca , Contax and Angenieux lenses via adapter for the same price as G series camera ended my enchantment. I remember the outrage when the G7 didn't shoot raw. Given that the new bodies are plastic, the price is high and the sensors are small and they are made for professionals who are aware of all this, I wonder how they even sell at all. The blunders of the EOS M and now this ? Can't Cannon at least put an aps-c sensor to at least make it worth looking at ? Cannon has more than proven they make excellent ones. can't imagine buying this camera, I think others feel the same. 9 fps per second is nice but not enough of a rationale to get the camera. Is Cannon asleep? Is a stubborn moron in market research holding everyone hostage at Cannon ? Are they trying to lose a lot of money and reap the rewards of an obscure subsidy or stock option of some kind? I really can't account for any reasons Canon has for making an obsolanete camera and figure out why anyone would want to buy it? I remember when Canon made the best cameras on the market from the 1980's until now. Nikon and Sony are catching up and in some ways even surpassing Canon. Canon's response seems to be bending over backwards to fail. Hopefully Canon will wake up, otherwise the mid 2000's will be remembered as a once great maker a remembered fondly in spite of it's failures like a Voightlandänder and the German camera industry before they lost out to the Japanese in the early 70's

Hi : You ask :" Can't Cannon at least put an aps-c sensor to at least make it worth looking at ? ".
G1X has an APS-C sensor.., and was not popular !!!
People complained a lot.
The G series at the time , sold much better than the aps-c canon which was the canon G1X.
In fact the september 2011 when a small sensor G was due , canon did not launch any G small sensor camera.
January 2012 G1X was launched.

It was a flop

In reply to:

Musikboy: Surprised at how Canon keeps ignoring the market overall. Still one more iteration without a 24mm wide lens, still just 12mp and a small sensor compared to the now leading RX-100 cameras. Still too heavy, still too big.

Just my opinion.

I also 100% agree with whataboutraw.
The g12/ g15,,etc continue to be very popular. This is the reason canon does continue to make them.
When it does come to more pixels in a small sensor..,canon make a good move.
Less pixels are better.

On Nikon 1 AW1 preview (587 comments in total)

I guess this new camera is an acknowledgement that the initial V1 , was not a success. ( In fact their price did drop a lot).
I do not think this camera will be a sucess either.
How many people do underwater photography ? Not many.
The demand will be therefore rather small I believe .
Let us see.
BTW : I am a V1 owner but I bough it at a heavily discounted price.

i do not see this product being successful. People use smart phones in their pockets. Smart phones with huge lenses are not practical. Casual shooters will never use them .And people really interested in photography will prefer to carry real cameras.

Never buried or in the middle of a pallet and great view throughout!
Pointless.

I agree : Nothing new here. Why are those pictures considered art and millions of others are not ? I have seen much better pictures taken with cell phones.

On Nikon addresses 1 V1 and 1 J1 flaws with firmware v1.2 article (41 comments in total)
In reply to:

lacreed: I like this camera, even with its quirks. But I upgraded to firmware version 1.20 and I reckon the shutter speed it selects is still too slow to avoid blur from subject movement - and there is still plenty of ISO room to move.

Oh well, I'll keep using it as I have been: that is, in manual mode. select my own shutter speed and let the Auto ISO adjust the exposure.

Exactly. I also did the update and also noticed the shutter speed was too slow lol. I wonder what the Nikon fellows were thinking. Besides more and more people are entering the senior age therefore their hands do shake. Being so , faster minimum shutter speeds should be advisable. People should have the option to select a minimum shutter speed . 1/8 seconds. 1/15 seconds . 1/30 seconds . 1/60 seconds. 1/90 seconds. That is not rocket science I guess.
