Technical merit aside, in the US, Samsung has a brand problem. $2,799.00 for an off-brand camera? Good luck with that.
veroman: Why no viewfinder and/or no hot-shoe for an external EVF????
The same reason there is no hot shoe of viewfinder on the Canon S120.
Strange. In Camera Labs review they state "I tested the Canon G7X alongside the Sony RX100 III and found for Single AF acquisitions, the G7X proved quicker and more confident under pretty much all conditions."
These can't be pro lenses, because they aren't white. :-)
Olympus just announced more financial losses for the Imaging division.
I guess they are going to cut costs by selling empty tubes, rather than actual lenses. :-)
A mirrorless camera in a camera bag is just as convenient/inconvenient as a small DSLR in a camera bag.
Just cover the entire body of the camera with something like skateboard grip tape. :-)
rybu: Does anyone know how many of the posters on these forums are Canon or Nikon employees? There's a lot of "pushing a message" from uninformed people here.
Take off your tin foil hat.
From a marketing standpoint, the look of the original G7 X emphasizes pocketability, like Canon's S120 series.
For a complete system, Olympus need an empty camera body to go with those empty tubes. :-)
Andreas Voigt: Empty tubes? Oh boy, looks like the release of those lenses is far away. It's the same stuff they had on display at Photokina... I was hoping to get the 7-14 before next spring.
The depicted lenses are pre-pre-pre-production. :-)
"Has received an invitation from Sony Electronics to join the program."
Sony has sent an invitation to the one professional photographer that uses a Sony camera. :-)
"Olympus Stylus 1s Not Good Enough for Europe or The Americas." :-)
The Sweets Collection leaves a bad taste I my mouth. :-)
In Camera Lab's review they said "I tested the Canon G7X alongside the Sony RX100 III and found for Single AF acquisitions, the G7X proved quicker and more confident under pretty much all conditions."
Since this product is the Tough E-Mount, the original provided by Sony must be the Flims E-Mount. :-)
boinkphoto: My immediate thought was, "And the first time you drop it?"
Note to the New Intern: DON'T touch the lens! :-)
(As a practical matter, anything that expensive must be insured.)
MikeFairbanks: I'm going to move toward real computing tablets that can run regular applications, nut just the crashy ones and filter apps.
My understanding is that Surface Pro can run regular (Windows) applications.
The target audience for this advertising isn't the miniscule echo chamber of Angry DPR Ranters. :-) These folks just love to rant, for the sake of ranting.
I'm not surprised that the nice snake photo was taken by an 11-14 year old boy. Judging by my personal experience, most adults try to avoid snakes. :-)
