On Photokina 2014: Nikon stand report article (98 comments in total)

Thom Hogan is not a happy Nikonian: "One self-imposed problem that Nikon just keeps facing is that it isn’t truly satisfying its most loyal customer base. The QA problems, the lack of good customer support and communication, coupled with the totally missing products, the lack of upgrades of significant products, and the strange emphasis on overlapping FX bodies at higher price points, are things are slowly eroding brand loyalty. At a time when you’d want brand loyalty to be highest so that you can better weather the camera sales downturn."

brownie314: Where is the EOS M3?

The M3 is in the same place as the T6i and SL2. :-)

Does Canon's stand acknowledge the existence of their EOS M line? In the USA, their last EOS M anouncement was in July 2012.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1864 comments in total)

Many/most people who buy interchangeable lens cameras never go beyond the kit lens. Large-sensor compacts will push MILC into an even smaller niche.

On Canon PowerShot G7 X First Impressions Review preview (949 comments in total)

This is a larger sensor version of the Canon S120, which also doesn't have a viewfinder or hot shoe. I don't see anything wrong with that.

If Nikon would have made a camera like the RX100/G7X, I suspect that it would have sold a lot better than their Nikon 1 series.

The JPEGs should be better than Sony. Sony is known for overly aggressive noise reduction.

On Nikon D750 First-impressions review preview (1422 comments in total)
In reply to:

astigmate: As a D700 owner, I feel...hum kinda betrayed by Nikon. So, this entry level, crippled camera is supposed to be the D700 successor ?! feel like an FF D5300 !! I'm tired of waiting for them. I'll keep my D700 until it dies and will look into fuji or sony stuff now on.

Oh, btw, the Sony Full-Frame A7 (24mpx also) cost HALF the price asked for the D750 and it has 1/8000s shutter, focus peaking, nice EVF etc

For whatever it's worth, Thom Hogan says "it’s really a fixed D600/D610".

On Olympus PEN E-PL7 First Impressions Review preview (494 comments in total)
In reply to:

Andrew Butterfield: I can sort of understand the conclusion here, since it took me a week or two to get my E-M10 set up to how I liked using it. But now it is, I'm extremely happy. Everything is just how I want it. Okay, so I spent nearly two hours trying to find something in the menu once, but you get over these things. And so will the average user. If you're the sort that likes setting things, you will be able to figure out even how to set up an Olympus camera.

The marketplace was crying out for pulsing green LEDs on a camera's grip. Well done Ricoh-Pentax. :-)

If you want a red dot, wait for the Chinese-counterfeit version of this camera. :-)

On Samsung NX3000 real-world samples article (143 comments in total)

At least in the US, Samsung has a brand problem. Why buy a Samsung, when you can buy a camera from a Real Camera Company?

On Sony a5100 First Impressions Review preview (590 comments in total)

It's too bad that it comes with a particularly bad kit lens. Photozone writes "the Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS broke a couple of records but unfortunately not in the positive sense. Its uncorrected distortion and vignetting figures are nothing short of insane."

I selfishly miss John the most. So many great songs never written and recorded, because of his murder. He was always my favorite Beatle.

Some camera company should buy the GoPro brand name.

In reply to:

Wallace Ross: Not sure why I bother, the Q doesn't need me to defend it but it's the most fun digital camera I own and if some people don't get it then what ever.

Taking photos is supposed to be oh-so-serious. A fun camera just won't do. :-)

On Ricoh expands Q series with Pentax Q-S1 article (362 comments in total)

Among other cameras, the Canon G16 and S120 compacts also have 1/1.7-inch sensors, so I don't see anything wrong with the Q concept.
