techmine: Wasn't NX20 more appropriate camera to review. This review is just the extension of NX200. NX20 review could have given more information about Samsung's DSLR look alike particularly with respect to the viewfinder, grip and speed.

Thanks for the info. Can't live with a slow camera. Have a D300s and it take 7fps with almost no buffer issue. Can't imagine a life with 1fp5s :-) I would have bought N210 if it had a viewfinder accessory.

Most people think it's a copy cover camera. I don't find a camera with 20x zoom on a 1/2 inch sensor with PASM modes in the market(Fuji has one). Also most people don't know how good is the EXR sensor on these fujis. Now no GPS? I agree that's a bit of a step backward. With WiFi everywhere, building a camera to upload pics to social sites is cool too.

On article Is Instagram 'debasing photography'? (291 comments in total)
In reply to:

BoostedBB6: Could it not be said any alteration to a photo (regardless of the effect) is altering the story told by the photograph?

What I find with "photographers" these days is there is no time taken to compose a good shot or think about the shot they want...just hold the shutter and hope you get something you can PS till it looks good.....film is a great way to learn to shoot. This is where I started and it truly gives you a much better appreciation for photography and catching that amazing shot the first time.

To each there own, but I love the fact that there are more people taking more pictures...history captured in a picture IMO. Love it!

Well said.people call Photoshop tricks as darkroom developing for digital world. And for Instagram - stupid? Double standards.

My X10 serves me well as compact camera. I am looking forward to FZ200.

On article Just Posted: Nikon Coolpix P310 review (156 comments in total)
In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Nikon please go back to the drawing board... like you should have, with your failed 1 series...

The Canon IXUS 100 IS (SD 780 IS) just blasts this P310 into oblivion. And to think the Canon uses the same size sensor and came out 3 years ago, in 2009!

It also has an OPTICAL VIEWFINDER. One of the smallest P&S to have one!

Nope. I'll buy another second hand Canon IXUS 100 IS from eBay for the exorbitant amount of... (trumpets)... $35

.

Clearly you haven't used Nikon P3xx cameras.while others have pointed out how wide and bright this lens is, the macro and IS in these Nikons are amongt the best I have ever seen. These cameras lie at the tipping point where enthusiasts P&S cameras take over like S95 and LX5 and X10. This camera takes great Macro, food, pet shots.

LJohnK2: ....18-300 yawn....as a DX shoter, I'd be alot more impressed with the rumored 16-85, f4 or a refreshed 80-400.

The 24-85 is interesting and would seem to be the precursor for a Consumer FX body, but for consumers the future is smaller, not bigger ?.... so not sure what Nikon strategy is here.

"If you want to go really small and lightweight: forget about legacy APS-C from any manufacturer and go MFT."

You forgot the nice and tiny APS-C packages from Sony and Samsung.

Touch screen, hybrid focus, pancake lenses - all indicate mirrorless camera is coming?? :-)

hmmm same discussion again. I would be mad too (like a lot of us here) but it allows me to take a lot of good photos in conditions where other P&S would fail miserably.

"Late evening low light shots". More hits than misses.

Thanks for explaining the Nokia 41MP DPR! I was waiting since morning :-)
Overall a good news. This is innovation - good or bad we will find out. The samples look very good. I like the colors. I would love to see a video out of this baby. Yes I agree with others, why can't this be Android (limitations? or just WM7 jail?). Nevertheless cellphone makers are putting more and more thought behind cameras which is again a good thing.

When I took this photo the ORB issue was just a smoke so I thought this is just a harsh bokeh (under harsh conditions). Ever since the issue has become a full blown fire, I am trying to count the number of ORB's in this photo.

I still love the photos that come of this camera under normal conditions!

frank2001: I've only had my X10 for less than a week and I love it!
The color out of the camera is as good as it gets. Equal to Olympus IMHO.
This this...inane ranting about getting an "orb" if you shoot a bright street light at 20 - 30 seconds at some ridiculously small aperture means the camera is "bad" is silly.
I think some of these guys don't even own the camera.
Reminds me, you old timers will remember this, putting a lens cap on your Nikon Coolpix 9XX and seeing GASP "DEAD pixels!" and demanding Nikon recall every camera.
Sure, you can reproduce the phenomenon if you try hard enough but why?
Geez people go shoot some pictures already. If the camera doesn't suit you...send it back!
JMHO You may disagree.

@Jmmg thats really sad to know. I can imagine what you are going through right now. Could you please upload some in your gallery so that all the X10 owners could have a look?

I don't like Facebook's new Image viewer (I am a heavy FB user). Google's idea is similar to Flickr where everything turns just like a slideshow. FB's overlay type viewer is distracting because sometimes its does not cover the whole background (in case the image res is lower).

And whats with showing ads in the comment column Facebook? It is the worst place to put your dumb ads. Please change it.

micahmedia: You missed the only thing I care about: both strip EXIF data, and so, are worthless.

Google+ retains some of the EXIF data. See options menu at the bottom of the photo. Obviously it won't show anything if it is stripped at the source.

In reply to:

David Clarke29: Whatever, I shall keep the X10 - HOWEVER I find it totally beyond belief that a company the size of Fuji could let a sensor design fault as portayed by the X10 pass acceptance by their quality assurance department.

The whole thing smells of commercial expediency and marketing pressure. This particular camera suits my shooting requirements but personally I will never again believe the marketing hype issued by Fuji or/and their accolytes again. Needless to say, further Fuji purchase is a no no.

Francis Carver: eat whatevery **** you like. don't comment on equipment that you DON'T OWN.
