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!

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.

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.

HowaboutRAW: I am speaking based on my experience as an "owner" of the camera. I bought it within days and it gave me the wow factor. I don't have ORB in any of my shots (may be I am not nitpicking them with a magnifier glass). That could be because the type of photos I take. People have gripes about S95 and LX5 too; especially with Video.

Whatever, it is still an excellent "Point and Shoot" camera.

On article Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera (874 comments in total)
In reply to:

techmine: Design is not too bad but DPR gave us good sense of the size by comparing it with K5. I am disappointed that Pentax did not go the 'Q' design route which is more retro. It would have fit right into the trend of "cool" retro looking cameras with APS-C sensor. Its more of a Ricoh design than a Pentax one.

Nevertheless, its a step in the right direction - Smaller physical size overall (body + new lenses) with excellent IQ. Alright there is a new kid on the block , now bring on the sample photos... :-)

Right, I just mentioned that it kinda gives you an idea. APS-C sensor Mirrorless cameras are a little bigger anyways.

bb hk: Should they be using lens shift type VR?

Agree, the VR on P300 is astonishing. Really love my hand held shots. Blows my fujix10 and E-PL1 out of the water.

In reply to:

techmine: P310 needed RAW support and possibly a GPS chip. That had been the main feedback from P300 users. You pick any review or user forums, the demand was clear. Yet Nikon came back with the same spec'ed camera (same lens and sensor). Simply beyond my understanding. Oh well Nikon wants to stay in 3.5 - 4 star category with their coolpix lineup, so be it. They don't want to compete with top performers from Canon/Fuji/Panasonic. Wonder why?

Yeah I agree but they (nikon) do that so much so that their whole coolpix lineup never gets the attention from enthusiasts. They must be selling a lot of these world wide to justify producing under achievers.

Direct link | Posted on Feb 1, 2012 at 19:17 UTC

P510 on the other hand is the right step for that category of a camera. A longer zoom range with GPS can lure a lot of tourists and bird watchers. 42x is certainly power packed....

Didn't understand the burst shooting specs. Continuous drive is listed as 1 fps. Really? 1 fps?
