Michael Piziak: wow, 4 articles on one camera in one day.

@Barney Britton

I tried to communicate an article Idea to R. Butler in a conversation we had some time back. No Reply.

What is the proper place to submit Article Ideas?

In reply to:

Geir Ove: Excuse me, is this something to make a Front Page topic?
Other than generating more reads....
I posted a message to DPR and suggested an interesting topic, no answer so far...

I see the point from a commercial standpoint.

However, if the only goal is to generate reads, there are lots of stuff that will generate reads, but that does NOT add any quality to the site.

In reply to:

Geir Ove: Great camera, BUT No GPS, no interest!

Why do we have GPS info in programs like LightRoom if the cameras can't provide the GPS info?

Yeah, I know I can synch with a Phone with GPS, but IMO way to cumbersome...

DPReview: Why not start using lack of GPS as a Con in your reviews?

After all, we are spelling year 2014....

@Mike FL,

My phone has GPS, and it lasts for days even taking pictures.
AND, why not add the option to turn off the GPS, then the USER could choose! No excuse for not including GPS in 2014!

Geir Ove: Hello DPReview Staff,

When can we expect to see the X-E2 Review? I have to resort to other sites to find Reviews nowadays; this is not like it was in the Phil Askey days...

@Hugo808

Thanks, I already knew these facts. However, the same things can be said for every Canon and Nikon incremental model as well: Does this mean DPR should only review the first model, and then state that the newer models are "almost the same" QED ?

In reply to:

peevee1: "3 fps with continuous AF" tells that PDAF does not really work yet.

Not necessarily: It can be that the lens and / or the PDAF processing line is the bottleneck. AND; it does not tell us anything about HOW good it is at 3 fps: It can be excellent (hopefully) or...

In reply to:

Stitzer23: If only DPR would provide one ISO3200 shot of the dimmed test scene with each of these previews. I'd consider half the full review done :-)

How come then fujirumors.com/first-look-fujifilm-x-e2/ has loads of sample image at this time?

DPReview:
Errors in review: Seems to refer to the X-E1 in places where the text should read X-E2...

E.g.: "The X-E1's movie mode still feels like something of an afterthought"

In reply to:

Pavel Sokolov: Where is GPS/GLONASS??? Wtf guys? I don't want to search for an actual locations where I took the photos.

I could not agree more ! It cannot be battery life: On my Smartphone, I can take hundreds of GPS tagged photos without running out of battery! I just bought a Fuji X-E1 to replace my clunky Canon 50D. I have to use an external GPS to to GPS tag my photos.

BUT, this is indeed the last camera I buy with NO GPS: I just love how I can see the location of all GPS tagged pictures (in LightRoom etc)

No Built In EVF - No Buy. Even my Minolta A1 from 2003 managed to have a BUILT IN EVF...

In reply to:

GeorgeZ: It MAY cost more with the OVF than the EM5?
It costs more even without it!
The EM5 now is € 1099 here with the 12-50mm, the E-P5 will cost as much but with the 14-42mm.
And if Olympus doesn't change its policy, that price will be the fixed price for the first couple of months, maybe by then the EM5 will even be further reduced.
The P5 is certainly a nice camera but Olympus is asking too much.
The PM2 can be found for almost a third of the P5, the E-PL5 for less than half- both with the same sensor/engine.
I just don't get it Olympus.

The missing EVF is such a let down. I have the XZ-1 with the extra EVF, but it makes the camera clumsy to handle....

Come on, is a built iin EVF that complicated? My old Minolta A1 had one back in 2004-ish...

The way Stephen Elop has handled the excellent product Damian created, the Nokia 808 Pureview, I do understand that he leaves Nokia:

Damian helped create an excellent technology that Elop has tried to hide: Where are the ads for the Pureview? At least not in Norway.

Oh, yes, that's right, the Lumia 920 (was it) uses the "Pureview" technology, or at least a lobotomized version of it with an 8 Mpix sensor:

And here I thought that the PureView tech was all about downsampling a High Res sensor (41 Mpix on the 808) and doing clever image processing in the process...

Good luck Damian, I certainly hope that Landrover / Jaguar knows to appreciate your talens!

Geir Ove: Hello Sony,

Your technology is exciting! I will buy Sony equipment and replace my outdated Canons as soon as you include a GPS in your NEX Series ! PLEASE!

Geotagged images saves me a LOT of time: No more fuzz with "where on the earth is this"? And, LightRoom now supports Geotagging !

So sony PLEASE: EVF and GPS, and I'm sold !

Hello,

Yes, that's true, but all External equipment adds to the bulk that I am trying to get away from.....

So, built in EVF & GPS is what I am shopping for, on a Sony !

The A77 has both (if my memory serves me right), but I would want a NEX with both...

On Sony NEX-6 Hands-on Preview preview (229 comments in total)

Sony, listen:

Yet another camera with everything BUT a GPS?

I bought a Nokia 808 with GPS, and the convenience of GPS tagging has really sold me on this feature: No more "Where was this picture taken".... And, displaying the pictures on a Map adds a new dimension to the joy of photography

Thus, I am amazed at all the new gear with all kinds of bells and whistles, but NO GPS ???

I will NOT buy any camera in the future that does NOT include a GPS !
