In reply to:

sean lee: Is it about to come next generation of coolpix A?

not as serious as people like to put it
how many situation would you max zoom at low light? for me never
in daylight even F5.6 you go up to ISO 200 will than be OK
no big deal, I would rather have a true pocket camera than a muck bulkier F2.8 at max zoom

I am never a zoom person anyway and if zoom always in daylight

what concern me is if shot to shot speed has been improved and ISO 800 (I won't go higher) also improved
even if ISO 800 not improved, this year we can use DXO PRIME on RAW (not sure if PRIME can be used on jpeg or even if possible useful or not)

Andrew P Moore: I'd hoped for Wifi to be added alongside the induction charging to save needing to open the camera, but it seems they've also removed the induction charging feature :(

are you sure than I have to get WG3

anyone can tell me what's the difference between this and WG3? this being the only difference?
"The new models offer shutter priority mode and a 'User' mode that stores custom settings"
Thanks

On Swimming with the Nikon 1 AW1 article (196 comments in total)

the whole design concept is wrong. It is too bulky, no IS, weak O-ring seal, low battery life

What is needed is a tough version of Coolpix A, Ricoh GR and RX1R (with IS and wireless charging of battery)
that is what the camera market needed
easily sold for $1000 and more

this is a failed first attempt. hopefully more to come

Olympus TG-2 which I own is an underappreciated camera. It is great up to ISO 400
There is a trick that I use to get shot at ISO 400 handheld when ISO 800/1600 is required. Use the continuous shooting mode at ISO 400, take about 10 shots and usually at least 1 will be sharp. Best tough camera at the moment

On Can computer corrections make simple lenses look good? news story (162 comments in total)

Hi DXO Labs
may I ask how many copies of lens do you use to calibrate each lens, lots of variaion between different copy of the same lens
also can I use other RAW converters with no sharpening and just use DXO for lens specific sharpening?
Thanks

Jefftan: anyone notice even with the 10 mm lens weight 470 gram twice as heavy as TG-2. with zoom weight 530 gram also the terrible 220 shot battery life. can't be put in shirt pocket

The $370 230 gram tiny TG-2 is not obslete at all

HowaboutRAW , I understand your pount. at first I am excited too but than I realize lens lose 1 stop, no IS lose at least 1 stop or more. than with at least 2 stop loss, how much better in low light really. again nice first try but at leats IS must be added to make it worthy for the extra size
not using the 10-30mm VR as kit is a serious mistake in my opinion

Jefftan: lens look like can't use lens filter,correct?

thanks but is there waterproof filter besides the official accessory? in Nikon site it said using the official filter and the lens will not be shockproof
can't understand why and a great concern to me

AW1 is a nice try but lots need to improve, it need to be smaller and lighter, have F2 lens, with IS and at least 300 shot battery life. I would keep using my TG-2 for now

My TG-2 fit in shirt pocket and if one don't pixel peep may not be that much different than AW1 between ISO 100-400. Also the lens is at least 1 stop faster than AW1

it is fair to say that TG-2 is still very useful for its size and weight. If you own one you know IQ is good enough between ISO 100-400 which cover many circumstances with its F2 lens.

no 10mm single kit option is stupid as this is what me and many others will use for weight reason

now cost $1000
