There are lots of rich people in this world, sadly not me
Question is will I buy this if I am rich? Answer is no
Lots of lens I would buy if I am rich like Zeiss Batis for Sony FE

Why? the weight. If I can stand the weight which I can't
at 400 gram roughly the same weight,
12-40 F2.8 would be much more useful although 2 stop slower

On article DxO OpticsPro 11 brings advanced Raw noise reduction (106 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: I wish DxO [view point] will have better De-fisheye ability/control for "Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 Fisheye (MFT)" for example.

I do not have lot of experience for PP software, but I think "DxO view point 2" is on par with others in terms of De-fisheye based on my limited knowledge.

So, does any body and/or DPR know a better De-fisheye software?

Is there lens profile for using DXO Viewpoint to de-fish?
I mean all automatic? Thanks

In reply to:

Dr_Jon: I've now done some tests with 11 and I'm still not happy with the moire handling (well, as the moire I was trying to fix looks the same with the moire tool off and set to maximum I suspect "lack of moire handling" would be a better term). It seems the same as DXO 10 which is very annoying to me. Other than that I think it's a great product and the advances to Prime seem really good.
(Silkypix Pro 7 fixes the moire without even ticking the box to fix moire, which is very cool, the moire brush in Lightroom also fixes it.)

On article Primer: What is VR, and why should photographers care? (142 comments in total)

Instead of asking people to buy $1000+ computer, they should

charge a monthly fee and do the computer computation outside in a data center
than the image (or data) is transferred using high speed internet to the VR headset

This seem such a good idea but why it is not working that way?
Not possible? if so why not

Neodp: THE TIME FACTOR & history repeating:

Once upon a short while ago, the 'TZ' (ZS in the US) was the NEW culmination of a travel cam with "AMAZING" new abilities. Those total pros and the even with the inevitable cons was the envy of pocket travelers. For like a day. What did we learn?

That was with the tiny crap sensor; that was embarrassing at 400 ISO. Therefore I am the resident complainer, right? Now with your 'huge' [Trump] 1"; I guess I must be sent packin'.

No people. This is history repeating. These are through away cameras even still and that would be just fine; except they are not priced accordingly! Do NOT believe 1" sensors must be expensive!

It's your right to be stupid; no doubt. As the lady said, "This too is not meant to last." So better to lusted (and got sick) than lost, right? No really. Knock yourself out. FREEDOM. Just do NOT lie to your self. These are soon found on garage sale tables for $20. So burn baby burn; as that is your prerogative.

By the way at ISO 100 I am still surprised with a sharp lens how close LX5 can get to image quality of my MFT GM1

Don't underestimate small sensor if one is not doing low light
even at ISO 400 fine if not very demanding

Anyone care about value
would buy good lens instead of compact
good lens can last 10 years and offer real value

compact can't last as long
that said, my LX5 still working so maybe not

In reply to:

The Jimmy 86: I own a LX100, heartening to see it still sitting near the top after over a year on market. I imagine Panasonic will have an LX200 out in a year or so.

The LX100 is my main camera now. I particularly love the time lapse function and the sync speed of 1/4000. My Canon DSLR can't kill sunlight anywhere close as well.

If a slightly lower MP count and a lack of touchscreen don't bother you, this is THE compact camera.

"the sync speed of 1/4000. My Canon DSLR can't kill sunlight anywhere close as well. "
what is that mean? sorry but what is the use of sync speed 1/4000
u mean flash sync speed?
what is kill sunlight?

there should be a poll if one can get only 1 of these as a gift, which one would they choose

I would choose Rx100 iv for the super slow motion video
2nd pick would be LX100

with F2 or better

no RAW
why? must have feature

Link | Posted on May 11, 2016 at 10:37 UTC as 17th comment

14mm F2.8 can use lens filter or not?
It seem to have a build in lens hood that would stop the use of filter
anyone know?
Thanks

On article Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap (144 comments in total)
In reply to:

mrmrbill: Custom SLR "Glide One" is an option that addresses the reviewer's "cons" whilst keeping the same great features.

So Black Rapid the original and Glide One the imitator?
Which is better? like more comfortable and more easy attach/detach?

BlackRapid, Glide One and this Slide Camera Sling

Is there a consensus which one is best in terms of comfort and ease of put on and remove

Thanks

smartphone is a small sensor , fixed focal length camera
It got a sensor , a lens , a screen
it is a camera

Problem is the only traditional camera company that profit from it is Sony selling sensor

Link | Posted on Apr 27, 2016 at 20:26 UTC as 29th comment

No matter what, I will not buy another 16MP MFT sensor
I have already buy 4 cameras with this sensor
Yes this time without AA filter, so what
even if u believe Panasonic , it increase resolution by 10%
so increase 1.6 MP?

Panasonic should put the 20 MP sensor in. It fear it would hurt the sales of GX8 and annoy current GX8 owner

But that's there problem, this is a new camera model in 2016 and it should be 20 MP and called GX8 II
I don't know how many would buy. Not me. It is not cheap and a new camera model in 2016 should not be 16MP

On article Fujifilm X70 Review (358 comments in total)

Don't understand what Fujifilm think? Who will buy this?
The very over-priced X-pro2 camera at least got some captive buyer that have XF lens

with nothing better than GRII, only worse
Really they think there will be hardcore fujifilm fans that will buy this?
Reality will wake them up

Fuji fans may disagree, most in the photographic community still prefer Bayer sensor
X-trans not a feature but negative

On article Upwardly mobile: Sony a6300 Review (2123 comments in total)
In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: So I skimmed the review and did not see the answers to the following questions. If I missed them I apologize:

Does the A6300 lock out many functions after a burst? I purchased the A6000 based on your recommendation but the lock up makes it almost useless for sports.

Can I take a picture while taking a video? (as I can with every camera and phone that I own except the A6000)?

Thanks!

DSLR allow picture taking while taking video?
Anyone know?

I can told u can't take a pic while taking video
this is not just A6300 but almost any mirrorless camera i know

only exception I know is Panasonic GM1 which only allow 4 pics and buffer fill up
have to stop video and start a new one for another 4

i don't understand why most camera lack this feature
as I think this is very useful and an important feature
