to me Sony added 4K to A6000 and double the price
Are u serious, Sony?

I am going to replace my aging NEX-5N with either the original A6000 or A7
both excellent value. I think I would choose A7

Is this a BSI sensor?

Direct link | Posted on Jan 5, 2016 at 23:10 UTC as 13th comment | 1 reply

For same sensor size if I have to choose
1 stop faster lens but 3 times zoom
or 10 times zoom but 1 stop slower lens

I would of course choose 10 times zoom
surprise it take so long for a 10x zoom 1 inch sensor camera

Panasonic finally nail it this time. Now it has no competitors
The only such product in the market

This is what LX camera should be
LX camera should always be a pocket camera
That LX100 camera concept is wrong. No wonder it don't sell well

Neodp: Price. LOL.

But hey this is the RIGHT basics for a pocket ultra-zoomer. Could be better m43 and bigger; but if you want this size.

street price will fall to $500 within 6 months, I predict

mosc: I was super excited!

Maximum aperture F2.8 - F5.9

And then I wasn't

:(

I am super excited
this is the first time a pocket size mega zoom with a big 1 inch sensor!
and 4K video

what's wrong with F2.8 sensor? This is not a low light camera.
But even if someone have to take pics at low light, F2.8 is still OK

this is a ground breaking product!

$450 4k video!
amazing

Most interesting product from all company thus far
surprising it takes so long for the 1 inch sensor to be put in a super zoom
10X zoom much more useful than other large aperture 1 inch sensor camera

Price is high but it probably would fall to $500 eventually
I will buy, good product

why? F8 diffraction?

Frank C.: 35mm...
too wide for portraits
too narrow for landscapes
the no man's land of focal lengths
what is there to like??

I agree with Frank C.
35mm is useless
28mm at least,24mm better
u can turn 24/28mm into 35mm by digital zoom but not otherwise

ZJ24: I like the bravery of the choice (affordable ILC) and the photos. Is it just me or does the shot at ISO 6400 look pretty decent, especially for an APS-C sensor? - looking on an uncalibrated monitor, but I've seen a lot worse that high for a non-FF sensor. Enjoying these features.

My nex-5x, a 16MP Sony sensor has excellent high ISO
same sensor as X-A2

It works, I use many years
Highly recommend

people should not dismiss it without using it
i am an early user of the program, it works

it has many uses, like sending image to friends
my most precious pics of course i won't compress but there are many casual pics that can use this to save a lot of space

very slight difference at 100% if look side by side but really so small not significant. Even that slight difference may be psychological. The program is getting improved all the time, maybe now is even better

On article Olympus shows gains in first half financials (139 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: After losing money for years, it seems Olympus made the right decisions to reverse that trend. They now have two consecutive quarters of profitability.

They virtually eliminated their low end P&S models, and focused more attention on their high profit OM-D cameras and PRO lenses. And this isn't rocket science, it is precisely what every other MILC camera maker has been doing too.

It worked.

The low end of the market is forever gone, taken away by smartphones that keep getting better. The only way left to stay in business is to focus on high profit products that do things that no smartphone can do. This means, high end ILCs, rugged cameras, and cameras with large optical zoom ranges.

E-PM disappear
XZ series disappear

Can someone told me where I can go download a NX500 4k movie file so I can test if my computer can play it?

Thanks

Bueche: Quote from the X-A2 summary.....
" It uses a 16MP APS-C sensor with a traditional Bayer array, rather than the X-Trans array used by other X-mount cameras.This has disadvantages (X-Trans sensors do punch above their weight a little when it comes to output resolution) but the upside is that Raw files from the X-A2 are more widely supported by third-party Raw converters."

This is (it has to be!!) an extremely bad joke! X-trans is a complete failure when it comes to detail reproduction. It can't handle greenery, foliage or anything else with lots of fine detail without making a mess of everything. Just look at all x-trans discussions going on at the Fuji forum.

"It can't handle greenery, foliage or anything else with lots of fine detail without making a mess of everything. "
If it is so why fujifilm stay with it and why X-A2 is the cheapest in the lineup?
what u said maybe true but don't seem to make sense. Why Fujifilm user all buy X-A2?
if not for detail, m aybe X-trans has ;ower noise in high ISO?

In reply to:

Thorgrem: People who want to start with photography are likely to come to this site to get some information. So they see this test and go for the A5100. Unfortunately they are mislead by DPR. And make on the basis of this comparison an bad decision because this camera is bundled with the most crappy kitlens one can get.

This is what PhotoZone has to say:
The Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS broke a couple of records but unfortunately not in the positive sense. http://www.photozone.de/sony_nex/842-sony1650f3556oss?start=2

16-50mm from Sony is widely regarded as inferior even for a kit lens, there is no point argue about that
On the other hand, Panasonic 12-32mm have great word of mouth among photographers

Probably the best kit lens of all cameras in the bunch, this combine with good video,good AF make GF7 the best.

This is the one I would recommend to others if they are not going to buy another lens.

On article 2015 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500 (272 comments in total)

I disagree with the conclusion
Because of the quality of the kit lens (which Sony A5100 is junk) ,good AF, good video
The best of the bunch is Panasonic GF7

Direct link | Posted on Nov 4, 2015 at 20:27 UTC as 17th comment

Fuji make a 10mm F2 lens please
I would also take a 14mm F2
