This is what LX camera should beLX camera should always be a pocket cameraThat 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 excitedthis 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 farsurprising it takes so long for the 1 inch sensor to be put in a super zoom10X zoom much more useful than other large aperture 1 inch sensor camera
Price is high but it probably would fall to $500 eventuallyI will buy, good product
can u get the same result by pushing RAWi mean brighten up shadow and darken hightligh
I guess not as good as real HDR like this app
the first pic ,A great American traditionis very bad even for small sensor,no detail at allwhy? F8 diffraction?
Frank C.: 35mm...too wide for portraitstoo narrow for landscapesthe no man's land of focal lengthswhat is there to like??
I agree with Frank C.35mm is useless28mm at least,24mm betteru 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 ISOsame sensor as X-A2
It works, I use many yearsHighly recommend
people should not dismiss it without using iti am an early user of the program, it works
it has many uses, like sending image to friendsmy 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
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.
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 disappearXZ 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?
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?
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 thatOn 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.
I disagree with the conclusionBecause of the quality of the kit lens (which Sony A5100 is junk) ,good AF, good videoThe best of the bunch is Panasonic GF7
Fuji make a 10mm F2 lens pleaseI would also take a 14mm F2
look at it with the 24-90mm lensbetter not take this to the battle field, would got killedlook like some kind of weapon
who would really use something like this to take picture is beyond memaybe just buy as a collector item
look at that huge size,847 gram without a lensif not using a tripod, just hand holding , all fun of photography is lost
APS-C is the real successor of old 35mm film camera not these full frame
Too little too lateGet the Samsung NX500 would be smarter
