Robert Anderson: Some more real world samples from the D20
http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/9208018736/albums/d20

your D20 samples IQ are very good
better than I expect at ISO 100 and F3.9

by the way with no Aperture mode is the auto smart enough to always use F3.9 to avoid diffraction?

A large sensor waterproof, at least 1 inch
I have wait many many years still just a dream

jefflins: Want to hear a decent model: Adobe could go to a cloud model. They could charge an amount equal to essentially "forcing" everybody to upgrade every 18 months. Price: $10 a month. Prepay a year, $99. Give existing owners a free period of subsription based on their version: CS6=free 18 months, CS5=free 6 months. Nothing for CS4 and earlier.

Would such a model attract 2 times as many users? (or slightly more due to bandwidth, storage customer svc costs which eat into the costs). I don't know.

Oh well, not going to happen. So here's my idea: convert my raw files to TIFF, JPG or DNG in Lightroom and use CS5 for the next 5-10 years, by which time a suitable competitor will arise...likely in the freeware space.

there will be no lens correction for any new lens

peevee1: There is no even point to compare anything but TG-2 and WG-3 now. Get out of the bright sun and it crystal clear why - others cannot even do what a phone can do.

I agree
The benefit of F2 lens is at low light and indoor which is important
I choose TG-2
If only for outdoor F2 lensis not needed than hard to say which is best. D20 better than TG-2? don't know

ci-lee: How timely indeed! I'm in the market for an all-weather cam to complement the X20 & XP1. Hope your upcoming reviews (and subsequent comparison) include the Oly TG2, Pentax WG3 and Fuji XP200 (I assume the AW110 and TF5 will be incl. as well). I know on paper the Fuji is prob the dog of the underwater group but the specs seem surprisingly similar to the Nikon AW110 which has gotten good reviews on other sites. Plus it boasts WiFi which makes up for the lack of built-in GPS, has some versatile video capture rates and similar 'creative' modes as the other Fuji cameras. More importantly for me tho is the use of the same NP50 battery as the X20, of which I already have three spares :)

Anyway, keep up the great work and please hurry with these reviews, I'll be on two trips in August where neither X-cam will like the environment too much ;)

P.S. I agree with the previous poster who mentioned the lack of shutter/aperture priority for these "sports" cams...makes the TG2 quite appealing

I think TG-2 is the best of the bunch

CarVac: I want a small 28mm equiv for aps-c dslrs.

Not some huge semi-fast prime (77mm filter threads!).

Not some huger, faster (!) zoom.

I'll even take f/4 if it's small.

Either way, more options are better.

easy just buy Coolpix A or Ricoh GR

TJGKG: After all this, the Sony RX-100 still scores higher! Whilst both got a silver award, the Sony got a 78 and the Nikon a 75. Interesting. From the review I would guess the GR is going to score even lower.

I don't even know how they come up with the score
funny how serious people treat these score

2013 is a milestone in camera history
these 2 camera is probably better than even DSLR with good lens
because the lens is designed from the ground up to match the sensor

smallest and best IQ APS-C camera, few understand the significance of this development

In reply to:

Justin Francis: The Sony RX100 blows this Nikon away. The Sony has a zoom, the wide end is faster, the DOF is pretty much the same for both cameras which negates the Nikon's larger sensor. For normal use, Sony's IQ matches the Nikon's except upwards of ISO1600. On top of that the Sony is more pocketable. What's the rationale for the Nikon?

Comparing apple to orange
APS-C sensor can't be compare to 1 inch

Jefftan: still confusing as ever
as a jpeg shooter out of camera color is very important to me
I know these 2 cameras color are different and everyone may have different opinion which one has better color

I hope there are more shooting of the same scene from both camera
this review only has a total of 12 (6 from each camera) I can compare

"why don't you look at the sample yourself and tell us which camera colors you like better"
They are not shooting the same scene so not directly comparable

"Most cameras today are more than capable to make most people happy"
If you are talking about detail I agree but it is not that simple. I will give you an example I have an E-PL1 an NEX-5N. I don't shoot RAW so only use out of camera jpeg

The white balance of E-PL1 is very unreliable in any artificial lighting and someimes even daylight, produce odd color and it is a pain to correct them with jpeg (almost impossible to me)
I also much prefer the color of NEX there is no way you can change the color of E-PL1 jpeg to NEX color

So not as simple as you said. The white balance and color of a camera is different for different cameras so not all cameras today are OK to everyone

Of course one can shoot RAW but that is an added cost and added trouble that not all (including me) will do. Even in RAW I bet different camera has different color and also white balance is determine by camera settings if done in batch mode

Jefftan: Hi, R Butler
May I ask if Active D-Lighting is available in RAW?
You have mention "For JPEG shooters in particular, this is a really nice feature to have"

So it is not available in RAW?
Thanks.

Thanks R Butler and greggyh for the info

for jpeg shooter like me, the "Active D-Lighting" alone should make the decision for me
Coolpix A is probably better
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikon-coolpix-a/9

I suppose GR pics would look like Active D-Lighting off

In reply to:

Joe Ogiba: I wonder if Sony will come out with the rumored RX10 APS-C fixed lens version between the 1" RX100 and full frame RX1.

No way
If that RX10 did come, the lens would be much better
even the recent SEL 20 F2.8 is just an average lens
