peevee1: f/3.9? Fail.Still Oly and Pentax only.
2 stop not 1.5 stop
also heavy at 232 gram same as TG-2 which has F2 lensCIPA 300 compare with TG-2 360compare this to TX30 whcih is 140gram with battery
no matter what angle you look at it still junk
Just found out this junk cost $300Fuji is crazy, this should cost at most $200
peevee1: The lens is too dark to use indoors, in your hotel room, in a restaurant, in an evening concert... 3 fps only also preclude the use of it for any kind of action shots. And no GPS. And $300 is not even that cheap.
Seriously, do yourself a favor and buy Olympus TG-1, Olympus TG-2 or Pentax WG-3 GPS instead. Don't encourage the companies who make inferior products.
my pick is TG-2 will buy in the next few days putting money to support good company as you suggest
as to WG-3 although not out yet, base on past experience I don't believe the lens quality can match Olympus
If they put the same attitude and effort in creating X100s and XE1 into waterproof camera
they would be the first to get my moneythis piece of junk is a jokesorry for being honest
what is the difference between this SX280HS and SX260HS?same sensor same lens, same to me
missed opportunityif this is waterproof it will sell like hot cake
why not buy NEX-3N for $500how much bigger and with 3 times zoom
how much smaller compare with NEX-3N which is $500why should anyone buy thistoo much money to throw away?
with new NEX-3N only $500 on the high end and smartphone at the low end IQ wise, there is no reason why all these point and shoot 20MP garbage should exist in this world
They deserve to die. the 1/2.3 point and shoot reach its highest point in 2009 and all downhill from that pointI wish those are still available12MP CCD sensor 3X zoom F2.8Why are they extinct? Am I asking too much?
Benarm: The most interesting thing about A58 is the supposedly improved sensor with 1-stop better noise performance over its predecessor. Can't wait to see DXOMark results.
I read the abovenowhere mention the 1-stop better noise performance
This is the big deal !This is suppose to be the true next generation Sony APS-C sensorI assume it will also go into the next NEX 5 and 6 series
1 stop noise improvement is huge if confirmBut can this really be true? If so APS-C would equal full frame at least in noise performancesounds too good to be true but really exciting news
210 gram is indeed quite amazing for a APS-C sensor camera with integrated flash
Nectar D Or: Just counted 9 (!!) NEX bodies announced by Sony in about 2.5 years.
How can anyone keep track? Is there really a difference between those cameras?
I find it hard to take the guys at Sony seriously. Either there is something really wrong with those bodies that need to be replaced every 6 months, or this is just the marketing people ordering the engineers around.
this may be the reason"Weighing approximately 210g, the NEX-3N is the world's smallest, lightest interchangeable-lens camera with a large APS-C sized sensor"
to site editor
there is an errorboth HX300 and TX30 specification list CCD sensorthat is most likely incorrect
Can someone tell me what is the difference between TX30 and TX20they are basically the same and TX20 is also the same as TX10Oh wait it now has 18MPis it actually getting worse?
at least 16MP is better than 20 MPCCD sensor also better than CMOSBut I bet the lens is no good, if it is a decent lens it may be OK
The problem is not 24MP sensorthe problem what lens you need to use in order to get that 14 MPwith kit lens you won't even get 16 MP let alone 24
if not going to purchase top quality glass just kidding yourselfWhat you really get is bad high ISO performance
NEX system most needed lens is a premium standard zoom below $1000 to replace the kit lenswhy there is none in 3 years is not acceptable to serious photographernow NEX is only for the public
biggest problem is no OSSno use at high ISO at night
