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.

is TG-1 NR a problem?

pretty much give up hope that a truly revolutionary waterproof camera will appear in 2013
well maybe next year

but I have been saying this for the past 4 years

"a 16 MP image downsized to 12 MP by PC-level software, will have less noise, more DR, and more resolution than a direct 12 MP capture."

I agree with you on that but because with F2 lens diffraction is less of a problem. If only F3.9 lens than diffraction on 16MP is a big problem

Without any good review to say otherwise, to me still safer to go with TG-2 because TG-1 has a good reputation and also 2nd generation

WG-3 is first generation product, F2 lens and optical image stabilization all first time done. More experimental to me

Jefftan: Fuji is trying to sell to public who don't know the difference between F2 and F3.9
Believe it or not there are lots of them, my girlfriend being one
We dpreview forum people are different (feel special or what?)

I have explain to her F2 mean she can use 2 level (not 2 stop too complicated) lower ISO and the lower ISO the better
but if she don't know me, she will never know what is F2

This is the problem, ignorant public
only solution is for people like us who know camera try to educate as many as possible

Basically one really have only 2 choices now
TG-2 or WG-3
My pick is TG-2

but some said WG-3 for the supposedly lower NR
to me just have more confidence with Olympus sensor (likely Sony) and lens (maker of Zuiko lens) than pentax

In the last generation TG-1 seem to be better than WG-2 (some said otherwise again because of supposedly heavy NR in TG-1)

WG-3 may surprise everyone and be better than TG-2 but I have to buy pretty soon and can't wait for detail review

So my pick now is TG-2

even if it is the same lens, 12MP still better than 16MP
Also to me I trust Olympus more than Pentax
Look at the current state of Pentax compare with Olympus Pan camera
you know what I mean
Also unless WG-3 is different than WG-2, last year TG-1 is better than WG-2 I believe

In reply to:

peevee1: f/3.9? Fail.
Still Oly and Pentax only.

2 stop not 1.5 stop

Direct link | Posted on Mar 22, 2013 at 15:43 UTC

also heavy at 232 gram same as TG-2 which has F2 lens
CIPA 300 compare with TG-2 360
compare this to TX30 whcih is 140gram with battery

no matter what angle you look at it still junk

Direct link | Posted on Mar 22, 2013 at 13:58 UTC as 33rd comment

Just found out this junk cost $300
Fuji is crazy, this should cost at most $200

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 money
this piece of junk is a joke
sorry for being honest

what is the difference between this SX280HS and SX260HS?
same sensor same lens, same to me

missed opportunity
if this is waterproof it will sell like hot cake

why should anyone buy this
too much money to throw away?

On Nikon Europe releases Coolpix S3500 compact camera article (3 comments in total)

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 point
I wish those are still available
12MP CCD sensor 3X zoom F2.8
Why are they extinct? Am I asking too much?

On Sony announces SLT-A58 20MP mid-level DSLR-style camera article (128 comments in total)
In reply to:

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 above
nowhere mention the 1-stop better noise performance

This is the big deal !
This is suppose to be the true next generation Sony APS-C sensor
I assume it will also go into the next NEX 5 and 6 series

1 stop noise improvement is huge if confirm
But can this really be true? If so APS-C would equal full frame at least in noise performance
sounds too good to be true but really exciting news

Direct link | Posted on Feb 20, 2013 at 05:36 UTC as 44th comment

210 gram is indeed quite amazing for a APS-C sensor camera with integrated flash

In reply to:

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"
