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?

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

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"

to site editor

there is an error
both HX300 and TX30 specification list CCD sensor
that is most likely incorrect

Direct link | Posted on Feb 20, 2013 at 04:25 UTC as 21st comment

Can someone tell me what is the difference between TX30 and TX20
they are basically the same and TX20 is also the same as TX10
Oh wait it now has 18MP
is it actually getting worse?

Direct link | Posted on Feb 20, 2013 at 04:22 UTC as 22nd comment | 1 reply

at least 16MP is better than 20 MP
CCD sensor also better than CMOS
But I bet the lens is no good, if it is a decent lens it may be OK

On Nikon D5200 added to our studio comparison database article (186 comments in total)

The problem is not 24MP sensor
the problem what lens you need to use in order to get that 14 MP
with kit lens you won't even get 16 MP let alone 24

if not going to purchase top quality glass just kidding yourself
What you really get is bad high ISO performance

NEX system most needed lens is a premium standard zoom below $1000 to replace the kit lens
why there is none in 3 years is not acceptable to serious photographer
now NEX is only for the public

Direct link | Posted on Jan 23, 2013 at 12:50 UTC as 30th comment

biggest problem is no OSS
no use at high ISO at night

Direct link | Posted on Jan 23, 2013 at 12:22 UTC as 36th comment | 6 replies

with no OSS this lens is good only for daylight and for someone want a small camera
price is definitely too high
worth at most $200 to me

Direct link | Posted on Jan 23, 2013 at 11:36 UTC as 40th comment | 3 replies

with no OSS you automatically lose at least 2 stop at low light high ISO situation
this is like a F5.6 lens at high ISO compare to a lens with OSS

Why no one seem to talk about the new feature in TG-2
A mode which allow you to pick aperture
This is the biggest improvement over TG-1 in my opinion when camera may pick a small number aperture and run into diffraction

Direct link | Posted on Jan 10, 2013 at 05:46 UTC as 11th comment | 1 reply

I think the most important feature is now A mode is available. Only P mode is available in TG-1

In reply to:

peevee1: So the only changed spec is 15m/50ft vs 12m/40ft before? And the better colors.
Why would they update anything when there are absolutely no formidable competition for the TG-1?

also this is new
The new Microscopic Macro function boosts zoom magnification from 4x to 14x** with no noticeable loss of image quality from one centimeter away for true macro results. When the doubly powerful Super Resolution zoom is used, aspects of the natural world usually invisible to the naked eye, such as veins on a leaf and the details of an insect's eye, are revealed.

Pentax Q review indicate
" the Pentax Q uses a smaller sensor with more pixels than the Canon G12 and Nikon P7100, for example, diffraction limiting sets in at above f/2.8"
now with A mode can keep aperture below F2.8

Direct link | Posted on Jan 8, 2013 at 15:53 UTC as 23rd comment

There is an A mode on mode dial
To be able to control aperture is very important
not sure if there is A mode in TG-1
anyway no RAW is disappointing
