On article Nikon AW1 First Impressions Review (591 comments in total)

anyone notice even with the 10 mm lens weight 470 gram twice as heavy as TG-2. with zoom weight 530 gram also the terrible 220 shot battery life. can't be put in shirt pocket

The $370 230 gram tiny TG-2 is not obslete at all

Jefftan: How is DXO lens correction compare to Lightroom?
DXO always stress that its lens correction base on testing many lens is unique

but isn't Adobe also got lens correction?
What's the difference?

I try it on my NEX-5N RAW but color is not as natural as out of camera JPEG
do you have color profile for different camera?

Dpreview is not helping people by not emphasizing the slow lens of all these camera except TG-2 and WG-3

Giving similar score to these slow lens camera as TG-2,WG-3 is really not doing any good to the photographic community

They should get a much lower score to let everyone know that these are outdated and obsolete

Can BSI actually worsen low ISO IQ?
I think that is possible
I would got a GR or Coolpix A and left the zoom to my TG-2 which is less than 10% of my pic

jaygeephoto: Taken with my WG-3 last month:

Is lack of an aperture mode as in TG-2 a problem?
the image in your sample has F9.5 which would suffer from diffraction
or maybe not because it is probably using an ND filter

JohnEwing: Small, toughened cameras such as this are not as good for diving as pure UW jobs or DSLRs in housings, but they're great for sports where you might be getting sweaty, caught in downpours or knocked about, where getting the image counts for more than pixel-peeping.

The trouble from the manufacturer's point of view is that, for this purpose, 2- or 4-year-old models are just as good as the latest offerings. On a 1200 km Audax, such tomfoolery as WiFi and glacially slow GPS is useless.

Get a used or new old-stock Panny TS3/FT3 or even an TS1/FT1 and you'll not be missing out by much in comparison.

you are probably right
My Panasonic TS1 is still working and believe it or not, at base ISO it may be better than all current waterproof camera because it has a CCD sensor not CMOS

If people understood CCD got fantastic color at base ISO

jaygeephoto: Buy a Pentax WG-3 in black, with or without GPS. It's a great value and doesn't look like a tub toy. You can use it as a general purpose point and shoot and not look foolish. The image quality is outstanding too for a camera of this type.

Do you own it?
astonishing compare to what?
got TG-2 and curious about WG-3

why not TG-2?

Jefftan: Only TG-2 and WG-3 with F2 lens is worth buying

Anyone buying this camera not prepare to use it indoor? if so would you want ISO 200/400 or ISO 800/1600

So simple. This slow lens waterproof are obsolete and why they still exist is many buying public don't understand lens aperture

I have TG-2 and is definitely much better than my Galaxy smartphone. The only thing I don't know is if WG-3 is better than my TG-2. It seems there is less NR in WG-3 and more detail left but this is only evident at 100%

For normal viewing on screen image is very attractive. In good lighting I can mistaken them to be take by my NEX-5N

If they further improve it to F1.4 than can use up to ISO 400 in low light than it would be perfect

Now still have to use ISO 800 in many scenario and as you know not very good

ISO 400 is the highest tolerable ISO for small sensor

Jefftan: "The big unknown right now is image quality - the 70D uses a 20.2MP sensor but the image is formed from 40.3M photodiodes, which is a lot to fit onto an APS-C chip."

not just noise, what about diffraction

http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/diffraction-photography-2.htm

diffraction start at F5.7

stupid idea from Canon
