Great article could you please review other raw converters and photographic software in a similar way

On Best Camera of 2012: And the Winner is... article (1412 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ray Sachs: I either own or have owned four of the listed cameras and shot a fair amount with a couple of others. I've been a mirrorless user for a couple of years (including m43 but not limited to it) and this is the first m43 camera that I'd have voted for as camera of the year. It's the first one that convinced large numbers of DSLR users to convert to mirrorless, including a few of my friends who wouldn't have considered it before. It's not as absolutely top-end capable as the highest end DSLRs, but considering all of the trade offs, the innovations in this camera, and how close it finally comes to the best available image quality, I think it's a good choice and represents something of a tipping point for mirrorless in general.

I agree I think we will look back on the OMD as the tipping point in mirrorless acceptance. I think we will be in for exciting times in the next few years as mirrorless improves further and starts replacing pro DSLRs. The first full frame mirrorless that is affordable and has good autofocus will be a game changer like the OMD has been this year.

where is the Fuji xpro 1 support apple? some one is asleep at the wheel

I've not been able to use this camera yet but the images people are producing are stunning. This grip looks like it addresses the concerns people have about holding this camera.

This looks like a fantastic camera. I can't wait to try one. To all the trolls below it is FULL FRAME! There is nothing like this on the market at this cheap price point

nicolaiecostel: I know I will sound like a bit of an ignorant, but how is Leica still going ? I know that for a company to survive, it must have big sale values, albeit at high prices. I mean, Pentax sells loads more than Leica but it still went bust a few times. Who buys these overpriced allmost-one-offs, in such large quantities so that a company cand afford to pay the personell, invest in R&D and so on ?

Less is more!

D1N0: specs look a little better than the d600 to me 1/8000 more bracketing and wifi and gps.

The canon website says it is only 1/4000 of a second :( max shutter speed.

In reply to:

DStudio: It will be interesting to see how well this price tag works - this was about the max I figured they'd go. After seeing Sony's price for the A99, and thinking about the realities of the value of the dollar to the yen, I realized there was no way they'd be down near the $1500 price some had hoped for. The higher prices in US$ we're seeing for many cameras and lenses are not merely fickle decisions by Japanese camera makers - unfortunately, they reflect the realities of a devalued dollar and an economy that's worse than many Americans want to admit.

But back to the photographic side, it's great to see Nikon make full frame now accessible to a larger audience - it will be interesting to see how the competition prices similar products during the next year.

Imagine what the price would have been in $US at the exchange rate of 5 years ago. The only upside is maybe Nikon will open a factory in the US. Low dollar, large recovering(ish?) economy, should help get prices down for the US market at least.

slncezgsi: I have just read the short review of DP2 Merril from Steve Huff - really pity that the performance (apart from IQ) so bad is. The IQ is really amazing (just keep it under ISO 800). But yes - even for the IQ itself the camera is tempting.

I have a feeling sigma lacks the resources to fully exploit the foveon sensor technology. That is they don't have the cash to design the other technology to make the dp series better all round cameras

In reply to:

mosc: Is anybody else struck by the similarities in light gathering between the RX-100's f4.9 equivalent and the DP1m's f4.2 at 28mm? Except one is physically much smaller, zooms, costs less, etc. I doubt the sensor is better in the Sigma at ISO 1600+ either. Doubt we'll see a multi-shot-and-merged low light mode. In low light, it's out done by a cheaper ZOOM!

Sigmas dp series cameras are specialised cameras which are not designed to be good all round cameras. Clearly an Sony RX100 is a much better all round camera. The sigma is best bought as an extra camera to use along side your other kit and shoot with it in the right conditions

topstuff: 40mm is a lovely length on FF.

Pop that puppy on a 5D series camera ( classic, 2 or 3) and you would have a relatively compact camera with amazing IQ.

Nice to see Canon copying Pentax !!

Cool another film eos user I can't wait to use it on my Élan 7NE and my eos IX APS film SLR!

wlachan: 600EX + ST-E3-RT for $1100? Is Canon insane?

The pound and the euro have also crashed against the yen and other currencies. Some countries in Europe are effectively bankrupt but are (quite rightly) being propped up to prevent them from dragging the rest of Europe down with them. The Uk has made many positive steps to get out of the mess they are in but they are still in real trouble. No one wants to buy pounds or euros hence the currencies has lost up to 50% of their value compared to some currencies. A low pound, euro and US dollar will help the respective countries recover by discouraging people from buying luxury imports like cameras and buy locally made products. Hence if the low dollar and pound continue you might find companies setting up again to make cameras and cars in the US and UK etc because in terms of the Yen it is cheaper.

Please no more complaints about pricing. Expensive Japanese camera gear is the price you are paying for the economic mess your respective countries are in.
