A very sad loss to photography enthusiasts everywhere.

On article Panasonic's Post Focus feature arrives November 25 (218 comments in total)

This could be used to create a simulated narrow depth of field... Finally demolishing one of the last FF features without having to carry heavy, expensive and bulky fast lenses.

Well done, keep going Panasonic!

On article Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II added to studio test scene (209 comments in total)

I love the pop up EVF, tilting lcd and more powerful processor (faster focusing algorithms) - but I think it could be a mistake not to upgrade the lens to match the new sensor + focus processing.

Richard, do you agree that the lens is now the limiting factor for focusing speed (slow focusing motors) and IQ (is the sensor out-resolving the lens?)

Thanks

otto k: Thank you for taking time to check with them as you are big enough that they might actually reply, but this supposed email used *exactly the same text* as did this regarding laptops a year ago:
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/laptop/samsung-exits-laptop-market-including-chromebooks-3573470/
"We quickly adapt to market needs and demands. In Europe, we will be discontinuing sales of laptops including Chromebooks for now. This is specific to the region – and is not necessarily reflective of conditions in other markets," said a Samsung spokesperson.

Also, "our product is not good enough" was said by no company, ever.

Also, the source was not Andrew but someone else on forum who in the mean time received clarification that they are actually making new model so they are pulling old one (?) and now he's waiting for additional classification.

Head, meet hurt.

Jeff, better tell whoever posted this piece for dpreview... Not good imho

In reply to:

(unknown member): I would suggest that DPR would never have helped fuel speculation by printing this rumour unless they actually do know something.

The wording is obviously wrong - it looks like it was written by a snide competitor.

Seriously disappointed in dpreview 'phishing' filters... come on guys, if it looks fishy do not spread it.

I'm no Samsung lover, but would they be in a position to take legal action against dpreview for slander? This must surely have negative implications for their business.

Brian Mosley: Congratulations to the dpreview team for finally getting Sony to listen to the need for uncompressed RAW... any chance we can get support for an update to the RX100 m4 in this regard?

Thanks

PhotoAcute is far more powerful than the inbuilt multishot hdr mode. It does super resolution and automatically deals with movement between shots... Particularly effective for moving tree branches and grass.

For someone who couldn't care less, you have an awful lot to say.

As a keen RX100 m4 user, I do care about the camera giving the best image quality possible. If that means Sony adding a configurable option to disable lossy compression, I hope they will do it for us.

Kind regards

Brian

Why would Sony fixing this issue for the RX100 m4 cause you grief?

Well, Sony didn't agree with you both... thankfully, at least for the A7RII - let's hope they finish the job for the RX100 m4.

I'm not sure why you're arguing for Sony to do nothing for RX100 m4 owners. Are they less worthy than A7RII owners?

OK, so you agree there's a problem with RX100 compressed raw files, which you can reproduce for yourself.

Thanks.

So you've read everything dpr has to say about Sony's lossy raw compression method, and seen carefully presented evidence of the negative impact this can have on images, and you insist this is not enough for *you* and that you want to see specific examples of *my* shots which have been "ruined" - your words not mine. I'm quite happy to present similar evidence of raw compression artifacts for the RX100 m4 in the Sony forum, but unless you work for Sony, I don't see why your opinion has any bearing on my desire for clean raw files.

nandbytes, follow the link by Rishi 3 responses up in this thread for a very clear explanation with examples of this issue.

I wouldn't take the time to repeat what dpreview have already done - unless Sony need the assurance that their flagship compact suffers from the same problem.

ET2, Google PhotoAcute for details of super resolution. The RX100 m4 is the most capable camera I'm aware of for producing files suitable for this technique.

16fps, electronic shutter, decent 20MP sensor and powerful hdr/burst mode controls plus excellent exposure live view display.

The only minor downside is the occasional artifacts caused by lossy raw compression.

Thank you Rishi, are you able to raise this with the Sony representative? I'm extremely impressed with the RX100 m4, and think it deserves to be taken very seriously as a high quality image maker.

Bringing the uncompressed RAW option to it would go a long way to improving the Sony brand with serious enthusiasts.

Thanks

Brian

The difference can be quite noticeable, especially with the RX100 m4 when used for super - resolution.

watson076: I have given up on mirrorless and returned back to an SLR after several years bouncing around from Olympus, Sony, and Fuji. While the cameras have a lot to offer, handling is really my main issue: they are just uncomfortable and don't balance well with anything but compact primes. i don't know how to solve that issue with creating a bigger camera body.

Get a grip!
