On Hands-on with Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 article (111 comments in total)
In reply to:

MrZuma: This hands on gives no new information and no image samples or talk of image quality. What the hell Dpreview?

To be fair to DPR staff, this article IS showing a LOT of HANDS... ON the camera.

:P

In reply to:

Biro: I really want to love the LX100. I really do. I'm totally fine with the styling, size, sensor, lens and control interface. What's more, I have the cash in hand and can actually afford it.

But the lack of an integrated flash drives me crazy. The whole idea of the LX100, at least for me, is the have a reasonably sized, grab-and-go all-rounder for daily use. By definition, I don't want to bring along extra bits - whether lenses or flashes.

I'm only asking for something good enough for fill and reasonably close snapshots. It doesn't even have to be a pop-up (although being able to tilt back a pop-up unit for bounce purposes would be nice). Something akin to the flashes on Panasonic travel-zooms would be fine.

I'm not saying that I won't buy the LX100. But while the camera would have been an immediate pre-order with an integrated flash, I am now waiting to find out more about it. And I am seriously considering the Fuji X100T, Sony RX100 III and even the Canon G7X while I wait.

@papa natas - The resolution is as good as it gets. The LCD has a 4:3 ratio with 640x480 resolution (0.92m dots) while those with 1.03 dots have a 3:2 ratio with a 720x480 resolution.

Since it's a m4/3 camera, it just makes sense that the LCD is on a 4:3 ratio.

Well, you can always wait 12-18 months until a LX200 comes around, probably with in-built flash.

If Sony could put a flash inside the Nex'es (wich are, basically, the same size as the LX100), I don't see why Panny couldn't do it as well.

I really don't get some omissions made by camera manufacturers...

neo_nights: "Hours of fun can be had, turning the camera on, and seeing the lens peep out, then off again, then on again... "

Then we make some blonde jokes and people get offended without knowing why...

In all seriousness, I'd like to know how much bigger/smaller/thicker it is compared to NEX6 with the 16-50mm PZ attached.

Thanks, Nick!

Basically the same size as the Nex, then.

Of course you get a (most likely) better and faster lens.

It's almost like having digital and analog in the same camera.

That's interesting.

On Photokina 2014: Ricoh stand report article (121 comments in total)
In reply to:

mosc: Uh, I guess this wasn't a popular read but I have a small typo correction on slide 10. The Q-S1 doesn't use a 5.6x crop factor (1/2.33" sensor Q10 did) it uses a 1/1.7" sensor which has a massively smaller crop factor of a scant 4.7x

Yes, I know, nobody cares. Something is wrong in the internet and I should ignore it.

That mistake was done on purpose.

Remember that DPReview HATES Pentax and they do everything they can to make Pentax look bad.

*tongue in cheek*
;P

"And yes, we'll bring a polarizing filter next time."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

That proves that DPR's staff read *EVERY*thing people say on the comments section.

And no snarky remarks about Allison enjoying the orange pentax?

On Relonch brings APS-C image sensor to the iPhone post (35 comments in total)
In reply to:

neo_nights: What's the point of having an APS-C sensor for a measly 1mp image?! It can't be because of the "bokeh" for two reasons:
1) If the lens is going to be an wide-angle, than the DOF will be large anyway;
2) There are plenty of apps that simulate bokeh rather well (considering small image sizes).

And that "working prototype" with a Nex taped to a phone is just laughable :)

Hhmmm.... I see.

Still, for "BOKEH [tm]" at 1mp, a software could do it.
It's not that the majority of Instagram users would notice anyway. It'd be more for bragging rights, at most.

In reply to:

Peter Del: That's dpreview's report of the Olympus stand! No piercing questions asked, just a few pictures!!
Come on dpreview, surely you can do better than that.

If you weren't so quick to judge you'd see that all those Stand Reports are just a quick summary of what's there to see.

All the interviews and more in-depth stuff will come later on a separate News.

I'd never have thought of THAT. Thanks for your explanation.

artwine: Lesson 1 - which should be obvious by now - is that if you post anything on the Internet, anywhere, then it's now in the public domain. You have relinguished your rights to it, in essence. If you don't like it, don't post! There's a price to pay for "advertising".

@ Scottelly - Your analogy is the same as making available the original RAW or full size original JPEG. In other words, you are being a lot more imprudent.

My analogy is more related to people who put a smaller-sized image and people still steal the picture and treat as their own (or worse yet, try to print and sell to make money out of it).

On either cases, though, it's theft and it's WRONG.

Just because it's easier or more tempting, doesn't mean you CAN do it. Just because "it's what people do" and blah blah blah, it doesn't make stealing a right thing to do. That's some common sense, really.

So, if you park your car on a PUBLIC street anyone may feel welcome to come and steal it? Because, you know, it's a public place...

And if you don't want your car to be stolen then you shouldn't take it out from home?

Ok!

After spending all the money on a Leica, no doubt one will need to use cheap DIY stuff to recover from the $damage$ :p
