Jogger: Rumour is that the D4x will be 54mp (basically a 24mp APSc sensor scaled up to FF). Pair that with Otus lenses, and there really isnt a need for MF anymore.

Telling MF users that a "35mm FF is enough" is the same thing to tell those FF users that "APS-C is enough".

Bigger sensor is always better (as long as you keep the same level of technology and improvement on the sensors, of course).

Cane: A lot of things seem 'difficult to say'.

'difficult to say' and 'we will analyse what our customers want'.

Nothing to see here.

MAubrey: You know...traditionally in headline writing, if there's a question the answer is invariably know. So the question is: are you communicating the right thing or the wrong thing?

Someone must write an Article/Tutorial "How to DPR".

Considering how much people seem to care about the hands on the "hands on" reviews, soon DPR will be employing Hands Models....

(and then, of course, people would say "hire better models", "your models s*ck" and so on. Because people just complain for the sake of it. I guess)

On Hands-on with Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 article (433 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jacques Cornell: I wonder why Panasonic didn't use the same 20MP 1" sensor as the FZ1000, given that it seems comparable in high-iso noise and superior in resolution. It would have allowed a smaller camera and/or faster lens. The LX100 seems like a great camera, but it doesn't provide a pocketable option for current MFT owners. Waiting for an LF2 with a better lens.

It would've been a 'me too' RX100 camera.

I like Panny's idea of taking the idea a step further.

And, c'mon, it's a f**king Leica 3x zoom lens with a F1.7-F2.8 aperture. What more could someone want?

Of course we will have to wait for the tests, but that lens alone may be worth the camera, even if not as pocketable as some people would like.

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.

I still don't think size is a good excuse for the lack of a flash. Again, just look at Sony Nex 6; it's virtually the same size of the LX100 (perhaps 1mm bigger).
And it's got a bigger sensor an even a tilting screen.

First Nexes also didn't have in-built flash but, somehow, "miraculously" Sony managed to do it on the very next generation. While maintaning the size of their cameras.

I bet the LX200 (or whatever Panasonic will call it) will have a in-built flash.

They should do away with the EV dial and use that space for a flash. I don't get the point of a dedicated EV dial, specially if you are a Manual shooter and can see the changes of the exposure real-time with the EVF.
If the exposure don't look right for you, just adjust the settings. Don't need to use a dial to tell your meter what the exposure should be like...

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.

@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 (151 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*

"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 (41 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.

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.
