A DSLR-like superzoom with a 1/2.33" sensor.'nuff said.
Now how can that be???
I used to think gawd makes no mistakes.
Quote: "We will be adding more samples in the coming days. "That was on July 1st.
More sample images please, as promised.Or ask Robin Wong for some.
This thread presently isn't up to dpreview standards.
For me, the specs read ok.The major remaining question is the quality of the lens.For 500+X bucks it had better be very, very good.
BTW, what makes P6270021 so "perfect" that it made the cut?The fact that it is sharp nowhere?
Still ISO 1000 and ISO 1600 pics in the gallery.What for?Come on,. dpreview, you can do it much better.
What is the point of making sample pictures for a f1.8 lens with ISO 8000 ?????
To me, this is utter nonsense. A significant part of the images is completely useless for assessing the quality of the lens.
I do not get it.How can NIKON, for sure a company capable of making excellent cameras, produce such a piece of crap?How can this rip-off (scheme: if it is NIKON, it must be good) still work, and get a 69% rating, whilst it should get a loud BOOOO ?
To me this lens smells very strongly like a precursor to a soon to be announced mirrorless system.m43 is going to have serious competition.This is good news.
Trollshavethebestcandy: First!I think the Oly 12mm might be better and cheaper.
Let us hope so. Every decent lens offering is positive for the m43 system.
Being an amateur I cannot afford to buy into a system end costing me a 5 digit number. So I see reviews of these high end DSLRs in a very relaxed way. I was impressed by what a Nikon D800 can do, and I am equally impressed by this Canon. Technically, these tools are phantastic. The difference between 82% and 100% are minor quibbles.
But: Last sunday I was on a celebration (60 yrs married). Some guests shot some photographs with BIG cameras. I a lot with my unobtrusive little one. Guess who will be applauded for a nice album showing naturally looking, merry people.
Measuring changes the object measured, if you know what I mean.
When you pick up your girl for a date, do you appear with nice sports car or with a tank?
FF is sure important for professionals. For me as a poor amateur it is more a source of ideas what would be technically posible even without a large sensor. I am looking forward to more and more of these things being implemented in consumer price level cameras.
mhike: Casio's compacts have traditionally been quite underrated and high on performance compared to many others. I just wished they'd stop stuffing MP on tiny sensors, just like everyone else.
Perhaps return to using larger sensors, like they did in the past.
Casio once built the Exilim Z850, still one of the best compacts P&S. It had a bigger sensor than the 1/2,3 of today. Unfortunately, the electronic and mechanical build quality have not been so very superb, so most used cameras on the market are defective.
As far as IQ and in particular color rendition is concerned, it was just excellent. Superior not only to other compacts, but also to some higher level products, for example, the Panasonic Lumix L3 and L5.This know how is still present in Casio.
I hope Casio will return to a somewhat bigger sensor size, and lower the pixel count.
The 67% rating is understandable, much more than the 72% awarded out of the blue to the Sony soandso200V in yesterday's review.The images at low ISO are way better compared to the Sony.
Of course it is utterly nonsensical that anything but lowest ISO is selectable in such cameras at all.
One had better avoid using the word quality in connection with the bitstrings produced by this product.
Cautiously speaking, the 72% rating is a bit surprising.
goodlensgoodlens: I don't get the concept of this: at the present moment I just select from my camera whether I want to shoot in colour or in B/W, how is this new model any better in terms of choosing the mode that I want to shoot in?
Maybe they should develop B/W glasses for the photographer too
@PetkaPlease think again. It is exactly the other way 'round.
How dirt cheap the red dot has become!I feel this is a catastrophic mistake in brand strategy.
Test setup flaw or camera flaw?
in the studio setup comparison, please to look at the Irish Cream bottle, at the letters IR.There is a dark spot around them, which does not occur in the studio scenes of most other cameras (didnt check them all). With the OM-D, the obscure effect occurs at any iso, in jpg and raw.
So, is the bottle a different one or did the camera create an artefact or did all other cameras suppress some detail (which I cannot believe) ???
djec: "'5-axis' image stabilization system"?!
ffs i hope the rest of the science behind the camera is slightly more intelligent.
They could have said 3 rotational plus 2 translational axisBut why? 5axis says enough.If you want to describe the funktion of the IBIS in exact terms, you must write a book.But there is no need for a course in theoretical mechanics here.
