On #1 in France: Hands-on with DxO ONE article (193 comments in total)
In reply to:

Diogo Lopes: DSC-RX100 II - $599
DxO ONE - $599

Iphone6 (129 g) + DxO ONE(108g) = 237g (in your hand)
DSC-RX100 II - 281g (1 hand operation)

Cost to fix broken lightning connector (on the camera and/or phone) ????

Cost to add an adapter when Apple change its mind??

No thanks...
Flop of the year!

*it's funny how DP tried hard...

You have to add the cost of the iPhone to the DxO 1 if you want the combination.

Forgive me if I have repeated a preceding post. This might be an interesting product, but only for those who have Apple phones etc.

On Leica Q First Impressions Review preview (559 comments in total)

A lovely camera but not light. Still, a lens is included in the weight. I guess it depends how often one shoots at 28mm.

Another camera body to have to carry in my bag, along with the colour version.

ddtwenty: So much anticipation for in-body imagestabilizaer.

You would think from some comments that Panasonic cameras have no stabilization at all. Its in the lenses.

FrankS009: Hope to purchase this camera in the next year. What is not to like?

How does it fit in the hand?

F.

Their preview was cryptic to say the least. They describe the grip as "weird" whatever that means. I too am looking forward to trying it.

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (813 comments in total)

In terms of "convergence" I don't see how this is a more revolutionary product than the Panasonic GH4. And the GH4 shoots RAW still images, and still image can be produced from its 4K footage.

Is it the shape that says convergence to the author?

I would hate to have to the journalist who has to lug 2 lbs around to every event.

Is it the best bang for the buck for companies? We shall see it if sells.

In reply to:

regordyoll: Why a 1" sensor when a Sony A7 has a full frame sensor or a Sony A6000 has an APS-C sensor? I'd like to understand the reason. Thanks!

The GH$ has a larger sensor and is much lighter.

I would buy this camera in a minute if I could afford it. Not cheap in Canada.

Have a Sigma 60mm 2.8 that works well on my GX7. Would like to see more ultra wide lenses for m4/3rds.

On Aircrew challenge (13 comments in total)
In reply to:

FrankS009: My photo was disqualified because the pilot, pictured loading the plane herself with supplies for delivery to a remote location, did not wear a uniform. Bush pilots seldom do, especially in the heat of July. The pilot pictured is also owner of the freight company to whom the Beaver belongs.

As for the crew not being the central focus, I think loading the plane is a story that includes both crew and aircraft.

F.

Thank you for withdrawing it. I could not find a means of doing that myself.

There are some wonderful images in the challenge.

There was nothing to say she wasn't a pilot either. A pilot without regalia is still a pilot. No, at this point I am happy that the photo is not in the challenge.

Disagree with your points 1 and 3 that are concerned with composition. Point 2 is irrelevant - an unidentified pilot is still the pilot.

Good luck with the challenge.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (390 comments in total)

This doesn't look like a bad camera, at a good size. I wish it had GM5 EVF and controls, but then it would fill a different niche.

On Hands-on with Canon's 'not-coming-to-USA' EOS M3 article (553 comments in total)
In reply to:

Monvieux: I have no particular affinity for one brand over another although Canon, Nikon, Sony and perhaps Olympus and FujiFilm are the ones I would focus on. It is whomever makes a solid, reliable product for the specs I want. I like the concept of the camera but extra $$ for a viewfinder and a limited range of lens rules this model out for me. I'll wait for the Sony Alpha 7000 or other. Keep it out of NA where camera users may be more critical/insightful and perhaps less committed to a brand. Sites like DPreview do make me think broader than brand.

Don't forget Panasonic when you think of solid and reliable. And IQ as well.

Find myself more and more looking forward to a LX100 style "GX100" exchangeable lens camera between the GX7 and the GM5 in size.
