aeschylus: If you've a desktop computer and conventional screen I struggle to see the point of manipulating images on any tablet. Better to use the former and then transfer them.
If you want a laptop with the screen quality Apple use in all their products better starting looking at the $1399+ models among PC laptops. Want the lightness and built quality, $1699+ models
TurboElephant: "The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 offers more bells and whistles, but you're limited to its fixed zoom lens and smaller (albeit not that much smaller) sensor."
1" sensor = 116 mm243 sensor = 225 mm2
So GM1's 43 sensor s almost twice as big as the RX100, I wouldn't call that "not much smaller" ;)
And the APS-C users are right.
1" is the biggest sensor size using BSI technology giving it 162.4 mm2 of effective photosite in conventional term. That's about 72% the area of m4/3 sensor meaning m4/3 is 38% bigger than SONY's 1" sensor.
m4/3 covers 60% of the area of APS-C which is at 370.52 mm2 and that means APS-C is 64.6% bigger than m4/3. If the m4/3 is not using SONY's fab, the difference would be more pronounced.
SONY 1” is only 1/3 stop from m4/3 and SONY m4/3 is 2/3 stop from SONY APS-C. Panasonic m4/3 is probably very similar to SONY 1” and 1 stop from SONY APS-C. So GM1 is effectively a RX100 II with much slower lens but the option to swap lenses.
Wi-Fi and GPS, finally. Now if only SONY remember they used to include GPS on their camera.
24-105mm F/4 or 24-150mm F/4?
You asked for it now you got it. LIVE WITH IT.
Price for A7 is what A99 should be with all the normal DSLR precision machining parts out. 1/8000s shutter and big EVF is nice.
Now we wait for the way cheaper and just as good Sigma version or Sigma rebranded.
Francis Carver: Considering that the Nikon 1-series is one of the all-time top-notch "DOG CAMERA" finalist of all times.... I suppose the thinking with Nikon was, hey, this could generate us some publicity. It already did -- just not goodwill for Nikon.
The Sakar-Polaroid camera looks a whole lot sleeker, i clearly superior in technology and OS to that lame duck Nikon J-cam, and costs a whole lot less money to boot. So, perhaps it is no wonder than down-on-its-luck Nkon felt they had to "revive" the dwindling fortunes of the 1-series by filing this lawsuit.
Francis, would you happen to be using an Android phone?
I wonder how many of the gearhead here actually read Nikon 1's review so they know what the 1 series looks like.
With so many "photographers" jabbing at Nikon 1 and support "Polaroid', why don't you put your money where yout mouth is and go out and buy an iM1836?
I have seen about equal number of Nikon 1 and m4/3 camera on the street of New York and according to Amazon they are selling well. Just because their user might not be pro-gearhead like you means squat.
70D combines just about every camera features into 1 camera.
Remember, this is 50% Jony Ive and 50% Marc Newson. We already know what Marc Newson design is like and if Jony Ive haven't spend his 50% covering up Newson's design, one glance at this camera will turn people into stone.
Jony Ive saved millions of lives without you knowing.
The new test scene is so hard to use. I am so used to the old one that the new one leaves me lost on where I should use to compare cameras. The watch face, egypt on the globe, paperclip, battery, old lady's face and label on bottle are all gone.....
yabokkie: what's the fastest shutter and lowest ISO (32?) also would appreciate if DPReview could measure angles of all phone cameras.
Menneisyys, you sounds like a broken record.
For me, wider is only better some of the time. When taking picture of my friends, I am very aware the wide angle lens is going to make them fatter.
D1N0: Now your camera first needs to read your fingerprint before you can take a pic. Bye bye opportunity. The camera of the future is called ...... Glass
Do you need to input password with current iPhone to take photo? As I recall, password unlock is bypassed if you just want to take photo and not access the phone.
dark goob: Awesome. I think this very well could be the first DPReview challenge win ever for an APS-format camera. Note: so-called "APS-C" digital cameras are not really APS-C format. Outside of BS marketing hype, here in the real world of hard facts and accurate information, APS-C is a subset of the Advanced Photo System film format, and the dimensions of the APS-C frame equal 25.1 × 16.7 mm. No digital camera has ever been made with an APS-C format sensor. Liars call 23.7 x 15.7 mm "APS-C" but they are liars.
I believe France and Russia reprocess most of their spent fuel and China started doing so recently
MSRP is incorrect. Amazon is preordering this at $849.00
Me likey. Still, I wish it has OIS.
rb59020: In my experience having owned multiple brands of cell phones. Cell phone batteries are generally toast at around 24 months. This has been convenient for companies like Verizon, T-Mobile etc. Most soccer moms and other non-tech types could easily be talked into a contract renewal with a replacement of upgraded phone purchase, as the commission paid salesman didn't stock the $49.95 battery needed. Anyone with a butter knife and a screw driver could of course replace the battery with one from Amazon for $12.95 shipped free with Amazon Prime.
Now the manufacturers are making phones like the Nokia 1020 with a "non-removable" battery? Nothing like planned obsolescence. I'll keep my crappy HTC HD7 forever, at least the memory is upgradable and the battery replaceable.
"...It may be true with Apple, who refuse to put long-lasting batteries in iPhones...."
That is just BS. It is like saying the tires on your daily driver wear out faster than the convertible you only take out on summer weekends. iPhone sees far greater charge cycle than any other phone.
Joe Ogiba: This will join the EOS M in the bargain bin .
Half off it is still $800
