In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: Yes, thanks for the raw file, but that's an odd way of deploying them. (Grammar is correct here.)

I look forward to checking them out in ACR 9.

You sure it was Nixon and not Nikon?

Due to the limited dynamic range available, the raw workflow runs like an absolute dream on my Commodore 64.

Zigadiboom: At last a decent resolution sensor that is competent enough to use for Instagram and Facebook. However I did notice that selfies lacked a little in the way of dynamic range though.

Haha yes no problems.

Canon Interviewer: "So tell me about your previous work experience and one of your stand out achievements"

Prospective employee: "I previously worked at Nikon HQ for several years. My greatest achievement is that I headed the team that was responsible for the quality control of the D600 sensor".

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: Real-world samples (beta) article (268 comments in total)

Looks like Dpreview have made full use of Mark II's 65 point AF when taking these shots.

These samples is a bit like test driving a Ferrari in a straight line at 60kmh and then commenting on its performance and handling.

Mike FL: The guy is interesting, and he is not very sure that LX100 is better than 15 yeas old Canon P&S:

"Announced September 18, 2000, the PowerShot G1 sported a 3.3 megapixel CCD sensor...The Canon G series has been through more than a decade of evolution and remains attractive to enthusiasts looking for a compact with lots of manual controls."

"...the Lumix LX100 is undoubtedly a high-priced compact...As for how much we’ll miss those 3.2 million pixels, though, for that we’ll have to wait and see."

Ok, he will tells us what he sees...after he has LX100 to compare to the 15 yeas old P&S.

Ummm Mike, I think you have misunderstood what the author is meaning when he said,

"...the Lumix LX100 is undoubtedly a high-priced compact...As for how much we’ll miss those 3.2 million pixels, though, for that we’ll have to wait and see."

What he is referring to by the 3.2 million pixels is the difference in useable resolution between the GX7(16mp) and LX100(12.7mp). I simply doubt that the author is anticpiating making any comparison between the poor old Canon G1 to the LX100 once he manages to get his hands on one.

I own a Canon G1X but Canon's sensors are so old they knew Gandalf before he had a beard and Burger King whilst he was still a prince.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2696 comments in total)

This camera reminds of the Lexus ES300. Superb build quality and outstanding reliability with a top shelf 65 point auto focus system.

But under the hood it has the same v6 engine(20.2mp) as its lesser Camry stablemate.

True its not the same 18mp sensor that we have kept seeing from Canon since the time of Jesus but the 20.2mp is really not leaps and bounds better. In fact the gains are minimal.

I understand this very much a performance based camera but image quality is still paramount...and at $1800 it is simply astounding to know that you can get way better image quality for the price.

On Fujifilm X30 First Impressions Review preview (471 comments in total)

Fuji have no doubt produced some fine cameras over the last few years. However to be frank this model falls short. The body is much larger than the RX100 yet the sensor is much smaller. The X30's camera dimensions r almost the same as the G1X Mark 2 yet the latter's sensor is way bigger.

Fuji's sensor tech is very good with excellent low light performance and dynamic range particularly from its APSC's. Stuff one of those or slightly smaller into the X30 body and people will definitely take notice.

On Ricoh announces Pentax XG-1 superzoom article (205 comments in total)

Hmmm if this camera had a constant f1.2 aperture throughout the entire zoom range where it could just slip into your pocket it might have maybe had half a chance against the likes of the Panasonic FZ-1000 and Sony RX10.

Despite the use of a camera phone and the photos being edited, it clearly demonstrates that it is the keen eyed person behind the camera that ultimately determines the composition and quality of the shot.

'We hope that you will continue to choose Nikon products for your photographic needs.'

Well one thing you still have to give Nikon is that they have a sense of humour!

Hmmm...wonder if Nikon will sue me if I develop a sensor which requires rubbing oil on its surface.

The price is very reasonable as I believe paying a premium for a Hasselblad over a Pentax is well worth it... but the lack of wifi is a deal breaker for me as I need ready access to facebook and instagram to upload pictures of my kids and pets running around.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summary article (535 comments in total)

Being a G1X owner I was looking forward to a faster lens, better AF performance and macro performance. Looks like Canon have delivered here.

But why take the swivel screen and all dials away! Why?? Also no phase detection it seems.

However cramming a F2-3.9 lens relative to such a large sensor into the size that they have does deserve a pat on the back. Well done Canon. Look out Sony RX100.

Right. So the Canon 550d of half a decade ago has been re-released by another name with a few bits and pieces actually taken out of it.

I'm not sure whether to cry or to laugh.
