On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (423 comments in total)

A fine camera the RX-10. I bought one and sold it because it didn't fit any niche for me.

LWW: I probably won't use it - but I think I'll buy one for that gadget on the bottom. Give the ego a boost and impress someone at the same time. :-)

Just don't drop it on your foot!

PC Wheeler: PSE 11 works well for me, with other tools. I'll go with PSE 12 -- but wait until the price drops a bit.

Well, I did the upgrade (price dropped $10). Main reason is a new camera which needs ACR 8.2 for RAW support.

Seems faster on my 13" MacBook Air, perhaps due to now being 64 bit and using more of my memory.

On LF1 - Experience Report article (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

sbansban: I wish DPR would do in-depth reviews of this and many other exciting compacts that I and surely many more readers are considering and are eagerly awaiting to be reviewed: Panasonic FZ70, an updated travel zoom group test, NEX-3N, Olympus OM-D E-M1, Nikon Coolpix P7800, Fujifilm F900EXR, Canon SX280 HS, Nikon Coolpix P330 etc. DPR do have a lot of limitations and constraints, but I keep visiting this site mostly in expectation of these compact camera reviews which are so much easier to buy and use everyday

Once they were able to do that, pretty much. But the number of cameras being released these days is somewhat overwhelming. I'm surprised the producers can do so many models and stay in business!

On LF1 - Experience Report article (5 comments in total)

Canceled the S120 order and decided to give the LF1 a try. Some of the samples posted in the forum and in reviews here http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Panasonic_Lumix_DMC_LF1/sample_images.shtml and here http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/panasonic_lumix_dmc_lf1_review/sample_images/ are pretty impressive. This "Lens very soft at the borders and corners with very visible aberrations" could be from LF1 sample variability.

Worth a try: The EVF and 28-200 mm range are appealing. If a no go, then the S120.

Nice review, Timur. Thanks. Moved me to order an S120 vs. LF1. We'll see how that works out, though the sample images here at DPR http://www.dpreview.com/news/2013/10/07/canon-powershot-s120-real-world-samples make me optimistic.

Mavica FD7 was my first. One problem was it shot interlaced images as I recall, so it was very easy to get jaggies. The 10x zoom lens sure was a kick: Spoiled me forever for 3x lenses :-) Soon after I got my hands on an Oly C2100UZ ("Uzi"); I still have prints at 8x10" in my living room with that amazingly good 2 megapixel camera.

In reply to:

PC Wheeler: Odd thing: Cannot change ISO on all at once to say 3200, at least I could not figure out how to. And when I changed it for GX7 it also changed the part of the image shown.

It was! Murphy's Law.

On Is the snapshot dead? post (70 comments in total)

I think the "snapshot" is becoming the province of cell phone cameras. My wife uses hers that way a lot, and only uses a "real camera" (aka dedicated camera) when we're traveling. She also often shoots and then immediately shares the image via email or text message.

I'm older and more of the old school. I most always have a camera and seldom shoot with my iPhone.

In reply to:

flektogon: So, it looks like the sensor used in GX7 is identical with what the GH3 uses. At least that's what the "digineff.cz" claims:
Podle prvních informací by měl být model GX7 výkonem rovnocenný s modelem GH3.

Looking at the spec, number of pixels GX7 vs. GH3, apparently different sensors

Not the sales at http://www.dpreview.com/forums/1056 -- but I assume you will have some profit from the GearShop sales.
