quezra: Finally the tele lens! Now where's the EVF and grip to use it properly?

Yes ...it needs to be at least as big as their smallest slr ...otherwise whats the point.

In reply to:

Mike FL: This Sony is the NIGHTMARE for Canon G1XMK2 if RX100M3 Lowlight IQ is as good as RX100M2 [which is much better than Canon G1X MK2].

Forget about Nikon 1 as Nikon J1 with 10/30mm lens is priced @$199 in OfficeDepot in US.

IQ is everything, and four poor IQ Nikon J1 (4x199=796) is $2 cheaper than one RX100M3 ($798).

Well executed, Sony!

Sounds good but IQ is usually way the down the list, as evidenced by your post stating that IQ is everything yet I can think of about 25 or 30 cameras right off the bat that have better IQ.

On Calumet Oak Brook, Illinois store reopens this Sunday article (42 comments in total)
In reply to:

BRPWS: and what about the employees Calumet screwed. It seems to me that bankruptcy for companies like Calumet come at great cost to the people who worked and supported them as well as customers. How many times does a company have to go bankrupt for them to stay out of the business altogether.

I agree with BRPWS ...if a company buys the name then expect the reputation the name comes with. Calumet was a thief and if this new company wants the name without paying back the customers the name ripped off then their a thief too.

supeyugin1: "On the top of the camera here's a built-in flash nestled under the panel just above the lens mount, and a proprietary accessory port hidden under the cover in the middle of the top deck. "

I see that built-in flash is on the front of the camera. The cover on top of the lens mount is the LCD hinge.

...the other cover.

On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (596 comments in total)

Looks like a nice little camera ...with a nice big camera price. Why is this so expensive?

Direct link | Posted on Mar 14, 2014 at 01:37 UTC as 73rd comment

Well, usually most of the comments here are "anti-brand" type but this time I have to agree with most of them.
The camera looks great and I would definitely be interested. Looks like the nicest of the 1 series yet ...but $1199? That is almost just about insane. I need neither the EVF nor the grip, yet I have to buy it to get the camera ...dumb. Nikon is making people buy a camera that most people will buy for the size yet those people have to also buy the grip that will never be used by most? C'mon.

Things like this and like the Canon EOS-M AF make me think that maybe it is time for Nikon to Canon to start losing massive amounts of money on their photo divisions. Ashame ...great looking and spec'd camera.

In reply to:

Marty4650: Wait.... can this possibly be right?

$2,000 for a Nikon V3 with a 3X normal zoom lens, an optional EVF, and a battery grip to make it larger? $1,000 more for a telezoom lens?

Suddenly.... a Fuji XT1, or an Olympus EM1 looks like a bargain!

Just wondering ...where is the $2000 coming from?

Dheorl: He did a pro photographer cheap camera challenge recently as well. Camera wasn't as terrible as some of the previous ones but he did get some very cool shots.

Just saw that last night ...honestly, didn't think it was all that good but you can tell that the guy definitely knew his stuff.

In reply to:

ImagesInstyle: it wont sell outside because america's always complaining about something.
no matter what camera is made, there will be a group of trolls *itching about this and that.
Japanese people dont *itch like americans, and i dont blame them for keeping it only in japan.

You both have good points...

In reply to:

happypoppeye: Well, the one major item wrong with the M1 was the autofocus so lets hope Canon got that right this time. Not sure what they (as well as Nikon) are thinking but good job not cannibalizing your low end SLR sales and at least keeping the money from that cannibalization ...let the other companies get the money and cannabilize them instead.

...I'm not that interested in sales numbers and thats why I don't google the facts. Way to try and demean the original post to make your point.

...and there is one thing that makes all of these bad for social photography or at least the type shown in the main photo above. ...people drinking, spilling drinks, and dropping things. The best social camera I've used is the panny ts20 ...waterproof, cheap, who cares, have fun.

On Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup 2013 article (94 comments in total)
In reply to:

rube39: What about the Canon EOS M? It is small, easy to use, has two excellent kit lenses, a nice touch screen interface, a large sensor, and after the latest firmware update, it delivers decent enough AF speed.

The EOS-M has horrible AF even with the update and I wouldn't recommend it for any beginner.

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: I understand the significance of a camera being small and light enough to be with you vs. left at home but beyond that, come on. Will DPR be testing shirt pockets, vest pockets, tight jeans? How about the top 10 cameras for sitting on?

Thats a great comment because it clearly shows you don't understand the significance of a camera being small.

If it was pure photography they would announce the product and than sell it. This is pure marketing BS.
