  • (1) Face AF. (2) Faster AF, as I feel the speed of the X100S AF was definitely oversold by Fujifilm--not nearly as fast as their marketing of its AF would suggest.
  • An RX1 successor with any notable improvements and a pop-up EVF, and there would be that much less in the ol' bank account.
  • SaltLakeGuy, are you sure about that? Because everything I've read--what little I could find--suggests that the FZ1000's optical design is attempting to increase the quality of defocus (smoother, ...
  • The FZ1000 looks, from the review, to be an excellent camera. I have a Sony RX10 and love it, but the FZ1000--from the image comparator--looks to have the image advantage (in terms of stills) in ...
  • martinj68, it might be due (at least in some part) to the sensor size of the Galaxy S5 relative to the RX10. Though I'm not familiar with the sensor size in the S5, I'm guessing that the RX10's is ...
  • Replied in RX10 Fireworks
    Thanks for sharing these. I've not shot fireworks before, but was always curious what settings I might start with. Given that I also have an RX10, it was cool to look at the EXIF on your photos. ...

  • If what is desired is a truly pocketable camera with a truly functional viewfinder (unlike the one on my Fujifilm X10, which is all but useless), I think it's going to be a little while--just...

  • oselimg, perhaps it was selling well at the original price. If so, why lower it? It was worth it to me when I bought it--it's just a better deal now, likely spurred on by this new competitor.

    I'm...

  • Mike FL, my RX10 has gone sledding during heavy snow fall. It has been in heavy rain a couple of times, too. And during these episodes, I was using it.

    While that might not be the rigorous testing...

  • Yes, oselimg, nothing says poser, hipster, wannabe like a camera that everyone thinks is either a compact superzoom, a small, inexpensive DSLR, or a too-old digital camera from the days when the...

  • I ordered mine from B&H, and it arrived exactly as you described. There was no tape on mine either, but it was clear upon examining the camera and everything else that it was brand spankin' new. I' ...
  • If I noticed a change in image quality with my filters, I wouldn't use them. (I was shooting for a long time without them, until I scratched one of my favorite lenses, after which I started using ...
  • sleepwalker400, I've not yet seen anything like that on any of my images, and I use filters almost 100% of the time. The only filters I use are by B+W (like this one ), which I've picked up for all ...
  • arhmatic, if you have the need for something like a D4--and if you've actually shot a D4--you might begin to understand how style isn't really a concern where cameras like this are concerned.

  • Low-light performance is certainly one key reason. I still haven't experienced better low-light performance than from the D4.

  • If I wasn't surrounded by Nikon glass, I'd seriously consider the 1DX over the D4. I've been very impressed with the Nikon in super-low-light settings, though, and it seems from what I've seen from...
