Daniel Bliss: Well, this is disappointing. Why not Fuji putting in an offer? Why not Nikon? Why not Canon? It's not good to have only one company that can really deliver the goods.
good for sony business. probably not good for anyone else's business or for consumers
It's a neat form factor for a superzoom, maybe there are some nice image quality techniques to get good HDR. I don't think anyone expects the color depth and dynamic range of large sensored cameras but if it can produce similar quality to typical compact super zoom cameras t in a flat bar like camera that's a nice achievement.
Not impressed, the LGG4 toasts this camera for low Iso detail.
I think the lens is just not as good as the best android Cameras these days.
I am still impressed with the quality of the LGG4
eat a dongle sony, i want something to kvetch about! YOU ALWAYS SCRUH US OVER
Mark Bergman: Most requested missing feature - I've owned my X-T10 since the first day is was deliverable. As an alternative to my Nikon D7100, it is doing a nice job. Low noise at high ISO for available light photos, half the weight of my Nikon (which I use regularly). So my first call to tech support was to inquire about the photo review feature. When one uses the electronic viewfinder, the only way to review the photo just taken is via the viewfinder. The camera will not switch to the LED display to allow us to "chimp" the photo. Tech support says "no the camera has no such setting and this is the most often requested feature request they receive".
Got it, understood now what the request is. I thought it was insane they would remove photo playback on LCD
how bizarre, my (now) ages old fuji x100s allows reviewing images in both EVF and back LCD. what use is the back LCD if not for playback? fuji sometimes makes the most bizarre design compromises
woo maybe the first integration of their csr imaging acquisition. COACH lives on!
www_zeeshan_de: The best ISP is a chip not touching the RAW data and giving the RAW data as output. No need for stupid interpolation algorithms from ISPs. With RAW, every body has the freedom to build the final image on their own, with or without interpolation.
lol raw snobs. long live the JPG!
xeriwthe: OMG HDR SO FAKE
i was being facetious i actually don't mind it, all photos are fake anyway, so lame to crop out field of view i don't see a crop of the world i see ~180 degrees!
OMG HDR SO FAKE
utomo99: I hope Fuji try to fix some of the problems using firmware update. such as video quality and Burts
i know right? Burts got it bad..
Horshack: Nikon silently shifted its strategy to full-frame several years ago, much to the chagrin of Pro DX users. If you go to a trade show you'll likely see this display in Nikon's booth:
hah so this is how ppl get the FF-wiener envy
looks like fuji and sony mirrorless designs crossbred
OBI656: I LOVE to read these responses to this article 😎 This kibitz club amaze me as always ... 😆
I wonder how actual camera should looks like and function to complete all of these sunset picture takers ... 😜
it's the purpose of the internet bro, armchair-experting
oluv: obviously i don't know a single song of "the most successful commercial pop stars of all time", but on the other hand i am rather into miles davies and herbie hancock, so hardly representative.
Oh yeah well I can enjoy any music that I like whether it is good or bad miles monk beejees monkees swift creed
dwill23: optical zoom.
I just read a bunch of comments comparing this to compacts, and larger cameras. The fact is, phones are still no where near compacts. Phones are just convenient, you now don't have to take a camera for snap shots.
I was at the beach with my GF and saw people taking pics of friends with the lighthouse way off in the background. With fixed, wide angle phones, the lighthouse is a tiny dot. It actually pushes it farther away.
With a $150 point and shoot, 20x optical zoom, I back way up and zoom in. Presto! The lighthouse is HUGE in the background. Mount Rushmore, last year, same camera. People taking pics and the president's faces are smaller than their friend's eyeballs. I back up, zoom in, and the heads are larger than my friend's. This is very dramatic and impossible with any camera phone.
NYC, Battery Park, back up, get statue of liberty HUGE in background. Not a tiny speck like everyone else shooting pics.
Optical zoom will set you apart. Carry one.
meh, who needs another subpar picture of a lighthouse/geyser/hotspring/buffalo plenty of those already on the internet done a thousand times better by other people already.
most photos people capture are for saving moments in time and a good cellphone camera is more than adequate for people to make a nice memorable capture provided they learn how to compose.
xeriwthe: wow serious innovation in sensor tech hitting the real time (sure, foveon's done it before but certainly not in a mainstream way). mad respect for sony's silicon engineering.
hope my favorite manufacturer can hold out long enough in today's insanely competitive camera business to bring their version to market!
ahh ok, still a normal bayer sensor but with more photodiode area. thanks.

2eyesee: It looks to me like the RX10M2 represents a better example of the 'convergence' that DPR talk about than the Canon XC10 - at half the price.
sony generally holds off for a couple years before selling a new sensor to competitors. look at the gap between the RX100 and the panasonic LX-100/canon g7x. or the 24MP APS-C NEX7 and the D7100.
hot damn sony pulling out all the stops on technology. congrats to sony
