Great! One over the iPhone! ? ? Best for tethered mobiles. Is this or is there otherwise actually something better than PS Express on Android now though?

The new shots are better I note! They show good sharpness and colour rendition with nothing alarming about the DR when the contrast is not crazy in the scene/subject.

I note a word of cauition on the f stops below, but as a quick reveiw gallery this is now padded out better.

Thank you DPR for listening to us. Sony and C Zeiss make great sensors / lenses respt. so they deserved this.

The best thing from the two cameras is that it will kick Pana- Oly to drop prices ( it has already started), introduce more in built EVFs and speed up their kit zooms or next generation zooms.

The j1/v1 will have most competition from the top end G12 / XZ1 / LX5 compacts and not from NEX, mFT or even NX.

Nikon's own images are of course significantly better than the P&S outside the office: they are not super sharp but the skies in particular were suprisingly noise free for such a small sensor.

If the camera is aimed at people who don't understand DOF anyway, then why install a world leading AF system and 60 fps?

So far the IQ is not up to scratch with the best single lens compacts like the LX5, the XZ1 and the G11/12.

But people will pay more for a purple nikon if Ashton Kutcher has one.

Really quite sharp images, and I guess they have taken their time to make sharp, telecentric lenses to go with the allegedly class leading AF which we are yet to really have a comparison on.

However major FAIL in launching such slow zooms against fuji, sony and the main event at this party: mFT. The dof is much deeper than mFT even, so no wonder the focusing looks sharp.

ISO3200 is really nosiy and DR looks suspiciously about as good as you can get with such a small sensor.

Just take a good long look at that DOF, wide open. FAIL on slow zooms Nikon.

Where are your equivalence vehement, anti four thirds people now?

+1 for AF we can expect from Nikon. + 1 for size. +1 for a PEN /GF priced model. +1 for not going crazy on mpx count over IQ.

-10 for slow lenses and awful ergonomics.

The key will be lens resolution with the smaller sensor. The Oly ZX-1 demonstrates this well; surpising IQ from this and the G12 for even smaller sensors.

Looks rushed out to the market in terms of body ergo', and slow lenses which will have very deep DOF.

GeorgeZ: Very nice looking but no flash :-( Otherwise it would go well with the new Pana pancake-zoom.

Losing the hotshoe to the EVF or blue tooth stations is not such a big deal: the PENS all have remote wireless flash activation built in. But it is a minor irriation!

Jogger: time for oly to dump that 12mp sensor. not saying they need more mp, but they need a better sensor.

Comparing it to a D3 is like comparing a big fat Rolls Royce or Hummer to a Yamaha R1: small and does the job admirably. mFT sensors do need to improve though to keep the system competitive.

Mssimo: Up to 1600 ISO, EPL3 is up to par with the Sony 5N any other 12-18Mp camera out there. Maybe because of better lenses?

6400iso looks terrible

The pens have IBIS which makes several full exposure stops manageable hand held for the same ISO as a non IBIS camera.

In reply to:

sbjaerum: Why can't sensor shift IS be used during video recording?

I think it is because it is seeking to stabilise a still image as it is designed for: heat or pixel smear may be two side eeffects. But for stills this of course works with ANY lens you can cobble, glue or weld on the PENS or FT cameras.

Good entry, deserved a higher placing- I see it is true about the TL series- a very good compact! The image is sharp and the original must be well exposed too.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 19, 2011 at 19:49 UTC as 2nd comment

This deserved a far higher placing!! A classic shot of steam at signal ! May be more dramatic in BW, and certainly very antique / period. The camera handels the difficult contrast in the image very well ( better than olympus FT I must say - being an FT user!!)

On K160 in the Steam Locomotives. Read the rules or risk being disquallified. challenge (1 comment in total)

This shot will definetly be better in black and white: the containers distract and the steam will be far more dramatic. Worht putting up on "the digital darkroom" forum on dpreveiw for others to adjust and play with it.

Cpatured somethign good there!!

I think there is a crop with the person larger, and this would work better in either sepia or "posterised" / dramatic effect DR. Worth putting up on the "digital darkroom" forum in full size for people to adjust and show results from photoshop etc.

Good composition, but the loco is just cut off at the buffer. A 60th of a second is a bit slow for the choo choos. NYMR ?

I think this would have been a better shot in colour. Brittania was in green when I saw her, but that was a long time ago.

I think for period feel shots in sepia you need more reference like semaphore signals or 19thC buildings. Not that i'm a train spotter or anything...

Great shot! This beats many in the top 5!!! Sorry I was too late to vote .

Direct link | Posted on Sep 19, 2011 at 19:32 UTC as 1st comment

really nice detail! Should have been further up the voting. Did you use a soft focus vignette effect?
