On Enthusiast compact camera roundup (2014) article (185 comments in total)
In reply to:

D1N0: None of these camera's are very compact, but the FZ1000 certainly not. It is bigger than most entry and mid range dslrs, and even than some enthusiast dslrs (like the K-3)

Then why would you be looking at a camera with a 25-400mm (equiv) zoom lens?

Marty4650: I am guessing when Dpreview said "fixed lens may not appeal to some shooters" as a con for the X100T, they really meant "prime lens" since ever camera in this group has a fixed lens.

Fixed focal length, maybe?

mpgxsvcd: I will read the article when you add the other valid competitors for the LX100 to the article. Right now it just looks like an article to promote the LX100. And I am the biggest LX100 Fanboy out there. However, I still want to see a fair fight. Right now this article just looks like an advertisement for the LX100 and not a true comparison.

I'm sorry that Dpreview insulted you personally by not including your favorite camera.

alexzn: Roby- don't pay attention to people deriding your picture. It's really good and some portion of the people on DOR are jealous, prudish, or both to the point that the only thing that satisfies them are picture of cats or garden flowers. You can find them also discussing rendering of green tones in the latest obscure Raw converter. In truth they should never come near a decent camera because it will be a waste of good equipment.

#1 image is soft core? Really??? Get a life, people, you have no idea what soft core is... Now go back to cat pictures...

Oh, yeah, and to people saying that these photos are all bad- show me what you've got...it's easy to dump on other people s work behind a screen name.

withdrawn. I'm getting off this strange merry go round.

RichRMA: You can't bend the laws of physics. Sensors can be made any which way, but the small ones will never, ever match the larger ones. Back illuminated, electron-multiplying, it doesn't matter. They are modest enhancements that produce a slightly better product, but a 1/2.3" sensor will never be a m4/3, APS, etc.

smaller sensor are actually significantly better per area than large sensors. The difference of course is that images from small sensors is enlarged so much more at any given output size that their flaws are also magnified. A small sensor would have to be several times better than a large sensor for this to be made irrelevant. And it is unlikely that large sensor tech will stagnate at such a level compared to small sensor tech.

There is also the issue of DOF control, which perhaps can be overcome through software and processing with unique solutions such as lytro, but those come at the cost of complexity and usability.

GeorgeP71: Maybe I am getting grouchy. But I could not give more than an8/10 to any of these

8/10 is a pretty high grade isn't it?

HowaboutRAW: There's another softcore aspect to pict #1:

The woman's hands aren't behind her neck as if she's stretching, the hands are clearly placed to imply that they could belong to another person. This is very likely done with purposeful ambiguity.

I'd go so far as to say the hands were made a bit bigger via perspective control in PhotoShop.

Funny he keeps trying to defend his use of the term "softcore" despite being backed into a corner by anyone with an ounce of sense and reason.

Oh I thought we were just seeing how absurd we could be looking for ridiculous innuendos.

You are one to talk. The obvious innuendo of the word "raw" and the fact that you capitalized it for emphasis is only matched by your bold sexual proposition. "How about raw? How about raw what? Am I some piece of meat for your dirty amusement? And then to choose that as your user id? FILTH!

If you consider that "softcore" how do you handle the beach or just walking about in public on a warm day?

Compared to the Canon and Fuji system he has.

What lenses will you use? I keep wanting to shoot Sony for the great bodies they put out but then get stumped on trying to put a good lens kit together.

Most people just want good enough. Does it matter if it isn't the best?
