Broken Hill: Thank you Pentax, it has been worth the wait

You sure?

Prairie Pal: At least Pentax has a road map, honors it, and is transparent enough to disclose it to their loyal customer base. ...Nikon!

Competitive advantage by keeping your competition guessing has its merits, too.

I said it would never happen, but I'm happy to be proven wrong.

ThePhilips: "Panasonic's JPEG high ISO noise reduction continues to disappoint us."

Hehe. A trait typical to female writing: "I like it" but "it disappoints us". For positive or neutral opinion - "I", but for the (esp strong) negative one - "we". :)

Considering that it is your only slip on the whole "Shooting Experience" page, I think it highlights the biggest disappointment with the little camera you had.

I think it is an unusual comment to make as generally we are reviewing cameras, not writing styles. However, I don't think it screams "sexist" just because someone describes behavior as typically female. Especially when the behavior is nothing that is either bad or good, just different.

Sad that we have become so sensitive that we can't even contemplate that men and women may commonly have different writing styles without feeling offended.

tkbslc: I've read how that works, but interesting to see. I didn't realize that the shutter seems to move at about the same speed, just with larger or smaller openings. I wish he had shown under 1/200 so you could see why max flash sync speed exists.

How did I miss that the first time? Thanks.

In reply to:

justmeMN: Canon says that the EOS-1D C includes "onboard 4K recording". Doesn't the Sony a7S require an external recorder to do 4K?

GH4 has a much smaller sensor, though. It has excellent quality, but simply cannot match the FF camera for DOF control and low light.

Herman Dijkhuis: If you wanna go professional go Sony. Canon is too expensive imo.
The war for professional cameras has begone, it will be hard for Canon to stay ahead of Sony.
Acc. to me Sony will win.

Cinema glass is generally manual anyway, so you can use whatever Cinema lenses you want on Canon or Sony.

In reply to:

Lassoni: I've always found it fascinating when watching these kinds of videos. They kind of show how much mankind has progressed in different areas (mechanics, technology..). So much that we don't pay too much attention to these stuff anymore in our everyday lives.

What boggles me, is that someone originally developed this tech without aid of computer. Heck, someone invented computers without the aid of a computer.

If the big one hits, those that are left are going to have to start all over and re-live another 200 year industrial revolution just to get back to being able to complain about that "ancient" Canon technology. (if they can figure out how to feed ourselves without modern technology)

In reply to:

norman shearer: This is a very niche camera that will only hold appeal to those who a) prefer the m43 lens lineup and b) covet the small size.

For everyone else the A6000 is only a tad bigger if you limit yourself to small primes and has a much better spec and sensor. No contest really.

A6000 is a fantastic camera. But when you try to put a lens kit together you start to get frustrated at the cost, performance and options compared to m4/3.

In reply to:

Snikt228: It's only a tiny fraction smaller than the Sony A5100 and very near the Sony a6000 which are both APS-C 24MP. Seems like it's time to ditch that old M 4/3?

In particular, the 16-50 pancake is very poor compared to the 12-32, while being larger.

This space reserved for complaints about how you didn't review "Camera X" yet.

RichRMA: I don't know. Phone reviews before plenty of good real cameras have been reviewed? Might as well review restaurants or movies.

"Might as well review restaurants and movies"?

That's really the argument you want to go with?

Mike FL: Google phone seems good, but Smartphone market is too tight.

"How Tight Is Smartphone Market? Xiaomi Joins Samsung, Apple in Top 3 for Only a Few Hours"

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-10-30/how-tight-is-smartphone-market-xiaomi-joins-samsung-apple-in-top-3-for-only-a-few-hours.html

Above was last year, and now "Xiaomi's new flagship smartphone sold out in 3 minutes".

One of they ways they cut costs is by not paying for patents and licensing because it is not enforced in China.

Mike FL: Saw some one THINK that Chinese Phone mfc does not have its own designed / MFCed CPU:

Lets take a look Google Nexus 6's CPU, and it uses "Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SOC" which is a popular CPU.

Lets look Chinese phone maker Huawei's CPU which is designed / MFCed by Huawei itself for its own Phone line, and here is the benchmark:

"Benchmark shows Huawei's octa-core Kirin 920 CPU breathing down Snapdragon 805's neck"

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Benchmark-shows-Huaweis-octa-core-Kirin-920-CPU-breathing-down-Snapdragon-805s-neck_id53571

Just like with AMD vs Intel, 8 or 16 core doesn't matter if they aren't fast cores. Apple's dual core processors are still some of the fastest mobile processors, period.

One big problem with Chinese brands is that they don't concern themselves as much with licensing the intellectual property that they are using. That doesn't matter in China, but once they try selling elsewhere, lawsuits pile up. I can't remember which brand it was that is already banned from India over patent and software infringement .

Jim Evidon: I usually avoid phone reviews on what used to be a digital camera site, but I decided to take a look at the review.

What I find is that digital phones are now where digital cameras were 10 years ago. As far as I can see, the only use for digital cameras in hand held phones is (1) use it if you need to catch the freeway accident you pass when your real camera isn't handy; i.e, it's probably better than nothing...a debatable point point. And/or (2) it's good for those people that really could care less about photography and like to engage in narcissistic exercises like taking selfies. Blech!

@maxnimo: Not if you don't have it with you when a photo opportunity presents itself to you. You have to have a photo before you can have photo quality.

It's pretty impressive what you can get from a camera phone.
