Leichhardt: Unbelievable!, I cant see any noise at Iso 800! I've been working on some old Velvia 100 scans today and ISO 3200 on this camera has considerably less noise/grain! In the 35mm format we have never had it so good!
Is that so? Canon with 1Ds had that some 7-8 years ago...As well as softness and a slightly washed images mainly because the CMOS sensor...
David Ferrari: Nice cooperative review, but I am a little surprised that a camera with that much noise at ISO 100 can get a Gold award.
Do you print pics?
Airless: The review said "Panasonic did almost everything right" and "With a few refinements in design and image quality, the camera would be darn close to perfect." So why did it only get 80%? If a camera that had "everything right" would get 100% then how does one get just 80% that has almost everything right and a lacking only "refinements" to be "darn close to perfect"?
Typical black & white aspects...So common!
YiannisPP: You're the RX100 is out of focus at the Queen of Hearts plane, not very good for a controlled studio scene, is it?
That' s right, but still can't understand how it is focused in the pics corners though... Lens?
It's funny and nice...A 200$ compact cam can nowadays produce images of similar IQ with 10 years ago DSLRs...And it's not in the top of the range...
abluesky: sample images.
Not really impressed with them.
Yes sharp, but kind of flat.
Need to see an artist use this camera.
Well I think that images lack of sharpness and I think that there is a problem in magentas...
Good job, Pana..!
A lot of companies, many of Japanese interest/ownership, are in Medical.Eizo monitors, Toshiba MRIs, Nikon microscopes, Pentax lenses etc. I wish the new involvement will drop the final bill of us all when needed medical attendance. If not, who cares apart their owners and shareholders?
Jen Yates: So many of you are missing the whole point. You're ignoring the reason why people shoot photographs and video using an iPhone. The very reasons that make the iPhone the most popular camera that has ever been made (Based on the number of photos taken and uploaded online).
1. People have it with them most of the time.
2. It will do things that a DSLR / pocket camera can often only do with the aid of a computer (Life effects, realtime panoramic stitching, time-lapse, slow-motion etc).
I've shot video with my iPhone with the kids. Silly little clips, time-lapse of storm clouds, stop motion clips of toys moving etc. All without a tripod, so I wish I had a case like this to make my iPhone easier to use and most importantly more fun when it's used for these fun tasks.
Α big tank of people so to take some money from them... Fair!
Ι wish it won't be famous after a crime act...
Jesko von Oeynhausen is a nice story teller for people they like such stories...No more no less, just that!
Sigma and Leica show the way... lol
Sony acquired Minolta some years ago...Kodak had some sort of "synergy" with Hasselblad from 90's.Now Kodak belongs to history.Maybe some guys from Minolta now in Sony, will find a partner in Hassis's staff to help them make things better...Sony's management seems they don't really know what to do with premium brands. Sony's corporate culture and goal does not offer ways to adopt "external" partners who are away from corporate thinking.They are good in advertising though...
Photoman: Lovely system, but why is these images of the body and lenses so under exposed? Maybe they didn't calibrate their big bright moniter? Rookie mistake.
I guess they 're doing it just to distinguish the brand from others.They have to be distinguished from the "flock", no matter what...The camera as a device is remarkable, apart all these marketing tricks...
Marketing's triumph over ignorant and snobbish people...
Τhe don't likes are the reason for the lower price,Original addons are more overpriced than the products they refer.
1. Natural is all about perception, Isn' it? So...2. In some cases a sole and only one good photo it only needs the appropriate software to HDR (Topaz suite for example)...3. Realistic lies in the eye of the beholder.
Samsung, Apple and Google?The first just has to pay 1 bn$ to the second for patents... lolGreat consortium... or deliberate play?
Nice price, smashing looks for the people they care about such looks, AA batteries, more than descent IQ I guess, a bridge cam offering all those most people needs, aiming in this particular segment of market, filling the low end of bridge cams with a brand name more than recognizable...A slow seller and a more than a welcomed gift for youngsters...Not bad...
