nerd2: Nice looking toy with tiny sensor.

Actually is the other way around: 'So let's put away the "needs" and be realistic about what our "wants" really are.' The list of our "needs" have no cameras in it; cameras are only in the "wants" list.

marcio_napoli: According to ARRI's Product Manager, Marc Shipman-Mueller:

"4K, right now, is way overhyped," he said. "What's more important than resolution is overall image quality".

Of course, that statement comes from mid 2013. Things have changed a bit.

But one thing is absolutely for sure, only on gear forums where people are obsessed about tech, that we're already talking about 8k.

4k is barely catching up.

Do anyone here think there's a real need for 8k ? Really ??

The problem is that at any year during the progress in media through the years, sentiments have always been like you say here. Namely, who needs more than what we have now?

"need?" I'd argue none of what we talk about here falls in the true category of "need"

Excellent! Both lenses are very attractive and your demonstration was awesome and educational as well.

ThirstyDursty: Clever Marketing Angle. Humor People.

Bunch of people here need to reconsider their stance on life...hating and bashing things is just a sign of your own insecurities and immaturity.

Of course being small has trade-offs (such as noise, DR)

But has benefits...size, weight...total cost of a lens kit etc

Different tools for different people.

I'd wager that for most people it is sufficient.

You say posters here are showing their own insecurities bashing things, but isn't this Ad from Olympus bashing DSLR's and their owners?

A terrific video review. I learned a lot watching it. This is a very good way to present a new camera.

In reply to:

wootpile: good samples, shows the limitations of the lens, perhaps the format

Ridiculously expensive camera! same pricepoint as a Fuji kit!

Correction, Panny has a 25/f1.4 with AF, AND there are many wonderful f0.95 manual-focus lenses, all with very high qualities. Do SONY and FUJI make fast lenses like these?

Cariboou: After joint to Adobe Cloud almost one month ago today I upgrade from LR4.4 to LR5 I have to say that while pay 57$ for a Adobe Cloud for me it's ok, I hate pay 200$ for cable tv, internet and phone home any month this bug me believe me!

Do you pay less? My bill for Cable TV, Internet, and cell phone is more than $200/month in California.

On article Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? (1508 comments in total)

I'm disqualified since I have not used any of the cameras in the poll. Otherwise, I'd vote for Sony's X100 because it was such a surprise camera.

I sure seems that Sony is leading everyone else with their sensor technology!

Jogger: Nokton 25 0.95 should be on that list. Its certainly interesting.

I agree. This list is biased to Nikon and Canon cameras?

Link | Posted on Nov 17, 2011 at 01:06 UTC

Somehow this is becoming a little insane. A fixed lens camera for $600 is a bargain! I must be in some other universe of camera owners... Al

In reply to:

Souciantmag: What a puff piece. It's not journalism - it's an ad.

If this isn't a puff piece, then why only talk about the iPhone? There are other smartphones with even better cameras, yet your piece only mentions the iPhone. Thus I concur that this is more an Adv than a journalistic piece.
