DDWD10: One of the most well-rounded Canon compacts in a while!

But 0.5 fps continuous Raw shooting!

Some of the nicest images in a DPR review yet.
Particularly the cloud over the mountain. Very nice tones and colours.

aftab: I see lots of never-going to buy-jealous kind are talking about how ugly this camera looks. I will agree that this camera is not the best looking Leica. But the prize for ugly looking cameras should go to Sony. Forget DSLR, Sony can at least look at Pentax, Panasonic, Olympus, Samsung and Fuji to to learn how to make a decent looking camera.

Hey you are right this camera does look ugly!

Does it come bundled with a gym membership?

Johannes Zander: I have a D800, two V1 and a V2. Half a year ago I bought a E-M1 and I am very happy with it. Also I must say that E-M1 focusing and tracking is not as good as with the V2. But the choices of lenses for the m43 is much bigger than for Nikon 1 cameras.
The major andvantage is the firmware upgrading for the E-m1. It becomes a much better and more versatile camera with each firmware upgrade. And the Nikon 1 cameras, not. Nikon could make them much better with firmware upgrades.

It's the Fuji experience! : )

Dumb idea!

As the images show it still has the limitations of a small sensor no matter how good it is otherwise ie: large depth of field, Hi ISO noise.

In reply to:

anu l: after reading the review, I think this camera deserved a gold rating.

some of the compromises done are natural & rather deliberate, to keep it within it's category..... not something like "features gone wrong".

at least from the reviews on dpreview the canon T6s/i "lack a lot" compared to D5500.

Yes. Live view without showing the true exposure isn't actually live view and is almost useless. Nikon really needs to fix this on all their cameras as well as providing a decent buffer (why so stingy?).

Skipper494: Can never understand why people think that a third party knows a camera manufacturer's RAW algorithm better than the camera manufacturer and, of course, the latter's converter comes free.

GirchyGirchy . I disagree. NX2 is good just very slow. But using too much shadow loses too much colour. D-lghting though is hopeless. But used gently it is much better than ACR. Just save jpg and finish off in Photoshop.

Umutsezerkoc: Which one should I buy for all-around type of photography? I shoot everything! Street, landscape, sports.. etc.
Sony a6000
Nikon D7200
Canon 70D
I shoot videos lot too, but, touch screen doesn't matter so much, I just want the best quality and speed. Or should I wait for a new camera maybe 80d or a7000/a6100? If you want, you can recommend me another camera under $1500.

As you shoot videos a lot the 70D is the one or you. Also for sports too. Pair it with a 15-85 and 70-200L IS and you are good to go. Exactly what I recommended to a friend. He is very happy!
Start with the 18-135 stm if you can't afford those. Better for video too.

In reply to:

T3: Is Canon ever going to produce a camera that can do panorama sweep? I really enjoy this feature, especially in a compact camera. So many other cameras have this feature, but not Canon. I guess when it comes to panorama sweep, Canon sees it as impossible.

Agree.

Seems like they do need more attention to QC.

Part of me thinks why wasn't the camera released with this? Part of me says good on ya Fuji. After all I benefited from the firmware upgrades to my original X100 - released even after they had the X100s to market.

Dougbm_2: 28-200mm?
I think this is a misprint. Should be 28-300mm.
Just wish this was a 1" sensor as the 1/17 sensor is just too small and outdated for this otherwise nice camera.
Actually if it was 24-200mm and 1" I would probably buy.

@theblock. Not being serious mate. Just dreaming. You never know how technology will improve. Anyway look how compact Sony's Rx100 mk1 with 28-100 is or Canon's G7x at 24-100.

Antony John: I guess we'll also see a 12-24 Art lens at some time which, with this 24-35, would make quite a nice 2 lens setup for those interested in wide angle photography.
The 24-35 makes sense as a first introduction because I'd imagine the 24 - 35 F/Ls will probably have more 'universal' appeal amongst the 'wide' lenses.

I am hanging out for a 24-27mm f1.4 actually! : )

Think Sigma have lost the plot a bit here!

Link | Posted on Jun 20, 2015 at 07:24 UTC

Very short range. Would have to be significantly better than the 24-70.
