Ben O Connor: Sony tries to say to those, who owns the old hotshue model with optional evf

"hahahahahahah"

:D

Man, that optional evf was more expensive than most 32" TELEVISIONS!!!!!!

I was mentioning HX50 & optional evf. I bet evf would fit on different bodies as well, but just does not fit to the same bill with that camera :)

Now its more logical layout. However, that sensor is pretty small for my taste even it's pocketable in year 2015 A.D.

As an enthusiast photographer, I kinda have no use for this camcorder. However after I watched this video;

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=41zAfvdsUJs

I kinda fell in love with it. First of all it uses M43, more importantly its tiny (as my gm1). And as long as I keep watching it shows that, they got solution to individual problems.
-using m43 mouth
-small dimensions
-controls ease of use
-connectors
-battery and its endurance

Just amazing! A small and minimalist camcorder yet surprisingly sophisticated. (which is not for home vidoegraphers...) and the best part its 1K $£€!!!! Its pretty affordable.

I seriously wish that it dies not have slow response times like the aps-C sensor Canon compacts. Congratulations Canon, you finally impressed me.

On Nikon 1 J5 offers 20.8MP BSI sensor and revamped look article (152 comments in total)

Its a beautiful camera with rotating screen. I did not like it on GF7.

But as a GM1 owner, it has no built-in IS, has smaller sensor, still more expensive!!!!

Maybe UW series of 1" series would be useful for ruggedness sake, but all others... I don't feel it.

There are two deals;

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: Very well reviewed! This is ridiculously big for a cam made in 2014 by this sensor size! It would be an awesome machinery by an APS-C sensor.

Fuji, belongs to "film" ! Its the age of "SENSORS" ;)

Well, have you seen LX100 in real life ? Wake up bro. Its afternoon here ;)

On A Compact PEN: Olympus Stylus SH-2 Hands-on article (150 comments in total)

A classic camera; not by outlook but also sensor size!

Interesting upgrade...

Its so "last season" compare to D750, more expensive than D7000/71000, and still has something inside of it called "mirror" !!! If its OVF sake, well Pentax has the best of all at that crop. Don't tell me its "burst rate sake", coz better burst at smilar sensor sized NEX cameras of Sony.

Hopefully final image from this camera is good, other than that, who would bother buying one!

Ben O Connor: First releasing the "High Quality Expensive optics" (35mm F 1.4) then releasing mediocre optics but "faster autofocusing" one! (35mm F 2.0)

Interesting order. Seems like all camera company has its own tactics to juice off their customers!

Well, in MFT world; they fist release the crappy one... Then they releases better versions
- Olmypus 17mm F2.8 pancake,Olympus 17mm F 1.8, Leica 15mm F 1,7
- Olympus 45mm F1,8, leica 42,5 mm F 1,4 and soon cheaper but built in IS 42,5mm F 1,7

I find it rather more logical. They markets like "Look bro, we are improving your final image!" And it makes it sell.. But Fuji... Its not even film anymore... Its Fuji ;)
