Ben O Connor: Sounds Like they've put a Rembrandt's DNA to this machine!

My poor E-PM1 has 1/2 of a full frame !!! This one contains a few full frames inside, Crazy!

Really ? Why do I multiply the focal length with 2 always then ? B..ards, I've cheated :)

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2970 comments in total)

Bravo Sony.

Finally a great enthusiast cam that can stand for long years. It is one of the best combination of all specs which would be necessary for an enthusiast. Yet pocketable.

My only excuse is, I already have a PM1 and couple of lenses. And by purchasing a 17mm F 1.8 lens, I will have all I need. For smaller price I'll have bigger sensor & brighter at 35mm...

if I would not have this system a year ago, I would buy this cam and would interested with many accessories, such as filter adapter & uw housing. Sadly no hotshue on this, no place for external mix, for such video capable device. Congratulations.

Ben O Connor: And one thing is ILLOGICALLY interesting,

while Sony can offer same sensor with a knife sharp lens (its not razor sharp, coz there comes an Olympus with F 0,95 according to some rumors), while Nikon offers the same sensor with a chunky glass, which has a optical specs, smilar to the bottom of beers bottle!!! Yet none of those lenses are pocketable !!!!!!!

just very hard to believe :)

I like small numbers after "F" letter... Some says its relative, some does not agree... Lets not start a war from it :)

I would say

"dude, why not 24mm!! What is 28mm for Moses sake! "

but then I remembered that Sony has the best built-in panorama function. Sony wins.

PS. Hopefully they offers underwater housing as well.

On Senior Nokia imaging engineer is joining Apple post (35 comments in total)

Even apple realized that, they are lacking of innovation in hardware... Nokia has the best lens-sensor mixture out there without any software app need.

not just for Lumia 1020, but also for Lumia 925, 930, 1520 and tablet.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2301 comments in total)

Why is everyone so angry!! Seriously.
There are people "out there" (not me) who want to touch something Leica... M's are costing a bit alot, even second hands (both lens &body) are not friendly...
So here is a working class hobbyists leica interchangeable lens cam, with a stunning style. I personally prefer a leica X1, but it lacks a lot digi stuff, and X2 has a horrible hunch back for evf!!!! So even this is nicer with its inner feature... Just enjoy or run away, don't make yourselves upset about it...

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: Its a great camera. It ONLY lacks a true OVF as in pentax K-3.
End of the day its a DSLR then why electric VF ????? Apart from that its a perfect... But perfection is not anything being "apart" from a single elementh right ? ;)

I got the point (Kind of) any mirrorless range finder cam has no OVF coz there is no mirror !!! (Well they have a bigger screen that EVF on the back but anyway :) there it is ; the 2nd one!)
But why, I have to carry something huge (has a mirror inside) and still has no OVF ? would it getting any bigger by the ovf ? Seriously ??

On 1991 Nikon-Kodak hack was first DSLR in space article (67 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just a Photographer: Pretty advanced for that time!

But ironically the Shuttle doesn't fly anymore, Kodak went broke and Nikon is to follow if they don't start innovating soon....

Why would Nikon break? They can add D800 sensor to D5 body... And D5s can be with D800E sensor...

nothin' to be worried ;)

( well surely any p&s cam will disappear smaller than 1" sensor or worse than F.2.8 aperture.. And no life for any mirror less system which has smaller than micro 43 or focusing in minute the technology aka, eos m ;) )
