On CP+ 2014: Hands-on with Sony a6000 article (102 comments in total)

I kinda feel bad; Why did I buy E-PM1 + Sigma 30mm+ 40-150mm for 400€, just autmn.

This gray version looks very cool. Better specs than Micro43... etc etc. Wondering about its video, would be getting warm as previous NEX cams ?

On CP+ 2014: Canon stand report article (59 comments in total)

G 1 x II would be a great underwater cam. You got all you need lenses on your APS-C camera.

But, would it work that good ? Personally, my 1/2.3 sensored recyled window glass lensed sony cam takes underwater videos far better than my 1/1.7 sensored Razor sharp M.Zuiko lensed XZ-1 olympus.

Well image quality is better than Sony. But thast small sony was relatively easier to use. Wondering this guy.

In reply to:

Marty4650: People buy fixed focal length fixed lens compacts for simplicity and convenience. There is nothing simple or convenient about hauling around tele-converters because you really wanted an ILC or a zoom lens.

An X100s variant with a zoom lens would have made much more sense. And if it had a modest zoom range.... like 1.5X or 2.0X, then it could still be pretty small.

If canon would achieve fast focusing (As fast as Micro43 let´s say) clear shots at hand held 1/4 seconds or even slower...

That would be a very big and strong nail to fuji,leica,nikon,ricoh songle lens/aps-c sensor cam.s coffin.

Ben O Connor: In my opinion;

- If you pay for a 1" sensor P&S, thanks to its optics. it is WASTE OF MONEY (excluding Sony Superzoom)
- If you pay for a 1" sensor ILC cam, it is WASTE OF MORE MONEY.
- If you pay for a APS-C sensor with stabile optics it is WASTE OF RESOURCES (that might exclude new canon G 1 X II, I don´t know yet!)
- If you pay for a full frame sensor camera, and your model is a mirrorless one, with stabile optics or inter-changable lens you* are A FILTY RICH DUDE !

And damn !! It would be good to have smilar money and taste as you have.

(*) You are not a pro, are you?
Pro; Person, who earns money from his photographic work.

As you see, a WASTE OF RESOURCES camera , is trying to excuse from its buyes by releasing converters.

Dude, why did not you buy its better version even more affordable ? (The fuji´s interchagable lens family) Don´t try to give me a speach of "But its pocketable and .... come on dude ;) someone put this beautifull lens in to a single lens jail, and you paid for it!!

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4: a quick summary article (471 comments in total)

Its too sophisticated "video shooting digital camera" for average consumer.

I wonder does Panasonic or Blackmagic or Sigma or Olympus.... Or some other brand considering producing something like Sony vg-10... But its micro43 version.

John Miles: What a breath of fresh air. I was being retroed to death.

Indeed! However there are good members of retro (pen e-p5 or OMD E-M10)... many of them boringly copy of retro...even worse, copying leica outlooks.

Enough of grandpa's cam ! I want new design !!!!

Direct link | Posted on Feb 10, 2014 at 08:58 UTC

SENSATIONAL AMAZING DESIGN. If there would be additional tri-pod mounted phone/smart device would fit back of the cam as screen/controls... THAT CAM BECOMES A SELLING HERO.

I don't know you, I would buy one if my Lumia 1520 would fit.

In reply to:

Alphoid: I wish the Nokia phones would dual-boot Android and Windows Phone. I'd totally buy one of these models if I wasn't taking a risk on Windows but had a choice.

Alternatively, I wish some Android manufacturer would release a reasonable competitor.

It's funny. It seems like Nokia is hampered by Windows (since otherwise, almost all photographers would buy Nokia), and Windows is hampered by Nokia (who doesn't make the best hardware otherwise). If Microsoft had a strategy of choice on all handsets, it would work better for all involved.

Heck, if I got an Android+Windows phone, I'd at least try Windows. If Windows was better (and I've never used it, so aside from knowing how badly Windows sucks elsewhere, I have no idea), I'd switch to Windows.

Fotor is a great and free app. Not a LR alternative maybe, but does many shinny/baby stuff as instagram does.
