On Eye-Fi Mobi Wi-Fi SD card review article (99 comments in total)
In reply to:

Artistico: Yes, this is the must-have thing for a camera since there is no way I'll be able to cope if I can't share all my unadjusted images almost instantly on Twitter, Facebook and Flickr - my friends would love their timelines filling up with that. Preferably they should be up there just as I trigger the shutter - no, even before I take the picture would be ideal so I could look it up there myself before bringing out my camera to see if a picture was worth taking. Someone should invent a time machine Eye-Fi card so I could do that.

Not to mention it is too much hard work actually taking the SD card out of my camera and inserting it in the card slot on my computer to import my photos that way. I mean: who does that anymore? I read a review of an Eye-Fi card and it says you can "get rid of a ton of messy cables". Who doesn't want to get rid of literally a ton of messy cables, right?

That is what happens when someone reads a post and gives it a millisecond of thought...about all internet chat/discussion comments are usually worth

BobT3218: I was keen till I read Richard Butler's First Impressions where he says, "...once I've made the decision to carry something that isn't pocketable, I want a step up in image quality to make up for that inconvenience."
Nothing truer has ever been said. I didn't bother reading on. Despite being unashamedly an Olympus fan boy, I no longer have any interest in this camera.

I also agree with Richard. I have owned ther Canon S100 and Oly XZ-1....dropped them like a bad habit. The only compromise I will make is using an RX100....because of the sensor.

On Panasonic launches Lumix DMC-XS3 slimline zoom compact article (37 comments in total)

Makes my happy I paid the extra bucks ($600) and bought a Sony RX100. Fits in my pocket and takes amazing pictures (IMHO, best compact camera available). If I only have one chance in a lifetime at an amazing pic, I want the best camera money can buy...the panny is cute but a toy, a quite capable toy but why compromise?

Henry M. Hertz: well i don´t see olympus making progess in image quality.

too much of the same cameras.
slower product cycles and more innovations is what pana and oly need... or i don´t see a big future for m43.

i sold my E-PL1 and bought a sony RX100 as always with me camera.
it fits into my shirt pocket and delivers great images.
and for a "always with me camera" i don´t need interchangeable lenses.
overall size is way more important for me.

I own an RX100 and an OM-D...while I love the RX100, in no way is it a replacement for the OM-D, which generates better pictures IMHO. Was the E-PL1 that bad?

On Just Posted: Update to Sony RX100 II Samples Gallery article (86 comments in total)

Absolutely love my RX100 and it's my go to small camera (the OM-D being my fav larger camera). Am curious to see a comparison for shots taken with the new vs. Original ......but am hardly disappointed with the RX100 now so doubt there is much they have done to warrant an upgrade or buying the new cam at a premium vs the RX100 at a discount. Oh and the slightly larger size/tilt rear LCD has no appeal to me.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....next! Canon fumbles again with their supposed upgrade. Nice camera but nothing new. I strongly assume I'd be able to pick it up in a couple of months (if I was interested) at a significant discount as they roll out their next "latest and greatest".

bobbarber: I don't get wifi in this class of camera, unless you also give it a keyboard. Just don't get it. In phones, sure.

RB,

No, I would not seek out a camera because of the wifi feature...I'd still go with the GF3 or GF5

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 preview (99 comments in total)

YAWN. At the going price for the GF3/GF5, buying this camera makes absolutely no sense....great camera but not enough of a "step up" to warrant the very significant differece in price. Panasonic is amazing in the way they are late on delivery of new products and then quickly canabalize sales by having minor upgrades for the new models and significant discounting (dirt cheap) for the 6-9 month old model!

Thank you Panny....you make cameras affordable by your dysfunction!

On Olympus announces Stylus XZ-10 enthusiast compact article (198 comments in total)
In reply to:

Cy Cheze: A back-lit 1/2.3" sensor, in conjunction with a F1.8 - F2.7 aperture range, truly will offer better image and low-light results than the usual P&S camera. A $350 price is also a lot below the $650 wants for the RX100, or the circa $450 prices of various 1/1.7" sensor alternatives, which are also heavier or larger cameras.

Thus, the XZ-10 really does fill a particular niche in between other competitors, in terms of performance or price. The real question is whether people happy with phone cameras will bother to buy a P&S that performs a little better, though not enough for the usual Facebook viewer to notice. People who shop for a camera that does what a phone does not might not think in terms of aperture at all, but seek something with longer zoom or water resistance.

Question #2 is whether sales of the XZ-10 will improve Oly's overall sales volume, or simply cannibalize a share that would otherwise consist of XZ-2, Tough, or PEN cameras.

The RX100 is $579 in the states....it is getting cheaper...and even at $650...it blows away the other small P+S.

In reply to:

Maverick_: I have the Samsung Galaxy Note II with a 5.5" screen and I love this phone. No problem with the phone fitting in either pants or jacket pockets. My previous phone was a 4.7" which now looks diminutive in comparison.

The 5.5" is a perfect size and with quad-core and super amoled screen running on 4G-LTE it's insanely fast and responsive. Also the battery capacity is simply amazing. iPhone users lower their heads in shame when they see my phone and promise to repent from their blind obedience to Apple's marketing sham and dated 6-year old iOS.

Don't knock these phones until you have lived with them. Word's can't do justice to their awesomeness.

The Note? Fantastic phone but too big for me day-to-day. Myself? I'm loving the Galaxy S3....and keep an iPad mini with me when I want a bigger screen, using the S3 as a hotspot.

In reply to:

topstuff: The slow mode is very cool.

There is a video on YouTube of the launch in the UK and the guy demonstrates it. One press of the shutter and the camera takes loads of pictures at once. It then replays them in animation and you pick the one you want. Perfect for taking pictures of kids or family and making sure everyone has eyes open !

My Sony HX200V (came out 1 year ago) does that....good feature for kids or sports

Osvaldo Medina: I own a X10 and I am happy with it! Very.

Orbs? a few times with some night shots. It´s a problem? No, not for me. When they are present they usually appear only with low iso (100-200).

Yea...there is a plan.....reduce the potential for orbs by rasing the ISO! ROFLMAO! New sensor? cx10 owners should quickly get in line for the replacement before the x11 comes out!

JonSr: GF3 was a cursed crippled miserable creature. I couldn't get rid of it fast enough. Panny is showing their determination to produce crapware to lure unsuspecting buyers a junk they have to replace as soon as they purchased this. Total Assory of a Product representing true nature of the management. Shame on you.

Loved my GF1 (sold it), love my G3 and my GF3......let me guess, your wife is ugly but you love her. Sorry, definitely not PC but used as an example to point out that beauty is in the eye of the beholder (thank gawd or my wife would never had married me...LOL)
