  • Sony has to be spastic! Now they drop the hotshoe just when the lens got fast enough for decent portraits and depth of field control (read high speed flash sync). Hello - hello? They can't even...

  • JP, thanks for the reply. With the limit to 1/2000 it looks like the flash sync is the same as the G1X-MKI. 1/2000 is fine by me as most flashes lose a lot of power after 1/1000 anyway. I did down...

  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Review preview

    GH4 and GX7 are in completely different class and cost category.

  • JP, are the flash specs on the G1x-II the same as the G1X-I? Namely; 1/250 sync with external Canon ttl flash, HSS to 1/4000, and 1/2000 sync with internal flash? Also, are the flash control...

  • I also find this an interesting camera at a "fair" price. I just wish there were some confirmed specifications out there. For example:
    Flash sync speeds (couldn't even find in the manual). Type of...

  • Sony needs to develop a decent shutter. 1/160 flash synch - really? I'll pass.

  • Joachim, Nice little review. My only issue is with the format comment. First the G6 like most m4/3 cameras offers 16:9 format as well as 3:2 and 4:3. Why 4:3? Actually makes a lot of sense when you ...

    The need for 300 DPI to get good prints is misleading if not a myth. 300 DPI may be the theoretical limit on certain print types but I have found 180 to 200 DPI to be a better gauge to determine...

    Samuel, You may be correct but I don't believe the shutter opening/operating speed is a true limitation on electronic sensors like it was on film. It may be more to do with the CMOS sensor verses...

  • Well it only took three years but I guess they listened - GX-7, GH3 (Grip), 12-35 f2.8 and 35-100 f2.8, 25 f1.4, promised fast 15mm.  Oly with new 12-40 f2.8, OM-D-E5 and M1, 12 f2.0.  Finally a ...

    Olympus PL-5, now on sale pricing, looks like a better speced serious camera at about $200 less. Equal sensor and better Jpeg engine, 1/250 flash synch, hot shoe, accessory finder available, in...

    Ditto, ditto, and ditto. An electronic shutter and a flash synch of 1/50 WTF were they thinking! My LX5 gives wonderful portraits with full sun backlight at 1/1000 full synch with my manual...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview

    Sony has done well with their camera body innovations much like Minolta did BUT, like Minolta Sony seems to be lagging in lens line-up development, especially in fast pro-lenses. Since they...

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    Great to see Pentax/Ricoh hanging in there with new innovations. Sadly the flash sync speed is going in the wrong direction for a top of the line camera. Sadly Ricoh/Pentax is following the same...
