In reply to:

Revenant: So, people abandoned the dedicated camera for the more convenient and portable smartphone. And now they are expected to buy accessories that make their smartphone more similar to the camera they stopped using. Is there some kind of irony in this, or is it just me?

No, there's some kind of stupidity

In reply to:

Sitting Duck Photos: The criticisms leveled at this camera aren't surprising and are retreads, offered up by people who deconstruct cameras instead of being people who snap pictures for enjoyment. So there's that.

KonstantinosK: In the specs it says its max format size is APSC/DX and lens mount Sony E (NEX). Hmmm...

I see the specs are corrected now.

Mister Joseph: Just some non-sense comparison: My 2014 sedan is $25,000 and my wife's 2015 SUV is $32,000.

I think it's most probable that she will sell you

On article Power Zoom: Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100/TZ100 Review (281 comments in total)
In reply to:

bobbarber: I think a lot of the complainers here don't get it.

It is a travel zoom. When you are in Hawaii waiting for your flight, and everything is stowed, and you need a picture of a small bird perched on the sign for a terminal, or a distant mountaintop behind the planes, you pull a camera like this out of your pocket. Ditto for riding the bus somewhere, or taking a tour of a city on somebody else's itinerary, not yours.

If I were limited to one camera and one lens, I would pick something like this. I liked travel zooms even when they were only small sensor. I still have the first one I ever bought. I mostly shoot in daylight. A lot of people would be surprised at what you come back with carrying something like this around all day in interesting places.

I've even sold photos taken with my old TZ-5

There's nothing like it in its class. Kudos to Pana.

Great but $1500? Gulp!

Before calling it a step backwards, it would be interesting to compare the D5 against the D4 or D4s. Sadly, though, the latter are missing from the studio scene tool.

Amazing offer. I've tried demos of many PP software (plug-ins or standalone) and the Nik collection was my favorite. I ended up getting rid of every other PP software in my computer (Topaz, On-one etc). Nik collection is great for its ease of use, it's intuitive, gives great results and blends seamlessly with Lightroom and Photoshop. Download for as long they are still around.

Huh?

KonstantinosK: Come on guys, what did you expect? It's got roughly the same size as the TZ5, which had the same zoom, but with a much bigger sensor. You can't have a bright lens with such a zoom and in this size. And you can't expect the IQ to be on par with APSC when it's much smaller than m4/3. It's a small pocket camera with a 1' sensor and a 10x zoom, there's nothing like it in the market. It's a marvel that they managed to put a 1" sensor and a EVF in a camera as big as the TZ5.

Why? It looks to me that it belongs to the TZ line. And why the naming is important anyway?

In reply to:

gizmowiz: All the photos seem dark and grainy. I don't see the 1" sensor being very effective at all. Heck my old TZ5 seems to do better than this supposedly advanced camera!

Hi. I've got the TZ-5 and it's a sweet little camera and I want to keep it for as long as it can live. But its IQ can't come close to what I see here especially as the ISO goes higher.

Kudos to Sony for inventing the 1" compact. First there was only one, now there are plenty from different manufacturers. Great.

KonstantinosK: Just had a look and I found the SD1 Merrill costs 1160€ body only.

1249AUD = 816€. Amazing price.
