  • Unfortunately not (don't do video). As someone else mentioned, the Oly XZ-2 is very similar to the Pentax MX-1, they seem to come with almost identical lenses… One of my work colleagues just ...
  • http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/pentax-mx-1/8 Compare for yourself. All HX cameras are far below the MX-1 when it comes to IQ (on the above mentioned link dial in any of the HX cameras, ...
  • Well, I am one of those custmers who took this personally. I have been using a very old version of Bridge and PSE and decided to upgrade a couple of months ago. Lightroom was the most appealing...

  • Replied in Well spotted!
    Thanx for the geographical confirmation (patting myself on my shoulder… ;-) )! Concerning the Canon pictures, I find that they are lacking dynamic range (i.e. colour) knowing what the place looks ...
  • Replied in Q in Venice
    Venice is heaven for a photographer! Here are some I took with mx old Pentax K10D: http://sternbild.zenfolio.com/p186345598 I think Steephill took these pics on the islands of Murano (the blue ...
  • @KAllen: You have been cited online in the renowned German magazine "Spiegel"! Congrats! The only change: "Spiegel" decided to forego the...

  • @everlast66:
    its not about sensor size, its about image quality. as i have stated above, a handfull of cameras less than half the price do an *almost* equal job ( pentax mx1 and the oly zx which...

  • Roughly EUR 260/GBP 220 will buy you the Pentax MX-1. Corner-2-corner sharpness is better than on the RX and IQ is hardly distinguishable (o.k. if you are a pixel peeper you will notice some very...

  • FW of the MX-1 is still in Ver. 1.0 (hold the menu button when turning on the MX-1 and you will see). I've already submitted some FW-wishes to Ricoh and have received a friendly answer that they ...
  • http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-cybershot-dsc-rx100/14 Choose the MX-1 as compare-to camera and off you go. I prefer the MX-1 as it is MUCH sharper than the Sony. Its the lens that sets the ...
  • Ooops, I expected more... Just studio-compared it to the Pentax MX-1 (costs a fraction of the Sony). Sure, the Sony is slightly better in the larger part of images (esp. high ISO). But the...

  • @Just a Photographer :
    I think you are mixing things up... We all don't mind subscribing to *services* (phone, cable tv, newspapers...); but PS isn't a service. Its a stand-alone piece of software...

  • Its the bad example that Adobe and the like set (Office 365 for iPad: EUR 100,-/year!); that is what we are complaining about. If require a hammer to hammer a nail into a wall, I will buy the...

  • The rip-offs at Adobe made me move to DXO last year. Was looking for decent and professional software for my RAW workflow (Apple is currently doing nothing ...), and Adobe's products were No. 1 on...

  • Hold the menu button at start-up. Up comes a black screen with "ver. 1.00" Thus I believe the MX-1 is firmware upgradeable. Waiting for it (tungsten AWB).
  • jackf00:
    you can do a side-by-side comparison of images taken with the original RX 100 and the Pentax MX-1 on this site (under "full reviews" -> samples). The sensor sizes may differ, but so do...

  • Really?

    "The lens is the big selling point of the RX100 III. With a maximum aperture of F1.8-2.8 and a focal range of 24-70mm equiv, you won't find anything as impressive on a compact...
