Great stuff. Some clever, some funny, some artistic.I liked them all.
Have to agree, the price is too high, despite being gorgeous.I paid just £159 for my Nexus4. May just have to settle for a 5:-(
Looks like you guys at DPR have a tough life!
However, a really nice set of images.
Oh I wish these were from the LX100!
I wasn't expecting these to be that good!
Looks like Canon have fitted an excellent lens on the G7X
On this showing, this camera will put some serious pressure on the LX100, whose initial samples quite frankly, are very poor.
The Squire: There's some strong NR or DR processing going on in files and high and low ISO that is killing the detail. The pink haired chap, at ISO 3200 looks very clean at normal viewing, but pixel peeping shows a lot of detail washed away by the NR- Fine for some uses, but I like a bit of detail and luma noise 'texture' personally. WHat really bugs me is how the JPG engine is rendering fine detail like grass, and low contrast area - complete mush. Results look like a 1/2.3" compact :( Hoping the RAW files are much better! Pre-order currently at risk!
There is a lot of worrying mush going on, but it is not consistent across the whole image.
Surely Panasonic's JPG engine can't be this bad. It was OK?
My pre-order, also at risk now!
Not sure what is going on here?
The in-focus hair is very sharp. Impressive for iso 1600, but the out of focus hair is very mushy.
Looks like confused selective sharpening or maybe JPG compression artefacts.
But overall, bodes well for indoor photography without flash.
Nikon are you bonkers! Sony have left the door open with the A7 series.
Small size yes, but mediocre focusing speed, slow processing, noisy shutters and a very limited lens line up.
Don't kid us you don't know what's what. You can fix all these problems.
Your Nikon 1 series has all the right features. Just scale it up for full frame.
I absolutely hate pop-up flashes!
I don't care how good or how bad the camera is, or even what colour they are, I just hate'em.
Well I kinda like it. The ultimate stealth camera.
Sony, now that you decided not to fit the EVF why didn't you give us a larger bright screen?
Why are we stuck at 3 inch LCD's?
My smart phone has a 4.8inch screen. It is bright and high-resolution.
Not just you Sony, but all you camera manufacturers, take a dip into the phone world and give us some decent LCD's.
Flashback: Still no 4K from Sony?
Could it actually be possible that their new Bionz X processor, doesn't support 4K.
Any road, Panasonic must be smiling...
Greetings from Alpha Centauri...
The A7s can't manage 4k internally due to excessive heat build up.
The Panasonic FZ1000 manages 4k fine, albeit in a large body. However, this is 'cheap' plastic not metal and plastic is not an efficient heat radiator.
My feeling is that Panasonic's processor chip is maybe one generation ahead of Sony. Using a lot less power to handle the heavy 4k bit stream.
If however, Sony are deliberately holding back 4k for the A6001 and RX100M4, then this is purely marketing.
Still no 4K from Sony?
I recently cleared my loft of all my old darkroom equipment. Brought back some fond memories.
Some of it went to a Jumble Sale, the rest dumped. I did keep the enlarger lens though. Never use it, but a lovely piece of glass made by Hoya.
Thanks Kodak. Just hang in there...
Hey Leica, have a chat with the Panasonic boffins, and get some of that GH4 video magic into the T2.
It's Leica glass stupid....
I remember, everybody rubbishing the earlier X1, but boy did it produce some beautiful images.
D710 12mp 4K
Probably just around the corner!
My feeling is the M3 will have a very short life, as good as it is.
With the Panasonic FZ1000 sporting 4k and the imminent LX8 with 4k, Sony will have to reply with a M4 4k, to compete.
If you are tempted by this review (as I am), I would wait a little longer(July16).
'The 55mm F1.8 is quite sharp and also enjoyable to use'
It's actually from the A7 review, 'Handling and shooting Experience' page
It made me smile when I read that. Talk about damned with faint praise!
harry cannoli: I have to admit I'm a little bummed that the LX7 failed to stand out in any meaningful way, despite the fact that I'm a hardcore DSLR shooter who adores this little camera. Sheesh, I am a fanboy.
I suppose the big sensor in the Sony means so much more than the beautiful, super-fast, pin sharp lens in the LX7?
The lens makes the magic, the sensor records the magic made by the lens. The Sony sensor does an absolutely fantastic job of recording images created by it's plain vanilla lens. Of course the magic created by the lens is a personal judgement, but that Panny lens stands out, heads and shoulders above the pack. How can I see this and the respected, highly competent reviewers barely acknowledge the outstanding flavor of that Panny lens?
Oh, never mind. I'm a fanboy :(
Thank you Richard for getting this done. Good job.
Maybe the RX100 is just another case of the 'The Emperor's New Clothes'
Have to agree with you Harry. I had the RX100, great video but was never happy with the still images. I eventually sold it. Now I have the LX7.
Much, much happier with these new images. There is something special going on in that Leica lens...
