Where is the Samsung K Zoom ??? What else has a 24-240MM optical zoom (apart from the S4 zoom). Every camera buff knows optical zooming is better than digital. It won't be for a purist who is happy with fixed focal length, but great for someone who wants some versatility in the lens.
boothrp: Nice to read about pictures instead of cameras.
If you hadn't seen "panchromati" reversed, I bet it wouldn't have mattered that the picture was the wrong way round. Therefore, who cares ?

Cameras keep getting better, if only my budget could keep pace. I shall continue to enjoy my X100 though as there's always something better round the corner.
eyefuse: Interesting deal.
But did you notice that it looks like a Sony CarlZeiss design. New style?
And Henry's spelling is even worse.
Hopefully more than just "Key cameras from last year or two" will be tested. I suspect dpreview underestimates the interest people have in older cameras. EG, someone might want to compare how much better the Sigma DP1M is than the original DP1 series. And don't say "who cares about Sigma cameras?" they have their own special and justifiable niche.
These "poles" are very similar to the ones used in high quality expedition tents, usually made out of Easton aerospace grade tubing. It seems to be acknowledged in the tent world that flicking the poles out for them to extend and assemble themselves it sloppy practice and not good for the joints.It may look like a good trick, but high quality gear deserves careful use.
I think people underestimate how good these kind of lightweight solutions are. If you rig up a long cord loop to hang from the centre and tension with your foot on the ground and use self timer, it expands the low shutter speed capabilities more than you'd think.
qwertyasdf: What's the nickname for that BIG green lens?
I thought it was the Bigma ?
Best wait 48 hours to view the site, it appears to be totally hammered !
I really don't want to alter reality that much, in the same way as I dislike photoshop making models look even thinner.Which head do you want to stick on the body ?? Ugh !
So why doesn't my Olympus C770uz cut out after 30 minutes ??
gati: I have a X10, a Olympus xz1 and a Ricoh GRD4. I only shot jpg because I find it boring and timeconsuming to postprocess on computer. I have compared the photos from the three cameras and the X10 stand out as a clear winner. The JPGs from the Fuji X10 are magic, compared, especially to the Ricoh grd4, the diffrence is enorm to Fujis favor. The olypus xz1 is not bad but x10 is in a class of its own. (talking about jpgs straight out of the camera). The ricoh grd4 has a whole lot of ways to control the photos, sharpness, colors etc but in vain, the photos still looks preatty terrible compared to X10. I will keep the X10 because it gives the most pleasing colors on jpgs I have seen so far. The white orbs are ofcourse not a good thing but I have not seen it in any photo so far so for me its not a big deal.
I have the XZ1, If only the Fuji had an EVF.
I don't understand what this camera gives over say the olympus XZ-1, other than the ability to get dust on the sensor ?
A worthwhile video. I've often wondered about the law on such things, now it's clear to me.If an individual objects to being filmed/photographed, it's common courtesy under most circumstances to stop. Buildings don't have feelings (as far as I'm aware), so why worry about photographing them.There's enough surveillance on sensitive buildings to log people photographing the building, so when people are photographing for innocent reasons, no worries. If the building got bombed later, the CCTV footage of the photographer would show someone with no terrorist connections who has nothing to hide, as was the case with these 6 photographers.
