HX50/60 have exposure compensation wheel - this not?Maybe the screen is the reason?
EVF is nice - Panasonic TZ60/70 has a competitor.IMO Sony has better build in flash - Panasonic's design is terrible with flash fixed in the body.The question is what way the viefinder willl be activated - in two steps as in s RX100?
fuxicek: who needs so many megapixels?.... I used to have Fujifilm F70EXR, 10 mpix camera and there was some mode for shooting 5 mpix only and when I compared original 10mpix picture and the 5mpix resized to 10mpix, viewing it at 1600 percent magnification, the resized photo looked much better.. I never went back to 10 mpix :)
sorry for my (cz)english ;)
You know Fuji is "special" - they advertise 10 MP but in reality it is 5 MP when you comapare to competition.The profit was lower noise but noice/resolution is always compromoise and one can not be evaluated without other.
Dougbm_2: Maybe it is all the camera most of us really need. If only it was a 1inch sensor.
I am afraid that not in this size.Look to the Sony RX10 if you want 1" sensorand F2,8 lens but forget about pocket size.
For me the key point is AF speed and its exatitude.Other mirrorless are worse in this aspect.Even DSLR in this price range can be worse ff/bf issue can be problem still.Size? Very nice size considering the lensesn predicted to using with this body.Sensor size? Yes DX but also Nikon D7200 and Canon 7d are DX (Canon even smaller crop 1,6)Samsung sensor is the only DX-BSI on the market now.BSI means a lot it and is is prooved in compacts with small sensors.EVF comapring to DSLR optiucal is only functional thing.Personally I like EVF insteado of optical.EVF is always clean and simulates picturelook before shutter using.No mirror means less schock problems so longer shutter times can be used.And 4k movies - it is point where NX1 can compete with Panasonic GH* .As we can see if we take in the consideration most important for photographers aspects as AF speed, resolution, 4k movies it is technically the best camera on the market in this price range.
Chris62: Canon's development is to slow.Now young in photo market Samsung is ahead.The only reason to keep Canon is older system so more mature - many accesories atc. and of course if it is must have mirror presence.And this mirror probably is a STRONG brake for VERY POOR EOS-M SYSTEM.
But people like mirrorles cameras every year more and more....
Boydster first try on and compare - than write opinions.
NX1 produces 28 MP files 15 fps and Canon 20 MP only .so why you are comparing buffers?And in AF test in lens direction NX1 wins with sharp pictures number.Canon wins in perpendicular to lens axis direction but frankly speaking this is much easier for photgrapher than to face direction.OK NX1 had problem with focusing during zooming but I think it will be solved.

Mirrorless Cameras every year are better and better.At this moment for me the best cameras are Sony A7 II and Samsung NX1.But in the future....we will see.
onlooker: At ISO 1600 (4_BETASAMPLE_ISO1600_SAM_0170) NR seems very heavy handed.
Comparing color noise on sensors with 12 MP difference? Be serious.We can comapareFuji to Samsung if Fuji crreates 28 MP sensor but at this moment you have choise or better resolution or maybe less color noise it is up to you - what do you prefer.But as far I know less noise in Fuji is achieved rather RAW denoising method and resolution is worse than Bayer sensors present and ISO is lower than producer claims or lower than competition so you compare sometimes not ISO 3200 to 3200 but i.e. ISO 2600 to ISO 4000 and get wrong conclusions.Samples presented can not be any base for evaluation - comparisons can be done in the same conditions with the same method and the same class optics.
Fuji 16 MP? miles ahead? ha ha sensor 12MP less and miles ahead :) Sony? yes A7R is great in resolution but it is FF 36 MP not DX 28MP and probably with less efficient AF system.Maybe A7? HArd to judge now.A6000? I doubt but we will see in comparison tests.
Processing? Personal preferences - adjustable thiong nothing more so it can not be a base for camera evaluating.RAW - this is the real power of camera and processing is up to you.
These "changes" should be standard when camera occured on the market.
Good design but I wish 24 mm range maybe it will be in Stylus 2? Who knows?.
Too much denoising and... Denoising in RAW? Why?RAW is not RAW now...
SergeyMS: in my opinion, manual zoom is more convenient.
Yes and no.In movie mode smooth zooming is well seen and manual stepping zoom looks not nice on screen.FZ100 is still/movie equipment in one.
In full size we can see strange thing - smaller sesnor cameras Olympus/Panasonic deliver better quailty.
For me 2/3" sensor is optimal compromise for compact zoom camera.Beside sensor a camera is equipped with lens - some people forget it.Lens depends on sensor size so properties of camera with small and big sesnor differ each other.I like my Panasonic LX7 - the only issue for me is lack of bulid in EVF - optional is great but not convenient i rather impossible to use it when camera is transported in the pocket so detaching is the necessity and for optional flash too.X30 for me would be OK with this 2/3" sensor but optics should be better - wider (24-120 mm) and faster (F1,4-F2) - should be possible with such size - am I right?
I like also macro in my compact camera very often needed.
And one quwstion - what about quality? LX7 so far is perfect any issues.Fuji had some issues with older made in China cameras.
5100? Why? We know the Nikon 5100.The cameras names are horrible very often repeated.
Is it impossible to use unique names?
Another simple body.When the most advanced NX1?
In test scene we can see right down corner of the picture completely unsharp and on the left side is much better.It means poor quality.Right mounted lens on camera should give the same sharpness in all 4 corners.
nofumble: Supersize your sensor please
Very nice and modern camera.Two types of stabilisation, great viewfinder, Fast AF (- 4EV ?!!!) and I hope precise too, built in flash, rotated screen, good choise of lens and accesories, smalll size - all featrures required for many photgoraphers - not amateurs only.The only question is... Is it japan qulaity or chinesse as Fuji?
flektogon: Still the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 seems to be the best camera in this section.
I agree-> LX7 is the best.
