Jacques Cornell: Which one's the "big beast"?
http://j.mp/1SiE6FL#sthash.TwuwdnLd.dpuf

DPR's really doing a disservice with this hyperbole. The GX8 is still smaller and lighter than just about any DSLR, about the same size as an E-M1 or A7II, and almost exactly the same size as my petite Contax G2 rangefinder while being 100g lighter.

BigOne: "Taking a look at the side of the camera you'll find a plethora of ports"

Four is NOT "plethora". Even if you REALLY love to use that word.

Plethora, plethora, plethora!

If the GX8 is a "Big Beast", this thing must be a "Humongous Beast".

You must be the kid who hasn't yet learned that it's not normal to find half-naked women in industrial stairwells.

On article Light L16 packs 16 cameras into a single portable body (393 comments in total)
In reply to:

Shiranai: I read comments here like "Looks promising", "Got potential" and "Awesomeness"...
Really?
Is that from real photographers or from people who think the iPhone is a professional camera?

Even 16 smartphone lenses can not substitute a real DSLR with real ANALOG OPTICS. Neither for bokeh nor for low-light.
Never ever EVER...
Period.

Shiranai,
I'm a pro photog, and I am skeptical that this really will be able to deliver low-noise images in low light, but it doesn't hurt to keep an open mind. Today's tech does things we'd have thought impossible 10 years ago. Seems premature to hyperventilate over this announcement.
FWIW, while it's true that some pros rely on impressive-looking gear to allay clients' doubts, many, including me, are free to use whatever gear they want. The choice is influenced by the kind of work you do and the kind of clients you have. I shoot event work for corporate clients, and when I switched from FF to MFT, nobody raised an eyebrow. They hire me for results.

In reply to:

RichRMA: The "ad" for it looks like the crap Apple puts out with self-satisfied 20-somethings oowing and awwing over a new, soon to be discarded toy.

A better ad would have grumpy dissatisfied fossils sneering at a newfangled doohickey instead. It would come from a company called Toxpharm Associated Industries Conglomerate Holdings, Ltd. And, the product would be the Multicam Retroscopic Imager Viztamina16-1.a "Cap'n Crunch". I'll take three!

biza43,

Take a deep breath. The negative is in "by NO reasonable measure". IOW, b craw is saying that DSLRs are NOT the only tools used...

Oh god, never mind.

"I won't believe the fz1000 is better, unless I could shoot the same subjects with both cameras side by side under the same lighting"

DPR has already done that.

maxnimo: Perhaps 8K screens will finally make ink prints obsolete - like what the digital camera did to chemical film processing.

The analogy makes no sense at all. You only need one horse and one washboard.

4 screens in my living room plus 2 in the hallway, 4 in my office, one in my bedroom and one in the kitchen = $12,000.
12 prints @ $45 = $540.

Plus, there's the cost of wiring and powering all those screens, and replacing them every 5-10 years when the backlights burnout.

Not until screens are as cheap as prints.

Which part is wrong? Half the price? Better IQ? I'll take IQ over superficial impressions of "build quality" any day.

aris14: Pana's FZ 1000 is miles ahead than competition.
Btw... In compact cams scene comparison test it's clear for everyone to see the know how of manufacturers to produce the highest level of matching their lenses and sensors capabilities as well and their tricks and efforts to produce a pleasant result for their brand victims customers even if they have nothing essential to offer, just for filling up the gap of their line up. Good news for Sony here as, to my opinion, follows a descent path compared to Canicon's proposals. But news for Sony is that RX 10 II is silly overpriced, too silly...

The FZ1000 does seem to offer better IQ - roughly same noise, but better resolution.

NX1 really isn't in the same category.

On article Leica Q In-depth Review (1115 comments in total)
In reply to:

40daystogo: I always use the studio scenes by comparing the detail of the etching - which shows the line drawing of the family in front of the painting easel. As a Sony A6000 user (and former Leica film-camera user), I like the fact that the cheaper A6000 seems well matched to the output of the Leica Q. I admit that the film and digital Leica's I purchased in the past were acquired, not merely for image quality, but for the cache of using a Leica - but from an IQ standpoint, I get just as good elsewhere, for much less money.

cache |kaSH| - an auxiliary memory from which high-speed retrieval is possible.

cachet |kaˈSHā| - the state of being respected or admired; prestige
