G1Houston: More smaller, lighter, relatively inexpensive, fast-enough wide angle prime please. There is a good reason why many of us do not want to own a FF camera ...

I have that (in the Hassleblad incarnation) for that reason.

skanter: "Relatively small"? Compared to what?

The whole point of APS-C mirrorless is small and light. This lens is bigger and heavier than my a6300. No thanks.

This, it's size is ridiclous.

I have an A6000 because I can use a pancake and small lenses on it and keep it small, this is lunacy. The UI of the camera is too small and finicky to use it to supplant a dSLR.

I am sure it can produce superb images but so can my A99

matt_j: I highly recommend RAW Therapee :)

I thought that only allowed editing of RAW files ? Which doesn't solve the dB issue which was one of the reasons I moved to LR in the first place all those years ago with V 3. How does one effectively search>10,000 photos over more than a decade for that photo of a sunset you sort of remember from 8 years ago.. and yes, I do it :)

I use it for it's impressive library services, what can we move to ? I have asked Affinity folk and they say they are working on something .. but whatever it is, it seems to be taking a loooong time.

I don't use PS at all and have no interest in it, LR was my goto, so needing to buy a subscription for PS bundled with LR annoyed hell out of me and they have recently increased the price significantly here in Australia.

>and your limo driver's name is Gaston

Ok, poodle is pink but my limo drivers' name is Ruprect... that's me out I guess :(

Seems like a great camera if you have a lot of light and need the range, it doesn't fit in pocket (like the RX100), and the small sensor necessitates compromises with lower light.

My Sony FF A99 with a 70/200 was struggling at f2.8 the other day with fast moving action in a forest @ 200mm, (I run in manual mode f2.8 or f4, 1/250 and let auto iso do the work) I imagine the new RX10 with be either a blurry mess, or a noisy mess ? but then at 600mm, I can't do anything with my A99 :)

I am sticking to my A99 and my camera phone for portability until then, my long neglected A6000 sits on the shelf :(

ShatteredSky: Hmmm, still not what I wish for, but still the best overall tough camera out there. Maybe time to upgrade the TG-1 ... (and since I got many very good UW images [for my uses] with it).
But why can't the TCON-01 be used at all zoom settings. They should have made it that bigger then. As it is it's too expensive, to only use it at the long end.

I also have the TG-1 but don't use it that often, (the SD card slot won't allow removal of the card for some reason ) at the price they want for the TG-5, no way am I upgrading.

I wondered why there was a sale on the TG-4 last month !

Camera review here

Looks promising. Supports DNG as well, far as I know.

Looking forward to a camera review of the Z5, noise with that many MP vs sensor size might be a problem ? Raw available ?

marc petzold: What keeps me away from LT for ages: That damn catalogue everything thing, and then it's way sluggish from operation & behaviour, Adobe should really speed things up.

Cataloguing is a feature I prefer and like.

This is why I will never be a photographer, I don't take photos like this.

dlkeller: B&H doesn't list VC as one of the features in the Sony version. If this is true Sony A mount users are being screwed again. Hope it isn't true as it looks like a lens I would buy--but not if VC is left of my version.

"B&H doesn't list VC as one of the features in the Sony version."

Good, most if the A mounts have it built in. I will wait and see if it's okay, I was looking at the Sony 70-400G II. I hope it's better than the Sigma 50-500 I had on my Nikon D300

On article Canon EOS M hands-on preview (566 comments in total)
In reply to:

57even: Since the market is already well represented with existing products from other makers, it is not surprising that the reaction to this camera is a bit lukewarm as it misses out a lot of things (viewfinder, flash, accessory port) that the others have.

I guess all of these could be addressed in future models. However whereas Nikon were pretty clear about the technical direction on launch, Canon are not.

Almost certainly means future versions will compete with the Rebel line or even replace it, hence they don't want to play their hand too early for fear of damaging sales.

However it does rather imply that Nikon will have to think seriously about a larger sensor MILC camera, even it's based on the F mount.

That doesn't tmake any sense ? If you're not going to mount your exisiting lenses than the World is your Oyster in terms of choice eg NEX7 etc etc Surely you would not buy it just because it says Canon ?

In reply to:

rocklobster: What are you guys whinging about? - this is about as small as you are going to get in a camera with a sensor of this quality.

NO there isnt a built in flash and NO there is no EVF but I have owned an E-MP1 for a while and these are a non-issue to me as the accessory port is the best solution for these items as I use them infrequently.

But, if I am allowed one complaint it may be directed at almost all mirrorless cameras is that contrast focus AF does not work well in poor light especially at medium to long distaces where the focus assist lamp is ineffective.


What about phase detection focus modes on NEX 5R and NEX6 Canon EOS M etc ?

Gorgeous, one small criticism if I may, I think it needs more leading space to move into, rather than have it centred but that's just my amateur eye.

In reply to:

Ross Murphy: I check to make sure my files have made it safely over before formatting my card, but in general this is pretty much the same thing I do and recommend to fellow photogs, I do a rename later with TIFF or JPG.

Edit, I do have a database for each year, otherwise it would get very large.

Large, it's supposed to be, it's a DBMS referencing the photos, so it's actually a comparatively tiny file. Having seperate catalogues is a poor decision I think. Just tag 2012 with 2012 photo's, then if all you want to see is 2012, search for the tag 2012 and they will all be displayed... If you have tagged every photo you took of a flower with flower, then you can display them all by searching for that tag, or 2012 and flower or... the cataloguing feature is one of the huge strengths of LR.
