This is exactly the kind of subject I wonder about and about which I love to read an article. Thanks Richard!

Sergey Borachev: The FujI A3 is so much better for just $50 more! It has larger lenses and no 4K, but seems better in every other way, including 24 MP and larger sensor, natural JPEG colour, superior IQ, much longer battery life, solid build, twin control dials, video with exposure control, built in camera grip, much better flash sync speed and hot shoe.

For the targeted buyers, the natural JPEG colour should be very important. And for any of those casual shooters who do dabble in RAW and find its XTRAN sensor tough, there's the cheaper X10 with its Bayer sensor. Unfortunately DPR do not review these really interesting Fuji compacts.

X-A3 has MUCH better IQ. So does the A6000. But both have problems focussing in low light. So what's the use? I assume the GX850 is as good as Panasonic gets: class leading. I prefer a sharp picture to none at all....

Sir Reginald: Does anyone know why Panasonic binned the GM5? I've had one for 2+ years and it's excellent.

Tiny screen & tiny viewfinder, thx a lot but no

telefunk: Same as the GX85 without the built-in IS. So why the faint praise?

Same result...

On article Nine tips to help you win at photography competitions (100 comments in total)

In order to gain some visibility in the world of photography, I regularly enter the better competitions. However your first point "understanding the briefing" which I know all to well from my job, is the hardest part.
Often-times I have seen winning results that have absolutely 0% to do with how I understood the briefing. Indeed, the winning image would be something I would have deleted immediately.
So it remains a guessing - and second guessing - game...

In reply to:

Nikonandmore: The LX100 is by far the best camera of its kind. But the current sensor in it is not game anymore these days, just makes no sense. They should have a sensor in the league of the old Samsung NX and then, rule the enthusiast compact camera segment. An old generation 12MP sensor in a compact camera is laughable. Manufactures need a wake-up call that the small cameras market is dying against cell phones and they need to give EXTRA VALUE and a justification for people to go buy an extra gear just to take photos. 12MP sensors and higher are now found on just about ALL phones in the world and people don't go buy ANOTHER 12MP camera just because it has a larger M43 sensor inside and a 2x or 3x zoom. If the LX200 is to be successful, need to be with a major update: sensor+lens+for factor. But.. this is fantasy..if it gets 16/20MP + new lens will be a miracle & once again the point&shoot market will continue its slide. A few more years all these small cameras will be like camcorders.. all gone!

I bought it in Europe

Abdallah II: the best i have seen yet in small cameras are the LX100s, 12mp M43 has lower noise despite its age, gives you close to 24mm in 4k shooting, has a viewfinder, no heat issue in 4k, long battery life, more control/function buttons and solid build...wish it was smaller

FYI: This camera has the same sensor as the LX7 and a 19mm lens

Mike FL: Will Panasonic make a TRUE LX7/5/... successor?

LX line had ability to use UWA and Tele add-on via tube mounted on the body, also LX7 is true 24mm - muti ration aspect sensor.

LX100 is muti ration aspect sensor too + Tele add-on with tube mounted on the body, but no UWA possible.

This LX10 has none of above. In other words, the TRUE LX line is dead so far.

If I do not have RX100.M3, I will buy Nikon DL18-50, but Nikon is kind of forgetting the DLs, but busy with laying off people.

Would buy it if it was more like the LX100 size-wise and usablity wise. Of course IQ is much better than the LX100. Why must one always chose between IQ and ergonomics?

telefunk: Was hoping for an advanced camera in the LX5, Lx7, LX100 vein. This one seems more like a glorified P&S...
They should have called it TZ85

Huh? No multi-aspect. No mf af switch. No flash shoe, no grip, no filter thread or option for other focals... etc
Are you knowledgeable?

On article Opinion: Enthusiast compacts have finally come of age (469 comments in total)

Not as knowleable as you think.
P&S cameras can give excellent results in good light, as good as, or better than system cameras with kitzooms.
I suggest the following cameras for your mom: Canon Ixus 255, Lumix TZ7/8/10/25, Casio ZR700/800/850/3500.
I use these for1m prints in galleries.
Oh yes low light. Be careful with an APS-C Sony , Canon or Fuji!
Hope your mom will have soon have her perfect camera!

On article Hands on with Sony's a6300 and G Master lenses (289 comments in total)
In reply to:

Joe Belmont: I have had the a6000 for about a week -- bought it with kit lens for less than $500. An amazing, even astonishing camera. (I have owned Nikon and Canon and still love my Olympus OMD.) I think the a6300 is Sony's way of getting a more appropriate price for its a6000 technology. It is just the most amazing camera. I bought it for the moving subject tracking and low light performance. Bigger is better in viewfinders and maybe someone needs 4K video. So the a6300 at $1,000 is still a good deal. But the a6000 is - I've already said it - amazing and a true steal.

Have you tried it in low light? No focussing and pretty bad noise/smearing. Have you seriously tried shooting with it at night, or are you just happy about some purchase?

Automatic Focus is useful if it will focus

In reply to:

marc petzold: Way bad Panasonic. In fact, the 2016 TZ100 EVF is 1.16 MP equivalent, and 0.2", whileas my 2008 Lumix G1 EVF was already 1.44 MP equal, based on the same time-based technique, and also bigger viewfinder area.

Why do a 2016 Lumix with 1" sensor does have such a bad, crappy EVF?

That's not progress, even more, when one would consider also the even better EVF into the FZ-1000, and with longer Zoom reach, but also more bulk, from 2014.

"I'm old fashioned, don't like to compose pictures via LCD "LiveView", taking pictures at arm-length isn't my taste. :-) "

I'm even more old-fashioned and like composing the Rolleiflex way: looking down on a screen on my tummy.
