  • That Sony grip is actually a very bad design.
    Maximum leverage is obtained the higher up you are on the object, and it stops halfway up. Pulling on the bottom only makes it tilt in the direction...

  • Replied in A real pain...
    Are ALL of the manufacturer's sensors designed that way? Because if you scrap the microlenses, you lose a lot of light.  That's not good! Partially defeats the purpose of wanting higher sensitivity ...
  • I've been eager for the prices to come down on these action cameras...
    the gopro prices are just obscene.

    But these buggers (manufacturers) just keep on coming out with more bells and whistles...

  • thanks guys. $15 for an aftermarket (third-party) rubber grip or $25 for a wooden one, isn't bad at all. it certainly beats what the manufacturers would charge if it were their own branding. ...

  • Replied in A real pain...
    the goal should not be to do away with the microlens array, but the color filter layer that is added/bonded/printed on top of them.
  • I've stopped being disappointed at this having no handle/grip.
    I just go to the dollar store, buy some rubber anti-skid pads you put under couches, and cut it to size. you can stack them to get...

  • Nope, not talking about those other models.
    talking more about this one in particular.

  • I guess this comparison would be pointless, if you had included the new Nikon models in the evals.

  • it's the sensor, not the processor, I would say.
    processor is just speed, and it's nothing without the firmware.
    ...and the wonderful quality Nikon glass.

  • @ardenclark56,
    if you are complaining about lens prices,
    your best option might be a used camera.
    I've seen some used FF cameras going for pretty cheap these days,
    you can keep your eyes peeled...

  • Really?
    It is called GX7 in Japan, but replaces an older GX7 here... I thought up until now there was a lot of retardation in nomenclature, but this sets a new standard in stupidity.
    They could...
