  • Replied in Samsung
    If Sony gets too squirrelly with sensors then Samsung can fill in behind them for Fuji, Pentax, Nikon and Canon. First, we know they are #2 in camera sensors behind Sony with their ISOCELL line of ...
  • I don't think I would get the RX10 III given it's only $300 cheaper than the RX10 IV ($1700) with PDAF.  That takes you out to 600mm with slightly better IQ than the LX100 if more reach is what ...
  • Shoot with your FZ300 at ISO 6400 in the same lighting conditions. The difference between that and a G7 or a A7III is noise, not brightness. Make sure to shoot at f3.5 since that's the kit lens on ...
  • For under a grand I wouldn't go with the GH4 but something like the G7. Around $500 with a kit lens. The downside is that it's limited to ISO 6400 in video mode. It should do better than the RX100 ...
  • F mount compatibility is a key factor for many folks already invested in Nikon and the rumor is A7 sized which isn't the smallest nor lightest. These will be smaller than the D710 and D850. "Compac ...
  • That the Sony costs $3896 is not a rumor so a $4000 is "neither out to lunch" nor "overpriced". The difference between the 24MP and 45MP FF is one can be a 20MP APS-C and the other can't.  Whether ...
  • I think the point was poorly made. There are professional quality mowers, tools and cameras and it’s not just marketing. That most folks and even some pros don’t need that level of quality is ...
  • While CX was a marketing failure from a technical perspective the OSPDAF is still one of the best implementations equal to what Sony is doing today. Where Nikon may be behind is in processing ...
  • Only people with short posts say that you know...
  • The RX10 IV is weather sealed.
  • You set the budget and gear list in your post claiming that an N1 system is cheaper than a bridge camera solution: "Nowadays, I can get the following: A Nikon J5 body and a V2 body for $200-250 ...
  • You reserved $0 in your budget for lens rental.  You can't say X is cheaper than Y and then add in all this extra stuff. The 70-200 costs $27 for 1 day and $45 for a week + $25 shipping from ...
  • Soccer moms shoot sports played on dimly lit high school fields at 1/1000 to stop action. The Nikon 1 was a great daylight soccer mom/dad camera but lacked f2.8 (or even better...f1.8) native zooms ...
  • No, you don't. It isn't in your list of lenses purchased within your budget and even if you had the 70-300 f2.8 it would be huge.  I shoot regularly with the 50-150 f2.8 and the size of the body ...
  • You don’t have a long fast zoom lens option with the N1.  All of your options are a stop or more slower. And no, you cannot pack all those lenses in a smaller package than a RX10. I have all the N1 ...
  • The use cases for 1” bridge cameras is as tbcass wrote: zoom and convenience.  That and generally  less expensive than an equivalent ILC solution. The RX10 or FZ1000 is less expensive than ILC ...
  • I agree that for the telescope the Ravelli isn't a bad option.  You don't get the fine adjustments of an equatorial but the fluid head, if it doesn't suck, should work well enough.  Since it ...
  • Which is very niche and not as good a combination as a general purpose camera as a FZ1000 or RX10.  And your pricing is off.  The FZ1000 and RX10 options are cheaper new than what you suggest used ...
  • None of the 100mm lenses on the N1 are "pocketable" except for large jacket pockets.  While the V2 + 30-110 is smaller than the RX10 neither are what I would consider "pocketable" The RX100 and ...
  • The better comparison is with the FZ1000.  $598 at B&H at the moment. 9.1mm-146mm (25-400mm) f2.8-f4 new with warranty.  I dunno why you'd need two bodies. All of your pricing is used.  Comparing ...
