Bob A L: How did the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 get to be a compact camera? It's larger than several APSC DSLR's.

i guess they are comparing with equivalent lens on and not just body.

Geodesiq: The price is absurd. You can get similar IQ with the Lumix GX8 which is going for $650. on ebay. You get better IQ with the Sony a6500 @$1400., you get much better IQ with the Sony a7II @$1750.

"You wouldn't pay for the sensor but for the whole package."

Yes it makes sense to buy a Mercedes with scooter engine in it with the price of Mercedes. It does not make any difference if engine is useless if the "whole package" looks great.

Edymagno: Very bad things come twice. This is just one big step towards photography with total lack of credibility. Now, everytime we see a photo with a nice sky we'll have instant doubt or disbelief. Another very sad day.

"Is the goal forensic accuracy or to create something pleasing to look at?"

Yes.

ttran88: Sony, Canon and Nikon all have 2k+ bodies and people don't complain about the price. But when Olympus releases a 2k body hell breaks loose. Why? Is it the sensor size you're uncomfortable? The Olympus brand?

Check the sensor sizes of these cameras if you are not aware of the differences as to why those cameras might cost more. Also check their features too.
Hope this answers your question.

I never thought a regular dpr visitor could be so ignorant of differences but then hey, there are all kinds of people.

Why stop here you can quote medium format price too, if you are making others are selling expensive cameras too argument.

In reply to:

morepix: I wish Sony would totally re-think the user interface. Features and IQ are important, to be sure. But if the camera is unpleasant to use, I don't want one. And I'd really like to want one.

@Interestingness

It seems the definition of good menu for you guys is the one that you like.
Here is a thing sony doesn't give a damn to what you guys think is a good menu.

It is RX100 fifth iterations and I am sure they are doing good without your approval of their menus.

You are no one to decide whether menus are pros or con. Speak for yourself and feel free not to buy one.

petr marek: "Kinda crappy" is this Canon promotion video. I am sure that lower ISO on A7S with S-log would bring better image. My opinion, of course...

""Can the Sony A7S pull off high-quality video with the milky way in the background"?"

High quality means 4K for me so canon has no chance of it. Why do you have to disadvantage canon like that.

I raised this question because the issue is same in my opinion as comparing A7s 2 and A7r 2 one is low light and another is high res sensor. On pixel level A7s is better than A7r because of larger pixels but overall they are both almost equal.
Now I guess for videos things are different as it seems you guys suggesting that canon somehow getting more light than sony despite same sensor size.
I hope I made sense, dont know rules of video.

A7S shoots 4K and this does not. Obviously pixel size matters here but on the other hand canon does not shoot 4K. So saying that sony does not come close is only valid when low res canon is compared with high res sony. If someone asked canon for 4k then the matter would be different.

justmeMN: BTW, today Canon announced that they sold 1.5 million interchangeable lens cameras last quarter, and projected sales of 5.5 million interchangeable lens cameras this year.

Sam pretty sure canon does not think phones are threat. This is exactly how companies go out of business if history is any help.
Canon also thought mirrorless was not worth trying until m43 and sony showrd that its a market.

ttran88: Hey wait a minute I was told on DPR only a full frame camera can make winning photos.

Sony doesn't have lenses. Only mirrorless that has lenses is m43 but then sensor is micro sized.

Stompie: Im not convinced. Its a bit meh for me. Theres no doubt this is some pretty cool tech, but is it just that? Cool tech.
For me personally capturing images is an immersive experience. No not exclusively but mostly. If i go out to take a picture and I pack my camera bag and head out to a location, I have made the effort, done research and am excited about capturing that perfect image.
I will NEVER get that same immersion from the L16. Yes it will appeal to wealthy soccer moms who want to spend the money on a light, portable camera that could capture DSLR quality pics and yes maybe to photojournalists who are on location in the middle of a hot zone who can whip this out of their pocket instead of a (by comparison) bulky DSLR to take an image of something thats taking place 10 meters in front of them.
In my opinion, L16 is not going to do anything to the DSLR market, if anything its competing with the point n shoot market.
It could make an effective and interesting addition to a kit

Dont let the door hit you, it catches hypocrites quite easily.

Ps your dslr still cant give the same immersion as simple 3d camera. Nothing changed.

You wouldn't get the same immersion from dslr as you would from a simple fuji 3d camera.
May be you should consider puting your money where your mouth is.
