On article Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI: What you need to know (433 comments in total)
In reply to:

2eyesee: What is it with Sony? Just like they did with the RX10 series they've massively increased the focal length at the cost of:
1. Slower lens
2. No ND filter
3. Higher price
4. Size increase

The only thing that thought was ever wrong with my RX100 III is that the focal length didn't reach your classical head-and-shoulders portrait focal lengths and the lack of a touch screen.

I would much rather Sony had kept the lens fast, kept the ND filter, and given us a decent 24-100mm. Looking at the equivalent aperture chart it looks like this is f/4 from 40mm - on a 1" sensor, no thanks.

Idiots will buy, $1200 for lil sony "gee wiz it has to be super great camera" LOL

Last one was way over priced, this one is a ripoff for Sony fanboys, SLower lens too, no thanks... I had a used RX100ii for awhile, menu sucks but good pictures.I will never buy new Pocket cameras again, so many sell them used to buy latest greatest toy.

howieb101: The most obvious con is loss of the built in flash. Whether you like built in flash or not, it's still a con not having it. This is especially when the X-E3 is only 13 grams lighter. I think DPReview should have included this in the list.

Use your Cellphone then

lakkot: Can somebody explain to me how is XT-20 entry level, X-E3 mid level and X-T2 pro level when they produce same IQ and share 95% of features? Is this just some kind of marketing scheme? I mean, you can produce the same output, so in my opinion things like ISO dial would really be of secondary consideration....

X-T20 is Mid-level - M1 and A1 are entry level,

Is simple you want Pro build and features Pay $$$

Mid-level best bang for the buck IMO

Igor Pro: The main drawback of the camera - fixed screen. Only that I did not buy it.

It should, I love my X70 for the tilt screen

In reply to:

mosc: Main complaints:
1) E3 sounds like a companion to the T2, not the T20. It should be called the E20
2) It's not cheaper than the T20. It's not even the same price. It's considerably more money.

It's priced and named like a T2 alternative but it's spec'd like a rangefinder T20 (which should actually be cheaper than the T20)

Have some cheeze with your Whine.

TN Args: "...Unlike some of its peers from other brands, there is no sensor stabilization in the X-E3, though many Fujifilm lenses offer IS."

How many prime lenses?

none

(unknown member): This camera produces excellent results with it's tiny micro sensor. It's really on par with my iPhone 8 plus. Though I don't see how anyone can shoot a camera without a rotating gyro LCD monitor? I thought the whole point of mirrorless cameras was flexibility? That Cannon G1X mark 3 looks better with it's optical viewfinder and large sensor. Though the special emulsion coating on the x-transformer sensor really gives optimal prime image quality, but at the expense of deceptive concerns. Fujifilm cameras are really more than meets the eye.

I stopped at "tiny micro sensor" your nuts

rakbaba: Although I like On1 sw and bought 9.5, 10, 2017 versions, I will not invest another 79$ for the new version, because of its never ending small bugs and performance issues.
Yes, the sw is deserving to be supported but I think its not fair to charge 79$ for the 2017 users, who hopefully struggled the flaws of the sw, for a year long...

Why I am hesitant at this point to buy the 2018 beta, I want at least a YEAR free upgrades AND tool Improvements before you charge me upgrade price over and over

In reply to:

jeffinchiangmai1: Glad to find there are other people with all these concerns. I thought I was the only one.
I'm excited about ON1 2018 and it makes me go out and take more pictures. As I'm learning more, I see there are still things I can do with PS& LR that I can't do with 2018 but the reverse is also true.
Switching to PS&LR you suddenly feel confident the programs will work bug free.
I've persevered with 2017 and each version seemed to get better. I like the new features on 2018 but both the Panorama and HDR have gone pear shaped this morning. I've informed ON1 but they're not answering to specific problems, like they always do, because 2018 is Beta.

Hi J Michael,

I am trying the 2018 Beta, When you update it do I get a email to notify, or does your software let me know?

Also, is there a dodge& burn tool? gradiant and radial filters like LR?

thanks

Wild Light: I'm so absolutely done with Adobe. Capture One here we come.

I am fed up of all these completely inappropriate subscriptions scams, the whole world is just trying to screw everyone for every last penny they can. I am making a stand against it, because they will take every option away from us and then continually jack up the price to no end. It's pathetic.

Adobe has really turned to sh!t and I really hope other people will find alternatives instead of support this ridiculous model

I am looking at ACDSEE 2018.....pretty good so far

In reply to:

Tatouzou: Has Adobe officially stated that they have stopped selling LR 6.x standalone computer licenses?
Or is it just buried deeper in their website?

YES, you can buy it standalone and will work forever...BUT after 2017 NO updates and NO new camera updates !!

Link | Posted on Oct 20, 2017 at 18:07 UTC

NOPE, 6.0 works fine....no new camera support to force me to go with service? F**K Adobe....Adobe lost my business.

whawha: That huge 23mm lens is ill matched to a body that seems to have been designed with portability in mind. It's not even ultra bright - something more like the size of the fixed lens that comes with the X100 series would have made more sense...

BS It works great and is sized right for this camera.. get a DSLR then

whensly: Of course 99% of us have not seen the cam (used it) but I have a sneaking suspicion my face hitting the LCD when engaged in the viewfinder would trigger the LCD mode and controls causing havoc. Hope I'm wrong.

You can just shut off the touch screen and use the joystick. I would anyway....it still will have the swipe commands available

duchamp: Is battery charged by usb cable and if yes, whether it can operate while charging?

likely yes, and you can always get extra battery with charger (might come with one anyway). all cameras I have used cannot use camera while charging. not a big deal to me

webber15: I won't buy as I have the Xpro2...but...I'm liking this.
I like the idea of Fuji keeping the Xpro or XE line "purer" I.E. no flippy screen and ibis...
Xt line or proposed new high end system can happily push on as a technological "tour de force".

It's how I see it anyway...

So close minded , I have the flip screen of the X70 It is great on the street, I do not do selfies at all. IBIS should be in all these cameras. You want old school buy OLD on Ebay

In reply to:

brownie314: "Colors lean toward neutral and yellows take on a greenish cast, which can lead to undesirable skin tones."

This is what I have found with Panasonic cameras as well. Colors are not nearly as nice as canon or even Nikon. Both of those companies work hard to deliver natural looking skin tones and colors. Panasonic looks a little like technicolor.

yeah, is why I gave up on Panasonic for the most part, colors are not as good as the top makes, and faded
