tassienick: 'ISO 200, 1/1000 sec, F4, 25mm equiv., Panasonic Leica Summilux DG 25mm F1.4 lens.'

I'm assuming you mean '50mm equiv.'?

You are indeed correct.

In reply to:

HaroldC3: I have to wonder if this is the best m43 will ever have to offer? Where do they go from here?

We mentioned this on Page 4. We were getting strange results in our IS testing due to shutter vibration. The IS system is probably trying to counteract the shock, hence causing more blur.

In reply to:

NCB: Thought with the GX7 you could still use lens-based IS in those lenses which had it? This review implies that only in-body IS is available.

If you have a lens that supports Dual IS then both will work. If you have lenses that are compatible with the m4/3 image stabilizer standard (whatever that is), the it's lens-based. Otherwise it's in-body.

Stollen1234: Great Eight: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 review
What a title...how could this review be really obejective?

as revenant said, the title is one of the last things we come up with. We sit around and try to come up with something that's somewhat clever. Usually we don't do a very good job of that. We can always go back to just posted: Panasonic GX8 review

In reply to:

raztec: The majority of these shots have some degree of negative exposure compensation. I wonder if that means the camera over exposes in general.

That was certainly my experience.

In reply to:

Smaug01: Your mom needs a bigger purse. Or a G7X II, and just crop when more zoom is needed. (it'll probably be better than a zoomed-in image from a 1/2.3" sensored P&S)

I agree with your premise though. Amateur photographers have never had it so good.

Trust me, my mom's purse is big enough as it is. Watching her trying to find her ringing iPhone in it is... comical?

Pretty sure the Nikon's are not Sony.

Helmut Eder: You missed the Casio EX100. Very similar to Stylus 1s, but smaller because it doesn't have a viewfinder. Excellent IQ and good bright zoom lens.

@Bernard
I've got a QV-10 sitting on my desk that we had on display at PIX. Still works! If you have a data cable, let me know!

In reply to:

Biowizard: Can someone remind me - just HOW big is a "1 inch" sensor? I know it is anything _but_ 25.4mm diagonal.

PLEASE can we start coming up with a STANDARD way of measuring sensor sizes that does NOT keep harking back to ancient vacuum tubes?

Brian

Agreed. Why we can't just use sensor area (sqmm) is beyond me.

In reply to:

breth: What is lacking is a serious large sensor compact with environmental sealing. A "rugged" Ricoh GR or Nikon A.

Only a matter of time, I imagine. (And no, I have no inside info.)

MarioV: Jeff, I always remember your review
http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/panasonic/dmc_tz1-review/
where you bought the TZ1 for your dad. Based on that, I bought one myself. Now, almost 10 years later, I'm also looking to buy the TZ100.
Shame on you for making them use the same old camera all this time ;)

Ha, yes, that was the camera they've been using. At some point the convenience of the iPhone took over, and I've been struggling to convince them to use an actual camera instead. Slow progress. Now if I could only get them to use a password manager instead of stickies...

Combatmedic870: Now it's time for pricing to drop. There's no longer a strangle hold and this is no longer niche. I can see $450-650 coming soon enough

I hope you're right. Sony's no longer the only game in town so the competition should, in theory, drive prices down.

Casio cameras are not sold in the US anymore, so it wasn't even a consideration. Kind of a shame, actually.

Quick note: the specs we had for these cameras were incorrect regarding ND filters. Both of the compact DLs have ND filters - not just the 18-50.

Embargoes...

In reply to:

Nukunukoo: With its resolution and high speed capability, I won't be surprised if it uses the rx-10 II sensor.

Definitely not the same as the RX10 II sensor, which is a stacked CMOS. It's almost certainly the same as the one in the Nikon 1 J5 which we're pretty sure is not made by Sony.

Not sealed.

sunnycal: "Features 9 elements / 7 groups, Minimum Aperture: F1.6, 52mm filter thread, Minimum Focus Distance: 11.8in, Weight: 9.3oz, Dimensions: 2.6x2.9in."

Min aperture f1.6? What am I missing?

Typo in their press release. Fixed it for them.

JackM: I hope realtors don't discover that 18-50!

Realtors will also appreciate the built-in HDR feature!

In reply to:

NilsBV: The specs of the 24-500 appear to be those of the 18-50.

Some of them were- thanks for the catch!
