OMG, did anyone hack Lars' account or is this a modern attempt to use AI for writing articles? Konica, Minolta, Konica-Minolta🙈

Scott Pickering: I don't see why Canon is number one, other then marketing. It is the least innovative of the three companies (Canon, Nikon, Sony) and is using more old technology in their cameras then the other 2. They especially are lacking in their sensor technology. Yet Canon hold the number 1 spot. I used to be a Canon guy, but switched long ago when they couldn't keep up.

I have been choosing between Sony, Canon and Fuji mirrorless. It turns out that given the total price for the body and the lenses Canon is the winner

On article Meet the Canon PowerShot G1 X III (317 comments in total)

When I'm asking myself what can my camera do better than my smartphone, one of the obvious things would be the zoom range. It does not have to be a monster zoom, the one from G1X is actually quite ok. With better sensor resolution and 1 stop better light gathering capacity Mark II would have been a perfect camera. I would be ready to pay 1,5k$ for this, but not for this cripple

M Chambers: Whether the law is right or wrong, what these guys did was really stupid. It was sure to invite trouble.

They don't sound like pros.

There are plenty of idiots on the roads themselves, who pose a lot greater danger. And yet they are not really getting prosecuted. This is because there is always a measure. Without this measure there is no freedom for people to thrive and do their stupid things.

Why "putting themselves ... in danger" is a crime? I guess "" shouldn't start with "phy" in the end. It seems more like the guys were just upset to be called out at night to such a silly case and now putting their anger into this unreasonable argumentation

The old M3 or M6 would be good enough for me. Now what about fast, light and adapter-free tele lenses that APS-C would be so great for?

BobORama: Of course the subject needs to be illuminated with a reference laser light source. Explain that one at your kids birthday party. :-) Cheese, your all blind!

This phase lens doesn't require a laser even if the original research used it. It only needs a constant phase wave front. And apparently every light wave has it, otherwise no lens in the world would have ever worked.

servic: I think this particular case photojournalism serves to promote terrorism as not a handgun but rather the mass media is their weapon.

Showing these images is forming a new reality. A well dressed man is shooting at Russian ambassador. A perfect image to recruit new terrorists to your organisation. The person who said that "sunlight is the best deterrent to terrorism" apparently has no clue. There is a massive number of studies showing exactly the opposite. There is a good course on coursera about it.

Jim Evidon: Until you technical experts have the opportunity to read the patent application to see what Olympus is doing exactly, your comments need to be restrained.
You may very well be ultimately correct, but the article does not present enough information for you to say it won't work, will lose half the light, etc. Crystal balls are fine in their place, but are highly suspect.

Apparently the information is enough. If one does not use a polarizing beamsplitter, but rather uses a single pixel to record polarization, he loses 50% of photons per this pixel. Or one could sacrifice on contrast between polarised and unpolarized light. One can surely say that much, unless Olympus invented new physics. The question is how many such pixels they will be using, and how well does the reconstruction using a subset of such pixel work. At this point I am agree with you - we'd rather sit and wait for more information.

servic: Well, I still like my Canon G1x mark II more. With touch screen, longer zoom and no issues with the lens cap...

I am very much satisfied with the image quality of G1x mark II, otherwise I would not start with the handling issues. I don't care about brands like leica really and I am not planning to buy a dedicated device for playing 4K videos in the next few years.

Catalin Stavaru: It seems that the Canon campaign had its desired effect. This article seems to have the largest number of comments in dpreview's history :)

Then Canon should probably do much more of it. Like "This young black man dying from Ebola was shot by a Canon camera".

There is a tiny error in the conclusion stating:

"The Coolpix P7700 offers a bigger zoom lens, with a focal range of 24-200mm, but it's slower, with a max aperture range..."

I'd wish Nikon camera were a 24-200 indeed.

I do not like this camera as it looks like putting an elephant on mouse legs. The camera is neither really a wide angle nor has a sensible tele (like most of others). You can't do any reasonable portraits with it and wide angle is too long for the skies. I wonder if there were a market for two cameras LX7 + a compact camera with say some 60-300 with f2.0. And say selling two such cameras in a combo at reduced price?

cplunk: So instead of reusing your stolen lens it get a quick bash with a hammer and tossed in the garbage.

It's not going to save anyone from having there gear stolen. If a thief has the opportunity to take it they will. If it has a password on it making it unusable, they aren't going to then return it.

There are rare occasions of the stuff being found. Thieves are also different. Some of them may not damage it. Anyway, if I don't get my lens back, I'd prefer it rather being damaged than to support a thief.

to the vehicle or driver due to angry thiefs.

If you were thinking of terrorists would you oppose them? It just makes them angrier, right?

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: The problem with all these schemes is that the guy who steals your camera/computer/stereo doesn't know he needs a password.

Well, It is good enough for me that a thief can't live off my lens. Otherwise, this is an additional benefit to recognize your own lens wenn found.
