  • If you know anything about cameras, that's never going to happen. First the 18-135 is a APS C spec for 35mm equiv of 28-200, 2nd the RX100 main nichc is small pocket size. 3rd the RX10 which is ...
  • if you don't highly value EVF and 4K, your best bet at a comparable price is the Sony RX100 model 2 which retails at under 600. I like the model 2 because it is the only RX100 with a hotshoe. I ...

  • Created discussion thread External TTL for Premium Compacts?
    As a recent DP review article highlights, that TTL flash adds much to a photographers toolbox for both casual to more serious users. Unfortuately, premium compacts today like LX10 and RX100V have ...
  • Created discussion thread Light L16
    It seems strange that after a month of being sold out, not a single online unboxing or user review has appeared on such a unique product. I was sure that some professional photographer would post ...
  • I currently use the LG G5 with the camera module. It definitely improves camera experience with nicely located camera like 2 stage shutter button, separate movie button and zoom wheel and a...
