M Chambers: I'd never become a photographer in DC. Since you can't carry a gun there you shouldn't feel safe to carry a camera.

That is so stupid

Jim Evidon: No matter how advanced cellular phone cameras get, they still have a tiny sensor with all the limitations inherent in small sensor cameras. I have a recent iPhone and I am amazed at the IQ. However, I am primarily a photographer and neither the iPhone nor its competitors can approach the quality of a large sensor camera. That is why I finally broke down and bought a DXO One camera for the iPhone. With its Sony 1 inch sensor and aspheric large aperture prime lens, the IQ frankly blew me away. That is especially so when shooting in the SuperRaw mode that delivers the equivalent of approx. 40 megapixels as opposed to the base 20 mgpxl sensor. Cell phone cameras are perfect for selfies and those 'precious-moment' family pictures but for the finer image, you still need a dedicated camera. BTW, the DXO One has had a very attractive price drop and includes a bunch of useful accessories including a hard shell belt case and the all weather/underwater case for rain forest/snorkeler/scuba fans.

jesus. I love photographers that rave about the advantages of large sensor cameras and miss countless opportunities to actually photograph while giving "the speech"

Oh and you don't need a camera.
Turns out, you don't even need a smartphone.
But you do need food and water.

jim seekers: Ok just seen still's and video comparison's between the one plus 5 and Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 is miles better at capturing detail, The Camera on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S8 will be better than the One Plus 5.
Tiny Little Sensor and 20 Million Pixels, Far Too Many, I was not impressed at fine detail being very smudged while the Galaxy S8 resolved it easily and the S7 will do the same.
go on to YouTube and type in OnePlus 5 Vs Samsung Galaxy S8 Camera Comparison.

But it was a post and his opinion.
You just cannot ask for more, can you?
Just be glad he is not running a company.
Or a whole country.
(Hopefully)
Make Samsung great again.

cosinaphile: because the manufacturer decide to remove my choice by not providing an sd card slot , this device is dead to me , and would never be under consideration because its missing an interface slot that probably cost a dollar

as interesting as apple .....for me

you know what also would have had costed only one dollar more? no? me neither. I have no clue how much anything in the design and production of a smartphone costs or how it affects integrity of the device or if it would be easy to rearrange the components. You apparently do, great for you.

Do you really produce gigabytes of photos for a session or a trip that you can't sync with a cable? I honestly see no point in a SD card... and apparently hundreds of thousands of other users too that buy smartphones without SD card slots.

I'm sure some people in the early 2000s didn't buy certain laptops because for the lack of an optical drive.
Guess what?

JeanPierre Thibaudeau: Very nice colours. But the white balance could be improved as a few shots are way too blue.

I really prefer the colours from this cam over the X-Trans sensor cams. So much more natural and pleasing.

that is why they came up with an xtrans color filter and their xtrans voodo-engine, isn't it?

In reply to:

Jim Evidon: It seems that everyone on this forum has a crystal ball that enables them to see into Ricoh's boardroom and divine what their actual business plan will be. Kudos to you all who appear to have an inside information track in this matter. For all of those knowledgeable seers I have one question: How many Ricoh cameras have you purchased in the last three years? OK, I lied. I have one other question: Before the disastrous announcement by Ricoh, how many of you seriously intended to buy a Ricoh (or Pentax) camera for real?

lets be honest. if your goal is to make a memory, the cameras like the pentax k-5 or ricoh gr do very well. you shoot the photo, make adjustments on your computer and print it.

compare it with a car. 100 years ago having a car was super expensive, out of the question for many and it was super uncomfortable and impractical. bare useless to go on a 200 miles trip.
50 years ago, it was much more affordable, but they didn't have AC, airbags etc.
point is, the cars 50 years ago were not as advanced as ours today, but they did the job.

unless the job of your car is to be an automobile as advanced and cutting edge as it can be

kreislauf: damn, I see my potential Ricoh GR III not being available to me in 2017...
that sucks.

@mdt1 one word: wife

It might be true, that a GR3 will not meet my expectations and honestly, what camera release ever did (I remember the V2 and V3 releases, that I awaited eagerly... still can't believe the design choices made by nikon)
But I'd go with a GR2 then. To have a 4th compact camera. No way my wife lets me get away with this. Damn.
So let me just get back to complain about the missing GR3 rumors. I really do miss it.

me, me.
I am still thinking about a K1 as a system and alternatively eying the APS-C line with their lenses bust most probably will stay mirrorless.
I will most definitely buy a GR this year, may it be the GR2 or (hopefully) a GR3 we will see.

Wait. To answer the question: I did not buy a Ricoh, yet.
Damn.

jennajenna: Why does Sony feel the need to copy Canon's use of the color white (almost same shade actually) for zoom lenses?

*boom* there we go. Canon stole it first. Problem, fanboys?

Andersonm: Let's face it: Sony 6500 with IBIS, Sigma 19mm 2.8, Sigma 30mm 1.4, Sigma 60mm 2.8.

i like the approach.
people usually have 3 or more lenses and get carried away.
having only 2 lenses makes perfect sense... IMHO

Jimmy 7777: Bought the Sig. 30 f1.4 and absolutely LOVE it on my Sony a6300. Tack sharp and the boke is amazing. Get one today....Sigma will work to fast focus with this camera.

In reply to:

Clint009: With that 30mm Sigma, what would be the difference on using on SonyA6000 vs Olympus?

Some other test (not with DP Preview) are saying the series 19mm 30mm 60mm are better on E mount APS-C (Sony A6000) !!!

a lens will usually perform better on a sensor with a larger pixel pitch.
So if you have a finer resolution, the optical flaws of a lens is more apparent.
That's why full frame lenses are usually not spectacular on APS-C or even worse, m43 cameras.

Tito120: Unfortunately, light that isn't captured by the sensor is wasted. We don't have to discuss that, it's a fact.

I only mentioned this to clearify that 28/2 on APS-c is comparable to 30/1.4 on mFT.

http://clavier-arabe.over-blog.com/

still funny that the "calculus war" never ceases...

and arguments like this are hilarious:
"We don't have to discuss that, it's a fact."
(a.k.a. don't contradict me, I couldn't handle it!)

"I only mentioned this to clearify that 28/2 on APS-c is comparable to 30/1.4 on mFT."
this is a funny statement as well. where do you come up with this?

beavertown: The old Canon counterpart seems to be better in image quality.

I'm always baffled how people can tell properties of lenses or cameras they never used.
They sure must be very experienced to be able to judge this well.

In reply to:

attomole: One of the reasons Photography as a serious or semi serious hobby sucks is the cost of lenses, this looks a lot of fun to use, to have in the bag for certain shots, and of a quality that will not let down your craft skills , but it over 1200 bucks, naaaah! not happening.

you think that is a lot?
Folks here have crazy setups with a RX1RII or a Leica Q or whatever as backup cameras.
