Serious Aps-c compact cameras.
When did I write that is scene-modes on FF dslr or ILC is fine?
Beside that I give nothing for if there is scene-modes on Dslrs or ILC cameras. What i was talking about is that on compact cameras with aps-c or larger sensor, those buy these compacts have no need for silly scene-modes.

I'm talking about compact-cameras (Not small dslrs or ILC with interchangeable lenses) which those in the know buy, that already have some kind of advanced aps-c or FF Dslr or ILC system and want some smaller complement with decent image quality that can be taken almost everywhere like Ricoh GR and Fujifilm XF10, Coolpix A etc.

Those who buy a compact-camera with aps-c know what they are doing and couldn't care more for scene-modes.

This camera uses aps-c sensor size and as such is aimed at serious photographers which have no need for scene-modes.
What other aps-c compact have scene-modes. On the mode-dial? I can't think of any.
Not Leica X-1, X2, X-E, X-vario, Fujifilm X100 series, X70, Ricoh GRI, II, III, Canon Eos M10, M100 or Panasonic LX100I and Lx100II.
The only one except the XF10 I could find was Nikon Coolpix A. But Nikon has at least been smart enough to collect them all on one single, simply called "Scene" on the mode-dial while XF10 have a bunch of at least five scene-modes and no My1 or My2 settings on that dial at all. That's not very well.
Oh I forgot the Fujifilm X70. But that one doesn't have scene-modes on the mode-dial either.

Ocolon: Please do a test, dpreview, even if it’s just a quick & dirty one.

I’m interested in the lens quality. For a camera that does not have RAW I’d also appreciate seeing JPEGs with no noise reduction applied additionally to the standard output.

The optical performance of the lens is good enough. Ricoh Have used it in some of their earlier waterproof cameras like G600, G700, G800 and their less expensive WG-series of compact cameras like WG-20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and for Pentax optio W60, 80 and 90 as well.
That zoom have no sensor-shift image stabilisation 28-140mm and f3.5-5.5. Back in 2008 when the first two cameras using it was announced, Ricoh G600 and Pentax Optio W60, it was an ok zoom but today it is rather outdated in no less than three ways as I mentioned above.
The official sample images from Ricoh WG-6 looks ok. Not sure if I will buy it or go for an Olympus TG-5 or TG-6 (if it is announced in time) which have a more up to date zoom.

Alphaville: iPhone XS has much better DR, AF, burst rate and video. It’s also lighter. No twin card slot though

I had a brief look look at some Iphone XS pictures in a review and was actually positively surprised by how well those images holds up even at full size. Yes there is some grainy noise even at low iso, but there is no smudging Noise reduction or pixelated foliage which so many other smartphone-cameras have a real hell of.
My Iphone 7 was not very well either, but with that said I've barely used the camera at all since ios 11 and maybe Apple fixed the noise reduction issues with ios 12.
The iphone XS howevever was better than I expected https://photographyblog.com/reviews/apple_iphone_xs_review/sample_images
Still my Nikon D1H which I still have can produce similar results with less noise, still good detail but lower resolution of course. Not to mention the D1X and D100 which is 5 repectively 6mp might embarrass the likes of XS and other smartphones even more.

Good to see some more coverage of this camera. Seems to be very good. Too bad just that there is not possible to turn down or off NR for in camera jpgs. Perhaps they fix that for next model.

Worse ooc jpeg s than one might expect for such a cameraphone really. Obvious problem with too much noise reduction and too high sharpening as well.

Too bad that Fujifilm never replaces that zoomlens with slow widest aperture. If they did and the image quality would be good then I might have been interested.

In reply to:

justmeMN: The APS-C compact competition, the Fujifilm X100F and Ricoh GR II, don't have any zoom at all. They are fixed-focal-length cameras.

Sure GRII, Coolpix A and X70 don't have zoom. But neither the thickness of the G1 X MKIII. They are different cameras.

Wow now that this is an actioncamera, But it still looks rather fat compared to Sealife DC2000 which I read also is shockproof and waterproof. 1" sensor, 31mm equivalent lens and f/1.8 while the RX0 is just f4 despite the thickness of the camerabody.

However Nikon has got this one right or wrong remains to be seen. Too often when they are under pressure and release a new camera they gets something wrong like with the D600 or the left-side AF points with D800 or some weak soldering in the first gen Nikon D70 which affected several users back then.
The first Nikon D1 series, including the D100 (based on the N/F80 film-body) was pretty reliable as far as I remember and I still have my D1H which works pretty well except for the Nimh-batteries.
The problems for Nikon, in the digital age, seems to have begun with the D70 and D2H. The D70 which Nikon more or less had to rush to the market not to let Canon take too much of a market-share with their first Entry level dslr, the 300D
And there is more surely be more which I may have forgotten.
So, skip the talk about Nikon is no longer on the ropes shall we? Considering their current record they still have a reliability point or two to prove.

Ricoh entered this class already in september 2005 With the Ricoh Caplio R3 which have a 28 - 200mm zoom in a compact body. Dimensions 95 x 53 x 26.
It have IS as well as fast AF and good optical performance and fortunately very little noise reduction, though which not everyone liked.

Too bad but at this stage it was more or less expected to be abandoned at some point.

For sure not very good. The last of these three, think it was, the V705 had better image quality. Less NR. http://quesabesde.com/camaras/kodak-easyshare-v705/muestra/654261

schaki: So it is only the color which can be Titanium for this camera, but no the body material which is said to still be Aluminium, right?
I've a 2002 Contax TVS Digital and most of the utter body/shell materials are made of realTitanium and also a sapphire release button http://contaxcameras.co.uk/digital/tvsdigital/tvsdigitaloverview.html
A superb little camera which was expensive as new but I bought my used a couple of years ago and have used it quite a lot and still do so alongside my Leica X1 which I bought not very long ago.

If Leica was to offer some decent pancake-primes like Samsung did with their aps-c NX-mount or a small collapsible zoom which Panasonic made. Then I actually might be a little more interested in the Leica T-system despite not using FF sensors.

Well. The aps-c TL 18-56mm have a length/depth of 60mm. Compare that to the Samsung NX 16-50mm which only is 31mm length and have very similar widest apertures compared to Leica 18-56mm. Add to that the Samsung-lens have Optical image stabilisation unlike the Leica-zoom. As far as i can find in Dpreview specs for Leica TL it don't have in camera image stabilisation either. Somewhat surprising.

Shame that samsung pulled out of the camera business just when they had begun to really get it right and catch up well with NX1 and NX500.

In reply to:

Old Cameras: So the red dot costs about $300, yes?

I would presume that the PanaLeica edition have longer warranty than Panasonic's own version. And yes, of course you mainly pay for the red dot as well a little unless you like me buy a real Leica like the X1 which have no Panasonic equivalent.
