In reply to:

princecody: Who is making the sensor?

Probably Sony which have produced most of the sensors in the pentax dslrs and also Ricoh GR.

Keytsa: No 4K?
My kid's mobile phone has 4K video...
I'll pass... :-)

4K is no warranty for good quality. Can still be smudged or smoothed quality to hell. I would rather go with a decent 1080p output than a mediocre 4K output.
Now Olympus, Nikon and probably fujifilm have not much good reputation for video quality in their compacts. Though their dslrs/Ilcs may be a little different. They would be plain stupid if they didn't care about try stay on par with their competitors.
It is different with Canon, sony, panasonic and Samsung as I believe all these have some sort of camcorders, which means they should have better know-how when it comes to getting good video quality from different sensors.

In reply to:

schaki: Still no Raw. Always thought the TG-850 and 860 looked like potentially nice waterproof cameras with that wide zoom, but disappointed by the NR which really showed off to the negative side in review sample-images.
Hope that Olympus have opted for less crazy foliage-ruining NR this time or at least have NR options.

But no tilt-screen or 21mm.

In reply to:

Troutguy: will I be able to use the tilt screen underwater? Ive been waiting for a cam like that.

They've had the Tilt-screen since the TG-850 which was their first with this 21-105mm zoom. Hopefully Olympus have gotten to the bottom with the NR issues this time and sorted. That was why I didn't buy a TG-850 or 860.
I was clearly hoping that Olympus would have added Raw for the TG-870 as they did not only for the TG-4 but also their somewhat lower end travelzoom-compact, the Olympus SH-2 last year.
Unlike the more advanced Stylus 1 and 1S, with 1/1.7" sensor and constant 2.8 aperture, though a shorter 28-300mm zoom, the SH-1 didn't have Raw. SH-1 and SH-2 have 1/2.3" sensor and a somewhat slow widest aperture at the long end of the zoom

On article Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue (378 comments in total)
In reply to:

just someone: Different approach than Nikon in handling faulty camera models. Haha

At least Leica which traditionally overprices their cameras should have no major problem to handle the goodwill replacements.
In fact it is rather Kodak/Platinum Equity which should pay for this mess by sending out a new batch of updated sensors which will not have this problem with corrision.

On article Samsung NX mini Review (108 comments in total)

From page 8. "Slow image processor and Micro-SD storage make drive mode extremely sluggish"
May I ask Dpreview staff what microSD card (not mentioned in the review as far as I can see) which has been used while using this camera for testing ?
Drive modes not only in this camera can get slow if one uses an inexpensive slow card. And while there is not as many microSDHC / SDXC high end cards as for traditional SD-cards, at least they definitely exist in limited numbers.
Just bought one myself not long ago to use with a Sony HX50V.

A samsung microSD Pro 32gb or Sandisk Extreme Pro MicroSdhc 32gb should be enough and there is SDXC 64gb available. Bought one myself and it arrived in the mail yesterday.
At least the Samsung card which I bought here in Sweden and comes with a microSD to SD adapter cost me equivalent 24 Usd including shipment.
R/W specified to 90/80 for that card and 95/90 for the Sandisk which would have more than doubled the price. Samsung-card reviewed http://is.gd/ez80Q5

Too bad about the pinhead size and while my 1.5mp Minolta Dimage EX1500 still is fully useable, 1.27mp or something around that is almost only good for front-camera on a cellphone.
The sensor in that old minolta was at least 1/2". We can hope that Sony is gonna introduce at least a 1/2.3", 1/1.7" and 1" of this new tech later on. 1/2.3" is still the standard in travelzoom compacts even though the 1/1.7" is getting to that point as well.

On article Photokina 2014: Hands-on with Leica X and X-E (133 comments in total)
In reply to:

schaki: Cool, Leica X but unfortunately that lens is just too large to make the camera pocketable.
What is it with the Leica X-E that might make a real diference to the X2 ?
Quite likely it is the same 16 mp sensor unless it is a new revision of the same.
Same can be said about the lcd screen unless it have better light-sealing. But with that said I've never seen a X2 IRL so I dunno how that Lcd is to use in sunlight.
Probably the same lens as well if not Leica made a new tweaked up revision of it.

Well. I expressed my slight disappointment over that the large fast lens on the Leica X. I know that it not is intended for such a use and in general not many other large-sensor compacts either. Still I've carried a Fujifilm X100 in pockets on my trousers and while it was sligtly tight it still worked well enough for me.
There is smaller ones like Nikon Coolpix A and Ricoh GR which alsol have aps-c sensor. Though smaller widest aperture than the Leica X and the X100.
There is not too many but at least some interesting serious compacts worth to have a look at.

When I talked about pocketable I of course meant it as the way to carry the camera around when not in actual use. Having it in the frontpockets on trousers makes it possible to pull it up quickly enough, maybe not for quite all but most of the pictures or moments which I want to capture.

For me personally I don't like having the camera hanging in a strap.

In reply to:

tecnoworld: I really like companies, like Fuji and Oly, that add features to existing models. Bravo! The others should take example from those.

That's good initiative though not something new to me or users of Ricoh GRDs. Ricoh has done just that, supported by adding requested features up to two year after release of each new GRD. http://dpreview.com/news/2007/11/22/ricohgrdfirm?utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_source=news-list&utm_medium=text&ref=title_4

peevee1: Panasonic still insists on losing money in rapidly dying submarket.

The small super-zoom compacts is one part of compacts in which the cameras in smartphones not are gonna compete with anytime soon.

Link | Posted on Jan 7, 2014 at 02:14 UTC

FFS Fujifilm. It is about time to replace that filthy slow 28-140mm zoom. f3.9 at the wide end and the macro no better than 9cm!
Maybe take an Oly-similar route with a faster zoom and potentially if possible to that add an EXR or X-trans cmos sensor? That might be something worth to have a look at..
Too bad that Olympus, not to mention the Pentax WG-3 use too much filthy NR which almost destroy foliage and details in pictures.
But who knows, maybe the Olympus TG-3, if there is one to come, is gonna be a real step forward from the TG-2, which should at least add NR options and why not even Raw?

On article Nikon AW1 First Impressions Review (590 comments in total)

The Nikonos wont be properly reborn until the camera uses full frame sensor.
This seems like the development of the Nikon 1 system which almost was doomed to fail before it reached the shelves in the stores the first time.
Craptax Q is an other joke amongst cameras with interchangeable lenses.
The 1" sensor size however would make sense to used more in usual compacts and I certainly would like to see compacts like Cann S110 and Coolpix P7700 use this sensor size it it would be possible.
