ShatteredSky: And once again my mind drifts and wonders : this is all fine and well, but where is that DL18-50 ? What a great concept that was.

@janist74: one can always hope!

Mariano Pacifico: Can people really tell if the color is accurate or not? I doubt it.

Yep, eye of the beholder and all. I have a tendency to prefer colder colour temperatures, often different from what I see in printed and online material.

tkbslc: I don't really need multi-camera stitching. I just want 3 quality camera modules at 24-40-85mm equivalent, all with google Pixel 2 level image quality. And I don't even want digital zoom in between them, just a simple toggle button to switch between the 3. Then I would never look at another 1" compact again.

Make that 18 - 40 - 85, but the other would be great, too. But then again I would take that DL16-50 in a heartbeat.

Cheezr: I wonder if this is where Fuji are getting their rumored 28MP sensor from?
AFAIK Sony doesn't fab one and Sammy used one in their NX1... hmmm

Hmmm indeed, I have one in my NX500. If they do a second coming of that sensor it would be nice, since the days of my NX500 seem to be numbered.

ShatteredSky: Yes, I wish for a better quality tough compact, but the TG-5 is still the best most versatile one that is out there. Since I got some white good images with the TG-1 underwater (concerning its price), the TG-5 should even be better ...

DE: I use zoom and built in macro-function underwater all the time on the XZ-2 and LX100. I could do away with the 4x zoom, if there were good and not that expensive wet-lenses, or a good macro-mode. The Sealife comes quite close, but is not entirely there yet. One problem seems to be the slow RAW write times.

Yes, and that is the drawback, no zoom. Otherwise I would be all over the saline ...

photoholiko: I won't buy an Olympus tough again, a previous model I had the screen died after three months.

I have the TG-1 since 2012, and used it every year underwater. Still works like a charm ... had a Panasonic before that that died on me though.

ShatteredSky: Hmmm, why was it named after a Greek island?

@Kostasm: yeah, as a youngster I visited the island in the late eighties / early nineties I think. We arrived with the ferry at two o'clock in the morning and had to sleep on the beach before we could get a room the next day. Saw the monolith in the distance, while my father climbed it one morning. The photos I've seen from up there are impressive ...

On article Sony announces Cyber-shot RX100 VI with 24-200mm zoom (758 comments in total)
In reply to:

noisephotographer: Maybe they should make two series:
24-50mm f/1.4 - f/2.4
50-400mm f/3.3 - f/6.4

Yep, thought about that for several years. But as has been stated above, the tele version probably would not sell well. And while you are at it, 24-50 is too limited, I'd rather have 18-50. Nikon DL anyone?

ekaton: Panasonic LX200 with that fast 24-120mm zoom and an AA filter free 20MP mft sensor, where are you?

That would be great. Have no problem with a size increase ...

In reply to:

ShatteredSky: Hmmm, looking at the bats contour it indeed looks fishy ... and the the ball should hit the bat where it breaks. Like it is I have to agree that the physics do not seem to make sense.

OK, you convinced me, thanks. I guess the bats contour is down to some image compression issue. So the bat breaks at its weakest point, even if it gets hit further out, since the head moves faster and is much heavier?

rgs_45: This is great BUT I want a TOUGH camera with at least 1" sensor or bigger.
I will even take the LX100 AS IS if Pany can redesign it and make it as a TOUGH camera. I wouldn't mind even it's a bit bigger than the current LX100 just make it a RUGGED and TOUGH camera.

The Sealife has no zoom. I use the LX100 in a housing, but would buy a tough version in an instant.

john Clinch: Shall we save space and time here. There is 1 inch sensor rugged compact

https://www.ephotozine.com/article/world-s-first-waterproof-camera-with-1inch-cmos-sensor-30226

Once they integrate a zoom lens I am listening, or do a wide and a semi-tele macro version. What are their wet-lens options?

Link | Posted on May 12, 2018 at 14:39 UTC

Sigh, does not add anything for underwater shooting. Better the lens and put in a larger sensor, I don't mind a size increase.

That arctic for shot is great!

Well, yes, ok. But I still rather discover things on my own. Getting some hints though may not be too bad ... sometimes.
