oh, wow... it snacks up Sony's ZV-1 and ZV-2. These cameras need an extra gimbal. And even a ZV-E10 is now questionable. The ZV-E10 can use different lenses, but it needs a gimbal too. With the new 1 inch sensor it will offer good low light performance and for vlogging and daily video use it will be fine.

dmartin92: I had a lot of problems getting photos from camera my into my iPhone and iPad, using the app, and then I bought a SD card reader, and it’s almost comical how easy it is, in comparison. Pop the SD card out of the camera, put the card into the reader, plug the reader into the iPhone or iPad, then import. For 20 photos, the entire operation is done in less than 30 seconds. More photos take a few more seconds, but not much. And it works easily every time.

@carol T - is astonish that people didn't know this features, because apple offer a SD-card reader for their product line since several years. For your iPad or MacBook you can use every USB-C reader since ten years and even longer

@abrasivereducer - yes, this is sadly true. Even a wired remote works better then all this bluetooth stuff. In the past I plugged in a cable in the front of my Nikon dslrs. This cable release works perfect without a battery. Today nobody could imagine this anymore

eno2: To be honest,I very much like the colors and tonality of the images.

@eno2 - yes, my way of thinking. The IBIS was not completely useless. You gain 1 or 2 stops of stabilization. Wonder why it is rated to 5 stops. But yes, it was near useless. I couldn't believe that Sony adds such a bad IBIS in an A6700. A camera for young people and vloggers. It should have the same 7 stops like a X-T5 or X-S20. In my mind the sensor of the FX30 was expensiv enough so Sony had to save some money elsewhere

@eno2

sounds silly and ill, but I purchased an A7R5 only because I want to have exactly this 8 stop IBIS. And know I enjoy regular taking photos with 1/8 or 1/4 of a second. Even 1/2 second is possible with a little help or smooth hand

Yes, this are the new Sony colors from the newest cameras. Not comparable to the old ones. I like them too

Aroart: It would be interesting to have a comparison with a smart phone image printing to an instax printer to this camera.. I personally own the original instax printer and its still holding strong..

it makes no sense to compare it with a smartphone. The large film format with a 65...66mm focal length lens gives an unique look. You have to fake the same look with software

On article Sony ZV-1 Mark II hands-on (40 comments in total)

I use the ZV1 as a video camera and as a photo camera. At work I use it also as a webcam. For this purpose the original ZV-1 is much more suitable. It got an equivalent 25,38 to 69,39mm f/4,86 to 7,56 lens. While using as a webcam at 40...50mm focal length it provides only equivalent aperture of 7,56, but it can blur the background in a soft and natural way. The new ZV1 II got a 18,63 to 47,52mm f/4,86 to 10,8 lens. Yes it is much wider at the same aperture, but you lost me completely at the longer end. I love to shoot video around 50mm and I would use it at a webcam around 40mm. But in this case I will get a very dark aperture of equivalent f/10,8. The background will be perfect sharp and all photos and videos will look like the stuff out of a smartphone. You have to blurry the background artificial via software afterwards. No more a photographic or cinematic look anymore. Everything will be sharp. By the way: The corners are looking awful with the new lens when taking photos

mosc: In 2023, this should be the width of a kit lens. Kudos. I'll stick with the 3 stop brighter for not much more money 20-40 f2.8 though

@m_black - yes, correct... it is cheap. Cheap price, cheap build quality, cheap purpose , cheap user group... and exact this is the thing that I complain

completely correct. What is Nikons plan for the aps-c line? At the moment not really photographers or people with style and money. Maybe poor amateur vloggers and soccer moms

@akai_w - "create a better image"... depends on your own workflow. Nikon D1 was for professionals. This lens is for vloggers and holiday people. Two complete different approaches. And I don't think that this attempt with a lot of plastic and dark aperture will stand long against the smartphone fools. People that are searching for a quality system will look elsewhere. Look on instagram what hippster like to use

what I would expect? A XF18-55mm 2.8-4.0 from Nikon or a 12-28mm f/4 straight through the range. I wouldn't expect a plastic mount from Nikon. Sounds like 1980 Tamron or old 1980 Canon EF lenses. But yes, target group has changed. People with expectations and feeling for quality -> Fujifilm APSC. And people who are searching for a cheap addition to their smartphone and a camera for vacation time that could be thrown away afterwards -> Nikon. It feels wrong to me as a person who used to own a Nikon D300s and D800 long time ago. The Nikon aps-c range of lenses are disposable ones for a family weekend. Like a pocket camera in the past. I even don't understand the benefit against a modern smartphone if you go so low in quality, f-number and expectations

@m_black - think about it twice. Mosc is showing us how primitiv Nikons aps-c approach is

On article Can't find a Fujifilm X100V? What are the alternatives? (366 comments in total)
In reply to:

pixelpreaching: The GR IIIx (which I have and love) does have one advantage over the X100V: IBIS, which makes up for the one stop slower lens (unless shallow DOF is what you're after). The snap focus mode is also great for street. And its lens is better than the Fuji's.

yes, a Ricoh GR3 / GR3x can go down to 1/2...1/4 second in terms of exposure time. A Fujifilm X100F / X100V can go down to 1/60....1/125 second. This is a huge difference. And if someone will told me that he can go down to 1/30 sec. with a X100V, then he should try 1...2 seconds exposure time on a Ricoh. The IBIS is magic in my Ricoh and I would never spent money on a non IBIS body anymore

Jimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii: "There's no inherent reason why CCD itself would capture color any differently from CMOS"

Disagreed. CMOS pictures look completely different, although I cannot say exactly why. Just compare side by side for yourselves. Put any good modern CMOS pictures side by side with what a cheap old CCD compact produces. You might be surprised how plasticy CMos looks

To be fair do it in good light.

@Jimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii - no, I tried myself different CCD cameras out of the past and furthermore I used to own a Nikon D80. The problems with old CCD cameras are not the colors, not the noise, not the readout speed. The main problem is dynamic range and lost of color-information with it. The Nikon D80 and Olympus e300 tend to deliver you green sky and complete false color information in the very dark areas. This behavior don't look analog und film-stylish. It looks crap. For example: Put a nice person in front of a CCD camera a take a picture in the sun. If the person is white with a pale skin you will burn out the skin at the forehead, The color information is lost forever. Even the best software can't get this information back. Burned forehead looks crap. So you have to set the exposure down by a huge margin. -0,7...-1,3...-1,7 EV. And now you destroy colors of the clothes. Great πŸ˜– . Today I use Panasonic und Fujifilm CMOS cameras for a perfect analog look. Looks much better 😊

twinfighter: 'It's our mission to make any camera system easier operate' - πŸ˜… failed the last 10 years since smartphones take over

my intention was not the reason of having a smartphone or having a camera. My intention was operation and handling. You have to see it from the other side: Nearly everyone who owns and uses a camera owns and uses a smartphone too. And things like touchscreen driven operation and installing apps for more usability are some points that are missing until today. But could have been solved since 5...10 years. Installing Apps and using a touchscreen are nothing special or new. Or using cloud based services like Adobe Lr are not supported until today. I have to unplug my old fashioned SD-Card and have to use adapters for my phone, pad or laptop to load the into the cloud. This sounds like "It's our mission to make any camera system easier operate" 😁
