Having to manage headphones batteries is a regression.

Nowadays to differentiate your products, just go with good old proven solutions... LG V20 :
- headphone jack
- removable battery (yes!)
- µSD card up to 256Go

5.7" screen is too big for my tastes and I'm not fan of the LG's interface, but I find crazy that you have to look hard to find those 3 spec together.

Yes, it seems that LG goes this way with their V20 model.

Ok, a little correction :
‘Digital photography allows consumers to LEARN HOW to take professional quality photos themselves,’ the study notes as one driving force.

Add in internet ressources available for almost free and you cannot deny the statement is true.

No card reader on the TS6020... strange, since TS5020 have one.
And why no RJ45 port on the TS8020?

In reply to:

RubberDials: Interesting that every Sony camera article is rammed with hundreds of comments about how awful and lacking it is, and in a Canon one there is absolutely zero trolling and comparatively few comments, despite Canon being late to market and the performance being behind the Sony.

It seems the rivalry is only one way, or (more probably) that many of the negative comments in the Sony threads are from paid trolls and astroturfers.

Looking at the engraving in the middle left hand ninth of the chart - the wall behind the old lady with clasped hands; the A6300 and A6000 are the only aps-c cameras resolving the lines on the wall here. The image quality is remarkable.

And yet if you visit the forums you'll find that many Canon and Nikon users will not even accept that Sony is a camera company, (They make TVs apparently).

So how do they settle this with themselves? that more detail is recorded in images produced by a camera that was built by a company that isn't even a camera company?

Compare the sony A6300 with the highest resolution available (Phase one) and you'll see something interesting :
yes, there are lines on the wall, but not the ones sony is creating artificialy (moiré).
So what is best : false pattern or sort of blured shadows?
I don't have decided yet! :)

UncheckedError: I've run into this issue before. Inconsistency between frames, usually in terms of exposure is pretty jarring. I wish there was an automated way to accomplish this task in Lightroom; this is a good start though.

Now if only they could panning and zooming around in an image more fluid in the Windows version.

In reply to:

SimonSander: No EVF, no articulating screen, and way too slow lens. I have tried the control via lens ring and zoom toggle - it's pretty awkward to use, feels like finger gymnastics to me.

So except for the size, it's not a camera I would consider buying.

Except size is the main driver for this model, legacy of the Canon S line.
The second driver is price.
If you want EVF, articulating screen and bright lens, you have...TADAAAA! ... the Canon G5X (same sensor).
;-)

In reply to:

DiegoRodriguez: I was interested in it. Then I remember seeing a photo quality comparison between G9X, S120, RX100 3 and G7X, and there really was almost no difference between G9X and S120, while the other two cameras were way better. The explanation was that its lens is so bad that it wastes its bigger sensor and in the end it was no better than its 1/1.7in sensor ancester, which by the way was smaller and had more buttons. In the end the G9X seemed to me like even less interesting than its ancester S120.
Wasn't this comparison on this website by the way ?
Now, I do not say that to insult or anything, I just share my impression. These shots look nice anyway, I may reconsider my thought on the G9X.

By the way, in your test scene, the RX100 mkIII is shot @50mm when the G7X is at 85mm and the G9X @35mm
Since they are pretty similar (same sensor) what's the reason behind this?

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10/LX15 Review (394 comments in total)

if I'm not wrong, the G7X mkII is able to take 1080 60P clips. Not limited to 30P like in your comparative table.

disraeli demon: As a digital artist who works for print most of the time, I find the proportions of these devices very frustrating - a 13" screen with a 4:3 ratio would be so much more useful to me, I'd sell my existing 13" Cintiq straight away to get one. Come on Wacom, we're not all storyboard artists.

Surface pro (3:2) and Ipad pro (4:3) are pleasure to use just thanks to their screen ratio.
16:9 video centric screens are a plague. 16:10 screens are the minimum acceptable for me.

Thanks leekil. Good to know!

Except on those external 2.5", you can't. They are not SATA anymore. The USB connectors are built-in.

On article Fast Five: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V Review (416 comments in total)

So 24fps burst is one of the main selling point of this new RX100.
Great.
But the french website "les numériques" is claiming a slightly different story :
To reach 24fps the camera double 1 image every 3 images taken.
this means that on 24ips, you have 16 real images taken and 8 that are doubled.
http://www.lesnumeriques.com/appareil-photo-numerique/sony-rx100-v-p35601/test.html

16fps is still an impressive score, but this marketing BS (if confirmed) is a bit irratating and useless.
Any details on this?

So, the protruding lens is just cosmetic?

Link | Posted on Oct 20, 2016 at 18:10 UTC as 54th comment

...and I read hundred times in this very website that the Canon old sensor tech was barely useable for high-contrast scene due to poor dynamic range.
How is that possible?!
:)
Joking aside, I'm very impressed with this work. Very well done.
Also, I was anxiously waiting to see the first rain drops on the lens - for the sake of immersion!

No, ok... that's me. Another coffe please.

Maybe that's why there is no Cfasf slot on the 5D mkIV?

In reply to:

gn28: What a major disappointment. Sure, the body is small, but it has a tone of problems that never get fixed. Simply make it a bit bigger and fix these things:
- change the lens to 24-135 so people have a bit more flexibility in the portraits they are taking (it will add almost nothing to the camera size)
- add faster storage (CFast 2.0 card) and use it on all cameras
- add a darn all axis articulated touch screen to help with easy focus and use it on all Sony cameras to make it really easy and cheap to mass produce
- add a standard battery that allows people to take 600-800 shots (it will only add 1inch to the camera size... still very pocketable)
- add QuickCharge 2.0/3.0 and USB charging so people can use their phone's charger or external USB batteries
... these are all such basic things that it is silly not to have them on a premium camera

Sure, this obsession for the smallest form factor is disappointing.
I'm sur there is also a market segment for beefier compact bodies.
LX100 is the only recent exemple. The old G series (G12-15-16) and Fuji X10-20-30 comes also to mind. They were successfull at that time.
