santamonica812: I can't imagine the consumer who would need/want a $1,000 camera with these features. I mean, I guess if someone REALLY doesn't want a DSLR camera with interchangeable lenses . . .

a $1000 camera will cost $500 in 3 years and will still be just as good... Sony still sells the original RX100 you know... the mk3 is the sweetest deal right now, there's no reason to spend twice as much to get a marginally better camera.

mcslsk: LR 6.0 serves me well. I don't need any additonal features nor cloud storage. All I would like to see is support for new cameras and lenses. To pay for that on a monthly basis is a rip off. Will see how far DNG-onverter gets me.

@Eric OS support is not the issue. You can still run 20 years old software on a Windows 10 as long as it does not need any low-level access to the hardware. In the worst case scenario you could run a VM with an ancient unsupported OS and LR inside.

It's the new camera/lens support that forces you to upgrade LR.

Triplet Perar: I never used Lightroom, in any version. Should I switch to it?
I find output from my photo equipment produces such results I can use simplest tools available to make any small adjustments, if at all.

What do you do with your files then ? Open the embedded JPEG preview and print that ?

Because otherwise you won't get anything anywhere close to what you saw on your camera without a RAW processor. What exactly are those "simplest tools" you mentioned ?

LessMirrored19: Why DSLRs lenses are heavy compared to mirrorless lenses ?

heavy is good, heavy is reliable.. and if it does not work, you can always hit him with it

umm, what's the point ?

wlad: RJ45 ??? what the hell for ? wireless can go up to a couple of hundred of Mbps, why wired ? Is this supposed to stream the video directly ?

@notime: the very first sentence from your link:

The good news is that it doesn't have to suck, if you build it out properly.

I've specifically written Mbps, can't you read ?
If your wireless performance is "theoretical", get a network engineer to upgrade your network.

wlad: €1200 for a P&S is just ridiculous

umm, the difference between a 1" sensor and a modern APS-C sensor is roughly the same as between a cell phone camera and a 1" P&S... it has nowhere near the dynamic range or the low read noise of the larger sensor

On article 2016 Roundup: 4K action cameras (100 comments in total)
In reply to:

cosinaphile: i find it sad that these cameras are one of the few growth areas in photo hardware...while point and shoots are decimated by overused crappy phonecams
... im sure many dont share my dismay , but some , I think, may..

id like to see more larger sensor compacts with as close to 1 inch sensors as possible
x30 sized or better even the decent 1\1.7 ...1.8 type like the lx5 had ... its past time for a curved sensor in compacts that would drastically reduce cost size and complexity of optics for such machines ....

tiny sensor cams .. action\ waterproof or not\cellphones and then m4\3 or apsc

that a gulf in sensor goodness ... a camera catagory being slowly being ignored toward possible extinction

at least enthusiast level sensor cams still exist from nikon fuji canon olympus sony and panny [ who did i miss] im hoping more people discover this type of machine and it does not follow regular point and shoots into oblivion .

well, those "crappy phonecams" are obviously good enough for most people, so it's pretty much down to m43/aps-c or a phone

I can't remember when was the last time I used my Nikon 1. There's simply no reason to use it. I'll take my D7000 if I really want a decent quality. Anything smaller (sensor wise) makes absolutely no sense.

ZJ24: It looks like a good device. However, every time I read a Dxo One ad with that kind of hyperbole -"professional quality", "pro-quality camera", "professional shoot" - WOW guys, I'm sure you bring the same balanced assessment to your reviews of the products of other manufacturers products.

"Pro quality" is obviously an entirely empty and meaningless statement now.

@David Zamora looks like every backlit cellphone photo I have ever taken... blown sky, underexposed shadows, you totally killed the dynamic range in post processing

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice picture and all, but it's not really a good example of what the camera is capable of.

Yeah, you guys seem very new in the action cam market.

not calling it a 4K camera when in fact it's just a low definition camera would be a good start

there's no 4K - the resulting image will always be low definition - no matter what device you use to view it - as long as you only have 2 eyes, you will only see low definition footage from this camera

Sannaborjeson: Such poor quality jpegs at 100%... makes it totally impossible to make any opinion on the lens.

Also, why don't you hire a pro photographer for such samples? Only bearded guy is ok while the rest of the photos are thoughtless and of no value.

wouldn't say "thoughful", but that's the only photo with a half-decent light, the rest is pretty terrible
