Sergey Borachev: Has anyone compared these tough cameras with a waterproof smartphone in terms of IQ? I know these are much tougher, but for casual.travel by the average people, not divers and mountaineers, these must have noticeably better IQ to sell.. Otherwise people will just get a tough case for their smartphones.

Example. A Samsung S7 has a 1/2.5 inch sensor and it does 4K.

It's time for these tough cameras to go 1 inch.

On article Video: is the Canon EOS M6 good for vlogging? (13 comments in total)

Thanks, Carey. You seem to be talking to someone sitting on my shoulders, i.e. you are looking over my head. I think that may be because of the blocked LCD screen made you look further up, towards the upper part of the screen. Or is it something else, like looking at a separate or higher monitor?

Dante Birchen: So now everybody buy a HTC until next week when some other phone scores 91

DXO needs to start using 0.5 points to distinguish the new cameras. These DXO scores are so precise!

On article 2017 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500 (344 comments in total)

DPR - "We've seen how the X-Trans version of this sensor offers good image quality in both JPEG and Raw in low light, and the X-A3 is likely to follow suit. "

But this is a different sensor! I'm disappointed with this comment on the winner of this review, the Fuji X-A3. Was the image quality tested in any way, or is this opinion based on specs and hands-on impressions?

I'm sure that 1 DXO point out of 89 makes all the difference, so much so that it is necessary to state clearly in the title that the S8 is not at the top. DXO has spoken!

Sergey Borachev: I think these borderless displays are simply dumb. So are the ultra think bodies. Why not just a small border for more protection, and slightly thicker body for more battery life, and a removable SDcard, plus standard earphone plugs for compatibility (in case you lose the wireless phones). I don't need my phone as jewellery. If I have to spend big bugs for a phone, I would rather have the extra money for the special borderless display etc spent on the battery, functionality and real phone features.

nothing new to offer?! Tougher design, to avoid all the glass breaking, or, avoid buying a case which means even more bulk than a thicker camera. More thickness also means larger battery or more battle life, to avoid charging during the day. And there are heaps more that can be added or enhanced without just exposing the glass panel, like a design to allow batter changes, to accept memory cards, and have a better or faster lens. All these can be achieved by just adding a couple of millimetres to the phone!

Sergey Borachev: The FujI A3 is so much better for just $50 more! It has larger lenses and no 4K, but seems better in every other way, including 24 MP and larger sensor, natural JPEG colour, superior IQ, much longer battery life, solid build, twin control dials, video with exposure control, built in camera grip, much better flash sync speed and hot shoe.

For the targeted buyers, the natural JPEG colour should be very important. And for any of those casual shooters who do dabble in RAW and find its XTRAN sensor tough, there's the cheaper X10 with its Bayer sensor. Unfortunately DPR do not review these really interesting Fuji compacts.

You are right. The A3 does have a Bayer sensor. Even better.

Something odd in these photos. Unnatural.

Sergey Borachev: It seems to me that the biggest problem that Sony faces with this camera has nothing to do with what the can do (which is right up there with the best), but with all the badmouthing from threatened Canikon owners. And there are many of them.

If you are not convinced at this time, then look to the future. In another generation or two, the A9 II or III will be much more polished and there will be more lenses. Do you still see the Canikon systems irreplaceable?

In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: I will wait till the majority of people have 4K TV first before getting any 4K monitor.

I believe that if your technique is up to scratch, then your photos will impress without being viewed on a 4K monitors.

There are always those who impress by using the largest sensor cameras, taking super high regulation photos, or taking shots at 1/100000 sec, 1200mm f/2 lens, etc but is that technique or equipment?

It depends on the people looking at your photos. What kind of monitors they have to watch your photos on.

Why is this news? Older models in technology products lose their attraction very fast. Companies can choose to either dump them in the clearance bin at great discounts or, as in this case, to maintain the high price and sales of the current model, scrap them.

Fuji seems to prefer to move forward than holding years of stock of previous years models.and wait till they are worthless before dumping.

On article Hands-on with the Panasonic Leica 8-18mm F2.8-4 (160 comments in total)

Just waiting to see if it delivers. In particular, I have these 2 questions:

1. Does it cause purple spots on Olympus camera? And

2. Is the distortion going to be a problem?

If no problem with these, then the only question left is - is there still any reason to buy any of the 7-14mm lenses?

Amazing! Panasonic is fine with 20MP in this tiny 1/2.3" sensor camera, but only used an old 16MP sensor in the G85. Can the G85 really threaten the GH5?
