Even to this day, Panasonic 1 inch

LX9 fastest F 1.4 lens
ZS100 10X zoom

still the best compact in 2017

piratejabez: Wanted the LX3, but waited for LX5, then followed up with LX7 and LX100. Now I'm anxiously awaiting the LX100 successor... what a great product line!

LX 100 has clearly been discontinued and no new model announced
than just like the GM MFT line can only mean one thing

They won't announce it officially. Yes is a shame buy I have heard LX100 is not selling well
Lost GM line is a greater loss in my opinion. That 10X zoom 1 inch is pretty amazing and can replaced LX100

marc petzold: I want this Sensor Size (1/1.63", 1/1.7") into a smartphone, as i said more than twice.
1" is too huge, only Panasonic did this, with mixed results. Current 1/2.5" to 1/2.3" sensors are virtually a bad joke in terms of IQ - and rely therefore on heavy asic-processing (JPEGs) inside the smartphone. DR, Tonality is also nothing great onto these very small sensors.

The LX3 was way good into it's heyday (the D90 came out into 2008, too) and the only real successor into my eyes since then is the LX100, but this model could use an upgrade (LX200) anytime soon....

early CMOS is garbage compare with CCD
but current APS-C , 1 inch, full frame CMOS seem to be OK

Aroart: Best thing about Apple is that they work, best thing about Samsung is awesome specs and are usually free after about 6 months..

Have u used Samsung phone
not work like u said?

I am not a camera phone person but the detail capture in my S6 pics sometimes surprise me
Only ISO 100 thought, not high ISO pics

for phone camera, Google pixel real time combining pictures show the future
don't seem to be as successful as Apple iPhone

eno2: What can you conclude from reading the article?

The Apple Iphones are hugely overpriced!

not a secret
they got huge margin, anyone don't know that?
Look at the stock price and Warren Buffet bought huge amount of stocks (not iPhone)

Jefftan: I never understand if anyone is slightly interested in real photography
a dirt cheap RX100 first generation get u a 1 inch sensor and 4 times zoom
weight 240 gram

use a tiny sensor phone?
Those are the majority and don't really care photography

It is correct that camera companies are targeting real photographer
but with the sad reality of increasing price to compensate for much lower volume
after all maybe 90-99% of people are not photographer

Those said they got a new phone because of how good the camera is
I don't know if they are real stupid or just joking

Another problem is cheap model don't really get promoted because that is not where the profit is
Sony is promoting RX 100 V which is $1000
almost no one know RX100 1 exist and cost $450

Or Canon G9X I now $400 G9X II $530 (new camera price)
Almost no one know these low cost option exist that is
lightweight, high IQ, have zoom, cheap

Really sad to see real camera is seen to be obsolete by most

camera company partly to blame as they only care expensive model which create short term profit
but they are short sighted as the current situation would threaten their long term survival

The cheap sub $500 about 200 gram 1 inch sensor is they should really promote if they care about long term
but I know that won't happen

"That may be true in daylight, low light phone photos are another story."

U got it, with DXO Prime the dirt cheap RX100 1st generation can get decent photo in ISO 3200 , try that with phone
also the 4x zoom lens

but most don't care real photography, that is a fact

DenWil: Elements 15 was 39$ and the free ACR update took a few minutes- didn't even need to sign in.
There are options depending on what you need.

Thanks for reply
That means if I have thousands of RAW to convert to jpeg from a trip and don 't have time to individual adjust
$60 Photoshop Elements can use latest Adobe Camera Raw to do it for me

That's really good news if true.
Thanks

NAwlins Contrarian: Lightroom 6.9 is also out, for those of you (like me) who refuse to go the subscription route. I downloaded and installed the update an hour or so ago. Now if I just has a GFX 50S on hand to test it with ...

Thanks

My guess is Nikon 1 may not be dead after all
and that is a good thing

look at the 180 gram 80-300mm equivalent lens
that alone should justify the the Nikon 1 system

There is a place for 1 inch sensor if u look at the IQ of newest RX 100
not everyone like heavy camera, especially in Asia huge demand for small camera

If Nikon 1 is dead it is a real shame but I think it is not dead

sh10453: It's a good developer once you have learned it.
Strange Interface, and a relatively long learning curve.

How to learn?
video? English tutorial?
