On article Canon G1 X III vs. Sony Cybershot RX100 V (501 comments in total)

Welcome the competition but smaller size won. The RX100 fit in a pocket nicely, just like a phone.

snapa: As long as you have a recent i7 with at least 16MB's of fast RAM and a 256GB SSD, that is all you really need to PP any still images or video files. That is what I have and I don’t see a need to upgrade for a few years. Upgrading to the new i8 CPU is pretty much a waste of $, unless a few seconds of your life is worth it to you.

Now, if you only rely on adobe, who's fault is that? If you want faster post processing, start using Capture One :)

Each tile within an AMD chip has 8 cores. A workload that use 10 cores may present some problem since the memory sharing across tile to tile is slower.

Sdaniella: never underestimate the potential of chinese manufacturers, with their massive home marketbase, to ramp up quality to "absolute-top", as their high internal market volumes afford them extremely short fast (re-)design/revision cycles over others where volumes are so low, their redesign cycles are longer, and improvements come slowly

anyone observing speed of quality improvement of architectural/civil-engineering/urban-development (buildings, highways, infrastructure) and military tech in China ... knows they are mindboggling fast, and outsiders know full well this kind of massive market is a tech designer's heaven (many foreign tech companies happily cherish a foothold in this vast market ... many can prosper on this market alone, never mind needing to sell in "rest of world" = it's just dessert)

by gaining access to high-fast-short design cycle market like China, companies mature faster in their expertise, and can then fare better elsewhere globally

we all benefit in the end

your end may be different from your children's end. We should be worried.

nofumble: Folks, there is not a lot of difference between card brands. There are only a few flash memories manufacturer in the world, and a few companies making controllers. The major difference is the amount of testing. The expensive one passed functional and burn-in test. The cheaper one.. who knows. There are a lot of non-legitimate cards such as Sandisk, Lexar, Sony, etc sold on eBay. They could be real brand, just non-passing units. DO NOT BUY FROM EBAY OR NON LEGIT STORE.

Remember, Amazon does not guarantee the quality if you choose to buy from their 3rd party merchants.

Vince P: IBM thinkpad was being made by Chinese company Lenovo long before they bought the brand. It's still the most reliable laptop brand. Since Apple is made in China along with all flash memory it is not possible to predict how good the products will be.

My supplier told me Apple qualification test requirement is one of the toughest to pass.

Game changer = not taking feature from a cheaper model then put into a newer model.

beavertown: When will Apple release one too?

Apple uses Thunderbolt. Thunderbolt 3 will use the same USB-C connector, just run at 5GB/s.

The FF mirrorless is getting a lot of attention. Sorry for the M43 camp, they are stuck in 3rd gear.

The Fotodiox Canon adapter does not work very well on some lens with super fast USM motor. Hope they don't suffer the same problem with Nikon lenses.

Sony FE lenses cost an arm and leg. It is a no brainier that SamYang will target Sony mount first.
