On article Olympus m.Zuiko 17mm F1.8 first impressions and samples (255 comments in total)

Very underwhelmed with the examples apart from the bored bloke with the beard shots, which show a use for this focal legnth at least.

faster than zooms, for those who must change lenses IMHO. 12mm a better bet .

On article Olympus announces Stylus XZ-10 enthusiast compact (198 comments in total)

Hmm, after a quick look at this and the price suggested, I think Olympus would have been better on doing an "epm" version of the larger XZ's to this type of price, or better yet, putting a fixed retracting lens onto the 16mpx mFT sensor, perhaps at a crop to a smaller mpx ( as some panasonic mFT's actually do)

In reply to:

arqomx: would like to see the noise performance for both XZ-2 and XZ-10. My XZ-1 doesn't fare well from ISO 800 and above >. < (though with f2.7 lens you'll find it seldom to crank the ISO more than 400)

Definetly looks a lot better on the newer XZ2 samples, , but remember it is f1.8 with IBIS so you do not need to crank up beyond 1200. Unless you are taking black cats on moonless nights of course.

Really nice shot, I guess this has been curve worked a little to an extended DR which is just right, near to what the eye would see. Congratulations on the win!!!

Dmitri, I thinked they fibbed about "No particular settings" as all these are OOC:

HDR mode on then, and not too bad a job if you like that sort of thing!

See also the whassit effect two along.

Couscousdelight: Smoothing is very strong, even at 100 iso : http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/reviewsamples/photos/2293688/pa210094?inalbum=olympus-xz-2-preview-samples
Check the boat at full res.

there is a strange texture in some backgrounds, while there is detail in the subjects suggesting some jpeg compression issue ( last portrait of the woman downloaded is an example of this) , and noise at higher ISO: but how does it compare with G15, X10 and other premium priced cameras? Nice colours OOC, good bokeh, good features....needs a shoot out vs Canon, LX7, XF1 etc!

Hmm, ticks a number of boxes for me on price, relative IQ to price and not least weather proofing. But how many lenses are weather proofed ?

In reply to:

marcuz: Should this be called "rangefinder style" mirrorless, as in the specs?
This is just yet one more tiny sensor plain mirrorless imho.

Although I don't like this system at all, it does take quite good images for the size of sensor and should allow for some fast sub f2 lenses which are optically up to par for Nikon while not being that large.

look forward to comparing this with the larger enthusiast compacts on file at DPR and the latest flock of Lx7 etc. Could be the back up camera for me!

Which is the best PP software for tablets now though? If it is best value for money on Android from the market then I would look there myself. iPad's resolution is tempting, but you are paying " premium poser price" for the glory of the bitten fruit logo.

In reply to:

Peiasdf: Very few comments. I guess it is not very exciting as it is just rehash of E-PL3 and E-PM1 with new sensor.

Should be cheaper as most parts are carried over from $400/$300 cameras.

Olympus did a great job at flogging the PEN series on an out dated sensor which was still bigger than all P&S at the time with better DR , tonal depth and mid level ISO to 800 and even.

Coupled to IBIS and the evolution to touch screen and multi core processors for super fast focusing, all they were waiting for was a better sensor.

In reply to:

oluv: seems to have exactly the same IBIS problems like E-PL3 and other olympus cameas. image P9140080 was taken at 1/160 but not a single point is really sharp.

i had the same with shutter speeds between 1/100 and 1/200, the IBIS was producing blur then. what a pity, that olympus hasn't fixed this, i mean this is already their 3rd or 4th camera generation!

fixed! These are enthusiast cameras, not POS!!!

Valentinian: what is the advantage this Pentax mirrorless camera has over the Pentax DSLRs ???

they have seen the future and it is mirrorles. toe in the water and educating their rather small audience of loyal buyers into the shape of non whippy-uppy things to come imho

Mirrorless are / will be cheaper to produce. Get used to it all! Pentax like Olympus before them are paving the way for bottom line on a future range of cameras.

On article Samsung doesn't deny Android-based camera (108 comments in total)
In reply to:

Atlasman: Gee, let me think here: let's take an OS than was designed from the ground up for mobile devices and graft it on to a camera.

" 'Our present platform is more than capable of delivering a robust Smart Camera experience to consumers and we will continue to evolve that platform.' "

Kind of agree: I haven't bothered with anything more than the rather sad "photoshop express", surprised then they put their name to it. Perhaps some android apps will get made for bigger files but I doubt the OS can handle it without falling over.
