  • Replied in RX100 mk1
    It could be a little bigger and still not be a deal killer. No one thought Canon G3X III would be so slim. Engineers have been able to come up with lenses we thought impossible few years ago - ...
  • Replied in RX100 mk1
    I'd be interested in hearing what people here think is going to be the "new wave" taking portable cameras to the next level? 1" cameras clearly took everything to the next level. Canon G1X III was ...
  • Replied in Phone
    I certainly take photos with my smart phone but I don't expect much from them. I'm not sure why I keep hearing so much that smart phone cameras are almost as good as "real" cameras when they're ...
  • What's your drink of choice tonight?
  • True if that's important then there's G5X. Less pocketable though.
  • Read: 100mm f/2.8 has ability to create decent bokeh in certain situations, 100mm f/4.9 not so much. This is something that SONY RX100 lovers tend to "forget". Here's a nice example: https://www.dp ...
  • My G7X images are pin sharp but why not throw in some Canon hate, it's always very constructive. Sony images will certainly be bokeh free at 100mm due to pitiful aperture if that's the kind of ...
  • If you like SONY's 28-100mm f/1.8-4.9, you would REALLY like Canon G7X's 24-100mm f/1.8-2.8.
  • Replied in Ken Rockwell?
    Feel free to disagree. It's my gut sense that more and more articles are becoming more and more positive to a point where I don't like it. Hope you're ok with that? Have a great night!
  • Two favourites: Canon G7X - small enough to fit jean pockets. Very good image quality and one of my favourite cameras, EVER. Samsung NX500 - fits your pocket, just not easily. When I travel my main ...
  • Replied in Ken Rockwell?
    I feel recently everything he reviews is great. Even cheap stuff. I mean, when at the end of the article there are affiliate links to buy products, it makes sense business wise to praise ...
  • I think what we need to realize here is that yes, smartphone photography is on the rise but it's not a bad thing. The more photographers, the better no matter what the level is. Eventually those ...
  • Sounds like you would really like communism. If you can't afford something don't call it expensive. It just makes you look poor. And no I don't need a tax break. I'm doing great financially.

  • People who work 9-5 jobs go around accusing companies being greedy and complain about things being expensive. Once you start your own company and price your products, a reality check happens and...

  • Cellphone was the proper platform for L16 in the first place and that's where the technology already is and is being migrated to. It can deliver interesting results in that realm for sure - as ...
  • I never said I don't keep the original resolution image. Your mind can stop boggling.
  • Also, the way you perceive the photos vary by time of the day and environment. It's happened to me more than once that I process my photos late at night, to a point where they look good to me. ...
  • https://letsenhance.io is amazing IMO
  • I also struggle with this. I'm the kind of photographer that almost never prints anything. Last time I printed anything was my wedding photos 6 years ago. I personally optimize images for my ...
  • FUJIFILM GFX 50S is $6,500 and same resolution as L16 (at 2 magical focal lengths). Except that Fuji's pixel quality is 1000x better than L16 in terms of dynamic range, noise and everything else....
