  • So sorry to hear what happened :( :( I really fear same kind of situation. That's why I got one copy on my regular computer, one on an external hard drive and third copy in a cloud. To me years of ...
  • Let me guess, you're a caucasian male? These things matter little until they hit home. Very foolish of Nikon. You can brush it off and hope no one notices but that's just poor PR and dumb. Nikon's ...
  • Replied in Light L16
    I hope this camera gets a thorough review soon. The technology is so different that it's difficult to compare L16 to other cameras just by looking at the specs. The picture of New York which was ...
  • Replied in Light L16
    Good to know, I didn't know that. Yes, as you say - a second camera. That's why I feel a little iffy about L16's marketing material which says "DSLR quality". I guess they could argue that because ...
  • Replied in Light L16
    I downloaded the original and this photo looks excellent. There's an amazing amount of detail when zoomed into pixel level. In this case, the camera performed well. Light L16 has lots of potential ...
  • Replied in Light L16
    I saw a short video demonstrating it. It was very cool.
  • Replied in Light L16
    It makes sense. Stitching becomes more difficult when objects are closer to the camera and software can't quite figure out how to overlap the images properly. I think DOF control is the most ...
  • Replied in Light L16
    Where can I see this comparison? Here's a 100% crop of L16 photo. I doubt photos would look like this out of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. See full resolution for strong noise everywhere. Would you care ...
  • Replied in Light L16
    At least we agree that blowing up to 1:1 is a bad idea. I disagree 99% people will never blow up to 1:1, cropping the photo afterwards is a great tool to recompose an image and sometimes you need ...
  • Replied in Light L16
    True, not exactly bright daylight but the sky still illuminates everything - looks like the lights may have just been turned on. Are you serious? You think pixel quality and resolution don't ...
  • Replied in Light L16
    In my earlier posts I was skeptical if the sample shots are taken with L16, mainly because there's decent bokeh such as these https://www.flickr.com/photos/153737195@N07/33882109782/in/pool-3541818 ...
  • I was thinking about the same too. Let's see what happens. IMO they should just scale it back to 24-90mm or maybe even 24-72mm to keep optics smaller. But APS-C on a point and shoot with a zoom ...
  • Amazing specs if true!!
  • That's what I was thinking too. Why invest major money developing a 1.5" sensor when you can get a proven M43 sensor from Sony that's close to 1.5" anyways. Allows shrinking the camera and optics ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon G1 X Mark III
    http://www.canonrumors.com/canon-powershot-g1-x-mark-ii-i-on-the-way/ Anyone else excited? After SONY RX100 changed the game in point and shoots, I've enjoyed my Canon G7 X immensely in the last ...
  • Replied in Light L16
    Really? So their sensor is 24 times smaller than APS-C sensor. With that size, you'll get zero bokeh unless you rely on software based bokeh which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Low light ...
  • Replied in Light L16
    So far they've posted one photo in low light condition at somewhat fast shutter speed - the one in London gallery with people moving. It looks suspiciously clean. I'm not sure if I believe those ...
  • I like the flash on my XE-1 even though I use it rarely. At least it's there when I need it. I use it to add just a little more exposure to my photos when necessary. I turn it to the lower ...
  • That's a nice story. Sometimes eBay protects the buyers a little too much. Sometimes I don't receive the item within promised time period and I report it and often get my money back. Not really ...
  • @Chris2210 it has to be software based DOF. If you look at this image

    In terms of APS DSLR, that looks kind of like 35mm f/2.0...
