The Foveon sensor produced images offer to user an easy, practically lossless and quite reliable interpolation of 250% far better than any other sensor. Great sensor for items with delicate texture and generally for studio work.

In reply to:

scottcraig: Undoubtably there are some genuine concerns for the safety of persons such as photojournalists who need to protect sensitive images. However one should consider the negative impact it can have which can include a significant price increase in camera models for average photographer or professional who has no need to encrypt their images via camera. Instead I would urge such persons/journalists to take the necessary measures to download and encrypt their sensitive data using the tools already available. To make such a request from camera manufacturers is in my opinion reflects an unwillingness to take full responsibility for securing their own data. What we need to understand here is any act to protect our privacy or that of the persons we work with cannot be dependent on any one piece of hardware or software but rather by engaging in sound practices ourselves and simple common sense.

Just saying.

Additional cost could never exceed $1 in the factory, i.e $5-10 in self price unless otherwise suggested from marketing guys...

Superb tool. And with an interesting design as well.
I would love DPR to make a real life IQ test with this cam comparing to Pentax and Olympus models which having the ability to produce hires images, just for the sake of it.

On article Ultimate OM-D: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Review (1336 comments in total)

I guess it is too funny to read comments from guys who can produce fine images with their smartphones so great that can be printed in respected mags, the same time that other guys claim that only FF sensors are capable for producing technically high IQ images. Mind you that a typical mag's double spread dimension needs 12-14 Mp pic file.
I also wonder how many guys out there can tell the difference of a pic printed in a mag full page format, shot with a SMFT or a FF sensor...

On article 2016 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500 (267 comments in total)

I strongly dislike the absence of VF in a cam, but I have to admit that shooting via a screen has dramatically reduced the amateurs pix with a head in the bottom and a sky all over the rest of the frame. Don't u agree..?

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10/LX15 Review (396 comments in total)

I think the problem with this niche is the potential buyer. I mean that apart of the minority of enthusiasts that really used and still using these cams to their extend, a lot of people bought these cams as a cam to have. These people are numerous comparing to the enthusiasts, so manufacturers tend to satisfy their habits and modus operandi. So instead of having cams with 4x bright lenses, viewfinder, a supporting flash unit and hot shoe, articulating screen, mic jacks and 12-14 Mp sensors, advanced video tools palette and ergonomical robust sealed bodies, manufacturers oblige to the wider audience preferences thus delivering non enthusiast photogs products. Who in turn I find it difficult to pay $1200 for a tool that is not aimed in people's vanity and fashion trends.

In reply to:

NWT: Surprised that "lack of a viewfinder" is no longer an issue for DPR.

Pls read the comment in conclusion page
..."Good for Enthusiast photographers who can live without a viewfinder..."

Is it just a roundup? Really?

I like the cam, I cannot practically see any differences from LX100, but Leica deserves a big bravo for selling a $3 cap for $59.
I think that all manufacturers do the same for some accessory parts but Leica transformed it to art!
