On article Feisty upstart: Hands-on with the Fujifilm X-T20 (263 comments in total)
In reply to:

villagranvicent: m43 is doomed.

M4/3 has very limited high ISO capabilities. At ISO 3000 the Fuji is fine, most m4/3 don't do great at 1200. You can use that to compensate, with the advantage of shooting moving subjects well without flash.

zodiacfml: Nice film simulation modes. I hope they have something to compete against the Ricoh GR as a slim but APSC powerhouse.

yes the GR has a sharper lens. But the skin tones of people with the GR are horrible, ashen, sick looking. All reviews criticize GR jpegs, wrong colors. All reviews praise the Fuji X100. Look at google samples of high ISO from GR, yuck. For pictures of faces, the GR is inferior. Also at 28mm the X100 is better at 35mm.

In reply to:

kobakokh: This Fijifilm has just one small problem: lens is much less sharper then 28mm lens of Ricoh GR. And also if Fuji will add to AF system something like Ricoh's Snap focus, its will be absolutely great camera. That Snap focus is way better then maybe any focus system in the world...

Ricoh GR produces skin tones that are aches, people look ill. Makes everybody age 30 years. All reviews mention that GR jpegs have the wrong colors, need work, and are inferior. Aside from those little things, GR is great.

Impulses: DFD, 4K, and the flip screen alone are big incentives to move up from my GM1... Might wait until it's a bit cheaper, as Panasonic bodies are prone to in short order, but I'm definitely glad Panasonic hasn't given up on smaller bodies AND isn't trying to price them up into the one grand range right off the bat. I'm sure many will bemoan the lack of an EVF, but personally I use my GM1 just as much as my E-M5 II.

GM5 has a viewfinder!

In reply to:

rob579: Since this would not be "my backup camera, because my main camera is a blah-blah", I wanted to be sure I got more bang for my meager buck. I missed a longer zoom, plus the video quality is disappointing, so I moved on. Still looking, but maybe an Elph 360 or Sony WX350 will do.

ZS100 focuses poorly, even after signaling focus is ready. ZS100 skin tones are sickly, compared to Canon making people look great. ZS100 EVF is a little torture.

photo perzon: Sony RX100 skin tones. Too blanched white. People look better with Canon G7Xii. More tanned. People are now asking me for reprints, jpegs emailed, giving me compliments with the G7Xii. Never happened with my RX100, iii, v.

Just moving my iMac Photos to LR is a nightmare. The LR tutorial books over 1000 pages. No thank you. Editing RAWS have a lot of comments, it is never easy.

On article Camera Roundups updated for the holidays (46 comments in total)

I don't get it. Panasonics offer pathetic skin tones. People look like sick zombies. Seems people will accept horrible IQ in exchange for 4K and sharpness.

When I replaced my LX100 and RX100III for the Canon G7Xii, family members who barely comment on my pictures asked for reprints, emailed jpegs, it was like suddenly they loved the pictures, People look great, skin tones are like real life.

The ZS100 can barely focus.

Looks like m4/3 is dead.

Maybe Nikon 24-85 will provide good jpegs and also EVF, bounce flash, and good hi ISO.

On article Olympus PEN E-PL8 First Impressions Review (111 comments in total)

The exciting part of the PL8 is the past. Means they did not kill the PL line. To me the portability of the PL7/8 makes is a jacket friendly product, the larger Olys are not pocket friendly and require a purse. At a party the PL7/8 looks like a P&S, you don't look like a photographer. I modified the flash so it can tilt and bounce by cutting into it at the back with a dremmel. When needed the VF4 viewfinder is the largest in the market by far. A true joy to use, and tiltable. Much larger than the other Olys.

On article Google Pixel XL real-world sample gallery (103 comments in total)

The reach of x2 is great, but indoor shots are too slow like 5s is there away to speed it? Will raw help indoor shots? How to do it? The X1 is great but x2 blurry.

On article Nikon reportedly eliminating 1000 jobs in Japan (518 comments in total)

Japan is just like the USA. Jobs are being moved to China and Vietnam. Those do not care about climate change at all. The elite in US and Japan need to step in and provide, taxing more, making all dependent on socialist handouts, designed to raise socialist votes. Capital is fleeing USA and Japan, to China. This will be Japan's next 50 year socialist mistake, and the US's first.

In reply to:

Richard Kwon: My first was a Canon AE-1 in 1983 during middle school. My father bought it for me when we traveled in Europe. That's how I got started in Photography. It seems like it was 100s of years ago...

Same here, the AE-1

In reply to:

Mariano Pacifico: This is really getting very very interesting .... let's wait
Canon Powershot G7x Mark 1 was introduced Sept 14, 2014, Mark II on February 26, 2016 ... 2017 is just around the corner Canon will introduce Mark III.

They got to, else, they will end up like Nikon that was dragging their feet to digital age ... will there be a Canon smartphone?

Yes Canon is old fashioned. I used the RX100 for years the I, the III, and never got compliments. I purchased a Canon G7Xii and suddenly my pictures were admired and thanked for. The Canon colors made many people in my family go out of their way to compliment, to ask me to print them, to send them the files in different formats. People do not have the washed out white look of Sony, they have deeper skin tones, more realistic and striking. The Canon feels and sounds like a real camera. I was fully expecting the G7Xii to be a mistake, and now it is my favorite. The Fuji X70 is also magical, but a prime camera.

In reply to:

Jefftan: The best pocket camera is Ricoh GR II
not this

Or get a Panasonic GM1/5 with 14mm F2.5 pancake lens
or get a A5100 with Sony 20mm F2.8

there are lots of tricks like slow motion video
but bottom line in terms of IQ , it is a very small sensor camera

Those 3 cameras provide inferior portrait skin tones. Panasonic, Sony A5100 and Ricoh GR II makes people look leathery, grey, old and unhealthy.

If you want great skin tones, get the Canon G7Xii, of the prime Fuji X70 (or any other Fuji, the X-A2 is the size of the Sony A5100), or a Nikon. Those have true to like colors.

The light in those pictures is stage light. Poor setup to evaluate.
