"Kinda crappy" is this Canon promotion video. I am sure that lower ISO on A7S with S-log would bring better image. My opinion, of course...

dramatic dynamic range improvements = nearly as good dynamic range as Sony and Nikon

Samsung NX1 is still leading APS-C class in IQ...
But very close.

Wow, fake comparsion!
How long have you been working on it? NX1 has 28mpx, so you should make it a little bigger...
Everybody can check the real one in studio scene.

petr marek: I have mine already ...
NX1 and NX500 have really no competition in price/value/technology ...
Are some of the Samsung shareholders or top managers from rival companies to make such a brand damaging decision - give up when becoming respected leader in technology?

Technology, not sales... Check the NX1 sensor specification, autofocus, video codec etc...
Imagine Panasonic to give up after GH2, stepping out of camera business...

It´s very sad... With NX1 Samsung was finally born as a serious company for photo/videographers. And this baby with impressively fast evolution is killed before maturity...
Talented creative team of scientists and designers finally created in NX1 perfect photo/video camera, for me the best on consumer market. And a team of marketing "experts" is giving it up without even giving it proper chance instead of supporting their own child. Development was outstanding but marketing team simply fail to sell it. And this faulty team is giving it up for all company.
It´s a decision, which says verdict: Samsung doesn´t have the balls of self-confidence, it has marketing-confidence instead. What we can expect with this attitude? Camera for Homer Simpson?

On article 2015 Roundups: Fixed Prime Lens Cameras (231 comments in total)

The continuous denial of any full RGB sensor Sigma/Foveon camera for various funny reasons, especially in studio comparsion scene makes me laugh...
What will dpreview do, when future cameras will end up (and they will :)!) with layered sensors?
For now, dear photofriends, we can get insight into Quattro image quality at dpreview comparsion scene this way: select Pentax K-3 II with pixel shift...
Get it?:)

That´s nice. Now please make APS-H full color 3-layered sensor with RGB per pixel so I don´t need to bother any more with slow Sigma cameras with unusable autofocus to get ultimate image quality with natural tonality... 15 megapixels will be plenty, what counts is dynamic range and low light performance.
Thank you.

"..., I don't consider rangefinders to be Mirrorless cameras... ...packed with mirrors... ...we coined the phrase..."
Nonsens! The important difference between mirroless and SLRs is distance between lens and the sensor. It´s about relation lens/sensor(film) and specific image look (influences depth of field and also lens performance - sharpness, contrast etc...). Ranfinders are mirrorless with "optical tool for focusing".

On article Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal (814 comments in total)

Convergence, big deal... What a marketing article!
It´s just camcorder with relatively small sensor. Cameras like GH4, NX1 or A7s are more balanced with real covergence between photo and video, larger sensor and interchangeable lenses.
It´s really not about the shape or handle.

Is this guy serious? Chuck please, take a look at these cameras:
1) Sigma DP2 Merrill for ultimate pixel level image quality
2) Pentax 645 and Nikon D810 for high resolution image WITH great dynamic range and ISO performance
3) Samsung NX1 for video features and image quality
4) Panasonic GH4 for overall versatility without compromises and possibility to use any lens on M43 mount on mirrorless body
5) tiny Blackmagic PCC for ability to shoot 10-bit Prores and 12-bit Raw video
6) Sony A7S for magic ISO and dynamic range performance
Now tell me, do you think about your new pricey cameras? What are you going to offer?

Now do it with some up-to-date camera like Samsung NX1.
Thanks.

It´s not only about Dxo...
Canon could come with up-to-date video with HEVC h.265 codec, 4K, BSI APS-C sensor, 15 fps with tracking autofocus with 209 contrast points and 205 phase detection sensors, 153 of which are cross-type and more...
Let´s compare image quality:
