  • Hm, the lens are similar if not identical on these. Sharpness is barely ok, an old panasonic LX3 would provide far sharper images at around the same price. As for the sonys, buy a TX1 or rather a TX5.
  • Buy used cameras, avoid using unnecessary add-ons like cables, additional batteries, straps, bags, grips etc, and avoid replacing what you have just because a newer camera was released. With that ...
  • Needed for what? Apart from a few 4K home clips, i don't have a single 4K movie in my library.

    And 8K.....forget about it.

  • When you buy a lens, go to a store and test 3-4 of them, and pick the one that's best for you. One thing they don't say(according to what i remember reading once) is that the camera(dslr) needs to ...
  • No, i think it's a fine painting/pop art piece.
  • Created discussion thread The era of overprocessed images is here
    More and more images are overprocessed, with maximised contrast, color vibrancy, sharpness etc. It's all about making a statement, with punchy colours, HDR treatment and so forth. First there were ...
  • Created discussion thread Panny users are living the life
    On the sony subforum users are busy quarreling about which rx camera is the best, on the canon subforum people post images from decades-old cameras while the other compact subforums are esentially ...

    You want macro for cheap? Try an olympus XZ-2 or panasonic LX5. Loved the olympus, it was a real camera, as far as compacts go. It was able to do macro images at full zoom, which is very rare. But ...
  • You were unlucky, but you are comparing the sharpness of a PRO ILC lens with that of a large zoom pocket camera and expect them to be equal? You paid for the technology and the small size first, ...
  • For some reason your 17-50 is not nearly as sharp as i would have expected, my sony rx100 pocket camera does a better job than that. I think you should try another 17-50 or a new lens. Something is ...
  • Never heard of Gsm Arena, huh? Providing with mobile reviews since....at least 15 years? Both video and written reviews.... https://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_6230-review-3p4.php
  • Dunno, but a compact camera starts crumbling after about a decade at the most, whereas a slr/dslr can be kept for at least twice as much. I also thought the RX1 was a camera built to last for a ...
  • Excellent job repairing the old camera, but when did prices started to go up? I see that some cameras become more expensive as they become harder to get. Example, an olympus e520/e420 with lens is ...
  • I like the crow and the last one. Getting good images with birds is just plain difficult, the few that end up being good are worth admiring.
  • Replied in Wow....
    Good to see some people actually use their cameras instead of just talking about them.
  • Use this as reference: https://alikgriffin.com/best-memory-cards-for-the-sony-rx100-v/ You want an exact figure, you will not get it. No camera/memory card combo delivers identical results with ...
  • Replied in Used Sony HX30V
    The sony hx30 is a nice camera for that price, check deals on ebay.
  • You don't get it, the other user already told you the memory card is faster than the camera, meaning the speeds you are getting now are not going to get any faster on this camera. Analogy time. You ...
  • Replied in Yes but
    How much faster should the AF on these cameras be, considering some of them already have huge zooms and very good AF, tracking etc? Longer battery life? No, because that's reserved for pro ILC bodies.
  • Technically speaking all evfs flicker.... Because they are screens, most of them have a very low refresh rate, lag etc. Some models have evfs so bad they can't realistically be used... example the ...
