  • Meh. What's the point of spending a ton of money if your other photographer friends are not going to salivate?

  • I bought the X20 at $600 and have never ever looked back. It is an amazing camera. There are two areas in which I found it to excel:

    1. Street photography, where the camera is as unobstrusive as...

  • Excellent article --certainly it taught me a lot. From the many posts below it seems to have hit a real need. Thanks.

  • We need the android version

  • This camera is so underwhelming. Really, for $2,000 you have so many better choices and especially when it comes to lenses. 3.5 to 5.6's are kit lens territory, not serious photography tools

  • So... following Leica's journey from real camera to fashion accesory, Hasselblad --up until now the standard in large format photography-- has also become a fashion accesory and "certifies" cell...

    @Rastad - as I said, I tried them. My sister bought them. I found them really really bad. Sorry, but I am not buying that particular Nikon brand. And, no, the X20 is just not "pocketable" at ALL....

  • Oh... Liz Z. ... if I actually cared about your opinion, I might even feel remotely uneasy or something. But... truly... I couldn't care less. If you can't even recognize a mild joke, hey, your...

  • @MarcLee - it is academic now. I tried the GX1 and found the shutter lag horrible, so I purchased the Fuji X20 which has zero lag and great optics.

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    People complain about the usage too. My sister bought one (the one without the viewfinder, the J? V? Something like that) and it sucked major... major! The image quality was miserable, the screen...

    Just to be sure... if silent shutters are so important (and to me, they are), the Fuji X20 is silent, the Panasonic Lumixes are silent. Doesn't seem to be a big deal.

    Ecopix - with respect to Roland Barthes... really, so what? You could apply the phrase to any camera.

    The little Nikons are really not to be taken seriously and the market was highly reflective...

    But Kodak is out of business.

    Nikon is not. Canon is not. Sony is not. A bunch of other companies are not.

    So, whether they invented digital photography in 1975 or June 21st,...

  • @miwok and hinder... you guys ever hear of humor?

    Wow. Must be awful being you.

    As to my comment about framing and composing. My opinion, of course, but notice that ALL professional cameras have...

  • Commented on P1000155 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    meh... not that great. Not bad, but certainly not superb. Slightly better in quality than some smartphones today

  • Commented on P1000283 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Awful image quality! Concur.

  • This is such bad timing for Canon!!!!

    They remove the ONE thing that made the G-Series great: the viewfinder, offering one as an option and having the viewfinder increase the footprint of the...

  • This camera is a real game changer. My main objection (shared by many pros I know) was the lack of viewfinder. First, who wants to look like a soccer mom focusing and second, impossible to really...

  • Why are some people so focused on the past? Why does it matter that Kodak (or any other company) invented digital photography? That was a decade and a half ago. Since then, they haven't done...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    These little Nikons can't be taken seriously. A mild telephoto (10-30mm) with an aperture of 5.6 on the 30? Get real. It is just not competitive at all. The removal of the viewfinder, just to sell...
