There is few third partie lenses, and what Tamron do is a simple copy of the Panasonic, and without OIS. Not impress at all. Why not doing a 12~150 with OIS, something different from the Panasonic/Olympus ?
Good luck to Samsung, to sell, they must first made their product available. There is no NX1 on amazon.fr and even no mirrorless samsung at all on digitphoto.
The only complains is that lense doesn't exist in Pentax mount. Image taken in portrait orientation seems worse than the ones in landscape orientation.
capanikon: Eh. Canikon mirrorless is gonna crush Sony whenever they get around to taking mirrors seriously.
Canikon serious mirrorless ? Maybe in a a year or two, but why on earth they switch to mirrorless ? They have good dslr from beginner to pro, with a vast set of lenses, they upgrade their camera every years and sells them well. BTW They already have mirrorless cameras, with some lenses. It seems that making new lenses for a new system it not that easy.
AdamT: It`ll never win a beauty contest, the A7 series always had the appearance of the EVF hump stuck on as an afterthought but this looks like something is missing on one side .. whatever , IBIS is a good move if it works as well as Oly's 5 Axis does
yes, it looks like a lego camera, with a body, a grip and an evf glue together without a global design :)
sbansban: "Electric" level??????
The camera send you an electric shock when it's level. No need to look at the screen, great improvment ;)
Hubertus Bigend: I wonder how a smallish EVF with 462 x 346 effective RGB pixels can be "respectable" for a camera that offers 24 MP, let alone so many years after the first mirrorless camera has appeared on the market. Even the best EVF available today still lacks the clear image of a good optical SLR finder that allows precise manual focus without the nuisance of having to switch into a zoom-in mode. But an EVF like the current Olympus finder and probably the Fuji X-T1 finder, too, is at least a step in the right direction. New electronic finders should improve on that, not deteriorate.
Maybe because less and less people use EVF to compose ?Recently, i go to the Eiffel Tower, young use phone, their parent use compact camera, grand pa use dslr and use a view finder, japanese use either phone or mirroless. And many photographer using camera with viewfinder compose with the big lcd screen. It's always strange to see people shooting with dslr at arms length :)Me ? I use a GM1, nice IQ, not so great ergonomics and LCD hard to see in sunny day.
JABB66: in the article and in the main page...
"that >>shaves<< precious..."
Because it's a slick solution :)
Eleson: This puzzles me. The differences between this one and the mk2 are big enough to warrant a new name and to sell them in parallel.Why mk3?
The just follow canon naming with 5d mk1, mk2, mk3
Paul_B Midlands UK: A huge seller for sure. Bang on. Never so many positive remarks for a new product I'm stunned! Ok no articulating screen or time lapse as pointed out and it's not gold plated either. Great work Sony,I hope the firmware is a LOT better than my NEX5n.
for time lpases, there is an app for that in the play memories apps.
racketman: Amazon will be hoping the appeal by the FAA is unsuccessful assuming they intend to go ahead with their drone delivery service.
For driving a truck, you need a license. And if youy run out of gas, the truck simply stopped, and don't fall on your head :)
jackspra: Nikon cant even match the little GH3 video specs.
it's troll day ?
George Veltchev: I think a more dressy packaging is needed ... this one is more suitable for a two-door fridge ... even Samsung can do it better !
There is one big advantage with an anonymous package, it limit robbery. I hate amazon package with the big amazon name all around.
dougster1979: The camera is missing an Aps-c sensor, viewfinder and sd card slots. Nikon really needs to hire some new staff!!!!!
You know what ? It already exists, and it's call a Nex-6 :)
joeyv: Faster than even the fastest pro dslrs. Unmatched telephoto reach w/ ft1 adapter. A unique tool that gives photographers new capabilities. And it all fits in the palm of your hand. (Well, not quite.) if you can't see the possibilities, you sure are missing something.
It's like a sport car, high price, unique possibilities, but not for every body and every day use :)
photogeek: After brilliant cameras like E-M1 and X-T1, this must be some kind of joke. Nikon, news flash for you: people won't buy a flaming bag of poo just because it says "Nikon" on it.
it's Nikon, they buy :)
RichRMA: The camera has some impressive specs, but the same thing 4/3rds was criticized for, small sensors, is even more constrictive here. Nikon might be onto something; the whole idea of mirror-less was small-size and the 1 system achieves this. It'll be interesting to see if they can compete with the more mature Olympus and Panasonic systems.
The gm1 have a bigger sensor, small size, a 24-64 kit zoom and i bought one for 620€ new And it's already a lot of money.
Stanny1: A 10-30mm yields a minimum of 27mm? What does it take to go to REAL wide-angle? My NEX-3 has 18mm at very low cost. That's why you don't want anything less than a APS-C sensor. Rephrased question: Why anything less than an APS-C sensor?" In the case of the V1-V3, why should I pay more for a tiny sensor? If you want a small sensor, get a cheap compact.
18mm on APS-C is 27mm in "real" FF format. For compact wide angle, the GM1 is a good choice with a 24-64 compact kit zoom. Quite heavy distortion at 24mm, however.
I don't really like this new style of treatment, desaturate, overexposed sky and blueish tint.
rtogog: How to hold this camera when taking picture?
with your hands ;)
