David Zamora: Interested in the grain simulation and improved focusing.

"grain simulation", there so little noise with X-Trans that Fuji needs to add some noise to mimic Bayer sensor :)

OliverGlass: @DPR
Though it's a minor thing--- how is the rendition of greens/foliage now with the new sensor and processing?

A problem ? where ? I shot green chrismas tree and process with lightroom, and foliage render nicely. I try silkypix, rawtherape, lightzone, and there is little difference at 100% viewing, but when reduce to Flickr post, all images look the same.

Bueche: Does the x-trans III have the same devastating effect on everything that's bright green/yellow/orange, just as earlier versions of x-trans?

I have no problem at all with Lightroom and christmas green tree, it render picture with great colors and resolution.

The Name is Bond: Even at a much lower resolution of the x-pro 1's LCD, I've ended up never using the optical viewfinder as the LCD was really so good that I've never felt limited or the need to upgrade.

But then, I've never spoiled myself by trying a newer camera.

I wear glasses and the EVF is almost unusable, it's hard to see image corner. I use mainly the OVF. I try the X-T1 EVF and there is big advance in 4 year.

AdamT: 24mp - great - shame they didn`t ditch X-Trans :( this would have been an excellent opportunity to do so .

Why ditch X-Trans ? this tech provide lower noise and don't need low pass filter.

Why every comment are complains ? Those lenses looks great, they cover FF sensor, so with an APS-C sensor they perform at their best. They all share the same filter, same max aperture. They are not plastic lenses and they come in X mount :) For X, only the 35mm is not interesting due to the fuji Offer.
On their site, they say "Without autofocus and electronic aperture control also for the version with SONY NEX and FUJI X mount systems" for me it's mean that they are pure manual lenses, with real time aperture control. So you focus at f2.4 and close to the desired aperture to take the shot.

Nice lense and sensor, you can even read the advertissement on the billboard of the conservatory "The Conservatory allows limited professional photography by PERMIT only" :)

straylightrun: Watch as this comments section fills up with confused people mistaking this entry level mirrorless body for an enthusiast model and complaining it doesnt have an EVF.

Sony A6000 with kit lense 16~50 cost 640€ and it have an EVF and a hot shoe. I guess this is why people complains. And it is the old 18mpx sensor ??? Maybe Canon found an unused stock and try to sell them...again :)

Miss some pic with the new keystone mode, focus bracketing/stacking and live composite.

Metabolikku: Olympus has been selling the same sensor since the beginning of 2012. That is quite a feat!

They imitate Canon :)

Please make Gallery working on phone. Only Chrome on my Android can display the gallery, Firefox and Dolphin show the exif panel full screen, with no drag avaible. On chrome, you can hide this huge panel by dragging it to the right.
And the "X" button close the selected gallery, not the info panel.

Scottelly: 960 fps at 1080p? That alone makes this camera worth buying. The 4K capability and weather sealing are the bonuses. I think I'm going to get one of these beasts.

The problems with the RX10 II are . . .

No GPS
It can't shoot as fast as Nikon's old 1" sensor cameras.
The screen only tilts, but does not twist/articulate.
It takes an FW50 battery instead of the bigger FM500H battery.
The lens is not interchangeable.

How can it do 1/32,000 second shutter speed?!?

It's not 960 fps at 1080 :

Look at the seven slide : "In Quality Priority mode, 960/1000fps mode yields only 1136 x 384 pixel capture, with 480/500fps made from 1676 x 566 pixels and 240/250fps upscaled only slightly from 1824 x 1026 capture."

1/32000 is doing with the electronic sensor. No mechanical moving part, electronic is silent, quick and deadly :)

On article Leica Q First Impressions Review (601 comments in total)
In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: So far, I've missed a comment noting the 50,000 ISO.

Hint, when Leica lists the top ISO, that's usually close to what anybody would use the camera at--so unlike Canikon/Sony/Pentax/Olympus/Samsung.

If this Leica is easy to use at ISO 25,000, in raw, that's a big deal.

For what i see from the photo, 25600 is noisy, and even 6400 is not that good, so 50 000 is just for emergency use

In reply to:

mr_landscape: CaNikon say bye-bye to most of your trusty fanatics;)

Nope, CaNikon have something very important, great choice of lenses, both in native and third party lenses. What really missing is something like the 40mm pancake Canon. Sony body is small and lightweight, but lenses are fat and heavy. Sony is mainly an electronic device maker, which produce good phone, pad, tv and camera body packed with electronic, but what lenses can i use on it ? Big Zeiss lenses, third party lenses with adapter and old school manual mode ? Old Minoltat A mount lenses with big adapter ?

It's auto-tag like Flickr ? IAll my 1000+ photos on Flickr are now auto tagged, and i must review all my collection to check the usefullness of this tagging.

On article Kowa announces pricing for three Micro Four Thirds lens (149 comments in total)

Kowabunga. It's video lenses, so they are full manual , full metal made, with t-stop and click-less aperture ring. And of course, they cost a kidney and weight a ton :)
They probably have the same color rendering too.

In reply to:

spidermoon: Like the K-S1, the DOF switch is replace by the video switch, and there is no dedicated button for dof check. Maybe nowdays it's an outdated feature since you can review your picture after taking it.

That what i do, but i miss the green button :( Maybe on the K-S3 there is some fn button, so you can tweak your camera the way you want.

In reply to:

Russell Evans: DPR Staff,

Is the extension of the 18-50mm lens powered, or is it done manually by pressing in the lock and rotating the zoom ring?

It looks like in photo number 7 that the camera has a swappable focus screen, do you have any information about this?

How is the LCD held in place? It is friction, or magnetic? Does the screen lock into the body with the screen reversed?

Does the camera have focus points in the viewfinder?

A lot of people are wondering about the shutter noise, did anyone have a chance to shoot with the camera?

Was the new WR flash on display? Any photos of it on a camera? It's a little hard to imagine the size. It seems small since it uses AAA batteries, but I haven't seen a photo of it with something else so I'm not really sure?

You can swap focus screen.

I have the K-S1 and shutter noise never bother me, i can't say if it is low or high, it simply never distracted me. BTW, only mirroless with electronic shutter can shoot silently. The K-S1 have focus point and have the same focusing screen than the k-S2, so i guess it have focus point too.
