  • The new self congratulating website was worth the wait.
    They should also put "one more thing" and reveal new countdown timer using now progressively reassuring red numbers.

  • So you are saying that people are not so interested to line up to try cameras that are not much different than cameras last year? Why this could be? And don't blame it to global downturn, because...

  • I wanted to say impressive for the price, then I saw $899 tag. What?
    So the $900 now became the norm for premium compacts? Only few years ago, this category was barely touching $500

  • I have RX100 and everybody knows it is super small. But put it against x10 and you would realize that the rx100 is about maybe 80% of x10, it just the x10 looks bigger because of the many knobs and...

  • I don't see need to stuff big sensor in a small body for enthusiastic.
    Even the small sensors in $600 cams should produce a significantly better image than a high end smartphone otherwise people...

  • This is stupid sorry to say it as I see it, to make "social-oriented" camera. The best social-oriented camera is called smartphone and it is already in pocket of everybody who is into this self...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    In my neck of the woods pentax is not successful at all. No big box store like best buy carry any of the K or Q and the specialized photo stores have just extremely limited stock of the latest...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    The only problem I have with pentax is their naming conventions. It is total mess with adding letters and numbers that are in descending order after the K. All the K-x, K-r, K-s.. get some system!

  • Hopefully it is build a bit better than other PLs. My PL-2 lost its shutter button after a week. Fortunately I did found it and then superglue it back, but seriously...

  • Tiny add-on flash is usually a very cheap solution, while add-on EVF would cost hundreds of dollars. Modern cameras are amazing even in dark and give more natural look without the flatness and...

  • Wow, pretty nifty camera. It is interesting how everybody can now squeeze large sensor into a compact body...

  • Looking forward the new fw for x100s

  • Well duh, I assume everyone knows those basics. But how about to dig deep, how photon excites the well, how the well size affect effectivity, a crosstalk between pixels wen electrons jump and all...

  • How does it relate to the WB set in your camera? I assume if you going with a calibration you don't use AWB, right? or it will mess up the whole thing. So you set your WB to say daylight, shoot the...

  • Reading many of the comments I got finally completely confused. There are totally contradictory statements which shows that we (as a group) actually don't have any idea how sensor technology works....

  • "You won't see increased noise in this masked sensor..."
    "Yes, you will."
    Such statement is exactly why this topic is such a mess. Me personally I have absolutely no idea why masking part of the...

  • Those are really something!

  • I thing the guy behind it must be a marketing genius to get so much venture capital behind him. Some nifty way of persuasion. In our local store they have one open box lytro camera for more than a...
