  • Many didn't want to give up CF because they had spent tons of money on storage, not really considering the fact memory is no longer an expensive aspect of photography. Most people that had spent...

  • Custom sensor according to the text above.

  • I think 2 or 3 MP is fine for most users, that will do a pretty nice 8x10 print, display to HD TV, or similar.

  • Get a Sony A7/A7R with Sony 55mm f/1.8. That lens is every bit as good and a fraction the weight. Full frame to boot.

  • I have a QX10 and it makes a nice paper weight. Honestly the Wi-Fi doesn't work as well as my NX30 and it is just as bulky when you add the phone. It is really unwieldy on my Galaxy S4 and slow. ...

  • The NX30 has a superb quality touch screen (sensitive and responsive). Not sure you will find that on any DSLR. There are reasons to buy both. Why would someone buy a D7100 when they can get a...

  • Commented on Hands on with the Pentax 645Z news story

    Sensor size is more important in terms of resolution than number of pixels. A larger sensor doesn't have to be enlarged as much and doesn't strain lenses as much. Most of the current 135 format...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    I agree that DSLR cameras can be very accurate, but I prefer that a mirrorless camera is accurate with any lens anywhere in the frame (phase detect fails near the edges because of how it works,...

    I agree that DSLR cameras can be very accurate, but I prefer that a mirrorless camera is accurate with any lens anywhere in the frame with absolutely no calibration (phase detect fails near the...

    Maybe you should try one?

    Sony has only a few native lenses. Fail. I would buy based on which system fits your needs better. The Fuji X has a very complete and capable set of lenses. Today. I have A7R and it is a great...

    "Extremely accurate single-shot autofocus, even with fast lenses"

    This is why I won't shoot a DSLR if I can help it. After going mirrorless I like that my photos are more reliably in focus. ...

  • Compare RAW to Sony NEX 7 and it is very similar. DXO Mark will confirm this (check NX300).

  • Depends on the lens. The 45mm f/1.8 focuses almost instantly, as fast or faster than most DSLR and 50mm lenses. Some of the other lenses are notably slower. It will still hunt in low light of...

  • Maxnimo, with computer processors you notice an improvement. 4k doesn't really offer a big improvement in viewing experience. Not a valid analogy. I can't really tell the difference between...

  • An AA filter is an absolute must for a 12 MP full frame camera. It would be terrible for stills without one unless you want to brush every single image for moire removal :)

  • The 24-70mm is not large at all in practice. It isn't nearly as large as it looks.
