  • +1 for viewfinder. Even my RX100M3 has one. Too many times the LCD glare prevented me from framing an image properly, choosing the right focus target or seeing the setting in quick menu. Most of...

  • Please let it have a reasonably quiet shutter, or a silent one as in the A7s?

  • Commented on P1010199 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    This cam seems to have trouble with skin tones in the shade or low light. Her temple and forehead by her hairline are off color, almost smudged with soot. Her hands look fine so it may just be you...

    I'm more concerned about the color of the cheeks near her chin and hair. Definitely not good skin tone.

  • There appears to be a difference between the mk2 and mk3 but from what I'm reading if you're shooting jpg the high ISO output is better on the mk2. The mk3 is supposed to have better sharpening....

  • I have the V3 with its 70-300mm zoom producing 800mm+. You won't get anywhere near that on LX100. Birders love the Nikon 1 series. 70mm is just too short for most of what I shoot, wish it had been...

  • I wonder if it uses the RX100II sensor instead of RX100III. After all, why would Sony let a competitor use the most advanced sensor they have? Even the RX10 uses the older RX100II sensor. Hopefully...

  • You got me, the X-S1 is bigger. But the FZ1000 is a far cry from any TINY compact bridge camera.

  • The really annoying thing with these cameras is before you can use them you have to select them as your wifi connection in your phone. Which means your phone is no longer connected to the Internet...

  • I have the FZ1000 and it is easily the biggest of the bridge cameras. The Sony RX10 is smaller but heavier due to higher quality materials, it uses metal in a lot of places the FZ1000 uses plastic.

  • Nikon uses Aptina sensor. Sony makes sensors for a lot of other makers including Nikon but for some reason Nikon couldn't or wouldn't use the Sony sensor. Nikon 1 claim to fame is extremely fast...

  • The XE2 is new and not heavily discounted, you must mean the XE1. But you still have to buy glass and although Fuji lenses are terrific they are anything but cheap. Also you're not going to slip...

  • In what universe is Sony's 1" sensor 200% larger than Fuji's 2/3" sensor?? And the RX100III lens may be slightly wider (4mm) but is 42mm shorter focal length (70 vs 112mm). People who buy lottery...

  • You can't just 'jump on 1" bandwagon' . Sony makes their own 1" sensor. Nikon uses Aptina sensor. And Fuji prides themselves on their sensors and the IQ they produce. And the Fuji 2/3" sensor is...

  • Sony RX100III only zooms to 70mm. To runout to 112 and have fast aperture the lens would have to be bigger.

  • Nikon D4s is considered the high ISO leader, why not include that in the test?

  • The A7s can shoot 4K video and has a silent shutter. The A7 has both PDAF and CDAF focusing. If it wasn't for the loud shutter I might opt for it but may wait for the next release of the A7 which...

  • I looked at this camera last weekend at my pro shop's open house with a Leica rep present. Impressive build but the menu interface was stunningly bland. It was like playing pong compared to one of...

  • Bentley recently shot an ad video entirely on oPhone 5s.
