On White House ban on photos and social media has ended article (27 comments in total)

I guess the full frame Sony RX1r (minus lens hood) would be a great camera to use in the Whitehouse ;)

I shot some 4K UHD videos of the moon with my Samsung NX1 the past week with 920mm F9 and 1480mm F6.3 scopes.

On Opinion: Did Sony just do the impossible? article (1035 comments in total)
In reply to:

ttran88: Canon XC10 is more important than this camera. 4k no Lossy RAW. Only $2500

The RX10 II is a better camera than the XC10 for much less money. The XC10 doesn't even have an EVF, it uses a loupe on the LCD.

My last DSLR purchase was the Pentax K-7 in July 2009 and after getting the GH2 in December 2010 and using my K mount lenses for 1080p I never had a desire to purchase another DSLR. My current cameras are the NX1, GH4, A7r and VG900 full frame camcorder. My guess is DSLRs will be mostly gone from the consumer camera market within the next ten years.

Mssimo: Wow 82mm filter. Huge front element.

I sold my Pentax 6x7 55mm F3.5 wide angle lens with nine 100mm Pentax filters a few months ago on ebay.

It's funny how Pentax fanboys are saying it will be on K-mount too. The hot selling full frame Sony A7 line would be getting this before the full frame Pentax that will not be a hot seller since many are now using their Pentax lenses on mirrorless system cameras like the low cost full frame Sony A7. With the new A7r II and A7s II coming Ricoh will have a hard time trying to sell many of the new full frame Pentax DSLRs unless it has the latest tech like 4K but Ricoh already said they are not interested in video.

In reply to:

paulfulper: The best SUPERZOOM I'm waiting for is....
6.6 x 8.8 sensor , twice the size of all the other superzoom
backside illuminated CMOS
24-2200 zoom.
5 axis stabilization
full manual control beside the automatic
hot shoe flash and pop up flash
4k video
without RAW , NFC and WI FI to lower the cost ( I don't need them )
$1.200 us
That's my dream

The SMC Pentax-FA* 250-600mm F5.6 ED [IF] power zoom lens is larger with 112mm filter.

Joe Ogiba: I have the Panasonic GH4 but Panasonic dropped the ball on this by saying it has 4K video recording @15fps. It needs 30fps like all of the smartphones out there with 4K video .

I have the 6.44" Sony Xperia Z Ultra smartphone and Sony QX1 APS-C 20mp smartphone camera with E mount that attaches to my Z Ultra case that has a mount built-in. I have many E and FE mount lenses that I use with my A7r that work great with the QX1. For 4K video I use my GH4 or NX1.

I simply carry my Sony Xperia Z Ultra smartphone without the QX1 99% of the time and is a much better smartphone than the CM1 with 6.44" display compared to the small 4.7" CM1.

The QX1 had raw capture from day one.

"The new E-mount ILCE-QX1 model is the world's first lens-style camera that gives photography enthusiasts a whole new way to take advantage of their α Mount System* lens collection.

Compatible with Sony's growing range of E-mount lens offerings including zoom, portrait, wide-angle, macro and more, the new QX1 camera features a built-in 20.1 megapixel APS-C size Exmor CMOS sensor that grabs huge amounts of detail for landscape shots and beautiful ‘bokeh' background defocus. It's teamed with Sony's advanced BIONZ X processor that now features improved area-specific noise reduction for stunning low-light images.

The unique new QX1 camera features a wealth of other premium features, including Superior Auto, RAW image shooting and a pop-up flash to brighten up portraits in backlight situation, gloomy interiors and night scenes. "

On Canon PowerShot G3 X: What you need to know article (561 comments in total)
In reply to:

howardfuhrman: After reading about 50 or so comments, dpreview contributors are definitely not Canon's target market for the G3X.

That is correct, the G3X is only for Canon buyers who enjoy paying more for less.

On Canon PowerShot G3 X: What you need to know article (561 comments in total)
In reply to:

Adrian Van: Of the 3 cameras shown, the Panasonic FZ1000 offers a balance of superior features with sufficient 400mm zoom, to Canon G3X, for less money.

The Sony RX10-II probably offers the best image and video quality as it has the brand new 1" stacked CMOS sensor, and continuous F2.8 lens 24-200mm and high frame rate video full HD, up to 100mbps, and 4K and could be considered semi pro/pro, as some pros could use Sony as a B camera (or A camera for small budget) and in moderate light should have very impressive video compared to larger camera sensors. Hence it's $1300 price is justified. Read Kirk Tuck's blog, who likes its specifications.

Canon has longest zoom in smallest body with 5 axis stabilized (optical and digital stabilized).

Other than compact size for general consumer for Canon, the other 2 cameras sound superior in features over Canon unless small size is your preference.

The only 4K UHD camera Canon has to compare to the new RX10 II is the XC10 . Samsung has the 4K UHD NX500 with APS-C sensor and 16-50 power zoom OIS lens for $599. Samsung, Sony and Panasonic are the only three today making 4K UHD cameras under $2,000.

On Canon PowerShot G3 X: What you need to know article (561 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: Nowadays (not for canon only), all the cams have great "on paper" features. But real life says different. Such as
- FZ1000 is a huge cam even other goodies.
- RX10II is so expensive that you should sell your car.
etc... I wonder what will this new guy show a a "bad surprise".

Biggest positive result is; compact camera sensors no more smaller than 1".

Compare the$999 Canon G3X with 1080p to the $998 RX10 with 1080p . The RX10 II with 4K UHD should be compared to the Canon XC10 with 4K UHD.

On Week in Review: Sony FTW article (302 comments in total)
In reply to:

justmeMN: Reality check: According to Sony's May 27, 2015 financial documents, Sony's worldwide ILC market share is a weak (by value) 11%. The introduction of a new $3,200 camera body won't significantly change that.

Smartphones, not Sony, are the biggest threat to Canon and Nikon cameras.

I don't really have anything against Sony cameras, but the breathless hyperbole surrounding them is just silly.

DSLRs with the flipping mirror is not the future . It's funny to see people with their huge DSLRs in 2015 . Mirrorless cameras have 99% of the consumer camera market today .
