    Sony huge price jump on RX1R II

    It's no mystery. It's simply currency adjustments. The Yen is up against the Dollar 20% in the last year. Correspondingly, the price is up 20% in the last year. Similarly, the Yen is also up against the Euro. I guess it took 2 mins for this explanation to sink in from when we discussed it...

    Samsung True. Samsung NX Camera's are finished.

    Sony has been in imaging for decades, even before they bought out Minolta. They were the market leader in broadcast video. They literally set the standards for that industry from umatic to beta. Which mounts has Sony dropped? The only two consumer mounts I know about are A Mount and E Mount...

    Samsung True. Samsung NX Camera's are finished.

    It's been known for a few months now that Samsung has gotten out of the camera business. The rumor is that Nikon will buy or has bought their camera IP.

    Sony Sony RX100 IV announced.

    Drives are cheap. :) I've been there for years already. I shoot 3 brackets RAW. So every time I snap a shot, I think of it as 100MB. I can easily hit the shutter 10 times a minute. I do think continuous photography is the future. There have probably been discussions like this every time...

    Just use a video editor and grab any frame you want.

    Sony Sony RX100 IV announced.

    Sony does a variety of things with stacked sensors. Everything from increased sensitivity, to PDAF support to full RGB processing like Foveon. In this case, I think it only increased sensitivity. I think of it as BSI 2. Video is very important to me. So 4K is big. But even if you don't do...

    Sony Sony RX100 IV announced.

    It's a monster. 4K video, upgraded EVF and a stacked sensor. But $1000 for a P&S camera.... Whew. http://www.dpreview.com/articles/7826270294/sony-cyber-shot-dsc-rx100-iv-shoots-4k-uses-a-stacked-sensor

    Canon Dynamic range of G1X

    You are absolutely right. I did think you guys were talking about the Panasonic GX1. That clears something up for me. There was talk about the 2nd edition of the camera. I didn't think there was a 2nd rev of the GX1 and googled but couldn't find anything. That's because I was thinking of...

    Canon Dynamic range of G1X

    I was recently in Japan and considered buying a used GX1 there. They are going for about $75 for the body. It's Japanese used otherwise known as mint in the rest of the world. The same $75 will get you a G5. GF2s are still strangely selling for $200 but GF5s are under $50.

    RX100 value

    In that case, the last thing Amazon.de shipped me cost $15 for shipping. Considering the cost of the item, I think that was cheaper than it would have cost to ship it from San Francisco to New York with the same declared value. I remember when shipping internationally was really expensive. No...

    Sigma SD1 = $1999 USD

    Thanks for that. The only reason to even think about getting a SD1 for me was to use my hoard of lenses. But if it doesn't work well with that, then there's no point.

    RX100 value

    It's German, Deutsche. You don't need to read German. Google Translate/Chrome works really well converting German pages to English. Probably because English is a Germanic language. I don't even do that. It's just an Amazon page so I'm familiar with the workflow. I didn't realize you were...

    Sigma SD1 = $1999 USD

    The SD1 Merrill is $755 new from Amazon. I always wanted a merrill. Either the SD1 or one of the DPs. I've been struggling about buying one for weeks at these blowout prices. In the end, I think I'll wait for Sony. Sony has full RGB sensors in the works so it's only a matter of time. The...

    RX100 value

    Here's the link. The price is in euros including vat. If shipped to the US, the vat is removed so the price becomes 278 euros. Converted back to dollars that's right around $300 at the current spot price for the euro. Do not let Amazon charge you in dollars. They offer a horrible rate...
