    Canon Showcase Canon G7X Image Thread

    Makes sense. And I agree with the Nikon. But maybe I also got used to the Sony Menu which many people hate, and find the RX100 OOC settings much more versatile (I prefer to PP only the more worthy pics and keep a nicer OOC for the others)... I wanted to try a Canon and the 24-100 lens reach made...

    Canon Showcase Canon G7X Image Thread

    Nice pics. Somehow I never warmed to the camera. Maybe it needs a little more PP on my part to enjoy the results, I don't know.

    I've never shot with a Fuji and admit I'm curious, but you can customize your Jpegs in so many ways with the RX1r, you can get some really good ones, many keepers. I realized that with my little Canon G7X which I find lacking in JPG settings compared to my RX100MII. But I assume you have more...

    Sony Showcase Sony A7 and 7r Image thread

    Hey christilou, Was also in the RX1 forum, but I have to say that some of your best (if not the best) photos are here! Congratulations! I saw while checking this thread to help me decide if I'll jump on the A7R II or will go to the Oly EM-5 II. I now want something a little longer to...

    Fuji Fuji X-T1 First Impressions + Why I Switched from Sony

    Thanks for trouble, I did like the reading! But I guess there is no plain agreeing or not, it is all so subjective. First there is perception of the photos one is taking (each eye sees differently), then there is taste, then there is how one expresses it in words. I say that, because I agree...

    Canon Showcase Canon G7X Image Thread

    Some help here (I hope it is not the wrong place to ask): As far as I understand, the main difference between the G7X and the RX100 "Mx" in terms of IQ are: - zooming or in 100% (pixel peeping), the corners of the G7X in 24mm (or close to that) and in 100mm WITH aperture completely open are...

    Glad you enjoyed. Yes, Amalfi is one of the most beautiful places anywhere. And it passed the "second trip" test! It's always a risk to come back and ruin an amazing memory. But I liked the second time as much! I do similar PP: Photo Ninja+ NIK. I'll try to isolate the area or soften as...

    Yes, I exaggerated the detail/sharpening, I kind of liked the pointilistic/convoluted look when you see the picture a little bigger... kkk I'll try the softening, thanks!

    Amalfi This is just a thank you note to Ray, who is always helpful when advice is asked: When I was there at Amalfi I remembered your pictures and was thankful for your comments that helped me decide on my gear! BTW, the second one I kind of like, but I could not manage well PP on the border...

    Lines Nothing major, but I liked to play with the lines, and certain pride with the "Dome", which was handheld with no crop: I couldn't position myself right below the hole, and despite that I got almost prefect symmetry, which IN THIS CASE was part of the attraction to get the photo "right"...

    Well, thanks! It was the moon, the camera, and a little patience... I might have straighten the horizon like below, but I don't know which I prefer, there is some charm in not cropping and using whatever you manage to get on spot. Too many easy options in digital photography...

    Italy As I bought my RX1r while doing a major job, before my work ended I could only try to learn about the camera and its possibilities a little. That's what I did reading the manual, and forums. But you have to be on the field to really understand your usage and how much you like it or not...

    Fuji X-T1 Thoughts & Samples

    I know this is a Fuji thread, but since I brought up the "selfie" issue a few pages back, I'll just post one fun picture I took with the help of the tiltable LCD of the NEX 5T coupled with a Rokinon fish eye 8mm, which I eneded up buying. I believe it would be very difficult to get a picture...

    Ray, Thank you so much for your explanation. You are very kind to be so detailed in your answers. So it seems not much difference in PP from the RX1, right? Mostly when shooting, with the Velvia setup and the X-Trans by itself. Is that correct to assume? I ask this, because, I maybe wrong...

    Cool... What type of PP of the first and second to get the colors? The last one is just long exposure to achieve the "ghost" effect? Just trying to learn, appreciate any insight (just general idea, don't have to be thorough) if it is not too much trouble. Thanks

    Sony back from trip and innitial RX1 feedback...

    From my experience in Cinema, if the need arises, in darker scenes, the DPs normally prefer to risk overexposing a little bit than to have to push from the black in PP. But that's 35 mm, I don't know if digital is different.

    Sure, the composition/framing is quite nice, but I loved their "texture". Looks like some PP, except the lady which may be the lighting.

    Sony RX1 and Fuji X100s - A Comparison (long!)

    Just to say I took the plunge and bought a RX1r. That was my tendency technically anyway, and I found an OK deal for Brazilian standards. Almost the same I would pay in the US, and here the X100S was not even 30% cheaper, as opposed to less than 50% of the RX1 over there. As i said, this was...

    Thank you everybody. Taking all in. rbelyell, Luke, I'll check out the X100 more. What makes the choice harder is that I don't have the possibility, as Americans do, to play with the camera for a while and then make up my mind. I have to make it up with research and opinions. Luckily, I have...

    Thanks so much. You are very thorough in your posts and this helps a lot!!! When you say RX1 is "more forgiving", this is very important for me. I'm not that experienced and kind of lazy, and my perception is that the photos I see around from the X100S are much more dependent on the...

I have this very same doubt right now: I shall buy a new camera in May and am deciding between these two, RX1, X100S, unless something more interesting appear in the meantime, which doesn't seem likely... After more than half a year from the last post, I would like...
