DL24-85 Nikon, Canon G7 X Mark II, TZ100 Panasonic and Fujifilm X70 is proof that the CDs are not a thing of the past. Compared to you the latest pocket cameras for professionals.
Increasingly, we hear that the CDs there is no place on the market. And all thanks to photographic smartphones. Nevertheless, for some time the growing popularity of advanced compacts, ie those that are still spending money, but the image quality does not deviate far from even bezlusterkowców with interchangeable lenses. To this group belong four latest, this year's proposals: DL24-85 Nikon, Canon G7 X Mark II, TZ100 Panasonic and Fujifilm X70.
We begin with the latest model. DL24-85 offers a 1-inch display with a resolution of 20.8 megapixels. Zoom lens provides focal range the order of 24-85 mm, but especially impressive is the brightness of the lens – f / 1.8-2.8. The camera has a hot shoe and a built-in flash, the system uses the popular "pop-up" after the lock is released.We have also a pivoted 180 degrees screen. ISO can be set in the range of 100-12800. Autofocus is 171 punks contrast detection. For this optical image stabilization, electronic shutter with the shortest time 1/16000 seconds Movie mode with quality 4K 30 fps. What rare compacts, we will have a microphone input. Also not forgotten about WiFi and NFC. Behind the camera will pay 3099 zł.
Canon G7 X Mark II
Canon's advanced compact market is a long time – two years ago, we tested the camera G1 X Mark II. The matrix of the new model – G7 X Mark II – has a resolution of 20.1 megapixels, ie slightly less than the Nikon. But the larger the focal length range – it starts from 24 mm (as in Nikon) but ends of 100 mm. Room for maneuver is so much greater. The brightness of the lens is f / 1.8-2.8, so just as a competitor above.ISO range is slightly wider, as is 125-25600, but on the other hand, more than higher values could use a lower minimum value, in the end, and so at the highest ISO the amount of noise will be quite unacceptable. Here we also have a 3-inch display pivoted 180 degrees and flash that pops up. No, unfortunately, hot shoe. Worse, it falls movie mode – "only" Full HD at 60 frames per second. There will not be, unfortunately, 4K, and so in terms of a film camera loses a lot of models of Nikon. We have this image stabilization and standard WiFi and NFC. Price? $ 700. The question is how this will translate into Polish conditions, but you can suspect that it will be higher than the model Nikon, which makes the latter so far wins.
The proposal Panasonic looks very interesting. Soon you will learn more about Lumiksie TZ80, which just testing, but it TZ100jest a top compact camera manufacturer. The list of equipment was a 1-inch display and a resolution of 20 megapixels (just as in the two previous cases), the lens offers a much broader range of focal lengths, as many as 25-250 mm. Unfortunately, it also has its drawbacks – is much darker than the optics Canon and Nikon (f / 2.8-5.6).While at full hole is quite clear, so much the closer we will have a big problem. Can help a wide range of ISO, the same as in the model of Canon, or 125-25600. For this electronic shutter with the shortest time 1/16000 s. Unfortunately, in contrast to the above two models, 3-inch display is not odchylimy, some compensation, however, is the presence of a digital viewfinder. The flash pops up, but at the same time takes the place of the hot slopes, which in this model will not experience. Movie mode, as the camera manufacturer, is doing well. Thus we get the quality of 4K at 30 frames per second. We also have 5-axis image stabilization. Besides WIFI, but without the NFC. So far it is difficult to comprehensively compare the camera to the competition, because it has not met his price, and that from it largely depends on its success.
Fujifilm X70 was presented in mid-January. He was on our list of advanced compact planned for this year, although it is significantly different from the other three models. The main difference is the matrix – Fuji went a step further than the competition, and instead of the matrix 1-inch get APS-C known for cameras with interchangeable lenses. Another important difference is the lens. The X70 does not get a zoom, but stalk a focal length of 28 mm f / 2.8. There is nothing to hide, however, that despite its clarity of the lens can be a downside camera, because users compacts expect a wide range of focal lengths, since one can not detach the lens and mount another.Slightly worse it is with the resolution, because the matrix is equipped with a 16.3 megapixel camera. Although of course, image quality thanks to APS-C, and so may be better than compacts with the matrix 1-inch. Model offers us the widest among comparable devices ISO range of between 100 to 51200th Also, the electronic shutter achieves the best results – 1/32000 sec. Just like Canon and Nikon, and here we have a 3-inch screen that allows you to bend 180 degrees. The flash is for firmly attached in the front part of the body. We also have a hot shoe. Can make movies in Full HD 60 fps. Priced model promises to be the same as compact Canon – $ 700. But how it will be converted to a buck? We do not know.

As you can see above, manufacturers began to notice that the compact camera can compete with a smartphone only if they offer a high quality, which can not be a camera phone. Unfortunately, for such a solution needs to be properly paid. But the matrix 1-inch, combined with a long, bright lens, the screen is selfie, 4K quality for movies, and wireless connectivity is what the compact exceeds smartphones. Even high-end phones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 or LG G5. Who run in the statement? With major market manufacturers even Olympus and Sony. This first presented last year an interesting stylus SH-2, but that other one kompaktowi lack of good matrix. Still we are waiting for an advanced compact Japanese. In the list there is also Sony, which the market bezlusterkowców CDs and doing very well, but the manufacturer of most of the news show last year and this probably przystopuje them. Among the advanced compact adept even RX100 IV.
