I wish I had the money to shoot medium format.

A lens is only as sharp as the camera it is used with. I am guessing they didn't use a Canon camera for the test.

On Nikon 1 J4 sports new sensor, improved AF system, and Wi-Fi news story (207 comments in total)

Nikon is just trying too hard now to make this camera system fail. They test out some good features that they will put on DSLRs soon but then cripple the camera with new batteries, non-typical SD cards, and ridiculous initial price.

It is almost like they are just daring people to look elsewhere.

I really wish this camera had been the Nikon J1 instead the J4. These specs are pretty good. Too bad it is probably too late for this series to really ever make a difference.

It is very cool for its intended purpose.

I wonder how much the Hasselbad version of this camera will cost? 1 Trillion Dollars?

The more the merrier.

Sony and Panasonic have put up some very tempting offers. Nikon your up to bat. Canon has been playing with daisies in left field for a long time now.

The GH4 and the A7s are two totally different cameras. The GH4 is meant to be a universal solution. Average users could us it as an everyday hybrid camera. Pros could use it as a really nice 4K video camera.

The A7s is meant solely for pro videographers or more specifically pro wedding videographers. It will be incredible for low light with nice big full frame lenses. However, it will need to be tethered for 4K footage.

Both are great but neither is a true competitor for the other.

Does this thing only record 4K to an external device?

Already ordered a 64GB card. Hope it works as they said it will with my new GH4.

On Canon launches XF205 and XF200 HD professional camcorders news story (69 comments in total)

What is crazy is that this camcorder is labeled as “Professional” because it sticks to the antiquated specs that broadcasters demand. However, cameras like the Panasonic GH4 are called “Toys” when they shoot 4k @ 30 FPS video with capabilities for high quality audio and 4:2:2 10 bit color.

Being “Professional” no longer means it is better. It just means that it meets a standard required for a specific job.

Does that Gene make your lame jokes funny or make you laugh at lame jokes?

That is not an April Fool's joke. This is an April Fool's joke. Stick to reporting the camera news. Don't try to become a rumors site.

mpgxsvcd: If this was a Canon or Sony camera I would say that it would sell pretty well. However, it is an Olympus camera and their marketing isn’t nearly what their competitors is. This is just another run of the mill small sensor compact with an unreasonably long telephoto lens.

Sure it has some great features like the 5-axis IS, 120 FPS 720p, and Pen style design. However, its lens is just too slow at the long end. In all likelihood this won’t improve a novice users images over what they have right now.

I am still waiting for a better compact camera than the LX7 and RX100 II.

I have an 800mm telescope that works just fine for my astro photographs. You don’t need almost the same focal length for terrestrial. Use lossless sensor crop modes. These cameras have plenty of resolution for that to be a suitable alternative to a ridiculous super zoom.

The problem is that consumers think they need a super zoom and what they actually need is a fast mid range telephoto.
